Eyesalve: The Spirit is Willing

By | Eyesalve, Holy Spirit | No Comments

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41

 

Though it may require a lot of discipline to get your flesh to pray, be encouraged that the Spirit in you has great desire to pray. As you learn to walk in the Spirit, your desire for prayer will increase.

Eyesalve: The Seeker Sensitive Church

By | Holy Spirit | No Comments

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

 

For many years now, I have been working at having a seeker sensitive church. A church where every true seeker of God will be encouraged to be more sensitive to the Spirit of God.

Eyesalve: Thine Are We

By | Eyesalve, Holy Spirit | No Comments

Then the spirit came upon Amasai, who was chief of the captains, and he said, Thine are we, David, and on thy side, thou son of Jesse: peace, peace be unto thee, and peace be to thine helpers; for thy God helpeth thee. Then David received them, and made them captains of the band.” I Chronicles 12:18

 

Any saint of God who has any spiritual sense, will expect their pastor or spiritual leaders to have God’s anointing. As a pastor I want to say that it works the other way as well. I expect those who I shepherd to have the Spirit come on them and convince them that they are with me. (Of course, only as I follow Christ).

Eyesalve: Truth Recognizes Truth

This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.” I John 5:6

 

The true remnant last day believers will be identified, not by their tenants or statement of faith that their church has in place, nor by a denomination they may belong to, but by the Spirit of truth. Truth recognizes truth.

Eyesalve: His Effect

By | Eyesalve, Holy Spirit | No Comments

And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” Matthew 15:6

 

There are so many new churches starting up who want to throw out all traditions. Traditions aren’t always the problem. The problem is when traditions make the Spirit of God of none effect. The answer to starting a church is not throwing out the traditions it is in letting the Spirit of God have His effect.

Eyesalve: Provide A Temple

By | Eyesalve, Holy Spirit | No Comments

Send me also cedar trees, fir trees, and algum trees, out of Lebanon: for I know that thy servants can skill to cut timber in Lebanon; and, behold, my servants shall be with thy servants, 9Even to prepare me timber in abundance: for the house which I am about to build shall be wonderful great.” II Chronicles 2:8-9

 

With great enthusiasm Solomon determined to build a temple unto God. It took thousands of men, cedar, fir and algum trees and a great amount of gold and other metals. Most, if not all of us could not build such a temple because we have not the money nor the man power. However, there is not one of us that can’t afford to provide a temple for the Holy Spirit. All He requires is you, whether rich or poor, healthy or sick, tall or short and male or female.

Eyesalve: Throw Away The Jawbone

By | Eyesalve, Holy Spirit | No Comments

And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking, that he cast away the jawbone out of his hand, and called that place Ramathlehi.” Jdg. 15:17

 

Samson may not have been the best example of a godly man, but one thing he did that was right is to throw away that jawbone. He recognized that the jawbone was not the implement of his victory, but that it was the Spirit of God who gave him the victory.

Eyesalve: Get a Reaction

By | Eyesalve, Holy Spirit | No Comments

Now as he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, “Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you… Now as he thus made his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, “Paul, you are beside yourself! Much learning is driving you mad!… Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.” Acts 24:25, 26:24,28

 

Paul testified before two governors and one king. He got a reaction out of all three. Felix got scared, Festus told Paul he was a mad man and King Agrippa was almost persuaded to be a Christian. The scriptures do not tell us if any of these men were persuaded to the point that they become a Christian, but one thing is clear, Paul preached with authority and power. We believers don’t save souls, we preach to them. We must preach to get a reaction. Not by irritating people so they finally shout back in anger, but with genuine Holy Ghost authority. You cannot do this unless you are filled with the Spirit. We don’t need evangelism techniques and outreaches, we need believers to be filled with the Spirit.
