Answer: Before the creation of the world

"For he chose us in him [Christ] before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight." (Ephesians 1:4)

Ephesus was a pagan city. The goddess Diana was greatly revered and people from all over the Roman Empire made pilgrimages there to worship her. Paul began his letter by making it clear that their faith in Christ was not some happenstance based on the whims of a pagan deity, but for all eternity God had specifically meant for them to be in Christ.

It says in Ephesians 1:13, "In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise."

6 Paul told the Ephesians they had been marked with a special seal. What was that seal, according to the NIV?

Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession-to the praise of his glory." (Ephesians 1:13-14)

Paul again shows that the relationship Christians have with God is not distant and impersonal but that God himself, in the person of the Holy Spirit, seals the relationship they have with him until the work of redemption is completed in them.
