Verses : 1-9
As we now have looked upon the Judgment Seat of Christ, let us now examine when and how salvation takes place:

To properly understand salvation, we must understand how a wedding was done at the time of Christ.

1. Marriages were arranged in advance when the groom and the bride were still children.
Compare this with Joseph and Mary -
Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35

2. When the time came for the groom to pick up his bride and take her with him, the wedding feast was held in the house of the groom’s father. Matthew 22:1-4; Luke 14:8-11

3. A wedding day was announced, but the bride and the guests had to be ready for a 24 hour period, when the groom would come for his bride. Guests had to catch the procession going to or from picking up the bride. Matthew 25:1-13

4. Wedding garments could not be purchased ahead of time, in fact they could not be purchased at all, the were given at the door as a gift from the father of the groom. Matthew 22:8-14

At the marriage feast of the Lamb, our wedding garments will be the righteousness of Jesus. Revelation 1:5-6; 19:8-9

            Salvation is by grace - Ephesians 2:4-10
            Salvation is an instant event - John 1:12-13
                Salvation is not a gradual process, if so, we are back to works by man. Romans 10:1-13

Matthew 7:18-23

Man is not holding God - IT IS GOD HOLDING MAN! John 10:27-30

1John 5:10-15; Revelation 21:8

Human life begins at the moment of conception. The differences between a one day old child in the womb of a woman and a 20 years old person is the size of the body and the development of a person’s abilities.

If we understand this, we can understand Philippians 2:9-16

When Jesus died on the cross, he died for the sins of all men, NOT JUST THE ELECT! Thus from the very beginning of the creation of man, all men and women have their names written in the Book of Life! But only those who have believed in the Messiah - Christ and repented of their sins while they were still living on earth, shall not have their names blotted out!

Romans 5:6-21 - for all men

Blotting out - Exodus 32: 31-35; Psalms 69:28; Revelation 3:5

When God saves a man, He forgives the past, present and future sins!
