Revelation 3:18

 

18 I counsel [sumbouleuo] thee [soi] to buy [agorazo] of [para] me [emou] gold [chrusion] tried [puroo] in [ek] the fire, [pur] that [hina] thou mayest be rich; [plouteo] and [kai] white [leukos] raiment, [himation] that [hina] thou mayest be clothed, [periballo] and [kai] that the shame [aischune] of thy [sou] nakedness [gumnotes] do [phaneroo] not [me] appear; [phaneroo] and [kai] anoint [egchrio] thine [sou] eyes [ophthalmos] with eyesalve, [kollourion] that [hina] thou mayest
see.
[blepo]    KJV-Interlinear

18 I advise you to buy from Me
gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you
may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed;
and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.    NASB

 

 

 




 


 

Revelation 3:18

 

 

 

Several times the Bible will make the statement, ‘Behold,’
in order to get your attention. And here
Christ gives us all a strong suggestion, that we pay attention, listen to, and
take His advice.

Your life will continue on forever.  Your life is not going to continue in this
world as it is now, but in the next life. You are here of the sole purpose of
preparing yourself for that next life.

Why do children go to school?  So that they can get prepared for their life
when they leave their parents home and start a new life for themselves.

And that is the same here.  You are in school in this life.  But more than learning doctrine, you are making
an investment now, that you will redeem in the future
in the next life.

And your investment consists of the details,
structure and use of Bible doctrine.
Doctrine builds wealth in your soul now, which will transform into real
wealth in the future.

Doctrine in the soul is gold in your life.  White clothing represents the purity of a
functional spiritual life, living in fellowship through confession, and your
nakedness is a reference to the sin nature within you.

If you confess regularly and live your day to day
life in fellowship, then your sin nature is in effect hidden from view.  It is still there, but it does not function
when you are in fellowship.

Learning doctrine and using it, means
you are enriching your life through the structure of doctrine building up
within your soul. However, the salve for
your eyes is an expression for your wanting to learn and understand doctrine in
the first place. If you do not have the
right attitude, the right desire, and follow the right procedure for learning
spiritual information, then your spiritual life will not advance.

Without a genuine desire to learn, you will never
be able to comprehend the truth of life, nor be able to prepare yourself for
the next life, which is certain to come.

This life has many uncertainties and
limitations. The next life is certain
and has virtually no limitations, if you are prepared.

You use preparation techniques for this life, which
do not guarantee you anything in this life, but why not use the preparation
techniques for the next life, which guarantee you a phenomenal life and success
in the next life?

 

 

 




 

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
