Genesis 13:14 KJV “And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward”
Have you ever been blind? Have you ever experienced it? I lost some sight in my right eye as a child and had to have surgery to correct it. Or maybe deafness? Maybe you have experienced that? I have some hearing loss in my right ear due to my military service. As a result, people will say things and I will hear that they are speaking, but what they say and what I understand are two different things. This comes as a result of nerve damage. This was made worse by my epilepsy. It can be a source of frustration at times to say the least. It can be like a covering that just makes conversation all mixed up and can even lead to misunderstandings and even trial.
I want you to have a look at the above verse. It’s very important. When Abram left Ur and his father, his nephew Lot went with him. Problems soon arose. It says there was no room for both the substance of Lot and Abram. It was too great. Strife began.
The next verses are prophetic. Read them very carefully.
Abram says let there be no strife between us. Do you know what Lot’s name means? It means a veil. Abram asks Lot to leave. You see the veil must go. It carries strife and blindness. In the SPIRIT it causes us to be separated from GOD. The SPIRIT of CHRIST cannot be revealed in us as long as there is a veil blinding us, and putting scales over our eyes.
Now look at verse 10. “And Lot lifted up his eyes(the veil of the FLESH would be lifted on the CROSS), and beheld all the plain of Jordan (CHRIST Saw HIS descending to death as a suffering servant), that it was well watered everywhere (a cup to be drank), before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (SIN and DEATH, burning like the sting of a scorpion-oh death where is your sting and a servant to sin, bound to the LAW to be keep even to the last tittle), even as the garden of the LORD (where all mankind fell with Adam), like the land of Egypt (the World in slavery), as thou comest unto Zoar (would bring everything worldly to insignificance).” And so Lot (the veil) went toward Sodom and Gomorrah (sin and death).
Now what does GOD says to Abram. Now the veil is gone. The way is made and there is no more strife or sin and death. NOW LIFT UP THINE EYES and SEE (HOW I AM REVEALED) the land (CHRIST IN MEN) that I give to you and your descendants for they cannot be numbered for the dust of the earth. GOD told Abram to walk through it, to receive CHRIST into HIS heart. The foot has to do with the tongue and the tongue the heart. CHRIST is the land Abram is receiving. The promised land. He believed and it was counted to him as righteousness!
“And Abram removed his tent (ceased from wandering) and dwelt in Mamre (fatness) in Hebron (Companionship with CHRIST).”
My prayer is that all of you would dwell in the richness that comes from CHRIST within and to rest there each day. There is no other peace you will find on this earth if it does not come from JESUS. All else is vanity. It will be to you a false god that will give no light, keep no promise, bring no lasting joy, and be no friend. There is only CHRIST!
2 Cor 3:14-15 KJV “But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.”
All Glory and Honour is Yours Almighty Father through Your SON, JESUS CHRIST
