I have quite a bit of evidence for who the beast is, and the woman who rides the beast from Revelation 17 in the Bible...and the mystery of God found at the bottom section of the blog. Please go here: http://www.meccasevenmountains.blogspot.com

Interesting,the spirtual aspect to Revelation makes more sense to me than a literal one. I will continue watching more of your videos. I appreciate your honesty thankyou. I have been so confused about salvation over the last 10 years. Maybe you could help me, like you I just want to find the truth. Can you lose your salvation?


Thank you for the kind comment and question. I have a couple of videos out on the subject, but in short yes you can lose your salvation. Many teach a doctrine of eternal security which means that you cannot lose salvation. Some, such as Calvinists, teach something that is called perserverance of the saints. This doctrine teaches that if a person falls away that they were never saved to begin with, they will perservere if saved. Neither of these teachings in my opinion are correct Biblically. There are a number of passages but 2nd Peter 2:20-22 should clear up any confusion. What I think is most important is the question are you saved now? The Bible states that by this we know that we know Him when we keep His commandments. Also the Bible teaches that a tree is known by it's fruit. No idolterer, adulterer, murderer, drunkard, fornicator, and the like will enter the kingdom of heaven the Bible teaches us. God is not the author of confusion. He does not want us not to know. The way is narrow my friend and I would not propigate a cheap salvation that is no salvation at all. Truth is that we must ask forgiveness and repent of our sin. Repent means be sorry enough to stop doing it. We must make Jesus the Lord and Master of our life and dedicate our life to following Him. There is no difference between Christian and disciple of Christ. God wants and longs for our repentance so that He may pardon us. Not that getting a heart of repentance is necessarily easy, but this is generally the easy part and requires no works on our part to be saved. Once saved though we are to take up our cross and follow Him daily. Even though the daily challenge is not easy the peace that the Lord Jesus gives makes His burden a light one! Choose to follow Him and stay true to Him. When your Lord commands you, obey Him, and He will be your Lord and Master. We are not perfect as in the holiness of God, but we must not commit sin unto spiritual death. The Bible teaches that there is a sin unto death and a sin not unto death. Yes, if we turn we can regain our salvation but this is not as easy as it sounds my friend. Once we have turned our back on the Lord it is not so easy to regain that true heart of repentance. Truly, we must pray that the Lord breaks our heart of stone and gives us a heart that longs again for Him. Hope this helps and thanks for joining the site. God bless!
