Entering the Stream Supreme assures Enlightenment in 7 lives!

Once in Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
When, householders, the Noble Disciple possesses these seven good qualities:

Not Killing...!
Not Stealing...!
Not Abusing...!
Not Deceiving...!
Not Splitting...!
Not Scolding...!
Not Gossiping...!

and the Noble Disciple moreover is established in these four desirable states:
Unwavering faith and confirmed confidence in the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha
and the Morality esteemed by the Noble ones: Unbroken, untorn, unspotted,
unmottled, freeing, praised by the clever, natural, leading to concentration,
then if he wishes he can announce of himself: I am one finished with Hell,
finished with the animal realm, finished with the domain of ghosts, finished
with the planes of misery, finished with all bad destinations & lower worlds.
I am a Stream-Enterer, no longer bound to the lower worlds, fixed in destiny,
with Enlightenment as my assured future destination...
When this was said, then the householders of the Bamboo Gate village exclaimed:
Magnificent, Master Gotama!...
Marvellous, Master Gotama!... We hereby take
refuge in the Master Gotama, his Dhamma, & in the Bhikkhu Sangha. From today
let the Blessed One know us as lay followers who have gone for refuge for life!
