Once you are saved you are always saved, is in fact a true statement, which will be realized at the second advent of Jesus Christ.
The only way one can lose his or her Salvation is to not receive it. When Christ returns with our Salvation it will be evident who receives the Crown of life in less than a minute.
1 Cor 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Yes the whole process of the realization of Salvation will transpire in the blink of an eye, and once you are saved you are always saved.
Acts 16:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
Those who can rightly divide the Word of Truth, will share the Assurance of Salvation they possess with others.
Many people have been led astray by a cheap salvation message. Only those who do not have the Assurance of Salvation will ask,” Can I lose my Salvation”?
It is quite impossible to lose your Salvation, Because of the fact that once you are saved you are always saved.
Through the Holy Spirit it is possible to have a full Assurance of Salvation.
Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we (first) believed.
Once you are saved you are always saved. This is a future tense occurrence. The reason is that only upon Christ’s return to earth can this redemptive process take place.
The Hope of our Assurance of Salvation is both a tactical and a defensive weapon. A sure hope allows us to endure, but by the renewing of our minds we can also conquer.
1 Thess 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
The vast majority today within Christianity, simply have no hope. How can you hope for something that you claim to already possess? When you truly understand that once you are saved you are always saved, you can then have the hope of one day obtaining eternal Salvation.
1 Pet 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
It is unlikely that one can explain to others a hope that they do not themselves have.
Many believe that the teaching once you are saved you are always saved, represents an occurrence in the present tense.
To make a claim to being saved by works, whether it is through words or deeds is self-righteousness, and it is a false doctrine.
At the great white throne judgment the dead are judged according to their works. If one is saved then how can they be judged?
Jesus spoke to his disciples about salvation that would occur in conjunction with entering into the kingdom of God (Math 19:24, 25, 29).
Acts 13:26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent
Christ Jesus who is the Word is also our salvation.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation…
The true understanding of the phrase “once you are saved you are always saved,” Is indeed spiritually discerned
That which is born of the flesh is of the flesh, and that which is born of the spirit is of the spirit.
Until you are born again you can not have a true knowledge of Salvation. Becoming born again and receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit are one in the same.
Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he can not enter into the Kingdom of God (John 3:3-8).
Too many believe that they are born again, and yet have never experiencing the true indwelling of the Holy Spirit. It is only when Christ’s Spirit lives within us, that we can truly hear and believe unto everlasting life (John 5:24, 14:17; 15:26; 16:13; Eph 1:13).
Eph 1:13 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.
Christ purchased us through His shed blood and gives us the Holy Spirit as a down payment. The one who is sealed by Christ realizes that once you are saved you are always saved, represents the fulfillment of His contract with us.
Our inheritance, redemption and salvation are received at His second coming.
Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Christ said that unless you believe and are baptized, you shall not be saved. He did not say that we are saved, but that we shall be saved. The teaching that once you are saved you are always saved, takes on a completely different meaning, if we listen to our Lord.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized (with the Holy Spirit) shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Emphasis added
The baptism of John was unto repentance; however the baptism of the Holy Spirit is unto salvation.
Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
The end result of true faith in Christ is the salvation of our soul (1 Peter 1:9).
We will be saved by the renewing of the Spirit; our old nature is made new, when we put on the mind of Christ. We are not to conform to the world, but we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (1 Cor 2:16, 1 Peter 1:13, Rom 12:2).
Eze 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:
When you see the end time events start to unfold; then look up for your redemption and salvation is at hand (Luke 21:28).
