Double-Edged Sword and The Pursuit of Purity






Matthew 16:27For the Son of Man will come in His Father's glory with His angels, and then He will repay each one according to what he has done.

T
ogether with the increase of knowledge, there will also be an increase of lies and 
deceit. People who takes heed to seducing spirits....interpreting the Word of God for their own convenience. 
Remove all the vanities and personal interest in reading the Holy Scriptures and you shall understand that God's message was all very simple. Accept it as a little child with no hidden agenda whatsoever, just like a love-letter from your Father, who after all would not want to confuse you along with too much Theologies or Churchianities. 
I have never been more convicted in my sins after realizing that everything is merely all about how we live our life. We will answer God by the Life we lived on judgement day and that made me more afraid because after all, I have been very bad....
God's word is truly a double-edged sword.




   As I looked into my situation as an artist, it seems just a turning wheel of ups and a lot of times mostly downs...how money slips very easily...Now I knew that the pursuit of Wealth is actually "evil".... but Realist would say "We need to save for the future...." 
How much savings? Just how much is enough? 
When we place anything above or before God it is actually idolatry. 

I know in my heart that I am not a good person... 
Do you think I will really go to Heaven by all the knowledge that I have acquired? No, even if they were the "correct" path or understanding I still failed if I haven't done what God expected of me...and that is to Love others. 


  • Everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him. (1 John 2:29)
  • Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. (1 John 3:4)
  • Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7)
  • Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. (1 John 5:1)
  • Everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning. (1 John 5:18)
    • No one who denies the Son has the Father. (1 John 2:23)
    • No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. (1 John 3:6)
    • No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. (1 John 3:9)


This explains another folly of casual, non-serious churchianity: the folly of thinking we can pursue impure lives, while planning to repent at the end, and thus escape hell at the last minute. This is folly because a lifetime of impurity will have clouded the lens of the soul so badly that it is highly unlikely that suddenly Jesus will appear beautiful at the end. On the contrary, he will probably appear terrifying as you die, and a lifetime of impure preferences for other things above him will probably leave you hardened like Esau (Hebrews 12:17), not tender like the thief on the cross (Luke 23:43).

The pursuit of purity now, not in the hour of your death, is the mark of a true Christian. It is not an optional mark. It is necessary: Everyone — not some, buteveryone — who hopes to see God, and be pure in his presence forever, purifies himself as he is pure — now (1 John 3:3).  (Source)
