    This subject has probably been discussed before. If it has please, post the threads.

    I know what I believe. I know that I am heaven bound, but the discussions on some of the threads could certainly bring doubt to people who are not sure.

    Many times I think it is way a person interprets the words: saved, lost, salvation, accepting Jesus, trusting Jesus, head knowledge, heart knowledge, believing, etc.

    Your thoughts, please?

    Beloved let us love one another for loves is of God and everyone that loveth "IS BORN OF GOD"... And knoweth God!... Now you brethren make your own interpretation on the scripture but the scripture plainly states that those who are in this condition are heaven bound!... Brother Glen [​IMG]

    Greetings All,

    In the book of John chapter 5 verse 24 is right, but in Matthew chapter 7 verse 21-23 is says:

    " Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. "

    " Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? "

    " And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. "

    For a better look read this whole chapter Matthew 7, Jesus speaks in parables alot here, but if you ask God to reveal the truth he will.

    How do I know??

    Because John 1: 12 gives me His word that if I would receive Him I can then become a child of God!! And I am simply taking Jesus at His word--that He is going to do what He said He would do!

    John 1: 12 says, "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the Children of God, even to them that believe on His name."

    Your friend,
    Blackbird

    Romans 10:9 (KJV1769):

    That if thou shalt confess with thy
    mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in
    thine heart that God hath raised him from
    the dead, thou shall be saved.

    I was told this. I was reluctant to
    do this for awile cause i had some pet
    sins. But then i repented. Then
    i did confess that Jesus is my Lord
    while believing that God had raised Him
    from the dead. Then Jesus saved me
    and i became my Savior as well as my Lord.
    I became a "tick" on somebody's score
    card [​IMG]

    That was in April 1952. Now it is November
    2002, and i'm still saved. Not by my
    efforts, but by the efforts of Jesus. Amen!

    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.

    Because EVERY human being is a creature made in the image of God. (gen 1:26)

    Because mankind is the only created creature that possesses a Living part of God.

    Because each individual of the human race is a combination of the spirit of man, and the spirit of God and at birth is forever joined together.

    Because mankind was always intended to be a part of Him throughout eternity..past, present, and future.

    Because God IS Infinite Love...(whether we choose to accept this fact, or not)...He Is..

    John 3:5-6

    5) Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    (Acts 2:38, " Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. ")
    (Mark 16:15-18, " 15. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." )

    6) That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    (John 4:23-24 " 23. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. ")

    Sincerely,
    Apostlic Truth
