SALVATION PROCESS ACCORDING TO PETER
The salvation process as set forth in 1 Peter 1:3-9 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
Italics are a paraphrase------Blessed be the God and Father of our resurrected Savior, who according to His great mercy caused us to be born again, saved.(study John 3)
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
To make us His-child that will inherit heaven which is surely reserved for us.
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
who are protected by the power of God through faith for salvation that His-children will understand in the last time.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
For the assurance of salvation, we greatly rejoice, although we endure trials during our short time on earth.
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
When Jesus raptures you to Him ( 1 Thes 4), your faith, though tested by severe trials, will be praised by Jesus from His Judgement Seat as He rewards God's-Children immediately after the Rapture.
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Although you have not seen Him physically, you love Him believing in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. By faith which is taking God at His word, you received His love gift of salvation.
