Genuine Salvation?

A genuinely saved man will not just "quit" wrong to be saved, he we quit wrong because he's saved. He's a new creation made by Christ. He's saved by Grace. He's justified by Grace. He experiences righteousness by faith. Every sin is forgiven and the heart is clean and holy in the eyes of God. There's no more "rejection" of Christ, but acceptance and trust with an everyday consciousness to Christ's Divine presence and authority. There's a transformation made where the clean heart provides a means for the believer to live without sin. I know this state of being is not experienced by everyone, but the fact of the matter is, "Everybody is not genuinely saved".

Genuine Salvation prepares the heart of man for a future Judgment. Every genuinely saved man knows there will be a Judgment day. Every genuinely saved man knows he's saved from wrath of God in Eternal Judgment and every sin is forgiven. A saved man knows holiness of heart and conduct is essential in the life of a believer in Christ. Belief is consent of the human will to God. Belief understands the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross. Belief is enlightenment to the person of a living Christ. Belief brings God's Salvation into the human soul and it becomes a way of life. This is how God prepares a man's heart and soul for the coming of Christ in Judgment. The heart is clean and ready to caught up to meet with Christ in the air. Genuine Salvation causes man to "look" for the return of Christ to call out the Church from Great Tribulation.

It's obvious that genuine Salvation is missed by so many people in this modern religious era. This is so sad and hard for some to acknowledge as the time of Christ's return draws closer and closer. More and more people are turning away from the truth in this fast paced society we live in. The Bible speaks of this unholy crowd. It calls this unholy crowd, "those who perish". Those who perish are deceived by sin as they are overtaken and smothered in unrighteous and unclean living in the eyes of God. Those who perish miss Christ. They reject His love of the truth. They miss the experience of genuine Salvation in a lost world waiting for Christ's glorious return. Because of this unholy and unrighteous state of man...God is going to send upon this crowd that finds pleasure in sin...a strong delusion. This crowd will become so deceived that they become delirious believing in something false. Some even find so much pleasure in their deception they can never come back to God. Their souls are damned for Eternity.

2 Thess 2:10-12...And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Look around today at the people who reject the truth about holiness and right living that only comes from Christ. They reject God's Truth about a Saviour recorded in His Holy Scripture. They reject the fact that Jesus can cleanse the heart from "all" sin. How are these people who are so overtaken with the "deceivableness of unrighteous living" going to be prepared for Christ's coming and His Divine Judgment? What are these people hanging onto? What are these people trusting in? Are these people who are going to perish simply believing in a lie? Yes. This lie becomes so overwhelming that it takes over their hearts and lives. The root of the lie is believing that Christians can continue in sin and live a life in unrighteousness...no matter what the Bible says. It's happening now! People are so wrapped up in everything but truth, they are consumed and overtaken by the "deceivableness of unrighteousness".

This Salvation I write about is genuine Salvation. Have you got it? If you have, Glory! If you don't have it get it now before its to late. Don't let religion or tradition or human opinion cause you to miss the truth about Christ and Christian living. Get your heart right today through genuine Salvation that comes from Christ our Saviour and Redeemer. Glory! Don't wait! Today is the day of Salvation!
