TOPIC: Mind Your Eye Gate (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries Thursday, 20 September 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Genesis 30:37-43
MEMORY VERSE: “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” – Matthew 6:22
Our Fire Scripture today tells us how Jacob enriched himself from Laban’s flock through the principle of image capturing by the eyes of the animals. This principle is often used by satan to destroy the destiny of God’s people. He manipulated Eve to cause man to lose his inheritance. Genesis 3:6 records that “when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes… She took, ate, and gave also unto her husband”. It was the eye that got Ham into trouble whereas Shem and Japheth saw no reason why they should behold their father’s nakedness (Genesis 10:22-23). Joseph found grace in the sight of Potiphar, but the eyes of Potiphar’s wife landed him in prison. What shall we say about the load of affliction that confronted David and his family from the time he saw the nakedness of Uriah’s wife, the woman that was very beautiful to look upon. In the third temptation of Jesus, which satan might have considered to be the “joker”, he showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and their glory before demanding worship with a promise (Matthew 4:8-9).
This is the same principle used by Jacob when he designed a rod and used it to achieve a desired purpose. The devil also puts many lustful images, icons and pictures for humans to see, conceive and be consumed by what their eyes have beheld. The heart and mind can be captured through the eyes. Many are slaves to all kinds of sinful habits: pornography, adultery, fornication, idolatry, hatred, pride, greed, envy, wrath, strife, covetousness, theft, murder, drunkenness, gluttony, among others, because of the wrong use of the eyes. Believer’s bodies are God’s temple, which must be kept pure and holy continually. In all humbleness of mind and watchfulness, we must focus on Jesus at all times: seek to please God in your secret chamber and in the open, knowing that nothing can be hidden from His eyes. He promised to supply your needs, so mind the use of your eyes.
THE HUMAN HEART AND MIND CAN BE CAPTURED THROUGH THE AGENCY OF THE EYES.
Divine anointing to overcome temptation shall fall upon your eyes.
