(There is no heaven with a little corner of hell in it)
BOOK OF LIFE
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.Rev 20:13
I want to start out by saying that eternal security does not exist in the bible. Fifteen times the book of life is mentioned in the bible and the term “blotted out” is used in these passages. If your name is in the book of life and all of our names are, it can be blotted out.
Revelation 3:5 – He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Exodus 32:33 – And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.
CAN A BELIEVER STILL SIN LIKE THE DEVIL AND BE SAVED?
to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the Book of Life the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come.”
Can person can continue to murder, rape, hate, fornicate, do drugs, and still be saved as long as they believe in Jesus, right? Eternal Security Heresy. This heresy says that once you have believed on Jesus, then it doesn’t matter what you do or how much sin you commit, you will still go to heaven when you die. This is a lie.
If the Eternal Security Proponent used the excuse that a true believer would never truly live a life like that, they will be teaching a doctrine of immorality because the VERY message they would be preaching to others would give other people the wrong thinking that they can sin and still be saved
When Eternal Security Proponents say that a person can never lose their salvation by anything that they do, then they are going to think they CAN sin and still be saved (Thereby giving them a license to sin).
SINNERS BY OCCUPATION
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1John 1:8
Once we repent of our sins and give our lives to Jesus we are no longer sinners. All of our sins are under the blood Jesus. Is it possible to sin after we are saved? Yes
Sinning is missing the mark, missing the bull’s eye and this we all do. When we sin God is faithful and just to forgive our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” John 1:9
However there are those who delight in iniquity and are sinners by occupation; this is what they live to do. They take the blood off of the lintel and place it on the threshold and trample underfoot
“For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.Heb 10:26-31
NO ONE CAN PLUCK YOU OUT OF GOD’S HANDS BUT YOU CAN WALK OUT
No man can pluck you out of God’s hands but you can walk out if you want to
My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me. 28I give them eternal life,and they will never perish. No one can snatchthem out of My hand. 29My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all. No one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.…John 10:27-29
“It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because [Or repentance while] to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace. Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.”
Calvinists, who deny that salvation can ever be lost, reason on the subject in a marvelous way. They tell us, that no virgin’s lamp can go out; no promising harvest be choked with thorns; no branch in Christ can ever be cut off from unfruitfulness; no pardon can ever be forfeited, and no name blotted out of God’s book! They insist that no salt can ever lose its savor; nobody can ever “receive the grace of God in vain”; “bury his talents”; “neglect such great salvation”; trifle away “a day of grace”; “look back” after putting his hand to the gospel plow. Nobody can “grieve the Spirit” till He is “quenched,” and strives no more, nor “deny the Lord that bought them”; nor “bring upon themselves swift destruction.” Nobody, or body of believers, can ever get so lukewarm that Jesus will spew them out of His mouth. They use reams of paper to argue that if one ever got lost he was never found. John 17:12; that if one falls, he never stood. Rom. 11:16-22 and Heb. 6:4-6; if one was ever “cast forth,” he was never in, and “if one ever withered,” he was never green. John 15:1-6; and that “if any man draws back,” it proves that he never had anything to draw back from. Heb. 10:38,39; that if one ever “falls away into spiritual darkness,” he was never enlightened. Heb 6:4-6; that if you “again get entangled in the pollutions of the world,” it shows that you never escaped. 2 Pet 2:20; that if you “put salvation away” you never had it to put away, and if you make shipwreck of faith, there was no ship of faith there!! In short they say: If you get it, you can’t lose it; and if you lose it you never had it. May God save us from accepting a doctrine, that must be defended by such fallacious reasoning!”
May God rid the Body of Christ of this devilish doctrine, which offers false hope to the ungodly.
