Welcome to our website

ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED??

Some people believe that true believers can fall from faith, into such terrible sins that will void justification. And, they believe this happens often.

I simply CANNOT go along with this way of thinking. I believe that the Lamb of God takes away sin from those who believe and trust in Him (John 1:29). Some sins seem bigger and worse TO US than others because their outcome is more serious. Murder seems TO US to be worse than hatred, but not to God (1 John 3:15). Adultery seems worse TO US than bad thoughts, but not to God (Mat. 5:28). ALL sin, no matter what, makes us sinners, and ALL sin cuts us off from our Holy God. ALL sin leads to death, even seemingly little sins such as white lies, bad thoughts, etc., and the seemingly LITTLE sin of Adam and Eve (Gen.3:1-6), or the seemingly LITTLE sin of Moses (Num. 20:11; Deut. 34:5-6) because it disqualifies us from living with God, no matter how big or small it seems TO US. ALL sin separates us from God, but they ALL can be forgiven. I believe ALL our sins, past, present and future are covered by the Blood of Jesus. When we commit our lives to Christ and thus identify ourselves with Him, His death becomes ours. He has paid the penalty for our sins, ALL our sins, and His Blood has purified us. His righteousness is applied to us.

1 Cor. 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: [KJV] God alone made it possible for us to be in Christ Jesus. Only Jesus can make us acceptable to God. Only Jesus can make us pure and holy by applying His righteousness to us, and only Jesus gave Himself to purchase our freedom.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [KJV] HOW can anyone possibly have "peace" in their heart and soul if they think they can lose their salvation???

John 1:12-13 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: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [KJV] ALL who believe in Jesus and trust and accept Him into their heart and lives, become children of God (spiritually). Jesus has the right and the power to make this possible! We are reborn, and this amazing mystery comes only from God! NOW . . . IF we are children of God through Christ Jesus, we are His children for eternity! We are NOT His child today, then sin and He disowns us as His child. First of all, WHAT sin would make God to throw us out of His family? Remember, God hates ALL sin, even what we consider "little ones." So in reality, if sin would cause God to throw us away . . . we would never be His child, because He is so absolutely pure and holy, we always do something to displease Him or anger Him in some way. BUT, when we trust in His only begotten Son to save us, and apply His righteousness to us, we can stop worrying. We are His child forever! BUT . . . when we sincerely believe, trust and accept Jesus and what He did for us on the cross, His precious Blood washes us and makes us clean. Once this happens, when God looks down on us, (His TRUE children), He no longer sees our sin, He sees the precious Blood of Jesus, and He will NEVER turn His Back on that! But, beware, God knows if you are really sincere about your decision for Christ. He knows your heart!

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: [KJV] Again, HOW can we have "peace" if we are worried about losing our salvation? Once saved, always saved!

1 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; [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: [KJV] A slave was "redeemed" when someone paid money to buy his or her freedom. God redeemed us from the tyranny of sin, not with money, but with the precious Blood of His own Son. We CANNOT escape from sin and its penalty on our own; only the life of Godís Son can free us.

Col. 2:13-14 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; [KJV] We were dead because of our sins and because our sinful nature was not yet cut away. But God made us alive with Christ. His wrath against us is gone. He forgave ALL our sins. He canceled the charges against us. He took them and destroyed them by nailing them to Christís cross.

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. [KJV] Once for all time He (Jesus) took His Blood into that Most Holy Place, NOT the blood of goats and calves. He took His own precious lifeís Blood, and with it He secured our salvation forever.

Ephes. 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; [KJV] He is so rich in kindness that He purchased our freedom through the Blood of His Son, and ALL our sins (past, present and future) are forgiven.

Hebrews 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? [KJV] Think how much more terrible the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God and have treated the Blood of the covenant as if it were common and unholy. All these people have insulted and enraged the Holy Spirit who brings Godís mercy to His people.

Some people believe that true believers can, through their own fault  (something they have done), will finally fall away from grace and be lost.

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. [KJV]

Do you think God loves you more when youíre good? Do you honestly think that God chose you because you deserved it?Do you think some people are so bad that God couldnít possibly save them?

If you think like this, you simply do not understand that salvation is by grace. Itís a FREE GIFT. You CANNOT buy it, you CANNOT earn it in any way! NO WAY!!!

Ephes. 2:4-5 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, [5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) [KJV]

The penalty of sin and its power over us were miraculously and mysteriously destroyed by Christ when He died on the cross. Through our faith in Christ we stand acquitted (not guilty in the courts of Heaven) before God (Romans 3:21-22). God’s way of making people right with Himself has nothing to do with the Law. We are made right in God’s eyes by our faith in Jesus Christ. God does not take us out of the world or make us robots. We will still feel like sinning, and sometimes we will sin, BUT the difference is that before we became Christians, we were dead in sin and slaves to our sinful nature. But now our faith and God’s grace makes us alive with Christ. God forgives ALL our sin (past, present and future). The power of Jesus’ Blood is capable of doing this.

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. [KJV] The fact is that the entire human race is rightly and justly condemned for repeatedly breaking God’s holy law. Without Jesus we would have no hope whatsoever. But thank God! He has declared us not guilty and has offered us freedom from sin and power to do His will.

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. [KJV] I think this verse states SO clearly that IF a person is TRULY saved, they are saved forever! God does NOT make us His children, and then cancel our relationship with Him.

John 1:12-13 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: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [KJV] Again, here are these wonderful verses! Belief in Christ and His Work on the cross makes us God’s children. Jesus has the power to do this. It says so right here! To ALL who believe in Him and accept Him, Jesus has the right and power to make them children of God. They are reborn, into the family of God! This is not a physical birth that comes from human passion or plan, this rebirth comes only from God. And just as we our physical parents cannot deny their children, God the Father cannot and will not deny us as His children once we are TRULY "born again" into His family. But, IF a person is NOT sincere about his/her relationship with Jesus, they are NOT God’s child. Only God alone knows what is in a person’s heart. Many people "profess" that they are Christians. They go to church on a regular basis, they are good moral people but they are NOT "born again" into God’s family because they do not trust and obey the Lord Jesus Christ. A person can "profess" to be a Christian, but if they do not "possess" Christ in their heart and love Him with all their heart, soul and mind (Mat.22:36-40), they are NOT Christians (Rom.8:9). There are many who draw near to Him with their mouth, and honor Him with their lips; but their heart is far from Him (Mat.15:8), and God knows each and every one of these people. These people will fall away from God’s grace because they were never there to begin with. But, a TRUE "born again" Christian will NEVER fall from the grace of God! NEVER!

And if a person who has learned about Christ and how to be saved, and has been influenced by TRUE Christians, but then chooses to reject the Truth and return to his/her sin (2 Pet.2:20), this person is far worse off than before, because he/she has rejected the only way out of sin, and the only possible Way of salvation (Acts 4:12). They are like a person who can’t swim and are drowning in the ocean, but refuses to grab that life-saving rope thrown to him/her. Anyone who turns away from Christ is throwing away his/her only means of escape.

Some people believe that no sin can be forgiven unless it is confessed and repented of. They believe that anyone who dies with any unforgiven sin is separated from God for eternity.

I cannot go along with this --- no way! Rev. 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. [KJV] All who persevere, shall receive from Christ, food from the Tree of life which is in Heaven. IF it were true that we must confess and repent of every sin BEFORE our death, or be separated from God (2 Thes.1:8-9) for eternity, then we ALL would be doomed to Hell because there are many sins we commit that we are not even aware of. God is so holy, so perfect, so pure and so good that we ALL fall short. We DO, SAY and THINK bad and wrong things in God's eyes. If I were to think a bad thought, and at that moment be in a car wreck and be killed, would I go to Hell, and be separated from my Heavenly Father for eternity because I didn’t have time to confess that sin? I CANNOT believe this! NO way! That is NOT what God tells me in His Holy Word!

Rev. 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. [KJV] Here is sureness of our reward, and that reward comes from Christ’s own Hand. The second death is far worse than the first death, because of the agonies of it, and that it is eternal death (eternal separation from God). When we know we are kept from the second death and wrath to come, as promised by our Saviour, we patiently endure whatever we meet up with in this world. We are going to a better place. Jesus says so!

Rev. 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. [KJV] To be "dressed in white" means to be set apart for God and made pure. There is nothing we can do on our own to accomplish this, except trust and believe God by faith. Christ here promises future honor and eternal life to those who stand firm in their faith. The names of all TRUE believers are registered in the book of life. This book symbolizes those who belong to Him. All TRUE believers are guaranteed a listing in the book of life and will be introduced to the hosts of Heaven as belonging to Christ (Luke 12:8-9).

Rev. 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. [KJV] The wondrous joys that come to us from Christ when we overcome, are like waters springing from a fountain, pure, refreshing, abundant, and eternal. The joys of being set apart as God’s children are assured by the Holy Spirit within all TRUE believers. He prepares us for eternal heavenly happiness. (See: John 14:17; Gal.5:5; Eph.4:30; Rom.15:13,16; 1 Cor.2:9-10; 6:11; Heb.10:11-18).

HOW DO WE OVERCOME??

1 John 5:4-5 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. [5] Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? [KJV] To "overcome" is to be completely victorious by believing in Christ, by persevering, remaining faithful, and living as one who follows Christ. Such a life brings great rewards, now and for eternity.

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. [KJV] Are you REALLY a Christian? Are you REALLY God’s child? Have you ever worried about this? A TRUE Christian is anyone who has trusted Christ to save them from God’s wrath and eternal death. When a person becomes "born again" the Spirit of God lives within him or her. And once you have the Spirit of God within you, He is there "forever" (John 14:16; 2 John 1:2). If you have sincerely trusted Christ for your salvation and have acknowledged Him as Lord of your life, and have committed your life to Him, then the Holy Spirit has come into your life, and you are a Christian. And remember, once the Holy Spirit is within you, He will NOT leave you, ever. He’s there forever!

You won’t know that the Holy Spirit has come if you are waiting for a certain feeling; but you will know He has come because Jesus promised He would and Jesus does NOT lie to us, ever!

When the Holy Spirit is working within you:

#1 You will believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son,
#2 You will believe that eternal life comes only through Him (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:5),
#3 You will begin to act differently; willingly obeying Christ (Rom.8:5; Gal.5:22-23);
#4 You will have help in your daily problems and in your prayers (Rom.8:26-27);
#5 You will be empowered to serve God and do His will (Acts 1:8; Rom.12:6), and
#6 You will become part of God’s plan to build up His church (Ephes. 4:12-13).

IF you do NOT change, there is great doubt that you really are a TRUE believer, a child of God.

TRUE love for God and His people is different from kindness. It is being UNITED with God and His love, and it is OBEDIENCE to His commands. The Holy Spirit teaches us to love, but He also teaches us obedience. Those who are born of God and TRULY love Him NEVER count His commandments grievous, but feel that they can never do enough for Him, and they strive to serve Him more perfectly. Self-denial is not optional in our service to Him; it is required. Everyone except believers in Christ, are enslaved in some way or another, to the customs, opinions, or interests of this world.

Faith is why we have victory. It is the means, the instrument, the spiritual armor by which we "overcome". It is in and by faith that we cling tightly to Christ, and we are in contempt of, and in opposition to this world which is controlled by Satan. Faith sanctifies our heart, and purifies it from those sensual lusts by which the world (Satan) obtains power and control over souls. Faith knows it has the indwelling Spirit of grace, which is far greater than he who dwells in the world (1 John 4:4). The TRUE Christian "overcomes" this world by faith. He/she sees, in and by the life and conduct of the Lord Jesus on Earth, that this is how we should live. A TRUE Christian cannot be satisfied with this world, but looks and yearns beyond it; striving, and pressing toward Heaven. If we donít follow Christís example, and overcome the world, it will overcome us.

We cannot and must not live in deliberate disobedience to God, living the way we know is wrong in Godís eyes. But to confess every sin before we die is absolutely impossible. I truly believe that when God looks down on TRUE believers, He does NOT see our sin, but He sees the precious Blood of Jesus, His Holy Son, covering us. And I believe that when He sees that precious Blood, He will NOT reject that believer.

Any person who is TRULY "born again" is a child of God and has the Holy Spirit within them forever! ALL TRUE believers are Heaven bound (John 14:1-3). The way to eternal life is unseen but secureóas secure as your trust in Jesus. He has prepared the way to eternal life for Godís TRUE children. Please believe this!
