"Purity of the Truth"

“Purity of the Truth”

You took off your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires; you are being renewed in the spirit of your minds; you put on the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth.      Ephesians 4:22-24

When a person comes to Jesus Christ for the SALVATION of their soul, they are in essence; “putting-off” their old self, which is CORRUPTED by DECEITFUL desires.  And they are no longer SEPARATED from God; their HEARTS are no longer FULL of DECEITFUL desires, because Jesus Christ is the CENTER of their LEARNING.  This LEARNING PROCESS is DEEPLY ROOTED in the TRUTH.  Jesus Christ is the SUBJECT of this process, because He is the TRUTH, and in Him is found FORGIVENESS and the REDEMPTION of one’s soul.

This NEW SELF is being RENEWED in the spirit of one’s MIND and HEART.  This is part of the process of being made in GOD’S LIKENESS in RIGHTEOUSNESS and in the PURITY of the TRUTH.  This PURITY of the TRUTH is in direct CONTRAST to the DECEITFUL DESIRES, which CORRUPTS mankind’s soul and leads them down a path to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE, once they are there.  Once a person becomes a TRUE CHILD of the LIVING GOD, they have a NEWNESS of the MIND, because of the NEWNESS of the CONTENT of the HEART. 

They are no longer locked into the EVIL DARKNESS of the MIND and HEART, and headed to an ETERNAL LIFE in HELL, but they NOW have a reason to REJOICE and be GLAD, because they have RECEIVED an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  And they are NO LONGER living a LIE, that they have received from the FATHER OF LIES, the devil, who wants nothing more than to snatch, as many as he can AWAY from God, and into the DARKEST PITS of HELL for ALL of ETERNITY.  Don’t let this be YOUR destiny.

COME and GIVE your HEART and LIFE to GOD, and be clothed in the PURITY of TRUTH, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, who DIED so you might LIVE for ALL ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  In order to exchange the LIE, you have been living in, for the TRUTH you NEED, you MUST be WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be CREATED according to GOD’S likeness in righteousness and in the PURITY of the TRUTH.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
