Draw Near

“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies having been washed with pure water.”  Hebrews 10:22

Our bodies will be washed with pure water.(Eph 5:26)  The Word of God will wash our physical being (Soul) as well as our spiritual being.  The Lord wants the totality of our being.  If we think too much along the lines of the natural (carnal mind), we get an idea that we are not very spiritual.  II Corinthians 4:7 tells us, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.”  Then we are told, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering for He is faithful who promised” (Hebrews 10:23).

We are to begin making a confession of hope, of that which He is beginning to do.  As we begin to see the dawning of the new day that is before us, and have a hope that rises up within us, we are to cling to this hope. It is this hope (Christ in us) that will anchor our soul as The Lord prepares us for His Kingdom. This is the testimony of the overcomer.
