It is nothing new to those who are of faith that God is strong and sovereign; however, what many are unaware of is the source of this strength, from which flows great sovereignty.
Our God is pure, genuine, transparent, without contamination, nothing more than what He truly is.
There is no middle ground or partiality in God, He is what He is.
He is complete!
The purity of God is His strength; He is strength itself because He is pure!
The desire of the Most High is for us to be like Him, pure, so that we may also be strong and everlasting.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3.2-3
You must have already noticed the huge difference between a perfume and a cologne, right?
A pure perfume is a pure fragrance, without additives such as water or alcohol. Because nothing extra was added to its essence, this perfume becomes much more expensive, and strong, remaining on the skin for much longer. The cologne, on the other hand, is diluted (contaminated) and this makes it weak, cheap and with a very short lifespan.
Many who desire to attain the fullness of God do not realize this detail, which is that it’s impossible to be like Him and be contaminated, nourishing malice and the intentions of your own heart. This difference is evident during times like the Israel Campaign, where many are deceived by unclean offerings, tainted with pride, and a desire to prove to everyone how the person achieved this or that, when in reality we should SACRIFICE with purity to glorify our God with the results, with splendid testimonies and therefore exalt His Name even more.
The world sees the pure as “weak and foolish.” Those who are of the flesh sum up purity as being naive or ease to deceive. But to God, the pure will inherit EVERYTHING, they will remain, they will see His face. God considers the pure STRONG!
For this reason, let’s make this analysis, evaluate our intentions, be pure in our SACRIFICES, pour out before the Feet of Our Lord all filth, all thoughts of doubt planted by defamatory conversations. Let us truly be like Him, PURE.
For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall be that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and see My glory. Isaiah 66.18
