Turn to 1TI 5:21
REV 7:10-12 – resurrected believers praise the Lord for salvation and the angels join in by twice saying Amen, in which they concur, agree, express that they believe it.
In the Tribulation, while angels bring divine judgment upon the earth, no angel is allowed to execute this judgment apart from Jesus Christ because He alone is worthy, REV 5:2-5.
JOB 4:17-18 Can mankind be just before God? Can a man be pure before his Maker? He puts no trust even in His servants; And against His angels He charges error.
One vague reference to Angelic salvation in the Scripture: HEB 2:2-4.
True salvation looked ahead to Christ:
GEN 3:21 And the LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.
GEN 3:7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.
A counterfeit presupposes understanding of the real.
HOLY – hosios used to express the uniqueness of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hosios – a prerequisite for prayer, 1TI 2:8.
Hosios – that which should become a believer’s testimony,
Hosios – the believer’s goal, LUK 1:75.
A characteristic of the New Self or New Man, EPH 4:24.
