Many even professing Christian persons are falsely still relying on isolated verses out of thousands to support their imaginary eternal forgiveness, salvation, to the false exclusions of the rest of the Bible.
Merely Believing waht the Bible says still is not salvation,; There is a serious realy big difference: between a mere 1) mental assents to Jesus being the Son of God, the sole provision for the forgiveness of all of man’s sins vs. 2) to believe all that he Jesus also commands us all and advises us to do— ie. to realy obey Him. Even the demons now do believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and they tremble; and that is not eneough, for we must not believe in Him, Jesus Christ , but we all must daily believe and do continually all what He tells us to do till the end.;
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. James 1:22
◦Now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed. Rom 13:11
◦Continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Phil 2:12
◦But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. 1 Thes 5:8
◦For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved the cross is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18.
◦Godly sorrow produces repentance that leads to salvation. 2 Cor 7:10
◦Do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption. Eph 4:30
◦For we are the sweet aroma of Christ unto God, to those who are being saved. 2 Cor 2:15
◦We are made partakers of Christ, if we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end. Heb 3:14
◦For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise. Heb 10:36
◦We desire that every one of you show the same diligence in realizing the full assurance of hope to the end.
So that you are not slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Heb 6:11-12;
Sadly still for most persons There is no fear of God before their eyes. Rom 3:1
Indeed, to them you are like a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument,for they hear your words but they do not do [obey] them. Eze 33:32
Jesus had said to first seek the the Kingdom of God and His righteousness;
1 Sam 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
To believe is to obey; if you are not obedient, your belief is only the hypocrites’ lip service. Obedience leads to receiving the Holy Spirit — Obedience leads to righteousness — Obedience leads to salvation.;
Jesus said: all who sin [practice lawlessness] will be gathered out of His Kingdom and cast into the fire, where there will be great wailing and gnashing of teeth. Mat 13:41-42
Why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?
But the person who hears and does not put my words into practice, is like a man who built a house upon the earth without a foundation;.. and the ruin of that house was great. Luke 6:46-49;
To personally have God Son Jesus Christ dwelling in you is to also possess the Son and Father in your heart in a sufficient measure that he is your true Lord directing your thoughts, words and deeds, thus becoming become free from all wrong doings, sin.;
For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil. 1 John 3:8;
Unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Luke 13:3,5
And that repentance and release from bondage of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.;Luke 24:47
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and how to live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;….that he might redeem us from all iniquity [lawless deeds, sin], and purify for himself a people who are his very own, zealous for good works. Tit 2:11-14.;
Personal Repentance is an onward, daily event.But sadly too often inward cross of self-denial has been forgotten, dismissed, ignored, and treated with contempt; yet Jesus told us repeatedly that no one can be his disciple, or is worthy of him, without carrying their cross and following him.;
All Scripture is Given by Inspiration of GOD, and is Profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness: That the man of GOD may be Perfect, Thoroughly Furnished unto All Good Works.~2 Timothy 3:16-17~♥~
Too many of Today’s ministers have eyes full of adultery, [love of money, not God], who cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls; they have exercised their hearts in covetous practices, they are cursed children. They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness… For whom black darkness is reserved. For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. While they promise them freedom, they themselves are servants of corruption; for by whatever a man is overcome, he is enslaved. 2 Peter 2:12-19.;
Like the Pharisees, too many of today’s ministers shut the kingdom of heaven against men; for they neither go in themselves, nor do they allow those who are entering to go in. Mat 23:13
Like the Pharisees, too many of today’s ministers like to walk about in long robes and love to be greeted [with honor] in places where people congregate and love the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at feasts.
