DADDY ADEBOYE SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT: ONCE SAVED IS NOT FOREVER SAVED
MANY PREACHERS WHO SAY SALVATION BY GRACE ALLOWS YOU DO WHAT YOU LIKE AND MAKE HEAVEN ARGUE THAT I HAVE NOT STUDIED PAUL, THE APOSTLE OF GRACE
I STUDIED PAUL BECAUSE I WANT TO BE LIKE HIM!
ONCE SAVED IS FOREVER SAVED PROVIDED YOU TAKE HEED LEST YOU FALL ACCORDING TO PAUL
WHEN YOU ARE STAYING ON THE ROCK, YOUR FUTURE IS SECURED
– Pastor E. A. Adeboye on “FROM MIRY CLAY TO THE ROCK TO STAY” RCCG HOLY GHOST CONGRESS 2023 Divine Repositioning Day 2 Evening Service 5th December, 2023 || Part C
Now we’ve come to part 2. I want you to fasten your seatbelt. There’s nothing as bad as being called ex- rich, ex-successful, ex-powerful.
It’s better never to have been on the Rock than to go back to the miry clay. So I pray for everyone of you in the name that is above every other name, you will never go back!
Let me remind you of the advantages of being on the Rock because He wants to reposition us out of the miry clay unto the rock to stay.
When you are staying on the rock, your future is secured. Matthew 7:24-27.
– In the name that is above every other name, everything you have achieved in life will last!
It’s one thing to be successful now, it’s another thing to succeed forever. When you are brought on the Rock, stay. Luke 20:17-18.
But you see, the devil who is the King of the miry clay is a very mischievous fellow. The moment you escape, he will do everything he can to bring you back …but he will fail in Jesus’ name!
There are many people all over the world now telling you that once you are saved, you are saved forever. Of course you can be saved forever provided you take heed. 1 Corinthians 10:12. The Almighty God who has kept me standing till now will keep you standing forever! There are so many preachers now all over the world telling you that since you are saved by grace (which is true), that you can now do whatever you like, that you will still make it to Heaven.
They said that people like me who tells you to take heed, they said we have not studied Paul. So I want to talk to you tonight – serious talk, father to children …because whether the devil likes it or not, because of what you are going to hear tonight and what you’re going to do tonight, I will see you in Heaven!
They said people like me, we didn’t study Paul. Ah! I studied Paul because when I became born again, I studied certain characters in the Bible, people I want to be like. I studied Elijah because I wanted power, hey, that man could pray and fire will fall. I studied Elijah for 3 solid years – private study. I studied Elisha and one of the people I studied was Paul. Why?
1. Paul was an academician. You know I’m coming from the academic world. He has a PhD in Law.
There’s a lot of relationship between Law and Mathematics – we deal in logic. Acts 19:11-12 – I said I am going to be like this boy (Paul). I determined when I was a very young Christian (that) by the time I leave this world, it will be recorded, “God performed special miracles by the hands of Adeboye so that from his body handkerchiefs and aprons were taken to the sick and they were all healed.” I thank God by now, only God knows how many testimonies. So I studied Paul more than these people who begin to tell us that if I had studied Paul I would have known that he is an Apostle of Grace and therefore I won’t be talking what I am talking. I studied Paul!
