This information is offered with the hope that YOU can come to KNOW the Lord personally.


Romans 8:16   The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 
 
1 John 5:10   He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself:  he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 
 

1 John 5:11   And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 
 

1 John 5:12   He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 

Commentary: HATH is present tense. You have ETERNAL LIFE now.
 


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. 
 

Commentary: That you may KNOW you HAVE (present tense) ETERNAL LIFE.  Is it ETERNAL? Do you have it now?  Well, then, it is settled.


John 10:27   My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 
 
Commentary: His sheep HEAR (receive) what the Lord says.  No one who rebels at God's Word is His child.


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. 
 
John 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. 

 
Commentary: “HATH” is present tense, right now, dear friend, “EVERLASTING LIFE.”  Oh, yes, “PASSED”.  This means already completed.


John 6:44   No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Commentary: It is done by God Himself.


John 8:47   He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. 
 
Commentary: It is a dangerous thing to rebel at the Word of God.  Because we receive the Word of God we know we are His sheep.


Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

Commentary: Faith results upon RECEIVING the Word of God.


Romans 8:38-39   For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,   Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Commentary: Absolutely NOTHING can separate us (His children) from the love of God.


2 Corinthians 1:22   Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

Commentary: We are SEALED (it is FINISHED) and we have received the down payment (earnest).  There is NO way for us to ever be out of the body of Christ.


Ephesians 1:13-14   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,   Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Commentary: The Holy Spirit Himself SEALED us.



Understanding the true nature of salvation gives you absolute joy and certain knowledge that you are saved.

Salvation is not something we do.  Salvation is a person - Jesus Christ.  If we are IN Him, it is a settled matter.
