Jesus's Faith = Your Eternal Security

Recommended Posts

 

I thought i would finish the short teaching-message series for you i began 2 Thread's ago, and thank you for reading.

This will be the 3rd part, regarding the same Topic, which generally speaking is regarding Eternal Security.

To finish this 3 part, lets look at FAITH.

First, there is a general misconception many Believers have about Faith, as THE savior.   Which of course is not the case.  Many who are not really  time invested in rightly dividing the word will never be deeply connected to an understanding of God's Amazing Grace, So,.. this type will usually  have a theologically  misguided idea about "faith" being their savior. And because of this, which is probably caused by them believing  misleading teaching that came ither from the pulpit or worse,  too much time spent over years studying theologically unsound bible  commentaries while their BIBLE became a dust magnet.   This  type believer is convinced that Faith saves them, and so, they believe and teach that the born again must hold onto their faith, or otherwise, they lose their salvation as a result of not holding onto it.   = This is not the truth, but a lot of people believe it and teach it.

So, lets nail something down in your soul so that you can rely on the Truth.

You are not saved by holding on to anything.  You are saved because GOD is holding on to you thru the Blood of Jesus.

Now, from the last Thread, you'll recall (if you read it) ....that is  was centered on Philippians 1:6...... "God who began your salvation IN YOU, will  HIMSELF be Faithful to complete it"...= for you.

So, as this is the case....then what  your faith did, is get God to release His Righteousness unto you.  So, its the Righteousness of Christ that God gives you, thru your BELIEVING, that is now counted as you being "justified by Faith", once and for all, in God's eternal perspective.

Faith is not the Savior.  GOD is the savior, thru Christ.  And once you gave God your faith, once you BELLIEVED, then God Accepted this and this became your righteousness, that is God's  eternal gift to you,  that gave you the new birth, and put you "in Christ", and "Christ in You".

God left Heaven, and became one of Us, virgin born,  just to do this for you.  Just to die for you...   Its an eternal Love Gift paid for by the Blood of God Himself, as Jesus on the Cross.

2 ways to think of Faith would be to consider it the Channel thru which God sent His Righteousness.   Or, you could consider Faith as the transmission device thru which God  imputed His Righteousness into you, and upon you.

But no matter how you consider faith, it is God who Saves and Faith activated Him to DO IT for you as a GIFT.  "the Gift of Righteousness"...

THE end result is that you are SAVED. BORN AGAIN.  Heir of God and Joint Heir with Christ.      A completed SALVATION, that is ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY based on Jesus shedding His blood for you, so that your sin is removed, forgiven, and in its place what was your unrighteousness has now become  Born again YOU as "the Righteousness of Christ".  This is who you are now. You are now "in Christ" because Christ's very righteousness has become your new Eternal Identity.

Christ is where you are, (in you)  and you are where He is, "in Christ"... forever and ever and ever.    Amen.

So, here is the end result of your faith.....

This is so remarkable.

Look at this wonderful verse.  Hebrews 12:2

'"Looking unto Jesus  the author and finisher of our faith"

Look at that.   This is more remarkable Grace.

As some of  you read in the Thread from yesterday, It is God who starts (in you) and complete for you, your SALVATION..... Philippians 1:6

So, now , Praise God, you have Jesus Himself who now LITERALLY takes over your faith, within  the Kingdom of God, and FINISHES IT FOR YOU.... 

You gave God your faith, then God takes this and starts and completes your Salvation, while Christ takes your Faith and FINISHES THIS FOR YOU AS WELL.

Jesus is the "author" of your faith, by being the one who wrote it, in His blood.  Then He finishes it, by His Resurrection, which is your Redemption and the Blood Atonement.

When you "Look unto Jesus", you are BELIEVING....in the Gospel.

To "Look unto" means to place trust in, and to BELIEVE...."unto Salvation".   and then God and Christ take it from there.

Grace is remarkable.   God's Grace is a GIFT that in all ways totally completes your redemption for you. 

Its starts with believing the gospel (faith), then God completes your Salvation and Christ "authors" your Faith after you Believe. Its a literal and eternal contract between you God and Christ.  This contract is  literally  written in the Blood of God, as Christ on the Cross.   And this contract is your Salvation, and its a FREE GIFT.

Isn't all this Amazing?

Its Amazing GRACE, is what it is... and the more you look at it, the more Amazing it becomes to KNOW.

 

 

God bless,

 

 

<B><

      Here is a thread to build each other up in the faith. "Therefore encourage (comfort) and edify (build one another up), just as you are already doing. (1 Thess 5:11) 
      Quotes, true stories and poems are all great ways to do this.
      I invite you to join with me in sharing uplifting things your brothers and sisters here have previously posted that have been a blessing (especially edifying) to you.
      Don't forget to credit the person they came from. 
      Things by others who are not members (such as people in your life, famous quotes that are inspiring, original stuff)...are all welcome. 
      Please, no debate-triggering topics or negative posts. We all get enough of that. (Even on the daily news. lol) God bless you.
      Food for thought-
      Not every discussion has to be a debate. Let's make this thread different  and show the world how true 1 Peter 1:22 is: "Now that by your obedience to the truth through the Spirit you have purified yourselves and have come to have a sincere love for other believers, love one another earnestly with all your heart."
      "Behold! How they love one another."    
      One of the most profound comments made regarding the early church came from the lips of a man named Aristides, sent by the Emperor Hadrian to spy out those strange creatures known as "Christians." Having seen them in action, Aristides returned with a mixed report. But his immortal words to the emperor have echoed down through history: "Behold! How they love one another."

      When we think of the phrase "using someone", then most of us immediately have the idea of a person who is carnally manipulating someone else.   Another way to think of it is "taking advantage" of someone.  In Both cases, its wrong.   But with God, using Him, is Faith.   Let me explain.... Let say you paid  $100,000 for your kid to have the opportunity to take up space in a 4 yr Ivy League College, where they'll turn them into a politically corrected Christ Rejecting Socialist the first 2 yrs, then bake them until well done, the final 2 yrs. Now, any College will do this to your child for your money, but those will, most especially.  Yet, you paid to USE what they OFFER.  So, in this case your using their educational system, is your right, it is what you have paid for, its what you are supposed to do. Sure.   Now with God, ... He has paid with the Blood of Jesus, for you to come and use Him. If you are born again, then you have an open door of continual access to God, BECAUSE of what Christ has done for you. God actually sent the Bread Of Heaven down here to Die, so that by purchasing you back to Him with Christ's Blood, <>redeeming you for all eternity<>, you are given full access to God. 24/7, for as long as God lives. Listen, 100 yrs after you are passed from this earth an into God's glorious  eternity, you wont even remember that you were here.   So, what does it mean to be "Blood bought", and have full access to God? Its means you ALWAYS have full access to God.  That's literally what it means to be redeemed. You are redeemed from judgement for your sin, (Hell).... & you are redeemed from the curse of the law, so that the Law is no longer your JUDGE. The Law can't judge the born again, and God won't judge the born again, because JESUS has already been judged and SLAIN....>HE DIED.   = THERE IS YOUR JUDGEMENT DO YOU in ETERNITY......It fell on Jesus, on Earth. = The Cross. ITS GONE. !!   When the new Testament tells you that Jesus is the Light of the world, and that you have been translated from darkness TO LIGHT, this means you have entered into a  brand new eternal identity ("in Christ") and new situation. (New Creation IN Christ).    You are now God's.  Literally.  Bought with a price.  And that price is the Blood of Jesus.  You are NOT your own.  You are under NEW OWNERSHIP....  Jesus's BLOOD paid for you to belong to God, and not just until you mess up again...  The Blood of Jesus, is the Grace of God, and where your sin is found, God's Grace is greater then your sin.  IT not only covers it, but God does not even remember it.   Romans 4:8 goes even deeper into the Revealed Light of Redemption.   The Payment for all your sin Who Himself bled on the Cross...... is eternal, because the Blood that paid for your forgiveness is not ordinary Blood.  No, its GOD's Blood.   Jesus is God... And Jesus shed God's Blood for YOU, which is WHY its an eternal sacrifice... Once and for ALL.  Tho, this Holy Redeeming Blood is only APPLIED by God to those who BELIEVE and are Born Again.  Jesus said... "YOU MUST be Born again", and His Holy Blood poured out  provides the only means that God accepts to accept you, or anyone. Its available to everyone.   This SALVATION. This Free Gift of Righteousness.  This justification before God, BY Faith......   But, not everyone will BELIEVE.    Satan rejected God, because he wanted to be God.  The angels that followed Satan, rejected God.   Jesus the Christ, IS God.   So, Unbelievers down here, CHRIST REJECTORS..... are doing what Satan and his followers did, up there, and the end result is the same for them all.   Jesus said that if you do not believe in Him, believe that He alone is the Savior-Messiah, then you will die in your sin.  And you'll do more then that.  You'll meet God as eternal Judge upon your death,  and you'll pay for your Christ Rejection, forever.   So, reader, if you have not trusted in Christ, then do it now...... Now.   If You will take Christ into you heart right now, then God will take you into His heart, forever...... That God's Promise.  God is waiting for you, all your life.   He is not Lost, YOU ARE....... So, once God's Redeeming Blood has made you GOD'S Child, His property, His BODY of CHRIST, BORN AGAIN....then as God's Body of Christ, God actually wants you to USE HIM constantly, by Faith.   Now lets talk about that...     God is Love, and God has a work.  His work is to SAVE,  HELP, to RESTORE, to BLESS, TO HEAL, and to ENLIGHTEN, all of His Children, and to finally transform them into the very likeness of Jesus The Christ when you meet Him. And allowing God by your Faith to help you, with EVERYTHING,  is how you use God.   Using God, is to allow Him by you Faith, to do for you what HE LOVES TO DO.  As all this is just God manifesting His Love, as all these imputations. as all this HELP.   Love, God's love, is God doing for you because He Loves you....... exactly Like He Gave Christ to you as a GIFT.   If you are born again, then  You already USED His offer, you accessed It, you took advantage of God's Goodness, when you trusted in and believed on Christ, and God Saved you.   Using God, is to seek God by faith to do what His Love wants to do for you all the time. When you use Him, you are giving Him the FAITH that He says, pleases Him, and if you don't, you are not pleasing Him as He would want you to do it, constantly. Faith, is using God to give His supply  into all your needs and create inside you the God type happiness that He wants you to have, "the Joy of the Lord".   All this "riches in Glory" is gained when you by faith, use Him,  and He thereby does His heavenly work for you as He WANTS TO DO. God loves to be used for your benefit. He wants to be used by your Faith, as this pleases Him.  Be sure you do it.
