“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification,… 1 Thessalonian 4:3. Sanctification merely means a place of being set apart as holiness also means. Were not like the rest of the world around us, we’re to be different. A believer is not to be an odd ball or some kind of kook that the world laughs at, but we are to be different in a way that our lifestyle is pleasing unto God not our self nor others, after all we are of royalty we are not to look nor act like the commoners rather than pleasing unto the Satanic world around us. But unto God.
23.And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; (set you apart)and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body. There are many who believe that God is only concern about the soul, as they usually say the heart..
God knows my heart Yes He owns you your body is His dwelling place. I have purchase several homes in my life time my house was where I reside I did what was pleasing me. I wanted my roof to be blue that’s what I did, I had it painted blue and I was happy with it simply because it was different there was not another one like it.
We the believers the born from above ones this is the new you, the old you which was left in the grave when Christ rose that was your earthly birth, you are that new creation that God said you are…every thing is different now you belongs to God body mind and soul. we are not functional with out our body… the body is the house for the soul your (spirit) when a believer dies the body goes back to the dust from where it was made, your soul (spirit) if you are a believer your spirit goes to heaven you are not there bodily there is a body reserve for you but not at this time. We serve an orderly God
for those who choose the devil…they are in hell you can read this in Luke 16:19 The rich man and Lazarus… that is their spirit is in hell, they also will receive a new body that is fit for eternity in the lake of fire. Therefor no one will have an excuse when they come before God. Every person that have born in this world have to appear before Him. The Resurrection is when the believers will receive their new body the bible said the dead in Christ shall rise first then those the believers that remain shall follow. this only happens one, He said blessed are those who are in the first resurrection, why because the unbelievers will be left behind in the tribulation, but they all shall die this earth will be destroy.
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
I pray s that if only one person Eyes may open up and grasp this chance for Eternal life,Time is short Eternity is a long time to spend in the lake of fire.
