A Vision of Greater Discernment on God’s People
By Jo Ellen Stevens
now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known,” 1 Corinthians 13:12.
I saw a vision of myself talking
to a person and all at once this person stepped out of their body and it was suddenly like I could hear what they were saying before, but now their spirit was saying what they really meant!
It was as if
I was hearing them say one thing in the body, but when they stepped outside their body, I could hear what they truly were saying. I could see the motive and the intent of their heart!
The LORD said,
“Look on this scene, because it is going to begin to be the normal for those who are seeking My Truth.
You have cried out for Me to reveal the Truth and you have cried out for me to reveal the secrets
of men’s hearts, and now as the darkness gets darker I will be sharpening your discernment and it will be as if men will be speaking, but you will hear the intent of their hearts!”
what person knows the thoughts and motives of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So also no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God,” 1 Corinthians 2:11 (AMP).
Spirit Will Show Us What He Wants Us to Know in These Days
When I was first baptized in the precious Spirit of God in the early 80’s, I began to study about who He was to us and in us and I came across the above scripture.
Suddenly The LORD began to speak to me to pray that when I was ministering to people to pray, that He (The Holy Spirit) would show me what I needed to see in their heart, so that He could minister to them by His Spirit.
(Oh don’t worry, we prophetic people do not see everything, only what he reveals).
But He began to show me things about people that I had no way of knowing in the natural. It is one of the
gifts of the Spirit which is A Word of Knowledge.
Shortly after that He gave me a song that said,
“Your ways are Higher than my ways and your
thoughts are too deep for understanding, the only thing I CAN SEE IS WHAT YOU REVEAL TO ME, oh your ways are higher than my ways.”
You see the only thing we can truly SEE outside of our natural man
is what He reveals. Anything else is fortune telling at best and witchcraft at most!
But God wants to show us what he wants us to know. All we must do is be willing and obedient to step out
with that information.
But the thing that God is wanting to do right now with that gift is give us a deeper and more clear discernment of the motivation both good and bad of the intentions of people’s
hearts even though they are lying to our face!
He said He is “Pulling Back the veil right now!”
He said the veil between heaven (where
a man or woman is spiritually speaking) and earth (where they are in the natural) is getting thinner for us who have been seeking His Face!
So He wants us to expect to see this in the days ahead!
He said there are several reasons He is “pulling back the curtain now.”
1. There is no Truth in the earth right now and He is going to begin to open many people’s eyes to
wrong motives and give them discernment of spirits.
“Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.” Isaiah 35:5.
2. He wants us to judge righteous judgement. He is going to begin to let us SEE like He sees in situations.
He is telling us to turn off the television and seek his face so
that we can SEE clearly to discern the intentions and plots of the enemy to destroy us and operate in an attitude of love and discernment toward them.
This is a part of being the MATURE body of Christ!
“Know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life?” 1 Corinthians 6:3.
3. God wants
us to see what He wants us to see in men and women’s hearts right now so that he can speak a word of healing to areas of their lives to be able to set the captives free.
This is what the gifts of
the Spirit are for and there is a great harvest right now to be reaped. These gifts will be some of the tools he will use to bring in that harvest!
Now is the time for all good men to come to the
aid of their king!
4. He wants to give us discernment to make governmental decisions that are according to His Kingdom and not the kingdom of this world!
God is wanting us to discern between the true and the false in these days of misinformation so he told me through this vision that he is sharpening the discernment of the people to sort out the false from the truth!
He said that this is what he is doing right now in all of the exposure, because He is getting us to the truth and He also said that the darker the darkness gets the more will be able to see the motives and the lies.
This is a time of RESET and God is opening our eyes to The Kingdom concepts that we want to have as we go into the New Thing He is doing in the earth!
“Then shall ye return, and discern
between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not,” Malachi 3:18.
5. Most of all, He is allowing us to hear our own motives and
our own heart and He is cleaning us up at this time! We are seeing stuff in our own lives that has been holding us back.
He has been letting us judge ourselves so that we will not be swallowed up by the
enemy in these times!
“But when we are judged, we are chastened of The LORD, that we should not be condemned with the world,” 1 Corinthians 11:32.
I Hear The LORD Saying,
“I AM giving you sharper discernment for the days ahead both for your decisions in all of the Mountains of society and I will give you sharper discernment into
your own hearts!
You are coming to the mountain of The LORD’s Government and it is time for My People to reign in the midst of the chaos through great discernment and authority!
Do not think it is strange that you will see things both good and evil in people and that you will suddenly understand things that you have not understood with your natural understanding!
AM waking up My People’s hearts to The Realm of The Spirit and I AM bringing an enlightenment to them to be able to rule and reign!
Watch and see for i will do a thing in your day that you have not
seen but you will see and you will hear with more accuracy than in the past and It will be said of My People.
They saw through a glass darkly, but now they are seeing clearly. And men having their
hearts laid bare by the words of knowledge and words of wisdom, will fall on their face and say to you what must we do to be saved!”
