The spiritual technique of SALVATION occurs when an individual accepts and is "quickened" by the expression of God's LOVE and MERCY. Salvation is yours when you get a revelation of God's love and mercy: a revelation or understanding-experience that causes you to open your heart to God, to trust Him, to welcome Him into your life; to surrender all to Him and have FAITH in Him as your Father. These acts bring you to a place where you begin to see others as your brothers and sisters and you develop FAITH in your eternal salvation - that you will exist in and with God forever. Your heart becomes totally committed to doing His will. This is possible because of the GRACE and GOODNESS of God. Herein is your salvation. This is the explanation of salvation by faith through grace.
This explains why some people recite the so-called sinner's prayer but do not experience salvation, even though they may think they have magically become saved. If at the Cross, an individual does not experience a soul-quickening transformation birthed from an understanding of God's love, resulting to a total acceptance of this love, he/she may not walk away saved. It does not matter the amount of sinner's prayer memorized and offered. God is not a magician.
As we understand the Heavenly Father better, we see that it is LOVE that saves. This love may be discovered and wholeheartedly embraced at the foot of the Cross or somewhere else. This explains why in Heaven, we would meet people from all walks of life, various faiths and different planets. The atonement doctrine of Christianity has so many loopholes. For starters, you cannot regard as justice, the punishment by God of an innocent man for the wrongs of guilty offenders. Even our human justice system knows better. How much more our Heavenly Father – the all knowing and all wise God? If you study human spiritual history very closely, you will learn that the demand for blood as a ransom was an age old practice instituted by fallen spirits of darkness. At a deeper esoteric level, Jesus chose to meet them at their level and gave them a crushing defeat at that level of blood-energy thirst. This is a matter of great significance at the angelic cosmic level that we may have to discuss at a different juncture.
Salvation is by faith through grace. Faith in what? And whose grace?
It is faith in God that He is your Father and He loves you. This is possible because of His grace. This is the summary of salvation. And this explains why we have aliens who are saved. Jesus would not go to their planets to die... And some of them do not yet know that Christ came to planet Earth as Jesus, let alone that he died, resurrected and ascended. So, why did Jesus die? There are very important reasons why. We may have to look at that question in another write-up.
When you understand these things, you will begin to see clearly the true meaning of the gospel that Jesus declared. He declared the good news that, “The Kingdom of God is within you”. This is true for God the Father has already placed His indwelling spirit, the Still Small Voice, within you. Jesus taught that God’s Kingdom is already within you. You just need to discover it by faith through God’s great grace. He did not teach that you must believe that without the shedding of his blood, your sins cannot be forgiven. The salvation message of Jesus is different from that of Peter or Paul. There are similarities. But there are differences. Study the Master’s teachings closely. He taught salvation and the Kingdom life. Please, look at what he placed emphasis on. It’s all there.
