In Matthew 5:44 Jesus tells us to love our enemies and do good to those who despitefully use us. In 1 Thessalonians 3:12 Paul prayed that the Lord will increase and abound our love for each other and establish or make our hearts blameless in holiness before God, our Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. God not only wants our hearts, but all of us as Romans 12:1-2 says; to be holy and acceptable unto God. From our head to our toes we need to be pure.
When Jesus returns, He will be looking for us to be spotless as Ephesians 5:27 says, “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.” Remember we are the Church not the building. That’s why Ephesians 5:15-17 tells us to walk circumspectly not as fools, but as wise redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore be not unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” And His will is what Romans 12:1-2 tells us, and that is to stay holy.
Contrary to popular belief, to remain pure and holy you have to love God above self and the things of this world to want to obey His word and His will above everything else, which will generate the right relationship with Him so that you can hear from Him. You have to be a Proverbs 3:5-6 person who trusts and acknowledges God and does not lean on their own understanding or interpretation.
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 tells us that God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore we must sanctify ourselves and abstain from sexual immorality. If you lead any of God’s children astray, watch out God is going to deal with you.
I like the saying of Annie Johnson Flint: “His love has no limit, His grace has no measure, His power no boundary known unto men; for out of His infinite riches in Jesus He giveth, and giveth and giveth again.”
The Holy Spirit helps many to stay pure if we allow Him to guide us and if we heed His instruction. Upon confessing Jesus is Lord and believing in your heart that God raised Him from the dead He will direct you. Visit the salvation page above to view and example of the salvation prayer.
All glory, honor, praise and thanks go to God for using me to deliver this message. I pray that He will give all who read this message the spiritual gifts necessary to comprehend and act upon His word. I exercise my power and authority in the name of Jesus to bind every tactic of the enemy that will try to stop, hinder, or prevent this word from reaching its intended people. I ask the Lord to loose the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly angels to secure this word so that it reaches its intended people, according to Matthew 16:19 and Luke 10:19 in the omnipotent name of Jesus, Amen.
