SORT BY Relevancy
Special revelation is a theological term used mainly by evangelical scientists and Christian theologians which refers to the belief that knowledge of God and of spiritual matters can be discovered through supernatural means, such as miracles or the scriptures, a disclosure of God's truth through means other than through man's reason. The distinction between Special and General revelation was first elucidated in-depth by the Catholic systematic theologian St. Thomas Aquinas in his discussion of Revelation. This distinction was only then more widely disseminated by evangelical writers who emphasized its scriptural support (e.g. Psalm 19).
Psalm 19:1-3 (KJV): The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
General revelation is the concept that if one follows the doctrine of the religion in which they were born, then they are saved.
Salvation is made possible by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, which in the context of salvation is referred to as the "atonement". Christian soteriology ranges from exclusive salvation to universal reconciliation concepts. While some of the differences are as widespread as Christianity itself, the overwhelming majority agrees that salvation is made possible by the work of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, dying on the cross.
To the millions perishing around us and for the clearest possible way to make eternal truths heard and known, the reading of William Booth's Salvation Soldiery will herein commence. In God's name, and we know that whatever He attaches His name to has power over every created thing, may this broadcast reach more over the air waves than William Booth ever reached face-to-face with his thousands of marching blood washed troops and may a second Salvation Army arise, put on obedience at any cost to the Master Jesus "that all the people of the earth may know that the Lord is God, and that there is none else" (1 Kings 8:60).

This message focuses on the often misunderstood topic of true salvation.
Now the devil's the great counterfeiter and he'd just as soon send you to hell from the pew as from the gutter.
In fact, I think he'd prefers us to have a form of religion but not a genuine and real salvation through a relationship with The LORD Jesus Christ.
And I believe the curse of our twenty first century is that we have many churches filled with baptized pagans.
Churches full of empty people who've never really been saved.
They may have culture, but they don't have Calvary.
They have ritual, but they don't have reality.
They have form, but they don't have force.
They have religion but they don't have righteousness.
So what we're going to be studying today, is real salvation.
This message is a warning to everyone listening lest you be deceived and miss the whole thing.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17: "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
Today's quote is from Frederick W. Robertson. He said: "Every natural longing has its natural satisfaction. If we thirst, God has created liquids to gratify thirst. If we are susceptible of attachment, there are beings to gratify that love. If we thirst for life and love eternal, it is likely that there are an eternal life and an eternal love to satisfy that craving."
Our topic today is titled "Straw Men and Salvation (Part 1)" from the book, "So Great Salvation: What it Means to Believe in Jesus Christ" by Dr. Charles Ryrie.
Differences of opinion often create straw men. The reason is simple: Straw men are easy to demolish.
According to the dictionary, a straw man is "a weak or imaginary opposition (as an argument or adversary) set up only to be easily refuted."
In the contemporary discussion over the meaning of the Gospel and areas related to it, a number of straw men have been created. In reality these are spurious arguments often raised by proponents of a lordship salvation. Such arguments against those straw men seem more devastating. Realize that a straw man usually is not a total fabrication; it usually contains some truth, but truth that is exaggerated or distorted or incomplete. The truth element in a straw man makes it more difficult to argue against, while the distortion or incompleteness makes it easier to huff and puff and blow the man down.
All the prophets foretold it, but few have known whatthe prophets foretold that the rulers would never tell. If you know the truth, you know that for salvation at last to come, ALL the allegiances to the varied adminstrations of men must be discerned as having been beyond all doubt, OBSOLETE.
Isa 56:9 All you beasts of the field, All you beasts in the forest, Come to eat. 10 Your watchmen are blind, All of them know nothing. All of them are dumb dogs unable to bark, Dreamers lying down, who love to slumber; 11 And the dogs are greedy, they are never satisfied. And they are shepherds who have no understanding; They have all turned to their own way, Each one to his unjust gain, to the last one.
(Isaiah 44:20-46:13, 60:1-63:5, 25:1-3>-10, 11:1-12 .. Rev.16:12-21, 22:16)

A Free Salvation by C. H. Spurgeon
Scripture(s): Isaiah 55:1
Description: Delivered on Friday Afternoon, June 11, 1858 "Yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."—Isaiah 55:1. In this sermon Spurgeon wonderfully offers the Gospel, "without money and without price" to everyone w ho is able to "know enough to know yourself a lost sinner, and Christ a great Saviour." He pleads with poor sinners that no matter how great their sin may be, his mercy is, and always will be, greater. He takes use of many examples of people who try to get into heaven with money, with price. He explains how many people without God spend their days trying not to focus on Eternity, and trying to focus instead on the temporal. He charges the person thus without God to instead dare ponder his own soul's destination, that he will spend forever in Hell until he turns to the cross of Christ. Then he offers a firm and resolute "entreat to believe on the Lord Jesus." Please check out our website @Remnantxradio.com and send me a friend request on facebook!
