ONCE SAVED NOT ALWAYS SAVED….BY ELENA RAMIREZ
AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK. EXODUS 32:33. KJV
WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS TURNETH FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMITETH INIQUITY, HE SHALL EVEN DIE THEREBY. EZEKIEL 33:18 KJV
The logic of these two above scriptures, tells me, whoever sins, without repentance, that God will blot someone out of the Lambs book of life.
The second verse says, very specifically, a person who has received salvation, but turns from the righteousness of Christ, and sins, he will die, without, salvation.
The thought behind that is, with Christ, we will have life eternally. But if someone “turns” from the righteousness, as it states here, and sins, they will die. They will lose their salvation. They will not have life eternally with Christ. This is why repentance is so important.
Now this last verse, I share comes from Revelation 22:18-19, and yes, it talks about those who change the KJV word. But it impresses on me very clearly, those who do change it, add to it, will lose their part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city. Thereby losing their salvation. Changing it, in any shape or form, is taking the words away from the prophecy…..
FOR I TESTIFY UNTO EVERY MAN THAT HEARETH THE WORDS OF THE PROPHECY OF THIS BOOK, IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD UNTO THESE THINGS GOD SHALL ADD UNTO HIM THE PLAGUES THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE THIS BOOK: AND IF ANY MAN SHALL TAKE AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, GOD SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS PART OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND OUT OF THE HOLY CITY, AND FROM THE THINGS WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK. REVELATION 22:18-19. KJV
Salvation is a contract. Christ did His part, God did His part. But we have our part. If we break the contract, it is our fault. Not Gods, not Christ but ours. We have broken the covenant, of life eternal with Christ. We have broken the contract of salvation, if we sin, without repenting. We will lose our salvation. We will make that contract, null and void.
Salvation is not saved once, and always saved, if someone breaks the covenant. By unrepented sin. REPENT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE, IS WHAT I RECOMMEND TO ANYONE WHO HAS SINNED. FOR WE KNOW NOT WHEN WE WILL LEAVE THIS EARTH. I WOULD GO SO FAR TO SAY, REPENT DAILY. FOR THE SINS, OF EVEN OUR THOUGHTS…..
WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERD; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT. EZEKIEL 33:13. KJV.
And I will just say this lastly. The devil himself, lost salvation. He was in the Kingdom of God, he was an angel. And he was jealous of God. God kicked him out of heaven because of it. He lost it, and so he would want someone to lose it as well. The devil, would want all of us to think Salvation is sound, and to sin, without repenting. And that is my whole point, that repentance is needed to secure it.
