    Many Christians who feel they are doing right, much like Judas trying to put Christ in what he thought was the right place in their minds, will find out at the end that it is not what Christ desires.

    The Messiah will establish His kingdom on the earth in due time.

    Luk 1:31-33 KJV And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (32) He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: (33) And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

    Are you another one that thinks that the gospel of the kingdom is only about some mystic "spiritual" thing?

    Mark 8:33
    But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.

    Luke 4:8
    And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

    Many people or ministers try to tell people that once they become Christians they are guarranteed salvation, but is this doctrine of 'Once Saved, Always Saved' what the Bible teaches, lets see. If you look in the Bible, salvation or to be saved, can be described as both past, present, and future, because it can be speaking of different aspects. If it is not understood, there can be confusion.

    But the Bible clearly tells us that even those who are Christians can fall away from salvation...

    1 Corinthians 10:12
    Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

    1 Timothy 3:5-7
    5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
    6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
    7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

    Hebrews 6:4-6
    4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
    5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
    6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

    Matthew 7:21
    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven."

    So those who teach or preach 'Once Saved, Always Saved' really are saying, "I can do whatever I want, as long as I claim to have accepted Jesus. Many try use this verse, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38, 39.

    Now its a promise, but does it say once a person is born again, it is impossible for him to lose his way and be lost? In fact, this verse is clearly talking about God's unconditional love towards man. You might also notice that the word "sin" was not included in the list of things which are unable to separate us from the love of God.

    If we continue in sin, after we have asked Jesus to be our personal Saviour, are we really in a saved relationship, are we converted? "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins." Hebrews 10:26.

    We also have a few others that these teachers of 'Once Saved ,Always Saved' miss....
    For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified." Romans 2:13.

    "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." Galatians 5:19-23.


    One is not saved just by becoming a Christian, the Bible clearly shows the doctrine of 'Once Saved, Always Saved', is not true, but brought out by Satans helpters to deceive those who want cheap grace and a guick cover for their sins and living in its domain of evil, and they will depart from the faith of Jesus and lose salvation...

    "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;" 1 Timothy 4:1.
    Falling is sort of the opposite of standing.

    Losing salvation, ie, eternal life, is not the opposite of standing.

    Falling into condemnation, including the condemnation of the devil is not losing eternal life

    No one gets to become born again twice, at the moment of becoming born again, you receive incorruptible seed, I Peter 1:23, which is the gift of eternal life. Eternal life means eternal life, it does not mean life for the few minutes until you sin again. Eternal means eternal. God does not lie about that.

    There is no more sacrifice for sin for all sins have been paid for already. Jesus' work is complete in that regard

    Receiving eternal life is about eternal life, having eternal life we can either do the works that God has prepared for us to do and earn rewards and gain an inheritance or not do the works and gain no inheritance or sin and lose inheritance. Having an inheritance is a different issue than having eternal life.

    Departing from the faith does not negate eternal life. It would not be eternal if it was not eternal.

    Read what is written and trust God words not the words of men,not the false doctrines of men as they twist and pollute words found in scripture

    Matthew 10:32-33
    He, like Judas failed constantly relying on self, but Peter had a faith that allowed Jesus to work in him, and do its transformation which even after the Pentecost, Paul had to straighten him out on things. But we have to fight the good fight and keep on till the end

    In heaven during the time of turmoil, Lucifer led one third of God’s Cildren astray. The other two thirds, just like today, there was all types. procrastinators, took no interest, sat back and watched, etc. There were some who like those who get lots of print in the Bible, that fought for God. He uses these to fulfill His Plan. So although the Apostles are not like they were in the first age, God realized this, and gave them a great leeway in fulfilling the purpose chosen for them. Just think what it would be like serving God then. But Paul being weak like us all, I can just see Jesus smiling at him. Jesus was not talking to Peter, but Satan’s spirit which was present getting a hold of him. Just like Jesus allowed Satan to temporarily get a hold on Judas Es. You should know, Satan was on earth and in heaven during the early part of this flesh age. When Jesus was being tempted by Satan, at the end of it, Jesus told him to get behind Him. Behind the heavenly Throne which was occupied by The Father (the Office of) Now he is in that bottomless pit till Micheal let’s him out, boots him to earth.
    But don't forget, Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, in fact the Jewish leaders and scribes were constantly accusing and causing strife, trying Him in every way.

    But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren
    Luke 22:32

    In other words, the Lord knew Peter better than Peter knew himself. He knew Peter and where he would be. So His calling Peter "Satan" only recognizes the influence Satan was having through Peter.

    According to the gospel of the grace of God, we are saved apart from ourselves.

    Eph 2:4-10 KJV 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 (6) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (7) That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (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. (10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    Paul uses saved in the past tense. DONE!!

    You think that you can save yourself by your <whatever actions you want to claim>. You cannot.

    Or they rely on Calvinism to save and even go as far as to state that "Calvinism is the Gospel". Heretics are not redeemed, regenerate nor repentant. The heretic cap fits you, wear it with shame.
