God did not strongly criticize the use of teraphim back there. To us, the practice seems abominable, but we are viewing matters from an enlightened standpoint. Today a Christian who does this should be excommunicated, but for those who lived back there, we must view matters as presented in Genesis and then on down through the years. The Apostle Paul said that once the commandment was given, it brought enlightenment and sin if not obeyed, but before the Law, it was different.

Verse 7 means the prospective Bride is without blame on this side of the veil. A “spot” is a particular fault, a flaw. We must wash our robes on a daily basis, asking each day for forgiveness. Those who do not apply for mercy and forgiveness each day develop both wrinkles in their garments (through inactivity and a sleeping condition) and spots. The Great Company have long-term spots that need to be washed. Ephesians 5:26,27 describes the Little Flock: “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.”
