"Re: The Purpose of Salvation"
Following up on Josua's message on the need for soul salvation and his
reference to the first fruits site of Lyn Mize, the above two links
contain additional information concerning this important concept.
The SOS link in particular describes a type of the rapture in the OT and
states the pre-tribulation rapture will include all Christians, not
just the Bride. The separation occurs later at the Judgment Seat when
the works for the Lord after spiritual salvation are reviewed and crowns
There are other differences in the beliefs expressed in the above two
sites, which are from Arlen Chitwood, too. But overall, the emphasis is
focused on the true purpose for the new creation, saved man, being to
rule and reign in the Kingdom of our Lord, both in the Millennium and
after in eternity.
Mr Chitwood believes in a strict observance of the types in the OT to
aid in understanding the teachings in the NT. I find the belief that we
are saved for the purpose of ruling and reigning, as substitutes for the
current satanic rulership, to be acceptable and supported by Scripture.
The audio messages are long but worth listening to, if you have the time.
Your brother in Christ,
