Zechariah 3:1-5

28 12 2010

3:1) Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him.

3:2) And the LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?”

3:3) Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel.

3:4) Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Take away the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes.”

3:5) And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head, and they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the LORD stood by.


God has said many times that we wear our sins before him… what we do in our so-called private lives are like doing it in broad daylight before him.  And yet through all the evil and perverse things we do in his presence he still forgives us.  He gives us new chances every time we mess up and for me that has been many, many times.  But don’t act however you want and then just snap your fingers at him for forgiveness… It doesn’t work like that here with friends, family, or colleagues and it certainly won’t work for the supreme being.  When you ask for forgiveness you must truly be repentant in your heart… so pray not just for forgiveness, but a mind change; towards what He would want.
