Q. I have a weird question of sorts. Normally we say that we can’t tell if someone is truly saved. Can we say anything about the O.T personalities? Like could we say that David, Moses or the Prophets were saved for sure or should we even assume? I was just curious about that.
A. The Bible is clear in some of these cases, for instance telling us that Daniel was saved (Daniel 12:13). David apparently received this same assurance (Psalm 23:6). God called Abraham His friend, and He personally buried Moses. Enoch and Elijah were taken live into heaven, and in Matt 22:32, Jesus quoted His Father as saying, “I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Jesus said, “He is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” I think it’s safe to assume that the people God used in such mighty ways were rewarded with Eternal life.
