Jeremiah 23:1-2
The Branch of Righteousness
1 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord. 2 Therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the Lord.

There are evil teachers and good teachers. I obviously am an evil teacher. I drive people away by being partial in my judgement and self righteous. When the bible says there is none righteous. It is hard to believe but none of us go to heaven by good deeds eternal life is a gift that one must receive as a little child. That is you trust God will save you and guide you and make you alive and do His will naturally.
Everyone who is faithful on little shall be ruler on much. The Lord gives the same reward to those of the eleventh hour as those in the first hour which is the kingdom and also they could be first because it is not too late for sinners alive to even bear fruit 100 fold since Jesus said there are last who will be first and First Last but one should be happy just to go to heaven but everyone must bear some fruit atleast the smallest amount as Paul says when you obeyed the gospel you had fruit to holiness and the end eternal life.   The person who commits suicide may not be saved but God will judge them if they truly deserve excuse we could err in judging anyone fate it is up to God the number He will excuse could be very few and they must deserve it but what I am saying is they may never have been alive or who had true faith which is evident by works when they were alive or when they die. The bible says if a righteous person turns away from righteousness none of his former deeds will be remembered but he will die for that
Jesus judges the churches in revelations saying they must go back to old works. The person is not saved unless he is alive when the Lord comes even at death so the thief which is death does not take the unready. So Paul says you are all sons of the day and not in darkness that that day should come as a thief

Eternal life is a free gift through faith not of works lest any should boast but there are rewards in heaven but the person must still repent and have the gospel and beware sinning and not being watchful like foolish virgins and die being unaware without the true faith. So you have eternal life if you truly believe Jesus in Jesus which would lead to some works even the minimum allowed to go to heaven. But the oil and faith and trust in Jesus for salvation can run out if you are not strengthening the things which remain and your faith becomes dead. Paul said we must give careful heed to the things we have heard lest we drift away
St. John said he who has the Son has life already and then says to continue to believe in the Son of God. One must always worry he doesn’t have the faith and trust as proven by works

St Paul says eternal life is given to those by patient continuance in doing good. That is why I said good deeds may earn rewards which is life as Jesus also said lay up treasure in heaven. But it may mean by patient continuance in doing good to be patient until you fully believe the gospel that you may bear 30 fold or any fruit to holiness and everlasting life. That is why Jesus said labor for the food which endures to everlasting life and explains the work of God is to believe on Him whom He sent. How can Christ say he who believes in Me passes from death to life therefore it seems to mean believe that He will make all those who believe in Him remember His commandments to do them. But the wise worried they have no oil that is they examined themselves if they are in the faith if they are not produced fruit so they kept going to the word of God to make sure their faith is real. Since why would jesus say he who believes in Me passes from death to life and yet whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them will be like the foolish man who built his house on the sand ? He explains it by saying I never knew you because if you believe in Him you would do His commandments and believe His commandments and know them and all His teaching because God may not give true faith to those who don’t seek to accept His will as He said he who wills to do His will will know concerning My doctrine whether it is from God.

Therefore you would not stay questioning His eternal judgements and that He is the only way to heaven and whatever He teaches you will understand and do for jesus said the Holy Spirit will guide us in all truth which we have by believing. If you don’t really agree with the true meaning of His teachings ir means you don’t truly believe in Jesus for He will show everything to you and the Holy Spirit will guide you in all truth

So St James says faith without works is dead. That is you may have lost it like the oil that is dead in the foolish virgins lamp. It makes sense why would anyone work unless one truly believes
