Principles:1. Jesus has sanctified Himself for the work of the Father’s ministry, so that the disciples would have a sufficient foundation in which to work from.
2. He demonstrated how to build the Edification Complex of the Soul (ECS), which causes one to walk in the plan of God towards its fulfillment.
3. He was about to demonstrate the power of the ECS by enduring tremendous hostility and abuse on His way to the Cross, yet without sin as the sacrificial Lamb before its shearers.
4. It was for our benefit that Jesus built His very own ECS in order to fulfill the Plan of God the Father for His First Advent, which culminated with the Cross, Resurrection and Ascension.
First to the Father in prayer, Mat 26:36-39, 42, 44; Mark 14:32-36, 39, 41; Luke 22: 41-45; and then in the trials culminating in the Cross.
The Customary Present, anticipated ongoing state of the disciples, not only being saved but having their own ECS to fulfill the Plan of God the Father for their lives.
Perfect Participle: refers to kind of action versus time of action. The completed action of being set apart for holy service and sacrifice to God where the present results are emphasized.
John 17:19,“And for their benefit (sake) I sanctify (set apart) Myself in order that they also may keep on being sanctified by means of THE truth (Bible Doctrine).”
