Good Morning all. I have been busy doing some videos but that is no excuse for not writing. Yesterday in bible study, we are studying salvation. Can one lose salvation? And if one can lose salvation, did they ever really have it? We went to an in depth study about this. You should go and check out the video on it. But today, I want to look at something that in my husband and I's bible study that we read. We were reading Ezekiel 18. This talks about who is responsible for sin. Is the dad responsible for the son? Is the son responsible for the dad? God tells them no. He judges each one on their own accord but let's look at something. This will be a long scripture but it is well worth the read. Please let me know your thoughts! Ezekiel 18:19-32 " Yet you say, "Why should the son not bear the guilt of the father? Because the son has done what is lawful and right, and has kept all My statutes and observed them, he shall surely live. The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? says the Lord God, and not that he should turn from his ways and live? But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die. Yet you say; The way of the Lord is not fair. Hear now, O house of Israel; is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive. Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. Yet the house of Israel says, The way of the Lord is not fair? O house of Israel, is it not My ways which are fair, and your ways which are not fair? Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, everyone according to his ways, says the Lord God. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies, says the Lord God. Therefore turn and live!" Now that was long. But look at it. If a wicked man turns from sin, he lives. If a righteous man turns from righteousness, he dies. What either done before is not remembered. What do you think? Can one lose their salvation? Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
