Now, this lesson as I said in the last one will reveal scriptures that are never used in churches that teach eternal security. They choose to ignore them because they are so straight forward that it goes against their doctrine, therefore they cannot explain them. I hope that some are reading this. If not, it does not matter. This website will be available after the Rapture so maybe it will help those left behind. Now, it is time for the “lost scriptures”.
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries (Hebrews 10:26, 27). How much more clearly can the scriptures be? If a person sins after they are saved there is no more sacrifice, in other words the Blood is removed. The knowledge of the truth is salvation. The word remaineth here means the Blood is not there. He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace (Hebrews 10:28, 29)? Those that sin and claim salvation are not, they are walking right through the Blood of Jesus as if it were worthless.
For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:30-31). This verse is pertaining to those in sin. The saved; sin-free, have no need to be in fear of an angry God. They are under His protection, not wrath. God is never angry as long as you are right, God right.
Peter backslid on God, Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee. Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew (Matthew 26:69, 70, 73, 74). When he cursed they quit bothering him. Why? It was because then they knew he could not be one of the disciples of Jesus. His speech had changed. If your speech is that of the world salvation cannot be yours.
King David backslid, Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly. For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed (Psalm 31:9, 10).
David was in agony to the point he was afraid God would not take him back. For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee (Psalm 31:22). He was taken back by God, in His mercy He heard David’s cry.
Samson backslid on God when he lusted after a woman he was forbidden to have. The woman betrayed him and he lost his power; his anointing. The same is happening today. There are people out there with their own “Delilah’s”, being betrayed by their own lusts and losing their power with God and influence with others.
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death (James 1:14, 15). When it is conceived, put into practice it becomes sin. The devil can get to the mind of someone saved, but not the soul. He will give a thought, but thoughts are not sin. You have to shoot a bad thought down with a good one. Just because you think something does not mean you have to act it out.
I believe in once saved always saved: You get in grace and abide in it daily the way the Bible proclaims. You have to go from grace to grace daily. You will have to fight the devil every step of the way.
The doctrines of the devil have to be exposed. It is then up to the individual what they do with the warning. Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul (Ezekiel 3:17-19). Those that preach those that sin will enter Heaven have the blood of every soul on their hands that goes to hell due to those teachings. This verse is very clear on God’s mind on the subject. He said the wicked shall surely die.
Well, that is it for this lesson. I will continue soon.
