Open Heaven for Teens 23rd April 2022
Topic: Not Forever Saved
- Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:6
Open Heaven For Teens 23rd April 2022 MESSAGE
Some people have been going about preaching a heresy that once saved is forever saved with the implication that all your actions after salvation, whether good or bad, have been covered by the blood of Jesus. Hence, you can do and undo. Some went further to say that even if you sin after giving your life to Christ, you will still make it to Heaven.
These are terrible lies from the pit of Hell.Today’s Bible reading establishes that when a righteous man returns to sin, all past righteousness becomes null and void and he will be judged as a sinner. The fact is that having once believed in Christ, backsliding can take a person to Hell. This is why you must work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12 ).
The Bible also says that whoever places his hand on the plough and looks back is not fit for the kingdom (Luke 9:62 ). Dont be deceived my child; once you give your life to Christ, you have to abide in Him by constantly living a holy life and developing your relationship with the Holy Spirit as He will guide you into all truths. This is the only way to ensure that your eternity is secure.
Father, please give me the grace to constantly abide in You so that I wont be a castaway.
