TOPIC: NOT SAVED ONCE, FOREVER SAVED, BUT ONLY THOSE WHO WILL ENDURE TO THE END:
By Pastor Ekpono Udofia.
Read: Matthew 10: 12-22 KJV
12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
The aim of this devotional is to prepare the readers for RAPTURE. Therefore, today’s devotional is to disabuse the belief that once you are saved, it is forever saved. Rather, those who will endure to the end shall be saved. Jesus Christ, the author of our salvation is the one teaching us here, and He cannot lie.
Many will go to hell, not because they were preparing to go there, but because their mindsets were MANIPULATED and CONDITIONED to believe falsehood. False teachers teach false doctrines, and false doctrines produce false believers. False believers are harmful and very wicked to TRUE BELIEVERS.
When the WORD OF GOD is mocked, rejected or spoken evil of, the angels are taking records, and are reporting you to the FATHER in heaven. The dust now bears witness against you. The dust begins to fight you. There is no one who is not walking on the dust, and so, the dust to fight you means the land”s increase will reject you.
We are like sheep in the midst of wolves (FALSE BRETHREN). And so, we must be very sharp – witted, clear -eyed,savvy, canny and astute. Those who are believers does rightousness ( 1 John 2:29). They don’t claim RIGHTOUSNESS. They are doers of the WORD, but not hearers who deceive themselves. Never be deceived; those who are believers live to please God. They bear FRUITS of rightousness which is reflected in GOOD WORKS. Yes, we were not saved through GOOD WORKS, but whosoever was genuinely saved will show forth by GOOD WORKS.
Every believer receives POWER through the HOLY SPIRIT ( John 1:12). This SPIRITUAL POWER is meant to empower us for His works. God’s work requires that we get EMPOWERED, otherwise, our hearts will melt by the many afflictions and sufferings we will be subjected to in the hands of the FALSE BRETHREN.
The Holy Spirit knew that many who claim they were standing will fall, He therefore admonishes us to SOBER AND BE WATCHFUL (1 Thessalonians 5: 6-:8, Titus 2:6, Titus 2:12, 1 Peter 1:13, 1 Peter 4:7, 1 Peter 5:8)…To be sober is to be level headed and humble to know that one careless mistake can bring you down. To be sober is to be conscious of where we are; that we are in the world, and so, we must be cautious and be guarded.
I prophesy,”Every false doctrine preparing you for hell, I command, in the name of Jesus Christ, LOOSE YOUR MIND right now, and by FIRE. Whatever you believed that was FALSEHOOD is leaving your mind right now. The grace to unlearn and relearn is released. Take it in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen”.
