OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JULY 12, 2022 (WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE)
TOPIC : “ WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE”
MEMORISE: Psalm 24:4
“He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”
READ: Psalm 24:3-6, Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
3 Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not trust in an idol
or swear by a false god.
5 They will receive blessing from the Lord
and vindication from God their Savior.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek your face, God of Jacob.
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Purity can be simply defined as being in one form with nothing else mixed in.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. – (Revelation 3:16)
God is not interested in two-timers. With God, you are either hot or cold; there is no staying in-between. Many people think it is okay to live holy and then just commit sin once in a while. God says He will spew you out of His mouth if you are lukewarm. He said He is coming back for a Church that has no spots at all, according to Ephesians 5:27 which 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.
Therefore, if you think that you can accommodate a little impurity in your heart, please think again. My Daddy wants you to be spotlessly clean, completely pure. Those who will be His bride must have no stain on their garment at all. That means every impure thought must be banished out of your mind. Your mind should only be filled with things that are pure, not things that can stain your garment of holiness. It is only those whose hearts are pure that will see God on the last day. Matthew 5:8 says:
Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.
When it comes to spiritual matters, if you are for God, be totally sold out to Him and if you are for the devil, be totally sold out to the devil. The Lord said in Isaiah 1:18:
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
In the spirit, you are either pure white or pure red. There is no sitting on the fence. Whichever one you wish to be is your choice, however He advises that you live holy and be white.
Only think pure thoughts.
