"Whosoever comes to me I will in no wise cast out"....water and Spirit = natural birth/spiritual regeneration...and the thief cried "remember me Lord (etc)"..What do we think God expects,this could almost be construed as John 3:16 + WORKS (?)...

Jesus told Nicodemus, you must be born of the water & of the Spirit.

The thief on the cross repented & Jesus honored it because that was under the law.

The dispensation of Grace came when Jesus raised & went up from the mount.
John 3 v 5, you wont get there without it.
Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 38 - 41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19 - 20.

Mima, in answer to your question, Conviction comes from the Holy Spirit. It is not a condition one has to have within him. Conviction comes to the individual from God for repentance. If the person is not convicted he has no reason to repent since he feels no remorse for sinning against God. When God brings life into a person, He not only gives him life, but with that life, comes faith, and repentance through conviction by the Spirit. And all spiritual gifts to help him through his walk with Christ.

Mima: yes it does say that. But the bible also says that no man can come to me except the Father which hath sent me draw him, and I will raise him up in the last day. So you see, conviction must take place before asking for Salvation.

Catherine if we need time to do good work for God after we are saved how is it that Jesus promised the thief on the cross," today shall thy be with me in paradise." What exactly were the thief's good works? Does time to do good works imply that you have a works for salvation belief???
---Mima on 9/21/07

To Rebecca D--does your statement about conviction place a condition on the following statement?" Whosoever shall call upon the name the Lord shall we saved" this statement is made three times in the Bible and I can see no place where conviction is made a condition to the truthfulness are effectiveness of this statement. Certainly I ask "do they want to call", but I do not try to judge how bad they want to call.

The two scriptures that come to mind are in Isaiah when we are told that God's ways are higher than ours (we can't put him in a box, or assume we know his every move), and then in the NT when Jesus tells the theif on the cross that he will see him today in paradise. I don't recall him saying the sinner's prayer, do you? And yet, he was saved right before he died. I'd say that was a bonified deathbed repentance, wouldn't you?
---Kady on 9/21/07

I am sure there are some. But Seldom are true repentance. Remember, Jesus saves. And generally He has work for us to do before we go home to be with Him.
---catherine on 9/20/07

Some are, but I wouldn't want to take that chance. Because there is no guarentee that God will save that person. Just because a person repeats a prayer after someone else, doesn't mean they will be saved. The question should be Is their conviction before they tried to repent? If so, they are saved, if not, they are not.

I've been around several deathbed repentances were the dying was healed and are now still alive and well and those particular ones are serving the Lord very sincerely.

Good & truthful answers..
praise God!
---Duane_Martin on 9/19/07

While we Christians are not in a positions to evaluate anyones salation's as to it's sincerity, I do believe a "deathbed" salvation is very possible. God does not set limits on a persons time of salvation.
---wivv on 9/19/07

I would say yes,
the thief on the cross was on his death bed and he was saved, now that don't mean a person can fool God and just wait until their dying and then call on god...
I don't think that will work.
---Duane_Martin on 9/19/07

YES!!!-I was once called to a man's bedside and told to come very quickly I did so. As I entered the room I saw the man in his State of semi- consciousness I saw no one else in the room. As I shook him awake he knowledge to me and I ask him do you want to pray about salvation.YES!! He said. As we finished his wife stepped out of the bathroom and I looked at her, she had heard every thing, as we turned back to her husband he was dead. Thank you Jesus are that opportunity.
---Mima on 9/19/07

Hi, totally! :) Praise God for deathbed conversions. Sometimes too, (just my opinion though) I wonder if God ministers to the unconscious in their dying hours? I really believe even an unconscious person can be ministered to by God--I like to think my late brother was, at least I hope so. :)
