From Seth to Noah, to Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, Joseph, to the Nation of Isreal.Even Adam and Eve were justified through faith in the promised Seed of the Woman who would bruise Satans's head which Seed is Christ.God has forever had one way of salvation, that is thrugh faith. IN the Old testament, it was through faith in the comming Christ and now it is through faith in the Christ who has come.In the Old Testament He was pictured in shadow, type, figure, and prophecy. He is the reality of the sacrafices, the reality of the Temple, the reality of the Tabernacle, etc. IN the New Testament He is revealed in the flesh, crucified for our sins and raised from the dead, ascended to the right hand of God and indwelling us in our spirit.Has anyone ever been saved apart from Christ? No, because the Lord Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the Life and no one comes to the Father but by Me" and:"there is salvation in no one else for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we may be saved."Graftedbranch
