"ONCE SAVED- ALWAYS SAVED?"
Pilot text : Matthew 7:21-23
QUESTION: "Once I believe in Yahshua (Jesus), and confess Him as my Savior, repenting of my sins: am I eternally secure?"
QUESTION: "Am I saved even if I then turn away and deliberately continue to sin?"
Outward service and one time confession alone is not true salvation - church attendance will not deliver you from Gehinnom - The Lake of Fire!!!
The Apostle Kepha (Peter) tells us plainly that a person can turn from salvation and lose the promise of eternal life!
2 Peter 2:20-22
Yahshua the Messiah gave a profound picture of a person being given the promise of eternal life, and then that servant losing that gift through disobedience!!
Yahshua shows us that we must endure to the end to receive true salvation: i.e. eternal life. This means we must endure until:
A) we die
B) or Yahshua Returns
Matthew 24:13 (Read 1-13 for context)
Apostle Sha'ul (Paul) continually strived toward perfection not thinking to have already received it, but daily working toward perfection by working out his own salvation with fear and trembling.
I thessalonians 5:9
I Peter 1:5
Once you turn in repentance (T'shuvah) to YHWH through Yahshua and recieve the full knowledge of salvation, if you then turn away, you fall into danger of receiving damnation in the Lake of Fire!!
SUMMARY: Salvation is much more than a "one time heart-felt confession" based on emotion as is usually taught in nominal religions of today. The salvation of your soul BEGINS with turning to YHWH through Yahshua the Messiah, CONTINUING daily to walk righteously in Him, and ENDURING TO THE END! Complete salvation will appear with the return of the Savior, Yahshua Ha Mashiakh!!! Hallelu-Yah!
