Sealed By The Testimony Of JESUS For The Day Of Redemption?

Oct 6, 2014, 11:46 AM |

...In HIM, you also, after listening to The Message Of Truth, The Gospel Of your Salvation - having also believed, you were Sealed In HIM With The HOLY SPIRIT Of Promise, WHO Is Given As A Pledge Of our Inheritance, with A View To The Redemption Of Possession, to The Praise Of HIS Glory... Ephesians 1:13-14.


In The New Covenant Which JESUS CHRIST Inaugurated Through HIS Flesh, we In CHRIST JESUS; Through The Gospel Of our Salvation, are Called By GOD to Two Commandments;

...And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and put HIM to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall i do to Inherit Eternal Life?" And HE Said To him, "What Is Written In The Law? How does It read to you?" And he answered and said, "You shall love The LORD your GOD with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and you neighbour as yourself." And HE Said To him, "You have answered correctly; Do this, and you will Live."... Luke 10:25-28.



Through the freewill Given By GOD To all, for us to choose whether to serve GOD or not to serve GOD; whether to believe or not to believe, after obtaining our introduction by faith into The Grace In Which we Stand, through which then By Grace through obedience of faith The Love Of GOD Is Poured Out within our hearts Through The HOLY SPIRIT Of Promise that we may be Justified and stand before HIM, spotless and blameless;


...Therefore having been Justified by faith, we have Peace with GOD Through our LORD JESUS CHRIST, Through WHOM Also we have Obtained our Introduction by faith Into This Grace In Which we Stand; and we exult in Hope Of The Glory Of GOD. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character, and proven character, Hope; and Hope does not disappoint, because The Love Of GOD Has Been Poured Out within our hearts Through The HOLY SPIRIT WHO Was Given To us... Romans 5:1-5.


This Word, Written in another place, Paul's stewardship as an Apostle to fully carry out The Word Of GOD, that is, to fufill, to make replete HIS Saints; well supplied in The Knowledge Of HIS Word, being The Will and The Purpose Of GOD for all to Make Known The Riches Of The Glory of This Mystery, Which Is CHRIST In you,The Hope Of Glory ( Colossians 1:24-29 ). And It Is This Hope Alone that does not disappoint, and the reason why it cannot disappoint? because The Love Of GOD Has Been Poured Out within our hearts Through The HOLY SPIRIT WHO Was Given To us.


CHRIST In us, HE WHO Is our Hope.


Paul and the Brethren 'Proclaimed HIM, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all Wisdom, that we may present every man Complete ( Perfect ) In CHRIST. These are those who are Sealed, Made Ready for The Day Of Redemption. As opposed to those who lived not believing; living by faith as means faith, and The Grace Of GOD To them will have proved vain.


...Therefore putting aside all filthiness and that remains of wickedness, in humility Receive The Word Implanted, Which Is Able To Save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of The Word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves... James 1:21-22.


...for not the hearers of The Law are Just before GOD, but the doers of The Law will be Justified... Romans 2:13


The Law is established through faith ( Romans 3:31 ).


Now i make known to you, Brethren, The Gospel Which i preached to you, Which you also received, in Which you also stand, By Which also you are Saved, if you hold fast The Word Which i preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:1-2.


Through our freewill to obey and to serve GOD, as is The Commandment Given just as GOD Commanded Israel, Deuteronomy 6:5, Leviticus 19:17-18, being to listen to and to commit to; to entrust oneself to; to believe in; all of these things describe what truly means to have faith in The Commandments, which, now that Grace Has Come; The New Covenant In HIS Blood, then is Given The Love Which Is The fulfillment of The Law; because through obedience this has then resulted in The Love Of GOD being Poured out within our hearts Through The HOLY SPIRIT Of Promise WHO Was Given To us. This is what means for us to be Sealed with The HOLY SPIRIT Of Promise.


..."Therefore. however you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this Is The Law And the Prophets. Matthew 7:12.


It most surely does not mean that because you were born again, Baptized In The Name Of GOD, that you are then Sealed with a Seal that cannot be forfeited in any way. The HOLY SPIRIT Is Given As A Pledge Of The Inheritance. There is obligation on the part of the believer, which is to believe; to live accordingly.


What GOD Promises HE Gives. GOD'S Promises never fail. Our obedience to The Commandments can and do fail ( this is not preaching works, but faith; James 2:14-26 ), and if we will fail, then those who will fail and apart from repentance, having lived denying The MASTER WHO Bought them, even though they have been Bought With The Greatest Price; GOD'S Own Blood, have indeed received The Grace Of GOD in vain.


GOD Has Given HIS HOLY SPIRIT As A Pledge Of The Inheritance among the Saints; This Is GOD'S Promise To all who will believe in ( obey ) HIS Only Begotten SON, our Great GOD And SAVIOUR, CHRIST JESUS, WHO Loved us and Delivered HIMSELF Up For us ( Luke 10:25-28 ). And then it is that In CHRIST JESUS all we will do, being In The Strength which GOD Supplies means will be because The Love Of CHRIST Compels us, Given Of GOD; Poured Out Within our hearts Through The HOLY SPIRIT WHO Was Given To us because of and through obedience to The Commandment Given; Matthew 22:37-40; Faith.


..."He who has MY Commandments and keeps Them, he it is who loves ME; and he who loves ME shall be loved By MY FATHER, And I Will love him, and will Disclose MYSELF To him." John 14:21.


...And by this we know that we have come to know HIM, if we keep HIS Commandments. The one who says, "I have come to know HIM," and does not keep HIS Commandments, is a liar, and The Truth is not in him; but whoever keeps HIS Word, in him The Love Of GOD Has Truly Been Perfected ( of a surety Consummate The Love Of GOD Complete ). By This we know that we are In HIM: the one who says he abides In HIM ought himself ( is under obligation himself ) to walk in The Same Manner As HE Walked.


Beloved, i am not writing a new commandment to you, but An Old Commandment Which you have had from the beginning; The Old Commandment Is The Word Which you have heard... 1 John 2:3-7.


In Love; being Agape, just as such men Of GOD as the Apostle Paul;


...Therefore knowing the fear of The LORD, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to GOD ( 1 Corinthians 8:2-3 ); and i hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences. We are not again commending ourselves to you but giving you an occasion to be proud of us, that you may have for those who take pride in appearance, and not in heart. For if we are besides ourselves, it is for GOD; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. For The Love Of CHRIST Controls us, having Concluded ( It Determines, Distinguishes ) this ( It Judges Thus ), that ONE Died For all, therefore all died; and HE Died For all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for HIM WHO Died And Rose Again On their behalf.


Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh; even though we have known CHRIST according to the flesh, yet now we know no longer ( because Agape Now Compels ). Therefore if any man is In CHRIST, A New Creature; the old things passed away ( the original primeval has perished, is neglected; 1 Corinthians 15:46-50 ); behold, New Things have Come ( 1 Corinthians 2:9-16 understood in accordance with 1 Corinthians 13:1-3; knowledge makes arrogant, Love edifies ).


Now All Things Are From GOD, WHO Reconciled us To HIMSELF Through CHRIST, And Gave us The Ministry Of Reconciliation, namely, that GOD Was In CHRIST Reconciling the world To HIMSELF, not counting their trespasses against them, and HE Has Commited To us The Word Of Reconciliation.



Therefore, we are ambassadors for CHRIST, as though GOD Were Entreating Through us; we beg you on behalf of CHRIST, be reconciled to GOD. HE Made HIM WHO Knew no sin sin on our behalf, that we might become The Righteousness Of GOD In HIM.


And working together, we also urge you not to receive The Grace Of GOD in vain - for HE Says, "At The Acceptable Time I Listened to you, And On The Day Of Salvation I Helped you"; behold, now is "The Acceptable Time," behold, now is "The Day Of Salvation" - giving no cause for offence in anything, in order that The Ministry be not dicredited, but in everything commending ourselves as servants Of GOD ( 2 Corinthians 10:17-18 ), in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, in beatings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in sleeplessness, in hunger, in Purity, in Knowledge, in Patience, in Kindness, In The HOLY SPIRIT, in Genuine Love ( Agape Unfeigned ), In The Word Of Truth, In The Power Of GOD; By The Weapons Of Righteousness for the right hand and the left ( 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 ), by Glory and dishonour, by evil report and good report; regarded as deceivers and yet true ( Acts 24:14-16, Acts 28:20-22 ); as unknown yet well-Known ( 2 Corinthians 2:14-17, 1 Corinthians 8:3), as dying yet behold, we Live; as punished yet not put to Death ( Luke 12:4-9 ), as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet possessing All Things... 2 Corinthians 5:11 - 6:10.


Those who are Compelled By The Love Of GOD; Sealed By The HOLY SPIRIT Of Promise WHO Is Given as A Pledge; Through Which HIS Sanctifying Work being their Guarantee, By Grace through The faith; because they heard and believed ( not as the kjv translates in Ephesians 1:13, 'after that you believed' ) It is the definiteness, continuance, completeness of the act of faith. For It Is In JESUS CHRIST Alone that we Obtain Eternal Redemption;


...For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who have been defiled, sanctify for the cleansing of the flesh, how much more will The Blood Of CHRIST, WHO Through The Eternal SPIRIT Offered HIMSELF Without Blemish To GOD, Cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve The Living GOD? Hebrews 9:13-14.


...In HIM, you also, after listening to The Message Of Truth, The Gospel Of your Salvation - having also believed, you were Sealed In HIM With The HOLY SPIRIT Of Promise, WHO Is Given As A Pledge Of our Inheritance, with A View To The Redemption Of Possession, to The Praise Of HIS Glory... Ephesians 1:13-14.

The Righteousness, Which From GOD Is On The Basis Of Faith In CHRIST;

Not that i have already obtained, or have already become perfect, but i press on in order that i may lay hold of That For Which also i was laid hold of By CHRIST JESUS. Brethren, i do not regard myself as having laid hold of yet; but one thing: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, i press on toward The Goal for The Prize Of The Upward Call Of GOD In CHRIST JESUS...
