Daily Bible Nugget #517, 2 Corinthians 6:2

The Nugget:

2Co 6:2  (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) (KJV)

2Co 6:2 In the Scriptures God says, “When the time came, I listened to you, and when you needed help, I came to save you.” That time has come. This is the day for you to be saved. (CEV)

My Comment:

In the light of eternity, the most important thing you can do today is make sure you are truly saved, that you are rightly related to Jesus Christ because you have personally for yourself placed your faith in Him alone for salvation and eternal life.

Nothing else in this world matters more than this!

Many years ago I read a leaflet with the title, “Which Church Saves?” The Bible answer to this question is that no church saves. Any church or religious organization which claims to be the one true faith is a false religion. Salvation does not come through joining a church or being a member of a particular religious group. Only continuing faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior meets the requirements to receive eternal life.

I learned this truth in 1953 as a result of reading and re-reading the New Testament. You can come to true faith in Jesus Christ the same way I did. Read the New Testament for yourself repeatedly and you will learn the truth. You will not only learn the truth, but you will personally experience the truth.

2 Corinthians 6:2 is one of the key verses I suggest for careful study in the article I posted here about the “Hidden Features of the Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury” last October 23, 2018 (http://www.realbiblestudy.com/?p=2809). This post today is a continuation of the series begun then. The cross references to the verse, 2 Corinthians 6:2, make for a very important and life-changing study. Here are those cross references:

Another “hidden feature” not on my original list of “hidden features” is a note I placed in my first Bible study tool, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, but left out of my second Bible study tool, Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible, and retained in my third Bible study tool, The Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury, is the following Note, titled in the Subject Index, “Salvation, plan of,” Ezekiel 33:16 note:

Ezekiel 33:16

Eze 33:16  None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

None of his sins. Since the unsaved will go to hell to suffer eternal punishment (+*Eze 18:4 note, Eze 18:20 note; +Mat 25:46), while the saved upon death go immediately to be with Christ (+2Co 5:8, +Php 1:23); since the unsaved will experience eternal torment (Luk 16:24), while the saved experience eternal life (Joh 11:25, 26, +*Rev 14:13), there is no middle ground (**Joh 3:36). The sins of the saved person “shall not be mentioned unto him” (+*Eze 18:22), for Christ died for our sins (**2Co 5:15; **2Co 5:17; **2Co 5:21), forever purged our sins by his shed blood (Eph 1:7, Rev 1:5) by the forever complete and perfect sacrifice of himself just once (Heb 10:10, 11, 12) on the cross (1Pe 2:24). In Christ we are a new creature (*2Co 5:17), justified by faith (Rom 5:1), no longer under condemnation (Joh 3:18; Joh 5:24, Rom 8:1), possessing the righteousness of Christ (Php 3:9), ready to be presented faultless before God (Jud 1:24), on the basis of our placing faith in his finished work for us (Eph 2:8, 9, 10). +*Eze 18:22, Psa 79:8, *Isa 1:18; *Isa 43:25; *Isa 44:22, **Mic 7:18; **Mic 7:19, Rom 4:7; Rom 5:16; Rom 5:21, Heb 8:12, +*1Jn 2:1, 2, 3.

he hath done. Deut 6:18.

shall surely live. Eze 18:17, +*Lev 18:5 note.
