 30 And do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption.8 [By obedience you receive the seal of the Holy Sprit, but you are still not redeemed. George Fox writes of when you are redeemed: "Men are justified by the believing, and in the faith and by the faith, and in believing they overcome, and have victory; and there are mortification, and sanctification, and redemption, and justification, all possessed together in the one, which is Christ, and this to the particular satisfaction."]

8 The Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption. The seal of the Holy spirit is the down payment of the final promise -the union that is to come. See the Interim Reward for more. When you have suffered awhile in crucifixion and pass the test(s), Christ will give you more of his Spirit, Oh! Joyous day! That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, [the word of truth is not a book], the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after you believed, you were sealed with the holy Spirit of promise. Eph 1:12-13. Here is where we hear the good news of our salvation to come and receive the Holy Spirit of promise. The Holy Spirit is given by God to those who obey Him. Acts 5:32. But notice. The day of redemption has not yet come, even with the Interim Reward or the Seal of the Spirit.

The day of redemption is when the Lord appears in glory to be resurrected within your heart and when you become a new creature. George Fox writes of when you are mortified, redeemed, sanctified, and justified, in his writing, The Great Mystery of the Great Whore Unfolded:

"Men are justified by the believing, and in the faith and by the faith, and in believing they overcome, and have victory; and there are mortification, and sanctification, and redemption, and justification, all possessed together in the one, which is Christ, and this to the particular satisfaction. "

Clearly in the above, Fox is referring to the second stage of perfection.
