The concept of being SAVED, as preached and believed in the world today is FALSE. Nobody is finally saved before they have endured with Jesus until the end. Those who have received Jesus and have been born again are in the process of BEING SAVED, only as long as they keep following and obeying Jesus. Someone said to Jesus: “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.” Luke 13:23,24.
Jesus saves, nothing or nobody else. Jesus will personally decide who will have eternal life and who not. Just the act of believing in Jesus by itself will not save anybody. Believing that Jesus is the only one who can give eternal life causes the believer to take action and do what Jesus commanded.
Jesus Himself preached the gospel of the kingdom of God, the only gospel by which anyone can become part of the kingdom of God and have eternal life. The words of Jesus, the words that He spoke, taught and commanded as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, are the words of eternal life. Those who disobey Jesus will NOT have eternal life.
Jesus said: ”Follow Me.” He said: “Those who endure until the end, will be saved.” Jesus warned that He will say to many who believed that they were saved: ”Go away, I never knew you, you workers of lawlessness.”
Jesus is the only way, there is no other. Many think they can have salvation by searching the Scriptures, reading the Bible, and practicing their own teachings from the Bible, but they refuse to obey Jesus. They will perish. Take heed of the words of Jesus, obey Him, there is no other way. Jesus said: “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; 40and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.” Matthew 5:39,40.
Stop believing lies. Stop following after false doctrines. Stop believing that you are already finally saved. Follow Jesus, obey His words, and He will guide you until the end. Jesus is the way. You have to follow Him to have eternal life.
Embrace Jesus, His words. Read them and obey them. Repent, turn from sin, stop sinning. Be baptized in water as Jesus commanded. Pray, call on Jesus in your own words. He will disclose Himself to you. Ask Him to baptize you in the Holy Spirit. He will give of His Spirit in you, He will come and dwell in you, speak to you, in your spirit. He will teach and guide you. Humble yourself before Jesus. He is God. He is not your buddy. He is the only one who can give eternal life.
Jesus will give you feedback. He will tell you whether you are pleasing to Him or not. Do not rely on other people and do not look for Bible verses to give you false security and assurances. There are many soothsayers, preachers that lie to believers, make them feel comfortable in their sin. They are of satan. The Holy Spirit will convict you if you sin or do wrong. Immediately repent, plead Jesus forgiveness and do not repeat the same sin. Be holy. If you are in sin, you are in danger of hell fire. Without holiness no one will see the Lord. Stay focused on Jesus and on doing what He commanded. Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us, but if we stray from Him we will perish. Stay with Jesus and do not tolerate sin in your life. Seek Jesus. Seek His peace and confirmation Strive to enter the through the narrow door. Many will seek to enter and not be able.
Never give up. Follow Jesus, until the end. Remember, only those who endure with Jesus until the end, will be saved.
May Jesus bless you.
