The Eye Is The Light of The Body

Article#: 672

God is the source of all truth and truth is not casually attained. Truth must be purchased with eternal currency. That currency is demonstrated by the diligent search of a soul surrendered unto the beauty of God's holy revelation.

The mighty Christ said in Luke, Chapter 11, Verses 9-10:

9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

And in Proverbs, Chapter 23, Verse 23, it reads:

Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

Truth is purchased with eternal currency.

GOD SAID in Matthew, Chapter 6, Verses 22-23:

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

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!

The light of the body is the eye.

MAN SAID God is a figment of his own imagination. The ten thousand times ten thousand marvels of creation simply evolved from nothing which nobody created.

Now THE RECORD.

The eye is a wonder of God's creation. Medical science has learned many marvelous things about the eye but be sure that science has only scratched the surface of its marvels. The Bible says an eye can be evil against the poor (Deuteronomy 15:9). One can have an evil eye and Proverbs, Chapter 23, Verses 6-8, declares:

6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:

7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

8 The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

Psalms, Chapter 6, Verse 7 says the eye can be consumed because of grief, Deuteronomy, Chapter 13, Verse 8 says it can have pity and Proverbs, Chapter 22, Verse 9 says there is something known as a bountiful eye. God's Word speaks about the apple of thine eye in Proverbs, Chapter 7, Verse 2:

Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

God's word is to be the apple of mine eye and the meaning of apple in this respect is "champion," "good," "great," "mighty," "worthy," etc. An eye can mock (Proverbs 30:17), it can affect the heart (Lamentations 3:51) and the list goes on impressively.

One particular attribute of the eye that this article is focusing on is the verse read earlier, Matthew, Chapter 6, Verses 22-23;

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

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!

Many, many centuries before medical science began to understand the concept, God said, "The light of the body is the eye." The eye is the only place in the body where veins, arteries and even the optic nerve can be viewed. The eye doctor can actually look into your eye and view the very back of your eyeball. It's astounding that the light that enters the eye is processed by the eye and via the optic nerve is distributed to the brain and ultimately the entire body.

The Gospel of Luke, Chapter 11, Verse 34 also speaks on the subject of the eye:

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

Jesus speaking spiritually and physically says the light of the body is certainly the eye. It showcases to us the world around us and also reveals in a plethora of ways the inward condition of the body. Through the examination of the eye the doctor can detect over 200 diseases in the human body. God of course is correct...the eye is the light of the body.

GOD SAID the light of the body is the eye.

MAN SAID God is a figment of his own imagination. The ten thousand times ten thousand marvels of creation simply evolved from nothing which nobody created.

Now you have THE RECORD.
