Salvation, A Two Step Process

Hello my friends, I come to you in the spirit of love, however it has once again fallen upon me to tell you what others will not.  I must relay to you the truth concerning Salvation; please be attentive, because there is no more important subject.

Below is the process in which Christians are normally told that we have to go through to attain Salvation, and I completely agree with it, however its only half of the story.  Let's look at both parts.  

(1). Realize first that you are a sinner. [Romans 5:12] (Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:)
(2). Realize that Jesus died for your sins and that salvation is available only through Jesus. [Romans 5:8-9] (But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.)
(3). You must confess with your mouth Jesus and believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. [Romans 10:9-10] (That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.)

Now here begins the part that we are almost never told about.  At this point you are saved and no one can tell you that you are not saved; it falls upon you to workout your salvation[Philippians 2:12 ].  By this I mean that the holy spirit is given unto you to teach you all things and show you all things, it helps you to live a godly life by convicting you when you transgress the will of God.  In lay-mans terms the holy spirits tells you when you are wrong[John 16:12:15].  

Here is where it get's tricky: No man can tell you that you are not saved, once you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord.  However the wise will understand the truth that follows.  There will come a day when Jesus Christ himself must confirm your salvation, this is the second part of salvation.  You have read correctly, one day you will stand before Jesus Christ and it falls upon Jesus to state whether or not you are truly saved and can enter into the Kingdom of God.  

(Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many
 wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.)[Matthew 7:21-23].

These are the true saying of God my friends.  I am a writer and have written twelve books in Jesus' name, but it doesn't matter if I wrote 100 books or preached 10,000 sermons; if I have not worked out my salvation in accordance with the will of God, then I would be doomed to hell.  I would merely be another lost soul in hell who thought that works could get him into the Kingdom of God.  

So what can you do to ensure that Jesus will confirm your salvation at the appointed time?  My advice is to seek God with your whole heart, love God above all else, and listen to his holy spirit when it convicts you of sin.  Repent and change your ways immediately, and Jesus will gladly confirm your salvation.  David was not perfect, but God said that his heart was perfect because as soon as David sinned he repented and did not continue to commit the same sin[1 Kings 11:4].
