Have Your Eyes Grown Dim?

12 On that day I will fulfill against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from beginning to end. 13 And I declare to him that I am about to punish his house forever, for the iniquity that he knew, because his sons were blaspheming God, and he did not restrain them. 14 Therefore I swear to the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be atoned for by sacrifice or offering forever. ~ 1 Samuel 3:12-14

I believe Eli’s spiritual eyes began to grow dim when he started turning a blind eye to what his sons were doing. You can’t keep your hands from getting dirty while playing with pigs. What I mean is, you have to be very careful who you align yourself with. The things they stand for and support will become the things you stand for and support. Therefore, if you strongly support a political candidate, celebrity, musician, etc., you better make sure their views are your views. You cannot stoke the fire and not smell like smoke.

Although Eli was watching her, he had become so comfortable and so spiritually blind that he no longer had the spiritual discernment to see Hannah was distressed in her spirit. Today’s churches no longer have spiritual discernment. Why? Because they are too caught up in the political/social agenda, without even realizing that it is designed to divide and conquer. They divide us on race, politics, religion, and on every aspect of life that they can. We no longer fight for unity. What would happen if the Church put aside all their differences and got together as one body, just like the bread is one loaf, and pray. The book of Genesis tells us that God Himself said that it’s impossible to stop a united people.

God was not pleased with Eli, and He brought judgment down on Eli and his sons. God said that judgment will start at His house, with His people. We better get our act together and start seeking God. We better start calling sin, sin and stop playing around with those who want to kick God out of our country and our government. We better stop promoting the political correctness agenda and start promoting God’s agenda.

LORD, open our eyes that we may have discernment. Awaken our sleeping spirit that we may never choose the world over You. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit that He may guide us as we run the race set before us. Give us strength to make a stand for righteousness. In the name of Jesus, I pray, amen.
