Eyesalve: No Rising Up

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going: 30A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any; 31A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up.” Proverbs 30:29-31

 

And even more amazing than a King whose troops are with him is a shepherd (pastor) who is likeminded with the body and the body is like minded with him. Look out devil

 

Eyesalve: Feel Used?

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

“But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.” I Corinthians 12:18

 

Don’t you just hate it when people use you? Well God wants to use you and it pleases Him when He can. Do you feel used?

Eyesalve: Be Used

“But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.” I Corinthians 12:18

 

God has set the members in the body. Therefore God should be able to use the members. Pray that you may be used.

Eyesalve: Body Ministry

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

“But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.” I Corinthians 12:8

 

Each one of you have value and add something to the body of Christ. Though it isn’t a common practice in the church these days, we have what we call body ministry time in our church service. It is a time for those who have a word, revelation, encouragement and even a reproof for the body to be able to speak up for the Lord. From my experience of being a pastor for over 15 years I can tell you that there is a risk to opening up a church service for such a time as body ministry because people can speak in the flesh. I want to say though that it is worth the risk. For the body of Christ to ever function as she should it takes participation from the body. So saint of God, don’t put pressure on your pastor to open up the service for a time of body ministry. Instead, seek God, attend church full of love. If the majority of the body will do this it can open your pastor’s heart to have confidence in the body to minister to each other under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

Eyesalve: Don’t Help Him

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10

 

There is one who accuses each of us before God, let’s not help him with that. Don’t help him accuse your brethren. Don’t help him accuse you.

Eyesalve: Building Blocks

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18

 

The church is built upon the rock of the truth that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. When we preach the truth, we then become the building blocks (rocks) that Christ can use to build His church.

Eyesalve: Jesus Builds

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18

 

Our generation has forgotten that Jesus Christ is the One who builds the church.

Eyesalve: But That They Would Know

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.” Galatians 1:12-14

 

We desperately need to pray for our church kids. If they don’t get a real revelation of Christ and their need for a savior, they will see our church meetings as their religion. Before Paul had a revelation of Christ, all he had was the Jews religion and the traditions of his fathers. I don’t care if our children carry on our traditions or not, what is of the most importance is that they know this great Christ.

Eyesalve: Spiritual Refreshing

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 18For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.” I Corinthians 16:17-18

 

Let your coming to the fellowship of believers be not of backbiting and complaining, but instead bring along a supply of spiritual refreshment for the saints.

Eyesalve: God is Really Among You

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: 25And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.” I Corinthians 14: 24-25

 

The last words of verse 25 say, “and report that God is in you of a truth” Another version says it this way; “proclaiming, God is really among you.” So with that I ask, has a stranger ever come into your fellowship and proclaimed that God is really among you?
