Let Our Eyes Be Opened

You and I are to participate in ministry.  The focus must always be on Our Heavenly Father, not me, not you, and not some ministry.  Many ministries in the past have focused on themselves and their personalities.  In a most subtle way, they have taken the focus away from Jesus Christ and Our Heavenly Father.  They have viewed themselves as being set apart and important to FATHER’S plan as though HE has submitted to their life in some manner.  Be careful for you don’t know the private lives and thoughts of men.

All of the writings given to me on a daily basis arise out of simply listening and responding to The Holy Spirit.  I take no credit for the writings.  I am being ministered to as I write as though The Holy Spirit is speaking only to me.  I listen closely to what The Holy Spirit is saying and I make “course corrections” in response.

A major move of Our Heavenly Father has begun and you and I are meant to be partakers of the Divine Nature thus to participate in this move.  Some will not discern this move and only be observers.  However it is critical to seek The Holy Spirit and respond according to what THE SPIRIT is instructing you, without hesitation.  This will qualify us to fully participate in this great move.

Your past does not matter so don’t allow you mind to convince you of unworthiness due to your history.  Jesus’ Blood was and is sufficient to wipe away all sin so simply accept His sacrifice and move on.  The adversary would love to keep you focused on the past and miss out on fulfillment of your calling. 

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in chapter 24:

13 Later that Sunday, two of Jesus’ disciples were walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus, a journey of about seventeen miles. 14–15 They were in the midst of a discussion about all the events of the last few days when Jesus walked up and accompanied them in their journey. 16 They were unaware that it was Jesus walking alongside them, for God prevented them from recognizing him.

17–18 Jesus said to them, “You seem to be in a deep discussion about something. What are you talking about, so sad and gloomy?”

They stopped, and the one named Cleopas answered, “Haven’t you heard? Are you the only one in Jerusalem unaware of the things that have happened over the last few days?”

19 Jesus asked, “What things?”

“The things about Jesus, the Man from Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a mighty prophet of God who performed miracles and wonders. His words were powerful and he had great favor with God and the people.

The two disciples did not discern that Jesus was and is the Son of GOD.  They thought Him to be a mighty prophet instead.

25 Jesus said to them, “Why are you so thick-headed? Why do you find it so hard to believe every word the prophets have spoken? 26 Wasn’t it necessary for Christ, the Messiah, to experience all these sufferings and then afterward to enter into his glory?”

27 Then he carefully unveiled to them the revelation of himself throughout the Scripture. He started from the beginning and explained the writings of Moses and all the prophets, showing how they wrote of him and revealed the truth about himself.

28 As they approached the village, Jesus walked on ahead, telling them he was going on to a distant place. 29 They urged him to remain there and pleaded, “Stay with us. It will be dark soon.” So Jesus went with them into the village.

30 Joining them at the table for supper, he took bread and blessed it and broke it, then gave it to them. 31 All at once their eyes were opened and they realized it was Jesus! Then suddenly, in a flash, Jesus vanished from before their eyes!

32 Stunned, they looked at each other and said, “Why didn’t we recognize it was him? Didn’t our hearts burn with the flames of holy passion while we walked beside him? He unveiled for us such profound revelation from the Scriptures!”

None of the disciples truly listened to Jesus when He explained how He was going to die and be resurrected.  None of them discerned the reality even when Jesus explained it to these two disciples on the road to Emmaus.

In John chapter 4, the woman at the well did not discern who Jesus was because she asked the wrong question, how rather than who are you:

7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.

9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”

She lacked discernment.  She asked “how”, not “who”.

Discern that Jesus is among us now and expect the supernatural to operate in your life.  As we focus on walking in Agape Love, our eyes are being opened.  The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1 John chapter 3:

1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

These writings are intended to purify us in all areas without exception.  I suspect that the most challenging area for many has to do with money.  We are told the evil is rooted in the area of finances.  Each of us must overcome the fear associated with finances in order to be able to have our eyes opened and fully discern the presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ as well as our angels who are assigned to us.  Don’t let this one area disqualify you from being a partaker in this move.
