When the ether in our bodies is white, the Lord God Almighty knows that we are ready for eternity. He also knows that we are ready to assume our position in his kingdom. Everyone who is in the kingdom of God and who is aware of their mission and purpose should know that they cannot serve God unless they are cleansed.
Being cleansed means using the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit to purify your body and soul. It is not enough merely to accept the indwelling Holy Spirit, you must manifest his power in your life. You must demonstrate to the world that your God is a God of perfection. The Holy Spirit indwells us for the purpose of cleansing and perfecting us. He is our kinsman redeemer. He is our God.
