Hope for the Apostate

I think I'm an apostate. Can I be saved if I come back to God through Jesus?

Although you did not go into detail about WHY you think that you are an apostate, I do really appreciate your attempt to be honest about your condition before God, even if it is a negative condition. It is that type of honesty and contrition that God desires in a man.

Isaiah 57:15
For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. 

You mentioned coming “back to God,” which I assume that you had what you believe was some type of “relationship” with God in the past, but have subsequently severed that relationship. Not knowing your entire history spiritually speaking, I will just fast-forward to today, and the question that you posed.

As far as whether or not you can be saved, if you, as you say above, “come back to God through Jesus?”...WELL ABSOLUTELY!

It is clear from our Apostle Paul, that God’s will is that ALL men be SAVED…(and to come unto a knowledge of the Truth. [1 Tim 2:4]).

And that salvation is, as you say, “through Jesus.”

Rom 3:23-26
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

By placing your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, no works of your own, God will save your soul from hell, and declare you righteous forever!

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

You have eternal security! And peace with God.

Romans 5:1
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Once you are saved from hell, you are saved from hell forever! Nothing that you do, or don’t do, will ever affect your salvation! You become a member of the Body of Christ…bone of His bone, and flesh of His flesh. (1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 5:30 KJB).

2 Timothy 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Lastly, begin/continue to grow with us in our Apostle Paul’s doctrine, and God’s rightly divided Word. That is what this blog, and the ministry of Nor Cal Grace is here to help you with.

Praying for you.

Grace and peace. Ron Knight.

Hopefully this helps!
