Can I As A Born Again Believer Ever Lose My Salvation?
■ The Bible clearly teaches that a child of God cannot ever lose his salvation.
■ There are three reasons why…
• The Promise of God
• The Power of God
• The Presence of God.
Two Important Truths Every Christian Needs To Understand
■ What kind of life does God give to the believer and when does he receive that life?
■ Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. John 6:47
■ God gives the believer everlasting life and he receives it the moment he believes.
The first reason why a believer cannot lose his salvation God’s Promise
■ John 6:37
“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out”
■ John 6:39
“And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day”
■ John 10:28
“And I give unto them eternal life and they shall never
perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
The second reason why a believer cannot lose his salvation God’s Power
■ I Peter 1:4,5
“To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God...”
■ II Timothy 1:12
“…for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
■ It is God who saves us and keeps us.
The third reason why a believer cannot lose his salvation God’s Presence
■ John 14:16,17
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever”
■ Ephesians 1:13; 4:30
“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,... And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption”
■ Ephesians 1:14
“Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
■ Hebrews 13:5
“…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
