Eye For The Spirit-Part 6

Posted By on Wednesday, April 06, 2016

Have you ever sat in an audience, and the Spirit came on you to give a message in prophecy or tongues or interpretation, and your heart pounds to beat the band? Very often that is the signal that this is it. It is some reaction of the Spirit, but for me, it was the signal. I stood up and said, “Students, I have a confession to make.” Whew! You could have heard a pin drop.

I could hear them think, “Brother Beuttler?” The silence was so loud it hurt my ears, if you know what I mean. But I told them what happened; told them what I did; and asked for their forgiveness. It was not easy, but I did it. When I did that, one of the young men, a student, jumped to his feet and gave a powerful utterance in prophecy.

I’ll give you part of it. Some of it I withhold. I am afraid to share that. I do not share everything. It was obviously addressed to me, and started out by saying, “Because you have done this thing, and have humbled yourself in the sight of this congregation; therefore the Lord, your God, will raise you up and make you a city set on a hill; and cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth...” It went on with some more, but I do not want to share that.

When I heard that, I broke and wept. I wept, and knelt right down on the floor between the seats and wept like a baby. I went to pieces, and as I did, the Lord spoke right in here (stomach area), in words that I heard. The Spirit spoke as clear as a bell, sharp as a razor, “Go and teach all nations.” If I had not made that confession, He would never have said this.

It may well be as we go through the day, and you see what is in store for us; it may well be that the Spirit of God will create a hunger, a thirst, a desire in your heart for some of these things that I expect to share with you. And in doing so, in your response, it may well be, that He will put His finger on something to straighten out first of all. You understand what I mean? The Spirit works that way. So the Lord spoke precisely as I told you.

Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love Him.”

I had no idea; it would have never occurred to my mind that when the Lord said, “Go and teach all nations,” that that would reap such immense proportions. I have traveled for 22 years, crisscrossed the world over and over again. My feet have stood in more than 100 countries. In some of them so often, I could not even tell you how often. When I think of all the mileage, of all the ministry for over 22 years, over a half a million miles of air travel. That would have never dawned on my mind.

As we respond to the Lord, we have no inkling what God will do, what He has in store for you and for me.

“But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God.” I Corinthians 2:10-11
