Seeing the Spiritual World!

Click here to listen to blog

An evil spirit that looked like a frog came out of the mouth of the dragon. One also came out of the mouth of the beast, and another out of the mouth of the false prophet. These evil spirits had the power to work miracles. They went to every king on earth, to bring them together for a war against God All-Powerful. But that will be the day of God’s great victory.  Remember that Christ says, “When I come, it will surprise you like a thief! But God will bless you, if you are awake and ready. Then you won’t have to walk around naked and be ashamed.”

Revelation 16:13-15

God let John see things in the Spiritual world that men cannot see with human eyes.  As you come to know Jesus better and recognize Him in the events of your day you will also come to see the battles that are going on around you in the world of the Spirit!

When a baby is born, his perception of the world around him is quite small.  At first he is only aware of his mother and his hunger and thirst.  As he grows and ultimately becomes a man his view of things expands dramatically.

It is the same with a follower of Jesus.  When you are "born again" your vision and understanding may only include your view of Jesus and your own needs.  Then as you grow, you come to see more of the world of the Spirit, until you ultimately, like John did when he wrote Revelation, begin to see how what happens in heaven and what happens on earth are totally connected .

Remember, God is working His will in everything you see around you.  And the struggles that you have are not with  "flesh and blood" but with principalities, powers and powers of the air."

"Lord Jesus, open my eyes today to see the world around me with Your eyes so that I may not despair.  Show me again that "all things" do work together for good to those who love You!  And may You, Lord Jesus be praised forever.  Amen."
