Many Christians today want a blood
covering for sin but not a
cleansing! The ritual of the Old Testament
Tabernacle provides a
clear example of the kind of walk with God Christians
should have.

The Tabernacle had an outer court where the sacrificial
was slain. This provided the blood covering for sin. But outside,
was a laver where cleansing took place. No priest could
enter the Holy of
Holies and commune with God face to face
without being cleansed.

Christians believe they can bypass the laver which, for us,
stands for the
washing by the water of the Word. They believe
they can push into the holy
place with sin caked all over them
and sinful habits deeply imbedded in their

which I have spoken unto you”
(John 15:3).

We hear preaching that says, “You
don’t need to be searched.
All your sin is under the blood! All this digging

out of sin brings only condemnation and guilt.”

In Revelation
2:23, Jesus says, “All the churches shall know
that I am he which searcheth the
