Saved/Salvation

 

The Hebrew and Greek words in the bible for "salvation" and "saved" imply the ideas of deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, and soundness. "Salvation" is the great inclusive word of the Gospel, gathering into itself all the redemptive acts and processes; as justification, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, and glorification.

 

Salvation is in three tenses: (1) The Christian has been saved from the guilt and penalty of sin (Luke 7:50, 1 Corinthians 1:18, 2 Corinthians 2:15, Ephesians 2:5) and is safe. (2) The Christian is being saved from the habit and domination of sin (Romans 6:14, 8:2, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Galatians 2:19) And (3) the Christian will be saved at the Lord's return from all wrath and judgement (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18, 5:9-10, 5:23)

 

This is the Good News of the Gospel.
