The Seer Realm

Within the overall realm of the prophet lies the particular and distinctive realm of the seer… The word seer describes a particular type of prophet who receives a particular type of prophetic revelation or impartation.

When it comes to prophetic revelation, a prophet is primarily an inspired hearer and then speaker while a seer is primarily visual. In other words, the prophet is the communicative dimension and the seer is the receptive dimension. Whereas nabiy' emphasizes the active work of the prophet in speaking forth a message from God, ra’ah and chozeh focus on the experience or means by which the prophet “sees or perceives” that message.

All true seers are prophets, but not all prophets are seers. A prophet may have the particular grace to hear and proclaim the word of the Lord and yet not necessarily function as profusely in the revelatory visionary capacity as a seer does. The seer, on the other hand, may move quite remarkably in this visionary dream capacity yet not be as deep in the inspirational audible graces of hearing and speaking. Nevertheless, both move and operate in the prophetic realm, but in different capacities or dimensions.

“[The seer realm] of prophetic anointing has a lot to do with quietly waiting on God. Quite often impartation in the seer realm comes only after a time of patient waiting and contemplative meditation upon the Lord. But thank the Lord, if we wait, He will come!”

What has the Lord been speaking to you today?

  1. Be Alert and watch. I feel like I'm in a season of 'preparation' through a culmination of teaching encompassing the Seer prophetic realm, worship, and intercession.

    1. awesome! May the Lord continue to speak to you!

  2. Thank you for this simple and understandable explanation. It is the most easiest and best I've read so far. It helped clear up some confusion I've been having.
