YOU ARE WHITE-WASHED SEPULCHERS
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thence forth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matt. 5 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
“I have called you to be salt in this world. But your salt has lost its flavor. The salt that once was pure has now become watered down. You are called to be a city on a hill, but your light has dimmed. Why would you be set so that the world would seemingly see you but then when they do, they only see more of the world?
You are called to be separate. You are called to be set apart. For many of your clothes have now become soiled. For I have come for a bride, and yet I see that she is not prepared for Me. And yet some of you would clean the outside of the cup thinking that you have done enough. You are white-washed sepulchers.
For the inside is dirty and vile. But I can make you clean, says the Lord. I can make you as white as the new fallen snow. ”
