Rightly Dividing The Word “Saved”!
Years ago the Lord was teaching me about the mechanics of salvation unto eternal life. He showed me that the Bible, as we have it now, does not differentiate between the word “saved” when it is referring to salvation unto eternal life and the word “saved” when it is referring to salvation in the physical, salvation in this life. Both were translated “saved” in English.
When the Lord showed me this I understood it, but I had no idea how far reaching this problem goes into the false doctrines of men concerning salvation unto eternal life and even causing the condemnation of people at times when there should be none. The results of this mistranslation, this lack of understanding, bleeds out into any number of subjects such as the Kingdom of God, cast into outer darkness, scriptures and more. It is like an oozing poison attacking people, the truth, and the purposes of God. The enemy of mankind loves it.
I was given this particular knowledge about the word “saved” years before the Lord told me, “No man can translate without getting his doctrines in it.” Whether this happened because of man’s doctrines or just a simple mistranslation is really irrelevant. God reveals we are to rightly divide His Word and this mistranslation, or lack of translation, causes a great misunderstanding when it comes to the big picture concerning salvation.
I will share what happened and then we will look into some of the effects of not totally understanding where our eternal salvation is seated permanently. I will also share examples of “Salvation in the Physical,” the Mechanics of, or the pattern necessary for us to obtain “salvation in the physical” in this day as the Lord’s Bride!
One day while God was teaching me about the “mechanics of eternal salvation,” I was reading my Bible to have some words lift up off the page about a half inch. The Lord brought my attention to the word “saved” in the following scripture.
I Peter 3: 20
Which sometime were disobedient, when once the long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
The Lord began dealing with me about the word “saved” here being different than the word “saved” in what Paul taught concerning salvation unto eternal life.
Romans 10: 9
That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
I don’t know if I was engulfed in the vision or what but somehow I saw the spelling of the words, I think in Hebrew, and they were different. The Lord took me to the following scripture to further confirm the separation of “salvation unto eternal life” from the “salvation in the physical” in this life that we work out by obeying Him and not breaking God’s laws.
Matthew 5: 19
Whoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments (law), and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
At that point I realized that there were people in heaven right then who had declared their belief in Jesus to another person on this earth, obtaining eternal salvation, even though they taught God’s word incorrectly. Some had even taught that baptism in water saves you or that you gain eternal salvation by praying a prayer of salvation. These people who taught God’s word incorrectly are called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven, but are still in Heaven! Saved! Why? Because they had accidentally worked a single covenant promise correctly even though they didn’t understand it! Wow, what a learning experience! It was soon after that that I was given the understanding of “why” Paul the apostle had turned a person loose for the destruction of their flesh so that their spirit might be saved.
I Corinthians 5: 5
To deliver such an one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Paul did not want this person to lose their salvation unto eternal life, He knew they were headed down a path towards the possibility of denying Christ.
You Can Lose Your Eternal Salvation
The Bible is clear that a person can lose their salvation unto eternal life, but It is not like a lot of people think. You do not lose your salvation unto eternal life because you sinned after your spirit was born again. (We are all sinners and fall short as the Bible says.) People ask me how we lose our salvation unto eternal life and I have told them that a person does the reverse of how they obtained eternal life. Here is an example of denying Jesus: If you were brought before a firing squad and told to denounce Jesus, or your belief in Jesus, or be shot, you better not do it. You will lose your eternal salvation and have your name struck from the Lamb’s Book of Life. This is an example of “the picture” we need to understand of how a person loses their eternal salvation. So always hold on to your confession or declaration of belief in who Jesus is.
(The movie on The Mechanics of Salvation on this site reveals scripturally, with evidence, how a person’s spirit is born again through covenant promise. It is real and if you are paying attention you can feel it happen. I’m not going to go over all of the teaching here as you can get the information in the movie or in the written sections of this site. Because of the experience I just partially shared, I knew the Lord was implanting in me that salvation unto eternal life is very simple, ratified at the cross by Jesus establishing covenant. It works every time, and every other form of salvation through any kind of works on our part has to do with all the various salvations besides eternal salvation. The eternal is in Christ’s work on the cross and all the other salvations in this life are something we take part in or work out with the help of Christ as the Bible reveals.)
The Law Could Not Do It
To sin is to break God’s Law and to break the Laws of God is to sin. The Bible is clear that Jesus did what the law could not do.
Romans 8: 3
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Acts 13: 39
And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
So we see that if the Law could not give us eternal life (it is a gift, not earned), we should also see that the Law, or sin, cannot take away eternal life. The breaking of the law (sin) cannot, of itself, take away our eternal salvation because our eternal salvation (the gift) is in Jesus, not in the Law.
Sinning can however, open so many doors to the enemy that a spirit can come in and control someone so much that it causes that person to denounce Jesus. The spirit of pride can be a killer in this instance. This is no doubt part of “why” Paul turned the person over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh so they would not fall completely into losing their eternal salvation. (I should inject here that if a person becomes possessed by certain spirits, a spirit can speak through a human and denounce Jesus. This does not mean the person denounced Jesus - God knows the spirit did it. There is a marked difference.)
After the Lord got this picture (separation of eternal salvation from the salvation we work out) planted in me, He opened up a lot of “whys” in scripture. I have already given you one about “why” Paul turned over a person to Satan for the destruction of the flesh. (There are more “whys” that have been revealed to me on this site.)
It was after the realization of this separation between salvation unto eternal life from salvation in this physical life that the Lord showed me that I had the Helmet of Salvation on my head. I was shocked and had not asked for it or sought it. Here is something already on the site:
God spoke back to me out of the vision, "It is pride for them to think they could know anything, not getting it from Me!"
I have been told that I know how the Marriage Ceremony of the Lamb takes place and that I understand the Mechanics of Eternal Salvation. Everything else is, “I only know in part!” It is dangerous to think we know something without the Lord revealing that we know it, yet there are numerous people who think they know a lot of things concerning a lot of subjects. Most don’t realize they are just walking in the patterns they grew up in. We must talk about these wrong patterns as well as the right patterns or we won’t have the total picture. It’s kind of like when the Lord told me, “You have to know what a scripture doesn’t say to know what it does say.” So if we don’t know the wrong patterns, we will not really see the full picture of the right patterns. The Lord has revealed how serious it is.
After I started writing this article, in a ministry meeting on 12-20-2009, we were given the word “charlatan” with some instruction. God is not being critical here but just revealing truth. That truth can set us free if we let it. In general, charlatans are people falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill. Going back into the origin of the word, it denotes an itinerant seller of supposed remedies.
I was then given a dream on 12-24-2009 and suddenly realized the Lord had given it to use in this article because I was looking at charlatans.
This was a very long scene of people being controlled by other people. The controllers were all dressed casually, like those they were controlling. The people being controlled were in jail but there were no bars. In the scene I was being controlled at first, but then there came a point where I was no longer controlled by any other people (I had been set free!). The scene continued and I kept watching people being controlled by other people, leaving them in this unseen jail. Most of the time it was two people controlling one or two other people. It was all just here and there at different times throughout the crowd that seemed to be in a courtyard. (After I awoke from the scene I realized that the controllers were not organized and they really didn’t have any authority to be controlling anyone. They were doing their own thing and they were “charlatans!”)
God says, “Let us reason together!” This certainly indicates we need to use our minds. I have said many times that if Christians would use their minds more instead of just assuming things, they would realize they have a false idea or a false doctrine in their life. I have chosen to call this section Plain Talk because, at the direction of the Lord, my intent is to expose a few of these unreasonable ideas and unreasonable things people say. Concerning the Holy Spirit’s teaching ability, the Lord said, “If something suddenly strikes you as being simple and it makes sense, it’s true.” “Making sense” has to do with using our minds and putting things together.
Christians are in a serious business and there is no room for error. I was saved not because the pastor actually knew and understood how salvation unto eternal life works but because of the leading of the Holy Spirit. What if this man had not obeyed God’s leading? God wants this problem corrected.
I had the Lord tell me years and years after He taught me the Mechanics of Salvation unto eternal life that my daughters would still not be saved had He not entered my life. It is highly probable that even to this day they would still not be saved. I owe the Lord!
Let me start with one scenario that is fairly common. There are many Christians who believe in deathbed confessions. Yet some of these same people in a non-deathbed confession situation will say that someone was not really saved (unto eternal life) because there had been no change in their life; they didn’t get rid of some sort of sin in their life. These two ideas are not consistent with each other. If we are going to believe both ideas are true then we should kill any person who has made a confession immediately before they have a chance to sin. Think about it!
Getting rid of sin (after your declaration of who Jesus is to another person) does bring a salvation in the physical. It shuts doors to the enemy of mankind. God wants everyone to do this! But for people to say you must get rid of sin (after your declaration of who Jesus is to another person) or you’re not saved unto eternal life is salvation by works theology. Paul was clear: salvation unto eternal life is not by or through our works but through Jesus Christ.
Galatians 2: 16
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law (sinlessness), but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Paul spoke against the idea of the Law, or the absence of sin, saving you.
Galatians 5: 4
Christ is become of no effect to you, whoever of you are justified by the law (not sinning); you are fallen from grace.
The error of not understanding where salvation unto eternal life is seated allows for wrong ideas to seep into our thinking. I’ve heard pastors say people are going to hell if they don’t get sin out of their lives, which is salvation unto eternal life by works. The Bible says all have sinned and fallen short, so we see these very pastors have sin in their lives and according to their own doctrine they won’t make it.
Think about it!
Salvation Through Obeying God
There is another type of justification (salvation) that comes through works, through obeying God!
James 2: 25
Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
Rahab (and her house) received a physical salvation as a reward.
Joshua 6: 17
And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
Noah received a physical salvation (and all who were in his house) through his faith in God and through his own works, his obedience. It all works together. So we see there is a justification, a type of physical salvation, through obeying God.
I have shared two justifications or salvations revealed in scripture, but what about this type of physical salvation in our day? How would you like to have the Lord say this to you?
MY presence is as a sweet aroma, delighting you because you are MINE. Living in MY presence brings blessings unfamiliar to the world. This is because I hold you in MY hands and keep you. I have given you a heart to be separate from the world. The world's offers don't last. True beauty is made by ME. It is nothing created by man. Satan tries to distract you with polish but it is not working on you all. The world is tilted out of whack, out of alignment. Stay away from distractions. Focus. Keep your focus on ME.
I know the couple who received this in their Golden Meeting. These are the same people whom the Lord delivered from the hurricane that hit Houston 9/13/08. Living just a football field length from the gulf they had been told to move to a particular town. The Lord even told them what size the hurricane would be and that they were not to tell people; that He would reveal to whom He would reveal. It is obvious to me that the Lord wanted to present a picture of Him being able to protect His Bride through her obedience. The man said they would have lost their business had they not obeyed. The Lord gave no choice as to where they were to move. They were saved from a lot of anguish in this life. They were justified, saved in the physical, just like some people in the Bible were saved by their works, their obedience, and it happened in this day. This was not “saved unto eternal life” but “saved in the physical,” justified through their faith and their previous obedience!
What had they done? They started to walk in the “Mechanics of how to walk as the Lord’s Bride.” They had rid themselves of the three spots link, come out of the church link, and most importantly started to follow after the “things of the Spirit!” link They were having Golden Meetings link and as you can see from reading the word to them, the Lord is well pleased with them. They had allowed the Lord to build a relationship with them that comes no other way. This is because it is the Lord’s design!
I have told this story because Christians need to see that there is a justification, a salvation that can come in the physical by obeying the voice of the Lord in this day. It is important to learn the Mechanics of “Physical Salvation” as well as the “Mechanics of Eternal Salvation.” Both need to be walked in during these Last Days. It is important for Christians to realize the Lord is bringing forth His Bride and they need to get into what He is doing now, in this day. When God delivered Israel from Egypt, the people had to get into the flow of what God was doing. When they got out of the flow, things went awry. It’s the same now. He is manifesting His Spotless Bride; Christians need to get in His flow. Yet the Lord has revealed that few know it!
We as Christians must learn to keep the two different justifications, the two different salvations, separate. Number one being the eternal justification (eternal salvation) through Jesus Christ; number two being our physical justification unto salvation in the physical on this earth. Is this couple I have shared about sinless? No more than you or I are sinless! As the Lord has said, we as Christians need to focus on Brideship (not sin)! If the enemy can keep our eyes focused on sin, then we will never focus on Brideship; it’s not possible to focus on both at the same time! The main focus is to be on Brideship and focus on sin must take a second seat.
The Lord wants the condemnations to stop. I have had people tell me they gave up because they fell back into sin after turning from it. Some even think they are going to hell because it has been preached to them that way. It is sad because they do hold the key in their heart that Jesus is the true Son of God and that He died for them. Where did this false concept of eternal salvation through our works come from? Was it inspired by the church, or the devil himself?
The Python spirit has had a heyday with “salvation unto eternal life” through works. I remember years ago when the Lord dealt with me about a vision given on a tape and shared in some of the churches where a person was taken to hell. In hell there were special types of tortures for those who did not begin or finish their God-given ministries. A man who was attending our meetings wanted to play the tape but the Lord stopped me from letting it happen by revealing it was a python experience this person had. The Lord dealt with me revealing the subconscious picture given in the pythonic scene was that a person was going to go to hell if they didn’t finish their God given call. My eyes were suddenly opened to all the condemnation of believers in the person’s experience! This was salvation by works and it was being introduced into the church through a Python experience.
The church is generally ignorant of the Python spirit. Not knowing where salvation unto eternal life is seated is part of what allows the Python to operate unknowingly. We must understand that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus and to walk with Him as His Bride, His liaison, we should not have condemnation in us either. There are ways to speak and do things correctly without condemnation on our part.
As I said, the Lord wants the condemnations to stop. I had a young man contact me and tell me of a particular sin in His life that he was working to abolish. He brought up the scripture:
I John 1: 9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
He told me that he could not go to his pastor or they would throw him out of his church. See the condemnation the Lord is talking about! Anyway, he confessed his sin to me and I told him the Lord would deliver him. I’m not sure how long, but I think it was four or five months later we crossed paths again and the young man told me he had had no problem with the sin since the phone call. The Lord had delivered him! The covenant promise that has to do with “salvation in the physical” worked.
We as Christians need to understand the concept of covenant promises working independently and not assume something because one of them worked in our lives. Here is a scripture some pastors use to suggest that if you have done this you will obtain eternal life.
Revelation of John 3: 20
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
When I was about 8 or 9 years old, my two brothers and I were harassing our mother on a Sunday. She was trying to read the Sunday newspaper and had gone out to our pickup to read it. We followed her out, still harassing her. She soon started the pickup, saying she was leaving, and headed down the road. Being young, I thought she was leaving for good and I ran about an eighth of a mile south on our farm to a crossing in a creek. I cried out to God to bring her back, seeking Him with all my being. I heard a voice saying, ”A man is the sum total of his experiences!”
With that I headed back to the house, wondering! I didn’t know it was the Lord at the time. I started to realize that some of the people I knew who seemed to have an ax to grind, so to speak, had had something happen in their life to cause them to act the way they were acting. I saw this when I was on the school board and all through my life. Knowing this has helped me be more forgiving towards certain people by knowing there is a reason they think this way or act a certain way.
The reason I have brought up this experience is because I know it had to do with seeking the Lord with all my heart and He answered me, yet I was not saved, my spirit was not born again until I was in high school.
I had “open(ed) the door, (and) “I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me,” had happened in my life before the covenant promise of eternal life had worked in my life. Some would say it wasn’t God who spoke to me because of what was said. I know it was and He had something much more important to tell me than what I was praying about. (What I was praying about wasn’t even real; my mom had not left!)He has done this a lot in my life. He will do it in yours also because of His great love for you and your well being. Once you are seeking Him hard and you open the door He may tell you something a little different than the subject you are on. If your child needed to know something but they were not listening at all up until a certain moment, would you not tell them what they needed to know in that moment when they were listening? In this we see the love of the Lord. This is also why Christians need to learn to do Golden Meetings to, “... open the door,” on a regular basis. Link
So we see from this experience and the young man’s experience, where he called me to confess his sin, that covenant promises work independently. It is highly important to see the covenant promise that gives “eternal life” works independently from the covenant promises that “give life in this physical life!”
Here is another false doctrine that I want to use to lead into an important point. I had a friend contact me through e-mail and phone. In the conversation it was revealed that he was having to stand against a few people he knows, some well-known men, who were falling into various variations of: everyone is going to become saved before it’s all over because there is no eternal hell. Later in our e-mail conversation he told me that he was being called a lot of things and that one had even told him he was going to hell! Oops! Here is one of these people saying there is no hell, but telling someone they are going to go there. I guess we could call that a no brainer, literally. Speaking without thinking is bad but teaching without thinking is worse.
(I testify clearly there is a hell as I saw it from heaven.)
What I want to inject here is something the Lord said to me when He was teaching me about eternal salvation. He said, “Get their spirit born again and then I can work on them from the inside!” He also told me never to assume that any pastor (even big names) is saved. On the main page of this site there is a link to the testimony of pastor Jericho who had preached, led people through the prayer of salvation, and baptized many to find out that he was not saved. He had been through all of this himself yet his spirit had never been born again! We must realize that false doctrines in the church can come about this same way because, as the Lord revealed, 48% of the believers have spirits which are not born again. (We also know that the Python spirit is involved, even in those whose spirits are born again. They simply have darkness in their pool. link)
There is a difference in God being able to work on a person from the inside, opposed to working from the outside. If this were not true, He would not have said, “Get their spirit born again and then I can work on them from the inside!”
This is a bigger obstacle than it appears to be. It must be important to realize or God would not have told us. These believers who come up with there is no hell, there is no devil, and the like are certainly candidates for the possibility of their spirits not having been born again. God knows, we don’t, but we should recognize all the possibilities and act accordingly.
While writing this article the Lord gave me a scene on 1-1-2010, in which people had to eat some very hard candy. It was so hard that they had to use their back teeth to crack it, and I wondered if they could. It was like a rock! It was gold in color and sweet (at least on the outside). In the scene it was also revealed that these same people had to kill their pets. The pets were blondish (dingaling thinking) with a little gold mixed into their hair. I realized the scene had to do with this article and in fact was given for it. God was simply revealing symbolically what Christians have to do!
Refined salvation information has to do with the gold color and this information is “oh so sweet” for the true liaison of the Lord! It is freeing and as solid as a rock! The reason for the small amount of gold in the pets blondish hair has to do with the small amount of truth people have in their doctrines concerning salvation. Different denominations (sects) have their own ways (pets) of salvation unto eternal life. Here are a few:
Some churches say you have to be a member of their congregation to gain eternal life. “Salvation unto eternal life by works.”
Some say you must partake of their particular communion. “Salvation unto eternal life by works.”
Some people say you must be practicing the Sabbath on Saturday or you are going to hell. “Salvation unto eternal life by works.”
The list can go on and on. These people have gotten away from what Jesus accomplished at the cross and the fact that eternal salvation is all in Him!
I Corinthians 1: 18
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us which are saved it is the power of God.
Pets have to do with, well here is an excerpt from the article:
“The first time the Lord showed me a person's doctrinal pet He revealed that it was a doctrine (belief) the person (owner or holder) didn't want to give up. Here I must emphasize that the word "doctrine" could be translated "teaching," but in this case the doctrine (set of thoughts on a certain subject) had never been taught to this person. It was something this Christian had grown up with or grown into because it was happening, being practiced, as "the way you do it" for years. It was something they wanted to believe, something they wanted to hang onto. Thus we see a correlation between wanting to keep something that is not true, and wanting to keep a pet.” Read the whole article.
In the scene it was revealed that those who ate the candy had to also kill their pets. It is a complete package. You can’t do one without doing the other and have God’s desired results!
Right side of Mercy:
In a Ministry Meeting on 12-27-09, it was reported that the Lord had said, “right side of mercy” in a personal Golden Meeting. The person reporting took it as something the Lord is going to be teaching us and leading us into. We didn’t know why the Lord had said, “right side of mercy,” but we were soon to find out more! On 1-2-2010, I received this from Patrice in Europe (in italics):
Jesus words came to me as "abide in Me and My Word." Also I perceived clearly that the Lord is sending a wave of Mercy to the unbeliever (for salvation) and believers to consecrate themselves back to Him as they have forgotten their first love”
Seeing this, the situations I had written about in this article started racing through my mind. It suddenly hit me that the charlatans the Lord has built a picture of in this article are certainly unknowingly on the wrong side of Mercy. Especially those who tell people they are going to hell because of sin.
The Lord Reveals His Desire:
The Lord gave me another scene on 1-2-2010, to place in this article. I had thought I was done. In the scene I saw the scene of the Golden Floor given to us years ago, on which Christians are to walk. It’s the floor that reveals we must pay attention to the three main spots all the time, or we might stumble in our walk with the Lord. The Golden Floor was superimposed through a man in his feet and in his heart area. I knew the Lord was revealing how important Rightly Dividing the Word “Saved” is to Him and to us. The Lord wants us to understand the difference between eternal salvation, physical salvation, and how to walk in both, keeping them in our hearts because it is most precious in His own Heart.
