The Christian's Security in God is CONDITIONAL according to the Bible(Ezekiel 18:24, Matthew 24:13, Hebrews 6:4-6, Hebrews 10:26)! The Bible is CLEAR that Christians can fall away from the faith and end up going to HELL!
Matthew 10:33 says "But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
If you deny/renounce Christ before men, Christ will deny/renounce YOU before HIS FATHER which is in Heaven, which means that you will be UNSAVED and will go to HELL!
Ezekiel 18:24 "But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die."
If you are currently living for the Lord but later decide to go back to a life of sin, trusting that your past service for the Lord will keep you safe, this passage makes it VERY CLEAR that God will not remember anything you did for Him during your judgment, but because of your unfaithfulness, God will send you to HELL!
Hebrews 6:4-6 and Hebrews 10:26-31 provide further warnings about falling away, and they are NOT merely hypothetical threats, but are REAL threats from the Lord about what will happen to you if you turn back.
Hebrews 10:38-39 "Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul."
This is yet ANOTHER Warning from God about those who follow the Lord and then turn back.
2 Peter 2:20-21 says "For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 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."
The punishment in HELL for the Backslider who dies in his sins will be much more severe than the average sinner who dies in his sins. In fact, in HELL you will WISH you had never heard the gospel if you go there as a backslider, as your punishment will be MUCH WORSE!
If you're reading this and are backslidden, YOU NEED TO REPENT IMMEDIATELY! You are on DANGEROUS GROUND! Now, you may be despairing about whether God will take you back or not, but if you are worried, that is proof that you haven't committed the unpardonable sin. God is giving you a chance to repent and come back to Him as the prodigal son did in Luke 15. However, don't think God's current invitation will last forever. Don't think you can put this off. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION, NOW IS THE APPOINTED TIME(2 Corinthians 6:2)!
Hebrews 3:15 "While it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation."
TODAY is God's appointed time, so REPENT NOW! God bless.
