The Resurrection Must Be Preached

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ

“Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Acts 2:24, 32

 

Twice in Peter’s less than three minute sermon, he mentioned the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is a theme that has been forgotten today by some of those who share the gospel with the lost. I believe I could say, if the resurrection is not preached, then the gospel is not being preached.

Know the One it Came From

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ

But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.” Numbers 11:6

 

What do they mean, “there is nothing at all?” It says that this manna was before their eyes. I guess their eyes were so dull they couldn’t really see what they had before them. It is because they only saw and ate the manna, but never wanted to see and know the One it came from.

Christ’s Body Will Be Seen

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” I Corinthians 12:27

 

We believers are the body of Christ whenever we meet. When we assemble, being all fleshy and worldly, the world will be exposed to a heavy dose of us. But if we meet in the fruit and power of the Spirit, then it is Christ’s BODY that will be seen.

Be Particular

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” I Corinthians 12:27

 

Have you ever heard anyone say to you, “Don’t be so particular?” Well if anyone says that to you, ignore it. Go ahead and be particular. Find that particular place in the body of Christ.

Membership

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” I Corinthians 12:27

 

You aren’t a member of the body of Christ because you filled out a membership form and it was voted on by a panel and accepted. You don’t automatically become a member under a family membership plan. You have to be born again to be a member. The instant you are born again you become a member. You are born a member.

After They Eat

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ

And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna (What is it?) for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.” Exodus 16:15

 

Most other Bible versions ask, “What is it?” where the KJV says, “It is manna.” The word manna means whatness. After they ate the manna, they knew it was bread for them. They no longer had to ask, “What is it?” Though most people know Jesus by name, it isn’t until they are ready to eat of His body that they will no longer have to ask, “Who is He?”
