God chose all who would believe to be His sons, from the beginning of time. The plan of salvation was worked out from the very beginning. God knew our weakness and made provision for it. We are sanctified in the Spirit by the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
It is in the Holy Spirit that we are "sanctified" made holy. It is the Holy Spirit of God which keeps us. He would teach us all Truth. It is the sprinkled blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses us and makes us acceptable to the Father.
To be filled with God's Spirit, brings grace and peace, multiplied. That is, when the believer will be rescued from this world into the presence of God. The plan of salvation: Peter does not look at time from a Western perspective.
