“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23)
The eyes give our body a way to see things around us. The way you look at things show who you are and what you have inside of you. Our eyes are connected to our heart. The heart dictates what you see! The spirit inside of you “lights” and shows you things with the “light’ that is inside of you. Christ is saying that if the way you look is evil – then your entire body is evil. “If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”
Today everything in the world has a price, from our birth to our death everything has a value. Even the Word of God has been twisted and manipulated for profit. The True Word that was given to bring Life and reveal the true purpose of a person – completely disregarded because it brings no profit in this world. But the Word of God is immensely profitable in the Heavenly. God made us to be built into one structure, to be part of the New Jerusalem, to be placed in it as PRECIOUS stones. Only as partakers of God’s will can we truly profit, in love, joy, peace, righteousness, holiness… profit that cannot be labeled with a dollar sign. The profit of Eternal Life.
“You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood…” 1Peter 2:5
“No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.” (Matthew 9:16-17 KJV)
This was Christ’s answer to a question that was asked towards Him, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?” (Matthew 9:14) The question was really about why don’t you do things the old way. Christ’s answer showed that this is a new way of life and you cannot mix the old and the new. If you try to understand and comprehend what Christ is teaching by using the old ways, by the teachings of the old (whether to fast or not, whether to eat or not eat, whether to wash hands or not, etc.) – you will ruin yourselves. You cannot patch what you used to do with the new! Patch-work of the old with the new creates an even bigger problem, because it will end up in complete shipwreck and destruction! It’s important to completely get rid of the old and only learn the new!
You lived your life, you walked your path…
You see your way is right and straight…
What do you have? Is Christ your life?
Is your heart pure? Are you sin free?
Reject yourself and take your cross
Deny your knowledge, deny your soul
To follow Christ shall lose your life
Accept His death and accept His Life!
We have received the Spirit of God Himself, the Spirit of love. Love does not place itself above others, is long suffering, meek, kind, love does not judge. God does not judge. God has removed all guilt. If there is judgement, there’s no way you are going to figure anything out. This judgement is from the law.
The devil’s greatest success is in the fact that he is able to hide himself so well that no one can find him. And how can you battle with the enemy if you don’t know his location? Even though Christ said: “You are of your father the devil” and “out of the heart come evil thoughts…” and “death spread to all men…” in other words, the bible gives a clear indication that the devil is inside the person, in the person’s heart! But people still don’t want to believe this. The only thing that they agree to is that the body is sinful; but what exactly is sinful? Is it the blood that became sinful? Or what became sinful? Isn’t the body sinful because the master of the body (i.e. the one who lives in the body) is sinful? Because sin is a spiritual phenomenon! And this is where confusion occurs. People can’t imagine that devil lives in the heart, because the person after all remains an intelligent being, who is compassionate, able to love, can be sympathetic and merciful. All of this is in the soul, it is from the good word that has always sounded and continues to sound in this world. But the fact that in the spirit a person is struck by death, and that the spirit of the person becomes one with the devil, remains a mystery. And this is the law of sin and death.
