Everlasting Life

 

   "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE (John 3:16)."

· John 6:47 and John 3:36 say, "HATH everlasting life".  The word "hath" is present tense, and means "possesses now."  If you HAVE everlasting life, could it ever stop?

· John 10:28 says, "shall NEVER PERISH".  This one English word, "never," is from four Greek words: Oume, Eis, Ho, and Aion, which mean, "No not never, at any time, or any place, male, female, or neuter, perpetually."  (Strong's Concordance 3364, 1519, 3588, & 165).

· John 10:28, 29 says, "neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand…and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand."  You are in Christ's hand.  You are in the Father's hand.  Christ and the Father are one (v.30).  You could never escape this "double security."

· John 3:18 says, "He that believeth on Him is NOT CONDEMNED."  Since you are not condemned, how could anyone condemn you to hell?  Likewise, John 5:24 says that those who believe "shall NOT come into condemnation;" but they have ALREADY PASSED from death unto life.  (See Romans 8:1, 31-34).

· John 5:22 and John 12:48 says, God the Father has committed all judgment to His Son.  Christ is the One who will judge all men…And HE says you are judged if you REJECT HIM.  Since Christ is the Judge, and He says you are not condemned if you believe, then you are NOT condemned if you believe. The case is settled!

· Hebrews 10:14 says, "For by one offering He hath perfected FOREVER them that are SANCTIFIED."  "Sanctified" is from the Greek word "hagiazo" (Strong's Concordance 37), which means "to make holy, pure and blameless."  Those who have accepted Christ's payment for their sin are given PERFECTION FOREVER, and God says you are then HOLY and BLAMELESS.  How could you go to hell when God considers you holy and blameless?

· Philippians 3:9 says that Christ's very own righteousness becomes yours when you receive Him as your Savior.  God no longer sees your own righteousness (Isaiah 64:6) when you are in His Son, but only sees Christ's righteousness instead.  Isn't Christ's righteousness good enough to get you to heaven?

· Acts 13:38, 39 says that those who believe in Christ receive forgiveness of ALL SINS and justification from ALL THINGS.  If ALL your sins are forgiven you, which sin could possibly send you to hell?

· John 6:37, 39 say that all those who come to Christ are safe because Christ says He will not cast them out for any reason.  (Since all judgment has been committed unto Christ, and He will not lose you, you shall NOT be lost!)  This is also the will of the Father.  All those who have come to Christ will be raised up at the last day.  None will be lost.  Not even YOU!  If you have come to Christ you are completely safe.

· John 17:11 says that God the Father is keeping us, through His own Name!  God cannot send us to hell for it is He who is keeping us FROM hell.

· I Peter 1:4, 5 says that God has begotten us again by the resurrection of Jesus Christ "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."  God is reserving a place in heaven for us. He is keeping us safe for our place in heaven by His own power.

· John 14:3 says, "...I go and prepare a place for you.  I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."  Christ is preparing the place in heaven that God the Father is reserving for us.  If our salvation could be lost, and if there were any chance we would not go to heaven, all this preparatory work in heaven would be for nothing; it would be in vain.

· Philippians 1:6 promises that God has begun, and God will finish, the work involved in your salvation.

· Ephesians 1:13, 14; 4:30 promise that God's Holy Spirit keeps you sealed until you are in heaven.

· Ecclesiastes 3:14 promises that this work God is doing in you will last forever.

· Hebrews 9:12 promises that God has obtained ETERNAL redemption for us!

· John 14:16, 17 says, "And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with you forever...for He dwelleth with you and shall be IN you."

· I Corinthians 6:19 says, "What?  Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is IN you, which ye have of God...?"  The Holy Spirit is IN you FOREVER.  If you go to hell, God's HOLY SPIRIT would have to go to hell as well...and this, of course, is impossible.

· Ephesians 5:30 says "we are members of His body, of His flesh, of His bones," and vs. 30 goes on to explain that "This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church."  If a saved person ever went to hell, part of CHRIST'S own body would go to hell, and this, too, is impossible.

· I Corinthians 3:11-15 explains that a Christian can, lose reward in heaven by doing bad works, but he is still saved.  I Corinthians 5:5 says his body would be destroyed (God took the disobedient Christian home before his time), but his spirit was saved.

· Romans 5:8-11 says Christians are saved from wrath, are already reconciled, and have already received the atonement.  God says we are saved.  We are safe.

· I John 5:13 says, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God that ye may KNOW that ye HAVE ETERNAL LIFE."

IN CONCLUSION

· Ephesians 2:8, 9 says, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God, not of works, lest any man should boast."

· Romans 6:23 the Bible says,

"THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE"

* Written by Dr. Hank Lindstrom

The moment you put your trust in Jesus Christ, God who can read your mind knows, saves YOU and gives you the Gift of God, eternal Life.

You do not need anyone to pray over you, or pray for you, because this is between you and God in heaven. Because of your new trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ you are now a child of God. Before you trusted in Jesus, God was your creator but now and forevermore he will be your father.

You are saved in a moment of time, because you are trusting in the true Savior now, not working your way to heaven day by day which is not even possible.

Once saved you can never be lost, for any reason. This is because you were born spiritually the moment you put your trust in Him. Just like your physical birth which brought you into this human world, your spiritual birth gave you a new spiritual life that is permanent. You were born-again, made righteous and holy in Gods eyes. In fact you have the righteousness of God himself, your are sinless and perfect in God's eyes now and that's why you can enter into a perfect heaven. 

My favorite saying is:

God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved.

You MUST put ALL your trust in Jesus to be saved, trust in the blood that He shed on the cross, trust that He is God in the flesh, trust that He made the complete payment for your sins, not just part; He paid for ALL of your sins (past, present, and future)! Trust that He rose again from the dead after 3 days and 3 nights, and in return for this trust, He gives YOU Eternal Life. All false Christians put part of their trust in Jesus and part of their trust the Church and part of their trust in themselves. If you put 99.99% trust in Jesus and 00.01% in something else, you will go to hell. It must be 100% trust in Jesus and what He did and 0% in you or your church! This information in critical... (grace always cancels works!) You are going to hell if it's by your works or you are going to heaven by Gods grace. It's as simple as that.

So I guess the question comes down to who are you trusting. Are you trusting yourself to get to heaven by being a good person and giving lots of money to your church or are you trusting Jesus, the lamb of God, that was slain for the sins of the world to get you to heaven? You receive the Gift of God (Eternal Life) as soon as you stop trusting in yourself, your church, your synagogue, your mosque, your money, or any other works and put your trust in Him and Him ALONE, Jesus Christ, Yeshua, The King of Kings, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, the Alpha and Omega, the Mighty God.

False religions are everywhere and they will find you, the one true God and His plan of salvation must be found.

If all this makes sense to you and you would like to trust Jesus as your personal Savior right now then tell the Mighty God in Heaven of your decision to trust Jesus Christ as your only hope of heaven. Tell Him that you are no longer putting your trust in your actions, or your church, or your church membership, or in your money, or in your Rabbi, or in your synagogue or your Mosque but that you are putting all of your trust in Him and the shed blood of the cross to pay your sin debt. Thank Him for doing it for you! Thank Him for giving you the Gift of Eternal Life that He paid for with His life. There is no greater deed than that of laying down your life for another.

Will you trust Jesus as your Savior right now, the one who shed His precious blood on the cross of Calvary to pay for all your sins?

Sinners Prayer

Lord, I admit that I'm a sinner & I don't understand a whole lot about the bible, but I do believe that Jesus Christ died & paid for my sins in full, by His death & shed blood on the cross. I trust right now the He died for me, was buried & rose again from the dead and will live forever more. I trust Jesus Christ right now to save me, to be my savior, to forgive my sins & to give me the GIFT OF GOD Eternal Life.   Amen

By reading this sinners prayer aloud, you are putting your trust in God and His plan of salvation. You are not saved by saying this prayer, you are saved the moment your mind made the switch from trusting in yourself to putting your COMPLETE TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST. That moment may have been five paragraphs up on this page or that moment may have been on another one of our pages. You will not feel any different, but you will be changed and changed for the better forever. Once you have trusted Jesus as your savior and received his gift of eternal life, this gift can NEVER be lost. You can NEVER go to hell for ANY reason. Your past, present and future sins were paid in full the moment you put your trust in Him. You are blameless and Holy in God's eyes now and FOREVER. If you have eternal life today what kind of life will you have in five years? ETERNAL! What kind of life will you have in ten years? ETERNAL!! What kind of life will you have in 50 years? ETERNAL!!! God does not give probationary life or temporary life, His gift is ETERNAL LIFE! Thanks be to GOD!

Why be good, now that I am assured of going to heaven? Because God's law of sowing and reaping still applies to you and me. You will reap what you sow. You will reap more than you sow and you will reap later than you sow. If you drink alcohol like a fish, you will reap a diseased liver. If you smoke like a chimney everyday, you will reap lung cancer. If you rob, murder, and steal you will reap a life in prison. You will reap what you sow. I guarantee it! Now that you are saved, when you do good things you WILL be rewarded here on earth and in Heaven. And when you do bad things you WILL lose rewards that God had planned on giving you here on earth and in Heaven. But you will NEVER lose your guarantee of going to heaven. That can never be lost for any reason!! You have God's word that your salvation can never be lost for any reason. You did not earn salvation and you do not work to keep salvation! Eternal Life, salvation, being born again, becoming a child of God, was, is, and always will be the GIFT OF GOD.

Remember: If your not saved forever... you are not saved!

Why is this true you might ask? Because if a person is not sure that they are saved TODAY / RIGHT NOW it means that they are still trying to be the savior! They can't be sure they are going to heaven because they don't know what sin's they may commit next week, next month or next year. We who have trusted in Jesus alone, can have comfort knowing that all our sins have been paid in full on the Cross of Calvary (past, present, and future sins). Jesus has already died for my sins so I don't need to pay for any sin I have or will commit in the future because Jesus already paid the price in full with His blood. So called Christians who say that you can lose your salvation because of suicide or murder or falling away from the church don't have a clue what the Bible says and clearly have not trusted Jesus ALONE!

Biblical Salvation is forsaking any other means of salvation but Christ and casting ourselves fully upon Him for eternal life.

The Gift of God, Eternal Life can never be lost once possessed for any reason. 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." You have God's promise that once you put your trust in Jesus you can never be lost for ANY reason whatsoever.

"For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” Romans 11:29 Again, God is telling you that this Gift of God that you have just received is without repentance. He can never take His gift back for any reason, no matter how bad you get, or how bad your sins are it is not possible. God would have to cease to exist for that to happen because He cannot lie.
