“Can ‘You’ = ‘Lose “Your” Salvation?’ – 101”…Blog.
“Can ‘You’ = ‘Lose “Your” Salvation?’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (John 1:12) However, = to ‘All’ = who received [John 12:44] Him [Jesus], = to those believing [John 7:38-39] in His name, = He gave authority [privilege] to become God's children [2Chronicles 6:32-33],
There are ‘Many’… different “Christian” denominations. Not “All”… believe the Bible; as the Holy Word of God. Not “All” that say they are Christians… say they are ‘Born Again’; by “God’s Holy Spirit”. Where does that leave the person… ‘Searching’ for the “Truth about God”…? “Many” seldom if ever; read & study the Holy Word of God. So where does that leave the “Sinner”… looking for “Truth”…? Can the Blind… lead the Blind…?
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) A person who isn't spiritual = doesn't ‘accept’ the things of God's Spirit, = for they are ‘nonsense’ to him. = He ‘cannot’ understand them = because = they are spiritually encoded.
*** (Acts 17:11) And = these were more noble = than those of Thessalonica, = in that they ‘received’ the Word = with all readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = ‘daily’ = to see if those things were so.
*** (Psalms 51:10-11-12) Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
(Psalms 51:11) Cast me not away from Your presence, and take not = Your Holy Spirit = from me.
(Psalms 51:12) Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
“King David”… under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, wrote this Psalm. In the ‘OT Economy’, the Holy Spirit came upon certain men… for God’s–‘Uses & Purposes’. But the Psalmist and the OT Prophets; Knew this Fact. By record… Elisha [2Kings 2:9] was given a “Double Portion” of God’s Holy Spirit… by Elijah; before he was carried to heaven in a “Chariot of Fire” [2Kings 2:11]. “King Saul”, the first King of Israel, was first ‘Anointed’ by Samuel and given the Holy Spirit [1Samuel 15:1]! Saul sinned; and in his ‘Disobedience’ to God; and was given an… ‘Evil Spirit’ [1Samuel 16:14] from the Lord.
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], = as the Scripture [Luke 24:44-45] has said, = will have rivers of living water [John 4:14] = flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] =said this about the [Holy] Spirit, = whom those = who were believing in Him = were to receive. = For the Spirit was not yet present, = because Jesus = had not yet been glorified.
*** (Acts 15:8-9) “God”, = Who ‘knows’ = everyone's heart, = showed them = He approved = by giving them = the “Holy Spirit”, = just as He did = to us [Acts 2:30-33].
(Acts 15:9) He [God] = made no distinction between them [Gentiles] and us [Jews], = because He = cleansed their hearts = by Faith.
*** (Galatians 3:1-2-3) O foolish Galatians, = who ‘bewitched’ you = ‘not’ to obey = the Truth, = to whom before your eyes = Jesus Christ was written = among you = crucified?
(Gal 3:2) This only = I would learn from you: = Did you = receive = the [Holy] Spirit = by the ‘works’ of the law, = or = by the ‘hearing’ = of Faith?
(Gal 3:3) Are you so foolish? = Having begun in the Spirit, = do you now = ‘perfect’ yourself in the flesh?
*** (Ephesians 1:7-to-14) In Him [Jesus] = we have redemption = through His blood, = the forgiveness of sins, = according to the riches of His grace,
(Eph 1:8) which He = caused to abound toward us = in all wisdom = and understanding;
(Eph 1:9) having made known to us = the mystery of His will [Word], = according to His good pleasure = which He purposed in Himself [John 12:44-to-50],
(Eph 1:10) for an administration = of the fullness of times, = to head up = all things in Christ, = both the things in Heaven, = and the things on earth, = even in Him,
(Eph 1:11) in Whom [Christ] = also we have been chosen to an inheritance, = being predestinated = according to the purpose of Him = Who works all things = according to the counsel = of His own will,
(Eph 1:12) for us to be = to the praise of His glory, = who previously had trusted in Christ;
(Eph 1:13) in Whom also you, = hearing the Word of Truth, = the gospel of our salvation, = in Whom also believing, = you were sealed = with the Holy Spirit of promise [John 7:38-39],
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest = of our inheritance, = to the redemption of the purchased possession, = to the praise of His glory.
*** (1Corinthians 12:13) For also by one [Holy] Spirit = we are ‘All’ = baptized into one body [of Christ], = whether Jews or Greeks [Gentiles], = whether bond [slave] or free, = even ‘All’ = were made to drink = into one [Holy] Spirit.
All those of God… the God of the Bible… ‘knew & understood’… that “Salvation” = is the “Holy Spirit!” The NT believer has only to search the Scriptures! “Replete Throughout”, the Holy Word of God… in the Scriptures OT & NT; this Truth can be clearly “Seen!” That is why ‘one’; must “Trust the Scriptures”… “Above & Beyond”… Any ‘Denominational’ or ‘Church’… Teaching! Even test ‘All’ teaching; with the Scriptures… ‘Even this Blog!’ Many have been ‘wrongly’ taught… that they can somehow… ‘lose’ the Holy Spirit!
*** (Jude 1:17) But you, beloved, = remember the words spoken before = by the apostles = of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(Jud 1:18) because they ‘told’ you = that at the ‘last time’ = there will be ‘mockers’ = according to their lusts, = leading = ungodly lives.
(Jud 1:19) These are those = setting themselves apart, = animal-like ones, = “Not” = having the [Holy] Spirit.
*** (Romans 8:9) But you = are not in the flesh, = but in the Spirit, = if the Spirit of God = dwells in you. = But if = “Anyone” = has ‘Not’ = the Spirit of Christ, = he is “None” = of His.
… “The Holy Spirit”… is the ‘Identification’… of “God’s ‘True’ Children”…!
That is what… Being “Born Again”… that is…being born = ‘From Above’;… is ‘All’ about. Surely you have read the Scriptures…? You had an earthly birth… but before you can become “God’s Child”… you must be “Born Spiritually”; by His Holy Spirit…! You ‘cannot’ understand the Holy Word of God… ‘without’… His Holy Spirit! Remember… ‘1Corinthians 2:14’ at the beginning of this blog? All the Holy Word of God… is simply ‘foolishness’… to those; that ‘Do Not Have’ = “His Holy Spirit”…!
*** (Titus 1:15) To the pure = all things are pure. = But to those = who are defiled and unbelieving = ‘nothing’ is pure, = but = even their mind = and conscience = is ‘defiled’.
*** (Hebrews 4:2) For also we = have had the gospel preached, = as well as them. = “But the Word” = preached = ‘did not’ = profit them, = ‘Not’ = being mixed with ‘Faith’ = in those = who ‘heard’ it.
*** (Matthew 13:19) When = “Anyone” = hears = the Word of the kingdom = and = does not understand [believe] it, = then the wicked one [Satan] comes = and = ‘catches away’ = that [Word] which was sown = in his heart. = This is the seed sown by the wayside.
What about Salvation…? For those that ‘do not’ know… “IT”; is the Fulfillment of God’s Promise to Abraham and to ‘All’ those… who would trust in the Passover [1Corinthians 5:5] Lamb of God; [John 1:29-36] Christ Jesus the Messiah. All those Passover sacrifices of the OT… pointed forward to that ‘One Sacrifice’… For “All” SIN/SINS… for “All” = Time and Eternity! Are you ‘Dead or Alive’…? Surely you know…? Physically you know… but do you “Know Spiritually”…?
*** (Hebrews 12:2) looking to = Jesus [Christ] = the “Author” = and = “Finisher” of our faith, = Who for the joy that was set before Him = endured the cross, = despising the shame, = and sat down at the right of the throne of God.
*** (Philippians 1:6) being confident = of this very thing, = that He = Who has begun a good work = in you = will perform it = until = the day of Jesus Christ,
*** (Hebrews 5:8-9) though being a Son, = yet He [Jesus] = learned obedience = by the things = which He suffered.
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected, = He [Jesus] became = the Author of = “Eternal” = Salvation = to all those = who = ‘obey’ Him,
*** (Revelation 20:10-15) And the Devil = who deceived them = was cast into = the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, = where the beast and the false prophet were. = And he will be tormented day and night = forever = and ever.
(Rev 20:11) And I saw = a great white throne, = and Him sitting on it, = from Whose face = the earth and the heaven = fled away. = And a place = was ‘not’ found for them.
(Rev 20:12) And I saw the dead, = the small = and the great, = stand before God. = And books were opened, = and another book was opened, = which is the Book of Life. = And the dead = were judged out of those things = which were written in the books, = according to = their works.
(Rev 20:13) And the sea = gave up the dead in it. = And death and hell = delivered up the dead in them. = And = ‘each one’ of them = was judged = according to their works [deeds].
(Rev 20:14) And = death and hell = were cast into the Lake of Fire. = This is the second death.
(Rev 20:15) And if anyone = was not found = having been ‘written’ = in the Book of Life, = he [she] was cast into = the Lake of Fire.
Do you mean to tell “Everyone”… that you ‘cannot’ be sure; “IF”… you can ‘lose’ your Salvation…? Just what kind of ‘god’ or ‘church’… do you believe ‘In’…? Surely it is “NOT”… the God of the Bible… Who has given Us… His Holy Word; for complete assurance…? Surely “IF”; one ‘can’ lose the “Holy Spirit”… “You were Never Really”… ‘Born Again’… by “His Holy Spirit!” You simply have, the ‘same religion’ of the… “MANY”… of… “Matthew 7:21-22-23”…!
*** (1John 2:19-20-21) They = ‘went out’ = from us, = but = they were = ‘Not’ of us; = for “If” they were of us, = they would have ‘continued’ with us. = But they went out = so that it might be ‘revealed’ = that they were = ‘Not’ = all of us.
(1Jn 2:20) But you = have an anointing [Holy Spirit] = from the Holy One, = and you know all things.
(1Jn 2:21) I have ‘not written’ = to you = because you ‘do not’ = know the Truth, = but because you know it, = and = ‘know that’ = No Lie = is of The Truth.
*** (Hebrews 12:7-8) If you endure chastening, = God deals with you as with sons, = for what son is he = whom the Father does not chasten?
(Heb 12:8) But if = you are ‘without chastisement’, = of which ‘All’ [say they] are partakers, = then you = are Bastards [Illegitimate] = and = ‘not’ sons.
What is ‘Your’–“Final Conclusion” [Answer]…? You have the ‘Scriptures’ in this Blog; many others, in the Bible… to make that ‘Spiritual Determination!’ Perhaps, forsake your human thinking and wrong religious training… and “Trust Only” = “The Holy Word of God”…? … “Nothing More”… and… “Nothing Less”…!
*** (Romans 8:14-17) For as ‘many’ = as are led = by the [Holy] Spirit of God, = they ‘Are’ = the sons of God.
(Rom 8:15) For you = ‘have not’ received = the [earthly] spirit of bondage = again to fear, = but you have received = the [Holy] Spirit of adoption = by which we cry, = Abba [Daddy], = Father!
(Rom 8:16) The [Holy] Spirit Himself = bears witness = with our spirit = that we ‘Are’ = the children of God.
(Rom 8:17) And = ‘If’ = we are children, = ‘Then’ = we are heirs; = heirs of God = and = joint-heirs with Christ; = so that = ‘If’ = we suffer with Him, = we may ‘Also’ = be glorified together.
*** (Hebrews 2:11-15) For both He = Who sanctifies = and ‘they’ = who are sanctified = are = ‘All’ = of One, = for which cause = He [Jesus] = is ‘not ashamed’ = to call them brothers,
(Heb 2:12) saying, = "I [Jesus] = will declare Your Name [God] = to My brothers; = in the midst of the assembly = I will sing praise to You."
(Heb 2:13) And again, = "I [Jesus] = will put My trust in Him [God]." = And again, = "Behold Me and the children = whom God = has given Me [Jesus]."
(Heb 2:14) Since then the children = have partaken of = flesh and blood, = He [Jesus] = also Himself = likewise partook of the same; = that through death = He [Jesus] = might ‘destroy’ him = who had the power of death (that is, the Devil),
(Heb 2:15) and = deliver those = who through = ‘fear of death’ = were = ‘All’ their lifetime = subject to bondage.
