How we are saved
Psalms 119:144 -
Thy testimonies are righteous for ever: Give me understanding, and I shall live.
We were made Sons of God and had access to the Tree of Life so could live forever but due to sin entering us through Adam we lost access to the Tree of Life and were cursed to perish.
God the Son humbled Himself becoming Son of God came as man and by His sacrifice He paid the price for every soul that believes in Him. The generations of Adam were cursed to perish in prison (Hell) and Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for us to be free from this prison. Now we have a hope to enter Heaven and have access the Tree of Life and thus live forever.
The question comes now how can the sacrifice of one man pay the price of the millions, billions of people. For this we need understand spirit life. An Angel (Son of God) is a single spirit being, we too are single spirit being and are made same as the Angel but are living trapped in the flesh. A Cherubim (also known as Beast or Living Ones) are multi life beings. The book of Ezekiel describes them as full of eyes or having thousands of eyes; each eye represents a spirit life.
God the Son is the only being other than God the Father and His Spirit Who has life in Himself. So in Him is countless lives. As He humbled Himself and became a sacrifice He became a sacrifice for each and every one of us who believes in Him including those who were born, are born and will be born. This is the reason He is a personal sacrifice for each one of us and yet an eternal sacrifice.
We need to understand even though the sentence of perishing in Hell is canceled yet we will not enter Heaven unless we have the two things in us. Those two things are, one His testimony and second the understanding of His Word. That does not mean each one of us needs to be expert on the Bible. We in spirit are all connected to each other and also referred as one body therefore it means the whole of mankind together needs to get the understanding of His Word. The Blood sacrifice of Jesus made available the Spirit of God to man. Now the Spirit of God - the Spirit of Truth unfolds the Word to each one of us and over the time all mankind will have the full and proper understanding of the Word.

Lord Jesus, You are God and You left the Heaven of Heavens and humbling Yourself came as man to be an eternal sacrifice for each one of us. Lord we thank You for paying the price for our sins. We also thank You for making available your Spirit. Lord help us understand we all are one body in You and we need to work together with You as our head...

[ Reference Scripture ]
15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.
16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them [him].
1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
