Christ’s bride “made herself ready”, as wise virgins, by hearing Christ’s words and doing them. They kept oil in their lamps with extra containers. [faith and works] But Babylon, the unfaithful woman, was an harlot, who did not ready herself for judgment day. She exalted herself, beat the Lord’s servants, even killed them, and ate and drank with the drunken.

Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

Mat 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

Mat 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth

God’s word tells his holy apostles and prophets to rejoice when he judges “Babylon”.

Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

for in one hour is she made desolate.

Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

“Babylon” was once a faithful city where righteous people lived, but it became a habitation of devils, so God called his people out of her. Jesus told them to flee to the mountains before she would be destroyed. Rev 18:2,4,5; Luke 21:20-24

These wicked ones trusted in vain things that God takes no pleasure in to save them:

Isa 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

Isa 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

Isa 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

They flattered themselves – as if being the natural children of Abraham afforded them unconditional promises:

___________________________________________

Joh 8:33 They answered Jesus, “We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?”

Mat 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his [John’s] baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Mat 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Mat 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Mat 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Contrary to popular teaching in today’s Zionist churches, God puts NO DIFFERENCE between Jews and Gentiles:

_________________________________________________

Rom_10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Act_15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Rom_3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Gal 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

Gal 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

Gal 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

Gal 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. [no land promise mentioned at all in the NT]

Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed [singular] were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many [as if to Jews AND Christians]; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Act 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Abraham’s natural children don’t qualify as the people of God UNLESS they believe in Jesus, and bring forth his righteousness, the fruit of repentance and faith:

_______________________________

Rom 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not “all Israel”, which are of [natural] Israel:

Rom 9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all [Abraham’s] children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

Rom 9:8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Joh 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

Joh 8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

Joh 8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

Joh 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil…

Joh 8:47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

Joh 8:48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

Joh 8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

Joh_15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

Joh 5:23 all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Peter identified God’s chosen people ONLY as those who believe in Jesus, who had not been a nation before, as Israel had been, and Jesus said his kingdom was not of this world, fighting bloody worldly wars:

_____________________________________________

1Pe 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Joh 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Joh 8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

Joh 8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

Joh 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

Joh 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

As they hated Jesus once they realized he was not a warlord, devoted to saving them from the oppression of Rome, so they hated and killed his apostles, even as they had always hated and killed the prophets:

__________________________________

Mat 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

Mat 23:30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

Mat 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

Mat 23:32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Mat 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

Mat 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

Mat 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Luke 13:33 Yet I must walk today and tomorrow and the day following. For it cannot be that a prophet perish outside of Jerusalem.

Which brings us back to Babylon in Revelation:

__________________________________

Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Rev_11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. (See Isa 1:10, above):

_________________________________________

So now, after comparing scripture with scripture, and seeing what God has called the city where our Lord was crucified, tell me:

WHO IS BABYLON?

“Do you think most Jews are willing to obey Jesus’ teachings?”

 

I don’t believe the majority of ANY RACE is willing to obey Jesus’ teachings. I agree with scripture:

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

But, you asked specifically about most of the “Jews”, so I will answer like this:

IF the majority of the “Jews” [if you mean those living in the land called “Israel”] are content to follow no God, or “the tradition of the elders” found in the Jewish Talmud and the Kabbalah, and continue to rejoice in murder and oppression for gain, then no, they will reject the new wine [Jesus Christ], and remain drunken on man-made spirituality unto death. If the majority of them chose to humble themselves, and will allow the Spirit of God to convict their evil hearts, and draw them to repent and to “do the truth”, even at the cost of being hated by their own families, then they WILL come to the light, lay down their lives and their guns, take up the cross, and love their enemies, and follow Christ’s example. There IS no other way for Jews [or those usurping that title] or anyone else in the world to be saved. Jn 14:6; 5:23; 15:23; 2Jn 1:9-11

 

“Do the Jews deserve the homeland that was established in the OT by God?”

 

What did God say about that?

Deu 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
Deu 28:20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
Deu 28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
Deu 28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
Deu 28:49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
Deu 28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
Deu 28:52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
Deu 28:63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and YE SHALL BE PLUCKED FROM OFF THE LAND whither thou goest to possess it.

Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the
name of the Lord [Jesus the messiah].

Contrary to popular “Christian” Zionist deception, the Jews must believe in Jesus NOW to be in covenant with God, for he honors no other way of hope to ANYONE, outside of faith in Jesus.

Jews don’t get saved by choosing EITHER Moses OR Jesus. Had they believed Moses, they would have believed Jesus, for Moses wrote of him. There IS no more animal sacrifice for sin, and God will not “deal with the Jews” during an imagined future 7 year period of re-instated sacrifices. Scripture offers no hope in a coming messiah for those who reject Jesus. NOW, Before Christ returns, is the only appointed time to be saved, for only now can anyone exibit faith. We are saved by hope, but hope that is seen is not hope Rom 8:24. As it will be too late for any Gentile to believe and be saved when he sees Jesus return, even so, it will also be too late then for any Jew who had rejected him till he returns. EVERY knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord when they see him come, every Jew and every Gentile! The Jews have been given no special promise of salvation based on having been born a Jew. Those who promise Jews salvation at the hour Jesus comes, based on their race – are damnable hereticks; racist false prophets. They are also liars who condemn this truth as “antisemitic”. There could be no greater hatred for the Jewish race than to promise them salvation based on race, for it is a lie that will snare them into hell, as it will everyone else who supports every war Zionism demands.

Isa 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

Isa 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
Isa 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
Isa 1:23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gift$, and followeth after reward$: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

Isa 1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
Isa 1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Isa 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: [wherever the LORD would have them go live in peace]
Isa 1:20 But if ye refuse [Jesus] and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Those in Israel today are no closer to God now than those in the first century, whom God destroyed because of unbelief. They have made laws against Christ, and against his word, and hate Christians, but see hirelings like John Hagee as “useful idiots”.

Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; HIM SHALL YE HEAR in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
Act 3:23 And it shall come to pass, that EVERY SOUL WHICH WILL NOT HEAR THAT PROPHET SHALL BE DESTROYED FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE.
Act 3:25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall ALL THE KINDREDS (nations) of the earth be blessed.
Act 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

God’s promise of blessing applies to both Jew and Gentile Gal 3:5-29. God is no respecter of persons Acts 10:34-35; Rom 2:11; Ja 2:1-9. Abraham’s seed is CHRIST. God never promised to bless Abraham’s “seeds”, but his “seed”, which is Christ Gal 3:16. If a man of ANY nation is in Christ, HE IS ABRAHAM’S SEED, AND AN HEIR OF THE PROMISE. The new covenant promised no earthly land to anyone, but an heavenly kingdom. God was not ashamed to be called God by those who sought no continuing EARTHLY city. So what does that say for those who steal, murder, and oppress for land? Is God honored to be called THEIR God?

Heb 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
Heb 11:14 For they that say such things declare plainly THEY SEEK A COUNTRY.
Heb 11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
Heb 11:16 But now THEY DESIRE A BETTER COUNTRY, THAT IS, AN HEAVENLY: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

 

“Do governments have a responsibility to protect it’s citizens from harm? Is Hamas defending themselves or have they for years been lobbing missiles and rockets upon Israel unprovoked?”

 

Which government do you suppose has the right to respect one race over another, to come into a nation where people have been living for centuries, cut down their fruit and olive trees, bulldoze their houses, and claim the land because their forefathers lived there two centuries earlier, and claim God gives them the ENTITLEMENT to do this wickedness? Which government is free to deceive a foreign nation through media into thinking they have the “right” to call the protesting  majority “terrorists”, whom they have oppressed, murdered, reduced them to refuge status, confined behind walls and occupied by police state power for for 65 years? Do the oppressed have any right to protest genocide, or are they “not a people” because a U.S.- favored gov hates them?

Who do you suppose is unprovoked?

Do you know of any other people who wouldn’t protest what the Jews have done to the Palestinians, had the Jews done the same thing to them?
This is in NO WAY justifying the murderous response that Hamas has given to Israel.

 

“The Jews are hated all over the world by Muslims, Nazis, and others, where do you propose they should live?”

 

The Zionist’s motto USED to be “A land without a people for a people without a land”. Sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? But they didn’t quite live up to that ideal, did they? Palestine was not a land without a people. The Zionists intended from the beginning to go in and kick every Arab out, or put them behind an “Iron wall” until they annihilated them all, according to Zionist leader’s own words. If people would simply research the history of Zionism, the facts are readily available, but most are content to follow the crowd, believe the media, AIPAC and CUFI, and remain in darkness, for fear of being labeled “anti-Semitic”. I speak this, a Jew myself.  As you might have already guessed, I’m not afraid of being  slandered with either the anti-semitc” label, or the “self-hating Jew” label. Both are merely a shallow joke, cleverly designed to gain sympathy for the evils of Zionism, which only a fool refuses to discern.The Zionists themselves admit this, and have boasted of its effectiveness.

Would you approve of the Zionist Jews coming to your state with their present murderous entitlement mindset, and appreciate getting herded into a concentration camp, where everyday life is impossible, so “God’s chosen people” could fulfill their dreams and be “blessed”, while you suffer the loss of your children and everything else? Do you really believe their ethnic cleansing will stop in the land of Israel, when the Zionist leaders have stated global aspirations?

In response to the video that claims “a nation becomes sick when the Jews leave” -,, any nation will suffer when a substantial number of its productive citizens leave. But to present that fact as if it’s exclusively due to Jewish departures is obviously racist. That is the theme of that video, and I, as a Jew, find it quite sickening.

I am alarmed at the increasing Muslim population in the U.S. and in other free nations, because the “peaceful” Muslims don’t stand up against the violence of the militant ones, who actually obey the Koran’s anti-christian teachings. Neither does the sleeping U.S. gov make sufficient efforts to protect the American people from this rising threat, but spends billions aiding their enemies. This gov has been for years robbing taxpayers of billions – only to protect itself. Let the rest eat cake…let them entertain themselves with all the demons of Hollywood, “music”, health “care”, and the brainwashing media, denominations, and let them think they have a say in elections by allowing them to continue voting for the same corrupt political parties, [which both continue toward a NWO] – until they’re robbed of their last worthless “federal” reserve debt note, so that they are no longer useful-then they will be eventually be eliminated like the Gazans are being now.

The wicked reap what they sow. American “Christians” have forgotten God and buildeth up the synagogue of Satan with blood.

It appears the threat of obedient Islamics will grow so great worldwide, that only Christ’s second [final] coming will eliminate it. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.

 

An eternal security proponent made this statement:

BillyD_fm_TN4: Do you not understand that ETERNAL LIFE is ETERNAL?  You may fall out of favor with God after having had his gift of ETERNAL LIFE bestowed on you, but He knew that would happen BEFORE He ever gave you eternal life to begin with.

I replied:

Eternal life is our HOPE. We’re saved by hope, but hope that is seen is no longer hope, for what a man sees, why would he yet hope for it? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience (endurance) wait for it; Rom 8:24-25.  Also, eternal life was eternal BEFORE we obtained the hope of it, so billy’s argument falls flat.

BillyD_fm_TN4:  You cant UNDO what is ETERNAL.

I replied:

No, we can’t. Scripture says He alone has immortality now.

1Ti 6:16  Our Lord Jesus Christ ALONE has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.

If a person who had once believed in Jesus hardens his heart against Christ, and perishes in his sin, his falling away CANNOT effect the promise of eternal life to the faithful. Even if one no longer possesses it, eternal life will remain eternal. Just as if one misses a plane to Atlanta, it will still get there with all it’s other passengers, only without him. As in Matt 25’s parable of the wise and foolish virgins, even though all 10 virgins had lamps, only those who were ready inherited eternal life when the bridegroom came. Believers who fail the grace of God and do not overcome will have their names blotted out of the Lamb’s book of life, while the overcomer’s names will remain there: Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. This next verse proves that one can have his name removed from the book of life because of his sin: Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

The following is what the eternal word of God  says can happen to those who once believed, and we can’t undo what is eternal. Just as we who have repented of sin and are presently walking with Jesus have the hope and promise of eternal life IF we continue in His Word and abide in Christ, even so we are promised by the Eternal Word of God that if we don’t abide in Christ, we can be cut off and die in sin and be cast into the fire of hell. God’s way is EQUAL, but many think that from the point one is saved, it’s IMPOSSIBLE for him to fall away from Jesus and return to his vomit… or that even if he does, it can’t affect his salvation!

Scripture warns that even though you’ve once truly believed in Jesus Christ, you CAN still choose to:

1. stop believing.  Luke 8:13
2. harden your heart Heb 3:12, and deny Him AFTER having escaped the pollutions of this world through the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and your latter end can become worse than before you knew Him. 2Pet 2:20-22
3. draw back unto perdition instead of believing to the saving of the soul. Heb 10:39
4. depart from the faith you once possessed by giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. 1Tim 4:1
5. turn aside unto satan. 1Tim 5:15
6. make shipwreck of your faith and blaspheme God 1Tim 1:19-20
7. get spewed out of the body of Christ Rev 3:16
8. fail to yield to grace and sell your birthright for one morsel of meat  Heb 12:16
9. become a castaway after having preached to others if you won’t keep your body under subjection to God 1Cor 9:27
10 become worthless salt, good for nothing but to be cast out and trodden underfoot of men Matt 5:13

Paul warned the Galatians who had once been Christians that they had:

1. So soon been removed from Christ
2. Been bewitched and hindered so they stopped obeying the truth
3. Desired and turned back to walk in the bondage of weak and beggarly elements
4. Fallen from grace, and Christ had become of no effect unto them

AFTER they had:

1. Received believed the gospel,
2. Received the Holy Ghost and obeyed the truth
3. Begun to walk in the Spirit
4. Knew God been known of God
5. Ran well.

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

Jesus told the churches in Asia (Rev 2 and 3) that He knew their works, both good and bad, and that they had :

1. Left their first love
2. A name that they lived but they were dead
3. Become lukewarm, nigh to being rejected.
4. Started fellowshipping with false teachers and their hated doctrines and deeds.
5. Some had defiled their garments
6. Fallen and needed to repent and do the first works again.

Paul did not speak so encouragingly to the Galatians as he had to the Philippians, because the Galatians did not steadfastly abide in Christ like the Philippians were. The Philippians were always obeying God, even when Paul was absent, but not so the Galatians. This is why Paul was confident that God would complete the work He had begun in the Philippians. Because they were OBEDIENT, they qualified as the SHEEP; they did not hear the voice of strangers teaching lies like the Galatians were guilty of doing; they fled from liars, even from those who rose up  among them speaking perverse things. They WORKED OUT their salvation with fear and trembling.
