Ephesians 1:13 , ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him

But the Holy Spirit is the first installment, He allows us to live Godly lives here on earth, and by this the kingdom of heaven is in us

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,.. that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,

\\"Earnest" in this case means "down payment," not the quality of "being earnest".
Cluny, are you saying God put a down payment on us?\\

I'm talking about the common meaning of "earnest" in the 17th century, at the time the KJV was translated. Haven't you heard that words change meanings throughout the years?

The "earnest of the Holy Spirit" we now have on earth that the Apostle refers to is the down payment--sample--foretaste (choose one) of our reward in Heaven.

Does this help you?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Hi, Darlene . . . yes it probably is Romans 5:5 >

"Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."

So, in us the Holy Spirit is not simply present, but sharing God's very own love with us (c:

And with this I consider 1 Corinthians 6:17 > "But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him."

This is very intimate, to be one with God in His own love.

Plus, the Holy Spirit is changing us to become loving like Jesus > 2 Corinthians 3:17-18, 1 John 4:17-18 > making us "as He is" "in this world" . . . s-h-a-r-i-n-g like this! (c:

"Earnest" in this case means "down payment," not the quality of "being earnest".
Cluny, are you saying God put a down payment on us?

1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1Co_6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Just saying doesn't look like a down payment.
He claim ownership, doesn't he?

"Earnest" in this case means "down payment," not the quality of "being earnest".

If you saw the movie MUSIC MAN, you would have heard the term "earnest money" used to mean "down payment."

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Romans 5:5 - "And hope maketh not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."

2 Corinthians 1:22 - "Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts."

2Co 1:22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
