Eyesalve: Surrendering Would Be Easy

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.” Acts 26:20

 

Though you will not find the word “surrender” in the KJV Bible, the principle is seen in many places. The words, “repent” and “turn to God” allude to that principle. That is what the Christian life is, it is a life that is surrendered to the Lord. If it wasn’t for man’s pride, surrendering would be one of the easiest things he could ever do.

 

Eyesalve: Show Them the Light

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ | No Comments

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Acts 25:18

 

Jesus called Paul to open the eyes of the people and turn them from darkness. The simplest way there is to help people see is to turn on a light. Saints, the answer to the darkness this world is in is to show them the light of Christ. If we don’t have that light, then they won’t be able to see anything else we can do for them.

Eyesalve: Children of Light

By | Eyesalve, Sanctification | No Comments

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.” I Thessalonians 5:5

 

Whenever we participate with the heathen in those things they do in darkness, then we are not walking as “children of light” nor are we walking as “children of the day.”

Eyesalve: To Be Encouraged

By | Eyesalve, Faith | No Comments

And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?” II Kings 5:13

 

It is a wonderful thing, when we have those moments of doubt, to be encouraged by the brethren to believe God.

Eyesalve: Godly Edifying

By | Eyesalve, Word of God | No Comments

Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.” I Timothy 1:4

 

I think I can say that I have seen Christians argue over the bible more than I have seen them use it to edify one another. I know I have had to repent for doing that many times in my life. How is it that when we have the book of Truth, Christians seem to like to fight over things that are incidental and have no spiritual value? Let’s all set our mind to bless and edify one another with the Word of God.

Eyesalve: Discern Through the Word

By | Eyesalve, Word of God | No Comments

And he said, I may not return with thee, nor go in with thee: neither will I eat bread nor drink water with thee in this place: 17For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest. 18He said unto him, I am a prophet also as thou art; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him.” I Kings 13:16-18

 

Yes church, prophets can lie to you. Discern everything that is said to you through the word of God.

Eyesalve: Awake To Righteousness

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.” I Corinthians 15:34

 

Let me ask you, “Who is the one who can live a righteous life, the sinner or the one who has been awaken to righteousness?” You cannot make yourself saved by doing righteousness, but once you are saved and declared righteous, you can actually walk in righteousness.

Eyesalve: What They Need

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.” I Thessalonians 4:9

 

My good evangelist friend David Owens made a powerful statement to me one day. He said,  “Man’s love gives people what they want; God’s love gives people what they need.”

Eyesalve: What Manner of Man

By | Eyesalve, Ministry | No Comments

For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.” I Thessalonians 1:5

 

It is so important to be in and involved with a church, where you can observe the life of the minister(s). Paul said that the Thessalonians observed just what manner of a man Paul was. What manner of men are those who minister to you?

Eyesalve: Whom We Preach

By | Evangelism, Eyesalve | No Comments

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:” Colossians 1:27-28

 

I will not deny that the Bible tells us to preach the gospel. But to preach the gospel is more than proclaiming what the bible says. Verse 28 starts by saying, “Whom we preach.” The gospel isn’t just preaching what Jesus said, but it is preaching Jesus.
