A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Prayer is the path where there is none; and sincerity is prayer's vehicle. 

 

DOCTRINE OF SALVATION       
"For I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL OF CHRIST; for it is the POWER OF GOD to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek." [Romans 1. 16] 

 

The great theme of "salvation (Hebrew: yeshuw'ah)" is prominent in both OLD & NEW COVENANTS.  It means deliverance and can be used for local and specific deliverances from perils, as well as for the eternal deliverances of one's soul.   In the latter sense, it is used for deliverance from the penalty of sin, from the power of sin in our daily life, and from the very presence of sin in the future life. 

 

Salvation is found only through the LORD JESUS, the MESSIAH OF ISRAEL, WHOSE purpose for coming into the world was to "save HIS people from their sins." [Matthew 1. 21]  The name YESHUA (JESUS) is translated salvation.  Simeon, after waiting for many years, took the INFANT YESHUA in arms exclaiming by the SPIRIT, "My eyes have seen YOUR SALVATION." [Luke 2. 30]  

 

The theme of salvation is "so great" [Hebrews 2. 3], it embraces many major doctrines (Doctrine: that which is held to be true) of SCRIPTURE:
Doctrine of Atonement "For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have assigned it to you for making expiation for your lives upon the altar; it is the blood, as life, that makes atonement." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11 Tanakh, Torah]  

 

Doctrine of Substitution "But HE was wounded because of our sins, crushed because of our iniquities. HE bore the chastisement that made us whole, and by HIS bruises, we were healed." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  

 

Doctrine of Imputation "Blessed is the man to whom GOD imputes righteousness apart from works. Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute (charge) sin." [Romans 4. 6 - 8]  

 

Doctrine of Propitiation "And HE HIMSELF is the PROPITIATION (atonement/payment) for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world." [1 John 2. 2]  

 

Doctrine of Redemption "Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." [1 Peter 1. 18 - 19]  

 

Doctrine of Remission "To HIM (YESHUA) all the prophets witness that, through HIS NAME, whoever believes in HIM will receive remission of sins." [Acts 10. 43]  

 

Doctrine of Justification "Man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the Law." [Romans 3. 28]  

 

Doctrine of Adoption "Having predestined us to adoption as sons by JESUS CHRIST to HIMSELF, according to the good pleasure of HIS will." [Ephesians 1. 5]  

 

Doctrine of Reconciliation "For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to GOD through the death of HIS SON, much more, having been reconciled (made acceptable), we shall be saved by HIS life." [Romans 5. 10 - 11]  

 

Doctrine of Regeneration "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to HIS mercy HE saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the HOLY SPIRIT." [Titus 3. 5]  

 

Doctrine of Sanctification "HE (YESHUA) said Behold, I have come to do YOUR will, O GOD. HE takes away the first that HE may establish the second, by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of JESUS CHRIST once for all." [Hebrews 10. 9 - 10]  

 

Doctrine of Glorification "Moreover whom HE (YESHUA) predestined, these HE also called; whom HE called, these HE also justified; and whom HE justified, these HE also glorified." [Romans 8. 30]   From the JEWISH TALMUD regarding predestination: "Everything is foreseen yet freedom of choice is granted. Predestination is always conditioned upon GOD'S foreknowledge; the end of the act is predestinated; but the actors choose their part." 

 

When a person is saved, the blessings implied in every one of these great doctrines of salvation become his be they Jew or Gentile; whether found in OLD COVENANT, Prophecy or NEW COVENANT, Fulfillment.   No wonder Paul boasted, "I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL OF CHRIST, for it is the POWER OF GOD to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of GOD is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written The just shall live by faith." [Romans 1. 16 - 17]   Truly, Paul was not ashamed of this GREAT GOSPEL OF SALVATION through the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH; nor should we be ashamed! 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Believe on the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA and be saved…in the mighty hands of the MASTER you are complete and whole. Know that some glorious day we will behold that BLESSED HOPE and we will spend eternity in HIS PRESENCE and rest in the many promises that are to come into fulfillment when we but step into HIS arms.  Because CHRIST JESUS lives and is sovereign over all, we can face tomorrow and be comforted now. 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
