"God, Show Me What The Enemy Does Not Want Me To See"

“You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
-Ezekiel 28:14 (NKJV)

“God, show me what the enemy does not want me to see.” 

I first read about this prayer in a post from Doug Addison, from October, 2013; titled "Breaking Through Your Own Ceiling".  Doug Wrote:
I had a dream this month that I was standing on a portion of land that I should have inherited from my grandfather of Cherokee descent. It was a small strip of my favorite place on his farm where I played as a child. Someone wanted to buy the small strip of land for $1000 and tried to run the transition by me quickly. I felt rushed but I decided to take a closer look and when I did I noticed a brand new speedboat parked just out of sight on the land. I knew it meant that there are ministries, and spiritual and literal inheritances that the enemy wants to rob from us.
It is time to ask God to reveal and bring forward our generational callings and gifts that we may or may not have been aware of. After this dream I began to pray with a greater authority, calling out all that the Father has for us from our generational backgrounds. This is the time to take greater authority. Ask God to reveal and bring to you generational blessings, gifts and ministries that have been held back or stolen.
My staff and I have been praying a powerful prayer I learned from Arthur Burke: “God, show me what the enemy does not want me to see.” I want to encourage you to pray this simple prayer and watch as God will indeed reveal things right now that will set you free and allow you to move forward.
I love Jeremiah 33:3, that says:
‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
I love the fact that there are secrets that God wants to tell us, if we will seek him.  God wants to show us (lost) truths, but he also wants to show us (lost) people and even help us find (lost) things.  Did you know God invented "lost & found"?

It should come as no surprise that there is stuff we don't know that God knows, so we call to God and ask him to show us these things.  Recall that James wrote, "you have not because you ask not", and Jesus said, "ask and it shall be give, seek and you shall find, and knock and the door shall be opened; for everyone who asks shall receive, and everyone who seeks shall find, and to everyone who knocks, the door shall be opened."

So, we can ask God for anything; and that's Biblical.  On the other hand, the Devil's work is to oppose God's plans (1 Peter 5:8, Rev. 12) and blind people (2 Cor. 4:3-4).  This brings us to Ezekiel 28:14, where Satan is described, who has the ability to cover or hide things.

This prayer: “God, show me what the enemy does not want me to see”, is very insightful and powerful.  Yesterday, in his prayer focus, Chuck Pierce wrote:
"This is a time to remove the covering that Satan has used to hide blessings. Ezekiel 28:14 says, “You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing wings…” WHEN HE FELL, HE KEPT COVERING OVER RESOURCES AND BLESSINGS THAT ARE IN THE EARTH. God is saying, “The covering that was over certain things -- whether it’s land, resources or favor that the enemy’s been trying to overshadow and cover -- is being ripped off and ripped open. When the angelic hosts come in, all of a sudden they re-align My people, and cause My people to get in a new formation.”
Here is a post from a guy who dared to pray this prayer, “God, what do you want me to see that the devil doesn't want me to see?”

The Two Disciples and The Two Donkeys

When they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus gave two disciples a task.  He said to them, “Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter, you will find a donkey tied up and a colt with it. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anybody says anything to you, say that the Lord needs it.” He sent them off right away.  Now this happened to fulfill what the prophet said,  Say to Daughter Zion, “Look, your king is coming to you, humble and riding on a donkey, and on a colt the donkey’s offspring.”  The disciples went and did just as Jesus had ordered them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and laid their clothes on them. Then he sat on them.
-Matthew 21:1-7

On what we call Palm Sunday, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem. But, he had two disciples get two donkeys: a mother donkey and her colt. Jesus rode the young male who had never been ridden before. In his carefulness and perhaps kindness towards these two donkeys, he had th…

Teaching vs. Indoctrination

As usual, Paul went to the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days reasoned with them from the Scriptures.
-Acts 17:2

There is a difference between teaching and indoctrination.  Education is not indoctrination.  But some secular and christian education is indoctrination masquerading as education.

If you are a teacher, whether you homeschool your children, teach at the pro level or you teach in your church; it is good to know this difference between indoctrination and true teaching.  Many people are indoctrinated today, rather than taught.

What you might notice, is that when you preach, whether you preach to a crowd or a few, it is easy to be an indoctrinator rather than a true teacher.  True teachers ask people questions and expect them to challenge and debate them.

God's Secret, Hidden People

(The children) of Elam 1,254.  -Ezra 2:7

Do you feel hidden?

The name Elam means secret or hidden.  Do you feel like you are on the shelf, not being used by God?  Maybe you are part of God's secret agents.

God has people who are in secret.

I have this idea that God has His attention on secret people.   I believe that God has rewards for secret people coming.  You may feel on the shelf, but you are actually hidden for a special purpose.  God has you in reserve.

The number one thousand, two-hundred, and fifty-four; tells us God's plan for his hidden, secret, and in reserve children

One thousand speaks of recompense.

Recompense means that you will be compensated or made amends to, due to harm or loss you suffered. In Genesis 20:16 is the story of Abimelech recompensing Abraham and Sarah.

Two speaks of fellowship, partnership, and co-laboring (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).

There are hidden people who have felt like they are "going it alone", who are about to be joined by someone.  …
