Post details: Salvation is here.


Permalink 09:27:54 am, Categories: GraceHead teaching, By Trent, 216 words   English (US)

Salvation is here.

Is salvation merely snowcones in the sky, in the sweet by-and-by, once you finally die?

Picture this ... You are an surrounded by enemies that are mounting an attack upon you and your nation (Israel.) In your distress you call out to the God of your Salvation. ---OK, what do you mean by salvation?

Do you mean that you call out to Him because isn't it going to be swell when you die and you get to goto heaven?


Do you mean that you are calling out to the God of your salvation because "salvation" means delivery from your current strife?

Of course.

So, why do people talk about salvation as if the trouble is going to crush then but they get to goto heaven? I want salvation on this side.

I have alot of enemies: my confused mind, my rebellious flesh, my drifting emotions, my faltering will, those around me that are not controlled by the Spirit, demons, satan, iniquity, oppressive government, injustice, a dark past, a dim future, etc.

Salvation, to me, has come to be about deliverence from these foes and the trouble that they bring upon me now.

I hope you find this to be the most relevent definition of salvation in your walk with God, as well.

(Inspired by Christ Notes.)
