- He would be saved before his sins are remitted. “The Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall received the gift of the Holy Ghost” (Acts 2:38).
- He would be saved before his sins are washed away. “And now why tarriest thou? Arise and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16).
- He would be saved before he is born again. “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee. Except a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5).
- He would be saved outside of Christ. “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ” (Galatians 3:27).
- He would be saved before he is saved. “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ” (I Peter 3:21).
He would be saved sooner than the Lord promised. “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be condemned” (Mark 16:16).
