God’s Salvation by Ken Wimer

God’s Salvation

“Moreover whom HE did predestinate, them HE also called:

and whom HE called, them HE also justified:

and whom HE justified, them HE also glorified.”

(Rom. 8:30)

What a blessed privilege it is to be a child of God! Let the world glory in tracing its roots to some rich and famous ancestor but there is no one more honored than God’s child in learning that he or she has Christ as their Elder Brother! Yet, how can it be that sinners should enjoy such a glorious benefit? The entire portion from Romans 8:28-34 gives us the complete picture of God’s salvation from beginning to end.

1.) God’s salvation is according to HIS PURPOSE (Romans 8:28): The word ‘purpose’ indicates a setting out by design beforehand, much like the shewbread in the tabernacle set out in order on the table. God’s children are THE CALLED [named, appointed and selected for salvation] according to God’s sovereign, unchanging will.

2.) God’s salvation is by the PERSON and WORK of Jesus Christ alone (Romans 8:29): “Whom He did foreknow [foreordain], he also did predestinate [appoint beforehand], to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” The firstborn child in Mid-Eastern culture is the heir and has the position of authority as executor of the father’s estate. The predestinating, calling, justifying and glorifying of sinners by God the Father is because Christ is the FIRSTBORN in authority and power. He is the Heir, Hebrews 1:1-4. Therefore, as the One in Whose Hand the Father put every chosen sinner, it was necessary that He come and lay down His life for them, “For where a testament [will] is, there must also OF NECESSITY be the death of the testator.” (Hebrews 9:6)

3.) God’s Salvation is for sinners named in His electing grace (Romans 8:30) The word ‘called’ in v. 30, is different in the Greek language than ‘called’ in v. 28. There it means ‘to name or appoint one to a position or office,’ as in ‘electing to’. In v. 30 it means ‘to name someone’, as you would name a child and CALL him ‘John,’ or ‘Joe.’ Those that the Father appointed to salvation before the foundation of the world, He called or named with the very name of His Son. Just as the High Priests who bore the names on their breastplate going into the Holy of Holies, Christ came to earth as the High Priest of those that the Father appointed to salvation and each of the elect was named [called] in Him: “…Whom He called [named], them He also justified.”

4.) God’s salvation is by the GLORIFICATION of the LORD Jesus Christ (Romans 8:30)“Whom he justified, them he also glorified.” When was Christ glorified? When He rose from the grave and ascended on high, v. 34. And are not all those that He redeemed and the Father justified by His death, all simultaneously glorified with Him and seated in the heavens with Him? Ephesians 2:6. He sat down because His work was finished, Hebrews 1:3. All His elect are now seated there with Him, glorified in their Substitute and Representative, Philippians 2:8-11.

The conclusion is that every sinner for whom Christ paid their sin debt is now conformed to the image of Christ, Romans 8:29-34. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because AS HE IS, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17) Those who are His by electing and redeeming grace are complete in Him, completely conformed to His image by God’s imputed righteousness. “And ye are complete in him.” (Col. 2:10)
