Hi J LU,<quoted text>
Hi Grace :) I was talking to my mum-in-law yesterday (she's my Christian 'yoda'), about OSAS. She said she believes there are different levels of Heaven. She gets this from Revelation. She said that because my hubby was once a true believer, he is saved and would probably go into the first level. She said the same thing about my mother, who passed away 3 years ago. I have often fretted about where she might be. My MIL, then said something about how, because I am saved, so is my mother and siblings and that the same theory applied to my husband because of his family. She believes in OSAS. So it's making me wonder more and more about it, I'd like to talk to you about it, if you want to.
Of course we can talk. I am not sure about the 3 heavens but I am positive about OSAS. Lucy, We are SAVED becuase of WHAT Jesus did for us.( As long as we accept Him and BELIEVE what He done for us) Thats all it takes to be SAVED. Jesus done for us what we couldn't do on our own. If we couldnt do anything to "SAVE" ourself, then how are we going to do anything to "UNSAVE" ourself? This is the "Obedience" that God requires from us. IF we could be saved because of our Performance to a list of rules or by us simply asking for forgiveness, then God could do that without having to come here and hang on a cross and die..Right? People claim to Believe God but then they want to Limit Him down to their standards and what they are really doing in reality is saying, "Well, what Jesus done was good but it just wasn't enough to save me without "ME" finishing it for Him. Have you been invited to join our facebook group? We have a private group that many of us on here are a part of and you will learn a lot more about the Gospel of Grace. Most are Christians..some are not but most believe Only in the Gospel of Grace. Do you have a facebook account? I can send you a request but we dont come on here and reveal who people are out of respect for one another. If you are interested, Send me a private message and I will invite you. Its so much more peaceful than topix and you will meet some great people who will be happy to help explain some things to you without all the added confusion. Tell your MIL, that I said, God Bless. I will be back on in a few hours. I have to go get my taxes filled out today.
