(VID) John Piper falsely teaches a type of OSAS: 'a born-again Christian cannot lose his or her salvation' – Calvin's perseverance of the saints

Host: “Can a born-again Christian lose his or her salvation?

John Piper:

“The answer to that question biblically is a resounding, clear, emphatic, joyful, glorious no. … The life that is imparted in the new birth is precisely eternal life.”

“Perseverance in faith is the evidence that we’ve been made part of Christ. And when that perseverance doesn’t hold, then we were never in.”

“It’s assurance rooted in our confidence in an absolutely sovereign, covenant keeping God….”

This is erroneous because God sovereignly states His covenants are conditional. The new covenant is conditional upon us abiding in Christ, which dozens of New Testament scriptures say. See:

“Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

Only those who overcome, who didn’t defile their clothes will not have their names removed from the Book of Life (Rev. 3:1-6):

He who overcomes will be arrayed in white garments, and I will in no way blot his name out of the book of life…” (Rev. 3:5).

Update on Henry Gruver's condition

I met Henry three times when he was in Anchorage in the ’90s. My jaw dropped when he showed a few of us the amazing Ron Wyatt Discoveries video at ACC. Later, I saw him when he spoke in a nearby hotel, having had a bad experience in the local churches. We also did a group prayer walk.
Besides being known for prayer walking cities, he had an important series of dreams/visions of Russia and China invading the USA.

An update on Henry Gruver’s condition.

As many of you may have read on The Joseph Plan website Henry Gruver has been a friend and teacher of mine for many years. I have shared and learned a lot from Henry. Over the last month Henry has been deathly ill. He got sick while ministering in Toronto, Canada. The doctor said when Henry was admitted to the Toronto hospital that was within 1/2 hour of death.

The Scofield Bible – The Book That Made Zionists of America’s Evangelical Christians

The Scofield Bible—The Book That Made Zionists of America’s Evangelical Christians

By Maidhc Ó Cathail

“For a nation to commit the sin of anti-Semitism brings inevitable judgement.”

—The New Scofield Study Bible

Since it was first published in 1909, the Scofield Reference Bible has made uncompromising Zionists out of tens of millions of Americans. When John Hagee, the founder of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), said that “50 million evangelical bible-believing Christians unite with five million American Jews standing together on behalf of Israel,” it was the Scofield Bible that he was talking about.
Although the Scofield Reference Bible contains the text of the King James Authorized Version, it is not the traditional Protestant bible but Cyrus I. Scofield’s annotated commentary that is problematic. More than any other factor, it is Scofield’s notes that have induced generations of American evangelicals to believe that God demands their uncritical support for the modern State of Israel.

(vid) Reacting To Jordan B. Peterson "Am I Christian?"

Jordan doesn’t even believe in the resurrection.
However, Christianity isn’t just belief in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. It’s abiding in Christ, walking according to the Spirit and not according to the flesh.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT” (Romans 8:1).

It’s clear by Jordan’s frequent use of profane language alone that he willfully walks according to the flesh, not submitting to the Holy Spirit.

(3 min vid) Boshoff: Christians in Name Only — "I was also like that in a senior management position, doing very well for myself, but I changed. Very soon I was called in by my boss and he asked me what was wrong; I was not the fun guy any more. I was working harder than ever but I did not participate in the parties, bribes…" • "You will be tested and you will be tried. Only those who overcome, stay  faithful to Jesus and endure with Him until the end will be saved"

Transcript:

Most people are Christians in Name only. They are not following nor living for Jesus. They are not born again, they are just religious and fooling themselves, comparing themselves with themselves and with other fake Christians.

I was also like that but many years ago the Holy Spirit convicted me and opened my eyes to my foolishness. I decided to live for Jesus and to obey Him and immediately I changed. I was in corporate business, in a senior management position, doing very well for myself and the business, but I changed. Very soon I was called in by my boss and he asked me what was wrong with me, I was not the fun guy any more. I was working harder than ever but I did not participate in the parties, bribes  and customer entertainment any more.  I was told that I had changed too much and my boss demanded that I immediately resign and leave the company premises.

We were faithful, active church members, but  I did not fit in with the church any more. I recognized all the falseness and worldliness in the church and when I started talking about it the pastor asked me to leave the church.

If you really follow Jesus and live to please Him, you do not fit in with the world any more. Friends leave you and closest family reject you. You become parsona non grata, unwanted and unacceptable. If you fit into the kingdom of heaven, you fit out of this world.

Not many people followed Jesus. He chose twelve disciples and one of them betrayed Him, with a kiss. To follow Jesus is a lonely road. You will be rejected, persecuted and hated by the sinners, epecially by the false Christians and the religious hypocrites. What they did to Jesus, they will do to you also, if you truly follow Jesus.

If you obey Jesus, repent and be baptized in water, live holy and righteously, He will give His Holy Spirit in you to teach and guide you every step of the way, but you have to stay with Him.

You will be tested and you will be tried. Only those who overcome, stay  faithful to Jesus and  endure with Him until the end,  will be saved.

Are you a true follower of Jesus or are you  a Christian in name only?

May Jesus bless you.

WITNESS FOR JESUS!
