This was the Sunday evening message from Princess Chapel Church in Ashland, KY by the Pastor, Douglas Salyer.
This point is the fifth point of the TULIP. This message text was taken from the New Testament book of Romans 8:28-30, along with several other verses, showing the biblical truths of the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints in that how it is all tied in with Sovereign election.
The title of this message was, 'SALVATION 101-F - PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS.'
Our security, our perseverance, and our preservation is not determined upon us. It was settled in the eternal counsels of Heaven in old eternity. Before the foundation of the world, in the dateless past, before the world began, God chose a people for Himself according in the kind intentions of His own will ‚Äď and He works all things according the counsel of His own will.
The perseverance/perseveration or security of the Saints is rooted in the perseverance of the work of the Good Shepherd and not in the deeds of the sheep. It is the biblical teaching that God's elect upon regeneration will believe in Christ and repent; they are held secure by God's working power of grace despite the temptation of their own flesh and sin. Their salvation is secure and they can will never be lost, or unborn again, or lose God's gracious gift purchased by His Son the LORD Jesus. Christ will hold fast to all He has redeemed. (See John 10:27-30).
