Salvation

From PreparingYou
Jump to: navigation, search

According to the Strong's Concordance the Greek word sótéria (σωτηρία) has a short definition of "deliverance, salvation". But the longer definition defines it as "welfare, prosperity, deliverance, preservation, salvation, safety." [1] The word is often translated as "protection" in reference to physical and spiritual health in other Greek works like Timaeus.

According to Thayer's soteria σωτηρία, as a noun is first defined as "deliverance, preservation, safety," and then as "salvation". He further defines it as "deliverance from the molestation of enemies", Acts 7:25; and in the context of Luke 1:71 as "preservation (of physical life)" and as "safety, in an ethical sense, that which conduces to the soul's safety..." and translated "health" in Acts 27:34 [1] And in Hebrews 11:7 the author describes the saving of Noah and of his family by the word of God as given to Noah in preparation for the disaster coming upon the world.

Paul talks about many being blinded in Romans 11:7 [2] so that they cannot see. Then goes on to talk about what had been written in the Old Testament about this blindness[3]

Then he specifically quotes David in Romans 11:9 [4] speaking of tables being a snare and a trap. The quote is from Psalms 69:22 [5] where David talks about what should have been for our welfare being a trap.

Today in the world what we call welfare is generally provided by Benefactors who exercise authority one over the other. Those Benefactors of the people get power or authority over the people because they provide the "deliverance, preservation, safety," including "deliverance from the molestation of enemies".


Part 10: Slaves and Salvation ~6 min

Over and over in the Bible we are warned about eating at the tables of rulers.[6] Not to have the One purse system of Socialism because by its very nature it makes us Merchandise of us.

Today it is the socialist governments of the world which provide for people saying they believe in Christ with health and welfare. But those people are not doing the will of God but just saying Lord,Lord[7] in their Modern Churches.

We are told to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. [8]

The kingdom was and is at hand but it manifests itself from within the individual[9] through charity and love.

True followers of Christ who love Him by their nature would not desire to take from their neighbor but would rather give than receive.[10]

The kingdom of God is a living network of people who care about the righteousness of God and their neighbor as much as they care about themselves.

Through that network of charity operating according to the Perfect law of liberty Christians provided all the Social welfare of their society by free will offerings rather than by forcing their neighbors to contribute to their welfare or salvation.

Most Modern Christians are blind to this simple truth and fail to attend to the Weightier matters of Christ nor the Corban of Christ. This is why we should not and cannot forsake the gathering together and expect to be free souls under God.[11]

The Corban of the world system snares us into a position where the State becomes our Fathers. They identify us with a number that marks our own lack of faith in the way of Christ and seals us in debt.

The day is approaching and is not far off where the Corban of the world and the Benefactors who exercise authority one over the other will fail. Those who Repent and seek the salvation of Christ through His ways of charity and faith shall have hope.

Some will say all you have to do is believe but what is belief?

We know that faith without works is dead [12] and that the kingdom is for the living and not for the dead.[13]
