OPEN YOUR EYES OPEN YOUR EARS 6-19-2020
So much is going on around us. Theres a reality that is greater than what we are currently seeing. God has prepared good things for us. He gives us the blessings of both heaven and earth. We live in a day where we are looking and searching to hear God. But we dont have to travel across the nation to hear him. He lives inside us. Lets open our mouth and speak right from where we are the words that God gives us.
MATT 13:13 Thats why I teach the people using parables, because they think theyre looking for truth, yet because their hearts are unteachable, they never discover it. Although they will listen to me, they never fully perceive the message I speak.
14 The prophecy of Isaiah describes them perfectly: Although they listen carefully to everything I speak,they dont understand a thing I say. They look and pretend to see, but the eyes of their hearts are closed.
15 Their minds are dull and slow to perceive, their ears are plugged and are hard of hearing,and they have deliberately shut their eyes to the truth. Otherwise they would open their eyes to see, and open their ears to hear, and open their minds to understand. Then they would turn to me and let me instantly heal them.[
16 But your eyes are privileged, for they see. Delighted are your ears, for they are open to hear all these things.
17 Many prophets and godly people in times past yearned to see these days of miracles that youve been favored to see. They would have given everything to hear the revelation youve been favored to hear. Yet they didnt get to see as much as a glimpse or hear even a whisper. TPT
Heb 5:11 Concerning this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull in your [spiritual] hearing and sluggish [even slothful in achieving spiritual insight].
12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God's Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food.
13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in purpose, thought, and action), for he is a mere infant [not able to talk yet]!
14 But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law. AMP
Amos 8:11 Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord God, when I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but [a famine] for hearing the words of the Lord.
12 And [the people] shall wander from sea to sea and from the north even to the east; they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord [inquiring for and requiring it as one requires food], but shall not find it. AMP
ISA 30:20-21 Even though the Lord may allow you to go through a season of hardship and difficulty, he himself will be there with you. He will not hide himself from you, for your eyes will constantly see him as your Teacher.
21 When you turn to the right or turn to the left, you will hear his voice behind you to guide you, saying,This is the right path; follow it.TPT
2 Cor 4:17 For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],
18 Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting. AMP
MT 6:20 Instead, stockpile heavenly treasuresfor yourselves that cannot be stolen and will never rust, decay, or lose their value.
21 For your heart will always pursue what you value as your treasure.
22 The eyes of your spirit allow revelation-lightto enter into your being. If your heart is unclouded, the light floods in!
23 But if your eyes are focused on money, the light cannot penetrate and darkness takes its place. How profound will be the darkness within youif the light of truth cannot enter!
24 How could you worship two gods at the same time? You will have to hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cant worship the true God while enslaved to the god of money! TPT
Rom 10:17 So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself). AMP

Mark 4:24 And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. AMP
MK 4:24 Then he said to them,Be diligent to understand the meaning behind everything you hear, for as you do, more understanding will be given to you. And according to the depth of your longing to understand, much more will be added to you. TPT
Num 24:2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes and he saw Israel abiding in their tents according to their tribes. And the Spirit of God came upon him
3 And he took up his [figurative] discourse and said: Balaam son of Beor, the man whose eye is opened [at last, to see clearly the purposes and will of God],
4 He [Balaam] who hears the words of God, who sees the vision of the Almighty, falling down, but having his eyes open and uncovered, he says:

2 Kings 6:16 He said, "Don't worry about it there are more on our side than on their side."
