Many of us do it. We live an Old Testament existence in a world of New Testament promises. I guess Law will always appeal to our flesh more than Grace. So we go along mistaking the physical lesson of the Old Testament for the spiritual truth of the New Testament.
God’s grace is connected with His power … and He is far too strong to ever let me go (1 Peter 1:5)! His gracious commitment to me when I commit my soul to Him precludes my past sins and all my future sins (Phil. 1:6). God agreed to save me when I was 12 yrs old – even though I hadn’t even committed the bulk of my sins yet. He knew what I was going to do, and still He graciously saved me from my sins. Just as my acts of goodness cannot count toward my salvation, neither can my acts of sin and selfishness count against it. I was saved by grace, and grace is always victorious over sin (Ephesians 2:8-10)!

They … Continue reading Getting Ready for Deliverance
Is God indecisive? Is the Bible divided? No! Yet some would question hundreds of clear Bible teachings (teaching eternal security) because they do not understand a dozen vague passages (seemingly implying insecurity of salvation). The whole of Scripture has a singular teaching about salvation... either the Bible teaches you CAN or you CAN'T lose your salvation - not both.
