Baptism saves by the request to God for a good conscience, having faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Baptism does not remove the filth of the flesh. (1 Peter 3:21, 22)

The living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all. (Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6) However, there is a sacred secret that not everyone will fall asleep in death. When the last trumpet sounds, the dead will be raised and changed in the blink of an eye, receiving immortality. Death will be "swallowed up forever". (1 Corinthians 15:51-56)


Faith, [Greek]: πίστις (pistis), is the assured expectation of what is hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not seen. For by means of it, the men of ancient times had witness borne to them. By faith we perceive that the systems of things were put in order by God’s word, so that what is seen has come into existence from things that are not visible. - Hebrews 11:1-3


Jehovah-jireh, Lit: "Jehovah sees", was the name given to the spot on Mount Moriah where Abraham was about to offer up Isaac as a sacrificial offering, until he was interceded by an angel. (Genesis 22:14) [1]


Lucifer is the King James Version's rendering of the Hebrew word heylel (hā·lāl'), meaning "light-bearer", "shining one", or "morning star" in Isaiah 14:12.[2] The prophet Isaiah uses this expression to identify the King of Babylon,[ TWOT, 499a ] or Babylonian kings as a whole, in a proverb against the Babylonian Empire. (Isaiah 14:4,22) The taunts, "How art thou fallen from heaven" and "how art thou cut down to the ground" may be references to Nimrod's failed attempt to raise the Tower of Babel to the heavens.

Some Christian exegeses of Isaiah 14 have attempted to associate Lucifer with Satan, however there is no Hebrew or Greek scriptural support. Although the Hebrew word heylel is a masculine noun, it is indeterminable to be used as a proper noun, so as to translate it as a personal name.



Salvation is obtained by believing in the Lord Jesus, (Acts 16:30b, 31) through baptism, (1 Peter 3:21, 22) and by publicly declaring that Jesus is Lord, while exercising faith that God raised him up from the dead. (Romans 10:9, 10) Salvation is not guaranteed for those willfully practicing sin, for them, there will no longer be any sacrifice for sins left. A judgment and a burning indignation will consume those in opposition who have disregard and trampled on the Son of God. (Hebrews 10:26-31) It will be a judicial punishment of everlasting destruction. (2 Thessalonians 1)
