Once Saved, Can We Really Always Be Saved?

Be Saved

What Does Bible Say about “Being Saved”?

Through seeking, as for “being saved,” I see these verses in the Old Testament, Joel 2:32 says, “that whoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered…”. Psalm 28:8–9 says, “The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed. Save your people, and bless your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.” From these two passages, we can see that being saved in the Age of Law was based on calling on the name of Jehovah God and abiding by the laws. Combining the work God did in the Age of Law and the result achieved by it, we can understand the real meaning of being saved in that age. As we know, earliest mankind didn’t know what sin was, so they didn’t have a sense of shame or feel reproached when they murdered, fornicated, committed adultery or incest, or worshiped the fake god. Therefore Jehovah God promulgated the Ten Commandments and more than six hundred laws, and the aim was to let earliest mankind know what sin was and what things they did would cause themselves to be loathed and struck down by God. Because Jehovah God issued the laws and commandments, the Israelites understood what He detested and what He loved. So when acting, they would do according to His requirements. These who listened to God’s words and abided by Jehovah’s laws and commandments received God’s protection because of their faith, so that they weren’t burnt by heavenly fire or stoned to death, which means they were saved because they obeyed the laws and commandments Jehovah God issued. If people at that time sinned, they could offer burnt offerings for their sins. In this way, they could be exempted from death because of being forgiven of sins. This is the meaning of being saved in the Age of Law.
