A clean house that is made clean by our own efforts is not the same as a clean house made clean by the Spirit. A house cleaned by worldly authority will manifest with demonic activity, but a house cleaned by the Cross of Christ manifests with the Holy Ghost. We are able to see the comparison very clearly within worldly institutions. For example, hospitals are very clean, mental hospitals are very clean, prisons are very clean, and schools are very clean. There are manmade policies, regulations, laws, and restrictions that require such facilities to be kept very, very, clean. Simultaneously, there are no provisions for Divine healings. People continue in their sickness, continue in mental distress, continue in prison violence, and continue with school violence. Self-efforts to solve these problems include humanistic psychology and prescription medications. Now, if we attempt to build a society on the same type of cleanliness, with manmade efforts, it takes God out of the process. They call it tolerance for all people and lifestyles. Yet, even in all that cleanliness, there is not provisions made for reducing the consequences of sin that is within the flesh of individuals. Violence and sickness are everywhere around the world, in greater proportions than ever before. At the same time, we hear the words, “New World Order,” “Globalization,” and even “Anti-Christ.” The Children of God, born of the Cross of Christ, feel persecuted as if being purged and legislated out of the process.
As manmade “cleaning” efforts take place, we hear more and more of the police forces in every city building up their budgets to equip themselves with more effective weaponry, armor, and riot gear. Homeland Security is a recently new agency created to cleanse unwanted elements from entering into nations. Health care is far from being available to everyone equally as prescription drugs are sky-rocketing, and drug epidemics plague communities everywhere. We are told that socially the gap between the rich and poor is widening and already is very wide. All these things are a result of a worldwide effort of “cleaning” in the name of globalization called the New World Order. They are even purging the Living God from the minds, spirits, and souls of their chosen citizenry. That is happening globally! They imply that if you want to identify with the modern trends and be all you can be then you need to believe in the modern god and deny the Living God. Their cleansing will usher in the Great Tribulation, and the Anti-Christ, as demonic activity intensifies from day to day. From this, we know that the Lord Jesus Christ will be coming soon!
Reconciling ourselves to the Living God is the only way that the sin problem will ever be cleansed. Since the fall of Adam, the same sin exists in society, and in this age of the modern god, the same sin continues to manifest in the same way. What Christ did for us on the Cross is the only way possible to cleanse the spirit and to restore our fellowship with the Holiness of God. It always has been and always will be. I know how true this is from the day I put my faith in Christ, who put my sin into remission and gave birth to the Holy Ghost in me. As soon as I began to talk about Jesus Christ and the Living God, I went from social acceptance to living a life alone. It is obvious that God, the Message of the Cross, and the Children born of the Holy Ghost are being “politely” purged and “excused” from society. I willingly set myself apart from the ways of the world. Actually, the only thing I am being “excused” from is a destructive lifestyle directed by Satan and filled with demonic activity. Our home is not of this world, we have no part in trying to cleanse a world by worldly authority, but our Home is in the New Jerusalem because of the cleansing of our Spirit by what Christ has done for us on the Cross.
We are the Temple of God, and Christ abiding in us cleanses us from all the things that the world says needs to be cleansed. God’s Spirit in us fills us with love for humanity and a desire to see all people cleansed by the Spirit. However, Satan does not want us to depend on God’s work through the Cross of Christ…God brings cleansing to the mind, spirit, and soul. Satan wants us to think we can do the cleansing all on our own. If we follow his path of cleaning, he will purge the House of God of all the Fruit of the Holy Ghost. It will be a House purged of any affection for God. Our house will be just as clean as a hospital, prison, mental institute, or school, but it will be a House controlled by Satan and made ready for the habitation of demons. Of utmost importance, it is essential that our faith is in what Christ has done for us on the Cross, which defeats Satan and his demons, and helps us to understand that cleansing comes in the Spirit through the Holy Ghost. We are the Temple of God, not giving place to the modern god, but standing firm in the cleansing of the soul for the whosoever.
“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he finds it swept and garnished. Then goes he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” Luke 11;24-26
