Justification and Sanctification
The biggest cause of people's confusion about salvation is the inability to distinguish between the
salvation of justfication and the
salvation of sanctification
The salvation of justfication can be received only if we believe that Jesus is the only savor, and Jesus has died and resurrected on behalf of our sins on the cross, and that all my sins are washed away by Jesus' cross
It takes less than an hour to be saved by grace, and we are free from the subject of Satan and go down to God's grace.
However, people believe that they completed salvation only by the salvation of justfication, and they have a heart that 'Let's live in the world and enjoy it!'
The person who has been saved by justfication
is qualified to move away from Satan's supervision and go to God, but the sin remains in mimd and continues to sin.
So, while continuing to sin, you are forced to believe or promote yourself as a righteous person.
The salvation of sanctification
is through the stage of 'born
agqain', which is born as a new life by abandoning the old man by faith in consist
of the death and resurrection of Jesus, 'sanctification' in which my spirit grows holy among grace and truth, and 'glorification' which forms the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the form of a perfect Jesus Christ.
We need to know that there is not only a door to salvation but a narrow and rough road behind it.
It should also be recognized that the Israelites did not end up crossing the Red Sea when they escaped from Egypt, but they were tested in the wilderness for 40 years before entered Canaan.
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called,
these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He
Matt.22:14 "For many are called, but
few are chosen."
God called us to achieve the image of Jesus, gave us the salvation of justficationthat is righteous by faith, and finally makes us the
salvation of glorification.
So many people have been called by the salvation of justfication, but few have been chosen by the salvation of glorification.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone
Phil.2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have
always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in
my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;
2Cor.5:21 For He made Him who knew no sin
to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God
The representative Bible verse related to the salvation of justfication
is Eph 2:8~9 emphasizes that salvation is not our act but only given as a gift from faith and God's grace.
The representative Bible verse related to the salvation of sanctification is Phil
2:12, which always obeys the Word of the Lord and emphasizes that he should achieve his salvation with fear and trembling.
This is because it is the salvation of justfication that God is regarded as righteous by accepting the righteousness of God on the cross through Jesus as a faith, and it
is the salvation of glorification that the righteousness of God is realized in me and actually righteous.
"Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven
1Pet.1:16 because it is written, "Be
holy, for I am holy."
The purpose of salvation is to be as perpect and holy as God is.
Only when you are perfect and holy like God, you will
be able to live in heaven without sin and conflict.
Israel's rescue from Egypt
1Cor.10:11 Now all these things happened to
them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon
whom the ends of the ages have come.
Almost every event in the Old Testament is a model of salvation.
In particular, the incident in which the Israelites came out of Egypt and went through the wilderness to the Canaan is a representative symbolic event related to salvation.
The Israelites, who were slaves to the whip in the oppression of the Egyptian king Pharaoh, lived a terrible life without hope.
There was only a legendary story that someone would show up and save us.
Moses, who was adopted son of the pharaoh, realized that he was an Israelist, and he turned to God and abandon the position of the prince to save his suffering
Moses, who had been tested in the Midian wilderness for 40 years, bring down 10 disasters in Egypt, to surrender the pharaohs and lead the Israelites to the Red Sea.
Jesus, who was the pnly
Son of God, came to the world as a human being, leaving the glory of heaven behind to save mankind who groaned in the pain of death due to sin.
Jesus, who won the devil's test for 40 days, made righteousness by obeying God until he died, and he saved anyone who accepted Jesus as a savior.
The Israelites who escaped Egypt under Moses found the Red Sea blocking in front of them and behind them the army of Pharaohs chasing.
God temporarily blocked the Egyptian army by clouds and darkness, but if they do not cross the Red Sea, they will soon be killed or taken to slavery.
Moses lifted his cane and was able to escape completely from the Egyptian land through a miracle that the Red Sea split, and the army of the Pharaohs that followed was buried in the sea.
As such, it is necessary to believe that Jesus on the cross on behalf of our sins, and that all my sins are washed away by the blood he has shed from the cross.
The Israelites who escaped Egypt entered the wilderness, received ten commandments, and promised to keep all the words.
However, the desert life was hot, hungry and hard, and the comfortable life of Egypt came to mind and resented Moses, and again began to serve Egypt
god and fall.
In this way, in the New Testament era, the gospel of grace is full of joy, but it is physically painful and difficult to believe in the Lord, and as the complaints accumulate, they
resent God, and eventually pursuit
the pleasure of the body again.
This is because the instincts of the body and the the evil mind still remain
and demons persecute and seduce me.
So you live in a moderately compromised faith with the world, or you misunderstood that you have been saved by changing the truth, or you go back to the world.
Anyone who has been saved will go through this process of hardship, and only those who win this test will be fully saved.
Therefore, in the wilderness, we must believe in God and depend on God.
If I eat the world without eating the words, my spirit will not grow and become corrupt.
In the wilderness, you should not
build a house, farm, and settle down, but
build a tent, raise sheep and move.
Eventually, all the first generation from Egypt, who had been impolite and vicious to God were punished and died in the wilderness, and only the second generation, who was born in the wilderness, crossed the Jordan River and entered the Canaan.
river was deep and difficult to cross, but when they
had the ark of covenant, the water became shallow and they were able to cross.
The Jordan River means death.
General Naaman, who had a leper, took a seven-bath in
Jordan river and cure according to Elijah's recommendation.
Both Jesus and John, the Baptist, gave baptism in the Jordan River, and Jesus was baptized by John
and receiving the Holy Spirit.
But if I try to get a full salvation, my old man struggles not to die.
I try to live with the stubbornness, ideas, instincts, greed, habits and personality that lead me to death.
So those who are only saved by grace and who are not changed in character are increased by arrogant mind and privilege consciousness, and they become more evil than ordinary people.
The Israelites across the Jordan River reached a solid Jericho Castle.
Human power can not bring down the high and solid Jericho castle.
Only God can break Jericho Castle.
The Israelites did not use force, but just carried the covenant, traveled
around Jericho Castle seven times, and trumpeted, and Jericho Castle collapsed.
At the end of the
world, when Christian realizes the truth and spreads it to the world, Jesus will come earth and destroy the kingdom of Satan and open the millennium kingdom.
The last trumpet is 'everlasting gospel'
or 'the little book' and it is sweet in the mouth but bitter
in the stomach.
out of Sodom!
Gen.19:17 So it came to pass, when they had
brought them outside, that he said, "Escape for your life!
Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to
the mountains, lest you be destroyed."
The angels took the hand of Lot, who hesitated in Sodom, and told that you should not look back to preserve your life.
Lot persuaded his son-in-law, but his son-in-law did not believe him and his wife and daughters doubted him.
The day came light after night, and the time of judgment came, so angels forced Lot and his wife and daughters to come out with their hands
Gen.18:20 And the LORD said, "Because
the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their
sin is very grave,
Before that, God came down to the earth with two angels in human form and appeared to Abraham.
God has hinted to Abraham that Sodom's sin is so serious that he will judge
Abraham asked God if he would destroy Sodom even if there were 50 righteous people.
God said that if there are not only 50 righteous people but also 10 people, he will not destroy Sodom.
The two angels who came to explore the sins of Sodom are invited to Lot's house with Lot's plea sitting at the Sodom gate.
Lot usually treated the stranger with good heart, and this usual good attitude led him to salvation.
But the fallen Sodomians went to Lot's house to have a same-sex relationship with two handsome male angels entered Lot's house.
In the threat of Sodomians to give two angels, Lot told them to commit his daughters, but Sodom people did not listen and pushed Lot and tried to enter the house.
The two angels pulled Lot into the house, closed the door, and blinded everyone outside the door.
And the angels told Lot to evacuate his family because the sins of Sodom is great, and the Lord will destroy the castle.
Lot informed his family about God's judgment, but his sons-in-law did not believe because
Lot was joking.
Eventually, Lot suspects the angels' recommendation, but he takes his wife and two daughters out of Sodom.
Angels said that they should not stay in the plains but escape to the mountains.
Lot wants to evacuate to a nearby small town, so the angel permits them to evacuate to Zoal.
"Remember Lot's wife.
"Whoever seeks to save his life
will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
When Lot entered the Zoal, the
LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah.
So He overthrew those cities, all the plain,
all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.
But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a
pillar of salt.
Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily,
therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do
The reason why the wicked can continue to sin boldly is because God's judgment does not done soon.
Historically, Sodom and Greek Crete and Pompey were quickly destroyed by a massive volcanic eruption
These are all places where sexual crimes have reached the peak due to homosexuality, sexual disorder, and prostitution.
When the world war takes place and a natural disaster occurs, it is useless to regret, and we must prove faith by martyrdom.
Those who are born
again christian as a clean bride and will have a wedding feast with Jesus in heaven.
So we must get out of the fallen world as if Abraham came from the Ur where they served the idol and Lot escaped from Sodom.
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers
traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather
than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its
power. And from such people turn away!
The phenomenon that appears in the end
of the world are that people fall into selfishness, materialism, become arrogant, do not believe in God, abuse and murder their parents, are not holy, fall, complain, can not be restrained, like evil, like cheat, impatient, love pleasure more than God.
God tells us to turn away from these people.
This world we live in is Sodom, Crete, Pompei.
People are sexually corrupt, prostitution, same-sex
love and pornography are popular, domestic violence is rampant, divorce rates are rising, people are living in various addictions such as alcohol, drugs, tobacco, the Internet, game.
social crimes and suicide are increasing day by day, women are being swept away by luxury and fashion, and sensational and violent broadcasts and prints are overflowing.
1John5:19 We know that we are of God, and
the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
And the whole world lies under the forces of the devil after Adam's fall.
So people become increasingly ferocious, obscene, cruel, and violent, with the evil nature and the subject of Satan.
Freemasons and rock groups that worship Satan are now openly active.
In the United States, liberals have removed the Ten Commandments stone plate that was set up in front of the court to restore conscience.
in which you once walked according to the course of this world,
according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who
now works in the sons of disobedience,
Because the world is owned by Satan, if
you follow the fashion of this world,
you follow Satan.
In fact, world-class politicians, richs, scientists, inventors, philosophers, artists, and writers are mostly members of the Freemasons who worship Satan.
They developed material civilizations, which made humans pursue pleasure, keep God away, and create humanistic ideas and evolution.
1John2:15 Do not love the world or the things
in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father
is not in him.
James4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you
not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever
therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy
So if you love the fallen world owned by Satan, you can not be loved by God.
A woman who has adultery means a church in the world.
When anyone becomes a friend
of the world, he become enemiy
Therefore, in order to be fully saved, you must get out of a corrupt world.
O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of

Paul, the most eager apostle was also suffering from the different attributes of spirit and body.
wants to believe in God and listen to the words, but the body wants to live instinctively and pursue pleasure.
It is hard to escape from this world that gives satisfaction and pleasure to the body because I am led by the instinct of the body.
Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you,
unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
Jesus said that if he is not born
again, he can not go to the
kingdom of heaven, so it is the core of salvation that has been born again.
It is the rebirth that my spirit can rule my body, no longer under the control of evil spirits, and live as the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
If you live in faith without being reborn, you can not escape from the instincts of the body, and you will be governed by the devil.
In order to be reborn, first, I must be armed with whole truth, have a strong faith, and then receive the forgiveness
of sins with Jesus' cross blood.
And every day, when you live in grace with words, praise and prayer, you will abandon the old man and become a new person, not being swept away by the instincts of the body or the fashion
of world, but living according to the impression of truth and the Holy Spirit.
We should not belong to the world as Jesus does not belong to the world, and we must win the world as Jesus has won the world.
Satan seduces us with the pleasures to keep us in the world, but we
must firmly refuse it out and give myself to God.
John17:16 "They are not of the world,
just as I am not of the world.
John16:33 "These things I have spoken
to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have
tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
1John5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes
the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world--our
Old person born from the world can not beat the world, but new person born from God can beat the world with faith.
After being born again, I am
not seduced the fashion of the world
I also know that the joy of this world was the honey that Satan was to lead me to hell.
Light and Dark History
Eccles.12:8 "Vanity of vanities,"
says the Preacher, "All is vanity."
God did not create this world for us to eat well and live well without worrying about anything.
Rather, he made us
to feel the longing for eternal life, the longing for true love and truth, the will for good and hunger, thirst, hard labor, sickness, debilitating and decaying pains, the fear of life, the fear of death, and the evil sins.
The deeper the darkness, the more we crave light and the more we fall into sin, the more we aim for good, the more we find hope when we are in despair and the more we struggle in pain, the more we find true peace and the more we are in deep sorrow, the more we crave joy.
As a person who has made a hard money does not waste it, he or she cherishes the true life received from God and never returns to darkness.
Therefore, any tests, tribulations we experience as we go through the narrow path of faith will help to abandon my old person without hesitation.
I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity;
I, the LORD, do all these things.'
Light and darkness, peace and disaster, joy and sorrow, good and evil, truth and lies, blessing and curse, righteousness and sin, eternity and destruction, happiness and misery, blessing and curse, love and hate, all of which are relative concepts, and we cannot know the value of good unless we experience something bad first.
A typical example is the degenerate of Lucifer, angels, Adam and Eve, who were created good and righteous, but
A goodly created being tends to be evil, and a evilly created being tends to be good.
So it is deeply meaningful that God created man evil, foolish, weak, and rotten, but through Jesus, the savior, they
are good, wise, strong, and eternal.
But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall
come forth as gold.
Good that are free from evil do not return to evil, wiseness that is free from stupidity does not return to stupidity, and strength that is free from weakness does not return to weakness, and eternalness that is free from decay does not return to decay.
Even in all the difficulties, the saint, who was led to light (righteousness, truth, good, love, peace, joy, eternal life) by relying on God to be saved from darkness (sin, false, evil, hate, pain, sadness, death), will live and be loyal and thankful to God forever in eternal heaven.
When you turn on a candle at night, you know that the candle is light, but when the strong sunlight shines during the day, no one lights a candle, which is a weak light.
This world is dark for God to see, but people are trying to live happily knowing that this world is light.
All the components of this world (fashion, material, status, honor, power, satan, body, sin, instinct, emotion, pleasure, attachment, natural law, survival of the fittest, competitive, scientific, logical, academy, economy) are against God and belong to the darkness that leads me to death.
It is true salvation to be born with true love, words and life(the Holy Spirit).
