( MUST READ) Four Reasons Why We Cant Lose Our Salvation by jiggaz(m): 7:58pm On Jul 29, 2015
I just saw this article and i decided to share it...



After believing into Christ, the first frustration
to our Christian life is to doubt that we’re
really saved. I addressed this in a previous
post entitled, “ How Can I be Sure I’m Saved? ”
A second frustration to our Christian life is the
plaguing doubt that we can lose our
salvation. In this post we’ll consider four
reasons why we can boldly say that we can
never lose our salvation.

Related to this, there are two key verses, John
10:28-29 , that would be good to remember.
Here the Lord Jesus said of His sheep,
“And I give to them
eternal life, and they shall
by no means perish
forever, and no one shall
snatch them out of My
hand. My Father, who has
given them to Me, is
greater than all, and no
one can snatch them out
of My Father’s hand.”
Now that we’ve read these verses, let’s
continue with four reasons why we can boldly
say that we cannot lose our salvation.


First, the eternal life the
Lord gives us will never
run out.

The Lord has given us “eternal life.” Eternal
life is not a boarding pass that can be lost or
stolen. It is God’s divine life that is eternally
ours based on our divine birth. Christians talk
about being “born again,” but, according to
the Bible, what does that really mean?
John 1:12-13 say, “But as
many as received Him, to
them He gave the
authority to become
children of God, to those
who believe into His
name, who were begotten
[or born]…of God.”

So those who receive Christ by believing into
His name are born of God with the life of God
to become children of God. Since, as believers
in Christ, we’re born of God, we can’t be “un-
born.” To illustrate, no matter how much a
child offends their parents, the parents still
can’t take back the life they’ve imparted into
that child. It’s the same with God.
Second, the hands of the
Father and the Son will
never fail.

The second point in John 10:28-29 is the
keeping hands of God the Son and God the
Father.

God’s hands will never fail so our
salvation is eternally secure and we can never
lose it. We have such a Shepherd and such a
Father to keep us and protect us. Their hands
are stronger than anything—stronger than
Satan and surely stronger than we are.


Third, God’s eternal will
that initiated our
salvation will never
change.

According to His will, God initiated our
salvation in eternity past. Ephesians 1:4-5 tells
us that before we were born or had a chance
to do anything good or bad, God already chose
us and predestinated us,
“Even as He chose us in
Him before the
foundation of the world to
be holy and without
blemish before Him in
love, predestinating us
unto sonship through
Jesus Christ to Himself,
according to the good
pleasure of His will. ”

God chose us in eternity past and our
believing in Christ was based on His
irrevocable calling. God has called us that we
might be saved and He will not take His
calling back. Romans 11:29 says, “For the
gracious gifts and the calling of God are
irrevocable .”

At times, we may backslde in unfaithfulness,
offend God by our sins, and temporarily lose
our fellowship with Him. However, God’s plan
for us will never change. Since it was His
eternal will to choose us, predestinate us and
call us, our salvation is secured.

Fourth, Christ’s promise
to never cast us out and
to keep us can not be
broken.

This is what John 6:37 and 39 have to say
about our eternal salvation,

“All that the Father gives
Me will come to Me, and
him who comes to Me I
shall by no means cast
out …And this is the will
of Him who sent Me, that
of all which He has given
Me I should lose nothing
but should raise it up in
the last day.”

Praise the Lord, God’s word will never fail!
Christ promised not to cast us out and to keep
us. We should simply believe God’s word, rest
on Christ’s promise, and praise God that our
salvation is eternally secure.

“Lord, we praise You for
giving us Your eternal
life. Thank you, that as
those who have been born
of You, we can never be
un-born. We are God’s
children forever. Praise
you, that Your strong
hands are firmly holding
us. Thank you that Your
promise to keep us and
not cast us out assures us
that our salvation is
secure. Praise You, dear
Lord!”

Don't mind them my sister.... God gave us Salvation as a GIFT and when a gift is given to somebody, you are not expected to pay anything for it else, it will no longer be a gift. And from this article, God have assured us that nothing whatsoever will snatch us from his hands..... We are secured in His hands Hallelujah!!!! grin

Before i discovered the message of Grace, i was a very depressed Christian because of all those fake visions of Hell Fire!! lool . Anytime, i read any of the visions of Hell prophecy, i will be depressed for like one week. 2012 was the worst year for me cos that was the year those fake prophesies were at the peak, soo many people died and woke, and they all came back with warnings about Hell!!! lool. It wasn't funny then, cos at a time, i started asking God why he created me when He knew He will still send me to Hell even after my so-called Self Righteousness..... Dat Sister Linda's Testimony divided the Body of Christ. But thank God for Jesus, many people have now realised the Truth. And the Gospel of Grace which is the TRUE GOSPEL of Christ have started spreading all over the world.

I first heard the True Gospel of Grace last year and i was shocked!!!! lool . I couldn't believe that God would love me like that. Then i started reading books on GRACE & SALVATION by different men of God and i became LIBERATED!!! Cos i now know the true meaning of the death of Jesus Christ and His finished Works!!!! I now have inner peace and i am more alive now...... I really thank God for knowledge and am glad you know the Truth also....

And God doesn't even ask us to come collect this gift, He brings this salvation to us. That is the beauty of it. God's sovereignty rules over our wills.

Am so glad salvation is of the Lord smiley And also happy that you know this truth.

Amen! i also had similar experience. And true nothing can be more depressing than hearing those tales of heaven and hell. It made me almost despair in Christ cos i was a victim too, but God who will not allow his children remain on the way of error intervened greatly and i was liberated. I now understand the perfect work of Christ on the cross. smiley

Philipians 2 vs 12 - work out your salvation with fear and trembling
1peter 1 vs 17 - if you (the saved christia) call on the Father who without respect of persons judges every man's work PASS THE TIME OF YOUR SOJOURNING ON EARTH IN FEAR
listen up young man. If you once used to have that fear about hell and also about the terror of God. Then that was the Spirit of God trying to let you know how awful it is for believers to commit sin and take it lightly. GOD hates sin and will never allow it to go unpunished. So a christian to be in fear and trembling always means he reasons with God how terrible sin is.
Now you say youre living in liberty right? Things of eternity dont bother you again, you commit sin and you treat it lightly. Then if so youre truly liberated from the gospel back to darkness. REPENT AND BE RESTORED

Abeg shift, no amount of your quoting of the Bible will convince me again. I was once like you, thinking that most Christians will go to Hell and believed the fake prophets. Mind you, i still care soo much about Eternity cos thats what Apostle Paul told us in the Bible as our HOPE. The difference now is dat whenever i think of Eternity, i have this PEACE & JOY that Jesus should come quickly so that we can enter into His Rest.
It is you i will be praying for, so that God will bring u out from Darkness. The Gospel of Grace is the True Gospel. So many Nigerian Pastors preach the Gospel of Law & Grace, which is another Gospel dat Paul was talking about. We are no longer under the Law!!!!! You people are the ones mocking God's Grace by telling Him that the Death of Christ on the Cross is not enough dat you have to do your own works....... But guess what!!!!! Your Salvation have nothing to do with your WORKS!!!! And to sustain your Salvation also have nothing to do with your WORKS!!!! Its the gift of God!!!!!!!! Working out your Salvation is different from Working for your Salvation cos you its God dat gives us the gift of Salvation!!!!!! The problem with you people is dat you understand the Bible differently..... no comprehension at all!!!!! Aaaahh!!!! i don tire!!!!!!!
And please Sir, don't quote me, i don't argue, the Gospel is what it is!!!!!!! I no fit shout!!!!!

You are the false teacher and the bible calls you a heretic! The bible is very clear on this one that our SALVATION IS BY GRACE AND NOT OF US.

And just like y'all do, when you cannot fathom the truth of God's grace and also with your burning desires to esteem your wretched selves above others, you throw those scriptures that do not even support your blasphemy that a loving father will cast away the child he has birthed because of one wrong to our face. You have been duped and need to get yourselves taught thoroughly. Show me one scripture that APPEARS to say salvation can be lost and i will show you many more that expressly state we are safe for ever in God's arm.

All the glory going to God for he performs all these wonderful works in us!

Go ahead and part yourself on the back and give yourself some glory for being the co-saviour of yourself. And let's see how far you reach with that.

But depart from me, false prophet.

Anytime i remember my Salvation, i am always Happy and will keep on Praising God for loving me and making me believe in Jesus Christ..... Its a good feeling.... Through one man's sin ( Adam ) mankind was condemned, and through another man's death on the cross ( Jesus ) mankind was redeemed and saved... Salvation is a gift, you just have to receive it and believe in Jesus...... God is LOVE..... His wish is not that any man should perish, but that we should have eternal life by coming to Him through Jesus Christ....

They are so lost and confused they do not even know what the scripture is all about. I was even expecting him, that one that calls himself a prophet, to explain away those scriptures in your original post to mean something else and not eternal security. But he would not because he dares not alter what has been explicitly stated.

Bunch of confused men parading themselves as men of God. Mcheeeeew.

The reasons are too numerous. Another is that His Spirit abides with us forever, He is the down payment for our salvation and the guarantee of it. We are completely saved no matter our present state of growth and we are simply waiting for that day when it will be actualized.
