THE HOLY SPIRIT ABIDES WITH THE BELIEVER FOREVER
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter (The Holy Spirit), that he may abide with you FOREVER” (John 14:16).
THE BELIEVER EXPERIENCES ONLY ONE SPIRITUAL BAPTISM
“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in ONE HOPE of your calling; one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM” (Eph. 4:4,5).
If a person could lose his salvation and get saved again, that would make TWO baptisms, not just one. The Bible does not talk about a second, third or fourth baptism in dealing with salvation. It says that there is only ONE.
“For by one Spirit are we ALL baptized into ONE body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into ONE SPIRIT” (I Cor. 12:13).
ALL BELIEVERS ARE SAVED BY HIS LIFE,
NOT BY A GOOD LIFE OF THEIR OWN
“For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be SAVED BY HIS LIFE” (Rom. 5:10).
THE BELIEVER IS JUSTIFIED BY CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS AND NOT BY HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS
Righteousness is given as a free gift and not something that we earn.
“…Even so by the righteousness of one THE FREE GIFT came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous” (Rom. 5:18-19).
THE BELIEVER IS CALLED, JUSTIFIED AND GLORIFIED
“Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also CALLED: and whom he called, them he also JUSTIFIED: and whom he justified, them he also GLORIFIED” (Rom. 8:30).
THE BELIEVER IS PREDESTINATED TO BE LIKE CHRIST
Predestination means to appoint or ordain beforehand by an UNCHANGEABLE PURPOSE.
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON…” (Rom. 8:29).
