The word saved is another misunderstood word. Along with salvation and deliverance.
The common definition in all three is PRESERVATION.
Preservation in this life. During this mortal life. This life is our test, our trial. “That I may prove them, whether they will walk in My law, or no.”
The “churches” teach “once saved, always saved”.
They also teach, that by your own declaration, you get to choose to be “saved”.
They also teach the gospel of “personal salvation”.
None of these are scriptural and are only “church” doctrine.
Ezekiel 3:17 Son of man, I have made you a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at My mouth, and give them warning from Me.
3:18 When I say unto the wicked, You shalt surely die; and you givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.
The wicked are the wicked and unrighteous Israelites. Yahweh is telling Ezekiel to warn the wicked of his race to turn from their wicked ways.
3:19 Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you hast delivered your soul.
3:20 Again, When a righteous (H6662- lawful) man doth turn from his righteousness (H6664- what is right, the law), and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because you hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness (H6666- righteous acts) which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand.
It is our duty to warn our brethren to turn from their wicked ways.
When we follow The Way we are preserved in this life.
When we do not follow The Way we are exposed to the calamities of being mortal and without protection.
Ezekiel 33:12 Therefore, you son of man, say unto the children of your people, The righteousness (H6666- acts) of the righteous (H6662- lawful) shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness (H6666- own acts, justification), and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses (H6666- righteous acts) shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
33:14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, You shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right (H6666- just);
33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again (repaid) that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
33:16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right (H6666- just); he shall surely live.
33:17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of Yahweh is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness (H6666- righteous acts), and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right (H6666- just), he shall live thereby.
Very simple. Past righteousness does not clear present or future sinning.
Past sins do not count against present or future righteousness.
Scripture teaches that we are preserved by obedience and walking in The Way.
Scripture teaches that God chooses who will be saved (preserved).
Scripture teaches the gospel of the kingdom.
The definitions of SAVED go as such:
From Webster's 1828
Preserved from evil; injury or destruction; kept frugally; prevented; spared; taken in time.
To preserve from injury, destruction or evil of any kind; to rescue from danger; as, to save a house from the flames; to save a man from drowning; to save a family from ruin; to save a state from war.
The act of saving; preservation from destruction, danger or great calamity.
To keep or save from injury or destruction; to defend from evil.
To uphold; to sustain.
To save from decay; to keep in a sound state; as, to preserve fruit in winter. Salt is used to preserve meat.
To season with sugar or other substances for preservation
To keep or defend from corruption; as, to preserve youth from vice.
Saved from injury, destruction or decay; kept or defended from evil; seasoned with sugar for preservation.
The act of preserving or keeping safe; the act of keeping from injury, destruction or decay; as the preservation of life or health; the preservation of buildings from fire or decay; the preservation of grain from insects; the preservation of fruit or plants. When a thing is kept entirely from decay, or nearly in its original state, we say it is in a high state of preservation.
These definitions from the dictionary have nothing to do with “being saved” as the “churches” teach.
They all are defining preservation of life. Physical things. Protection.
Now let's examine the scriptural definitions.
From the Hebrew:
H2421 châyâh a verb
A prim root (compare H2331, H2424); to live, whether literally or figuratively; causatively to revive: - keep (leave, make) alive, X certainly, give (promise) life, (let, suffer to) live, nourish up, preserve (alive), quicken, recover, repair, restore (to life), revive, (X God) save (alive, life, lives), X surely, be whole.

This one is special in that it is the name of our Saviour. Jesus is not His name. Jesus does not mean anything. The letter 'j' is only about 500 years old.
Yahshua is the name of our Prince. Yahweh is the name of our God. Yahweh means I AM. Yahshua means salvation, as the above definition reveals. Yah = God, and Shua = salvation.
Halleluyah- Praise Yah (Yahweh). Praise Yahweh for Yahshua our preservation.

As we can see, the common definition is PRESERVATION. We are preserved in this mortal life if we abide in His Ways, laws, commandments, statutes, judgments and ordinances.
Nobody is “saved” yet. And especially not by your own self declaration. (“I'm saved”)
We are not “once saved, always saved”. Anyone can go back on their word. Only Yahweh keeps His word.
Our preachers have been lied to and have been taught this false doctrine and now they teach that same false doctrine to you. It's called untempered mortar. (See 'Ezekiel' in Scriptures menu – chapters 13 and 22).
Paul even knew that he wasn't “saved”. Here are some examples that being “saved” as in “once saved, always saved” is not scriptural.
1Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
2Corinthians 10:18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Prince commendeth.
Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint (falter) not.
4:8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would He not afterward have spoken of another day.
4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
4:10 For he that is entered into His rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His.
The people don't have the 'rest' that they think they do. Did they stay in the period of peace and obedience in the Promised Land? No. What about today? No.
6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit,
6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame.
Once you learn the truth (gain knowledge and understanding), and fail to uphold it, then you are liable to be condemned.
'If they shall fall away' sure sounds like “once save always saved” is not backed up by scripture.
3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Apprehended means to lay hold of, obtain, attain, seize upon, take into one's self.
3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (ahead),
3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Why press toward the mark if you are already “saved”?
2Peter 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Repentance and preservation is an ongoing thing in this life. Old sins are past sins, how can you be “saved” if the Kingdom has not arrived yet and sin still exists?
2Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Prince and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
If Paul understands that being “saved” is not a one and done deal, how can today's “church” goers declare that it is? We should not be so sure or arrogant of ourselves, proclaiming “oh, I'm saved”. Being “saved” is an ongoing thing. That's why the real meaning is preserved, or preservation. It has to do with this mortal life. We must continue imitating Christ's example. Preservation is an 'ongoing' thing. We are preserved when we obey His laws, love our brethren, and participate in building the kingdom.
How about these verses referring to the OT sacrificial rituals.
Hebrews 10:1 For the law (of rituals) having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they (the priesthood) offered year by year continually make the comers (those coming forth) thereunto perfect. (Heb 9:9,11)
People cannot become perfected by offering sacrifices. Christ prefers obedience.
People today cannot become perfected by declaring “I'm saved”. Christ wants you to prove your obedience, daily and with endurance.
10:2 For then would they (the sacrifices) not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
When the people sinned, atonement was necessary. The atonement was only for that year. The true meaning is that it is a propitiation, a covering over of sin. Even back then there was no such thing as “once saved, always saved”. You still sin everyday. No one is “saved” yet.
10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
It was a temporary atonement, meant to teach repentance and obedience. Only the sacrifice of Christ could cleanse sin, but not future sin, unless repentance and obedience are practiced daily. In the Old Covenant, the people sinned daily and atonement was made continually by the priesthood. With the New Covenant, people still sin daily, but we must continually make atonement by ourselves and for ourselves through the repentance and remission of sin to Christ, because it is the priesthood and it's rituals that expired (were 'done away with') when Christ died and became our High Priest and mediator.
Still think you're “saved”?
Joshua 24:20 If ye forsake Yahweh, and serve strange gods (or false doctrine), then He will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that He hath done you good.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
3:12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
None of us are “saved”. But if we seek Yahweh, and not by “just believing”, but by doing, practicing, learning, obeying, then we will be preserved in this life. None of us are righteous and therefore none of us are “saved”.
Since there are over 1600 verses on saved, all having to do with mortal preservation through obedience, only a handful from each book will be demonstrated.

These verses will be examined closer, since most people read the New Testament more.
It will again be demonstrated that saved simply means preserved.
From G4982 sozo, meaning saved, be (make)whole, healed, do well, protect, deliver, and preserve. Used 110X
Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shalt call His name YAHSHUA: for He shall save His people from their sins.
We will sin everyday until we die. We are not “saved”. If we live according to His example, He shall preserve His people from their transgressions.
Matthew 8:24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but He was asleep.
Matthew 8:25 And His disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Prince, save us: we perish.
Here saved means deliver. Deliver us from the stormy sea. Preservation.
Matthew 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.
Matthew 9:22 But Jesus turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith hath made you whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Whole means healed. The woman didn't think she was “saved”, she was healed. Preserved.
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Enduring to the end cannot happen without preservation. Saved here is delivered. If you endure to the end, you have been delivered.
Matthew 14:30 But when he (Peter) saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Prince, save me.
Prince, deliver me, from drowning. Preserved.
Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it.
Here save would be either do well or protect. If you do for yourself and neglect your brethren, you have your reward now. If you do for your brethren, and let the Prince do for you, you will find life hereafter.
Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
'Lost' in Greek is 'apollumi', which means put away in punishment, exiled, separated.
When Yahweh divorced Israel because of their disobedience (in 745 BC), they were separated from His blessings. They were punished, scattered in the wilderness for 2520 years, until when He regathered the 12 tribes in 1776. A nation born in a day. (Is 66:6) America, Ame = My people, Rica = plentiful land.
The 'lost sheep', we are His sheep. The Jews are not Israel, they are descendants of Cain and of Esau.
Christ came to preserve what was 'lost'. All the definitions fit here. The gospel is about, to, and for His sheep. He came to protect, save, heal, make whole, do well, and deliver us. By imitating His example we are preserved.
Matthew 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Matthew 19:25 When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
With God does not mean “just believing”, if your with Him you are in obedience to His Word. Word in Greek is logos, meaning the plan.
Saved would be delivered. You have to be preserved to be delivered.
Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved (delivered).
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
8 Thus saith Yahweh, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for My servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all.
9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of My mountains (kingdoms): and Mine elect shall inherit it, and My servants shall dwell there.
Referring to Christ and the Kingdom.
The seven years of tribulation is not scriptural doctrine. It is “church” doctrine, set up to support the “rapture” doctrine, which is also false. But there will be trials and tribulation, we are in them now. When society is not a Christian society, then society is in tribulation. It will fall and come to an end.
Follow His Way regardless, and you will be preserved through it.
Matthew 27:40 And saying, You that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save Yourself. If You be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
27:41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking Him, with the scribes and elders, said,
Matthew 27:42 He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He be the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him.
Matthew 27:49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
Deliver would be the word for these verses.
Mark 3:4 And He saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
To preserve life, or to kill?
Mark 5:23 And besought Him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
Here the KJV translators put healed, it's the same word saved comes from. It simply means she was preserved.
Mark 6:56 And whithersoever He entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought Him that they might touch if it were but the border of His garment: and as many as touched Him were made whole.
Whole means healed, preserved, in this life. Not “saved” as the “churches” teach.
Mark 10:52 And Jesus said unto him, Go your way; your faith hath made you whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
Christ healed him, he didn't “save” him. The man's moral conviction to the faith of Christ preserved him.
Mark 15:31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; Himself He cannot save. Deliver.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
As far as “baptism” goes, we must acknowledge that this was done by John, for the Levitical priesthood, and Christ. This ended after Christ died, He became our high priest and no man can perform any ritual to “save” you. Now the true immersion is in the knowledge and understanding in the Holy Spirit. Water or a man will not “save” you or give you knowledge and understanding, but immersion in correct knowledge and understanding will preserve you.
Luke 8:12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
You are not “saved” by “believing”, you are preserved by doing. The devil (adversary) does not want us to be preserved.
Luke 8:36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed.
Healed is preserved. Made whole. Delivered from demons.
Luke 8:48 And He said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith (moral conviction) hath made thee whole; go in peace.
8:49 While He yet spake, there cometh one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to Him, Thy daughter is dead; trouble not the Master.
8:50 But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole.
Believe that I am He and that I will heal her.
Luke 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
Christ did not come to “save” everybody just because. He came to turn the unrighteous to righteousness and to preserve His people. We are preserved if we walk in His example.
Luke 13:23 Then said one unto him, Prince, are there few that be saved? And He said unto them,
13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
13:25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Master, Master, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
Psalm 32:6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
'Great waters' is a symbolism of peoples. Yahweh will protect His people from the Devil's children.
Isaiah 55:6 Seek ye Yahweh while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near:
13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in Your presence, and You hast taught in our streets.
13:27 But He shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from Me, all ye workers of iniquity.
“Just believing” and believing that “your saved” is the same as saying you don't need to be preserved, that your already “saved”. How arrogant. We must know, understand, and follow Him to be preserved.
Luke 18:42 And Jesus said unto him, Receive your sight: your faith hath saved you.
Made you whole, restored you.
John 3:17 For God sent not His Son into the world (society) to condemn the world (society); but that the world (society) through Him might be saved (preserved).
3:20 For every one that doeth (practices) evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (exposed).
3:21 But he that doeth (practices) truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought (engaged in) in God.
Do, practice, engage in God, and be preserved in this godless society.
John 5:34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.
The testimony will preserve you. And it's not a given, notice the word might. You might want to re-examine your understanding of “saved”.
John 10:9 I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The Jews have been kicked out of 109 countries over time because of their destructive and parasitic habits. Now they are those in our own government passing their regulations, opening the doors to every race to consume our substance, and scattering the sheep by their Judaism which is taught in our “churches”.
Enter the door of truth and be preserved. Enter the door of false doctrine and be destroyed.
John 11:11 These things said He: and after that He saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
John 11:12 Then said His disciples, Prince, if he sleep, he shall do well.
11:13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that He had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
The disciples thought if Lazarus rested, he would heal.
John 12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
Christ is referring to the Christian Era, His death brought forth much fruit.
12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world (society) shall keep it unto life eternal.
12:26 If any man serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall also My servant be: if any man serve Me, him will My Father honour.
Christ isn't saying anything about “just believing”. It's about following, practicing, being.
John 12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Deliver Me from this hour.
John 12:47 And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world (society), but to save the world (society).
The first advent was to show the model of the example He expects us to imitate, not to judge us.
The second advent will be to judge us. Nobody is “saved” yet. Nobody is escaping in some “rapture”. We must hear His words with understanding and do them, and by them we will be preserved until Judgment Day.
Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Prince shall be saved.
'whosoever' in the context of the Bible, is the seed of Abraham.
'saved' means preserved. It's an ongoing thing, not “once saved always saved”. Christ came only for the lost sheep of the House of Israel, not just anyone who says “I believe”. Note the context in the next verse.
2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved (appointed for you) of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: (Matt 26:24, Luke 22:22)
The very kinsmen of Christ that were influenced by the ruling religious sects of the scribes, Sadducees and Pharisees, participated in His death.
Acts 2:40 And with many other words did he (Peter) testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
The context of this sermon of Peter is talking about the corrupt religious sects who agitated the people to join in with them and crucify Christ. They must be saved (protected) from the enemies of Christ and the wicked people of their own race.
Protect yourselves, deliver yourselves from this perverse race that has taken over the priesthood.
Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Prince added to the church daily such as should be saved.
The KJV translators were instructed to change the Greek word 'ecclesia' to “church” every time.
Ecclesia means a 'called out' body, a gathering of 'saints'. According to scripture these would be the children of Israel. The descendants of race of Adam. That would be the anglo-saxon peoples of the world today. Us. The “church” in scripture NEVER means a building or the clerical hierarchy of Judaism that it has become.
Again, nobody is “saved”. We don't get our stamp of approval before we die. We stand for the Word and the Truth and Follow His Ways and are preserved.
After the healing of a lame man since the womb...
Acts 4:9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole.
So Peter was having a very powerful sermon, healing the lame man, etc. and the Edomite rulers were getting jealous. Now Peter is addressing two groups, group one, the rulers and those deceived Israelites following the rulers, and group two, the Israelites who kept the true faith.
Whole means healed. Same Greek word as saved.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The original Greek: 12 And there is no deliverance in any other, for there is not another name under the heaven which has been given among men by which it is necessary for us to be preserved.
A name alone is not enough. What the name represents and the loyalty to those representations is what preserves. Besides, the “churches” don't even know His Name. God is a title. LORD is a title, and comes from Baal, meaning master, lord, ruler. Baal is Satanic. Jehovah is a combination of Hebrew consonants and Greek vowels resulting in a bastardized version created by a medieval monk.
Acts 11:14 Who shall tell you words, whereby you and all your house shall be saved.
11:15 And as I (Peter) began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them, as on us at the beginning.
11:16 Then remembered I the word of the Prince, how that He said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.
Two separate baptisms. One by John, a Levitical priest, with water, for Christ. The other with the knowledge and understanding of the Holy Spirit. Immersed in Truth.
Knowledge and understanding preserves.
Acts 14:9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith (moral conviction) to be healed,
Comes from the same word as saved. Saved means healed means preserved.
Acts 15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, and said, Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.
These 'certain men' were the Judaizers. Spreading their religion of apostasy.
Being circumcised does not qualify you for “salvation”. One who gets circumcised is not automatically “saved”.
Acts 15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
The us and them are the Judaeans of the house of Judah in Jerusalem and the Greeks, who were of the dispersed tribes of the house of Israel. These were of the tribes that did not return after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities and forgot and lost their heritage and laws.
Acts 15:10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
Acts 15:11 But we believe that through the grace (favor) of the Prince Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they (the fathers).
The fathers were not “saved” the way the “churches” teach. The original group of the Exodus was destroyed in the wilderness, except Joshua and Caleb. Many of the fathers were destroyed in the wars of Kings and Chronicles, throughout scripture, our disobedient and rebelling fathers were destroyed. But the ones that followed Yahweh were PRESERVED.
Acts 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Prince Jesus Christ, and you shalt be saved, and your house.
So they didn't “just believe”. They educated them in the word and what was expected of followers. And by following comes preservation.
Acts 27:20 And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.
Acts 27:31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved.
So if they stay in the ship they are “saved”? No, if they stay in the ship, they will be protected and delivered from the storm.
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies (odious, actively hostile), we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Prince Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
'atonement' should be 'reconciliation'
Atonement is something we bring for breaking the law. Christ did not break any law, He reconciled us by propitiation, the act of appeasing, in our case, eternal death, something we deserve.
By living according to the faith (allegiance) of Christ, the same allegiance (faith) He has to the Father, we will be preserved. Only Christ had the faith (allegiance). He performed the duty perfectly, hence His preservation up to His appointed death, and His reward for perfectly following His duty. The model was shown for us.
Romans 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
Is Paul saying we are “saved” just by hoping? Certainly not.
Let's examine the word hope.
Hope is G1680, elpis, meaning to anticipate, expectation or confidence.
Would you expect a reward without doing anything for it? Of course not.
The expectation would be the reward for following The Way, obedience, allegiance (faith), loyalty to the faith of Christ.
Romans 8:24 in plain English. For we are preserved by the expectation: but the expectation that is seen is not an expectation: for what a man sees, why would he expect?
Anticipation and confidence also fit.
Romans 9:27 Isaiah also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:
If everybody is “saved”, how is there going to be only a remnant left?
Perhaps all those that think they are “saved” are numbered as the sand of the sea, and the one's that understand that there is no such thing as “being saved” are the remnant! The humble, not the arrogant that declare “I'm saved” like it's up to them. If you are drowning in the sea, do you get to choose to be saved?
A remnant will be preserved. Throughout the scriptures, only a righteous and obedient remnant were the ones preserved.
Romans 10:9 That if you shalt confess with your mouth the Prince Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, you shalt be saved.
Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess (agree with) Me before men, him will I confess (agree with) also before My Father which is in heaven.
10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness (justice); and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation .
Salvation through repentance, and continued righteousness, which is walking in Christ's example.
10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed. (Is 28:16)
10:12 For there is no difference between the Judaean (circumcised) and the Greek (uncircumcised): for the same Prince over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Prince shall be saved.
Believing and calling Him is not enough. We must stand for Him and His ways as well. That means NOT tolerating the unrighteousness in our society. The “churches” teach tolerance. They teach to love the enemy, don't offend them, they allow gays in church, and marry them, they allow interracial couples in church. Our society has not been Christian for over 50 years now. We don't confess Him anymore, we've become quite and politically correct.
You can believe in Him but not stand for Him. This is not good enough.
If you believe in Him and stand for Him, you will be preserved.
Romans 11:14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh (my kinsmen), and might save some of them.
Paul hoped to contest his brethren into receiving the gospel in order that they might hear and understand the truth of their heritage, and therefore be preserved.
Paul himself can't “save” them. “Churches” can't “save” anyone. Nobody can be “saved”. Only through following the example of Christ can we be preserved.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
11:27 For this is My covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
This was the prophecy of the coming Messiah. His death cleansed our sins, not our future sins, it's up to us to be mindful and strive to live righteously and frequently ask for forgiveness. We still sin everyday and if we follow Him we will be preserved and favored.
1Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
The gospel is not for those outside the promises and covenants. Christ came for His kinsmen, His blood, His race. His family. The bible is a book of monogomy.
The 'us' is referring to Israelites who are being 'saved' (preserved) in this life by following and obeying Him.
2Corinthians 2:15 Seeing that we of the Anointed are a sweet fragrance to Yahweh, among these being preserved and among those being destroyed; 16 Although in those, a fragrance of death into death, yet in these, a fragrance of life into life; and who for these things is befitting?
1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom (cunning) of the wise (shrewd), and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Isaiah 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
1:20 Where is the wise (cunning)? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world (age)? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world (society)?
1Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Verses 19-20 The whole thing about the gospel sounded crazy to the Greeks (who were of the dispersed 10 tribes, the uncircumcised).Yahweh has been pleased by the folly of the proclamation (preaching of gospel) to preserve those believing.
1:22 For the Judaeans require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: (Matt 12:38, Mark 8:11)
1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Judaeans a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1:24 But unto them which are called, both Judaeans and Greeks, anointed of Yahweh, power and wisdom.
1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
John 7:48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on Him?
No. Just because someone is noble or holds high office doesn't mean they are called.
1Corinthians 3:13 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.
3:14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
1Corinthians 3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved (preserved); although consequently through fire.
Anything built without Christ will be consumed. This life, our works and actions will either stand or fall, depending on our faith (allegiance) with Christ.
Regarding the topic of incest among the Corinthians
1Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the nations, that one should have his father's wife.
Fornication includes all elicit sex, including incest. Even if your father's wife is not your mother, she is still his property. (Deut 22:30, Lev 18:8, Eph 5:3)
5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
Cast out. If an Israelite is unrepentant and will not change their ways, they are to be cast out of the society and Yahweh will deal with them.
5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged (determined) already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
Sounds like Paul knew those who were involved.
5:4 In the name of our Prince Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Prince Jesus Christ,
1Corinthians 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Prince Jesus.
Psalm 109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan (the Adversary) stand at his right hand.
When the wicked is cast out of society, they are without Yahweh's protection, and the adversaries of Christ will either consume them or prompt them to repent.
'The day of the Prince Jesus' would be the 2nd advent, as Corinthians is written after His death. His spirit might be delivered on Judgment Day, if he repents and returns to The Way.
Verses 12-14 is about spouses with different beliefs. Paul is saying that as long as your spouse is not a burden to your faith, hold out hope that they may come around.
5:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
If they are offended, let them go.
1Corinthians 7:16 For what knowest you, O wife, whether you shalt save thy husband? or how knowest you, O man, whether you shalt save thy wife?
Here the word is keep. People can't “save” people. The questions are referring to the spouses not knowing if they will stay with (keep) each other.
1Corinthians 9:22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
Paul was able to speak Greek as well as Hebrew, being able to relate to the dispersed Nations of Israel.
9:23 And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.
Paul is not saying that he can “save” people. He knows that by bringing the message to them that will and can hear, he is giving them a chance to run with it.
9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. (James 1:12, Rev 2:10)
He's referring to athletes obtaining a worthless crown. A worldly prize.
1Corinthians 10:33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
The context is of foods sacrificed unto idols, but the “churches” use them to teach you to eat pork. In verse 27, if you are invited to a feast, don't worry if the meat was bought at the pagan markets, for what is meat, what is an idol? Nothing. Unless you are participating in the pagan temple rituals. Meat was bought in the markets that were attached to the temple. The temple became pagan and performed their rituals with the sacrifices of the animals they ate. Unless you had your own farm, this is where you got your meat. If the Greeks and Judaean Israelites fought over these disputations instead of practice brotherly love, they would not be serving Yahweh.
1Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory (hold fast, DO) what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
'Saved' in scripture is NOT the same as “Being saved” as the “churches” teach.
The word 'saved' means preserved. This is an ongoing thing. Ongoing meaning that IF you strive to follow The Way, and consciously and sincerely try to imitate Christ's example, and learn your Heritage, then you will be preserved in this life, to have a chance in the Kingdom. This depends on IF your efforts and “faith” (allegiance to Prince Yahshua) are made of gold and silver, and not hay and stubble. What is gold and silver? Truth and understanding.
What is hay and stubble? If you believe that “once you are saved you are always saved”, then you are saying that you are now accomplished, will never sin again, and are basically translated just as Christ was when He rose. You got your ticket punched and all you are doing is waiting for the ride outta here. Please, wake up.
2Corinthians 2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
Christ does not always refer to the man, it often refers to the people, the anointed seed.
The Greek makes more sense: 15 Seeing that we of the Anointed are a sweet fragrance to Yahweh, among these being preserved and among those being destroyed;
Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved😉
The Greek: 5 and we being dead in transgressions, are made alive with the Anointed (the group), (in favor are you being preserved),
2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
2:7 That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His grace (favor) in His kindness toward us through (among the number of) Christ Jesus. (Tit 3:4)
'Might' means maybe. Maybe if you are among the number of those in allegiance to His faith, you will receive favor (grace).
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace (favor) are ye saved through faith (allegiance); and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
There is nothing we do for this favor (grace). It is a free gift from Yahweh because of the promises made to Abraham and his seed, our kinsmen.
2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
If we gained grace (favor) because of works (rituals), then we could boast that we saved ourselves. Paul is not saying the law or works are not needed, but simply that they put you into position to receive the favor (grace).
We are preserved when we have favor, and we have favor when we are in allegiance with Him.
1Thessalonians 2:16 (The Pharisees) Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles (dispersed nations of Israel) that they might be saved (presereved), to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
John 7:35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will He go, that we shall not find Him? will He go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles (Greeks), and teach the Gentiles (Greeks)?
'Gentile' does not mean non-Jew. It simply means nation, kinsmen of the same race. In this case some of the dispersed of Israel from the Babylonian captivity settled in Greece. Paul was the apostle to the 'Nations', or the dispersed (uncircumcised) of Israel.
2Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
People love their “church”. It's what they've always done, it's comfortable. They believe every word out of their preachers mouth. Jesus is a Jew, you are a “Gentile”, “just believe” and wait for the “rapture”, that you choose to be “saved”. Homos and mixed couples are tolerated.
People, the 'leaven' of the Pharisees has risen so high that the 'truth' has been covered with apostasy.
2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith (allegiance), giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils (Judaism);
A strong delusion is doctrine that today's “churches” teach. If you are not examining what you are learning, you might be in for a rude awakening.
1Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
The Greek reads: 15 Trustworthy is this saying, and worthy of all acceptance: that Christ Yahshua came into Society to deliver wrongdoers, of which I am first,
Paul knows he did wrong to the children of Israel, his own kinsmen, it's possible he feels that he was the first of the worst to be forgiven after the ascension of Christ.
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have (desires) all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
This is a conditional verse. Yahweh wants (desires) us to be preserved in this life by coming to and living in the truth. The truth that we are the descendants of Jacob and have a duty to be the light of this corrupt society.
1Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
The Greek has the ending as “...the woman being deceived when the transgression occurred.”
Eve was beguiled by the Devil when the transgression (sex) occurred.
Adam chose to accept Eve after she had fallen, and in doing so Adam also transgressed. Adam could, and should have asked Yahweh for another wife of righteousness.
This is similar to when Joseph thought Mary was with another man. Joseph was willing to put her away and not accept her, only this child was of Yahweh and not of Satan.
1Timothy 2:15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved (delivered) in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
1Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto yourself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this you shalt both save yourself, and them that hear you.
Preservation for obedience.
This verse is not saying our salvation comes by our own hand, or that we can “save” others, rather if you continue in what the doctrine teaches us, you will do well.
2Timothy 1:9 (Yahweh) Who hath saved (preserved) us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace (favor), which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
2Timothy 4:18 And the Prince shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Finally the translators used the correct word.
Psalm 121:7 Yahweh shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit;
The Greek: 5 Not from works of those in righteousness, things which we have done, but according to that mercy of His, He has preserved us through a bath of rebirth and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
3:6 Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; (Ez 36:25)
Our preservation is because of the promises made to Abraham regarding his seed. Our duty is our works, but our salvation is not because of us doing them, we are supposed to do them.
Hebrews 5:7 Who in the days of His (Christ's) flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him (Yahweh) that was able to save (deliver) Him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
The last part should read: '...and He (Christ) was heard because of that devotion.'
5:8 Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered;
5:9 And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation (deliverance) unto all them that obey Him;
Deliverance and preservation is the result of obedience.
Hebrews 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.
Christ is our intercessor, and not just one time, but as often as we repent, which should be everyday.
James 1:20 For the wrath (anger) of man worketh (accomplishes) not the righteousness of God.
James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
A soul is a person. The word preserves your person (soul).
Acts 13:26 Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.
1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving (defrauding) your own selves.
But the “churches” teach that all you have to do is “just believe”. And besides your already “saved” right?
James 2:14 What doth it profit (benefit), my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
The “churches” teach you, “Yes”. Who will you put your trust in, the “churches” or scripture?
Belief alone does not cut it.
James 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art you that judgest another?
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (the grave).
Disputes should be handled privately. If they can't, they should find a witness. If still nothing is settled, it must go to the elders, or those appointed.
James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church (assembly); and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Prince (Yahshua):
The beginning of verse 14 should not be a question. It should read 'Any sick among you must summon the elders...'
James 5:15 And the prayer of faith shall save (heal) the sick, and the Prince shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Heal is the word here. Faith means allegiance. Allegiance heals and preserves the sick.
James 5:19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert (correct) him;
James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth (correcteth) the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
Matthew 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
Deliver from certain death, if he does not convert. No man can “save” another. But those that are corrected can now follow The Way and live.
1Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
Baptism was a Levitical ritual done by John the Baptist for Christ, preparing Him for the sacrifice. This was part of the ordinances that were done away with. Christ was the last sacrifice, and John was the last of the Old Covenant priesthood. Now we must immerse ourselves in the knowledge and understanding of the Word. Being immersed in Christ with understanding and obedience can preserve you. Only Christ can be your path, not a man dunking you in water in front of the public in this pagan ritual.
1Peter 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful (trustworthy) Creator.
Luke 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
A green tree would represent God's children, wet with His Word. Adam's children, Abraham's seed, Jacob's children, who are the Israelites, who are Us. The Anglo-Saxon nations of the world. The dry tree would represent Satan's children, dry with NO Spirit. Cain's children mixed with Esau's children, who are Edomites, who are Jews. Their end is described in the Book of Obadiah.
Jude 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance (remind you), though ye once knew this, how that Yahweh, having saved (delivered) the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Yahweh destroyed the generation that left Egypt in the wilderness because they believed not and conformed not to The Way. So much for “once saved, always saved”.
Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Prince Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
The Greek: 22 And indeed have mercy upon those who are hesitating.
Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
23 Now some you save snatching them from the fire, but some have mercy upon in fear, hating even garments having been defiled by the flesh.
Garments often refer to our skin, and often refer to race mixing.
Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Revelation 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
The nations are the non-Israelite Adamites that are saved, delivered, preserved. These would be the generations of Adam through Abraham. The other Anglo-Saxon branches of our race.
From the above verses we can see that the scriptures do NOT teach that we are “saved” the way the “churches” teach. The Bible doesn't guarantee your reward before this mortal test is over. It doesn't teach “once saved, always saved”. It does not teach “personal salvation”. And certainly does not teach that you get to claim that “you are saved” just because you “accept Him into your heart”. These mean NOTHING without obedience. Scripture teaches that there is more to “believing and accepting”. The “churches” do not teach the verses that show we must obey, follow, imitate, practice, stand for, and perform the duty of being a child of a called out, elected, chosen race.
Being “saved” simply means being preserved in this life. The name of our Savior is the very definition of being preserved, Yahshua Messiah.
From G4991 soteria, meaning saved, salvation, deliver, and health. Used 45X
Luke 1:68 Blessed be Yahweh God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people,
Luke 1:69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David;
David was of the tribe of Judah, as is Christ, and up through to Queen Elizabeth II.
1:70 As He spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
Luke 1:71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
1:72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy covenant;
1:73 The oath which He sware to our father Abraham,
1:74 That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear,
1:75 In holiness and righteousness before Him, all the days of our life.
1:76 And you, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for you shalt go before the face of Yahweh to prepare His ways (path);
Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto His people by the remission of their sins,
We can't serve Him by “just believing”. We must serve with obedience, all the days of our life. This is how we are preserved.
Luke 19:9 And Jesus said unto him (Zacchaeus), This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Preservation comes by the 'practice' of righteousness. Zacchaeus, as stated, was of the seed of Abraham, and his actions showed allegiance (faith).
That which was lost are His sheep. His people that were put away in punishment (lost) for their disobedience.
John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is from among the Judaeans.
They worshiped dumb gods, myths.
Christ was a Judahite from the tribe of Judah. The remnant that returned from captivity to Jerusalem was responsible for preserving the law and bringing in the Messiah.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The Greek reads: 12 And there is no deliverance in any other, for there is not another name under the heaven which has been given among men by which it is necessary for us to be preserved.
It's really simple, follow Him and be preserved. Don't be arrogant and claim that you are already delivered, even Christ was not delivered until His death.
Acts 7:25 For he (Moses) supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by His hand would deliver them: but they understood not.
Yahweh delivered the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage, they weren't “saved” and they still had their pagan habits, and were destroyed.
Acts 13:26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.
In the KJV you see the word 'and' in between each of the underlined above. They don't exist in the original manuscripts. They were added by the translators to separate into groups, but the context of scripture is always the children of Israel. All the above underlined are of one family.
The word of preservation and deliverance are sent to only this family.
Acts 13:47 For so hath the Prince commanded us, saying, I have set you to be a light of the Gentiles (dispersed nations), that you shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
Gentiles simply means nations, any nation of people. It does not mean non-Israelite.
The nations are the dispersed of Israel that were scattered after the Exodus and during the Babylonian and Assyrian captivities and lost their heritage. They needed to be reminded of who they were. With this knowledge, they were preserved.
Acts 16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination (demon) met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying (uttering spells): Acts 16:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit (demon), I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
16:19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,
Paul, in Philippi, casts a demon out of a slave. The slave's owners, who were making money off of her demonic powers, have the apostle and Silas beaten and thrown in prison. They are only set free when a miraculous earthquake occurs and loosens their bonds.
Acts 27:34 Wherefore I pray you to take some meat: for this is for your health: for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.
Health is from the word for salvation. Health means preservation.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Judaean first, and also to the Greek.
The Judaeans were Israelites of the house of Judah. The Greeks were Israelites of the house of Israel. The house of Israel were the ones that forgot their heritage.
Preservation is for those that believe and follow His Ways.
Romans 10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Verses 1-3 describes the “churches” today. Don't get mad, get educated.
Notice Paul addresses Israelites, and that they might be preserved. And he also understands that people that do not have true knowledge and understanding are ignorant, claiming they “are saved”.
Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Confession is acknowledgment, a covenant, a promise. It's not just a belief.
Our fathers made a covenant with Yahweh to obey and walk in His Ways, and by doing so they were preserved.
Romans 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles (dispersed Israel nations), for to provoke them to jealousy.
Paul is saying for Judaeans who had the law, to not be jealous of the dispersed nations who did not have the law but are Israelites as well and receive the same grace (favor).
Romans 13:11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation (deliverance) nearer than when we believed.
1Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
2Corinthians 1:6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for (on behalf of) your consolation (encouragement) and salvation (preservation), which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation (encouragement) and salvation (preservation).
As we can already start to tell with the poor translations in the KJV of Paul's writings, that it is very difficult to understand.
Remember that this is a time of persecution and martyrdom.
2Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard you in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation (deliverance) have I succoured (helped) you: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (deliverance).)
6:3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
6:4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers (servants) of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
We suffer for standing for the truth, but we will be preserved and delivered.
If your “saved” already, why suffer for standing for the truth? That is also why the “churches” teach tolerance, don't rock the boat, don't be controversial. The Truth IS Controversial!
2Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world (society) worketh death.
Paul chastened them for their fornication and acceptance of it in 1 Corinthians. His sermon by that letter had a good affect. They repented. With repentance comes preservation.
Ephesians 1:13 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,
1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.
In verse 13, 'trusted'- is in italic text, which means it was added
earnest- Down payment of the Spirit (2 Cor 5:5, Rom 8:23)
The purchased possession is the seed of Abraham. Not anybody and everybody.
Philippians 1:19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation (preservation) through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
Paul preached the gospel in the open. He was the defender of the gospel
Philippians 1:27 Only let your conversation (conduct) be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
One mindedness of Pentecost.
Ephesians 4:1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Prince, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation (calling) wherewith ye are called,
1Thesselonians 2:12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto His kingdom and glory (honor).
1Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Prince Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Philippians 1:28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation (preservation), and that of God.
When you do not fear the adversaries of Christ, they understand that their days are numbered.
When you fear not the enemies of Christ, you become assured or confident of your preservation.
Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation (deliverance) with fear and trembling.
Obedience. Obedience brings deliverance.
1Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope (expectation) of salvation (deliverance).
The breastplate of faith is allegiance. The helmet is salvation. If we stand for His Ways, we can expect to be delivered.
1Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
The last part in the original Greek reads: 'but for the acquisition of preservation through our Prince Yahshua Christ.'
2Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Prince, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation (preservation) through (in) sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
Sanctification is purity, godliness. This is an ongoing practice. If one claims to be “saved”, then they are claiming that they have completed godliness.
2Timothy 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation (preservation) which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
There is still no guarantee. The elect still has to strive for allegiance in and imitation of Christ.
Notice the word may in verse 10.
2Timothy 3:15 And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
Wise unto preservation through allegiance.
John 5:39 Search the scriptures
3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine (beneficial for teaching), for reproof (evidence), for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, having prepared himself for all good works.
The scriptures are beneficial for correction. That instructs us to examine the evidence. Come off auto pilot and see if true scripture backs up “church” doctrine.
Claiming you are “saved” is the same thing as saying you are perfect, can't be corrected, and are fully instructed in righteousness. Yahweh looks down on the arrogant.
Hebrews 1:14 Are they (the angels) not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
We are the heirs of deliverance, if we hearken to the voice of His Word.
Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Prince, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him;
Hebrews 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
We will be punished for every transgression. We better repent and obey, and not just once.
Hebrews 2:10 For it became Him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory (honor), to make the captain (Originator) of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
How do we become perfect through sufferings? By claiming we are “saved”, NO! By being preserved through suffering in this ungodly society by honoring our duty to be obedient.
Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
Preservation through obedience makes perfection.
Hebrews 6:9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed (displayed) toward His name (Yahweh), in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
Another verse teaching that works are necessary. Works are imitation of Christ's example. It does not say that God doesn't forget that you “just believe”.
Things that accompany preservation are obedience.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
The last part is in a different order in the Greek: 'He shall appear a second time apart from errors, to those who look to Him for preservation.'
Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
Noah's family was preserved through the flood.
1Peter 1:5 (We) Who are kept (being preserved) by the power of God through faith (allegiance) unto salvation (deliverance) ready to be revealed in the last time.
Deliverance is revealed at the end, not by your own admission of being “saved”. The verse teaches that we are preserved through allegiance unto deliverance in the last time.
1Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
The Greek: 9 Acquiring the result of your faith (allegiance): preservation of your souls.
1Peter 1:10 Of which salvation (preservation) the prophets have enquired and searched (examined) diligently, who prophesied of the grace (favor) that should come unto you:
2Peter 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
2Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Prince is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest (twist, pervert), as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
We lost touch with our true heritage because of deception. Now our well meaning preachers are just repeating the distorted and perverted doctrine of our age old enemies.
Judeo-Christianity is the result of this. Judaism and Christianity don't mix.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Jude is warning the congregation of the 'common' teaching of salvation by the false teachers, the Judaizers. The word 'common' refers to something defiled or profane. They were teaching profane or perverted doctrine. Much like today's “churches”.
Common also comes from a primary preposition meaning 'complete', or 'unity'.
So either way he is talking about 'complete salvation' and/or warning of false doctrine.
Jude exhorted that his kinsmen contend for “the faith”.
What is “the faith”?
The faith is the allegiance to Yahweh. Without loyalty, without obedience, without the love for our brethren that Christ showed for us, faith (allegiance) is not faith.
Revelation 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
Salvation means deliverance. The angels were calling Yahweh the Deliverer.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
The underlined should read, 'and the authority of His anointed,'
'Christ' (christos in Greek) means anointed. In many instances it refers to the anointed people, the seed of Jacob.
This verse is future prophecy, when Christ returns. This also shows that none of us are “saved” yet.
Revelation 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Prince our God:
Again, future prophecy. Hallelujah, Deliverance.
All these above verses show preservation and future deliverance to those who follow Him.
From G4992 soterion, meaning salvation. Used 5X
Luke 2:30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
This is referring to Simeon, who blessed and circumcised Christ. He understood that through this child, he has seen the deliverance that He would bring His people. Simeon was told that he would not die before he had seen the Anointed Prince. He was preserved for this duty.
Luke 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
All flesh is referring to those that are promised salvation. This would only be the seed of Abraham.
All, every, and whosoever in scripture always refers to the family of the Bible, the race of Adam.
Acts 28:28 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles (dispersed Israelites), and that they will hear it.
The Gentiles are NOT non-Israelites as the “churches” teach. Gentile is a Latin word and only means a nation or race of people. Non-Israelite is an added definition, and added to deceive.
Gentiles, meaning nations, can refer to other nations or the nations of the tribes of Israel, depending on the context. Here, and in most places, it refers to the Israelites that either left Egypt before the Exodus, or that did not return to Jerusalem after the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities, and went on to settle other lands, forgetting their heritage. It was these “lost”, scattered and dispersed Israelites that Paul was chosen to educate.
Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
1Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The hope of salvation. Meaning the expectation of preservation, which comes by obedience to His Word.
Titus 2:11 For the grace (favor) of God that bringeth salvation (preservation) hath appeared to all men,
The favor comes from the promises made to Abraham and his seed. The preservation comes from obedience. All men refers to all Adamites, all of the race of Adam. You will not find anywhere in the Bible that the promises and covenants made to Abraham's descendants are given to anyone else, or the “church”.
From G1295 diasozo, meaning safe, heal, whole, save, and escaped. Used 8X
Matthew 14:36 And besought Him that they might only touch the hem of His garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

Luke 7:3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto Him the elders of the Judaeans, beseeching Him that He would come and heal his servant.
Heal is not “saved”. Healing is preservation.
Acts 23:24 And provide them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the governor.
Safe means preserved.
Acts 27:43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:
Acts 27:44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
They weren't “saved”, they were delivered from the sinking ship. Preserved.
Acts 28:1 And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
Acts 28:4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast (snake) hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
The Greeks called anyone who did not speak Greek, barbarians.
Escaped is also a form of preservation.
1Peter 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved (preserved) by water.
From G5442 phulasso, meaning keep, observe, beware, saved, and preserve. Used 30X

Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
Protecting, preserving their flock.
Luke 8:29 (For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)
Luke 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
Guards, protects, preserves.

Observes, guards, preserves the word is blessed.
Luke 12:15 And He said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
If you don't beware, how can you be preserved?
John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
The life we live for this society is vain, worthless. The life we live for the kingdom will preserve us.
John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name: those that You gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
Talking about the apostles, they followed Christ and were preserved, they were in good hands. But the son of perdition (the Jew Judas) could not be “saved”. The children of Jacob are preserved. The children of Cain and Esau are destroyed.
Acts 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Spirit: as your fathers did, so do ye.
7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
Acts 7:53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.

Acts 12:4 And when he (Herod, an Edomite Jew) had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep (guard) him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
Easter, really! Is this a pagan book of mythology? It should read 'Passover'.
Easter is a pagan holiday that worships the goddess of fertility, Diana, Artemis, Astarte. Hence all the eggs. Rabbits are very promiscuous and so are pagan sex orgies.
Passover and Easter are a Catholic merging of Christian and pagan practices. When you acknowledge Easter for anything Christian, you are apostate.
Acts 16:4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep (observe), that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.
Acts 21:24 Them take, and purify yourself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning you, are nothing; but that you thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.
Acts 21:25 As touching (concerning) the Gentiles (dispersed Israelites) which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.
Keeping the law and from idols and pagan practices will preserve you.
Acts 22:20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I (Paul) also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
Paul held the clothes of those stoning Stephen.

Acts 28:16 And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept (guarded) him.
Romans 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision?
The uncircumcision are the dispersed Israelites (the Greeks and other tribes of Israel that lived outside Judaea). All of the tribes of Israel are to observe the law, and they will be preserved.
Galatians 6:12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.
'They' are the Judaizers. If the Galatians, and we, became Judaized, then the Jews would not be set apart from us. The Jews wanted to Judaize the Christians so the Jews were not persecuted for the cross (the murder of Christ).
Galatians 6:13 For neither they (the Jews) themselves who are circumcised keep (observe) the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory (boast) in your flesh.
The Jews were first circumcised around 125 BC by John Hyrcanus. By this time circumcision was made pointless because when everybody did it you couldn't distinguish from the Israelites anymore.
2Thessalonians 3:3 But the Prince is faithful (trustworthy), who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
Trust in His faith and He will preserve you from evil.
1Timothy 5:21 I charge thee before God, and the Prince Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
1Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep (observe) that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
2Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.
Paul was not ashamed to teach through the sufferings of trying to get those ignorant Israelites to understand and remember their heritage. (Eph 3:1)
2Timothy 1:14 That good thing which was committed unto you keep by the Holy Spirit which dwelleth in us.
2Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Prince reward him according to his works: (Acts 19:33, 1 Tim 1:20)
2Timothy 4:15 Of whom be you ware (beware) also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
2Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved (preserved) Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
2Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
3:18 But grow in grace (favor), and in the knowledge of our Prince and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory (honor) both now and for ever. Amen.
1Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Master of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
We must have a clear and fresh new mind. As a child. Unlearn the large amount of false teaching that we are used to, and grow in understanding.
Claiming your “saved” is a result of being led away in error, a false idea of your own stedfastness.
1John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
Jude 1:24 Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory (honor) and majesty, dominion and power (sovereignty and authority), both now and ever. Amen.
Keep means preserve. Preserve (guard) you from falling. With obedience you will be presented faultless.
Strive for preservation through obedience.
Claiming your “saved” is arrogant, defiant, and NOT scriptural.
So the “churches” teaching of “saved” has everyone believing that they are guaranteed “salvation” already, and by their own declaration. They can just sit back and be tolerant of this ungodly society and just wait around for the “rapture”.
The scriptural teaching shows us that we are only preserved in this life if we follow the example of Christ. If we strive for the faith He had. By obedience we are preserved and ultimately delivered.
Luke 11:23 He that is not with Me is against Me: and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth.
11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he (unclean spirit) walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house (the person) whence I came out.
11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
2Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world (society) through the knowledge of the Prince and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
These verses prove that there is no such thing as “once saved always saved”.
When we are against Him we are antichrist. We can be forgiven with repentance, but each time we stray we become more antichrist because we are just not learning our lesson.
