Satanic Deception on the Allegory of the Vine and Branches

There is an OSAS rendering of the allegory of the Vine and the branches that could just as easily come straight from the serpent’s mouth .  Lie begets lie !

The Vine and the Branches
The Vine and the Branches

What kind of Satanic poison can we find in this false rendering when we shine the Word of God through it ?  Are there any inclusions in this devilish gem ! ?  You better believe it !!!

A Quick Proof that Losing Salvation is Possible

Almost Losing Salvation
At end of salvation’s rope

UPDATED ONCE MORE !

For those Christians who believe that losing salvation is impossible , consider this :  If a Christian cannot use their free will to quit their faith , then remaining a Christian is compulsory upon conversion . The free will would cease to exist .  If that is so, then how can one be accountable for any sin ?  There are even Christians who believe that they can no longer really sin .  They point to the following scripture :

Nearly Losing Salvation : Warning to the Misinformed

I Think I Lost My Salvation

Nearly Losing Salvation :  Fear of the Lord Preferable to the Terror of the Lord

Spring, 2015

I have a responsibility to tell this if any would listen. I have no right not to try . First, let me say that Jesus is my Lord and Savior . That He is my God and that I am of the born – again, evangelical Christian faith , indwelt by the Holy Spirit . But not with so much of His Presence as I once had . For I have damaged that fine and wonderful state. Happily , I am being restored after several horrifying months , nearly losing salvation .

Salvation’s last thread

The Irrelevance of Common OSAS Rationales

UPDATED !

 

What Kind of Living Stone Are You ?
What Kind of a Living Stone Are You ?

Today I continue the contrast of OSAS / Once Saved, Always Saved / eternal security with the scriptural truth of Conditional Security dependent upon responsible exercise of free will .  This post likely to be expanded and refined, perhaps with a ” Part Two . ”

We begin with 1 Peter 2 : 1 – 5 :

The Living Stone and the Holy Nation

  ” Therefore put away all wickedness, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking. As newborn babies, desire the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow, if it is true that you have experienced that the Lord is good.

Coming to Him as to a living stone who is rejected by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up into a spiritual house as a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. “

—————————————————————————————————————————————

I was an ignorant and offended , double – minded type of living stone .  Four months of horror with one leg thrown over the figurative rim of hell fixed all of that for me !  And it gave me the motivation to protect my brothers and sisters , preserve my Father’s children , and dig in scripture as never before , keen to pick up on what God was showing me …  that common OSAS rationales simply do not address the issue of Hamartiology – study of sin –  that accounts for Saints losing salvation .  Hard to know for living stones that keep skimming the surface of the Word ; or those motivated NOT  to see ; deceived by false doctrine, inattentive , un – circumspect or not balancing the whole counsel of God.

When Satan Comes to You with O.S.A.S.

Satan quotes some scripture , too .

Satan Promotes OSAS Deception
When Satan Deals the Word

The perilous times we live in include the peril of satanic attack via the misuse of the Word of God . The selective , short – sampling of scripture can defeat proper circumspection and proper balance of the whole counsel of God .  Satan uses this type of attack to contribute vastly to the Great Falling Away .  Earlier this week , I was at church , and Pastor was preaching straightness from Matthew  4 . And Holy Spirit was surfing on the message right then, more than Pastor knew at the time … Continue reading “When Satan Comes to You with O.S.A.S.”

OSAS Train Wreck on a Popular Rapture Website

The OSAS Train Wreck
The OSAS Train Wreck

Recently, there have been a couple posts at a popular rapture website that show the degree of OSAS blindness and deafness to the circumspect, balanced view of the word . This is a doctrinal train wreck that imperils vulnerable saints .  My comments are highlighted in  brackets .  God, please shield and protect my vulnerable brothers and sisters from the evil one in Jesus’ name I pray …  for the devil certainly does not fight fair .

Losing Salvation and the Admonition of James 5 : 19 – 20

Admonition against Ignorance
Walking in Ignorance of the Word

There is an admonition in James chapter 5 that leaves me wondering how anyone could think that OSAS is true .  We must balance scripture and rightly divide the Word !  In looking at scriptures that guarantee salvation versus scriptures that warn of losing salvation , the balance point is the God – given , free human will .

Judging Another’s Salvation on Twitter Vs. Losing Salvation

Judging Another's Salvation is Best Left to God
Judgment Skewed in Judging

From a recent exchange I had on Twitter judging me :

 

Him :   False teacher alert  ( A Brother’s notification he placed on my Twitter account ).

 

Me :   Have you read my blog ? Try reading it before judging . From where I have been, I know too well what I am talking about . I was under informed , too.

 

Him :   Feeling guilty eh lol anyone that believes they can lose their salvation IS NOT saved in the first place. ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved’ refute that!

 

Well, let’s talk about a few things … judging and judgment and salvation …

Comfort : The Perfect Bait for the OSAS Trap

Heavenly Comfort
Heavenly Comfort

How do you take your comfort ?  Stirred , Shaken , Straight , or  Slanted ?  I like mine straight or stirred .  I don’t care for slanted .  I might take a tumble , then I would be shaken !   Jesus went back up to heaven so that He could send us the Comforter .  The Holy Spirit living in us .
