1 The Gift of Divine Revelation Eyes to SeeThe Gift of Divine Revelation
2 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear LUKE 10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.PROVERBS 20:12The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
3 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear MATTHEW 11: At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 26Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. 27All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
4 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear MATTHEW 13:10,11 10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
5 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear WHY IT HAD TO BE SHEPHERD Then He turned around and said, "Except you eat the Flesh of the Son of man, and drink His Blood, you have no Life in you."…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..He never explained It, He just said It! He did it to stumble them, to separate His sheep from goats. He did it to throw them off. And then nobody wanted to cooperate with Him. They had no cooperation from then on. See?
6 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear E WHY I'M AGAINST ORGANIZED RELIGION God watches over His Word, you know, the Bible said. It's wrote just the way It should be. See? Now, It's put in such a way to deceive, or to make the wise stumble over It. It's so simple, that's the reason they stumble over It.
7 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear JOHN 10: Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. 26But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
14 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST (CHURCH AGE BOOK) I admit that it takes a real revelation from the Holy Ghost to see the truth about the Godhead these days when we are in the midst of the perverting of so much Scripture. But the prevailing, overcoming church is built on revelation so we can expect God to reveal His truth to us. However, you actually don't need a revelation on water baptism. It is right there staring you in the face.
15 Revelation vs Teaching A revelation cannot be taught. It can only be given by the Father. This is what the whole Church is based on. Matthew 16:13-18
16 Teaching = Understanding Teaching Revelation?WHERE HAS THY STRENGTH GONE SAMSON Now, I think that's just the way of a lot of our seminary teaching and knowledge that's too much of a canary brain. We can't understand the mysteries of God by knowledge, because it's only revealed by the Holy Ghost as It will reveal.Teaching = UnderstandingRevelation = Knowing
17 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear M THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST That's where God built His Church. "For flesh and blood never revealed this to you." Never learned It in a seminary. Somebody never taught It to you somewhere. "But my Father which is in heaven has revealed It to you." There, the whole thing is on revelation, the whole Church, "Upon this rock of Revelation of Jesus Christ, I'll build my church."
18 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear WORKS IS FAITH EXPRESSED Now, faith is "a revelation from God." Now, faith is a revelation. There's where I want to stay, there, just a moment. It's a revelation. He has revealed it to you by His grace. It's nothing you did. You didn't work yourself up into faith. You ever have faith, it's give to you by the grace of God. And God reveals it to you, therefore faith is a revelation. And the whole Church of God is built upon the revelation.
20 Revelation vs. Understanding The one who can see the picture understands the proper placing of the information and the relationship of the items to one another.The person with the information can only understand what is in the picture. They do not see the placing and the relationship.
21 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear DEUTERONOMY 29:2-4 2And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land; 3The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles: 4Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.
22 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear JOHN 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
23 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear M GOD'S ONLY PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP But when once that Holy Spirit really... genuine Word comes into you (the Word, Jesus), then, brother, the Message is no secret to you then; you know It, brother, It's all lit up before you.
24 Eyes to See and Ears to Hear THE RAPTURE But, to the Church, the Bride, the Rapture is a revelation to Her. It's revealed to Her. That, the revelation, the true Bride of Christ will be waiting for that revelation of the Rapture. Now, it is a revelation, for the revelation is faith. You cannot have a revelation without it being faith. Faith is a revelation, because it's something that's revealed to you. Faith is a revelation. Faith is something that has been revealed to you, like it was to Abraham, that could call anything contrary to what had been revealed to him, as though it wasn't so. Now, faith, that's what faith is, is the revelation of God.
25 Pray for RevelationCHURCH AGE BOOK If they saw it, by getting in the Spirit, they would know that if they want to receive the Holy Spirit, they need to repent and be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus and then God would be duty bound to fulfill His Word by filling them with the Holy Ghost. They never get in His Spirit or it would happen to them exactly as the Word says. Pray to God for a revelation by His Spirit. That is the first step. Get in the Spirit.
