  • Bathing = Salvation ( Receiving EVERLASTING Righteous )
  • Washing Feet = Cleaning from Day-to-day Dirt

Being Clean

Ephesians 5:26
New King James Version (NKJV)

26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,

John 15:3
New King James Version (NKJV)

Girdle of Righteousness

John 13:1-17
New King James Version (NKJV)

13 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.

And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to Him, “Lord, are You washing my feet?”

Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.”

Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!”

Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”

Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!”

10 Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.” 11 For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, “You are not all clean.”

12 So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.16 Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.

Isaiah 11:5
King James Version (KJV)

And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Revelation 1:13
New King James Version (NKJV)

13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.

With Me

  • Not flowing With me ( With Jesus )
    • Either you are too forward or too backward ( Flesh )
  • This verse is not talking about Salvation ( If its salvation, it should say IN ME )

Don’t trust your Flesh

Flesh is either forward or backward

  • Peter first don’t want to wash his feet
  • Then Peter wants to wash His Feet, Hands

Flesh is Too courageous or Too coward

  • Peter first said, I shall follow you to death
  • Jesus told , you shall betray me 3 times before the cock crows

Confession of Jesus as Lord is more powerful

The Ritual for Cleansing Healed Lepers

Leviticus 14:1-9
New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “This shall be the law of the leper for the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the priest. And the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall examine him; and indeed, if the leprosy is healed in the leper, then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two living and clean birds, cedar wood, scarlet, and hyssop. And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water. As for the living bird, he shall take it, the cedar wood and the scarlet and the hyssop, and dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water. And he shall sprinkle it seven times on him who is to be cleansed from the leprosy, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose in the open field. He who is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean. After that he shall come into the camp, and shall stay outside his tent seven days. But on the seventh day he shall shave all the hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows—all his hair he shall shave off. He shall wash his clothes and wash his body in water, and he shall be clean.

  • Two Birds : Represents Jesus
  • One Bird Killed over running water : Holy Spirit bringing out the death of Christ
    • Running water : Holy Spirit

Laws of Purification

Numbers 19:1-10
New King James Version (NKJV)

19 Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying: ‘Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring you a red heifer without blemish, in which there is no defect and on which a yoke has never come. You shall give it to Eleazar the priest, that he may take it outside the camp, and it shall be slaughtered before him; and Eleazar the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger, and sprinkle some of its blood seven times directly in front of the tabernacle of meeting. Then the heifer shall be burned in his sight: its hide, its flesh, its blood, and its offal shall be burned. And the priest shall take cedar wood and hyssop and scarlet, and cast them into the midst of the fire burning the heifer.Then the priest shall wash his clothes, he shall bathe in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp; the priest shall be unclean until evening. And the one who burns it shall wash his clothes in water, bathe in water, and shall be unclean until evening. Then a man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and store them outside the camp in a clean place; and they shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for the water of purification; it is for purifying from sin. 10 And the one who gathers the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until evening. It shall be a statute forever to the children of Israel and to the stranger who dwells among them.

  • “I will send Eleazar (Helper) to you” – Jesus
  • Eleazar means Holy Spirit
  • Holy Spirit was the one who brought Jesus outside the camp
  • Jesus was slaughtered before ( in-front of )Holy Spirit
  • cedar wood and hyssop and scarlet : representing smallest to the greatest of Nature : Its all in the finished work of Christ
  • The blood was sprinkled before the temple ( Jewish tradition says it was before the temple Mount of Olives )
  • Sprinkled 7 times : which means perfect reconciliation ( perfect redemption )

Numbers 19:16-18
New King James Version (NKJV)

16 Whoever in the open field touches one who is slain by a sword or who has died, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean seven days.

17 ‘And for an unclean person they shall take some of the ashes of the heifer burnt for purification from sin, and running water shall be put on them in a vessel. 18 A clean person shall take hyssop and dip it in the water, sprinkle it on the tent, on all the vessels, on the persons who were there, or on the one who touched a bone, the slain, the dead, or a grave.

  • Running water : Holy Spirit
  • If anyone touches anything dead, they have to clean themselves with the sprinkling of ashes mixed running water.

Sprinkling on 

  • tent : family
  • vessels
  • persons who were there

  • Ashes means Judgement is passed
  • Fire dies when there is nothing more to burn
  • Ashes reminds you of, it has been finished
  • It has been Judged
  • Finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ

Ashes put aside

  • Anything dead : could include ,
    • messages which says our sins are not yet forgive
    • any negative thoughts
  • Devil doesn’t consider things which are dead
  • But Devil considers things which are wounded and alive

Jesus was crucified outside the camp
