Salvation Is Created
Salvation is created for you! God is love and love needs to give to someone. That's why God made man.
What we have seen and [ourselves] heard we are also telling you, so that you too may realize and enjoy fellowship as partners and partakers with us. And [this] fellowship that we have (which is a distinguishing mark of Christians) is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
1 John 1:3
Dear Reliable Bible Verse Believer.
Mankind is something really special. He is made in the image of God.
We were in Heaven before we came to Earth Psalms 139
Mankind was created to have fellowship with God.
Some people get the idea that God created man so He'd have someone to dominate. But God is not a dominator. God is love and love needs to give to someone. That's why God created mankind.
He made us so He could give us His love.
You and I are much the same way. Let's say, for example, you have a puppy as a pet. You can fellowship with your puppy (We'll call him Baby) just so much.
Sometimes there comes a time when you need to talk to somebody. There comes a time when you need to have communication on your own level. (Although we think Baby is on our level)
The reason you're like that is because you're created in the image of God. Salvation is created! That's how God is. He has a desire to fellowship with someone like Himself.
Believe you're something really special today a one of a kind creation made by God in His very own image.
Scripture Study: Genesis 1:26-31
Occupy Till Jesus Comes
Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
The Bible teaches that as believers, you and I are to occupy until Jesus comes. Salvation is created.
Yet occupy is a military term meaning to hold possession, or control, of conquered troops and territory. If we're to do that effectively, most of us are going to have to change our attitudes. We're going to have to recognize that Jesus has already won the victory. Salvation is created through Him!
That's right. Satan is already defeated. He was whipped at Calvary. God pulled his teeth
What's more, Jesus has given you His very own armor and sword to use to keep that defeated devil in line. You may be a 90-pound weakling on your own, but if you'll put on God's armor, the devil will never know it. He'll run from you just like you were Jesus.
Think about it. What would you do if you were the devil and you came face-to-face with some fellow wearing God's armor and God's helmet with God's weapons in each hand? As long as that fellow only spoke God's words, you would think that must be God inside there!
Don't neglect any of the armor you've been given. Wear it all. Keep the devil on the defensive--and occupy till Jesus comes!

Salvation is created!
By the way...
The word salvation in Hebrews 1:14 is from the Greek word soteria, meaning deliverance, preservation of material, and temporal deliverance. Think about that! God has created vast numbers of gloriously powerful spiritual beings for the express purpose of protecting us and delivering us from the evils of this world.
And remember, according to Psalm 103:20, the Word of God is what puts those angels in action.
So when you're in trouble, don't cower and cry about how awful things are.
Speak the Word! Give your angels something to respond to.
They harken to the voice of His Word.
Then be patient and let them have time to work.
They'll get their job done.
