SALVATION according to the Scriptures
is two-sided, natural and spiritual.

Spiritual as in
the new birth, spiritual life and life abundant (John 3:3 + John
temporal or eternal or both.
Temporal as in
blessings, healing and prosperity.
Eternal as in the
new birth 'born again' (John 3:3-15), this new birth is experiential
and not theoretical.
SPIRITUAL SALVATION is the new birth and is eternal salvation and depends only
on the will of God.
The new birth is
performed solemnly by the Lord Jesus Christ alone and is by GRACE
alone the unmerited favour of the Lord towards His children alone
This new birth is
the salvation from spiritual death to spiritual life for every child
of God who was in Christ before the foundation of the world (Eph.
In Adam all have died and in Christ Jesus all have been made
alive (1Cor. 15:22, Eph. 2:5), they will be born again, not by their
will or the will of any man but only by the will of God alone (John
1:12-13), and they can never die again (John 10:28) because they have
received eternal life.
For them alone the Lord Jesus Christ has died
on the cross (John 11:51-52) and everyone who was in Christ has died
with Him and shall also live with Him (2 Tim.2:11, Gal.2:20) and he
He will save His children to the utmost (Hebr. 7:25) by giving them
Spiritual life and He will lose not one of His children (John 17:12)
The Lord Jesus Christ will make His abode (in
Spirit) in the body of each one of His children the elect (John
14:23) and so they become the body of Christ His Church on this earth
(Mat. 16:18, 1Cor. 12:27) (eternal salvation by the Spirit of Jesus
NATURAL SALVATION is a temporal salvation and depends on the will of men.
This salvation is
by works (deeds) and is for everyone who believes (Luke 7:50, Luke
18:42, Mat. 10:22, James 5:15, Ps. 107:19, 1 Tim. 2:15, Mat. 14:30,
Luke 1:71, Mark 16:16, Ps.7:10), that is for Satan's children and for
God's children alike who are obedient to the Lord and His written Word
(the Bible) or doing what is right (Gen.4:7), but they will never see
or enter Life in the Spirit (John 3:36).
salvation men must believe to get the result and also must act upon
that belief, for God blesses and rewards the righteous and the
unrighteous alike, that is both Gods children and Satan's children
according to their deeds (Rom. 2:6). It is the will of God that no
one should perish, but all to be saved (1 Tim. 2:4), the word 'all'
means the elect and the non-elect and refers only to natural or temporal salvation and not to the new birth, to the Calvinist the
word 'all' means the elect only, and to the Arminian it means
everybody who is willing to believe.
and Arminianists amalgamate the natural and the spiritual salvation
and therefore are divided on the salvation doctrine.
(Luke 18:42) “And
Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.”
It is obvious that
this blind man was saved from physical (natural) blindness and not
from spiritual blindness, it doesn't say or indicate that the blind
man was saved from a spiritually dead state to a born again new life
of the Spirit.
(James 5:15) 'The
prayer of faith saves the sick', (1 Tim.2:15. + Mat.10:22. + Mark
16:16. + Luke 1:71.), all those passages and many more relating to
natural salvation, and everyone who believes in Jesus will be saved
The question is;

death to a brand new life of the Spirit in Christ Jesus our Lord and
