Salvation In The Name Of Jesus

Matthew 1:18-25 > Jesus Means God Is Salvation, God Saves > When We Couple The Name Jesus With The Name Christ We Are Confessing That Jesus Is The Christ, ie The Messiah, The One Anointed By God To Save The World > One Of The Earliest Creeds Of The Church Was Simply "Jesus Christ" - That Says It All.

The Ancient Church Teaches That These "Seven" Are The Seven Archangels. In The Book Of Tobias (Tobit), Which Was Included In The Septuagint*, Raphael Identifies Himself As One Of The Seven Archangels. Raphael Means "It Is God Who Heals". In Tobias Chapter 12 Raphael Disquises Himself As A Human, Keeps Tobias Safe On A Journey, Chases Away A Demon, And Heals Tobias Of His Blindness. In John 5:3-9, Is It Possible That The Angel That Was Believed To Stir The Water Was Raphael???

*The Septuagint Was The Greek Translation Of The Hebrew Scriptures (Our Old Testament), and was the Scriptures of the early Church. Thus, The People Of Jesus Day Would Have Been Familiar With The Book Of Tobias And Therefore Knew Of Raphael.

> Titus 2:11-14
***Blessed > To Pronounce Happy > Eulogeo In The Greek > To Invoke Blessings > Ephesians 1:3

***Hope > Something In The Future For Sure >

> Ephesians 1:3-14 > God's Future Plan Revealed
> Ephesians 2:7-18 > God's Plan For A Body, The Church
> Ephesians 3:8-11,21 > God's Eternal Purposes

            The Hope Of The Redemption Of Our Bodies

> 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
***At The Coming Of The Lord (verse 15) ie. Christ's Second Coming.

> 1 Corinthians 15:19,20,41-54
***The Physical Body Is Raised. "...The Resurrection Body Is Said To Be A Spiritual Body. This Does Not Mean That At The Resurrection Our Bodies Will Be Somehow Dematerialized; But We Are To Remember That Matter As We Know It In This Fallen World, With All Its Inertness And Opacity, Does Not At All Correspond To Matter As God Intended It To Be. Freed From The Grossness Of The Fallen Flesh, The Resurrection Body Will Share In The Qualities Of Christ's Human Body At The Transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-8) And After The Resurrection (John 20:26-29). But, Although Transformed, Our Resurrection Body Will Be In A Recognizable Way The Same Body As That Which We Now Have: There Will Be Continuity Between The Two." (Bishop Kallistos Ware, The Orthodox Way, P. 136)

In The Words Of St Cyril Of Jerusalem:

    It is this selfsame body that is raised, although not in its present state of weakness; for it will  "put on incorruption" (1 Corinthians 15:53) and so be transformed...It will no longer need the foods which we now eat to keep alive, nor stairs for its ascent; for it will be made spiritual and will become something marvellous, such as we cannot properly descibe.

And St Irenaeus:

Neither the structure nor the substance of creation is destroyed. It is only "the outward form of this world" (1 Corinthians 7:31) that passes away -- that is to say, the conditions produced by the fall. And when this "outward form" has passed away, man will be renewed and will flourish in a prime of life that is incorruptible, so that it is no longer possible for him to grow old any more. There will be "a new heaven and a new earth" (Revelation 21:3); and in this new heaven and new earth man shall abide, for ever new and for ever conversing with God.

> Romans 8:16-25
 ***We Are Saved By Hope!!! The Firstfruits Of The Spirit Groans Within Us/Yearns Within Us, For The Redemption Of Our Bodies. *** Adoption Is When We Become The Full-Blown Children Of God And That Takes Place At Christ's Second Coming. *** All Of Creation Groans And Is Waiting For The Manifestation Of The Sons Of God (King James Vesion).

>1 John 3:2,3
*** When Christ Apears We Shall Be Like Him***We Shall See Him As He Is***This Hope Should Inspire Us To Purify Ourselves.

> Philippins 3:20,21
***We Shall Be Changed***Our Vile Body Will Be Fashioned Like Unto His Glorious Body (King James)***"Vile Body" Is Better Translated As "Lowly Body" Or "Body Of Our Humiliation" (Vines Expository Dictionary, Pages 238,239). Our Physical Bodies Are Not Vile As In Evil Or Bad. It Is Our Fallen Nature Which Is Bad/Sinful. Our Bodies Are Good, They Are Temples Of The Holy Spirit (1Corinthians 6:19,20).

> Colossians 3:1-4
***When Christ Appears We Shall Appear With Him In Glory. ***"Appears" In Greek Is "Phaneroo", And The Deeper Meaning Is "To Be Manifested", "To Be Brought Forth Into Light", "A Revelation Of The True Light".

> 1 Corinthians 13:12
***We Shall See Christ Jesus Face To Face***


***How Believing In God's Future Promises Will Effect/Transform The Way You Live***

> 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:16
***Eternal Judgment***Eternal Rewards***

> 1 Peter 1:3-9,13-17
***This Glorious Truth Leads To "Joy Unspeakable"***

> Hebrews 10:31-11:3,8-16
***Eternal Values***2 Timothy 2:3,9,10***Mark 4:14-20***
1 Timothy 6:6-19***


                                   LORD HAVE MERCY

Mercy > Eleos in Greek > To Feel Sympathy With The Misery Of Another > Especially Sympathy Manifested In Act > To Have Pity, To Have Mercy > Likened To Oil, As In Olive Oil, Being Poured Into The Wounds Of Our Hearts For Comfort And Healing > Hesed In The Hebrew > Meaning Is Steadfast Love > Lord, Soothe, Comfort, Heal, Show Me Your Mercy, Your Steadfast Love.

> Ephesians 2:4-6

> Titus 3:4-7

> Pslam 51
David's Prayer Of Repentance Begins With "Have Mercy Upon Me , O God".

> Psalm 103:1-5,11-14
His Mercy Has Removed Our Sins "As Far As The East Is From The West".

> Luke 5:30-32
Christ's Mission Was Partly As The Physician. He Reveals That Our Sins Make Us Sick Spiritually, We Are Wounded By Our Own Sins And The Sins Of Those Against Us. Repentance, A Complete Change Of Mind And Direction, Opens The Door For Christ To Pour In The Oil And The Wine To Effect A Cure And A Healing, To Save Us From Our Sinful Condition.

> Luke 10:25-37
The Good Samaritan Is A Picture Of Christ Healing The Wounded Samaritan By Pouring In The Oil And The Wine. How Do We Appropriate The Oil And The Wine? By Christmation, Being Anointed To Receive The Holy Spirit, And By Holy Communion. The Inn Is The Church. And Christ Is Going To Return!!!

> Isaiah 53:4,5 > Matthew 8:14-17 > 1 Peter 2:19-25 *Verse 24* > James 5:13-20 > Jesus Is The Healer, The Healer Of Soul And Body > God Wants Us To Be Healed Soul And Body > By His Stripes/Wounds Were/Are We Healed Soul And Body > Note That These Verses Inform Us That Sins Are Viewed As Sickness In Need Of Healing > Once Healed Of Our Wounds: Our Blindness (Matthew 9:27-31; Matthew 20:29-34; Mark 8:22-26; John 9:1-38), Our Deafness (Mark 7:31-37), Our Dumbness (Matthew 9:32-34), Our Deafness And Blindness Caused By Demons (Mark 9:14-27), Our Paralysis (Matthew 9:1-7; Luke 5:17-26; Mark 2:1-14), Our Palsy (Matthew 8:5-13), Our Epilepsy (Matthew 15:21-28),Our Dropsy (Luke 14:1-6),Our Weak Limbs (Matthew 12:9-14; Mark 3:1-6), Our Internal Bleeding (Mark 5:25-34; Matthew 9:20-22), Our Fever (Matthew 8:14,15), Our Demons (Mark 1:23-28; Luke 4:31-37; Matthew 8:28-34; Luke 8:26-39), Our Leprosy (Matthew 8:1-4; Mark 1:40-45; Luke 5:12-16; Luke 17:11-19), Our Disfigurement (Luke 13:10-17), Our Deadness (Matthew 9:18-26; Luke 7:11-17; John 11), Now We Can Live Unto Righteousness.

***Have You Ever Noticed How You Are Blind, You Are In The Dark Because Your Spiritual Eyes Have Cataracts***Have You Ever Noticed Your Deafness, Your Ears Can't Hear The Voice Of God Because They Have Damaged Eardrums From Listening To The Demonic Frequencies Of The Worlds Lies***Have You Ever Noticed How You Want To Do Good But Your Will Is Weak, Crippled, Like A Withered Hand***Have You Ever Noticed How You Seem To Be Controlled By Unseen Forces***Have You Ever Noticed How You Can Be Thrown Into A Fit Like Someone With Epilepsy***Have You Ever Noticed How You Sense The Wounds In Your Soul Are Bleeding***Have You Ever Felt Literally Paralyzed, Unable To Move Because Of Bitterness Or Shame***Have You Ever Felt Dead Inside, Lifeless, Unfeeling, Uncaring, Unable To Muster Compassion, You Are Like A Dead Man Walking***Cry Out "Lord Have Mercy".
