Salvation is a plan, a remedy, which has for its object the restoration of man from the power of sin and the effects of the fall. Now any project should command attention and confidence in proportion to the greatness of its author. Who has conceived and devised the plan of salvation? Thus it is written: " Salvation belongeth unto the Lord. " He is the sole originator and proprietor of this most stupendous undertaking and marvelous business that has ever been opened upon earth. Therefore, "The salvation of the righteous is of the Lord. "—Psa. 37: 39. And thus hath Jehovah spoken to his anointed: "I will also give thee for a light unto the Gentiles, that thou mayest be MY SALVATION unto the ends of the earth. "—Isa. 49: 6. Here we learn that the Son of God is the only authorized mediator and embodiment of God's salvation. 'To him, therefore, every human being must either apply and be, saved; or, if refusing or neglecting to do so, in the day of judgment stand condemned "of sin because they believed not on him."—John 16: 9. "Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation."—Psa. 78: 22. When, therefore, good old Simeon saw the infant Redeemer, he embraced him, saying, "Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word; for mine eyes have seen thy salvation."—Luke 2: 29, 30. Salvation belongeth unto God, and Jesus Christ is his salvation. Bless his dear name! No person can ignore the Son and be saved by the Father, nor despise the Father without rejecting the Son. Luke 10: 6. Let it be distinctly understood that God has so arranged the plan of redemption that no man or set of men can monopolize, control, or get a patent upon it. God has offered a FREE SALVATION to all the world, and it is impossible for the most crafty to convert it into a means of speculation. It is true there are money-run religions many, and hirelings many. But [43] found God's salvation, and you are yet on too low a plane to enter heaven. You should come to him with this earnest prayer, "Let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high. "—Psa. 68: 29.

If you have not had a salvation that lasts all the year round with uninterrupted peace and victory in your soul, God says to you, "My salvation shall be forever."—Isa. 51: 6.

If the darts of the wicked one and the powers of hell oppress and overcome your soul, for Christ's sake do not think you must remain in that wretched condition. Acquaint yourself with God, and get an experience where you can joyfully say to him. "Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation, and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great. "—Psa. 18: 35.

If your heart is not joyful, but gloomy, you have not been blessed with the salvation of the Lord. Seek him with all your heart; then shall ye break forth in praise to God, saying, "Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him and he will save us; this is the LORD; we have waited for him; we will be glad, and rejoice in his salvation. "—Isa. 25: 9. Yea, " In thy salvation how greatly shall we rejoice?"—Psa. 21:1. Thank God for his perfect salvation! Reader, are you really in possession of it?
