|Hebrews 9:13-14,10:10,22 |
13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh,
14 How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purge your conscience from dead works [from your own will] to serve the living God?1 [The third witness in the earth, the blood of Jesus, is sprinkled in the heart and conscience; by which blood you are sanctified and are cleansed from all your dead works to serve the living God and to serve your dead works no longer, dead works being your deeds and words that originated from your own will, your carnal mind, your evil imagination — dead works done by men that are dead to the life of God that Adam lost for all men. Works of obedient faith to God's orders are not dead works and are essential works of life. From the Word of the Lord within: "When you are purged from dead works, you are freed from serving iniquity to serving God. Happy are they who serve God in His kingdom." Dead works also include obsolete works of the law such as: sacrifices, circumcision, tithing, days, sabbaths, foods, etc.]
10 By that will, we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.3 [This water is not the water of the baptism of John. This water is water from heaven, the water of the Word, one of the three witnesses in the earth; by which water, born-again believers are washed — their minds, their souls, their spirits, and in their bodies, with this pure, heavenly water. The third witness in the earth, the blood of Jesus, is sprinkled in their hearts and consciences; by which blood they are sanctified, and they are cleansed from all their dead works to serve the living God and to serve their dead works no longer. These are the events that you must see, feel, and experience for you to be a true believer in the Son of God.]
