The crippled woman and your salvation.

Luke 13:11
11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.

I saw a note that says no where in the bible does it say we are once saved always saved. I was stunned as this came from a person purportedly teaches grace.

The Bible is NOT silent towards the assurance you are once saved always saved. There are many of such promises and indications. While we don’t have time to share all the verses we can give you an example of one.

Hebrews 7:25
25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Here is the same verse in the KJV

Hebrews 7:25
” Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

The word “uttermost” here do not mean “Jesus will do his best to save us”. Rather it means full ended, completely, entirely.

The Greek “pantelth” comes from 2 words. “Pas” and “Telos”.

Pas means “every way, whole, all encompassing”.

Telos denotes “the final point of a destination”.

Put together it simply means “an all encompassing guarantee you will reach your destination.”

The other occurrence of the use of this word appears here.

Luke 13:11
11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.

“Could not straighten AT ALL”.

It is used to describe her condition of many years, she was completely bent over. It was a irreversible condition but for the grace of Jesus.

It also tells that our salvation is irreversible because Jesus is our saviour and the high priest of our salvation.

Be at peace.
