What Are the Definitions of Popular Biblical Terms?

Some common biblical terms include words such as salvation, abide in Christ, the Holy Spirit, gospel and blessings. These words form the foundation of a believer's faith in Jesus Christ and God's grace, which refers to His kindness. Miracles is another common biblical term which is described as believers exercising their faith and miracles in signs and wonders that transcend laws of nature are witnessed.

To be saved or born again follows God's plan to regenerate man from spiritual death into eternal life at the moment of expressing faith in Jesus Christ. When one listens to the Gospel and at that moment acknowledges the son of God, the believer is identified with Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection as recorded in Romans 6:3-4.

Abiding in Christ means that a believer is in agreement with the teachings and commandments of Christ, as recorded in 1 John 2:24. 1 John 2:1 urges believers to resist the temptation to sin that disconnects man from God. Abiding in Christ leads to baptism by means of the Holy Spirit where every believer in Jesus Christ is baptized into union with Him by means of the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation. 1 Corinthians 12:13 describes this union that led to the unification of Jews and Gentiles.

The new believer is encouraged, guided and helped by the Holy Spirit to overcome sin while demons possess an unbeliever by the invasion of the body through means of demonic religious ecstasy which is often manifested through strange events. In Luke 8:26-39, Jesus heals a demon-possessed man who had been homeless and naked for a long time.

Revelation 20:12-15 describes the fate of unbelievers who reject Christ when the book of life is opened and their actions are judged before the great white throne of judgment.
