There`s no sense in warning you about something not existing, If one can not be lost after being saved, then God would not repeatedly warn against apostacy.
Ezekiel 33:13. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousness’s shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
Beloved, I earnestly pray for you that bad history shall not repeat in your life in Jesus name. Today, globally bad history is repeating, repeatedly in the lives of multitudes both the world lings and the so called believers. When a person personally experience a misfortune, the person gains experience, but when it happened to others, the person gains wisdom. Beloved, you are a wise person, please sustain your wise tempo. Proverbs 9:12. If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it. Deuteronomy 32:29. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! Proverbs 19:20. Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
HOW DO YOU SUSTAIN YOUR WISE TEMPO? LEARN FROM THE MISFORTUNES OF OTHERS IN BIBLE DAYS AND OUR OWN CONTEMPORARY TIME.
The Bible is a book of wisdom and is repleted with stories of painful consequences of many that started well with God and ended up shamefully. Remember Adam and Eve, Lot’s wife, Esau, Balaam , king Saul, Sampson, the six hundred thousands Israelites that left Egypt and only two, Caleb and Joshua got to the promised land. Numbers 14:30. Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.
THE BIBLE SAYS, YOU AS A PERSON SHOULD LEARN FROM THESE PEOPLE AND AVOID BAD HISTORY FROM REPEATING IN YOUR LIFE.
Bad history shall not repeat in your life in Jesus name. Romans 15:4. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. 1 Corinthians 10:11. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
ONE MAJOR VICE THAT MUST NOT BE MENTIONED IN YOUR LIFE IS LOOKING BACK.
See what the scriptures says about Israel in their shameful, degrading backsliden estate. Jeremiah 2:3. Israel was holiness unto the Lord, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the Lord. Jeremiah 2:13. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. Jeremiah 2:18-19. And now what hast thou to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Sihor? or what hast thou to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river? Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.
Jeremiah 7:23-26. But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.
NO WONDER GOD TOLD EZEKIEL THE WATCHMAN, THAT, THE CONSEQUENCE OF THE RIGHTEOUS TURNING BACK IS UNFATHOMABLE AND SEVERELY PAINFUL.
Ezekiel 33:13. When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. See it affirmed in structures. Ezekiel 3:20: Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Ezekiel 18:24: ¶But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, anddoeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. But then, the panacea for anyone that has backslide is genuine biblical repentance, not regretting. 2 Chronicles 7:14. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Proverbs 28:13. He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Beloved, I am persuaded of you, that , you are still standing. But just in case , you too have looked back. Repent now.
Dearly beloved, there is a fact that must keep all of us believers and you in particular , humble. There is none of us that is immune from sliding back. 1 Corinthians 10:12. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. You are quite aware that, the end time is here. One painful prophecy from the blessed Holy Spirit, is the mass departure from the faith or backsliding at the end of time. See some of the prophecies. Matthew 24:12. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 1 Timothy 4:1-2. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
2 Timothy 4:1-4. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
THIS WAS WHAT INFORMED THE CAUTION OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, TO BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR, ON THE POSSIBILITIES OF LOOKING BACK OR DEPARTING FROM THE FAITH.
See some of them.Luke 9:62. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Luke 17:32. Remember Lot’s wife. Revelation 2:4-5. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. See affirmation from the blessed Holy Spirit. Galatians 1:6-9. I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Galatians 2:18. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 2 Peter 2:20-22. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. 1 John 2:19: They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
THE ONLY THING TO DO TO AVOID THIS, WHICH YOU MUST BE DOING TILL CHRIST COMES, IS TO LIVE FOR CHRIST.
2 Corinthians 5:14-15. For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 1 Peter 4:1-2. Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
JESUS CAUTIONS BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR, ON THE POSSIBILITIES OF DEPARTING FROM THE FAITH.
Friend, you are few among the believers in our time, that must be celebrated. This is because of your awareness and resolve to be part of the dawning rapture. The good Lord shall grant your desire in Jesus name. However, please do not follow the multitude within and outside the church who today are obstinately and wilfully sinning against God with impunity. Such people are classified as foolish virgins. Their regrets shall be beyond comprehension after we have gone in the rapture.
Hebrews 10:26-29. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? Glory to God, you are not among them, so never ever draw back. Receive grace to do so in Jesus name. Hebrews 10:38: Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
BUT CONTINUE IN FOLLOWING THE LORD, BELIEVING, THE TOTALITY OF THE UNCHANGING, INFALLIBLE AND ETERNAL WORDS OF GOD IN THE BIBLE.
John 8:31. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; Acts 13:43. Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
See you at the top in Jesus name.
