10 Points of Revelation 3:18
“I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.” NASB

1 God advises us ~ Respond to the Lord's advice from the Scriptures. Luke 8:15

2 Buy from God ~ Serve God from your heart, like the man who found the hidden treasure who sold all to get the treasure. Matthew 13:44

3 What is gold ~ Gold refers to the good works we do because of God's love flowing from us to others. 1 Peter 1:7

4 Refined by fire ~ Fire refines the work and turns it to gold as we work through the fires of life. Work is refined as we give God glory instead of complaints in the midst of the fire. Zechariah 13:9 1 Cor 3:13

5 Become rich ~ not through possessions Luke 12:15; but having renewed your mind Romans 12:2 to use the promises of God for Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:20

6 Buy white garments ~ white garments come from being washed in the blood. Revelation 12:11 How do we get this blood? We work out our salvation Philippians 2:12 by believing God and not our accuser. John 6:29

7 Clothe yourself ~ After believing God has washed us clean from sin, we put on righteousness and step out in service. Righteousness is put on by believing in what Christ has done for us. Isaiah 52:1,2

8 Cover shame of nakedness ~ Our old self is sinful and useless for Kingdom use. We cover our nakedness by believing in Jesus and what He did for us. Matthew 22:12

9 Buy eye salve to anoint eyes ~ This salve heals you from only seeing in the natural. It is a decision to believe what Jesus said and not what you see in the natural. Jeremiah 46:11

10 Eyes to see ~ Ability to see in the spirit what God has promised before it can be seen in the natural. Ephesians 1:18
