Eyes Closed Eyes Opened
Eyes Closed Eyes Opened
Have Biblical Truths Become Blurred?
Are your eyes fully open to all the truths of God’s word and His plans and purposes for your life and that of His Church?
Drawing on over thirty years of full time Christian ministry, Derek Puffett looks afresh at the Great Commission in all its fullness, and the instruction given by Jesus to the apostle Paul to ‘open eyes so that people may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God’ (Acts 26:18).
When someone becomes a believer their spiritual eyes are opened. Derek’s challenging conclusion is that, if we fail to teach and apply the full gospel in our churches or ministries, we effectively close the eyes of believers. We become a barrier to them receiving the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing Jesus has made available. It is a case of eyes closed, eyes opened, and then eyes closed, or partially closed, to God’s truth.
This book will help you identify truths which may have become blurred or are even blind spots in your life. It will give you new insights and understanding that will enable you, and your congregation, if you are a church leader, to receive healing and become effective disciples for Jesus.
“I am in no doubt that this book will help you navigate the storms of Kingdom life, whilst at the same time empowering you and pointing you to the Rock, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who is the safest place of all.”
– Heinrich Titus, International Team Leader, Shofar Church
‘This book was a sobering reminder of the responsibility of the church and its leaders to teach the full counsel of God and to measure belief systems against the plumbline of His Word alone. A scripture-based, powerful must-read for every church leader and member.’
– Christel Baxter, Pastor, New Life Ministries, Boksburg
‘Eyes Closed, Eyes Opened’ is the product of obedience. It’s an authentic and challenging read. An important book for all leaders in the church and those who have a desire to see the church transformed into the beautiful, spotless bride of Christ.
– Herman Redelinghuys, Regional Director, Ellel Africa
‘This book is for every believer who knows Christ but is searching for answers to experience their relationship with God in a more real and abundant way. It encourages us as disciples and disciple-makers to discern the true light of Christ in a dark and deceptive world’.
– Ronel Geldenhuys, Deputy Director, Ellel Africa
