Part 2 - The Sanctifying Work of Christ
Overview: Separated in the Heavenly Dwelling Place of Christ
Another aspect of the separation that Christ wrought is the heavenly position that all believers are delivered to in Christ. This is modeled in the dividing of the waters by the firmament. Christ takes those in the world who believe and delivers them into the heavenly realm. Those who have received the salvation of Christ are set apart in that they are no longer of the present world but are now a heavenly people, one of God's kingdom. This happens when one who is spiritually dead is born again. Such a one is considered to have risen with Christ to the Father. God "made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
