1 Peter (Program #4) – The Full Salvation of the Triune God and Its Issues (2)

In his epistles the apostle Peter frequently mentions the matter of salvation.   but he does so in a context that somewhat different than how most Christians normally think of salvation.  For example  in chapter 1:5 he say “a salvation ready to be revealed at the last time.”  Of course, our common thought is that salvation was revealed to us when we believed and received Christ as our Savior.  Then in chapter 2:2, Peters says that salvation is something that we grow into.  Once again, the typical thought is that salvation is what we received once for all at the moment we believed.  Well in fact there is a real measure of truth to the salvation that we received when we first expressed our faith in the Lord Jesus.  But, and this is a crucial but,  the salvation that Peter refer to repeatedly in his writings involves much more than just our initial salvation.

Acts (Program #30) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (22)

In Acts 1:5, the Lord told the disciples that they would experience a baptism of the Holy Spirit. This event, occurring exactly 2 times in the New Testament, has been debated, analyzed, promoted, and profoundly misunderstood.  Was it intended only for the ancient disciples? Is it a special experience supplemental to our initial salvation intended for us? Or is it a matter of importance on a scale much larger than just our own personal experience? We will get a very penetrating look today on the life study of the Bible.
