Cleansed and One

Acts 10:15   (KJV)   15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

We can absolutely trust in God because He is dependable; He doesn’t gravitate between two opposing opinions; He knows exactly what’s true and right; He knows exactly what to do. He doesn’t violate His Words; He always does what He says He will do. He doesn’t acts-10-15-cleansed-and-onebreak His promises; all His promises, in Jesus, are “yes” and “amen.” Our God is immutable; He never changes. What may seem as changes are part of His grand design.

God has absolute, irrevocable, and unchangeable commands; He also has dispensational dealings. Although there are myriad discussions regarding this issue, God’s different dealings with His people throughout history is obvious. There’s definitely a big difference between the age of innocence during the time of our very first parents—Adam and Eve, and our present dispensation of grace.

One of the “revealed-as-needed” truths in God’s plan is the oneness of the Jews and Gentiles. The wall of separation has been torn down through our Lord Jesus Christ. God has created ONE new “man.” All of us in Christ are cleansed, and all are one. Jew and Gentile, man and woman, young and old, rich and poor; democrats, independents, libertarians, green party, republicans, etc.; Americans, Europeans, Asians, etc.—all of us who have placed our full dependence on Jesus for our salvation and have bowed our hearts before Him in surrender—with all our differences—are forgiven, cleansed, accepted, and we belong to one spiritual family.
