John 6:50  "This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die."

Below is a paraphrase of the above verse:

John 6.50  "This is the bread which (continuously, ever) cometh from heaven, that a man may eat (once, one time) thereof and not die.

Notice that the Lord is continually coming, but we only have to eat once in order to not die (second death, Rev. 21.8, go to lake of fire).

If we only eat (believe, the context of the whole passage indicates that eating is believing) once, to have eternal life, then we can be assured of our not losing it, because we are not to eat again and again.

Eat once, believe once!

There are many other examples from Greek Grammar in the Word of God.
