CONCERNING  PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS

(Can a Christian Lose Their Salvation?)

THE BIBLE SAYS

Compiled by Daniel L. Wakefield

 

·         Ezekiel 33:18                 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

 

·         Matthew 13:19-22         When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.  This is he which received seed by the way side.   But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.   He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.                    

 

·         Matthew 24:10-13         And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another and shall hate one another.  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

 

·         Matthew 25:8-12           And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you:  but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

 

·         Matthew 25:28-30         Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.  For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance:  but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.  And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness:  there shall weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

·         Luke 9:62                        And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God

 

·         II Corinthians 13:5        Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.  Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

 

·         Galations 4:9                 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

 

·         II Timothy 4:10              For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica…

 

·         Hebrew 10:38                Now the just shall live by faith:  but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
