Welcome and thanks for reading.  We’re almost finished with our study on the “Point of Salvation”.

Let’s answer the following question.  If the actual point of salvation is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the
Holy Spirit wasn’t given until after the resurrection of Jesus, how were believers saved before the time of Jesus?

Here’s the explanation.  The Holy Spirit has been present even before the earth was created.  He has indwelled
believers before Jesus and after Jesus.  The Holy Spirit has covered the souls of all believers with his righteousness
since the creation of man.

Remember, 2 Thessalonians 2:13  … from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work
of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.

Unfortunately, most believers in the true God, before Jesus, were from the tribe of Israel.

Here’s the difference.  The Holy Spirit wasn’t released in his fullness until after the resurrection of Jesus.  The
ministering or counseling side, the administrative or communicating side of the Holy Spirit wasn’t released until
after the resurrection of Jesus.  The Holy Spirit used to counsel and communicate only with the prophets and high
priests.  Now he counsels and communicates with all believers.  He is now known as “the Great Counselor.”

Next week, we will conclude our study on the Point of Salvation.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
