Nr. 588: Once saved - always saved? !

Nr. 588:

Once saved - always saved? !

John Calvin and Calvinism teaches some people are predestined by God to eternal salvation , others to eternal damnation . God's majesty and predestination are important parts of Calvin's teachings. This is the way I see it, this is not true, but anyway. There is some truth in it as God knows the end from the beginning. But salvation is conditioned by two things. What God did in Christ , and we believe it and live in accordance with God's word.

It's great having received absolution the time we received salvation in Christ Jesus.

Bigger is it to own sins in the day after having walked with the Lord.

With all of this pales against maintaining remission of sin lifetime so we are saved forever. Without it , all in vain !

We must share salvation into three pages or sections .

1 ) We are saved when we accept Jesus Christ , when we are born again and a child of God .

Joh. e 1 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God , even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood , nor of the flesh, nor the will of man , but of God .

2 ) Salvation is a journey , where we need a daily cleansing and sanctification to be preserved in salvation .

Joh. AD 13 10 Jesus saith to him , He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

3 ) The day Christ comes in the clouds , and we get glorious body , we participate in sluttfrelsen .

1 Jn . b 3 2 Beloved now we are children of God , and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see him as he is.

It is also something I want to mention here, it is that one can partake in sluttfrelsen , but all that we have done for the Lord will be lost if we do not believe . Part of salvation - sluttfrelsen , is that we will pay, full pay.

2 Joh. b 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought , but that we receive a full reward !

But how to share in sluttfrelsen and get full pay ? Here are ten factors that will take us there, Hallelujah !

1 ) Belief in Jesus Christ as the substitute for our sins bestows forgiveness of sins .

Galatians 3 26 In all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:21 Him who knew no sin he made ​​to be sin for us , so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

It is our sin that creates separation between us and God.

Isaiah 59 2 But your iniquities have made ​​divorce between you and your God , and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

But - Hallelujah - it is an intermediary between us and the only true God , the perfect man Jesus Christ , who fulfilled the law ( God's requirements) . He is our substitute and by and by he bestowed forgiveness of sins .

1 Tim.2 . 5 For there is one God and one mediator rocks of God and men, the man Christ Jesus , 6 who gave himself a ransom for all , a testimony in his time ,

And it is the belief of what God did for us in Christ Jesus who saves us, nothing else.

Eph. 2 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God , 9 not of works , lest any man should boast.

Faith is not only a gift, but it is something that we are going to!

Eph. 1 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth , the gospel of your salvation - in whom also , after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise ,

Notice what's in my verse here : " in whom also , after that ye believed ." We come to the belief that we come to a place or a city.

2 ) Repentance bestows forgiveness of sins .

Luke 24 47 and in his name repentance and forgiveness of sins is preached to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Salvation Army The founder William Booth was just before the turn of the century approached by an American journalist who, on behalf of his newspaper were to ask a number of famous people what they thought was the greatest danger facing the new century : The biggest danger I consider to be that in the past days shall be : religion without the Holy Ghost , Christianity without Christ , forgiveness without confession and repentance , salvation without regeneration, politics without God , Heaven without Hell.

If coming to faith is not followed by ad conversion will not sin forgiven experienced. It is when repentance and faith go hand in hand that we share the forgiveness of sins . As the spokes and the hub of a wheel moves when the wheel moves, faith and repentance , there are two sides of the same coin and experience. There are partakers of the forgiveness of sins !

3 ) Making the sin between brothers and sisters in the Lord bestows forgiveness of sins , if one does not lose than ultimately salvation .

Matt . 5 23 Therefore , when you wear your offering to the altar , and there remember that your brother has something against you , 24 leave your gift there before the altar , and go first be reconciled thee to thy brother , and then come and offer thy gift ! 25 Make haste to be yielding against your opponent while you are with him on the road , lest the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer , and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee , Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing .

This scripture speaks so highly of themselves , we live in unsettled sins , we can not expect and believe that we are partakers of the forgiveness of sins .

1 Jn . b 4:11 Beloved God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another . 12 No man hath seen God if we love one another , God abides in us and his love is perfected in us .

From God's point of view it is impossible for him to forgive us without we live as he wants and desires.

4 ) Daily repentance bestows forgiveness of sins .

1 Jn . b 1 7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light , we have fellowship with one another , and Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin .

Once saved, always saved? No and again a no, we have no guarantee of getting part in sluttfrelsen without we daily renew our minds and in our spirit . There will be millions who thought and thought and others thought was going to heaven but that was lost . Once saved is not secure in any way that would reach out and share in the forgiveness of sins . If you do not live in daily repentance, and repentance from sin as well DO AS A CHRISTIAN OR BELIEVERS , THAT WOULD AN perish ! There will be millions of those who say they are believers but who are homosexual , gjengiftede , married to divorced or other sins but say they are Christians. The church in Laodicea lacked eye ointment , it does indeed also the Christians here in Norway . The blood of Jesus cleanses not if we do not live in accordance with God's will and word of God. We must live in the light - every day - without compromising we lost even if we have accepted Jesus in the past. It's about repentance , even as a believer . In fact , some of the worst I see today is gjengiftede preachers who live according to their own carnal desires but to preach the gospel and save others . Then fit the word that Jesus said in Luke 4:23 And he said unto them, Ye will certainly say unto me this proverb , physician, heal thyself ! Whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum , do also here in your hometown ! Yes, Jesus' words fit perfectly here, we must always ensure that we ourselves are in the right position and live in accordance with God and his word , even after we have been saved and born again . Repentance is not just a one-off experience, but it's an experience we need and should have the rest of our life, for life !

5 ) Making up unresolved sins bestows forgiveness of sins , such as . to stop living in the obvious sins.

1 Cor . 5 9 I wrote to you in my letter that I should not have intercourse with fornicators - 10 I did not mean to ordinary fornicators of this world or the greed and robbers , or idolaters , or had ye go out of the world: 11 But now I have written to you, was that I should not have intercourse with any man that is called a brother and a fornicator, or covetous person or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or robber, so I do not even eat with him .

We will not ignore the fact that we as Christians also sin , and perish . Scripture speaks very much about this , that repentance is not just a one-off , but in fact , a daily experience . Therefore, we must focus on repentance for Christians , or will we deceive ourselves and other Christians . It is not only the non-believers who need to repent , but above all, believers that judgment begins with us ? Yeah right , the church of God , not the world !

1 Pet. 4 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God , but it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God ?

6 ) No remission of sins without Christ , good works do not save itself .

Eph. 2 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God , 9 not of works , lest any man should boast.

We partake of sin forgiven by faith and repentance , not by improving and embellish the old man . But we have become a believer , we do good works as a fruit of faith. But we can never be partakers of the forgiveness of sins by just doing good deeds , it does not hold.

7 ) It is by believing that Jesus is Lord that one can expect to invoke the forgiveness of sins .

1 Cor . 12th 3 Wherefore I give you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, Jesus accursed and no man can say that Jesus is Lord ! but by the Holy Spirit.

Acts 9:5 And he said , Who art thou , Lord? And he said, I am Jesus , whom you are persecuting.

The faith that saves and gives absolution is linked to not believe in anything, but that Jesus is Lord. What is there in that? Yes, that through Jesus' death on Calvary , he was raised by the one true God of the dead . Man Jesus Christ was now Lord, got all the power and through faith in him we are all declared righteous before God. Jesus is Lord, not the one true God , it is the Savior and give us part of the forgiveness of sins by believing in the biblical Jesus. Not the Jesus traditions and unbiblical teachings tell who he is .

8 ) By confessing his sin to God , and if one has sinned other people, then one can expect remission of sins.

Jacob 5 16a Confess your faults one to another , and pray one for another, that ye may be healed

By faith and repent we shall be saved . But how experienced this? Scripture speaks , we should also acknowledge this to be saved. But it helps of course nothing to confess their sins without faith and repentance . But have faith and repentance , as needed , and should a confession followed ad .

Rooms . 10th 8 But what saith it? The word is near you , in your mouth and in thy heart: that is the word of faith , which we preach , 9 That if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, shall be saved : 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness , and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Notice that faith and confession are two parts of the same coin , which brings salvation and forgiveness of sin to all of us!

9 ) Upon becoming aware of their sins , conscious as unconscious , one can expect and trust that is granted absolution.

Psalm 7:13 p.m. Who notice how often he 's wrong ? Forgive me my secret sins !

It is clear that none of us enough, that's why we need Jesus to share in the forgiveness of sins . He who says he is without sin , deceive themselves. God the Father - the one true God - find out errors in their own angels , how much more with us? Let us ask God to forgive us all our sins , even our hidden and secret sins.

10 ) Through self-examination and take communion, one can expect the remission of sins.

1 Cor . 11th 23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you , That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread , 24 gave thanks and broke it, and said, This is my body which is for you: this in memory of me ! 25 Likewise also the cup after supper , saying , This cup is the new testament in my blood : this do ye , as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me ! 26 For as often as ye eat this bread and drink this cup , ye do shew the Lord's death until he comes . 27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread , and drink this cup of the Lord unworthily , shall be guilty of the Lord's body and blood. 28 But let a man examine himself , and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup ! 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself if he does not discerning the Lord's body .

Supper itself savior , but it is as a help for us all to " easier " to believe what is provided in Christ Jesus. There are few visible " means " God has given us of håndpåtagelige things easier for us to be able to believe and which is provided as is visible and håndpåtagelig art , it is the sacrament and baptism. This is the closest we can call script for a sacrament if it is a word not found in the Bible.

Final comment :

Have just tried to put forward that it may take part in the sin of sins is not a one-time experience but something we daily need to partake in. And that's the day we go out of time and into eternity that will prove whether we had part in the sin of sins . It is only those who have received the remission of sins that comes through the " pearly gates ," everyone else is lost forever ! And it is by no means true that has experienced the salvation that is part of sluttfrelsen . Should one share in sluttfrelsen , a stay the course and live like a believer. Are we then saved by works ? No, but actions are part of salvation . James says it so eloquently and well :

James 2 17 Thus, even faith : it has no works, is dead in himself . 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith , and I have works . Show me your faith without deeds , and I will shew thee my faith by my works ! 19 You believe that God is one , you do well : the devils also believe, and tremble . 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man , that faith without works is dead? 21 Abraham our father , he was not justified by works when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and faith was perfected by works , 23 and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness: and he was called God's friend. 24 You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 In the same way Rahab the harlot was not she justified by works , when she had received the messengers , and let them out another way ? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead , so faith without works is dead .

Abraham believed God , and did deeds that were worthy of belief . Therefore, he also himself part of the forgiveness of sins and the eternal salvation ! While those who do not live as they preach , you will not share in the sins and share in salvation ! But perish !

But those who believe , live in repentance and confession to Christ , expect an eternity together with God the Father and all who accepted his salvation in Christ Jesus. Faith and works in a right way gives us part of the forgiveness of sins ! Faith alone do not save , but faith , repentance and confession !
