Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of December

Dec 13, 2016 by

Verses:

Rev. 3:18 “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire that you may be rich, and white garments that you may be clothed and that the shame of your nakedness may not be manifested, and eyesalve to anoint your eyes that you may see.”

 

Excerpts:

All three things which the Lord counsels the church in Laodicea to buy—gold, white garments, and eyesalve—are just the Lord Himself. Gold signifies two things: God’s divine nature and the living faith by which we appreciate and appropriate the divine nature. Christ is the embodiment of the divine nature, and He is also our living faith. The white garments are Christ as our subjective righteousness, Christ lived out of our being [to] be our second garment for us to be approved by the Lord. The “eyesalve” needed to “anoint” their eyes must refer to the anointing Spirit, who is also the Lord Himself as the life-giving Spirit. We need more Spirit to anoint our eyes and the depths of our inner being that we may have both foresight and deep insight to see things thoroughly.

 

The gold, the garment, and the eyesalve are all Christ. Our need today is Christ. Our intention in these messages is to help the Lord’s people to be enlightened that they might see the value, worth, and preciousness of Christ and, by having this insight, they might be willing to pay any price to gain Him. It is worthwhile for me to pay the cost of my family, my future, my destiny, and my whole life for Christ. If I would pay all this, the price is still too cheap. Paul said that all the things he counted loss for Christ were just dung. In the church life in the Lord’s recovery we are not for doctrine or merely for the so-called truths. We are here for the rich Christ. (Life-study of Revelation, Chap. 16)
