Jesus said, “Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” What is the meaning of these paradoxes, and what do they have to do with the Judgment Seat? Pastor Hollandsworth explains this text, as well as the meaning of Christ’s call for believers to: “deny self, take up your cross, and follow Me.”
Did you know that salvation has three tenses: past, present, and future? What does this have to do with the spirit, soul, and body of man? Pastor Hollandsworth defines “soul salvation” and discusses the critical importance of this New Testament truth that is often misunderstood.
At the Judgment Seat, “fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.” Many will “suffer loss.” Another passage says, “he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done.” What does this mean?
