Passage: Ephesians 1:4-5 & 2 Timothy 1:9

The Three Authors Of Sanctification

There are Three Authors of Sanctification. GOD the FATHER sanctified a people in eternal election (EPHESIANS 1:4-5), GOD the HOLY GHOST has and will sanctify those people with a holy calling; a calling that continually teaches and comforts us in CHRIST (2 TIMOTHY 1:9, JOHN 16:8, JOHN 14:16), and GOD the ETERNAL SON sanctified His people through the offering of his body once for all; by the one offering of Himself, he has perfected forever them that are sanctified. (HEBREWS 10:10,14).

Praise the LORD! Our triune God, Jehovah, has set us apart and made us holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: by and in His beloved Son (COLOSSIANS 1:22, 1 CORINTHIANS 5:21).

I fear for that man or woman, as yet untaught of the LORD, who believes that by ceasing from doing some things and in their place doing other things, is in some way contributing to their own salvation and sanctification. (MATTHEW 7:21-23)

Simply put; anyone who believes he is some how collaborating with God in their salvation has not believed on Christ.

I say to that person “Repent of the iniquity of your unbelief and believe on the person and finished work of Jesus Christ. Christ has by Himself, accomplished the salvation of His people!” (HEBREWS 1:2, ISAIAH 40:1-2) Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. He purchased a full and complete salvation with His precious blood for all those the Father has given Him! (JOHN 6:39, EPHESIANS 1:14) The Lord Jesus Christ is our all and in all (Colossians 3:11, 1 Corinthians 1:30), all our wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption, HE is the victorious conqueror of our souls. (REVELATION 6:1-2.)

Beloved, rejoice your salvation does not depend on what you have done or will do, rather in depends wholly and completely on what CHRIST has DONE! From it’s beginning to it’s end, from A to Z, salvation is of the LORD! Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, and it will be well with your soul. (HEBREWS 12:2, ISAIAH 26:3)

Praise be to Father! Praise be to the Holy Ghost! Praise and Glory be to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the author and finisher of our saving faith! When Christ gave us life, men and women who were once dead in trespasses and sins, we are made to understand His words. “...thy faith [CHRIST...the author of it] hath made thee whole.” (MARK 5:34.) AMEN!
