  • The Perseverance of the Saints

    Those whom God has elected ans accepted in His beloved Son, whom He has called efficaciously, justified, adopted and sanctified through His Spirit, cannot ever nor completely nor finally fall from the state of grace, rather will certainly persevere in it to the end and will be eternally saved and glorified MATTHEW 24:13;ROMANS 8:28-30;1 CORINTHIANS 1:8-9. This perseverance of the saints does not depend from their will or their free will, rather by the immutability of the eternal decree of God, the election that comes by the free and immutable love of the Father only on the basis of the efficacy of the merits, virtue and intercession of Jesus Christ ROMANS 8:28-39, the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the seed of God inside the born again believer, born by Him. All depends from the nature of the eternal covenant of grace from which comes the certainty and the infallibility of God’s promises, the promises the Father made to the Son based upon His faithfulness and obedience and by consequence toward ALL them who are in Christ ROMANS 8:35-39;2 TIMOTHY 2:12;2 TIMOTHY 4:18; HEBREWS 10:39;1 PETER 1:2-5;JUDE :2-5. Certainly the elect of God, can through many temptations of Satan and the world with the remaining corruption in the flesh and with neglect, fall even into grievous sins and for a determined time even continue in them. In this state they will run into the Fatherly disapproval of God and consequently grieve the Holy Spirit and quench and hinder His work in their life. They become in such condition subjected to the holding back of many of God’s blessings and can incur a hardening of their hearts which will cause the certain discipline and correction of the Father, even with extreme severity God corrects them and brings them back to repentance and the abandoning of the sinful condition HEBREWS 12:5-11. In certain serious sinful situations the Father can inflict such severe and grave discipline such as judge the flesh, the body that is, causing it to become subject to sickness and in extreme cases even causing physical death, only physical not spiritual 1 CORINTHIANS 5:5;1 CORINTHIANS 11:30-32. The perseverance of the saints after all as every other aspect of Christian life is only by God’s grace. Salvation is entirely of God, conversion, justification, sanctification, perseverance and eternal glory. The elect to salvation therefore is protected in the perseverance through the power of God and the intercession of the High Priest Jesus Christ LUKE 23:31-32;ROMANS 8:31-34;HEBREWS 7:25. This aspect is connected between two realities of salvation, predestination or election and assurance of salvation. All those who God predestined or elected for salvation, God protects and preserves from falling from His grace JOHN 6:39; JOHN 17:11-15, those whom God has justified after all in His salvation plan He has already glorified ROMANS 8:28-30, He WILL bring to completion the work He has started in us PHILIPPIANS 1:6 , 1 PETER 1: 2-7 elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace be multiplied.

    3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ
