Seeing Beyond the Naked Eye and Living Beyond the Flesh

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!" - Matthew 6:22-23
The eye, it is a very fascinating part of our body. It gathers the light and converts it into brain signals so that it can be a picture. Without the light, we cannot see because light is the substance that our eyes use in order to create a picture. Our spirit also do have its own eyes, eyes to see the spiritual realm. It also collects light and turns it into a picture. Without light, it cannot also see.

Now if we see by the Spirit then we would have seen everything that the angels are doing, the unseen evidences created by faith and also the disgusting works of Satan, yes, the disgusting works of Satan. Do we know that most of the human population are spiritually blind? Why is that so? Because Satan does not want a person to see what he is doing, he does not want you to see that he is stealing from you, he does not want you to see that he is killing you and destroying you. He lures us into his temptations and what we think is "good" is actually a trap. Of course those blinded persons cannot see it as a trap and that's just how Satan works. Now, one key to a good spiritual life is by opening our spiritual eye.

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
     But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. - 2 Corinthians 4:3-7

Now if we see in spirit CLEARLY, we would just realize how bad this world is because of Satan. We would see how they work and we will be disgusted to what we could see. We would see how our unbeliever friends are getting severed by the demonic spirits he/she posses. Of course we should have compassion over them. Seeing beyond the flesh is what makes Christians extraordinary.

Seeing in the spirit requires spiritual healing and spiritual light. Spiritual healing begins when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. He opens our spiritual eyes together with the rebirth of our spirit. With His love in us, we CAN now start to see. BUT how can we tell what is in the spiritual world when we does not even know one color? All we know is black and no more since we are born spiritually blind in this world. How can you differentiate "spiritual green" from "spiritual yellow" if you did not yet learned the "spiritual color wheel"? The solution: start LEARNING BY THE SPIRIT! Read the Word of God because He is the light gets into your spiritual eyes and reflects every color in the spiritual realm. With your eyes open and with the knowledge to distinguish spiritual colors, we can grow spiritually with ease.

Color is the quality of an object with respect to light. Now, God is our light, and everything in the spirit (its quality, its value, its virtue, its character, etc.) will be judged according to this Light. By this light we can see clearly in the spiritual realm. THE SPIRITUAL REALM IS THE "TRUER" WORLD, it is where we should really live in. It is more real than the physical world we know. Seeing in this world is seeing in our more real life and living in this world requires us also to speak in spiritual language (speaking in tongues), learning in the spirit, bathing in the spirit, eating in the spirit, sleeping in the spirit (soaking) and desiring every spiritual gift that God is more than willing to give us if we truly desire.

I hope that this post is an EYE OPENER to everyone. (Please don't forget to eat, drink and sleep in the physical world :P).

I would also recommend this page which also discusses about spiritual blindness.
