Cleansing:

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]Come immediately to cleanse yourself near to this Laver when you hear some filthy words! When you get angry come to this WORD (Mirror) and wash your sins.[/gn_pullquote]

My friend, the sins of rebellion and disobedience must be cleansed by the BLOOD of the CROSS but the filth that daily accumulates on the believer is cleansed by the Water (Spirit) of the WORD. It will automatically cleanse you when you come near to Cross. AN AUTOMATIC CLEANSING!  as the Brazen Altar. But at the Laver we have to apply the WORD to the dirt that it can be dissolved and removed. Come immediately to cleanse yourself near to this Laver when you hear some filthy words! When you get angry come to this WORD (Mirror) and wash your sins. We are applying the cleansing power of the Word, not the reflecting power.

“Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” (John 15:3)

“Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” (Psalms 119:9)

[gn_pullquote align=”left”]I can’t understand your message but the Word of God is doing miracles in me as this Soap is doing on clothes. The clothes know nothing but when the soap and water flows through them, they will get all the dirt out.[/gn_pullquote]

Hilda was a widow who lived in one of the western countries. She was a laundress. Though she was illiterate she comes to church regularly, participates in the Worship with enthusiasm and always praises the Pastor for the message. Pastor was annoyed since she is an illiterate and can never understand the Word of God which is delivered by him and yet she praised him.

One day this Pastor went to pay visit to this widow’s home. The door was locked and he knocked for many times yet there was no response. But he heard someone singing followed its direction and found that widow washing the clothes in a small stream running behind her house. As soon he started to converse with her, she said “Pastor, I can’t stop to thank you for the WORD of GOD you delivered last Sunday on Church, it did great miracles in my life”. Immediately the Pastor asked, “Hilda tell me the truth what message did I give last week?” and her reply was I don’t remember now. Hilda at least do you remember the Bible verse which I have taken? I don’t remember was her reply again.

Suddenly that Pastor replied, “Hilda you are praising me a lot but not with true heart” I don’t think you are being honest with me. For I know that you can’t understand my message.

Pastor you are right, I can’t understand your message but the Word of God is doing miracles in me as this Soap is doing on clothes. The clothes know nothing but when the soap and water flows through them, they will get all the dirt out. Likely the Word of God which you preach has Spirit and life in it (John 6:63) washes my dirt away and makes me whole this I know very well was her response.

Yes! Hilda knew how to cleanse herself with the Word of God. My beloved friend who wants to draw near the Lord, you too wash your raiment “Purely” (THE WHITE RAIMENT) daily with the Word of God which has Spirit and life in it. Then you will be given the CANDLE-STICK MINISTRY and you will receive the blessing of standing before the Lord (I Kings 17:1; Zechariah 4:14). No Laver, no cleansing. No cleansing, no coming to the Holy place.

Molten Sea:

[gn_pullquote align=”right”]Behold, there was no Laver (Glass) kept in the Temple and we could see that the Priests and Kings went whoring and the Temple of God was robbed and destroyed.[/gn_pullquote]

As per Exodus 30:21, Solomon forgot the Laver (made of Glass) (Molten Sea) which the Lord has commanded as an Eternal statute and placed a laver made of bronze (Molten Sea) (I Kings 7:23). Behold, there was no Laver (Glass) kept in the Temple and we could see that the Priests and Kings went whoring and the Temple of God was robbed and destroyed. Friends! Do remember that “If you forget the Word of God which is the Sea of Glass, then Lord will forget you too”.

Nearer, my God, to Thee

When John was taken into Heaven, He saw the Sea of Glass mingled with fire before the Temple of God (Revelation 15:2). Behold, the Conquerors in Christ were standing before this Sea. Harps of God = Gospel or Prophecy were there in their hands.

“Them that had gotten victory, always stand on the SEA OF GLASS (WORD OF GOD) having the HARPS OF GOD (Gospel or Prophecy)” (Revelation 15:2)

They were standing over (The Word is their standing) the Sea of Glass (Spirit filled WORD OF GOD) and sang the song of Moses and the song of Lamb (Revelation 15:3)

  • They stood over the Word (Revelation 15:3)
  • They sang a song by standing on the Word of God (Revelation 15:3)
  • They worshipped the Lord by Standing on the Word of God (Revelation 15:4)
  • They asked the Lord by standing on the Word of God (Revelation 15:4)
  • They “Justified” by standing on the Word of God (Revelation 15:4b)
  • They “saw” by standing on the Word of God (Revelation 15:4)

Then “the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened” (Revelation 15:5). And “the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power” (Revelation 15:8). Friends! Even today Ask whatever you will, standing upon His Promises then you can see that your body the Temple of God (I Corinthians 3:16) will be filled with His Power. You are filled from His Might and Power (Amp). Let it happen in your life. Amen.
