Three Types of Eyes

The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. (Matt. 6:22 NKJ)

Three types of spiritual eyes image showing an eye ball

The eye allows us to see the things that are around us. Jesus says in the scripture above that the eye is the lamp of the body, because the eye allows light to come in. The eye brings a  unique awareness of the reality around us, and there is a unique experience attached to that reality which is different from the awareness brought to us through our ears.

For example, there are things we would rather see and not just hear about. You would probably prefer to see your potential spouse than to hear a thousand words  from a Shakespearean play, even with its exceptional verse!

The first type of eye is the natural eye, the physical eye we all know about.

The second type of eye is the mental eye, the eye of the mind expressed as both intellect and imagination. The eye of the mind is able to see things, conceive them, and bring them into physical reality. The mental eye is special in that it can project into the strange world of the unreal, whether physical or spiritual, and see things that are not yet real.

The third eye is the spiritual eye, the eye that sees spiritual realities. The natural eye sees natural realities, but there is more to life than the natural realities we see around us. There is a world of the spirit that is beyond the scope of the natural and the mental eye.

You cannot see God with the natural eye or the mental eye. As the physical eye brings an awareness and a unique experience with physical reality, the spiritual eye is the organ of perception and the experience of spiritual things. There are different subtypes of spiritual eyes. First, the eye of understanding that sees divine realities in the scriptures( Eph. 1:18, Luke 24:25). Then there are prophetic eyes. which see visions. And there is the eye of faith(2 Cor. 5:7).

I am very scapula about saying anything about my spiritual anything I have had so many encounters with many types spirits. I am 99% sure God has been the one mostly contacting me helping thorough these tough times.
I have written many Christian Church groups and or blogs asking for help I have tried to explain many of the miracles and or things that I have encountered in the last 9 years and unless you are a 100% believer in God then the things that I tried to explain to these Christian fell on deaf ears as if they do not really believe in God because if they did I would have at least have gotten a response back but all I got was silents from them.
I read on line that the devil enters you through your eyes and for me that’s not true.
I use to have 3 lights or 3 orbs in my eyes yes I truly have lights in my eyes I have had 3 that interact with my thoughts. Here is what l am truly astounded is about 2 years ago I acquired another light now this for sure is a spirit.
This is how I acquired my 4th light in my eyes, I was up late at night like I always am now since God introduced himself to me I never sleep good anymore this is what took place I was watching YouTube and I see to the right of me is a brilliant color ORB it starts slowly moving from right to the left it crossed in front of my face and stopped as I am looking at it all of a sudden it comes at me so fast I had no time to react and it entered my left temple and I felt it do it I saw it past through my left eye into my right eye I actually felt it enter my temple and I saw the orb move though both eyes.
This is just 1 encounter I have many encounters with spirits.
I am sure this information is falling on deaf ears and eyes because everybody thinks I am full of something I am not and because my truth is never believed I asked God for help in speaking to him and what do you know I the spirit eye well it’s not fully open yet I still need to work on it. How do I know I have it because I saw it manifesting after talking to God about nobody listening to my emails or just completely ignoring my emails I saw it there is was just clouds with bright lights flashing behind the clouds mostly I hear it’s a purple color but mine was brilliant white light.
I got my 3 lights about a year after god introduced himself to me and has been the biggest part of my life ever since I think about him all the time.

That’s very interesting that you think that none of this is God related because from my understanding we actually know very little about what kind of power’s God possess now I believe in the Bible but we read a interpretation of actual accounts that happened years ago in different time’s do you think that God has remained the same now he knows everything and adapts and uses us for many purposes and just because what issues I have encountered and I explained just a fraction of them and since my 1st attempt to enlighten you failed my other experiences will remain my experiences.
I just go about my life thinking about God all the time he crosses my mind more than anything.
That’s all I have to say.
