|1 John 5:18|
18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but God protects the one he has fathered, and the wicked one does not touch him.5 [The one God has fathered is a new creature, who is the believer with Christ resurrected within him; both then are raised to the heavens, to sit down in Christ, who never fell. He cannot fall to sin again because God protects him; he is sanctified, protected from evil. My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. John 10:29.]
|1 John 3:8-9|
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]
|John 10:29 |
29 My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
