Eyesalve: He Humbled Himself

By | Eyesalve

“Whereupon the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, The LORD is righteous. 7And when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak… 12And when he humbled himself, the wrath of the LORD turned from him, that he would not destroy him altogether: and also in Judah things went well.” II Chron. 12:6-7

I am sure every sincere Christian wants to do great things for God. King Rehoboam doesn’t have a record of doing anything great, but he did protect Jerusalem from the enemy. He didn’t do it by military strength, He didn’t do it by round table discussions. He did it by humbling himself. It could be that some of the greatest things we will ever do for the kingdom of God is humble ourselves.

Eyesalve: City of Truth?

By | Eyesalve

“Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.” Zech 8:3

The politicians here in America have lost the ability to tell the truth. I know that is a major frustration to many of us. Zechariah tells us what is going to make Jerusalem to be called the city of truth, is when the LORD returns to that city and dwells among the people. The only way any city or nation can be called a city or nation of truth is when the Lord is there dwelling among the people. America has rejected God and therefore has no ability to be a truthful nation. Pray that Americans repent and turn back to God, and that truth will go marching on.
