Frequently Asked Questions about the End Time Gospel FAQ

Living Word Broadcast - End Time Gospel FAQ Question: Is it possible for a person to lose his or her salvation? I was leaning on the idea that it I could not however find a verse in scripture to support my claim. In fact I found a scripture that suggested that it is possible to lose salvation.

Answer:

John 15:6 "If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned." (NIV)
JUDE 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

ôSomebody says, "How does Divine healing... Is it... Does it last all the time?" It lasts just as long as faith lasts. And salvation lasts the same way, just as long as faith lasts. When you feel that you're not saved any more, you're not saved. For it's by faith are you saved through grace. Is that right? When you come to the altar, what do you do? You confess your sins and ask God to forgive you. And then, in your heart... Now get it! In your heart, you have to believe that He has forgiven you. Is that right? You have to believe that. Then you walk away from the platform. And then you have to confess it first, that you are saved. You can't just keep it under a bushel; you'll lose it right now. You've got to confess it and tell everyone that you're glad. Now, what if you walk outside and somebody says, "There's nothing to it; you just got excited at the altar." [Ministry Explained Minneapolis, MN 50-0711]

Now, if you--if it goes away from you, and what if you go out feeling better? You get amongst unbelievers where all them unbelieving spirits are, they get on you down in your heart; and the first thing you know, you can't hear again, or you can't see again. I've seen men that was totally blind read this Bible, this same Bible; and come back two nights later, couldn't see how to get in the tent. Couldn't you believe you can lose your salvation, backslide from God? So can you the healing. You see? Same way. You got to keep your faith and in God. Amen. Have faith and don't doubt and you'll get well. And associate with people who believe and God will bless you. [Being Led By The Holy Spirit Karlsruhe, GR 55-0819]

A fellow by the name of Dr. Church, a Methodist; I never met him. He wrote a book, and he said, "Here's the reason I don't believe in William Branham." He said, "I met a man here sometime ago, that come from one of his meetings, that had prostate trouble." And said, "He went over there, and William Branham told him, and prayed for him, and said, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD, you're healed.'" And said, "I met the man a year later, and I ask him, 'What about that?' He said, 'Well, Mr. Church,' he said, 'I was healed for about six or eight months, and you know the thing come back on me again.' So that showed that William Branham is false." And the same man, over a camp meeting every year, get that bunch of Nazarenes and Pilgrim Holiness up there, that backslid during the year and claim that they were saved at the altar. That's right. Brother, healing is just as long as faith holds out and so is salvation. You can be saved tonight and lost next week. And you can be healed tonight and crippled again tomorrow, sick again tomorrow. The doctor can go over here, and put a patient in the hospital, put him under a oxygen tent, and give him penicillin for pneumonia, and day after tomorrow pronounce him sound and well, and next Wednesday he could die of pneumonia. Is that right? That wasn't a sign he wasn't healed, certainly not. The Bible said, "When the unclean spirit's gone out of a man, he walks in dry places, seeking rest...?... And the first thing you know, he goes and gets seven other devils, and comes back, enters in by force." If the good man of the house isn't standing there to war him out, he will come in and be worse than he was the first place. So if you accept your salvation, put the barriers of the Blood of Jesus Christ before the door. They can't step in that. [Separation From Unbelief, Phoenix, AZ 55-0228]

I'd like to see how many of those Nazarenes that got sanctified one year, the next year was back for sanctification again. I thought He kept it; I thought you couldn't back... Oh, brother. Some men so narrow-minded, you put a pencil between their eyes it'd blind them. That's right, so narrow- sighted... Sure. Salvation is--lasts as long as faith lasts. And Divine healing lasts as long as faith lasts. You that's got to experience, forty years ago; forget you ever had the experience, and go out of here tonight and say, "I don't even believe in it, and I'm not God's servant no more," watch how long your experience lasts. Certainly. "When the unclean spirit's gone out of man, he walks in dry places; he comes back with seven other spirits worse than he was. He enters in by force, if the good man of the house ain't there to keep him out. "You don't go by your feelings. I never was saved by my feelings. I wasn't saved because I felt good. I'm saved because I met God's promise. That's right. The devil can beat you around the stump on feelings, but he can't speak on THUS SAITH THE LORD and condemn it. I've done what Jesus said. I'm saved tonight because I met God's requirement. I'm healed tonight. [The Inter Veil Sturgis, MI 56-0121]
