Keep Yourself Clean Pure and Holy

Many Christian believers are living in
sin and unholiness. They are religious, they go to church, they know
the Bible, and they think they are saved, but they have no communion
with Jesus Christ, because they are living in sin. We have to keep
ourselves pure and holy in order to be in communion with Jesus. Jesus
has no communion with sinning believers. Our body is a temple of the
Holy Spirit for Him to dwell in and if we defile our bodies, if we
allow ourselves to be soiled and dirty, filled with sin immorality,
then the Holy Spirit will leave us, we will not have any relationship
with Jesus.
We have to live pure and holy and then
Jesus will come and dwell in us, but if we do not obey Jesus, and we
do not live according to His Commandments, in holiness and
righteousness, in obedience to him then He will not dwell in us we
will not have any communion with Him we will not have the hope of
We read the words of Jesus in John
chapter 14 verse 21, He said:"He who has my Commandments and
keeps them is the one who loves Me, and he who loves me will be loved
by My Father, and I will love Him, and I will disclose myself to
Him." Jesus is saying that if we obey His commandments then He
will love, us and He will come and dwell with us and He will disclose
Himself to us. He will speak to us. His Spirit will dwell in us. In
verse 23 we read Jesus said:"If anyone loves Me he will keep my
word, and My Father will love him and We will come to him and make
our abode with him."
Jesus will come and live with you and
me, if we love him and we obey Him, and we keep His words, but we
must keep ourselves pure and holy, because our body is a temple of
the Holy Spirit for Him to dwell in and He does not dwell with
impurity and with sin. If we allow ourselves to be soiled the Holy
Spirit will leave us.
The Apostle Paul wrote in 1st
Corinthians 6 verse 9:" Or do you not know that the unrighteous
will not inherit the kingdom of God. Do not be deceived, neither
fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor
homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards nor
revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were
some of you, but you were washed, you were sanctified, but you were
justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of
our God." We were all sinners, but if we have a come to Jesus we
are not sinners anymore, then we have turned away from sin and we
keep ourselves holy for Jesus Christ, for His Holy Spirit to dwell
In verse 15 Paul says:"Do you not
know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away
the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it
never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a
prostitute is one body with her, for He says the two shall become one
flesh, but the one who joins himself to the Lord is one Spirit with
Him. Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside
of the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. Or do you
not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you,
Whom you have from God and you are not your own, for you have been
bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body."
Many Christian believers live in
adultery and fornication. Many are homosexual. They live in morality.
Their minds are defiled through the media, video games, TV, movies,
pornography and bad company, worldly friends. They have become
conditioned to evil, watching soap opera, and participating and
worldly entertainment. They are of the world. They are not pure, they
are not holy and they cannot be in communion with Jesus, they have no
hope of salvation. Merely believing in Jesus cannot save us. We must
repent, stop sinning, be holy, turn to Jesus, be baptized in water
for the washing off of sin, and then keep yourself clean, be a temple
of the Holy Spirit, in which He can dwell. If you allow yourself to
be defiled again, then the Holy Spirit will leave you.
If you once knew Jesus, if you once
followed Jesus and you backslid, you went away from Jesus, then
repent and cleanse yourself, get rid of your sin get, rid of your bad
friends. Purify yourself of your cleanliness, your immorality. Make
yourself a pure vessel, clean and acceptable unto Jesus, or else you
will never be in communion with Him.
Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in those
who seek Him, who obey Him and who live holy. Most professing
Christians have no relationship with Jesus. They have no communion
with Jesus. Jesus said:"My sheep hear My voice, they listen to
Me and they follow Me." Very few Christians know the voice of
Jesus. Very few follow Him. It is because they're living in sin. It
is because they are not holy and receptive vessels, they are not
pure. They do not reserve themselves unto Jesus Christ and therefor
they are not fit for the kingdom of heaven.
We have to purify
ourselves of all uncleanliness, all immorality, all sin, all
worldliness, and put our focus on Jesus; be a suitable vessel for the
Holy Spirit to dwell in, and then He will speak to us. He will guide
us. He will teach us. We will be in communion with Him, but if we
allow sin to come in, if we give the devil a foothold, then the Holy
Spirit of Christ will leave us. He will go silent on us, because we
choose evil, and through our choice of wrong and of evil we reject
Jesus Christ and we stray from Him, we stop following Him and go on
the wrong path.
Many have never followed Jesus. They
have never been in that close relationship with Him. They believe
they are saved but they are on the broad road to destruction. There's
only one way to have eternal life and that is to follow and obey
Jesus Christ, reserve yourself unto Him, seek Him always in prayer
and He will reveal Himself to you. Stay with Jesus until the very end
and you will be saved, but if you are not holy you will not see Him.
Without holiness no man shall see God. Without holiness no man will
enter the kingdom of God. Without holiness nobody will have any
relationship with Jesus Christ. Keep yourself clean and walk with
May Jesus bless you.
