    About one losing their salvation which can only be initiated by HIS WORD HIS VOICE ETC.HIS WORD CANNOT RETURN UNTO HIM VOID, IT HAS TO PROSPER IN WHAT IT WAS SENT TO DO ISAIAH 55. Thus one cannot lose their salvation if it has been initiated by his Word ITS ONLY THEM THAT HAVE NOT THAT LOSE WHAT THEY THINK THEY HAVE, BUT UNTO THEM THAT HATH SHALL MORE BE GIVEN. MY WORD CANNOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID

    Bill; Haven't I tried to be friendly? Haven't I written good things by the Spirit and according to the Love of our Saviour? Why do you insist on being an adversary, and seek to catch others in something that you might accuse? I shake off my feet against you: notwithstanding, be sure of this; that the kingdom of God has come near to you. I just keep going on with the Lord!

    A disciple, All I say is what the Lord and His servants have written to us, about the tree being known by its fruit, and doing what Jesus has commanded us to do if we love Him. What an echo from Eden!Adding your work to Christ's death, for saving of your soul, is not being saved by grace and mercy. "not by works of righteousness which we have done""justified by his grace"Titus 3.You omit truth.
  • A disciple
    Bill; It seems to me that you are trying to be confrontational, and wrenching on a presumed meaning in my words. All I say is what the Lord and His servants have written to us, about the tree being known by its fruit, and doing what Jesus has commanded us to do if we love Him. 2 Peter 1 explains very well how we are to DO these things; both for being able to walk and not stumble and to be saved!

    A disciple, Not we.Christians appear before the judgement seat of Christ, not the great white throne,as do unbelievers."being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh,hath he quickened together with him,having forgiven you all trespasses.Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us,which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way,nailing it to his cross".Saved!
  • A disciple
    Hi Bill; Additionally, when the Lord shall sit on the throne of His Glory, and all Nations shall be gathered before Him; He will separate us one from another, completely based on our works, and whether we were good and kind toward even the little ones who belong to Jesus! Ignorance can never be an excuse, although it will be claimed by many; for the Lord knows the truth why we do good or don't!
