"The Seal of Ownership"

“The Seal of Ownership”

Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us, and put His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 2Corinthians 1:21&22

In these two verses, the Apostle Paul was speaking words of encouragement to the believers in Corinth, reminding them that it is GOD who makes ALL TRUE BELIEVERS stand FIRM in Christ.

At the moment of believing, God ANOINTS the TRUE BELIEVER so that they may bring GLORY to God by the way they live their life. Then the SEAL of OWNERSHIP is placed upon them, indicating that they BELONG to God. The seal in New Testament times identified and indicated ownership.

The Holy Spirit confirms that the TRUE BELIEVERS are identified with Jesus Christ and that they are property of the Almighty God, which is protected by Him. Another work of the Holy Spirit, at the time of SALVATION, is CONFIRMATION that God who began a work in the TRUE BELIEVER will COMPLETE it.

Now, this SHOULD make EVERY TRUE BELIEVER, SHOUT, HALLELUJAH, from the roof tops: Our present SALVATION is just a LITTLE taste of what eternity has in store for us. And the Holy Spirit is the DEPOSIT that GUARANTEES what is yet to come. That brings the out the holy goosebumps. What a PROMISE to each of us that have TRULY given our HEARTS and LIVES to God, and have received His SEAL of OWNERSHIP.

 

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God then you do NOT belong to Him, and the ONLY thing you have to look forward to is an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of UNENDING torture, torment, pain, agony, heartache and despair. God is NOW giving you the opportunity to come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and receive His SEAL of OWNERSHIP, and His Holy Spirit as your GUARANTEE for the things that are yet to come. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
