The Gospel – What Really Happened at Calvary !

“For I am not ashamed of the Glad Tidings (gospel) of Christ, for it is the power of God unto Salvation (freedom, deliverance, rescue, healing and restoration) to every one that believeth . . .
     As it is written . . . The Just shall live by faith !”     Romans 1:16-17

So what really happened at Calvary ?

Forgiven –     “And you being dead in your sins, and the uncircumcision of your flesh . . . hath He quickened* together with Him (Christ Jesus), having forgiven you all trespasses !”     Colossians 2:13

Rescued –     “For He saith . . . I have heard thee _________ (your name) in a time accepted* (Isaiah 49:8-16), and in the day of Salvation have I succoured (rescued) thee . . . Behold, now is the accepted time* (Luke 4:18-19), behold, Today is the day of your Salvation . . . !”     II Corinthians 6:2

Redeemed –     “For as much as ye know . . . that ye were not redeemed* (loosen, atonement, ransomed in full) with corruptible things, such as silver and gold . . . but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot . . . !”
I Peter 1:18-19
ref: Deuteronomy 27:1 thru 30:20 and Galatians 3:10-13

Delivered –     “Giving thanks unto The Father (Matthew 23:9), which hath made us meet (worthy) to be partakers of the Inheritance of the saints in Light . . . Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son . . . In Whom we have Redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of our sins !”     Colossians 1:12-14

Healed –    “Who His Own self bare our sins (Isaiah 53:4-6) in His Own body upon that tree . . . So that we, being now dead to sins, should live unto righteousness (Romans 8:2-4 & II Corinthians 4:10-11) . . . and by Whose stripes we are healed !”
I Peter 2:24,
ref: Isaiah 53:4-6 & Matthew 8:17 Continue reading

The Gift of the Spirit & Life ?

Wells of Salvation     “Therefore with Joy shall ye draw Water out of the Wells of Salvation . . . and in that day ye shall say, Praise the LORD (Halleluyah !),  call upon His name, declare His doings (wondrous works) among the people . . . . For great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst (heart) of thee . . . !”     Isaiah 12:1-6

“Before He left His disciples, Christ “breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” John 20:22. Again He said, “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you.” Luke 24:49. But not until after the ascension was the Gift received in its fullness.

     Not until through faith and prayer the disciples had surrendered themselves fully for His working was the outpouring of the Spirit received. Then in a special sense the goods (riches) of heaven were committed to the followers of Christ. “When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.” Ephesians 4:8. “Unto every one of us is given Grace* (G5485), according to the measure of the gift of Christ (The Anointed One, the Anointing),” the Spirit “dividing to every man severally as He will.”                                ref: Ephesians 4:7; 1 Corinthians 12:11.

The gifts are already ours in Christ, but their actual possession depends upon our reception of the Spirit of God.”
