Salvation is a gift of God’s Love and Grace. When a person believes on Jesus Christ and receives Him as Lord and Savior; the Messiah sent from God for the remission of his or her sin, what are they saved from? What is the eternal consequence of sin? The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death; which is eternal separation from God.” So for eternity, real Salvation assures us of living in God’s paradise, His New Heaven and New Earth forever.

How does Salvation benefit our life on earth?

When we repent of our sins (ask Jesus to forgive us), receive Jesus into our lives, His Spirit (same as Spirit of God) joins to our human spirit, and He has promised never to leave us. His Spirit will inspire and give us understanding of His Word; the Holy Scriptures God has given as a guideline for our lives. God has not promised that we will never go through tough times in our lives, but as we apply His Word and do our best to live by His commandments, He will see us through, and we will triumph. He will protect and keep us from danger as we believe, trust and thank Him for sending His angels to watch over us.

Living life’s journey walking with Jesus Christ has many rewards and benefits for us, our families and those around us. Every promise in God’s great Book is ours, but must be received by Faith. God’s Grace through the precious Blood Jesus willingly shed is sufficient for all our needs; spirit, soul (mind, will and emotion) and body.

God created mankind to fellowship with Him, for a relationship and a Partnership in defeating evil (the fallen angels) on this earth.

What is sin? “Sin is not a created substance, but is an act of rebellion based on free will.” Rebellion against what; refusing to follow the guidelines God has set up for the most beneficial life and well-being of man-kind.

Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Salvation is something we can’t earn or pay for. It is paid for us and it is free, Jesus paid for it at Calvary. We must desire Salvation; because it cannot be forced on anyone. Real Love can’t be forced, it must be freely given. God cannot make us love him; yet He loved us first before we loved him.

1John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

God knew He couldn’t force His angels or mankind to Love him; God gave his angels and mankind “freewill.”

Free-will has always been in the heart of God.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Are we predestined? Does God choose only those he wants to be saved? Are all of our choices made for us? Absolutely Not. This is one of the fables in our Modern Theology. We are not all puppets; and God doesn’t control evil or evil man’s deeds.

In one verse, John 3:16, (the most memorized verse in all Christianity) God says He gave us Salvation and Salvation is for anyone who will choose. And it is straight from the lips of Jesus; in red letters in the New Testament:

John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

*John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Predestination and free-will are opposites; and cannot be blended together as some have tried to teach. You have one or the other. It is not God’s will for anyone to perish:

2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

And he has no respecter of persons:

Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

God is Love:

* 1John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

In this first blog, we have learned that freewill is in God’s character; it is part of His Love, and a part of his first covenant with his Angels and man-kind. (Which we will study in depth later).
