What are the verses that say we don't lose salvation?

Scriptures explain that Salvation is:

1) an ongoing process 1 Pt 1:6,9

2) something we work out Phil 2:12

3) something we grow into 1 Pt 2:1-2

4) NOT guaranteed by faith alone Jas 2:14,17,24 & Mt 7:21

5) not a single act of faith 1 Cor 15:1-2, Heb 6:4-6 & Mt 24:12-13

6) Salvation is NOT complete in this life 1 Pt 1:3-5

Jesus' Teaching on Losing Salvation

Matt. 7:21 - all those who say "Lord, Lord" on the last day will not be saved. They are judged by their evil deeds.

Matt. 12:30-32 - Jesus says that he who is not with Him is against Him, therefore blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. This means that failing to persevere in Jesus' grace to the end is the unforgivable sin against the Spirit. We must persevere in faith to the end of our lives.

Luke 15:11-32 – in the parable of the prodigal son, we learn that we can be genuine sons of the Father, then leave home and die, then return and be described as "alive again."

John 6:39 - Jesus will not lose those the Father gives Him, but we can fall away, like Judas. God allows us not to persevere.

John 10:27-28 - when Jesus says, "no one shall snatch them out of my hands," He does not mean we can't leave His hands. We can choose to walk away from Him. Rev. 3:4 - in Sardis, Jesus explained that some people received the white garment and soiled it with sin.

Rev. 22:19 - we can have a share in the tree of life in God's holy city and yet have that share taken away from us.

    Matthew 24:13 shows that salvation is not forever based on baptism or faith we have to continually work for our salvation right down to the end of our lives or this system.

    None. "Once Saved Always Saved" is a false doctrine.

    Revelation 3:5 The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.

    Why even talk about blotting out one's name from the book of life if such is impossible?

    There are none.

    "Once saved always saved" is a lie of Satan. If you think that you only need to say a "sinner's prayer," and then live a blatantly immoral life, you will be in for a shock on judgement day.

    26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[a] and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”[b] 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. (Hebrews 10:26-31)
