(Galatians 2:16 ASV) What About

Not By Works Works? Boastfulfor by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not of works, that no man should glory. (Ephesians 2:8-9 ASV) who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before times eternal, (2 Timothy 1:9 ASV)

What About Works? Not By Works DeadWherefore leaving the doctrine of the first principles of Christ, let us press on unto perfection; not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, (Hebrews 6:1 ASV) What About Works? By Works

Of RighteousnessAnd Peter opened his mouth and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is acceptable to him. (Acts 10:34-35 ASV) What About Works? By Works Faith PerfectedEven so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself. Yea, a man will say, Thou hast faith, and I

have works: show me thy faith apart from thy works, and I by my works will show thee my faith. Thou believest that God is one; thou doest well: the demons also believe, and shudder. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith apart from works is barren? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son upon the altar? What About By Works Faith Perfected- Works? Thou seest that faith wrought with his works,

and by works was faith made perfect; and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of God. Ye see that by works a man is justified, and not only by faith. And in like manner was not also Rahab the harlot justified by works, in that she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead. (James 2:17-26 ASV) What About

By Works Works? Faith Perfectedcf. Romans 1:5; 6:3-5, 17, 18; Galatians 5:6; He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned. (Mark 16:16 ASV) What About By Works Works? GodsThey said therefore unto him, What must we do, that we may work the works of

God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:28-29 ASV) What About By Works Works? GoodEven so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:16 ASV)

having your behavior seemly among the Gentiles; that, wherein they speak against you as evil-doers, they may by your good works, which they behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. (1 Peter 2:12 ASV) What About By Works Works? GoodFor we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared

that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10 ASV) Faithful is the saying, and concerning these things I desire that thou affirm confidently, to the end that they who have believed God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men: (Titus 3:8 ASV) What About By Works Works? Be Judged ByFor the Son of man shall come in the glory of his

Father with his angels; and then shall he render unto every man according to his deeds. (Matthew 16:27 ASV) but glory and honor and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek: (Romans 2:10 ASV) What About By Works Works? Be Judged ByAnd I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne; and books were

opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of the things which were written in the books, according to their works. (Revelation 20:12 ASV) Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right to come to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city. (Revelation 22:14 ASV) What About Which TermsWorks? of Salvation Are Of Man?

Belief? They said therefore unto him, What must we do, that we may work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:28-29 ASV) What About Which TermsWorks? of Salvation Are Of Man?

Repentance? And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil which he said he would do unto them; and he did it not. (Jonah 3:10 ASV) What About Which TermsWorks? of Salvation Are Of Man? Confession? Every one therefore who shall confess

me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32 ASV) What About Which TermsWorks? of Salvation Are Of Man? Baptism? The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men? answer me. (Mark 11:30 ASV) And I knew him not: but he that sent me to

baptize in water, he said unto me, Upon whomsoever thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and abiding upon him, the same is he that baptizeth in the Holy Spirit. (John 1:33 ASV) What About Which TermsWorks? of Salvation Are Of Man? Baptism? And all the people when they heard, and the publicans, justified God, being

baptized with the baptism of John. But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected for themselves the counsel of God, being not baptized of him. (Luke 7:29-30 ASV) What About Works? Impossible To Earn Salvation! Earn- Equal reward for equal work. What did Jesus do to do the work of god?

We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. (John 9:4 ASV) For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. (John 6:38 ASV) What About Impossible To Earn Salvation! Works? Earn- Equal reward for equal work.

I glorified thee on the earth, having accomplished the work which thou hast given me to do. (John 17:4 ASV) And he was parted from them about a stone's cast; and he kneeled down and prayed, saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. (Luke 22:41-42 ASV) What About Works?

Impossible To Earn Salvation! Earn- Equal reward for equal work. When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up his spirit. (John 19:30 ASV) What About Works? How Do We Do The Work of God? Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of

my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 7:21 ASV) What About Works? Can We Boast? Where then is the glorying? It is excluded. By what manner of law? of works? Nay: but by a law of faith. (Romans 3:27 ASV) What About But who is there of you, having a servant

Works? plowing or keeping sheep, that will say unto him, when he is come in from the field, Come straightway and sit down to meat; and will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank the servant because he did the things that were commanded? Even so ye also, when ye shall have done all the things that are commanded

you, say, We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which it was our duty to do. (Luke 17:7-10 ASV) What Does Gods Word Say About Salvation? Hear- Romans 10:17 Luke 11:28 Romans 1:16 Believe John 3:16 John 8:24 Mark 16:16 Repent Acts 2:38

Luke 13:3 Acts 3:19 le Bib Confess Romans10:10 Matthew 10:32 Acts 8:37 Baptized 1stPeter3:21 Mark 16:16 Acts 22:16

Remain Faithful 116 Revelation 2:10 b Once a person is obedient to the Gospel, Heard (Rom. 10:17), Believed (Mark 16:16), Confessed (Acts 8:37), Repented of the sins they have committed, and is Baptized for the remission of those sins (Acts 2:38), they are a Christian and saved from the fire of hell. But, we read that we must remain faithful unto death (Rev. 2:10.)

Why? Do we have to be concerned about sinning after we are saved? These verses say we do! Col. 1:21-23; 2 Tim. 2:16- 18; Heb. 3:12-19; 2 Pet. 2:1; Heb.5:8, 9; Jam.2:24, 26; John 15:1-6; 1 John 2:24;

Rom. 14:13, 15; Gal. 5:4; Heb. 6:4:8; Heb. 10:26- 31; Jam. 5:19, 20; 1 Pet. 5:8; 2 Pet. 2:20- 22; Rev. 3:5 & 20:15. Passages wrongly applied to say that once you are saved you are always saved. John 10:27, 28;

John 14:19; Romans 5:20, 21; Romans 6:23; Rom. 8:1; Rom. 8:38, 39; 1 Cor.10:13; Ephesians 1:13, 14; 2 Tim 1:12; Heb. 6:19; Heb. 12:6; Heb. 13:5; 1 Pet. 1:4, 5;

1 John 2:19; 1 John 3:9; Psalm 97:10. The Bible teaches a Christian can lose their salvation and be condemned to eternal damnation, if on the day of judgment if they have any un-repented, unconfessed, unforgiven sins which they have committed after they are saved. Join Us At:
