Salvation Sure and Sealed
2 Timothy 2:19 (KJB) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
I am sure you are familiar with a seal. We commonly find sealed packages and items in numerous places. Secure boxes and containers are the norm today in the battle against both shoplifting and tampering. Letters are sealed to protect the content from prying eyes, theft, or unwanted dispersion before it reaches the intended address. Food is vacuum packed to protect it from harm and to preserve freshness.
But, what is the seal of God, and where does a person find it in this world?
God does not place people inside packages.
But, God does protect His own spiritual family from spoilage, tampering by the devil, and preserves them in this world and eternity. God’s seal is for the same purposes and intentions that impenetrable packages found on this earth. To protect and maintain the spiritual salvation of the heart.
God’s seal is so much more than anything that a man can invent for use in protecting things in this world. God’s seal is sure. Nothing can break this seal that God applies to the life of every sincere child of God. Packages in this world are breached and compromised daily.
Mail gets lost, food is tainted, things are stolen, and things are compromised.
A child of God, on the other hand, is forever made spiritually impermeable against the foolishness of himself and protected from the dark and deadly intentions of satan. Sastan cannot get to the hearts than belong to God.
God divinely seals and preserves the spiritual heart condition of every member of His family. This seal is impassable and eternally secure to the door of the heart for protecting each regenerated soul from sin and the darkness of the god of this world.
