Please try to understand me Im not saying I know anything.
But isnt it saying you are justified by the spirit.
That is to say, to believe in that spirit that is.
You are justified in believing this!
Now if this mean you are now being sanctified.
Then why do they tremble are they not being sanctified.
You know, Timothy said there a form of godliness.
But they deny the power and from such turn away.
Christ said you should leave your gift before the altar.
Imagine that leave your gift. Go your way!
First be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
If I have offended you, by what was said, for that I am sorry.

"Does Justification and Sanctification happen at the same time? As declared righteous, and set apart for service, Yes..
"So now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Believers are washed, sanctified, and " justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. We have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once [for all]. Justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Sanctify them by Your truth."

Jed //Many churches have created a second level of "spirituality" in order to make themselves feel superior.
Very true of the holiness churches as they believe in a second act of grace.
I once attended one of these churches every sunday morning and evening, and again on Wednesday and when I was in their choir, every Thursday. I did so only because I was a single parent at the time and that is where my babysitter went but after she moved away, I started going to a different church.
Usually these denominations put much emphasis on behavior and promote the belief that one can lose salvation. They are truly insecure in Christ.

Many churches have created a second level of "spirituality" in order to make themselves feel superior. Those who are just saved, and those who are at a higher level who are sanctified, or "filled with the spirit". This is not at all biblical. Once you get saved you have everything you need to grow in your relationship with the Lord. You cannot be saved without being filled with God's Spirit. After salvation you strive to grow closer to the Lord and please him more. Everyone grows at a different rate depending on how much of a priority serving God is to them. Therefore, everyone is at a different place in their walk with Christ. You will never reach perfection or complete sinlessness until you meet your maker.

What's true according to the Scripture according to Paul in Romans 8:29,30 is that salvation is an orderly process.
1. God must first love you, and this love of His is unconditional (Romans 9:11),
2. He predestines you to come into this world born dead in sin and trespass,
3. In His allocated time, He will call you (giving you spiritual life aka born of the Spirit),
4. Gives you faith that you will belief Him and repent, you're then Justified by Faith
5. He then starts the process of sanctification on your soul to know the vileness of your sins till you leave this world, to some it's immediate, to others later. God does as He pleases.
6. When you die in the flesh, you will go to Paradise to await the glorification.

Justification is being saved from your sins by the power of Jesus Christ and single event.
Sanctification is God making you more like him. This happens over a lifetime and can be gradual or rapid but never stops. Similiar to pulling an onion apart each layer is a refinement. As John 3:33 says "I must become less and less He must become more and more."

Rom_3:30,Gal_3:8 justify through faith

1Ti_4:10 specially of those that believe.
Belief is not sanctification? Jas_2:19!
Sanctification is knowing!
Joh_17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
