THE ABC OF SALVATION
Based on the kind of death Jesus Christ was going to suffer, God’s salvation was once and for all demonstrated in the following series of verifiable works.
In the preliminaries, Jesus fixed single-handedly the day of his death (1), identified himself for arrest (2), proved untouchable without self-surrender (3), was found to be beyond reproof without self-incrimination (4) and waived his right of appeal (5).
In the finals, he died in the flesh by his own timing, will and power (6) proving to be the “I Am Who I Am”, a.k.a., Almighty God and “the resurrection and the life” or “source of life”. The act of salvation reached its critical mass in the pouring out of the “blood and water” signifying Jesus’ unique death and the inauguration in public of his work of baptism with the Holy Spirit (7).
The coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost was the first successful application of a lesson hard learnt (8).
