Therefore it says: “Awake you, the one sleeping, and rise up out from the dead, and Christ will shine upon you.”Ephesians 5:14
During the course of a prayer meeting yesterday, I beheld an eagle soaring high above, looking keenly down. t.c.a.l.s.s, it was an express invitation from the Lord for His people to come up/connect in revelation. To start seeing things from the kingdom perspective, from the higher divine standpoint. To embrace the face of the eagle as expressed in Ezekiel 10:14
This is so vital because we have entered into an even more accelerated phase in the realm of the spirit as things (the divine program for this age) begin to round up and gears have shifted in the realm of the spirit with the beginning of this new decade. (something akin to Amos 9:13).
The system of the world which we have known for so long is about to be seriously up-ended. Heb 12:27 calls it a time of ‘shaking’ where things will be turned over.
A time Isa 60:2 calls the time when ‘darkness will cover the earth & deep deep darkness shall cover the face of the people…’
Your standpoint in Christ and the lens through which you see the things starting to unfold will greatly affect:
(1) your ability to walk in peace as sons or give in to the fear the world wants you to.
(2) your positioning for perhaps the greatest move of God we have witnessed in any generation so far.
Sure there are “Dark” times ahead YET crucially also a time of great opportunity for more of the revelation of Jesus Christ like the earth has never witnessed.
As in Isa 60: 2-3, the LORD is about to arise in a fresh & more powerful way upon His people as His light causes them to become beacons of light through which the greatest harvest of souls the Kingdom has ever known will commence.
But one crucial key for you, me and the Ecclesia is that IT IS TIME TO SEE LIKE THE EAGLE. It is time to move beyond seeing in ‘flesh’, beholding ‘enemies’ at every turn, and beyond all the gimmicks and deceptions which pander to self which God’s people have been captive to for so long.
Yes it is time for all to begin to Arise, Shine as Isa 60:1 charges us to.
From the least of us to the ‘greatest’ (if there’s even such a thing)
2019 should have marked the year when your King Uzziah died.
The year when veils of personal ambition, denominational zealousness, etc were removed and your eyes opened wide to truth! The year when self and flesh were no longer central to your faith walk. For the Kingdom of GOD has begun a march like never before.
Personally since Dec of 2019 I have witnessed 2 distinct trends in my walk.
The second of which is that my eyes are more frequently (& crucially more ‘effortlessly‘) opened now by the spirit of the Lord in waking states to see from above. They open up when the spirit needs me to know something or communicate something that will serve His divine purposes. It’s not necessarily about any particular thing I have done BUT that there is now a greater outpouring of grace like never before!! You can too. If you are called to it (which we all are) or if you earnestly desire it (which we all should).
You should desire it because it just makes you infinitely sharper in intercessions, in evangelism, in counselling, in ministrations and even in decision making. In short for far less effort you see better fruit! Ref:the sharpened knife Vs the blunt edge which requires more strength application in Ecclesiastes 10:10
But are you lifting up our eyes though? And as Christ asked Mary in John 20:15 Whom seekest thou?
The common saying that “what you do not know will not kill you” is rubbish. Everyday people are perishing from what they cannot perceive (ignorance). Spiritually perishing, Socially perishing, etc
The other day I was rounding up a meeting which fellow brethren had handled very well when suddenly my eyes where opened and I beheld in one quick burst that one in our midst was in a very different appearance in the spirit than their physical appearance. I was shown clearly the head full of rasta raga-muffin hair (which is no big deal in of itself) but as I was going to inquire of the spirit, I heard Him speak clearly to me the words: Intoxication, and then Indoctrination (to further clear up my confusion).
All I did was stand up and declare it exactly as I was shown when suddenly someone collapsed and what ensued next was a terrible manifestation of foul demonic spirits so violently reacting out of said victim that some attendees almost took off home.
God mightily delivered that person that evening to the awesome glory of His name (all the while showing image sequences of hidden secrets, graves and acts of destruction wrought through that life) amen..
The person has been very different since and in the new path to true faith.
Light shone. There was clear exposure.
The darkness could not comprehend the light. QED.
Just 1 brief revelation from the LORD led to a great & permanent deliverance in someones’s life. And that’s just 1 teeny example.
Forget about your life for a moment, your eyes being wide open can lead to fruitfulness, deliverance and even salvation for so many lives that God brings across your path..so why will you not hunger for it? If not for yourself..then for the sake of Christ’s investment in you?
If you too distracted by life’s pursuits or too denominationally blind or too dependent on others to see for you:..God wants you to come up!!!
He says the time of ignorance, immaturity & excuse is over.
He needs all His sons and daughters to awake from slumber now to their responsibility, for the great harvest is at hand.
Isaiah the prophet ran a fairly decent ministry by earth standards for 5 chapters of his life. But from Chapter 6:1 the story changed, and still profits even our generation.
“In the year that King Uzziah died” marked the season when He actually began to minister from the throne room and heart of God. The year when His message changed to the true message.
“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple“.
The highest thing to have our eyes open to is the Revelation of Jesus Christ as as Rev 1:1- It’s all about Him and for Him. He is THE REASON.
Eyes open (perception) from the divine heavenly/Kingdom standpoint is perhaps more crucial now than ever! And it is time to start seeing clearly with the eyes of Christ or from the standpoint of heaven and get out of all this flesh nonsense that passes for seer prophecy these days which does nothing to exalt Christ nor truly edify the body.
Like Apostle John the beloved was rightly positioned in Rev 1:10-12. The first crucial step for us is to be rightly positioned. The time to begin to truly walk in your God ordained destiny is now!
We will talk more about how to position correctly next post.
Grace and conviction unto us all in JESUS name.
