V. Salvation
By who's power is it given and sustained?


Salvation comes from God alone!

Psalm 3:8
"Salvation belongeth unto the LORD ..."



A.  God's Salvation is given by the power of Jesus Christ- God the Son.
Jn 5:24 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth
        on him that sent me, hath __________  ____, and shall not come into
        ___________; but is passed from death unto life."

    Jn 10:27 "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:"
    Jn 10:28 "And I give unto them _________  _____; and they shall never perish,
        neither shall any man ______ them out of my hand."

    Heb 1:1 "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past
        unto the fathers by the prophets,"
Heb 1:2 "Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath
        appointed heir of ___  ______, by whom also he made the worlds;"
Heb 1:3 "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person,
        and __________  ___  ______ by the word of ____  _______, when he had ___
        _______  purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;"

B.  God's Salvation is given by the power of God the Father.
    Exo 15:13 "Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast _________:
        thou hast guided them in ___  _______ unto thy holy habitation."
Psa 27:1 "The LORD is my light and my ________; whom shall I fear?

        is able to _____ them out of my Father's ______."
    Rom 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is
        the _______ of God unto___________ to every one that believeth;
        to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
    I Cor 2:4 "And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's
        wisdom, but in demonstration of the ______ and of _______:"
I Cor 2:5 "That your faith should not stand in the
        wisdom of men, but in the ______  __  ___."
    I Cor 1:18 "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish
        foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the _______ of God."

        and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,"
    II Thess 1:11 "Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our ___ would count
        you worthy of this calling, and ______ all the good pleasure of his goodness, 
        and the work of faith ____  ______:"
    I Pet 1:5 "Who are kept by the ______  __  ___ through
        faith unto _________ ready to be revealed in the last time."
    II Pet 1:3 "According as his ______  ______ hath given unto us all things
        that pertain unto ____ and godliness, through the knowledge of him that
        hath called us to glory and virtue:"

    I Thess 1:5 "For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also
        in _______, and in the ______  ______, and in much assurance ..."

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
        of God.

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 sunesthkenseu-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,
        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?"

C. Summary.
        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
    of God!
        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 and 
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?"



Tests need to be taken a minimum of 7 days apart.  Study one section for 7 days
and then take the test not before the 7th day and then your attendance for
the next section begins the day after you have received a passing
score on the Section test.  Attendance is figured from the
date you submitted the Sign In form for the course.

To figure out the minimum date on which you can take this current
lesson test, just add seven to the date of your last test.  This process
will always give you the date on which you may take any test.

Attendance for each lesson is 1 week minimum.
Attendance for the entire Salvation course is 7 weeks minimum.
You may take your last lesson test on the last day of your 7
weeks of required attendance.  Then you can submit a
Finish Sign In form and a Password Request Form
and then you may take the course Final Test the
day after you have successfully completed your
7th and final test in the course.

If you proceed faster than the required pace, then you will not retain the information in the text.

If you are registered with the SLBC Moodle site,
DO NOT take the test through the link below
nor through any of the test links in any of
the textbooks.  Return to the Moodle
site to take your tests in ALL of
your courses.  There can be
to this.

If you are NOT a moodle student,
please take the following test.



If you fail the test, then restudy the section, find
the correct answers to all of the questions
you missed, and then take the test
again on or after tomorrow.
You may
NOT retake a failed test on the
same day that you failed it in any
of our courses. There is always
a one day wait required for
restudy of the material
before retaking
the test.
