Salvations Recipient

Updated on June 20, 2014

Salvation, according to the Bible, is a very awesome thing. In fact, I am fully convinced that very few Christians (including myself) have really grasped the full extent of salvation, yet it is something that we Christians speak about very often.

Many times when we talk about salvation our mind immediately goes to that point in time when a person makes a decision to receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. And while this is the most awesome point in a person's life it is only the start and not the destination of Salvation. In studying our Bibles we will find that the Old Testament story of the Israelites exodus out of Egypt to the Promised Land is symbolic of our exodus from the power and dominion of the world as governed by Satan into the Promises of God.

Using the illustration above, there are three very distinct areas that God manifested Himself as being Lord over the Israelites when He delivered them.

The Bible records that when they left Egypt that there was not one feeble one among them. Think about the magnitude of what God did. There were estimated to be at least three million people and not one of them was inflicted with sickness, disease, or disability. God physically equipped them for the journey into the Promised Land.

The second thing that we see is that the Israelites were told that they were to go to their neighbors and borrow from them. One of the greatest non-military spoiling of an enemy ever recorded in history. God took the wealth of the heathen and gave it to His people.

The third powerful aspect of God's salvation was when He destroyed the army of the Egyptians. This army was coming after these people and God intervened on their behalf and protected them so that everyone would know who their God was.

If we take this Old Testament story and bring it over into the New Testament we find all three aspects as part of our new covenant. By the stripes of Jesus we are healed, God has promised us all sufficiency in all things, and God has told us that all Angels are ministering Spirit sent forth to serve those who are heirs of salvation.

As Christians we need to become recipients of our inheritance. We need to receive all of our salvation, not just the part that keeps us out of hell. God has done a great thing so that we can live by the power of His resurrection. Don't cut yourself short. Experience all that God has for you.
