Scripture: “‘But the man who is unclean and does not purify himself, that person shall be cut off from among the assembly, because he has defiled the sanctuary of the Lord. The water of purification has not been sprinkled on him; he is unclean. It shall be a perpetual statute for them. He who sprinkles the water of purification shall wash his clothes; and he who touches the water of purification shall be unclean until evening. Whatever the unclean person touches shall be unclean; and the person who touches it shall be unclean until evening.’ ”” Numbers 19:20-22 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/num.19.20-22.NKJV
It’s Friday special! To update our partners in Gen1toRev22, we’ve moved away from social media and continued to see stable listening numbers. The audience has begun to grow more consistent for which all credit goes to the Lord. It is an encouragement to hear of others being encouraged through this simple podcast.
It’s been a busy season full of both productivity and much needed refueling. Trying to personally focus on balanced rest after a very busy/stressful time since 2020. To be more often like Mary, than do more like Martha.
• If someone chose to not purify themselves, not to pursue consecration, then they would be disfellowshipped.
• reiteration of the cleansing process
We we do not abide in obedience, our relationship struggles, we will feel distant, even be disconnected from the assembly of God’s people.
“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:3-5 NKJV
““If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” John 14:15-17 NKJV
“If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?” I John 4:20 NKJV
Prayer: pray the passage and how the Holy Spirit has convicted you back to the Lord. Ask Him to do in You what His Word teaches.
