    Default Five scriptures that clearly teach the Death of Christ saves !

    One thing i find to be prominent in the religious world, and thats them who dare to utter the blasphemous words:


    The death of Christ doesn't save anyone. or The death of Christ doesnt save anyone but His life does, referring to Rom 5:10


    10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.


    Now I ask where in this verse does it say "the death of Christ doesnt save anyone" ? It doest ! Yes it says "we shall be saved by His Life" but who is that referring to ? Believers, the already saved, they shall be saved in the future. Salvation is in three tenses scripturally speaking, past, present and future. The we here in the phrase"
    we shall be saved by his life"are not lost people.


    In fact they are saved, justified and reconciled people who Christ died for.. And this in fact will be scripture #1 that proves without a shadow of doubt, that Christ's Death alone saved them He died for.


    Now how do we know this ? Simple, Paul says that Believers were reconciled to God while being enemies or unbelievers. Now to be reconciled to God is Salvation, at least an aspect of it, its to be saved from the penalty of sin, and to be put into a right relationship with God, to be received into His Favour. The word reconciled here is the greek word katallassō and means:


    to change, exchange, as coins for others of equivalent value



    1. to reconcile (those who are at variance)
    2. return to favour with, be reconciled to one
    3. to receive one into favour


      Now those in the Favour of God are not lost, not by a long shot, they are saved from the Wrath of God and the Penalty of Sin. Paul writes to the Thessalonians 1 Thess 1:10


      And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.


      His being rasied from the dead certifys that His death delivered them from the wrath to come.



      So when men say that the death of Christ never saved anyone, beware, thats a false teacher ! They have not been sent of God to bear the testimony of the Gospel !

    Now scripture #2 that teaches the Death of Christ alone saves them He died for, the first being Rom 5:10 is Heb 10:14

    14 For by one offering[His Death] he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.


    Folks being perfected forever is Salvation, its being saved ! And How ? By One Offering which is His Death ! He hath perfected forever them which are sanctified or being sanctified, passive voice. They are being Sanctified because they have been made Perfect Perfect tense by the death of Christ !

    The word perfect is the greek word teleioō and means:


    to make perfect, complete

    to carry through completely, to accomplish, finish, bring to an end


    to complete (perfect)

    add what is yet wanting in order to render a thing full

    to be found perfect


    to bring to the end (goal) proposed

    to accomplish

    bring to a close or fulfilment by event

    of the prophecies of the scriptures



    Now that greek word comes from teleios which Jesus uses here with the young ruler Matt 19:21

    Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.


    ​And that being perfect ensures eternal treasures in heaven ! Now who wants to debate thats not Salvation for being Perfect. The thing is, Christ required the young ruler to do something to acquire being perfect, whereas scripture in Heb 10:14 reveals that Christ's Death/Offering makes them He died for Perfected forever, thats Salvation ensured by Gods own word !

    #3. A scripture that teaches the life and death of Christ alone saved them He lived and died for ! Rom 5:19

    19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

    The Obedience of Christ here is comprised of His Life of Law Keeping Obedience unto the Death of the Cross as stated here Phil 2:8

    8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

    And the result of that Obedience is many SHALL BE MADE RIGHTEOUS ! Thats Salvation, to be made Righteous is to be saved. The Righteous shall shine in the Kingdom of their Father Matt 13:43

    Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

    How come they to be made Righteous ? By the Obedience of One Rom 5:19 , even the death of the Cross, by which also they were perfected forever Heb 10:14


    No matter how you slice it, their obedience had nothing to do with being made righteous, because that would overthrow the clear declaration of Rom 5:19 that it was by the Obedience of One that the many were made Righteous, saved !

    #4 Another scripture that teaches salvation is the result of the death of Christ is 1 Pet 2:24

    24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

    The word stripes here is speaking of His Death, the baring of our sins, which results in our being healed !

    Now the word healed is the greek word iaomai and means:


    to cure, heal

    to make whole

    to free from errors and sins, to bring about (one's) salvation

    To bring about ones salvation means to effect it, to actualize it.

    To make one whole.


    Now this is credited to Christ's stripes or His sufferings unto death when He bare our sins !

    This scripture is also witnessed in the Prophets Isa 53:5

    But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.


    We are healed because of and as an effect of His stripes. We became believers because of and as an effect of His stripes !

    #5. Another passage of scripture that teaches the death of Christ alone saves them He died for is Rev 1:5-6

    5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

    6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.


    Now notice what this passage subscribes to Christ alone :

    That He Loved us as He did His Church Eph 5:25

    25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

    He washed us from our sins in His own Blood !Note, everyone Christ Loved, He washed them from their sins in His own Blood.

    The word for washed is the greek word luˇ and means:
    I loose, untie, release, (b) met: I break, destroy, set at naught, contravene; I break up a meeting, annul.

    It has to do with being freed from our sins Rom 6:7

    7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. And this is Justification, the word freed here is the greek word dikaioˇ and means:

    I make righteous, defend the cause of, plead for the righteousness (innocence) of, acquit, justify; hence: I regard as righteous.

    Now those whom Christ Loved, He washed from their sins, which freed them from the guilt and condemnation due to them, and made them righteous: ( Rom 5:19)

    Jn Gill writes:

    and washed us from our sins in his own blood; which shows that these persons were loved before washed; they were not first washed, and then loved, but first loved, and then washed. Love was the cause of washing, and not washing the cause of love; hence it appears that they were in themselves filthy, and unclean through sin; and that they could not cleanse themselves by anything they could do; and that such was the love of Christ to them, that he shed his precious blood for them, which is a fountain opened, to wash in for sin, and which cleanses from all sin. This is to be understood, not of the sanctification of their natures, which is the work of the Spirit, but of atonement for their sins, and justification from them by the blood of Christ, whereby they are so removed, that they are all fair, and without spot.
    Justification from sin is the result of Christ Loving those He Loved, and those He Loved, He gave Himself for which washed them from their sins in His Own Blood !

    #5. Another passage of scripture that teaches the death of Christ alone saves them He died for is Rev 1:5-6 Pt 2

    5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

    6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    Now lets continue to look at the passage and see the rich Saving Grace revealed, not only did the death of Christ effect the washing us from our sins, which is Justification.

    But it makes us Kings and Priests unto God ! Thats Spiritual conversion, Spiritual life. It effects conversion and service. And no wonder John concludes the passage with these words :

    to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. That is to Christ, to Him be Glory and Dominion, the results and effects of His Death !
