(Originally printed in the Summer 2005 Issue of the MCOI Journal Beginning on page 16)
Jehovah is the ONLY Savior:
Isaiah 43:11: I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no Savior.
Isaiah 45:21: Make your report and your presentation. Yes, let them consult together in unity. Who has caused this to be heard from long time ago? [Who] has reported it from that very time? Is it not I, Jehovah, besides whom there is no other God; a righteous God and a Savior, there being none excepting me?
Hosea 13:4: But I am Jehovah your God from the land of Egypt, and there was no God except me that you used to know and there was no savior but I.
Jesus is the ONLY Savior:
Acts 4:10-12: let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you impaled but whom God raised up from the dead, by this one does this man stand here sound in front of you. This is ‘the stone that was treated by you builders as of no account that has become the head of the corner.’ Furthermore, there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.
Jehovah is the Savior:
Psalm 38:22: Do make haste to my assistance, O Jehovah my salvation.
Isaiah 43:3: For I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel your Savior.
Isaiah 49:26: I, Jehovah, am your Savior
Isaiah 60:16: You will be certain to know that I, Jehovah, am your Savior,
God is our Savior:
Jude 24-25: to [the] only God our Savior
Titus 2:10: not committing theft, but exhibiting good fidelity to the full, so that they may adorn the teaching of our Savior, God, in all things.
Titus 3:4: However, when the kindness and the love for man on the part of our Savior, God, was manifested,
1 Timothy 4:10: because we have rested our hope on a living God, who is a Savior of all sorts of men,
Luke 1:47: and my spirit cannot keep from being overjoyed at God my Savior;
Jesus Christ is our Savior:
Titus 1:4: May there be undeserved kindness and peace from God [the] Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
Titus 3:6: This [spirit] he poured out richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior,
2 Timothy 1:10: but now it has been made clearly evident through the manifestation of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has abolished death but has shed light upon life and incorruption through the good news,
Titus 2:13: While we wait for the happy hope and glorious manifestation of the great God and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus,
2 Peter 1:11: In fact, thus there will be richly supplied to YOU the entrance into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18: No, but go on growing in the undeserved kindness and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him [be] the glory both now and to the day of eternity.
THERE IS ONLY ONE SAVIOR!!!
If Jehovah is called the Savior,
if God is called the Savior,
if Jesus is called the Savior,
THEY ALL MUST BE THE ONE AND ONLY SAVIOR!!!
or there would be three different Saviors!
NOWHERE IS THE FATHER CALLED “SAVIOR.”!!!
Acts 16:30-34: And he brought them outside and said: “Sirs, what must I do to get saved?” They said: “Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will get saved, you and your household.” And they spoke the word of Jehovah to him together with all those in his house. And he took them along in that hour of the night and bathed their stripes; and, one and all, he and his were baptized without delay. And he brought them into his house and set a table before them, and he rejoiced greatly with all his household now that he had believed God.
The Apostles told him to believe on the Lord Jesus and they would be saved. He and his household were saved because they believed God.
John 6:37: (Jesus is speaking) “Everything the Father gives me will come to me, and the one that comes to me I will by no means drive away;”
Jesus, Himself, says very plainly, that the one that comes to Him, he will never drive away. He wants us to come to Him.
Matthew 11:28-30: (Jesus is speaking) “Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am mild tempered and lowly in heart, and you will find refreshment for you souls. For my yoke is kindly and my load is light.”
John 6:45: (Jesus is speaking) “Everyone that has heard from the Father and has learned comes to me .”
Jesus doesn’t say go to the Father, or Jehovah, or God, He says “come to me.”
2 Timothy 3:15-17: (Paul is speaking) and that from infancy you have known the holy writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through the faith in connection with Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.
Paul is telling Timothy that the holy writings (at that time this was the Old Testament) makes one wise for salvation (because the Law and Prophets all point to Jesus, see Romans 3:21-22). Also, the Scriptures alone are all that is needed to make the man of God fully competent and completely equipped.Ω
