[1] BIBLICAL “Salvation is of the Lord”. [2] Salvation is necessary because God’s “Holiness”, “Justice”, and “Truthdemands PAYMENT FOR SIN. [3] God’s “Grace”, His “Love”, and His “Mercyprovided that “PAYMENT” (Christ’s “sacrifice on Calvary – i.e. the blood atonement).

 

[4] The plan of Salvation was conceived of and derived by God to meet the demands of His “Holiness” and “Justice”. [5] Salvation was initiated by God because man (on his own) sees no “need” for Salvation, and does not know how to accomplish it. [6] The “work” of Salvation was accomplished by God (ONLY), because “they that are in the flesh cannot please God” {There is NOTHING that any man can do (in the flesh) that can satisfy God’s demand for the PAYMENT OF SIN. NO man (who has ever lived) could meet the just requirements that God demands for the “PAYMENT OF SIN”. That is why the Lord Jesus Christ came and died in our place.}
