Silk: Eyes Wide Open

The following silk has an AWESOME silk story that goes with it, which you can find on the Dyed4you blog: Eyes Wide Open: A Message in Silk.

The name of this piece is Eyes Wide Open. It is comprised a combination of silks, the words of which are shared below as well as the download He shared concerning their combined meaning in addition to the name above. The silks in this are:

  • Focused on His Kingdom
  • Sword of the Spirit

The scripture connected to this is 2 Kings 6:14-18 (TLB) So one night the king of Syria sent a great army with many chariots and horses to surround the city. When the prophet’s servant got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Alas, my master, what shall we do now?” he cried out to Elisha. “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For our army is bigger than theirs!” Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes so that he could see horses of fire and chariots of fire everywhere upon the mountain! As the Syrian army advanced upon them, Elisha prayed, “Lord, please make them blind.” And he did.

Beloved, remain in a state of vigilant sobriety with both your natural and spiritual eyes wide open to see accurately as events unfold. Time is short, and the battle grows fierce. Love, truth, and peace are your strongest weapons. Use them often and use them well. Stand fast and refuse to let the enemy shift your perception of yourself, others, or the circumstances around you. Only My view matters. So ask Me.

A Prophetic Nugget from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this. It is called “Ask.”

2 Kings 6:17 (GW) Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes so that he may see.” The Lord opened the servant’s eyes and let him see. The mountain around Elisha was full of fiery horses and chariots.

Beloved, ask Me to see. I have given you eyes to see and ears to hear so you are able. There is nothing to fear, for I AM with you always. Truly, legions of angels stand at the ready, engaging on your behalf at My request in response to your prayers. So ask, beloved.

Ask to see. Ask for help. Seek Me – My hand and My assistance. I AM YHVH Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts – leader of the heavenly armies. Nothing can stand against me and succeed. So stand with Me.

Mirror My countenance – one of peace and love firmly rooted in truth – be like Me. Love like you’ll never get hurt. Eyes wide open. Knowing your heart is in My hands and it is safe there. Your pain is never wasted, beloved – I collect every tear so priceless is your heart to me. Trust Me and trust My plans for you for I AM God and I AM good.

A “Lion Bite” called “Trust Me In All Things” from Glasgow Prophetic Centre is connected to this.

Philippians 2:10 At the Name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.

Do not forget that there is a day coming when every knee will bow and every tongue confess the name of Jesus.

This day, in anticipation, bow your knee to King Jesus. Surrender, again, your life to the Almighty and He will provide heavenly treasures for you. You will lack no good thing; you will have the solutions you need, you will be well prepared for what is ahead.

“Trust me in all things,” says the Almighty.

A Prophetic Nugget called “I AM the Way Maker” from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this.

Ephesians 6:13 (AMP) …and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious].

Beloved, there are moments to fight, but there are moments where all that is left to do is stand fast. You’ve prepared, you’re equipped, you’re positioned – it’s time to simply be immovable and leave the rest to Me. Knowing you have all of heaven behind you – the hosts ready and willing to fight on your behalf – be steadfast.

This is the test of faith. To stand at the Red Sea with an enemy bearing down on you, and to trust the One who is trustworthy to make a way where there seems to be no way. I AM the way maker. I part the seas. Stand in faith allowing your stance to declare your confidence in your God – in Me. I will not let you down. I will meet you in that place for I AM faithful and I bring victory in My mighty hand.

Below are the full silk words for the pieces included in this.

The name of this silk is Focused on His Kingdom. The colors in it are:

  • Light blue representing heavens and soaring
  • Pale yellow representing divine light
  • Gray representing sword of truth rightly dividing
  • Ox blood red representing blood-bought
  • Deep dark blue representing power and authority

The scripture that goes with it is from Proverbs 4:23-27 (VOICE)

Above all else, watch over your heart; diligently guard it because from a sincere and pure heart come the good and noble things of life. Do away with any talk that twists and distorts the truth; have nothing to do with any verbal trickery. Keep your head up, your eyes straight ahead, and your focus fixed on what is in front of you. Take care you don’t stray from the straight path, the way of truth, and you will safely reach the end of your road. Do not veer off course to the right or the left; step away from evil, and leave it behind.

A word called “Turn Your Ear Toward Me” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is connected to this.

Turn your ear toward Me, says the LORD. Hear what I Am speaking. Turn off the voice of the enemy that wants to cause you to have tormenting fear and persistent doubt. The enemy never has anything good to say and he never does anything good. He will only bring darkness and defeat. He will only weaken and impoverish. He will only attempt to seduce you and rob you of your peace and joy. You need not give any heed to his negativity and do not repeat his lies. For he cannot speak the truth, and will never be able to benefit anyone. Shut him out and shut off the dark one. Give him no place, for he is not entitled to any part of your life, says the LORD.

Your life belongs to Me, as you have trusted in Me as your Savior and LORD. I have a voice, and I Am speaking. You will not hear Me condemning you. You will not hear My voice scolding you or threatening you. I will not speak ill of My children that I have redeemed by My own blood. I have good thoughts that I think of you, and good things reserved for you. I will bring you higher, not lower. I will comfort you, not wound you. I will heal you, not sicken you. I will rescue you, not put you in bondage. Hear My voice and know that I Am the giver of all good gifts, and I daily load you with benefits, not problems and difficulties. My goodness is GOOD, and My mercy is merciful. My kindness is KIND and My love is not destructive. I will build you up, hold you up, comfort you and give you peace. It is My love for you that I want you to focus on, and My voice that speaks sweet peace to you all the time, says the LORD.

A “Prophetic Nugget” called “Sober and Singleminded” from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this.

Proverbs 4:25 (AMPC) Let your eyes look right on [with fixed purpose], and let your gaze be straight before you.

Beloved, resist the urge to be sidetracked or to lose focus. I have given you purpose and a call, and behold it is good and worthy – worthy of your time, attention, and focus. So keep your gaze fixed, not looking to the left or to the right, and not wasting time looking back – for I AM your rear guard and I go before you, there is nothing to fear.

The cares of this world may try to draw you in through worry and fear, and the temptations of this world will seek to lull you into complacency, but you know – you know, beloved – that time is short. So be sober and singleminded in purpose. Expand the Kingdom and make My name great.

A “Lion Bite” called “Focus” from Glasgow Prophetic Centre is connected to this.

Proverbs 4:25 “Let your eyes look straight ahead: fix your gaze directly before you.”

The Lord says “Focus. Focus your gaze on me. Focus on who I am; on my word and my presence. I am with you, and I am for you and all you require in your day comes from me. So even now, focus your internal gaze on me. I am your constant one; I am with you in the highs and lows of life and your days. I will not leave you bereft at this moment or the next. Fix your gaze and focus. I am all you need. Quieten your inner turmoil. Breathe in my peace and receive it at this moment. Focus on me. I am all you need.”

As you worship and pray with this silk, you are not only coming into agreement with this word over yourself, but declaring it in the heavenlies over those around you. That each of His children would be in alignment, eyes fixed on His call for them and plans for His kingdom. Everyone moving like a well oiled machine, 1 Corinthians 12 in action. And you “see” it. He’s gifted you with that ability to see how it should be. So stay focused, see, and call it forth into being.

It’s been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Ra’ah (Seer), which is used as a readying to have ears to hear and eyes to see and a mouth to speak. The scriptures that go with this oil are:

“Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy…” 1 Corinthians 14:39 (NKJV)

“(In those days if people wanted a message from God, they would say, “Let’s go and ask the seer,” for prophets used to be called seers.)” 1 Samuel 9:9 (NLT)

The deeper meaning of this oil reads, “The Hebrew word for seer is ra’ah (H7200). Some of its meanings are to perceive, have a vision, and observe. This word is more than just about “glancing” at something. This is a seeing that has depth and insight – revelation. “Seeing” is a type of prophetic revelation and a “Seer” is one who functions in that gifting.”

The name of this silk is Sword of the Spirit. The colors in it are:

  • China red representing war / warfare
  • Golden yellow representing counsel of God
  • Light blue representing Spirit of God
  • Deep dark blue representing YHVH Sabaoth (LORD of Hosts)
  • Pearl shimmer representing hosts of heaven
  • Silver shimmer representing armor of God 

The scriptures that go with it are:

  • Ephesians 6:17-18 (TLV) And take…the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Ruach on every occasion, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, keep alert with perseverance and supplication…
  • Hebrews 4:12 (AMP) For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.
  • Psalm 18:30 (AMPC) As for God, His way is perfect! The word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in Him.

A “Lion Bite” called “Sword at the Ready!” from Glasgow Prophetic Centre is connected to this silk.

With my mighty word I sustain the universe. My word is eternal and nothing can stop it. But I say to you my children, “What have you done with my word?” Have you treasured it in your heart (Psalm 119:11)? What are you doing with my word that I have given to you – which is a mighty two edged sword to cut down the enemy?

Many are cut down and bent low under the weight of sickness, accusation and doubt. They have let their sword fall and can no longer fight and await one who would rescue them, yet they do not realise that the answer is in their hands – the sword which is my word.

So what are you doing with my word, my chosen one? Do you have your sword at the ready to cut down every accusation and suggestion of the enemy? Become a master swordsman. Treasure my word in your heart and you will overcome every attack and suggestion of the enemy. Lift my word high in your life and see what happens.

A portion of a word from Father’s Heart Ministry is connected to this silk.

The enemy can rattle his saber and make false threats but the sword of the Spirit is in your hands and not his.

Listen to My voice says the Father. I am faithful to reveal and unmask the tactics of darkness. I will keep your foot from slipping into the snare that has been laid for you. Even as I have faithfully protected and guided and guarded you in times past so I am faithful now. My mercies are renewed every morning and there is no higher purpose in view for Me other than your blessing and protection.

Put your foot forward with confidence says the Father. You will not slip. I will make your feet like that of the high mountain creatures who skip along the dizzying heights without fear for they know they were born for the high places of the earth. This is your portion says the Father. Let your heart rejoice in that destiny this day.

A “Prophetic Nugget” called “Build Your Arsenal” from our Dyed4you Ministries blog is connected to this silk.

Ephesians 6:17 (AMP) And take…the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

Beloved, if you would wield the sword of My Spirit, you must know My word. There are so many things that clamor for your attention as My word waits – unchanging and available – for you to feast. Choose to make the time. Choose to know Me – My heart, My ways, My instructions for you – for they are to protect you and bring you blessing and goodness in your life – My word is worth knowing.

The more of My word that is hidden in your heart, the stronger and more prepared you are to do battle against the enemy of your soul when he brings his onslaught. He comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I come to give you strength. The enemy will often twist My word, and just as when My Son was tempted in the wilderness and He refuted those lies with Truth – with the Word, so you must be equipped to do the same.

For it is not a question of IF the enemy will lie and twist truths, it is a matter of WHEN. Do not be found defenseless and weak, but rather prepare. Just as a lawyer spends time building his knowledgebase so he can make the arguments in court to win the day, likewise spend the time every day to build your arsenal and your strength. Again beloved, My word is worth knowing – I AM worth knowing.

A word called “My Word” from June Reinke of Prophetic Light is connected to this silk.

My Word in you is like a fire, says the LORD. My Word is Like a hammer and a two-edged sword proceeding out of your mouth. With My word, you will cut the heads of demons off. You will Cut off the heads of the giants. You will set on fire the works of the enemy and burn them to nothing. My Word in you cannot be constrained and you will be a mouthpiece that speaks My powerful Word. My Word and My Work and My will are the same. I will direct you by My Spirit within you. My Word will be unto you a lamp onto your feet and a light onto your path. It will burn up the obstacles and incinerate the weapons of darkness. It will defeat the dark one and his cohorts. My Word is light and life and you will be as I Am, light and My live in you will bring life to others. My light in you will become brighter and brighter. It will put out darkness and defeat the enemy. You will be as a city that is set on a hill that cannot be hid, says the LORD.

I have you and I AM in you, the living one, the consuming One, the powerful One, the Holy One, says the LORD. Be aware of My power and glory and light and life that I have put within and release it so that it is all around you. For I cannot be out-powered and I have given you MY WORD and counsel that will direct your steps in righteousness and holiness. BE SEPARATE onto ME and do not mix the things of darkness with the light of My glory. Do not wash out the fire that is within you says the LORD. For the words of man will fade away, but My word endures forever. I Am forever the LIVING WORD and My counsel is supreme. I will direct your steps in holiness and righteousness and you will walk on the path of the redeemed, says the LORD.

It has been prayed over and anointed with the Scent of Heaven’s Sword of the Spirit, which is used in spiritual warfare and for consecrating something for use in spiritual warfare (like the knighting process). The scriptures that go with this anointing oil are:

Ephesians 6:17 (NKJV) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

  • Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV) For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The deeper meaning reads, “Some of the oils in this blend were specifically chosen for their cleansing properties. In scripture, warfare was often used to cleanse. And in a spiritual sense, it will “cleanse” the enemy from an area or person. In the same way that a sword will be touched to both shoulders in the knighting process, this oil (sword of the Spirit) is also used to “knight” or consecrate people or things (e.g. flags or other weapons of spiritual warfare) for use in battle.”

We pray it blesses you!

After posting this, I did a Facebook live sharing the story – which includes both My Carrier of Peace (read the silk word/read the testimony) and Eyes Wide Open which is a multi-silk word comprised of Focused on the Kingdom and Sword of the Spirit (read the silk word on this page/read the testimony). I get a little rambly, but it’s fun hearing the story in addition to reading the details 🙂 I hope you’re blessed by it!
