The word â€˜sanctificationâ€™ will appear repeatedly throughout this book. Let me say how I am using it. And there is need! I fully accept that the elect, immediately they are brought into Christ by faith, are fully, absolutely, perfectly, utterly, completely, irreversibly and permanently sanctified (have I stopped every loophole?) by the application of Christâ€™s work to them by the Holy Spirit (see, for instance, 1 Cor. 1:2,30; 6:11; 2 Thess. 2:13; Heb. 2:11; 10:10,14, 29; 13:12; 1 Pet. 1:2; Jude 1). In this book, however, I am not talking about that. I do not question it in the least, but that sanctification is not the issue which concerns me here.
Interesting Series! I'm very glad to have found this series, as it touches upon the very thing that I am researching and getting to understand better. I'm also glad that someone has taken the trouble to define their terms, particularly the biblical principle of 'sanctification', which many do not realise has two separate uses in the Bible. I'm looking forward to going through this series, and learning more about the ways of God. Thank you brother.
