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.
THOUGHTS ON BEING ON THE SAME PAGE WITH GOD AND KJV SCRIPTURE…..
As an intercessor, I remember the days, when I used to give someone a scripture, for their need be it health, or guidance, comfort, faith, hope, whatever…. and we were all on the same page with God. For the most part. We all used the same Bible versions. That being the KJV. But it has changed so very much, even in the last twenty years….
Now with all the different Bible versions, I actually have to be specific, and tell a person, use a KJV for the holiness, and anointing so the scripture, you use will not be corrupt. The enemy, has done a number on so many people, and its sad.
Like I say; ” If the enemy can deceive a person in the word they use, he can deceive you in anything.”
I CHARGE THEE THEREFORE BEFORE GOD, AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO SHALL JUDGE THE QUICK AND THE DEAD AT HIS APPEARING AND HIS KINGDOM; PREACH THE WORD; BE INSTANT IN SEASON, OUT OF SEASON, REPROVE, REBUKE, EXHORT WITH ALL LONGSUFFERING AND DOCTRINE. FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS SHALL THEY HEAP TO THEMSELVES, TEACHERS, HAVING ITCHING EARS; AND THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, AND SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES. BUT WATCH THOU IN ALL THINGS, ENDURE AFFLICTIONS, DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST, MAKE FULL PROOF OF THY MINISTRY. II TIMOTHY 4:1-5. KJV.
I base this post on a conversation, I had with someone on social media. Look, there is a misconception about this, and if I can gather lost souls for the Kingdom of God, then Lord use me.
But people are not getting the truth, people are twisting scriptures to justify this, and people have no fear of God, or sense, to stay away from sin, even because of this wrong teaching “once saved is always saved.”
They think grace, will cover it. They think they don’t need the law, to know. Another misconception. Do you really think God flip flopped when He gave the law? Just because Paul talks about not needing the law? He was talking about the law of sin and death. That is the only law we are free from.
See Romans 8:2. KJV. FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
But note how the Psalmist, talks about salvation and the law. It is needed!
I HAVE LONGED FOR THY SALVATION, O LORD: AND THY LAW IS MY DELIGHT. Psalms 119:174.
There have been so many lies spoken, and where the bible they use is even a lie.
There are many scriptures that warn us, THAT ONCE SAVED IS NOT SAVED. Do your own search on words. Search the word “blot” and from a King James, the other versions may not have that reference. A persons name can be blotted out of the lambs book of life. Even in Revelation 22:18-19 it talks about those who change Gods word, will not enter the Kingdom. Look at it!
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.”
Exodus 32:33 KJV
I get weary with those who argue God won’t remove someone’s name from the Lambs Book Of Life. That they think and actually believe they cannot lose their salvation. It’s here folks. I will not argue about Gods holy King James word.
This is why we need just one Holy Bible when we search. To be on the same page with God.
Which many Christians think you are judging them, if you tell them this truth, but you are warning them. Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33 tells us to warn even the “righteous” person. THAT IS A PERSON WHO THINKS THEY ARE SAVED BUT THEY ARE DECEIVED. Look it up in a King James Bible.
Switch bibles, get a holy anointed King James Bible.
Please look at the scriptures I based this conversation on. They are the true last scriptures Christ gave to warn us. He tells us to be repenting. HE talks about how we received our salvation. But we have grown dull, by not knowing the truth. Many have become neither cold nor hot. He will spit us out! If we don’t get it right! Judgement day is real folks, and we need to get the fear of God, because we all will stand before God. HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL! Get scared, and get the fear of God, because your soul could be lost!
Please get the truth, so you truly can be free in Christ. Repent first, so you can hear the Holy Spirit guide you. Then lead others truly to Christ. But don’t fall for that lie that once saved is always saved. Its not.
‘I know, I was a backslider. And by the grace of God I did not die in those years, I was backslidden. But the only way I got it right was by repenting! And I still repent. I still make mistakes. Which in Gods eyes could be considered sin. Remember His ways are not always our ways. This is scriptural. And I want nothing to do with the enemy. I renounce him, and his deception. Do not be deceived. See the truth. Repent. Renew your vows to Christ. And yes share this. Be a soul winner. For Christ.
Blessings, and love, Elena Ramirez
CONVERSATIONS ON ONCE SAVED IS NOT ALWAYS SAVED
Yes you are my sister and this is why I warn you in His love. The first thing the Holy Spirit brought to me was to tell you, and others how wrong this teaching is. You have love I see it. But the truth is in His word. Once saved is not always saved. He tells us many will come in His name but they will deceive others with vain words. The wrath of God will be on those who have had no fear of God. This is not taught. We are to fear the one who has power to put our soul in heaven and hell. We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. How can that be worked out if one just takes it for granted? That is taking the sacrifice of Christ for granted. His suffering and pain for our sins. NO! Christ told us, many will say Lord, Lord, but HE will say I never knew you. Why? because we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. Repentance is the key. Daily repentance even. How many times do we in this world sin? Just by thought or deed. Again I looked at your profile, I saw what Bible you reference. That is not a holy bible. Don’t tell people this! You have love then obey God. Research the KJV scriptures. ASK God to show you. But plz stop misleading people.
“Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
Revelation 3:2-19 KJV
