Posted on 05/22/2013 9:08:51 PM PDT by Frank Broom
God's word in your mouth is your salvation. His word in your mouth and spoken out properly will produce your salvation. The word says the word of God is powerful(Hebrews 4:12), but for it to be powerful on your behalf it has to come out of your mouth. Romans 1:16 says, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Notice, it's the power of God unto salvation. That word salvation is translated heal, preserve, save, make well, deliver, rescue. So, the word of God is the power of God unto all of those things, but to him that believeth. Well, according to 2Corinthians 4:13 when you believe you speak. That agrees with Romans 10:10 with your heart you believe and with the mouth you speak. And that combination brings salvation into your life.
That's why Paul says in Romans 10:6-8, you don't have to call Jesus back, but the word is nigh you even in your mouth and in your heart. Notice, it has to be in both places. A lot of people have no problem believing the word has to be in your heart, but they have a problem believing that it has to be in your mouth. But, the Bible has a lot to say about the word being in your mouth and what it will do. Like Proverbs 12:6, the mouth of the upright will deliver them. And the 18th verse of that same chapter says, but the tongue of the wise is health(healing). Proverbs has a lot to say about the words of your mouth like Proverbs 14:3, the lips of the wise shall preserve them. Now we know when the Bible speaks of the mouth, lips, or tongue it is referring to your words. And what better words are there to use than God's words. Because it is He that creates the fruit of your lips (Isaiah 57:19).
this is bad theology...
I hate to disagree with you because I believe your heart is in the right place, but there is no combination of words a man can say or acts a man can perform to produce his own salvation. As it says in Jonah, “Salvation is of the Lord.” (Jonah 2:9)
Salvation is, from beginning to end, by grace. The old Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon said salvation was “all of grace.” We must be careful not to confuse the by-product of salvation with the means of salvation. Pay close attention to verse 8 in the passage below.
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
“Salvation is, from beginning to end, by grace.”
Sorry. Mixing the Old Testament, in regards to salvation and the how one comes to Christ don’t work in this situation.
I give you The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price.
and of course the Roman’s Road to Salvation.
.45 Long Colt I agree 100% that salvation is by grace, I didn’t say anything different. I’m talking about receiving that grace. And Romans 10:10 tells you how to receive that grace. Salvation does not just come to you, but you have to receive it. I’m not talking about producing my own salvation, but receiving his. Thanks!
I get the point and I agree...If you have Jesus in your heart, how can you not think and speak the words of God...
this is bad theology...
This is part of the so-called "word of faith" teaching that faith means you speak things into reality, and God wants all to be always healthy and wealthy (and supporting them) by so doing, and thus being poor, afflicted, sick, etc. is due to a lack of faith, and which is false teaching.
For while it is God's will that all be saved, it is not Scriptural teaching that all are to be always in perfect health and have abundant wealth. That is a different Jesus. Faith not only means things can be realized such as obtaining healing and material things (to be used for God's work), and stopping the mouths of lions, and escaping the edge of the sword, but also being able to wander about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented, and being sawn asunder. (Heb, 11:33-37)
Thus Paul knew both how to be abased, and how to abound, both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. (Philippians 4:12) And thus had had an ongoing affliction, and rejoiced in lacking necessities, distresses, etc, as his weakness required reliance upon God's power, and for the fully surrendered and consecrated apostle it resulted in the realization if it. Not in speaking healing of or deliverance from his affliction by God's power, but a manifestation of God power working thru the weakness of man.To the glory of God
Of which i must to grow and learn.
Yah'shua (Jesus) NAME in Hebrew is "YHvH be/is my salvation" see Joel 2:32; 1 Kings 18:24; Isaiah 12:4; Romans 12:13
