THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT PART 9
BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART
-Matthew 5:8 states, … Blessed are the pure in heart: … The phrase "pure in heart" refers to a clean heart
and clean hands. It speaks of innocence before God. Psalm 73:1 states, … Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as
are of a clean heart … Psalm 24:3,4 states, … Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in
His holy place? HE THAT HAS CLEAN HANDS, AND A PURE HEART; WHO HAS NOT LIFTED UP HIS SOUL UNTO VANITY, NOR SWORN DECEITFULLY
-A pure heart speaks of a person after God’s own heart. This means that our goal is to know the heart of God, and
then to apply it to our lives. A pure heart is one that has NO AGENDA of its own, but to do the will of the Father. The pure
in heart are seeking ONLY FOR SPIRIT AND TRUTH. Their motives are pure ( clean ) in the eyes of God.
-This is why denominations and man-made religions are so limited in their experience, teaching, and manifestation of God
in the earth. THEY HAVE AN AGENDA! THEIR AGENDA IS TO PROMOTE THEIR PARTICULAR DENOMINATIONAL DOCTRINES AND BELIEFS!
Your heart will either pledge allegiance to God ( His Spirit and truth ), or your heart will pledge allegiance to your denominational
doctrines and beliefs. Why do most people avoid the “pure in heart experience” with God? They avoid this experience
because THEY LOVE THE PRAISES OF MEN!!! Most would rather remain impure in heart due to their love for their personal
agenda. As well, they do not want to go through the purifying fire of God. In order to be pure in heart you must be
PURIFIED! Surely that makes sense, doesn’t it?
-Let us not be afraid to search our heart, asking the Father to show us what condition it is in. As we bask in His presence,
He will expose to us all that is not pure within us. Someone who is pure in heart can not go wrong. If we veer off the road
( and we will ) our Father will lovingly put us back on the strait and narrow path that leads to life. YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG
WITH A PURE HEART!
