Mark, Eph 1:1 is addressed to the FAITHFUL in Christ Jesus. God's love is unconditional, however all his promises are conditional, if you do this, I will do this, this and this. Note the qualifier in Heb 11:21-22 "For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee ... but toward thee goodness, IF THOU CONTINUE in his goodness; otherwise thou also shall be cut off

Jewell, Being Saved always means always saved. People fall away...true...but the consequence for doing so is loss of rewards...NEVER loss of Salvation. Our faith is built on The Rock of Jesus Christ and is a solid foundation. Any other faith is built on sand. Jesus uses words like EVERLASTING, FOREVER, ETERNAL, EVER AND EVER, Shall be SAVED, etc. None of these words are provisional. No guess work.

Being a person who feels abandoned and discouraged, it's good to learn about the relationship
with God and much he loves me. The book of Ephesians is surely good news.

Paul tells the assembly of Corinth to dismiss the believer that was living in wickedness that in hope his soul may be saved. This was a believer so you answer will be found by Gods written word. We are indeed sealed unto the day of redemption. The two are not the same

 


Jewell's comment on 7/11/2018, 6:13pm...

Being saved does not mean you are always saved. You must continue in the walk that God has for you. If you start a life a sin and turn away from God, you must rededicate your life over to him. Otherwise, you could be saved and do all kinds of evil and still be saved? No, you must continue the good fight in Jesus name.

Nikita,'You are being born of the Word, not of corruptible but of the incorruptible seed which lives and abides forever'. 1Pet 1:23. Your spiritual growth to perfection, to the stature of the perfect man,Jesus Christ, depends on which you are going to be feeding the most, your flesh or your spirit. 'As new born babes, desire the sincere milk of the Word that you may grow thereby,'1Pet 2:3.

 


George's comment on 6/06/2018, 7:58am...

Nikita, you have to take the verses you read in the New Testament and look at who the authors were talking to. If you look at Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts amd Hebrews - 3rd John, The authors are speaking to Jews. Romans-Philemon, the authors are speaking to Gentiles. When it comes to the question of salvation, we are all Gentiles now. If you are saved once, you are saved for eternity.

EPHESIANS 1:17 that THE GOD of our LORD JESUS CHRIST THE FATHER of glory may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of HIM 1 CORINTHIANS 1:24 BUT UNTO THEM WHICH ARE CALLED BOTH JEWS AND GREEKS --- CHRIST THE POWER OF GOD AND THE WISDOM OF GOD--1:30--BUT OF HIM ARE YOU IN CHRIST JESUS WHO OF GOD IS MADE UNTO US --- WISDOM RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SANCTIFICATION AND REDEMPTION

Simply put: once someone is truly born again it is forever. John 10:25-30 says there r those that properly believe and those that don't and The Lord Jesus knows the difference. He gives to those that believe eternal life, and they will never perish, and cannot be plucked out of His or the Fathers hand (v 28-29). God will carry a believer through the ups and downs in life: HE will carry us through.

Real Salvation can only be initiated by Gods WORD which is his VOICE and his WORD CANNOT RETURN UNTO HIM VOID IT HAS TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT IT WAS SENT TO DO WHICH IS ETERNAL LIFE, Thus if your salvation has been initiated by his VOICE, HIS WORD TH LIVING WORD YOU CANNOT FALLAWAY,SIMPLY B/C GODS WORD CANNOT RETURN UNTO HIM VOID ISA.55 V 11. Jesus said to them that HATH shall more be given NOT LOSE IT.

 


TRISH's comment on 6/04/2018, 1:36am...

NIKITA:YES YOU CAN LOSE YOUR SALVATION. IT IS TRUE THAT ONCE SAVED WERE SEALED WITH THE HOLY SPIRT.AND MAKES US A NEW CREATURE, THAT DOSEN'T MEAN A PERSON CANT GO BACK TO WALKING IN SINIFUL WAYS FALLING FROM GODS GRACE.WE ARE TO BELEIVE THE WHOLE BIBLE OR NONE OF IT.WE ARE TO BE CHRIST LIKE.ALL YOUR QUESTIONS CAN SIMPILY BE ANSWERED BY PRAYING TO OUR FATHER FOR YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDIN. GOD BLESS

 


Bruce's comment on 6/03/2018, 4:38pm...

Nikita: Therefore If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature old things are passed away behold all things are become new. 2Corinthians5:17. / If we confess our sins He is Faithful and Just to Forgive us our sins and to Cleanse us from all Unrighteousness. 1John1:9. Read 1John1:1 to 1John2:6. Read The Bible Daily. We are The only Light the World will see.

 


Nikita's comment on 6/02/2018, 2:02pm...

Can anyone help me with this crucial question:
- can Salvation be lost or not?
-Once someone is saved, is he sealed for ever?
- what happens when a believer stops believing altogether, looses faith in Jesus as their savior? can they still have eternal life?
- what about those who believe in Jesus as the son of God but not the savior? will they receive salvation as per Jhn 3:16?
Thanks.

Jesus preached salvation to his disciples, who were building a faith imperfect because we’re still human. Only God knows certain matters of faith. Some struggle and we could wonder ,” were they really born again?” Their faith is at least headed in right direction. Only the Spirit can perform these miracles. Exposure to authentic Christians who espouse His Word is a must, as this is Christ’s body.

 


Ivan's comment on 4/10/2018, 7:00am...

B.Good. If verse 13 were to be interpreted that you cannot loose salvation after you have been sealed, all the warnings that Paul gives in first and second Timothy to believers would be false. We have to look at all verses dealing with subject to reach proper interpretations. Isaiah-28:13. There are many warnings to believers, about enduring to the end. We have a will that God will not take away.

 


W S's comment on 4/04/2018, 6:59pm...

B Good Read ST John 15:1 - 10
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my namesake: but he that endure the to the end shall be saved.

 


A disciple's comment on 3/30/2018, 10:34am...

"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory." On God's part concerning us, all things are prepared and ready; now we must overcome as Jesus did.

 


A disciple's comment on 3/28/2018, 10:46am...

B.Good; If we abide in Jesus and His Word abides in us; if we hold fast the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; if we be doers of the Word, and not only hearers; WHEN we walk in truth, can we endure faithful to the end. 2 Peter 1 explains this with great power. As we have been granted an escape from the corruption in the world through lust WE MUST alongside this give all diligence!

 


B.Good's comment on 3/27/2018, 2:34pm...

Doesnt verse 13 prove that there is no way to lose salvation if you believed in Jesus atonement for our sin? No matter how great the sin, even if you believed then not believed later that the Holy Spirit is sealed up within you until the end? Or am I understanding this wrong?

2CORINTHIANS 12:9 and HE said unto me -- MY GRACE -- is sufficient for thee for my strength is made perfect in weakness most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities that the power of CHRIST may rest upon me ECLESIASTES 8:4 where the word of a king is there is power and who may say unto him what doest thou 1 CORINTHIANS 1:24 but unto them which are called both Jews and Greeks CHRIST the power of GOD and the wisdom of GOD MATTHEW 7:26 and everyone that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man which built his house upon the sand -- 7:26 -- and the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house and it fell and great was the fall of it ACTS 20:32 and now brethren I commend you to GOD and to the word of HIS grace which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified

Paul is speaking of those who are Christians. Not a denomination such as Baptist or Methodist.

Michele's comment on 2/07/2018, 1:12pm...

Paul the apostle was an example of no matter how much sin, our GOD is a forgiving GOD. By the grace of our GOD, we are saved, forgiven, and will live eternally with our FATHER, HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, and THE PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT.

 


BSP's comment on 12/28/2017, 1:48pm...

Verse 16: Paul set a good example by mentioning the names of other in his prayers.
