Malachi 3:2; Mark 9:23   Thought/Prayer:  The Fuller’s Soap.  Topics:  2 at end.

“But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: . . .” (AKJV) 

“And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter, and James, and John, and leads them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.”  (AKJV)  (Read these scriptures and more at

A fuller works with wool from a sheep to clean it and whiten it for use in making wool cloth.  It’s a cleansing process.  Wool right off of a sheep has oils and dirt in it . . . that sheep has lived outdoors! It’s been out in the rain and has picked up dirt from the ground.  The fuller gets all of this non-wool stuff out of the wool, and then it’s ready to be made into yarn, or cloth for a coat or a blanket.

And the Lord Jesus Christ is purer than any result from even the most skilled fuller (some might say a bleacher).  Christ is pure in His power, and we will see this when He comes again.  Yes, no man can stand before Him, except that via the salvation that Christ offers us, we may stand before God, in Christ.  This is the only way we could ever stand before His purity . . . to have been redeemed by Him in all His purity and to claim His cleansing righteousness as our worthiness to stand.

Processes have been in place for many centuries, to deal with the wool shorn from a sheep’s wooly growth.  They always include soap.  Soap and water are still marvelous in getting out dirt and oil – from a myriad of things – even the germs on our hands, and including sheep’s wool, of course.  The wool is processed for cleanliness.  Soap (or the equivalent over past times) is in the mix.  And no one gets it any cleaner than Jesus.

When our lives feel like a heavy coat of wool, uncleansed, heavy with oil and debris, needing a good cleaning:  help us, Lord, to remember that you are the great fuller who can cleanse us to be able to stand before God in Your righteousness.  And may we be able to explain this to others who are so fraught with problems that they feel unworthy, stained, soiled.  Help us to introduce them to You, Lord, who can cleanse like no other – You, Lord, of shining apparel whiter than snow.

Topics:  Pray for wisdom to explain the beauty and purity of Jesus Christ to those who need Him in LIFE situations.
