The word deliverance is from the late 13th century, and it means the “action of setting free” in physical or spiritual senses. The Bible teaches us, that the One, whom the Son of God, Jesus Christ, makes free is free indeed (John 8:36). In other words, the one whom Jesus delivers (frees) from death is delivered indeed. Such a person is alive; and shall LIVE forever. Why? because Jesus’ deliverance is of the past, of the present and of the future. He has delivered us from the sentence of death (past), and he doth deliver (present) and in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us (future) (2 Corinthians 1:9-10).
Points to ponder:
Whoever believes in Jesus Christ, the Only begotten Son of God, whom God gave because he loved the world greatly, shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Have you been deLIVEred by Jesus Christ to LIVE forever for Jesus Christ? He whom Jesus deLIVErs is DELIVERED indeed – in the past, the present and in the future.
2 Corinthians 1:9-10 (KJV)
