WORDKEEPING & MORAL PURITY

 

 

Wordkeeping is a powerful moral cleansing agent. Remember, God has placed His power within the Word itself. If God declares it, it exists. Whatever God commands us to do, He empowers us to do.

 

The promise, ďBlessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see GodĒ is a promise we can personally and individually claim. As we meditate upon these Words, they soak down deep into our hearts, and purge out all impurity.

 

How do you chase out the bad thoughts? If we struggle with lustful, impure habits, we must saturate our minds with Godís promises of purity. That is where the power is, not in independent efforts to be moral. Moral power is supernatural, and a carnal person cannot be pure from the inside out. They may look and act pure on the outside, but their thoughts cannot be controlled by their carnal mind.

 

In our society, morality is extremely rare. Thatís because Wordkeeping is extremely rare. Wordkeeping is the only way to become pure. Cling to Godís promises as if your life depended on them! Consider them of higher value than anything you possess. If you long for a pure heart, and plead with God while claiming His promises, you will have a pure heart! And someday, you will see God! Dwell on that and sense the sheer delight of your glorious future!

 

The advertisements, the entertainment, the music, the attire, the language, gestures are all designed by the enemy to direct our minds into impure channels. We must guard our eyes and ears from the input of the world, which is full of sensuality. The freedom that Godís indwelling Holy Spirit brings to us breaks the bonds of lustful habits. To have a clean conscience, and to be able to stand up under the scrutiny of the probing light that discloses any darkness is of inestimable value. If you can get your mind around the preciousness of that, you wonít want to do anything to jeopardize your purity. It will be easy to say NO to societyís smut.

 

Being pure in heart expands to many aspects of our lives. Pure women dress modestly. Pure men make wise choices about what they behold. Purity directs our eyes to the pure and lovely, and keeps them away from impure suggestions and content. The mind must be fed with pure food if the heart is to be kept pure.

 

Let me put it bluntly. How can a man or woman who honestly plans to see God someday choose to indulge in entertainment that encourages impurity? If the actors in a movie are portraying immoral behavior, will this not counteract the power of the Word to purify the viewer? So, can that viewer genuinely and sincerely Wordkeep, (remember the definition of Wordkeeping) and then intentionally sabotage their Wordkeeping? What do you think? How can we pervert our moral taste buds and then wonder why the Word is tasteless?

 

Would you argue with these statements: Worldly entertainment, filled with immorality, disqualifies the mind for pure thinking. It dampens our desire for spiritual nourishment. It makes a mockery of Wordkeeping.

 

Yet, worldly entertainment is an acceptable practice for most who call themselves Christians. This being the case, is it any wonder that our churches are lukewarm and in need of an awakening?

 

Are we aware of our invisible companions at all times? Holy angels delight in surrounding those whose heart is feasting on the Word. Evil angels delight in surrounding those who are feasting on the world.Let your Wordkeeping form a weapon to keep the evil angels away from you. Donít neglect Wordkeeping on any account, especially not to spend time pumping immoral garbage into your mind.

 

Watch and pray always, beware of Satanís snares and keep the application of the Word activated at all times. Keep the precious pearls of promises close, so that your moral purity will gleam with the glory of God!
