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!

<p>HEARING AND SEEING GO TOGETHER.</p><br />
<p>I cannot over emphasize the importance of being saturated with the Word of God, worship and prayer so that our whole being be filled and saturated with the Spirit.</p><br />
<p>As our consciousness is absorbed IN HIM in the LIGHT, our heart is made ready to receive impressions from the Holy Spirit and is impressed upon with His “now” revelation, being an open receptive “tablet” for the Holy Spirit to write on.</p><br />
<p>More on the “apokalupsis” (Strong’s Greek 602), meaning “uncovering”:</p><br />
<p>It is that moment when “the light comes on”, revelation floods your understanding and suddenly you “see” that which was hidden or “covered”.

<p>In the Hebraic language, words are coupled with pictures and become visually descriptive images.   This is very significant in our endeavor to see more clearly what the Lord is saying.

<p>It is amazing to see how our spiritual understanding is opening up and being expanded daily as we keep on praying for the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation…to give us “enlightened eyes of our understanding’” according to Ephesians 1: 17-20.<br /><br />
Strong's Greek: 5461.- to shine<br /><br />

<p>This is interesting that the word “enlightening” is derived from phōtízō<br /><br />

<p>One such “enlightening” comes on the understanding of the “rhema” word.  The written Word (“logos”) becomes “rhema’ (revelation) to us when the Holy Spirit gives life to a specific scripture and it resounds in the depth our spirit with understanding, “for the letter killeth, but the Spirit gives life’ (II Cor. 3: 6).  This is one way in which the Lord “speaks” to us.</p><br />
<p>23 “If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend.<br /><br />

<p>The more we meditate on that Word, or “picture” (in whatever form it comes, e.g. a vision or dream, etc.) feeding on it, agreeing with it and speaking it forth, the more we can start seeing the picture according to God’s Word until it becomes substance on the inside of us. Faith rises up in us and it brings strength and encouragement to our spirit man.  Seeing by the eyes of faith (having the picture of God’s promise before us) displaces fear images and enables us to see and expect the fulfillment of God’s promises (Heb. 11:1).  This is a vital key for victory in every situation of our lives.</p><br />

<p>Currently there is much emphasis on the eye and the visionary aspects in the prophetic stream and I have been led to discuss various kinds of visions and dreams in the following weeks.</p>
<p>The year 2014 is numerically the year 5774 in the Hebrew calendar, known as Ayin Dalet. Ayin refers to vision and Dalet to an open door.<br />

<p>To increase your ability to “see” into the spirit realm, I would recommend that you pray the prayer in Eph.1:17-20 on a regular basis. Be expectant to “see” what God is saying, because visions could also be called visible Word. God “speaks” to us through what He shows us.</p>

<p>Most of us have had a moment where we said, “Oh now I see what you are saying”.

“Quickening”

HOW GOD SPEAKS TO US – 2

“QUICKENING ”

What on earth is the term “Quickening” in the prophetic understanding?
According to Strongs (#2227) is means to “make alive, give life or vitality.”

The Holy Spirit brings something to our understanding and a “quickening” takes place where the Word that God wants to convey to you becomes a “knowing” – like “I know that I know that I know”. It is not something that can be “worked up” or sought, but It is a work of the Spirit that causes your whole being to “come alive” with the knowing that
God “said”. It could be through a Word that you read in the Bible that just suddenly comes alive on the inside of you and “speaks” to you, or it can be by a revelation of the Spirit of a deep spiritual truth. It could be coupled with a vision, which I like to call a “glory-glimpse”, but the one thing that stands out is that in a mysterious way it brings a knowing that it supernaturally “fits” as a personal application in your life.

Now, how you respond to such a “quickening” is very important.

One day, as I was earnestly praying in tongues about a difficult situation in my life, I was meditating on Zech.4:6 and Mark 11:22-24 when a “quickening” of the Spirit made the Word come alive to me. K knew that God gave me the key for victory and I started warring with the revelation that God’s grace removes mountains and within a few hours the news came to me that the mountain was removed.

God wants up to co-operate with His “quickening” in our spirit to bring about His desired end in things that we pray about so that His Kingdom can be established in the earth.

Write it down, declare it, prophesy it into your life and call it forth in great rejoicing!

Recently, I was just about to switch off my bed light to go to sleep when I suddenly had a vision regarding something I have been praying for. There was such a quickening in my spirit through what I saw in the vision that I realized God had already done what I have asked for in the supernatural realm. I jumped out of bed and started declaring what I saw, praising the Lord for His goodness and grace.

Sometimes a prophetic Word can come up in your spirit just like that, perfectly fitting the picture that you have been praying about.

Enjoy these invigorating, life-giving experiences with the Holy Spirit and do not lose the impact of it, but agree with what God is saying in prophetic declaration and you will see the effect in reality.

Blessings,
Elsabe

K knew that God gave me the key for victory and I started warring with the revelation that God’s grace removes mountains and within a few hours the news came to me that the mountain was removed.

God wants up to co-operate with His “quickening” in our spirit to bring about His desired end in things that we pray about so that His Kingdom can be established in the earth.

Write it down, declare it, prophesy it into your life and call it forth in great rejoicing!

Recently, I was just about to switch off my bed light to go to sleep when I suddenly had a vision regarding something I have been praying for. There was such a quickening in my spirit through what I saw in the vision that I realized God had already done what I have asked for in the supernatural realm. I jumped out of bed and started declaring what I saw, praising the Lord for His goodness and grace.

Sometimes a prophetic Word can come up in your spirit just like that, perfectly fitting the picture that you have been praying about. 

Enjoy these invigorating, life-giving experiences with the Holy Spirit and do not lose the impact of it, but agree with what God is saying in prophetic declaration and you will see the effect in reality.

How God Speaks To Us

HOW GOD SPEAKS TO US:

Information is coming from the Holy Spirit all the time, but we do not always recognize it, because we think it to be our own thoughts.

As we start taking note of the thoughts that come to us that are founded on the Word of God, we will stand amazed at how the Holy Spirit “talks” to us, giving us strategic Scriptures and military strategies against the enemy – especially when our minds are quiet before Him in the early morning hours when there are no distractions.

Sometimes it might just be a single word or an idea as He is beaming in on something that lies ahead in our day or week. Do not let it pass by, but jot it down and ask Him for more light on it.
