This is an interesting warning from Paul to Timothy:
"Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers." (1 Tim 4:16)
Most of us are pretty confident that we know how to be saved. Let us be watchful and make sure that we have a biblical understanding of how God offers us salvation from judgment.
Genesis 6:8-7:5 conveys the story of how Noah and his family were saved from the judgment of the flood. Today God offers salvation from judgment through Jesus Christ! How does God offer salvation from judgment? In this passage there are four descriptions of the coming of salvation from judgment.
- Salvation from judgment comes by grace.
- Salvation from judgment comes to the righteous.
- Salvation from judgment comes through God's design.
- Salvation from judgment comes through covenant.
Before I began this teaching, I showed a brief video of Ken Ham discussing Noah and the ark. You can view it here.
