(John 17:17; John 15:3-4)
In His priestly prayer, our Lord YAHSHUA prayed, Sanctify them by truth; Your Word is Truth (John 17:17). By the word of His mouth, YAHSHUA created all that is created; by truth He freed us from eternal death; He consecrated us for Himself, making us holy. We are chosen and separated from the world for the purpose of sanctification. Paul confirms with these words: for those whom He foreknew, He also destined from the beginning to be molded into the image of His Son, that He might become the firstborn among many brethren (Rom. 8:29). Once we turn to God in repentance and acceptance of His Son’s sacrifice, we have entered the spiritual realm where He has called us to be in relationship with Him. It is a constant and permanent position we have while here on this earth. Sanctification is the next step to redemption through the sacrifice of YAHSHUA. It is a must for a believer to go through if he/she wants to enter heaven.
