The work of regeneration brings the work of sanctification by the HOLY SPIRIT in our pursuit to the Promised Land, our final home. These words from Paul remind us of our duty to our Lord, And He (YAHSHUA) died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died (YAHSHUA) and was raised again for their sake (II Cor. 5:15); and But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him; do you not know that your body is the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT Who lives within you, Whom you have received from God? You are not of your own; you are bought with a price, to then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body (I Cor. 6:17, 19). “Born anew to the ever-living hope reserved in heaven, where our Savior is preparing us a place- our promised inheritance, beyond the reach of decay, unsullied and unfading, this ever-living hope is set wholly on the grace which is His divine favor given us to live a victorious life in obedience and holiness, conforming the soul to His holiness in all manner of behavior, shining His love with reverence throughout the time of our temporary residence on this earth, by girding the mind against sin until the finality of things comes and our final salvation is revealed to us.”
Holy unto the LORD, is the desire of His HOLY SPIRIT for each of us, called the bride of Christ. Being cleansed by the blood of YAHSHUA, we are sanctified by His Spirit to be presented to YAHSHUA as His Bride in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing (Ephesians 5: 27). For now, all of us, as with unveiled face, continue to behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another, (II Cor. 3:18) until the day He comes for us, when we shall be like He is, perfect in holiness. YAHSHUA paid it all in full. Nothing left for Him to do to save us. The sanctified ones will enter eternity where holiness shines the radiance of its purity and beauty echoes love, peace, perfect love and perfect peace! Holy unto the LORD is a sacrifice worthy going through. NOT I, BUT CHRIST! Yes, leaving all behind, I pursue the holiness of my Bridegroom! How about you?
