The Family Altar
21 It’s a very outstanding time. We realize that where we’re speaking from in the Scriptures, that it said, “There was no open vision in the days of Samuel.” Therefore, “Where there’s no vision,” the Bible said, “the people perish.” We must have a vision. And visions comes to the prophets, and it’s the Word of the Lord spoken to them.
22 And we find out that Eli was not a prophet, Eli was a priest. And he was getting old, and his eyes were going dim, and he could not see to get around, was a great heavy man. And he had begin to let the work of the Lord go undone.
23 And that’s something like it is of today. I think the church, the organization and denominations, they’ve been on the field for a long time, and they’re beginning getting laxed. And the work of the Lord is being left undone, the Word of Truth, because the church, in itself, has become dim-sighted. And we need, today, the Voice of God to speak among us, bring us back.
24 And, see, Eli had laid down, and the…his eyesight was failing. He was a priest. And they had no open vision from the Lord. And that great need!
25 And God has promised to meet the need of the hour. He always does that. And we need the Voice of God today, to meet the need of the hour, to meet the time that we’re living in. And after He has promised it, we can rest assured that He will keep His promise. That’s the confidence that the believer has in his Maker, that He promised to meet the need.
26 And, today, one reason that the church is in the condition that it’s in, is because there is so many voices, so many other voices to attract the church from the Voice of God, till it’s very doubtful that many would hear the Voice of God though It spoke right in their midst. They perhaps wouldn’t even understand It, because It would be a foreign thing to them. They have got themselves so much centered on the voices of the day!
