Who Can?

            The scripture Romans 8:35-39 quoted below tells us once we are saved; nothing, not even we ourselves can remove us from the Love of God.
            We are told by Jesus in (John 3:16),  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  Jesus tells us that if we will believe Him, He will give…everlasting those who do believe.  With just a limited mastery of English word definitions, we can know that “everlasting” means “eternal” and “eternal” means “forever,” consequently forever means “everlasting.”
            All of these words are used in scripture to teach us of “eternity” (another word which could have been placed in the circle of words above.)  By accepting Christ, we will live in eternity with Him.
            Our scripture below tells us nothing can take our salvation away.  Some after accepting Jesus as their Saviour will slip into sin, yet, Jesus has already covered them with His blood.  This covering is an eternal, everlasting, forever, covering for an eternity.
            We must know that not all who call on Jesus’ name will be saved.  Without a sincere heart, a true heart along with the desire of eternal, everlasting, forever, eternity with Jesus Christ, Salvation will not happen.

(Hebrews 10:22)  Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

            A person must willingly accept Jesus with a desire to draw near to God.    Only through Jesus can we attain the eternity we want.

(John 3:36)  He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
            We will each have an eternal life. The question is Where?  Scripture tells us without Jesus, the wrath of God abides on us.  That wrath is “Hell,” a place of torment, a place of loneliness, a place no one ever expects to go, but many will.  Know where you are going.
            Accept Him this hour, now, today.

Romans 8:35-39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  (36)  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.  (37)  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.  (38)  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,  (39)  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.
