Whatever people may face in life, trust the process; God’s love through Christ Jesus will save humanity.

Rescuing is about helping someone out of a situation they don’t want to be in. One that is beyond their capabilities. To save is to assist an individual in need, to help someone who cannot help themselves. Getting a patient to an emergency healthcare facility is just as crucial as providing emergency healthcare on the scene. In emergency medicine combined with rescue, we focus on patients in physical danger that could cause injury, further injury, and death. There are different types of rescuing; mountain rescue, vehicle extrication, helicopter rescue, air rescue, rope rescue, wilderness search and rescue, confined spaces rescue, high angle rescue, trench rescue, swift-water, and more. 

In the spiritual context, God has used people as written in the Bible- Old Testament to rescue His people from their enemies and to return to Him.

Story of Ruth

Ruth, an extraordinary young woman, declares a powerful commitment to her mother-in-law and to the God of Israel. Ruth’s husband, brother-in-law, and father-in-law had died, leaving Ruth, Orpah, and Naomi widows. All three women, devastated by their grief and loss, had choices. Naomi’s advice to her two daughters-in-law is to return to their homeland. Orpah agrees with her mother-in-law and returns home, but Ruth refuses Naomi’s advice and wisely chooses to stay to seek refuge in the God of Israel. Her announcement declares that she is turning her back on her old nature, renouncing Moab’s non-religious ways to stay loyal to Naomi, her people, and her God, the God of Israel. Through Ruth’s declaration, God’s plan of salvation unfolds and provides humanity with a beautiful picture of the importance of commitment, loyalty, and faithfulness to God and one another.

Life of Samson

He is the Biblical Hercules, a man of super-human strength who could not escape tragedy. Samson’s story is found in the Judge’s book, chapters 13-16. He is the last of the prominent judges who led the Israelites, but he is hardly an ideal role model or savior. Samson breaks vows, marries outside of the people of Israel twice, and functions more as a vigilante than a leader.

Gideon Leading The Small Army

Gideon was the fifth judge of Israel in the Judge’s book. He is introduced in chapter 6 of the book while collecting and hiding wheat from the enemy. An angel came to Gideon and asked him to take on the task of overthrowing their enemy (Midianites). Relatively, Gideon learned to trust God step by step. If the angel had told Gideon that he would defeat the 135,000-person army of the Midianites with just 300 men, Gideon would have had an impossible time believing that the message was from God. God led him step by step. Paring down the army so that Gideon knew God was in control. The purpose of such a small army was that God wanted Israel to see that He, not Gideon and his men, defeated the enemy (Judges 7:2).

Nonetheless, The Best Plan of Salvation is Through Christ Jesus

Jesus was the One when sin entered the world of humanity through Adam; the relationship between God and man was broken. For restoration to occur, it became vital to replace the lifeblood of another. Since love is at the core of God’s character, He granted mercy and forgiveness to all humanity by providing the perfect sacrifice for the redemption of His creation. 

A book titled “She Let God Write Her Story” describes God’s perfect salvation plan by Yelena BorichevskaIt is the story of a teen girl who moved from Ukraine to the United States of America shortly after the 9/11 incident. The level of a girl’s desire to please God and choose His will for her life. He also put her through the challenges and trials of life. Born and raised in Rivne, Ukraine, Yelena, and her family moved to America’s Vancouver when she was almost seventeen. Yelena has always considered herself blessed beyond limits as she was raised by her God-loving and God-fearing parents.

The Bible says that TODAY is saving grace day. 

Thus, put your faith in Christ today, for tomorrow might be too late. Don’t allow yourself to end up in the lake of fire! Get saved today! And by doing so, you must call upon the Lord. This call is praying to the Lord. Prayer is connected with being held because the Bible says, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the God shall be saved.” (Rom. 10:13). You must pray to be saved.
