THROUGH EYES of FIRE SERIES #12
BY: DANIEL YORDY
SEALED in the MIDST of the STORM
The desire to bring the prophetic word of Christ under the control of the intellect of man is overwhelming in
God gives understanding; more than that, there is nothing in the Bible that God does not intend for us to know,
But only those who are blind will ever see, and only those who are ignorant will ever know.
Jesus answered and said to them,
To judge “according to the flesh” is not to judge by evil, but by gross ignorance. And to pass judgment based on
The modern mind judges all things by ignorance. “If I do not know a thing, that thing does not exist.” Two

Intelligence versus stupidity is not related to level of IQ. I picture two young men I taught in the public school.
Adam had an IQ likely as high as 2000, and he was pretty dumb.

Christ is common, ordinary, and familiar, the fellow sitting next to you at church. Evil is common, ordinary, and
God is so different from what people think.
There is no question in my mind that the greatest storm to hit humanity on this earth since the time of Noah is
Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.”
The storm is real, but we do not concern ourselves overly much about the storm, except to understand it and not
Sealed in the midst of the storm.
This is the final piece in the foundation before we consider the prophetic Word of Christ, asking the Father to
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. . .Romans 12:2
People do two things to this word of sealing in Revelation 7; they deify it on the one hand and Judaize it on the

Let's start with Ezekiel. Many different times over the years, I have read – drank – of Ezekiel Chapters 1-10 in a

Let's bring in all of Ezekiel 9.
Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.
Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn at his side; and the Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”
To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” And they went out and killed in the city.
So it was, that while they were killing them, I was left alone; and I fell on my face and cried out, and said, “Ah, Lord God! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out Your fury on Jerusalem?”
Then He said to me, “The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land is full of bloodshed, and the city full of perversity; for they say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see!’ And as for Me also, My eye will neither spare, nor will I have pity, but I will recompense their deeds on their own head.”
Just then, the man clothed with linen, who had the inkhorn at his side, reported back and said, “I have done as You commanded me.”
The God who fills us full is Love. An essential part of Love is Wrath. At times, Wrath must be the vanguard of

“Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”
Do we weep over the limitation of Christ?
I have wept over the limitation of Christ for many years and now more than ever.
Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. . . Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
It's all the same word. It's all a groaning over the limitation of Christ and over the elimination of death.
We cannot invent this groaning, but we can give ourselves to it, knowing it is God in us.
People write to me sharing how they are just unable to fit into all the “Christian” stuff with which they were once
In contrast there are others who see wrong and error in brethren all around them who do not groan in that way,
To speak against other believers is to speak against the Holy Spirit, not something we want to do.
All judgers commit the iniquity they judge worse than those they judge. It's a simple law of human psychology
Our groaning is the opposite of religious judgment; it is a groaning over the limitation of Christ, both in us and
We tremble when He speaks; God is in our mouth.
I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.
His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
As I shared earlier, it is a mistake to see the vision of John as a chronology. Certainly there are things that happen
Now, what if we were walking along one day, minding our own business, being good Christians in all that we
If it happened that way, we would be utterly in SIN.
Whatever is not of faith is sin; without faith it is impossible to please God.
No one will ever know anything of God unless they believe against the sight of their eyes and against the

Look at the words,
What are these words really saying?
“God, I hate the way You made me (I am surely not like Christ). God, there is curse upon my forehead.”
The lie and the curse.
At the end of my last letter, I stated the lie and the curse more clearly than I have ever known. Let me repeat that
The lie said that Christ is not our life; the curse said that we have a life not His.
We do not know the lie; we do not regard the curse.
The Word is in your mouth, this Word of Faith that we speak.
The name, “My God,” is written upon my forehead right there inside the name, “New Jerusalem,” the city of God. Written alongside “My God” is Jesus' new name as well; Jesus' new name is written on my forehead. My eyes are like a flame of fire, and on my head are many crowns. No one else knows this new name of Jesus written upon me. I am clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and my name is “The Word of God.” I am His face, and His name is on my forehead.
Is this true or not? Is Christ maybe someday, or is Salvation today?
Do we enter in by faith, or do we wait for sight first? Do we believe only after we see?
The truth is – the only thing we will ever see is what we believe to be true first. All see what they believe, never

“Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.”
Jesus' command to us to ask is so very important. You see, God is true; the problem is entirely our perception.
And our perception is why the mind is at the center of God's present work and why it must be sealed.
When we were born again, God altered our spirit, made it new and incorruptible, entirely alive in Him, and thus,
Spirit, God began to alter our souls, our psyches. The fullness of Tabernacles is when God alters our bodies,
The reason God takes time to alter our psyches is that He is kind. We are very psychological beings, and when I

What does it mean to be sealed in the forehead?
To be sealed in the forehead is to perceive all reality as it really is, seeing from the throne, out through eyes of

“Father, You say in Your word that I am transformed by the renewing of my mind. You say that You write Your name, the very New Name of Christ upon my forehead; You speak of my being sealed in my forehead before the storm hits. Father, You are speaking of the gospel of Christ; You are speaking of the Cup that turned to Joy in Jesus' heart. Father, Your word is Your will for me. I ask according to Your will.
“Father, I ask You to write Your name, 'God,' upon my forehead as the visible evidence that I am filled with all the fullness of God, according to the gospel. Father, I ask You to write Jesus' new name upon my forehead in all that you mean by Your metaphor, as the proof that Christ is indeed my only life. Father, I ask that You write the words, 'New Jerusalem,' upon my mind, as the sign of Your Spirit flowing out from me as rivers of living water.
“Father, I ask You to seal my mind utterly in You, that I am no longer susceptible to any thought, any vibration, any energy that is not flowing out of You through me. Father, I ask that, from here on through, I will see all things through seven eyes of Fire, through the lens of Your Spirit, that I will walk knowing as You know and seeing as You see.
“And Father, having asked according to Your will, I keep the Word Jesus spoke. I believe that You have given me, that I have received in all fullness all that I have asked.
“Thank you, Father, that Your name is there, in neon lights, upon my forehead. I will never again be conscious of any other name. Thank you, Father, that Jesus' new name, the name of the victorious, ascended Christ, covers my forehead, my face, my whole body. Thank you, Father, that my mind and forehead are utterly sealed into you, that I have the mind of Christ. Thank you, Father, that I am Your Jerusalem, the city of David, and that Life is always flowing out from me.
“Thank you, Father, that I see all things through eyes of Fire, through Your eyes. Thank you, Father, that my judgment is true, for I am never alone, but I see always through You, who always fills me full.
“And Father, I know You, that You always do way more than I ask, or even can imagine. I know that all these things are true of me, now and forever.”
Do you see how asking removes all question and doubt. Someone may say, “But, but, but!!!” And we say, “Hey, I'm just being obedient to Jesus. Since God's word is His will, I'm just believing that I have already received all that I have asked. I call those things that “be not” as though they are.”
That is, of course, the prophetic Word of Christ; it is the only witness that is real.
Now, having asked, and having believed that we have what we ask, the thought “I wish God would seal my mind,”
Faith is specific to the Word God speaks. If there is no Word, there can be no faith, only unbelief, that is,
Faith is the proof of things that are not visible. If we could “see” it, there would be no faith, and we would remain
Now here is what happens in the human psyche. The one who says, “I wish,” is sealed – seals himself – in “I wish”
But the one who says, “I am what God speaks,” sees his mind change to fit this new way of seeing.
Through eyes of fire!
Human consciousness flows out of seeing. Our perception is governed by how we see. That is why the name of

God will not change your mind apart from you. If He did so, it would be separate from faith and thus sin.
