“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD:though your sins are like scarlet,they shall be as white as snow;though they are red like crimson,they shall become like wool."
It is utterly ridiculous that God would suggest that a meeting of minds between us and Him would reasonably produce our salvation.
God's logic is this: look to Me and be saved.
The meeting will NOT involve God pretending we aren't sinners.
He will not tolerate our sins as mere blunders on an otherwise unblemished resume.
They are blood red.
And He will shed red blood to make them white as snow.
They are permanent blemishes that ruin us like worn out fabric.
He will make us new material altogether.
