ETERNAL LIFE MEANS ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED OR THERE WOULD BE NO ETERNAL LIFE!
There are those who teach that a believer could fall from grace and lose his salvation and they search for different translations, commentaries to find verses that say what they want it to say rather than what God ordained it to say. There is nothing wrong with using these various materials for research of God’s Truth but all too often it is manipulated. It is the Holy Spirits job to give us understanding of what Jesus teaches and to reveal the Truth. Millennialism has a real problem accepting the old ancient ways of the Bible.
UNDERSTAND THAT ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE IF IT IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE!
John 10:28 And I give them eternal life; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us — eternal life.
Eternal life is a gift Jesus gives when one receives Jesus into their heart (Romans 6:23 The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) an confesses that he is a sinner.
1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Romans 10:9-13 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
To those who are trying so hard to sound so intellectual and theological to the point they actually say and believe that no one can understand the Bible unless someone like themselves explains it to them. However, the Bible tells plainly what God has to say about why He uses preachers.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18-21 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
The Bible always explains itself and reveals to our hearts what God wants us to know.
Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”
Dear heavenly Father write upon the fleshly table of our hearts Your spiritual truths and revelations as You promised You would thousands of years ago and even now in the new covenant according to Your own Word write your truth in our hearts and minds revealing Your glory to us individually. In Jesus name, amen!
