I. EXORDIUM:

Are you blemished?

[No] for God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame.

Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.

Yes, I'm blemished with weakness and infirmities to give GOD glory.

2 Corinthians 12:9 (Amplified Bible)

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!

No, I have made spotless by the blood of the LAMB.

Isaiah 1:18 (Amplified Bible)

Leviticus 21:21 (King James Version)

No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

We are referring or talking to the one's already inside the priesthood because if you come and approach GOD having all these blemishes GOD will cleanse you if you will come with all your heart. He is the LORD who cleanses us. He is our JEHOVAH QUADASH. If you come with all your heart to GOD, He will cleanse you.

Leviticus 21:8 (Amplified Bible)

You shall consecrate him therefore, for he offers the bread of your God; he shall be holy to you, for I the Lord Who sanctifies you am holy.

A. A priest that has a blemish can't come near to offer

"No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire:"

Blemish or "mum mum" meaning stain, physical or moral blemish. Stain or blemish pertains to sin and those living in sin.

Remember the LORD have already delivered us from every blemish there is, or any wickedness and sin and all sin's effects: death, sickness/diseases, law, law's curse/death, etc.

Jude 1:23-24 (Amplified Bible)

[Strive to] save others, snatching [them] out of [the] fire; on others take pity [but] with fear, loathing even the garment spotted by the flesh and polluted by their sensuality.

Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]—
