Salvation, Enduring and Overcoming

What does it mean to be saved? When does salvation occur? Is salvation a status? The Bible says that, “He who endures to the end will be saved.” What does it mean to endure to the end?

The Bible also says, “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world” and “To the one who conquers…” What does it mean to overcome the world and to conquer? What do you receive if you overcome/conquer?
