GOD SPEAKS THROUGH QUICKENED
“Blessed are your eyes for they see: and your ears, for
(Matthew 13:16 KJ)
He first began teaching me that
He speaks through my eyes when I would hear His still
small voice say something and then microseconds later my
eye would either land upon something, or be drawn to
change directions and suddenly glance at something that
was a direct confirmation to what I had just heard. I
finally learned to be sensitive to His drawing my eyes
and to listen to the spiritual parables of what I was
viewing. In my level of faith, I do not look for signs,
they simply come to me with a quickened eye glance to
something that I am thinking about or carrying on my
One day I went to meet my son at the mall earlier than
we planned. As I was asking God where he was, my eyes
fell on a poster advertising the small video arcade. I
turned completely around and walked back to that
location. Sure enough, he was happily zooming the joy
Another time as I was listening to a car radio sermon, I
heard a story about a man who was locked in prison with
a ball and chain. When the king pardoned him, they were
to weigh his ball and chain on the scales. He was to
receive the weight of the ball and chain in 100 percent
pure gold. Just as I was thinking how precious that
was, I came to a stop light. I glanced at the license
plate in front of me; it said, “GOLD RUSH.” Suddenly
that sermon was relevant (quickened) to me, and I
realized the Lord was talking to ME! (Revelation)
Lord uses this method of talking to us, especially when
we are reading. Sometimes our eyes will tell us He is
speaking even before our brains register what we are
seeing or hearing. Once we know that He uses our eyes,
then we can tune in and take the “time to ponder” where
our eyes have fallen. If your eyes have been drawn
toward a place on the page, take the time to LOOK WHERE
YOU GLANCE. He may open your “spiritual” eyes to a
I was wanting to spend some time with the Lord rereading
old journal notes that had been organized on the
computer and printed out. As I turned to the table of
contents my eyes fell on a certain title. I thought to
myself, “No I don’t want to read that one, I’ll try
something else!” So I turned to another section in the
notebook. After noting the title, I quickly decided
that I’d better read that page! It was the same one I
had ignored in the Table of Contents. After I read it,
I repented and told the Lord He certainly knew better
may have a goal of looking for a particular verse in the
Bible when He has already spoken what HE wants to share
through where your eyes glanced. Part of recognizing
this is remembering what you are thinking while you are
looking. He so often talks to us this way and we miss
it because we are lost in our pursuit. He wants
relationship with us when we sit with Him. Slow down
and enjoy Him.
The key to tuning into where we glance, is remembering
what we were thinking at the time of the glance. That
may sound simple, but our minds wander. When we
practice remembering, we begin to realize just how
much. However, with this new habit in place the Lord
will open many avenues of hearing Him in our
surroundings. It becomes a true joy of discovery.
CHRIST IN YOU
I think my favorite ways of
hearing the Lord talk to me is through quickened eye
glances because it is so intimate. He lives inside of
us, and once we begin to really understand that, it puts
a whole new perspective on intimacy and oneness in Him.
This intimacy is something I
absolutely LOVE in recognizing His quickened eye
glances. He first started training me that He speaks
through my eyes by hearing His still small voice. I
would hear a single word or a phrase and then instantly
my eyes would land on something, or be drawn into a
certain direction before they landed on something. It
would be like finding an Easter egg or a hidden treasure
unveiled right before my eyes. I would have such joy
over those times.
And here is the most, the very
most intimate part about it. One day as I was rejoicing
over hearing Him this way, He shared with me, "Christ
in you, the hope of glory." I suddenly realized
there is nothing more intimate than having Him so close,
so near that He lives inside. The Almighty God lives
inside of us! And He remains hidden until we start
becoming consecrated and learning to lay our flesh down
and be drawn by His Spirit.
I once had a vision of my being
inside and encased in white armor. As I was peering out
the face shield, I pulled back and took a look at the
inside of this armor. I suddenly had the knowledge that
Jesus was there inside the armor with me, and then
together we stepped forward and put our eyes into the
peep holes of the armor and looked.
Col 1:27 NKJV
To them God willed to make
known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery
among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you , the hope of
Luke 17:21 NKJV
"The kingdom of God does not
come with observation; nor will they say, 'See here!'
or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within
John 14:17-18 NKJV
...the Spirit of truth, whom
the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him
nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you
and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I
will come to you.
DRAWN BY HIS SPIRIT AND QUICKENING
One day, after I was trained
that HE was drawing my eye gates, I started "hearing"
His Word without actually hearing His still small voice.
They would land on something and it would be "quickened"
to me in some way. This quickening sometimes would be
accompanied by immediate understanding, but sometimes I
would only feel drawn by it and it would stir me
somehow. I had learned the experience of His quickening
upon things, and so I stop and consider where my eye
lands. And then all of a sudden, the "veils" are removed
and the revelation hits me (ha! right between the eyes!)
and I KNOW what He is saying to me at that instant....
all because He taught me this secret power of being
perceptive to where my eyes are being drawn.
GUARD YOUR OWN EYE GATES
Demonic doors of drugs, etc can
open the porthole to receive demonic visions. So, it is
very important to be able to put confidence in what we
see by dedicating our eyes to the Lord and consecrating
our eye gates to Him. If you have not read how to have
consecrated and holy visions, please
Matt 6:22-23 NKJV
The lamp of the body is the
eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will
be full of light . But if your eye is bad, your whole
body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light
that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
Prov 20:12 NKJV
The hearing ear and the
seeing eye, the LORD has made them both.
Prov 20:11-12 NKJV
Even a child is known by his
deeds, Whether what he does is pure and right. The
hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made them
EXAMPLES OF QUICKENED EYE GLANCES
PRECIOUS QUICKENED EYE GLANCE:
Today at the grocery store, I heard the Lord say, “Plant
her.” Then my eye immediately fell onto a title of a
can of peanuts called Planters.
I have waited a long time for
the Lord to fulfill this promise. He is doing that now.
WORD TO PONDER: A TIME TO PLANT
You were moved through no fault
of your own. Your roots have been deeply disturbed. Yes
the waste has fallen by the wayside, but you, My
precious planting, have been uprooted. I know your
pain. I AM here to give you hope.
I will give you a delightful
season to be re-established. It will be a time of
confirming, a time to root down and wax firmly. I will
strengthen you and you shall no longer doubt and falter.
Rest in My love for you. I AM coming soon to do this
new thing. Receive My encouragement.
"Behold I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will
even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the
desert." (Isaiah 43:19)
ROOTS AND WINGS
HEARD: Wings and prayer.
CONFIRMATION QUICKENED EYE
GLANCE: My eyes fell on the word wings at Shari's
Restaurant, immediately after I heard the above.
QUICKENED BUMPER STICKER: On
loan from God.
QUICKENED MEMORY QUOTE:
There are 2 lasting gifts we can give our children.
Roots and wings.
WORD TO PONDER: EMPTY NEST
You have heard of the poem,
“There are two lasting gifts you can give your children.
One is roots and the other is wings.” I know this has
been close to your heart being given both in your own
life. And now that a generation has passed and you have
given your children both, you wonder if your assignment
is done. Far from it, My child! I hear you asking,
“What's next, Papa?”
Did you forget that I too have
given you roots and wings? You will not be left behind,
My love. Rather, you will be flying with your children.
Together you shall enjoy My anointing and together you
shall be lifted up into My Presence. So take courage
and hope in your heart that I am not through with you
yet. We have just begun, the best is yet to come.
“You have seen what I did to
the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings and
brought you to Myself.” (Ex 19:4-5 NKJV)
MY TREASURED JEWEL
PHRASE ON THE CD SONG: While I
was driving, I had just heard the phrase in a song, “Oh
the tears of those now weeping, they shall become
crystallized jewels. They are now the seeds of joy.”
QUICKENED MEMORY: Then I
thought of the large diamond jewel that my friend had in

road was called Diamond.
Ps 56:8-9 NKJV
You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your
book? When I cry out to You, then my enemies will turn
back; This I know, because God is for me.
WORD TO PONDER: MY TREASURED
Your worth is so much more than
you have deemed possible, My love. Each one of your
loving moments have been recorded in My book of memories
and I have not forgotten. All your tears, all your
yearnings, all your dreams, all your hopes, all your
promises, all your Words, all your prayers, all your
joys and all your sorrows. As you have entrusted them
to Me, I have turned them into beautiful diamonds. Did
I not say you are My treasured jewel? And I will reward
you and adorn you with a bountiful harvest of heavenly
riches that is far surpassing anything you ever deemed
“Then those who feared the
LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and
heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before
Him for those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His
name. "They shall be Mine," says the LORD of hosts, "On
the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare
them as a man spares his own son who serves him." Then
you shall again discern between the righteous and the
wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not
serve Him. (Mal 3:16-18 NKJV)
WALKING WITH THE CHILDREN
HEARD: Hidden among the
brethren. Baby face. Lion.
CONFIRMATION QUICKENED EYE
GLANCE: I looked up at the CreationScapes TV screen that
was showing creation scenes, scriptures and Christian
music. The scene was a resting kitten.
ANOINTED HANDS SCRIPTURE: Then
I turned with anointed hands to:
“And He called a little
child to Himself and put him in the midst of them, And
said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change,
turn about) and become like little children [trusting,
lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the
kingdom of heaven [at all]. Whoever will humble himself
therefore and become like this little child [trusting,
lowly, loving, forgiving] is greatest in the kingdom of
heaven. And whoever receives and accepts and welcomes
one little child like this for My sake and in My name
receives and accepts and welcomes Me.” Matt 18:2-5 AMP
HEARD: I am with you. I will
go with you. I am not losing you.
QUICKENED EYE GLANCE: I glanced
up again and the CreationScapes screen had turned to
a mother duck and a bunch of babies.
The scripture on the screen
Mark 10:16 NKJV
Then they brought little
children to Him, that He might touch them; but the
disciples rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus
saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, "Let
the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them;
for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to
you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a
little child will by no means enter it." And He took
them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed
HEARD: I shall establish
I WILL BE RAISING ROLE MODELS
In the days to come, I will
establish role models where the “fathers” and the youth
bond together. These “fathers” will continue with them
through life. They shall teach the youth and the youth
will be blessed as they take heed to their counsel. All
shall follow after Jesus' example.
“And I will set up shepherds
over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no
more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking,
