    Eph 1:14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
    2Co 5:5 He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
    It is always wise to understand what was written to whom.

    Ephesians and Colossians were written to "the faithful", not to the unfaithful.
    Please see Eph 1:1 and Col 1:2.
    You will notice that these 2 epistles are the ones ...
    with by far the most glorious descriptions of Christians and promises to Christians.
    And I have just given you the reason why.

    Not only that, but God can break any seal He wishes to!

    It is okay to progress out of Kindergarden Christianity
    where there is much milk-slurping going on ...
    to something a bit deeper.

    "Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey,
    you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether
    (slaves) of sin leading to (eternal) death, OR
    (slaves) of obedience leading to righteousness?" (Romans 6:16)

      sorry , I'm only going to quote one verse that says salvation is a gift of God
      Eph 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,

      and some questions
      Gal 3:2 Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
      Gal 3:3 Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
      Just carefully note his use of scripture in the OP.

      Only Jesus speaking to His people and one of the twelve apostles for the twelve tribes of Israel (again... someone writing to His people.... ISRAEL).

      ZB is someone that cannot rightly divide the word of truth.
      All of my ancestors are human.

      Father figure, Son figure, and Holy Spirit figure.
      Col 2:9 (AKJV/PCE)
      (2:9) For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

      1Tim 4:10 (AKJV/PCE)
      (4:10) For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

      Something that was SPOKEN OF since the world began CANNOT be the SAME thing as something KEPT SECRET since the world began.
