when do you receive the forgiveness of Sin? or when can you receive the Holy Spirit? What is the Plan of SALVATION?

Jack Wellman March 5, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Hello Richard. Thank you for visiting us and for your questions, which all three are good ones.

The Plan of Salvation is fully a plan and work of God alone. The only thing we bring to God are empty hands and a heart full of sin. First of all, God sends us His Holy Spirit, God the Holy Spirit shows us that we are sinners and in need of saving. The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin and need of a Savior. The Holy Spirit regenerates the human heart to see Who that Savior is and that Savior of course is Jesus. We then repent (turn away) from our sins, confess our sins to God, we profess our faith being placed in Jesus Christ, we place this trust in His saving ability and believe Him (believe which is an old English word means to be living in) then He is just and faithful to forgive us of our sins (1 John 1:9) and He cleanses us from all our unrighteousness. That is the plan of salvation.

We receive the Holy Spirit first so we can know we are sinners and need Christ as Savior, then we follow the above Plan of Salvation, and then we are forgiven of our sins. Does this make it clear Richard? If not, please let us know and perhaps I can help you more thoroughly. If you have come to saving faith today (Rom 10:9-13) through Jesus Christ alone (Acts 4:12, Acts 16:30-31), then PLEASE let us know so that we can rejoice with you Richard.

Once I heard RC Sproul state that today we have the greatest misunderstanding of salvation since the beginning of the Reformation 500 years ago.
Tracey obviously does not have that misunderstanding. Great explanation! Keep up the good work.

Thank you S. Dwight Miller. You are so right. There is the easy “believe-ism” today where you just “accept Jesus” or “let Him into your heart” but there is no true regeneration. R.C. Sproul is among my favorite teachers and Bible scholars. His Reformation Study Bible is one that I highly recommend. You are so right…Tracey did an excellent job on this article and I thank you for your spot on the mark truthful statement about misunderstandings of salvation. You are so very right. Please come back again soon when you can. Thank you.

I really like this. I’m 14 and I am trying my best to grow in my faith and learn to share my faith with other people. I think there are a lot of benefits of Salvation. He get to live forever with our Lord and we won’t have now worries, no pain, no sorrow, nor tears. He forgives of our sins. I’m so happy that I have Spirt in me and I hope that the people who read this want to learn more about it and accept God and there Savior and redeemer.

What are some natural benefits of salvation to live in this world but not of it. Is smoking a sin? I see Catholic priest smoke and drink.

Jack Wellman June 8, 2019 at 6:39 pm

Hello Izenna. Jesus said it is what comes out of the mouth that defiles the person and not what goes into the mouth. Even though it may be a bad witness, this does not mean they are not believers and these things are not the unpardonable sin. Some people don’t believe these things are sin, and so for them, it is not sin…but we can’t make that judgment unless it is adultery, sexual immorality, public drunkness, and so on.
