Study Children of Belial Within The Bible
If you study all of the above Scriptures and surrounding verses, you will come to the conclusion that not all people are children of God.
The Bible clearly speaks of children of God and children of Belial. The Bible clearly speaks of children of the devil as well. Children of Belial equal children of the devil.
Who are children of God and who are children of the devil?
Children of God are all those who are born again. Being born again means you have believed on Jesus Christ the Son of God and His sacrifice He made for your sin. You know and understand that He is the Savior of the world and that you have everlasting life once you’ve believed on Him. A child of God understands that they cannot lose everlasting life.
A child of the devil hates Jesus Christ and will never once believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world. Children of Belial will continue to reject Jesus Christ and His words throughout their entire life.
Jesus Christ says, “Whosoever believeth on me hath everlasting life.” That’s the end of it.
Once you believe on Jesus Christ, you have everlasting life and are saved. There is nothing else that can save you BUT Jesus Christ. Baptism doesn’t save you. Religion doesn’t save you. Going to church doesn’t save you. Jesus Christ alone saves you. That’s it. Believe on Him, and you have everlasting life.
