'Does Matthew 10:22 mean a believer can lose his salvation?
'Those in the Arminian position who, believing that one can lose his salvation, believe Matt. 10:22 teaches that unless one endures to the end he forfeits his salvation...
'It is important to remember that the use of words like “save” and “salvation” must be understood in their context. “Saved” often does not mean saved from sin or saved in the sense of receiving eternal life. It may simply refer so some form of deliverance or survival.
'As one considers Matthew 10:22, it is vital to bear in mind the context which is Messianic and in keeping with the Old Testament calendar of events. Stanley Toussaint in Behold the King writes:
'...In the similar context using similar words, Matthew 24:8-31 (especially 24:13), the future Great Tribulation and the Second Advent are in view. As there, it would seem clear that the “coming of the Son of man” is eschatological here also. In keeping with their expectations from the Old Testament, such would have been more readily understood by the disciples.
'The endurance, then, is physical survival. While many will be martyred, a few will make it to the end. Those who endure through the awful events of the tribulation will be alive or delivered by Messiah when he returns to earth. This is not a reference to eternal salvation from sin, but rather the deliverance of survivors at the end of the tribulation as stated in Romans 11:26, where the Deliverer will save the nation Israel from its persecutors. Many will not endure to the end in that they will be martyred for their faith as described in Revelation 7:9-17.'
