Assurance Can Be Lost
Friday, April 04, 2014
Assurance of salvation may come and go and come
again in the heart of believers. But the opinion of the
believer does not alter the work of God. God cares not for the
thoughts of men. God does what He has said He will do.
Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so
soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto
Galatians 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble
you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ
It is possible to remove oneself from the Gospel of
grace to another perverted Gospel. This indeed would be sin.
But when this same person was saved by Jesus Christ,
all of his sin's were forgiven, even this one. Even though his
assurance for eternal life has disappeared, that same eternal life
has remained eternal.
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the
liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled
again with the yoke of bondage.
So, instead of sliding off into another Gospel,
which is not a Gospel, stand without wavering. Stand in the
freedom of the broken bondage of the law. Stand in the Liberty
of assurance that Jesus was your Saviour before you knew Him.
He is your Saviour now. He will be your Saviour through
Therefore assurance may come and go with the
carelessness of its owner. But salvation is kept by its owner,
