We are to sanctify ourselves before we can cross the river Jordan otherwise known as the time of trouble. The work our high priest is chronicled in reference to our preparation. We are to prepare not only to cross the river but so we can be introduced into the society of heaven.
Zechariah 3:1 And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. 2 And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: [is] not this a brand plucked out of the fire? 3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. 4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. 5 And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD stood by. 6 And the angel of the LORD protested unto Joshua, saying, 7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.
In this vision is portrayed to us the preparation that is needed and it is depicted in the picture of the high priest who is standing before his people and he himself is the representation of what the people are like. They are in need of having their character changed, their garments changed, their guilt to be taken away from them. I have caused their iniquity to be taken away. God causes things to happen.
