"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio


Summary: Once Saved - Always Saved? This message exposes the answer to a question often debated by many believers. A-MUST-READ ! ! !



The subject of "Eternal Salvation" came up around me this past week at work.

There’s seems to be great discussion of if there is such a thing.

And I thought it to be a much needful subject for now.

Well the question is, "What does the Bible say?"

I intend on using a variety of verses on this subject.

So I will not give one particular verse for my text as of yet. I want us to look at many.


Some say YES and some say NO.

In seeking for an answer one must look in the right place. "The Book"

Not only are we to look at the Bible, but at the entire Bible.

One to begin with would be Philippians 1:6

(6) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

The apostle Paul here is trying to encourage the Philippians.

Paul was telling the Philippians that Jesus was capable of doing his part.

He was trying to build them up.

He wanted them to know that they had hope for their future.

Paul wanted the Philippians to know just this.

Christ will do his part.

I want to say , "If You Are Saved," Jesus said you would live with him forever!

"If You Are Saved."

Let us now look at another verse.

2nd Thessalonians 3:3

(3) But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

I believe this!.

If God said it, he can do it.

I believe Philippians 1:6

(6) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Another great scripture of promise that I believe Jude 1:24

(24) Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

All Great scriptures!

All of which I believe!

They are all Great promises from God!

But are these promises unconditional ones?


Owning your own car is conditional - miss a couple of payments and see what happens

Owning your own home is conditional - try not paying the taxes

Those not paying taxes are conditional - But I’m not quiet ready for "Resthaven Cemetery"

There are many promises that are ours, but most are conditional!

· Just because we are riding in a car today doesn’t mean we won’t be peddling a bike tomorrow

· Just because we have a piece of paper saying that we own our house it can be taken away

If we do not keep up our end these things can & will be taken away!

Salvation too is conditional!

If we look at the entire Bible, we will find that God will help us overcome the evil one.

But we must also do our part and "remain faithful until death" if we are to be saved.

1st Chronicles 28:9

(9) And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

Here, David was near the end of his life.

And he wanted to warn his son of losing his salvation.

By warning him, David shows that he only wanted the best for his son Solomon.

David was saying, "Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a loyal heart and with a willing mind; for the Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever."

Another scripture says; 2nd Chronicles 15:2

(2) And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; the Lord is with you, while ye be with Him; and if ye seek Him, He will be found of you; but if ye forsake Him, He will forsake you.

What do these scriptures mean?

Some say that God was just warning these two Kings of taking their Kingdom.

Well, in King Asa that is open for argument.

But with Solomon, it seems certain that God was speaking about more than just his being a King.

Just being esteemed as a "somebody" here on this earth won’t get you into heaven.

· Being the Town Mayor is looked at as pretty significant by many
