   These words “We Void Warranties” advertise a local large truck diesel engine repair business, sound as if the enterprise nefariously sets out to void warranties by modifying manufacturers’ specifications. However, understood is their confidence in their technicians’ abilities to fix mechanical problems by warranting their work during the warranty period of the diesel engines they service. But “We Void Warranties” has a spiritual inference, too.
   Imagine the adversary, the prince of this world and power of the air, and his minions — principalities and powers, spiritual wickedness in high places and the rulers of the darkness of this world (Eph. 6:12) — looking believers in the eye, and saying, “We Void Your Warranty” of “Once Saved, Always Saved”:
         that doctrine upon which some stake their salvation;
         that doctrine which gives license to its adherents to ‘continue in sin’ because of ‘a strong delusion’ that supposes “Always Saved” means GRACE will “Always Abound”;
         that doctrine predicated upon such untenable grounds as “neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor power, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of Yahweh” (John 14:30; Eph. 2:2; 2 Thess. 2:11; Rom. 8:38; 39).

   But Romans 8:38-39 is hardly a proof text of “Once Saved, Always Saved” because though ‘none of the aforementioned’ may separate from the love of Yahweh, there is yet one thing that will: Your iniquities have separated between you and your El, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear, Isaiah 59:2.

   Indeed, implied in ALWAYS SAVED is STAYING SAVED that will require one,
         giving diligence to make his calling and election sure;
         working out his salvation with fear and trembling;
         watching and praying, lest he enter into temptation;
         earnestly contending for the faith once delivered;
         becoming set for the defense and confirmation of the truth;
         abstaining from the appearance of evil;
         escaping the corruption that is in the world through lust;
         casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Yahweh;
         bringing into captivity every thought, every word, every deed, into obedience to Yahshua the Messiah (Phil. 2:12; Matt. 26:41; Jude 3; Phil. 1:17; 7; Psa. 101:3; 1 Thess. 5:22; 1 Pet. 1:4; 2 Cor. 10:5).

   And after having done all these things, one has but fulfilled whole duty and reasonable service, and but the beginning of walking unto all pleasing, and worthy of the vocation wherewith he’s been called, every day: every one of 24 hours; every one of 1,440 minutes; every one of 86,400 seconds (Eccl. 12:13; Rom. 12:1; Col. 1:10; Eph. 4:1). Indeed, every day, presenting himself holy, harmless, undefiled, incorruptible, separate from sinners…just like Yahshua, and all this, among an evil, wicked, adulterous and sinful, faithless, perverse, and untoward generation (Heb. 7:26; 1 Pet. 1:4; Matt. 12:39; 16:4; Mark 8:38; Matt. 17:17; Acts 2:40).
   Well, “pure and undefiled religion is still, keeping one’s self unspotted from the world” (James 1:27)!

Let Him Manifest...
   So, whosoever has apprehended and comprehended, followed after, reached forth, pressed toward, and attained unto perfection, let him manifest,

         a life that is no longer unequally yoked with, neither fellowships the unfruitful works of darkness, a life that spends and is gladly spent, laid down for others;
         a life whose mind is in perfect peace because of always thinking upon things true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of virtue and praise;
         a life that has no further need to boldly approach the throne of Grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need;
         a life that has no further need of a righteous sorrow that worketh repentance unto salvation;
         a life that has no further need to be transformed from vain deceit, the traditions of men, and the rudiments of this world;
         a life that has no further need to be renewed in the spirit of its mind;
         a life that has no further need to be conformed into the image of sinless Yahshua;
         a life that has no further need of Yah’s Workmanship, created in Messiah Yahshua unto good works;
         a life that has no further need of reproof, correction, rebuke, instruction in righteousness, and exhortation;
         a life that has overcome the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life (Phil. 3:12; 2 Cor. 6:4; Eph. 5:11; 2 Cor. 12:15; Isa. 26:3; Phil. 4:8; Heb. 4:16; 2 Cor. 7:10; Rom. 12:2; Col. 2:8; Eph. 4:23; Rom. 8:29; Eph. 2:10; 2 Tim. 3:16; 4:2; 1 John 2:16).

   Are you getting the picture? Perhaps he who yet professes himself “Once Saved, Always Saved,” might want to consider a trespass of any one of these is enough to, VOID HIS WARRANTY!
