Title: SALVATION:


1
  • SALVATION
  • BY GRACE, THROUGH FAITH

2
  • Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply
    on the face of the earth, and daughters were born
    to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters
    of men, that they were beautiful and they took
    wives for themselves of all whom they chose. And
    the LORD said, My Spirit shall not strive with
    man forever, for he is indeed flesh yet his days
    shall be one hundred and twenty years.

3
  • There were giants on the earth in those days, and
    also afterward, when the sons of God came in to
    the daughters of men and they bore children to
    them. Those were the mighty men who were of old,
    men of renown. Then the LORD saw that the
    wicked-ness of man was great in the earth, and
    that every intent of the thoughts of his heart
    was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry
    that He had made man on the earth, and He was
    grieved in His heart.

4
  • So the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have
    created from the face of the earth, both man and
    beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I
    am sorry that I have made them. But Noah found
    grace in the eyes of the Lord. This is the
    genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect
    in his generations. Noah walked with God. And
    Noah begot three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
    The earth also was corrupt before God, and the
    earth was filled with violence.

5
  • So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was
    corrupt for all flesh had corrupted their way on
    the earth. And God said to Noah, The end of all
    flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled
    with violence through them and behold, I will
    destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark
    of gopherwood make rooms in the ark, and cover
    it inside and outside with pitch. And this is how
    you shall make it The length of the ark shall be
    three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and
    its height thirty cubits.

6
  • You shall make a window for the ark, and you
    shall finish it to a cubit from above and set
    the door of the ark in its side. You shall make
    it with lower, second, and third decks. And
    behold, I Myself am bringing flood-waters on the
    earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in
    which is the breath of life everything that is
    on the earth shall die. But I will establish My
    covenant with you and you shall go into the
    ark--you, your sons, your wife, and your sons'
    wives with you.

7
  • And of every living thing of all flesh you shall
    bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep
    them alive with you they shall be male and
    female. Of the birds after their kind, of animals
    after their kind, and of every creeping thing of
    the earth after its kind, two of every kind will
    come to you to keep them alive. And you shall
    take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and
    you shall gather it to yourself and it shall be
    food for you and for them. Thus Noah did
    according to all that God commanded him, so he
    did. (Gen. 61-22)

8
  • Was Noah saved by works?
  • Yes and No
  • By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things
    not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an
    ark for the saving of his household, by which he
    condemned the world and became heir of the
    righteousness which is according to faith. (Heb.
    117)
  • He was not saved by meritorious works.
  • But he was saved by appropriative works.

9
NOAH WAS SAVED BY GRACE, THROUGH FAITH
  • Noah was saved by grace in that He was given
    conditions whereby he could be saved.
  • He was saved through faith in that He met the
    conditions he was given.
  • Similarly, people are saved by grace through
    faith under the New Testament.

10
  • And you He made alive, who were dead in
    trespasses and sins, in which you once walked
    according to the course of this world, according
    to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit
    who now works in the sons of disobedience, among
    whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the
    lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the
    flesh and of the mind, and were by nature
    children of wrath, just as the others.

11
  • But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His
    great love with which He loved us, even when we
    were dead in trespasses, made us alive together
    with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and
    raised us up together, and made us sit together
    in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in
    the ages to come He might show the exceeding
    riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in
    Christ Jesus.

12
  • For by grace you have been saved through faith,
    and that not of yourselves it is the gift of
    God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For
    we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus
    for good works, which God prepared beforehand
    that we should walk in them. (Eph. 21-10)

13
  • They Had Been Dead in Trespasses and Sins
  • But God, because of His great love
  • Made them alive together with Christ.
  • Raised them up together.
  • Made them sit together in heavenly places in
    Christ Jesus.

14
God, because of His great love
  • Made them alive together with Christ.

15
  • In Him was life, and the life was the light of
    men. (John 14)
  • And this is the testimony that God has given us
    eternal life, and this life is in His Son. (1
    John 511)
  • And you, being dead in your trespasses and the
    uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive
    together with Him, having forgiven you all
    trespasses. (Col. 213)

16
God, because of His great love
  • Made them alive together with Christ.
  • Raised them up together.

17
  • What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin
    that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall
    we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do
    you not know that as many of us as were baptized
    into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
    Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism
    into death, that just as Christ was raised from
    the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we
    also should walk in newness of life. (Rom. 61-4)

18
  • In Him you were also circumcised with the
    circumcision made without hands, by putting off
    the body of the sins of the flesh, by the
    circumcision of Christ, buried with Him in
    baptism, in which you also were raised with Him
    through faith in the working of God, who raised
    Him from the dead. (Col. 211-12)

19
God, because of His great love
  • Made them alive together with Christ.
  • Raised them up together.
  • Made them sit together in heavenly places in
    Christ Jesus.

20
  • Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
    Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual
    blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. (Eph.
    13)
  • And I say to you that many will come from east
    and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and
    Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. (Matt. 811)

21
The Ephesians Were Saved By Grace (Conditions
Extended)
  • Grace has been extended to all.

22
Grace Has Been Extended to All
  • For the grace of God that brings salvation has
    appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying
    ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live
    soberly, righteously, and godly in the present
    age. (Titus 211-12)

23
Grace Has Been Extended to All
  • But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower
    than the angels, for the suffering of death
    crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the
    grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
    (Heb. 29)

24
Grace Has Been Extended to All
  • For this is My blood of the new covenant, which
    is shed for many for the remission of sins.
    (Matt. 2628)

25
The Ephesians Were Saved By Grace (Conditions
Extended)
  • Grace has been extended to all.
  • Grace must be appropriated by faith.

26
Grace Must Be Appropriated by Faith
  • Therefore, having been justified by faith, we
    have peace with God through our Lord Jesus
    Christ, through whom also we have access by faith
    into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in
    hope of the glory of God. (Rom. 51-2)

27
Grace Must Be Appropriated by Faith
  • But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
    for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
    and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently
    seek Him. (Heb. 116)

28
Grace Must Be Appropriated by Faith
  • So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by
    the word of God. (Rom. 1017)

29
The Ephesians Were Saved By Grace (Conditions
Extended)
  • Grace has been extended to all.
  • Grace must be appropriated by faith.
  • Therefore, they were not saved by grace alone
    but by grace ... through faith.

30
The Ephesians Were Saved Through Faith
(Conditions Met)
  • Faith will not save without obedience. (Not in
    the sense of being perfectly sinless but in the
    sense of meeting conditions)

31
Faith Will Not Save Without Obedience
  • Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall
    enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the
    will of My Father in heaven. (Matt. 721)
  • But why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and do not
    do the things which I say? (Luke 646)

32
Faith Will Not Save Without Obedience
  • And having been perfected, He became the author
    of eternal salvation to all who obey Him. (Heb.
    59)
  • You see then that a man is justified by works,
    and not by faith only.... For as the body without
    the spirit is dead, so faith without works is
    dead also. (James 224, 26)

33
The Ephesians Were Saved Through Faith
(Conditions Met)
  • Faith will not save without obedience. (Not in
    the sense of being perfectly sinless but in the
    sense of meeting conditions)
  • These conditions must be met
  • Believe

34
Believe
  • So they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,
    and you will be saved, you and your household.
    (Acts 1631)

35
The Ephesians Were Saved Through Faith
(Conditions Met)
  • Faith will not save without obedience. (Not in
    the sense of being perfectly sinless but in the
    sense of meeting conditions)
  • These conditions must be met
  • Believe
  • Repent

36
Repent
  • Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked,
    but now commands all men everywhere to repent.
    (Acts 1730)

37
The Ephesians Were Saved Through Faith
(Conditions Met)
  • Faith will not save without obedience. (Not in
    the sense of being perfectly sinless but in the
    sense of meeting conditions)
  • These conditions must be met
  • Believe
  • Repent
  • Confess Christ

38
Confess Christ
  • That if you confess with your mouth the Lord
    Jesus and believe in your heart that God has
    raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For
    with the heart one believes unto righteousness,
    and with the mouth confession is made unto
    salvation. (Rom. 109-10)

39
The Ephesians Were Saved Through Faith
(Conditions Met)
  • Faith will not save without obedience. (Not in
    the sense of being perfectly sinless but in the
    sense of meeting conditions)
  • These conditions must be met
  • Believe
  • Repent
  • Confess Christ
  • Be baptized

40
Be Baptized
  • He who believes and is baptized will be saved
    but he who does not believe will be condemned.
    (Mark 1616)
  • Then Peter said to them, Repent, and let every
    one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus
    Christ for the remission of sins. (Acts 238)
  • And now why are you waiting? Arise and be
    baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the
    name of the Lord. (Acts 2216)

41
Be Baptized
  • For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just
    for the unjust, that He might bring us to God,
    being put to death in the flesh but made alive by
    the Spirit, by whom also He went and preached to
    the spirits in prison, who formerly were
    disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering
    waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was
    being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight
    souls, were saved through water.

42
Be Baptized
  • There is also an antitype which now saves
    us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the
    flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward
    God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
    (1 Peter 318-21)

43
Be Baptized
  • What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin
    that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall
    we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do
    you not know that as many of us as were baptized
    into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
    Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism
    into death, that just as Christ was raised from
    the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we
    also should walk in newness of life. (Rom. 61-4)

44
Be Baptized
  • But God, being rich in mercy, because of the
    great love with which he loved us, even when we
    were dead in trespasses, made us alive together
    with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and
    raised us up together, and made us sit together
    in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Eph.
    25-6)

45
Be Baptized
  • For you are all sons of God through faith in
    Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized
    into Christ have put on Christ. (Gal. 326-27)

46
Be Baptized
  • Baptism saves, in that it is the final condition
    that must be met by alien sinners.
  • Baptism puts us into Christ in that it brings us
    into a proper relationship with Him.
  • But if one does not believe, has not repented or
    has not confessed Christ, baptism will not do him
    any good whatsoever.
