It is written..."Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?" (Heb 10:29)Sanctification is this a on going process or a one time thing?
It doesn't say that it is a "one time event" in either one of those verses.
I guess you didn't read my post.It doesn't say that it is a "one time event" in either one of those verses.
Completely off topic.John 13:8; Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
John 13:9; Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
John 13:10; Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
Even if you are washed... you still have to wash your feet every once on a while.
Again...your version of scripture leads you down the "never done" path to death.1 Cor 1:18; For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
2 Cor 2:15; For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;
Php 3:12; Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Php 3:13; Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Php 3:14; I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Had you included verse eleven, you wouldn't have wasted so much time..
"If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead."
Washing doesn't have to do with washing?Completely off topic.
I do tend to go with the "closer to the original manuscripts" version yes.Again...your version of scripture leads you down the "never done" path to death.
If one has been sanctified, (by the blood of Christ), how can he be MORE sanctified?Sanctification starts at the moment of salvation and continues until we are with Christ.
To 'sanctify' something is to set it apart for special use; to 'sanctify' a person is to make him holy. A person is sanctified through God's Word. John 17:17
1 Cor. 1:30 a once-for-ever separation of believers unto God. And through reading His Word we grow in understanding -- progressive sanctification.
Little by little, every day, "those who are being sanctified' are becoming more like Christ. Hebrew 10:14 ESV
Grapes cannot come from fig seeds.But grapes have to do with figs?
Except when you post here?I do tend to go with the "closer to the original manuscripts" version yes.
Grapes cannot come from fig seeds.
UnGodliness cannot come from Godly seed.
Except when you post here?
You do NOT use the KJV exclusively here, but should.
Neither does the "works of the flesh" come from the "seed" of the Word of God. A man can have the fruit of the Spirit, and at the same time be manifesting the "works of his flesh".Grapes cannot come from fig seeds.
You are trying to have your cake, and eat it too.I was born a "male". I have gone from being a "baby" male to a full grown "man". Am I more of a male now being much older than I was being a baby? No, I am still a male, no more or less than being a baby.
Sanctification (set apart, to make holy) happens at the new birth, but growing from a baby Christian who knows nothing of his sanctification to a full grown Christian man takes a life time to learn of who Jesus is in me. A baby Christian is just as Holy today, even though he may stagger, and fall once in a while, then what he will be in the future.
Sanctification is not a process of attaining things you lack, but a process of realizing who we already are.
Rom 8:29 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
Rom 8:30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]. (AMP)
Neither does the "works of the flesh" come from the "seed" of the Word of God. A man can have the fruit of the Spirit, and at the same time be manifesting the "works of his flesh".
The works of the flesh comes from the unreborn man.There is no fruit of the flesh! The fruit of the Spirit is NOT produced by man, it comes from the "seed", and manifested by the Holy Spirit within man. The works of the flesh come from the flesh, not man's spirit.
The Apostle Peter was manifesting sin in his life (works of the flesh), while still manifesting the fruit of the Spirit.
Gal 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
Gal 2:12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
Man's physical body was not reborn, which is why Paul said...….If we have been reborn of God's seed we will never manifest the works of the devil's seed.
It is if you are trying to be justified by keeping the law.
Personally, I believe 2 Cor 2:17..."Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new"Wrong!!! The works of the flesh come from the flesh which is NOT reborn, that's it is why it's called the "works of the flesh!!" Very easy to understand.
You are quoting what Paul wrote, then saying he didn't say that.Man's physical body was not reborn, which is why Paul said...….
1Co 9:27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
He did not say "I discipline myself and keep my self under control."
Hi, Sue,@At Peace -- Am hoping you'll respond back to # 16. You are apparently a strong advocate of the KJV. But since this thread topic is about sanctification -- I'd be redirecting off topic. I suppose it Could be stretched to respond if you feel that any other version teaches wrong doctrine. So -- what does NKJ say about sanctification that KJV doesn't.
