Of junk and fake grace (21)

What about eternal salvation? The phrase eternal salvation occurs in only one place in the bible. Hebrews 5:9. It reads in the KJV: Heb 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; we have eternal redemption as a phrase occurring also once in the same book of Hebrews 9:12: Heb_9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. I want you to note that the phrase “for us” in that last verse did not appear in the original greek, it was added by the translator. SO he obtained eternal redemption as in he is different from the previous high priests who have to year by year go and offer sacrifices. with one sacrifice, Jesus sorted everything that has to do with sin out and that will eternally be a reference point. But what about eternal salvation which occurred only in one place in the bible. the bible says that Jesus became the author of eternal salvation to them that obey him. The word author is the greek: aitios; and it means someone who makes something possible which would otherwise have been impossible, non-existent. that word occurred only in one place in the new testament. Now to “obey” used here is the greek hupakouo (pronounce it any way you like, who will arrest you?). and it means submission as to a Lord. It is the same greek word used in ” and the sea obeys him” when Jesus stilled the storm on the sea. The same in Matthew 1:27 when they said evil spirit obey him; and when Paul wrote that children obey your parents, it is the same word. Also, servants obey your masters (col 3). Also what Peter used when he wrote: even as Sarah OBEYED Abraham calling him Lord. If you are looking for where that word was used in the same book of Hebrews see Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, OBEYED; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Yes, I believe in eternal salvation. If I don’t believe it, it means I don’t believe in the bible, since it is written there. But I don’t believe in the re-definition of salvation with the absence of an obedient life to the Word of God. So if you want to preach eternal salvation and you do not include that it is for those who obey Christ and you just limit obedience to an event in the past, e.g. answering an altar call, then you are a junk and fake grace exponent. Shalom.

oSme people were actually charged in the bible to continue in the grace of God. Grace is a journey, not an event. Is a person not an idea. To continue means It should be my guiding principle, I should not let go of grace (Acts 13:43), but that grace is the all-encompassing grace and not a one-sided grace. You cannot continue in grace and continue in sin at the same time, as Paul asked: shall we continue in sin so that grace may abound.
Jude warned of days like this:

Jud 1:3 Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.
Jud 1:4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, WHO PERVERT THE GRACE OF GOD into sensuality and deny our only MASTER AND LORD, Jesus Christ.
The Don’t deny him overtly otherwise there will be no need for us to be warned against them. The ways they deny him is stated in the verses that followed. The fool says in his heart there is no God is reflected in the lifestyle according to Psalm 14:1.
