Eyesalve: An Unclean Place

By | Eyesalve

“Now if the plague comes back and breaks out in the house, after he has taken away the stones, after he has scraped the house, and after it is plastered, 44then the priest shall come and look; and indeed if the plague has spread in the house, it is an active leprosy in the house. It is unclean. 45And he shall break down the house, its stones, its timber, and all the plaster of the house, and he shall carry them outside the city to an unclean place. 46Moreover he who goes into the house at all while it is shut up shall be unclean until evening.” Lev. 14:43-46


If the Spirit of God does His work to purge any particular church of her carnal ways, but that church persists in her ways, it is no different than being infected with leprosy. Just as a house that has walls infected with leprosy has to be destroyed, so must the church that has spiritual leprosy. I am not talking about destroying the church building, I am talking about bringing an end to the gathering of those saints. When rebellious carnal people meet it infects those who enter and does more to make them unclean than clean.

Eyesalve: Joy is Strength (#2)

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Neh. 8:10

Some Christians are taught that it is unholy or carnal or at least immature to express emotion in church. However, that is the ingredients to a weak church. Consider also that Romans 14:17 teaches us that the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and JOY in the Holy Ghost. So I guess I can say if the Spirit of God is truly present in our meetings, then it is very normal for joy to be expressed. People that rejoice in Christ are a strong people.

Eyesalve: Tree Huggers

By | Eyesalve

“And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.” Mt. 21:19-21

Jesus said that if we have faith we too could curse the fig tree and it would wither. Why would I want to curse a fig tree anyway? When you consider the fig tree represents Israel, which is a type of church, and the lack of figs signifies a lack of fruit, then we can understand that we can and should curse unfruitful religion. No loving Christian wants to curse anyone or anything, but considering the carnal state of much of the church, it seems few have risen up in our generation to curse the unfruitful religion we have. In fact it seems we may have more tree huggers than cursers.
