OSAS. A simple explanation.

Bible study tip #9: When presented with competing doctrines, the one that makes the most SENSE is the preferred one. (See my blog post: “tips for Bible study”).

The sum total of the other side : Once again, if their doctrines be true, and a person can lose their salvation, then THEY have zero assurance of heaven, and stand just as much chance of going to hell as anyone else, including the unbelievers.

They may fail in the end, and see hell, while an unbeliever may believe and go to heaven. They may very well end up in hell with those they condemn. That’s fatalistic nonsense. A complete absurdity. IF all that counts is where fate finds you in the end, what guarantee do you have that you won’t go to hell when you die? You don’t. That is not good news folks.

When I chose Jesus, I did not surrender free will, but I made an irreversible decision.

The Once Saved Always Saved side:

Salvation is the free gift of God to the Believer, by grace through faith, not of works, lest any man boast. Eph 2:8-9.

The Lord may slay a believer for rebellion, (Gen 38:3-10, I Cor 5:5, Acts 5:1-10, 1 Sam 28:19) He may shorten my days because of rebellion, He may strip me of my rewards at Judgement, he may even give me stripes, (Luke 12:47) but JESUS will NEVER, EVER forsake a believer. We belong to Jesus forever. THAT is good news folks.

John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. This Is an unconditional promise to the believer. Jesus loves us that much.

Rom 2:6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

God is not mocked, we are accountable for our behaviour and deeds in the flesh. But it is not a salvific issue.

Dan 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Those that labor in the Lord will be rewarded accordingly, not all will recieve the same reward.

Mt 25:21 thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

What if we lose faith? Jesus owns us. We are bought with a price.

1 Cor 6:20: For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
2 Tim 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

There is nothing hidden at judgement. Every idle word will be brought out. Then how do we keep a short account? How do we NOT carry any sin into judgment? PRAY!

1 J 1:8-10 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is ot in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

1 John 2:28 Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.

2 J 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.


Mt 6:11-12 Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.

Even in apostasy, Jesus will not forsake a believer. He holds up his end of the deal unconditionally. Solomon was an apostate. 1 K 11:4 For when Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and he was not wholeheartedly devoted to the LORD his God, as his father David had been. Eli is another example.

Luke 12:47 And that servant, who knew his lord’s will, and made not ready, nor did according to his will, shall be beaten with many’stripes.

Luke 12:47 But the one who unknowingly does things worthy of punishment will be beaten with few blows.

1 Tim 5:24 Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.

We all will give account for the good and the bad.

“So say your prayers and take your vitamins” (Hulk Hogan, retired professional wrestler), and look forward to seeing and spending eternity with Jesus one day!

God Bless!

    I’m going to heaven. That’s about the only thing I can be sure of, in this life – Because God is not a liar and he will never leave me nor forsake me.
