THE JOB’S QUESTION: HOW CAN A MAN BE MADE CLEAN?
Job asked two questions. He said.
Job 15:14 What is man, that he should be CLEAN? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
Job 25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or HOW CAN HE BE CLEAN that is born of a woman?
But Jesus was born of a woman.
Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, MADE OF A WOMAN, made under the law,
4:5 TO REDEEM THEM THAT were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
The fullness of time was come even to answer that question. So we find out that Jesus gave answers to the question and He prayed it also.
John 15:3 NOW YE ARE CLEAN through the word which I have spoken unto you.
You must understand the word “Now”. Jesus said Now, you’re clean by my word, Now!
Romans 8:1 THERE IS THEREFORE NOW no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
It is now! Glory to God! Jesus has made the provision for man, answering Job questions. He said Now ye are clean.
Let’s see more. This was how it happened. Jesus prayed it to the Father.
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
He also reveals how He did it for us.
John 17:19 AND FOR THEIR SAKES I SANCTIFY MYSELF, THAT THEY ALSO MIGHT BE SANCTIFIED THROUGH THE TRUTH.
We again see how He did it.
Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are SANCTIFIED THROUGH THE OFFERING OF THE BODY OF JESUS CHRIST ONCE FOR ALL.
So you’re clean once and for all. Sanctified once and for all. So you see, that the answer to Job desire or prayer or questions.
Let’s see further.
Hebrews 10:14 For by ONE OFFERING he hath PERFECTED FOR EVER THEM THAT ARE SANCTIFIED.
Colossians 1:20 And, HAVING MADE PEACE THROUGH THE BLOOD OF HIS CROSS, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
You make peace through offering. Sacrifices are made through blood offering. He has made peace for us.
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, WE HAVE PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
God is faithful.
Hebrews 2:11 FOR BOTH HE THAT SANCTIFIETH AND THEY WHO ARE SANCTIFIED ARE ALL OF ONE: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that THEY also MAY BE ONE IN US: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
By that He has made us righteous and sanctified.
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
You see, Jesus sanctified us and He that sanctified us is one with us! We have come to His Holiness. Holy as He is, we are therefore sanctified to be like Him. If He is coming for a sanctified church, the church need to be sanctified too. So you’re clean!
