security and ground of reliance for the future.

fortitude and that of his soldiers during the winter

Earnest
The Spirit is the earnest of the believer's destined inheritance
(2 Cor. 1:22; 5:5; Eph. 1:14). The word thus rendered is the
same as that rendered "pledge" in Gen. 38:17-20; "indeed, the
Hebrew word has simply passed into the Greek and Latin
languages, probably through commercial dealings with the
Phoenicians, the great trading people of ancient days.
Originally it meant no more than a pledge; but in common usage
it came to denote that particular kind of pledge which is a part
of the full price of an article paid in advance; and as it is
joined with the figure of a seal when applied to the Spirit, it
seems to be used by Paul in this specific sense." The Spirit's
gracious presence and working in believers is a foretaste to
them of the blessedness of heaven. God is graciously pleased to
give not only pledges but foretastes of future blessedness.

EARNEST, contracts. The payment of a part of the price of goods sold, or the
delivery of part of such goods, for the purpose of binding the contract.
2. The effect of earnest is to bind the goods sold, and upon their
being paid for without default, the buyer is entitled to them. But
notwithstanding the earnest, the money must be paid upon taking away the
goods, because no other time for payment is appointed; earnest only binds
the bargain, and gives the buyer a right to demand, but a demand without
payment of the money is void; after earnest given the vendor cannot sell the
goods to another, without a default in the vendee, and therefore if the
latter does not come and pay, and take the goods, the vendor ought to go and
request him, and then if he does not come, pay for the goods and take them
away in convenient time, the agreement is dissolved, and he is at liberty to
sell them to any other person. 1 Salk. 113: 2 Bl. Com. 447; 2 Kent, Com.
389; Ayl. Pand. 450; 3 Campb. R. 426.
