What God Does For Us at the Moment of Faith/Trust/Belief

1. God rescues us from the kingdom of darkness and makes us alive in Christ (Colossians 1:13; Ephesians 2:5; Romans 6:10; John 3:3-16; Second Corinthians 5:17).

2. God raises us up and seats us in Christ, at the right hand of the Father (Psalms 110:1; Mt 22:44; Acts 2:34, 7:55; Eph 1:1, 3-4, 6, 9, 11-13, 20), where as our High Priest, He continually intercedes for us (Job 16:19-21; Romans 8:26-27, 34; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 2:1).

3. God unites us with Himself in Christ (John 6:56, 17:20-23; Romans 7:4, 12:5; Ephesians 4:25, 5:30).

4. God seals us with His Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Cor 1:21-22), and baptizes us in, by, and with the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16; John 1:33; Acts 1:5, 11:16; 1 Corinthians 12:13), into the Body of Christ (Galatians 3:27; First Corinthians 12:13).

5. God has peace with us through Christ (Romans 5:1).

6. God transfers the righteousness of Christ to us by faith, which is apart from works (Second Corinthians 5:19 and 21; Galatians 2:16, 3:6-9, 24; Romans 3:21-24, 5:9, 10:14).

7. God, as Judge, declares that the guilt and penalty for our sin has been paid for once and for all. He forgives us our sins and we have a right standing before Him. Therefore, we are justified (Romans 3:21-26; Titus 3:7; First Corinthians 6:11; Hebrews 10:10).

8. God adopts us into His family (Ephesians 1:4-5; John 1:12; Galatians 3:26-29).

9. God writes our name in the Lambs Book of Life (Dani'el 12:1; Luke 10:20; Philippians 4:3; Hebrews 12:23; Revelation 3:5, 20:12 and 15, 21:27).

Rabbi Sha'ul wrote: For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, not any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation (that includes us), will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39). Once God does all of the above, we cannot possibly undo it. We are one with Him and there are no abortions in heaven (see Ms - The Eternal Security of the Believer).
