Can a person who has faith in the Lord Jesus Christ lose their salvation?
*The answer is no! How can you lose that which is not yours?
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 1-Corinthians 6:19 NASB.
You are the purchased possession of God; the Father gave you to Jesus, he bought you from Satan’s slave block of sin with his own blood. Just as the Lord had Hosea buy back his wife from the slave block. God used Hosea and his wife to show us how he would save us. He would send his only sinless Son to give his life for us on the cross, purchase us from the slavery of Satan, a pure act of love!
He also said, “I will put my trust in him,” that is, “I and the children God has given me.” Hebrews 2:13 NLT.
Jesus is not ashamed to call us believer’s brothers and sisters because we are ALL from the same Father and at the cross he purchased us with His own blood.
So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters. Hebrews 2:11 NLT.
*Some Churches preach a false doctrine denying “Eternal Security”, that is they deny the Lord’s own words of; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. John 10:28 NASB.
I have personally heard in one of those Churches someone say; “You can take yourself out of God’s hands”. Talk about twisting scripture! The word says “No one will snatch them out”, doesn’t the “No one” include themselves?
Or are they saying that they are greater that God? It seems to me that this doctrine is just one of Satan’s many deceptions in some of our modern Churches.
I believe the following scripture explains these people very well along with their own self-righteousness which comes through the Law and works. (Legalism) Avoid them as God’s word tells us to do! “They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!” 2-Timothy 3:5 NLT. Don’t let these fakers steal your joy with their lies and twisting of scripture, for the Truth (Jesus) has set you free! The following two scriptures refute their pet doctrine of salvation by works. (Good works will come as a result of salvation proving that the person had received the free gift of faith and that faith without works is dead, being by itself!) For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; Ephesians 2:8 NASB. Not as a result of works, so that no one may boast Ephesians 2:9 NASB.
Those who offer their own “Good Works” for salvation rather than the completed work of our Lord Jesus
Christ on the cross are in for a rude awakining. Read what God thinks about their Good Works!
We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind. Isaiah 64:6 NLT.
Only faith in Jesus can save you! Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6 NLT.
I pray that what I have shown from God’s word will strengthen my brothers and sisters in Christ. My hope is that they will reject false doctrines, legalism and grow to maturity in their walk with the Lord being led by the Holy Spirit.
It is said in God’s word that in the last days that there would be “Apostasy” in the Church. Indeed today we do see false teachers/preachers who have crept into the Church. There are also the “Tares” (Fake believers, they talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. You will know them by their rotten fruit, they live as religious Church going people, take communion, but they love their sin which comes from their lusts within. They are devoid of the Holy Spirit) whom **Satan places in the Church. Satan had learned that after killing many Christians that they only grew stronger so he decided to join the Church in order to subvert it from within. Be on your guard my fellow Christians.
**and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one Matthew 13:38 NASB.
