Sanctification, holiness, Summary:

(1) In both Testaments the same Hebrew and Greek words are rendered by the English works “sanctify” and “holy,” in their various grammatical forms. The one uniform meaning is, “to set apart for God.”

(2) In both Testaments the words are used of “things” and “persons”.

(3) When used of things no moral quality is implied; they are sanctified or made holy because set apart for God.

(4) Sanctification when used of persons has a threefold meaning.

(a) In position, believers are eternally set apart for God by redemption, “through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once” Hebrews 10:9,10. Positionally, therefore, believers are “saints” and “holy” from the moment of believing ; Philippians 1:1; Hebrews 3:1.

(b) In experience, the believer is being sanctified by the work of the Holy Spirit through the Scriptures John 17:17; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 5:25,26; 1 Thessalonians 5:23,24

(c) In consummation, the believer’s complete sanctification awaits the appearing of the Lord Ephesians 5:27; 1 John 3:2 See “Salvation,” (See Scofield "Romans 1:16") .
