ALL BELIEVERS ARE MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST

"For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones" (Eph. 5:30).

"But now hath God set the members every one of them IN THE BODY, AS IT HATH PLEASED HIM.. .Now ye are the BODY OF CHRIST..." (I Cor.12:18,27).

Will Christ be in heaven missing a foot or a hand? How absurd!  A young girl was asked, "Aren't you afraid you might slip through the Lord's fingers?" "No Sir, I AM ONE OF HIS FINGERS," she replied.

ALL BELIEVERS ARE COMPLETE IN HIM

"And ye are COMPLETE IN HIM, which is the head of all principality and power" (Col. 2:10).

If we could lose our salvation we would not be complete in Him.

ALL BELIEVERS ARE ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED

Paul wrote that God "...hath made us accepted in the beloved" (Eph. 1:6).

"The sinner can not make himself acceptable to God. Our acceptance by God, therefore is not based upon our practice, but rather upon our position in Christ."

ALL BELIEVERS ARE SAVED BY GRACE

WITHOUT ANY MIXTURE OF WORKS

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES; it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast" (Eph. 2:8, 9).

"Now to him that worketh is the reward NOT RECKONED OF GRACE, but of debt" (Rom. 4:4).

"And if by grace, then is it NO MORE OF WORKS; otherwise grace is NO MORE GRACE" (Rom. 11:6).

GRACE AND WORKS CANNOT MIX FOR SALVATION. Note also: Rom. 3:24; II Tim. 1:9; Titus 3:5.

ALL BELIEVERS WILL APPEAR AT THE JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST

"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's WORK shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's WORK of what sort it is. If any man's WORK abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's WORK shall be BURNED, he shall suffer loss: BUT HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED: yet so as by fire"2 (I Cor. 3:11-15).

ALL BELIEVERS ARE SEALED UNTO THE DAY OF REDEMPTION

"And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of REDEMPTION." (Eph. 4:30)

(The Bible did NOT say, "sealed unto the day of damnation; but REDEMPTION." Did you note the difference???)

Seal in scripture denotes OWNERSHIP. Therefore we are God's possession. Can God lose us? The Holy Spirit has promised to keep us. Will God break His promise? NO!! (Eph. 4:30).

Earnest means the Holy Spirit's promise with an obligation to fulfill. He will keep His promise.

"In whom (Jesus Christ) also we have obtained an inheritance, being PREDESTINATED according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of HIS OWN WILL: That we should be to the praise of his glory who first trusted in Christ: In whom ye also trusted after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were SEALED with that Holy Spirit of PROMISE, which is the EARNEST of our inheritance UNTIL THE REDEMPTION OF THE PURCHASED POSSESSION, unto the praise of his glory" (Eph. 1:11 -14).

ALL BELIEVERS ARE SECURE IN THE LOVE OF GOD WHICH IS IN CHRIST

"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"4 (Rom. 8:38, 39).

THE BELIEVER EXPERIENCES ONLY ONE SPIRITUAL BAPTISM

"There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in ONE HOPE of your calling; one Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM" (Eph. 4:4,5).

If a person could lose his salvation and get saved again, that would make TWO baptisms, not just one. The Bible does not talk about a second, third or fourth baptism in dealing with salvation. It says that there is only ONE.

"For by one Spirit are we ALL baptized into ONE body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into ONE SPIRIT" (I Cor. 12:13).

ALL BELIEVERS ARE SAVED BY HIS LIFE,

NOT BY A GOOD LIFE OF THEIR OWN

"For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be SAVED BY HIS LIFE" (Rom. 5:10).

THE BELIEVER IS JUSTIFIED BY CHRIST'S RIGHTEOUSNESS AND NOT BY HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS

Righteousness is given as a free gift and not something that we earn.

"...Even so by the righteousness of one THE FREE GIFT came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous" (Rom. 5:18-19).

THE BELIEVER IS CALLED, JUSTIFIED AND GLORIFIED

"Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also CALLED: and whom he called, them he also JUSTIFIED: and whom he justified, them he also GLORIFIED" (Rom. 8:30).

THE BELIEVER IS PREDESTINATED TO BE LIKE CHRIST

Predestination means to appoint or ordain beforehand by an UNCHANGEABLE PURPOSE.

"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON..." (Rom. 8:29).

THE BELIEVERS BODY MAY BE DESTROYED,

BUT HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED

"It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you...I have judged already: to deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, THAT THE SPIRIT MAY BE SAVED IN THE DAY OF THE LORD JESUS" (I Cor. 5:1-5).
