Can’t Shut Up

By | Eyesalve, Revival

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? 30Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.” Jeremiah 23:29-30

 

The word is like a fire, but the fire needs to burn so hot that it comes out of a man. It needs to burn so hot that a man cannot contain it. It needs to burn so hot that the bones can no longer keep it shut up. It makes it so you can’t shut up.

Our Champion Lives

By | Eyesalve, Revival

Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.” I Samuel  17:51

 

All the champions the devil ever had are dead. All the champions he has now will die. Our Champion lives and He will live forever.

Shout in Confidence

By | Eyesalve, Revival

And David rose up early in the morning, and left the sheep with a keeper, and took, and went, as Jesse had commanded him; and he came to the trench, as the host was going forth to the fight, and shouted for the battle.” I Samuel 17:20

 

What are they shouting about? Did they forget that all the Philistines have to do is send their champion down and it will send them all running again. Talk is cheap. All kinds of shouting means nothing if you have no courage and confidence in the Lord. I’m not against a little shouting in the preaching and some enthusiasm in our singing, but let it be from those who have confidence in the Lord.

Jesus is Our Champion

By | Eyesalve, Revival

And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.” I Samuel 17:4

 

If Jesus Christ is your Champion, then you will never fear the devils champion.

Let God’s Presence Return

By | Eyesalve, Revival

But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof. 7And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god.” I Samuel 5:6-7

 

The ark of God represents the presence of God. Israel lost the presence of God when the Philistines captured the ark of God. Just like today, the presence of God is gone from many of our churches. However, that does not mean that God is not at work. He dealt with those Philistines while they had possession of the ark. God was still at work revealing Himself to the lost. Let’s pray that the presence of the Lord will return to our churches so God can use us to reveal Himself to the world.

A Witness of the Resurrection

By | Revival

“Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.” Acts 1:22

 

One of the requirements for the man picked to replace Judas was that he had to be a witness of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is still the same today. Though we may have not seen His physical body, we cannot be effective witnesses for the Lord unless we have seen His resurrection through our own experience with resurrection power. Without the power encounter of the new birth, there is no resurrection life. If there is no resurrection life then there is no resurrection to be seen.

It Affected Other Graves

By | Eyesalve, Revival

“And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Matthew 27:52-53

 

Jesus’ being raised from the dead had so much power that it affected other graves around the area.

More Than Conquerors

By | Eyesalve, Revival

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:37

 

Christians, through Christ, can conquer and overcome any and everything in this life. The word goes on to tell us that we are even more than conquerors. So let me ask, “Are you just a sinner saved by grace, or are you more than a conqueror?”

God Recruits

By | Eyesalve, Revival

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” I Timothy 6:12

 

God doesn’t draft people, He recruits them. He offers them the opportunity to come and be a soldier in His kingdom. He doesn’t make anyone be a soldier, but He does expect anyone who does enlist to be a good one.

Why?

By | Eyesalve, Revival

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.” Psalm 1:1

 

Why would any of us walk in the counsel of the ungodly when we can walk in the Spirit? Why would any of us stand in the path of sinners when we can in liberty? Why would any of us sit in the seat of the scornful when we can be seated in heavenly places?
