Open Heaven For Teens 4 March 2019 Message

I have heard many big Pastors talk about eternal security and I don’t want you to fall prey to their lies. They say once you’ve confessed Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, then you can go on committing sin because His grace has covered your sins. Big lie! They say that it is your soul that matters, it does not matter what you do with your body; another big lie! Romans 12:1 says we should present our Bodies a living sacrifice to Him, 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 says our body is His temple; He is very much interested in our body too. They say it is not possible to fall from grace whereas Galatians 5:3-4 says that a person can fall from grace. 
My child, note that grace does not give liberty to sin, rather it gives empowerment not to sin. Let no one deceive you, without holiness, no man shall see God. However overstretched the teaching of Grace becomes, it changes nothing in eternity; the hosts of heaven are not subject to our interpretations of the scriptures, but we are subject to theirs. Even if these preachers sound logically correct, is it not better you remain holy and be sure to make it to heaven than to risk eternity on doctrine that does not align with the Word of God.

Without holiness, no one shall see God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Numbers 30-31, Mark 9:30-50

Hymn 15
1. Wonderful story of love; 
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love; 
Wake the immortal strain! 
Angels with rapture announce it, 
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, 0 won’t you believe It?
Wonderful story of love.

Chorus:
Wonderful! Wonderful! 
Wonderful, Wonderful story of love.

2. Wonderful story of love, 
Though you are far away; 
Wonderful story of love; 
Still He doth call today; 
Calling from Calvary’s mountain, 
Down from the crystal bright fountain, 
E’en from the dawn of creation, 
Wonderful story of love.

3. Wonderful story of love: 
Jesus provides a rest; 
Wonderful story of love; 
For all the pure and blest, 
Rest in those mansions above us, 
With those who’ve gone on before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus,
Wonderful story of Love.
