The Call for Clean Hands and a Pure Heart

Washing hands
Corona Virus has demanded us to pay close attention to washing our hands as well as disinfecting and sanitizing our house and environment.

It is by no accident, coincidence or mistake that Corona Virus has swept through the world. When I look at the extreme details of this virus and what the Lord has revealed to me in scriptures over the past decade, I realize how this virus has demanded us to pay close attention to washing our hands as well as disinfecting and sanitizing our house and environment.

In the past few days, I’ve reflected on the spiritual nature of God, the alignment of His word, and His desire for us to live a clean and pure life. The Lord has forewarned us but the people have not listened.

They have continued to ignore the ways of God. They have desired to walk in their own ways and create their own laws. They are wise in their own eyes yet they do not see, they do not hear and they do not understand. They walk as blind men in their ignorance towards the spiritual nature of the Lord.

They worship me for entertainment. They raise their hands in churches and congregations but their hearts are not pure. They are quick to quote scriptures but it is not embedded in their heart. Do they think they can earn their way to heaven through works of pleasing men?

In the world, they strive to be acknowledged, recognized and admired by their peers. Oh, they love an audience and love to follow but do not lead with integrity. They walk without faith, discernment or wisdom. Their lifestyles are a reflection of unrighteousness, rebellion and unholiness. They are made of a haughty and proud spirit. Their ways are foolishness.

The Lord has sent warnings. He has pleaded for them to let go of their idols. They increase in the pleasures of greed and lust, arrogance, gossip, backbiting, jealousy, abuse, and vanity.

Oh, what a stiff-necked nation! It’s a nation made of stone who turns their face against the Messiah in disobedience. A sinful nation who loves to oppress the poor, widow, and fatherless. A nation that celebrates injustice and continues to spread evil and hatred like a virus.

Do they think there is no price or cost for their ways? Do they think they can continue being a god of the earth without penalty? Consider your ways.

The judgement is upon the land. Who will stand in the heat of destruction? Where is your power now? Where are the mockers, scorners and the children of disobedience?

The storm has come. Who among you has clean hands and a pure heart? It’s time to turn away from your wickedness and deceitfulness. It’s time to turn away from your lies and your carnal, worldly mindsets.

Do you not understand that I see your heart? I hear your thoughts. For out of the heart the abundance speaks. [Matt 10:7-42]

I am not your Santa Claus. I am not your genie in a bottle. I am not a fairy tale or myth. I am not your law of attraction, neither am I your crystals, horoscopes, fortune, tarot cards, chakras and good luck.

I am God, the maker of heaven and earth, the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. The creator of all things.

Depart from your divination, witchcraft and Jezebel worship. Depart from your false religions, cults and practices.

I am a loving God who chastens and corrects. Why do you resist me? Why do you ignore me? Why do you not honor my name?

The time has come. The hour has arrived. Choose you this day who you will serve? [Joshua 24:15]

Wash your hands of sin and disobedience. Purge your heart of wickedness and evil. Wake up, the slothful in spirit. Are you hot or cold for my truth?

Clean your hands. Purge your hearts for your redemption knocks at the door.

Matters of the Heart

Several churches have become motivational powerhouses, however, they’re missing the mark on the message of Salvation.  The church, the body of Christ, has become a form of entertainment. Reality TV shows, superstar singing, shouting, dancing, and dramatic prophesying have all been incorporated into worship which makes it hard to tell what is real from what is not real.

Some people are attending church every Sunday but their hearts are not being truly transformed. Others are calling themselves Christians without having Godly character, a Godly lifestyle, or a personal relationship with Jesus.

Being a Christian today is like wearing a “title” on your chest like Superman or like wearing a badge or bumper sticker that shouts, “I’m a Christian!” But, what does that mean if you’re sleeping with your best friend’s husband, using the church to network for business or chasing women in the church?

The world on the outside looking in is even more confused because they have don’t have an understanding of the spiritual world much more how to discern the Spirit of God.

They’re looking at the church to be an example of what it means to be a Christian. Often times, no one can tell the difference because believers are conforming to the secular world at rapid speed.

Some preachers are preaching hate instead of love. Others are confirming same-sex marriage. Others are passive with heterosexual partners living together. The statistics in the divorce rates within the church is outrageous. There is just so much confusion about what religion, faith, and spirituality really mean.

The reverence for God is quickly diminishing. Morals and values are in the toilet. However, there is a remnant of believers that are thirsty for righteousness and the presence of the Holy Spirit.

As Christians, we are not to live like the world lives, but we are to set the example and live clean and sanctified lives.

The only way to do this is to be transformed by the Holy Spirit. Yes, we can change some things in our lives and make better choices and decisions but to be truly transformed, it takes the power of the Holy Spirit.

No one will ever be perfect, including me, but that’s why Jesus died for our sins. When we repent, we are acknowledging and declaring our weaknesses and faults and wrongdoings to the Lord. We do not have to have to carry guilt, shame, or condemnation in our hearts, but we are releasing everything attached to sin to God. He carries our burdens, troubles, and worries.

Even though we release all our problems to the Lord, it doesn’t mean it magically gets easier. Actually not to sugar coat anything, all hell breaks loose in our lives. You will still have to walk through tests, trials, and uncomfortable situations. However, the Lord will reveal his love, mercy, grace, power, healing, and faithfulness.

When we acknowledge Christ as our Lord and Savior. We confess and understand that Christ died for our sins and that Christ is the Son of God which was created in the image of man.

We ask the Lord to come into our hearts and transform us. It’s much more than just mouth service. You must have a deep yearning, desire, and surrender to God to change your heart. That’s where the transformation takes place – in the heart.

Your heart is where your desire and passion reside. “Out of the heart, the abundance speaks.” Luke 6:45 The core of a man is his heart. Sometimes decisions are made from the heart. The heart carries emotions and feelings. However, the mind is equally powerful and can override the heart. The mind carries logic, memory, intelligence, and consciousness.

If your heart is clean, you will have a desire to please God. It all stems from the issues of the heart. However, the mind is not an island. It also needs to be transformed. Our mind controls our thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and behavior.

When we align our thoughts with God’s thoughts, all doubt, fear, discouragement, and negative thinking has to go! The Lord will give us the ability to discern situations and people, guard our minds, provide focus and clarity, and help us make wise decisions. We will also have a teachable spirit.

When we surrender our thoughts to the Lord, He gives us the authority to overcome attacks from the enemy in our minds that plagues us with worldly concerns. We know the difference between right and wrong and have accountability for our actions while maintaining grace under pressure.

We are not to judge others at all, but we are to live by God’s laws.

There are many questions to ponder on in your spiritual journey.  Have you surrendered your life to Christ? Have you backslidden? Do you have integrity? Do you forgive others without holding grudges? Do you gossip? Do you complain? Have you changed your language to represent the love of Christ? Are you jealous? Are you kind to others?

It’s time to step up and lead by example. Walk like Jesus. Even if you stumble or fall, He will catch you and will not let you go. Take the first step. It’s not an easy walk, but He promises it will be worth it.
