“Seer” Anointing -3

The “Seer” Anointing – 3

TYPES OF VISIONS

As we progress, we will receive more KEYS to see in the spirit realm:

The more I am leaning into to Spirit, desiring intimacy with the Lord, focusing on the Lord Jesus, the more I will see.

In this place I keep my natural eyes guarded, not to look to the world and the “entertainments” of the world. Where the eyes go, the mind follows. Therefore wehave to keep our hearts pure (uncontaminated or clouded with worries or concerns) so that our spiritual eyes can receive the light of understanding, constantly “looking for His face”, minding the things of the Spirit, not of the flesh.

Visions frequently come when we are in deep worship in the Spirit. (Rev.1: “I was in the Spirit of the Lord’s day”).

There are different types of visions, but today we will discuss:
INNER VISION.

Inner Vision comes when we are wide awake with open or closed eyes, but seeing in the spiritual realm with our spiritual eyes.

The Greek word “horama” (Strong’s # 3705 – cognate – a vision (spiritual seeing), focusing on the impact it has on the one beholding the vision (spiritual seeing).

This type of vision occurs most often, but in order to obtain the greatest benefit from it, we need to exercise faith and ask for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to interpret the vision and then apply it appropriately.

It comes from relationship in intimacy of worship and at the same time it brings a revelation of the knowledge of the Lord and of His heart. It is often accompanied by the Holy Spirit bringing remembrance of a certain Scripture and that is why it is important to get saturated in the Word.

I will share a practical example with you for greater understanding and put explanatory notes in brackets.

I want to encourage you to use your imagination and “picture” (envision) the experience with me:

It had been raining earlier on, but when I went for a walk along the ocean and then along a lagoon, the mist was so thick that I couldn’t see further than a hundred yards around me. There was an air of wonder in the mood of this late afternoon, and I was worshiping the Lord for His awesome creative power (not asking for , anything, or having any consciousness other than Him, just worshiping Him). Everything was misty and the picture was painted in monochrome tones with the sound of the waves tumbling onto the shore. I started singing some “new” songs to the Lord (spontaneous impromptu lyrics that came up in my spirit), worshiping Him with all my heart, delighting myself in the beauty of His creation. Seagulls were drifting along with the outgoing tide and others were gathered in groups along the side of the lagoon, occasionally rising up and flying to the other side as I drew near.

Seagulls were drifting along with the outgoing tide and others were gathered in groups along the side of the lagoon, occasionally rising up and flying to the other side as I drew near.  The fog was creeping in closer and closer and in the last light of the day a barely perceptible faint pink hue was spreading over the scene.  It was too beautiful for words and I was totally overwhelmed by the Spirit as I was in deep worship, extolling the Lord.  Darkness was setting in with visibility minimizing and street lights came on, shining dimly in the fog.  The Scripture came to my mind “Darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”.  I was pondering on this when suddenly I had a vision of the Lord Jesus (with open eyes, but seeing with my spiritual eyes into the spirit realm) wearing a long white flowing robe, coming out of the mist and walking towards me in a kind of floating motion.  I was totally overcome by His presence, being enveloped in His love and light for a while in spite of the darkness that started to fall around me in the natural.  I was thinking of the contrast between His light and the darkness setting in around me. Then the Lord reminded me of Stephan, seeing the heavens opened over him and looking into the glory of the Lord, while he was being stoned.  The Lord conveyed to me (I use the word “convey” because in visionary experiences the Lord usually doesn’t commune with words, but there is an understanding and a “knowing” of what He is “saying” in the spirit-to Spirit communication) that, when darkness comes over the earth and even when persecution comes (and it will come according to the Scriptures), there will be no fear.  We should keep looking into the glory and shining forth His glory light (Is.60:1), being prepared to bear bold witness of Him in spite of it.  I knew that this was a message for the church to come up in higher places in the glory so that His glory light can shine so brightly over us that “kings will come to the brightness of your rising” to enquire about Him.  I stood there worshiping the Lord for a long time. 

This type of vision the “lowest” kind of vision, but the greatest in revelatory content and it requires a greater measure of faith.

This falls in the category of a message-type vision.

In this vision there was also the symbolical element that nature played in the revelation of the Lord’s message to me.  (Jesus always taught in parables). 

Mat 13:34 “ All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them” 

The experience left me impacted with the awesome power of His Presence and the deep knowing that His light dispels all darkness. I was meditating on it for the rest of the evening, also recording it in my journal and it was imprinted in my spirit man as a strengthening for the perilous times ahead.  How glorious is our Lord!
