 11 Do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.3

Philippians 2:12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation is to be delivered from sin. Salvation is being freed from even the desire of your sins." In His messages to the seven churches, Jesus mentions to every church, (all seven), how their works are key. Jesus said, I have not found your works perfect before God. Rev 3:2-3. Jesus wants perfect works.]

1 Thessalonians 5:8

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 8 But let us, who are to be of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.2 [These believers were still hoping for salvation to come; salvation is to be freed from all sin.]

1 Corinthians 1:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved the cross is the power of God.5 [Those who take up the inward cross of self-denial quickly experience the power of God to begin freeing them from sin. From the Word of the Lord within: "With the true gospel there is ample proof along the way. There are many that deny the cross and all that is necessary. He who is not on the cross is not worthy of me. The purpose of this website is to teach you how to carry your cross. Every man that comes, must come through the cross;—I say every man!"]

2 Corinthians 7:10

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 For godly sorrow produces repentance that leads to salvation, and is not regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. [Believers who do not repent and seek the Lord's help to learn what other ungodliness to deny until all evil is removed from their hearts, destroying even the desire for any and all sin, have not experienced salvation. Through repentance you must totally change; salvation is to be freed from all sin in thought, word, and deed.]

1 Peter 1:5-9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

 6 In that greatly rejoice though it is necessary to suffer a few griefs now through various trials, [To receive salvation and the kingdom you first must suffer through tribulations and hardships. This has been mistranslated to be: you may have to suffer; there is no mention of may or if necessary in the Greek. Indeed, all who are determined to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Tim 3:12. The same sufferings are being experienced by all your brothers in the world. 1 Pet 5:9. Salvation comes after suffering. "For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and scourges every son whom he accepts. If you are without chastisement [correcting rebuke and discipline], of which all [true sons of God] must share, then you are illegitimate, and not sons." Heb 12:6,8]

 7 So that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tried with fire, might result in praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; though you do not see him now, but believe in him, you rejoice with joy that is unspeakable and full of glory,

 9 Receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls.3 [Salvation comes after suffering; in fact, there are seven trials every son must endure before salvation and being accepted as a son.]

 2 Yearn like newborn babies for pure, spiritual milk so that you may grow up to salvation,1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Listen to and obey my voice; listen to my sweet words of wisdom. If you pay attention and obey, it results in union with God. He joins with our cleansed nature. We must become like Him to merge with Him."]

Ephesians 4:30

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 30 And do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption.8 [By obedience you receive the seal of the Holy Sprit, but you are still not redeemed. George Fox writes of when you are redeemed: "Men are justified by the believing, and in the faith and by the faith, and in believing they overcome, and have victory; and there are mortification, and sanctification, and redemption, and justification, all possessed together in the one, which is Christ, and this to the particular satisfaction."]

 15 For we are the sweet aroma of Christ unto God to those who are being saved; and to those who are perishing,

Hebrews 3:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end, [We can enter union with Christ and God if we through the Spirit mortify the sinful nature, which occurs if we heed and obey Him as we persistently and patiently wait for Him. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey His voice.]

Hebrews 10:36

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 36 For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise . [In order to receive the promised salvation you must endure in waiting, tribulations, suffering, and obedience to crucify your sinful nature. Then you are righteous, permanently freed from sin, translated into His kingdom, and in union with Christ and God.]

Hebrews 6:11-12

 11 And we desire that every one of you show the same diligence in realizing the full assurance of hope to the end. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Be like the early Church, who for inexpressible joy endured to the end."]

 12 So that you are not slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.3
