Seeing The Invisible

Seeing What Others Can't

Hebrews 11:27(KJV) - By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Can you see the invisible? Moses defied a king he could see because he believed in a greater King he could not see. Initially, his decision seemed foolish to the untrained eye but eventually when God crushed Pharaoh and the Children of Israel were free he was vindicated.

Now that we've set the foundation with our quick study of  The Four Pillars of The Cracked Door Foundation let's move forward into deeper waters. Welcome to the new direction of The Cracked Door. It's 2012. Fun and games are over, we're ready to unlock some mysteries in this place. If you're with us, let's go!

Seeing What Others Can't

2 Corinthians 4:18(KJV) - While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

What defines your reality? What you see, hear, smell, touch or taste? If that's true, then what happens if you can no longer use your natural senses? Do you cease to exist? I think not. Your reality is based on your perspective. Your perspective is based on what you can "see". Sometimes, you can't see enough with your natural eyes.

Each of us have three sets of eyes; spiritual, mental and physical. We're most familiar with our physical eyes which give us the ability to see what's going on around us. Also, many of us can see things through our mind's eyes which give us the ability to see potential. However, we also have spiritual eyes which give us the ability to see the impossible.

Over five thousand people cannot eat from five loaves of bread and two fish but they did. A man who is dead for three days cannot instantly come back to life but Jesus and Lazarus did. A human being cannot walk on water but Jesus and Peter did. A man cannot translate from one location to another but Elijah and Philip did. A man cannot tell the sun to stop but Joshua did. Any intelligent person knows that all of those things are completely impossible... or are they? Who or what defines impossible?

Within my lifetime, I've heard of a pastor who came back from the dead after being in the morgue for three days because people prayed. I also read of another who translated from one location to another while running for his life. I also have a couple testimonies of my own.

Seeing What Others Can't

Genesis 1:1(NKJV) - In the beginning (time) God created the heavens (space) and the earth(physical matter).(emphasis mine)

The spirit realm is eternal. There is no time, space or physical matter in the spirit. Time, space and matter are created entities which came into existence in an instant by The Will of God. The invisible, spirit realm within which God dwells existed before they were created and will outlast them. Hence, when we see things through our spiritual eyes we transcend the limitations of our humanity. We see the same reality that God sees. We see the impossible.

Today, we'll start a new series on the spirit realm. It's probably not going to be like anything you've ever seen or heard before. I believe God wants to show us some things in the scriptures that will elevate our minds and lift our spirits. Join us on this journey as we see the invisible.
