How to Activate your Spiritual Senses:
Activating your Spiritual Senses
- Open up the Door: Revelation 3:20 (His door is always open, we need to open ours) Intimacy is the key to the door. To know him, spirit of revelation/wisdom in him.
- Make yourself available: Trust
- Create a Faith Grid: “It’s Okay” by sharing experiences, not a loony toon.
- Where is the Kingdom? What is the Kingdom? (The invisible realm around you).Matthew 6:10 – pray to bring God’s realm down here on earth as it is in heaven.
- Learn to exercise your imagination: psalms 4:4 Meditate in your heart and think about the Lord. Be still (the ant running around and God is trying with a magnified glass to hit you with his glory) soaking, listening prayer, overcome the busyness of our minds.
- Heavenly Minded: Colossians 3:1-2, 2 Corinthians 4:18
- Waiting: 2 Peter 1:19 (Romans 8:11)
- Sowing: Acts 10: A giving heart, Honor the prophet in the name of the Prophet
Hebrews 5:14 But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by continuous exercise [habit] to distinguish good from evil.
We have 5 spiritual senses: We See, we hear, we taste, we touch, We smell
Think of yourself as heavenly, 2 worlds heavenly and earthly.
We need to be familiar with our 5 spiritual senses as we are with our natural senses and have the eyes of our heart opened to see in the invisible kingdom realm.
Biggest way God speaks to Todd is through visions in the imagination: Most of the voice and common realm that God speaks is in the realm of visions, dreams – the realm of the seer, open heavens, God opening our eyes of our heart to see in the spirit. Eyes of your understanding-heart-imagination.
Voice especially comes in the realm of seeing, most often in the mind, the same realm of Holy Ghost sanctified imaginations. Pay attention and discern what goes on in your imagination realm – pay attention to the impact, the amount of presence of God.
3 objectives for this lesson:
1. Discover your spiritual eye
2. Remove hindrances to the function of your spiritual senses
3. See in the spirit realm.
Open heaven, gates, open doors, open windows of heaven when God inhabits the praises of His people (Think of heaven of accessing through doors and windows, when heaven opens revelation is poured out).
Ezekiel 1:1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
Open Heavens = visions, revelation, word of the Lord
Geographical locations where people had encounters can trigger grace to enter in similar encounters when you enter those locations!
9 keys to developing a habit to see in the spirit:
1. Open up the Door with intimacy with the Father – Revelation 3:20 Here, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with me.
Invitation into experiencing Jesus in the spirit realm/prophetic encounters (Ephesians 1:17,18 experiences into the knowledge of HIM) We have the choice to open up the door. We are the ones that has to learn how to open the door, we need to hear his voice, open up the door of our heart for prophetic experiences.
Revelation 4:1 After these things, I looked; and there before me was a door standing open in heaven; and the voice like a trumpet which I had heard speaking with me before said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after these things.”
Could the door mentioned in Rev. 3:20 be connected to Rev. 4:1 – did John ever exit the spirit realm – this is connected to us opening up the door. We have to learn how to open our door, His door is already wide open, always open. 2 corinthians 3:16 says that we have a veil over our hearts, but intimacy is the key to the door and the veils removed. If you are seeking encounters just for the sake of encounters forget it. Only do it for revelation of Him, intimacy (in-to-me-see).
2.Overcome the fear – through Trust
Abba Father, daddy daddy. If my son asks for bread, I’m not going to give him a stone. If I ask my dad for an encounter to know Him, we need to trust He will keep us beyond deception. For the Father loves the son and shows him all things. Who gets to see what the Father is doing-Sons! We make ourselves available to the Fathers love, and God does the rest to open heavens and give us prophetic encounters.
3. We need to create a faith grid – sharing testimonies to build a platform expanding how its okay to have these encounters. The moment you become okay with the gift – it can lift you into acceleration.
4. Where is the kingdom? What is the kingdom? (the invisible kingdom around you) Matthew 6:9,10 “Your kingdom come” “Welcome my world, the atmosphere how it is in heaven to be like it is in your life right now” 1.It’s not like heaven here on earth currently 2.Jesus wants us to pray for it to come to make it that way! What do you expect to see when you are literally in heaven? Would it be normal see to encounter the throne as John saw it, would it be normal to speak with the saints in the cloud, would it be normal to behold the glory, would it be normal to see the angels and living creatures? No sorrow, no sickness, no disease. God’s will is that it would be on the earth right now as it is in heaven, synchronize heaven with earth. We are sitting with Christ in heavenly places, what if someone experiences heavenly view from heaven to earth. COME BOLDLY before the throne of grace (FREE ACCESS). Learning to live out of your spiritual eye appositionally, the kingdom is within you, you are a temple of the Holy Spirit, the Throne/tabernacle of God is within your heart seated with Christ in heavenly places. Heavenly places are right here. Come more consciences of the kingdom within you and around you at all times!
5. Learn to exercise your imagination – its okay to dream and okay to remember, and be still: Psalms 63:6 when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; Psalms 4:4 Meditate in your heart and think about the Lord.
The only thing that keeps you from heaven right now is: Earth Tent; Your mind, Your body, Your theology lol. Learn today through waiting on the Lord, listening prayer, we can overcome the busyness of the mind and access heaven revelation. What kind of faith do you expect to see, I expect to see and hear every day.
6. Be heavenly minded: (Colossians 3:1) If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
(Colossians 3:2) Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Permission to seek the realm of which God speaks, not just healing, favor, etc. Basically saying seek things in heavenly places (cuz where Jesus sits) The bible is encouraging you to dream and think about what Heaven is like, what do the angels look like, what does the throne look like,? 2 corinthians 4:16 – day by day we are renewed, we do not look at the things that scene but the unseen (eternal).
Permission to look at the 3rd heaven encounters, meditate on them to develop an imagination-language for you to give you grace for God to take you into your own encounters! Developing your seer language with past encounters in the bible! God wants us to exercise (habit) heavenly minded by looking and listening to other encounters, get some language, get some grid – it may be that through their door you enter into an encounter and same grace the prophet had when the verse was written. You can’t get from glory to glory without having from glory the starting point. Remembering encounters open doors to step into new realms moving from glory to glory. The testimonies of the Lord stand as an inheritance forever!
7. Waiting – 2 Peter 2:19 (Romans 8:11) 1 Samuel 3 – learn how to listen for the voice of God in his presence in stillness and quietness.
Developing Your Seer Gift (Disc 1)
How to develop, how to see in the invisible realm, how to see and cultivate out of habit your spiritual senses in the spirit realm. Reason of use-habit. Developing your seer Gift.
2 Kings 6:17
(2 Kings 6:17) Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So 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.
Those who are for us are more than those who are against us. The invisible realm was available even though he had never seen it before! The Kingdom of heaven is the invisible realm around you, everywhere you go there is world around you, the kingdom of God is at hand even though you didn’t see it before! Becoming more aware of the invisible realm, that we would see just like Elisha saw in the realm of 2 kings 6:17
- Learn and understand the different prophetic functions of the seer and prophet
- Remove the veils that blind our spiritual eyes
- Learn how to cultivate a seer lifestyle out of intimacy with Jesus
Where is your spiritual eye? Ephesians 1:18 (in Greek “eyes of your heart” translates into mind will and intellect or imagination.) Most prophetic encounters and experiences begin in the imagination – there are places for realm of being taken up and sucked up body vibrations – but some of his most profound encounters/revelation have been in the place of his imagination. 3rd heaven is a place not an experience profound experiences revelation in that place that God calls our imagination
– trust what you see when God moves on your imagination in prayer. What kind of impact is God having on your spirit/imagination.
When he initiates a scene – being in tune with the mind of Christ.
Difference is function in how you receive the revelation you give (both are prophets but different prophetic functions):
Seer Prophet – he can show us our way that we should go. Speaks from experience from dreams visions encounters angels – tends to see
Nabi Prophet – flowing thoughts tends to receive the words but not too visual with open visions, prophecies from what he knows and what he feels to know.
Called to the office of the prophet – God will give you a level of influence, platform to the nations, authority.
Uncapping prophetic wells, Uncapping the Seer Gift: to Take off the hoods of religion and tradition and “caution” of men
Remove the veil so purpose will come (black hood syndrome)-
(Isaiah 29:9) Astonish yourselves and be astonished; blind yourselves and be blind (by only seeing what you want to see)! Be drunk, but not with wine; stagger, but not with strong drink!
(Isaiah 29:10) For the LORD has poured out upon you a spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes (the prophets), and covered your heads (the seers).
Choosing your prophetic feel good words, sometimes we only hear what we want to hear:
Isaiah 30:9-10 For they are a rebellious people, lying children, children unwilling to hear the instruction of the LORD; (10) who say to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions,
10 reasons for the spirit of revelation and wisdom (Ephesians 1:17-19, 3:8-10, 16
1. To know Him
2. To know the Call of God
3. To know your inheritance
4. To know the exceeding greatness of His Power
5. To declare the manifold wisdom of God to powers and principalities
6. To be strengthened with might
7. The revelation of the Love of Christ (height, length, width, and depth)
8. To be filled with all the fullness of God
9. To have the Revelation of Christ in You
10. Cause its sweet with Jesus
6 reasons that hinder our ability to hear the voice of God and see in the invisible realm:
1. Mark 8:16)perceive and understanding is connected with remembering what God does (eyes to see but do not see, you can’t understand unless you see)
2. Mark 4:19) The cares of this world choke the gifting
3. HeBrews 3:7) Continuing to resist to the convictions of the Holy Spirit (harden heart)
4. HeBrews 3:10) Going astray in our heart (without intimacy with God)
5. HeBrews 3:12) Sin, unbelief,
6. HeBrews 5:11) Dull of Hearing because of not practicing Hebrews 5:14
Developing a habit of waiting 1-3 hours on God to listen.
Keys to developing the Seer Anointing:
John 3 – born again to see the kingdom of God now on the earth, 6 which is born of the Spirit is spirit. I am Spirit: I’m not a human being with a spirit trying to get my spirit stronger, the moment I was born again I became spirit first, I live now from heaven to earth; Not on earth trying to get to heaven. Temporarily I have an earthly tent as a pilgrim, an alien but I am spirit. Seeing the kingdom – what is the kingdom of God? – The invisible realm around you, the realm of “as it is in heaven on earth.” What is it like in heaven right now, what do you expect to see in heaven? Angels, seraphim, creatures, glory, no sorrows! Seeing the kingdom is now when born again, entering is later but you can see now! John 3:13 John 3:13 No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man.
– He made that statement on earth, how can you be in heaven while on earth. This is about hearing heavenly things. What we (the Godhead) see we want to share with you! Let me show you things that have no earthly parallel, there isn’t even language, anything in the natural for the kind of revelation that I want to give to you according to my perspective! 1. Its not like how it is in heaven on earth now 2. It can be and He wants it to be. It’s at hand, the invisible realm around you – just because you’ve never seen it doesn’t mean its not there!
John 5:17 John 5:17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.” Heaven is our model for earth, synchronizing heaven and earth is working with God! Your kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Earth needs to look like heaven looks like right now. The invisible realm around you. The kingdom of God (atmosphere of heave) would come to the earth as the will of God was being done on the earth. God can only entrust you with His kingdom to the level of your obedience. Bring Heaven.
John 5:19 Therefore, Yeshua said this to them: “Yes, indeed! I tell you that the Son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he (the son)sees the Father doing; whatever the Father does, the Son does too.
How did Jesus see what the Father do? How can you be in heaven on earth? God can only entrust to you His kingdom to the extent you hear and obey.
The whole point of seeing/hearing is to be obedient to His well and synchronizing heaven and earth. –John 5:30 I can’t do a thing on my own. As I hear, I judge; and my judgment is right; because I don’t seek my own desire, but the desire of the one who sent me.
What heaven looks like eternally and bringing glimpses of it on here –
Where does Christ sit? In heavenly places? Where are heavenly places? Heaven has places/realms. Heavenly places is literally where Christ sits at the right hand of the Father, blessed heavenly inheritances in heavenly places. That means I can only access heavenly places when I’m in the spirit. Call forth those that be not, (its not that they are not, they just are not in your realm at that instant in the natural, but they are in the invisible) so you bring it from heaven to earth. Activate the spiritual blessings in heavenly places when you are in the spirit. Christ dwells within you! Could it be that Christ lives in you with you carrying Heavenly Places! A whole new way of thinking.
So How much can you see? John 5:20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he does; and he will show him even greater things than these, so that you will be amazed.
Faith and expectation that you as a son who the Father loves will show him ALL THINGS! Simply model on earth according to the council blueprint I see in heaven that the Father shows me!
PAPA YAHWAY WANTS TO SHOW YOU DETAILS AND SHOW YOU ALL THINGS, JUST BELIEVE AND ASK HIM!
How much do you expect to see? Friendly council of God – inward secrets of the Lord.
Wisdom to rightly explain the revelation you receive!
Anointing of Hebrews 4:12 (William Branum) For the Word of God is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Anointing of revelation to discern peoples thoughts and hearts… Jesus knew motives.
If you don’t have a language you can’t begin to communicate – b/c right now the level you are operating in now you have no grid for the secrets of My world I want to share with you!
Wait on the Lord – Position yourself in faith –See what happens!
