This is the Ordo Salutis. Jesus said “I am the Door”:
John 10 v 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
We can either comply with this sequence of events and be saved or reject it and try to bypass Jesus and go directly to the Father as Muslims claim to do upon the authority of their prophet Mohammed. Those who are so foolish will pay the ultimate price.
