1 Corinthians 6;19-20.**
2 Corinthians 7:1 "Having therefore this promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God"
In his craftiness, Satan has succeeded in turning many away from the whole truth of God that can save. To the ignorant, he presents raw satanic doctrines and to the knowledgeable half-truths that have the semblance of truth.
Unfortunately, children of God are sometimes not wise enough to see through his lie hence they fall as prey. A clean glass of water means: a pure drinking water contained in a glass cup that is washed clean in and out. That is exactly the way God wants His children to be. He wants us to be clean both in and out - undefiled in body, soul and spirit. That way, we would be vessels of honour made ready for holy use.
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23.
Some pastors preach that God only looks at the heart and not at our appearance. That is half-truth, concocted by Satan and imported from the pit of hell. It is contrary to Scripture, which says our body should be preserved HOLY.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1.
Living by this heresy has denied many devout and faithful Christians their place in heaven. They are pure in character but defiled in dressing through the use of hair extensions, make-ups, tattoos etc.
In some denominations where the truth about adornments is taught and practiced, Satan has succeeded in getting them to glory in their holy dressing while neglecting their inner purity thus exalting themselves in self-righteousness. Satan has blinded their eyes and darkened their hearts to the truth that holiness is an ABSOLUTE state of being.
Jesus likens such Christians to whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of bones of the dead and everything unclean.
Thought For The Day:
Sanctify your heart and neglect not your outward purity.
Song For The Day:
Make me holy (3) O Lord, In the morning in the night anytime You may come
Bible Reading For The Day: Joshua 16-18; Luke 5:1-16**
