Scriptural Declarations of Salvation for Loved Ones

My brother was brought up with Christian values but he has since turned its back on those things that gave him life as a child. He is currently lost and I have been praying for his salvation for a while now. He may be labelled the black sheep of the family but I know with God’s mercy and pardon for his sins, it is only a matter of time before he gives his life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

I believe declarations of faith over this situation with prayers for his life will bring about the desired change. I believe that the more I declare the word of God concerning salvation over my brother’s body, soul, spirit and mind, the more my faith grows in the belief that God will save him.

I know that God does not want the death of sinners nor does he want them to go to hell or die in their sins. I am trusting God that like the prodigal son in the Bible (Luke 15:11-32) who lost his ways but traced his steps back to his father, I believe my brother will come back to Christ and accept him as his lord and saviour, I am trusting God to bring my brother home to him.

You may be in the same situation as me, been grieved over the salvation of your loved ones. You may have preached to them, shared the good news of Jesus Christ to them and perhaps prayed for them several times but you keep hitting hard rocks, do not give up on them. Let these declarations of faith take root in your heart to build up your faith as you believe God for them. You cannot save them but God can save them, therefore, allow the wind of God to carry these holy words of God that speak over them to reach them, to bring about the change of heart and transform their lives for the best.

Assurance of Salvation Scriptural Declarations

There are moments in a Christian life when doubts set in and he needs an assurance of his salvation. Soon after he became a Christian in college, author C S Sprout wrote a book titled; Can I lose my salvation? he shared his experience where he was advised by an elderly woman to “drive a spiritual stake in the ground right now.” He needed to make sure his conversion was forever. You may not have received a sound advice like C S Sprout when you accepted Christ as your Lord and saviour but as time goes by, you may find life happen and you begin to wonder and ask yourself some serious questions; Am I a Christian? Is my salvation real?

Whenever you experience such fiery dart of the enemy, it is best to nip it in the bud before it grows out of hands. Whenever you begin to wonder whether your salvation is real and genuine, whether you are still in faith, still on the Christian journey, whether you have completely backslidden or whether you were even saved at all, be assured that you are under an attack and you may have opened the door for such fiery darts from the devil and his cohorts.

You might be at that stage where you are feeling guilty, fearful, doubtful and condemned by your actions, wondering as you wander in life, am I saved? How can I say that I am saved when I gave up on Jesus under pressure? How can I say that I am saved when I sold out for pleasure whilst under pressure instead of guarding my soul? My saint has been tampered with what now can I do?

Whenever you get to this stage of doubt in your faith, know that you are under an attack of the enemy against your faith in God. You may even be at the brink of backsliding and like Peter who denied Jesus three times in order to save his face, you too may have denied Christ at some stage in your Christian journey.

In that time when the enemy has sown the seeds of doubts and unbelief, in that time when you want to do the right thing but you find yourself doing the wrong things. In that time when you are fearful and doubtful of your belief in God and your true salvation. In that time of struggle with your salvation, in that time when you question your belief and faith in God, make a declaration of faith out loud.

Declaration of faith
Whatever you say often gets rooted in your heart. Continue to confess your faith and you will see a turn around in your belief.

I am saved by grace through Jesus Christ. Not by might nor by my power was I saved dbut by the grace of God. I believe with my heart that I am saved. God said it, I believe it and so it is.
……………………………………………………………………..

The Spirit of God bears witness with my spirit that I am saved and I have become a child of God.

……………………………………………………………………..
I am a new man in Christ Jesus, old things have passed away and all things have become new.
……………………………………………………………………..
I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate me from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus my Lord.
……………………………………………………………………..
I call on the name of Jesus and I am saved!
……………………………………………………………………..

Scriptures
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
……………………………………………………………………..
The spirit itself BEARETH WITNESS with my spirit, that we are the children of God” (Romans 8:16).
…………………………………………………………………….
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Nothing can separate a child of God from their Father.Romans 8:38-39

Let us also be secure in knowing that “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” Romans 10:13.

7 Critical Things Jesus Did Just For You

Jesus did not go through agonising pain on the cross for no reason. He did not suffer rejection in the hands of those he cared for and loved for no just cause. His betrayal by the most trusted disciple was no child’s play. Jesus did it all for a reason in the season. He went through it all so that you might have abundant life.

Like a criminal he was harshly treated, beaten, spat upon, stripped naked, pierced, whipped with seventy lashes, condemned to death on the cross, so that you could be redeemed from the harsh consequences of sin and just so that you do not have to go through the same injustice he suffered on earth.

Jesus was pierced for your rebellion(transgression) – Adam and Eve surrendered their will to be tempted of the devil and thereby introduced sin to the world.(Romans 5:12) making us all sinners (Romans 3:23), even from our mothers womb (Psalm 51:5). Since the eyes of the Lord cannot see evil(Habakkuk 1:13) and He want to redeem mankind from sin (Titus 2:14), He gave his only begotten son (John 3:16), Jesus Christ to take away the sin of the world (John 1:29). So Jesus was beaten and tortured for your transgressions so that salvation might be made available to everyone, and in all of his sufferings he didn’t say a word.

Jesus carried your sicknesses and pains – Jesus took upon himself our infirmities and carried away our diseases (Matthew 8:17), so that we might be made whole (John 5:6). God intends for his children to live a healthy life just as a father would suffer for his children so that they do not have to go through the same suffering. Jesus was beaten up, crushed for the sins of many not because he brought it upon himself nor because he deserved the beaten, but because God ordained Christ to carry the sicknesses and diseases of sinners that they might partake of the healing process once they come into salvation the prophesy might be fulfilled (Matthew 8:17)(Hebrews 6:4), his body was broken for you and by his stripes, you were healed(1Cor.11:23,24).

Jesus was poor for your sake – He was looked down on and passed over because he took upon himself your poverty so that you might be rich in the spirit (2 Corinthians 8:9). He was meek and lowly (Mathew 11:29) so that you might inherit the kingdom (Matthew 5:3). Jesus died without a thought for his own welfare, just so that you might be a partaker of the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus was beaten bloody for the sins of the people – His body was broken and his blood was shed to make you a child of God (Matthew 26:28). The beatings made him unattractive. People looked on him and turned away because they thought he was a scum. The truth is, it was your ugliness and wickedness (our sins) he carried that disfigured him and made him unwanted in the society and through his bruises we get healed.

Jesus grieves over your sins – We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong on him. Jesus is the good shepherd, the good shepherd will never allow his sheep to go astray and if any of the sheep goes astray, he leaves the ninety-nine behind to search for the lost sheep (Luke 15:1-7) and bring him back into the fold. Jesus looks out for everybody that his father put in his care except for the stubborn sons of perdition (John 17:12) accounts for everybod Jesus took the punishment of sins of the world, and that made us whole. He was grieved for the sins of the world, he was sorrowful for the lost soul (Hebrews 5:5-8)

Jesus died for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2) – Jesus died for the sins of the world. He laid down his life as a sacrifice to atone for your sins and my sins (1 John 3:16) (John 15:13) (John 10:18). There would have been bloodshed and eternal damnation had Christ not laid down his life for the payment of our sins. He loves us so much he was willing to pay the sacrifice for the atonement of our sins.

Jesus was buried with the wicked that you might rise up with him in righteousness – They threw him in a grave with a rich man, even though he’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true. This was done so that we might rise up with him in righteousness at the end of time (1 Thessalonians 4:17)

Now, it’s up to you. Do you own your weaknesses and sorrows? Do you want to continue in your ways as though you’re okay, as though his death means nothing, and as though eternity doesn’t hang in the balance? You can confess your rebellion and sins, and trust him to forgive you, make you whole. PRAYER OF SALVATION
