The Cleansing of Israel


THE CLEANSING OF ISRAEL

READING TODAY FROM: Zechariah 13:1-9

We have been studying about some things that happen after the “rapture” of the Church. In Ezekiel the Temple and the River that will flow from it. In Daniel the world kingdoms past and future and the times of Christ coming, past and future. In our last lesson we saw the redeeming, the saving of Israel by Christ our Lord and how they finally turn back to God and even the leaders knew the people had returned to the Lord and they could see the power of God through his children. These are things that the Bible says will happen at the end of the tribulation period and in the Millennial Kingdom. The “second coming of Christ”!

Today we see the the “Cleansing of Israel”.

Before we can come to know our Lord as “Saviour” we must first realize that we are sinners. We have no righteousness on our own. In fact the Bible says:

Isa 64:6  But we are all as an unclean thing, and [all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags]; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

We know as being unrighteous we could not possibly stand before a “Righteous God”. Every sinner needs a cleansing before God will accept us into His beloved family.

THERE IS ONLY ONE “CLEANSING” RECOGNIZED OF GOD:

Rev 1:5 SAYS  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. [Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood],
Rev 1:6  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

WE WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THIS UNTIL WE SEE JESUS:

Php 4:7 SAYS  [And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding], shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

PRAISE GOD FOR HIS MERCY AND GRACE!

There are basically two views of mankind:

1.) That mankind is basically good, that man is good in his heart but will sometimes do bad things and need teaching and understanding to make them perfect.

THIS IS THE HUMANISTIC POINT OF VIEW!
I IMMEDIATELY ASK MYSELF WHO IS THIS PERFECT TEACHER HERE ON THIS EARTH?

2.) The Bible teaches that we are born in sin. Human nature is basically evil. We may do some good things on occasion but we are sinners until we “REPENT” an place our “FAITH” in JESUS CHRIST.

Many get confused of “repentance”.

Mat 21:28 says  But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
Mat 21:29  He answered and said, I will not: [but afterward he repented], and went.
Mat 21:30  And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

In these words of Jesus we can see to “repent” is to be obedient to the father and to go NOT in our own way but to go to where He directed us to go.

If you are a soldier marching and your leader says to you “about face” you immediately turn in the opposite direction, you have then repented your direction.

THE HOPE OF ISRAEL WAS NOT THAT THEY WOULD GET BETTER IN TIME. NO, THEY HAVE KNOWN ALL ALONG THAT GOD WOULD HAVE TO SEND THEM A SAVIOUR, THEY CALLED HIM “THE MESSIAH.”

LET’S BEGIN OUR READING:

Zec 13:1  In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
Zec 13:2  And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
Zec 13:3  And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
Zec 13:4  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
Zec 13:5  But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.

There has never been a shortage of false prophets. Not only in Israel but even in America and in all the World. In fact we can see as time gets closer to the end that Satan has even stepped up his false doctrine and the use of his false prophets. The true men of God have always had to try to rebuke these fakes and try to correct their false words.

1.) They teach “works” for salvation.
2.) They “deny” Jesus.
3.) They “deny” the blood.
4.) They “deny” the virgin birth.
5.) They “deny” the cross.
6.) They use other writings that they say are equal to the Holy Bible.

There are no writings that are equal to the Bible!

1Jn 2:22 says  [Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ]? He is antichrist, [that denieth the Father and the Son].

IN OTHER WORDS TO DENY JESUS IS TO DENY THE ALMIGHTY GOD!

THESE ARE THE ONES THAT ARE EASY TO SEE. THERE ARE SO MANY FALSE DOCTRINES IN THE WORLD NOW THAT THE WORLD IS CONFUSED TO THE TRUTH.

1Co 14:33 says  [For God is not the author of confusion], [but of peace, as in all churches of the saints].

GOD HAS MADE SALVATION SIMPLE:

2Co 11:3 SAYS  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, [so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ].

IF SALVATION COULD BE BOUGHT, THEN IT WOULD NOT BE WORTH HAVING. THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT YOU CAN TAKE WITH YOU WHEN IT COMES YOUR TIME TO DIE AND EVERYONE WILL DIE.

RELIGION IS SATAN’S BUSINESS AND HE CAMOUFLAGES IT IN ANY WAY THAT HE CAN USE TO DECEIVE GOD’S CHILDREN.

(in that day)

What day does Zechariah refer to at least 16 times just in his last three chapters?

Isa 13:6 says  Howl ye; [for the day of the LORD is at hand]; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
Isa 13:7  Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:

THAT DAY IS SOON COMING. “WE CALL IT THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST”. THIS IS NOT THE TIME OF THE RAPTURE BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT CHRIST WILL NOT COME ALL THE WAY TO THE EARTH ON THAT DAY.

1Th 4:16 SAYS  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th 4:17  Then we which are alive and remain [shall be caught up together with them in the clouds], [to meet the Lord in the air]: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

NO THIS IS THE DAY OF WRATH PROMISED BEFORE TIME BEGAN!

Job 21:30  That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? [they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath].

Rev 6:17 says  [For the great day of his wrath is come]; and who shall be able to stand?

THIS IS THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST!

(shall be a fountain)

We saw the great mourning in Zec 12:10 they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and [they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn].

We will now see the joy of the Lord Psa 30:5 says  For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, [but joy cometh in the morning].

WHAT A JOY IT WILL BE WHEN WE ENTER INTO ETERNAL LIFE KNOWING THERE WILL BE NO MORE TEARS!

Rev 21:4 SAYS  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

IT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT BRINGS CONVICTION. WHEN YOU ACCEPT THE LORD JESUS INTO YOUR HEART AS YOUR SAVIOUR, “THE HOLY SPIRIT” IMMEDIATLEY MOVES IN AND YOU ARE SEALED AS A CHILD OF GOD.

Eph 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],
Eph 1:14  Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

That word “earnest”  means the Holy Spirit is our down payment until the day we meet Jesus in the clouds, the day we meet Him in the air. That is the actual day He redeems what He purchased with His blood.

YOU CAN SEE IN THESE WORDS OF ZECHARIAH HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS BEGUN HIS WORK ON THESE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. THAT FOUNTAIN OF THE LORD WILL BREAK FORTH, WIDE AND FREE AND UNSTOPPABLE.

1Co 10:4 SAYS  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

THEY WILL AGAIN DRINK OF THIS SPIRITUAL ROCK BUT THIS TIME THEY WILL BELIEVE!

THE FOUNTAIN OF THE LORD IS FOR CLEANSING FROM SIN. THE SIN OF REJECTING GOD.

1Jn 3:4 SAYS  Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
1Jn 3:5  And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

JEREMIAH WROTE ABOUT THIS NEW COVENANT WITH THE LORD MANY YEARS EARLIER!

Jer 31:31  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jer 31:32  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jer 31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

THIS IS THE COVENANT OF GRACE THAT HAD BEEN WITH THE CHURCH UNTIL THE CHURCH WAS RECALLED. SO THERE IS STILL A GREAT HOPE FOR THIS BELOVED PEOPLE OF GOD.

Rom 11:26 SAYS  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Rom 11:27  [For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins].

ONLY THROUGH THE WORK OF GOD’S LAMB CAN ANY BE SAVED!

Joh 1:29 SAYS  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, [Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world].

JESUS CHRIST IS THAT FOUNTAIN!

Rev 22:17 SAYS  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

THAT CLEANSING FOUNTAIN THAT OPENED AND GUSHED FORTH FROM
THE CROSS!

The fountain opened is the pierced side of Jesus Christ, for thence came there out
blood and water—precious blood, the price of our redemption. Those who now look to
Christ pierced are saved—but this Israel does not see and will not until His Second
Coming.

1Pe 1:18 SAYS  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
1Pe 1:19  [But with the precious blood of Christ], as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Israel, at the end of the age, will pass through a period of fiery trial for purification, after which they will find Christ to be the Lamb slain for the putting away of sin. Their sin and uncleanness finally put away, they shall be restored to Jehovah’s favor.

1Jn 1:7 SAYS  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Verse 2)

WHAT DOES TRUE REDEMPTION BRING?

In {that day of the Lord} the names of all idols will be destroyed. The Hebrew word (atsab) is used here and it denotes the work of man’s hands, the results of man’s labor.

Eze 14:5  That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
Eze 14:6  Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.

Hos 4:12  My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.

WHERE DID THESE JEWS LEARN OF THESE THINGS?

(also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land)

IT HAS BEEN THESE FALSE PROPHETS ALL THE TIME THAT HAVE BROUGHT THE DOWNFALL OF THESE PEOPLE. AND IN THIS SAME PHRASE WE SEE THESE PROPHETS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH THESE EVIL SPIRITS. THESE SAME EVIL SPIRITS ARE STILL AROUND IN 2011 AND THEY STILL INFLUENCE THE FALSE PROPHETS OF OUR DAY.

*****BUT THIS DAY OF THE LORD BRINGS A CLEANSING AND AN AWAKENING FOR GOD’S PEOPLE. WHEN YOU ARE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT YOU CAN SEE THE LIGHT OF OUR GLORIOUS LORD JESUS CHRIST.

1Co 12:2 SAYS  Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
1Co 12:3  Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

THIS DAY THE PROPHECY OF HOSEA WILL BE FULFILLED:

Hos 2:19 says  And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
Hos 2:20  [I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD].

Verse 3-5)

HOW DO THESE FALSE PROPHETS PASS OUT OF THE LAND?

They are recognized for what they are by their own parents.

2Co 5:16 says  Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
2Co 5:17  [Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new].

Those that live will be so ashamed they will dress so they will not be noticed as a prophet of any sort. This is a reference to a true prophet such as John the Baptist or Elijah.

2Ki 1:8 says  And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.

If asked about what they used to do, they will deny ever being prophets and say they are just regular working people and go back to doing work that they once knew.

LET’S COMPARE THIS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO PAUL IN EPHESUS

Act 19:17 says  And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
Act 19:18  [And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds].
Act 19:19  [Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men]: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
Act 19:20  So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

THE APOSTLE PETER WROTE:

1Pe 3:12  For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
1Pe 3:13  And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
1Pe 3:14  But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
1Pe 3:15  But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
1Pe 3:16  Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

NOTICE HOW GOD’S WORD WILL STILL WORK IN ANY AGE, EVEN THIS TIME AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD.

AGAIN OUR TEXT:

Zec 13:6  And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
Zec 13:7  Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
Zec 13:8  And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
Zec 13:9  And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Verse 6)

(What are these wounds in your hands)

THERE CAN BE MANY REASONS FOR THESE WOUNDS!

1.) There is a practice of self-mutilation practiced in many false religions. In these last days of the tribulation and the second coming of Jesus these wounds will be noticed and questioned by the followers of Christ.

Proof:

1Ki 18:28  And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

2.) The Hebrew word “ahab” is used for the word friends here. The Strong’s dictionary explains this word as having affection (sexually or other wise). We know that sex has been a part of a lot of false religions. Even the Muslim claim the 70 virgins in heaven.

Proof:

friends=ahab
???    ???  ‘a^hab  ‘a^he^b (aw-hab’, aw-habe’)
A primitive root; to have affection for (sexually or otherwise): – (be-) love (-d, -ly, -r), like, friend.

Jer 22:20  Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice in Bashan, and cry from the passages: [for all thy lovers are destroyed].

Eze 16:33  [They give gifts to all whores]: but [thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom].

3.) There can also be a third reason for these wounds. These false prophets and those that worship anything that is not God, who are now ashamed of their so called visions and have taught a false religion but now are in  jeopardy of their own lives even from their own parents, and will have injuries and scars where they have had to defend their own lives from people that have grown tired of their lies.

When you are being beaten, you will have a tendancy to hold up your hands and arms in front of your face for protection. They will be asked, well what are these wounds we see on you. They will say friends and family have caused these wounds.

2Pe 1:16 says  For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye witnesses of his majesty.

THESE PEOPLE WILL JUST NOT BE DECEIVED ANYMORE BY ANYTHING THAT IS NOT THE TRUTH OF GOD!

Remember Jesus was also wounded in the house of His friends. It was the Jews who crucified Jesus. He had the nail scared hands to prove it.

And one shall say unto him, What are those wounds in thy hands? – The words are simple; the meaning different , according as they are united with what immediately precedes, or the main subject, Him whom they pierced, for whom they were to mourn, and, on their mourning, to be cleansed, and of whom it is said in the next verse, “Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd.” Jerome and others  explain it of the punishment inflicted by parents. “These wounds and bruises I received, condemned by the judgment of my parents, and of those who did not hate but loved me. And so will truth prevail dissipating falsehood, that he too, who was punished for his own fault, will own that he suffered rightly.”
But wounds of chastisement are not inflicted on the hands, and the punishment of false prophecy was not such wounds, but death. Wounds in the hands were no punishment, which parents would inflict. They were the special punishment of the cross , after sustaining which, One only lived. The most literal interpretation, then, of the wounds in the hands harmonizes with the piercing before, and the smiting of the Good Shepherd which follows, of whom David too prophesied, “They pierced My Hands and My Feet” Psa_22:16.  “What are those wounds on Thy hands? How long, think you, and how and by whom will this be said to Him? For ever and ever, unceasingly, and with unspeakable admiration it will be said, both by God the Father, “to whom He was obedient unto death, the death of the Cross” Phi_2:8 : it will be said also both by the holy “angels” who “desire to look into” Him 1Pe_1:12, and by people whom He has redeemed. O great miracle, wonderful spectacle, especially in the Lord of all, to bear wounds in the midst of His Hands! And He shall say; “With these I was wounded in the house of those who loved Me.” O great sacrilege, sacrilegious homicide, that such wounds were inflicted in the house of those who loved. He will not say, ‘with these I was wounded by those who loved Me,’ but ‘in the house of those who loved Me.’ For they who inflicted them, loved Him not.

Verse 7)

(smite the shepherd)

Jesus Christ Himself repeated this verse His last night before that fake trial. The night before He was crucified.

Mar 14:26  And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Mar 14:27  And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
Mar 14:28  [But after that I am risen], I will go before you into Galilee.

Notice He also mentioned His resurrection. Now God does not often repeat Himself but we can also find this in Matthew:

Mat 26:30  And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Mat 26:31  Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
Mat 26:32  [But after I am risen again], I will go before you into Galilee.

THIS HAPPENED JUST AFTER THE LORD’S SUPPER AND PROBABLY AT THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE. THE BLOOD FLOWED FROM THE PORES OF HIS SKIN THAT NIGHT AS HE BORE THE BURDEN OF MY SIN AND YOUR SIN AND THE SIN OF THE WORLD.

THE DIFFERENCE WE SEE IN ZECHARIAH IS, THAT IT IS THE FATHER THAT SENDS THE SWORD.

GOD THE FATHER SENT HIS SON, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO DIE FOR OUR SINS AND FOR ALL SINS. WHEN HE NEXT COMES THERE WILL BE NO SMITING OF THE SHEPHERD. NO, HE WILL HAVE THE SWORD IN “HIS” HANDS.

WE KNOW THAT THE DISCIPLES SCATTERED WHEN THAT MOB TOOK OUR LORD. BUT AFTER THESE WORDS:

Mat 27:25  Then answered all the people, and said, [His blood be on us, and on our children].

IN 70 AD THE WHOLE NATION OF ISRAEL WAS AGAIN SCATTERED AND MAY HAVE STARTED REGATHERING ON MAY 14, 1948 WHEN ISRAEL AGAIN BECAME A NATION. THE JEWS HAD SMITEN THEIR SHEPHERD ON THAT CROSS AT CALVARY. PRAISE GOD FOR PROVIDING OUR PATH TO SALVATION THROUGH THE GUSHING FORTH OF THAT BLOOD IN HIS VEINS, ON THAT DAY.

WE ARE ALL BLIND IF WE CANNOT SEE THAT GOD IS AGAIN REGATHERING HIS PEOPLE AND WE ARE IN THOSE END TIMES NOW. HE’S COMING AGAIN AND IT WILL NOT BE VERY LONG!

(upon the little ones)

IF WE GO BACK TO THE DAYS OF MOSES WE WILL FIND A SIMILIAR SCRIPTURE PASSAGE. MOSES HAD SENT OUT 12 SPIES AND WE KNOW THE STORY. GOD MADE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ROAM IN THE WILDERNESS UNTIL THAT GENERATION DIED OUT AND ONLY THE “LITTLE ONES” WERE ALLOWED TO GO INTO THE PROMISE LAND.

Num 14:28 SAYS  Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:
Num 14:29  Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,
Num 14:30  Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.
Num 14:31  But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.
Num 14:32  But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.

COMPARE THAT TO ZECHARIAH 13:7,8 ONLY A REMNANT WILL SURVIVE, BUT GOD SAID HIS HAND WOULD BE PROTECTING THE LITTLE ONES. WE CAN SEE THAT ONLY A THIRD OF THOSE PRESENT THAT DAY IN JERUSALEM WILL BE ALIVE. THE “TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE” WILL BE A VERY BAD TIME.

Verse 9)

THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE CHURCH. AN INDIVIDUAL SAINT OF GOD IS TRIED IN THE FIRE AS THE POTTER MOLDS THEM AND MAKES THEM.

IN VERSE NINE WE SEE THE REMNANT OF THE WHOLE NATION OF ISRAEL. THIS IS THE NEW COVENANT THAT GOD PROMISED THESE PEOPLE.

THERE WILL BE NO PHYSICAL DELIVERANCE UNTIL THERE HAS BEEN A SPIRITUAL CONVERSION!
EVEN IN THE CHURCH AGE THERE IS NO PHYSICAL DELIVERANCE WITHOUT A SPIRITUAL DILIVERANCE. YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN. GOD DOES NOT CHANGE NO MATTER WHO HE IS DEALING WITH AT THE TIME. HE IS STILL NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS.

A MESSAGE TO GOD’S PEOPLE IS THAT WE ALSO NEED THAT DAILY CLEANSING. THAT CAN ONLY HAPPEN THROUGH DAILY PRAYER AND REPENTANCE. IF WE ARE NOT TALKING TO OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN DAILY THEN HOW CAN WE SAY WE LOVE HIM.

IT WILL BE A GREAT DAY IN ISRAEL THAT DAY WHEN THEY REALIZE THE LOVE OF GOD AGAIN! WE DON’T HAVE TO WAIT,AND NEITHER DO THEY OR ANYONE ELSE.

TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION!

Psa 51:7 SAYS  Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Psa 51:10 SAYS  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

LET’S PRAY!
