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
14 Which is the earnest [deposit guarantee] of our inheritance until the coming redemption with our full possession of the Spirit, to the praise of his glory.5 [You receive the Holy Spirit after a time of obedience, (Acts 5:32), to the Word within your heart, but you are still not redeemed. Redemption is still a coming event that occurs with the full possession of the Spirit, which is to possess the fullness of God and Christ to be a perfect man.]
|2 Corinthians 1:22 |
22 Who has also sealed us, and given us the earnest3 of the Spirit in our hearts.
