The word ‘Seer’ describes a distinct type of Prophet who receives unique prophetic revelation and impartation from God.
When we reference the Old Testament we find two words that describe the Seer. That is Ra’ah and Chozeh. Ra’ah means ‘to see’, to ‘gaze’, to ‘look upon’ and to ‘perceive’. Chozeh means ‘a beholder in vision’ and is also translated as meaning ‘gazer’ and ‘stargazer.’
A Seer is a receiver of Inspired messages from God who reveals these messages through experiences that include visions, open visions, prophetic words of knowledge, divine encounters, angelic visitations, the discerning of spirits as well as other forms of communication not listed here for God is not restricted in His ways of communicating. Not all Seers experience all of the previously mentioned forms of revelation. Some operate in a few while others may operate in them all.
THE PHYSICAL VERSUS THE SPIRITUAL
In the natural realm, we have five senses that help us relate to the tangible world that we live in. Through these five senses, we can identify how something feels, looks, sounds, smells and tastes. It is through these physical experiences that we perceive what is real to us.
The Bible makes it clear that this natural physical world that we live in is only a hint of the supernatural spiritual world that is yet to come. “The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.” 1 Corinthians 15:42-44
Then we have what makes up the spiritual realm. If we understand that what we experience in the physical is only a mere reflection of the spiritual, then it only makes sense that what exists in the spiritual can also be felt, seen, heard, smelled and tasted. A Seer is allowed access, by God, into this spiritual realm.
With this being said, you may know without a shadow of a doubt that God still speaks to His children and Prophets still exist today. Even as they existed in biblical times. Jesus gave the Prophets – as He has given all who make up the five fold ministry – for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:12-13)
Watch, read and listen for the Church is seeing a worldwide resurgence of the revelatory gifts of the Seer more now than ever before.
