Rev 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and who washed us from our sins in His own blood,
The Greek word “washed us” is to be loosed, unbridled or unharnessed.
Just as the horse is unbridled and unharnessed, the Christian has been unbridled and unharnessed from sin, pain and sickness.
For many, though we have been loosed, unharnessed, and unbridled, and Jesus has slapped us in the butt so that we scamper out of the stable of pain and infirmity, we remain in that tiny place, eating the grass of despair and pain.
