Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God

Posted 06-22-10 at 04:55 AM by Song of Mercy
When a baby is born, they don't think about crying or peeing or turning their mouths for food. They simply do. Their motives are not tainted with manipulation. They do not hide truth, rather, they reveal it through the honesty of their communications. They are pure.

In Mt 5:8 Christ declared "Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God." In this context purity is akin to holy. In Eph 4:24 we read "put on the new man, the one created according to God's [likeness] in righteousness and purity of the truth." The phrase 'purity of truth' can also be translated 'holiness.'

God is the essence of truth, He is Truth; not metaphorically, literally, He is Truth. So many stumble on this point with God. The word of God says in Is 53:5 "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed." Yet, many Christians deny healing insinuating falsity in God's promise.

When we cry Holy is the Lord in worship, and then refuse to be healed by God we are in gross error and attribute to God the same falsity that we our selves are capable of. Num 23:19 says "God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a human being, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not make it happen?"

I think that before we can be pure in our hearts, we need to comprehend the purity of God. In this cruel and heartless world the king of darkness would have us believe that God is a liar. That his word is only partly true and that essentially we are on our own. Don't believe the father of lies. Grab a hold of God and let him impart His purity to you so that when this age ends you will qualify to join with Him in His Holy Temple.

Love,

Song

For my Fatherís will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:40
