Heart Surgery

Jesus always had a pure heart and saw God in a way that we as fallen man have yet to experience. Jesus said in Matthew 5:8, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Jesus also said in John 14:30, “the prince of this world cometh, and has nothing in me.” The word for pure in Matthew 5:8 means clean, pure, unsoiled or unalloyed. Jesus said there is nothing of the prince of this world in me. His heart was pure and remained pure for all His life on earth. This is why Jesus lived a life in the Father and the Father in Him. It is a pure heart that will generate a relationship with God that will equal the life Christ lived.

Jesus being born of a virgin lived a life outside the blood lineage of Adam. His Father is God, who knew no sin and therefore Jesus’s life was influenced by purity, and love, and glory. We who were born into the blood lineage of Adam know experientially very little to nothing about this life Jesus lived. Jesus was not subject to the inherent weakness of man. Jesus was on the same plain as the first Adam who also had a pure heart before the fall.

After the fall the heart is described in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? The Hebrew grammar for “wicked” is a verbal adjective in the passive voice indicating continued simple action. It is often used of a state that has come into existence and continues to exist. The word “wicked” itself is a verb meaning, to be sick, incurable, in poor health. It describes a weakened condition that can lead to death. In its most potent theological usage, it describes the incurably wicked desperately sick condition of the human heart that only God knows. Our heart condition is a direct result of partaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. There is nothing in ourselves or by ourselves that we can do to reverse this condition. This is why we needed a savior.

In Psalms 51:10, David prayed, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” The Hebrew word of create has the connotation that this process can only be done by God. Only God can perform the heart surgery we need to create a pure heart in our lives. That's why God will get all the glory for your life and mine.

A pure heart will enable you to become one with the creator who is pure. Jesus prayed in John 17:23, “I in them and You in Me that they be made perfect in one, and that the world will know that You sent Me, and loved them as You loved Me.”

The time for God to do this miracle in our lives is upon us. In the fulfillment of the last great feast the Feast of Tabernacles, we will see the church become all glorious, without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, holy and blameless, Ephesians 5:27.
