The Confusion Surrounding Eternal Salvation

GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION
GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION

“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
–1CORINTHIANS 14:33

God’s Word is EXTREMELY CLEAR about the components of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ.

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
—John 20:31

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Though Jesus is the natural FOCUS of eternal salvation, it all begins with God’s great mercy toward his creation–the biggest aspect of this GREAT mercy was the sending of His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth in order that man, believing, might obtain grace and be saved eternally.

“For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”
–Romans 9:15-16

God saves whom He pleases.

“Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.”
–Romans 9:18

And it pleases God when man has the FAITH to obey His Word–which is TRUE.

It also pleases God when man diligently seeks Him.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
–Hebrews 11:6

God’s Word is CRYSTAL CLEAR concerning eternal salvation.

MANY in the churches believe that one must be a ‘good person’ in order to get into heaven.

BUT, God’s Word informs that there are NO ‘good persons.’

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
–Romans 3:10-12

God’s great mercy saves man: nothing else.

There should be NO confusion: ALL who TRULY value such an eternal destination will receive it.

There are no “tricks” to obtaining eternal salvation.

BUT, one must desire and value such salvation.

And, in the modern world, that is quite a feat in itself.

DOES the reader ever think about eternal salvation?

DOES the reader believe that he has to be a ‘good person’ to be eternally saved?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

ALL Who Greatly Value Eternal Life Shall Have It

eternal life

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
–John 5:24

Eternal life is a GREAT gift from a merciful God.

“but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
–Romans 6:23

The reader can KNOW this is true because it is so written in God’s Word and God’s Word is true.

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
–Numbers 23:19

BUT, a gift is only a gift to those who desire what is given as a gift.

gift

something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation

Otherwise, what is given is merely a trifle; an expression of a thought by the giver; something ultimately undesired by the one who receives such an expression.

How does the reader KNOW that eternal life is bestowed upon ALL who greatly desire it?

It is written in God’s Word.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
–Matthew 7:7

“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”
–Jeremiah 29:12-13

“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.”
–Proverbs 8:17

One of the GREAT benefits of those who sincerely seek God are the great gifts He bestows on all who find Him.

The worldly man is focused on THIS life and all that it offers (mostly to the senses).  Therefore, the worldly man seeks after worldly things.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–2JOHN 2:15-16

To the world man, a ‘gift from God’ is a passing thought: a mental construct which has NO bearing on this life and all that the worldly man knows, values and desires.

There are MANY who CLAIM to desire God’s great mercy, one facet which is eternal life–particularly those in the churches–but, at the end of the day, this is merely talk, for almost all who inhabit the churches are interested in THIS life and what it has to offer.

One may KNOW this by listening to the church folk talk amongst themselves.  That talk focuses mostly on this world, the things of this world and how to achieve the things of this world.

IF one GREATLY values the mercy and gift of God, one will truly seek God.

And IF one sincerely seeks God, one will find God.

And IF one finds God, one will find the things God has for those who sincerely seek Him.

IS the reader one who seeks God?

OR, is the reader one who is primarily interested in the things of this all-too-brief life?

[It should be noted that God KNOWS a man’s heart and thoughts.  A man may insist that he has always GREATLY valued eternal life, but God KNOWS whether that is true or just talk.  In fact, it is suspected that there will be MANY who ‘talk a good game‘ when it becomes crystal clear to them that they are to be judged–in spite of what they have been told or believe. IF a man has valued the things of God, God will KNOW.  IF a man has valued the things of the world, God will KNOW that as well.]

Again, is the reader primarily interested in the things of God or the things of the world?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

One Popular Method of NOT Preparing for the End Times

While listening to a discussion this past week, a thought was voiced in a LOUD manner by one of the ones engaged in the discussion.

Upon reflection, it was decided that this thought was NOT novel.

IN FACT, this thought seems to be a fairly common one.

The discussion was about what to do if one finds oneself in the midst of a HUGE power outage: something along the lines of the entire electrical power grid shutting down for a significant length of time for ANY reason.

“That’s not something I’m going to talk about!  That’s all that people want to talk about.  Well,  I won’t waste one minute thinking about it!”

This person had made the decision to address a possible future problem by NOT addressing it.

And, the listener had to admit, this was NOT the first time he had heard the line of reasoning: “I’m not going to think about it until it happens–IF it happens.”

NOW, this may be a perfectly sound judgment for those who have placed their faith in God and His Son, Jesus Christ, and so have committed their futures to the Creator.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
–1PETER 1:3-5

“And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”
–Psalm 9:10

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
–Colossians 3:1-2

BUT what about those who have placed their trust and hope for the future in MAN and the schemes of man (mostly, government)?

A few years ago, one lady expressed complete confidence about the future–as long as her radio worked(!)

“I’ll just turn the radio on and the government will know what’s going on.  They’ll tell me what I have to do.”

Even the PREPPERS do a more thorough job of preparing for an uncertain future–and preppers almost ALL prepare PHYSICALLY for what’s coming.

BASICALLY, it seems that there exists a sizable group of people who are

1- Confident about what the future holds because they do NOT think of any unpleasantries which may occur; and,

2- Confident about what the future might hold because they are certain that others–who job it is to concern themselves with such affairs–are ‘on it’ and have better preparations already figured out.

This group of people essentially prepare for the future by NOT preparing in ANY way–either physically OR spiritually OR otherwise.

They just don’t think about it.

Which works FINE–as long as NO unforeseen difficulties arise.

WHAT does the reader think of such thoughts?

DOES the reader believe that problems will be solved or ‘go away’ because one doesn’t think of them?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

UFOs, Outer Space, Alien ETs and Other Modern Myths and Legends

stories

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you”
–Mark 13:3-5

The modern deceptions of outer space, UFOs and ET aliens are VERY important for Satan’s workers of iniquity.

HOW can the reader know this?

One sure way is to keep track of how many times these whoppers are REPEATED during the preliminaries to the last days.

The Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece) and Corporate Entertainment ALONE are responsible for a DAILY repetition factor for EACH of the three topics which is VERY HIGH.

IF the reader is in a position where he reads through the daily offerings of the Corporate Media, he will find it hard NOT to lose track of the number of times these tales are repeated.

Add to this count the number of times OTHER aspects of ‘outer space’ are repeated (for instance, one story of ‘outer space’ which is VERY popular these days is the story of a piece of outer space [an ‘asteroid’ is the most common; ‘space junk’ is another] aiming itself at the earth.

Another type of story which end times men find appealing is the one about ‘alien DNA’; suggesting that the ‘space brothers’ were behind mankind’s origins.

Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) will NEVER run out of stories to tell about outer space: space rockets, space suits, space astronauts, space pumpkins, space junk, space satellite, war in space.

OF COURSE, ALL of these stories have one thing in common: they ALL contradict God’s Word and attack true Biblical accounts.  Because man is deceived, man will believe those stories–even IF those stories contradict one another (as they often do).

It is the RARE reader who does not believe in some aspect of outer space, UFOs or ET aliens.

WHY does the reader believe these stories have ONLY been told over the past 150 years or so?

It is ALSO the RARE reader who believes the media tells him the truth.

YET, that same reader will believe the wild fairy tales that same media spins daily.

DOES the reader have any ideas why this is?

DOES the reader find it odd that the same lying sources of information are the same sources of information mankind returns to whenever there is some sort of problem?

Outer space.

UFOs.

ETs.

Invasions of earth by ‘aliens’, either hostile or friendly.

The reader will be able to see these end times deceptions play out before his very eyes soon enough.

BUT, because almost all readers are deceived, they will believe these tall tales.

DOES the reader have any idea where this is all leading?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
