Many Christians struggle with doubting their salvation. But God intends for those who are saved to have assurance of their salvation; a know-so salvation.
There are five foundational facts upon which our faith rests.
YOU CAN BE SURE OF GOD’S FOREKNOWLEDGE OF YOUR SALVATION.
God is omniscient, and He knew you were going to be saved before you ever got saved.
The elect are those who receive Jesus as Lord.
1 Peter 1:2
The doctrine of election can only be viewed accurately and appropriately from Heaven’s viewpoint; we get confused when we try to understand election from our earthly viewpoint.
Your election is based upon God’s foreknowledge.
To foreknow does not mean “to cause”.
God knows everything that is going to happen; God knew from all eternity who would choose Him and who would not.
YOU CAN BE SURE OF YOUR PREDESTINATION TO BE LIKE JESUS. (Romans 8:29)
God does NOT predestine some people to Heaven and others to Hell. God desires that all should be saved.
1 Timothy 2:3-6
2 Peter 3:9
2 Corinthians 5:13-15
God gives us a will; we can choose to either accept Jesus or reject Him.
When God saves someone, He predestines that person to be like the Lord Jesus. This is an evidence of eternal security.
1 John 3:2
Predestination is the act of an omnipotent God who says it’s going to be done; what has been settled in Heaven cannot be annulled by Hell or humanity.
YOU CAN BE SURE OF YOUR CALLING TO SALVATION. (Romans 8:29-30)
God calls people to salvation through the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14
This call can be accepted or refused.
Scripture says that we can resist God’s call to salvation.
C.S. Lewis said that there are two categories of persons those who are like Satan and those who are like Jesus.
Satan in essence said to God, “Not Thy will, but my will be done.”
Jesus said, “Not My will, but Thine be done.”
YOU CAN BE SURE OF YOUR SETTLED JUSTIFICATION IF YOU RECEIVE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. (Romans 8:30)
Justification is an act of God, whereby He declares those who have received Jesus Christ righteous. This does not mean that they have earned righteousness; it means that righteousness has been given to them, apart from anything that they have done to deserve it, but because they have trusted in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
The only way to be justified is through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
This does not mean that we have license to sin.
YOU CAN BE SURE OF YOUR ETERNAL GLORIFICATION. (Romans 8:30)
Remember that God is in eternity, not bound by time.
God saw you as a lost sinner; He saw you under conviction; He saw you receiving Christ; He saw you in your sanctification; and in the heart and mind of God, He sees you already in Heaven.
