Many Christian believers are deceived. They have false security of salvation. Therefor they are self-assured, entitled and arrogant. They believe that they have a guarantee of salvation and that they cannot lose their salvation.
Most false teachings and doctrines are backed by Bible verses. People trust in Bible verses but they do not obey the words of Jesus, and therefor they will perish if they do not wake up and obey the TRUTH.
If you have come to know Jesus and you believe His teachings, you will know that there is no guarantee of salvation.
The reason why so many believers are deceived and doomed is because they believe lies. They do not believe and obey the TRUTH. The only words that lead to salvation are the teachings and commands of Jesus Christ, the TRUTH, as recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Jesus Christ is the Way the Life and the TRUTH. Obey Jesus. Obey the truth. Repent and stop sinning. Be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Obey His words, seek Him with all your heart, and He will reveal Himself to you. You will know the TRUTH and the truth will set you free.
May Jesus bless you.
First John 5, especially verse 13, let’s me KNOW that I have salvation in Christ Jesus, brother Jan. As soon as I read that we cannot be sure of salvation, the Holy Spirit let me know that was an untrue statement. I hope and pray that you, too, have assurance of salvation through Jesus Christ. Amen.
Dear friend, is your assurance of salvation from your relationship with Jesus or from the Bible verse? Jesus is faithful, He will never leave us but if we deny Him, He will deny us. If we do not bear fruit, we will get cut off and burned. We are only SAFE as long as we stay IN Christ, following Him and doing His will.
Thank you for responding to this post. My relationship with God through Jesus assures me of my position in Him. However to say that we cannot know is erroneous and very dangerous to post.
