God releases prophetic vision to those He chooses so they can lead others to bring the vision into manifestation. When God gives the vision, it is for the purpose of allowing the recipient to “see” what God sees. If then, they obey God, God will provide all that is necessary to make the vision a reality according to His timing.
Abraham was an example for us. In Genesis, God had told Abraham five times that He was making covenant with him and that He would multiply his seed to possess the land. Like us, Abraham struggled to believe this at times. He tried to make things happen. Then in Genesis 22, God invited Abraham into a new level of revelation.
“…God tested Abraham and said to him…”take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering ….” Gen 22:1-2
Moriah means ‘chosen by God, seen by God.’ God wanted Abraham to ‘see’ that He would provide all that was needed to secure the covenant He made with him. In the place where Abraham stumbled and tried to figure out how to “have a son” thereby producing Ishmael, God had to prove Abraham. Would Abraham really believe what God had said and could he trust God to provide?
This time Abraham obeyed perfectly. He told Isaac, “God will provide the lamb” for the sacrifice. “Provide” is the same word as SEE, the Hebrew word Ra’ah. Even though God’s instruction seemed to contradict His promise, Abraham lifted his hand to slay Isaac. Abraham was no longer relying on his own understanding. God stopped him (at the last minute) and then drew his attention to the bush where the ram was caught. Now Abraham could SEE what God provided and he offered his sacrifice. Abraham called the place, “The Lord Sees.”
Abraham caught God’s vision. He SAW what God SAW. His faith had come to a new level and he trusted God rather than looking for an alternative sacrifice, one that he could create. Abraham had been proved and now God was able to release provision to him. The whole experience was not about the offering, it was about obedience.
In these last days, in this season of seeing (Ayin), God is calling to all who will see with Him. He is releasing a new wave of prophetic revelation (also called The Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation), regarding His end-time plan. He is looking for partners that will believe Him even when His instructions seem contradictory to His promise.
In Daniel 11:32, God says, “But the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.”
When you look at the Hebrew words for “know” and “exploits,” you find the true meaning of this verse is,
Those who have ‘seen’ with their God will bring forth what they have seen!
V 33 – Those who have gained this understanding through prophetic revelation will be considered wise and successful in God’s eyes. God will allow them to teach and instruct many.
God is releasing supernatural wisdom, revelation, and vision for those who will partner with Him to bring forth His Kingdom. He wants us to SEE what He sees, the future of His Kingdom. We get to partake of the glory that He has prepared, but we also get to share in the sufferings. Verses 33-34 go on to say that those who have understanding will also be persecuted, taken into captivity and killed. But God will be their victory. He will send the Holy Spirit and angels to help them. They will be few in number but mighty in strength. Many deceivers will join with them in an attempt to weaken and divide their forces. Some of them will stumble (as Abraham did), but it will be for the purpose of purifying them and proving them to be true. This is promised for the appointed time – the last days – our day!
Oh Lord, open our eyes that we may see what You see, that we may gain prophetic vision and build Your Kingdom!
