Today's Verse:


kjv@Luke:11:33 @ No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

kjv@Luke:11:34 @ The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

kjv@Luke:11:35 @ Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

kjv@Luke:11:36 @ If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Context is all important here; it is the unrepentant's constant need for a further sign, the unrepentant's heart hardening over the signs already given and the hand that their venomous opposition will soon have in fulfilling all of messianic prophecy by their utter rejection; this is what is being referred to as the evil eye, the body full of darkness. It is not just each man individually that is unrepentant at the confirmation of Jesus as Christ by sign and wonder, divine signature, it is the body of unrepentant men that coalesce together as a result to deny and destroy such plus Christ's believers.

A light is lit that all may see. A light is lit regardless of what others may see of themselves because of it. By implication, it is a light lit that they can do nothing to put out, only to resist and thereby be shown to be of great darkness. In fact, it is so that men can see where they each are (have long been) minus the revealing knowledge of the light that should make them to better desire what is of the light and turn from what they now know to be the darkness. It is not everyone's desire however. It is only for those willing to turn away from the darkness, set aside that which they have been doing in the darkness, that which in the darkness they have rather loved.

The light is almost as to reveal that there are but two bodies total. An individual is either an identifiable part of the body of darkness else he/she is of the body of light. If one's eye is single then only Christ Jesus can be that light, for only He has been lit in divine confirmation like no other. If not then single Christ Jesus then is confused with and clouded or put on the same level by whatever else might be thought of and presented by the body of darkness. The eye is not single then upon the light, it is single no matter how many other Christs occupy His space upon the darkness. In the Pharisee's case, he is fixed upon the veil of Moses instead of the diminishing light reflecting off Moses behind it making way for the soon and lasting greater light upon Christ.
