Eyesalve: Righteousness Going Before Us

By | Eyesalve, Remnant | No Comments

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.” Isaiah 58:8

 

Wow, is it possible that before we already show up somewhere, that our righteousness can precede us? Let it be so Lord. Let it be that no matter where we go, that no matter who sees us, they already know we are clothed in your righteousness Lord.

Eyesalve: Surely God is in Thee

Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.” Isaiah 45:14

 

This scripture is speaking of something that will happen in the future, more precisely it is during the millennial reign of Christ. In the meantime, since Jesus said “The kingdom of God is within you,” Let’s live such a life in the Spirit that others around us will say, “Surely God is in Thee.”

Eyesalve: Be With God

And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.” I Corinthians 8:2

 

Some people may think they know God because they think about God. In a brief search I did not find a verse in the bible that encourages us to think about God. I know we are to meditate on His word. People may think about God often, but it is better to be with God. I think about my wife the most when I am away from her. When I am with her, I don’t think about her, I enjoy her.

Eyesalve: Those Who Eat the Meat

Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.” John 6:27

 

Who does the Father seal? Those who eat the meat which “endureth unto everlasting life.”

Eyesalve: You Will be Excluded

By | Eyesalve, Remnant | No Comments

Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” (Luke 6:22)

 

Strong faithful believers never have a difficult time staying separate from the world, for the world excludes them from joining them.

Eyesalve: Is God With Them?

Moreover Amaziah gathered Judah together, and made them captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, according to the houses of their fathers, throughout all Judah and Benjamin: and he numbered them from twenty years old and above, and found them three hundred thousand choice men, able to go forth to war, that could handle spear and shield. 6He hired also an hundred thousand mighty men of valour out of Israel for an hundred talents of silver. 7But there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with thee; for the LORD is not with Israel, to wit, with all the children of Ephraim.” II Chronicles 25:5-7

 

Before we are quick to involve some believers in ministries, we should make sure that God is with them.

Eyesalve: Lead The Rebuilding

By | Eyesalve, Remnant | No Comments

That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.” Nehemiah 1:2-3

 

Today is not much different than the days of Nehemiah. I hear reports all the time, not about Jerusalem, but about the church and the desperate state many are in. They may be doing well financially (rich and in need of nothing), but they are spiritually broken down. However, there is a remnant in the midst of this, you may be one of them, who will not be afflicted by this. Some will have to “come out from amongst her.” Some will be rejected by her. These remnant will be the Nehemiahs for our generation who lead the rebuilding of the wall and gates.

Eyesalve: Are You One of Them?

And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision. 2And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see; 3And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep; 4That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.” I Samuel 3:1-4

 

Even when it seems there is no desire for God anywhere; even if it seems all of society has turned from God; even when it seems that the lamp of God has grown dim and gone out in much of the church today; God will still call the names of those who will listen and obey His voice. God still has a people for Himself. Are you one of them?

Eyesalve: Departure

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” Matthew 25:7-10

 

While seeking the Lord this morning I was letting Him know I was discouraged over the state of the church. I had over the last two days read some statistics that are alarming on what Christians believe today. There is a great departure from truth and an accepting of many things that are evil. Now I have been believing for over a decade that there will be a distinction coming to the church. There will be a separation between the holy and unholy, the just and the unjust, but I always felt that it was going to be the true separating from the false. I determined that the true church would rise up in authority and power and make that clear distinction. However, a different thought came to me while talking with the Lord this morning. He reminded me that it was the foolish virgins who left. As the wise virgins set their heart and mind to go meet the bridegroom, the foolish virgins had to run off and buy, they had to go back and do some trading. As I continued to meditate on what the Lord was speaking to me He spoke to me again. He was not saying that the church would not flow with His Holy Spirit power, but He did point out that once you believe the truth there is nothing higher to believe. For those who resist the truth, there are thousands of different ways they can go. SO CHURCH, STAY ON THE NARROW WAY. FIX YOUR EYES ON THE BRIDEGROOM. LOOK UP FOR YOUR REDEMTION DRAWETH NIGH.
