We have come to understand, through personal experience and this study, that not following this procedure of correction, as laid out in Scripture, is equal to not showing love. Not correcting fellow believers does them a disservice. They will happily continue in sin, which will ultimately cause their spiritual death and the loss of their souls to Satan. Is this what you would like for your friends?

Being part of the elect makes us vulnerable to a certain extend. We are the ones who could be deceived. Knowing this is a motivation for us to search the Scriptures to ensure that we are not part of those who would be deceived. This article is meant to offer some help in that and at the same time serve as a warningâ€¦ “therefor let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.”
Just take a look around you! There is widespread famine, tropical storms, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, financial hardship, moral decay and infertility. The whole earth seems to be in turmoil. Is this the beginning of the end times? Are we experiencing what Y’shua described to His disciples in Matthew 24? Are these purely natural events or are these calls from Yahovah? Do you know the cyclical pattern of punishment described in Scripture and the sequence in which these punishements occur? What will happen next and what are we to do?
We all know that our salvation is by faith through His grace. If we believe that His Son, Y’Shua our Messiah, has died for us without any sin and was resurrected from the dead, then we have eternal life. But why does it then make any difference what I do? I cannot earn my salvation through works, thus I can do what I like and my salvation is secured. In this article I will proof to you that this believe is in contradiction to what our Messiah taught. Even Paul does not subscribe to this even though his verse of “cursed under the law” (Galations 3:10) is very frequently misquoted to support this theology. Let us examine the scriptures to see why it makes a difference what I say and do.
