Part 2 - The Sanctifying Work of Christ
Overview: Separated in the Body of Christ
The separation in day three of creation is between the waters under the heaven and the land. The waters are "gathered together." This results in two separate entities, the "Seas" and the "Earth." As a model of sanctification, with the seas representing the unsaved nations, the dry land represents the body of Christ on earth in the midst of, but separated from, the unsaved. A believer's spiritual position is in the "heavenlies," as modeled in day two. A believer's physical position on earth is in the church, the body of Christ.
