I’m on a mission to see higher in the spirit on this day! When Adam was birthed into this earth, he was able to see the eternal and the temporal. However, when he fell from God he fell into the natural and could not see with his spiritual eyes. This is why they call Jesus the last Adam. Christ came to restore our vision, to get us back to the place of Eden, with no more toil, clear vision, and direct relationship with the Father through our Savior Jesus Christ.
I have been a dreamer since a child of about 14 years old. I have visions from God that show me about the things to come as well as people who are around me. I know there is an eternal & our path to life has been laid out for us, because He said it in His word & He confirms it in my visions. How else could He provide a vision that will come to pass if it hasn’t already done in the spirit?
Ephesians 2:20-For we are God’s own handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, born anew that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us (taking paths which He prepared ahead of time), which He prearranged and made ready for us to live.
There is a plan of the enemy as well. This is how the power of prophecy can interject on the believer’s behalf. We speak the word of the Lord into our future and make a declaration against what the enemy has for us. I had a dream almost two weeks ago, that my Mother was in a storm and had a car accident. I began to pray against this in the spirit. A week later my Mother text me and told me that she was in a storm driving through the south on vacation. I sent Psalm 91 to her via text and confessed this again with another believer. She stated about 15 minutes later that the storm had let up. We have two roads to take! The road of seeing and believing or the road of unbelief and letting the enemy has his way.
Seeing in the Spirit has been on my heart as God directed me to a book “The School of Seers” by Jonathan Welton. In addition this same word was preached tonight at bible study. Therefore, I had to share as I’m bubbling over with excitement and revelation! I’m sharing this book with you as scripture states that, “We are healed by the words of our testimonies”. (Rev 12:11). I know I’m not the only one who has had the spirit of doubt when reading the miracles in the bible. However, with the words of our testimonies we understand that God is in the same business of healing, angels, supplying in th desert, etc.
I wanted further insight into this gift of prophecy that God has given me. However, this book gave me far more insight than I had hoped. Jonathan has a gift of being a ‘seer’. Seers are throughout scripture and are interchanged with the word prophet at times, but they can be completely separate callings. Jonathan can see demons, angels, wounds, etc all in the spirit. The following passages from his book transformed my mind into what God was really doing in another realm. If we were BORN spiritually blind we don’t have comprehension without the Holy Spirit on what God is doing in the eternal/spiritual realm.
Jonathan gave account of angels visiting the worship services only when the praise got high. He stated that there were two 15 ft angels standing at the pulpit shooting out fire as the crowd began to dance for joy. As the service got more intense with the spirit, more angels began to drop into the service, but something happened to interrupt the service. The praise leader was NOT in the spirit, as he cut the service short, the angels went away with a sad face knowing the people had missed out on something. How many times has that happened in a service you attended? Didn’t your spirit feel saddened?
We see the power of praise and angelic interaction with Paul and Silas!
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose.
The Bible says that God inhabits in the praises of His people (Psalms 22:3)
Jonathan also saw angels that were called “Equipping Angels”. He said that they carried brands that read: prophet to the nations, evangelist, preacher, teacher, etc. As they began to worship the angels began to brand individuals in the service.
Welton also stated on one occurence he began to see the doors of heaven. In each door he had access to, it was something amazing. One room is where he saw spare body parts for miracles. Another room, he saw diamonds which had the faces of different people in each one of them. God sees us a gems! In another room he saw different forms of money for our provision! Lastly, he was in a moist & pink area of heaven, which he stated was the middle of the heart of God! How amazing is this vision?! It brings faith to the believers knowing that He is ready to provide for His children!
He also spoke on the demonic realm, and how he could see things in the spirit that were evil, including sickness. He stated that one lady had about 5 different illnesses at one time. In this service he could spiritually discern/ see about 5 spears that were coming out of her. 5 spears in the spirit? Her condition was so painful that when he touched the areas of the spears it LITERALLY pained her. The sickness that she was struggling with had come from lies, hateful words, fear, anxiety, forgiveness issues, and other unrighteousness in the spirit. As he began to pray for her, he told her to let go of the unforgiveness and fear. As she did this, she was healed from her ‘physical’ symptoms.
“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” (Eph 6:16). The evil one is shooting spiritual darts at us. This is why God calls the word of the Lord a sword of the spirit! “Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise bring healing” (Prov 12:18).
There is so much more that I have to learn about seeing in the spirit, and this book & the scriptures I referred to are only the tip of the iceberg. If we want to see more in the spirit, to receive the revelation knowledge that Adam once functioned in before the fall, we must remove hindrances. Welton stated that the following had blocked his discernment at times: Scary Movies, Past Emotional Wounds, Internal Stress, The Fear of Man, Disobedience, Evil Motives, Superstition, & Lust Issues.
LOVE is also very key, if not the most significant of them all next to faith. If we do not walk in the love of God we can not discern anything! He said, you will know they are Christians by their….LOVE! That’s discernment in action right there! We don’t know what their name may be, but we can discern if they are loving or not!
As soon as we can begin living in the eternal, we can override the natural happenings in our lives which keep us in bondage all to often. How else can we say that we are strong when we are really weak? How else can we say that we are more than conquerors, when we feel like we don’t matter? How else do we know that we are healed, when the doctor has diagnosed us with a disease. It is through the spirit! We must worship him in spirit and in truth.
We often state this scripture in the body, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” without stating the entire context, we CAN’T know the truth. The ENTIRE scripture says, “If you continue in my word, then you are my disciples indeed; AND you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” NOT SET YOU FREE…MAKE YOU FREE! Follow His word, and that is where we will find FREEDOM!
Heb 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things unseen”. This unseen is NATURAL! There are so many instances when God sent an angel or a demonstration for people to see in the spirit. Blind faith in the spirit is SCARY & not of him. We must have a vision of what God wants to do in our lives. In Habakuk he told us to write the vision and make it plain! Someone had to SEE something….in the spirit. Without revelation all we have is INFORMATION! This is why there is such war, debt, and destruction, because we don’t understand the supernatural of God.
Let’s go higher on this day so that we can know the will for our lives and receive the goodness that God has for us, while blocking the evil spirits and plans for our lives. God is a strategic God…let’s get to know His blueprint which is the WORD! I pray that we willl begin to have x-ray vision, night goggles in the darkness of our temporal situations, and that we have 20/20 vision of what He has to say about our lives!
Praise god & meditate to receive a word for your life today!
King James Version (KJV)
15Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
16For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
2 Cor 2:9-12
However, as it is written:
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[b]—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—
10these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
AMEN & LOVE YOU ALL!
