…THERE IS A REMNANT ACCORDING TO THE ELECTION OF GRACE.

[Romans 11:5-11] Even so then at this present time also THERE IS A REMNANT ACCORDING TO THE ELECTION OF GRACE. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. BUT IF IT BE OF WORKS, THEN IT IS NO MORE GRACE: OTHERWISE WORK IS NO MORE WORK.

Note: let me interject a bit here for the sake of the followers of the New Emergent Messianic Judaism popularized by the “Back to the Hebrew Root” movement. The Lord made it perfectly clear that He protects “a remnant” of Israelis who discarded the teaching of Moses and accepted the Lord Jesus’ offer of salvation according to grace!

[7-8] What then? ISRAEL HATH NOT OBTAINED THAT WHICH HE SEEKETH FOR; BUT THE ELECTION HATH OBTAINED IT, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Note: Except for the “remnant” the rest of the Israelis “had not obtained” what they seek for: salvation through grace, which we, the “ELECTS” had obtained! However, the Israelis (the Chosen) cannot see the truth of God’s method of awarding salvation through grace, as they are “purposely” made blind by God given spirit of slumber! So they continue keeping Moses instruction (Torah) and celebrate the shadow of things to come not knowing that the substance had come to pass: “[Colossians 2:16-17] Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” BUT, we, the gentiles (goyim) HAVE NO SUCH BREAK as the Chosen People!

[11] I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall SALVATION IS COME UNTO THE GENTILES, FOR TO PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSY.

Note: They are allowed to fall to give room for us gentiles to obtain salvation, not through hard labor of burden which “no one” can bear:

[Act 15:5-11]  But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, THAT IT WAS NEEDFUL TO CIRCUMCISE THEM, AND TO COMMAND THEM TO KEEP THE LAW OF MOSES. And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter. And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.  And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. NOW THEREFORE WHY TEMPT YE GOD, TO PUT A YOKE UPON THE NECK OF THE DISCIPLES, WHICH NEITHER OUR FATHERS NOR WE WERE ABLE TO BEAR? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”

According to the last sentence of Romans 11:11 above…SALVATION IS COME UNTO THE GENTILES, FOR TO PROVOKE THEM TO JEALOUSY. How can we provoke them to jealousy when we discard God’s grace by emulating the Jews in their blindness? We are supposed to show God’s loving-kindness to us ward by removing the unbearable yoke which the Israelis are carrying; not to put on the yoke as they do!   

Matthews 24:3-5] And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”

The Lord Jesus Christ did forewarn us about deception in the last portion of the quoted passage above. Apostle Paul re-affirmed the same danger in 2Ti 3:13:  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

Let us firstly look at the fallacy of eternal salvation following after the teaching of John Calvin (Calvinism) which is preached by a lot of churches:

PAUL WASHER ON ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED – (CAN WE LOSE OUR SALVATION?)

Published by the creator or uploader of the following video on Jun 3, 2013

Update: To make things clear because i noticed a lot of discussion on “once saved always saved” topic… those that are truly saved are always saved…those that confess the faith but lose their faith later on ..never truly had a “real” salvation. I think there is a big misunderstanding with “losing salvation”. Simply put..when Christ saves a person..its for real…although there are those that “believe” they are saved but their fruits show a false belief and their faith fizzles out, even the demons believe. True salvation endures to the end!!

Hebrews 10:26 – For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins

CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF that at the time we prayed the sinners’ prayer and made confession of faith  [Romans 10:9-13] all of our sins past, present and “GET THIS, EVEN FUTURE” sins had, right away been forgiven!

However, if we look at the content of the GRAND COMMISSION, that is not absolutely true! Here is the complete command:

[Matthews 28:19-20]  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, BAPTIZING THEM in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Next, I am persuaded to share the topic of “Replacement Theology”! This deception springs from misquoted, misunderstood or may even be from the twisting of the following verses:

[Romans 11:17-19]  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. THOU WILT SAY THEN, THE BRANCHES WERE BROKEN OFF, THAT I MIGHT BE GRAFFED IN.”

Joel Rosenberg talks about the false teaching of replacement theology that has recently resurfaced in some mainstream churches.

Here is Part 2 which you can click to watch:

One deception leads to another and another until it culminated into the following other aberrant gospel:

PASTORS THAT ARE REALLY WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

You knew this day was going to come, when the liberal “love gospel” preachers who, desiring to fill their seats and bank accounts, would find a way to merge apostate Christianity with the Devil’s religion of Islam. That day is here.

Rick Warren with his new best friend, Christ rejector Cat Stevens, who changed his name to Yusef Isalm

IN 2009, Rick Warren, founder and pastor of Saddleback Community Church in Orange County California, addressed the convention of the Islamic Society of North America. Warren stated that Muslims and Christians must work together to combat stereotypes, promote peace and freedom, and solve global problems. Christians and Moslems – faith mates, soul mates and now work mates! Chrislam!

With all type of deceptions coming into the world scene, let me borrow Apostle Paul admonishment which says:

[Philippians 2:12e-15] …work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: THAT YE MAY BE BLAMELESS AND HARMLESS, THE SONS OF GOD, WITHOUT REBUKE, IN THE MIDST OF A CROOKED AND PERVERSE NATION, AMONG WHOM YE SHINE AS LIGHTS IN THE WORLD;
