Scripture: Revelation 14:4-5
Revelation 14:4-5 is the final place that am-o-mas is used in the New Testament. “These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.” Am-o-mas is said of every believer. In the book of Revelation the Lord uses am-o-mas concerning the 144,000 Jewish evangelists ministering during the tribulation period. We are just as am-o-mas before Him as they are. None of this group has ever been guilty of sexual sin. What is being highlighted here? God is emphasizing an important point for clarity of conscience! When you and I are born into the family of God and when, as believers, we ask to be again washed with His blood, all sexual sin is cleansed, blanked out, erased and gone! Yes, gone! Why cloud it with any future problems? That would be foolishness! Engaging in sexual sin leaves an impact that can affect us within and without. We cannot afford to do that. Sexual sin is a much greater travesty with God than our culture admits! The way we walk fearless in the last days is to accept the full umbrella of the application of am-o-mas in making us blameless. I certainly hope that by looking at every place it is used in the New Testament we are making that application to our own lives. We need to! The fruit of knowing we are blameless is serving God in fearlessness. A confident and fearless walk before God is His goal for us!
