Why a Born Again Person CANNOT Lose Salvation

by Trevor (trev) McNamee

I,trust and pray,the following will bless you that you may have assurance of Eternal Life.That it cannot be lost.That You may have confidence in God to keep you in Him.That you,may know,that you know,that you know,that You Do have Eternal Life NOW and Know You do.

Many people would have you believe,that once we are Born Again,we can forfeit Salvation,by Sinning or not persevering in faith.To me,this is these people are trusting in themselves to keep themselves saved.Most of these people believe that we are in fact saved by GRACE through Faith,not of works lest any one should boast

YET,they,then add works and law keeping to remain saved.

It is My understanding that This idea is the same as the Church of Galatia’s error,to which Paul wrote in the book of Galatians NOTICE how serious Paul considered it.He says it is not a Gospel at all but a PERVERSION of the Gospel of Christ and then he repeats the Exhortation,Admonishment 2 times in consecutive verses

Such people who preach/teach are an ANATHEMA ie,accursed of God.

Galatians 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4  Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.10  For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

We also notice Paul does not preach licentiousness,

ie that This Grace by which we are Saved, by and in which we cannot ever be lost,does not give us a license to sin,that we dont get away with sin and its consequences in this life.This is very often an accusation made by those who are critics of Eternal Security.An accusation that is bearing false witness against Eternal Security, and its teachers,for it IS NOT what Eternal Security,Once Saved Always Saved teaches at all.Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour

Galatians 2:16  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 

Galatians 5:19-21 ;19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Paul’s admonishment against licentiousness We WILL reap what we sow

Gal 6:7-8; 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.8  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Please read in prayer and my prayer for You, as you read, is…….

Ephesians 1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

I love this – BUT GOD

Ephesians 2:3-7; 3 Amog whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 BUT GOD who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Evenwhen we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus

First the very Definition of Eternal,gives us the basis for the Doctrine of Eternal Security

Eternaldefinitionlasting or existing forever; without end.

synonyms: everlasting, never-ending, endless, without end, perpetual, undying, immortal, deathless, indestructible, imperishable, immutable, abiding, permanent, enduring, infinite, boundless, timeless;

Eternal Life because it is LIFE IN CHRIST

Our Lord decisively set the element of time in abeyance, and took His stand upon the fact and quality of life–life endless by its own nature. Of that eternal life He is Himself the guarantee–“Because I live, ye shall live also” (John 14:19).19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also

Eternal Life

The Bible  says that ETERNAL life is a present possession

John 3:36; He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 5:24; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 6:47-51; 47  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 48  I am that bread of life. 49  Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50  This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51  I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand

If we could lose that life from God,then we never had ETERNL LIFE

I John 5:11-12; 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God iseternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Our life is Christ’s life when we are saved

Colossians 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Romans 6:9-10; 9 Knowing  that Christ,being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, unto sin: once ,but in that he liveth, He liveth unto God

I John 1:2 For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us.

Christ cannot die again

Romans 6:9-10Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

We can know We have ETERNAL LIFE

I John 1:2  (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

I John 5:13  13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

God promised eternal life and God cannot lie

I John 2:25;25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

Titus 1:2;In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Numbers 23:19;19  God is not a man, that he should lie;Neither the son of man, that he should repent:Hath he said, and shall he not do it?Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

John 3:14-18;14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God  IS ETERNAL life through Jesus Christ our Lord

We are in Grace and Have peace from God who is now our Father and from Jesus our Lord

Colossians 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ

We have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of the Christ

Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son

Born Again as sons of God –

When we accept Christ we are born again of God

John 1:13;13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John3:3-7; 3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Born Again of INCORRUPTABLE SEED

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

We are passed from death unto life

John 5:2424 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 11:25 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

We have been Redeemed not by corruptible things,but by the BLOOD of Christ

Peter 1:18,19: “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

We have been redeemed from the curse of the law by Christ

Galations 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree

The law is not of Faith

Galatians 3:12  And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 

We are all one in Christ without distinction

Galatians 3:28   There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus

We are in Christ and  therefore of the seed of Abraham,through Faith

Galatians 3:6  Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 

Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ

Galatians 3:18  For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise 

Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise

 We are  Justified by Faith,NOT by the Law

Galatians 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith

We are no longer under a schoolaster but by Faith, Children of God in Christ
Galations 3:25-26 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
We are baptised into Christ and have put on Christ
Galatians 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ
God is now our Father,adopted sons,received the Holy Spirit in our hearts,no longer servants,but heirs of God through Christ

Galatians 4:5-7 ; 5To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.6  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ

WE HAVE become a new creature

II Corinthians 5:17;17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Galatians 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

We are a new creation,with all things new

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

We would have to become unborn to lose our salvation and born a third time to get saved again, which is not mentioned in the Bible.
We also become a son of God

John 1:11-12; 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name

Romans 8:14-17;11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Galatians 3:26;26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus

I John 3:1-2  1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

A son,with a new nature, Christ’s nature

II Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

A New nature by which we receive the fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:22-25 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit

Christ cannot deny himself

II Timothy 2:13;13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Our Spirit is made incorruptible.

I Peter 1:23;23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

I John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Our will is enabled by the Holy Spirit

Philippians 2:12-13 12vWherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

We will follow Christ

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me

After we are saved, God no longer deals with us as sinners but as sons

Hebrews 12:3-11    3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

He chastises US but his chastisement is not payment for sin, it is child-training
God may chastise but the payment for ALL sins was made 2000 years ago on Calvary
Sometimes God may even chastisen us with sickness,even physical death

I Corinthians 5:5; deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord [Jesus.

1 Corinthians 11:3030 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.

Our fellowship with God may change but not the Father-son relationship.

EG.Just as we discipline and chastice our children,when they do wrong,so does God.No matter what Our children do,they could even say,that they disown us,Yet NOTHING changes the fact,We are their father,Nothing changes their DNA,So it now is with our Heavenly Father,Our DNA has been changed,We have the DNA of Christ through the Holy Spirit,which is INCORRUPTABLE The DNA of a NEW Creation

All of our sins were paid for on Calvary and ALL of them are forgiven when we are saved

2 Corinthians 5:21 ;For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 

1 Peter 2:24 ;Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 

1 Peter 3:18; For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 

If we sin,which We all do

1 John 1:8-10 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us

When We do Sin,We are to:

Confess our sins

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

Know we have and advocate with the Father,Jesus Christ

1 John 2:1-2;1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

We are dead to the penalty of Sin and ALIVE unto God through Christ

Romans 6:11  Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

If anyone is bringing Christ into disrepute due to continual sin,while claiming to Saved

Galatians 6:1-2; 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.2  Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

We can overcome sin in our daily walk,by walking in the Spirit and we will not commit the lust of the flesh

Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

What Happens to a Believer’s Sins

In God’s eyes when we get saved we are perfect forever,

Hebrews 10:14 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified

We are Justified,made us as if we had never sinned

Romans 3:24-28;24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Romans 5:1, Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him

Acts 13:3939 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

We are Sanctified

I Corinthians 1:2;Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

1 Corinthians 6:11;And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

II Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Once we are Born Again(Saved) We still live in a sinful body and still sin but these only affect our fellowship with the Father once we are saved

I John 5:11-12;And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Romans 6:23;For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Bible says that God WILL NOT impute (charge up) sin to a believer,any type of sin

Romans 4:8; Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Romans 8:33; Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

II Corinthians 5:19; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

If a justified person could go to hell he was never truly justified

If after being saved a sin or sins could cause one to lose his salvation then all of his sins were not paid for at Calvary and forgiven (washed away) when he trusted Christ and his blood,

Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace

The Bible also says

John 1:29; The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Colossians 2:13;13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

I John 1:7-9 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

John 2:12; I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake

John 3:5; And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, andthe first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

God forgives and forgets

Psalms 32:1; Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Psalms 103:12; As far as the east is from the west,So far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Isaiah 1:18; Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Isaiah 38:17; Behold, for peace I had great bitterness:But thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption:For thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

Isaiah43:25; I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake,And will not remember thy sins.

Micah 7:18-19; 18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Acts 13:38-39;38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Acts 26:18; To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me

Colossians 2:13; And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

Hebrews 8:12; For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

Hebrews 10:17; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

I John 1:7; But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1John 2:12; I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

Every sin, including future sins (remember,all our sins were future when Christ died for them), when we get saved.

What Does it means when We are “In” Jesus Christ? –

When we get saved we are placed into the body of Christ

Romans 12:5; So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

I Corinthians 12:13; For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

Galatians 3:28; There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians2:21-22  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

We become “flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone”

Ephesians 5:30. For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Our soul is “circumcised” from our flesh with a circumcision “made without hands”

Colossians 2:8-14Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

The Bible says that the body (church) will be presented without spot or blemish

Ephesians5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

It cannot be without blemish if pieces have to be removed. Our position is settled: we are mystically seated in heaven already

Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

We are a joint-heir with Christ,a joint heir cannot be disinherited

Roman 8:16-17; 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

We are safe in Jesus’ and God’s hand where cannot be plucked out

John 10:27-30 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.30 I and my Father are one.

The Holy Spirit places us IN Christ

Romans 12:5; So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

I Corinthians 12:13; For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit

Galatians 3:28; There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:21-22 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Just as we were IN Adam before we were saved

1 Corinthians 15:21 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

We are now IN Christ we are safe from condemnation

Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death

We are accepted in the beloved

Ephesians 1:6  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

We are preserved forever

Jude 1;Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

Psalms 37:28; For the Lord loveth judgment,And forsaketh not his saints;They are preserved for ever:But the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

II Timothy 4:18  And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

We are sanctified

I Corinthians 1:2  Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

We are alive forever

I Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

We are a new creature

II Corinthians 5:17; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We are perfect

Colossians 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

We are righteous

II Corinthians 5:21;For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

We have have liberty

Romans 8:2;For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Galatians 2:4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

We have all spiritual blessings.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

We have an inheritance

Ephesians 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Our inheritance is reserved for us in heaven and will not fade away and is Incorruptable and cannot be defiled

1 Peter 1:3-5Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Ephesians 1:13-14;13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Acts 26:18; To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

John 1:13;13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 3:3-7;Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

I Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Our life is HID in Christ

Colossians 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Satan has to get through God and then Christ to get to us, to cause us to be lost again.

If Satan can overcome God and Christ to get one Christian, then he can get all of us because we are all sinners alike

Romans 3:10-12,10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Romans 3:23; For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 14:23; And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

James 4:17; Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

I John 1:8-10If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

If Satan knew there was a way to make a Christian lose his salvation he is subtle enough that he could cause every Christian to lose his salvation

Isaiah 53:9-11 And he made his grave with the wicked,And with the rich in his death;Because he had done no violence,Neither was any deceit in his mouth.10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

Isiaih 59:17;For he put on righteousness as a breastplate,And an helmet of salvation upon his head;And he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,And was clad with zeal as a cloke.

John 8:46;Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

John 18:38; Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

II Corinthians 5:21; For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Hebrews 1:9;Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Hebrews 4:15; For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Hebrews 7:26-28;26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore

Hebrews 9:14;How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

I Peter 1:19;But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

1 Peter 2:22;Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth

I John 3:5.And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

For a believer to go to Hell, Christ and God would have to goto hell

I Thessalonians 1:1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Because we have everything in standing and position that the Lord Jesus Christ has and we are “in” Him.

Romans 6:3; Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

Romans 8:1-2,There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 2:11; But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Romans 12:5; So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

I Corinthians 1:30; But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

II Corinthians 1:21; Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

11 Corinthians 5:17;Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Galatians 3:28; There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:6,And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2:10;For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Colossians 1:28;Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Colossians 2:7,Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Colossians 2:10;And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

I John 4:13;Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

Our security is in a perfect person: Jesus Christ

I Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you

God Keeps Our Salvation –

Throughout the Bible Jesus is called the Saviour

Acts 5:31;Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Acts 13:23; Of this man’s seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:

Ephesians 5:23; For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Philippians 3:20; For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

II Timothy 1:10; But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

Titus 1:3-4; 3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour

Titus 2:13; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ

Titus 3:6; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;

II Peter 1:1; Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

I John 4:14 ; And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.

He Saves to the utmost or He completely saves

Hebrews 7:25 ;Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Eternal security is not a separate doctrine from salvation;

If we are not saved forever then we were never saved at all because Christ saves us from ALL of our sins when we get saved.

Colossians 3:4; When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory

He gives us ETERNAL, EVERLASTING life.

John 3:36; He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him

John 5:24; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 6:47  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 5:51; I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

John 10;28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

He has given us a witness and a record we and make God to be a liar if we dont believe it

I John 5:10,11: “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”

Christ came to save.

Luke 19:10; For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost

John 3:17; For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved

Acts 4:12; Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Titus 2:13-14 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Once we are saved it is God’s responsibility, not ours, to keep our salvation, because we never could.

Just as a believer can never save himself, he can never keep himself.

We are kept “by the power of God”,NOT our Power

I Peter 1:3-5 ;3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which paccording to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptable, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

“HE is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against THAT DAY”

II Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

When we are born again God begins a work in us that He will perform until the day of Jesus Christ

.Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Christ keeps us from falling and will present us faultless to God.Not us

Jude 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

We are confirmed unto the end

I Corinthians 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Christ is the “author and finisher of our faith”

.Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

“Whatever God does, it will be forever and nothing can be put to it or taken from it” which includes our Salvation

Ecclesiastes 3:14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

The security of our soul depends on Christ’s righteousness, not our own

Romans 3:24-27 Being justified freely by his grace rthrough the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forebearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

II Corinthians 5:21; For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Philippians 3:9  ;And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

Romans 6:9-10; Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

I John 1:2 For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;

If sinning in any way could cause one to lose his salvation, then Paul would have lost his, because AFTER he was saved he said he was the chief of sinners.

I Timothy 1:15; This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

Romans 7:21-25 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in imy members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from this body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

We get saved by God’s grace.

Ephesians 2:8-9For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Salvation is Not by what we do

Titus 3:5; Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Our salvation remains by God’s grace, not according to what WE do; we will be saved from wrath THROUGH him.

Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

If we can do something to lose our salvation then God failed and our salvation was not only dependent upon God’s grace, but also upon our behaviour – which is works!

(Doing works in the Lord’s name is not definite evidence of salvation, we must KNOW him as our personal saviour.

Matthew 7:22-23 ;22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity

II Corinthians 5:17; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Galatians 6:15 ;For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

Salvation is a gift, not a wage that is earns

Ephesians 2:8-9; 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 5:18; Therefore as by the offence of one judgment cameupon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

Romans 6:23 ; For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God iseternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

It is obtained, not attained.

Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

It never was deserved and never will be.

If our safety is dependent upon our works then we are really saved by our works and must earn our salvation, which is a direct violation of Scripture and the truth of salvation by God’s grace ONLY

Salvation is Not by Works

Romans 11:6; And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Salvation is Not by the Law

Galatians 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain

A person who believes that he must work to keep his salvation, instead of work because he HAS salvation,

Such a person needs to make sure he is ONLY trusting the Saviour Jesus Christ to take him to heaven and not Jesus Christ plus his good works; he needs to understand how to be saved and what salvation really is.

John 3:3, Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 18,36; He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him

John 5:24; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 6:28-29,28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

John 6:47; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life

John 14:6; Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Acts 16:31; And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house

Romans 5:1;Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 10:9-10,That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 10:13; For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Galatians 3:22, But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

Galations 3:26; For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:8-9;For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

I John 5:11-13And this is the record, that God hath given to us eteral life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Jesus is Faithful –

Not only are we kept by God’s power but we CANNOT come into condemnation

John 5:24; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

We are NOT condemned

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God

Our intercessor is Jesus Christ and He pleads our case when we are saved;that is why we can never be condemned again with the penalty of our ALREADY for given sins
OR ELSE CHRISTS INTERCESSION IS NOT SUFFECIENT ENOUGH

Romans 8:33-34; 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It isChrist that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

I Timothy 2:5; For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Hebrews 4:15-16 ; 15 For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come bodly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

If we lose our salvation we are condemned again and the Scriptures are not true

John 3:18; He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Once we are saved and given to Christ

John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out

We cannot be lost again because ALL that God gives Him,Christ will lose NOTHING

John 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

We will NEVER die

John 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

We will live forever

John 3:36;He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

John 5:24; Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 6:47, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:51; I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand

Christ will IN NO WISE (under ANY circumstances) cast out any that come to him

John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

All that get saved will NEVER perish,Never means NRVER

John 3:16;For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 10:27-30 7 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father,which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and my Father are one.

Christ will NEVER leave us or forsake us

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and becontent with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

NOTHING (including ourselves) can separate us from the love of God IN Christ

Romans 8:35-3 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Nothing of Creaton can seperate us from God.WE ARE OF CREATION

Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other CREATURE, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

ALL believers are IN Christ.

Romans 6:9-10Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

I John 1:For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;

The Holy Spirit, Is Our Seal –

God gives the Holy Spirit to every believer when we get saved as the earnest down payment

John 7:38-3938 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39 (But tthis spake he of uthe Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.

Ephesians 1:12-13; 12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

I John 4:13  Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit

As the earnest down payment of His promise to take us to Heaven and give us an inheritance

II Corinthians 1:22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

11 Corinthians 5:5 Now he that hath wrought us for the sel same thing is God,who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

Ephesians 1:13-14  In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, gunto the praise of His Glory

Romans 6:9-10; Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin xonce: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God

I John 1:2(For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

We could only be unsaved if we do not have the Holy Spirit

Romans 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Which means we would have to lose the Holy Spirit to get lost again;

BUT

the Bible says we are SEALED by and with the Holy Spirit UNTIL the day of redemption

II Corinthians 1:21-22;21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

Ephesians 1:12-13;12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

The Holy Spirit can be quenched

I Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit

or grieved,BUT not Lost

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

The Sinful Believer and the False Christian

We will not be perfect until we get to heaven, and we may be disobedient, but we cannot lose our salvation.

We can still fall, but not so as to be eternally lost, for the Lord upholds us

Proverbs 24:16; For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:

But the wicked shall fall into mischief

Psalms 37:24-25  24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:For the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.25  I have been young, and now am old;Yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,Nor his seed begging bread.

Psalms 145:14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall,And raiseth up all those that be bowed down

We are still tempted and tried

I Corinthians 10:13;There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

James 1:2-4;My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

I Peter 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Christ

1 Peter5:10; But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

II Peter 2:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance

Tempted As Jesus was tempted

Matthew 4:1;Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

But only for the purpose of strengthening us and making us more of what the Lord wants us to be. Our works may not stand the fiery test of the judgement,BUT our Salvation will be

II Thessalonians 1:7-10;And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day

I Peter 4:12-13; Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding Joy

II Peter 3:9-13 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

I Corinthians 3:13-15;13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Not all who claim to be saved are.

Not all church members are saved. If they are saved, they will eventually show a change and false professors of Christ eventually fall away

I John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

Just make sure you are trusting ONLY Jesus and HIS righteousness to get You to Heaven

I Corinthians 1:30; But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

II Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him

Not YOUR faith or a prayer or work(s), JUST believe/trust in Christ To Save You to the saving of the soul

Ephesians 1:12-14 12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Dont’t depend on your works or law keeping,being good enough,going to church,doing good deeds,and later have Jesus say Depart from me,I NEVER KNEW YOU,not i once knew you,BUT I NEVER KNEW YOU

Matthew 7:21-22; 21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’

.Hebrews 10:38-39 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Instructions to all of us for living

Ephesians 6:1-9 1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 4. And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. 5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; 6.Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 7.With good will doing service, as to the Lord and not to men: 8.Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. 9.And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

Finally be Strong in the Might of the LORD and STAND

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

No matter our lot in Life,Be Ministers of the Gospel The GOOD NEWS

Ephesians 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. 21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things: 22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts. 23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.

Be NOT Ashamed of the Gospel for it is the (Greek: DUNIMUS,dynamite like,explosive like) POWER of GOD unto Salvation,to those who believe,First to the Jew and also to the Greek

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek

Finally an encouragement to trust completely in God for your Salvation now and until the end of your life here on earth.

Jude 24-25 Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
