I want to be a soul winner even for the “lost” righteous. Does that make sense? Yea, it does, because there are many who think they are righteous, they think they are saved. They think their salvation is in tact. But its not. They think they have a license to sin. One needs to repent.
What they don’t know, is any kind of sin, separates us from God.
BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE: NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR: BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD, AND YOUR SINS HAVE HID HIS FACE FROM YOU, THAT HE WILL NOT HEAR. ISAIAH 59:1-2. KJV.
Lets look at this scripture in more detail. You pray, but you do not get answers. Why? We need to all ask ourselves that.
Look at that second sentence. It states; But your iniquities have separated between you and your God. Wow! That tells me, you gave your heart to Christ, believing you were saved. But your iniquities have separated you between you and your God. Your God! Look at it! So that tells me, you have sin, on your record. In the book of life.
Here, in Exodus 32:33 it tells us:
AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, WHOSOEVER HATH SINNED AGAINST ME, HIM WILL I BLOT OUT OF MY BOOK.
WOW, double Wow! That book the Lambs book of life, always determines if your name is written in blood, by the blood of Jesus. If you neglect it, abuse it, treat your salvation shabbily, then yea, your name can be removed. Blotted out. Look up that key word, in a King James. (another reason to promote the King James to find truth)
The thing is, and lately, I seem to be in a few of these battles with so called brothers and sisters in Christ, they debate it. They argue it, they bring up other scriptures, that try to contradict the truth, but it can be lost folks. Salvation can be taken away…..
There is no fear of God. To many. We are to work out our salvation, with fear and trembling. Fear of who? God Almighty, who holds the keys to heaven and earth.
WHEREFORE, MY BELOVED, AS YE HAVE ALWAYS OBEYED, NOT IN MY PRESENCE ONLY, BUT NOW MUCH MORE IN MY ABSENCE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING. Phillipians 2:12 KJV.
Many, have the misconception, that works don’t cut it. But it does. Work it out! Faith without works is dead.
FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD, SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO. JAMES 2:26.
A few days ago, I had an interesting conversation or battle with a man, who did not believe he could lose salvation. He went back and forth, in the conversation. But what I noticed was that he always made it about him. Or “I” of this, or that.
And I was trying to get him to see that, yes, salvation could be lost. But, I believed he was saved now, but he just could not grasp that, the conversation was also about others. He made it all about him, and thats what the devil did. Self, I, me, me, me….Thats dangerous, when we cannot see beyond me.
You see, those scriptures above talks about works. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling of God. But we are also commanded, to warn others. Works, is just telling someone, don’t take your salvation for granted.
Anyway, after much patience, because this guy was getting on my nerves, he realized, what I was trying to tell him. That it was not just about him, but about others, who may think their salvation is in tact, but they are lost, they are “Backsliders” and they are in spiritual jeopardy if they die, because they would have unrepented sin.
He finally admitted, and I am paraphrasing his words. “I was lost, then I was saved, then I was lost, and saved again. But now I know I am saved.”
Many, have the misconception, that because they were saved, that it guarantees salvation, even if they sin. And that is wrong, that is dangerous, and that is really a deception from the devil.
Look, I can say this as a testimony. I was saved at an early age. But I had no sense or value, of how precious my salvation was. So I sinned. If I had died, before I repented, I truly believe, I would have lost my salvation. Once saved is not always saved.
And its dangerous to believe that, or to influence others that it is safe.
We are called to warn one another. Ezekiel 33, and I ask please look at it from a King James. It tells us, about the righteous. And if he commits iniquity, all his righteousness, will be forgotten, and he will die.
Die! We are to have life eternally with Christ. Christ, died and abolished only the law of sin, and death.
So many have this misconception, that grace will cover it. That keeping the “law” of God is not necessary. That is so wrong, if God commands it, or even says it. It is LAW! Don’t question it, don’t reason it, don’t ponder on it. OBEY GODS LAW!
No. It only covers it, if you repent. If you have sinned. Do not misinterpret grace, or Gods goodness. He is not mocked.
When I was young, I was a soul winner. I have always tried to be a soul winner, but I believe God is directing me to try and save the righteous, who think they are saved, but are lost, because they do not know King James truth. They have no fear of God. They do not repent.
Its so sad, we have a battle, a big challenge, because so many are misled, misunderstanding, misinterpreting scripture, because they don’t use the truth, and the holiness of a King James bible.
It makes me sad.
In Ezekiel 33, that chapter I ask that you read, it tells us to warn people.
If we do we set ourselves free. I see it myself, the boldness, God gives me.
And though, my brothers and sisters think I am judging them, that is just a lie from the devil.
I tell them this truth, because I love them because Jesus loves them. Its not judging. Its warning. And warning is love. Just like Ezekiel 33 tells us to do.
Just my thoughts, but I want to be a soul winner, for the righteous, who are lost.
All I know, is if we clear the slate, by even daily repenting, we can ensure our salvation.
