OPEN THEIR EYES LORD
November 1, 2018
There is a caravan with thousands of Central American migrants headed to America. They said that they want to obtain a better life for themselves and be free from poverty and crime. Most Americans are threatened by this mass migration and see it as an invasion. As I watched the news report the Lord showed me something interesting. I heard many people saying that we are living in such dark times and it seems as if legions of demons from hell have been loosed into the earth. I want to share something that the Lord showed me today.
There is a story in 2 Kings Chapter 6. As the king of Syria was planning to attack Israel, Elisha sent a warning to him because as a true prophet and seer, the Lord revealed the plans of the enemy to him. The king of Syria didn’t understand how Elisha could know all his schemes and strategies. He called his officers together and asked them if they were revealing his secrets to Elisha. One of the officers replied: No but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words that you speak in your bedroom. The king of Syria then sent horses and chariots and his army to capture Elisha.
They went by night and surrounded the city. Elisha’s servant was terrified and he asked Elisha, What will we do now? Elisha responded: “Don’t be afraid, Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servants eyes to the spirit realm, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire, and was able to see the spiritual armies of protection all around Elisha.
Some of you could only see the darkness that seems to be encamped around you and the enemy seems to be gaining ground. There may be actual situations in your lives which may be impossible to change in the natural. You may be going through a financial crisis, a family crisis or a serious illness. The armies which are rising up against you seem overwhelming, but the Lord says, “There are more with you, than against you”. Jesus is going to open your eyes to see the hosts of heaven that are so much greater than the armies of the adversary.
The Lord is saying to fear not. He has created the heavens and the earth and there is nothing that is impossible for Him to do. (Romans 8:11) But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Then the scripture goes on to say in verse 19 that the whole earth is waiting in great expectation for the sons/daughters of God to be revealed.
The Lord says; The silver and the gold are mine. The earth is Mine, everything in it, and all who dwell within. I founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. Ask Me to open your eyes to the supernatural realm. Ask Me to open your eyes to see angels. Ask Me to open your eyes to see My plans and purposes for your families and ministries. Ask Me for revelation in the mysteries of My word. As you ask Me I will open your eyes to see My protection, my provision and My direction for your life says the Lord.
2 Kings 6:16-17
“So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha,”
“Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident,”
‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.
