LOST BELIEVERS 1 (E.C. Moore)
“5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 2 Corinthians 13:5
Lost believers: Those who falsely believe they are saved. They certainly believe/have believed in something, but whatever it is, it didn’t/doesn’t save them.
Rejection of the resurrection:
The gospel of the grace of God/The Gospel of Christ:
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;”
“12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. ” 1 Corinthians 15
Jesus Christ, in his earthly ministry to the nation Israel, speaking to the jews;
“30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 ¶ They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:30-44
Did they believe on him? The scriptures says they did, and He spoke unto them that believed on him, that’s what He said. Notice in verse 44; what He said unto them after this argument. He said; ” Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth(…)” etc. They are lost… Believers, yes, but lost…
If you check yourself out according to the scripture, and you don’t come up to the qualifications and the standards for a saved individual in the scripture, then you’re a reprobate. What do you believe?! Do you really believe with all your heart, that Jesus Christ did in fact pay for ALL your sins?
“18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-21
“6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6
“15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15
When Jesus Christ died, all your sins were in the future. Do you honestly believe that your sins were transferred to Calvary and that God made his Son to be sin for you? And that he punished his Son for your sins?
Is there anything that you could do, whereby you would not be saved? You who say you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, is there any sin, that can be put to your account now? If you really believe that, then you don’t believe that he paid for all of them….
“31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.” Romans 8:31-33
Who is there that can lay anything to the charge of those that God chose in Christ before the foundation of the world?! Jesus Christ died for them at Calvary, they believe on him as their Lord and Saviour, who is there that can charge them for their sins?
God knew,before the foundation of the world, every individual that would believe on Christ as their Lord and Saviour. He didn’t predestinate you to trust Christ as your Saviour, but he did foreknow if you will trust him as your Lord and Saviour.
“28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Romans 8:28-29
Who did he predestinate? Those that he did foreknow. He did NOT predestinate someone to be saved, and someone to go to hell. Everyone that he foreknew, what did he know about them, beforehand? He knew that they would hear that Christ died for their sins, was buried and that God raised Him, and that they would believe that and trust the Lord with all their heart.
As many as “he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren”
“24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24
God is a spirit, Jesus Christ is in the image of the Father. One day we that believe on Christ will be in the image of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that we will be like him. God predestined it to be so.
“23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” Romans 3:23-28
“33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.” Romans 8:33
If God justified someone, then God cannot see sin in that individual’s life. Why? The sins that he commits was imputed to Christ. The sin that he’ll commit tomorrow, Christ paid for in A.D 33. Every sin that he could ever do, Christ paid for!
“9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?(…)” 1 Corinthians 6:9
Who are the righteous?
“21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:” Romans 3:21-22
The righteousness of God is imputed to those that believe on the Lord Jesus Christ based upon HIS faith and HIS work at Calvary.
You either trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, or you don’t trust him as your lord and Saviour. If you are confessing your sins every day trying to gain yourself salvation by doing so, you don’t trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! If you think your salvation depends on that, it wouldn’t be of grace:
“6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” Romans 11:6
Why don’t you come clean and admit that? What are you afraid of?
If you believe with all your heart, then you’re not afraid that your sins may be imputed to you.
“9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-12
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith…
A lot of people today believe in Jesus Christ and they are not saved. They have not committed their salvation unto the Lord and quit fooling with it. They’re still trying to gain it themselves. I hope that isn’t you….
