Blessed Eyes

Blessed Eyes
 
Almost everyone that has been in church knows the story of Jesus sending forth his disciples two by two, to preach the gospel of the kingdom. But the story of the seventy is not known so well. In Luke chap. 10 we see that Jesus sent forth seventy others in the same fashion as He sent the twelve. This tells us plainly the God is interested in having many disciples preaching and healing, not just twelve.
When these seventy returned they were so full of joy from seeing what God had done through them. (V-17) God is interested in doing great through us all if we will just hear His call and follow His instructions. In all this rejoicing over the works of God, Jesus reminded us that the greatest thing to rejoice about is that we are saved, born again and our names are written in the Lambs Book of Life! (V- 20)
The seventy had seen miracles, mighty things of God that not everyone had seen. Jesus said they were very blessed to have seen these things for many before them had desired to see these things and had not. (V-23-24)
When I think and read of the patriarchs, I imagine sometimes what it would have been like to have lived in their times. Abraham walked with God, talked with Him face to face, was called the friend of God and is called the Father of Our Faith. Jesus said in John 8:56 that Abraham saw my day and was glad. He could see spiritually into the future and had covenants with God.
Moses met with God and talked with Him. He received the law from God and taught a whole nation the ways of God. He spoke of a prophet coming that everyone was to listen to. That prophet is Jesus. (Deut. 18:15, 18, Acts 3:22-17:37)
David knew and saw many prophetic things concerning Christ. He saw in the spirit a Temple for God, Christ ministry and crucifixion. He also saw the resurrection and much more. He had blessed eyes spiritually, yet did not see what the seventy saw and heard. (See Psalm 22)
Hebrews 11 tells us of many faith heroes that saw God do amazing things and yet it is said they without us could not be made perfect. (Hebrews 11:40)
When Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared unto many and they saw Him. Thomas missed one of these occasions and declared that he would not believe unless he could see and touch the Master’s hands and side. (John 20: 19-29)
On that occasion Jesus said he believed by seeing but the blessed ones are those that believe without having to see.
Now, what about us? Do we need to see before we believe?
Back in Luke 10:21, Jesus began to rejoice in spirit because revelation had come to those around Him. We must be able to see and understand that Jesus rejoices when revelation of Him and His work comes to someone. As we read God’s Word, we have before us God’s revealed will and way. If we believe without having to see we will be called blessed.
In Verse 22 Jesus tells us there will be future revelation of Him. We find some of this in the book of Revelation but we find much more of it in the entire scriptures because the holy Spirit is teaching us and guiding us in to all truths. (John 14:26, 16:12-13)
It has always been God’s desire for people to believe in Him. As people believe they see. The seeing must begin spiritually before naturally. Whatever we can see in our hearts first, we can see happen in our lives. When we can hear what God is saying by the scriptures we can begin to see it happen in our lives.
I don’t know about a lot of people but I, for one am desirous to see and hear what those seventy and many others have seen and heard.
I and others with me are positioning ourselves to hear form God concerning revelation and miracles in the time we live in. We are looking for some now vision and some now miracles! We are joining ourselves together to pray seek God’s face and obey His voice.
How about you? Would you be among those the Jesus says has blessed eyes and ears? It seems good to God to reveal His Son Jesus to us so He can be revealed in us and then be revealed through us! Join Us!
