SALVATION TESTIMONIES – WHAT ARE THEY?

SALVATION TESTIMONIES – WHAT ARE THEY?

 

By: Norm Rasmussen
My Salvation Testimony


Many people don’t know what salvation testimonies are. Allow me to EXPLAIN what salvation testimonies are. They are true life-changing spiritual experiences with God and people, brought about by the work of the Holy Spirit.

Who is the Holy Spirit you might ask? The Holy Spirit is One of the three persons of the eternal triune Godhead, as the Holy Bible speaks of:

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one. (1 John 5:7 NKJV)

There is only one almighty, all powerful God, who always was and always will be … yet He consists of three distinct persons. Each has a personality of their own, yet they function in complete harmony in everything they think, say, and do.

The Bible tells us that the Holy Spirit is the person of the triune godhead who draws people to have a personal spiritual and emotional relationship with the Word and to the Father. The Word was sent from heaven to earth to live as a man for 33 years before dying on a cross and then going back to heaven when He came back from the dead. (You can learn more about the Word … also called Jesus Christ, and the Son of God … by clicking on the following link: John Chapter 1, verses 1-18).

Salvation is the word or term used in the Bible for people who have been saved from having to pay the penalty for their sins against God and others on the Judgment Day. Salvation means the same thing as “being saved.” If a person claims to be “Saved”, they are saying that they believe they are saved from having to pay for all their sins against God and others by not going to hell for eternity to pay for them.

The Bible teaches that the Word … or Jesus Christ or the Son of God … purposely came down from heaven to earth to be a mere man so that He could be tempted to sin like everyone else ever has or ever will be tempted to sin, yet never sinned once. And because He never sinned once, that qualified Him to be the only person who would meet God’s demands to take the punishment for the sins of everyone else who has ever lived on this planet.

How a person acquires salvation – or forgiveness for their sins to be qualified to claim they are “Saved from their sins” – is done simply by asking Jesus Christ to forgive them of all their sins and believe they are forgiven by Him, the Father and the Holy Spirit before they die. The reason they do this is because they believe what the Bible says regarding the Judgment Day. They don’t want their sins held against them on the Judgment Day and be sentenced to hell for eternity to have to pay the price for committing them as the Bible says they will have to do, and the only way the Bible assures them that they WON’T have to pay for their sins is accepting God’s gift of FREE PARDON for them BEFORE they die and have to face God. (You can read about that by clicking on the following link: http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/JesusDidIt.htm).

When people share their personal stories of how they entered into Salvation (receiving free forgiveness) with Jesus Christ, they can be very dramatic sometimes. Other times not so dramatic. No two salvation experiences are exactly the same. As a person shares their Salvation story – their Salvation testimony – they normally share about what life was like BEFORE this Salvation event happened which usually involves how they perceived God prior to this event: Then they share the pertinent details of the Salvation event itself – how it came about, in other words: Then they share how their life has changed for the better AFTER the Salvation event occurred.

Someone sharing their Salvation testimony can also be considered to be sharing their Born Again testimony. The need for a person to become “born again” or “spiritually born again” [same thing] is spoken of in the third chapter in the Book of John in the Bible. You can read about it if you would like by clicking on the following link:  John Chapter 3

The reader – YOU – are highly encouraged to enter into Salvation before you die as well. Because none of us know when we’ll die, you are encouraged to enter into Salvation as quickly as possible, to have your sins against God and others forgiven as soon as possible. Why take the risk of dying unexpectedly and having to stand before God and be judged for your sins?
