If there is a good thing that the expose`of The Light Of Peace Buddhist Ceremony did to the believers, was to embolden those who knew it was wrong but did not have the guts to speak against it! What they need is a forerunner who is a trailblazer of the truth! We did that and those with like minded spirit are aligning with us. As Iloilo, Philippines still continues to repent and educating those that joined the Ceremony to surrender their crystal ball, which is a sorcerer`s tool, we will move forward to learn more.
Can You See?
Today, I am going to talk to you about visions. Visions are one of the evidences of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is another dimension of the anointing that we should value and get to know more.
“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall SEE VISIONS, and your old men shall dream dreams..” (Acts 2:17, ESV)
Seeing visions should not be a terrifying experience to you. The Bible mentions that it will happen as an evidence of an outpouring. We need evidences when the Spirit of God arrives in a person. Hearing visions from people is one of them!
Physical Eyes Versus Eyes In the Spirit
Our body is endowed with a pair of eyes. What you see with your eyes is processed in your mind. Either you see bad or good, the mind will process it. The natural eyes can see from the surface. But sometimes, even if our natural eyes can see but if we are not focusing, we will not be able to see our environment. A good case for example is a man who is late for work. In his attempt to catch time in order to avoid being late, he may not be able to see the beggar at the road. Why? His focus is not on the beggar. His eyes were set to be on time in his job! There are so many things that we need to see when we get up in the morning. But because our mind is already set on what to do for that day, we tend to focus instead on what we want to accomplish and so we are missing a lot!
Here Comes The Tunnel Vision
What is that? A condition in which peripheral vision is lost or severely limited, so that only objects directly in line with the eyes can be seen. When the visual field is limited, the person will have a narrow viewpoint. A tunnel vision can only see what is in front of him. That`s the natural. In the spirit, when the Spirit of God is giving visions, in essence He would like to expand our understanding in so many directions. Tunnel vision in the spirit is being close-minded! If you want God to bring you to a place of greatness, you can not be limiting yourself with a tunnel vision. You will be stuck in one place while others are making an upward and forward progress! In fact, the Bible is showing to us that we have many eyes, but has nothing to do with the physical ones. Look at this:
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Ephesians 1:18, NASB)
This verse talks about the eyes of our heart. We need this in order to understand our callings and deciphering the glory of His wealth amongst us! Did you get that? The glory of His wealth is already among the believers! It is not out there! It is in here! In fact, the many poverty suffered across the board in the Body of Christ is the lack of the revelation of the glory of God! Why? Because the believers were not taught that they have eyes to see and understand the very thing which is already in them! If only your eyes can see, you do not have to wallow in the mud of poverty!
Here is another one:
“Hear, you deaf; look, you blind, and see! Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one committed to me, blind like the servant of the Lord? You have seen many things, but have paid no attention; your ears are open, but you hear nothing.” (Isaiah 42:18-20, NIV)
The blindness referred here is the blindness of the spirit of the man. Not paying attention is problematic to God. Because actually, God is speaking to everything all around us. God is screaming in nature, but we do not see it. God is revealing His glory in the church, but we divide it.
“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:21, KJV)
God is saying, “you could not be yoke with an unbelieving,” yet we plow ahead in an unholy relationship and worst, marry the person!
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14, ESV)
When a person could not see, there is a robbery of the precious revelation that can be the key to unlock supernatural blessings in his life! When you could not see, you get into all kinds of investments that went to nothing but losses! When you could not see, you are groping in the dark!
“At midday you will grope about like a blind person in the dark. You will be unsuccessful in everything you do; day after day you will be oppressed and robbed, with no one to rescue you.” (Deuteronomy 28:29, NIV)
God would like to reveal to you what He is doing in your life, in your church, in your city, in your country, but you are not paying attention! Then, here comes a prophet who seems to know what is going on in your lives and cities. Then, you wonder, how did the person get to know these things? What made the difference? Someone sat down in the presence of God and focused his eyes to see the in and out of everything!
In summary, not only do we have physical eyes that transmit information to the brain, but we also have eyes in our heart and another eyes in our spirit man! With all of these, we should see better! Not really! So many believers are quenched in their capacity to see because they have not read from the Bible that they could. Others were stopped, because their pastors did not get any education about the subject! So, they were never taught! When I saw how Iloilo, Philippines missed to discern an outright demonic activity brought by The Light Of Peace Buddhist Ceremony, I saw the gravity of the spiritual blindness among the pastors! If the leader is blind, what do you expect will happen to the congregation?
“Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14, NASB)
Awful, isn`t it? We could not leave you in your spiritual blindness, otherwise, you will suffer the same malady as your leaders! With the emergence of blind and worthless shepherds, thank God that everyone is not like that!
“So I pastured the flock doomed to slaughter, hence the afflicted of the flock. And I took for myself two staffs: the one I called Favor and the other I called Union; so I pastured the flock.” (Zechariah 11:7, NASB)
The popularity of not allowing visions to be entertained in our churches, is so telling on how one of the evidences of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is being rejected! Yet, we cry out for revival! We tried very hard to win a lost soul through a G12 movement effort or through an old time evangelistic effort, yet once they received visions, we treat people like trash! We are terrified of one of the evidences of the outpouring gift of the Holy Spirit!
In my own personal walk with God, the dreams that the Spirit of God are giving me are almost visions in clarity. I paid the price to get to that place in the Holy Spirit. Everyday for the last seven years, I have a a long list of sin groupings that I confess, repent and renounce in Jesus name! My sins are forgiven the first time I repented it. So, why do I have to rehearse them in confession and repentance? I am not seeking for forgiveness anymore when I do that, but for cleansing and understanding. Cleansing and understanding from the residue of defilement brought by sin.
“Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1, ESV)
The cleansing is to complete the anointing of holiness that I should carry and manifest. Holiness is a place in the spirit where your wounds are healed. Your mind is whole, they are neither broken nor scattered. Your spirit man is bound and not crushed. Your body is healthy and you are not in the healing line every Sunday! It is a state of wholeness, cleanliness and purity in body, mind and spirit! I have discovered that a lifestyle of repentance brought tremendous cleansing to my body and to the inner man! So when dreams and visions arrived to me, they are very clear. It is almost watching a movie!
Filtering Apparitions And Cutting Off False Visions
A lot of ministers are afraid that what their people are getting are nothing but apparitions or false visions, which is synonymous to lying! Apparitions and false visions disappear in a lifestyle of confession, repentance and renunciation! A good prophetic ministry, should incorporate healing and deliverance in their teachings! Do not just prophesy! Teach people how to get their healing and freedom in the Lord Jesus Christ!
We are cutting you off from all forms of occultic activity like crystal ball reading, palm reading, card reading, astrology and horoscope, and much more. These are activities that bring false visions and apparitions. It dilutes whatever you are getting from God. Instead of being sharp in the Holy Spirit, your visions and dreams are mixed with unnecessary dilutions because of your past exposure to the occult. You need to separate yourself from these things! Come out of it and be holy!
“Depart, depart, go out from there! Touch no unclean thing! Come out from it and be pure, you who carry the articles of the LORD’s house.” (Isaiah 52:11)
I hope you learn something today that you can use in your walk with God and to advance your journey with the Holy Spirit!
