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.

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?”

Turn it Down

By | Eyesalve, Sanctification

And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he hath heard your murmurings.” Exodus 16:9


I don’t know about you, but I think I would turn down that offer to go near to the Lord because He heard my murmurings.

Faith Drives You On

By | Eyesalve, Faith

“And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. 5When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.” Mark 2:4-5


One of the ear marks of faith is that it drives you on. If these men doubted they would not have gone through all the effort they did to get to Jesus. God allows obstacles in our life to test our faith, to see if we will continue to pursue Him or if we will find it to be too much trouble to uncover the roof to get to Jesus.

Believe That Again

By | Eyesalve, Remnant

When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.” Exodus 7:9


Why would Pharaoh challenge Moses to show him a miracle? I believe it is because he is assuming that if Moses’s God is really a God then He will be able to do miracles. Now, if we can just get the church to believe that again.

To Whom

By | Eyesalve, Sanctification

“But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” Acts 6:4


It is one thing to do things, it is another to give yourself over to them. It is one thing to make a commitment to someone, it is another thing to give yourself over to him. To whom and what have you given yourself to?

May Be a Different Place

By | Eyesalve, Faith

And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:” Genesis 46:3


God clearly told Jacob (Israel) to go down to Egypt. Four hundred and some years later God rebuked Israel for wanting to go back to Egypt. Where God led you years ago may not be where He wants you to be today. Where God may lead you today may not be the place he wants you to be at tomorrow.

Perfect Timing

By | Eyesalve, Faith

And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.” Genesis 41:1


When you bake something in an oven and remove it too soon, it will not be done. If you leave it in too long, it will burn. It was the Lord who determined that two full years were to pass for Joseph before He would bring him out of prison. God didn’t want to bring Joseph out of prison before he was fully done. God has precise and perfect timing over all of our lives.
