A Virtuous Heart
A Virtuous Heart
Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children forever!
Deuteronomy 6:5 and thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
Matthew 5:8 blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.
Stolen Birthrights! What are we birthing forth in the earth? Who are we hurting? In the final analysis God will show up. He will show up to right the wrong done in the earth. Satan is sneakily trying to steal Jesusí birthright. What is Jesus birthright? Jesus came to the earth with a mission to seek and to save them which was lost. He died that we may live. He died that we didnít have to follow Satan to Hell. He died for the sin of man that they would have a choice in the matter. We choose to sin, we choose willfully to disobey God and man. The thing is we donít realize the test we are going through is of our faith and virtues where Christ is concerned.
In the life we live today can be found many flaws in the life of man that will keep us out of heaven and even Godís grace in the earth. In days prior when our fathers and forefathers disobeyed the Word of God and ran far from Him they didnít know the Word as we do today. Jesus, the Word has come and taught us to do better; we have Godís grace.
Jesus brought restoration to manís relationship with God the Father; giving man the opportunity to live in the natural as spiritual beings as in the beginning. Man was first spiritual then flesh. Man is dominated by the appetites of the fleshly human nature that is deprived of the Spirit of God. God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth. Jesus died that manís heart would once again be turned to the Father. If God donít help us there is no restoration of man in this life. Because a manís heart is not virtuous toward God they will not accept responsibility for their own actions. They are disrespectful to God and man. God is tired and disgusted with man but donít want to destroy us.
God has wanted man to turn their hearts back to Him for some time now and they reject Him. The love other things, the rudiments of the earth instead and because of it man will die and increase hell because of the love of God for the rest of mankind. He will not destroy the earth again. All the operations of human life are centered in the heart of man; so in the Spirit. We believe yet not see God. We feel the blood running warm in our veins, yet we donít know how the blood was placed on the inside. The blood was placed in man by God when He breathed the breath of life of man and he became a living soul. Life is in the blood and the heart is the seat of affection where God put His love for man in man. So therefore man must love from the heart and when they donít only evil proceed from them and they become a melting pot where they exhaust all physical strength to do wrong withering not only their hearts but the relationship between them and God.
God doesnít see as man sees for man looks at the outward appearance but God looks to the inside of man where evil thoughts, envy, and strife begin. They may appear to be so straight on the outside but inwardly they are wicked, evil. Matthew 9:4-8 Jesus speaking to the Scribes after healing a man of the palsy said wherefore think ye evil in your hearts because he knew their thoughts. Jesus dealt with many issues of menís hearts because they didnít want to believe that He was who he was because they could not do the things he did.
The pundants with their witticism, quips, and jokes were in awe when Jesus came on the scene. They accused him of being a blasphemer because He didnít do or say what they wanted to hear. When you donít walk and act as a man think you should; they get mad. These things are for the glorification of God and to know that we have forgiveness while we are yet in the earth; if we donít forgive it takes us to hell forever. Solomon one of the wisest men to walk the earth tells us in Proverbs 4:23 to keep our hearts with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life. Proverb 14:30 a sound heart is the life of the flesh. Proverbs 15:14-15 the heart of him that hath understanding seeks knowledge; but the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness. All the days of the afflicted are evil; but he that is of Aa merry heart hath a continual feast.
For as a man think in his heart so is he. The sin that proceed from the heart is written there with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond; it is graven upon the table of their heart. Many eat and drink with you but that does not mean that they are with you. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? The Lord himself searches the heart of man and try the reins that he may give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. The words that a man speaks and what he does come forth out of the heart. Hebrew 3:8 warns us to not harden our hearts in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness. We are in a wilderness in this nation today because there are wars and fighting among us in the elite of the land. Surely the enemy is glad for we have allowed Satan and his imps to cause divisions. Where divisions are the virtues of God is not.
Because of the forwardness of manís heart they are not virtuous towards God and a chaotic spirit has been loosed in America just as in the day of Jesus with the Scribes and Pharisees, Chief Priests and Sadducees. They have in the elite of the nation caused confusion, disorder, turmoil and discord. Proverbs 6:16-19 these six things doth the Lord hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him: a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies and he that soweth discord among brethren. Now comes the calamity suddenly upon all that will continue to sow conflict, strife, contention, and disagreement among the people. God is not playing at all and will not tolerate the disrespect, discrimination, and partiality among the leaders in America. These actions causes bigotry, prejudice, and bad judgment among the people of such a nation.
Because man does not have a virtuous heart there is no virtue exacted in their lifestyles so they cannot accurately and carefully be a God example. Integrity in the life of man is compromised, their temperance is short, no purity of life exist, they are nasty mentally, physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. Where is manís decency, trust, and honor among men. When one group think they are more moral than the other pride comes forth with a sense of nobility that loses sight of what is right and honest in the sight of God. While America is fighting the real enemy is preparing a real takeover. America repairs must be made and if we be ignorant and arrogant we will lose everything and no one wins; we will be in Civil War. No one can defeat us in battle but we can defeat ourselves and allow them to win the battle after all.
Wake up America, Republicans, Democrats, Liberals and all others. Itís not about you but the Nation, the United States of America. Itís time we change our ways, abort our angers, and perceive the things of God. Accept history and know that what we do is not in our own strength but in Christ. Itís time to submit ourselves to God that the real enemy donít take us out while we stand around and fight. As far as the real foreigners are concerned we are in a weakened state and far ready to be captured. Satan is an enemy to the world and he wants a kingdom, donít allow him to build his kingdom in us. We at all times must maintain our virtue holding on to a virtuous heart toward.
Hatred is as malignant as the worst kind of cancer. Discord and discontent is as lethal as the poison that comes from a venomous snake. The venom will kill with the one whip of the snakes tongue. It is as malicious and vicious as a lion and so antagonistic that no one can penetrate their psyche to bring them out of the virile effect of that state. They must come to Christ and repent that they once again become vibrant and a strong force against the enemy that has come to rob us of our souls.
Man is not our enemy, the Devil is. We need God to help us to be vigilant that we can be watchful, alert, observant, and attentive to the spirit that can take control of us that will turn us away from God. Itís time to wake up America; awake out of sleep and observe to do all that is required of us in Christ and out of Christ. When it comes to Christ we need 20/20 vision that cast out all vices that comes our way. Vices are wickedness, corruption, evil, depravity, immorality, iniquity or malignancy.
We have substituted things for God, delegated the works of our calling to entities that God didnít ordain. A virtuous heart after God will not breach, infringe, transgress or trespass the Laws of God or the Law of the Land in which we live. A virtuous heart grows in Christ and acquire the right affection not only for God but the whole of mankind. A virtuous heart when acquired decides its time to take our minds off of man and set our affections on things above, not on things of the earth. WE must love God more than our own selves that we dismiss the foolishness of high mindedness and become humble to what we know is right to do.
Submit to God today, hear what God is saying; be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your minds. We must think about edifying our soul rather than our pocketbooks. The love of money is the root of all evil. Itís a driving force that will take one to hell. We have one foot on earth and one in hell. Itís time to examine ourselves whether we be in Christ, for God or not
