Salvation is the exit from the worldly sufferings and evil.. while resurrection is the entry into the Kingdom of God.. Salvation is death of our sinful life on the cross.. while Resurrection is our& spiritual rebirth which comes by the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.. Salvation and resurrection of two sides of the cross.. they are incomplete without each other.. our life is complete when both are accomplished..
Luke 19:9Jesus said to him, Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;
With Baptism.. we started our journey of Salvation which leads (transforms) to the resurrection.. but as we start walking in the paths of our daily earthlylife.. we are so engrossed and entangled by our daily needs and necessities that we forget about salvation and resurrection.. and we start running our own emotions, feelings and weeknesses.. we forget to realize the path of Salvation.. we don't realize the existence of our resurrected life in the Kingdom of God..
Initially when I read the Book of Revelation.. I was more worried about the destruction that was coming upon the evil.. and used to wonder what will happen to me.. but slowly as I started to realize the goodness of the New Earth and the Kingdom of God.. it does not seem to be so difficult to let go this life which is so full of evil and sufferings.. and hold on to the new life.. in the Kingdom of Heaven.. where peace and goodness reigns forever..
Yeah great food for thought !
So many people are living their lives in the past and can not release themselves from the former things and live their lives in the newness of Christ and in the new earth and kingdom as you said ,what I was before don't matter old things are pasted away and all is new because the Key is what we was a unbelieving plan and simple .
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
It is the lack of faith in Christ Jesus that is the problem because they don't believe that they can be made whole in a moment in a tweaking of a eye !
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Be forever blessed
