The Cleansing of the Word

This morning the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “While standing in line I saw three spirits eating into the heart of another; Loneliness; pride; and jealousy. When these were overcome the results were stupendous!”

The Lord then showed me, that through the results of these same people receiving well, He is provoking others to jealousy.

“This is a good thing, says the Lord.”

We have a choice as to how we respond to “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”

When we serve as He served, our needs will be met well in advance.

“You will heal well in this place says the Lord!”

Lately, I have been thinking about the words of Jesus in John 15:3 – “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you,” and pondering, “How can this be?”

Then the Lord reminded me,

Christ sanctifies and cleanses us with the washing of water by the word – Christ is that living Word.

When we receive the words of Jesus, we receive the heart of the Lord. Amen.

If you would like to have a relationship with God through accepting His Son Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, please pray the prayer below.

Dear Heavenly Father. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. I am sorry for the sins I have committed and I ask You to forgive me. I now turn away from all the things that I know to be wrong and I receive Your Holy Spirit and Your gift of eternal life. Thank You for this free gift of Salvation and eternal life. Help me to come to know and experience Your love for me more and more, and to now share the love You have given me with others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

We would love to hear from you: If you have prayed this prayer for the first time, or have recommitted your life to Christ today I would love to hear from you to encourage you in your new walk with Christ. You can send me an email by clicking 'Get in Touch' on the yellow bar at the bottom of the Home or Articles pages.

What next: Once we have started our relationship with Christ – it is important that we continue to grow in our understanding of Him, and experience His love for us on a regular basis. God does this for us as we read the Bible, which I encourage you to do on a regular basis, asking the Holy Spirit to help you understand it and make it “come alive” to you in a very personal way. May I encourage you to do this every day, and to actively pursue those things that God reveals to you. We also need to be spending time with other like-minded Christians on a regular basis, who are also growing in their relationship with God. We gain encouragement from being with other growing believers. Ask God to lead you to a Bible-believing church (or Bible-believing Christian group) that will encourage your relationship with Christ and help to meet your needs. Ask Him, and trust that He will guide you to the place of fellowship that is right for you.

May God both work in you and through you, those things that He desires, as you continue to submit your life to Him each day.
