“When cleansing is mentioned in the Bible in connection with the blood, it is always cleansing from guilt.  Cleansing from the power of sin and the presence of sin is by the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, and the living, in-dwelling Christ.  Christ on the cross saves from the guilt of sin; Christ on the throne saves from the power of sin; and Christ coming again will save from the presence of sin.”

R. A. Torrey, Power-Filled Living: How to Receive God’s Best for Your Life.  New Kensington, PA: Whitaker House, 1998, page 29.
