The Captain Of Our Salvation: Be Of Good Cheer I Am With You!

Illustration-Title-The Captain Of Our Salvation-flashcards-text-logo

Welcome to The Captain Of Our Salvation Flashcards

The Captain of our salvation is interceding for His people. He is not a petitioner moving the Father’s compassion, but a conqueror, who claims the trophies of His victory.

Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25.

His offering is complete. As our Intercessor Christ executes His self-appointed work. He is holding before God the censer containing His own spotless merits and the prayers, confessions, and thanksgiving of His people.

The offering is wholly acceptable and pardon covers all transgression.

The great Captain of our salvation has conquered in our behalf, that through Him we might conquer, if we would, in our own behalf.

Nevertheless, Christ saves none against their choice. He compels none to obedience.

Jesus made the infinite sacrifice that His followers might overcome in His name and His righteousness be imputed unto them.

In order to be saved you must accept the yoke of Christ and lay off the yoke which you have fashioned for your neck.

The victory that Jesus gained in the wilderness is a pledge to you of the victory that you may gain through His name.

[q] Question:

What will the wicked do and say?

[a] Answer: Revelation 6:15-16; Isaiah 2:18-21

The kings of the earth, great and rich men, chief captains, mighty and bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb;

The idols he shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.


In conclusion

The Captain of our salvation leads His people on step by step. He is purifying and fitting them for translation. He has said for our encouragement:

Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Matthew 28:20.

Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33.

Christ will lead us on to a victory over sin. What God promises, He is able at any time to perform.

The spirit, wisdom, and goodness of God, revealed in His word, are to be exemplified by the disciples of Christ. Thus they are condemning the world.

Moreover, He is leaving in the rear those who are disposed to draw off from the body, who are not willing to be led, and are satisfied with their own righteousness. 

If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:23.

No greater delusion can deceive the human mind than that which leads men to indulge a self-confident spirit.

Moreover, to believe that they are right and in the light, when they are drawing away from God’s people, and their cherished light is darkness.
