John 20 23 MSG
“If you forgive someone’s sins, they’re gone for good. If you don’t forgive sins, what are you going to do with them
Darkness is the absence of the accurate information about God.
Isaiah talked about thick darkness.
That thick darkness is ignorance when it comes to the knowledge of God
Ecclesiastes 3 14
I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him.
John 3 16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
We received eternal life, whatever God does is forever.
Everything God does is forever because God is forever.
When it came to our newbirth God did a perfect complete work.
When it came to your salvation did you think he did half way?
What do you understand by it is finished on the cross.
I’m done and my works are perfect.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.
If it is not perfection, it is not the doing of God for God is all about perfection
Why is it that when somebody dies the first question saints ask is …
Is He born again?
Yes he did 2 years ago?
Ah Thank God ..
He is very happy where he is now.
Even without the full knowledge of God we know from/in our inside that who is born again is eternally saved

and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Psalm 94 14
For the Lord will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance.
John 6 37
All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
You are not the one in charge of your lives, so relax
No son of God will miss heaven
Once we received Christ our new birth is forever
No son can lose his or her life of God (eternal life)
God is the only one with the capacity not to expire, this eternal state is what we have come into.
I did not receive a temporal life.
I RECEIVED ETERNAL LIFE.
I AM SAVED FOREVER.
Nothing can make a son of God to go out of Christ
No matter what a son of God does he or she is eternally saved in Christ
2 Corinthians 1:21
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,
2 Corinthians 1 22
set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
John 6 27

2 Timothy 2 19
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
