 3 Now you are to be clean through the word that I have spoken to you.1 [Those words you hear the Lord speak to you are Spirit and life-giving; those spoken words you hear are engrafted into your heart, cleansing you a little more. From the Word of the Lord within: "Like the Apostles, you too must be cleansed. Only those who want to be clean can hear. I am only reached by those with a penitent heart. The Spirit gives life with every word heard. Hear and live."]

Ephesians 5:26

 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it [the church of believers] with the washing of water by the word,3 [This is one of the critical verses to be understood. The Greek for word in this verse is rhmati <4487>, which in English means: 1) that which is or has been uttered by the living voice, thing spoken, word; 1a) any sound produced by the voice and having definite meaning; 1b) speech, discourse; 1b1) what one has said. Hearing someone read words from the Bible does not result in any cleansing or sanctifying whatsoever; but the words that Christ speaks to you do result in your cleansing. Now you are to be clean through the word which I have spoken to you, John 15:3; and Peter said to him, "You shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with me." John 13:8.]

1 John 5:8

 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; these three agree as one.3 [The three witnesses are : First, the spirit that bears witness in the earth, which mortifies them, which circumcises them, which leads them into all truth; Secondly, They come to know the water which is a witness in the earth; by which they are washed, their minds, their souls, their spirits, and in their bodies, with this pure water. The third witness is his blood, with which the hearts of people are sprinkled, and their consciences are sprinkled with the blood of Jesus, by which blood they are sanctified, they are cleansed from all their dead works, to serve the living God. (Dead works are decided to be done by the carnal mind and will of man. Works of obedient faith to God's orders are not dead works.) ]
