Summary

  • According to the Bible, salvation is necessary for entering the Kingdom of God (John 3:3-5)

  • There are several pictures of salvation in the Bible, including:

    • Justification: Believers in Christ are declared righteous by God (Rom 3:26, 8:33, Titus 3:7)
    • Redemption: Believers are freed from the bondage of sin (1 Peter 1:18-19)
    • Regeneration: God gives life to the spiritually dead (1 Peter 1:23)
    • Adoption: God places believers in His family as full sons (Rom 8:15)
    • Reconciliation: God turns enemies into friends (Rom 5:10, 11)
    • Sacrifice: Christ's death in place of sinners (Heb 9:26-28)
    • Propitiation: God's wrath against sin is turned away (Rom 3:25)
  • Salvation includes assurance and sanctification

    • Assurance: Believers have the certainty of forgiven sins, justification, and eternal life (John 5:24, Rom 8:1)
    • Sanctification: Believers experience the power of God to save them from sin (Phil 2:12)
  • Regeneration is an experience for all men (2 Cor. 1:10)

  • The Bible records that man's problem is sin (Rom 3:23)

  • The Bible defines sin as missing the mark, deliberately doing wrong, a state of being trapped, or anything not in harmony with God's standards (Judges 20:16, Col 2:13, Ps 1:6, etc.)

  • The origin of sin is traced to Satan's pride and subsequent expulsion from heaven (Isaiah 14:12-17, Ezekiel 28:11-18, Rev 12:7-12, 2 Peter 2:1-6)

  • The sinful nature, like many illnesses, is congenital and transmitted through generations (Ex 20:5, 20:6)

  • The consequences of sin include grieving God's heart (Gen 6:5-7)

  • The rapture, the event when Jesus Christ returns for His followers, will take place when He comes (15:37-53).

  • Christ's coming will be marked by a shout, the voice of the archangel, and a trumpet (1 Thessalonians 4:16).

  • The dead in Christ will be the first to rise with new, incorruptible bodies (1 Corinthians 15:23, 1 Thessalonians 4:16).

  • Believers who are alive at the time will have their bodies changed to incorruptible (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

  • The rapture will be sudden and swift, happening "in the twinkling of an eye" (1 Corinthians 15:52).

  • The rapture will occur "in the air" (1 Thessalonians 4:17).

  • The rapture is the hope of all believers, and they are called to be ready for Christ's coming (Matthew 24:42-44).

  • The rapture is a subject of debate among Christians, with some believing it will occur before (pre-tribulationists), during (mid-tribulationists), or after (post-tribulationists) the tribulation.

  • The resurrection of the dead is the second lesson for future events in the Christian life.

  • The fact of the dead rising to life is clear in the Bible (1 Corinthians 15:12; Luke 20:27; Acts 23:6-8).

  • Resurrection is seen in the Old Testament (1 Kings 17:17-24; 2 Kings 4:32-35; 2 Kings 13:21; Matthew 27:52, 53).

  • Resurrection is seen in the New Testament through Jesus (Mark 5:35-43; Luke 7:11-17; John 11:1-45), Peter (Acts 9:36-42), and Paul (Acts 20:9-12).

  • The resurrection of Jesus is the greatest example of those who have been and will be raised from the dead (Matthew 28:11-15; Acts 1:3).

  • The significance and truth of Christ's resurrection is infinite, and it gives meaning to the Christian life here on earth (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

  • The resurrection establishes Christ's authority as the first-fruit of those who have fallen asleep and declares Him as the Son of God (Romans 1:4).

  • The resurrection justifies believers and defeats death (Romans 4:25; 6:8-9).

  • The resurrection provides a Priest on the throne of God (Colossians 1:18; Romans 8:29).

  • The future judgement is assured (Acts 17:3).

  • The resurrection is spoken of in various scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:20, 23; Colossians 1:18; Romans 8:29).

  • The resurrection is a cause for great joy and hope for believers (1 Corinthians 15:55-57; Romans 8:24).

  • Some people will be left behind after the rapture (Matthew 24:40, 41; 25:1-13).

  • People left behind still have a chance of salvation, but they will have to renounce the worship of the anti-Christ, suffer the consequence of death by beheading, and be rewarded for their stand (Revelation 20:4).

  • The believers are called to prepare for Christ's coming, love His appearing, long for His coming, wait for His coming, and pray for His coming (2 Timothy 4:8; James 5:7; 1 Corinthians 1:7; Titus 2:13; Matthew 6:10; Revelation 22:20).
