We were * predestined for Salvation, from Eternity to Eternity * [1]. However, Scripture [2] tells us not to neglect such a great Salvation (Hebrews 2: 3A). Saved always saved? We are saved by Grace, and once enlightened by it (Hebrews 6: 4-5) we long, we pray, we seek to remain in that Salvation. However there are several passages (here I share those that come now to my memory, but there must be more, surely) that point to that we must strive to maintain in that Salvation.

Enter through the narrow gate; For the gate is wide, and the way that leads to destruction is wide, and many are the ones who enter through it; For the gate is narrow, and the way that leads to life is narrow, and few are the ones that find it. Matthew 7:13 -14.

A. 1 Peter 5: 4 And when the prince of the shepherds appear, you shall receive the incorruptible CROWN of glory.

Here it is understood that Corona is Salvation, according to the context of 1 Peter.

B. Revelation 3:11 Behold, I come quickly; Hold what you have, so that no one takes your CROWN.

Obviously the Enemy is interested in losing the Crown (Salvation).

C. James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; Because when he has withstood the test, he will receive the CROWN of life, which God has promised to those who love him. 

If he does not resist and fall, the promised crown (salvation) will not be given to him.

D. Revelation 2: 7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give him to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Whoever does not eat from the Tree of Life will fall into the 2nd Death.

E. Revelation 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. The one who WINS will not suffer damage from the second death.

The 2nd Death is eternal perdition.

F. Revelation 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. To him that overcometh, I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and in the little stone written a new name, which no one knows but he that receives it.

The New Name, for those who are with Him in that New Earth.

G. Revelation 2:26 Whoever overcomes and keeps my works to the end, I will give authority over the nations.

Reign with the King, only for those who overcome and do not loose ...

H. Revelation 3: 5 He that overcometh shall be clothed with white garments; And I will not blot out his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

The one who wins will continue in the Register of the Book of Life, the others will be erased.

I. Revelation 3:12 To him that overcometh, I will make it a pillar in the temple of my God, and it shall not go forth any more; And I will write upon it the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from heaven, from my God, and my new name. He that overcometh shall be in the New Jerusalem, which was not outside ...

J. Revelation 3:21 To him that overcometh, I will give him to sit with me in my throne, even as I have overcome, and have sat with my Father on his throne.

To be One in Christ is for those who overcome, who have not fallen from grace.

K. Revelation 21: 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Those who do not win will not be their children, They will not be in the Temple, They will not enter the New Jerusalem, They will not know His New Name, They will not retain their Crown, They will not reign with Him, They will not be part of Him nor of the Father.

L. Hebrews 6: 7 For the earth that drinks the rain that often falls upon it, and produces fruit useful to those for which it is carved, receives blessing from God; 6: 8 But the one that produces thorns and thistles is reproved, it is near to be cursed, and its end is to be burnt.

Those who receive for years the Word, and call themselves Christians, if they do not bear fruit, will be lost.

M. Hebrews 2: 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect a SALVATION SO GREAT? How will we escape Eternal Destruction if we neglect Salvation?

In Eternity, things are absolute, binary: White or Black. There is no past or future, just a continuous present where things are and no longer mute.

In Temporality, there is no present ... because the current moment has already become past and what is yet to come is not. In this temporality things go from what they are potentially to what they will be concretely, the reality of the becoming of things, where the only sure thing is change.

Week 70 is about to begin, do not neglect such a great Salvation.

Salvation, predestination, Grace, Calvinism.
