The Salvation Prayer – is it a Powerful Sacrament or has it become an Abused Tool?

The Salvation Poem

The Salvation Poem
Jesus Loves You!

Jesus came to save the lost
That is why He died upon on the cross.
Jesus loves you and me
Shedding His blood on Calvary
That we all may forever be free.

He came to rescue us from Eternal Death
Saving us from Hell, He gave us His breath.
The Holy Spirit has been sent to live inside us,
And every man can have this New Birth.
Now we can be free from sin and shame,
If only we will call upon His name.

We can call on Him in times of trouble
He be right there, on the double.
He always listens whenever we’re sad

SALVATION: GOD’S REMEDY FOR SIN

HEBREWS 6:13-20 (KJV)

I will begin with Hebrews 6 verses 13-18 where it talks about the promise that God made to Abraham. He sealed this promise with two immutable things “in which [it was] impossible for God to lie (Hebrews 6:18).” In other words, God’s promise would come to pass. If He said it, it was as good as done.

THE TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS

13) For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

14) Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.

So, You Have Been Born Again … Now What?

By David Crissman 

 

How to Be Saved

"But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.  And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself.

The Doctrine of Substitutionary Atonement

Broadly, this doctrine states that Jesus Christ died in our place when he died on the cross.

The Bible says: 
 
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God
1 Peter 3:18

 

Conditions of Salvation According to Jesus Christ in Matthew 18

I remember the shock of reading the whole of Matthew's gospel through in one sitting, back in 1985. It was one night in a place called New College, an Anglican college attached to the University of New South Wales, where I was in my final year of a Computer Science degree. I was just starting out in Christian discipleship, though I had been attending church weekly all my life. I remember a sense of the fear of God coming on me. When we let the Word of God as a whole speak to us it can be transforming.

The Parable of the Sower and “Once Saved Always Saved”

I refer you to the Parable of the Sower found in Matthew 13:1-23. Jesus talks about seed (which is the Word of God – not that you would think so listening to TV evangelists – but I digress). This seed falls on four different types of ground – the wayside, the stony ground, the thorny ground and the good ground.

Its pretty clear that in the case of the wayside hearers, these people were never saved. The word never entered their heart, primarily because they did not understand it, Jesus says. The devil took it away.

Jesus offers Rest and Teaching

In Matthew 11 Jesus says, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

How did Jesus Christ teach the Salvation Message?

Jesus Christ began to teach and preach the message of salvation in much the same way as John the Baptist before him. It says in Matthew 4:17

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
