WHEN YOU ARE BORN AGAIN YOU COME UNDER A NEW MANAGEMENT AND GET A NEW ACCOMMODATION – THE KINGDOM OF THE DEAR SON OF GOD
SALVATION CONFERS ON YOU A BRAND NEW BEGINNING; IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW TERRIBLE YOUR PAST HAS BEEN, THAT IS GONE
SALVATION GIVES YOU SEVERAL OTHER WONDERFUL THINGS LIKE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE MIGHTY ARMS OF GOD
SANCTIFICATION MEANS THAT THE ABILITY TO SIN HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM YOU
– Pastor E.A. Adeboye on BEYOND SALVATION at RCCG September 10th 2023 Special Sunday Service Part A
Tonight I will be speaking to you very briefly on BEYOND SALVATION.
My text will be Hebrews 10:19-23. When we want to talk about Beyond Salvation, we could visit it from two different angles. We could say well salvation is step 1, then after that comes sanctification. Salvation means your sins have been washed away. Your files have been cleared of all queries.
Everything is clean. Sanctification means that the ability to sin has been removed from you. Your heart of stone will be replaced with the heart of flesh so that you now have the ability to live in such a manner that there will never be another query in your file. Then we can move on and say after sanctification comes baptism in the Holy Ghost and then go on to dedication and on and on and on.
I would rather look at the topic from another perspective. That when you are born again, you expect certain things. Number One of course is that you miss hell and you gain heaven. John 3:16. Then, Salvation confers on you several other wonderful things. 2 Corinthians 5:17.
Salvation confers on you a brand new beginning. When you are saved, it doesn’t matter how terrible your past has been, that is gone. When you have a new beginning old things are passed away and all things become new. You can get a new name written down in glory. John 1:11-12. When you are saved, you get a new name. You used to be called a son of the devil, but now you are a child of God – A new name.
When you are born again you get a new accommodation, Colossians 1:12-14. Salvation gives you the privilege of being translated out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of the dear Son of God.
You move from out of darkness into light.
Salvation brings you under a new management. You were under the management of Satan but now you are under the management of Jesus Christ. Matthew 11:28-30. You come under a new management.
There are other benefits far beyond ordinary expectations. Because you are saved by the Blood of Jesus according to 1 John 1:7, the blood of Jesus cleanses from all sins.
Because all of your sins have been cleansed during salvation, you immediately have access to the mighty arms of God. Isaiah 59:1.
