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