One of the promises of God. Hebrews 13:5 And be content with such things as ye have, for He hath said, I will never leave you or forsake you. John 1:12 But as man as received Him to them gave He power to become the children of God. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the POWER of God unto salvation to everyone that BELIEVETH, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. God does chasten His children even to taking our life early, but He can not go back on His word. John 6:47. We are all living in sin to a degree, First John 1:8, because we can not be perfect in the flesh. We have to be perfect to go to heaven. Romans 4:6 When we trust Jesus alone apart from works for the free gift of eternal life, Him imputes his perfect righteousness to us, and will no more impute sin to our account.
I do not believe that the Father will take His Holy Spirit from us; however, we can grieve Him by our sin. Ephesians 4:30 I believe that if a person has truly been born again, then he or she will not continue in sin. I would like to share Scripture that reveals the truth concerning this matter. 1John chapter 3, particularly verses 4-10. I know from 39 years of walking with Christ, that the Holy Spirit has done and continues to do a work in my heart. My desire is to please Him, and not to partake in the pleasure of sin that ultimately leads to spiritual death. I believe that many are still in the carnal stage of their relationship with Christ. They may have prayed the sinner's prayer to receive Jesus as Savior, but they have not submitted to His lordship by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who empowers every believer to live a victorious life in Christ!
