The Life of Our Salvation
"Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation." Psalms 38:22
What is Salvation? Well, salvation I thought meant was deliverance from sin. I found out, that was not the correct definition according to the Bible. These past days I kept meditating on the word salvation, and I kept praying and asking God to please give me the wisdom and understanding of what salvation is. One morning last week, I woke up from a very demonic and foul dream I had that was about my past life in reality, of the sins I committed. This dream was very disturbing that I had to rebuke it. When I always have intense disturbing dreams, I tend to rebuke them because it always has consequences and strong meanings behind them. What I mean by consequences and strong meanings is that it can mean death or hell. After I had that dream, that was when God gave me an epiphany of what Salvation means. My definition and understanding of what salvation means to me are that salvation is a covering and it covers us. Salvation covers our past, present, and future. When we put our faith in God, and we repent the sins that we have committed. God forgives us for our sins. “Salvation.”
"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord, Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation." Isaiah 12:2
What this scripture means to me whatever struggles and hard times we go through in our lives. We should trust and put our faith in God, and do not be afraid. When God pulls us out of our toughest storms, he saves us and gives us strength. We have that faith that we will not return to where we were before. That is when we would call ourselves saved from our sins which we repent our sins to the Lord, and he forgives us. “Salvation.”
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9
This scripture was given to me, at first I wanted to use another scripture at the end of this paper because I did not understand what this word meant. Something was telling me to keep this scripture even though I did not know the meaning of it. I quoted this scripture to the Lord and asked him to give me a clear understanding and a message of what this scripture is saying to me. After that, I kept repeating this word out loud over and over and read it carefully. When I kept reading this scripture, I kept thinking of the word atonement when I got the understanding of it. What this scripture is saying to me is with our mouth, confession is made into our salvation. We should be atoned with our confessions to the Lord. Meaning, when we confess and call on the Lord, we should always mean what we say in confessing our sins. For example, if I do a lot of swearing when I am not in the church setting. That shows that I am not pleasing God. We should take action and that also means that I still need deliverance in that area. To be honest, I always swear when I'm frustrated or angry, or when someone makes me mad. But when I do swear, I always ask God for forgiveness, and he will forgive you. Sometimes when I get sad or angry I would slip up and swear. When that happens, I have to catch myself and ask God for forgiveness. What I mean is that action speaks louder than words. Put action into our scriptures when we serve the Lord. I learned that the things you need Deliverance from do not mean you are not saved. How I know I really got the understanding of salvation, is because I have meditated and prayed on it. Praying is powerful.
