You are so, so correct.<quoted text>
Sorry to burst your bubble but proclaiming your salvation doesn't come close to making you a saint.
I do not declare myself a saint without the underpinning of the Holy Spirit dwelling within me, and the blood of the Lord Jesus shed so undeservedly for me. I have the assurance of the believer.
Do you think I just say I am a saint, with no biblical basis?
Again, you do not understand who the saints are. Re-read the Bible verse.
Do you fall into that category? If so you are saved and sanctified and ready to go at any moment. Praise the Lord.
