A saint is one who believes in what God the Father, Jesus his Son and the Holy Spirit accomplished in the work of the “Plan of Salvation”. In his heart, he believes he is a son of God and awaits the return of Jesus as King of kings and Lord of lords. By remaining, abiding, connected to Jesus Christ in the Spirit of God, a saint is sealed unto the day Jesus comes with his reward.
Do not let anyone take away your rightful inheritance. You are a child of God, not because of anything you have done but because of what God has already accomplished in his “Plan of Salvation.”
