John 3:16 = OSAS

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

John 3:16, the most universally "known" bible verse ever created...(probably), actually teaches OSAS, and is in fact OSAS.
They are the same.
God's Grace is OSAS
John 3:16 is OSAS

Let me show you.
Lets study this together.

So....once again, let me define OSAS, so that you understand it properly, as there are many liars let loose in the world who have created a false misunderstanding about this term, and so, you need to know what it really means. The Truth.
Here is what it really means...
OSAS really means... What saved you.......keeps you saved.
We are KEPT saved by What saved Us.
= We are saved by JESUS, and we are Kept saved by Jesus.  Philippians 1:6 
Hebrews 12:2
OSAS means, that the Blood of Jesus, that saved us, keeps us saved.
Thats it.
Thats what it means.

And here is John 3:16 that explains it as i have just defined it.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world......that HE GAVE His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVES IN JESUS, would not PERISH, but HAS eternal-everylasting life."

This verse is one of the ways the NT defines OSAS, and there are many many others.

So, lets look at this scripture, in LIGHT of OSAS that means....>"we are saved by Jesus and we are KEPT SAVED by Jesus. = OSAS

Now, im going to drill down into this verse a little bit for you, so that you can get the wide perspective of it, in case you are a preacher, teacher, .... or maybe you want to do a Sunday School lesson on this verse, at some point. Therefore, (as always) i'll rightly divide it for you, using in context NT verses that support it.

John 3:16........."For God so love the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son.

So, how did God give Him?.......God gave Jesus THE Christ, to the WORLD,  as a virgin born male, who is the "2nd Adam" who does not literally have an earthly father, which means Jesus is not born with a fallen Adamic (sin nature). Jesus's spiritual nature, is God, because Jesus is God.
So then..
He lives a sinless life, and goes to the Cross and dies there..... bearing our Sin. (God so Love the world) the verse says and this is why and to whom Jesus was sacrified ...... And once this is accomplished...(Cross = Salvation), then Jesus says from the Cross...>"it is finished". And that is correct. Salvation, The Blood Atonement is now a completed OFFERING, to the WORLD, to all who would come.... Its a finished Salvation that is waiting to be given for free, ALL THE TIME, EVERYDAY, to anyone who will by FAITH "believe on the name of Jesus, and you shall be SAVED".

Then.....and here comes OSAS.. you read in the verse that the born again who have obeyed this verse, (BELIEVED) will never "PERISH".....so, that is explained in John 10:28 were Jesus says you will never "perish", (can't go to hell, can't be damned)(eternal security)... and the born again are also GIVEN .. (you dont earn it) "Eternal Life". 
Listen Saint...
Eternal life IS not a time frame.. ok? This phrase does not mean..."infinity and forever"..but rather, this is the POWER OF JESUS created concept that refers to living with Him and God, in the family of God, as the Body Of Christ, in ETERNITY.
"Eternal life", is Jesus Himself, who IS the "resurrection and the LIFE".....
See that "life"...... THAT is eternal Life.......and here it is again...... John 14:6... Jesus saying....."i am The Way, The Truth, and THE LIFE"......and there it is again.
Jesus is talking not about a time frame, but He is talking about HIMSELF< who IS Eternal Life... John 11:25 .. So,= this is OSAS......the fact that if you have Jesus..."Christ in you", and you are "in Christ", then because JESUS IS ETERNAL LIFE< then you have it right now, because you have HIM right now, and He has YOU right now
= OSAS.
Your Eternal Life, does not start after you are DEAD...... You have it NOW.
You, the born again, are translated from darkness to Light.....right now.
Jesus is the Light of the World and you are Children of the Light.....right NOW.
Or as John says in  1 John 5:13 "i write these words so that you will KNOW".
Know what?
What does John want you to KNOW? ? ?
That if you have BELIEVED on CHRIST, then you have ETERNAL LIFE.
HAVE IT.........not waiting for it....but HAVE IT, = right now.
So, see how ALL that fits like a glove with John 3:16 ?

This is the interesting thing about OSAS.....This understanding, is all over the NT.
The NT is filled with verses that speak about how Jesus saves you and keeps you saved.
Paul will tell you. John just told you, and in fact the entire NT is the Blood of Jesus being written to you as a revelation of God, and how He saved you using a Cross and KEEPS YOU Saved with the Blood of Christ that was shed for you.
= OSAS.

blessings,

<dw><

A few more verses showing we have eternal life....

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.  1 John 2:25

Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me hath everlasting life.  John 6:47

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.  1 John 5:13

John 3:16 says should not perish, not would not.  It doesn't equal osas.

"should not perish", = because Salvation has been completed.

It also can be thought of as....>Because of what Jesus did, we are now ALLOWED the gift of Salvation.

Another way to think of it is..., because you took the cure, you shall not die.

There is another way to think of it.....  which is, God speaking.... my paraphrase. "now that i have done this for you on the Cross, there is no need for you to go to hell, ive solved it all for you".

Another way to think of it is......Jesus speaking from the Cross....."I have finished your Eternal Life, as I AM your eternal life, .. come, and receive my Salvation, be forgiven, and live with me   in eternity"

Thats the context(s)

Let me give you a few other translations of the verse, as this should help you.

 

 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  NIV

For God so loved the world that he gave his only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed.  CJB

All this is saying is that those who are saved have eternal life.  It is not a guarantee of salvation to those who turn back, and it isn't even meaning just casual belief.  1 Corinthians 6:9-11 makes it clear that fornicators won't go to heaven, and there is no exception given because they believe in Jesus.

I am kjv only, so I don't recognize those mistranslations.   It says should, not shall.  Small differences like that make a huge difference.

I like the King James, too.  I was raised on it.  It's not my preferred today, but I still read it from time to time.  [I'm chasing a rabbit, but do you read the 1611 or the 1789?  I struggle with the 1611, so I stick to the 1789 when I read the King James.]

Now, your statement.

I think other scriptures answer the "should" [as in "maybe] question.  What do you think?

  •  John 6:47 - "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."
  •  John 3:18 - "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.:

I like the 1611 best.  That is what I have beside me, but I will change the spelling when posting to make it easier for others.  

Those scriptures are speaking of the elect, not those with casual faith.  In the case of the second one. It only means they have a chance where those who don't believe at all like atheists have no chance to be saved.

      I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

      My friends, I need your help. I'll do my best not to make this too long, although it is a bit of a story.
      Back in October, I saw a need in my church choir and reached out to a guy that was relatively new and was essentially getting shunned by most of the other men because he has tattoos and his ears are pierced. I actually feel really bad because I waited for a few months after I felt the initial tug and I wonder if I would be struggling so much if I hadn't. Anyway...we clicked almost immediately and soon we were talking practically every day. We are very similar and deal with a lot of the same struggles, such as depression. We've opened up to one another on a level that I've only ever replicated with my two best friends of 13+ years and we can talk for hours without it feeling like any time has passed. He has quickly become a close friend, one that I greatly cherish. 
      My issue is this: I have developed romantic feelings for him, feelings that I'm pretty sure he doesn't return. He is in a relationship at this point and it's a relationship he said he has prayed for, despite that this girl has caused him a lot of heartache. It's hard for me to watch since I don't feel she is good for him and obviously I feel that I am. It's also hard because he is one that will ghost out on the people around him when he gets wrapped up in his own affairs. He doesn't mean to, he just has had really bad examples of friendship and I'm the first one that actually fights to keep him grounded. 
      So how do I maintain this friendship in a Godly way without letting my own bias get in the way and how do I move on from my feelings? If you need me to answer any further questions that might help give better advice, please feel free to ask. I have probably forgotten something in my attempt to keep this short.
