Blood Washed?

Good Monday! Are you ready for some good old time country gospel music? Well, turn up those speakers, limber up your tapping toe and sing along! Take a listen here.

Need something a little mellower? Click here and/or here.

Maybe you feel like buying some blood washed clothing now. If so, click here.

Have you ever found yourself in difficulty when you tried to explain to someone why being "washed in the blood of the Lamb" (Rev. 7:14 ) should make one "whiter than snow" as that old gospel hymn puts it? Many complain that not only is the concept confusing, but that all the talk about blood is repugnant to the modern mind. Even for one who has been brought up "in the faith" a bit of reflection makes one admit that the shades of difference between propitiation and expiation or between redemption and ransom are rather vague in one's mind. In fact, most of these symbols of salvation, growing out of a different time in history seem rather distant or even irrelevant to us today. Want to find out more? Click here.

It was not a gospel song that attracted me, but the Father-God drew me and Providence led me to Is. 1:18 in THE BOOK "The Bible", which was fully unknown to me until that day!
My mind must not be modern because there was nothing confusing about Is. 1:18. - I wanted it badly and by HIS surprising GRACE Jesus washed me with His BLOOD and made me whiter than snow! I am eternally grateful!
Isaiah 1:18
"Come now, and let us reason together,"
Says the LORD,
"Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as WHITE AS SNOW;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool."
Isaiah 1:18
