“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also over-
came, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Rev.3:21).
⇒ Christ cares for us no matter the situation.
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Pt.5:7).
⇒ Christ enables us to overcome the world.
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that over-
cometh the world, even our faith” (1 Jn.5:4).
⇒ Christ shows Himself strong in our behalf.
“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself
strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him” (2 Chron.16:9).
⇒ Christ delivers us from fear.
“Fear thou not; For I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen
thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness”
⇒ Christ sustains and supports the aged believer.
“And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made,
and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you” (Is.46:4).
(8:38-39) Trials, Deliverance from—Salvation—God, Love of: Christ delivers believers from the most extreme expe-
riences and forces. This is the seventh assurance of deliverance. There is nothing in the universe that can separate the be-
liever from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. The believer can be fully persuaded of this glorious fact. Just
consider the experiences and forces mentioned by Scripture:
⇒ Not death: confronting death and leaving this world cannot separate us from Christ and His love (Jn.5:24).
⇒ Not life: no trial or pleasure or comfort of life, not any person nor anything in this life can separate us from
Christ and His love.
⇒ Not angels, principalities, or powers: no heavenly or spiritual creature, no being from any other dimension
can separate us from Christ and His love.
⇒ Not anything present or anything to come: neither present events, beings or things, nor future events,
beings, or things—absolutely nothing in existence or anything in future existence—can cut us off from Christ
and His love.
⇒ Not height or depth: nothing from outer space or from the depths of the earth can separate us from
Christ and His love.
Note the grand finale: if there be any other creature than the ones named, that creature cannot separate us from “the love
of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with
joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing” (Zeph.3:17).
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life” (Jn.3:16).
“At that day [after Jesus’ ascension] ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will
pray the Father for you: for the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have be-
lieved that I came out from God” (Jn.16:26-27).
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”
“But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were
dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved)” (Eph.2:4-5).
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the
sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not” (1 Jn.3:1).
“In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son
into the world, that we might live through him” (1 Jn.4:9).
“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting
love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee” (Jer.31:3).
