1. It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the

   Holy Spirit who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away,

   to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace.Heb.6:4-6

*** It is impossible for the fall away people to be brought back to repentance!

    Fall away from the church of Christ is crucify Jesus the second time!

    Fall away from worship to God according to Bible truth remain no more sacrifice for sin! Heb.10:25-31

2. Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. Heb.6:7

C. Err from the path of virtue, sin can be brought back!

2. My brothers, if one of you should wander from the path of virtue, sin and someone should bring him back, 

    Remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins. James 5;19-20

3. If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.Matt.18:15

4. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that `every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. Matt.18:16

5. If he refuses to listen to them,

    tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector. Matt.18:17

*** A pagan or a tax collector may still be converted!

6. The case of the prodigal son! Luke 15:20-21

    And he arose, and came to his father. But while he was yet afar off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell on his

3. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears. Ac.20:31

4. Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace,

    which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Ac.20:32

E. Apostle Peter declared!

1.  Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. 2Pet.1:20

2. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit 2Pet.1:21.

F. Conclusion:

1. Depend on staying on the path of virtue! 2Pet.1:5-11 

   Courage, knowledge, self-control, patience, godliness, love for brothers and love for all.

2. Never depend of calling the name of the Lord will be saved! Matt.7:22-23 Jesus may call these people evildoers!
