228 – Salvation for All
God bless you all in the mighty and Powerful name of Our Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May God bless you all abundantly. The following are my notes for the latest podcast show entitled ‘Salvation for All.’ I have all the scriptures written out so it will be easy for you to follow along.
1Timothy 2:4 “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
This is what I think about most of the time and this is what I want to do. I start every day with prayer, reading God’s Word, studying the Bible, and thinking about put teachings together. I teach and run Fellowships on Sunday mornings and Tuesday nights. Plus some special Biblical Study Teaching. I have a podcast show, email newsletters and I post on Facebook. All to help people get born again and come to an accurate knowledge of God’s Word.
Acts 2:37 – 39 “Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.”
Acts 2:46 & 47 “And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.”
The word favour sometimes is translated as grace in God’s Word. The Greek word for favor and grace is the same Greek word. It says here that we share favor with everybody. We share what God makes available for us with everybody and the Lord adds to the church daily such as should be saved. Now we know our job and we know the Lord does his’ Job.
1 Corinthians 3:4 – 9 “For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.”
2 Corinthians 5:14 – 6:2 “For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 6:1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”
We got the word of reconciliation, we have the ministry of reconciliation. We are workers together with God. We’re even called the ambassadors for Christ. And salvation is available to everybody and today is the time to do it.
Ephesians 2:8 – 10 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
Until the next time we get together, may God bless you abundantly.
