No. 0     Original Topic:  Jesus Paid It ALL! Isaiah 53:5

Consider these verses:

[Luk 9:56] "For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them."

[Jhn 10:9] "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved..."

[Eph 2:8] "For it is by grace you have been saved through faith..."

So, I did an etymology study of the word,"Save(ed)". In these verses, and many more, it is the Greek word sozo. Sozo means, forgiveness of sin, healing of diseases, and deliverance from torment. So those same verses could be read as:

[Luk 9:56] "For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to forgive them of sin, heal them of diseases, and deliver them from torment."

[Jhn 10:9] "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be forgiven of sin, healed of diseases, and delivered from torment..."

[Eph 2:8] "For it is by grace you have been forgiven of sin, healed of diseases, and delivered from torment through faith..."

Isaiah 53:5 paints this picture for us:

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities (forgiven of sin).

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him (delivered from torment).

And by His stripes we are healed (healed of diseases).

So, just know... When you accepted Him as Lord and Savior, you accepted ALL of Him! That includes being forgiven of sin, healed of diseases, and delivered from torment! =D

Love this! :thumb_up:

A friend shared the various meanings of being saved before (so I rather knew this, but it is worth refreshing one's mind and maintaining one's focus upon)!

Yes, for certain there is richness in understanding what our salvation means (freedom from torment, 'spiritual' ailments, sin which causes death)...and all to the Glory of the Lord (not ourselves).

Thank you for posting in this forum (I have to remind myself to look around in the other forums more often)! :hug:
