Wall of Salvation
Posted by adventbiblestudy on September 10, 2008
This is an example of a simple word study. All that needs to be done is to look up the word “wall” in a concordance, or on a Bible program. The Bible will tell you what the “wall” spiritually represents.
KJV Isaiah 26:1
1. In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
KJV Isaiah 60:18
18. Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
Here we can see that the “wall” represents “salvation”.
KJV Isaiah 49:16
16. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
KJV Isaiah 56:5
5. Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
The Bible goes one step further to tell us that the “wall” also represents the promise of “eternal life”, or “salvation” in itself.
KJV Amos 7:7
7. Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.
In Amos, the Lord is trying to show something. Since the “wall” represents “salvation” and the promise of “eternal life”, the Lord must be showing us the measure, or standard upon with salvation is judged.
KJV Acts 4:10-12
10. Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
11. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
12. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
So this must be yet another prophesy of the coming Savior.
KJV Zechariah 2:5
For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
It is this “salvation” that protects and secures us.
