    @Truth John's First Epistle and Romans 8 are great chapters which show that assurance is something which we can truly know, rather than just have to wait and see about.

    Yes, I know, I was responding to historyb, and I really wasn't being serious, after all I read his statement below his response to which I do not agree!
    I try not to be, as some on this forum, lashing out at others that hold to different Doctrines.

    Exactly. We must always fight the good fight, run the good race and we have hope but we can never presume upon God and tell Him He must let us in that is up to Him.

    Well there are time's that I have my doubts, and there are many that quote all the Promises of our Savior, Personally I do not hold to once saved always saved. as Paul states, I have fought the good fight, and I have run the race [course] set before me! still having that [Hope] of the High calling of God, through Messiah!

    That is not what we find in the Gospel at all. Indeed we see over and over again that genuine believers have the assurance of salvation right here and right now. Which means that there is A HUGE misunderstanding of the Gospel in many quarters.

    Jesus declared that "everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life!!" John 3: 15-16

    As simple as that! And anyone who declares otherwise is declaring Him to be a liar!

    This is exactly back to front.
    I know I'm saved because I am a sinner, and Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). I have repented of my sins and trusted in Christ to save me from my sins and the Lord Jesus says that the one who comes to Him He will never cast out.

    No just a huge misunderstanding on those who insist on the heresy of assurance
