A. We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly and only by the grace of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; (Eph 2:5,8) (1 John 4:10) (John 3:16) (John 1:1-14)
B. that saved sinners are sustained and kept by the power of God through the shed blood of Christ and intercessory work of Christ on our behalf at the right hand of God; (Phil. 2:6-8) (Heb 2:9,14) (Isa 42:21) (Isa 53:4,5) (Mt 20:28) (Rom 4:25) (Heb 1:3-8) (Col 3:1)
C. and that anyone who is truly saved is eternally saved and can never be lost. (Heb 7:25,26) (Col 2:9-13) (Phil. 1:6) (Heb 2:18) (John 10:27-30) .II. Exposition
A. The way of salvation
1. God loves us (John 3:16) For God so loved the world that He gave2. We are sinners (Rom 3:23) For all have sinned3. We are dead in sin (Rom 6:23) The wages of sin is death (Eph 2:1) (were dead)4. Christ died for sinners (Rom 5:8) While we were yet sinners Christ died for us5. Saved by faith in Jesusa. (John 14:6) I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.b. (Rom 10:9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.c. (Eph 2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith
B. Kept by the power of God
1. By the shed blood of Christa. (Isaiah 53:4,5) “wounded for our transgressions”b. (Mt 20:28) “give his life as a ransom for many”2. By the resurrection of Christ (Rom 4:25) Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification3. By the sealing of the Spirit (Eph 1:13) After that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise4. By Christ’s Intercessiona. At God’s right hand (Heb 1:3) When he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; see (Heb 10:12)b. Intercession Made (Heb 7:25) Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.c.(Rom 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.
C- Never Lost Again1. In His hands (John 10:28-30) 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.2. Eternal Salvation (Heb 6:4-6) (Heb 10:15-24) Impossible to loose. (2 Tim 1:12)3. Names in Lamb’s Book of Life (Rev 20:15) (Rev 21:27)a. (Gen 5:1) Book of Adam (book of opportunity given)b.
