Eyesalve: Wander From Truth

By | Eyesalve, Faith | No Comments

Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back.” James 5:19

 

Those who preach “Once Saved, Always Saved,” insist that you cannot lose your salvation. If you know me, you know I hate the OSAS doctrine, yet I will agree that you can’t lose your salvation. Your salvation just doesn’t turn up missing one day in the middle of your life while you are loving Jesus. What can and does happen to Christians is that they wander from the truth. That is when a Christian needs to be turned back to the truth. The truth is how a person is made free. Rejecting the truth brings a believer back under bondage. Verse twenty goes on to say “Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”

Eyesalve: Who Back it Up

Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.” Hebrews 13:7

 

Don’t be so quick to follow just any minister who talks spiritual. The NKJV says it this way. “…considering the outcome of their conduct.” Those who don’t just teach and preach it, but display a life that backs up what they say are those who you are to imitate.

Eyesalve: Grace to Serve

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:” Hebrews 12:28

 

Some teach grace as just a means of salvation. No doubt that it is by grace we are saved. But it don’t stop there, in fact salvation is just the beginning of the work of grace in our life. We need grace to serve God, we need grace to do it with reverence and godly fear.

Eyesalve: Stay Busy Running

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1

 

There are two forms of doing that is set forth in this verse. We can feel the weight and do the sin that so easily besets us, or we can run (do) the race that is set before us. If we stay busy running the race we won’t have to carry the weight of sin nor have time for sin.

Eyesalve: Son of Zadok?

By | Eyesalve, Remnant | No Comments

It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray.” Ezekiel 48:11

 

There is a remnant, like the sons of Zadok, who are staying faithful to the Lord, while a large portion of the church is going astray. Are you a son of Zadok?

Eyesalve: Grace to Obtain

By | Discipleship | No Comments

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:15-16

 

By grace we are saved. By grace we get help in the time of need. Grace is not for salvation alone, grace is needed to continue to obtain mercy, live for God and have victory over sin.

Eyesalve: God’s the Author

By | Eyesalve, Word of God | No Comments

Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,  (8)  Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:” Hebrews 3:7-8

 

The writer of Hebrews is quoting Psalm 95:7-11. This is a Psalm that David wrote. However, we need to be reminded that the Holy Spirit is really the author. If we forget that God is the author of our whole Bible then we may start to consider God’s word as just the teachings or opinions of man.

Eyesalve: Live Sensibly

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.” Titus 3:12

 

When you decide to do something sensible and practical, do you always feel like you have to qualify it by saying, “the Lord is leading me to do this?” If there was a man who lived a life that was led of the Lord, it was the apostle Paul. Yet Paul made a decision, and the way it sounds, he made it through the use of common sense. Don’t over spiritualize your walk. Honor God with good sensible living. After all, doesn’t wisdom come from the Lord?
