Open Heaven Daily Devotional November 21 2023: A Pure Heart

    The theme for Open Heaven Daily Devotional November 21 2023 is A Pure Heart

    SCRIPTURE: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18.

    Purity means ‘No contamination’.

    This also stems from the definition of purity we discussed yesterday.

    When something else comes into a material, it is no longer pure.

    All children of God must love Him with all their heart.

    Once any part of your heart is given to any other object apart from God, that object is a contaminant and must be removed immediately.

    Every little contamination is dangerous.

    I gave an illustration many years ago in one of my books As Pure As Light, that if there is a big bucket of absolutely pure water that a group of people want to drink from, then a very little drop of feaces from a baby’s diaper drops into it – even if it is just a bit, would they still drink it?

    The big bucket of clean water becomes contaminated the moment faeces drops into it irrespective of the quantity.

    The water would no longer be pure and no one would want to drink from it.

    In John 14:30, the devil came, examined Jesus Christ from top to bottom and discovered that He was pure; without any contamination whatsoever.

    That is the testimony I want to have also: that when the devil examines me, I will be able to say, “The devil found no contamination in me”. What about you?

    In 1 Timothy 5:22, Paul was advising Timothy:

    Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

    Don’t get contaminated by other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.

    You can be contaminated by other people’s sin when you partake in it.

    For example, anyone who watches pornography is partaking in other people’s sins.

    When you and some people do something wrong and one of them tells a lie to cover the entire group and you say, “After all I am not the one that lied”, you are partaking in someone else’s sin and that has contaminated you.

    In Proverbs 1:10, we are advised:

    “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.” If sinners entice you to come and be a partaker of their sins, run away.

    There is a congregation called the congregation of the dead (Proverbs 21:16).

    If you are found amongst them, you are like them already.
