    Temporal Salvation?

    Hi and appreciate your reply! I do believe in eternal assurance, otherwise one is merely just wondering about it and not having anything to grow on.

    Temporal Salvation?

    Amen, and I believe this is a good example: Jhn 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit,.... There are two sorts of branches in Christ the vine; the one sort are such who have only an historical faith in him, believe but for a time, and are removed; they are such who only profess to...

    Keep Moving

    Though genuine believers in the Lord Jesus’ expiation for their sin presently possess salvation, what one understands concerning the issue of its permanency does not affect its work of eternal redemption, because spiritual growth doctrine is a separate issue from that of soteriological doctrine...

    Temporal Salvation?

    HI, and thanks for the comments! When Paul wrote "lest he also spare not thee," I believe it was a means of identifying one's self. That if pride (high-minded) rules you it's a warning that you could be a hypocrite. But this is for us to know because God already knows. For those in Christ, God...

    Temporal Salvation?

    Amen, and thanks for your input! I believe God wants believers to know that they are saved, otherwise there is no encouragement in wondering. We can't have this certainty about others (would require knowing them as God knows them), but each can be certain concerning themselves (Rom 8:16); and...

    Temporal Salvation?

    I believe it comes down to the fact that there are two groups of people professing Christianity. Those who genuinely profess the faith by unceasingly manifesting it by their continued lifestyle of godliness; and those who falsely profess faith in Christianity (Jas 2:18) who cease from appearing...

    Temporal Salvation?

    Appreciate the passages! I suspect that many see eternal life as something received in the next life, but eternal life is not something given in the next life, but something to continue on with. We miss receiving eternal life if not received in this life!

    Temporal Salvation?

    The most understandable and encouraging attribute concerning salvation is that of its permanency, after all, it is called “eternal salvation” (Heb 5:9). What part of salvation is temporary, seeing that one of the meanings of redemption is that of being saved from “eternal damnation” (Mar 3:29)...

    “I See the Son”

    It is truly beyond answering why it must be that the majority of mankind has and will continue to reject that which is the most important in this life—and the next! God’s great love, especially for those whom He knows will choose Him, is well demonstrated in the fact that He is allowing the...

    That's one of the primary confirmations that demonstrates the permanency of faith and salvation. One in whom God dwells always brings him through!

    Open Heart Surgery

    At the point of rebirth we are given “all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2Pe 1:3); and from then on the Spirit ensures that we will learn “the things that have been freely given to us by God” (1Co 2:12). This will “not be in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy...

    Prize Occupation

    When Saul, in his zeal persecuting he Church, was on his way to Damascus, the Lord in glory met him—that same Lord Jesus, Whom Saul had with his nation rejected and cast out, but now risen from the dead and glorified, appeared to him. It was then Saul discovered the true values of his precious...
