To See Beyond by eagledove

To See Beyond

Karen Elliott

For the past week or so, the Lord has been reminding me of a word He spoke to me several years ago and its significance for today. I feel He is prompting me to share it to encourage us to look beyond what we are seeing with our natural eyes.

A number of years ago as I was riding in the passenger seat coming home from a meeting, I was contemplating some things that I needed answers for. It was evening and the sky was pitch black.  As I was staring out the window into the dark night, suddenly, a brightly lit sign caught my eye. Against the skyline stood a building with a neon-like blue sign that read “C BEYOND.”

My heart was immediately quickened by Holy Spirit. He was reminding me, once again, to look beyond the natural circumstances and my own reasoning, to see what He is doing.  Many times He has spoken to me about looking beyond the natural realm if I want to ‘really’ see what is happening. On that night, He was reconfirming His word to me that I should not judge by what I am seeing externally, and that to move ahead into the future and stand in the midst of what looks to be crazy world circumstances, I must be able to ‘see beyond’ to what He is doing.  Since that day years ago, it seems to me that the world has become even more crazy and volatile.

After this experience, several weeks later, I was returning from another meeting. Again I was sitting in the passenger seat of the car looking out into the night for the building with the blue sign and sure enough, there it was.  Funny, I had never seen this before, even after countless times driving past it.  This time however, there was even more! On the same building along the right top corner were words that were lit up in the same blue lights.  It read, ‘Keypoint’!

I immediately understood that the Lord was saying that to ‘see beyond is the keypoint’ for the hour we are living in. It couldn’t be more clear to me.

The unseen realm must become more real to us than this natural worldly realm!

I believe that this is fresh revelation for this time, even though it is something, we as children of God should continually live in and be aware of. The truth is, too many of God’s children get caught up in the events of the day in the natural realm and are not looking beyond into how the Lord is moving and shifting things in the supernatural realm.

My prayer for us as God’s beloved children is that we will continue to develop a deeper intimacy with Him on a daily basis, drawing near to Him, seeking His presence, tarrying with Him. From this place, we will be transformed, and we will live from the realm where He dwells and see things through His eyes from the place we are seated with Him in the heavens.

I pray that we will grow into the place of seeing beyond the worldly circumstances that seem to surround us.  There are more that are with us than we can see! May our eyes be opened to see beyond!

“When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early in the morning, an army of horses and chariots had surrounded the city. So he asked Elisha, “Oh my master, what are we to do?” “Do not be afraid,” Elisha answered, “for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”  Then Elisha prayed, “Oh Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw that the hills were full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”  2Kings 6:15-17

Who Wants Me Just For Me? by eagledove

“WHO WANTS ME, JUST FOR ME,” SAYS THE LORD?
Donna Milham

Who wants ME, just for Me?
This is His Heart cry to His people
Those who will seek Him for intimate relationship,
This is what Jesus died on the cross for,
Restoration of covenant relationship with the Trinity
Yes, we need to seek His gifts – BUT – seeking Him first
For relationship and then from this place
His gifts will come forth with holiness, purity, and power
Flowing from oneness with Him

Who wants me, just for me?
This is the heart cry of His people to each other
Not wanted for their gifts, but for who they are
Heart to heart fellowship
Not being used for building a church or ministry
But pure and holy relationships that bring glory to the
Father, Son and Spirit.

Revelatory Writing by Donna Milham from her book “At His Feet”

Intricately Made by eagledove

INTRICATELY MADE
Jen Brinton

Did the ground tremble as You walked from the grave?
Joy and mystery in Your eyes
You draw my heart closer
Surrounded by nothing more than Your presence
My heart trembles at the majesty before me
If I will give You everything
If I worship only You
Casting aside all distractions
All vain imaginings
Allowing You into every part of me
Leaving nothing untouched
In the quietness, and even in the loud times.
I can hear you if I listen
No one can find me when I am
In that hidden place with You
Sacred space, where none but You and I are allowed
I long for this with everything in me
More than food, more than the air I breathe
It gives me strength,
Quiet strength that cannot be stolen
You knit me together in my mother’s womb
You know everything about me
Nothing I do surprises You
Yet now, after so much has happened,
I once more come before You
Make me holy, make me new
Let me never forget
That You knit Yourself into my innermost being
The day that I said yes
You infiltrated my life
You delight in me, the work of Your hands
Fingers weaving threads – here a color change,
There a different stitch or a cable
Never stopping the work until it is done
You spoke words of life and love
As You wrapped that yarn,
Dipped Your hand, pulled it through the loop
You wove in Your love and grace,
A bit of fire that would grow with time.
Some depth, strength, and tenacity
Gentleness of spirit –
Pieces of Your nature –
And then You placed a gap in the work
That only You could fill.
So intricate the work,
No one else could do it
It could not be happenstance
That these eyes have some of the fire from Your eyes
That this smile gleams with Your life and light
I am Your child, through and through
Your DNA woven into my very being
For You gave of Yourself when You breathed into Adam,
And more so when You spilled Your blood,
That most sacred substance,
More costly than all the riches of the universe,
and You gave it all
You made me to be
Precious in Your sight
Interwoven with You
A thousand crowns could not compare
A million years could not devalue
What You have given me,
What You  have offered all of mankind.
Do we recognize it?
How valued we are in Your sight?
How sacred the breath of life in our lungs?
Do we see the secret workings of Your hands
In a mother’s womb?
Each one a work of love!

Three Greatest Words by eagledove

THREE GREATEST WORDS!
By Donna Milham

To walk under, in and to release these words of His Love will transform our lives in every way – body, mind, soul and spirit!
God Loves You!
Three greatest words we can ever hear for our own lives and ever say to anyone else –

His Love is the foundation of all the power of the Kingdom of God.
We must not settle for anything less than the works of Heaven, healing, deliverance, signs and wonders, peace and joy and righteousness……this is all the Kingdom of God being revealed on earth.
It is through you and me that He reveals Himself, we are His Hands extended!  We are His eyes looking, watching, expressing mercy and love.
We are His mouthpieces to speak Truth with Love, Mercy and Grace, Future and Hope!
We are the ones Heaven is watching and waiting for to act upon our faith.
We are the ones that He wants to inhabit – to live and move and have our being in Him.

Acts 17:28
‘For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring.’ AMP

Acts 17:28-29
’ We live and move in him, can’t get away from him! One of your poets said it well: ‘We’re the God-created.’ TM

God created – have our being in him – exist in Him, by Him, through Him.
It is breathing the very breath of God and walking in that each day.
Religion has made our walk with God so very complicated…………
It is a walk of rest and peace and yes we will have troubles and trials and tribulations and difficulties and it is not easy…….He never said it would be easy and without pain – but He said He would be with us and in us and live through us.

Our walk is to be in a rhythm that we breathe in and out the atmosphere of Heaven, the Kingdom of Heaven which is righteousness peace and joy in the Holy Spirit!
If we find ourselves not in this realm, then we are not in the realm of His Kingdom and we need to stop and see what has pulled us out of this realm or why we are not in this realm.
This is not about being a perfectionist – only Jesus walked perfectly in this – but He learned it, as we do and He set the example and path and way for us in this.

He did not let things, circumstances affect Him, He effected the circumstances, He changed atmospheres just by being in a room, by showing up! Things changed.
When He spoke then things shifted and aligned with Heaven’s Decrees, remember He only did and said what He saw His Father doing or saying.
That is why He healed ‘one’ by the pool of Bethesda, it was what He saw His Father doing!
There were many sick there – we want formulas and to understand everything about healing – but God does not always reveal every detail to us, every revelation – but He has invited us to COME UP HERE so we can see from God’s point of view.

We can no longer afford to see things from our point of view.
Viewing our history from how we see things, our victories and our failures……how God sees is very different and He wants us to view from Heaven’s perspective – our past, present and where He is bringing us.

God desires for us to live in His Security – the Security of His Word and His Promises and His Love!  And from this place to bring others into that security.
The world is in desperate need of this security and God is working within all of our lives to show us where we are NOT walking in THIS security so we will and can bring others into this realm of the GIFT OF PEACE OF HEART AND MIND that He has promised.

It is found and learned in His Presence……His Word……and walked out in the trials and tribulations of life………..it is here it is proven if we truly are walking in this place of Peace!
And then He invites us to come in deeper in the places He reveals that are not yet in those realms of peace.  It is His Great Love pursuing these places in us.  Yes the devil will try to stir things up, but many things God allows so we can see where we are at – litmus test.
God is looking to break into our lives if we will let Him and breakthrough every bondage and fear and be let loose in and through our lives as the WILD GOD that He is!!!

God is tearing down mindsets and paradigms of who He is and how He functions and what is on His Heart to do in this hour.
He wants to be let loose…….break down every box and let Him out!
He wants to have HIS WAY in each of our lives  ……..He wants a place where HE IS FREE with NO limitations – with our minds, hearts, watches……Free to be GOD……..

Where is that place?????  His Eye is searching the earth and when He finds those places He moves……..He wants to show us who He really is and teach us afresh WHO He really is – this amazing God of ours.
He wants to show us that He hears our prayers and is more than able to answer faith filled prayers of those who HEAR from heaven and pray His Kingdom Come – His Will be done……..not if it be thy will…….but THY KINGDOM  COME THY WILL BE DONE ONE EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!

Song of His Heart by eagledove

Song of His Heart

Jen Brinton
 
If I lean back
And press my ear to Your chest
Will I hear the song in Your heart?
The song that lingers in the air
Aeons after the final note is sung
Having flowed from an uncreated mouth
Bringing forth the seen and unseen realms
Mysteries beyond words
That only melodies express
Corresponding with light, colors, smells
Of what do You now sing?
To whom are Your lauds directed?
Do You gaze lovesick at Your glorious Bride?
Does wonder fill You?
Though You cannot be surprised
Do You still experience awe?
What tune plays on the organ of Your heart?
Whooshing through the pipes
Altogether glorious and infinite?
Is it the delicate notes of light
Accompanied by depths?
Or the tickling of keys
Likened to a light spring rain?
Or a full range – a wall of sound?
What was the great music
Which You orchestrated from the beginning?
Do the angels dance to the rhythm of Your heart?
Does all of creation live and move in an intricate concert
All based on the tone that You set?
I place my heart in Your hands, and ask
That You tune it to be in harmony with Yours!

Sons of God Arising by eagledove

SONS OF GOD ARISING
Karen Elliott

All creation groans in anticipation
For the coming of the Sons of God
All creation waits with wondrous animation
For this hope of glory to arise

See the lilies as they twist and spin
Waiting for the day
When they will finally be set free
From all this bondage and decay

To release creation from the frustration
That it is subjected to
With eager expectation of this revelation
To be liberated anew

They are the ones who overcome
By the blood of the lamb
Loving not their lives even unto death
Their allegiance is to I AM

Freedom is their battle cry
Spoken with every breath
These are the ones who will ascend His hill
And remain upon His path

With clean hands and pure hearts
A holy generation
Walking in their inheritance
Heaven their destination

I’ll Give You This by eagledove

I’ll Give You This

Donna Milham

Acts 3:1-6 TPT
One afternoon Peter and John went to the temple for the three o’clock prayer. [a] 2  As they came to the entrance called the Beautiful Gate, [b] they were captured by the sight of a man crippled from birth being carried and placed at the entrance to the temple. He was often brought there to beg for money from those going in to worship. 3  When he noticed Peter and John going into the temple, he begged them for money. 4  Peter and John, looking straight into the eyes of the crippled man, said, “Look at us!” 5  Expecting a gift, he readily gave them his attention. 6  Then Peter said, “I don’t have money, but I’ll give you this—by the power of the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk!”

Peter and John CAPTURED by the sight of a man crippled – being carried to the place by the Gate Beautiful – to beg – again!
This man’s daily routine, with no hope of anything ever changing.
The man NOTICED them going into the temple
When they say to him – ‘LOOK AT US’– this man was expecting a gift– so he gave his attention. Peter and John were captured – surely they had seen him there before – BUT after Pentecost THEY SEE AS JESUS SEES – the lame, the broken, the needy – with the eyes of His Heart. They are bold – they are compassionate – they are convinced of Who is in them – LOOK AT US –
They don’t hem and haw and try to find an opening in conversation.
This is Kingdom Business – Look At Us!
He thought a gift of money, a beggar’s main purpose of being at a gate, funds for daily life.

I’LL GIVE YOU THIS!

GOD had a gift – the eternal gift of Life Everlasting and His healing grace
This man never to beg again – never be outside the worship, the fellowship or being valued
Never again being carried
I wonder how many people did this man go to and say – ‘look at me’ – I have been healed in the Mighty Name of Jesus and so I say to you…….
I once was blind and did not see the needs of those around me.
Caught up in my own world of ‘self’ I walked by the ‘familiar’ sights and sounds and people.
Like a ‘dull roar’ in the background, never fully aware –
SUDDENLY He comes
Third Person of the Trinity – Holy Spirit
And I see – I truly see
I truly feel – I truly know
The Crucified Risen King of Glory
And the ‘dull roar’ becomes the cries of the needy I did not hear
I have only one thing to offer – I’ll Give You This – by the power of the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth – stand up and walk. Truly Live – fully alive!

And There Was Nothing Further They Could Say by eagledove

And There Was Nothing Further They Could Say

 Donna Milham

Acts 4:13-14 TPT – ‘The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courage of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had
never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them
simply by spending time with Him. Standing there with them was the healed man, and there
was nothing further they could say”.

Simple ordinary men, filled with the Holy Spirit, and from time spent with Jesus,
Bold and compassionate
Uneducated and uncompromised
Saw and responded with Heaven’s commission
Heal the sick, raise the dead…………
The results of raw obedience stood in their midst
Lame crippled legs
Fully restored
Shouted without apology
Declared without explanation
HE IS ALIVE
Arrested for healing and preaching
Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Now all are silenced
Nothing further that anyone could say
The TRUTH of their words
Proven in action
A lame man
Walks, leaps, rejoices
He was with them
He did not run from persecution
He once was a lame beggar
He is now a healed son
And all are silenced
The Resurrection; The Life
Is in their midst
For over 45 years this man suffered the shame of begging at a gate
His miraculous creative miracle
Silenced the mockers
All the people praised God
All the leaders sat in their anger
Unable to refute the TRUTH
That was in broad display before them
“and there was nothing further they could say”!

Wonders by eagledove

WONDERS

Karen Elliott

I was recently out with friends worshiping and singing praises to our wonderful King and making decrees and declarations over the land.  I always like to have my camera ready because the Lord often shows me supernatural happenings in the natural and I love to capture it on camera if I can.  Oh, that our eyes would be open to see His wonders all around us.

On this particular evening, my attention was drawn to the sky.  What is it that you see in the photo? Perhaps you only see clouds, and that’s okay. You could ask the Lord to open the ‘eyes of your heart’ to see what He may want to show you.

What I see clearly is the host of heaven, and even the great cloud of witnesses peering over the balcony of heaven watching and participating in our praises and declarations.  To me, this is a beautiful confirmation that Heaven is all around us and involved in all we are doing. We are not alone!

My thoughts went to the place we find ourselves as a people, as a nation, as well as the nations all around the world at this moment in history, and how heaven is watching to see how we, as God’s people will respond to the chaos and darkness that seems to be flooding the earth, and remembering that we were born for such a time as this. I believe they are active participants with us as we respond from our position of being seated in heavenly places in Christ.

Although we need to have an awareness of what is happening around us in this natural realm, our eyes must be focused on our True source of all, that is The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit, and on what He is saying and doing.

Of course, we know this, so let us live it.

Help us Lord, in any area of our lives that we are not living as Your true sons and daughters. Forgive us for living beneath what you gave Your life for.

It is crucial for us, as God’s sons and daughters, to live in the reality of the supernatural realm, the eternal realm, remembering that we are spirits first, who have a soul and live in a body.

May this be the way we consciously live. We are in the world but not of it.

Let us live in God’s enabling grace and access all Christ bought and paid for on the Cross, that He would receive the reward of His suffering.

In this world we will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, for Christ has overcome the world.
 
Hebrews 12:1-3 “Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us through off everything that hinders, and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, and let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before Him, endured the Cross, scorning it’s shame, and sat down at the right hand of the Throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men so that you do not grow weary or lose heart.”

Three Days by eagledove

Photo by Karen Elliott (Sunrise at Good Harbor Beach, Gloucester, MA)

Three Days
by Jen Brinton

Three days of astonishing drama ––
The worst of humanity’s sin
In deep contrast to Love Himself…
You looked past the mire,
Knowing there was gold beneath
You bore weight without measure
The intangible becoming tangible
Even as you were crushed…
The earth itself broke open
As if it were loathe to witness such a deed
The sky became black
The dead rose
The Temple veil was torn

Were the people in terror?
Was the Temple in an uproar?
Did the animals scatter in fear?

Much happened in three days…
Three days, which must have seemed like three centuries
To the ones who had followed You for three years
To the ones You healed and set free ––
To the ones who forgot Your love and denied You
To the ones whose hope seemed lost
What sorrow and regret must have filled their hearts!

You said You would destroy “this temple” and rebuild it in three days
No one suspected You meant Your own body!
You said the Son of Man would be lifted high ––
But we assumed You meant on a throne!
We knew You were kingly,
But we didn’t realize that You are the King of Kings.
We thought we knew what You were talking about,
But when faced with the Cross,
We realized that we barely knew a thing.

But on the third day
The impossible became reality
Death and the grave could not hold You back!
Hell’s iron grip was as frail cobwebs
Before the explosion of resurrection power that burst open the sealed tomb!
Nothing can stand in the way of the Great I AM,
Not even death itself!
