|2 Corinthians 5:5|
5 Now he who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given to us the earnest [down payment] of the Spirit.1
12 That we, who first trusted in Christ, should be to the praise of his glory.
13 In whom you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the good news of your salvation; in whom after you believed, you were also sealed with the holy Spirit of promise,4
|Ephesians 4:30 |
30 And do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption.8 [By obedience you receive the seal of the Holy Sprit, but you are still not redeemed. George Fox writes of when you are redeemed: "Men are justified by the believing, and in the faith and by the faith, and in believing they overcome, and have victory; and there are mortification, and sanctification, and redemption, and justification, all possessed together in the one, which is Christ, and this to the particular satisfaction."]
