Once Saved Always Saved?

 

This video touches and answers all the questions in one piece about the age old “Once Saved Always Saved” question.  There’s so much that can be said, but what’s most important is to lay down and start over again each day.

 

Heavenly Father,

Forgive us today for being selfish and/or greedy with our prayers.  Forgive us for any area where we have failed You and not lived according to Your purposes.  Forgive us for being soulish, and selfish, and help us to seek more and more after You.  We don’t take You for granted.  Help strengthen the body of Christ in the last days, and let us lay aside every sin, that has become a snare for us.  Help us to forgive where we have had grudges.  Help us to lay everything down before Your feet, and let Your Holy Spirit work go before us.  Thank You for this young man, who put things into proper perspective.  We’ve seen it one too many times where people have lost their souls because they think just because they believe, but they don’t do.  If we have fallen away in this area in any way, if there are things that You have told us to do, that we have not done, forgive us for that.  Forgive us for all the things that have defiled our minds, feelings, and behaviors.  Forgive us when we have not acted out of love.  Forgive us when the fruit of the Spirit has not been cultivated within us.  Help us to be true worshippers Lord, and help us to enter in by the narrow gate.  Have mercy upon us Lord.  Let the light of Your grace, justice, and mercy be upon us Lord God.  We repent for all of our selfish prayers, but thank You for sending this young man as a prophet to speak the Word of Truth into our lives, that we need to hold on to You, and that this is a race, and that we need to keep our eyes on the prize.  Help to refine us and purge away the dross in our lives.  Help to purify us and make us like gold.   Help us when we are weak, and deliver us from temptation, and rescue us from evil.  Help us to pray like You want and not like we want.  Thank You for hearing our prayer and supplications.

In Jesus Mighty Name I pray,

 

Amen.

  1. What is the gospel?
    what is in the gospel?
    does the gospel means good news?
    if you lose salvation because of sin, is that good news? is half good news, good news?

    did Jesus completed half a work?
    are we forgiven of past sins only?
    aren’t we forgiven of all sins?
    were you alive already when Jesus died?
    isn’t it our sins are future when Jesus died?

    Can you show us a scripture verse

    1. that says – Genuine Believers can lose salvation?
    2. that says – We are to keep our salvation by works?
    3. that says – sin can cost our salvation to lose?
    4. that says – God remembers ones sins?
    5. that says – we are saved not just by grace rather by our efforts to not sin?

    now the real question is this.

    “When saved, are Genuine Believers really save?”

    either a person is save, or not saved at all.

    a genuine believers salvation is not 50/50
    50% our effort (to not sin and keep salvation),
    and 50% Jesus effort (who became sin)

    no. Jesus did a complete and finish work 100%.

    • I don’t know about the context of this video and what it exactly says, but it is a warning for believers. Believers always have a choice to turn away like many do in their lives. It is usually because sin pulls them away, but it is not always the case. Salvation is a choice to accept Jesus Christ as your savior…and this all goes back to Predestination vs. Free-will. The theory of Predestination started by Calvin says that we were chosen from the beginning and granted unto eternal life. Free-will says that you have a choice and you can walk away. For your own sake, I just say believe on the name of Jesus and I think I’ll remove this video as well. Because unless I really know what the Bible says on the subject I shouldn’t be walking presumptuously and not following the Holy Spirit’s instruction. I am sorry for any pain or grief that this may have caused you. There are many people who after choosing Jesus and are real born again believers who fall from grace and turn away from God. But to that message up there took away hope for the people who want to believe that Jesus will look down upon them for what they have done. Also there is salvation which is a complete work, and then there is sanctification. After salvation there is a process of sanctification that takes place. I am so sorry about hurting your hopes in anyway.

      • oh, I hope it didn’t sound as if i’m attacking the guy in the video.. lol
        and i do hope also that it wasn’t you in the video

        don’t be sorry, I am shaky. but the foundation I stand is not.

        how worst can we be than Peter, who denied Jesus 3 times and still go to heaven when Jesus said He will deny those who deny Him.

        Jesus is Yeshua. He is salvation himself. and He is our salvation. we have never
        earned a bit of salvation.

        we didn’t get salvation because we chose to be saved.
        we don’t lose salvation because we choose to lose it.

      • My understanding is that we chose Jesus as our Savior when we accepted Him. That is salvation, the way I see it. No that wasn’t me in the video, but here is a Scripture that I found – and I’m still trying to figure out this once saved always saved. I guess the thing is for us to be more like Peter and not like Judas. I think I have a post on that one as well and I’ll have to reblog that. But let’s contemplate these versus –

        16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

        19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,[c] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders,[d] drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

        22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

        I’m assuming that based on vs. 22, that are people that cannot inherit the kingdom of God. If we walk after the flesh and not after the Spirit, then we will be in danger, but if we walk after the Spirit, then the next step is cultivate the Fruit of the Spirit. The main thing is to keep our eyes upon Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our faith. Whenever you are falling and you turn to Him, He will surely lead you down the right track, but if you find yourself being overwhelmed by everything, and not keep your eyes on Jesus, then it becomes hard. I sometimes wish that I could believe and act on what I was saying myself. The more you draw closer to Jesus the more He will purify you. But the more you try with your own efforts to please God, then it is in vain, because without faith it is impossible to please God. The only way we can lose our salvation it is not because of sin, but because of rejecting Jesus, and even then Jesus said that would be forgiven, so I guess if we blaspheme the Holy Spirit, which I still have trouble with that one, then we are at risk.

    • that verse is found in Galatians

      Paul was describing what “Unsaved” are
      He lists the works(plural) of the flesh

      notice he said
      “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law”

      clearly, believers are saved by grace not by the law or good works.

      but the fruit(singular) of the Spirit are ….

      notice the fruit of the Spirit is never our effort
      If the Spirit is in you, you will do things that you
      do not used to do.

      “And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with
      its passions and desires”

      Paul also said, the passions and desires of the flesh are crucified
      they’re dead

      let me tell you a testimony, real quick.

      when I was 11 years old, I almost murdered my mother.

      now, I am transformed. I loved her so much.
      how? I dont know.
      do I want to murder her again? no. why? because I love her.

      so, that thing about losing salvation is error.
      we are not in a lottery, where going to heaven is 50% chance

      We know that hatred towards a brother is murder already. right?
      if I hated someone, then It is as if I murdered already!
      question.. will I lose salvation?

      so Paul, here was describing what believers are and what the “unsaved” are.

      I am tempted to answer blaspheme against the Spirit, it will be a long post… lol

      you might want to include in your study about, “If we willfully sin, no more sacrifices left”

      May the holy Spirit speak and manifest wisdom. In Jesus name

      – grace and peace

      • Thanks for your testimony. The key is that we have changed after our salvation, that we no longer want to do what we used to do before.

      • Everyone’s different and it’s about your own personal relationship to Jesus that matters. Who am I to say that you can lose your salvation after what you’ve been through? There’s so much we don’t understand, but Thank God for the Holy Spirit who gives us inspiration and revelation to walk a Christian life. Grace and Peace to you too. Let us walk together in this body of Christ.
