“Once Saved = Always Saved – 101”…Blog.
*** (Acts 7:51) O stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so you do.
*** (2Timothy 4:10) For Demas has ‘forsaken’ me [Paul], having loved this present world, and he has departed to Thessalonica. Crescens went to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
*** (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’ 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.
“FIRST”… Please allow me to ask “YOU”… a ‘Simple Question!’ Can “YOU”; a ‘finite’ human being… ‘Know’ the “Infinite God”… “Without His Holy Spirit”…? Many are “Confused” about the topic of ‘Eternal Salvation’ = “OSAS”… simply because they; “Believe Human Teachings”… rather than God; “Who cannot Lie”… and His Holy Word! “Few if Any”… will get alone with the Holy Word of God… and seek “HIM” = with ‘their’ Whole Heart! Instead they follow some ‘Church’ or ‘Denomination’ or some ‘Preacher’. It is simply because; they have “Never ‘Been’ Born Again”… by God’s Holy Spirit! Imagine that, a ‘Finite Human’… telling an “Infinite God”… that they can Lose God’s Gift of Salvation, Love & Mercy…! Just ‘Who’… do “You” really think you… “Are?” Greater than “GOD?” …”Not!”
*** (Numbers 23:19) God is ‘not’ a man that He should lie, ‘neither’ the son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and ‘shall’ He not do it? Or has He spoken, and ‘shall’ He not make it good?
*** (Isaiah 55:8) For My thoughts are ‘not’ your thoughts, ‘nor’ your ways My ways, says Jehovah [God].
(Isa 55:9) For as the heavens are ‘higher’ than the earth, so are My ways ‘higher’ than your ways, and My thoughts ‘than’ your thoughts.
*** (Jeremiah 29:11-12-13) For I know the plans which I [God] am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and ‘not’ of evil; to give you a future and a hope.
(Jer 29:12) Then you shall ‘call’ on Me, and you shall go and pray to Me, and I will ‘listen’ to you.
(Jer 29:13) And you shall ‘seek’ Me and ‘find’ Me, when you search for Me with ‘all’ your heart.
*** (John 6:44) No one can come to Me [Jesus] unless the Father [God], Who has sent Me draw him, and I [Jesus] will raise him up ‘at’ the last day.
*** (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 [or Not].
“The Holy Scriptures”… are our ‘Final & Only’ Authority; when it comes to “Matters of the Heart!” Because it is in the ‘Heart’… which with Mankind believes or rejects… “God and His ‘divine’ plan of salvation!” Some church or preacher… cannot override GOD and “His Holy Word”. Why do you think that there are so many ‘warnings’ in the Scriptures… about “False Teachings”; concerning God?” That faith to believe God and His Holy Word… comes from God alone! Salvation in Christ Jesus… only comes with our response to His call. Once you ‘adopt’ the mindset… that you will simply ‘believe’ God and His Word; ‘above’ all others… you have taken the ‘First Step!’ Unless you do that; you will continue to unbelief as ‘Finite Man’… before you believe an “Infinite God!”
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written that “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God.”
*** (John 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word, and NOT merely hearers who Deceive themselves.
*** (2Peter 2:1) But there were ‘also’ false prophets among the people, ‘even as’ there will be false teachers ‘among’ you, who secretly will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.
(2Pet 2:2) And ‘many’ will follow their pernicious ways, and because of them the way of truth will be evil spoken of.
*** (2Co 11:13) For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, ‘transforming’ themselves into the apostles of Christ.
(2Co 11:14) Did not ‘even’ Satan marvelously transform himself ‘into’ an angel of light?
(2Co 11:15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers ‘also’ transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose ‘end’ shall be according to their works.
“Eternal Salvation”… your “Devine Faith” in the Finished Work of Redemption by Christ Jesus… is ‘always’ a matter of the Heart and ‘not’ only the mind. Have you ‘not’ read in… “Matthew 7:21-22-23”…about the “MANY”… that Christ Jesus said… “I Never Knew You!” Their belief was… “Only a ‘head’ belief”… and ‘not’ one of the “Heart!” Do you ‘not’ know… that it is “GOD”… Who sees your ‘Heart Response’… and then gives that ‘True Believer’… the “Sealing” of His Holy Spirit…? Once Again… ‘Trust ONLY’… the Holy Scriptures: The Truth of God! Why else do you think… there are ‘So Very Many Denominations?’ It is because they “Don’t Believe”… the Holy Word of God! Salvation is “NOT”… church membership… but an Issue of Your Finite Human Heart… being Right; with the “Only Infinite God”… according to His Holy Word!
*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He 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.
*** (Ephesians 1:12-13-14) for us to be to the praise of His [God] 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,
(Eph 1:14) Who is the earnest of our inheritance, to the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
*** (Acts 15:8-9) And God, Who knows the hearts, bore them witness, giving them the Holy Spirit, even as to us.
(Acts 15:9) And He put no difference between us and them [Jew & Gentile], purifying their hearts by faith.
*** (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?
(Jer 17:10) I Jehovah search the heart, I try the reins, even to give to each man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.
*** (Romans 10:9-to-13) Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
(Rom 10:10) For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.
(Rom 10:11) For the Scripture says, "Everyone believing on Him shall not be put to shame."
(Rom 10:12) For there is no difference both of Jew and of Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call on Him.
(Rom 10:13) For everyone, "whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved."
*** (1Corinthians 2:12-13-14) But we ‘have not’ received the spirit of the world, but the [Holy] Spirit from God, so that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God.
(1Co 2:13) These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
(1Co 2:14) But the natural man ‘does not’ receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are ‘foolishness’ to him; neither can he ‘know them’, because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (Romans 8:14-to-17) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
(Rom 8:15) For you ‘have not’ received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the [Holy] Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba, Father!
(Rom 8:16) The 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.
*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one [Holy] Spirit we are all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one [Holy] Spirit.
*** (Ephesians 4:4-to-7) There is one body and one [Holy] Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling,
(Eph 4:5) one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
(Eph 4:6) one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all.
(Eph 4:7) But to every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
The Anointing – 101 Blog… about the Holy Spirit
Those that “Reject God”… and His Holy Word; will answer to Him in the “Last Day!” The Holy Word of God… will “Judge Them”… just as Christ Jesus said in… “John 12:44-to-50!” He ‘will not’ use something some “Church or Preacher has ‘Wrongly’ Said!” He will ‘Only’ use the “Sword” [Hebrews 4:12-13]… and the “Hammer” [Jeremiah 23:29]… of His Holy Word. Christ Jesus will accept ‘No Excuses’… as His Judgment is “Final & True!” The Holy Spirit is God’s Validation of His ‘real’ children. That is what being “Born Again” is all about! Do you ‘not’ know about: “God’s Command”… ‘To Every Human Being’… “TO REPENT”…? “Acts 17:30-31” One sure sign that one is ‘Not a Child of God’… is the Absence of God’s Holy Spirit…!
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (Romans 8:9) But you are not in the flesh, but in the [Holy] Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone ‘has not’ the Spirit of Christ, he is ‘none’ of His.
*** (Jude 1:19) These are those setting themselves apart, animal-like ones, not having the [Holy] Spirit.
*** (Acts 8:19-20-21) saying, Give me this power also, that on whomever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit.
(Act 8:20) But Peter said to him, May your silver perish with you, because you have thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
(Act 8:21) You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God.
Simply believe GOD… and His Holy Word… and be Born Again, by His Holy Spirit! Or believe that ‘Church’ or ‘Preacher’ or ‘Other Teaching’… and be read to be Judged; by God’s Holy Word and end up… in that Lake of Fire… for ever & ever… for “Rejecting God’s Way!”
*** (Hebrews 10:28-to-31) He who despised Moses' Law died without mercy on the word of two or three witnesses.
(Heb 10:29) Of how much ‘worse’ punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy of ‘punishment’, the one who has ‘trampled’ the Son of God, and who has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an ‘unholy thing’, and has ‘insulted’ the [Holy] Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know Him [God] Who has said, "Vengeance belongs to Me, I will repay, says the Lord." And again, "The Lord shall judge His people."
(Heb 10:31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
