THE SEAL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR THE DAY OF REDEMPTION
At this point in time The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit is going to help us understand in a deeper way, the essence of a fellowship with The LORD through the help of The Holy Spirit.
The First point to note is that when we hear the word of God (The gospel of The LORD Jesus Christ) by reading the word of God or the word of God being preached to us, and become convicted in our hearts concerning The Word of The LORD and believe in the word of God, then we essentially receive salvation through The LORD Jesus Christ (because He is the word of God). At that particular point when we welcome The LORD Jesus Christ into our life and believe in Him as our LORD, Master and Saviour, then at that very moment there is a very fundamental Spiritual shift and event that takes place, and that is: We Become Sealed by The Holy Spirit. This seal of The Holy Spirit remains upon us for the day of redemption (The day of Rapture or the day of our transition from the earth through physical death, whichever comes first). The Holy Spirit acts as the witness of our salvation and acts as the guarantee of our inheritance in Heaven; kept for the redeemed of The LORD Jesus Christ, who have been purchased from the earth through the ultimate price He paid at the cross of Calvary through the shedding of His Precious Blood as the ultimate sacrifice to atone for the sins of those who believe in Him and receive Him as their LORD, Master and saviour. This is very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 1: 13-14 which states as follows: “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.”
The Second point that we need to note is that, as a result of salvation through our LORD Jesus Christ, we are now entitled to the inheritance of our Father in Heaven; for then we shall have attained the stature of sonship (and daughtership for that matter), having been adopted as sons (and daughters) of The LORD through the redemption through the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ, who now presents us before His Father in Heaven as Holy and blameless and thus acceptable before our Father in Heaven: The LORD God Almighty (YAHWEH, JEHOVAH, I AM WHO I AM, The Great I AM). All this is for the glory and honour of The LORD, because through His grace He has now granted us citizenship of The Kingdom of God in Heaven. This is very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 1:3-6 which states as follows: ‘“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.”’ The same is also very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 1: 11-12 which states as follows: “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.”
The Third point to note is that the redemption through the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins is meant for the gathering of sons and daughters of The LORD for a one Grand fellowship in Heaven in the Mighty presence of The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit for eternity. This is the Perfect Will and the Perfect Plan of The LORD; that He may gather unto Himself a Holy Remnant; cleansed, purified and washed by the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ, refined by the Holy Fire from the throne room of Heaven and sanctified by the anointing of The Holy Spirit: and so are blameless spotless and without wrinkles. These thus become the candidates for the Rapture of the Bride of Christ and for sainthood in Heaven. This is very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 1: 7-10 which states as follows: “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.”
The Fourth point to note is that having been sealed by The Holy Spirit for the day of Redemption (The day of Rapture OR the day of our transition from the earth through physical death, whichever comes first) when we receive salvation through The LORD Jesus Christ, then we need to pray and ask The LORD to touch us, anoint us and fill us with the anointing of The Holy Spirit. This is the heritage (benefit) of those who are born again (having received salvation through The Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins through Repenting of their sins, by then having believed and accepted The LORD Jesus Christ into their life). This anointing of The Holy Spirit comes automatically for those who have been sealed by The Holy Spirit for the day of Redemption; because their body shall have become the temple of The Holy Spirit and their minds have been renewed for a worship in Spirit and Truth. The LORD shall have created in them a new and a pure heart; a Contrite heart, a Repentant heart that seeks humility, faithfulness to The LORD and Purity before The LORD. Their spiritual eye shall essentially be opened by The Holy Spirit, so that they now see and perceive with the eye of The LORD.Their desire is only to please The LORD, as The Holy Spirit prompts them, guides them, controls them, directs them, counsels them, helps them and comforts them; for then they will be operating under the Wisdom of The LORD and the understanding of The LORD. Remember, the fear of The LORD; that is Wisdom, and to shun evil; that is understanding. They will be Heavenly-focused because they know the hope of their calling as sons and daughters of The LORD which is to partake of and to share in the eternal inheritance in the Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven. This is very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 1: 17-18 which states as follows: “………………….that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”
The Fifth Point to note is that having partaken of salvation through The LORD Jesus Christ and having been consequently sealed by The Holy Spirit for the day of redemption, we then become very powerful. This is because Him who is the most powerful one, shall tabernacle (dwell) in us as temples of The Holy Spirit. We thus shall operate under and through His very mighty power as He works through us mightily by His Mighty Power for the glory and honour of His Name. This essentially means that when we have partaken of salvation through the LORD Jesus Christ and have consequently been sealed by the Holy Spirit, then we automatically become Very Powerful. In other words, all the sons and daughters of The LORD who have partaken of salvation through the Blood of The LORD Jesus Christ and have consequently been sealed by The Holy Spirit are Very Powerful people. The devil and his demons have no power against them (us); because He (The LORD) who is in them (us) is more powerful than him (the devil) who is in the world. This very powerfulness stature is not measured in terms of money or popularity; it is measured by Spiritual power that The LORD by His grace and mercy has granted us for the glory and honour of His Mighty Name. This is very beautifully and very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 1: 19-23 which states as follows: ‘“…..and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”’
The Sixth point to note is that salvation (which consequently brings the seal of The Holy Spirit) is by grace and it is out of the mercy and the love of The LORD God Almighty. That’s why we need to no longer now live as children of disobedience, but should now live a life worthy of our calling as sons and daughters of The LORD, purchased for the day of redemption so that we too may ascend into Heaven at the Perfect Timing and be sited with our Father in Heaven, having overcome the world and its sinful nature. This is very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 2: 1-9 which states as follows: ‘“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”’
The Seventh point to note is that those who have been sealed by The Holy Spirit for the day of Redemption need to embrace true Righteousness and Holiness. They must now separate themselves from the corrupt lifestyle of sins and lusts which is embroiled in spiritual darkness and blindness. They thus now need to set their mind, heart, soul, spirit and indeed body to be renewed by The Holy Spirit so that they now live according to the ways and the requirements of The LORD, and live as children of Light being guided by The Light; The Light (The LORD Jesus Christ) sent to the world to rescue mankind from incomprehensible spiritual darkness and blindness. This is very powerfully captured in the book of Ephesians 4: 17-24 which states as follows: “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”
The Eighth point to note is that having been sealed by The Holy Spirit for the day of Redemption, we must be very careful so that we do not offend (grieve) The Holy Spirit by actions that do not glorify or honour The LORD. This is where the truth then dawns on you and me, that “Once Saved Always Saved” doctrine/perception/teaching is a fallacy and a misnomer i.e a lie and a deception. We must thus endevour to stay truthful and faithful on the narrow road (The Highway of Holiness), otherwise one can be thrown back to the Broad Road (The Highway that leads to eternal destruction). Only The Holy Spirit (Him who sealed us at the moment of salvation for the day of Redemption) can help us to journey on the narrow road (The road that leads to eternal life in the Kingdom of The LORD God Almighty in Heaven). When we grieve (offend) The Holy Spirit by actions that do not glorify and do not honour The LORD, then where will our help, comfort and counselling come from? Because The Holy Spirit is our comforter, counselor, guide and helper. We therefore need to always embrace Repentance for the forgiveness of our sins and walk in Righteousness (following the ways and the requirements of The LORD), Holiness (Set apart for the glory and honour of His Mighty Name), Truth (The knowledge of the word of God) and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ, as we journey on the narrow road in preparing the way for the coming of The LORD Jesus Christ for the day of Redemption. This is very powerfully summarized and captured in the book of Ephesians 4: 25-32 which states as follows: ‘“Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members of one another. “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”’
