The Spirit of Slumber

10 For the Lord has poured out upon you a spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes (the prophets), and covered your heads (the seers). 11 And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed. When men give it to one who can read, saying, ‘Read this,’ he says, ‘I cannot, for it is sealed.’ 12 And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, ‘Read this,’ he says, ‘I cannot read.’18 In that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see.” ~ Isaiah 29:10-12, 18

Could it be a spirit of slumber that has covered the whole world? In the day and age that we live in, where prophecies are being fulfilled and the days are grower more and more evil, people don’t seem to recognize the signs of the times. Isaiah says that God will pour out upon those who refuse to believe, or to obey, a spirit of deep sleep.

We need to wake ourselves up and prepare for battle. For Satan, our adversary, is prowling around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Seek the LORD so that your eyes may be opened, and your ears may be uncleared so that you may see the signs of the time. For Jesus didn’t leave us unaware of when He would return, but He promised that we would see the signs and we would know that our redemption is near.

LORD God, please open our eyes that we may take notice of the signs that are happening in our day and age. Open our ears that we may hear and differentiate between true and false prophets. Guide us, LORD Jesus, so that we may one day hear you say, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” Teach us to see the truth in all situations. In the precious and Holy name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
