Jesus Rescues His Own

Jesus Rescues His Own: … and to wait for his Son whom he raised from the dead to come back from heaven. This Jesus is the one who rescues us from the coming wrath. (1 The 1:10)

God has not destined us to wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 The 5:9)

God has promised that his faithful will be rescued from this horrible trial of the wrath of the Lord’s Day, which, as 2 Peter 3:10 says … But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with rushing sound, and having burned the elements will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be burned up.

Dan 12:1 … And at that time, Michael shall stand up, the great ruler who stands for the sons of your people. And there shall be a time of distress, such as has not been from the existence of a nation until that time. And at that time, your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the Book. – מָלַט mâlaṭ, Strong’s H4422: to slip away, escape, deliver, save, be delivered.

… and to wait for his Son whom he raised from the dead to come back from heaven. This Jesus is the one who rescues us from the coming wrath. (1 The 1:10) Rescue: ῥύομαι rhyomai G 4506: to draw to one’s self, to rescue, to deliver. – God’s wrath meets this world, but Jesus saves everyone whose name is written in the Book. The book refers to the Book of Life.

Rev 3:10 [to the church in Philadelphia] Because you have kept my command to endure, I will keep you from the hour of testing that is coming to the whole world to test those living on the earth.

Rom 5:9 Now that we have been justified by his blood, how much more will we be saved from wrath through him! [Christ].

Gen 19:15 And when the dawn rose, then the angels urged Lot, saying, rise up, take your wife and your two daughters who are present, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city. … 19:22 Hurry, escape there, for I am not able to do anything until you have come there. So the name of the city was called Zoar. 19:24 And Jehovah rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from Jehovah out of the heavens. – In this familiar story, God had decided to destroy Sodom because it was full of sin. However, the Lord waited for Lot and his family to escape from the city. If God waited in the Old Testament’s time that Lot’s family reached safety, then today it is a matter of a lot more people because in the Bible Christ promises to rescue his own. After all, every born-again is protected by the seal of God.
