Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Security
1: ἱκανός (Strong's #2425 — Adjective — hikanos — hik-an-os' ) "sufficient," is used in its neuter form with the article, as a noun, in Acts 17:9 , "(when they had taken) security," i.e., satisfaction, lit., "the sufficient." The use of hikanos in this construction is a Latinism in Greek. See Moulton, Proleg., p. 20. Probably the bond given to the authorities by Jason and his friends included an undertaking that Paul would not return to Thessalonica. Any efforts to have the bond cancelled were unsuccessful; hence the reference to the hindrance by Satan (1 Thessalonians 2:18 ). See ABLE , C, No. 2.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Casual Security
A number of men are upstairs in a house, amusing themselves with a game of cards. What is that? The window is red! What is that cry in the streets?' The house is on fire!' says one.' Oh,' answers another, 'shuffle the cards again, let us finish the game; we have plenty of time.' 'Fire! Fire! Fire.' The cry rises more sharply from the streets, but the gamblers continue their game. One of them swaggeringly boasts, 'It's all right, my brave boys, yon door leads to the roof, and we can get out at the last minute. I know the way over the leads: it's all right, go ahead with the game.' Presently one of them nervously enquires; 'Are you sure that we can get through that door?' and he goes to try, but finds it locked. 'Never mind,' is the answer, 'I have the key.' 'But are you sure you have the key?' 'Oh, yes; I am sure I have, here it is; try it for yourself, and do not be such a coward, man; try it.' The man tries the key. 'It will not turn,' says he.' Let me try,' says his friend. He puts it in the lock, but lo, it will not turn! 'God.' he-shrieks, 'it's the wrong key!' Now, sirs, will ye go back to your game again? No, now they will strain every nerve, and labour with might and main to open the door, only to find that it is all too late for them to escape. So many of our hearers are saying, 'Oh, yes! what the preacher says is well enough, but you know we can repent whenever we like; we have power to obtain the grace of God whenever we please; we know the way; have we not been told over and over again simply to trust Christ?–and we can do that whenever we please–we are safe enough.' Ah, but suppose you cannot believe whenever you phase? Suppose the day shall come when you shall call upon the Lord, and he will not answer; when you shall stretch out your hand, but no man shall regard! Suppose you should one day cry, 'Lord, Lord, open to us,' and the answer should be, 'I never knew you, depart, ye cursed!' O procrastinator, if you think that you can repent now, why do you not repent now? You believe that you have full power to do so! Oh, do it, do it, and do not trifle with that power, lest when the power is gone, you find, too late, that in one sense you never possessed it!
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Security
It is only in Acts 17:9 that the word concerns us at present: ‘And when they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let them go.’ The idiom is λαβόντες τὸ ἱκανόν and is translation of the Latin satis accipere. Cf. τὸ ἱκανὸν ποιῆσαι in Mark 15:15, which occurs ‘as early as polybius’ (J. H. Moulton, A. Grammar of NT Greek, vol. i., ‘Prolegomena,’ 1908, p. 20 f.). It is natural to meet a Latin legal term in this Roman court; the politarchs of Thessalonica may even have used the Latin instead of the κοινή. The security demanded might be in the form either of money or of sponsors for good behaviour. It is not clear what is meant by saying that the politarchs ‘let them go.’ It is uncertain also whether the security was for the ‘good behaviour’ of Jason and the rest, for the production of St. Paul and Silas before the politarchs, or for the ‘good behaviour’ of St. Paul and Silas (cf. R. J. Knowling, Expositor’s Greek Testament , ‘Acts,’ 1900, in loco.). F. Blass (Acta Apostolorum, 1895, in loco) considers the phrase a commercial, not a legal, term. In any case, ‘the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto BerCEa’ (Acts 17:10). The haste and the cover of darkness indicate the urgency of the predicament, which concerned, apparently, the welfare not merely of St. Paul and Silas, but also of Jason and the rest, because of ‘the security’ given to the politarchs. It is not open to make a charge of cowardice here against either Jason or St. Paul. It was a practical question of how to meet an emergency due to jealousy and prejudice.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Security of the Believer
Biblical teaching that God protects believers for the completion of their salvation. Contemporary Christianity needs to deal forthrightly with the universal human problem of insecurity. The natural gulf between the invisible, infinite God and finite, fallible humanity makes the quest for assurance and security a very significant theological issue. Slogans such as “once saved, always saved,” and “eternal security” often easily gain a reverential status normally reserved only for biblical texts and become symbols of “evangelical orthodoxy.” Indeed, it comes as a shock to some when they discover that their symbols are not actually biblical terms.
The Bible does teach that salvation does not depend merely upon human effort. God is the author of salvation (2 Corinthians 5:18-19 ; John 3:16 ). God justifies or treats as acceptable sinners who receive Christ in faith (Romans 3:21-26 ). The great message of the Reformation says, No one can earn assurance or security with God. Assurance of salvation is God's gift! Security does not come by absolutions, church attendance, good works, reciting Scripture, or performances of penance. God who has begun the work of salvation in Christians also provides the necessary assurance to bring His work to its completion in the day of Christ (Philippians 1:6 ). God in Christ protects and keeps Christians (John 10:27-29 ; 2 Thessalonians 3:3 ) just as Jesus took seriously the task of preserving the disciples while He was on earth (John 17:12-15 ). We do not possess the strength to secure ourselves.
The biblical view of security, however, is probably best epitomized in the Christian doctrine of perseverance (Ephesians 6:18 ; Hebrews 12:1 ; James 1:25 ). See Perseverance . Christians must realize that their security does not lie in a fairy-tale approach to life where once a person becomes a Christian everything is a happy bed of roses forever and ever. Such a view fails to take seriously the traumas of human life.
The biblical view of assurance or security is rooted in the conviction that when Jesus departed from the disciples, the Lord did not orphan them or leave them without support. He promised Christians that he would come to them and would provide them with a companion Spirit (the Comforter or Paraclete) who would not only be at their side but would be within them, as much a part of them as their very breath (John 14:16-18 ). The Spirit would be their sense of peace and security, their witness concerning Jesus, their attorney with the world, and their guide or teacher into all truth (John 14:25-30 ; John 15:26-27 ; John 16:8-15 ). See Advocate ; Comforter ; Helper .
Along with great promises of assurance, the Bible contains strong warnings that call Christians to consistent living, even as they have yielded to temptations and sin and capitulated to the hostile forces of evil (for example, 1 Corinthians 10:1-12 ; Hebrews 2:1-3 ; Hebrews 3:12-19 ; Hebrews 6:1-8 ; Hebrews 10:26-31 ; James 5:19-20 ). These and many other warnings in the Bible are not merely phantom warnings unrelated to Christian life. They are meant to be taken with great seriousness. They are no more a game with God than was the death of Christ.
These warnings appear in the New Testament within clear statements reminding believers that temptation is accompanied by God's presence. Christians are expected to resist temptations and flee ungodly activity (for example, 1 Corinthians 10:13-14 ). Evil patterns of life are inconsistent with Christian transformation. The writers of the New Testament were convinced that Christians would heed these warnings and resist the devil (James 4:7 ; 1 Peter 5:8-9 ). It is virtually unthinkable for a Christian to do otherwise. The Christian is anchored to the person of God. Evil has to be dealt with. The Christian can find in God an enduring security for the soul. Such is the meaning of Hebrews 6:17-20 . God's consistency is the basis for a Christian's security in the midst of the world's traumas.
The security of the believer is not merely focused upon this life on earth. It has a dynamic focus on the life-to-come. The New Testament writers are convinced that a Christian will take very seriously the warnings in this life because this life is related to the life with Christ in heaven. The Christian, therefore, is expected to persevere to the end (1 Peter 1:5 ; 1 John 5:18 ; Revelation 3:10 ).
The confidence or secure sense of the believer with respect to the life hereafter is rooted in the united witness of the New Testament writers that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the hinge point of the Christian faith. In raising His Son Jesus, God provided Christians with the sign of the destinies and the basis for their security. Without the resurrection, the Christian proclamation would be empty (1 Corinthians 15:14 ). Moreover, in the coming of the Holy Spirit, God provided the guarantee of our marvelous relationship with God (2 Corinthians 1:22 ). In our identity with Adam, humanity experienced lostness and death; but as we identify with the ultimate power of Christ in the resurrection, we, too, shall experience the effective meaning of the security of the believer in the triumph of God (1 Corinthians 15:20-28 ).

CARM Theological Dictionary - Eternal Security
The doctrine that salvation cannot be lost. Since it is not gained by anything we do, it cannot be lost by anything we do. This does not mean that we can sin all we want (Romans 6:1-2) because we have been freed from sin and are set apart for holy use (1 Thessalonians 4:7). (See Antinomianism.)
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Security
A. Nouns.
Mibṭâch (מִבְטָח, Strong's #4009), “the act of confiding; the object of confidence; the state of confidence or security.” This word occurs 15 times. The word refers to “the act of confiding” in Prov. 21:22: “A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.” Mibṭâch means the “object of confidence” in Job 8:14 and the “state of confidence or security” in Prov. 14:26.
Bâṭach is a noun meaning “security, trust.” One occurrence is in Isa. 32:17: “… And the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance [1] for ever.”
B. Verb.
Bâṭach (בָּטַח, Strong's #982), “to be reliant, trust, be unsuspecting.” This verb, which occurs 118 times in biblical Hebrew, has a possible Arabic cognate and a cognate in late Aramaic. The word means “to trust” in Deut. 28:52: “And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land.…”
C. Adjective.
Bâṭach (בָּטַח, Strong's #982), “secure.” In two passages this word is used as an adjective suggesting trust and security: “And Gideon went up … and smote the host: for the host was secure [2]” (Judg. 8:11; cf. Isa. 32:17).
D. Adverb.
Beṭach (בֶּטַח, Strong's #983), “securely.” The occurrences of this word appear in all periods of biblical Hebrew.
In its first occurrence beṭach emphasizes the status of a city which was certain of not being attacked: “… Two of the sons … took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the males” (Gen. 34:25). Thus the city was unsuspecting regarding the impending attack. In passages such as Prov. 10:9 (cf. Prov. 1:33) beṭach emphasizes a confidence and the absence of impending doom: “He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known [3].” Israel dwells in security apart from any possible doom or danger because God keeps her completely safe (Deut. 33:12, 28; cf. 12:10). This condition is contingent on their faithfulness to God (Lev. 25:18-19). In the eschaton, however, such absence of danger is guaranteed by the Messiah’s presence (Jer. 23:5-6).

And no less characteristic of the worldly mind are the uneasiness and distress consequent upon the lack of such sense of Security: God-forgetting anxiety, painful and harmful as it is futile (Philippians 4:6, 1 Peter 5:7); repining over worldly losses and disappointments, the ‘sorrow of the world’ that ‘worketh death’ (2 Corinthians 7:10), reaching its climax in that sense of instability and vanity in all earthly things which, without its counterpoise of faith in spiritual reality, leads directly to the inverted worldliness of pessimism, and by rebound to cynical hedonism-‘let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die’ (1 Corinthians 15:32)

Peace - In relation to organic processes it stands for health (Genesis 29:6), and this, in part at least, gives rise to the employment of the word in the formula of salutation, although the wider sense of Security of one’s actions and interests in general enters likewise into this usage (Genesis 41:16). It denotes the spiritualized, Christian form of ‘prosperity,’ ‘security,’ ‘soundness,’ ‘salvation,’ associated with the word from its very earliest use.

Family - Polygamy was in part the cause of the large size of the Hebrew household; in part the cause of it may be found in the insecurity of early times, when safety lay in numbers, and consequently not only the married sons and daughters dwelt, for the sake of protection, with their father, but remote relatives and even foreigners (‘the stranger within thy gates’) would attach themselves, with a similar object, to a great household. ...
To an Israelite, ‘family’ conveyed the notions of unity, Security, order, and discipline
Inheritance - Over and over again it seemed as if Jerusalem must succumb to the hordes of barbarian invaders, and as if the last remnant of Canaan must be irretrievably lost; but the prophets persistently declared that the land should not be lost; they realized the impossibility of Israel’s ever realizing her true vocation, unless, at any rate for some centuries, she preserved her national independence; and the latter would, of course, be wholly unthinkable without territorial Security

Inspiration - It was therefore highly expedient, and even necessary, for the faith of future ages, that, beside those opportunities of information which the Apostles enjoyed, and that tried integrity which they possessed, their understanding and their memory should be assisted by a supernatural influence, which might prevent them from mistaking the meaning of what they had heard, which might restrain them from putting into the mouth of Jesus any words which he did not utter, or omitting what was important, and which might thus give us perfect Security, that the Gospels are as faithful a copy as if Jesus himself had left in writing those sayings and those actions which he wished posterity to remember. As inspiration was necessary to give the minds of the Apostles possession of the system that is unfolded in their epistles, so many parts of that system are removed to such a distance from human discoveries, and are liable to such misapprehension, that unless we suppose a continued superintendence of the Spirit by whom it was taught, succeeding ages would not have sufficient Security that those who were employed to deliver it had not been guilty of gross mistakes in some most important doctrines.

Abatement of the divine scourge, apparently, brought with it carnal Security to Jehoram
Unbelief (2) - 268); that he is one who will not be satisfied until all his grounds are established; that, ready to believe when he can, he is healthily averse from the belief of mere credulity; that his soul desires ‘not a refuge but a resting-place’ (Toynbee), and that he knows no Security as long as there is one possibility of delusion left? The explanation is an attractive one, but it is doubtful whether it can be sustained in the face of the narratives above alluded to

Election - Thus also, in the experience of salvation, the soul, conscious of the part of God in bringing it to Himself, and hourly realizing its entire dependence on Him for everything good, will desire to regard it and will regard it; and will feel that in this thought of God’s everlasting choice of it lies its true ground of Security and comfort ( Romans 8:28 ; Romans 8:33 ; Romans 8:38-39 )
Joel, Theology of - Some support for the idea of a proclamation to the nations may be found in the reference to those who find Security through the Lord's call (2:32) and the fact that sometimes God is said to extend his call through the work of prophets (Jeremiah 35:15-17 )

Leo i, the Great - Anatolius had been Dioscorus's representative at Constantinople, and what Security had Leo for his orthodoxy? Moreover, he had simply announced his consecration, without asking for Leo's consent to it.

Jonath - But, with such a God as his God was, Jonah had no Security
Persecution - But still there was, in the excommunication rashly pronounced by the pope, merely an exertion of ecclesiastical power, not interfering with the personal Security, with the property, or with the lives of those against whom it was directed; and we may, notwithstanding this slight exception, consider the first three centuries as marked by the candour and the benevolence implied in the charity which judgeth not, and thinketh no evil
