God’s Word has given us great and precious promises which belong to every believer. We need to study and comprehend all of the priceless treasures that we have been given.
“On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity.” (Zech 13:1 NIV)
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. (Ps 51:7 NKJV)
And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor 6:11 NKJV)
Jesus suffered at the hands of His enemies; shed His blood on Calvary; died a shame-filled death; and was resurrected on the third day and ascended into Heaven. By fulfilling His calling on this earth, He not only purchased salvation for every person who accepts Him as their Savior and Lord. He also is our source for continuous cleansing, washing, and sanctification.

Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. (Rom 3:28)
