Can Born Again Believers Be Certain They Will Live Eternally In Heaven With Christ? — “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”

OUR CERTAINTY AND ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS, AND ETERNAL LIFE

God’s word is clear. Jesus died for our sins. When we believe in Him repent and confess our sins, at that moment we are born again spiritually and we become a member of God’s Royal Priesthood and a place for us us waiting in His Eternal Kingdom. Our forgiveness and redemption is not a result of being a good person or doing good deeds; but rather Jesus paid the penalty for all of our sins past, present and future. Jesus is God over all things and He promises “whoever believes will in Him have eternal life” (past tense)

John 3:3-8 – “Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, You must be born again. The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

John 3:14-21 – As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;  so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”

1 John 5:12-13 – “He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
John 5:24 – “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”
Jude 1:24 – “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy”
Romans 8:16 – “The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God”
Hebrews 7:25 -Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
John 10:29 – My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
Ephesians 4:30 – Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
John 6:47 – “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life.”
Romans 8:38-39 – For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 1 Corinthians 15:55
