Assurance of Salvation

Assurance of Salvation

How can I know for sure that I am saved? I got this answer from Les Feldick Teaches Through the Bible. It is a national television show. I hope it is as comforting an answer to you as it is to me.

There are only two types of spirits; The Spirit of Christ and the spirit of the anti-christ. Poor, pitiful creatures that we are, we have both spirits living in us. Our minds are the battlefield where these two spirits are at war with each other. So to determine which spirit has the upper hand in you, you need only answer these three simple questions.

  1. Do you enjoy spending time in prayer?
  2. Do you enjoy spending time in reading the Bible?
  3. Do you enjoy spending time with people who enjoy prayer and the Bible?

If the answer to all three of these questions is “Yes,” then the Spirit of Christ dominates in you because prayer, the Bible, and Christ’s people all have the Spirit of Christ.

If you said “No” to all three, then you are dominated, but not yet defeated by the spirit of the anti-christ.

If you said “Yes” to some and “No” to others then I would say that the Spirit of Christ is becoming dominate in you, but you still have a lot of growing to do. So start reading the Bible and Praying more often (with the goal of praying continuously) and watch yourself change from the inside out. Understand that this work of sanctification will not be complete until we see our Savior face to face.
