”And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.”Zechariah 3:4.
Thousands of Years ago, God pardon Isrealites sins on so many occasions, same way he pardoned Adams and many generations before ours, looking up to them then to change for real, as it is in this generation today, “to get His full favour for real/divine/pure grace (to sin no more)”, by subjecting theirs/our flesh unto God’s own Spirit in His service which guaranteed Heavenly Hope with influencing direct/indirect benefit to Humanity not excluding oneself.
The difference between common Isrealites or Adam and Joshua/Caleb among other true Godly persons, is that the first, though received pardon from God, but do not “Change for good for real nor fully concerned about God, except for their immediate need” , but the latter obtained full pardon chiefly characterized by “Positive Change and Godly patriotism which actually prompted God to go extra mile to meet their need either on request or not”.
Well, we all knew that at a point, Joshua personally declared and dedicated Himself, not leaving his family out, but all to God; same man voice was honoured to stabilize the moon and sun in his Country favour. He was also at an acceptable time, as in our quote for Today, cleansed from spiritual uncleanness to cleanness and adornment”. Space would not permit me to talk about Caleb (Read God comment about him: “But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it”). This is incredible! Today, take a moment to thank Jesus for justifying you. I pray that God gives you a revelation of all that this entails and that your life will reflect the fullness as well as beauty of His pardon, in Jesus Name! Shalom
