Verse of the day! Have one, share!
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
And then will I profess unto them, I never new you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Those are the words spoken by Jesus. The way Jesus is saying here using the word "never" it clearly shows that salvation can not be lost, once someone is saved it is sealed forever. Jesus never used the words "I used to know you but ....... " also the words " I don't now you " are not used becouse that would imply that there is still hope for future change.
Looking through the Old Testament I see that the covenants between God and Moses, King David, King Solomon are still holding up to what I said . Even though all of them transgressed God's commandments they still have God's security in heaven and the only punishment to them is done on earth. Now in the New Testament our security is even more emphasized becouse we live by faith. Here is the most twisted evil doctrine put out by catholic church having people constantly praying for their own salvation. Nothing says "I don't have faith in God" more than continuous repetitive prayers for your own salvation. This is just pure evil selfish with an ironic twist : pray for the dead becouse their destination is sealed so it doesn't matter anyway, it's just more wasted time.
Here is the words Jesus said John 15:12-18 in verse 13 "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." The apostols died preaching salvation to the lost people , they laid down their life to save the lost people, they understood what Jesus commanded them. So according to Jesus this is how a true salvation looks like: repent of your sins, say a prayer for your own salvation once and get bussy to save others even if you have to die in the process. So if anyone struggles with sin, don't worry, your salvation is secure becouse constantly working to save others you are showing your faith and the more time you spend saving people and spreading the gospel the les time you have for sinning. Matthew 16:25
In Luke 9:49-50 and in Mark 9:38-40 Jesus in his own words gives assurance of salvation by correcting the apostols and not questioning who the other person is. Here we clearly see that what matters to God is the fruit of the good works that the other person did by helping others freeing them from the devil possession in the name of Jesus. I can clearly see here that Jesus is going to gladly receive such a lonely good worker without questioning the sins or repentance of this person becouse the works speaks for themselves.
May God bless you all with wisdom to do good works for Him , more works for God less time for sinning.
John 17:3 (KJV)
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
1 John 5:20 (KJV)
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
Titus 2:13 (KJV)
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
As the verse says why Christ suffered for our sins, the just (Christ) for the unjust (all of us on this earth) then wouldn't you think it's important when your calling upon the name of the Lord as Romans 10:13 says we should, is it not important to let Jesus Christ know why your calling upon his name that you recognize you are the sinner in 1 Peter 3:18. My experience, when the Lord Saved me was me dropping my pride and humbling myself finally after years and coming to him as the sinner he suffered and died for, period. And there are those that choose to slander and deny the word of God and therefore hate Christ and those that belong to His body. You know I heard Peter Ruckman say once there a some that will literally kick and punch and scream their way into hell, they want it that bad. This is just a little side note the Lord put on my heart, there is so many lies and hate for those that teach and preach His word.
31The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
32He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
33I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
35Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.  I and my Father are one.
2 Chronicles 34:21Go, inquire of the LORD for me, and for them that are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out upon us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do after all that is written in this book.
2 Corinthians 7:9Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 11For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
2 Corinthians 5:19-20
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
