Thank God that he gives us Eternal security and not Eternal insecurity. Jesus said “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out.” ( John 6:37).There you have it from the Lord himself. He said he will in no way cast you out once you have come to Jesus and accepted him as your Savior. Once he is in your heart you are “sealed unto the day of redemption.” (Ephesians 4:30 ). “If we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.” (Hebrews 10:26). In other words you can’t get saved again. It’s like putting Jesus back on the cross if you say you lost your salvation, and “put him to an open shame,” (Hebrews 6:6b). Jesus Christ died once, not again and again. It’s a very serious thing to doubt your salvation or think you lost your salvation. It’s like saying, The sacrifice that Jesus made for you on the cross wasn’t good enough, if you have to keep yourself saved. Then why did you need to get saved in the first place if you have to keep getting saved over and over again and your own good works can keep you saved ? I would have to ask Jesus to come back into my heart many times every day if that were true, that I could loose my salvation. You might as well hide out in some monastery somewhere way off in the mountains, and try and keep yourself saved by your own good works, and that wouldn’t even work. “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away.” (Isaiah 64:6). “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.” (Ephesians 2:8,& 9). “work out your own salvation, with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12b ).This verse is one of the favorite verses used by people who preach that you can loose your salvation, but they leave off the very next verse which says, “For it is God that worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” (Philippians 2:13 ). “If I justify myself, my own mouth shall condemn me; If I say, I am perfect, it will also prove me perverse.”(Job 9:20).You don’t have to worry about going to hell, once you are saved. Remember it’s not your works that ‘save you, but you do have to work for your rewards. You can’t keep yourself saved anymore than you can save yourself in the first place. “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance;”.(Hebrews 6: 4-6a). It is impossible to be saved twice because you can never loose your salvation once you are saved ! “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”(Hebrews 13:5).There are a lot of wonderful truths that you can learn from these teachings, but this message is perhaps one of the most important of all !
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
