Knowledge of Eternal Life is great Assurance

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."

All have within them God's witness (record) that Jesus is the Savior.  To ignore that witness is to tell God that He is not believable.


Believing the Record
Assurance of salvation is in the fact of believing the "record" of God.  That record is 2 fold. 

At Salvation - When we believe the record we are saved, and there is great assurance
* having seen God promise to save
* then actually saving

After Salvation - When we believe His record for a life with Him on this earth, we are assured again, because He actually begins to work in our natural lives.

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."

The record shows that believers have eternal life, non-believers do not.


Eternal Life
Saints are assured by knowing they have eternal life
* not part time life
* not temporary life
Eternal life that will last for an eternity.


Knowing Eternal Life
When the saints begin to believe the record of God, they begin to gain assurance of their salvation and are able to begin to reply to every rebuttal.

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."

John wrote so that the saints can know that they have eternal life.  Confidently trust in what John has written, and you will see the assurance in knowing that you are saved.
