Welcome to worship you today after every continuing series of amazing Grace with a message about God's amazing salvation. I'm your host today and I'm here with my cohost Patrick has gone everybody. I'm definitely looking forward to today's message and for some of us.

Perhaps those were born and raised in the church, salvation is something we experience a long time ago and I'm curious how many of us still have that thought and wondered when we first got saved, you know, I don't think anyone wants to be apathetic or take for granted the moment they got saved, but I know before heard this message that there were times I didn't fully grasp how amazing that saving moment was worth. How truly good God is to offer salvation to us. I agree. I honestly think a lot of us have been in and I think there are those of us who ask God for salvation.

Often, as a bring up certain it happened or if we could lose it you absolutely can be so easy to swing one way or the other in our thinking about salvation. Well Pastor Robert definitely has a lot of truth to share with us about all of this.

So let's jump right in word series called amazing Grace and I'm toddling this message amazing salvation is salvation amazing and I believe you're a believer is completely amazing when you think about that were saved by grace you review a very well-known Scripture Romans 1013 for whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. This is a Greek word saved here so so we would spell it SOC ON English but it's has a DMA or sounding great soda soapsuds or show you some of the definitions of of this word so so all right to say to keep safe and sound to rescue from danger or destruction to save a suffering one from perishing to preserve the one is in is in danger of destruction to deliver from the penalties of the judgment to make one whole spirit, soul and body, so I have two points but I really only have one bird for the message I want to cover that in the first point and then basically. So what we do know I so here here's their support for support. Salvation is eternal, past, present and future salvation is eternal past, present and future. When you show you a few things only to understand the eternal mass of salvation.

Romans 623 for the wages. The pay for CN's death but the gift that's that's grace free of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. First John 225 and this is the promise that he has promised us eternal life.

First John 513 when my favorite scriptures. The whole Bible. These things I've written to you who believe in the name of the son of God, that you may know nothing you might hope, but that you may know that you have eternal life. Since God is eternal salvation is eternal. But when we think of eternal we stand only think of the future but eternal is the God always has always existed does exist and will always exist, but he existed before time. If you remember Moses said to him what your name and reveals for the first time Jehovah I am that I am I am that I am in that statement. I am that I am saying I'm eternal. I am that I am you tell Pharaoh I am thinking and and he didn't say this but I think you think you have a few questions I got to managers prepare for I am that I am. Her swelling about Here's what he was really saying I was before you were here I what I was here I am right now and I will be. I am that I am I am eternal Ellen show you again. I should turn Ephesians 1 emissaries mother scriptures first only show you phrase that you're familiar with probably. But what you might not know is it's only in the book of Revelation, and it's only in the book of Revelation. Five times but most of us are very family of this race. Revelation chapter 1 verse four.

This is John Ridings is grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come.

Now here he writes Revelation after his encounter someone show you where he gets that phrase from verse eight is when Jesus shows up first-person red. He says I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Now you I think John just thought that a breach like that phrase that there and he starts using the booking and there were times when he that phrase is repeated in the book by angels and by the 24 elders and the four living creatures. Revelation 48 and they do not rest day or night, saying, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come. Revelation 1117 we give you thanks the Lord God Almighty, the one who is, and it was and who is to come. Revelation 65 and I heard the angel water say your righteous award one who is and who was and who is to be Avery says it this way. 13. Hebrews 13 that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever.

He's the author of eternal salvation, eternal salvation, so there's a past present future tense of salvation and I will talk about that.

I brought the board up because I want you to see what were talking about rights all want to talk about the past, the present and the future TX of salvation. So this is salvation, and let's just take the person John who was who is and who is to come right past present future. Everyone got that. Okay, let's address this is salvation according to the Bible you have begun, you are being we could say you're being, and you will be saved if I'll make you happy and safe. You are being saved and you will be safe. Let me say it another way, and I showed you this, when we talk about sickness understand sickness you have been saved from the penalty of sin you're being saved as your learning, growing Christ in your soul. Your soul being converted from the power of sin and you will be saved from the presence of sin and just one other analogy is not really analogy, but I don't have time to go in to explain all that you have been saved in your spirit. You are being saved converted in your soul and your body will be saved. One day someone everyone follow that date. Here's where I want to go. Here's my burden of. I don't want to talk today about the present and the future tense. I want talk about the past tense set of salvation because please hear me if you don't understand that you have been. Then you have an incorrect view that you are being and that you will be if you don't understand what the Bible says about salvation in the past tense when he said another way, if you do understand what salvation says then you will have peace. In the present and faith for the future but if you don't understand past, then you will have pressure in the present and fear of the future listening to worship in the word. After sharing the message about foundation drinks. If you missed the first couple messages and amazing grace.

You can find many other messaging behind Pastor Patrick, I think it's really great when Pastor Robert goes into the Greek definition helps me understand things in a new and different way. Always so interesting. I love how early on in this message drift down the word or so was out in the creek. You know I really love that to you know, sometimes as Christians. The word saved her salvation can become so commonplace in our minds and conversations that it's good to go back to the root and make sure we really know the simplicity Lancaster Robert understand what salvation first so I think I do know about you but I want that for like three joint have to Robert this is good.

Just so you know this is really really good at all right now so this is if you understand this is if you don't understand day now I'm just just a few words here because of my Lord will be saved. Here are some words God uses justified sanctifying I know are being sanctified understand site data five accepted in the beloved right. D will give you one of those boards it writes. It's by itself that I just point and it's already there, someone else wrote it. Here's one that doesn't end with an ED, but it is past tense for Gavin. This is the Bible you have. If you have believed. You have been saved. And if you catch that will change your life, you'll be so excited you don't catch it will always be trying to achieve something when I want to sale quote here that you hope you never forget salvation is not a goal to be achieved is the gift to be received percent. Again, because it is better than you thought salvation is not a goal to achieve it as a gift to be received all through Scripture is described as a gift, a gift from God. The gift of God. All right, so I want to show you now Ephesians 1 and I just don't let you know what I thought about one other E the word here, and Jesus himself said ready for this one finished.

It is finished. It's finished. And if I believe I can receive the finished work of Christ in my life when I was 19 years old in a motel room. I was say the saved up, forgive, then the work justified death.

Sanctified except dad the okay I'm telling you, if you disbelieve the passport of salvation. It takes care of the present and future wonderful.

I saw Ephesians 1.

I want you look for past tense day. Ephesians 1 verse three Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has last blast's patches on does it say we'll bless us our hands blessed us is that future or past it past the Bible who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing while in the heavenly places in Christ, just as he chose us is he going to choose you, did he already choose past acts. He chose us in him you will see, here's a big past it before the foundation of the world that I past that we should be holy and without blame before Miller messed how are you ever going to be holy and without blame, except by the blood of Jesus Christ is the only way Joni white buys what having predestined in.

Now I know there's a lot of speculation on predestination. I believe in the production of God according to the foreknowledge of God the God knew and that he predestined, but I also believe that God predestined simply means to predetermine the destiny of Ptolemy predestined to predetermine a destiny. I tell you, God has a good destiny for every person that will choose it. Every person is a good destiny for everyone that will choose that good destiny so so don't get hung up on that word but I do want you notice that it's past tense predestined us to the adoption as sons by Jesus Christ himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace by which he made us except dad in the beloved. Are you going to be accepted. One day, or have you been accepted and all I'm doing is reading the Bible. This is this is language the Bible uses past it.

Ephesians 1 Allison let me nothing like it also talks about the present, future can't I understand that and I'm not. I'm not doing away with us continue to grow in Christ are walking in Christ not doing away with it. I'm simply saying that this will change your life when you understand that you received and I'll show you in a moment how he uses past tense to say when you trust dad when you believe you received story that I look in verse 11 in him.

Also, we have obtained an inheritance that is that say we will one day we have have we already have been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the Council of his will that we first trust dad testing. If you're a believer and you come to play for you trust in Christ in Christ should be the praise of his glory in him you also trust dad some of the Ephesian church of the believers past it after you heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation. We can say amazing salvation. Also, having believed, past tense. I do that when I was 19 and a motel room you were see old past tense with the Holy Spirit of promise, you were sealed cannot put that in Texan lick and stick lick it and stick it you have been sealed by the Holy Spirit. If that doesn't like your firewood sweat there something wrong if you don't get excited when you read Ephesians 1. Following your CEO by the Holy Spirit of promise. Now watch this is the guarantee while of our inheritance until the redemption watches of the per chest past dance possession purchased, but that possession got you from on your verifying Scripture you were bought with a price.

You are not your own.

I could do a whole message on that one. You don't even belong to you anymore your own by God Hector God ever loose something that he owns to the praise of his glory. Welcome back to listening to her second where the pastor rather I know Pastor Robert said it twice already. Thank you.

Security gang elevation goal to be achieved is not. I love back to God is such an amazing father. The cost for our souls was so high the sacrifice of his only son, Jesus, and as if that wasn't enough of the gift. He still has a good future and hope plan for us. It's not generic, cookie-cutter, good but specific personalized good for each and everyone continue to hear what first Corinthians 6 verse 11 is a first offer a reverse 11 there's a list of sinners of Syrians and sinners. People were involved in the sand before you go back and you can read this list. Let me just say this much. I'm not reading it just simply recycle time because I just don't have time to. But you're in the list guy Debbie scanned the list, that's amazing.

That's amazing. You all made the list were in the list. First Corinthians 6 verse 11 says and sought this list of sinners such were past tense. Some of you but you were washed on and that went up there to board washed, but you were sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the spirit of our God. Testing was lost by the blood of Jesus. I cannot be standing in front of you now preaching God's word. If you not washed me and sanctified me, set me apart and justified its amazing. So here's number two. So what I do know Luke 15 so what I do now. Luke 15 we can't read it all, but let's just read little sewing get it. What verse 415 verse four what man of you having 100 sheep if he loses one of them does not leave the 99 in the wilderness and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it, and when he has found it. He lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing, and when he comes on because the others friends neighbor saying to them, rejoice with me, for I found my sheep which was lost. I say to you that likewise there be more joy in heaven over one sinner repents than over 99 just persons who need no repentance or what woman having tea and silver corn coins. If she loses one does not light a lamp, sweep the house search carefully until she finds it. When she found it she called her friends and neighbors together, saying, rejoice with me, for I found the piece, which I lost. Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angel of God are one sinner repents okay so what you do when you find something that you lost rejoice right, we just read that if you this goes on talk about prodigal son and the father throws a party when he comes on so you need understand something. This is just talking about the person who finds what he's looking for God is rejoicing over you accepting a son is rejoicing over that okay but I want to flip this for moment we were born. Looking for favor with God and I asked Joe McGill what do you do when you find what you're looking for acid or North but I want to change that question just love it.

What's the first thing when you finally look for the listener. Here's the first thing you need to my not thought about the first thing you do we find what you're looking for is you stop looking for you never find it and keep looking. As I write and then we even have a little saying this kind of a stupid saying makes a zero site. I know it will be in the last place I looked, of course, it will because you don't find it, keep looking. What are you looking for my keys there your hand now found in the log wants to keep looking right. Do you know why many believers don't rejoice during our time of worship because their steel looking for favor with God and I'm telling you, you found if you believed if you believe now some of you have found because you believed you in your mind not your heart by living satirically after leaving heart say what's the difference. Ephesians 1 use the word trust standup trusted some yahrzeit you're not saved up that you have been saved because there's no place where you stop going your way and started going nuts. What and I know what you're thinking is saying and say here's one since the Bible says you will know them by their fruits you probably think we not my judge know, but I'm afraid inspector you're still living for you. You're still going your way, you're still in charge.

Listening carefully because you're granted if you don't, you're on your way to help your on your way to hell sir if you're still the boss in your life when you get saying that you put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

When you put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, you will be saying that we are all on the list is broken alive, praise the Lord gift of salvation is open to all who believe. No matter what you've done, he still offers his saving grace. I just want to ask everyone is listening. What is the Holy Spirit saying to you about this message. Have you given your heart and your will to Jesus Christ. But you need to rejoice again in the amazing gift of salvation you received a long time ago. We hope you take some time to think about all.
