Psalms 62:1,25:5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 Truly my soul silently waits upon God; from him comes my salvation.1 [David waited upon God in silence, and so should we. Silence is humble; silence enables us to hear his soft voice. We wait on God to attain salvation. “I have waited for your salvation, O LORD.” Gen 49:18. “Therefore I will look to the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.” Mic 7:7. ““Lo! This is our God, we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” Isa 25:9]

 5 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; I wait on you all the day long.

Luke 21:19

 19 By your firm and patient endurance do you [possess] attain the true Life of your souls.2 [For salvation, (to save your soul), you must patiently endure in waiting, tribulations, suffering, and obedience in order to mortify and crucify your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial. From the Word of the Lord within: "To endure on the cross is dying. Salvation comes to those who heed and obey. Salvation comes to those who wait."]

Hebrews 9:28

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 28 So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who persistently and patiently wait for him he will appear the second time, not to bear sin, but to bring full salvation.3 [Those who are persistently and patiently waiting on God, see Jesus appear in their hearts, and see Jesus bring their salvation, which is to be delivered (freed) from all sin. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey Him; only those who heed and obey Him receive eternal salvation. Heb 5:9. But if we hope for what we do not yet see, then we wait for it [salvation] with patient endurance, Rom 8:25; we wait for salvation. From the Word of the Lord within: "You must wait on the Lord to receive salvation."]

Romans 8:25

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet see, then we wait for it [salvation] with patient endurance. [Notice, Paul tells them that if they have not seen their salvation, they are to wait for it with patient endurance. This is another proof that salvation comes to those who heed and obey the spoken-to-them commands of God that they hear as they persistently and patiently wait on Him, Heb 5:9, 9:28. Reading about being saved, or preachers telling us that we are saved, or saying that we are saved, is not seeing or experiencing salvation; so how do we see salvation — when we see Jesus bring our salvation in this present life. Just like we, through the Spirit, by faith, patiently wait for the hope of righteousness, Gal 5:5, we wait for salvation. From the Word of the Lord within: "You must wait on the Lord to receive salvation."]

Hebrews 6:15

 15 And so, after Abraham had patiently endured [in waiting on God and obeying His voice], he obtained the promise.4 [Abraham, the father of the Christian faith, did not receive instant salvation; and neither does anyone without patient endurance on the inward cross of self-denialendurance to the death of your sinful nature, carnal mind, passions, pleasures, lusts, pride, and satanic spirit that all uncrucified men have. “Lo! This is our God, we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” Isa 25:9]

Lamentations 3:25-26

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. [To wait on God is to seek. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey Him; only those who heed and obey Him receive eternal salvation. Heb 5:9. He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Heb 11:6.]

 26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. From the Word of the Lord within: "You must wait on the Lord to receive salvation."]
