“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”
I hear the Lord saying: "I want to open the eyes of the seers! I want to show the "eyes" of My Body the GLORIOUS things that are happening around the world as a result of the working of My Spirit, who is ever-present with you!"
I was awakened this morning by the Holy Spirit, who immediately began speaking to me about SEERS in the Body of Christ. I felt the Lord has a strong desire to AWAKEN the seers, many of whom have been slumbering or asleep. And I felt Him urging the seers to awaken themselves; to open their eyes so that they do not miss what He is about to do!
American Pilot Charles Lindbergh (1902-1974) was the first pilot to fly nonstop from New York to Paris, the longest solo transatlantic flight ever attempted at that time.* He flew in a monoplane called the "Spirit of St. Louis."
After an anxious, sleepless night before his departure, he endured 24 hours awake in the air before reaching Paris. He had no radio, no fuel gauge, and no navigation except for dead reckoning. He fought his way through storms, ice, and fog. He resorted to propping his eyes open with his fingers and flying within ten feet of the ocean waves to remain watchful.
When Lindbergh arrived in France, having no map to locate the airport itself, he initially mistook it for a massive industrial complex because of the GREAT LIGHTS that were all around it; tens of thousands of Parisians had gathered near the airport in a collective attempt to see his historic landing, the headlights of their cars lighting up the night.
And I hear the Lord saying that those who slumber can miss this GREAT ILLUMINATION of the Spirit if they are not careful! It has been a long journey; none of us have "maps" for what is coming in this new era, but the ILLUMINATION God is bringing right now is so bright and so glorious!"
Again I heard the Lord say: "Did not Lindbergh prop his eyes open when he flew in 1927, so as not to miss those historic moments? So I tell you, the seers must take extreme measures to see and not miss what I am doing in this hour!
Those who walk with Me will SOAR; those who listen at My gate will be rewarded with not only SIGHT but WISDOM: wisdom to navigate the times based on their own experiences of soaring with Me. Count every moment as precious, Dear Ones; count every opportunity as a critical moment in your time to see and experience the new things I am doing at the turn of this era!
The eyes of My Body are desperately needed now, for without SIGHT you will lose BALANCE. See and speak what you see, that the rest of My Body may maintain their balance in a time when attacks are being launched from many directions to throw you off-balance. For while the enemy cannot walk the highway of holiness, he would throw you off if he could, and he has dug ditches on either side of your highway to capture you if you fall.
So be careful - be CIRCUMSPECT in how you walk:
"See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is." (Ephesians 5:15-17, NKJV.)
The word circumspectly comes from the Latin circum (around) and specere (to look), and means to look cautiously, with watchfulness every way; paying attention so that one guards against surprise or danger. This is the role of biblical watchmen and your gift is essential right now."
WATCHMAN, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
"Those who LISTEN, WAIT, AND WATCH in this hour will be rewarded by being among the first to see My goodness arising in their lands. Many have prophesied doom, failure, and destruction but I tell you, if you look carefully you will see the SON arising to release a wave of GOODNESS and GLORY that is unprecedented. Do not settle! Do not think that you know what is ahead! But realize that no eye has seen, no ear has heard the things I am planning - and they are discerned and perceived by those who have eyes in the Spirit!"
'As it is written, what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived - the things God has prepared for those who love Him - THESE ARE THE THINGS GOD IS REVEALING TO US BY HIS SPIRIT.'
(1 Corinthians 2:9; emphasis mine)
'All things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”'
Seers, the Lord is releasing the Spirit of wisdom and revelation over you today. I hear Him decreeing, "EYES, BE OPENED!" For even as the Lord is EXPOSING the wickedness of the world right now, so He is REVEALING the goodness of God to those who have eyes to see!
There is an awakening happening across the Body of Christ, and I see that some of you are being called to stand "watch" in the night. I urge you to take up the Lord's invitation and pray!
Many of you are going to find that you open your eyes in the morning and see an immediate release of the wisdom and revelation of the Spirit of the Lord upon you, just as I did today. This wisdom is not just for you, but also for those whom you serve or influence. This wisdom is necessary for the Body of Christ to MOVE FORWARD AND ADVANCE in this hour, for without VISION - without the open eyes of the seers and prophets - the Body will remain stationary and will falter, becoming prey to the enemy's assaults.
MOVEMENT is essential right now, for there is protection in the movement! Stay awake!
Stay alert in the Spirit and you will see a great advancement of the goodness and glory of God that is beyond imagination!
*1927 was the same year that female aviator Amelia Earhart penned her famous poem, "Courage." Just one year after Lindbergh's record-setting flight, Amelia would become the first woman to successfully cross the Atlantic in a plane. Although only a passenger, she kept a logbook of her experiences and gained celebrity status, earning her the name: "Lady Lindy." In 1932 she crossed the Atlantic alone, nonstop, landing in Northern Ireland.
