THE HOLY SPIRIT IS CALLED THE SEAL 4-30-23
The Holy Spirit is called the seal. He is called the guarantee, the down payment. He is the promise of a future forever in heaven. The Greek word for seal means God has sealed believers through the Holy Spirit with a seven fold seal. Seal of security sealed tightly, and kept secure in Gods love. The Holy Spirit has sealed us for a future with the Father forever in heaven. Many believers fear the mark of the beast. We must understand that we have already been sealed with the Holy Spirit. I pray that we do recognize that we are sealed by Him.
Ephesians 3:14So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah,
15the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth.
16And I pray that he would unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power.
17Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.
18-19 Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiencesthe great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understandingthis extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God! TPT

2. SEAL OF AUTHENCATION THAT MARKS US AS GOD'S VERY OWN

3 SEAL OF GENUINESS WHO YOU REALLY ARE
PHIL 3:9 So here I am; found in Christ! I was looking in the wrong place all along! My own duty-and-guilt-driven religious endeavor snared me in the cul-de-sac maize of self-righteousness, sponsored by the law of works! The faith of Christ reveals my identity; righteousness defines who God believes that I really am. This righteousness is sourced in God and endorses the authority of faith. MIRROR
Phil 3:9 And that I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law's demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith. AMP
John 3:15 and everyone who looks up to him, trusting and expectant, will gain a real life, eternal life. MSG
John 5:24 "It's urgent that you listen carefully to this: Anyone here who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put me in charge, has at this very moment the real, lasting life and is no longer condemned to be an outsider. This person has taken a giant step from the world of the dead to the world of the living. MSG

1 Thess 2:4 But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the glad tidings (the Gospel), so we speak not to please men but to please God, Who tests our hearts [expecting them to be approved]. AMP
1 Thess 2:4 Be assured that when we speak to you we're not after crowd approval only God approval. Since we've been put through that battery of tests, you're guaranteed that both we and the Message are free of error, mixed motives, or hidden agendas. MSG

ROM 5:17 Death no longer has the final say. Life rules! If the effect of one mans crash-landing engaged mankind in a death-dominated lifestyle how much more advantaged is the very same mankind now that they are the recipients of the boundless reservoirs of grace, empowering them to enjoy the dominion of life through the gift of righteousness because of that one man, Jesus Christ. Grace is out of all proportion in superiority to the transgression. MIRROR
ROM 8:10 The revelation of Christ in you declares that your body is as good as dead to sins demands; sin cannot find any expression in a corpse. You co-died together with him. Yet your spirit is alive because of what righteousness reveals.
11 Our union with Christ further reveals that because the same Spirit that awakened the body of Jesus from the dead inhabits us, we equally participate in his resurrection. In the same act of authority whereby God raised Jesus from the dead, he co-restores your body to life by his indwelling Spirit. MIRROR
7 SEAL OF A PROMISE TO BE FULFILLED-DOWN PAYMENT

6 So then, we are always full of good and hopeful and confident courage; we know that while we are at home in the body, we are abroad from the home with the Lord [that is promised us]. AMP
