1Samuel 11:2 “And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, On this condition will I make a covenant with you, that I may thrust out all your right eyes, and lay it for a reproach upon all Israel.”
Other reasons the devil uses to terminate people’s vision also includes:
- IGNORANCE: The devil blindfolds people, making major things look minor and vice versa. The devil normally magnifies unimportant things to us while he takes away or relegates the important ones to the background. He successfully used this against Esau. He told him his stomach was more important than the birthright. Esau was ignorant of the true worth of the birthright.
- WORLDLY THINGS: The love of the things of the world is another tool the enemy uses to terminate the vision of a man. A typical example in the Bible is the man Demas. Hear this:
Philemon 1:24 “…Demas…my fellowlabourers.”
Paul introduced this man to us as a fellow-labourer. They went preaching together; following Christ, teaching nations and turning men to God. Demas was in destiny doing well but derailed somewhere along the line:
2Timothy 4:10 “For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica…”
Demas became carried away with the affairs of this world and his right eye was removed. Don’t fall to this tool of the enemy.
- WRONG ASSOCIATION: The devil also uses this to great effect. Once he sees a man with the right vision. He cunningly introduces him to a wrong person or introduces a wrong person into his life. A typical example are the four hundred prophets of Baal.
1Kings 18:19 “Now therefore send and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.”
Those prophet were not originally prophets of Baal. Jezebel invited them to dinner and once they started eating at her table, the enemy removed their right eyes and eventually killed them all.
Beloved, know and defend your vision. Don’t ever agree to submit your right eye. It is your weapon of dominion on this planet and an extension of the operations of God on earth.
