What is Salvation?
Salvation is a gift from God to set humanity free. God Himself chose to become the eternal sacrifice. God the Father sent God the Son. His name is Jesus, who became flesh and blood, walked the earth as a man, revealed the love of the Father, and on the cross took upon His body all evil and all offences of humanity. Jesus paid the cost of all offences done against God and against each other.
Yet the purpose of Jesus’ sacrifice was not only to release humanity from the slavery and consequences of these offences, but also to totally defeat evil and death for all eternity!
All who receive and believe Jesus’ eternal flesh and blood sacrifice of Himself receive His free gift of salvation. Saved from punishment, judgement, payment and guilt of all offences done against God and against each other. In receiving Jesus are made alive, having been born of Spirit. In Christ Jesus they are empowered to rule and reign in this life over their selfish desires and all powers that stand against Jesus’ right to rule and reign.
Also all who receive and believe in Jesus also have a time future inheritance. An eternal state of perfect resurrected bodies that never age, never wear out and never die. Together with God they will live in a renewed world of love, peace and no evil.
When Jesus returns to the earth all who have received Jesus’ free gift of Himself, His flesh and blood sacrifice throughout human history, will inherit their perfect resurrected bodies.
Therefore God Himself in Christ Jesus became one of us, so that we can become one in Him.
