“Predestination cannot exist without eternal security. They both go hand in hand. John 6:27 says, “Labour not for the meat which (PERISHETH,) but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.” Sealed here means to stamp for security or preservation. When something is preserved it’s kept from being spoiled or from loss. Jesus said he was sealed, and this sealing is by the Holy Spirit: 2 Corinthians 1:22 says, “Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” And Ephesians 1:13 says, ye were SEALED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. Also, in Ephesians 4:30 it says, ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption. That means we are preserved, kept from being ruined, kept from loss. We have a stamp on us that we are secured. We are eternally secure of our salvation when you have the Holy Spirit, BUT the foundation of stands sure having this seal, God knows them that are his, and let everyone that is naming the name of Christ depart from iniquity (2Ti.2:19) ! 1 John 3:6 says, “Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth (that is, lives a sinful lifestyle) hath not seen him, neither known him.” So, if you believe you are saved and always saved, but you can live anyway you want, then you are deceived. We, the Ecclesia, the called-out ones, were foreknown by God in Christ before the foundation of the world and based on that foreknowledge, we were predestined to be conformed into the image of Christ. Are you sealed?”
