The Illusion of Salvation and Security of Salvation
Most Christian believers have an illusion of salvation and salvation security. They believe that they are saved and that when they die they will go to heaven based on certain things, based on what they believe, on Bible verses , on what other people have told them, but they have no real relationship with the Living God, with Jesus Christ. There is only ONE WAY to enter the kingdom of God and that is to OBEY Jesus Christ, to DO as He commanded and taught, His words as also recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus did not promise anybody salvation security. He said that those who endure until the end will be saved. He also said that His sheep HEAR His VOICE, they LISTEN to Him and they FOLLOW Him. People do not like these words, they like an easy security illusion. They prefer an easy back door into heaven, an easy solution. They accept the lies that people tell them and that is why they perish. The only One who can tell us whether we are pleasing to God is Jesus Christ. The only way that we can stay in His will and stay in His confidence is to FOLLOW Jesus every day.
If we obey His words, the gospel that Jesus preached as also recorded in the gospels, then Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit who will guide us into all truth. We have to REPENT, turn away from sin, ACCEPT Jesus into your life, accept Him as your Master and SUBMIT yourself to Him, to His words, to His discipline, STOP SINNING, be baptized in water and SEEK the Holy Spirit that He promised to those who OBEY Him. The Holy Spirit will GUIDE us every day. He will SPEAK to us, He will TEACH us IF we LISTEN to Him, IF we SEEK Him. He will teach us all things. He will give us understanding of the kingdom of God, of things to come. He will teach us more about Jesus so that we can know Him for real but if we do not persist and endure with Jesus, with His Spirit UNTIL THE END we will not have eternal life.
there is not guarantee of of security outside of obedience to Jesus Christ. Jesus warned that not many will be saved. He said:"Strive hard to enter the narrow gate because many will try hard and not be able. We are only secure, safe, as long as we remain in obedience to Jesus Christ, as long as we are lead by and FOLLOW the guidance of the Holy Spirit every day. Nobody else can give you that security or confirmation apart from Jesus Christ Himself, by the Holy Spirit dwelling in you. If you do not have the Holy Spirit you do not belong to Jesus Christ, and if you do not follow and obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit until the end you WILL NOT enter the kingdom of heaven. You might have an ILLUSION OF SALVATION but it is a LIE and in the end it will disappoint.
Jesus Christ is the only way. Those who are lead by the Spirit of God, THEY are the children of God. Those who endure with Jesus until the very end, they will find the narrow door. The others will be TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTED when Jesus says to them:"Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness."
Are you following Jesus Christ every day? Or are you complacent? Do you have an ILLUSION of salvation and salvation security? WAKE UP and SEEK Jesus. Hear from Him and stay with Him until the very end. Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY. Follow Him!
May Jesus bless you.
