I often hear from people who ask “Why am I a seer? What was God thinking?” I’ve met many seers who just want to sit alone in a corner, hiding their eyes, lest they see the unseen carnage around us.
Recently, I received an email from a young seer:
How am I supposed to live for the rest of my life as a seer for Jesus in a dark, crazy, chaotic world that doesn’t understand and where even my family and friends don’t understand either? And how am I supposed to be ok with this?
This was such a heartfelt cry, I wanted to share it. I’ve spoken with this seer by phone. She sees mainly demons and other dark spirits. She see spiritual warfare. She wants to be trained in the use of this ability to see beyond the veil.
But it’s tiring. This seer added:
The life of a seer seems to be really difficult. This is quite a hard thing for me. I feel like I have a secret identity that only a few understand.
It is hard. I am not a seer, but I have interviewed many dozens. I am constantly surprised how many people there are who
- actually see demons and angels,
- who see the spiritual warfare around us all the time,
- who see the effects of prayers and curses, and
- witness the light of God and the darkness of demons.
This weekend, I attended a paranormal and psychic fair, for a time staffing a booth where we offered dream interpretation, prayer, and “readings” (which is “New Age-ese” for giving Prophetic Words). We were quite busy, because as agents of the King, we brought God’s presence (which to all of us are God’s Presents, isn’t it?).
One of the team was a seer, and he asked if I had walked down by the gypsies and fortune tellers.
He said, “Dark cloud down there.”
I noticed, but didn’t see it. Walking through it was like walking through a dark and mature wheat field, except the wheat was parting for me.
He’s a man of few words. Many seers are. After all, how would you describe a Monet to a blind person? “Lots of colors.” And that’s about it.
As he looked at me, this seer, whom I had not seen in 6 months, said, “Your aura is much cleaner than the last time I saw you. Clearer. Much less stress.” Indeed. The last 6 months have been a time of spiritual renewal and pruning many distractions and activities from my life.
Seers amaze me.
For you who see in the spirit, how do you think I felt hearing him speak what he saw into me?
Choose this Day Whom You Will Serve
I know there were many seers at this fair. Most not aligned with the Most High God, the King. It was interesting seeing them stare at me, startled, recognizing me as an agent of the King.
The New Age movement attracts seers because New Agers are non-judgemental and have a supernatural understanding of reality. This used to be the realm of Christianity – being nonjudgemental and having a supernatural understanding of reality, and in many places around the world, it is. But in America, it’s not, and New Agers will happily train young seers to become a psychic or a witch or wizard or a fortune teller.
Well, I see things differently. The spirit world is ultimately under the rule of a King, the maker of heaven and earth and all that is within. We can choose to openly serve the King or not. New Agers serve other spirits. I choose to serve the Holy Spirit. And those who see spirits, I encourage to
Go to your King for your orders,
Come to Jesus to hear his plans,
Seek the Lord to understand God’s ways, and
Approach the throne to hear God’s counsel.
Yes, you see the dark. It’s bad. It’s scary. No one understands. If you tell people, they might lock you up, try to give you drugs, or at least think you’re nuts and shun you.
At this fair, I met a seer who was a paranormal investigator and is also a Christian. She wants to help people she says. So do New Agers, but she has something they don’t: the King’s authority.
Stand Up. Walk as One the King has Sent.
It’s scary. Combat the fear with the love of God. There is no fear in love, for perfect love casts out fear. (1 John 4:18)
God is with you. Angels are assigned to you. Ask to be able to see them. And know you are sitting in the throne with Jesus.
You feel like you have a secret identity. You do have a secret identity. Most Christians will look at you askance.
So keep it secret, but don’t keep it secret.
Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, battle the demons that only you see, exposing them to the Light of Jesus and telling people who God has called them to be, and go about your life quietly. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:19)
It’s not about you. It’s not your message. As the Father sent the King, so the King has sent you.
You are merely the ambassador. You represent the King.
As Jesus came to serve the world, so has he sent you to serve. It’s a noble calling. One assigned to you, because he knows you are able. Trust him, because he trusts you.
Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me shall not remain in darkness.
If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to the judge the world but to save the world. (The King speaking in John 12:44-47).
As you continually see only the darkness, set your minds on things above, as the King’s ambassador wrote:
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth…
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and , if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,… and whatever you do, inward or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (See Colossians 3:1-17)
Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory. Amen and amen.
