And when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it,(Luke 2:43)
Today we will start looking at what causes people to loose their salvation. I know this may be strange to hear but there is a great number of people who fell along the way and gave up on Christianity even in biblical times.
For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.(2 Timothy 4:10)
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.(Revelations 2:1-4)
These scriptures who us that people do forsake the faith for one reason or the other. Ladies and gentlemen we first need to understand that forsaking the faith is not the same as leaving church, you first leave the faith before you stop going to church. That’s why we have people who go to church but are still living in sin.
This message is for those who notice that their zeal for God is going down. We will look at how to regain your salvation.
