THE TRUTH IS — The major question evading Theology is now, and has been for centuries, that of “how to get saved.” Well, there is this major theory – “What you must Do” list; then 2ndly, “What you must Know,” then 3rdly, “What you must KNOW & DO, as both are required.” Now, 4thly, there is this Theology, in which is clearly defined in the K.J.T. as “What Jesus has already completed,” guaranteeing Eternal Salvation, and satisfying His Father’s Will with shed Blood and Death.
Now, we come to the TRUTH. So of the innumerable host of His Family, the vast majority do not realize that Jesus’ Redeeming us was in a Contract (Covenant) before the World began. Yet, only a few (Remnant) know this very point. So the Majority of His Children are going about trying “to do” what is an already finished job, yet they don’t know this, for they have been mis-taught, because their “Seminary” instructors has mis-taught them. Read-Isaiah 9:16; Jer. 50:6. So, this “knowledge” of knowing brings us to “Rightly Dividing” the Word of Truth into the TWO different Salvations (Deliverances).
First, it was DONE by Jesus, and not by you. This is not a “Partnership” of You and Him. He is active, and you are passive. Second, to “KNOW THIS” is a Salvation in itself, and puts you at “Peace.” Now read what Jesus said – John 16:33 – “These things I have spoken unto you, that “in me” ye shall have peace. This “IN ME” does not mean Him plus something else. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” So it is ALL in KNOWING Jesus DID IT ALL – Eph. 2:8-9-10.
