A Christian could lose his or her righteousness and not enter the kingdom of God

You need to understand that to receive Jesus Christ as your Savoir and Lord you have been cleansed  from your past sins. 2Pe_1:9  But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

What does it mean ? Being a Christian means to stop sinning and living a righteous life . That means a life that is right in the eyes of Jesus your Savior and God the Father,keeping the commands in the Bible. If you keep on sinning you will not enter the kingdom of God. There are many many verses warning you . Don’t be fooled by those false pastors who are telling you that you will go with the righteousness of Jesus to heaven .The moment you have received Jesus as your Savior you are cleansed from the past sins and you have become clean and righteous by His blood. BUT BUT you are still in this world and you have to stay clean and righteous .

The time of grace that we are living In only means that when you do sin again and the Holy Spirit is showing you that you are doing wrong, that  you can again  ask for forgiveness of that sin and Jesus will forgive you . But do not keep on sinning because when you die while you were living a sinful life you will go to hell. Only the righteous Christians will see Jesus and going to the New Jerusalem in Heaven . Gal 6:7  Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

YOU WILL LOSE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IF YOU TURN BACK TO YOUR OLD LIFE OF SIN AND WICKEDNESS……. 

If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning…..

2Pe 2:4  For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment;

2Pe 2:5  if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;

2Pe 2:6  if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;

2Pe 2:7  and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless

2Pe 2:8  (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)–

2Pe 2:9  if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.

2Pe 2:10  This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to heap abuse on celestial beings;

2Pe 2:11  yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not heap abuse on such beings when bringing judgment on them from the Lord.

2Pe 2:12  But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish.

2Pe 2:13  They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.

2Pe 2:14  With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed–an accursed brood!

2Pe 2:15  They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Bezer, who loved the wages of wickedness.

2Pe 2:16  But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey–an animal without speech–who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.

2Pe 2:17  These people are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them.

2Pe 2:18  For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error.

2Pe 2:19  They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity–for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.”

2Pe 2:20  If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.

2Pe 2:21  It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.

2Pe 2:22  Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”

YOU STILL HAVE CHOICES: YOU COULD DELIBERATELY KEEP ON SINNING OR YOU COULD FALL BACK , BUT IT IS A DANGEROUS THING TO DO TO MOCK GOD AND IT WILL END IN A DISASTER FOR YOU:

…But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”
Heb 10:39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved……If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,
Heb 10:27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.

Heb 6:1 Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God,
Heb 6:2 instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.
Heb 6:3 And God permitting, we will do so.
Heb 6:4 It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,
Heb 6:5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age
Heb 6:6 and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.
Heb 6:7 Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God.
Heb 6:8 But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.

Heb 10:26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,
Heb 10:27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
Heb 10:28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Heb 10:29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?
Heb 10:30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”
Heb 10:31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Heb 10:32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering.
Heb 10:33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated.
Heb 10:34 You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.
Heb 10:35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
Heb 10:36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
Heb 10:37 For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”
Heb 10:38 And, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”
Heb 10:39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.

YOU MUST STOP SINNING! YOU MUST OBEY THE COMMANDS IN THE BIBLE. YOU MUST LISTEN TO THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO WILL TEACH YOU ABOUT SIN AND RIGHTEOUSNESS.

IF YOU CONTINUE TO SIN YOU WILL BE A SINNER AND THE RESULT IS DEATH.

1Jn 1:6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.

1Jn 2:4 Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.

1Jn 2:9 Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness.

1Jn 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.
1Jn 2:16 For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world.

1Jn 3:6 No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.

1Jn 3:8 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

1Jn 3:14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death.
1Jn 3:15 Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.

1Jn 4:20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen

Rom_6:12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.

Rom 6:16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Rom 6:20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.
Rom 6:21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death!
Rom 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rom 8:5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
Rom 8:6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
Rom 8:7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.
Rom 8:8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

Heb 10:26  If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,

Heb 10:27  but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.

Heb 10:28  Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.

Heb 10:29  How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?

Heb 10:30  For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”

Heb 10:31  It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

THE WICKED HAS TO REPENT , IF NOT THEY WILL GO TO HELL.

WHEN A RIGHTEOUS PERSON TURNS FROM THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND DOES EVIL THEY WILL DIE FOR THEIR SINS. IF YOU WARN THE RIGHTEOUS PERSON NOT TO SIN AND THEY DO NOT SIN , THEY WILL LIVE :

Eze 3:17  “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.

Eze 3:18  When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

Eze 3:19  But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

Eze 3:20  “Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

Eze 3:21  But if you do warn the righteous person not to sin and they do not sin, they will surely live because they took warning, and you will have saved yourself.”

Eze 18:6  He does not eat at the mountain shrines or look to the idols of Israel. He does not defile his neighbor’s wife or have sexual relations with a woman during her period.

Eze Eze 18:5  “Suppose there is a righteous man who does what is just and right.

18:7  He does not oppress anyone, but returns what he took in pledge for a loan. He does not commit robbery but gives his food to the hungry and provides clothing for the naked.

Eze 18:8  He does not lend to them at interest or take a profit from them. He withholds his hand from doing wrong and judges fairly between two parties.

Eze 18:9  He follows my decrees and faithfully keeps my laws. That man is righteous; he will surely live, declares the Sovereign LORD.

Eze 18:10  “Suppose he has a violent son, who sheds blood or does any of these other things

Eze 18:11  (though the father has done none of them): “He eats at the mountain shrines. He defiles his neighbor’s wife.

Eze 18:12  He oppresses the poor and needy. He commits robbery. He does not return what he took in pledge. He looks to the idols. He does detestable things.

Eze 18:13  He lends at interest and takes a profit. Will such a man live? He will not! Because he has done all these detestable things, he is to be put to death; his blood will be on his own head.

Eze 18:14  “But suppose this son has a son who sees all the sins his father commits, and though he sees them, he does not do such things:

Eze 18:15  “He does not eat at the mountain shrines or look to the idols of Israel. He does not defile his neighbor’s wife.

Eze 18:16  He does not oppress anyone or require a pledge for a loan. He does not commit robbery but gives his food to the hungry and provides clothing for the naked.

Eze 18:17  He withholds his hand from mistreating the poor and takes no interest or profit from them. He keeps my laws and follows my decrees. He will not die for his father’s sin; he will surely live.

Eze 18:18  But his father will die for his own sin, because he practiced extortion, robbed his brother and did what was wrong among his people.

Eze 18:19  “Yet you ask, ‘Why does the son not share the guilt of his father?’ Since the son has done what is just and right and has been careful to keep all my decrees, he will surely live.

Eze 18:20  The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

Eze 18:21  “But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die.

Eze 18:22  None of the offenses they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live.

Eze 18:23  Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?

Eze 18:24  “But if a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked person does, will they live? None of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness they are guilty of and because of the sins they have committed, they will die.

Eze 18:25  “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Hear, you Israelites: Is my way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust?

Eze 18:26  If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin, they will die for it; because of the sin they have committed they will die.

Eze 18:27  But if a wicked person turns away from the wickedness they have committed and does what is just and right, they will save their life.

Eze 18:28  Because they consider all the offenses they have committed and turn away from them, that person will surely live; they will not die.

Eze 33:7  “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.

Eze 33:8  When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

Eze 33:9  But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.

Eze 33:10  “Son of man, say to the Israelites, ‘This is what you are saying: “Our offenses and sins weigh us down, and we are wasting away because of them. How then can we live?”‘

Eze 33:11  Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?’

Eze 33:12  “Therefore, son of man, say to your people, ‘If someone who is righteous disobeys, that person’s former righteousness will count for nothing. And if someone who is wicked repents, that person’s former wickedness will not bring condemnation. The righteous person who sins will not be allowed to live even though they were formerly righteous.’

Eze 33:13  If I tell a righteous person that they will surely live, but then they trust in their righteousness and do evil, none of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered; they will die for the evil they have done.

Eze 33:14  And if I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ but they then turn away from their sin and do what is just and right–

Eze 33:15  if they give back what they took in pledge for a loan, return what they have stolen, follow the decrees that give life, and do no evil–that person will surely live; they will not die.

Eze 33:16  None of the sins that person has committed will be remembered against them. They have done what is just and right; they will surely live.

Eze 33:17  “Yet your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ But it is their way that is not just.

Eze 33:18  If a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, they will die for it.

Eze 33:19  And if a wicked person turns away from their wickedness and does what is just and right, they will live by doing so.

Eze 33:20  Yet you Israelites say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ But I will judge each of you according to your own ways.”

AFTER YOU HAVE RECEIVED JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR ,IT IS ALL ABOUT RIGHTEOUSNESS :

Mat 13:49  This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

.Mat 13:50 and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat_25:46  “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Mat 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

Rev_3:5  The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.
