Saved and Sealed until Final Redemption
Many believers have been deceived into believing that they have received the gift of eternal life when they accept Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ saves us from our sin when we accept Him. He delivers us from the powers of darkness; He sets us free from the bondage of sin so that we can follow and obey Him. If we repent and are baptized in water then He puts His seal of acceptance on us by giving us the gift of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. That does not mean that we are finally saved.
Jesus enables us to enter the race with Him, to become children of God, to serve Him and to prove ourselves worthy of Him. It is only those who endure with Jesus Christ until the very end that will finally be redeemed, be saved from eternal damnation. Those who do not bear fruit of repentance, and who do not bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit indwelling them, who do not do the works of Christ; every branch that does not bear fruit
will get cut off and burned.
We have to endure with Jesus until the end to receive the prize of eternal life. Only those who endure with Jesus Christ until the very end will receive the prize of final redemption and they are the ones who will spend eternity with Him, those who overcome. The prize is for overcomers.
Many have been deceived to believe that they are saved and sealed and now they can go on and live for themselves. If you do not live for Jesus Christ you will not enter His kingdom.
You have to endure with Him, serve Him,follow Him and obey Him endure with Him until the very end or you will not enter His kingdom.
May Jesus bless you
