Millions of church goers attend services regularly and “having eyes to see, they do not see and having ears, they do not hear,” Mark 8:18. Natural eyes and ears do not work in the spirit world, you are totally blind in the spirit world even if you have 20/20 vision with your natural eyes. The eyes of the Spirit are completely different and are only opened using revelation.
You must have spiritual eyes to follow Me, because it makes no sense at all to suffer persecution and be hated for My name sake. Without spiritual eyesight you cannot see past your home, your retirement, or your family. Without spiritual eyes you will hate bad people and never see them saved. You will definitely not see a reason to give your life for someone like Me that lived on earth over 2,000 years ago.
My Father judges the hearts of men, and gives spiritual eyes to all those who He considers good ground, the rest cannot see beyond themselves, their 401k, or their possessions. Because they lack spiritual eyes the price to follow Me will eventually be to great. They have no problem going to church, or volunteering to do good things in the community, as long as they make a living and enjoy some of the good life.
These blind ones are very religious and come from all walks of life. They love My miracles, and anything that makes them dance and sing along with spiritual songs. Most of the things that the American church does can and is being done without spiritual eyes, because it feels good.
The spiritually blind cannot understand why someone would spend years in prison being beaten everyday, until they’re body no longer functions, because they will not deny Me. The spiritually blind see no problem with murmuring and complaining about their life when something does not benefit them.
Those having spiritual eyes, cannot tolerate things that are deceptive, nor can they cover up any dishonesty. Their eyes see the same things I do. They see the pain in others and weep for them. They are able to continually see beyond earth and see the kingdom. The moment they are truly born again they receive another pair of eyes, so they can see My kingdom, John 3:3.
A part of the great last day deception is the simple sinners prayer. No one decides to invite Me in. No one calls and chooses Me to come into their realm, My Father does the choosing and drawing, and I accept you if you are qualified. After you are called you determine whether I choose you or not.
You must remember, “many are called, but few are chosen,” Matthew 22:14. You are qualified and chosen when you reach the nothing stage, Matthew 10:39. Do not waste your time trying to make blind people see. They cannot, it’s impossible! Even if they say, I understand, it means they are intellectually understanding it, but they have no revelation, therefore cannot live it out. They can still find pleasure in sin and go to church at the same time, and even commit sin in church, feeling no conviction.
Conviction of sin comes from revelation; those with spiritual eyes are miserable when they sin, seeing clearly what they are doing to themselves and their calling. Those that have no eyes say, what’s the big deal, everybody does it!
Spiritual eyes are revelation eyes, that will see the same scripture and see a hundred different facets over time. Spiritual eyes are constantly controlled from the kingdom by the Spirit of revelation. You must wait on Me every day and “the Father of glory, will give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of the kingdom and of Himself:” Ephesians 1:17.
If you have blind loved ones and friends or coworkers, pray for Father to make them good ground and give them spiritual eyes, that “the eyes of they’re understanding will be enlightened; that they may know the hope of My calling, and the riches of the glory of My inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of My power to those who believe, and only according to the working of My mighty power,” Ephesians 1:18-19.
