The eyesalve is a quick devotional that Pastor Terry Fischer writes regularly to challenge and encourage the saints of God. It is meant to be short and sweet and comes from his daily reading and prayer.

Your Record

By | Evangelism, Eyesalve

The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.” John 12:17


You can be sure that others will bear record of your life. Will that record of you be a testimony of the glorious love and power of God working in your life?

Our Place and Nation

By | Cross, Eyesalve

If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.” John 11:48


We have far too many ministers and Christians who are afraid to speak up for morality in this nation. We must be grateful for those who the Lord has raised up to be a prophetic voice to this nation. We need prophets like John the Baptist, who will speak to those in authority and tell them what they are doing isn’t right before God. Let me go in the other direction by asking you, are you more of a patriot than you are a Christian? Does your Christianity hinge on the continual existence of America maintaining her constitutional rights? If it would come to it that some other power would come and “take away both our place and our nation,” would you still maintain your walk with the Lord? I want to remind you all, we believers belong to a different kingdom. There is no other like it. It is the kingdom of God. That is the kingdom we must promote.

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.

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.

Laying on of Hands

By | Eyesalve, Ministry

And the Levites shall lay their hands upon the heads of the bullocks: and thou shalt offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, unto the LORD, to make an atonement for the Levites.” Numbers 8:12


We should not be so quick to lay hands on others who believe they are called to the ministry until they understand this one thing. The Levites laid their hands on the head of the bullock before they killed it for a sacrifice, so too, when hands are laid upon those who are called to the ministry, they must understand that they are declaring themselves dead to self.

What Crowd?

By | Evangelism, Eyesalve

“And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press (crowd), because he was little of stature.” Luke 19:3


It is generally thought that Zacchaeus could not see Jesus because He was short. However, the problem was that the crowd was in the way. So, are you a part of the crowd, who flocks to Jesus, that hinders others from seeing Jesus, or are you of the crowd that helps others to see Jesus?


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?

Speak of Them

By | Eyesalve, Prayer

Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:” I Peter 4:4


While those who speak evil of us believers who will not run with them, we believers can speak to God about them who will not run with us.

They’re Strange

By | Eyesalve, Remnant

Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:” I Peter 4:4


The world think it is strange that we believers do not run with them. Well, I think it is strange that they don’t run with us. So there.
