The Scripture sense of one clean deserves our particular notice. Solomon demands, (Proverbs 20:9) "Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?" None among the sons of Adam can lay claim to this cleanness, much less, that any have made themselves so. But the apostle John, commissioned by God the Holy Ghost, tells the church in a sweetness and fulness of expression indescribably blessed, that the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin. (1 John 1:7) Here is the laver, the fountain, for sin and for all uncleanness, which JEHOVAH hath opened. (Zechariah 13:1) And hence, the Scripture sense of cleanness, is the sinner freed from the filth of sin, and the guilt of sin, and the dominion of sin, by the blood of Christ, and the sanctifying influences of the Holy Ghost. (Ezekiel 36:25; John 13:10)
