Hebrews 10:36,39

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 36 For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise . [In order to receive the promised salvation you must endure in waiting, tribulations, suffering, and obedience to crucify your sinful nature. Then you are righteous, permanently freed from sin, translated into His kingdom, and in union with Christ and God.]

 39 But we are not of those who draw back [don't endure] to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. [A believer can draw back into perdition before his soul has been saved in ceasing to wait, listen, and obey; or by failing to stay on the inward cross of self-denial until the death of his selfish nature, which requires patience and great endurance. The parable of the sower explains why people draw back failing to produce the fruit of the Spirit.]
