Not All Christians Are “Saved”

So who is saved? Let us go to Scripture. The man on stage may be wrong. I won’t want to be as wrong as he is. We live in the age of Laodicea. The man on stage may be lukewarm. But we are hot, or we are cold, we are neither, mishpocha.

A Brief Commentary Of Paul’s Passage (1 Tasloniqim 5)

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8

Read here.

1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

I am about to give evidence here that those who are awake in the day and not asleep in the night are not Christians. Case in point, let us go through this checklist and I will tell you who those favored believers are.

  1. He is well familiar that the day of the Lord shall be like a thief in the night. He is not a date setter.
  2. He does not cry from the pulpit that “everything is gonna be fine, prosper and take gains!” He shall not spread false peace and false security. Beware of those wolves. For Paul said, sudden destruction will come upon the liars. Zechariah 5 reveals the mystery of the flying scroll, the Torah of the Lord that shall appear in the last years, catching the thieves and the liars by His Law.
  3. He does not walk in darkness. Therefore, he follows the Lord as Eashoa makes this promise in John 8:12. I AM the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”  Do all Christians walk in the light as He is in the light? Scripture works not in isolation like a sushi menu. Scripture works in tandem. The Emissary John, the Revelator, reveals this truth.
  4. He shall not be overtaken by the day as when a thief is caught on camera. He shall not conduct a part of his secret life. He shall walk among the warriors who will hold him accountable and help each other to stay on the plan.
  5. He is watchful and he stays sober of intoxication of the physical, such as booze and drugs, sober from the spiritual, as the occult, witchcraft, the deep things of satan and wicca garbage as reading the horoscopes and playing with gambit.
  6. He faces the world with faith in Moshiach, and love by the Ruwach. It is his breastplate. Paul alluded that he is a priest of Elohiym, as in the days of the Tabernacle, the Kohen Gadol wore a breastplate of righteousness where it was adorned with twelve stones.
  7. He is a soldier in active deployment. His helmet is one of salvation. Together he walks in faith, hope and love.

So what do we call a man who fits the seven points above? He is a faithful believer. He believes strongly in the Moshiach and His promise to come as He says,

John 14

1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

He is either a restored Israelite, one who comes from the House of Israel, as a scattered seed in the wind born out of the diaspora. But now he is in the Aliyah, the Ingathering to the House of Israel.

He may be the Gentile who came to Christ, to hold Him high as Lord and Savior, Kinsman Redeemer who comes to marry the Bride of Christ, that she may have a part in the inheritance of His Father.
