The way you can tell if you are truly saved is this: you will immediately, after accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior, have a deep and abiding hunger from the heart for the Word, (which IS Jesus). The thing that will cause you to have that hunger will be having had a taste of it. Once a person tastes the Word; the Living, anointed, pure Word, no matter how small that taste may be, they will have the hunger. This hunger will be in your spirit, not your mind. This hunger willNOT be for memorizing scripture verses, it will NOT be to gain knowledge or informationabout God. This hunger will be to know God! The Bible tells us, ‘the Word of God is living and alive; sharper than any double-edged sword. In order for a person to be born again they would have to receive that “Living Word” by the Holy Spirit.
23 Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. 24 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.
1 Peter 2:24
24 He personally carried our sins
in his body on the cross
so that we can be dead to sin
and live for what is right.
By his wounds
you are healed.
And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6 You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet…
New International Version (NIV)
32 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
