His Eyes

Revelations 1:14 ….. and his eyes were as a flame of fire.

“Eyes as a flame” speaks of the word of knowledge of an endtime discernment. The Lord is beginning to pull back the veil and show us the realm of the spirit. We are going to see and understand spiritual things. We will come to perceive the warfare that is taking place, the amount of the enemy that's within a person, the ground that is being held and also how much of them is free and has come under God’s sovereignty. We will know what's happening on the inside, the controlling factors within a person’s life, within a family situation or even within a church. We are going to begin to see below the surface. At this point is when we must use great caution. On the surface everything looks nice. But underneath it's not that way there's all kinds of things going on that need to be dealt with. Areas where there needs to come deliverance, release, healing and correction, repentance and forgiveness. Left to ourselves when we begin to see these things the natural tendency is to become critical or judgmental. If we allow either of these to manifest then we're of no use to The Lord. Because Jesus came not just to expose problems but to bring redemption in whatever form its needed into each heart and life. Not just to correct those things but He said I am come that you might have life and have it more abundantly. So then if the Lord is giving us discernment on some level and showing us a problem, the reason is that so through us through our faithfulness and obedience and response and reaction to His spirit there might come healing and correction and deliverance. This Burden takes the forms of prayer and intercession as we seek the Lord for understanding and wisdom so that we might see the situation as He sees it and respond and move in harmony with the Spirit to bring about the necessary correction. This “flame of fire” is more like a laser, pinpointing that next step that is needed then allowing time for healing so that additional progress may be made in the future. So it’s the right word, in the right amount at the right time spoken under the anointing that will produce a “ heart change” within the hearer. What we are becoming is a people who are available and sensitive to the moving of the Spirit, to seek and to save that which was lost.
