Eternal Preservation by Jesse Hendley

ETERNAL PRESERVATION
Jesse M. Hendley
John 10:27-29

Today I want to speak to you on the wonderful fact of The
Eternal Preservation of the people of God. The Eternal

thrilling thing to me, and that is to know that MANY of
these people, though they are not on the firing line, are
going to meet us in heaven! We're going to have some
surprises over there. A born-again person CAN slip and
