Salvation by J. C. Philpot

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?
