    when they asked what we should pray, he taught them the Lords pray Matthew 6:9-13, we prayer this daily, it teaches us how to worship our Holy Father, how to seek for daily bread, wisdom, how to forgive us our sins daily how to forgive ours who sin against you turn the other cheek, deliver us from the evil one for he is the power that we seek from him, and he is the glory let his kingdom come Amen

    Scripture says God is male, "Father Son Holy Spirit. The 3 are one. When God revealed himself to me I saw the face of Jesus every time I closed my eyes for 2 years. I can assure you God is male. Jesus said, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father also." Jesus also referred to the Holy Spirit as 'He'. God has created female beings so he understand both male and female, but he is not a woman.

    I think the book of Ephesians claims the supreme power of Jesus Christ to supersede any other power in earth and in Heaven

    Ephesians 1:3 answers the universal questions posed by Ecclesiastes 1:14

    Where in the Bible does say that We must be born again and again and again. Does it not say Once saved always saved, and what about the verse where Jesus says, no Man can pluck You out of My hand. In Roman's it says Who so ever SHALL call upon the Name of Jesus SHALL be saved, not again and again and again, etc.
  • Doug
    The Bible doesn't say "once saved always saved" but it is an eternal salvation which is given freely and we are sealed and secure in Christ, Eph.1:13, 2Cor. 1:21 if we have truly trusted him for it. Good verse you referenced. Thanks and God Bless.
  • Vanessa
    Acts3:19 may help you understand why we repent daily, just a thought could keep you from enter the kingdom , it's not being born again over and over again it's repenting God Bless you always peace be with you also Matthew 3:8
  • Doug
    Acts 3:19 and Matthew 3:8 is talking about true repentance which is turning from sin to God. I don't follow after sin now but being in the flesh I am surely not sinless. My salvation is secure in Christ but my peace and joy come from keeping sin confessed and seeking the Lord for grace to overcome. Sin is no longer imputed to me as a child of God. Romans 4:2-8. God chastens us in mercy when we sin
  • Doug
    The book of Acts is a transition from the old to the new. Did you not understand vs. 13 telling us we are sealed by the Spirit? 2Cor. 1: 21-22 telling us again of the sealing. How do you know you are saved for eternity if an evil thought could keep you out of heaven. When I trusted Christ to save me it was a permanent thing. A new creature in Christ. Salvation is of the Lord. God Bless you.
  • Robert E. Hutchinson
    I know We have to repent and ask for God's forgiveness every day, because we are not perfect, We are just simply sinners saved by Grace. When We sin, We don't lose Our Salvation, We lose Our relationship with the Lord, when We pray and ask for forgiveness God says He will forgive and forget Our sins in the sea of His forgetfulness. No one can live a perfect life, because we are human.
  • Vanessa
    as long as we live under God's ways and not our own, people can backslide, or truly not except Christ,for he who fills us with the spirit, knows this life is temporary, no evil can prevail when we are in Christ. Amen! many blessing to you always peace be with you.
  • Vanessa
    God Bless you to, and I understand what you are saying but if you read 1 John 1-10, not one is perfect, we deceive ourselves if we think we haven't sinned , Jesus said to repent, even in revelations it tells you repent for you know not when your time will end, I would repent daily
  • Grace ambassador (bro Chris)
    re: "Simply" God's ETERNAL Salvation vs. "temporary or probational" salvation? Please "study" prayerfully carefully 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 And Also 1 Corinthians 3:8-15 And "ask" these questions: 1 Did the UNrepentant saint "lose" salvation 2 Do the "co-laborers" saints With God, who built "wood, hay, And stubble" lose salvation, or is Verse 15 "false"? Grace And Peace Unto ALL!
  • Bruce
    Simply put, The Holy Spirit will Teach and Guide us as We Read, Study and Show The Way of Salvation to a lost and Dying World.
  • Steve Jang
    My comments will go beyond this chapters and across all
    teachings of Paul: I want to reflect that the newness in Jesus Christ and therefore a new walk in spiritual life in Christ is not of any 101 or 102 to other advanced level of school of thoughts, approaches, methods or superior principles in being Christian; these are one of the mechanicals of why and how; let spirit talk in Jesus Christ...

    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
  • Mark
    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.
  • Angela
    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.
  • Anthony Terry
    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
    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
    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.
  • Dr jeffery Bennett
    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.
  • Alex
    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.
