1 Eternally Secure Once saved, Always saved

2 2 God’s Viewpoint There are two kinds of people in the world Lost people Saved people

3 3 Two Principles If you do not have a true understanding of salvation, you will not be able to understand eternal security. If you do not have a true understanding of eternal security, you do not have a true understanding of salvation.

4 4 a major misconception Most Christians today think that God relates to man through His love. Most Christians today think that God relates to man through His love. The truth God relates to man through His INTEGRITY, of which His love is only a part God relates to man through His INTEGRITY, of which His love is only a part

5 5 immutable God never changes the way in which He deals with us. God does not love us when we are good, and then stop loving us when we are bad.

6 6 GOD’S INTEGRITY JusticeRighteousnessLove

7 7 Three Principles: righteousness demands righteousness. justice demands justice. What the righteousness of God demands, the justice of God executes. What the righteousness of God demands, the justice of God executes.

8 8 CURSECURSE BLESS Righteousness Justice Righteousness Unrighteousness

9 9 God’s Word Romans 3:10 as it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one; Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death,.

10 10 Romans 6:23 Death means “separation from God.” Separation from God is called “spiritual death.” Sin is “singular” not “plural” (sins) Adam’s Original Sin (AOS) Born “physically” alive, but “spiritually” dead

11 11 What does this mean? Every single human being, from the moment of physical birth, stands condemned, deserving only cursing from God.

12 12 God’s Word Romans 6: but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Acts 16:31 And they said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved,.... John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

13 13 God did NOT say “whoever believes in Him, and joins a church, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and gets baptized, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and sings in the choir, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and stops sinning, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and stops drinking alcohol, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and stops smoking, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and tithes, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and becomes like Christ, should not perish, “whoever believes in Him, and reads the Bible every day, should not perish,

14 14 God’s Word John 3:16 “whoever believes,” “whosoever believeth,” “anyone who believes,” “everyone who believes,” “pas ho pisteuoon”, “ang tanan nga mosalig,” “ang tanan nga motoo,” “ang tagsatagsa nga nagatuo.”

15 15 God’s Word Belief plus nothing!

16 16 God’s Word Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, {it is} the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. 1 John 2:1-2 My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for {those of} the whole world.

17 17 God’s Word Philippians 2:5-8 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, {and} being made in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. (NAS)

18 18 God’s Word Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour when they crucified Him. Luke 23:34 But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

19 19 God’s Word Matthew 27:45-46 Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying," Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? "that is," My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?“ 2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin {to be} sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us-- for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"

20 20 God’s Word John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” Luke 23:46 And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, "Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit." And having said this, He breathed His last.

21 21 Questions How many sins were paid for by Christ on the cross? What sins were not paid for by Christ on the cross? What sin could you possibly commit today or tomorrow or next month or next year that Christ did not pay for on the cross?

22 22 1 Corinthians 1:18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, {he is} a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

23 23 The Spiritual Life God’s Divine Viewpoint Lost people Saved people Among The Saved Spiritual believers Carnal believers

24 24 God’s Word The “self-life” – the “old man” Empowered by the “sin nature” The “new life” – the “new man” Empowered by the Holy Spirit

25 25 God’s Word Romans 7:15-23 For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I {would} like to {do} but I am doing the very thing I hate. But if I do the very thing I do not want {to do} I agree with the Law, {confessing} that the Law is good. So now, no longer am I the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good {is} not. For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.

27 27 The Curse of the Human Nature Body Body Soul Soul Human Spirit

28 28 Body Body Soul Soul Human Spirit Holy Spirit Baptism of the Holy Spirit Matthew 3:11

29 29 God’s Word Matthew 3:11 "As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (NAS) 1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and {that} the Spirit of God dwells in you? (NAS)

30 GALATIANS 5:17 AgainstDesires Flesh Desires Against Spirit Desires of the SpiritDesires of the Flesh Galatians 5:19-21 Immorality Impurity Sensuality Idolatry Sorcery Enmities Strife Jealousy Anger Disputes Dissensions Factions Envying Drunkenness Carousing Things like these Galatians 5:22-23 Love Joy Peace Patience Kindness Goodness Faithfulness Gentleness Self-control

31 31 Rom 8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined {to become} conformed to the image of His Son,

32 32 God’s Word Operation K.R.Y. Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. (KJV) Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV) Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. (KJV)

33 33 “To which nature are you going to YIELD?” “Which nature is influencing what you are thinking, saying and doing?” The Result If you are yielded to your OSN, you are CARNAL. If you are yielded to the indwelling Holy Spirit, you are SPIRITUAL The Spiritual Life

34 34 The Spiritual Life Yielding, Carnality, Spirituality are all ATTITUDES They are NOT something you DO or DON’T DO

35 35 The Spiritual Life Carnality, Spirituality These terms apply to BELIEVERS ONLY

36 36 The Spiritual Life Whether you got to HEAVEN or HELL when you die depends totally, 100%, on what you think of Christ!

37 37 SPIRITUALCARNAL Attends church every Sunday Bribes clerks and government officials to keep from standing in line Gives 20% of his income to the church Sings in the choir Tells a few lies once in a whilc Worries Teaches Sunday School Drinks a beer each evening with dinner Smokes cigarettes Gossips Gambles the family money away at the Matina Galleria Studies the bible two hours every dayHas sex with someone to whom they are not married Maligns other people Murders someone Has bible study every week in their home Goes dancing at the local discotheque Pastors a church Is a graduate of a seminary Has sex with his daughter Is NOT a member of a local church Cheats when he files his income tax Harbors bitterness towards someone Abuses drugs HUMAN GOODHUMAN BAD

38 38 GOD’S INTEGRITY Three Principles: 1. God’s righteousness demands righteousness. 2. God’s justice demands justice. 3. What the righteousness of God demands, the justice of God executes.

39 39 CURSECURSE BLESS Righteousness Justice Righteousness Unrighteousness

40 40 God’s Word Hebrews 12:4-7 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by Him; For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every son whom He receives.“ It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom {his} father does not discipline? (NAS)

41 41

42 42 we never stop being “sons” Eternally secure! A spiritual spiritual son will be blessed A carnal carnal son will be disciplined

43 43 God’s Word 2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. (NAS)

44 44 God’s Word 1 CORINTHIANS 3:10-15 ACCORDING TO THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WAS GIVEN TO ME, LIKE A WISE MASTER BUILDER I LAID A FOUNDATION, AND ANOTHER IS BUILDING ON IT. BUT EACH MAN MUST BE CAREFUL HOW HE BUILDS ON IT. FOR NO MAN CAN LAY A FOUNDATION OTHER THAN THE ONE WHICH IS LAID, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST. NOW IF ANY MAN BUILDS ON THE FOUNDATION WITH GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES, WOOD, HAY, STRAW, EACH MAN'S WORK WILL BECOME EVIDENT; FOR THE DAY WILL SHOW IT BECAUSE IT IS {TO BE} REVEALED WITH FIRE, AND THE FIRE ITSELF WILL TEST THE QUALITY OF EACH MAN'S WORK. IF ANY MAN'S WORK WHICH HE HAS BUILT ON IT REMAINS, HE WILL RECEIVE A REWARD. IF ANY MAN'S WORK IS BURNED UP, HE WILL SUFFER LOSS; BUT HE HIMSELF WILL BE SAVED, YET SO AS THROUGH FIRE. (NAS)

45 45 The Spiritual Life How do I insure that I am a spiritual believer and not a carnal believer? You must be clean before the Lord. You must be clean before the Lord. You must choose to live a life of obedience. You must choose to live a life of obedience. You must be walking by means of the Holy Spirit. You must be walking by means of the Holy Spirit.

46 46 The Spiritual Life 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (NAS) 1 Thessalonians 5:19 Do not quench the Spirit; (NAS) Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (NAS) Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. (NAS)

47 47 The Spiritual Life Romans 6:13 and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin {as} instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members {as} instruments of righteousness to God. (NAS) Ephesians 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with [ by means of ] the Spirit, (NAS)

48 48 The Spiritual Life the only greatness worth pursuing in life was the greatness of grace, the only greatness worth pursuing in life was the greatness of grace, the only race worth running was the race of faith, the only race worth running was the race of faith, the only fight worth fighting was the good fight, the only fight worth fighting was the good fight, the only words worth hearing were the words of approval from the Lord Jesus Christ, the only words worth hearing were the words of approval from the Lord Jesus Christ, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
