Spiritual Heart Failure: Definition, Examination and Contamination - Part Three

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” Romans 5:12 (KJV)

The past two weeks we have been considering spiritual heart failure, reviewing its definition and examination.  This week we will turn our thoughts to the third element which is contamination. The word contaminate is defined as “to taint, pollute, or defile, meaning to make impure or unclean.” Contaminate also implies intrusion of or contact with (for a substance such as water) dirt or foulness from an outside source. 

Our passage points to the spiritual pollution that has terribly touched and tainted every soul. It is a sinful scourge that separates our souls from God. It is a universal pandemic that repels any medical remedy or scientific research from man.  We are all unclean before a Holy God. What saith scripture?

“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5 (KJV)

“Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one.” Job 14:4 (KJV)

“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6 (KJV)

“But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.” Galatians 3:22 (KJV)

The character of the human heart offers a dramatic contrast with the Word of God.  Scripture is our eternal, pure and infallible reference for truth.

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Matthew 24:35 (KJV)

“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” Psalm 12:6 (KJV)

The Scriptures declare that we are all contaminated inside and out. Our thoughts, intellect, emotions are all infected with iniquity. But with joyful noise I write unto you that we have a Redeemer and He has revoked the encroachment of this egregious epidemic. Our resurrected Lord Jesus Christ is the remedy for spiritual heart failure! Our healing does not come from W.H.O. (World Health Organization) but W.H.O.(Wonderful, Healer and Omnipotent) Jesus Christ.

Hear what the book of Hebrews declares about how the Lord Jesus Christ has cleansed us from our corruption and contamination:

“By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrews 10:20-22 (KJV, emphasis added)

Deeply loved by God: are you aware of and or you presently experiencing the healing and cleansing of your Head, Emotions, Affections, Reasoning, Tongue (speech) and Soul?  If not, go to the great and good Physician. Make that appointment in prayer and faith. You don’t need health insurance because He gives usblessed assurance!

For the Glory of God,
