Take The Blinders Off

Have the Church’s spiritual eyes grown shut? Have we lost our way? Have we become a modern-day Eli, watching as sin corrupts our world, our country, our city, our churches, our homes, and have done nothing? As a Church, have we allowed the flame that was once strong, was once burning on fire for God, have we allowed that flame to grow dim to almost nothing? Join Rev. Kenny Yates as he reveals today’s Church’s connection to Eli and his two sons in his eye-opening message, Take The Blinders Off.

1 Samuel 3:12-14
1 Samuel 1:9-10,12-18
2 Kings 4:27
Genesis 11:6-7

Take The Blinders Off

Eli was the judge of those days, yet the Word of the LORD was scarce. He didn’t hear from the LORD often because he allowed unrighteousness to reign free in his own household. Eli’s two sons were wicked, yet he did nothing to correct this. This is how the Church is becoming today. We no longer hear from God the way the early Church did because we allow the unrighteousness to dwell with God. We have to take the blinders off and stand for righteousness.

1 Now the boy Samuel was ministering to the Lord in the presence of Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no frequent vision. At that time Eli, whose eyesight had begun to grow dim so that he could not see, was lying down in his own place. The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was.

1 Samuel 3:1-3

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
