From the beginning,
Satan has been afraid
that you will have
open spiritual eyes!

Please Open Our Spiritual Eyes, Lord!

From Genesis to Revelation, God has spoken to people through dreams and visions! But from the very beginning Satan has tried to make us afraid of using our spiritual eyes, hoping to make us too paranoid to want them opened. He has counterfeited God's visions with demonic visions, in hopes that we will fear seeing into the spiritual realm and will quench the Holy Spirit when He speaks to us through dreams and visions.

In the beginning, Satan had a great fear that Adam and Eve would have spiritual eyes to see the truth, so he perverted the truth, in hopes of making them afraid to see with open spiritual eyes. Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

In Restoration Prayer Ministry, you learn to see God better with spiritual eyes. God wants us to hunger and thirst to see Him. The pure in heart will see God! Isn't it about time we quit letting Satan steal from us? God chooses to speak and bless with visions. Gen 15:1 After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

Let us pray to have our spiritual eyes opened. The Lord Himself appeared to open the eyes of Abraham. Gen 18:1 And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day

Pray for others to see God also. God chose to warn unbelievers with visions. Gen 20:3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man's wife.

Pray for help and open eyes to see it. God wants to open our eyes to see His help for us. Gen 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

God will bridge heaven and earth to initiate a covenant in our sleep. Gen 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

God will come to warn our competitors not to harm us. Gen 31:24 And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad.

God may want to reveal our destiny to us privately. Gen 37:5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

God will give us His interpretation of a God dream. Gen 40:5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

God wants to warn our leaders and make a way for our promotion. Gen 41:1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

God wants to give us favor and new direction in visions of the night. Gen 46:2 And God spoke unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

God wants us to see His glory. Ex 16:10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spoke unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.

God wants to visit His people. Ex 24:16-17 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

God will make Himself known to us in visions and dreams. Num 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

God will open our donkey's eyes and our eyes! Num 22:31 Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

God wants us to choose to lift up our eyes and allow the Spirit of the Lord to come upon us. Num 24:2-3 And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him. 3 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

Josh 5:13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

The Holy Spirit will take us up to other places in visions. Ezek 11:24 Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me

God will give us knowledge, skill, learning, wisdom and understanding in visions and dreams. Dan 1:17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

God will hear our prayer and reveal the secret in a night visions. Dan 2:19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

God will give us visions and we are to seek for the meaning. Dan 8:15 And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man.

Angels are sent to touch us in visions. Dan 9:21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.

We are to watch to see what God will say to us. Hab 2:1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

We are to have pen and paper ready to write our dreams and visions. Hab 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

God's desire is to abundantly pour out His Spirit with dreams, visions and prophesy on all flesh.

God will interact with us about healing and prophetic words through use of visions. Acts 9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.

God will use visions to connect us with unbelievers. Acts 10:33 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.

God will set up divine appointments through visions. Acts 10:17,19 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate. 19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.

God will correct our doctrines and theology in visions. Acts 11:5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:

God will direct our ministry outreach through visions. Acts 16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

God will give us boldness and confidence to speak. Acts 18:9 Then spoke the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace.

God is ready to reveal the future when we are in the Spirit. Rev 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet

God will enable us to look and behold the Spiritual realm! Rev 4:1-2 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.

From Genesis to Revelation, God has spoken to people through dreams and visions! We can choose to invite God's Spirit to speak to us in any way that He chooses. God has not limited us to know Him only with our minds and the written logos Word of God. We can invite Him to make Himself know to us through open spiritual eyes and ears. Praise God! He wants us to know Him intimately!

God, the same yesterday, today and forever!
