The Holy Communion is a miracle meal, a meal of substitution – Pastor AdeboyeOPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL

DATE: TUESDAY JULY 12TH 2022

THEME: WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE PURE

MEMORISE:
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. Psalms 24:4

READ:
Psalms 24:3-6
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

MESSAGE:
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.

KEY POINT:
Only think pure thought.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 110-112

HYMN 14: NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

1. Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me.
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

2. Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

3. There let the way appear,
Steps unto heav’n;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy giv’n;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

4. Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

5. Or if, on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upward I fly,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee
