Blog/LessonThree What are The Benefits of Receiving Salvation?

Did you know that Christianity is the only religion that believes God actually joins to our spiritual heart? He lives inside us and communicates with us in fellowship and guidance through His Word and pray

There are too many benefits to name, but in this lesson, I will attempt to offer some of the main benefits. Every promise in the Bible is for our benefit, and is a gift of God to His children.

My Mother, Bessie Townsend Raymer, was healed from two different kinds of cancer, twenty four years apart. And cancer did not take her life; she lived her full life out until she was 85 years old. She passed away without pain or pain meds. A worn out body and heart took her life; irreversible congestive heart failure. Her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and in his Word proved to the end that her God was certainly alive, and faithful to His promises. A few of her favorite Scriptures were:

Psa 103:1 A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Psa 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Jas 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

Jas 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

Jas 5:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

(Mom’s detailed testimonies will be in my coming series: The Truth About God, Book Three; which will include God’s Gifts: Infilling of Holy Spirit, Faith and Healing.)

These verses indicate that God’s main gifts to us are: 1) Forgiving all our sins and 2) Healing all our diseases.

Whatever need arises, Jesus took care of it at Calvary:

Joh 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Joh 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

If we abide in God; meaning keep his commandments, and keep his Word before our eyes and in our hearts, then we will have the faith to receive what we ask the Lord for. When our prayers are answered, and our life produces God’s fruit then He is glorified. I can truly say God was glorified in my Mom’s and Dad’s lives. They were faithful to God; and His gifts and fruit of His Spirit was evident in their lives. If we do our part, God is always faithful to keep his promises.

Every gift and promise of God is received by faith. And without faith there is no Salvation.

Psa 103:1 A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

They were faithful to God; and His gifts and fruit of His Spirit was evident in their lives. If we do our part, God is always faithful to keep his promises.

Every gift and promise of God is received by faith. And without faith there is no Salvation.

Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

It is God’s good pleasure to give good gifts to his children.

Mat 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

And if we receive all his gifts by faith, then without faith it is impossible to please God. God’s gifts equip us to do His will on earth and build his kingdom.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Faith believes and accepts the miracle before the miracle is seen:

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

God spoke creation into existence and things were made out of what was not yet seen, which is the way faith works. Some have said, “Well if I could just see a miracle, then I would believe.” I agree, one miracle does encourage others to believe, but belief comes before a miracle.

What is faith, and how do we get it?

Notice the two hearings in the following Scripture:

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Faith begins with 1) hearing the word of God (preached, taught or read) and believing it. But just believing God can is not enough alone to receive the miracle.

Faith is complete by 2) hearing the voice of God, from within our spirit; the knowing, or evidence which is Divine Assurance. Then our works: action/ choice to receive, obedience, plus patience and perseverance equals the miracle.

One of God’s most valuable gifts to our daily lives is peace of mind; His tranquility in a troubled world around us. Only Jesus can instantly change fear and anxiety into peace; He can do what medicine can’t.

After we have received Jesus into our spirit heart, He has promised never to leave us alone:

Heb 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Heb 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Jesus wants us to give all our cares (worries, frustrations) to him, for he cares for every one of us:

1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

God will keep our hearts and minds no matter what is going on around us if we keep our mind on Him:

Php 4:6 Be careful for nothing;[means, don’t worry] but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

We are to pray: ”Lord, I thank you for loving me and dying for me on that cross so I can live free from sin and shame, fear and anxiety. I thank you for the strips you took on your back for my health and healing. I thank you that every promise in your Book is for me. I give you honor and praise for all Good gifts.” Amen

Php 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

The Benefits of Salvation are God’s gifts and promises to every human being and are basically for three reasons 1) to assist in our personal life here on earth 2) to help lead others to Him, building God’s Kingdom 3) and the promise of being in God’s presence in His beautiful Heaven for all eternity.
