I Don’t Know If I Am Really Saved

[Bible Question] …The question about salvation keeps popping up in my mind. I don’t know if I am really saved. I am so confused about all the false doctrine I received over the years that I don’t know what’s right anymore.  Where do I start?

We Can KNOW We Are Saved NOW

[Bible Answer] Greetings in Jesus’ name. There are various ways a person can know he is saved in the present time. Here are the main checkpoints:set free from sin addictions

  • Are you set free from all sin addictions NOW because of a faith in Jesus – one that follows and serves God? (Rom. 6:22; 1 John 2:3,4)
  • Is the focus and TRUST for your salvation the Lord JESUS and him alone? (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:12)* Are you righteously different than others? (1 John 3:7,8)
  • Are you living HOLY now? (Heb. 12:14; 1 John 3:10)
  • Are there any verses which would condemn you such as Mt. 5:28,29; 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Eph. 5:5-7; Rev. 21:8; etc.
  • Do you have LOVE IN YOUR HEART for Christians.

We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death. (1 John 3:14)

  • Do the unredeemed people around you hate you because of your faith in JESUS?

All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Mat 10:22)

If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. (John 15:19)

  • The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children (Rom 8:16).  Though this is true it seems the devil can cause confusion with this, unless a person is firmly grounded in Scripture.

The Righteous Can Die Spiritually

Because the righteous can die spiritually after getting born again, you must guard your heart and keep yourself pure. Many who do get saved, afterwards fall away. You must endure hatred to the end to be saved [enter God’s kingdom], Mt. 10:22; Heb. 3:14; Rev. 2:10,11. It seems that the so-called church of our day has been gutted of truth and it has been replaced with a super flood of false teaching! Jesus warned there would be many false prophets. YOU must get in the Bible directly and learn its message for yourself. Until you do you will not know what to believe, which could be spiritually fatal. Do NOT merely listen to TV and radio teachers, because there are so many conflicting doctrines. ONLY the Bible is 100% TRUTH.

Remember also God gives grace [favor] to the HUMBLE. Humbly and sincerely go to God repentantly and ask him for mercy and forgiveness to follow him in this sin-loving, truth-hating world. Draw near to him and he’ll draw near to you. Hopefully, this answers your question.

What Did Jesus Look Like

Most people have a mental image of what the Lord Jesus looks like from pictures and movies, but the truth is, no one knows! We only have vague references in Scripture to his facial appearance, such as the following one:

He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. (Isa 53:2)

Jesus was less than stunningly handsome, according to that! carnal christian demon faith(The reason is so people would be drawn to the Lord Jesus, who has the words of eternal life (John 6:68) over TRUTH, not over his physical appearance.) Another small detail about Jesus is that he had a beard, as was typical in that day and culture. Men had beards as is shown all through the Bible. The following verse has been applied to the Lord Jesus and fits how he was treated before his crucifixion:

I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting. (Isa 50:6)

A Man of Sorrows

The Lord Jesus was also a man of sorrows:

He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. (Isa 53:3)

That means Jesus was not walking around smiling and laughing as he has been wrongly portrayed in some Jesus movies! But remember, his physical characteristics are trivial to his message and his mission for mankind!  Jesus has done so much for our salvation, redemption and everything else spiritually, he has over 100 titles and name which reflect who is Jesus Christ.

Jesus Looked Much Different In John’s Vision

The Apostle John had a vision of the glorified Lord Jesus and he appeared much different than he did while on earth:

And among the lampstands was someone “like a son of man,” dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. (Rev 1:13-16)

Later in Revelation, Jesus appeared in John’s vision as a slain lamb (Rev. 5:6).

Long Hair For A Man Is a Disgrace

Since Paul wrote that long hair is a disgrace for a man, we can also assume that Jesus never had long hair:

Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.  (1 Cor 11:14,15)

Shroud of Turin

Some have said the image of the man of the Shroud of Turin is the Lord Jesus after his crucifixion. If that is true or not, it should have absolutely NO effect on the Christian. With the Bible, we have final authority and all God wanted us to have for guidance, etc. for our earthly life. We don’t need to consult any outside source for any spiritual reason, and we certainly don’t need to have the details about what Jesus looked like when he walked the earth! What we need to know is what does God want from us and then do it. Among other things he commands all people everywhere to REPENT (Acts 17:30), for it is not God’s will that anyone should perish (2 Pet. 3:9).

You Can’t See God’s FACE and Live

An unusual fact about God is that, in these corruptible bodies of ours, we can’t see God’s face and continue to live physically, according to what God told Moses. BTW, MOSES was unlike others. God spoke to him “face to face” (and not in visions or dreams like others), probably because he was so HUMBLE, but he still never saw God’s actual face. YHWH told Moses the following:

“But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.” Then the LORD said, “There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen.” (Exo 33:20-23)

That detail is important to know too when trying to understand the invisible God as well as evaluating alleged authoritative visions from God. Did you know that in Mormonism Joseph Smith Jr. claims to have had at least one vision (the so-called “First Vision”) which included both the Father and Son. Just on that basis, one should be suspicious about Joseph Smith, but the rest of the story, especially in light of the MORMON DOCTRINES is more than enough to reveal the spiritual darkness and grave errors associated with the Latter Day Saints. [The Fatima apparitions make a similar claim about the Father as Lucia said she saw the Father!]

Overcomers ONLY Will See God’s Face

Many are the wonderful and thrilling things awaiting the overcomers. That even includes seeing God’s face!

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. (Rev 22:3,4)

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.  (Mat 5:8)

Imagine, the multitudes who die in their sins and go to hell will never see God’s face! Only the overcomers (the pure in heart) will have that privilege. Furthermore, please note according to the above passage, Mary is NOT on the throne as Queen of heaven ruling with Jesus! It is NOT Mother and Son, but Father and Son. [Did you know the official teaching of Catholicism does NOT have the Father on his throne! One might wonder, did their fabricated Mary dethrone God?]

One final point from Rev. 22:3,4 which shows the devil is a copycat! The overcomers will have God’s name on their foreheads, in contrast to the people who take the mark of the beast on their right hand or forehead (Rev. 13:16,17) and go to the lake of burning sulfur (Rev. 14:9-12).

The KJB Only MYTH and Chief Argument

IF the proponents of the KJB only camp would learn to critically think, the whole nonsensical and mean-spirited, condemning KJB (or KJV) movement would rapidly disintegrate! In fact, one doesn’t even have to do much serious testing of the KJV arguments and claims to reasonably reject the King James version of the bible, because it is both incomprehensible and deceptive. This should quickly become apparent to anyone reading the KJV. How people can read it, then insist they can understand what it is saying is to be deceitful. It is an archaic language of its own — one of the past — just like reading Shakespeare, which is now much outdated! The English language has changed over the centuries (and still is) and now many KJB words no longer mean what they did in 1611.

KJV Onlyism Hurts

king james onlyReading the KJV is a stumbling block and snare to God’s people, for we MUST learn what the truth is. Since only the Bible is final spiritual authority (2 Tim. 3:16,17) for a Christian to focus his exclusive attention to such an incomprehensible translation is to do so to his own detriment. Our salvation is in dire jeopardy until we firmly learn the message of the Bible, especially the New Testament! Without question, the KJV will surely blur and severely hinder that from happening. I speak from MUCH experience and say these things after careful thought. Especially new converts are much better off reading a modern reputable translation or several rather than the KJB.

The Feeble Chief Argument For KJB Onlyism

The KJV onlyites have made many devotees over the years with their weak arguments and propaganda (and Gail Riplinger LIES). Their chief argument has been to attack the New International Version and its supposed “missing words” to prove their KJV only belief, but such is both illogical and based on a mere assumption! SADLY the KJV only proponents have apparently never noticed such to their own harm and the harm of those they care about! Let me elaborate.

The Car Analogy

If I staunchly believed in driving ONLY HONDAS and condemned all other cars throughout the world by attacking Chevys, could such an attack logically prove Hondas are superior to ALL cars in the world? Never! It is absurd to believe it would. That is true even IF the evidence against Chevys was sound and not based on an assumption that the Hondas are superior, but even more flawed if the attacks are not valid. Such allegations, if true, would only prove that Chevys are not good cars to drive, but says nothing about all other cars throughout the world. Furthermore, IF we compared Chevys to Hondas and noticed Chevys were missing some of the necessary parts found in Hondas, it would be a mere assumption to condemn the Chevys just based on that, for perhaps those “necessary parts” are not valid in ascertaining a superior car! That is very similar to what KJV Onlyism has done to the harm of multitudes of Christians. KJV Onlyism is proof that many professing Christians of our hour have never learned to critically think and are easily swayed to believe something that is obviously wrong and irrational. To fallaciously claim even a 10 year old can understand the KJV when the adult readers themselves can’t is deceitful!

Dear reader, take NO CHANCE with your soul. READ REPUTABLE MODERN TRANSLATIONS SO YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD WANTS FROM YOU. It is your ETERNITY which is on the line with this issue of GOD’S TRUTH. Don’t allow the KJV proponents bully you away from understanding Scripture.

I Was Saved Again and Instantly Delivered from My Sin Addictions

[Personal Testimony of Backslider] I want to thank you [Evangelical Outreach] for all of your wonderfully thorough teachings focused on providing a comprehensive refutation to the dangerous false doctrine of eternal security [also known as OSAS and The Perseverance of the Saints in ostensibly Calvinistic circles] and I want to share a bit of my story with you.false teachers A while back; I went through an agonizing break- up which ended my ebullience for God [including a great passion for scripture- I have a great breadth of theological and scriptural knowledge] and caused me to lose my salvation. Soon after, I experienced tortuous suicidal thoughts and an indefatigable proclivity to self-hatred. In the midst of all this, I was all committing a whole host of other sins as well including a horrible problem with lust; [Matthew 5:27-28]; which therefore made me an adulterer and thus guilty of sexual immorality according to 1 Cor 6:9-11, Gal 5:16-25, Eph 5:1-7, 1 Thess 4:3-8; Rev 21:6-8, Rev 22:15, etc. However, a miracle  occurred much earlier this year when my time as a backslider came to end and I was saved again. I was instantly delivered from my sin addictions [Romans 6:19-23]; became fully sold out and committed to following the Lord Jesus and doing his will [Matthew 16:24-27]; experienced a radical change and became a new creation inChrist [2 Cor 5:17] and I have received peace and rest for my soul by going to the Lord Jesus [Matthew 11:28-30]. I am making every effort [Luke 13:22-24, Hebrews 12:14-17; etc] to enter through God’s kingdom door; and striving to keep myself pure [1 Timothy 4:15-16; 1 Timothy 5:22, etc] so that I can enter in after my physical death. Your website and teachings have been instrumental in keeping me on the right path after my return to salvation. Your ministry is one of very few that I fully trust. Truth be told, there is so much false teaching out there these days; even from people who purport to teach holiness and to reject OSAS!

For example: I recently had an e- mail exchange with a man who rejects OSAS; but denies that salvation can be lost through sin. Instead, he believes sin can only be lost if one chooses to disown Jesus or apostatize from the Christian faith. Although
disowning Jesus will certainly cause one to lose his or her salvation [Matthew
10:32-33; 2 Timothy 2:12, etc]; to deny that sin can also [in certain cases immediately, and other cases much more gradually] is to pervert God’s grace into a license for immorality [which we are commanded to contend against in Jude 3-4 among various other places in scripture]; and to make one guilty of disseminating another gospel according to 1 Cor 15:1-2; Gal 1:6-9, 2 Jn 8-9, etc. Therefore, even if he was once saved; he is now lost again for teaching and believing another gospel. This is a supposedly Bible College/Seminary- educated man; which only makes me fear for the poor spiritual state of our institutions of theological learning today, including [but obviously not limited to] the ones that say they reject the false teaching of eternal security!

Thank you for helping me to know the truth and to act upon it for my soul’s sake
[James 1:21- 25, etc]; and I ask that you would continue to pray for my spiritual
well-being and growth. And long may your mighty ministry of soul- winning and no-nonsense holiness preaching continue. God bless you. Remember Hebrews 3:7-15.

[Bible Answer] Dear Brother ___, your gracious testimony and kind words made our hearts leap for joy! It was very kind of you to share what happened and your sound bible-based beliefs. (Many ministry friends don’t tell us how we have helped them.) Your renewed freedom from sin’s addiction and slavery and radical change to holiness are WONDERFUL! THANK YOU JESUS. We rejoice with you. The real gospel still works when a person sincerely and humbly accepts it to repent and serve God.

The intensity of our spiritual warfare is great and the casualties are greater! Many are back on the road to hell again, but think they are irrevocably bound for heaven because of the demonic LIE of eternal security. We were just talking with a staunch OSAS proponent yesterday who thinks there are Christian heroin junkies, but that goes with that license for sin doctrine, as you know.

It was also great to read that you have observed the nonsense and poison coming from many so-called holiness preachers of our day and those who say they reject once saved always saved! In that regard, Charles Finney was NOT nearly as sound as what many have been told about him. Also, David Wilkerson doctrinally apostatized in his latter years and left his church to Carter Conlon, an eternal security teacher! SHOCKING AND HORRIBLE, but they continue to be exalted! Our days are dark and our hearts especially go out to new converts, who need fed and warned of the many spiritual dangers around.

We will pray for you and send you holy hugs in Jesus. Please remember, the devil’s single goal for you is to damn you to hell! Take no chances with your soul. Also, never forget that you have the best this life can offer BECAUSE YOU HAVE JESUS, who is eternal life (1 John 1:2).

Baptist Pastor Juan D. McFarland and His UNgodly Fruit

Jesus taught we can know a person by his fruit. If we examine the life of Baptist Pastor Juan D. McFarland of Alabama, false teachershis bad fruit reflects our shameful apostate hour and the unqualified spiritual leadership in spiritual positions of power and influence. The most important position of influence is a position of influence over SOULS. All pastors, evangelists, missionaries and ministers of various types have such influence to some degree, yet the VAST MAJORITY are not qualified and are therefore tools of the devil. Juan D. McFarland is just one sad example of a shameful spiritual stumbling block:

Sexually Immoral Baptist Pastor, Drug Addict and Thief

A pastor shocked his Montgomery, Ala., congregation and the entire community with the admission that he had sex with female church members while knowing that he had AIDS…. “He was on marijuana, cocaine and all the drugs you can think of,” Williams said. “Those are his words.” Williams said that McFarland also acknowledged that he had used money given to him for conventions on having “a good time.” According to WSFA-TV in Montgomery, after the Sept. 14 announcement, McFarland confirmed everything he shared with the congregation, including sex with parishioners, the drug use and the mishandling of church money. WSFA reports that McFarland was removed as pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday …. Church leaders initiated a vote to have McFarland removed as pastor, Williams said. The vote was 80 to two in favor of removal, he said. Williams said since the vote, McFarland has changed the locks on the church and changed the church’s bank account, leaving other church leaders without access. Church leaders are consulting with lawyers and the bank to figure out a solution, he said. ( http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/10/09/pastor-with-aids-admits-sex-with-church-members/16996323/ )

Scandals like that with Juan D. McFarland continue on in one fashion or another, but always to the hurt and shame of Christianity as a whole, even though McFarland is a child of the devil. Christianity is the truth. It has the one and only gospel to save souls from damnation (Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:12; etc.). That gospel of grace sets the repentant instantly free from their sin addictions (Rom. 6:22), but if a person like Juan D. McFarland is in a position of power over souls, he will do much more spiritual damage by his example than if he never professed salvation to begin with.

I can only wonder how the damnable heresy of eternal security might have adversely affected McFarland’s behavior and spiritual condition since it is so prevalent among Baptists. Of course, the Baptist doctrine of once saved always saved will say he remains a Christian now even while unrepentant, if he was ever saved at any point. Charles Stanley would boldly affirm that. Such false teachers believe there are Christian drug addicts, Christian thieves, Christian adulterers, etc. proving that this dogma is a license to sin taught under grace. In fact, just yesterday I spoke to a professing Christian who is an OSAS proponent and Charles Stanley devotee, who believes there are Christian heroin junkies!

TESTIMONY: I Thought Eternal Security Kept Me Safe As An Occasional Drunkard

Those that think going to church is the essence and epitome of the Christian life need to rethink their view! Without question, it was to one’s great DISADVANTAGE AND HARM to go the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church when pastor Juan D. McFarland was sowing to the flesh (Gal. 6:8,9), especially if one was a woman who caught the eye of McFarland. Besides the women who got HIV from him, the harm done in that congregation alone is incalculable! How the devil loves servants like McFarland. Too bad he isn’t the only one like that! Press on saints. Keep your eyes on JESUS, the King.

The Fearful Side of Heaven

Holy Writ teaches a two-sided God, that is, one with great mercy and kindness forriver of fire the humble repentant, while the same holy creator God will vent his intense wrath, anger and sternness on those who die in their sins:

For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off. (Rom 11:21,22)

God will give to each person according to what he has done. To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace forriver of fire from God's throne everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. (Rom 2:6-10)

A conditional salvation is clearly taught with a present tense behavior revealing the child of God from the child of the devil (1 John 3:10). But that is also shown in another way which is most stirring — in a way which many church goers have never heard! There are both a river of fire and a river of the water of life flowing from God’s throne!

A River of Fire Flowing From The Throne of The Ancient of Days

Only once is the following revealed in the entire Bible! It’s a side of God and heaven which is foreign to the majority!

As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. (Dan 7:9-11)

The River of The Water of Life Flowing From The Throne of God and of the Lamb

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. (Rev 22:1,2)

The Daniel 7:9-11 passage proves end time truth is found in the book of Daniel, as it is in Revelation. NOTE: Dan 7:11 shows the beast (or antichrist) will be thrown into the blazing fire which comes from God’s throne. In Rev 19:20 the false prophet and antichrist will be thrown into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The logical deduction is, the source of the fiery lake of burning sulfur is the throne of God. The river of fire flows from it until it becomes the dreaded lake of burning sulfur. [1,000+ years after the antichrist and false prophet are thrown into the lake of fire, they are still being tormented there and have not been annihilated (Rev. 19:20 cf. 20:10).]

From the same omnipotent throne will gush the river of the water of life. Its water is crystal clear and will nourish the tree of life. The overcomers will eat its fruit and leaves. Again, the creator God is shown to be the source of all things, including the kinds of rivers flowing from his holy throne!

A Chilling Encounter With The Spiritually Blind

Recently my wife and I had a chilling encounter with a Baptist’s minister’s wife. After she received our heaven/hell gospel tract and mentioned who she was, I asked if she believed in once saved always saved. She responded, NO. spiritual blindnessThat was sweet music to our ears, but it didn’t last long as she also mentioned she was a backslider. I told her, since that was the case, she is on the road to hell and she agreed. She knew she was no longer a Christian. The chilling part was that she had NO apparent fear of God or concern about going to hell. None! It was absolutely stunning. I have encountered others in the past, who told me they knew they were going to hell, but this woman seemed much worse. She smiled as though she was having her picture taken as she said she knew she was going to hell. Imagine that! I tried reasoning with her about her desperate need for forgiveness and salvation. When I told her that hell was forever and there is weeping and gnashing of teeth there, it temporarily seemed to grab her attention, but it was short lived:

The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  (Mat 13:41,42)

She shrugged off the reality of her greatest need — salvation. She was in the greatest danger, earnestly warned about that danger yet she appeared to be unmoved in the slightest way! It was like her heart was a piece of hardened steel! It was chilling to talk with such a person!

Spiritual Blindness

Spiritual blindness comes in various degrees and hers was great. One can only read about Solomon’s dead and lost condition as an idolater and attempted murderer in his latter years. There is NO evidence he ever returned to God after he turned away! It isn’t always like that, though. Some return to salvation like King David and the prodigal, but many don’t. May this be a warning to all of the God fearing. Be very careful and walk guarded. Sin will harden and deceive your heart, if you serve it. It will be like being on a drug which dulls your senses and confuses your mind. Don’t think you can just go and sin, then simply ask God for forgiveness and everything will be the same. Backsliders can get saved again, but sin leaves scars and destroyed lives. Of course the tempter will never tell you these things as he trying to get you into spiritual death.

BTW, her husband — that Baptist minister — is disqualified from being in spiritual leadership because his wife is in such a pathetic spiritual condition (1 Tim. 3:11).  I can only imagine trying to have a serious Bible study with a person like that. Her wickedness could easily adversely affect others sincerely seeking God. That is why we read verses like 1 Cor. 5:13 dealing with church discipline and “a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough” (1 Cor 5:6). Saints, take warning. Keep yourself pure.
