Jesus has promised not to leave or forsake us.
Hebr. 13:5b, “for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
Matth. 28:20, “and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
When will this happen in our life? When we have opened our heart to Him and have accepted Him as our Redeemer and Saviour.
Rev. 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your heart), and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door (of the heart), I will come in to him, and will sup  with him, and he with Me.”
Then He will come into us and will sup with us and we with Him. This means, that He then will share with us His finished work accomplished for all men on Golgotha. This means, that He then shares with us His death an resurrection, By this spiritual work of Him we effectively will die from our sinful life and take part in His resurrection life. This doesn’t happen all at once, but gradually. He leads us on the way to the finish.
John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”
John 10:11, “I am the good Shepherd: the good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep (image of the Christians).”
Ps. 23:1-6, “The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
John 14:15-20, “If ye love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be IN you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more; but ye see Me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in My Father, and ye in Me, and I in you.”
If we keep our heart continually open for Him, He will lead us out of our state of sin into the state of redemption. He will lead us from the power of sin ruling in us, yes even to the perfect redemption from it, up to God’s heaven, where only is absolute holiness.
On this way of sanctification He leads us to our heavenly Father, into His heaven, where we may live eternally in Him, and He in us.
This is a process! By and trough Him we grow out of the power of sin into the Christ-nature. We then become members of the spiritual body of Christ, of which our Lord Jesus is the Head of us all.
After we have Jesus admitted into our heart and He is able to start His work of sanctification, we may call us “children of God”, although we still are sinners, who still have to ask Him for pardon. Then we are – (in Latin) “de jure” – children of God. This means that from Him we receive the right to call ourselves so, because of our faith and sincere surrender, although we still are sinners. In and through the process of sanctification He makes us then “de facto”, this means: in all truth, sons of God .
2 Cor. 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
1 Cor. 1:30, “But of Him (this is: out of God) are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.”
When we die He brings us to the heavenly paradise also called ‘pre-heaven’, or first heaven, to the house of our heavenly Father, with its many mansions, where we will be prepared for our eternal dwelling-place in God’s Holiness, the New Jerusalem  (see Rev. 21).
John 14:1-4, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many masions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place fore you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”
If we die on this “way of our cross” (see Luke 9:23), the way of our personal cross process, the missing sanctification will be imputed to us in our eternal life, which we then have been entered in.
