EDITOR’S NOTE:

I deny the existence of neither Heaven nor Hell, but neither do I deny the possibility that grace can do its work postmortem.  As I have written elsewhere on this weblog, my great-grandfather’s opinions are not necessarily mine.

2 Cor. 6, 2 & Matt. 13, 16-17

I.

It is the teaching of scripture that Jesus came to save us in his life and that we are not forced to wait till the next world.

1.  We meet sin and its disturbances here.  Hence we need “a present help in trouble.”  Life is a torment with the knowledge of sin if thee is no deliverance.

2.  The world greatly needs the blessing of redeemed lives.  Hence Jesus prayed:  “Keep them from the evil.”

3.  We are to be acquitted or condemned at last for life here.

II.

Hence it appears what a blessing that we have a present salvation.  Jesus is the Messiah, this is His day and the acceptable time–the day of salvation.

1.  If he is able to save at all why can’t he save now?  Our salvation is by grace; not by transportation, or environment.  He is not dependent upon these things.

2.  He who is saved here is saved for all worlds.  This truth is everywhere accepted.  But the other side of it is also true, viz:  who is not saved in this life is not saved at all.

How is it with your soul?
