"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;” (Is 1:18) White is clean, pure.

Her prophets whitewash these deeds for them by false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says’—when the Lord has not spoken. (Ez 22:28)  Whitewash. Uncool.  

As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. (Dan 7:9) God the Father. White is holy, pure. Cool.

There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. (Matt 17:2) Jesus the Son. Holy and pure. Cool.

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.” (Matt 23:27) Whitewash again. Uncool, again.

[Mary Magdalene] saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. (John 20:12)  Heavenly beings, Angels, in white. Cool.

Someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. (Rev 11:13,14) Jesus in heaven has white hair like the Father. Super cool.

Twenty-four elders…dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. (Rev 4:4) These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Rev 7:14) Human beings in white, holy and pure also. Humbling. Very cool.

Whitewashed, white from the outside, masks sin, temporarily. Un. Cool.

White from the inside, a pure heart saved by Grace, is the ultimate Cool.
