    Sister Christi, may CHRIST in us grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    You can NEVER do anything for God; YOU BECOME ONE WITH HIM, he is everything; SPIRIT, LIFE and TRUTH, he needs nothing or no one.

    Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

    He came To GIVE and TO DO everything; SPIRIT, LIFE and TRUTH, for us.

    He doesn't do this because of who we are; he does it because of who HE IS, our FAITHFUL Father.

    He is CREATING sons and daughters in HIS IMAGE; Spirit, Life and Truth.

    Psalms 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy SPIRIT, they are created, thou renewest the face of the earth.

    1 Peter 1:23 ....You are BORN AGAIN (created) by the WORD(S) (SPIRIT, LIFE and TRUTH) of God ....

    Isaiah 63:9 In all their (creations) affliction he (Christ) was afflicted, and the angel (Christ) of his (the Father's) presence SAVED them (creation): in his (the Father's) love and in his (the Father's) pity he (the Father; through Christ, the angel of the Father's presence) SAVED them (creation); and he (the Father through Christ) bare them (creation), and CARRIED them (creation) all the days of old.

    BELIEVE

    Philippians 1:29 For unto US it is GIVEN in the behalf of Christ (Spirit, Truth and Life), not only to BELIEVE ON HIM (Spirit, Truth and Life), but also to suffer (in the flesh) for his (name) sake.

    1 Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another (no one, we are all alike)? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive (nothing, all is a gift (given) of God)? now if thou didst receive (be given) it, why dost thou glory, as if thou didst not receive (be given) it?

    Thank you brother S. Spencer for your very worthy comments & the Scriptures you cited. Indeed, our salvation is all of Grace, only through His Blood, & we're kept secure till we see our Saviour; 1 Peter 1:5, "Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."

    Our obedience & faith-generating works are manifest by the indwelling, out-working Holy Spirit. Romans 8:1; Galatians 5:16, 25.

    Hello Leonard. What you've shared & what that Baptist Church has declared, I believe is dependent on whose viewpoint is considered; that of God or of man. That is, both that Baptist Church & Adam's comments are correct.

    If you consider 1 Peter 1:2, "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ", we can clearly see that the Elect (i.e. God's chosen) are in that blessed position because God has selected some according to His Foreknowledge. In other words, all whom God has foreordained to be His elect, will be saved. Now this is in God's department, so to speak, & not ours.

    We cannot concern ourselves with what God knows, as sinful man must be in a position to hear the Gospel, be convicted of sin, & respond. So, the one who does hear & believe, can be assumed to be part of the "elect according to God's Foreknowledge". That is, God knows beforehand who will respond to the call. Those who reject the Gospel are outside of grace & can never be saved. Our "choice in the matter" is still a conscious decision we make, but made in concert with the Holy Spirit's working. Without the Gospel & without the Holy Spirit = no salvation. Many try to come another way; they're imposters.

    In hyper-calvinism, God's election is taken to an extreme; where it even becomes unnecessary to share the Gospel, as God's choosing requires no response from man. Does that Church evangelize? If it does, then it's clear that they expect the sorrowful sinner to repent, believe, & be saved. The sinner's 'choice' is already in God's Plan to save him. We could ask the opposite question: can a sorrowful sinner be rejected by God because he is not foreordained to be saved? John 6:37, "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." There's God's Promise of election & receiving a penitent sinner.

    Basic Distinctions between Prophecy and the Mystery (C.R. Stam) - continued:

    8) Prophecy mainly concerns nations as such ( Isaiah 2:4; Ezekiel 37:21-22)

    Rightly Divided ( 2 Timothy 2:15) From "Things That DIFFER!":

    8) The Mystery Concerns individuals ( Romans 10:12-13; 2 Corinthians 5:14-17)

    9) Prophecy concerns blessings, both material and spiritual, on earth ( Isaiah 2:3-4; Isaiah 11:1-9; etc.)

    RDf

    9) The Mystery Concerns "all spiritual blessings in The Heavenlies" ( Ephesians 1:3; Colossians 3:1-3)

    10) Prophecy concerns Christ's Coming to the earth ( Isaiah 59:20; Zechariah 14:4)

    RDf

    10) The Mystery Explains Christ's absence from the earth ( Ephesians 1:20-24; Colossians 3:1-3)

    11) In prophecy, salvation by Grace through faith alone is not contemplated ( Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 23:1-3; Luke 7:29-30; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; James 2:17)

    RDf

    11) Salvation "By GRACE Through faith" Alone lies at The Very Heart Of The Mystery! ( Romans 3:21-26; Romans 4:5; Ephesians 2:8-9)

    12) The proclamation of the prophetic program committed particularly to the twelve ( Matthew 10:5-7; Acts 1:6-8; Acts 3:19-26)

    RDf

    12) The proclamation of The Mystery program committed particularly to Paul ( Ephesians 3:1-3; Ephesians 3:8-9; Colossians 1:24-27)

    13) The prophetic program revealed through many of God's servants Luke 1:70; 2 Peter 1:21)

    RDf

    13) The Mystery revealed through one man: Paul! ( Galatians 1:1; Galatians 1:11-12; Galatians 2:2; Galatians 2:7; Galatians 2:9; Ephesians 3:2-3)

    14) Old Testament writers frequently did not understand the prophecies made through them ( Daniel 12:8-10; 1 Peter 1:10-12)

    RDf

    14) Paul Both understood And longed that others might understand The Mystery revealed through him ( Ephesians 1:15-23; Ephesians 3:14-21; Colossians 1:9-10; Colossians 2:1-3)

    Hi Kevin.

    Great question, We have the verse you mentioned.

    God

    1 Peter 1:21. Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

    Holyspirit.

    Romans 8:11. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    Jesus.

    John 10:17-18. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

    No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

    God bless.
  • Kevin on 1 Peter 1
    Question: In 1 Peter 1-21, who specifically is "God" that raised Christ? Is it a.) the Father, or b.) the Holy Spirit, or c.) Christ himself, or d.) some combination of the Trinity?

    God bless you and all on this site.

    Thanks you for the clarification.

    The Word of God also tells us all through the N.T.(letters by the way to already established churches) to beware of sedition, fables, traditions of men, things that would turn the hearts of saints, now if they're already saved why the New Test? Why not stop at the cross? Well why have any scriptures period "before the foundations of the world were framed the Lamb was slain"(I paraphrased it) 1 Peter 1:19-21. Roman's1:16-32 tells us that we can be turned over to a reprobate mind. Why Gal.the 6th chapter? If Why have faith?( listed as one of the fruits of the spirit). 2 Thess. Chapter 2 tells(the church of Thessalonica and us because ALL scripture is given to us for reproof and instruction 2 Tim. 3-16) there will be a falling away, from what?...and that iniquity doeth already work, why caution us?

    Hello Hui Ning Wu,

    I would like to offer another perspective to your comment: "And once you are saved, you cannot lose your salvation no matter what you do!"

    I ask, is this true? If true, I would love to commit sins tonight just for fun, because no consequence. Would love to do drugs, have an affair, go to certain clubs to party, maybe even get in a fight, because if we're saved no matter what it wouldn't matter and God would still reward me?

    So, is this true that it's from God and not from satan? Before I do that I would first need to find it in clearly scripture and no other scripture would contradict it. So, if I look through the Bible for evidence, I find the following:

    1 Peter 1:13 "...hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;"

    This suggests grace won't be given until Jesus comes- maybe even after we're judged. But people are telling me I'm saved and have grace now, so which is true? Does anywhere else in the Bible say that?

    1 Peter 1:5 - "...salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."

    Ok, I guess it does. So, we're not 'saved' yet, huh?

    Hebrews 10:26 "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,"

    James 2:14-26 "...faith, if it hath not works, is dead..."

    James 2:19 "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble."

    So, believing alone isn't enough? So, maybe faith and actions matter?

    Romans 11

    John 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

    Matthew 12:31-32

    Romans 14:12

    1 Cor 9:24-27 "run the race", not the 'race was already won.'

    But many people are telling me the race is already won and that I can party. So, who is right: God's Word or man's word?

    Luke 8:5-18

    1 Timothy 4:1

    2 Peter 2:20-22

    Hebrews 3:12

    Galatians 5:4

    1 Corinthians 9:26-27 - this suggests 'trying' is good.

    Evidence showing I should NOT commit sin. God bless...
  • Adam
    Below are scriptures everyone should read and pray deeply for wisdom and understanding for. Beware of anyone trying to attack, disrespect, or demean Jesus or the name of Jesus. Jesus loves you and died for you. Scripture indicates that Jesus is God. Jesus is not God the father, but God the son. The 3 are all united as 1. There aren't 3 separate gods, there is 1 God with 3 parts as 1 John 5:7 says. We could debunk every one of the deniers' disengenuous arguments, but that would take a lot of space and most are closed off anyway. The same info is also online in countless websites. Satan loves going after any weakness he can find and people keep falling for the same tricks. Christians should simply pray about this and ask the holy spirit to either confirm or convict them on what the truth is. God bless...

    Read all of the scriptures and ignore the cultists who stray from God's Word or distort scripture. Even children can understand what these verses mean so I think some adults are just wanting to reinforce what they already want to believe, because it's convenient for other reasons. Is a Christian a real Christ follower if he doesn't believe in the divinity of Christ? That is something we should pray deeply and study deeply about.

    This sounds like an intellectually disingenuous question. Even children understand the concept of the Godhead or trinity- it's straight from God's word. If you don't understand it, that's fine, have you tried praying for wisdom and understanding. It's possible some of these comments are games a person is playing to try to pull some away from the truth to his cult-like beliefs not from the Bible. That's like doing the work of the devil.

    Sister Melinda, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Matthew 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, in this world (age) neither in the world to come (age).

    The Word of God was written by the HOLY SPIRIT ( 1 Peter 1:21), the HOLY SPIRIT is in you ( Colossians 1:27) ( Ephesians 4:6)

    To blashpheme the Holy Spirit means to NOT BELIEVE (reject) what he is saying to you through his written word and the LIVING WORD that is IN YOU.

    By not believing, or rejecting his WORD; you would not be saved in this age or in the coming age(s); but will be judged in the coming age(s).

    After the next age, possibly ages, you will AGAIN be able to be saved.

    Ephesians 1:10 That in the dispensation of the FULNESS OF TIMES (ages) he might gather together IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; EVEN IN HIM.

    1 Corinthians 15:28 And when all things (in this and the coming ages) shall be subdued (they will confess him as LORD) unto him (Christ), then shall the Son ALSO HIMSELF be subject unto him (the Father) that put all things under him (Christ), that GOD (the Father) may be ALL IN ALL.

    No one is going to be left out of the Kingdom of God; but most want come into the kingdom in the age we are now in.

    Dianne, Hi! thanks, Forgive me for responding so late I work at night and it's hard for me to keep a consistent schedule. I don't profess to be a scholar but I have been studying and reading God's Word for over 35yrs and still get amazed at how you can read a verse interpret it to some degree even be enlightened by it and a few months or even years later that same verse will speak to you again in a whole new way. I have no doubt it is what it says in 1 Peter 1:23.....being born again not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever....but please read that whole chapter it puts the scripture in better context. Thanks again! In Christ, Gerald.

    Brother Chris In regards to the beginning of the church of God in operation started day of Pentecost the full understanding of what was given was revealed to the apostle Paul by Jesus Christ in Galatians 1:11+12 thats who gave Paul the understanding of what was given on pentecost. In Ephesians 3:1-7 look at verse 9 which hath been hid in God, look at 1 Peter 1:10-12 the knowledge of The Church of God was Given to the Apostle Paul to teach, that' s my understanding when you search the church epistles. Input from anyone gladly welcome

    Isaiah says "come let us reason together..."

    This comment room is a discussion, not a competition; which is a spirit. The opposite of reasoning is dissension.

    Let us be spiritual and discerning.

    I do not know Hebrew and Greek, and I appreciate those who do. I defer to their competence.

    1 Peter 1:22

    Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

    1 Peter 3:8

    Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

    Galatians 5:13

    For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

    1 John 3:14

    We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

    1 Thessalonians 5:25

    Brethren, pray for us.

    I find it helpful to read Commentaries to see what others thought, on certain passages. In the Book of Genesis, it greatly helps to be studying out of a KJV Bible Study/Reference Bible. The ones with a CENTER OF EACH PAGE reference column.

    I pause and read the references to other like references for additional information and prophecies (fulfilled or yet to be fulfilled). It takes inner resolve to do extra studying to see the Whole Picture of a certain event. THEN I ASK the Holy Spirit to teach how it applies to the Church today. I don't buy books written by individuals. We've been given God the Holy Spirit to teach us. That's one of His Ministries to the Body of Christ: teach, reprove, convict, comfort, heal, oil of joy.

    God bless us, Mishael
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 82
    Thank you for that explanation brother Earl. I understand Luke 8:5-15 & can even understand your explanation of it. However, in the parable, Jesus uses the 'seed' as an illustration of God's Word being planted into various heart types. It's not used as God being planted/fallen by the wayside/etc. in their hearts. Even though the seed represents God's Word, if we interpret it as God being planted & therefore the Spirit being planted, then we corrupt the meaning & intent of that parable.

    If we then allow that type of interpretation to continue, so many passages, such as Isaiah 41:8, "But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend", might just compel one to think of the "seed of Abraham" to mean 'God's Word/God/a multiplication of gods, instead of simply Abraham's progeny. Even in evangelism, the evangelist shares/scatters the seed over different hearts. He does not scatter God or the Holy Spirit - I believe there must be a distinction, or else the meaning becomes clouded or lost.

    1 Peter 1:23: here again, the Word is that the believers were born again by incorruptible seed (God's Word) as opposed to the corruptible traditions that were first delivered by their fathers (v 18) that could not give a new birth. We might agree with that one but I would disagree with: "When we depart this body of flesh; Spirit ONLY remains, Spirit is GOD, we become (the image of) God." Our spirit never becomes God; our spirits are renewed by the Holy Spirit (born again) & we bear the Image of God, but whether on Earth or depart from it, our spirits don't become God. And this belief then impacts how you understand Psalm 82. As I've already given my understanding of this Psalm in this thread to Samuel, I won't repeat it, except to state that I disagree in toto with your understanding of it; i.e. it is not prophetical at all, rather a warning to the rulers & judges, to which Jesus also inferred in John 10:34.

    I appreciate your contribution Earl.

    Brother Chris:

    Before I ever knew of this website or read any comments Alex had written, the Spirit had already revealed to me that the Word (God) is SEED and Seed ALWAYS produces SEED just like the SEED it came from.

    Wheat seed produces wheat seed, corn seed produces corn seed, no matter what seed is planted it ALWAYS produces the same seed that was planted.

    Luke 8:13 Now the PARABLE is this: the SEED is the Word of God.

    I know you believe the WORD is GOD; therefore GOD is SEED, GOD is SPIRIT; therefore SEED is SPIRIT, the Holy Spirit or the Holy Ghost is the WORD, the SPIRIT and ALSO the SEED.

    1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible SEED (flesh), but of incorruptible SEED (SPIRIT), by the Word of God (Spirit of God, Seed of God), which (the Seed, the Spirit, the Word) liveth and abideth forever.



    When we depart this body of flesh; Spirit ONLY remains, Spirit is GOD, we become (the image of) God.

    As for Psalms 82 It is the Word. It is prophecy.

    Psalms 83:1 God (the Word) standeth in the congregation (those that receive the Word) of the mighty; he (the Word) judgeth among the gods (gods that are flesh and gods that are born again SPIRIT; first; you bear the flesh, then the Spirit).

    Psalms 82:2 How long (God, the Word) will you judge unjustly (we see no justice right now), and accept the persons of the wicked?

    Psalms 82:3 (God, the Word) defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflected and needy.

    Psalms 82:4 (God, the Word) deliver the poor and needy: (God, the Word) rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

    Psalms 82:5 They (gods of this world) know not, neither do they understand; they walk in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

    Psalms 82:6 I (God, the word) have said (and my WORDS will not return unto me void) YE ARE GODS; the children of the most high.

    But ye shall die like men (flesh, and ONLY the SPIRIT will remain), and fall like one of the princes (of this world).

    Earl Bowman In respect to what you wrote the spirit reveals through it is written 2 Peter 1: 20-21 Jesus Christ came the first time flesh to lost sheep House of Israel they rejected Him. The day of pentecost it became available for anyone via Romans 10:9+10 to be born again of Gods spirit i.e.Christ in you the Hope of glory Colossians 1:25-29 in the age of Grace this age we live in. In 1 Peter 1:10-12 this is so big the prophets were looking for it and the angels desired to look into. This is His body that will be gathered together 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 also 1 Corinthians 15:51-54. It's your privilege to believe what you choose ill stick with it is written. God Bless

    That was a very good observation, TJ. I never picked up on it before. Looking at the Hebrew for both 'blemish' & 'spot', it shows up as exactly the same word, whereas, as you observed, in 1 Peter 1:19, two different Greek words are used.

    Others may have a better answer, but I would think that in 1 Peter 1:19, they are separate words found & used in Greek, whereas the Hebrew has the one word that covers 'blemish, spot, defect'. It would be difficult to find much difference between those words & therefore it wouldn't raise an issue in my understanding.

    "Numbers chapter 29 discusses the offerings for the Feast of Trumpets and the Feast of Tabernacles. Verses 2 and 8 specify seven lambs "without blemish" for the Feast of Trumpets.

    Verse 12 the Feast of Tabernacles would be seven days, and then verse 13 specifies that on the first day there were to be fourteen lambs "without blemish".

    Then, on the second day in verse 17, there were to be fourteen lambs "without spot".

    The third day (verse 20) and the fourth day (verse 23) were also to have fourteen lambs "without blemish", then on the fifth day (verse 26) there were to be fourteen lambs again "without spot".

    The remaining sixth (verse 29), seventh (verse 32) days also specify fourteen lambs "without blemish", then on the eighth day (verse 35-36) there were to be seven lambs "without blemish".

    One would suppose that "spot" and "blemish" are interchangeable, yet verses such as 1 Peter 1:19 - "But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish AND without spot:" [capitals mine] they are certainly two separate and distinctly different words.

    Why are the lambs on days 2 and 5 to be without spot, and the rest of the days the lambs are to be without blemish?"

    Then, on the second day in verse 17, there were to be fourteen lambs "without spot".

    The third day (verse 20) and the fourth day (verse 23) were also to have fourteen lambs "without blemish", then on the fifth day (verse 26) there were to be fourteen lambs again "without spot".

    The remaining sixth (verse 29), seventh (verse 32) days also specify fourteen lambs "without blemish", then on the eighth day (verse 35-36) there were to be seven lambs "without blemish".

    One would suppose that "spot" and "blemish" are interchangeable, yet verses such as 1 Peter 1:19 - "But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish AND without spot:" [capitals mine] they are certainly two separate and distinctly different words.

    Why are the lambs on days 2 and 5 to be without spot, and the rest of the days the lambs are to be without blemish?

    Hi Richard.

    Part 1.

    I personal believe they are, I believe they're saved by the same means as everyone else. Faith in the sacrificial lamb our Lord Jesus Christ. I believe the skins provided by the Lord himself speaks of that. The Lord speaks to us by Allegories, similitudes, ect.. And we know they brought sacrifices to the lord and all these sacrifices pointed to the Lord .

    Genesis 4:4. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: " This was asked of them" As I will attempt to bring forward with more scripture.

    Hebrews 11:4. ( BY FAITH ) Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. "We know faith comes by hearing". Romans 10-17. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Christ was foreordained to come into the world to make remission for sins before the world begun.

    And before Adam and Eve sinned.

    Ephesians 1:4.

    1 Peter 1:20.

    Titus 1:1-3.

    While we are on this topic conjectural view I have.

    Look what happens immediately after they have bitten of the tree of knowledge.

    Genesis 3:7. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

    "It seems them knowing they were naked was the main reason to keep them from eating on the tree of knowledge."

    The tree of knowledge was the focal point before they ate, Them knowing they were naked is the focal point afterwards.

    And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

    And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was "naked;" and I hid myself.

    And he said, Who told thee that thou wast "naked?" Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

    Part 2.

    Consequences of knowing.

    GOD BLESS.

    But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."

    Are we supposed to evangelise, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    One of the HARDEST TRUTHS to understand is that when you are BORN AGAIN by the word of God you ALSO DIED (the first death, which is not literal death) by the word of God.

    The verse being quoted below is not LITERAL; it has to be spiritually discerned:

    Revelation 13:10 He that (evangelises and) leadeth (others) into captivity will go into captivity: he that (evangelises and) killeth with the sword (the word of God) must be killed with the sword (the word of God). Here is the patience and faith of the saints.

    1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, By THE WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth forever.

    If you have died (by the sword or word of God) in Christ you now live in Christ (the word); then:

    Philippians 2:13 It is God that worketh in you BOTH TO WILL and TO DO of his good pleasure.

    REST IN THE LORD; whatever he wants you to do, YOU WILL DO through HIS POWER and FOREKNOWLEDGE.

    Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and CAUSE YOU TO WALK IN MY STATUTES, and ye shall keep my judgements and DO THEM.

    Colossians 1:27 ...This mystery....CHRIST IN YOU ....

    More thought on the Spirit going to be with the Lord,

    This truth is rejected because it don't go over well with those who don't believe in eternal security. They believe you want know you're saved until after the judgment. Here's one of their supposed defining verse.

    1 Peter 1:5. Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ( READY TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST TIME.)

    This scripture is the lord showing his faithfulness in coming to redeem his possession that he purchased with his own blood purchase.

    Salvation is not being revealed, The Possession is.

    Let's look at that scripture taking it from verse 3.

    1 Peter 1:3-5. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a "LIVELY HOPE" by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

    To an inheritance INCORRUPTIBLE, and UNDEFILED, and that FADETH NOT AWAY, ( RESERVED ) IN HEAVEN FOR YOU,

    Who are "KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD" through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

    INCORRUPTIBLE, UNDEFILED, FADETH NOT AWAY, RESERVED, KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD. Ready to be revealed.

    Sure sounds like we can count on it!!

    God bless.

    It's hard to deny what the Bible so clearly says. Here are more verses saying the same thing about salvation. Jesus warned his followers many times through parables that most will go to hell. Judas was a follower until he turned his back on Jesus and sold Him out. He faced a horrible death and likely will go to hell. Christians unfortunately turn their backs on Jesus today- sometimes even prominent ones, including pastors, worship leaders, ministers. The common response I hear is either denial or 'they were never Christian'- then I ask them their definition of a Christian and then usually don't get a response. The Bible says all those things about security of salvation, but you can't stop reading there, this assumes you're following Jesus and many do for a period of time, but then start following the world or satan directly, without even realizing how far they have drifted. The Bible says to fear God. He will judge you and where you will go. Most won't take it seriously, will goof off, live for pleasure and will go to hell. People need to be warned of this so they will actually follow Jesus, and avoid the disaster that awaits. Jesus's parables were quite clear and He pounded that message into people. People who don't follow Jesus's commandments don't love Jesus. They might say they do, believe they do, but they don't if continue in sin.

    Hebrews 10:26 "For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,"

    James 2:14-26 "...faith, if it hath not works, is dead..."

    James 2:19 "Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble."

    1 Peter 1:13 "...hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;"

    Romans 11

    John 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

    Matthew 12:31-32

    Romans 14:12

    1 Peter 1:5 - "...salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."

    1 Cor 9:24-27 "run the race", not the 'race was already won.'
