Many Christians have been resurrected but not sealed.

Ephesians 1:13

Jesus Christ, God has sealed [them] in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise. Every believer is given the very Holy Spirit of God the moment he trusts in Christ. “You are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwell-s in you,” Paul declares (Rom. 8:9a). Conversely, he goes on to say, “If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him” (v. 9b).
The seal of God’s Spirit in the believer signifies four primary things: security, authenticity, ownership, and authority.

Security

In ancient times the seal of a king, prince, or noble represented security and inviolability. When Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den, King Darius, along with his nobles, placed their seals on the stone placed over the entrance to the den, “so that nothing might be changed in regard to Daniel” (Dan. 6:17). Any person but the king who broke or disturbed that seal would likely have forfeited his life. In a similar way the tomb where Jesus was buried was sealed. Fearing that Jesus’ disciples might steal His body and falsely claim His resurrection, the Jewish leaders obtained Pilate’s permission to place a seal on the stone and to guard it with soldiers (Matt. 27:62–66).

In an infinitely greater way, the Holy Spirit secures each believer, marking him with His own inviolable seal.

Authenticity

When God gives us His Holy Spirit, it is as if He stamps us with a seal that reads, “This person belongs to Me and is an authentic citizen of My divine kingdom and member of My divine family.”

Ownership

When the Holy Spirit seals believers, He marks them as God’s divine possessions, who from that moment on entirely and eternally belong to Him, The Spirit’s seal declares the transaction of salvation as divinely official and final.
(victims all of the time)

Authority

When Christians are sealed with the Holy Spirit they are delegated to proclaim, teach, minister, and defend God’s Word and His gospel with the Lord’s own authority.

(we give up, instead of walking in authority)

Victorious Christian living. It is normal to live in victory.
No need to live in stress, etc.
Get stressed out the referee blows his whistle, getting stressed out over nothing.
You are not a disciple if you do not get under a cross, pick one up. (kills carnal desires)
You’ve never been crucified otherwise!
i am crucified with Christ. i still live.
Your flesh is not dead because you do not sacrifice your pleasure for Christ.
My flesh has been resurrected (some people stop sinning because they can’t do it anymore. You should stop sinning because you love Christ.
You love your pleasure more than His desire.

Sin no longer has authority in my life!

Hallelujah! 😀
You (alone) will not find pratical applications of spiritual truth.
You will only find it in faith!
When the spouse is acting crazy?
Jesus is Lord!
Facing sexual temptation?

Jesus is Lord!
Don’t have any $?

Jesus is Lord!

Your cross is somebody’s salvation!

Victorious Christian Living
Jesus is Lord!

( Stop living in condemnation!)
