Seeing in the Spirit Realm, with Doug Overmyer – SOZO EP0004

What does it mean to be a Seer? How does being a Seer relate to the gift of Prophecy or Word of Knowledge? How do we use the Seer gift to love and serve others and advance God’s Kingdom of Love?

These are just some of the issues we cover in this “eye-opening” talk… Oh yea, and we talk about angels and demons and spiritual warfare and have many fun and epic stories.

Isn’t it interesting to think about how we as humans are all spirits having a temporary physical experience? Some of us can “see” better with our spirit eyes and so are meant to be the eyes of the body of Christ. Check this following Scripture out!

One Body with Many Parts

“The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one whole body. So it is with the body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles,e some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into one body by one Spirit, and we all share the same Spirit.

Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part. If the foot says, “I am not a part of the body because I am not a hand,” that does not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “I am not part of the body because I am not an eye,” would that make it any less a part of the body? If the whole body were an eye, how would you hear? Or if your whole body were an ear, how would you smell anything?

But our bodies have many parts, and God has put each part just where he wants it. How strange a body would be if it had only one part! Yes, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye can never say to the hand, “I don’t need you.” The head can’t say to the feet, “I don’t need you.”” (1 Corinthians 12:12-21 NLT)

This just made so much sense to me! I’m sure most of us have a good relationship with our own eyes, right? I mean we don’t go around stabbing our eyes or ignoring or belittling  them. We use them and depend on them. We cherish and protect them.

Since the Seer is an eye in Christ’s body, it would be foolish for the rest of the body to persecute or belittle (or medicate and institutionalize) their own eye, right? It is also foolish to be jealous of them. Be who God created you to be! God has put each part just where he wants it!

More Scriptures we mention in our talk:

“Then, after doing all those things,
I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will dream dreams,
and your young men will see visions.”
-Dreams and Visions (Joel 2:28)

Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that those who do not see may gain their sight, and the ones who see may become blind.” Some of the Pharisees who were with him heard this and asked him, “We are not blind too, are we?”  Jesus replied, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin, but now because you claim that you can see, your guilt remains.” John 9:39-41

Let’s honor our eyes and learn how to use all our gifts the way God intended.

A Prayer For You!

I ask that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him. I ask that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know the hope of His calling, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and the surpassing greatness of His power to us who believe. (Ephesians 1:17-19)
