A PARTAKER OF THE HOLY GHOST IN HEBREWS 6:4 IS THE SAME AS BEING A PARTAKER OF THE DIVINE NATURE IN 2 PETER 1:4- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

When you tell a once saved always saved person that a person is a partaker of the divine nature in 2 Peter 1:4 they understand exactly what that says and means and won’t argue about it.

However that same once saved always saved person will attempt to explain the word partaker in Hebrews 6:4 means something altogether different (partakers of the Holy Ghost).

That is if they will acknowledge the New Testament book of Hebrews is applicable to believers today.

They dismiss and explain away any parts of the New Testament that contradict their once saved always saved doctrine.

NO FORGIVENESS WITHOUT FELLOWSHIP- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

If the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sins on the condition that we are walking in the light (fellowship) as He is in the light how does a believer in eternal security expect to remain cleansed if he temporarily walks in darkness (out of fellowship)?

1 John 1:7- But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.

NO ETERNAL LIFE, FORGIVENESS OR SALVATION WITHOUT FELLOWSHIP- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

Contrary to the teaching and mantra of eternal security adherents the Bible does not teach you can have eternal life without having fellowship.

John 6:53- Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, ye have NO LIFE IN YOU.

Any honest reader understands the clear meaning here is fellowship or communion with Jesus Christ.

No fellowship no eternal life.

John 10:27-28- My sheep hear My voice, and I KNOW them, and they follow Me: AND I give unto them ETERNAL LIFE;

Knowing Him refers to fellowship and communion or intimacy with Him not head knowledge or knowing about Him.

No eternal life without fellowship.

John 17:3- And this is LIFE ETERNAL, that they might KNOW THEE the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent

Knowing Him is referring to intimate knowledge or fellowship and communion.

No fellowship no eternal life.

1 John 1:7- But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.

No forgiveness or cleansing without fellowship.

REFUTING ETERNAL SECURITY, ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED, PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS USING LUKE 9:23- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

Proponents of Once Saved Always, Saved, Eternal Security, Perseverance of the Saints (or whatever as there is not a dimes worth of difference between them) are always parroting their mantra “You can’t do anything to get it so you can’t do anything to keep it” (blah, blah, blah).

That isn’t even true anyways because YOU must REPENT as a condition of being saved (Luke 13:3,5, Mark 1:15, Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19, Acts 17:30-31, Acts 20:21, Acts 26:20).

God doesn’t do it for you but commands you to do it.

Anyways if there is nothing we must do to maintain our salvation why did Jesus state:

Luke 9:23- If any man will come after Me, let him DENY HIMSELF, and TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY, and FOLLOW ME.

All of these are commands necessary to the believer to DO SOMETHING in the PRESENT, CONSTANT, CONTINUOUS tense.

If you would be a follower, disciple, believer of Jesus Christ YOU MUST DO THESE CONTINUOUS, CONSTANT AND PRESENT TENSE or YOU are not one of His disciples.

Can a believer be a believer and follower of Jesus Christ without obeying what is commanded to be a follower, believer and disciple of Jesus Christ?

If so you are an easy believism antinomian regardless of what you claim to be.

REFUTING ETERNAL SECURITY (ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED) WITH JAMES 5:19-20- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

James 5:19-20- Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one CONVERT him; let him know that he which CONVERTETH the sinner from the error of his way, shall SAVE A SOUL FROM DEATH, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

This passage is such a difficulty for eternal security adherents that many dismiss the book of James as not being applicable to the New Testament believer.

Their argument is it was written to the Jews not them.

Anyway this clearly shows the BROTHER who DEPARTS from the TRUTH (Jesus John 14:6) must be converted back (born again again?) or he will experience eternal death (Romans 6:23).

Previously converted (any of you), departed, needed to be converted back again and now referred to as a sinner (1 Peter4:18, John 9:31) which is the opposite of what believers are referred to (righteous Peter 4:18, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 John 3:7, 1 John 2:29).

PENTECOSTAL PREACHERS AND HOW THEIR READING IS REFLECTED IN THEIR PREACHING, PRACTICE, AND FRUIT- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

Years ago Pentecostal preacbers would mainly read the Bible, pray and fast with little or no reading of supplementary books.

Due to lack of good books from Pentecostal writers and more difficult circumstances of living they were much more dependent on God.

Since their study and prayer came directly from the Bible it was reflected in their preaching, their experience and the results of their preaching.

It reflected their Pentecostal beliefs.

Now there are many more books available and as a result much of the time the emphasis of the Bible is shared with books, sermons, etc. with less of an emphasis on prayer and fasting.

Books are good, can be a great blessing and the ministry was ordained by God to perfect, train and equip the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-15).

The problem though now is there is still a great shortage of books by Pentecostal writers and most of the books and authors read by Pentecostal preacbers are non Pentecostal written from a non Pentecostal view.

Over time this non Pentecostal view is reflected in the preaching, experience and results of the preaching.

CONFRONTATION AND CONFLICT IN PREACHING THE GOSPEL- BY BROTHER MICAH ARMSTRONG

I am trying to figure out all these people who witness, preach, and supposedly win all these souls do so without ever having any contention.

What do they do with the book of Acts as Paul and the early church was regularly disputing, persuading, contending, reasoning , striving (arguing), etc.

Do they claim to follow Paul in power, Holy Ghost, miracles, conversions and everything else without the contending, disputing, persuading, striving, reasoning involved with the truth going forth and attacking false beliefs and mindsets?

The real gospel always stirs up opposition and brings out the devils crowd and religious folks.

Sometimes their religion is false Christianity, humanism, liberalism, socialism, Islam, new age, etc.

What kind of gospel goes forth and destroys satans kingdom and sets captives free from his power with no opposition?

Certainly not the biblical gospel of Jesus Christ!

I believe most of these folks who claim they never dispute, contend, or persuade do not preach enough truth to be understood and confront satans lies much less destroy them.
Their supposed fruit is built on shallow soil and most likely will go up in smoke in the judgment.

Perhaps they can’t defend what they believe.

Perhaps they want to be approved of and avoid all opposition and controversy.

Make no mistake there are some who are just contentious.

There are many subjects that we can disagree upon without getting contentious.

Sometimes we may not have the time to follow up every point of contention we need to or it may not be priority at the moment.

Those however are no excuse for those who claim to be a soldier for Christ but never strive, dispute, persuade, contend, rebuke, and reprove for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His kingdom.

Those who complain of such should stay out of enemy territory, out of the army of God, out of the book of Acts, and stick to recipes and selfies on FacebooK”
