GOD DOES NOT CHANGE: The Once saved, Always Saved Trick?

YHVH the Elohim of Israel does not change and apparently, neither do people. They questioned God's way of thinking in ancient times and still think they know better. Somehow people think the work of the Messiah, made what God says below into a lie. In fact what Yeshua (Jesus) did was PAY a price of his life to fulfill it, making what God said below in Ezekiel, legally possible.

EZEKIEL 33

13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.

14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;

15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.

16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.

18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

** Here is the mental trick that would make the Words of God above no longer true. If you say something is cooked, then look at it next week and it is Raw, then it never was cooked in the first place. If you say some one was saved and next week he admits he is not saved, you will say he was never saved in the first place. If a child is born, how can it become unborn? They do not understand that Yeshua (Jesus) is the first born from the dead and we only become partaker of his born again experience; until we also become born from the dead. That is until the resurrection and our bodies and self is changed to be made just like him. As humans we are generally first born of the water, as we see in hospitals, but later we must be born of the Spirit and become like the wind. Then we will be saved always! There is no going back after that. Death will have no more dominion over any one that completes that process. This is also shown in the first general resurrection.

HEREIN is the truth: DEATH is the mortal enemy. You are not truly saved, until you are made immortal. That is you are able to be lost, until this corruptible shall have put on in-corruption and this mortal (person) shall have put on immortality. When that takes place death will be swallowed up into victory.

This means as an analogy; that people ship wrecked and in the ocean for many hours could be headed for death, but upon seeing at a distance the Coast Guard ship coming to them, THEY ALL can scream, "WE ARE SAVED", and we would understand what they mean. But in actuality, they still must stay afloat; avoid conflicts and sharks. They must endure until the end in order to finish the salvation process.

So even the question or statement used to cause people to think of once saved always saved or just the word saved; can be used as a deception if we use it differently than the Bible does. It is ok for the people in the water upon approach by the Coast Guard (by faith seeing the end result) to holler, in a figure of speech that all understand; "We are saved. However, if they begin to tell people in the water, that there is nothing that they can do to make themselves lost (dead), then they are prophesying an error; endangering the people in the water and truly need to repent of that falsehood.

We suppose to have the attitude of the Apostle Paul below:

PHILIPPIANS CHAPTER 3:

8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

So God and his Word do not change. The person that turns from doing right, God will not allow his past righteousness to save him. And the person that turns from unrighteousness to do what God loves, YHVH God and his Son Yeshua (Jesus) will not allow his past to hold him or her back from salvation. Those sins will not be a consideration any longer. Depart from false doctrine! God does not change.
