Totally Saved  -Five Steps to Being Lost          Hit Counter

Before a nuclear missile can self-destruct, someone must first activate five separate triggers inside the missile. If all five are not properly activated, the missile may fall on its target and get all crumpled up, but it won't explode. The same is true of Sinning Christians. God has installed five safety switches inside every Christian. A Sinning Christian must first activate these five triggers before God allows them to self-destruct into Hell:

 

   1.        You must first be enlightened.
   2.        You must have tasted the Heavenly Gift.
   3.        You must have shared in the Holy Spirit.
   4.        You must have tasted the goodness of God's Word.
   5.        You must have tasted the powers of the coming age. 
      
                   Hebrews 6:4-6

If you, as a Christian, have done all five of these things, and yet you still choose to self-destruct yourself into nuclear Hell, GOD WILL LET YOU! In fact, God says you will NEVER get a second chance to be saved once you turn your back on Him.

 

Now, there is some incredibly good news hidden in these verses: out of all my Christian friends, I don't know of a single one who has yet to fulfill all five of these conditions! Therefore, in God's eyes, they are not yet capable of committing a sin that would get themselves thrown into Hell! Yes, God will punish them, but they won't get an eternal death sentence! There are a few Christians that have fulfilled these five conditions and then rejected Jesus, but they are very few, and they aren't anyone I know personally.

 

There is also another important truth in here for you Saved-Lost Christians: Yes, you can lose your salvation, but you can only lose it one time! You can be a Saved-Lost Christian, but Paul clearly says here in Hebrews that you CANNOT be a Saved- Lost- Saved- Lost- Saved- Lost Christian. Instead, you can be confident that because you have not yet experienced these five things, and especially since you haven't turned your back on Jesus, you are still TOTALLY SAVED!
