    THE FORTY THINGS RECEIVED AT SALVATION which cannot be undone; and therefore once saved always saved, and once a son always a son.
    1. Imputed Righteousness 21. Unseen Assets
    2. Justification 22. Judgement of Sins
    3. Regeneration 23. Royal Adoption
    4. A Human Spirit connecting with Holy Spirit 24. Eternal Relationship to God
    5. Imputed Everlasting Life 25. We are on the Rock Jesus Christ
    6. Baptism of the Holy Spirit 26. We are a Gift to Christ
    7. Propitiation 27. Royal Priesthood
    8. Reconciliation 28. We are a Chosen Generation
    9. Redemption 29. Access to God
    10. Forgiveness 30. We Are Under God’s Care
    11. Removal of Condemnation 31. We are His Inheritance
    12. Removal of Domination of the Old Sin Nature 32. We Inherit Christ’s Eternal Future
    13. Removal of Satan’s Power 33. We have a Heavenly Partnership and Association
    14. Freedom From the Penalty of the Mosaic Law 34. We Become Heavenly Citizens
    15. Identification with Jesus Christ 35. We Become Members of the Royal Family of God
    16. Indwelling of God the Father 36. We are Light in the Lord
    17. Indwelling of Jesus Christ 37. We are United to the Trinity
    18. Indwelling of the Holy Spirit 38. We are Glorified
    19. Sealing of Your Salvation 39. We are Complete in Him
    20. Circumcision of the Soul 40. We Receive a Guardian Angel
    At the moment of salvation, every believer in Jesus Christ receives 40 things from God. Of the 40 things, 39 of them are permanent and can never be removed from the believer – even by God himself! The only temporary thing is the Filling of the Holy Spirit which we lose due to our own free will to act against God. We can repeatedly gain the Filling of the Spirit following confession of our known sins to the Father.
