My writings on I John are not about “what we are to do to be saved”, rather I John is about how to know if we have been saved...evidences for eternal life (I John 5:13)
All salvation is future for those that remain, and will occur on the Last Trump, as Paul clearly said to the callous carnal Corinthians, and be accomplished as Yeshua explained to Nicodemus in John3.
 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Have you traveled invisibly about as the wind lately?
Then you have not yet been saved!
“Those that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved” as Yeshua explained in Matthew 24.
