Demystifying the Eyes of Your Heart

Excerpt from upcoming book: Demystifying the Seer by Aspen Morrow

The Eyes of Your Heart

 

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of his calling, and what are the riches of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe!” Ephesians 1:18-21

 

The purpose of seeing in the spirit, seeing with the eyes of our heart, or spirit, and having the eyes of our heart enlightened is mostly found in this great verse. The purposes I have found in Scripture and the fruit of my experiences are:

 

  • So that we know the hope of His calling on our life.
  • The riches of His calling: on our life, unto Salvation, and unto the good works He has prepared for us in advance to do.
  • That we don’t have to wait until death to see the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.
  • And so that we may see the greatness of His Power toward us who believe.
  • That we may see that greater is He who is with us, than he who is in the world.
  • To see how much the enemy is outnumbered (2 Kings 6:17)
  • To see and expose the fiery darts and schemes of the enemy.
  • To grow our faith.
  • To see what we are to pray over people
  • To give them messages from the Father about how He sees them.
  • To equip and encourage the Saints.
  • To see what God sees
  • To decree His will on the earth
  • To bind and loose
  • To avoid deceptions
  • To grow in discernment
  • To heal, and set captives free
  • To partner with the plans and blueprints of God
  • To see how high and wide and wonderfully He thinks
  • To expose the plans of the enemy
  • To see and understand how much He loves us and knows us
  • To increase intimacy with the Father
  • To discern good and evil

 

2 Kings 6:16-17 Clearly shows that not all spiritual sight is from the enemy. “’Don’t be afraid’, the prohet answered. ‘Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.’ And Elisha prayed, ‘Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.’ The Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

 

Oh how I love this verse. My eyes were once opened to see an epic battle in the spirit, and as I saw my friend in the spirit, she was wielding a sword with her amputated arm [in the natural she is missing an arm, but her spirit man did not seem to notice], and dressed in full battle gear. Put on the full armor of God! For we do not fight against flesh and blood! There is a real enemy, and your spirit never sleeps but is right now, currently, in a battle you cannot yet see. Fight the good fight. And pray that the Lord opens the eyes of your heart that you may see and believe that He is the author and finisher of our faith.

 

Spiritual Encounters in the Bible

 

It is not always clear whether people were seeing things in the ‘natural’ or ‘in the spirit’, in the body, or out of the body, but it is for sure that most of the people in the Bible would be on Schizophrenic meds for all the encounters we would dub hallucinations today. . We are drugging our Seers at an alarming rate, when we really need to turn back to God’s psychiatry and not the witchcraft of Pharmakeia. Sorry, but God’s opinions and mine are usually not popular. Please spend some time looking up these verses, asking God to speak to you about how spiritual sight differs from third eye sight. How do these stories make you feel? How do the things of God differ from the things of the world or the enlightenment the enemy promises? Does it bring separation from God and shame, like the encounter in the Garden of Eden, or does it make you hunger and thirst for His Righteousness, so that all these things can be added unto you?

 

Using the eyes of our heart, God speaks to us through Dreams, Visions, Trances and many more ways. I do not dream nearly as much, but I have multiple kinds of waking visions, and have had several trances, some more intense than others. Some people primarily dream. When I do dream, I can often tell the different between a prophetic dream and just a dream originating from me, my mind, or my imagination. According to James Goll in his book, The Seer, he does well to remind us that the goal of any encounter is to enhance our love for Jesus and further our understanding of God’s purposes and plans.

 

Study these verses:

Numbers 12:6-8

2 Kings 6:16-17

Joel 2:28

Genesis 15:12-17

Genesis 20

Genesis 31:24

The book of Daniel

Matthew 2:12

Matthew 27:19

 

These verses and many more in the Bible show that God speaks to the prophets, to unbelievers, to men, to women, both in the Old and New Testaments. Some of them see and hear in dreams, some in open visions, audible voices, or fell into a trances. God is the same yesterday today and forever and is no respecter of persons. He will use any imperfect person He chooses because that is all He has to work with. I am no different. In my past I was a liar, a thief, a fornicator, a drunkard, and a descendent from at least third generation Masonic cult members, and many more marks I am sure the enemy had on me during the decade I turned my back on God. But I was a sinner, and now I am an heir of Salvation. Praise God! He makes all things new and uses whom He chooses.

 

Activation:

“Open my eyes, Lord, so that I may see. Help me to increase in the gift of discernment and discerning spirits. Lead me to test everything. Help me to know whether something comes from the demonic realm, the soulish realm, or through the Holy Spirit and your Kingdom of Righteousness. Flan the flame of my desire for the Word, for Holiness, for purity, for letting no unclean thing enter my eyes, my thoughts, or my imagination. Let me cast down every vain imagination that sets itself against You.

Demystifying the Third Eye for Seers

Third Eye Sight vs the Eyes of Your Heart

(Excerpt from upcoming book: Demystifying the Seer by Aspen Morrow)

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 (NIV, emphasis mine)

The third eye is also called the mind’s eye, eye of time, or the inner eye. It is a mystical, esoteric ‘invisible’ eye which is said to provide vision, sight, and perception beyond ordinary sight. It is claimed that you can open your third eye by focusing on your third eye chakra, meditating, choosing the right surroundings, flooding it with light, emptying your mind or focusing only on a meditation object, picking a mantra like “um”, and repeating until you “see something”. A list of reputed benefits to opening the third eye that new agers tout include: psychic abilities, telepathy, vivid/lucid dreaming, more effective astral projection, better sleep quality, enhanced imagination, enabled aura viewing, seeing spiritual guides, seeing energy, and seeing with eyes closed.

 

Some people describe seeing a ‘tunnel-like portal or worm hole’ inside their head. It can also feel like opening the ‘eyes of your imagination’, but often more vivid. Seeing with the third eye is often described in similar or same terms as those of us who see in the spirit, including a screen in your mind, or a projector screen that displays images several inches or feet out in front of you. The biggest difference is not so much how the third eye works in comparison to the eyes of the heart (spirit or eyes of understanding) so much as what people tend to see. In my experience, the third eye is much more prone to being deceived. I will talk in the next chapter about when I saw demons disguised as angels and how once you see that, as clear as anything I have seen in the natural, you will be very cautious about everything mystical! Some of the things the third eye sees, according to those who have experienced it, include seeing speed of thought, colors that don’t exist in the natural realm, images of aliens, spirit guides, demons, ascended masters, the astral plane, silver chords, and geometric and mathematical patterns, and psychedelic shapes.

 

People describe a sort of x-ray vision at times, seeing into things like bodies, souls and objects. They can often see things from the past, see into the future, and even into other dimensions and universes. Images seen can be digital, in cartoon form, solid, opaque, or felt and not seen at all.

 

If you have tampered with the new age, or invoked the opening of your third eye, I recommend going through the activation prayer in this chapter.

 

The biggest problem with third eye sight is that people often use it as a psychic gift, become mediums, and converse with beings that do not have their highest good, or Salvation, in mind.

 

Leviticus 19:31 “Don’t turn to psychics or mediums to get help. That will make you unclean. I am the Lord your God.”

 

There are about twenty-two verses that address psychics, mediums, and the tricks of the enemy. Scripture is clear that psychics are evil and an abomination to the Lord. We, as Believers, are not to mess with horoscopes, tarot cards, palm readings, initiating contacting deceased loved ones, or intentionally opening the third eye. The third eye can be an access point for the enemy, a satanic portal, or an opening to the astral plane and demonic realms. I have personally witnessed in the spirit (and natural) that when a person is hypnotized with a light machine, placed on the forehead, it created a spiritual portal through which demonic entities could more easily enter the mind. Flooding the third eye with light is another way it is said to be activated. The sixth chakra and kundalini awakening are tied to the serpent, and we need to flee. Although many people think seeing in the spirit and activating your third eye are the same, they are not! I also do not agree with many Christian’s teaching on “how to purify and activate the third eye.” God has clearly shown me the Eyes of the Heart and the Eyes of our Spirit man are the same, but the third eye is the counterfeit, occult, and easily prone to deception and seeing what the enemy wants you to see. Beware. [Example: April 20, 2014: Evangelist John Ramirez with Shannon Davis of Omega Man Radio, “How to Purify and Activate your Third Eye.”]

 

For further proof this is sourced in the occult, may be a demonic portal, and should be renounced, the third eye is called the All Seeing Eye in Freemasonry, Shiva in Buddhism, the Eye of Clairvoyance in Hinduism, and the Eye of Horus or the Eye of Osirius in Egyptian mythology. People who use the third-eye-sight are also often called seers, which is why I am starting with this complicated topic to make a clear differentiation. God commanded His people to be separate from the Egyptians’ practices. We see in the Word what happened when Moses and the Egyptian sorcerers both turned their staffs into serpents. Today’s Christians would have called Moses new age and demonic, surely. His intimacy and obedience to God was the secret to his operating in the spirit, in signs, wonders and miracles, and it is our key also.

 

Part of how I know how I see in the spirit is not via third eye sight, as I have never had any experiences similar to my new age friends. They are very, very different, with few similarities. I have seen demons disguised as angels, and universes, and dimensions, and heavenly realms and places, but I have never seen spirit guides, or animal spirits, or the astral plane, or aliens. So, my other dilemma was that I never did anything to activate my spiritual sight. I had to figure it out with the Lord. He is the one who called me a Seer, and confirmed it (see preface), so I am going to go with what He says about me, not what men say. I started seeing in the spirit about the same time I was saved, around age three, and continued off and on my entire life. ALL if it was God-initiated. I do not see anything unless He shows it to me. For some people they can control their seeing in the spirit, they can look to see, or turn it off, it just does not work that way for me. I have asked to see something, and the Lord has shown it to me. Taking a stance that all spiritual sight is ‘of the devil’ or ‘none of it is’, is dangerous.

 

One time, the Lord used an amazing Christian Missionary Alliance pastor in my life to help me when I shared with him things I was seeing in the spirt. He was gracious and did not rebuke me or condemn me like others have, but he instead was used by God to deliver a timely and profound message in my life. He told me a story I had never heard before, although I have since then heard it many times. When the FBI want to spot counterfeit bills, they don’t go studying the counterfeit. They spend so much time handling real money, that when the counterfeit shows up, it is obvious. The next day another lady started to tell me this same story (confirmation). The Lord spoke to me and said, “Study me alone, I am the real thing”. Spend so much time in the Word, in the spirit, in prayer, in worship, in prayer, in fasting, in the Word, that the enemy just looks like plastic flowers when he shows up, and I am not talking about the ones that look real, I am talking about the cheap dollar store kind people put on tombstones. I will let the dead bury the dead, I am spending time with the Living God, who smells like flowers instead of Sulphur.

 

There is a saying circulating in charismatic church circles that we need to ‘redeem’ things for the Kingdom that the enemy has stolen, and that ‘God’s ability to protect us is greater than the enemy’s ability to deceive’. I both agree and strongly disagree with this statement. I think it is actually very dangerous doctrine, maybe even a doctrine of demons. We do NOT need to study the new age to understand God, or to redeem things that are lost. These attempts to redeem Yoga and things like Reiki are playing with abominations. We need to flee far from the enemy, and study only the original. YHWH, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God are perfectly capable of revealing what should be redeemed, and we need to spend so much time with them that the voice of the enemy or his liars is obvious. His tactics to deceive and thousands of years of practice often outperform our discernment, and we need to be continually plugged into the Source. Quit running to the new age to drag things out in an attempt to redeem them. Believers also need to ask the Lord directly if they are concerned with something spiritual that they think may be new age, it may instead be His original that the enemy has counterfeited. Remember, they often look the same. What source are you plugged into?

 

The bottom line for those who do not know Christ, is that accessing the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven is not permitted, including and especially inducing third eye sight.

 

Matthew 13:11: “To you is has been granted, to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them is has not been granted.”

 

In John 10:1, Jesus says, “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.”

 

Activation:

 

“Abba Daddy, I come boldly to your throne in humble repentance. I confess that I have gone to look for the original among the counterfeit. I repent for being a thief and a robber and trying to gain access to mysteries in any other way than through Jesus, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. I will only come to the Father through Him from now on. I turn and look only to you. I accept you Jesus into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior. I only want to seek Your face, Your will; I only want to do what I see you do, see what you show me, and say the words you put in my mouth. I repent for seeking spiritual things among the new age. I repent for trying to open my third eye. As an act of my will I declare it closed in Jesus’ name, and seal it with salve, oil of Joy, and the Blood of the Lamb. Let me gaze on no unclean thing. Remove all scales, all veils, that hinder me from becoming like a little child and seeing the Kingdom. I ask Jesus to forgive my sins, all my iniquities; I receive His payment, His blood sacrifice on the cross. I denounce satan and all of his deceptive practices. I wash my eyes, all of them, body, soul and spirit, in the living water that proceeds from the throne of grace, and cover them with the Blood of the Lamb. Purify my eye gates, wash them clean. [You can even wash water over your eyes and forehead as a prophetic act] I ask that any deceivers be judged in your courts and sent where you will. Your will be done in me Lord, your Kingdom come! Send your guardian angels around me, around my heart, mind, soul, spirit. Lead me not into to temptation, deliver me from evil and deception. I repent, I confess, I turn, and I will clean my house [physical dwelling and body temple] of any ungodly thing, all idols, all gods, and replace in those rooms Your Word, your Spirit, ceaseless prayer, worship, and I will magnify Your name alone. I repent for seeking the signs and wonders and not the Giver of the signs. Forgive us for being a wicked generation and let us only seek You, intimacy with You, and obedience to You. In Jesus’ precious Name and Blood, Amen.”

Vision: Heaven’s Candy Store

“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:1-3 NASB).

(Watercolor by Andy Sewell)

In the middle of a worship service at a Nancy Coen conference in December, 2017, part of the room fell away, and I felt Daddy reach down and take my hand, pulling me (my spirit?) up quickly. I had the sensation of floating into a room without walls, but only saw huge, like 20 foot tall, old-fashioned gumball machines lined up in front of me. Still holding my hand, (I seemed to be about the age of 8 all of a sudden), I heard the Father say, “You feel so blessed by these people, and so happy to be here, and I know you want to give them something in return, so pick one.” I looked at the choices, and had no clue what to pick! “What should I pick, Daddy?” I could not see His face, shrouded in light, but he leaned over to whisper in my ear conspiringly: “How about the ‘goody-goody gumdrops’?”

At this, I laughed out loud, and even heard myself laugh in the worship room simultaneously. It was a tender, sweet, inside joke. My earthly Dad says this occasionally, and he got it from his father, who used to say, “oh Goody Goody Gumdrops!” while taking me to the zoo, or Children’s Museum of Indianapolis as a child. It always made me laugh. God’s voice was just so playful and tender when He suggested it, and I knew the choice was still mine to make. “The gumdrops it is”, I replied, and there appeared a gold coin in my dress pocket: reading on one side: “Free”, and on the other side, “Paid”. I knew everything in this store was part of my inheritance, cause Jesus’ blood had already paid the price. I took the coin, put it in the machine, turned the knob, and gumdrops starting raining on everyone in the room in the Spirit! They were large, oversized, and drenched each person in sweet swirling rainbow colors. The sugar on them sparkled like diamonds as they absorbed into everyone, smiles erupting all around. I did not know what it all meant, but it was a lovely, sweet, and an intimate moment with my King. He loves to give good gifts to His children.

The next day, after the last session, I was alone for a few minutes in my mountain cabin bunk-room. “So, how do you feel about this weekend, Papa asked?” Without thinking, I blurted out: “I loved it! I feel like a kid in a candy store!” Realizing what I had just ‘accidentally’ said, we both laughed, remembering the experience He had given me the day before based on feelings I did not realize I even had yet! My biggest reason for feeling so delighted at the conference was because the whole weekend was spent around people like me: people whom it had taken me my whole life to meet: people who hear from God regularly, like a close friend, or people who have dreams or visions they know are from the Lord, or have been taken in the Spirit by the Lord, or who regularly spend time in His Presence in Heaven as if that is just a normal every-day occurence. It should be. They are a People who walk in the Gifts of the Spirit, the Power and Might and Counsel of the Godly, who long for relationship above all else.

I am awed at Nancy Coen’s decades of walking in the supernatural, faith-filled obedience to the Savior she loves so much. Like I am just beginning to be, she has been ridiculed, shunned and labeled a heretic by people who do not understand her unique walk with the Lord. Let us be sweet, like she is, to those who persecute us for His name’s sake, especially when they are our dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

That weekend, I had at least a dozen experiences of God/Jesus/Holy Spirit talking to me about things, showing me things, explaining things even while I was taking notes, and four open visions at the conference. It was quite amazing! But the candy store with Daddy is one of my faves. I love how Abba Daddy is so fun, humorous, intimate and personal with His children, yet so Holy, awe-inspiring and worthy of our Love and Praise. One minute He can be a Dad, the next a stern Father, then a Husband, Friend, and Righteous Judge. He is my Creator, Inventor, my All in All.

I still don’t have all the answers as to why gumdrops fell on people in the Spirit, or what that gift meant, but I am sure He will tell me in due time. Other than the candy watercolor picture above by Andy Sewell, which I do not yet know the story behind, I do not know if others have had any encounters with a similar vision. If you have, please share!

Get to know Him, He so wants to be close to you, and walk with you, and talk with you, even though He already knows everything about you!

“Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!” Psalm 34:8 (NLT)

Demystifying Gemstones & Crystals Biblically

“For Wisdom is better than jewels; And all desirable things cannot compare with her.” —  Proverbs 8:11

Lord, give us wisdom on this topic, give us discernment. Help us to honor you in all our ways, help us to seek after Your mysteries in Your way, not our own, and touch not any unclean thing. Amen.

I highly recommend reading Part i blog first to not take this article out of context and get some helpful background on how sound/prayer is applied to objects Biblically and scientifically. These are some serious subjects to delve into in just a few blog posts, so please don’t label me a heretic for attempting to shed some Biblical and theoretical light on this subject I get asked about a lot.

Do you ever see Christians wearing Gemstones and Crystals like New Agers do? No? Sometimes? Not really? Why not? Have you ever felt drawn to a stone, or repelled by it? Do you know why? Did you know that the High Priest in the Old Testament was literally adorned with them by the order and design of God Himself? Did you know that the Bible has over 38 verses about them? And Heaven is built with them? And God made them? Then why in the world do New Agers glom onto them? Just a few of the questions I mull over in my head, as my work takes me into all the world, especially around alternative healers who wear crystals. Some I am actually pulled towards, and some repelled by like a backwards magnet! I seek to touch on this topic here, but I am just exploring the surface, and am asking the Lord to reveal the answers, so please do the same if there is anything in this article you disagree with; I am not claiming this as gospel truth or pertinent to Salvation. I am just forever curious, and love to delve into topics others won’t touch, with aid of the Holy Spirit (and some of my own conjectures).

There are even people who claim to have had Gemstones appear in thin air and land all over their houses or churches! I know a few of these people personally. Wow, if this is genuinely from Him, what a mighty God we serve! Why would He do that? If authentic, I think it is because He is Jehovah Jireh, our Provider, and He loves to give good gifts to His kids.

When I was a child, I seemed to be so drawn to rocks; I would suck on them as a toddler, collect them, notice them as jewelry, and even had a beautiful natural rock crystal formation that looked just like a unicorn (unicorns are talked about in both the Bible and rumored to be mentioned in the satanic bible also, but I am not going to go digging there for proof!), with a little crystal horn and all! Then, in the 80’s the Assembly of God church we attended was preaching on cleansing homes of anything even remotely New Age or from the “Age of Aquarius”. Dutifully, my parents got rid of their old records, smashing them in the living room, throwing out their Santa-Clauses and Mrs. Santa too. Then my collection: the cabbage patch doll, the unicorn crystal, rock collection and every other unicorn they could find, pajamas stuffed animals and all! This was very traumatic to me as a child, but I in turn did not allow any of these things into my home until a few of them more recently.

SO what is UP with gemstones and Crystals? Crystals AMPLIFY power and sound and act as a recorder, conductor and megaphone!

If you were to hold a tuning fork up to your ear and strike it, you could hear the sound. By resting the tuning fork ON a crystal and striking it, the sound is turned UP! I have actually seen and heard this demonstrated.

Crystals in computer and TV displays. 

Some phonographs use quartz crystals to convert vibrations of the stylus (needle) into electric impulses. For electronic use, a quartz crystal must be flawless. Most of the crystals now used in electronics are synthetic. Rock crystal is used to make lenses and prisms for optical instruments.

The way a quartz crystal benefits a circuit is that mechanically the crystal acts much like a tuning fork, with a natural resonant frequency, and the piezoelectric property allows that to be coupled into an electronic circuit.

Crystals can relay information physically on a Liquid Crystal Display monitor, like an eReader, TV, or computer monitor.  This is what LCD stands for. So how does this have a spiritual application, or even should it?

Crystals housing demons & use in the New Age 

I do not study the counterfeit, and won’t even go research it, as I do not want to open myself up to it, but there is information that I glean just from certain friends or reading testimonies of people who have been set free from occult practices, which I find the best way to learn. I find a certain amount of information helpful in leading people to the Truth from the counterfeit power of the New Age.

The role of crystals in electronics is well known and Quartz crystals are used to control the frequencies of oscillators, and as circuit elements. Since crystals are good for transmitting electronic frequencies, it may be that occultists assume that they must also be good for transmitting psychic frequencies, vibrations and healing power. The New Age now has incredible body of (likely) folk lore regarding the supposed healing and energizing powers of crystals, even attributing them to clearing and healing the “chakra energy centers”.

But I feel it goes much deeper than that, both for good and evil!

In a good article by the Christian Research Institute, (CRI) (one I both agree and disagree with), they say:  “Though we do believe in demonic energy that can work through occult practices, we see no reasonable basis to hold that crystals have inherent properties that make them especially good transmitters of demonic power.”

I disagree with this quote, based on scientific research and the occultic use of crystals and gemstones, and testimonies of those set free from the New Age, I believe they can “house” and “amplify” demons and their supposed power.

Here is an excerpt from a very good book, Betrayed by Her Guardian Angel (pg 189) that gives unique insight from someone who was set free from the occult regarding crystals she was given for “psychic energy protection”.

“Hold this stone, and tell me what you feel,” Rhonda said.

Eve took the purple stone that was offered, and closed her eyes to shut out distractions. In the hand holding the stone, she felt a slight tingling sensation. “I’m not sure what I’m crystalsfeeling,” she said. “It feels like a faint vibration.”

“That’s the stone’s natural energy,” Rhonda answered. “It’s good that you can feel it. That tells me you’re very sensitive. Now give me the stone. Stand facing me, and watch.”

While Eve watched and listened, Rhonda did a ritual of sorts, calling the energy of the Spirit of the East into the stone. “In the East, the sun rises,” Rhonda intoned. “It is the direction of renewal and rebirth. The Spirit of the East draws his energy from fire. I call upon the Spirit of the East to infuse this stone with the energy of fire…”

“Now hold the stone and tell me what you feel,” she said.

Eve took the stone and closed her hand over it as before, then closed her eyes to concentrate on what she was feeling. The “slight vibration” had increased a hundred fold. “That’s amazing!” she cried. “It feels like the stone has electricity running through it!”

The author also talks in the book about other spirits being called into stones, using amethysts to “establish energy protection pyramids”, feeling them tingle, vibrate and cause electricity to run up the arm, making it almost go numb, “warming sensations”, and “cobweb sensations of negative energy”. None of this seems like a harmless piece of rock, but sounds like a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall by rejecting the cornerstone, which is Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:8 for context).

Then why did God make them?

(more revelation on this coming later, based on a glimpse the Lord gave me that I am still seeking confirmation on and permission and timing to release).

Now, what about those stones on the High Priest’s garments? Biblically, this is reflected in the vest worn by the High Priest in the Hebrew religion. According to best translations, the author of Exodus 39 states that sardius, topaz, carbuncle, emerald, sapphire, diamond, jacinth, agate, and amethyst were all embedded into this vest. The High Priest Aaron would use this chestpiece (called an ephrod) when approaching the physical manifestation of God’s glory on Earth – to offer people’s prayers to God in the Holy of Holies, beyond the veil. What physical and spiritual properties were imbued in these crystals and rocks, if any? This vest carried spirtual symbolism, was used for Divine guidance, (Ummin and Thummim), and possibly even as a bridge between Heaven and earth realms in meeting God beyond the veil (more on that later).

The gemstones listed as part of the priest’s breastplate are similar (or same?) to the 12 stones that the Bible describes in the Book of Revelation as comprising the 12 gates to the wall of the holy city that God will create at the end of the world, when God makes a “new heaven” and a “new earth.” And, because of the translation issues of precisely identifying the exact breastplate stones, the list of stones may be entirely the same.

Different Bible scholars have speculated, and ultimately, it’s not that important, because they have been replaced by a Solid Rock on Whom we stand: Jesus. (3)”  

Jesus is our living Stone, and we, in Christ, are also living stones! (1 Peter 2:4-8) We, as extensions of the apostles to go into all the world, are the rock upon which Jesus has built His church. We are the temple of the Most High God, his dwelling place. We do not want to be, or pay tribute to, the dwelling place of demons!

“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

SO, What NOT to do with Crystals, Rocks and Gemstones: 

DO not treat them as good luck charms, omens, a talisman, or ascribe to them power, honor, healing properties, “fortune cookie” meanings, or “energies”. God is our healer, period.

DO not carve or buy a graven idol image made of rock, stone, crystal, wood, glass, ect. This includes totem souvenirs from Africa, Alsaka or Hawaii!  (The unicorn-shaped crystal, although naturally formed, may have been considered a graven image, by the Lord, I do not know! If in doubt, don’t, just don’t!).  Graven idols and idol worship (even in yoga) is serious business to the Lord and should be given a complete ‘hands off’ approach!

“You shall have no other gods before Me. “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.” Exodus 20: 3-5

So what can we do with gemstones, crystals, and rocks?

Remember to never take my word for anything, but go directly to God and to the Word first and foremost!

One option is to just leave them alone if you have any fear, discernment, or reticence about what is good and right and what is not. One person may have permission from God to wear a certain pendent, and the next may not! There should not be any fear or condemnation around them, however, just obedience.

Worship the Creator, not the creation. Glorify God that He is creative, loves beauty, and made them. Thank Him for them as a gift from above, and recognize that they are symbolic in Heaven and on earth as adornments in crowns, rewards, used on priestly garments, and can be a symbol of marriage covenant on earth. But recognize that it is the fruits of the spirit which are the real gems in the Kingdom, and gold is merely paver stones. We are to cast our crowns before Him and trade everything for intimacy and relationship with Him!

According to CRI, “Demonic energy can work through people’s belief in magical objects.” So do not put any faith in them! Trust in God alone.

Want to buy crystals, precious stone jewelry, or keep ones you may have? I would just burn any that have been used in anything occult-like. Did they just come straight from the rock shop but could have been cursed? Cleanse them from any sin or power that may be attached, covering them in the Blood of Jesus, dedicate them to the Lord, thanking Him for His creation, and then anoint them for His purposes and Glory. Let them serve as a reminder to ascribe all Glory to His name. The power of the Holy Spirit does not need any amplification from a crystal, like the enemy tries. God has given me peace about cleansing and dedicating certain things, like my used wedding ring, and keeping them. Ask Him about any items in question. Anoint the object with oil (see part i) and pray over it:

“Lord, we come boldly into your courts with Praise and petition the Throne of Grace.  Lord forgive us for touching any unclean thing, and we renounce in the name of Jesus, any involvement with the occult, or idolatry, or witchcraft, or the New Age. I declare that this object spiritually transitioned into your secret place and now abides under your shadow. I repent on behalf of every sin committed with this object (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). I plead the blood of Jesus over this (jewelry, rock, crystal, ect) and command in the name of Jesus any attachments to it to leave and go. I now speak to every spirit that has taken up habitation in this dwelling place and I take authority over you according to my authority in Jesus Christ. I cast you out, and command you to go to where the Lord Jesus sends you. We anoint this object in the name of the Lord, by faith, and consecrate it to you, inscribing on it the names of your people, your dwelling place. May it serve as a symbol that we are living stones, and we give all honor, and praise, and glory, to the One who made it. Thank you for it’s beauty, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”

I hope this sheds some light on how Christians should not be messing around with stones as omens or good luck charms, healing cards regarding stones, giving them credit for healing powers, or energies, chakra alignment, or especially not invoking spirits into them! Just the other day, a Christian business coach was giving out stones with healing property cards, and I just shake my head. “Forgive us Lord, for we often know not what we do.” Hopefully now you do know, and will not be afraid, but be shrewd, innocent, and discerning! You are a Daughter/Son of the King of the Universe, and heirs with Christ, so take authority and go forth!

Identity in the Spirit (Seer Stories)

The Lord has been calling me to live a transparent life. That is pretty hard when I have so many spiritual things I have never shared with anyone but me and God. He is calling me to “live a life Well-Lit”, shedding a spotlight into all the dark corners and secrets of my heart and mind. He has been calling me for years to “tell the tough stories”. Well, the one I am finally sharing today is certainly one of them. All of this has happened this year, in 2017, but even though it has been a “God-year”, it has also been a very tough year for my health and my family. God is not calling me to something easy, believe me! So…. here goes…. sometimes I see dead people (just for some comic relief).

And sometimes I see living people as they are in the spirit instead of the flesh. When this happens, it’s like I love them like Jesus does, even if I have never even met them! Sometimes they look like a super hero wielding a flaming sword, or a hedgehog, or a jester dancing bear, or a Lady of Justice or Statue of Liberty, or a white steed, or a rainbow unicorn, or a mermaid, or a conductor of a heavenly orchestra with rainbow frequency ribbon music swirling overhead, or even a fighter pilot, shooting fiery darts and things out of the sky.

How is this even Biblical?! Well, I think the Bible gives us lots of insight into the Trinity’s multi-dimensional, multiple personality and spirit representations when he talks about the Lion and the Lamb, the Dove, the Good Shepherd, the Vine and Branches, the Eagle, the Mother Hen with her chicks, and more aspects of their supernatural spiritual identity. Personification comes to ‘real life’ in the ‘unseen realms’.

“The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”           — I Corinthians 2:14 (ESV)

At first I did not know what to do with the information as it unfolded before my eyes. It seems like seeing in the spirit (seeing into the ‘unseen’ realms), is different for each person; most of what I see seems to be with both my natural and spiritual eyes, at the same time.  It’s like my spiritual eyes and my natural eyes are both wide open.

Sometimes I see with my mind’s eye, which seems more closely related to my imagination, but there have been many times where I am actually standing in an open vision and practically acting out in the natural what I was seeing in the ‘unseen’ dimension. It makes for clearer seeing of what is in front of you, but it can be terribly overwhelming at times, and has really made me look crazy to anyone else around me while it is happening! God is faithful to try and make sense of it all for me, or confirm things, or explain things, but that sometimes takes months or years, and in the meantime, it can just make you think like you are going nuts! It is like being inside of the movie set of an IMAX theatre experience while still being seated in the audience seat of the theatre.

Imagine sitting in a home-party meeting and all of a sudden their house walls fall away and you are seeing things that are very epic regarding entire people groups, religions, things that have already happened, things that are happening, and things that will happen in the future, all at once.

Almost every time it has happened I really have thought I was losing my mind; it was so vivid and real yet something I had a hard time processing with my research-oriented brain! The mind of Christ is literally mind-blowing to our limited perspective!

The first time I saw a friend of mine in the spiritual realm I reacted poorly because I had no clue what was happening to me! In the natural, she has lost an arm in a motorcycle accident, but in the spirit, the stump of her arm was wielding a fiery sword and she was riding a horse! Creatures were falling all around her and it looked like a battle scene from the matrix taking place in a galaxy. It truly looked like something straight out of the Book of Revelation! In fact, when I tried to explain it (doing a terrible job at it by the way) to her, to my hubby and pastor, they told me my friend was most certainly NOT in Revelation, and I was mistaken. I was. I was mistaking what I was seeing in the unseen realms for something that had been predicted in the Bible! Do you know what you would do if a scene from Revelation were to come true right before your eyes? They promptly took me to get psychiatric help, after determining that I was most likely not possessed. Never try to explain something like this while you are still in the middle of it! Take it to God alone, or you could end up like me trying to also explain to an in-patient psychiatrist that you ‘really did’ see people’s eyes manifest like a cat/snake eye, just like in the pictures below!

What if another spirit looked out through your eyes and it manifested to the world, just every now and then?! This is WAY more common than most people think, (just google illuminati eyes on YouTube) and has happened to more than a few people I know personally, including when it happened to me and I was blinded by demons (a story I describe in my Amazon book by Aspen Morrow).

But the coolest part about seeing my new friend cut down demons with a flaming sword, wielded by a missing hand, was that it was like I was seeing her through Jesus’ eyes, and even though I still don’t even really know her, I loved her so much! I was also in a room full of other people, complete strangers, and I loved them all! Jesus loves you so much, and created you perfectly, body, soul and spirit!

Part of that evening was also spent in an open vision, with so much happening all at once, so it is really hard to sort out everything. I often get open visions of past, present and future, seeing people and sensing things in the spirit, and more, all at once, and often also set to an old hymn soundtrack like “His banner over me is Love”. Seeing things in the natural realm, spiritual realm, and also on multiple screens in my mind (like open tabs on a computer) all at once can really make trying to explain it in human language difficult!

lady of justiceSince I can’t find all of what I experience in the spirit in any book, even books about ‘seeing in the spirit’, the ‘seer anointing’, and the ‘gift of discerning spirits’, the Holy Spirit is my best teacher, and so faithfully and patiently teaches me. I have had Holy Spirit lessons about my open visions, trances, scary things like seeing demons in people, and why I see friends doing some pretty supernatural stuff at times! I wish I could see all of you in the spirit so I could tell you just how amazing you are and oh how much God loves you! You are His favorite child in the whole world!

I then saw another friend and a group of friends. I noted that all the women I saw were Believers. It was as if they were all on a stage, each with their own microphones, and they could all sing or do something musical. There was a performance, and living rainbow music swirling all about their heads. Together they formed a harmonious symphony, even though I knew they were spread out over an entire city, and not all in one place. Some of them can actually sing and conduct music well, but a couple of them, like me, can’t sing in the natural, but were singing more beautifully than anything I have ever heard. I was actually dealing with some serious chronic fatigue in the natural at the moment I was seeing this in the spirit, and I was being transported from one hospital to another in a medical transport.

I did not understand what I saw at the moment, but the Lord later explained part of it to me, which was amazing. He showed me that some of the women were praying for me, that He had laid me on their hearts, and that their prayers were songs for my deliverance. The girl I saw conducting the music was my best friend, a band conductor in real life, and the Lord told me later at the very moment I saw her in the spirit, she was simply delivering pizza to my kids and washing my dirty dishes. Her service to my children and our friendship in my time of need created a worshipful offering to God in the unseen realms, which combined with the prayers of others, created a harmonic banner of love over me. Your simple act of kindness or service in the natural is a prophetic act of worship in the realm of Heaven, and not only changes the atmosphere, but changes outcomes!

I don’t fully understand what I see, but it is usually tied to how what we are doing in the natural shows up in the spirit. There has been so much fruit come about by getting glimpses of our spiritual identities, including a better and deeper love for my husband, has shown me that my husband’s primary spiritual gifting is “Wisdom” and that I should trust what God has put in him. My husband is so amazing, and seeing him in the spirit has only strengthened that feeling and love I have for him exponentially.

My main point of sharing all this is this: ask God to speak to you about how HE sees you! Does he see you like an adult version of your favorite super hero as a child? All the spiritual identities have been multi-faceted and deeply personal to that particular person, like an intimate snapshot of all their hopes and dreams rolled up into their spirit-man. Did you have something you desperately wanted to be when you grew up that never came to fruition? Well, unbeknownst to you, your spirit may just be playing that role for you! God does not waste a single tear, so He is certainly not going to waste your hopes and dreams! After all, He put them there for a reason.

Live a Life well Lit, and always do the Bright thing!

Raise your Vibrations to See in the Spirit! (Part ii on Frequency)

“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” — Revelation 4:1 (God speaking) 

Ever felt like God just seems so very far away? What if in a sense, He really is? Though He is Omnipresent, we are instructed to draw near to Him and He will draw near to us. Sin actually carries a lower frequency, and literally separates us from God. (Isaiah 59:2; Jeremiah 5:25) Sin also carries a stench (smell is a , and so do demons. Some people say they smell like crap! There is even a scientific theory of smell being linked to the vibrational frequency of the molecule in the infrared range.

In August, I had a vision where God was clearly telling me to “come up here”. I am SO NOT a Bible scholar (although through 6+ years of Missionettes and Awanas + 4 years of Southern Baptist college, I have hidden hundreds of verses in my heart, for which I am very thankful!). I had even forgot that “come up here” was an instruction God also gave John in Revelation! Reading it about a month after this vision I started crying, because God had been confirming things He taught me and showed me in a series of visions that lasted three days! I always seek confirmation and He is faithful to provide, even if not on my timing.

In my vision, people were lying down, on their backs, and the enemy was walking all over them! The enemy and his demons seemed to be elevated just above them. Many were obviously Believers, but the enemy still had easy access to them. I was seated above all this looking down. Then I saw myself reaching down and pulling people to a standing position, and then helping them up a steep embankment saying: “Come up Higher!” As they came up, the enemy grew smaller and smaller. I heard the Lord say: “Stand up in your Authority!” He kept repeating over and over: “come up here”, “come up here!” About 8 months after this vision, I heard Rick Joyner had a similar vision, but I am not really familiar with it or even with him. I also recently read in accounts of Maria Woodworth Etter’s life that the Lord was telling her to “build up higher” back in the late 1800’s! God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

One of the primary things He has been showing me is HOW to “come up here” and what happens when we do. It raises our frequency, and thus puts things that are at lower frequencies under our feet. For example, like I stated in the part one blog: a healthy body vibrates at 62-68 MHz. The Brain, when healthy, vibrates at 72-90 MHz; cancer vibrates at >42 MHz; A cold at 56 MHz. Death begins at 25 MHz! Emotions, Sin, Fear, Words, and even Thoughts carry frequency as well. Foods, essential oils and everything on earth has it’s own unique sound marker, including you. Wouldn’t you like cancer to be under your feet?! So, if earth is at a lower frequency, and God’s ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:9), it makes sense that raising our vibration might get us ‘closer to God’, (in a relationship sense, not a Tower of Babel sense) and may even be key to help seeing in the Spirit (this is allowing God to open the eyes of our heart).  He says that when we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. (James 4:8). So, step one is to raise our natural frequency through better health and supplementation. Step Two: Raise our Spiritual frequency (Hint: It’s all about Relationship with God!)

Sin separates us from God, literally (Isaiah 59:2). And sin carries its own frequency, which is lower than anything in the heavenly realms. When Adam sinned, and “fell”, He may have actually fallen to a lower vibrational frequency plane (an image God gave me, not Scripture, just my personal revelation). So how do we more closely reflect the One we are to mirror His image? I hypothesize that there are many ways, but we are going to talk about some scripturally sound ways to raise your frequencies, aligning them more closely with the will of God. You want to ‘hang out’ with God, and see like He sees, and walk like He walks? Like Jesus did when He said “I only do what I SEE my Father doing”? You have to get on the same playing field/plane.

Nikola Tesla said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

So, you want to see in the Spirit? A thinly-veiled difference in vibrational frequency separates the realms, and if you want to “see”, you have to “come up here.” (Revelation 4:1)  If you are “sunk” in sin or depression, or have ‘mind blinds’ from the enemy, you may want to let God help you come up out of that.

Things that Raise your ‘Spiritual Vibration’:

  1. Repentance, ask for Forgiveness, Confession of Sins to God AND others, Cleaning out House (2 Kings 20:1) of all sin, idols, bad movies, games, violence, anger, things that poison your spiritual gateways, ect…
  2. Worship, Prayer , Reading the WORD (the Bible) aloud.
  3. Think on these things (Phillippians 4:8): God’s Shalom (John 14:27) (1000+ Hz), World’s Peace (600 Hz), Joy (Nehemiah 8:10) (540 Hz), Love (500 hz) ….NOT: sin (>200 Hz), pride (175 Hz), anger (150 Hz), grief (75 Hz), shame (20 Hz), Depression (50 Hz), Anxiety (100 Hz)
  4. Spending time in nature, sunshine, earthing
  5. Supplements, Minerals (272-480 Hz), Vitamins, Healthy Salt, Water (See part 1 blog)
  6. Dance, Sing, Breathe, Forgive others
  7. Hug someone
  8. Fear NOT!
  9. Laugh, Smile
  10. Be around animals, do things you love: baths, hot springs, paint, etc…
  11. Exercise (other than Yoga, which causes mind blinds in the soul)
  12. Eat LIVING foods & Herbs (15 MHz)
  13. Use Essential Oils (22-320 MHz)
  14. Help others, serve
  15. Wear color, surround yourself with things you love
  16. Clean Products in the Household, natural skin-care and beauty-care products

Is your frequency ‘off’? Did you know Depression has a frequency of 50 (Hz)?! This is far below a healthy state of 68 (Hz), and I love helping people bring their minds closer in alignment to the Mind of Christ. When we draw close, He draws closer! It is not always easy, but it is so worth it!

So, since there is a list of things that can raise your vibrations, I thought I would include a list of things that can lower your vibrations and distance your connection to God and to the things of heaven.

  1. Sin
  2. Busyness, stress
  3. Hard Alcohol
  4. Junk/Processed Food
  5. Toxic thinking
  6. Toxic relationships
  7. Toxic Environment
  8. Sugar
  9. Medications (blog on this soon, how it is sometimes Pharmakeia, or witchcraft)
  10. Radiation Exposure
  11. Consistent Heavy Metal Music
  12. Yelling/Arguing/Fighting (Supplementing with Lithium Orotate can help!)
  13. Holding onto the past, or grudges, or unforgiveness
  14. Being stuck in emotions such as: fear, anger, hate, resentment, guilt, shame.
  15. Sexual encounters outside of a covenant marriage

All of these things put you in ‘closer reach’ of the enemy. Imagine the enemy in a basement, you want to be in the “upper room” with Jesus! You want to put as much distance between you and him and his team as possible! Imagine you are tall in the Spirit, floating above the earth, with the Spirit of GOD inside of you! Now think of the enemy as a little gardner snake in the grass. How worried about that snake would you be? What if you were riding a lawn mower? Worried? Ride the Holy Spirit within you, and set your mind on things above, for the unseen is permanent, and the seen is temporary. Many of the above list of things are things Jesus talked to us about on earth: love, service to others, strength of joy, upper room fellowship. If your fear, stinking thinking, guilt and shame are making you accessible to the enemy, repent and turn from your wicked ways and lay it down at the cross, for His yoke is easy and his burden is LIGHT! Then, come upstairs, and hang out on a ‘higher plane’! Jesus is the door, the truth and the WAY (John 14:6), and no one comes to the Father but through Him. The door to Heaven is open NOW, and we can come boldly before the throne of Grace (Hebrews 4:16), but not unless or until you go through Jesus Christ. Ask Him in your heart today, and don’t try to climb in another way, which is what you are doing if you are messing with the New Age’s way to get enlightenment. (John 10: 1-14)

If this “Baptist Seer” can see in the Spirit, you can too! Ask Jesus to open the eyes of your heart, for He is the giver of gifts. But even if He doesn’t, continue to praise the King of kings and Lord of lords, for His plans for you are greater than anything we could think or imagine!

Be Salt & Light,

Dreams and Visions, Seer Stories

Vision: I was Tithing to the enemy

When I recently attended The Gathering with Praying Medic and some other awesome peeps, I did not know hardly anything about healing the soul. Words like “Soul Fragments” and “Alters” freaked me out a little bit, but after having a series of visions around this topic, I felt God wanting to get my attention. (Want more info? Read Broken to Whole). I was even having visions of my own soul fragments/alters, drew pictures of them, and then had them confirmed in some inner healing ministry without telling the healer about my pictures! Well, then another vision came up, as well as a Word from the Lord.

There were clearly some Masonic ties going on with some of the warfare and fragments I have been dealing with. Clearly. As in: no doubt. My grandfather and great-grandfather were high level Masons. On the other side of my family, some powerful prophetess prayer warriors, seers and Believers. Quite the mixed family tree. I have been praying to be set free from the Masonic ties and some ritual abuse as a child and I have done some deliverance, curse breaking and now some soul fragment work.

But one day, the Lord said: “You say you want to be set free, but you are saying otherwise with your finances. You are tithing to the Masons, every month, and you have been tithing to them longer than you have been tithing to Me! You are supporting that occult financially, and every dollar is a seed you plant with your choices. You reap what you sow, so s0w into my Kingdom, not the enemy’s camp.” With this Word came an open vision:

In my vision, there was a line drawn right down the middle of the sky. On the right side was God’s tent, complete with a scene that looked like a Civil War army camp. Angelic hosts, creatures and foot soldiers were busy: in and out of tents, in and out of the earth and sky and Heavens. On the left side, the enemy’s camp. Demons also bustled about, and people captive to the enemy were lined up in countless rows. I saw myself enter the enemy’s camp, and right in the middle of camp, I knelt down and planted a seed that happened to look just like a one dollar bill. The seed grew and grew, and became a fruit-bearing tree, but it was feeding the enemy and its’ troops! The soldiers in God’s camp turned into orphans and widows and people from every tribe, hungry and calling out for help. Jesus was saying to me in my ear: Imagine every dollar is a seed, one that grows up into a fruit-producing tree with sometimes a thousand-fold production from the original investment.” But it is just one dollar, I argued! What impact could one dollar make? He replied, “In my Kingdom, every dollar is either a seed planted in my Camp, or a seed planted in the enemy’s camp. They each grow up to be fruit-producing trees, but whose army do you want to feed?” Wow! This was a wake-up call for sure!

Jesus spoke in parables a lot, and that seems to be the way He speaks with me, probably because I think in pictures and have a child-like, picture-book understanding of complex Kingdom matters. This story made quite an impact on me and I think is a great illustration.

As I came out of the vision, God continued to speak to me about it then and in the weeks that followed. I asked Him where and how I had been tithing to the enemy. He told me to audit every dollar coming in and out of the house and pray about what I found. When I found it, it jumped off the page as if it were highlighted, and the Lord said: “Kick the enemy out of your house, and you will be set free.” He has been telling me to “clean house” (II Kings 21) all year, and this was just one more area to clean up.

The “dollar” I was planting in the enemy’s camp seemed quite innocuous. It was a monthly autoship to a company that carried health and wellness products. I spent money with them every month because they were “green”, helped my house be more “safe” and “less toxic”, and were even an in-state company (I try to keep my dollars as local as possible). But the company’s founder has very strong ties to an organization founded in Masonic Cult traditions. “Ding ding ding” went off in my Spirit, literally. “You are tithing to the enemy, and need to be more careful that what you say you want to be free from, and what you sew into, match up,” I heard once again. Once I canceled them, an oppression just seemed to lift, and it was like my prayers had found an open Heaven finally.

The Lord has been talking to me about releasing this Word for others. He has said that if His people would treat every dollar as a seed, choosing to plant into His Kingdom for advancement, or into the enemy’s camp for retreat, that spiritual tides would turn. You see, money has power in the natural and supernatural. God does not need our finances or our tithes, but His people do, and where our hearts are, there our treasure will be also.

Only nine percent of Born Again Believers even tithe ten percent(1) and if Believers did tithe 10%, the world would have $165 Billion dollars more to make change in the world.(2). But what about another option? What if Believers started just giving what they already have? Like moving some money around? Or tithing more with their time and talents? Give from what you already have, and God will give you increase. The number one key I have learned when it comes to tithing is obedience. I’m not saying that God expects everyone to cancel their autoships to products backed by cults. But what if He is? Ask Him.

I do feel that God is calling all of us to audit our finances. He wants to open Heaven’s storehouses, it’s just that sometimes we are blocking His blessings. I also recently saw someone in the spirit, and she looked like a porcupine. She and her husband were complaining about finances, and about how many people had prayed over them for financial breakthrough. When I looked up, there were bills falling from Heaven, right above her, but they were getting stuck in her quills. The Lord whispered, “She is blocking hers’ and her husband’s blessings with her prickly spirit.” There were stacks of bills just sitting there, skewered on her quills, and I saw that if she laid down her bristles they would slide off and be accessible. I couldn’t help but almost laugh out loud when I heard her complaining and saw her face morph into a porcupine with stacks of bills sticking up all around her. I kept quiet, feeling she would not receive the word from me, but I have been praying for her instead. So, the Lord wants to give good gifts to His children, but there may be some legalities or blockages as to why it’s not getting through.

I highly recommend the book The Blessed Life. Evaluate every dollar that is coming and going out of your house. Treat every dollar as a seed. Where do you want to plant it? In God’s camp or in the enemy’s camp? Do you want to support Christian Radio (highly recommended)? PureFlix vs Netflix? Hand out $100 bills wherever the Lord directs? Sponsor an orphan locally or overseas? Pay for a Christian book, class, or seminar, conference with part of your tithe money if God directs? How about supporting a Christian cosmetics or jewelry company over another that carries the same thing (Like Premiere Designs). What do you buy every day that could be bought from a Christian business? We have a great local Christian Business Directory here and I have never even used it! So, I am “preaching” to myself as I write! Remember, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, so don’t make it a religious spirit thing and worry or stress about it, but ask God and be obedient to his direction.

Read Matthew chapter 6, all of it. But especially Matthew 6:19-21 (NASB): “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. (20)“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; (21) for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

The Lord has been working on my heart and home in several areas, and finances is definitely one of them. Remember that God does not need our money, but money is important to God and to the Kingdom. Where we are spending our money is also important to accusations the enemy may have against us.

I am learning this lesson as I go as well. I only started tithing faithfully a year ago, and my hubby joined me several months later; but I cannot even rightly count the money miracles that have happened since then. Obedience is the key, and God is faithful to provide, so cast all your cares on Jesus.
