D. Since God the
Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, are one God in three persons,
then all of the above scriptures can be used as proof texts that Salvation is by the power
SALVATION- BY WHO'S POWER IS IT SUSTAINED?
Continue on- no test yet.
A. The Creator and
sustainer of the Creation, both physical and spiritual, is also the omnipotent
controller of it.
Jn 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word ___ ___."
Jn 1:3 "All things were _____ __ ___; and without him
was ___ ___ _____ made that was made."
Col 1:16 "For by him were ____ _______ ________, that are in heaven, and
that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:"
Col 1:17 "And he is before all things, and __ ___ all things _______."
"consist," Gk sunesthken,
seu-nes-tay'-ken, def. to have been permanently framed
God has permanently framed the entire Creation and it is only by His power that they
retain their permanence.
B. No power in heaven
or in earth can resist, control, or abrogate the eternal will and
power of the eternal God.
Ro 1:20 "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world
are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even
his _______ _______ and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:"
Ro 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things?
If God be for us, ___ ___ __ ______ __?"
Job 42:2 "I know that thou canst __ _____ _____, and
that no thought can be withholden from thee."
Gen 18:14 "Is ___ _____ too hard for the LORD? ..."
Dan 4:35 "And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth
according to ___ ____ in the army of ________, and among the inhabitants of
the _____: and _____ can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?"
Since God's Salvation is given by the infinite power of God the Father, God the Son and God
the Holy Spirit, then it is not logical to think that there is or ever could be anything within the
power of any thing or being inhabiting the finite Creation of God that could control, abrogate, or
in any way change the progress or effectiveness of that eternal, infinite, omnipotent power once
it has been physically or spiritually put into motion to accomplish some physical or spiritual purpose
Since God in His infinite wisdom, and initiated and sustained by His infinite power, has set into
motion this thing called Salvation, and has purposed and plainly stated that it is eternal/everlasting
in its duration once received, then obviously no finite thing or being can ever stand against His will
in this matter.
Salvation comes from God alone
can only be attained by God's plan!
Psa 3:8 "Salvation belongeth unto the LORD:
thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah."
Now we can add
to this the fact that once
we are saved, then we are kept by God's
power. And since God's power is eternal
and His veracity unchallengeable, then
when He tells us that the life He gives us
in Christ will have no end, that it is eternal
and everlasting, and that it can not be
abrogated by any person or thing, not even
ourselves, then we must conclude that our
Salvation will last forever!
Jn 10:28 "And I give unto them eternal life;
and they shall never perish, neither shall
any man pluck them out of my hand."
Now we also
know that it is sustained by the eternal
God in the force of His eternal power and is unassailable
by any finite power exercised by man or devil.
Dan 4:35 "And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed
as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army
of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and
none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?"
