Imagine if you and a few others could see colors but everyone else in the world only saw black and white.
Think what it would be like trying to explain to them what the color purple was like, or how amazing a rainbow was. It would be almost impossible. People would call you crazy and laugh at you. How frustrating would it be, wishing they knew what you knew, saw what you saw.
That is what it is like to be a Christian.
Our eyes are open to something far greater than the ordinary. Others see the physical. We see also the spiritual. They see the effect, we see the cause. They see the natural, we the supernatural. They see the body, we see the soul.
Our eyes are open. We see the events of our day lining up perfectly with the word of God. We understand that there is a spiritual battle going on behind the scenes that explains the things that others call coincidental.
To others it is impossible that there could be a worldwide conspiracy going on, but a Christian understands that there is. A Christian recognizes the ruthless power of Satan among mankind. A Christian has been told there is a cunning and unfair enemy who makes his way through deceit and lies. This enemy blinds the eyes of man, making himself appear as an angel of light. Satan is no imaginary figure. He is a supernatural inter-dimensional being with intelligence beyond our own, who can be defeated only through the power of Jesus Christ.
Christian, when people call you crazy, when people think you’re out of your mind, when people mock you and belittle you, it is frustrating. But know that you see something they don’t. Remember that you see colors and they only see in black and white. And do not let them tell you that you don’t really see what you see! Do not let them convince you you’re wrong! Pray that God opens their eyes to what He has shown us is going on behind the scenes.
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:”
