Summary: Seeing into the needs of people will change the way you speak to people Moving from information sharing in the area of counselling which comes from our knowledge To the revelation of fresh bread. Fresh food fresh hope straight from the throne of God.
TO SEE INTO THE SPIRIT
Ian Johnson Papatoetoe Elim Church May 2004.
17 For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.
We are called to see into the Eternal.
In fact we are called to live in the Eternal
But the fact of the matter is that We live in the World, but we are not OF the world.
So according to the Scripture we must
1)Must Purpose to see the Eternal
2)Must have a desire to see the Eternal
3) must be hungry to seethe Eternal
Each one must believe to see and start reaching out to see.
For we cant see unless we look.
When I was young I had never heard of or even known about a bird common in NZ called the Spotless Crake
It wasn’t until I saw a picture in a bird book that I even knew that they existed. I began to read about where I
Might find one. And then I began to go to those places in search of one. And you know what. I found them.
If you care to read some scientific papers written in the 1970’s you will find my name attached to some of them.
The fact is they were right under my nose. But until I looked I didn’t see one.
In the Spirit it is the same. Jesus said “To him who seeks he shall find”
I love to hear fresh revelation and wonderful flowing of the Spirit in meetings
But unless someone seeks this revelation... in other words there must be a desire to see God move in this way.
It is not always easy to describe what God is showing us.. But if we seek then He will give us the words.
There is a power in proclaiming what God has shown us. Declaring the now vision of God.
He desires to show His Church His Glory
If we don’t reach out for more of Him. We will struggle in the days that are about to come upon the Earth.
I want to say this morning that God delights in removing the scales from our eyes.
He is causing every scale to fall off if we present our Spiritual eyes to Him.
Men & Woman are beginning to see clearly
The Glory of His countenance
The Glory of His purpose
The Glory of His plan
In fact we will walk in the realms of Glory.
You don’t need to see great visions to share them.
Share what little you see and you will receive more
Remember the story of the blind man whom Jesus prayed for twice.
First he saw men as trees walking
Then when prayed for again he saw clearly.
If we declare our vision as we see it. God will give you a clearer vision.
Too often people wait for the big vision which never comes.
Share what you see and let God make the rest clear.
The declaring releases something in your Spirit.
God wants us to dwell in the realm of vision.
The revelation of God will quicken your spirit in the hour that is coming upon the Earth.
That which we see in the natural is not necessarily the real picture of the way things really are.
Jesus on the cross at the time.... didn’t seem to be a victory
