Hey boys, been sinning lately?…I have, that old feeling called condemnation that keeps creeping around, but, but It’s a continuous thing. What? Jesus forgiving me & you, when I confess it, it’s automatic…he forgives, and it’s just like I have never sinned…
The song says, what can make me white as snow; nothing, but the blood of Jesus. Now if you think about it, if you dip a white cloth in some blood if does not look white as snow. It’s red, Right? Crazy song, what does that mean?
Isaiah 1:18. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1 John 1:7; "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin." ... Hebrews 10:17; "Then he adds, “I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” 6. Ephesians 2:8; "For by grace you have been saved through faith.
Snow soon gathers smoke and dust, it melts and disappears, just like I do in my spiritual walk, but His blood cleanses me.
I’m not talking about just clean, but by a real spiritual purification which can remove the pollution of my nature.
So I got no right to condemn myself. I’m like a baby pooping in my diaper, doing the same sin over and over again.
But I heard the pastor say, even in the midst of your sin, say, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ.”
“But I don’t know what that means,” you say. You don’t have to know, Just say it and thank the Lord by way of the Holy Spirit. It means you trust His Word and what He did on the cross But I don’t understand that either…
God is not a man that He should lie.
Remember in the Old Testament when Moses told the Israelite Slaves to put blood on the door post and lintels with a Hyssop.
Remember they killed an innocent lamb, took it’s blood, roasted it and ate it, then put the blood on the door?
Your heart is the door post, the hyssop is your tongue (what you say)
Those dirty, sinful slaves were saved from the death angel, I’m sure there was some screwing and cussing and stealing behind that door post; but they got saved? All of them.
Why? They trusted the BLOOD! Trust the blood of Jesus. Screw what people say!
But they caught me red handed…I don’t care...I am forgiven, I am healed, I am the righteousness of God in Christ.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus!
I trust the Blood of Jesus. I trust what He did on the Cross for me!
