Eyesalve: We Are Dead To Sin

By | Eyesalve

God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Romans 6:2


There is a difference between falling into sin once in a while and living in sin. Just as Jesus Himself was tempted, though He never gave into it, we are tempted too. Though we choose to live a life apart from sin, we do at times sin. Thank God for the blood of Jesus which keeps us in right standing while we are working out our salvation. It is the attitude one has toward sin that exposes the real believer from the false. The real believer hates sin and wants to be free of it, while the pretender has not shook loose from the appetite for sin.

Eyesalve: The Spirit is Willing

By | Eyesalve

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41


Though it may require a lot of discipline to get your flesh to pray, be encouraged that the Spirit in you has great desire to pray. As you learn to walk in the Spirit, your desire for prayer will increase.

Eyesalve: Pleasure in Uprightness

By | Eyesalve

I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.” I Chronicles 29:17


We don’t try God, He tries us. He doesn’t try us to get us to buckle under temptation and pressure, He tries us because it is His pleasure and way to bring out the uprightness in our heart.

Eyesalve: Not Mr’s Potiphar (Explain)

By | Eyesalve

“And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. 11And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within. 12And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.” Gen. 39:10-12

Just to expound on the statement I made yesterday about Joseph running from himself. Of course Joseph was running from Potiphar’s wife. Yet every one of us understands that we have that sinful nature that still hangs around. The sinful nature, when confronted by temptation, will give into that temptation if it entertains it and doesn’t flee from it. Every time you have been tempted and you immediately ignored it, denied it, fled from it or asked the Lord to strengthen you, you in a sense have run from it. So the point I was making was Joseph was running from the temptation so he would not give into it.
