"And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is our salvation NEARER than when we believed" (Rom. 13:11). This scripture does not agree with my former theology! I thought I was saved WHEN I believed. This says that my salvation is NEARER than when I believed. How can that be?
The answer takes up a whole book entitled THE THIRD SALVATION (Spirit, Soul and Body). Briefly, you should know that Jesus already in the past saved our SPIRITS -- but the Holy Ghost in the present is saving our SOULS and in the future, the glory of the Father God will inhabit our physical BODIES.
There are people who will remain alive to the coming of the Christ. They will overcome the last enemy -- death.
