“…The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. ( 1 Jn. 1:7; top )
Salvation starts by us being born again by the Spirit of God, and it is experiential and not intellectual. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is experiential (and not for some other dispensation). Total cleansing by the blood of Jesus is not just philosophical, but also is experiential, to be fulfilled “until we all come to the fullness of the stature of Christ.” ( Eph. 4:13; top )
Do we believe that the Old Testament was fulfilled through Jesus’ life? Of course we do, and so will the New Testament be fulfilled in the perfected church. There is no sense to fighting its fulfillment.
“So that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.” ( 1 Ths. 3:13 , 1 Jn. 3:2; top )
There are many books and pamphlets and discourses on the power of the blood of Jesus and on blood covenants, and these are good, but we need to experience what these detailed accounts are talking about, not just discuss them.
Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins. If we expose ourselves to the blood of the cross to rid ourselves from all sin, then we become “…partakers of His holiness.” ( Heb. 12:10 ) “…even as He is pure.” ( 1 Jn. 3:3 ) “Be holy, for I am holy.” ( 1 Pet. 1:16; top )
“Having these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” ( 2 Cor. 7:1; top )
How else can Eph. 3:10 be fulfilled?
David’s desire, even in the Old Testament, promotes this by his quote, “I shall be satisfied when I awake with Your likeness.” ( Psa. 17:15; top ) No wonder David was so special to God.
“To the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.” ( Eph. 3:10; top )
