I want to say something peeps....I have been told by people that my name could be blotted out and I CAN lose my salvation.This became a heated topic recently with me.Although I do not ruffle easily I took a strong stand because it was being spewed to younger Christians and my teenage son was standing there...Here is my understanding.The "book of life" and the "Lamb's book of life" are two different books. The book of life contains the names of all mankind. The Lamb's book of life contains the names of only the redeemed. While unbelievers can be blotted out of the book of life, the redeemed can never be blotted out of the Lamb's book of life.This is my 100% understanding!!Satan can try to jab at ya and make you doubt...He is the father of lies!!And if you read in the Bible it does say "The Books" were opened.
I believe, and correct me anyone if I am wrong,You can be saved...get caught up in the world and if you TRULY had called on Jesus in the past,die and still be in Heaven....What you lose is your rewards...Please read verse below...
"For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one's work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one's work, of what sort it is. If anyone's work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire" (1 Cor. 3:11-15). To me you can be saved and not storing up riches in Heaven...We all go thru dry seasons but God is still there...
I have had people tell me if I said a curse word,died before I asked for forgiveness i would go to Hell...My soul does not adhere to that at all....Fact is we will all have unrepented sin in our life when we stand at the throne...But Jesus' blood covers all...ALL!!
I have also had people tell me,"well I can get saved and do what I want!"If you truly get saved you will not want to do the things that you used to do and love because they are of this world.Will you struggle with some issues?Yes!But..You will change...will you still mess up? Yeah!!I do it everyday!!
I think we all will be shocked at some that are standing there with us...maybe their life never showed any signs,maybe they called on the Lord in their last hour...We may be shocked at some who are NOT standing there...Put your trust in Jesus and not what people tell ya...people are wrong...ALOT!!Pray,seek Him,read your Bible.The thing that gets me is all of this is coming from the Church....why is the body so mixed up on what I feel are key issues/When I hear something in Church that does not sit well with me,I pray and study that subject until I get peace about it.We all should."Stuff" is creeping into our churches...Seek truth.Pray.
