In this sermon, we are going to answer the question, what does the bible say about the eyes of God.It’s so unfortunate how we human beings on earth fail to realize that the physical proof of what we see are the reflections of what transpires with God
If you’ve ever been in a car or house that has a tinted glass; you will discover that, you will see people outside and what they are doing; but they will not be able to see you and what you are doing.
Now imagine God inside the tinted glass, overlooking us and everything we do; but we on the other hand cannot see him.
We also have a surveillance camera, which is secretly mounted; and then connected to a viewable source where someone who monitors can watch whatever those tracked by the camera are doing without their fore-knowledge.
Now imagine God viewing what men are doing without their knowledge, by means of the surveillance camera.
This two mysteries explains what happens between us and God. And from thence let’s go to the bible and see what the bible says about the eyes of God.
What the bible says about the eyes of God.
Eventhough the bible has said literally so much about the eyes of God, in this sermon however; we will be more concerned on these two things that the bible says about the eyes of God and they are:
- The bible says that the eyes of God are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and good human beings are doing – Proverbs 15:3.
- The bible also says that since God is the one who formed the eye, how can we humans think that He does not see – Psalm 94: 9b.
So whatever it is we do when nobody is around; whether good or bad; we must always be conscious of the fact that there is a man behind the tinted glass who is keeping a watch on all our actions.
And if in doubt, you must first realize that the eyes that you have were given to you by the One Who created you; and for that reason, He has an all-seeing eyes.
Why people practice evil in the dark.
People practice their evil acts in the dark because they think that there is no one who sees them. But the scripture places a curse on them as we see from the scriptures below.
Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD, And their works are in the dark; They say “who sees us?” and, “who knows us?”Isaiah 29: 15
“For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. “But he does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.John 3: 20-21.
How God brings the evil of men to the open.
We must therefore understand that since God sees all we do; He has promised to bring them all to the open for every other people to see.
The greatest example of how what is done in secret is brought to the open are us human beings.
While in the process of our pro-creation, our parents closes the door; at times with the lights on and at times with the lights off and practice an act that gives rise to the pro-creation.
Finally our mother becomes pregnant and people start to see her tommy bulging everyday until she delivers us for the world to finally behold what she and our father did in the dark.
“Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.Mathew 10:26
Example of how God brings the evil men do in the dark to the light.
After David killed Uriah and took his wife, God placed a curse on him, and I want you to please note what He said after pronouncing the curse.
Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.” ‘thus says the Lord: ‘behold I will raise up adversity against you from your own house, and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. ‘for you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.’”2 Samuel 12: 10-12.
Now Jesus told us:
“I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”(John 8:12
So we that believe in Jesus are the children of light, and we are expected to shun every works of darkness, but rather expose them.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.(Ephesians 5: 11-14)
