Pure In Heart

30 Mar

I thought about people, and i realized if you want to get someone who loves you, get a dog. If you want to get someone who loves themself, get a human. Now i understand what the two greatest commandments mean.

Matthew Chapter 22

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

This tells us to love God more than anything, more than our own selves. And then to love everyone around us the same as we love ourselves. Equally. Why? BEcause we want to be like God. Also i understand why Jesus tells us to love our enemies.

Matthew Chapter 5

43 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully
use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for
he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth
rain on the just and on the unjust.

The reason we love our enemies is because we hate no one. We don’t hate anybody, not even our enemies. Why? Because we want to be like God.

The other day i prayed to God after i read about the BEatitudes, and i prayed that God will teach me how to be pure in heart.

Matthew Chapter 5

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

The next day or so, God directed me to the following Scripture

Luke Chapter 6

40 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect
shall be as his master.

This is my Answer. If i want to be pure in heart, perfect, then i need to be as my Master. So i want to be like God, in all ways.

Matthew Chapter 10

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the
servant as his lord.

Now concerning the Rapture, there is much controversy surrounding that topic. Satan’s job is to deceive everyone, and Satan wants to deceive everyone so that they go to hell, instead of Heaven. So Satan will attack every possible way that people can be saved and try to cause them to die. And the RApture is another way that Satan tries to deceive people. By telling them there is no Rapture. But Satan will also try to say there is no God, there is no Heaven. Satan tries to deny everything about God.

AFter reading about the RApture, i believe it is Scripturally supported. There is Scriptural evidence. People discuss different people who have taught or preached about the Rapture. I believe Jesus told us that there will be a Rapture, for the elect.

Matthew Chapter 24

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son
of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe
entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken,
and the other left.
42 ¶ Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth
come.

So i do believe in Rapture, and the reason is because it is Scripturally supported. I don’t know what the exact details are, but i do Know that Jesus said for us to “watch and pray”, because He will return one day. And His return is imminent. Whether if you call it the RApture, or what, the important point is that we need to watch and always be ready for the coming of the Son of Man.

Be not deceived!
