The believer has eternal security, but the believer's assurance may lack from time to time due to doubts and fleshly living.
Romans 8, John 6

Webster defines 'fear' as the 'distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, or pain.' Who or what we fear control what we do in life. As believers in Jesus Christ we are to 'conduct ourselves in fear.' Fear of who or what? Many today live in the fear of man. What others think or do controls them. But the fear of man is a trap for it does not produce the intended results. As believers we are to live in the fear of the Lord. Theologians define it as 'reverential trust or awe.' But is the fear of the Lord more than that? Have we taken the fear out of the fear of the Lord? Peter says we shouuld be a little bit of afraid of God for two reasons. First,, as our heavenly Father who loves us He will also discipline us. He does so that we might partake in His holiness. And secondly, as an impartial judge, God will hold us accountable for our words and actions. One day we will give an account to the Lord for the things we've said and done. That in an d of itself should make us a little fearful. Not afraid of losing our salvation, but rather afraid of losing our rewards should move us to live in the fear of the Lord!
This message is the second message on this all important truth concerning the justified sinner's resurrection based on their ONENESS with Christ and the comfort and security such knowledge brings to their lives while in this "present, evil world."
CURRENT EVENTS UPDATE: (1) We discuss the implications of Ohio voters approving issues to (a) enshrine the murder of unborn children in our state Constitution and, (b) legalizing recreation marijuana and further embracing this end times Sorcery predicted in the Bible. (2) We update the situation in Israel and Gaza as the Biden Administration begins to set themselves in opposition to Israel's post-war security plans as Anti-Israel, Anti-Semitism spreads worldwide... and only Donald Trump is calling for the only policy that can save America from becoming Denmark (Islamicized, chaotic state).
In our study, we discuss this passage that says that Christians were "chosen to salvation" but it's not on the bases of some sort of "election" or "predestination" as taught by Calvinists, Augustinians and other "Sovereign Grace" doctrines of divine fatalism.
