Ability to hear and see in the Spirit

In Matthew 13:10, the disciples asked Jesus, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

Jesus replied in Matthew 13:11-15:-

"Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them."

This is why I speak to them in parables:
“Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand."

In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: Jesus said, "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would HEAL them.’”

Jesus further said to his disciples in Matthew 13:16-17, "But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For I tell you the truth, many PROPHETS and RIGHTEOUS men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."

Proverbs 20:12
"Ears that hear and eyes that see–
the Lord has made them both."

Jesus was telling the disciples that they could see and hear what many prophets and righteous men could not. Today, most anointed standing at the highest mountain on earth could not see or hear what the Lord is doing in these last days. Most prefer the old wine as old wine tastes better, so today some most powerful ministers that God is now using, will be left behind if they do not catch up with the amazing new things that God is doing (Isaiah 43:18-19). See link.


Every believer must burst through the gravity of the flesh to understand the freedom and the truth. The freedom is the truth where we knit in unity with Christ with the mind and DNA of Christ and bringing us into maturity resulting in the image and likeness of Christ (Ephesians 3:16-19).

This bursting through the gravity of the flesh is like a rocket being launched into space. To do this, we need God’s fire power which gives us the ‘push’ and free us from the gravity. Once we are freed from this gravity of the flesh, we are then free to work with God in unity and in Oneness (John 14:11). As a spacecraft in orbit can see earth very clearly, so will a man in such position can see things that other cannot see, even those most anointed standing at  the highest mountain on earth.

Sid Roth, in his Supernatural TV Show, interviewed Dr Michael Brown and asked, "How do we qualify to be holy?" Dr Michael Brown replied, "Holiness is beautiful- becoming like Jesus in thought, word and deed."

Becoming like Jesus in thought, word and deed is to work with Him in Oneness and to be in His will - Obedience (John 10:37-38, 14:11).

Peter did not have the mind of God and began to rebuke Jesus after He told the disciples that He must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that He must be killed and after three days rise again. Then Jesus rebuked Peter. "Get behind me, Satan! He said, "You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men" (Mark 8:31-33).

Most of the believers are like Peter who are not aligned to Jesus in thought, word and deed, and are disobedient unknowingly so they are unable to see things in the Spirit. Once we are obedient, God will allow us to see what others cannot see. "A true love of God must begin with a delight in his holiness." -- Jonathan Edwards

Watchman Nee wrote:- "There are two kinds of sin before God: the sin of rebellion - not doing what one has been told: and the sin of presumption - doing what one has not been told to do (Ps. 19:13). Rebellion is failing to do what God has charged one to do. Presumption is doing what God has not commanded at all."
