Benefits from God (Ps. 103:3-7)

by admin

Benefits from God (Psalm 103:3-7) Mike Johnson Speaking about God, Psalm 103:3-7 says, “Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  The Lord […]

Five Steps to Peace (Ps. 37:3-8)

Five Steps to Peace (Psalm 37:3-8) Mike Johnson “Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb (Ps. 37:1-2).” When we think of the word “fret,” we may think of someone who is continuously […]

Make a Joyful Shout! (Ps.100)

by admin

MAKE A JOYFUL SHOUT! (Psalm 100) Mike Johnson A very well known and oft-quoted poem, Psalm 100 centers on worshiping and knowing God. Although it contains only five verses, the psalm has essential and relevant information. Some think David is the author, although there is uncertainty. The speculation is that the Jews used this psalm […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 01 (Introduction)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (1) (Introduction) Mike Johnson Consider this question.  Can one who has been born again, i.e., one who has entered into a proper relationship with God, conduct himself in such a way to be eternally lost?  Many say one cannot.  They hold a doctrine known by such names as “Once Saved, Always […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 04 (2 Peter 1:5-11)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (4) (II Peter 1:5-11) Mike Johnson It would be incorrect to say these verses do not apply to a Christian. Peter is speaking “to those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of God and Savior Jesus Christ” (1:1). He says further they had received all things […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 05 (John 15:1-5)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (5) (John 15:1-6) Mike Johnson John 15:1-6  records the Parable of the Vine and the Branches.  It says:   I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 06 (Acts 8:5-25)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (6) (Acts 8:5-25) Mike Johnson Many passages teach that a child of God can fall from grace.   Among them is Acts 8:5-25, which describes the conversion of the people of Samaria and a sorcerer named Simon.  Many responded to Philip’s preaching and became Christians.  Verse 12 says they believed, and Philip […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 02 (Galatians 5:1-4))

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (2) (Galatians 5:4) Mike Johnson   Can a child of God fall from grace?  Galatians 5:4 plainly says to those who are Christians that they can fall from grace.   It seems some were teaching it was necessary to obey certain aspects of the old law to be saved, such as circumcision.   […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 07 (1 Corinthians 10:12)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (7) (I Corinthians 10:12) Mike Johnson Many teach that once a person becomes a Christian, he cannot possibly be lost. This doctrine is known as “Once Saved, Always Saved,” “The Impossibility of Apostasy,” and “The Perseverance of the Saints.”  This teaching is contrary to many passages in God’s Word; among these […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 03 (2 Peter 2:20-22)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (3) (II Peter 2:20-22) Mike Johnson II Peter 2 describes particular false teachers.  Not only did they teach false doctrine (v. 1),  but they were very immoral.  Please read the entire chapter for a full description of these ungodly people. There is no doubt they were, at the time of this […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 08 (1 Corinthians 9:27)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (8) (I Corinthians 9:27) Mike Johnson In this series, we have been looking at passages that show the possibility of apostasy.  Many passages teach that a child of God can fall from grace. Among them is 1 Corinthians 9:27, which says, “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 11 (Hebrews 6:4-6)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (11) (Hebrews 6:4-6) Mike Johnson Many passages teach that a child of God can fall from grace. One such passage is in Hebrews 6:1-3. Here, the writer urges certain ones (who he had characterized earlier as “babes” in Christ- v. 13), to “go on unto perfection.” He wanted them to become mature; […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 12 (Hebrews 10:26-31)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (12) (Hebrews 10:26-31) Mike Johnson We are continuing to examine passages which show the possibility of apostasy.  Consider a very familiar context in the book of Hebrews.  Hebrews 10:26 says,   “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for […]

The Possibility of Apostasy 13 (James 5:19-20)

by admin

The Possibility of Apostasy (13) (James 5:19-20) Mike Johnson James 5:19-20 says, “Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.” He is […]
