The scriptures references the word Salvation many times. Some scriptures reference the word as an eternal deliverance. Others reference the word as a deliverance we receive as we sojourn here on earth, which outnumbers the eternal application of the word many times over. This word "salvation" is taken out of context more than most words in the scriptures. Romans 10:1, 2, Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to Israel is, that they might be saved (Delivered from their lack of knowledge) For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God (evidence of being born again) , but not according to knowledge (of Jesus's finished work on the cross) For they being ignorant of God's righteousness ( the imputed righteousness of Christ by his death on the cross) And going about to establish their own righteousness (by their good works) have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. Matt 10:5,6, Jesus instructed his apostles to go and preach to the lost sheep (God's born again children, that were lost to a lack of knowledge), of the house of Israel. God's called out preachers of his word, in this day and time, still have the same commission from God to preach to his elect people the good news of the gospel informing them that Jesus has already secured their eternal deliverance by his death on the cross and also to deliver the message in the scriptures as to how God wants them to live their lives as they sojourn here on this earth.
