To buy or not to buy?
Buy now while quantities last!
Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold1 tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment2, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve3, that thou mayest see.
Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
The word buy is from the Greek. Agoradzo, to be in the market place; to do business there. The word is used here in the sense of doing business with God on His terms. Man sold himself a slave to sin and Satan. God paid the price for his redemption. Man is now obligated to meet God’s terms of faith, repentance, and SERVICE if he wants to be redeemed. The word is not used here of man actually paying the price in money, goods, exchanging material things for the gold, raiment, and ointment of v18 but rather of his paying the price of renouncing Satan, repenting of sins, and consecrating to God in face of suffering persecution such as Christians must suffer for Christ.
2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
1- Gold: This represents true faith (1Pet. 1:17)
2- White raiment: This represents righteousness (Rev. 19:8)
3- Anoint eyes with eyeslave: This represents enlightenment by the Holy Spirit and the word of God that thou mayest see (You need both here!!!) (Ps. 19:8; Eph. 1:18; Heb. 6:4; 1 Jn. 2:27
