“God’s Mercy” —> NOTHING else for SALVATION (Verse in Image too).
Ultimate Proof Verses?
“He Saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to HIS MERCY, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,” – apostle Paul (Titus 3:5, NASB)
“So then IT [God’s Election or God’s Chosen: Context, Romans 9:11] does NOT depend on the man who WILLS [e.g. ‘our faith’] or the man who RUNS [e.g. ‘our works of the Law – good works’] , but on God Who has MERCY.” – apostle Paul (again, in Romans 9:16, NASB)
Our faith and our works gives Justification unto REWARDS (not Salvation) —> Verses: James 2:24 with James 2:18 – 26, Galatians 3:10, Romans 3:20, Romans 3:28, Galatians 2:16, Romans 2:6, Matthew 16:27, Job 34:11, Revelation 22:12 —> where one becomes ‘least’ or ‘greatest’ in His Kingdom accordingly (Matthew 5:19).
Conclusion – This is OUR FAITH according to Holy Scripture (ALL of it, not choosing some and ignoring the rest):
“Knowing that a man is NOT JUSTIFIED [unto Salvation] by the WORKS of the LAW, but by the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST, even WE have BELIEVED in JESUS CHRIST, that WE might be JUSTIFIED [unto Salvation] by the FAITH OF CHRIST, and NOT by the WORKS of the LAW: for by the WORKS of the LAW shall NO flesh be JUSTIFIED [unto Salvation]” – apostle Paul (apostle of the Gentiles, Galatians 2:16, KJV).
Isn’t it Self-Explanatory in the Majestic Verse above?
