For this reason, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour you do not expect.
(Matthew 24:44 BSB)
Typically, when people think about salvation, they think about themselves - being saved from death. Rarely do they think about the people they have harmed throughout their lifetime.
But the salvation process addresses both: correcting the wrongs you have done to others, and correcting the wrongs others have done to you.
Another misconception about salvation is punishment. Read all of 2 Samuel 12 and understand that salvation saves you from death, it does NOT save you from punishment.
David had an affair with, and impregnated Uriah's wife, then David made arrangements to ensure Uriah was killed in battle. God sent Nathan to confront David:
Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.”
Nathan replied, “The Lord has taken away your sin. You are not going to die. But because by doing this you have shown utter contempt for the Lord, the son born to you will die.”(2 Samuel 12:13-14 NIV)
Like David, sometimes it takes a messenger from God, before people will acknowledge they have sinned. Punishment helps to rehabilitate sinners, and it shows the world that God does NOT condone sinners.
Rehabilitation means to restore (someone) to health or normal life by training and therapy after imprisonment, addiction, or illness.
You can think of the rehabilitation of a soul, like the rehabilitation of a wrecked car. Your soul is a wreck - meaning that because of your sins, or the sins of your spouse, you are unfit to serve God. Thus, salvation is the process of getting you from point A - being unfit to serve God - to point B- being ready to serve God.
The salvation of a car entails going to the crash site, towing the car to a junk yard, inspecting the car to see if there are any salvageable parts, and - if the owner of the car agrees with the damage assessment and cost to repair - removing the parts that are damaged and ordering new part, so that the car can be fixed and made useful again. The same is true of a soul. You will have to get rid of the people, places and things that make you unfit to serve God. Wives, husbands, children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, cousins, land, jobs, money - all these things have to go, if God did not give them to you. (See Matthew 7:24-27 and Luke 14:26-2, Matthew 8:18-22, Luke 9:57-62 and John 6:60-66)
JUST LIKE THERE IS COST TO REPAIR A WRECKED VEHICLE THERE IS COST TO MAKE YOUR SOUL READY TO SERVE GOD.
In other words, you are going to break up with Satan - give back all of Satan's gifts, clean all the skeletons out of your closet, and to the best of your ability, recompense those you have harmed, then you must study the Word of God and do it, before you are ready for a new or renewed relationship with God.
Recall how Satan tempted Jesus, and though Jesus had needs, Jesus rejected Satan's offer?
"Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry.
"The tempter came to Him and said, 'If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.'
"But Jesus answered, 'It is written: "Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. ” '
"Then the devil took Him to the holy city and set Him on the pinnacle of the temple. 'If You are the Son of God,' he said, 'throw Yourself down. For it is written: "He will command His angels concerning You,
and they will lift You up in their hands, so that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.” '
"Jesus replied, 'It is also written: "Do not put the Lord your God to the test.” '
"Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 'All this I will give You,' he said, 'if You will fall down and worship me.'
“'Away from Me, Satan!' Jesus declared. 'For it is written: "Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.”'
"Then the devil left Him, and angels came and ministered to Him." ( Matthew 4:1-11 BSB)
At some point in your life , Satan made you a similar offer, but unlike Jesus, you accepted Satan's offer. It may have been 20, 30, even 40 years since you committed the sin, but God did NOT forget it.
"But they do not consider that I remember all their evil. Now their deeds surround them; they are before my face." (Hosea 7:2 ESV)
"And it shall be like people, like priest. I will punish both of them for their ways and repay them for their deeds." (Hosea 4:9 BSB)
They offer sacrifices to me and eat the meat of the sacrifices. But I, the LORD, am not pleased with them, and now I will remember their sin and punish them for it;" (Hosea 8:13 GNT)
"They have deeply corrupted themselves as in the days of Gibeah; He will remember their guilt; He will punish their sins" (Hosea 9:9 ESV)
So now do you remember? Remember when you ran after that man and finally caught him.... in your pregnancy trap... you told yourself it was love, but it wasn't love, it was sex, manipulation, lies and a baby - a trophy child - a child used as a tool to cage a man. Or remember the wife you abandoned after you couldn't keep your penis in your pants? You took a whore into God's house and gave her your wife's marriage rites and marriage rights. You told yourself you were doing the right thing because this woman was having your baby, but those are human standards they are not God's standards, and as it turns out the whore's baby wasn't even your child, it was your brothers.
So now, what can you give to the woman you abandoned and her unborn children for recompense? How can you repay them? You can't, but God can, and that is why you need to partner with God. Because all of the things that you obtained by unholy means: backstabbing, manipulation, seduction, sexual immorality, tricks, traps, deception, lies, threats and coercion - all of those you did to ensnare someone else, ensnared you in a relationship with Satan.
God said, "Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous" Hebrews 13:14 ESV
God does not join the sexually immoral and adulterous together in marriage; Satan does.
NOW ITS TIME FOR JUDGMENT . PRAISE GOD!
And now, before you can have a relationship with God, you are going to have to make things right with all of those people you harmed. You see we can't approach the altar of God seeking salvation with dirt on our hands.
"Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.
"Reconcile quickly with your adversary, while you are still on the way to court. Otherwise he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.
"Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny. (Matthew 5:23-26 BSB)
Now here is a surprise: Even if you got 'saved' after the fact, started doing 'good works' and asked the LORD's forgiveness for entering into an unholy marriage, if you are still in that unholy marriage then what you claim to do in the name of the LORD is blasphemy, because it does not matter what you do after the fact, your foundation is still unholy. You can not build a relationship with God - who is holy - on top of an unholy foundation.
" Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Ask now the priests concerning the law, saying, If one bear holy flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be holy? And the priests answered and said, No.
"Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean.
Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean. (Haggai 2:11-14 KJV)
" ... the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God." (1 Corinthians 10:20 BSB)
THIS IS WHY GOD TOLD US IN THE FIRST PLACE "DO NOT BE UNEQUALLY YOKED" AND WHY GOD CALLS US NOW TO COME OUT AND BE SEPARATE:
"Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial ? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can exist between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be My people.”
“Therefore come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”
And: “I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. ”
(2 Corinthians 6:14-18 BSB)
The Holy Bible says that even the worst of us can clean ourselves up, make ourselves useful and offer our service to God.
"Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work." (2 Timothy 2:20-21 ESV)
So, what is salvation? Salvation is a process - a journey that you travel with God. On this journey, God transforms you and you go from being condemned and unfit to being a useful servant ready to serve God. This is what Jesus meant when He said "be ready." We must be ready to serve God when He returns in biological form.
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God--this is your true and proper worship." (Romans 12:1 NIV)
Getting ready begins with Truth. You must confess truth before those authorized in the Body of Christ. The Ministry of Second Timothy, Inc. (MOST) is authorized.
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." John 14:6 NLT)
"Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. " (Matthew 10:32-33 BSB)
Your soul is a wreck — unfit to serve God.
The Court of God is where people - living and dead- are judged, and sentenced.
"Then I saw a great white throne and the One seated on it. Earth and heaven fled from His presence, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne.
And there were open books, and one of them was the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their deeds, as recorded in the books. The sea gave up its dead, and Death and Hades gave up their dead, and each one was judged according to his deeds.
"Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death—the lake of fire. And if anyone was found whose name was not written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.(Revelation 20:11-15BSB)
Contrary to popular belief sentencing is not limited to paradise or hell. God has a wide range of disciplinary options at His disposal, including appeal of an initial death sentence. Death of the soul is a last resort disciplinary measure.
An action in the Court of God is initiated: 1) upon death, 2) by petition and 3) sua sponte.
In law, sua sponte ( Latin: "of his, her, its or their own accord") or suo motu ("on its own motion") describes an act of authority taken without formal prompting from another party. The term is usually applied to actions by a judge taken without a prior motion or request from the parties.[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sua_sponte]
In the Court of God, God takes action on His own.
The connection between the Court Process and the Salvation Process is this:
After a person is accused in the Court of God, they are given an opportunity to mount a defense. In order to triumph over Satan's accusations, and be saved from the second death, the defendant must overcome three categories: 1) Blood of the Lamb, 2) Testimony, and 3) Evidence that they did not love their lives more than they love God. These categories are discussed in "Requirements for Salvation" below. The scripture delineating these categories are taken from Revelation 12:7-11.
"Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
'Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.'" (Revelation 12:7-11 NIV)

You must be washed in the blood of the lamb, which means God must have chosen you.
"You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name."
(John 15:16 NLT)
You will also be required to literally give some of your blood as a sign of your love and commitment to God.
Your blood will be used for unrestricted purposes and in anyway God sees fit to reestablish His tribes on earth- identify the Children of Israel, to distinguish between the children of God and the children of Satan to establish marriage and reproductive rights, and to purpose and develop medical solutions for those suffering from God's curse or a plague.
Curse is an anagram for Cures.

The Testimony That Is Required For Salvation is NOT Testimony about what God did for you, but testimony about what you did for God.
Your Testimony Should Be An Outward Demonstration of Faith, in the Face of Adversity, Comparable to What Can Be Found in Hebrews 11, by Abraham.
By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.
(Hebrews 11:17-19 NIV)
You are not being asked to do anything more than the people already at God's table had to endure.
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,
“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
(Hebrews 12:1-13 NIV)
Don't even think about your old life, for where your thoughts are, your heart remains.
Think about your new life with God unencumbered and free from sin.
You were deceived and manipulated. Your old life was a lie, that robbed you of the rich and satisfying life God intended for you.
But that is what Satan does, he deceives and robs people while being charming and coy - and Satan's bloodline children do the same - they rob the children of God of happiness and true love.
So that huge dragon--the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world--was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him.
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
(John 10:10 NLT)
Now let me add one more thing - which is good news for the children of Satan.
In the past, my Father God has said "I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed?" (Matthew 25:26 ESV)
What this means is that if you stop the wickedness and clean yourself up - making yourself useful to the master - God might forget your sins.
Hear the LORD, "If they give back what they took in pledge for a loan, return what they have stolen, follow the decrees that give life, and do no evil, they will surely live; they will not die.
"None of the sins they have committed will be remembered against them. They have done what is just and right; they will surely live.
"Yet your people say, 'The way of the Lord is not just.' But it is their way that is not just."
"If the righteous turn from their righteousness and do evil, they will die for it.
"And if the wicked turn away from their wickedness and do what is just and right, they will live by doing so.
"Yet you say, house of Israel, 'The way of the Lord is not just.' But I will judge each of you according to your own ways."
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
( 2 Timothy 2:19-26 NIV)
You must produce concrete and tangible evidence that you did not love your life more than you love God. You must demonstrate total submission to God, even to the point of giving up your own life like Jesus did for you.
You must have taken sincere steps to right all your wrongs, and you must produce evidence that you have forsaken the life you created with Satan.
Did you walk away from the husband, the wife, the child, the job, the power, the luxuries that Satan gave you and NOT look back? You'll have to prove it!
For, "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot dine with the Lord and dine with demons, …"
( 1 Corinthians 10:21 ISV)
Be prepared to give up everything that Satan gave you ... the wife, the children, the husband, the father, the mother, the job, the riches, the luxuries, the comforts and conveniences; Oh yeah, the houses, the land, and the cars; any thing or person you manipulated to get what you wanted or which someone manipulated on your behalf - give back because it does not belong to you.
You must forsake the husband, the wife, the children, the father, the mother, the land, the job, the business, the houses, the cars, the joint bank accounts, the friends, the relatives, the cell phones, the social media accounts. Some people will be required to give up their entire life, any and everything that connects you to Satan must go!
Remember what happened to Lot’s wife! If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it. That night two people will be asleep in one bed; one will be taken, the other left.
Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”
“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Can he enter his mother’s womb a second time to be born?”
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh is born of flesh, but spirit is born of the Spirit. Do not be amazed that I said, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes. You hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
(John 3:3-8 BSB)
To Be Born Again You Must Be NAKED and UNENCUMBERED like you were the first time you were born.
On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?” Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life. Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.”
From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
(John 6:60-66 NIV)
So you may start on
The Road To Salvation®, but you may miss your husband, wife, child, mother or father and try to reconnect with them,
But understand this: Only "...the person who endures to the end will be saved."
(Matthew 24:13 ESV)
If Peter and the other disciples were required to leave everything before they could sit down with Jesus Christ and share a meal with Him, then so shall you.
“Look,” said Peter, “we have left everything we had to follow You.”
“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God will fail to receive many times more in this age—and in the age to come, eternal life.”
(Luke 18:28-30 BSB)
"In the same way, therefore, every one of you who does not say good-bye to all his possessions cannot be My disciple. "
(Luke 14:33 HCSB)
“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.
(Luke 14:26-27 BSB)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
