Salvation through (with) Sanctification
2nd Thessalonians 2:13-15

13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through (in, with) sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the Truth: (See the sprinkling of the Blood of Jesus Christ 1 Peter 1:2, and Hebrews 10:19-25. )
Whereunto He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by Word, or our epistle.


Salvation and Sanctification is of the One Holy Spirit of God Almighty, wherein we, as new creations in His New Blood Covenant, would stand fast in God's Word of Truth.  But when the kindness of God our Savior and His Love for mankind appeared, He saved us; not by works of righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, through the washing of regeneration: By Faith in the TRUTH, We were cleansed from our past sins, in the Serum Water of our Baptism into the death of Jesus Christ.  But in our soiled flesh, we have left off the Spirit of TRUTH's Sanctifying Blood of Holy Communion that separates our redeemed souls from our present sins of our corrupted flesh.   Also by renewing of the Holy Spirit,  He poured out His Spirit on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that having been justified by His Grace, we may become heirs with the hope of Eternal Life. (See Titus 3:4-7.) Yahweh God, through the abundance of His Spirit of Grace and Life, gave everything in His New Blood Covenant that the redeemed of the Lord would have need of, so that His Spirit's Grace would give them the strength of Christ's Life that would make the sealed more than a conquer in Jesus Christ Who Loved them.

The True Form of Doctrine

But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but now you have obeyed from the heart that Form of Doctrine which was delivered unto you.  Being then made free from sin, you became servants of God. (See Romans 6 verse 16 thru 23.)

That Form of Doctrine was established at our Lord's final Passover Table, when the True Bread of Heaven, in the form of the flesh of Man, ended the old covenant in the blood of sacrificial animals, and ordained the New Covenant in His Blood as the Redeeming Son of Man/Adam.  For the Lord Jesus had previously declared in time: Unless you eat of the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood you have no Life within you.  Those Word's of the Christ of God, are not an allegory, but are of the True Essence of the Spirit of the Word of God, given for the Sanctification of the flesh of the redeemed.  God is not glorified in the flesh of man, but is Glorified in the spirit of the person who is yielded to the Spirit of Yahweh God Almighty.  For God's Unleavened Salvation Bread declared on that first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread: Take and eat: This is My Body given for you.  Take and drink all of you: For this is My Blood of the New Covenant that is shed for many for the remission of sin. (Matthew 26:26-28.)

However, our fallen flesh, remains innately susceptible to the corruption of sin, for the body of man dies in its corruption.  The sinful flesh of man, does not like discovery, and is dismissive of the essential Holy Tradition that the Christ of God ordained for the remission of sins of the flesh for all of His disciples.  From the time of Constantine until now we have followed in the way of Rome, and established through our own ignorance, our own trivialized communion event that lacks the unseen substance of the Spirit of God.  The Roman Catholic institution, with their evolving doctrine of Transubstantiation, have, for centuries, dismissed the giving of the New Covenant Blood of Christ Jesus, for they say it is inclusive in the communion bread.  The satanic enemy of God, remains present in the protestant and catholic churches to foster false doctrines that satisfies the flesh of sinful mankind, but tramples underfoot the Sanctifying Blood of Jesus Christ.  The scriptures admonishes the believers to not grieve the Holy Spirit of God: For even as the Holy Spirit of God is not symbolic, neither is the Communion Blood symbolic, but is of the unseen Essence of Life that is One with the Holy Spirit of God. (See Hebrews 10 verse 26 thru 31.) God's Gift of His Holy Spirit of Life is One with the Serum Water of washing and the Life giving Blood that Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, shed on the cross at Calvary.  Through Faith, we are born into new Life through the Holy Spirit of God, and as children of the Most High, God, His Spirit of Grace will nurture and bring correction to His children through the Sanctifying Blood of God's incarnate Son, Jesus Christ.

We have entered into Covenant with God, not by our will of the flesh, but by the saving Will of God, and the Will of God is that we would cease to do evil, and learn to do well and Live.  We do not stand in the strength of corrupted flesh that perishes because of corrupting sin, but we stand in the Strength of God's Spirit of Life, as children of the Living God, Who is the Giver of His Spirit of Life. 

Because of the trite traditions of men, the fullness of God's New Covenant of Grace in the Life Blood of His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, is negated in unbelief, for God's Communion Table of Grace is seen as a non effectual tradition that does nothing to negate the sinful flesh of mankind.  And now, even the children of promise continue in their sins of the flesh, becoming numb and ignoring the reproof from God's Holy Spirit, and see no need of receiving His Covenant correction through the Sanctifying Life giving Blood of Jesus Christ.  Jesus, the Living Vine, declares at the Passover Table:  I AM the True Vine you are the branches.  He that lives in Me, and I in him, the same branch brings forth much fruit:  For with out Me (the True Vine) you can do nothing. (See John 15:1-8.) Even so, without the remembrance of the TRUTH, the Lord's ordained Tradition of Communion, has become an empty tradition without the Life of the Spirit, just like faith without works is dead.  Holy Communion is God's Living Memorial of Love given for the sanctification of the heart of the person that from the core of their being, repents from sin, and returns to God.  The Spirit of Life flows through the only True Vine of God's only begotten Son, and if the flow of the Spirit is being stifled because of the corruption of unbelieving sin, then the branch within the Vine will die, and fall away from the Life Source that is in the Blood of the Vine.

Apparently, as a warning to us, Ananias with his wife Sapphira were self deceived within their own covetous hearts and broke covenant with Holy Holy, Holy God Almighty, and forfeited their lives with lies. (See Acts 5 verse 1 thru 11.)

16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, Who has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17 Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.  And they overcame the evil one by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Revelation 12:10-11.)

With  the coming of God's Salvation in Christ Jesus, heresies continue to flourish through the same spirit of Antichrist that bought mankind into captivity.  In our corrupted humanity, we are all guilty before God, and our minds of flesh will inevitably center on the call of our own self serving flesh, causing us to forget God's doctrine of the crucified incarnate Christ of God, and we, his called disciples with Him.  In our cultivated unbelief's, we have ignored God's Covenant provisions given through His Spirit for the remission of sins for the Body of Christ, and have settled into our own little clicks of special privileged doctrines.  We will all be tried by our own sins of idolatrous separation from holy, holy, holy God Almighty.  Our unrepentant sins are producing more sin, and the folly of our sins will seek us out, and bring its own rewards in the sowing and the reaping to the flesh.

The millennial reign of the Christ of God, and the events within this time period are yet to be fully revealed.
