Saved to the Uttermost!!!

Hebrews 7:25 (KJV)
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Same verse (NLT)
Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.

Definition of uttermost (utmost)

Of the greatest or highest degree, quantity, number, or amount
There's been some discussion lately about "once saved, always saved". I don't know what you all reading my blog believe...but I believe that once I accept Jesus into my heart, that I am forever saved. According to Hebrews 7:25, I am saved to the "uttermost". How can I be saved any more than "of the highest degree...or quantity...or number...or amount"...than to the uttermost????

To me, that's the ultimate salvation!!!


John 10:27-29 (NLT)

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand.

I cannot be snatched out of my precious Father's hand...
I belong to Him!!!

He knows me.....
He gives me eternal life....
I am HIS!!!
Now...does this mean that once I'm saved that I will never sin again....of course not...the only good within me...any of us who are Christ in us. We are all sinners and will all continue to sin and do wrong until the day He calls us home....and I will continually...daily...have to ask for forgiveness!!!
I've shared this with you all before....this is another one of those things that goes along with the thought that was presented to us by a former pastor:
When we get to heaven, we're all going to realize we were wrong about something. know then it ain't gonna matter!!!

In His Love....and with mine!!!


  1. was this for me?

    sometimes i just hear what "my dear friend" says, and i think.. .....hmmmm???

    i know i'm saved. i know i belong to jesus, but still i don't want to get to heaven and find out i was SUPER wrong about something, you know?? which, i know i will be wrong about alot of things. .. i am!

    love you

  2. I'm glad I'm saved and I'm thankful that our God is a forgiving God!
    I know I'm a sinner and I'm thankful He forgives me and gives
    2nd chances!
