Jn 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. Jn. 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. Jn 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 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. All three of these texts explicitly deal with the question of possible future loss of salvation of genuine children of God and all three texts use the future tense to deny that explicit possibility. a. For example in John 10:28 "they SHALL NEVER perish" b. For example in John 6:39 "I SHALL lose nothing...but SHALL raise it" c. For eample in John 5:24 "SHALL not come into condemnation" 2. In all three texts there are no conditions or exceptions presented: a. For example in John 10:28 the indicative mode is used to declare what is factual rather than the subjunctive mood which is used for conditions or potential. My sheep do these things as factual. b. For example in John 6:39 Jesus declares the future resurrection unto life of the individual "it" of the collective "of all" thus making the Father's will not merely desire but factual in regard to the future resurrection. c. For example in John 5:24 Jesus completely rules out any future judgement and does this based upon a completed action in the past that already brought the believer out of eternal death to eternal life. Hearing and believing are not presented as conditions but as descriptives of those who shall not come into judgement. If they were meant to be conditions they would have been presented in the subjunctive mood as that is the mood for conditions and potential. 3. All three of these text place the entire responsibility for future salvation upon Christ's ability not upon the individual being saved. a. For example in John 10:28-30 future salvation is characterized by the ability of the Son and the Father not to lose such rather than the ability of the believer. b. For example in John 6:39 future salvation is characterized by the ability of Christ to raise each "of all" those given to the Son unto eternal life. c. For example in John 5:24 the character of life given as "eternal" is emphasized by no future possibility of coming into judgement as that judgement has already been completely determined in the past at the point of faith in Christ (Perfect tense). 4. No conditions are placed upon the believer in any of these texts as they are the objects of salvation not the participants in salvation. a. For example in John 10:28 the Lord uses the indicative mood that states a fact rather than using the subjunctive mood that would present conditions or potential. b. For example in John 6:39 both the Father and the Son are the actors presented as responsible for the future salvation of the individual "it" in the resurrection. c. For example in John 5:24 the responsibility rests upon the veracity of the Son's promise in regard to a past, present and future points of time.
