Week 1: God’s Eternal Purpose and His Economy

II. God selected and predestinated many people to be His sons – Eph. 1:4-5: (continued)

C. God the Father chose us to be holy by predestinating us unto sonship – Eph. 1:4-5:
1. This is the divine sanctification for the divine sonship as the center of the divine economy and the central thought of the revelation in the New Testament – Heb. 2:10-11; 1 Thes. 5:23; Rev. 21:2, 7.
2. In order to be sanctified for sonship, we must care for the sanctifying Spirit speaking and working in our spirit – Rom. 8:4, 6; 15:16.

Hebrews 2:10-11 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and through whom are all things, in leading many sons into glory, to make the Author of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brothers,

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 21:7 He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be God to him, and he will be a son to Me.

Romans 16:20 Now the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
