Acts 5:3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? 4 While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”
Purity simply means to be clean, unblemished, without defect. Most just link it to our sexual morality, but its so much more folks! A pure or honesty before God and man! I want Gid to fill my heart, as I should, but if Im impure, satan will take advantage and flood me out. If I dont settle in my heart to believe and hold to Gods word, Im susceptible to satans lies thus walking in lies against the Holy Spirit. Here we see that the Holy Spirit is a person, not a force. None of us are clean, without defect, or no blemishes. Yet, as we are honest and confess our sins unto Jesus, He will forgive us them and cleanse us from all unrighteousness! We should never try and paint a better picture on the outside than whats happeningin our hearts. Just think, if the church today was as pure as this one, how many folks would be falling dead?
