SANCTIFY YOU COMPLETELY 6 Protect the Eye Gate to your Soul


Eye Gate Must be Protected


SANCTIFY YOU COMPLETELY 6  Protect the Eye Gate to your Soul

Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.

You are wholly into the scriptures and believe fully into Jesus Christ and everything he stands for but yet you fail to serve him as you know you should. Many of the body of Christ suffer from this malady and fall short. Some do the most outrageous things in spite of their testimony for Him. No one is exempt from such an implosion yet understanding the whys of it can help ward it off for a lifetime.

As the mind interacts with the second feature of the soul, the emotions it is challenged for how we feel can override what is often called “Common sense”. How often we say; “I knew better” but we go head first onto a situation that can cause us and the cause of Christ great damage. We find ourselves being dishonest in circumstances we find ourselves in. Our image of ourselves is being a strong stalwart Christian but end up acting as a heathen would. Our associates are expert in promoting such conduct.

1 Corinthians 15:33  Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character."

This speaks volumes about who we hang out with and in some cases who we try to convert. Unfortunately many have ended by being converted to the ways of those they were trying to convert.

The emotional arena is where the evil powers attack us most and have their greatest success.

Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

These evil spirits have available to them all the resources of the Devil better known as the wiles (devious or cunning stratagems employed in manipulating or persuading someone to do what one wants) of the Devil. Beyond having His power being available to them to attack you they are invisible and unseen which multiplies their effectiveness. They are by nature evil and unclean.

The eyegate is where the unclean has its most effectiveness. This is not to exclude what you hear for it also has its part in the downfall of the Christian. The combining of the two is a mighty force and requires the whole of GOD’S armor for a defense.

Matt.6:22-23 The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23"But if your eye is bad, (what you are focusing on) your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

Luke 8:18 "So pay attention to how you hear. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what they think they understand will be taken away from them."

The Christian lives in a world that is fully conditioned to be compatible with Satan’s agenda and it is charged to bring down all who name the name of Christ as redeemer. They are spiritual by nature and must be resisted on three levels, mentally, emotionally and physically.

How we think, how we feel and how we act.

  2. Focusing on Him when the sinfulness of our world increases [and has], serving for Him and doing whatever He indicates needs to be done to help Him and others, that's all that will work and worship well in here and look forward to worshiping entirely and foreverly in heaven. I can hardly wait! Thank you for sharing.
