“Can ONE: be ‘Turned Away’ from Salvation in Christ? – 201” …Blog. [2/2]

“Can ONE: be ‘Turned Away’ from Salvation in Christ? – 201” …Blog. [2/2]

Continuing on this same topic… their Salvation in Christ… is the Responsibility of the Holy Spirit…! God chooses to use those of the Body of Christ… ONLY: as His messengers. The Actual work of Salvation is a… TRANSACTION between God and Man [Acts 15:8-9] Done… “STRICLY BY HIM”…! Did You know that GOD gives REPENTANCE…? Even though HE uses us to Preach IT…!

*** (2Timothy 2:25) in meekness instructing those who oppose, if perhaps God will give them Repentance to the acknowledging of the Truth,
(2Tim 2:26) and that they awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, [2Corinthains 4:3-4] so as to do the will of that one.

Recently, I had someone… say to me, “What about those that ‘do not’ come to Christ, did Christ die for their sins also…? Is there a ‘Limited Atonement’… “Only” for those that come to Christ Jesus? Absolutely Yes! Perhaps I may share with you my understanding of this fact?

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me [Jesus]: Draw [Compel] him: and I [Jesus] will raise him up at the last day.

*** (John 6:37) "ALL” that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in no way cast out. [Romans 8:9]

*** (John 5:39-40) You examine the Scriptures carefully: Because you suppose = that in them you have eternal life.  Yet they testify about Me [Jesus].
(John 5:40) But you are ‘NOT’ willing to come to Me [Jesus] to have life. [John 7:38-39]

1.       I give you a check for… “10,000 dollars!”
2. You thank me and ‘Never’ cash that check!
3. You think that it is ‘Charity’ but I tell you it is “Grace” with no strings attached.
4. Still… you want to succeed on your own, with the help of no one.
5. You Die…!
6. Your heirs close your estate and find my check to you for the money.
7. They go to the Bank… and try and cash my check, made out to You.
8. The bank informs them… sorry the person is Dead; and the funds are “Non-Transferable!”

That is a ‘word picture’… of “Salvation”. God calls “All” mankind to Himself. Many REFUSE: His gift of Love, Mercy & Grace as payment for their… “Sin/Sins.” Their ‘Refusal’ to cash their check, the… “Gift of God”… will leave One… without the ‘eternal’ payment for their… “Sin/Sins!” This… “Atonement by Christ Jesus” for YOU… is paid for by the… “Death, Burial and Resurrection of Himself”…! But it is Rejected by “MANY!” Where then do You expect to spend eternity… after spitting in the face of God and refusing His gift of Love, Mercy & Grace… to You? This is the Gospel… that we communicate as… “Evangelism = You are Witnesses of these Things… “Luke 24:44-to-49”

*** (Hebrews 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 Spirit of grace?

*** (Luke 24:44-to-48) And He [Jesus] said to them, These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms about Me.
(Luke 24:45) and He opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.
(Luke 24:46) And He said to them, So it is written, and so it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
(Luke 24:47) and that “REPENTANCE” and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(Luke 24:48) And you are Witnesses of these things.

*** (Revelation 20:15) And if anyone was NOT found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire.

ONE MORE TIME…? *** (Hebrews 10:29-30-31) How much more severe a punishment do you think that person deserves who tramples on God's Son, treats as common the blood of the covenant by which it was sanctified, and insults the Spirit of grace?
(Heb 10:30) For we know the one who said, "Vengeance belongs to me; I will pay them back," and again, "The Lord will judge his people."
(Heb 10:31) It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God!

*** (Hebrews 9:27) And as it is appointed to men once to die; but [immediately] after this the judgment, [Luke 16:23]

“The ‘HELL’ about the Lake of Fire – 101” …Blog.

*** (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].

About NOW… someone begins speaking about their… “Water Baptism”…! Sorry, that and physical Church membership have… “NOTHING” to do with Salvation…!

QUESTION: (Ephesians 4:5) One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
Is this ONE Baptism “Water” or “Spirit”…?

*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]

*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His Mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; Not in wisdom of words; Lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

*** (Romans 11:6) But if by Grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.

*** (Jude 1:19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual: having NOT the [Holy] Spirit. [Romans 8:9]

Water Baptism and Salvation – 101 Blog.      

Why do People… CLAIM to Know Christ Jesus as their Savior & Lord…? And then are Completely Ignorant about HOW Salvation comes About…?
*** (Galatians 2:16) Knowing that a man is “Not Justified”: -> by works of the Law: -> but through Faith in Jesus Christ; even we believed in Jesus Christ: -> that we might be Justified by the faith in Christ: -> and ‘Not’ by works of the Law. For ALL flesh -> will ‘Not’ be justified: ->by works of law.

*** (Galatians 3:11) Now it is obvious that No One is Justified in the sight of God by the LAW, because "The righteous will live by Faith."

*** (Galatians 3:2-3) This ONLY I would learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, OR by hearing of faith?
(Gal 3:3) Are you so Foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, do you NOW perfect yourself in the flesh?

“MANY”… miss that the Holy Spirit... “John 7:38-39”... and the Spiritual Baptism... “1Corinthians 12:13 & Ephesians 4:5”... is a “Divine Transaction”: Done by “GOD ALONE!” Did ‘Some’ purposely miss.... “Acts 15:8-9”... where GOD sees their “Hearts”... and HE ‘Only’... gives them: His Holy Spirit… “Ephesians 4:30 & Romans 8:9 & 2Corinthains 1:21-22”!

“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.

Perhaps… “One More Time”…?

*** (Hebrews 5:9) And being perfected, He [Jesus] became the Author of eternal salvation to all those who obey Him, [John 7:38-39]

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which hath sent Me: Draw [Compel] him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (John 6:37) "ALL” that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in no way cast out. [Hebrews 13:5]

Those who are NOT: BORN AGAIN by the Holy Spirit of GOD... Cannot Understand the BIBLE...! Consequently they PULL... Bible Verses... “OUT of Context”… and then: “MOCK God and His Holy Word”...!

*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does “NOT”… receive the things [WORD] of the Spirit of God; for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; Neither can he = Know = them; because they are spiritually discerned.

“Mockers & Unbelief: Without ‘EXCUSE’ – 101” …Blog.

During my Life in Christ for some 35+ years… I have heard all sorts of excuses by Pseudo Christians [?]… about WHY they are FEARFULL of Sharing His Holy Word…! The LIE of Satan is that “Sharing the Word of God: You will… “TURN OFF SOMEONE”… from Salvation”..! Often times I find myself being STILL: and praying that the LORD would use the… Sword of the Spirit… to convict the sinner of His Sin! Why then are YOU… “Fearful in Sharing”… His Holy Word…? Recently a mother told me that Satan had taken her SON away from Christianity. I shared with her that HE probable was “NEVER” Truly Born Again… as it is Written: *** (1Jn 2:19) 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.

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You [LORD] have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.

*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].

*** (Proverbs 4:7) Wisdom is the main thing; get wisdom; and with all your getting get Understanding.
