We are moving into a season where many in the body of Christ will begin to SEE in the spirit. We are coming into the year 20/20. The Holy Spirit is opening our spiritual eyes to see through eyes of Scripture more clearly. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see more physical manifestations of blind eyes being opened to see in the natural because of what the Lord is doing in the spirit.
Seeing in the spirit, with the eyes of our spirit man, is a gift. Gifts are given to us even when we haven’t come to know Jesus.
“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” -Romans 11:29
Many children have the seer gift and it is already activated in them. Some are activated when they get older and come to know Jesus (that was me) and some when they enter into witchcraft and other “spiritual” things that are not of God. Some see things in their mind with their eyes opened while others have closed eyed visions. Some dream dreams and sometimes even physical manifestations of something supernatural that cannot be explained is seen. I have experienced all of these ways of seeing at different times. When I first came to know Christ, I had a radical encounter with two amazing closed eyed visions that set me free in the depths of my soul!
It took me a couple of years to realize that those moments can become apart of my every day life. The best way I can explain it is it’s similar to after you’ve had a flash from a camera go off and you close your eyes but you can still see that flash. It’s a different color but you can still see it. That’s how closed eyed visions happen for me. Many times I will close my eyes and the Holy Spirit begins to form something I saw in the room into something else. There is a silhouette and then I begin to seek wisdom behind what I’m seeing and what He’s saying.
It took me a little longer to realize I was having open visions because I was expecting to “see” them out in front of me. I didn’t realize I was seeing them in my mind. Then there are other times where you might describe that you could just “see it all over them” yet there wasn’t a physical manifestation of something.
The one time I saw something physically manifest that I truly know of is when I was delivered from the spirit of error. I saw the demon flee my body and leave. You can read more of my story here. It was a dark shadowy figure that flew off and out. It went straight through the walls of the building I was in.
What I really want to talk about, though, is when children see things.
Most children who are seers will see things from a very young age and adults will write it off as their imagination and never teach them how to pray and yield to Holy Spirit about what they are seeing. Many times, it is demonic and extremely terrifying for young children. They are vulnerable and don’t know how to fight. The enemy tries to destroy them early.
When I was younger, I can remember a dream I had over and over. In the dream, my brother lost all of his limbs because he cranked a four wheeler and our baby sitter shot him. I had this dream over and over. One night I got out of bed and I sat outside his bedroom crying because it was so real to me. When I came to my senses, I walked into his bedroom and ran my hands across his bed to feel for his body. He was there and I realized it was just a dream.
For adults who were terrorized by nightmares, don’t be afraid to dream again. God will restore the years that the locusts ate!
My oldest son is definitely a seer. He is our adopted son and technically my second cousin. His mom was shot and killed right in front of him. His eye gates (gateways) had seen something extremely traumatic and therefore the enemy had an open door into his life to begin terrorizing him.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. You draw light into your body through your eyes, and light shines out to the world through your eyes. So if your eye is well and shows you what is true, then your whole body will be filled with light. But if your eye is clouded or evil, then your body will be filled with evil and dark clouds.” -Matthew 6:22-23 VOICE
When she was killed, they were living in our rent house at the end of our driveway. On her birthday, just a few months after she was killed, we were pulling into the driveway and he began pointing. He was intently looking and kept pointing. I asked him what he was looking at. He was only 2 years old at the time. What he saw floored me. He saw his mother standing in the yard of the rent house covered in blood.
At the time, I did not know Jesus so I could not truly help him. I tried to not make a big deal about it. There’s lots of things he has seen. He used to see a red truck parked down at that house. I began to have conversations with him after a while and once I came to know Jesus and understand visions more, I instructed him to pray over these things he was seeing. He feels comfortable coming to me and telling me about what he is seeing because he knows I will offer help and prayer. I don’t write him off as if it’s just his imagination.
I helped him discern if his visions were from Jesus or from the devil. Was there fear and was the vision scary? If it was, we would pray, command fear to leave, ask Jesus to come, bring peace and replace those scary visions with visions from Heaven. Jesus turns every bad thing around for his good!
It has been a long time since he has had anything terrorizing come to him.
My youngest two boys have night terrors and our youngest one woke up seeing bees one night. As soon as we got him to lay still in bed with us, he woke up screaming again and clawing his way out. It was really weird. Totally out of his character to act the way he was acting but he was seeing something that was coming after him. All he knew to do was try to get away. It finally stopped that night and has never come back.
My point in writing this blog is to help you help your children discern what they are seeing. We are going to see an increase in visions and dreams in the coming years and parents MUST be equipped to help their children discern what they are seeing so the enemy does not take them down and destroy them with fear and bondage. Just because you can’t see it does not mean it’s not there. Take your children seriously and teach them to pray and hear from Jesus for themselves. Ask Jesus to replace the terror with heavenly things. Pray over their beds and rooms when they are sleeping or at school. Ask the Lord to send his angels to camp around their beds at night and when they are at school. The more trauma your child has experienced, the more the enemy has to use against them.
