He Might Tell You

By | Cross, Eyesalve

“And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.” Acts 9:6

 

Make sure if you ask the Lord what He would have you to do, that you really want to know because He might tell you and then you have to obey.

His Life Wasn’t Dear

By | Cross, Eyesalve

Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.” Acts 20:23

 

I wonder how many of us would decide to quit our walk with the Lord if we were told that the only thing we can be sure awaits us in the coming days is bonds and afflictions. Paul stayed faithful, even though he knew what lay in store for him. The secret to his victory is found in the next verse. He did not find his life dear to him.

Our Place and Nation

By | Cross, Eyesalve

If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.” John 11:48

 

We have far too many ministers and Christians who are afraid to speak up for morality in this nation. We must be grateful for those who the Lord has raised up to be a prophetic voice to this nation. We need prophets like John the Baptist, who will speak to those in authority and tell them what they are doing isn’t right before God. Let me go in the other direction by asking you, are you more of a patriot than you are a Christian? Does your Christianity hinge on the continual existence of America maintaining her constitutional rights? If it would come to it that some other power would come and “take away both our place and our nation,” would you still maintain your walk with the Lord? I want to remind you all, we believers belong to a different kingdom. There is no other like it. It is the kingdom of God. That is the kingdom we must promote.

Hindered?

And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. 51And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.” Mark 10:50-51

 

Why did the blind man cast away his garment? I believe it was because it hindered him from getting to Jesus quickly. Is there anything you need to cast away that is keeping you from getting to Jesus?

Rejoicing Over It

By | Cross, Eyesalve

And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.” Acts 5:41

 

How do you react when others, especially family and friends shame you over your love for Jesus? If you don’t handle it very well, be assured that you are on your way to one day rejoicing over it.

Eyesalve: Are You Able?

By | Cross, Eyesalve

But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.” Matthew 20:22-23

 

Did you notice Jesus did not rebuke the two disciples when they said they were able to drink from His cup and be baptized with His baptism. Jesus did not consider them to be proud. He won’t rebuke you either or consider you proud if you believe you are able to drink of Jesus cup and be baptized with His baptism.
