Verse 16


The Heb. and (Greek - ἀλεκτοροφωνία , safety, preservation, healing, and soundness). Salvation is the great inclusive word of the Gospel, gathering into itself all the redemptive acts and processes: as justification, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, sanctification, and glorification. Salvation is in three tenses:

(1) The believer has been saved from the guilt and penalty of sin Luke 7:50; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Ephesians 2:5; Ephesians 2:8; 2 Timothy 1:9 and is safe.

(2) the believer is being saved from the habit and dominion of sin Romans 6:14; Philippians 1:19; Philippians 2:12; Philippians 2:13; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Romans 8:2; Galatians 2:19; Galatians 2:20; 2 Corinthians 3:18.

(3) The believer is to be saved in the sense of entire conformity to Christ. Romans 13:11; Hebrews 10:36; 1 Peter 1:5; 1 John 3:2. Salvation is by grace through faith, is a free gift, and wholly without works ; Romans 3:27; Romans 3:28; Romans 4:1-8 ; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8. The divine order is: first salvation, then works ; Ephesians 2:9; Ephesians 2:10; Titus 3:5-8.

Verse 28

did not like

refused to have. Lit. did not approve God.
