Both I think should be watched together. The rapture sermon dealt with the assurance of salvation and it flowed right into the Genesis sermon beautifully.
After struggling most of my life without the assurance of salvation with no hope and always worrying if I was going to make it. I can tell you from personal experience that not only to be saved, but to have the assurance of salvation is a beautiful blessing and a promise.
As of two years ago I know for certain that I am saved, I know I will not lose my salvation, I am no longer afraid of death, and I love Christ more now than ever. There is nothing that I want more than to be with Him. I want more and more of Him each day.
As for those that’s say it’s encourages licentiousness, I have to disagree. It is because of His love and His grace that I want to live for Him. I am filled with an uncontainable joy.
If you have someone who tells you you’re not doing enough or you are not persevering enough, you need to run away from them. There is nothing that you can do to save yourself, except to believe In Christ. You are not your own savior. Do not let these people steal your joy and hope in the Lord.
God is not a man that He should lie. Jesus says that no one can take you out of His hands, out of the Father’s hands, and the Holy Spirit can never leave you. You are absolutely totally secure and his promises are irrevocable. He loves you very much and not only does He want you to be saved he wants you to know. He does not want you to live with worry or fear, but he wants you to be fearless. Knowing that you are secure and you have something better to look forward to makes you fearless. He wants you to be filled with the joy, the love, the hope, and the peace that could only come from Him.
