Don’t you just love the word “all?!” I do!
Before we look into why “all” is such a wonderful word however, I would like to remind you of something so that it is fresh in your thinking while you study this letter.
The Greek words translated as “salvation” or “saved” in the King James Version of the Bible stem from the root word “sozo.”
When you look that word up and study it, it means “To be preserved, to be saved, to be delivered, to be healed, to be protected, to do well and to be whole.”
Salvation is not only the recreation of the human spirit. That is only one part of the entire salvation package Jesus provided for us!
Keeping that in the forefront of our thinking, let’s look at some absolutely marvelous “all” scriptures!
“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
1 Timothy 2:3-4 KJV
It is the WILL of God that ALL people live their lives experiencing the full salvation package! ALL of it!
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,”
Titus 2:11 KJV
According to the cross reference, the Greek text actually reads like this, “The grace of God that brings salvation to ALL men has appeared.”
“as it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, Make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, And every mountain and hill shall be brought low; And the crooked shall be made straight, And the rough ways shall be made smooth; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
Luke 3:4-6 KJV
John was to prepare the way so that ALL flesh could experience the whole salvation package. For what or who did he prepare the way?
“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:10-11 KJV
A Saviour! THE One Who has provided the ENTIRE salvation package!
Jesus has come! He has appeared and He has fulfilled the will of His Father to provide the entire salvation package to ALL men!
So, here’s the million dollar question – why aren’t people experiencing it in their lives?!
Two of the biggest reasons are:
- Each individual part of what grace has brought to every person (the salvation package) requires faith to bring it into manifestation in our lives (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 4:16) and we have not been learning about and releasing our faith in these things
- Neglecting the ministry of our angels
This second reason is where the Lord would have me put us in remembrance and stir ourselves up.
Let’s look at another “all” scripture.
“But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, Until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”
Hebrews 1:13-14 KJV
Wow! Spend a couple minutes right now meditating on the immense vastness and significance of that statement from God!
ALL of the angels have been sent as servants to serve on our behalf, to facilitate the manifestation of our entire salvation package! They are sent to minister FOR the recipients of the salvation package!
Bless God, that’s ALL of us!
If you’ll remember though, the angels have always been involved with this. Go back and read Psalm 91 and notice the role the angels play in God “showing us His salvation!”
This is why Paul wrote in Hebrews 2:3, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation.” He didn’t change subjects. He’s still talking about the ministry of angels he told us about a mere 4 verses earlier!
Unfortunately, in my opinion, we HAVE neglected the ministry of our angels to a great degree. We must correct this! We need to put our angels to work to facilitate each and every part of our salvation package today!
Let’s give the faith command right now! Say this in faith,
“Ministering spirits, I am an heir of salvation and I am not neglecting this part of my salvation any longer! I speak to you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, THE Lord of Hosts, and I command you to go right now and bring every part of my salvation package into manifestation! I expect ongoing deliverance and protection. I expect good health. I expect financial abundance and wholeness and I expect you to do your job! Amen!”
Glory to God! Put your angels to work continually! They never get tired and can work while you are sleeping!
