Being purified by God
The more you seek God, the more poison He purges from us. If you don't see that happening in your lives then I'm afraid you aren't growing.
18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. Proverbs 4
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
And God will show you where ignorance is within you. False doctrines. False beliefs, Pride, God will show you what you need to do to be successful in your walk with Him so He can use you more completely. If you don't feel you need to be in His blessings every second of the day then you are deceived. .
It is God who will do it but we have to walk with Him. We have to deny ourselves. Our thoughts. Our wills, THAT is "taking up the cross" and following the Lord. You can't just drop that cross anytime you feel like it... This is basic doctrine here. Baby Christian stuff!! And yet so many don't know this. Or don't want to know. God sees your heart.. You have a little piece of yourself you're not willing to give.. This needs to be purged and that happens as you walk with the Lord every day!
And God will grant you power to overcome and He will replace every bit of darkness within you with His LIGHT which is God's Word.
For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 1 Corinthians 11:31
Judge yourself now through God's Word, and allow yourself to be corrected by God the Father. In Jesus Name. Amen
You can be saved!
God loves the people in the world so much that He came down to die for us. If God is opening your heart to His message and you feel convicted for your sins which have separated you from a holy God and you feel the need to be forgiven, then say this prayer. This is how I was powerfully converted to the Christ in 1997!
Say, "My Lord and my God, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe Jesus the Christ died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. I believe Jesus raised from the dead and ascended into heaven and is now on the right-hand side of God listening to this prayer. I open up the door of my heart and I invite You in, Lord Jesus. Thank you, God, for saving my soul and I vow to serve you with all my heart which is the first and greatest commandment. Amen."
