Blessed Assurance – 25 Biblical Reasons You Can’t Lose Salvation

The Doctrine of Eternal Security

It is a wonderful thing to be a Christian!  I’m so glad that I have come to saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and placed my faith in Him for the forgiveness of sin and the salvation of my soul!  The Bible warns us repeatedly that satan would try to infiltrate the church through false doctrine and foolish heresies.  We must be on guard.

Blessed Assurance - Eternal Security

Christianity is being polluted and diluted by many unbiblical ideas.  False Doctrine is infiltrating Christianity at an alarming rate.  False Teachers and unbiblical philosophies are being accepted by many.  Some groups that were considered cults from their beginning have now been included into “Christianity”.  Every doctrine and idea must be compared to Scripture.  It is our sole authority for faith and practice.

One of the oldest false doctrines is the idea that once you are saved by faith in Jesus, you can be unsaved; once you are forgiven, you can be unforgiven.  It teaches that you are not secure in salvation until you reach Heaven.  This false doctrine causes a lot of damage to the cause of Christ.  The Bible teaches us God wants us to know that we have eternal life.

What about the verses that make it sound like you can lose your salvation?  There are some and these should be studied thoroughly.  There are great gems of truth in these verses once studied that will help you.  However, after years of study I do not know of one verse in Scripture that teaches the loss of salvation.  One of the laws of Bible study is that you don’t use an obscure verse to override an obvious verse.  If you ever have been saved, you always will be saved.  You didn’t save yourself and you can’t lose yourself.   The question is have you been truly born again?  Only you and God know for sure.

The security of the believer is a wonderful truth.  It is not a license to sin, but an overwhelming reason to live for God. You can live in confidence knowing that you are saved and spend your life telling others about your wonderful Savior.

Here are 25 Biblical reasons you can’t lose your salvation:

The Bible Says you can KNOW that you have eternal life.

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.

God tells the truth and keeps His promises.

Titus 1:2  In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Belief births you into God’s family.

John 1:12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Jesus promised you would not perish.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You are not condemned (reserved for destruction).

John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

You currently have everlasting life.

John 3:36  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

You passed from death unto life.

John 5:24  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Jesus will not cast you out for any reason.

John 6:37  All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Jesus knows His sheep.

John 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

Jesus gave you eternal life.

John 10:28  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

You are in Jesus’ hand and no one can get you out.

John 10:28b  neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

The Father placed His hand over the Son’s and no one is more powerful than Him.

John 10:29  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

The combined strength of God the Father and God the Son is protecting your soul.

John 10:30  I and my Father are one.

Jesus promised that you would never die.

John 11:25–26  Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

God is your Father.

Romans 8:15  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

You are two-fold the Child of God; by birth and by adoption.

Romans 8:15  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit reminding us that we are saved.

Romans 8:16  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

God is the Judge of the soul and He already gave you His verdict.

Romans 8:31–33  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

Jesus Christ is at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us.

Romans 8:34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Nothing can separate you from the love of Christ.

Romans 8:35–39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You are a new Creature.

2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

You are made righteous in Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

You are sealed with the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 1:13–14  In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

You are saved by grace through faith not by works.

Ephesians 2:8–9  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

You are kept by the power of God.

1 Peter 1:5  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

You are a citizen of Heaven.

Philippians 3:20  For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

You are seated in Heavenly places.
