The DEFINITION of sealing
The presence of the Holy Spirit is the guarantee of our eternal salvation; He Himself is the down-payment
We are saved in three tenses

Past = We have been saved from sin’s PENALTY (justification)

Present = We are being saved from sin’s POWER (sanctification)

Future – We will be saved from sin’s PRESENCE (glorification)

The DISTINCTION of sealing
It is instantaneous, happening at salvation
Sealing lasts until the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30)
