The Spirit of God has really been speaking to me in this season on how He is opening eyes to see, ears to hear, and how He is activating our spiritual senses to know what is going on all around us not just in the physical realm, but in the realm of the Spirit.
The Spirit of God drew my attention firstly to Samson. In Judges 14 it states that Samson “SAW” a Philistine woman. The LORD says in this season it is very IMPORTANT not just what you allow your eyes to see BUT how you see!
Samson was ANOINTED by the LORD. He was used mightily of God. But Samson was governed more by his natural senses than by the Spirit of God upon his life. The LORD says your eye is a GATE, and those GATES need to be GUARDED!
The LORD says this is a season, “I AM sharpening like a knife your spiritual senses. I AM opening eyes to see. I AM attuning ears to the frequency of heaven.”
The LORD says that this is a time and season He is looking for those who will allow the LORD to have His way in their lives that their natural senses, natural sight, and natural hearing, and natural appetites would no longer govern them.
But the LORD says this is a time to both SEE and HEAR what the LORD is saying to His people and in the earth.
Samson, because he was not completely given over to the LORD, nor did he subdue his flesh and natural senses, he eventually had his eyes plucked out at the end of his life also symbolizing the loss of spiritual sight he had experienced in his life and walk with the LORD.
But the LORD is desiring to open our eyes MORE and MORE as He gives unto us the Spirit of Wisdom and the Spirit of Revelation (Ephesians 1:17).
I even have been hearing the LORD say that in this season He is INCREASING the SEER DIMENSION. Many will begin to SEE and have VISIONS like never before!!!
Secondly, the Spirit of the LORD has been drawing my attention to Elisha and his servant in 2 Kings 6. Here the wicked King of Syria decides to want what belongs to the people of God.
The only problem was there was a PROPHET of GOD to whom the LORD REVEALED the wicked schemes of the enemy. The king out of anger sends a whole army to capture Elisha. When Elisha’s servant sees the army, he looks at them through his natural eyes and is quickly afraid. Listen to the response of the Prophet Elisha as He prays for his servant:
“…LORD, I pray Thee open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw; and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha,” 2 Kings 6:7.
The Prophet Elisha prays and a great shift takes place in the life of this young man. Here we see an up front spiritual activation. No longer is he seeing through the lens of the natural but now he is seeing through the Spirit of God and what looked impossible he now knows is possible through the power of God and even the angels that the LORD sent for their aid.
My friends, will you pray this prayer with me today. It is a prayer of activation to ask the LORD to open up our eyes, to open up our spiritual ears, to sharpen and activate our spiritual senses:
LORD, I pray right now in the Name of Jesus that you would anoint my eyes with eye salve that I may see.
LORD I don’t just want to see in the natural, but LORD activate my spiritual eyes to see what is taking place in the realm of the spirit.
LORD, help me to know in every situation You have sent your Spirit and your angels to protect me from the enemy and to even bring heavenly provision when needed.
LORD, I also ask you open my ears to attune them to Your voice. I want to hear Your voice above everything else.
LORD, sharpen my spiritual senses this day. LORD, open my eyes to the seer dimension! In Jesus’ Name!
