VII. Salvation

The conclusion of the whole matter.


Salvation comes from God alone!
Psalm 3:8
"Salvation belongeth unto the LORD ..."



We will now sum up what we have learned
about Salvation and assurance of it.



Step one- Do you believe God's Word that says you are a sinner?
Ro 3:9 "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved
        both ____ and _______, that they are ___ under sin;"
    Ro 3:10 "As it is written, There is _____ righteous, no, not ___:"
    Ro 3:23 "For all have _______, and come short of the glory of God;"
         It is obvious from these scriptures, and many others that agree with them, that everyone
       on earth, both Jew and Gentile (non-Jew), are sinners. 

B.  Step two- Do you believe God's Word that tells of condemnation for sin?
    Ro 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is
     eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Heb 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the _________:"
Rev 20:11 "And I saw a _____  _____  _____, and him that sat on it, from whose
        face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them."

    Rev 20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were
        opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were
        _______ out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."
    Rev 20:13 "And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and _____ and ____ delivered
        up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."
    Rev 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the ____  __  ____.
        This is the _______  _____."
    Rev 20:15 "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
        was cast into the _____  __  ____."
The Bible is plain concerning condemnation.  All who die without Christ as Saviour will go to Hell
        and, at the final judgment, they will be cast body and soul into the Lake of Fire forever.

C.  Step three- Do you believe God's Word that says He loves you and doesn't want you to be condemned?
    II Pet 3:9 "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count
        slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, ___ willing that any should perish,
        but that ___ should come to repentance."
    John 3:17 "For God sent ___ his Son into the world to condemn the world;
        but that the world through him might be ______."
    John 3:18 "He that believeth on him is ___ condemned: but he that
        believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed
        in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

    Ro 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in
        that, while we were yet ______, Christ ____ for us."
            Remember this- God loves us just the way we are, lost, but too much to leave us that way! 
    John 3:16 "For God so ______  ___  _____, that he gave his only begotten Son,
        that whosoever _________ in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

D.  Step four- Will you obey God's Word that says you must ask for His Salvation and believe that
        you can have it through Christ alone?
    Ro 10:8 "But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth,
        and in thy heart: that is, the word of _____, which we preach;"
    Ro 10:9 "That if thou shalt ______ with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
        and shalt _______ in thine heart that God hath raised him from
        the dead, thou shalt be ______."
    Ro 10:10 "For with the heart man _________ unto righteousness;
        and with the mouth __________ is made unto salvation."
    Ro 10:13 "For whosoever shall ____  ____ the name of the Lord shall be ______."

And do you believe it is by grace alone without your works?
    Eph 2:8 "For by _____ are ye saved through faith; and
        that ___ of yourselves: it is the gift of God:"
Eph 2:9 "___  __  ____, lest any man should boast."
Rom 11:6 "And if by grace, then is it __  ____ of works:
        otherwise grace is no more grace. But if
it be of works,
        then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work."

E.  Summary.
        If you have done these things that God in His Bible has told you to do, then you do have God's salvation.  You have believed God's gospel and not some other gospel that will send you to Hell instead of take you to Heaven!

        God warned us about the false gospels.
    Gal 1:6 "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that
        called you into the grace of Christ unto _______ gospel:"
    Gal 1:7 "Which is ___ another; but there be some that trouble you,
        and would _______ the gospel of Christ."
    Gal 1:8 "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other
        gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you,
        let him be ________."
    Gal 1:9 "As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel
        unto you than that ye have received, let him be _________."
    Eph 2:8 "For by _____ are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:"
    Eph 2:9
"Not of works, lest any man should boast."

    So if you have believed God's gospel and accepted Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, as your personal Saviour, then you do have God's Salvation!


Continue on- no test yet.

A.  Step one- Do you believe God's Word that says you have eternal/everlasting life through Christ?

B.   Step two- Have you repented of your sin; i.e., turned your back upon it in sorrow for what you have done?

C.  Step three- Have you cast all hope of reaching Heaven upon God's grace and mercy- and included NONE of your works in your hope of receiving Salvation?

D.  Step four- Have you confessed Jesus Christ as Saviour by praying to God and accepting Christ?

E.  Step five- Good works.  After your profession of Christ, do you have a desire toward doing good works and have you observed godly fruit in your life and a decrease in the amount of attraction to sinful pursuits; i.e., have you maintained good works after Salvation and by doing so have shown to yourself and others that you truly do have a living faith instead of a dead faith?

F.  Step six- Do you now exhibit a godly love for your brothers and sisters in Christ?

G.  If you answered "Yes" to all six of these questions, then they will give you God's promised assurance from His Word that you truly have God's Salvation and an escape from Hell and a guarantee of a Heavenly home and eternal/everlasting life that can never be taken away or lost by anything that you or anyone or anything in God's spiritual or physical creation can do, and a promise of an inheritance with Christ.

    God has promised in His Word and
all we can do is accept it:
I Jn 5:10
"He that believeth on the Son of God hath the
witness in himself: he that believeth not God
hath made him a liar; because he believeth
not the record that God gave of his Son."

I Jn 5:11
"And this is the record, that God hath given
to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son."

I Jn 5:12
"He that hath the Son hath life; and he that
hath not the Son of God hath not life."

I Jn 5:13
"These things have I written unto you that
believe on the name of the Son of God; that
ye may _____ that ye have eternal life, and
that ye may believe on the name of
the Son of God."


Salvation comes from God alone and 
can only be attained by God's plan!

Psalm 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!

John 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?"


And we can have assurance that it is truly ours;
first off because God says so, but also because
our good works that follow it, including our love
for the brethren, help reassure us that it truly is so.

II Tim 3:15
"...thou has known the holy scriptures, which
are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus."



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 7th and last
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.

You may submit a Finish Sign In form and a Password Request Form
after you have successfully completed this 7th test.  Then, when
you receive the Password, you may take the Final Test on
or after the next day after you successfully completed
this current 7th lesson 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.
