Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, What does it mean to be sealed in this verse? Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. What does it mean to be sealed UNTO the day of redemption? John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. What English tense(past,present or future) is the phrase "shall not come into condemnation"? How long is "everlasting"? Why does the passage say hath(which means "has right now") instead of saying might have or could have? Hebrews 12:6-8 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 1. Why is that God chaseneth and scourageth his children? 2. if these people in Hebrews 12:6-8 lose salvation when they sin as many people believe in this wicked doctrine of insecurity how can it be said that he chastens his sons wouldn't they no longer be sons at this point? 3. What is the reason according to the above verses that God does not chasten for sin? 1 John 5:13 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. can you ever really KNOW that you have eternal life if it possible to lose it? John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shallnever perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. 1. What the word "never perish" mean to you? 2. What does it mean to be plucked out of the Son and the Father's hand? 3. Do you fall under the category of "any man" Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: What does this mean to you? 1 Corinthians 3:11-15 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. How is it that this man's work is burned in this judgment, yet he is still somehow saved?
