The Election is Salvation

Time for christian's to understand what 'Salvation' is:
It's being delivered from corruption, "Spirit, Soul and Body" - I Thess 5:23
Looking at II Peter 1: 1-11

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Thus, I Cor 15:50 heralds, "Flesh and Blood (The Corruptible) shall NOT inherit the Kingdom of God" -
It must be transfigured from Mortal to Immortal.

Those that do are, "THE ELECT" - for they made their "Calling and Election Sure".
Those that don't are the "Five Foolish Virgins" of Matthew 25:1-13
cloth yourself in the goodness of virtue and you will not go without, eh?

surely, the hungry soul may simply lack the good wealth of the inner spirit, as some might say. or, they need justice against people that put them in the dust.

well, godspeed to you all,

Nobody has given anything that says election is salvation except for the title....One is chosen but they still have to receive the salvation...The Jews were the elected people but they still had to receive God as their God and obey His Word....We have to receive Jesus as our Savior and obey His Word.... The entire bible is my reference....Both verses and precedent.
