Important scriptures relating to Salvation, Assurance, Obedience, and Peace

important scripturesSeveral years ago a friend of mine in Africa sent me a list of scriptures relating to the topics above – salvation, assurance, obedience, and peace. Today I am going to share the first four. I post these in an effort to get people focused on the gospel and the relationship we have in Christ. The first is the most famous.

Obedience and peace

John 3: 16 – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Rom. 3:10 – “As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.”

Rom. 3:23 – “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Rom. 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.”

Obedience and peace

The scriptures above speak of a relationship that is broken (because of sin), but can be restored through the gift. We go from the wages (well earned, well deserved wages of sin), to the gift (freely given, never earned, not deserved.) That is quite a contrast – earned vs. given, wages vs. gift, sin vs. grace. Oh how we need that grace, and how freely it is given.

Day 85 of 100 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus – “cut off” at the perfect time

The full title is this “Be “cut off” at a specific time after Jerusalem wall rebuilt before the temple was destroyed” This is about God’s perfect timing for Jesus to come.  

at the perfect time

               God’s timing is perfect

Dan. 9:24-26 – Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place. 25“So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. 26“Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.

Zech. 9:9 – Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your King comes to you, righteous and victorious, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Mat. 21:1-5 – When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me. 3“If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.” 4This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: 5“SAY TO THE DAUGHTER OF ZION, ‘BEHOLD YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU, GENTLE, AND MOUNTED ON A DONKEY, EVEN ON A COLT, THE FOAL OF A BEAST OF BURDEN.’”

Mat. 24:1-2 – Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him. 2And He said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”

Mark 1:15 – and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

John 12:13-15 – took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout, “Hosanna! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, even the King of Israel.” 14Jesus, finding a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written, 15“FEAR NOT, DAUGHTER OF ZION; BEHOLD, YOUR KING IS COMING, SEATED ON A DONKEY’S COLT.”

numbered Numbered with the transgressors

Is. 53:12 – Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.

Mat. 27:38 – At that time two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.


Mark 15:27-28 –  They *crucified two robbers with Him, one on His right and one on His left. 28  And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with transgressors.”


Luke 22:37 –  For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, ‘And He was numbered with transgressors’; for that which refers to Me has its fulfillment.”


Luke 23:32-33 – Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him. 33 When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.

Day 82 of 100 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus – Made into an offering for sin

an offering for sin

                                            open bible

Is. 53:10-11 – But the Lord was pleased
To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring,
He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand. 11 As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities.

Acts 10:43 – Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.

Acts 13:38-39 – Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, 39 and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.

Rom. 3:21-26 –  But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; 26 for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Rom. 4:5-8 – But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness, 6 just as David also speaks of the blessing on the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works: 7 “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, And whose sins have been covered. 8 “Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will not take into account.”

Eph. 1:7 – In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace

1 Pet. 2:21-25 –  For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, 22 who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; 23  and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. 25 For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.

1 John 2:2 – and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

Jesus was made into an offering for sin. Only the spotless lamb of God could qualify for that.
