You can know that you are saved, you can have that blessed assurance of salvation. How do you know if you are saved? –
Accept Christ alone by Faith and not by dependence upon any other thing (works or signs).
- 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.”
Believing ON the Son of God is what saves, just believing in God and Christ will not save you. But putting your faith, trust, and full believing heart ON Christ as your Saviour is different than just a basic believing understanding.
- James 2:19) “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.“
Because many believe IN Christ but not all have believed ON Christ. I’ll explain –
- Acts 16:31) “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.“
The head knowledge VS heart knowledge is the biggest issue of the world today. It is because of this that “many in that day will cry out Lord Lord!” but He will say “Depart from me I never knew you“. This is because they were depending on their head knowledge, and they did not accept and believe in Him as their God, Saviour, and Redeemer.
You can believe IN many things, but putting your faith, trust, and belief upon the Lord Jesus Christ is a complete different thing. Salvation doesn’t come from deciding to follow Christ, it comes from a full repentance of sins and accepting Him as your Lord and Saviour. If this is not done then that soul is still in darkness and is deceived into thinking they are secure when they’re not.
Knowledge of God, the Cross, the Gospel, or going to church and reading the Bible will not save a person. Only repentance and accepting Christ Jesus who is God can.
Jesus said –
- 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. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.“
When you get saved the Lord sends His Holy Spirit unto you and He Seals you by the Spirit of Promise, the Holy Ghost.
Jesus said –
- John 14:16) “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;“
- Ephesians 4:30) “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.“
Jesus said –
John 14:26) “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.“
Paul said –
- Romans 8:38-39) “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.“
