2 Thess. 2:13 …God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
Sanctification is deliverance from the old Adamic life and is a completed operation of God’s Grace in the heart. Sanctification is based solely on the work of the Holy Spirit in the human soul that gives man a new nature.
Sanctification in the above text of the Bible implies when the Church is taken out in the Rapture. Only the Church will escape the Great Tribulation when Satan looses Hell on earth.
- to sever
- to cut away
hagiasmos (hag-ee-as-mos’); from NT:37; properly, purification, i.e. (the state) purity; concretely (by Hebraism) a purifier: KJV – holiness, sanctification, to sever, to cut away.
Holiness, Holy, Holily [Noun] hagiasmos translated “holiness” in the AV of Rom 6:19,22, 1 Thess 4:7; 1 Tim 2:15; Heb 12:14, is always rendered “sanctification” in the RV. It signifies (a) separation to God, 1 Cor 1:30; 2 Thess 2:13; 1 Pet 1:2;
(b) the resultant state, the conduct befitting those so separated, 1 Thess 4:3,4,7, and the four other places mentioned above.
“Sanctification” is thus the state predetermined by God for believers. The corresponding verb hagiazo denotes “to set apart to God.”
Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
