Blind Believers - By brother Terrill PriceA born again Christian (Believer) can be Blind???
According to the Holy Scriptures, the answer is Yes. For those that watched my teaching last night on Receiving with meekness the engrafted word (on my YouTube channel), you were shown the importance of Receiving the Holy Scripture (King James Bible) in Your Walk for Good Service unto Our Lord Jesus Christ. For any Christian to have excellence in his life and to profit spiritually in his walk, he must become a doer of the word. But before he can become a doer of the word, he must first receive the engrafted word. Today there are a lot of Christians who are not doers of the word. In this is why they fail in life, they live defeated lives.
Now when any person gets saved, at that very moment of Salvation, that person's eyes are spiritually opened and he is indwelt with the Holy Spirit and he also receives the filling of the Holy Spirit. Where he is filled with the Spirit and with the Scripture. And while a Christian cannot lose the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and of the Holy Scripture.
However though, he can lose the filling of the Holy Spirit and of the Holy Scripture. And if the Christian goes long without the filling of the Spirit, he then begins to face the danger of becoming spiritually Blind. This is what James 1 and 2 Peter 1:9 are speaking about. The born again Christian who continues to walk after the flesh, loses his spiritual sight to where he eventually becomes spiritually blind to where he cannot see afar off, forgets he is even saved (2 Peter 1:9) and he forgets what manner of man he was (James 1:23-24), and also stumbles because of the spiritual darkness which he is abiding in (1 John 2:9-11).
If a Christian hates his brother or his sister in Christ, that Believer is spiritually blind and is not abiding in the light of God's word, but is abiding and walking in darkness. If this blind Believer does not repent of his sins and transgressions, and chooses to stay in darkness (in his walk (State), then he will lose the things which God had desired to give him in heaven. He will suffer huge loss of inheritance, rewards and crowns. And will not be able to partake of the glory which shall be revealed. He will still be in heaven. For he is still God's child and as brother Terrill Price points out, our Lord Jesus loves all believers. And yes, even the lukewarm, carnal and blind believers. And while Our Lord Jesus Christ loves all those that are His, still though, he still cannot reward disobedience.
