More on salvation

Different salvation verses

We are saved by putting our trust in the Blood of Christ. You might be convicted of that you are a sinner reading John 8:44-45 or some other verse. Some salvation verses are Romans 10:9-14, Romans 3:21-26, Acts 16:31-21, John 11:25-26 and 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ alone. Paul is a minister of Jesus Christ, ministering the gospel of God to the gentiles.

Romans 15:16 KJV
That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Also:

Proverbs 30:5 KJV  
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

So the entire king james bible is filled with pure words that can lead you to salvation. The words of the king james bible are seeds. The primary seed being the gospel.

The other English bible versions, the modern versions of the bible, do not contain the word of God. They are rubbish. But just like you can find a dollar bill in the sewers (modern version) and not just in the bank (king james bible) it is be possible to get saved when reading the modern versions (Paraphrasing something I heard Peter S Ruckman say).

Some people just get eternally saved by faith in Christ alone, by grace, without a bible. Though i believe that the king james bible is important in making a person grow as a believer.

A born again believer believes that the entire scripture is true.

Is faith in Jesus Christ enough for eternal salvation?

Individual salvation

Eternal salvation is easy but surviving in this world (physical salvation or deliverance) can be very hard for both the saved and the lost people. I believe that the scriptures can be used for salvation in this world as well and not only for eternal salvation.

Philippians 2:1-16 KJV 
 [1] If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
 [2] Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
 [3] Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
 [4] Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
 [5] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
 [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
 [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
 [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
 [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
 [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
 [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
 [12] Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
 [13] For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
 [14] Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
 [15] That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
 [16] Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Why do you think it says [12] "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling"?.

Do you think it is because eternal salvation is by works?

Well physical salvation can involve works or just learning to avoid certain people.

But eternal salvation is not of works. So why does it say work out your own salvation with fear and trembling?

It is because they are talking about physical salvation, salvation from the dangers of this world.

This is why I created these IPDs and Pearls and this site because I noticed that physical salvation is individual and we are all different human beings and its between you and God and the scripture is the way. Jesus is the way. And church doctrine will not lead you right in terms of avoiding the dangers of this life.

II Corinthians 6:12 KJV
Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.

Why do you think it says "ye are straitened in your own bowels"?

Wouldn't the gospel preaching of Paul just straighten out everyone instantaneously?

No we can be chastised in this world by God.

Hebrews 12:7 KJV 
[7] If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

So we are straightened in our own bowels through the chastisement. And then Christ is formed in us.

Galatians 4:19 KJV 
[19] My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

False prophet

Ezekiel 14:9-10  KJV
 [9] And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
 [10] And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;

If you feel someone is wrong on salvation, including me, don't blame that person for that you sought unto him because the punishment of the false prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him [10].

Final recommendation

Stay away from organized religion and stick to your bible.

The scripture is sufficient to salvation as it says in the chapter summary of John 20.

Final final recommendation to you regarding salvation is read the king james bible.
