The Salvation of the Spirit
Justification is Separation from the Penalty of Sin
(Eternity in the Lake of Fire)
This is instantaneous and qualifies you for heaven by changing your nature from human to divine, from Adamic to Christlike.
It is a permanent, miraculous work that God accomplishes through the regeneration of the human spirit or becoming Born Again!
Ezekiel 36:26 says, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you.”
The Salvation of the Soul
Sanctification is Separation from the Seduction of Sin
This is progressive and qualifies you to govern the earth with Jesus during His thousand-year reign, by changing your character to resemble His.
In Genesis 2:7 the word of “Soul” is translated from the Hebrew word, “Nephesh” and means “Mind” or “Mental Creature.”
In the New Testament the word, “Soul” is translated from the Greek word, “Psuche” from which we get our English words, “Psychology”, “Psychic, “Psychosis” all of which pertain to the mind.
This teaches us that the soul and the mind are one and the same thing.
Therefore, restoring your soul and renewing your mind are synonymous and is accomplished by investing quality time in the word of God while allowing the Holy Spirit to conform you to the image of Jesus Christ daily.
This is what the Bible means by, “work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”
It’s all about partnering with the Holy Spirit day-by-day, building Christian character in you.
James 1:21 says, “…Receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.”
The Salvation of the Body
Glorification is Physical Dominion Over the Effects of Sin
This is progressive and qualifies you to reign with Christ in paradise on the New Earth for eternity.
The process of Glorification begins the moment you’re born again and continues every day you live in submission and obedience to God.
This physical transformation is manifested in the ability to live above sickness and poverty in this present world.
It will escalate during the translation of your physical body in the Rapture and culminate after the Judgment Seat of Christ, ending in total victory over sin, sickness and death!
Romans 8:23 says, “…Waiting for the time when we will take our place as sons, that is, the salvation of our bodies.” (Bible in Basic English)
