Salvation

(J. C. Philpot, "The Accuser of the Brethren)

And they were shouting with a mighty shout,
"Salvation comes from our God on the throne
and from the Lamb!" Revelation 7:10

The sweetest song that heaven ever proclaimed,
the most blessed note that ever melted the soul,
is salvation.

Saved FROM . . .

  death and hell;
  the worm which never dies;
  the fire which is never quenched;
  the sulphurous flames of the bottomless pit;
  the companionship of tormenting fiends and
  all the foul wretches under which earth has groaned;
  blaspheming God in unutterable woe;
  an eternity of misery without end or hope!

Saved INTO . . .
  heaven;
  the sight of Jesus as He is;
  perfect holiness and happiness;
  the blissful company of holy angels and glorified saints;
and all this during the countless ages of a blessed eternity!

What tongue of men or angels can describe the
millionth part of what is contained in the word
salvation
?
