    Not "MUST" but "WILL" ...

    • [Philippians 1:6 NASB] 6 [For I am] confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
    • [Ephesians 2:10 NASB] 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
    • [John 6:44 NASB] 44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.
    • [John 10:26-29 NASB] 26 "But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep. 27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. 29 "My Father, who has given [them] to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of the Father's hand.

    That is how you understand it. In any case good works are the purpose and a result of being saved, Ephesians 2:10, 2 Corinthians 5:17.

    Soloman was not sealed by the Holy spirit until the day of redemption. This only happens in the church age .

    John 6.44 simply says ( to those before the cross and the giving of the Holy Spirit) that they can come . notice the ' can come ' . it says nothing about there choice to come or not .

    The sheep are simply the ones hearing from the Father before the arrival of Jesus . Actually after the cross believers are more than just ' in ' Gods hand ( of course those that believe you can lose salvation will say the verse says nothing about about a person ' jumping out of his hand ) After the cross , believers are his hand ( being in His body ..being in Him .

    Do you have any verses after the cross on eternal security. ( I do believe in Eternal security, but not based on ' election ' ).

    What does that mean to you? "Sealed by the Holy Spirit". What all do you read into 'sealed by the Holy Spirit'?

    Does it somehow excuse Solomon's idolatry in his old age?

    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,

    Being sealed by the Holy spirit until the day of redemption means just that . After you believe the Gospel we are sealed by the Holy spirit until the day of redemption. This means that we cannot be lost .

    But in the OT they could have the Holy Spirit depart as it did with Saul . And it's why David prayed not to have the Holy Spirit taken from him . The Holy spirit did not ' indwell ' believers in the OT . This only happens in the NT

    So in Barry Johnson's theology there was no eternal security for the OT believer.

    The Calvinist claim God desires to save some people by compulsion is pure fiction with no support anywhere in scripture.
    The fact God chooses for salvation through faith in the truth is obvious from 2 Thessalonians 2:13.

    Calvinism's TULI are bogus and destructive.

    This may be why that did not just stick with once saved, always saved, but instead, they muddy the water.

    Do you have some verses to show that an old testament saint had eternal security?

    Lordship salvation is false, Matthew 7:21-23. It is our Lord Jesus being our Christ, 1 John 5:1, so we are born of God.

    Now Jesus is Lord of both the saved and the perishing, Romans 14:11. 2 Corinthians 5:10-11. Romans 8:34.

    Why cant you just trust that because you trusted and believed the Gospel now you are sealed by the Holy spirit until the day of redemption. Meaning you don't have to endure to the end to be saved . Especially as enduring to the end is a works gospel . When Jesus says " endure to the end " it's not talking about from when we get saved till we die . It's about those during the tribulation and its about physical death most likely. Either way it's for those ( future) during the trib .

    Essentially it means God will make sure the ' elect ' ( calvernist version of the frozen chosen) will endure till the end to final salvation. The only way to know ( guess ) that your one of the awakened frozen chosen is through your perseverance till the end . If your not persevering or have persevered till the end you must have been a non elect all a long .
    This is bondage and it's no better than ' works for salvation.

    To place a caveat of “before the cross and the giving of the Holy Spirit” as nullifying scripture, requires us to discard everything in the OT and Gospels and as not being applicable to the Church and Christians. I cannot accept that premise.

    You also missed the point of John 6:44 as it related to your question.

    [John 6:44 NASB] 44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.”

    When Jesus said “and I will raise him up”, who is the HE that Jesus was speaking of?
    When Jesus said “and I will raise him up”, did the word WILL mean WILL or MIGHT?
    Where in that promise from the lips of God Incarnate is the word IF or WORK?
