God says in His Holy Word that we are to look to Him and be saved because He is God and there is none else.
Salvation from sin and death is found in God alone. The salvation of God is given to anyone who comes to Him for it - in faith - believing that He is God and can save them.
We are all saved the exact same way - by the grace of God through faith in God for our salvation - Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 3:26.
People who do not know the truth will believe anything.
Facts of Salvation is the truth of GOD regarding His salvation. The truth of God is found in His Word, the Word of God, the Holy Bible. Facts of Salvation are ALL found in the Word of God.
Any doctrine we believe is to be proven - shown true - by the Living Word of God. If it is not in the Word of God then we are not to proclaim it as God's truth. Everything you hear about God and His Word is to be proven by you in your own Bible Study to your spirit by the Spirit of God.
God gives wisdom to discern His truth to anyone who asks Him (James 1:5). God's promises and truth is available for all people. God's Word is available and given to all people to learn about God and the things of God. You need no one to teach you because God gives each person His truth, His wisdom, His Spirit to understand His words (1 John 2:27-28). You can learn about God without any man teaching you because God gifts all of His children with the Holy Spirit who teaches our spirit His truth. Be careful especially today who and what you are listening to in this world. There are many false teachers running about the world today (1 John 4:7).
God's truth is in His Word. Remember if it is God's truth then it will be in His Holy Word. God's truth will never contradict God's Word. Always find the Scripture to confirm all teaching. Jesus said that we err not knowing the Scripture, not knowing the word of God, nor the power of God (Matthew 22:29). The power of God is released to us by knowing the Word of God. If you are feeling powerless, disconnected to God, pick up His Holy Scriptures, marinate in His word and you will be strengthened.
The reason that the world is in the shape that it is today, is because we have failed to adhere to the teachings of Christ, we have failed to bring up the next generation in the Word of God, in the doctrine of God. We have decided it is appropriate to live life without God - to live outside of God. Our nation has gone their own way, leaving the churches, leaving the gospel of God, and forsaking their first love (Revelation 2:4) - faith in God.
Pray without ceasing - 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Always pray to receive God's wisdom (James 1:5), God's truth, before and after you begin any Bible Study. I can't say enough how important Prayer is when studying God's word.
Studying God's Holy Word without praying makes as much sense as going to a world renown five star restaurant, ordering a wonderful meal, it is wonderfully presented, set out on your table before you, and then taking out a camera and taking a picture of it, paying the check and then leaving. Yes, you saw the meal but you didn't eat it, you didn't taste it, it didn't feed you, it did not nourish your body, you didn't get all you could out of it. Prayer before and after Bible study allows the Holy Spirit to feed your spirit, your soul with the nourishment of the living Word of God.
You can't defend what you don't know. The only way to combat the lies of the enemy is to know the truth - God's truth - by seeking God out, by learning His word, by living His word. Those who do not know God or have abandoned their faith are persuaded to believe a lie. Stand with God, stand with Christ Jesus, learn God's truth, so you will not be caught unawares, so that you can repel the fiery darts of the enemy, so that you can defend the gospel, so that you will know the truth and be set free.
What is God's truth of salvation? What does God say in His word about His salvation? What is God's truth about His salvation?
We should only listen to God regarding the things of God, through His word we can learn His truth. We should not get our knowledge from man, we should receive knowledge, wisdom, and truth from our Creator - from God.
The Facts of GOD's Salvation:
Salvation belongs to God - God owns salvation - no one else can give you salvation but God.
First, we must realize that salvation belongs to God, it is His salvation.
God owns salvation. Only the one who owns salvation, can give salvation.
We cannot create salvation within ourselves, because God is the Creator of all things, including salvation.
We do not create salvation within ourselves, because salvation is of God, not of man.
We cannot save ourselves, because there is only One Saviour, the LORD God Almighty.
No human person can give salvation to anyone, because salvation belongs to God and only God can give away His salvation.
Salvation is gifted to us from God by grace through faith. Salvation is the operation of God alone.
God alone controls who receives His salvation. No one has control over God and no one has control over giving away His gifts. Salvation is the Gift of God, owned by God and given by God alone.
No one acquires salvation by their own means, by their own works, by anything that they can do for God, salvation is the gift of God, from God alone, by God alone.
All things belong to God (2 Corinthians 5:18). We own nothing in this world, as it all belongs to God. We brought nothing with us into this world and we will take nothing out with us. Our lives our not ours, they are the Lord's. Don't get caught up in the lie that you own this or that, the lie that you control anything, because you don't.
Salvation belongs to God - Psalm 3:8. Salvation is God's salvation. The salvation of God belongs to God alone, no one else. God owns salvation.
God is the author of salvation - Hebrews 5:9; 12:2. Salvation began with God and will end with God. Salvation is the sole property of God. Salvation begins and ends in God. God gifts mankind salvation.
God is the Creator of salvation. God is the Creator of all things. All things are created by God and for God - Colossians 1:16.
Salvation comes from God above, all good things come from God above - James 1:17.
God has always owned all things and will always own all things. God does not change - Malachi 3:6. God is the same from the beginning, God is the same today, and God will be the same forevermore - Hebrews 13:8. Salvation always belonged to God and will always belong to God alone.
Salvation as with everything belongs to God. Everything that is - that exists - belongs to God alone.
We own nothing in this world. God says that we brought nothing into this world, and we will carry nothing out of this world - 1 Timothy 6:7.
God is our salvation. We are NOT our salvation. We are not our own salvation, God is our salvation.
No one can save themselves. No person on this earth can give to anyone the salvation of God. No human being can purchase the salvation of God by any means on this earth.
Mankind is dependent upon God for salvation. No one has salvation with God. God is dependent upon no man for anything.
No one has salvation without God, without faith in Jesus Christ no one is saved. The salvation of God is gifted to us through faith in Jesus Christ. Everything of God, all the things of God are through Christ Jesus.
Salvation begins and ends with God
God is the first and the last, Alpha and Omega, and the beginning and the end of all things. Salvation began with God and will end with God.
There is but one God and He alone is the author of salvation. God is the author of salvation.
The word of God reads that Jesus is the author and finisher of eternal salvation - Hebrews 5:9; 12:2. Eternal salvation begins and ends with Jesus Christ. Without Jesus there is no salvation. Salvation exists only in Christ Jesus.
From the beginning of salvation to the end of salvation, and every every part of salvation in between, we are dependent upon Jesus for our salvation. Apart from Jesus, apart from God, no one has salvation.
God is the author of eternal salvation. God alone created - authored - salvation. God alone created the perfect plan of salvation. Only God can gift - give - His salvation to people.
God gifts us salvation, by His grace through faith - Ephesians 2:8. By the grace of God we are saved - Ephesians 2:5.
Salvation begins in God, salvation begins with God, by grace through faith in His Son Jesus Christ as Saviour of our lives. And the end of our faith is salvation, when we die (or Jesus returns, whichever comes first) and see Him face to face.
The end of our faith is the salvation of our souls. God did not say the beginning of our faith is the salvation of our souls - NO, God said that the end of our faith is the salvation of our souls. We are saved at the moment we receive the gift of life through faith in Christ Jesus - Galatians 3:26, but we receive the salvation of our souls at the end of our faith - when our journey of faith concludes at the end of our lives (when we die, or the Lord returns, whichever happens first) at the end of our faith we receive the crown of life enabling us to enter into Glory, eternal Glory with Jesus into the Kingdom of God. At the end of our faith we receive eternal salvation.
We must hold onto faith in Jesus all the days of our lives - Hebrews 3:14. The word of God reads that the saved, the just, believers, live by faith every day - Galatians 3:11. As believers, our journey to the throne of God is stepping forward toward God every day from faith to faith - Romans 1:17, a continual walk in faith - 1 John 2:24, toward our home in Heaven - Philippians 3:20, to live forever with our Lord God - 1 Thessalonians 4:17.
Christ Jesus is the source of salvation.
Salvation is the gift of God. Salvation is the free gift of God.
Salvation is eternal life and is the gift of God - Romans 6:23. The gift of God is given freely to us by God. The gift of God cannot be purchased by money or anything - Acts 8:20, cannot be obtain by ourselves, and cannot be earned by our works - Ephesians 2:9; Titus 3:5.
The gift of God cannot be purchased by our money - Acts 8:20 - or anything that we think we possess.
The gift of God cannot be obtained by ourselves - Ephesians 2:8.
The gift of God cannot be obtained by our works - Ephesians 2:9, our good deeds, our services to God, our sacrifices, our will, or by anything that we think we can give to God.
Salvation is the gift of God, eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are saved by God's grace alone - Titus 3:7, through faith in Jesus Christ alone, nothing else is needed for salvation.
The salvation of God is given freely to us and nothing is required from us to complete salvation - because salvation was bought and paid for by Jesus - because God has already paid the price - all by Himself - for our salvation.
Salvation was gained for us at a high price. Salvation has already been paid for, bought, purchased by the blood of Jesus. Salvation is free to us know because Jesus paid the price for our salvation on His cross - so that we could receive it freely. Salvation is FREE to us today only because Jesus Christ already paid the cost of it for us.
There was a price for salvation - but the price was so great that no man on this earth was a worthy sacrifice, no man on this earth possessed the ability to pay for salvation. God Himself was the only who was worthy to pay the price of salvation, God Himself was the only one who could pay the price of salvation and He did. Jesus laid down His sinless, holy life, Jesus became the ransom, the price, for our salvation. The price of salvation for all mankind was paid one time for all mankind - once and for all by Christ Jesus - Hebrews 10:10.
If Jesus had not been the propitiation for our sins, paying the price once for all, laying down His life in exchange for the salvation of all mankind, then we would still be lost in our sins. But because Jesus came down from heaven, took on flesh, lived among us in the likeness of mankind, forsake all sin but took all our sins upon Himself on His cross, died for our sins, sacrificed Himself so that we might have eternal life, we are able to accept freely the gift of God, eternal life, eternal salvation.
Jesus Christ made the salvation of God free to us, because He loves us and desires us to be with Him forever. The salvation of God is free to us - to everyone - to whosoever believes in Him for their salvation - because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on His cross, who took the sins of mankind upon Himself, so that we could be set free from sin and death.
Jesus Christ did all the work required for our salvation that day long ago on His cross. Nothing else is required for salvation, nothing else can be added to the completed work that Christ did on His cross. All the requirements for salvation were completed in Jesus by Jesus.
Jesus finished all the requirements for salvation for all of mankind on His cross. Jesus completed His work - the work of Christ Jesus were the only works that could pay for our salvation - on His cross - and after He was through, Jesus said "IT IS FINISHED" - John 19:30. Jesus finished the work required by God for salvation to be given freely to all mankind.
The salvation of God is FREE. Nothing we could have done could have paid for salvation. Nothing is required to pay for salvation today, as Jesus has already paid the full price of salvation by Himself, by His life that He laid down for us on His cross. Absolutely nothing is required by us to receive the salvation of God - Romans 3:20. Absolutely no works are required to receive salvation - Titus 3:5. Because we are saved by the Grace of God nothing else is required - Ephesians 2:8-9.
By receiving God's gift of salvation, through faith in Christ Jesus, we are justified freely by His grace. God says that we are freely justified by His grace. We are freely justified because Jesus already paid the price for our salvation, when He bled and suffered on His cross, when He died for all the sins of all the people of the world, and when He rose again to life everlasting.
Nothing else is owed to God for salvation, the debt has been paid already, once for all, by His Son, Christ Jesus.
Jesus paid the price for our salvation, and made a way for us to be with God in Heaven for eternity. Jesus paid for our sins once for all, one-time for all people, never to be repeated.
A gift is free. No payment of any kind is required for a free gift.
God's gift of salvation is free to all who believe on His Son, Jesus Christ for salvation.
Salvation is for ALL people
The salvation of God is for ALL people. No matter what someone has told you, the word of God reads that no one is excluded from receiving the salvation of God.
No one owns God. No one owns God's salvation. No one but God says who and who cannot receive His salvation.
Anyone can receive salvation by faith in Christ Jesus. Salvation is the gift of God, given by God to any person who through faith accepts His salvation, by His Son, Jesus Christ.
God says that any person - whosoever - can ask for His free gift of salvation and receive it, no matter who you are, what you have done in the past, nationality, denomination, race, gender, no matter what - if they believe in Jesus Christ for salvation.
God says whosoever believes in His Son, Jesus Christ, shall not perish, but have everlasting life - John 3:16. Whosoever includes you, and me, and everyone born on this earth.
No person is excluded from choosing the salvation of God. God does not exclude anyone from receiving salvation, no matter what race, nationality, gender, material wealth, status, politics, or geographical location.
By grace we receive the salvation of God. By the grace of God we are saved - Ephesians 2:5, 8. Salvation is gifted by grace. The grace of God alone saves.
No one is prohibited from receiving salvation, no matter what you have done in your past. God cares about your future, your eternal destiny. God loves you so much, that He is willing to forgive all your past sins against Him, if you have faith in His Son for salvation.
Salvation is the gift of God for ALL people. God sent His Son, Jesus, into this world so that the world through Him might be saved - John 3:17. "The world" includes every human being alive.
Salvation is NOT received through any church or denomination membership or affiliation. A church does not save anyone - God saves people. A denomination does not save, God saves. Salvation is the act, the operation of God, performed upon one's heart and spirit and soul.
The salvation of God is received by the grace of God alone through faith in Jesus Christ, and received by anyone - whosoever believeth.
Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved! Praise the Lord we all can be saved!!
Salvation is a personal choice that everyone must decide and make themselves. God gifts every person that He breathes life into free will and a measure of faith to choose eternal life with Him.
Salvation is each individual's personal choice, no one but you can choose salvation for you. Your mother cannot choose salvation for you. Your grandmother cannot choose salvation for you. Your spouse, your children, your friends, your family, a pastor, a priest, a church, a denomination, - no person, place or thing - no one can choose your salvation for you - no one can accept salvation for you - you must choose to accept God's free gift of salvation by yourself.
Salvation is a choice for each person. God does not force anyone to accept His free gift of salvation. God gifted each person free will to choose or reject Him. God desires with all His heart that we choose Him, but He forces no one to come to Him.
Salvation is our choice, we either say yes to God, or we tell Him no. We either accept His free gift of salvation, or we don't.
Believing in God and accepting His free gift of salvation, eternal life by faith in Jesus Christ, is a choice each person must make themselves.
No one can decide to accept, or decline salvation for anyone else, the choice is ours alone.
No one can force anyone to accept salvation, because the choice of salvation is unseen, privately within one's own heart.
Salvation is by grace through faith. We accept God's gift of salvation within our heart, salvation is accepted by and in the heart - Romans 10:10.
We can tell the world that we are saved verbally by our mouth, through confessing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, but the operation of salvation by God is performed to our hearts, internally.
When God breathed life into our bodies, when we were born, we became a living soul, and God gave us free-will - Genesis 2:7.
When we reach the age of accountability, we must make a decision how to answer God's call.
God says that He calls every soul to Him - John 10:26; Acts 2:38-39; Romans 8:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; Ephesians 4:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:7; Revelation 3:20. When we hear God call us, this is the time we must make a decision regarding salvation.
God loves us and God calls us to Him. God calls every soul to Him, to receive His free gift of salvation. There is no one that has been born that was not called by God. God calls every person to Him. Everyone is called by God.
God desires us to be where He created us to be - which is with Him now and for all eternity - because God loves us and desires for us to be with Him now and forever.
The faith of every person to receive the gift of salvation from God is even given to us. God even gives us the faith we need to come to Him. God gives every soul a measure of faith to come to Him - Romans 12:3. Each person possess a measure of faith to answer God's call to Him.
God lays out before every person a choice - life and death - God says choose life - His life, choose His eternal salvation, so that we can know God and be with God, so that we can have an abundant life loving God and receiving His love, today and for all eternity - Deuteronomy 30:19.
The Scriptures tell us that God's salvation is conditional, for we are saved by grace through faith - Ephesians 2:8. God, grace and faith are conditions of salvation - Ephesians 2:8.
The salvation of God has always been conditional and will always be conditional, because God is the same yesterday, today and forever - Hebrews 13:8.
God does not give His gift of salvation to everyone, no matter what, salvation has conditions: certain conditions we must know, and certain conditions must be meet by us toward God, in order for us to receive His gift of salvation.
Salvation is by the grace of God, we are saved by grace. Salvation is received the exact same way by all people.
We ALL receive salvation the exact same way - by grace through faith.
God gives His salvation to ALL people the exact same way - by grace through faith.
The word of God reads that we ALL become the children of God by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.
Every person who is saved, received their salvation the exact same way, by the grace of Christ Jesus through faith in Jesus Christ.
There are NOT numerous ways to God, there is only one way to receive the salvation of God, which is by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.
No one comes to God, no one receives the salvation of God, no one receives eternal life, except through faith in Jesus Christ.
God does not save people differently around the world, or in different cultures, or in different nations, or in different races, or in different denominations, or during different time periods, because God is the same yesterday, today and forever more.
God saves all people the exact same way - by grace through faith. There is no other way to be saved, except by grace through faith.
No one is "more saved" than another, for we receive the same salvation from God. Children all grow at different rates, some children mature faster than others. This is the same for believers. The children of God all grow at different rates. Faithful believers grow in their faith and knowledge of God based on the fact that they diligently seek God and grow in their faith and grow in their knowledge of God. God promises His wisdom, knowledge, power and blessings to all who fervently seek Him and obey Him. The children of God increase in their faith based on the amount of time that they spend in fellowship with God.
Growth in the grace and faith of God does not come to believers automatically, but must be nurtured and cared for through constant communication with God, a daily fellowship with Christ Jesus through praise, worship, prayer, and study of God's word.
Salvation is eternal life with God in His Kingdom. Salvation is eternal life in the Kingdom of Heaven forevermore (Romans 6:23). By receiving the gift of salvation, we are granted inheritance into the Kingdom of God. A life of sin leads to eternal death (Romans 6:23)
Salvation is not eternal on this planet earth because this is not the Kingdom of Heaven. This earth will be destroyed and replaced with a new earth by God Himself (Revelation 21:1).
God is in Heaven (Ecclesiastes 5:2). God rules the Kingdom of Heaven. At our physical death or at the rapture of the church we will be forever with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:17). We will be with God in His Heavenly Kingdom (2 Timothy 4:18).
The gift of God is salvation which is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). There is only one eternal life given to man by God, and is through faith in Christ Jesus to salvation.
At the end of your faith, at the end of your earthly mortal life, if you have received the gift of God, then you will receive the salvation of our souls, you will receive the crown of life, everlasting life in the Kingdom of God - 1 Peter 1:9; James 1:12; John 3:16, 5:24, 6:40, 47; Romans 6:22.
Salvation is the plan of God to save us from sin and death.
The operation of God to give us salvation is a process, that requires: belief in God for salvation, our acknowledgment of our sins, confessing our sins to God, and then repenting of sin, turning away from sin to God, and then being converted by the operation of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, receiving forgiveness of our sins by God, sins confessed and repented of, and then asking for and receiving the salvation of our souls.
The process of salvation simplified is: confession - repentance - forgiveness - conversion - salvation - all performed by God in us, by grace through faith.
The end of our faith is the salvation of our souls (1 Peter 1:9). On our journey to the end of our faith we have our life here on earth. God desires to give us abundant life here, now. To experience the life God has purposed for us we must be set free from sin and from death, and this was accomplished by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on His cross. Jesus set us free from sin and death (John 8:36; Romans 8:2). Jesus put to death on His cross our captivity, our bondage to sin and released us, set us free to live with God now, today, and in the world to come.
Through the salvation of God we are given power from God to say no to sin throughout our entire lifetime on this earth.
Salvation empowers and enables us to live by faith in righteousness to God. Through the salvation of Christ Jesus we receive victory over sin and death. We receive the righteousness of Christ through salvation by grace through faith (Philippians 3:9).
There is no salvation apart from God. We are only with God through salvation. Without salvation you are without God. The Father and the Son are One God (John 10:30). There is no salvation apart from Christ Jesus. No one can believe in God the Father without believing in God the Son, as they are not without one another - the Father and the Son are inseparable - they are One (1 John 4:22-25). We are only in Christ through salvation.
Rejecting the gift of God forfeits your inheritance into the Kingdom of God. Forsaking God by not accepting His gift of salvation gains you entrance into eternal darkness, separated from God for all eternity.
There is no eternal life without receiving the salvation of God. Eternal life with God is received through salvation. There is NO salvation apart from abiding in Christ Jesus (John 3:36, 15:4-5; 2 John 1:9).
No one can abide in Christ Jesus and abide in sin (1 John 3:6); we choose one or the other to be master, ruler over our life. Sin and righteousness cannot co-exist. One either yields to righteousness or yields to sin. Jesus does not abide in sin. If you are attached to sin, then Jesus is not living, abiding with you. By remaining in Christ Jesus, by living and abiding in Jesus, we can resist any and all sin because we are given His power to do so.
There is no temptation of sin offered to us that God doesn't promise to make a way for us to escape (1 Corinthians 10:13). God holds the power over sin, not the enemy (Matthew 28:18; Romans 13:1). We either believe in God or believe in someone else. We must submit to God, believe He can get us out of the trap and bondage of sin, believe in Jesus, resist sin and God promises that the devil and his temptation of sin must flee from us (James 4:7). The power to submit to God, the power to resist the devil is ours for the asking (John 15:7); Jesus empowers all who come to Him by faith to do the impossible (Philippians 4:13).
Salvation is a lifetime journey, not a onetime event, not a feeling, not a onetime experience.
The word of God reads that we are to hear His words and learn from Him all the days of our lives (Deuteronomy 4:10, 17:19).
Salvation is for all the days that we live upon this earth, not a one day event (Deuteronomy 12:1).
Salvation is not just one day, but a lifetime of faith in Christ Jesus. Saving faith is a faith without end. Salvation is a lifetime journey of faith to God. Our journey to God begins with the gift of salvation, and continues throughout our life with us working out our own salvation - Philippians 2:12.
Salvation is living in faith to God all our lives. Faith is not receiving salvation and then leaving faith for something else. Salvation faith is living all our days on this earth for the one true LORD God, because surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever (Psalm 23:6).
We are to be confident and sure our salvation (Psalm 27:3). We are to continue in the faith grounded and settled, unmovable, rooted and built up, established in the faith (Colossians 1:23; 2:7). We are to desire the salvation of God above all things (Psalm 27:4).
Through the saving faith of salvation, God promises to hear us always, have mercy on us, answer us and comfort us (Psalm 27:7).
Through the saving faith of salvation, we learn how to truly seek God, enter into His presence, worship with God in spirit and in truth, behold His wondrous works, receive His knowledge and wisdom, grow in grace and in faith, and truly receive His love.
We should never forget, that the saving faith of salvation we experience here on this planet is like a drop of water in the ocean, compared to what we will share with our LORD when we see Him face to face in His Heavenly Kingdom (1 Corinthian 2:9).
We are to love the LORD our God and serve the LORD all the days of our lives in holiness and righteousness (Luke 1:75; Deuteronomy 6:5).
Our salvation is every day with the Lord. Every day we are to confess Jesus Christ is Lord and every day we are to step out in faith toward God. The just, the saved, all who have received salvation, live by faith each and every day of our life (Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38).
Our salvation is the righteousness of God and is revealed from faith to faith (Romans 1:17) - through a lifetime journey of faith that doesn't end until we arrive home in Heaven (Philippians 3:20) to be forever with our Lord God and Saviour Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
From faith to faith, not from faith back to unbelief, because remember unbelief separates anyone from God.
The saved in Christ Jesus, all who have received the salvation of God, live by faith every day, love God all the days of their life, continue in the path of faith and righteousness every day, stepping out in faith daily toward our eternal home.
Salvation is not for one day, or a few months, or a few years. Salvation is never ending, salvation is eternal.
We reach our eternal destiny by one step of faith to the next step of faith, living by faith every day (Romans 1:17).
Faith never stops, faith never ends, faith is continuous. Faith that ends is dead, faith that stops is dead, without faith is unbelief, to be faithless is to be unbelieving. Our lack of faith, our unbelief separates us from God. Do not be deceived without faith you are without God. Apart from faith you are apart from God. Separated from faith you are separated from God.
What you are attached to in this life when you die, is what you will be attached to in the life to come. If you are abiding in Christ Jesus, attached to God, then you will be attached to God in your eternity. You are not permitted to switch teams after you die. The one you are serving when you die is the one who you will serve for all eternity. There are only two eternities: the one with God and the one without God.
If you are with God when you die then you will be with God in eternity. If you have chosen a life separated from God, a life apart from obedience to God, without Jesus, a life detached from God, then you will be without God in your eternity. It is your choice based on your life now, today; not based on some past experience; and not tomorrow because no one is promised a tomorrow.
God meant for His salvation to be permanent, but human beings make it temporary. If you abandon your faith, you are unbelieving, and the unbelieving will not see God (Hebrews 3:19).
Not everyone that says they are saved, have received the salvation of God. There is a very popular false teaching that states you can make up your own rules of salvation, that anyone is saved who says they are, you can live anyway you want to and be saved, that God doesn't care as long as you say that you are saved, but BEWARE, this is not of God (Colossians 2:8). God says that the saved in Christ live by faith in righteousness all the days of their lives. You know the doctrine of Christ is true, continue in them (1 Timothy 4:16). Don't believe in other people -believe in God and His word - eternity is too long to be wrong.
Abandoning the faith for the things of this world is unbelief, and unbelief separates anyone from God for eternity (1 Timothy 4:1).
God tells us all who have received His gift of salvation, to examine ourselves and work out our own salvation (2 Corinthians 13:5-6).
Our salvation is the will of God.
The will of God is for all people everywhere to obtain His free gift of salvation. The word of God tells us all that God has not appointed us to wrath, but God has appointed us all to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ so that we should live together with Him.
God created us - all of mankind - you and me - to be with Him forever. God made me to live together with Him. In order to be with God we must be saved from sin and death through faith in Jesus Christ, which is salvation.
God loves us so much. God desires us to be where He created us to be which is with Him now and for all eternity.
The will of God is for us to obtain salvation by faith in Christ Jesus, so that we can live together with Him for eternity. All people were created by God and for God, for His good pleasure. God made us to live with Him.
The will of God is NOT for us to perish (2 Peter 3:9). God does not want any person to die in their sins, but that we should be redeemed through His Son, reconciled to God through faith in Jesus, so that we can receive eternal life, so that we can forever be with Him in His Paradise, in the Kingdom of Heaven for all eternity.
The salvation of God is everlasting, eternal. The salvation of God is NOT temporary, because God is the author of eternal salvation (Hebrews 5:9).
The salvation of God is everlasting salvation (Isaiah 45:17). The eternal salvation of God is eternal life, life without end (Romans 6:23).
The saved in Christ Jesus, all who have received the gift of God will pass from death of this life into everlasting life in the Kingdom of God (John 5:24). Passing from death in this world to eternal life into the Kingdom of Heaven, is the promise of God for all people who choose His free gift of salvation (John 5:24).
For all believers, the instant physical death collapses our earthly bodies, our spirit will be present with our Lord God in Heaven, to be with Him forevermore (2 Corinthians 5:8).
Salvation is not a single moment in our life, not one single day when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, but salvation is faith in Christ Jesus all the days of our lives. Saving faith, salvation is faith without end.
Choosing to receive the gift of God, choosing salvation, is choosing a Christ-minded lifestyle, is choosing to live a new way of life, choosing not to live our old life, but a new life in Christ Jesus, putting on Christ every day, living for Christ, not living for self, all the days of our lives.
The day we accept the salvation of God is the beginning of our life with God, the beginning of salvation. Salvation begins with our accepting the salvation of God. Our life in Christ begins with salvation, when we are saved by grace through faith.
Our life in Christ begins and ends with salvation through faith. Christianity is Christ life-changing, Christ lifestyle, Christ life-thinking, Christ life-attitude, Christ life-motivation, Christ life-purpose, and being a complete Christ life-person.
Christianity is living our lives through Christ, by Christ, in Christ, for Christ, and with Christ for ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES; and NOT just for one day, not just for today, but for the next day and the next, and for all eternity. (Galatians 2:20; 3:26; 4:7; 5:1; 2 Corinthians 1:21; 5:17-18; Ephesians 1:5; 2:7; Philippians 4:7; Romans 3:24; 8:1-2; 8:39; 2 Timothy 1:1,9,13 ; 2:10).
If you have eternal faith in God for your salvation - never ending faith - that He is all He is - faith that Jesus will save you from sin and death - faith that God saves and God loves you, then you have eternal salvation.
We can know we have eternal salvation because we are promised it by the Word of God (1 John 5:13).
Believers have assurance of their salvation affirmed by the Holy Spirit to our spirit. God's Spirit assures our spirit that we have been saved. God desires to give His salvation and His assurance of salvation to all people who come to Him and ask Him. God speaks to our spirit and assures us that we are saved.
