It is amazing when you are talking/praying with God and while you are speaking words to Him and listening for anything from Him some words come out of your mouth that your ears hear and you suddenly stop. This wonderful feeling comes over you while you repeat the words you just said knowing God has stamped a special meaning for you to understand.
Your mind and heart start racing after those words of thought looking for the complete understanding God wants you to see. This is exactly what happened to me. The words came out of my mouth unto the Lord with “My spirit cannot see without you, L:ord“. It was like the Lord held out His hand in the form of stop and listen to what you just said to Me.
I focused on those words “My spirit cannot see without you, L:ord” and the first word to connect to my understanding was the word “see“. When I am reading God’s word or talking with Him I immediately associate the word “see” with the scripture Jesus quoting the prophecy of Esaias, “ By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:” (Mtt. 13:14).
I have always believed this was a dislike of God in having ears to hear and eyes to see, but no understanding and no perception. It is also my life goal to hear God as much as I can with understanding and to see God with as much perception. On the other side, the devil loves for us to hear and be deaf to understanding. The devil loves for us to see and be blind to perceiving. Just live in this world and do what you want.
OLD AS TIME TACTICS
When the devil talked with Eve he sent words into her ears to cloud her true understanding and to get her to see the forbidden fruit as good blinding her perception. “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat… ” (Gen. 3:6). It is beautiful to study God’s word gleaming understandings and perceptions of what He thinks and believes.
I believe we are in a crises today with people’s understandings and perceptions being so clouded and blind to physical facts. People are hearing with their ears and not understanding. People are seeing with their eyes and not perceiving. The devil, who has transformed himself into the appearance of an angel of light and false goodness. He has unleashed his transformed false ministers as representatives of false righteousness sending words into the people’s ears clouding their understandings and to get them to see violence as good blinding them to their perception. v13 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.” v14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” v15 “Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Cor. 11:13-15
Jesus quoted Esaias and I quote what is happening right now today when he said, v29 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” The after effects of going down this path like Eve and Adam brought sin upon all the world people today people can be caught up within themselves so much their understanding and perceptions has been tremendously dulled affecting an entire nation and world. v21 “Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” This next verse talks about rewarding or bribing evil people and taking away the rights of the ones who are in the right. The ones who see facts and perceive them to be true and hear things understanding them to be true as they are and not be deceived. v23 “Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!” (Is. 5:20,21, 23).
WE ARE IN DANGER
“My spirit cannot see without you, L:ord“. Eve and Adam jeopardized their eternal souls listening to the devil and his smooth talking words. I realized very deeply when I spoke these words to the Lord, “My spirit cannot see without you, L:ord“, how much in danger I am if I do not seek the Lord for wisdom and understanding. My spirit relies upon my fleshly eyes to see physical things in this world and my fleshly ears to hear the physical sounds and words spoken in this world, but my spirit cannot see or hear the truth unless the Lord mercifully translate the truth behind them.
You will find wherever you go mankind has his opinions, which is fine, but what is not fine is for you to not ask, seek, and knock on doors for clear understandings and perceptions. Our spirits cannot see past the surface without some help and it has to be the right help for it to be truth. People today are leaping on things and reacting before the full truth comes out. If it is a scriptural thing place it in the scales of the Bible and study it out for yourself before accepting it. If it is news research as much information as you can before locking your decision into place. Whatever it may be the key to understanding is asking, seeking, and knock on doors for truth (Luke 11:9). If it is truth there is nothing to be afraid of, but if it is not truth? People will hate you for your asking, seeking, and knocking methods because you may find what is hidden.
The devil and his ministers want you to keep on seeing and hearing as long as your perception and understanding does not see the light shining upon the truth and even if you do see they want you to close your eyes or look the other way. Jesus said, “ For the heart of this people has become dull, With their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes, Otherwise they would see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.” (Mtt. 13:15).
I CAN’T SEE WITHOUT YOU
“My spirit cannot see without you, L:ord“. My spirit has no eyes of perception and no ears of understanding without You, Lord translating what is working behind the scenes. I am where am I today because you have shared Your truth with me. I would be blind and deaf in my spirit if it were not for You. I am astonished at the people today who have eyes and ears that physically function, but behind them their spirit does not perceive or understand. I cannot thank You enough Lord for Your mercy and grace You shown me.
Think about it, how does your spirit see? How does your spirit hear? What things have you believed to be true only to find out it was a lie? How do you discern the Light of God from the transformed light of the devil? How can you see and hear past a person talking to you as to what they are saying to be true or false? The things we take into our minds, hearts, and soul become the eternal decision makers for us when we leave this world. There are things under our own noses we do not see. A temper, jealousy, bitterness, unforgiveness, and many others things can hide before our eyes and ears until our spirit comes to the understanding.
Those moments that are like a light bulb being turned on inside our heads is when our spirit sees something it had not seen before. Our spirit has got to see and hear to have a conscience. When our spirit does not see or hear and the flesh is doing all the work for us the emotional and deceptiveness is in control because our flesh will always want things selfishly. We live in a “me me” society looking inward for self and not outward for truth.
The gravity of it all causes my heart to desire with all my being to open to God to give my spirit eyes for true perception and ears for my spirit to understand. My spirit cannot see without You. My spirit cannot hear without You, Lord. I love You, Lord. I am more of a balanced person today in my spirit than I ever could be on my own battling the things of this world.
DO YOU WANT TO SEE
The beauty of God giving sight and hearing directly to your spirit is a wisdom that is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to listen, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy (James 3:17). Making God your roommate inside your body with your spirit is the greatest thing anyone could ever do. It is not just the saving of your soul and going to heaven. It is having the greatest friend right inside you guiding you to all truth (Jn. 16:13).
What comes with God being your roommate inside your body is the fellowship of His thoughts speaking to your thoughts, His desire to those around and through you, and generally His revelations to your understandings. Your spirit can see and hear Him doing things everyday if you look for it. It is amazing what you see and hear when God opens it up to your spirit. It is a euphoria of joyfulness that words cannot explain and full of glory (1 Peter 1:8).
I would not have known the things in the past nor the things in the present if it were not for God helping my spirit to see. I would still be in the same condition or worse if it were not for God revealing myself and surroundings to my spirit. If you want your spirit to see dare to ask questions, seek with the intent to find answers, and knock on doors of opportunity to discover the truth.
MAKE GOD YOUR ROOMMATE
It is easy to make God your roommate because He wants to help you more than you want to help yourself. He does not like any of us having cloudy understandings and blind perceptions. He is not the author of confusion because that is what the devil does. God wants us to have His Spirit of truth. Receiving God’s Spirit is a powerful experience that you will never forget or ever be the same.
One of the things that is misunderstood and not grasped is God said He would “pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh” (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17). God has not stopped His salvation for mankind, but a continuance until all things be fulfilled. Receiving God’s Spirit is more than just believing in Him. There is more of a personal interaction with you and God when you receive His Spirit because He said you will “receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:” (Acts 1:8). How could it be anything less when you receive the power of God’s Spirit inside your body with your spirit?
It is more than just believing because your believing meets the power of God and they become one with an experience that will change your life and fellowship with God forever. Phillip was preaching in a town called Samaria. The people believed Phillip’s preaching about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus. They believed and were baptized. This sounds complete and finished with no need of anything else, but something happened.
The apostles heard back in Jerusalem that the people in Samaria received the word of God. This is the believing part and were baptized in Jesus name. How many perceive and understand today that is all that is needed to be saved and in a relationship with God? Well, the apostles did not see that as enough or complete because they sent Peter and John to Samaria. The believing and baptism in Jesus name needed the infilling of God’s Holy Ghost, which had yet to fall upon any of them. Peter and John went to pray for them and lay hands on them that they might receive the Holy Ghost (Acts 8:14-17).
The infilling of God’s Spirit was only acceptable when a person allowed God to fall on them in a powerful way that they went from praising God in their native language to praising God in another language as God gave them the utterance. This was a sign to them they received God’s Spirit. Simon from Samaria saw how “ through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money“. Simon saw something come upon those people in a powerful way and wanted to buy that power to be able to keep performing his tricks in Samaria (Acts 8:18).
There are several scriptures in Acts about receiving the infilling power of God’s Holy Spirit. The gospels are biographies of Jesus and the books after Acts are letters to already save people and churches. The book of Acts is the only place that lays out salvation and the results of salvation completely.
You can receive the powerful infilling of the Holy Ghost because it is a promise to all generations and to all that are afar off (Acts 2:39) with a non stop continuance of pouring His Spirit upon all flesh. You can make God your roommate by repenting, being baptized in Jesus name for the remission of sins, and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38) with the powerful sign of the intimate speaking as God gives you the utterance (Acts 10). God is not dead and neither is the book of Acts.
