GLORIFICATION--WHEN WE SEE JESUS, WE SHALL BE AS HE IS
Jesse M. Hendley
I John 3
If you have your Bibles now, friends, turn with me to
First John, chapter 3, and we are taking up again the
study of the word SALVATION.
Let me repeat now, for repetition is a way of
teaching. On television when they want some commercial
to stick in your mind, they REPEAT it. They nail it
down, they drive it home. So, to repeat, SALVATION IS
A CRISIS, FOLLOWED BY A PROCESS, and ISSUING IN A
PERFECT STATE. The crisis is the New Birth. It is

RIGHTEOUS. That is Justification. You are justified.

Glorification today, and I hope it will be a blessing
to our hearts. It is a wonderful study about the Lord
Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord. I BELIEVE in
Him, don't you?
