The Moment of Roy's Salvation Experience!
I share my personal experience of becoming eternally saved through the Lord. I was saved as a teenager. I grew up as a Methodist and our church always had youth camp at a Mennonite camp on Pikes Peak. Our minister at the time was a transfer from the Nazarene church. I’m not sure of all the details here but one day he had me and a few others meet with him after the normal activities were over at the camp.
I remember our minister standing in front of me reading scripture from the Bible. He was reading from Roman’s chapter 10. I don’t know where he started, but he came to verse 9 saying:
That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
The pastor stopped and asked me, “Do you believe that? I said, “What do you mean?” He said, “Do you believe God raised Jesus from the dead?” I said, “Yes!” That is when I felt a charge of electricity go through the center of my body. (My spirit had been born again) I felt so alive not understanding what had happened so rather than returning to my bed, I went and climbed this huge rock over looking a town. I sat down in amazement looking at the stars and the lights below me. I wanted to tell the world about Jesus Christ. I had no idea that the Lord had started giving me experiences so I would come to understand how the mechanics of eternal salvation works. I never forgot the “charge like a shock,” even though I didn’t understand significance of it for years to come. I didn’t know the Lord was going to take me to Heaven over this issue.
I had unknowingly fulfilled Matthew 10:32
Whoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before (to) my Father which is in heaven.
(It should be noted that the word before was mistranslated. It should be “to men” as revealed in the other possible translations the translators had a choice of using. The “Vision of Salvation” also reveals this! I have noticed leaving or using the word before in this scripture allows people to think they can just speak their confession out in a room of people and have it work. It doesn’t, it has to be to someone so the Lord can fulfill His covenant promise.)
Moving on: Reading from Romans 10 and asking the question like the pastor did with me would be an excellent way to get a whole believing church saved all at once. I hope you see how easily it could be done by anyone speaking in a meeting.
I have realized the simplest confession a person can say “Yes” to, to become saved and have their spirit born again is, “Do you believe God raised Jesus from the dead?”
It’s a great question to use at water baptisms. You don’t even have to quote scripture to ask it.
