2/02/17 ABOUT perception

One of the ways God speaks is through perception.  This is a knowing that comes from what we sense.  Perception is seeing with the eyes of our heart, where we receive enlightenment about what He is saying/ doing.  Perception is an experience that happens TO us where we receive a sudden understanding that we did not have before. Sometimes I have called this experience an impression, inkling, a sensing. 


Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of his calling, and what is the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,



[Lord can we enter in together?]  I see you stepping into the picture dear one.  Yes it is My desire too.



I saw a hand push back a curtain as though it was a veil.  I prayed for you.  Kingdom living.  I saw the veil being pulled back again and a figure stepping through the picture frame coming towards me.  Why wouldnít He? He has the ability to be anywhere.  His eyes are misty fire. 


You know that by My blood you have access.  That is all you need.  Trust Me.  I am here sweet one.  Not outside you.  Wealth.  Strength together.  Adopted.  You belong to Me.  That is an important part of this.  Redeemed. 


Butterfly emerging.  Transparency and veils.  I had the impression of a pair of antennas wiggling.  This is perception.  What you sense that you do not see.  Seeing IS perception sweet one.  Not just what your eye sees. But the message that is taking place.  It comes as an impartation.  Yes like a word of knowledge, you suddenly know.  Knowledge is a sudden revelation of facts.  Perception is understanding the facts. 


Gen 3:7-11 AMP+  Then the eyes of the two of them were opened [that is, their awareness increased], and they knew that they were naked; and they fastened fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.  (8)  And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool [afternoon breeze] of the day, so the man and his wife hid and kept themselves hidden from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.  (9)  But the LORD God called to Adam, and said to him, "Where are you?"  (10)  He said, "I heard the sound of You [walking] in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself."  (11)  God said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten [fruit] from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?"



Antennae (singular antenna) are sensory appendages attached to the head of butterflies and moths. Antennae are used for the sense of smell and balance. Butterflies have two segmented antennae with a small club at the end of each. ...


Near the base of the antennae, in the second antennal segment, there is also a very important organ called Johnstonís organ. It is used for balance and orientation during flight. With an antenna lacking, butterflies may be unable to fly in a particular direction and may end up flying in a circular pattern.




Acts 14:9 The same heard Paul speak: who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,



Strong's Greek Dictionary

[Lord thank You for this gift of perception.  I havenít really honored it as something I am fluent in.  I know it is there, but it is such an instinctual part of me it is hard to slow down enough to see it is a gift and a way of hearing You.]


Yes since childhood.  Wisdom beyond your age. I gave it to you.  I am teaching you. Yes your senses are important. 


[I thought of the butterfly sensing things that it doesnít see.  It can pick things up in the air probably from miles around that itís eyes cannot see.]


Perception. Do you understand?  When I arrive with a message.  It comes in package form.  Like a scroll - it unfolds.  Encounters can unfold just like this.  These come from within you sweet one.  The point of revelation is perception.  Yes, it suddenly dawns upon you.



Humility, the heart of a child.  Transparent faith. Nothing clouding what you expect.  Issues of the soul that hold you back.  Bringing you through a new layer.  New habits.  I will train you. 


First you learn everything you need to learn about perception.  Then your eyes are opened.  A careful examination.  I suddenly remembered when Paul looked at the crippled man intently and perceived he had the faith to be healed.



Precious I hear your desires to have intimacy with Me.  Learn to sit before My Presence, enter in through worship, prayer and My blood.  Finally empty yourself and wait upon Me.  As you lay all aside - the voices of need and care-  and focus on Me, I am there.  As often as your heart is turned towards Me, the veil is removed and you have access.
Practice listening to your senses through what you perceive, rather than focusing on seeing in a vision or hearing My voice.  I speak through perceptions just as I do in other means.  These perceptions are inklings or impressions that arrive as a sudden knowledge or understanding that you did not have before.  Yes it comes to you like the experience of revelation which is taking the lid off what was hidden and suddenly making it manifest.  Yet perception is not a revealing, it is an understanding.  Suddenly you see or know what you didnít understand before.

As you wait before Me and ask to perceive, I will take you on a journey of an unfolding message, that is opened like a scroll, step by step, piece by piece.  You will find that what you perceive is valid and confirmed by Me through other sources. 


Mark 2:8 And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned among themselves, he said unto them, Why reason you these things in your hearts?
