much to be seen today. Many people are walking around with their eyes closed.
Acts 28:27 (NKJV)
For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed,
Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.”
Our vision seems to be blocked. Something is blocking it. We need to open our eyes.
Keep Eyes Wide Open
Some people need an eye operation. They have cataracts and the lense is cloudy. Some need a corneal
transplant. Today, many people need a SPIRITUAL eye operation.
> How do we see clearly?
The spiritual team needs to be able to see clearly. You need to look unto Jesus to see clearly.
Jesus sees the world differently.
> Do you want to see God?
It is impossible to see God with our physical eyes. We MUST use our spiritual eyes. We have to
be PURE in heart. Remove the lusts from the eyes and see God.
This is one of God’s names. EL ROI = means ‘the God who sees'
> Do you want God to close His eyes on your situation?
No, we want God to see! He knows my needs and understands what is going on. Many ask if God
really knows what is going on in our lives. In Genesis, God said to Hagar, ‘I have not forgotten you…”
In Psalm 139:7 (NKJV) it says, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?”
He will come to you in your need. He is omnipresent. God asks us to look at the needs in this world. We may
need to serve others because God does NOT FORGET our needs. We need to seek ways to help others.
God asks us to look forward to His return! Look to the eastern sky… much sooner than you think.
Keep Arms Wide Open
> What is the message of open arms?
We are friendly.
> How much did Christ love us?
Our relationship to others…
Love the sinner, but not the sinner.
Be a doer; not just a hearer.
In Ephesians 4:28 it says, “Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his
hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.” We need to help others
that are in need. We can visit the sick or send them a card.
