How do you know that you are really saved? Not mainly by good works you may do: they will come as you grow. Not mainly by a surge in growth of your faith: that too will come as you grow. You will know because God Himself will let you know that He is now within you and will be now and for eternity. God does not save someone from sin and death and then leave the person in the dark. When you are really saved, you will feel His Presence, and The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit will assure you that you are His ande always will be. He does the main work in saving you from sin and death. All you have to do is ask for it sincerely and then reach out and take it, no matter how feeble your efforts may seem to you. He will take it from there and will show you what to do.

I will know I am saved when I either wake up in heaven or feel the cleansing fires of purgatory, but while I still have breathe I will "work out my salvation in fear and trembling". It's always so sad for me to hear these preachers without authority speak as is they did.

This Pastor is explaining what 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 assures us. When you start quoting John and Peter then you have to endure til the end! Earthly kingdom promise to the Nation of Israel. Cant make it in unless you do something. Repent and be baptized for the remission of sins for the kingdom of God is near. This is not what is promised to us the uncircumcised. We are promised a heavenly kingdom!

THE WORD OF GOD IS JESUS MESSIAH MANIFESTED. In John 2:13-22 Jesus gives the “kiss of death” to the Temple system. In John chapter 4 Jesus tells the Samaritan woman that He is finished with ritualized religion, Jewish & Samaritan. In 1 Corinthians 6:19; 2 Corinthians 6:16; 1 Peter 2:1-12 we are told that WE who are IN Christ have NOW become the Temple of God, the Priesthood of God and offer Spiritual Sacrifices to God. In John 19:30 Jesus spoke the Words that was the “Death knell” of the sacrificial system! The Old Testament system is FINISHED! Religion is FINISHED! Now we have access to the Holy of Holies 24/7 – 365 days of the year, as it was in the Garden before the Fall. (Hebrews 12:18-29) The Jews realized that and that was one of the reasons THEY had Him killed! The Pagans realized that the Gospel Paul was preaching, was the “kiss of death” to their religious system and that is why they were trying to kill him (Acts 19:21-41). The Holy of Holies. In the Holy of Holies, behind the heavy veil. Sat the Ark of the Covenant, where the most High dwelled. And only the high priest could enter there in, to offer a sacrifice for atonement of sin. But the veil was rent in an instant, revealing that Holy place. For on a hill nearby on a rugged cross. Justice met grace. ( chorus) Now I can go into the Holy of Holies. I can kneel and make my petition known. I can go into the Holy of Holies and although I’m just a common man, because of God’s redemption plan. I can boldly approach the throne. The blood of sacrifices is no more required. For the blood of Christ, the spotless lamb has already paid the price. In the sacrifice of worship we’ll open Heaven’s door. Allowing us to enter in, the presence of the Lord. QUESTION: So why ALL the religion in Christendom? ANSWER: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.

Very well put to its simplest term, because we are taught not to be weary in doing good, but rather watch out for the errors that can and will tear us away from that salvation (1Pe.2:18-22).
