11 For both he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified [not in process, but completed] are all of one;3 for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brothers, [Since he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit, a man must first be sanctified before becoming one with the Lord, who is undefiled and separate from sinners. George Fox writes of when you are sanctified: "a believer that is justified is a new creature, is past from the death which came by sin, and comes to enter into His rest, where there is no sin. He who is the sanctification, is the justification, and so by their sanctification are they justified; it is one and the same, what sanctifies, justifies....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." When you have been born again and protected from ever sinning again, you are sanctified.]
21 That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us3 so that the world may believe that you have sent me. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Once you are in union, it is permanent."]
22 And the glory which you gave me I have given them; so that they may be one, just as we are one.
23 I in them, and you in me,4 that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me.
|Ephesians 5:30 |
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh and of his bones.4
