8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called 'The way of holiness.' The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for the redeemed.2 The wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err in it and go astray. [And in no way shall there enter into it [heaven] anything that is defiled...Rev 21:27. From the Word of the Lord within: "Only those who want to be clean can hear. Ears must hear."]
1 "Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city. For from this time forward the uncircumcised and the unclean shall no more come into you.
9 Thus says the Lord GOD: No stranger who is among the children of Israel, uncircumcised in heart and in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary.
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
|Hebrews 7:26 |
26 For it was appropriate for us to have such a high priest [Jesus], who is holy, innocent, undefiled, separate from sinners2, and made higher than the heavens. [From the Word of the Lord within: "See myself — thus no sin has a place in me." If Jesus joined in union with one still sinning and defiled, everyone in His body, including Jesus Himself, would be defiled. Sin has to go before you can partake of the divine nature.]
