Only The Blood of JESUS GOD'S SON Cleanses us from all sin

Proverbs 20:1-30

1Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler;
whoever is led astray by them is not wise.

2A KING'S Wrath strikes terror like the roar of a lion;
those who anger HIM forfeit their lives.

3It is to one’s honor to avoid strife,
but every fool is quick to quarrel.
4Sluggards do not plow in season;
so at harvest time they look but find nothing.
5The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters,
but one who has insight draws them out.
6Many claim to have unfailing love,
but a faithful person who can find?
7The righteous lead blameless lives;
blessed are their children after them.

8 When A King Sits On HIS Throne To Judge,

HE Winnows out all evil with HIS Eyes.

9 Who can say, “I have kept my heart pure;
I am clean and without sin”?

10Differing weights and differing measures—
The LORD Detests them both.
11Even small children are known by their actions,
so is their conduct really pure and upright?

12Ears that hear and eyes that see—
The LORD Has Made them both.
13Do not love sleep or you will grow poor;
stay awake and you will have food to spare.
14“It’s no good, it’s no good!” says the buyer—
then goes off and boasts about the purchase.
15Gold there is, and rubies in abundance,
but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel.

16Take the garment of one who puts up security for a stranger;
hold it in pledge if it is done for an outsider.
17Food gained by fraud tastes sweet,
but one ends up with a mouth full of gravel.
18Plans are established by seeking advice;
so if you wage war, obtain guidance.
19A gossip betrays a confidence;
so avoid anyone who talks too much.

20If someone curses their father or mother,
their lamp will be snuffed out in pitch darkness.

21An inheritance claimed too soon
will not be blessed at the end.

22 Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!”
Wait for The LORD, and HE Will Avenge you.

23The LORD Detests differing weights,
and dishonest scales do not please Him.
24A person’s steps are directed by The Lord.
How then can anyone understand their own way?

25It is a trap to dedicate something rashly
and only later to consider one’s vows.
26A wise king winnows out the wicked;
he drives the threshing wheel over them.

27 The human spirit is the Lamp of The LORD

that sheds light on one’s inmost being.

28Love and faithfulness keep a king safe;
through love his throne is made secure.
29The glory of young men is their strength,
gray hair the splendor of the old.

30 Blows and wounds scrub away evil,
and beatings purge the inmost being.

Verse 8, 9

When a KING Sits On HIS Throne to judge,
HE Winnows out all evil with HIS Eyes.
Who can say, “I have kept my heart pure;
I am clean and without sin”?

The KING Will Easily and quickly Discern who is evil, or who is in a bad cause before him, and Will Pass Sentence on him, and Drive him Away from HIM with shame and disgrace, and to receive deserved punishment; or HE Will terrify persons from coming before HIM with false witness against their neighbor, or with a wrong cause.

This may be applied to CHRIST, The KING of kings, and JUDGE of all; Whose Eyes Are As a flame  of fire; WHO Will Clearly See into all hearts and actions, when HE Shall Sit On HIS Throne of Judgment; and Shall Pass the righteous and definitive sentence, and Shall Drive the wicked into hell, into everlasting punishment.

The heart of them is naturally unclean, the mind, conscience, understanding, will, and affections; there is no part clean, all are defiled with sin; and though there is such a thing as a pure or clean heart, yet not as made so by men.  It Is GOD WHO Has Made the heart, that can only make it clean, or create a clean heart in men; it is not to be done by themselves, or by anything that they can do; it is done only by the Grace of GOD, and Blood of CHRIST: GOD Has Promised To Do it, and HE Does it; and to HIM, and for HIM only.

Am I pure from my sin? the sin of nature or of action. Such indeed who are washed from their sins in The Blood of CHRIST; whose sins are all pardoned for HIS Sake, and who are justified from all things by HIS Righteousness; they are pure from sin, none is to be seen in them, or found upon them in a legal sense: they are all without fault in the Sight of GOD; their iniquities are caused to pass from them; and they are clothed with fine linen, clean and white, the righteousness of the saints: but then none are pure from indwelling sin, nor from the commission of sin; no man can say this. If he does, he is an ignorant man who does not speak the truth, nor is the truth in him, 

“But if we walk in the Light As HE HIMSELF Is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and The Blood of JESUS HIS SON Cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, HE Is Faithful and Righteous To Forgive us our sins and to Cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
