Open Our Eyes Lord

          In reality, there seem to be areas, that we cannot see with the natural  eye. There is another dimension of sight available, but it has to be spiritually  initiated by the Lord. This insight is apparently only given when there is a time of need.

         This presidential election season has brought out the worst in many of us. What we must keep in mind is that no matter how hard we work to elect the person we think would be the best, we have to realize that there is a higher office who decides whom He wants to be in power. A member of the RNC recently said, essentially, that the people think they pick the candidate, while in reality the RNC decides who will be the candidate. The absolute truth is that God has the final decision. The Bible tells us that no one can come to power, but that God allows it. Many of us Bible believers, believe that because of the degradation and sin of our nation, at least most of our recent presidents were elected as punishment for our lack of morality. God will not be mocked. He gave us the most powerful and wealthiest nation in the world. We, in turn, have ushered Him out of our lifestyle. In order to save our nation we need to humble ourselves, get on our knees and beg God for His forgiveness. If we fail to do that, He will see to it that we are humbled in an involuntary manner. If we get to the point where He thinks we are worth it, He will return our nation to the protections and blessings we used to have. At this point, I see no one, who looks like they may be the candidate in either party, that I could, in all good conscience vote for. I cannot vote for Donald Trump because he, for political advantage, claimed to be a Christian. He does not qualify (as far as I can tell) as a Biblical Christian. Therefore I have to believe his claim is simply a political lie, for profit, that disrespects my Lord.  I have stated in the past that I would never vote for someone who has done that. Hillary Clinton has provably lived a corrupt life. I have seen no reason to believe she will ever change. Unless the situation changes, the presidential selection on my ballot will remain empty. I know that there are those who say, that if I don't vote at all, that will be a vote for Hillary; however, I consider my position to be moral instead of political. If another viable candidate emerges, in place of Trump, I will be off the hook. If Trump or Hillary are our punishment from God, so be it.  Open our eyes Lord, so that we can see.

Open his eyes Lord

          In Numbers 22:31,the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

          In 2 Kings 6:17, Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

          "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"  Matthew 6:22-23

          Why don't all people understand and recognize the truth of the Bible? There are some who have never heard about the Bible.  There are those who have heard the truth, but for some reason they reject it. there are those who don't hear the truth with an open heart. It does take a bit of faith, to understand that the Word of God is really from God. You have to see the scriptures through the eyes of biblical faith, known as the power of the Holy Spirit, in order to understand them. I hate to put it that way, because the Islamists say that if you don't read the Koran, in the original language in which it was written, you can't understand it. This is a perversion of the biblical truth about biblical understanding; written 600 years after Jesus. 1st.Corinthians 3:1-3 tells us: "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?"  Open our eyes Lord.

          The Bible is the most researched, the most scrutinized and the most documented book in the history of the world. Much of this research was conducted in efforts to discredit the Bible. It is better corroborated and confirmed than the history books you were taught from, the math books you studied and the grammar books your teachers used.

Some examples of biblical proof -
1. Archaeologists have discovered remains of the Egyptian army, at the Red Sea, from the biblical exodus.[1]
2. Geneticist says evidence confirms historical Adam and Eve.[2]
3. Genetics expert confirms the reality of Adam and Eve.[3]
3. Giants in the Bible - Archaeologists have unearthed ancient gates in a biblical town believed to be the home of Goliath. [4]
5. Archaeologists believe remains of Sodom's fiery destruction have been found.[5]
If the stories, in the Bible are all just fables, why are so many scientists trying to find "natural" explanations for them? Open their eyes Lord.

          Adam and Eve had perfect sets of DNA, and nobody knows what color they were. They had, as reported by Josephus, 56 children.  These children were born with their own sets of DNA, which were the combined DNA of their parents.  As we know, not all of our children look the same. If you have 10 children, with the exception of twins, all of our children will look differently.  Many times our children will have a variety of skin coloring. All of mankind are shades of the same color, starting with Adam and Eves children.  Please Lord, open our eyes.

          Everyone is entitled to believe, or not believe, whatever they wish. However, this supposes they have researched the consequences, and accept them. If you walk in the truth, the truth will set you free. If you ignore history, you are destined to repeat it. "His Story" is the instruction manual for mankind. Open our eyes, to your Word Lord.
