There are far too many Laodicean believers in Yeshua who know of the Holy Spirit but do not cooperate with Him – do not let Him prompt, lead, and teach them. As a result, they remain carnal and prone to worldliness – they behave just like unsaved non-believers.
By contending for the faith, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, and by staying close – via the Holy Spirit – to the only One who is able to keep believers in Yeshua from falling, Yeshua’s believers will be able not only to survive apostasy but also able to thrive as holy overcomers in spite of the fact that apostasy is everywhere in today’s world. Selah . . .
The reasons why so many Christians who say they are saved, born-again believers of Yeshua will miss the pre-Tribulation Rapture are because they will not take to heart the Scriptures that warn them about their need to get prepared, stay ready, and stay alert – keep looking out for Yeshua’s Return – and because they don’t believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture.
Apostle Paul advises the believers in the churches of Galatia that they must give rigorous attention to doctrinal clarity, and that they also must remain faithful to the true Gospel he taught them, if they are to have any hope of being able to avoid losing their faith, in such a time as this, or have any hope of being able to avoid permanently falling away from their faith (becoming apostates). This advice, thus, is useful for modern-day believers, as well!
