Create in Us Clean Hearts, Part 2
In Psalm 51:6–10, we see King David telling us that having a clean heart means that we have truth in our innermost being, who we truly are inside. We must pay attention to our thoughts, because out of our thoughts come our words, emotions, attitudes, and motives. Purity and cleanness of heart is not natural to us. It must be worked into our hearts by the Holy Spirit. That’s why David turned to God with these words. King David realized that science can’t help us with this, and psychology can’t cleanse our heart. Who we are inside comes out in our words and our ways. We all need to stop and allow the Holy Spirit to take an account of our hearts. Cleansing is a process. As we come into the fullness of repentance, as David did, we are cleansed by the washing of water by the Word. Then we apply to blood of Jesus to maintain our cleansing. This message will delve into details of these matters. Listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on April 5, 2020.
Key Scripture Psalm 51:10 NKJV
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
