Can a Christian Lose their Salvation?
(Can a Christian Reject Living Under Christ's Reign on His New Earth?)
A common question is, 'Can a Christian Lose their Salvation?' I believe the question should be, 'Can a Christian reject living on the New Earth, where Christ is ruling as King? Could a person be forced to live on Yahweh's New Earth where he would refuse to bow to Christ? Could a person, who, at one time, chose to make Yahoshua their Master (Lord), agreeing to love Yahweh and his neighbor as himself, who entered into a covenant relationship with Yahweh and Christ, becoming a son of Yahweh but now has changed his mind, defying Yahweh and Christ, rejecting Christ's Lordship, choosing rather to die an age-abiding death? Let us reexamine the scriptures and the freedom of will mankind has been given. We must first, temporarily, set aside what we have been taught outside of Yahweh's Word and lay our foundation upon only the Word of Yahweh and not upon the doctrines of men.
(The majority of all people who serve Yahweh and Christ (Christians) and the people who know nothing of Christ or Yahweh but have chosen to bow to the Creator, loving him and their neighbor as themselves, will live their lives in righteousness, repenting, restoring and asking for forgiveness when they do sin. These people are not part of this article. These people do not live in fear of losing their relationship with Yahweh, their Father, because they are seekers of righteousness, willing to bow to him by deeds of righteousness. They keep their covenant with Yahweh and Christ. This article is addressing the very few individuals who entered into a covenant relationship with Christ, making him their Master, they being his servant but have broken their covenant, rejecting his lordship, ending their lives in rebellion against Yahweh and Christ, refusing to bow to them in word or deeds.)
Reviewing Yahweh's Narrative-The New Earth will be our Home
We have been born into a world where the adversary has blinded the world for 6,000 years. We have all been deceived and are now deceived; I am talking about the Christian Church. How many of us were raised with going to heaven but heard nothing about the New Earth? We have been living in a fantasy world, which is not in the word of Yahweh. Genesis 1:1 begins with the Earth (Garden of Eden) and the book of Revelation ends on the New Earth. Heaven is not our home but the Earth. People did not ask Yahoshua, 'What must I do to inherit Heaven but rather, Life Age-Abiding!' We have been taught that the last book in the Old Covenant is Malachi, when it is 2 Chronicles; that the woman caught in adultery happened; that Mary was a virgin all of her life; that all men have an immortal soul; that man is a spirit that has a soul and lives in a body; that we do not die but just change addresses, etc. etc. We have been taught that we do not die but rather go to Purgatory, Hell or Heaven upon death. Our Bible translations, seminaries and pastors deceive us. Yahweh commanded, "Ye shall not add unto the word which, I, am commanding you, neither shall ye take away therefrom,—that ye may keep the commandments of Yahweh your God, which, I, am commanding you" (Deu. 4:2). What Hebrew words are they referring to when they say, Hell, Trinity, Mother of God, Incarnation, Immortal Soul, God-man, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit? Did not the Apostle write, "If anyone is announcing unto you a glad-message aside from that which ye accepted, accursed, let him be" (Gal. 1:9)!
Why should we be surprised that these institutions have been deceiving us, when the people who murdered Christ and the prophets were the children of Israel, High Priests, Scribes and Pharisees. Our perception of Yahweh's narrative is wrong, as our worldly perception, in many cases, is also wrong. The sun does not rise or set but rather the Earth rotates. Elevators do not bring us down but rather controls our fall through the elevator shaft. Where, in the Word of Yahweh, is the statement that men have an immortal soul; never dying only changing their addresses? Where are the dead, now? According to the Word of Yahweh, they are in Sheol, awaiting their resurrection from the Earth; "and, many of the sleepers in the dusty ground, shall awake,—these, shall be to age-abiding life, but, those, to reproach, and age-abiding abhorrence" (Dan. 12:2); "Thy dead, shall come to life again, My dead body, they shall arise,—Awake and shout for joy, ye that dwell in the dust, For, a dew of light, is thy dew, And, earth, to the shades, shall give birth" (Is. 26:19); "But we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them who are falling asleep...the dead in Christ, shall rise, first" (1 Thes. 4:13-18). Why haven't we been taught about Sheol?
Yahweh made mankind for the Earth and not for Heaven. The only man in Heaven is Christ Yahoshua. All men are on Earth, dead or alive, awaiting Christ's return to rule his future kingdom, which will be on the Earth. The first Adam began in Paradise (Garden of Eden); mankind lost Paradise; the last Adam Regained Paradise, where he will rule. Yahweh proclaimed this truth in Psalm 2:7-9, when he stated, "... My son, thou art, I, today, have begotten thee: Ask of me, and let me give nations as thine inheritance, and, as thy possession, the ends of the Earth: Thou shalt shepherd them with a sceptre of iron,—as a potter’s vessel, shalt thou dash them in pieces" (Ps. 2:7-9). Man is a terrestrial being and not a celestial being. Death is not our friend, who releases our immortal soul into Heaven to live on a cloud with all of our family members who have gone before us. Who needs a resurrected body when billions of people have been living in heaven without them for thousands of years. They have bodies, anyway! Did not Peter see the bodies of Moses and Elijah on the mount? They have their bodies; who needs a resurrection!
