THE PURE AND THE DEFILED
Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. Titus 1:15
Praise God, I welcome you into the house of depth where all doubt dissolve, where misery are canceled, where destruction and death give way. It’s been tough for some evangelists, missionary and some wise men (and women) to bring others into the truth or light. Most of their efforts results into argument and no one is blessed. For the wise to make more disciples and God’s ministers to bring many into the light, this edition of Voices from Zion is written titled; the pure and the defiled. Titus 1:15
THE PURE live in a fearless world, the world of possibility governed by God and his Angels even on the earth. The pure are those that have been imparted by God’s knowledge and grow by practice thereby believing God and making God first in all. The pure are those who live their life as dictated by the word of God. The pure are those who had chosen to be good and live for the benefit of others. The pure are those who had taken a vow against evil thought, the pure are those who covenanted to serve the holy God. Finally the pure are those that had been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ. The following scripture says more: 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, *Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. *And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Corinthians 5:17, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Mathew 9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. John 1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
re man is one who lives his life as God, the highest quality or greatest virtue of God is Holiness. God is the wealthiest, wisest, greatest, most powerful, the most high, the Almighty but all that do not really qualify him to be God, his greatest qualification is holiness. God is so powerful his eyes could not behold iniquities, he rejected his only begotten son on the cross of Calvary because he couldn’t behold the sin of the whole world which he carried. The prophets Isaiah exclaimed in Isaiah 59:1-3 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: *But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. *For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. Therefore you are not pure except you are holy. Holiness means been purified from all stains (sins). So the pure sees things through the eye of God, they wanted peace in place, they desired peaceful atmosphere and communities, the pure sees life from the right perspective and judge matters as God almighty would. When God gave king Solomon wisdom; he ruled the world. The pure holds the key to solution. The pure has access to the depth of God on any matter. With the pure your destiny is secured. The following scriptures explain better. Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself… 19-20.And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king. *And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm. Daniel 2:16-19 1 King 4:29-34 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore…And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom. If only, all the lawyers, judge, police, major in the army (soldier) and leaders could be pure; a new world will be born. Let’s turn to the other side of the coin and talk about
The direct opposite of pure is defile. The defiled are those born into defiled family, communities and among the defiled and were conquered by defilement. The defiled are those that were lured out of the right way of doing things into the wrong. The defiled are those who the evil forces of the world captured and corrupted. The defiled are those who had surrendered their soul unto the devil to govern their life. The defiled are those who allowed evil thought to rule their life. The defiled are those that had forfeited the grace of God upon their life. The defiled are those possessed by the devil to carry out evil assignments. The defiled are those that had fallen from their exalted seat of sinless-ness into the pit of sinful acts. We have the following categories of defilement.
- Spiritual Defilement: those that are suffering from devilish attack as a result of evil forces enchanted against them or those that are under spiritual captivity by divination. For instance most insanity is as a result of spiritual defilement. The devil has capacity of turning a normal man to be misbehaving as abnormal and made professor to be talking senseless things. Evil power can deposit sleeplessness into a man or woman to make their life filled with agitation and unrest. Those suffering from spiritual defilement are under influence stronger than them. Matt 17:15-18 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. *And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him… And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
- Intellectual Defilement: this is when a man is made to believe in things that are not true. For instance how would an adult be bowing down to graven images; it’s not normal, such as been made to believe that this images are god. Serving idols is an example of intellectual defilement and corrupted brains. One of the reasons why most people around the world today are defiled intellectually is because they rejected the Bible way out (knowledge). Hear these; homosexual and lesbianism is never an answer to marital crisis. Inflation is not an answer to economic crisis, killing is never an end to national crisis, medication is not an answer to all sicknesses and so on, may God give you understanding. Any subject that teaches that there is no God should be rejected, any subject that places scientist over divinity (God) is insanity. So many are mentally corrupted, these days that most girls are already disvirgin at age 12, there is no more difference between married women and girls in some places (except for giving birth to children) worldly knowledge and wrong notions makes you less than an animal. You can be free if you allow the word (Bible) to rule your life. Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
- Physical Defilement: These are done on human flesh, such as making incision on the body, drawings on the body; anything that causes your body to be off normal is not of God but defilement. Many occultist initiation were done on their body, stay away from it. You will discover that before your body could be defiled your spirit and soul must have been conquered. God will see you through in Jesus name. Those evil marks on your body can tie down your destiny forever, there are more to say about defilement but God’s word has it all, read it here: 1 Kings 18:28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
THE MEETING POINT:
The pure would always speak purified words and desire that the defiled come into the light. Most defiled people will always reject the pure because they are captured by he that is greater than them. The truth is that most idol worshipper will not agree with you that Christianity is the way and those captured in vain religions will disagree that Jesus is the only way. They have been captured intellectually, spiritually and physically and some of them had sworn to follow that wrong path as long as they live, so the defiled will always want to remain defiled, in other words other religions allows sin but Christianity is void of impurity. That word says ‘Unto the pure all things are pure:’ that means he always see the way out of every matter. but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; they counted all as same, but even their mind and conscience is defiled. That’s why it’s difficult for them to be free but
WHAT IS THE WAY OUT:
The defiled: Note that the end of your journey on this earth will lead you to eternal regret and suffering in the bottomless pit of hell. God almighty the maker of heaven and earth had made a propitiation for all your sins and sacrifice his only begotten son for you. 1 John 2:1-2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: *And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. Pray these prayers and be free, say: Lord Jesus, I receive you as my Lord and savior, from today be the only ruler and governor of my life. I will serve you for as long as I live. Amen!
The Pure: It’s high time for us to stop preaching without praying. Your anointing, the anointing of the Holy Ghost has capacity to arrest any sinner. When you go to speak to people the right way of God without the power of God at work in you, it may be efforts in futility. Pray first and preach next that way no force will be able to stand against the word and your preaching engagement will be fruitful. You can make more disciples and enlarge God’s kingdom on earth. Be blessed.
