White as snow

White-as-snow

How are your sins like scarlet?

“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.”  Isaiah 1:18

The Hebrew words for crimson and scarlet come from the same Hebrew root word tôlā meaning worm. This word refers to the kermes insect whose eggs provided a brilliant red pigment known for its permanency.

So, what we read in Isaiah 1:18 is:  Though your sins have left a stain as permanent as the dye made from the kermes’ eggs, I will remove every trace of the stain of your sin.

The Lord chose to lay our sin on Messiah Jesus, so we are forgiven with no trace of a stain, white as snow!

“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

Praising Him with you,
Beth Ann
