If Thy Eye Be Single

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light (Matt 6:22). This is top shelf teaching. Its profoundness goes far beyond appearances, emotions and external stuff in which we often get caught up. The eye pertains to inner consciousness, because everything is inner consciousness. Let me exemplify: Paul says that a Christian can build with hay and stubble, but how can that be if he is taken over completely by God? They are One! That person isn’t less one with God than those who build with gold, silver and precious stones. It is that person’s inner eye, inner consciousness, which determines the quality of the work. Seeing separation, i.e., self-effort and self-improvement, means building with things that are consumed when tested with fire. The converse is equally true!!

If the only thing we see is Oneness, our eye is single, we are full of light and see things the way God sees them. James is a “top man” as Norman Grubb put it. He writes from a settled union perspective and thus when He writes in 1:13 that God cannot be tempted with evil the Spirit’s intention is to make it abundantly clear that God cannot see “double”.  His single and only outlook is Oneness! Hence Jesus continues in Matt 6:23: “But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!” Genuine liberty and freedom of being is encapsulated in Matt 6:22 and it is towards this place the Spirit patiently is pulling each and every one of us in our inner consciousness. It is God’s own faith that wells up in us telling us that we are One, and from His perspective we already are placed in 6:22, so let us agree with God and receive what He has already given us.

    Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
    May we have nothing that draws us because we only see with a single eye.

    Yes, if one is totally sold out on Jesus, he operates from a more enlightened basis and the world always benefits frrom his actions.

  4. King David Mcphe says:

    An enlightened soul who sees with singleness of purpose,is some one “who’s eye is single”

    “You never enjoy the world aright,
    til the sea itself floweth in your veins;
    til you are clothed with the heavens
    and crowned with the stars”

    May YHWH bless you and keep you,
    and make His Face to shine upon you,
    and reveal Himself within you.

    This is His blessing to you.
    Drink, and be filled with His Light,
    that your eye may be single,
    with His Word as your frontlet.

  7. We must still fulfill all righteousness. God’s point of view must become ours.

    Briefly 34 years ago the Lord took me into the spirit through a vision. and I saw a bounty of unexplainable things. Imagine Objects as the the Father. All the laws in those objects , as the Son and its movement the Holy Spirit. Missing any one of these three nothing would exists this is the nature and beauty of the Trinity. By the holy spirit through Jesus I saw Heaven. I was in the universe in no one place but in all places at once but was taken there when I died on the bed out through that empty space deep inside my heart. Imagine this . you look up into the night sky at night and see stars and darkness round about them. we conclude therefore that Gods creation the universe looks like this but this is not so the darkness we see from our fixed point from earth is an illusion. Pick out one star and imagine you could travel in no time around it and imagine that beam of light following you . You would see a ring in your minds eye. Offset your imaginary journey a few times remembering that light and you will see a halo now traverse in every possible position in every direction around that star remembering that light following you and you would see nothing but light the darkness would vanish . Are you with me ?. Imagine you could do this for every star in the universe at once and you will end up with the same result . Nothing but Light. Behold the universe from Gods point of view is like being inside a lit room, there is no darkness in Heaven there are no shadows. Thine eye is single ! The Lord showed me so many marvelous things like this but for now this will do on this subject.. I can tell you that there is an edge to the universe, to heaven where there are no stars after God rested but that to into the nothingness is light. I knew everything that could be known in an instant where there was no time or distance. in the Spirit. As an extra treat ending on a light hearted note I can tell you that Angels have no wings nor are they male or female you can see through them as if transparent but both Satans and Gods angels are white as snow and even in the spirit you cant tell them apart. They’re hair is shoulder length and theyr’e gowns drap to an inch above theyre feet and believe it or not they wear shoes.
