Hearing Jesus*... Hearing the Holy Spirit...when do you hear from God?
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
It’s a process of dedication to press in for some and for others God just selectively speaks to them... He chooses to do that just as in the beginning when He spoke to Abraham ...
God chose to speak to the man. He still does that today...
Genesis 17:22 And he left off talking with him,
and God went up from Abraham.
We all have a conscience that will guide us to know what is good and bad right and wrong it works
till its seared with a hot iron and doesn’t work.
1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy;
having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
I believe that is a hint of God in us our conscience it aids us before we are saved.
Saved we begin to walk in our new Journey in the Lord Jesus* Christ our Savior.
Saved we are filled with the Holy Spirit of God....the Bible tells us the Kingdom of God is within us.
Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say,
Lo here! or, lo there!
for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
Saved...Our body is the temple no longer our
own but the temple of God
1 Corinthians 6:19 What?
know ye not that your body is the temple
of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
We are to show our serious interest
in our new walk in God and not take
it lightly God is in charge for we have
just been bought ..
Paid For by the pearl of great price
... He paid for us .... yet
He bids us to buy of Him.
Matthew 13:46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had,
and bought it.
Saved then...Jesus* is the new master of our lives ...
no longer is satan the master of our lives
but Jesus the master of our lives. Hallelujah
We are not our own but .... owned.
We are slaves to Jesus*
To a free carnal man that sounds bad.
[The Lord is teaching that as servants we don’t rush in dirty and sit at the table to eat. Instead we wash up clean up and prepare a meal for our master he will sit and eat and we will wait until He is finished eating and then we will sit and eat. we are servants of God... we do not rule the Master He rules us.]
But it’s a wonderful thing... to be purchased and owned by God...
He calls you His child, His sons are watched He raises them up
.... and no slave on earth could or
would ever be treated as the slaves of Jesus....
Hebrews 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement,
whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards,
and not sons.
He builds us a mansion and tells us we will walk on streets of gold...
Revelation 21:21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl:
and the street of the city was pure gold,
as it were transparent glass.
In my Father's house are many mansions:
if it were not so,
I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
and far more than that
He bought us out of the flames of death
that enslaved us...
we are free from death
and hell to serve the true
living God ... Jesus*
the Savior of the world
Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead;
and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen;
and have the keys of hell and of death.
Clearly Jesus paid the cost for us
It should have been us that took the wrath of sin.
but He who was Holy and knew no sin took our place... He died to save us from hell...
John 3 :16 For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God has spoken to me at various times of my life...
but not like today... Those back then were a sentence or a few words... Unlike like today
the Holy Spirit will talk more than I can write without my hand hurting....
God is always talking are we listening? Someone said that and I believe it.
John 10:4 When he has brought out all his own,
he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice
I go into prayer for a time and before you know it
the Holy Spirit begins to speak ...and that’s usually .
Im now at a place where I don’t need be in prayer
and the Holy Spirit will want to speak to me or utter
something through me Hallelujah!
Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way,
walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left.
Trust this spiritual place in time for me did not happen over night... which is not to say it cant happen
over night for you... with God all things are possible ..Amen.. And you are His business and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven ... Amen.
ARE YOU STRIVING TO HEAR FROM GOD?
My advice to you in your unique spiritual walk in the Lord is this...
fast .... Fast for as many days as you can... try to go for a minimum of three days
If you must have some food... then skip meals or don’t eat pleasant foods that
you love or don’t eat what you normally eat do ...give it up for God... there are many kinds of fasts...
You create one that works with your body...
one woman said she fasted every day... the first half of the day was Gods ...
she did not eat and she prayed during those hours... She also said when she was faithful to that formula she saw many miracles and blessings in the Lord Jesus*..
That proves to God you are adamant about
wanting to speak to Him and to hear from Him.
Matthew 4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights,
he was afterward an hungred.
Jesus fasted as He prayed to His Father in Heaven...
likewise we ought to fast before our Lord and Savior Jesus* Christ.
John 10:14 "I am the good shepherd;
I know my sheep and my sheep know me--
Next you need to focus on the Holy Spirit because He is the member of the Holy Trinity that is within you.
If you and I ignore Him ... I believe strongly we do not grow as we ought to in the Lord Jesus nor are we able to obtain the greater gifts because its Him the Holy Spirit that is the keeper of them and the word tells us to covet earnestly those gifts of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
1Now concerning spiritual gifts,
brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2Ye know that ye were Gentiles,
carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3Wherefore I give you to understand,
that no man speaking by the Spirit of God
calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus
is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5And there are differences of administrations,
but the same Lord.
6And there are diversities of operations,
but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7But the manifestation of the Spirit is given
to every man to profit withal.
8For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;
to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9To another faith by the same Spirit;
to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy;
to another discerning of spirits;
to another divers kinds of tongues;
to another the interpretation of tongues:
11But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit,
dividing to every man severally as he will.
12For as the body is one, and hath many members,
and all the members of that one body,
being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13For by one Spirit are we all baptized into
one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free;
and have been
all made to drink into one Spirit.
14For the body is not one member, but many.
15If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body;
is it therefore not of the body?
16And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body;
is it therefore not of the body?
17If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing,
where were the smelling?
18But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee:
nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow
more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25That there should be no schism in the body;
but that the members should have the same care
one for another.
26And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured,
all the members rejoice with it.
27Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
28And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers,
after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
29Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
Seems we are given a point in the right direction as to seek and find ...
but who is picking up on the sign or the hint... hint?
That member of the God head is just as vital as the Heavenly Father and the only begotten Son Jesus Christ the Savior of the world.
Enough said on His being vital to us for now...
Strive to speak to the Holy Spirit in prayer [in Jesus name ... so you do not feel you are cheating Jesus out of homage].... Introduce yourself to the Holy Spirit of God that dwells within you... speak to Him tell Him you want to grow in your walk of faith in the Lord Jesus
Ask Him to aid you in every way He can and will in Jesus name to do so... and most of all at this time you are hungering to hear from Him ....
tell Him you are longing to communicate with Him a that you know the will of God in your life and how to better serve the Lord Jesus*
Keep after Him in prayer be earnest
and you will hear
from Him.... Praise to Jesus*
Praise to the Father Son
and Holy Spirit ... Hallelujah!
He may rush over you strong
with power and with visions and speaking
in tongues.... you may get much right away
or you may receive insteps of smaller amounts
Hosea 11:10 They will follow the LORD; he will roar like a lion.
When he roars, his children will come trembling from the west.
Who knows we are all different...
our relationship with God
is unique to each of us.
God loves you very much
and longs to talk to you... but
He is your Heavenly Father
and will raise you up in Him
He demands respect
.... and He has a way of getting it.
I know small children are getting dreams visions and words from the Holy Spirit... some
of the things that the young children are saying are so rich in the Holy Spirit moving through them to bring Glory and Honor and Praise* to Jesus Christ the Savior of the World... Hallelujah!!!
Psalm 25:4 Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths
tells us of he out pouring of spirit of Joel...
And it shall come to pass afterward,
that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh;
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams,
your young men shall see visions:
Surely we are in a time of the flow
a time of much its there we just need to ask...
in good faith the grain of a mustard seed and we will press in ...
Matthew 17:20 And Jesus
said unto them,
Because of your unbelief:
for verily I say unto you,
If ye have faith as a grain
of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
One more thing is to stay in prayer
in those days to show your
sincerity don’t pray
say your spill then walk away..
Wait.... on God to speak...
Wait .... be quiet let Him speak
and you will hear Him..
Now you need to test the spirits
at this point because.... every spirit and their
friend wants to jump in the communication
and speak their mind.. I have fallen for the wrong
spirits many times. We can be mislead as we search to hear... So God tells us to test... spirits.
This is the test of all tests... ask the Spirit that is speaking to you if Jesus Christ the only begotten
Son of the true living God has come to earth in the flesh yet? the Spirit of antichrist will not be
able to say yes... and you will know it’s
not the spirit of God.
1 John 4 1 Beloved, believe not every spirit,
but try the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God:
Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ
is come in the flesh is of God:
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ
is come in the flesh is not of God:
and this is that spirit of antichrist,
whereof ye have heard that it should come;
and even now already is it in the world.
It takes time
don't knock yourself as you grow in grace
also know the Holy Spirit will never
lead you into sin ...but away from sin.
and the Holy Spirit always strives to bring
Honor to Jesus Christ and teaches the word of God.
Also the time is important ... it means a lot... if you can ... and I realize not all can do this ..
But if you can pray during the hours of 3 AM to 6 AM that’s the fourth watch....
when Jesus walked on the water....
Matthew 14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them,
walking on the sea.
and for some reason the demonic forces are not as strong during that time....
and it’s a far better time to talk to the Lord
I have had times when the Lord wakes me in that time to speak to me.
I have felt His presence strongly and was privy to be shown heavenly things,
spiritual things of God..
some unique to me and some for the Bride of Christ...
God is amazing your relationship is
fabulous as you grow in Jesus...
He will take you places you have never been...
and open doors that have been closed...
You are privy to go to the Kingdom of Heaven now
... and the Lord will take you there...
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly
unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help in time of need.
...you can and are to do that now
... it’s a spiritual place in the Kingdom of Heaven...
Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
... it’s a spiritual place the spirit of God searches the deeper things of God
Eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared
for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:
for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
We are raised with Jesus in Spirit ...
Colossians 2:12 having been
buried with him in baptism and raised
with him through your faith in the
power of God, who raised him
from the dead.
And hath raised us up together,
and made us sit together
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
AND MADE US SIT TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS
SO WE DON’T HAVE TO DIE TO FIND THAT PLACES... WE ARE TO GROW TO FIND
THE DEEPER THINGS OF GOD... THE SPIRIT SEARCHES THEM.
Jesus* will take you places you have never been
show you things you have never seen
open doors that have been closed
and that is all through the Holy Spirit
...that is the deeper things of God the word speaks of ...
Your walk in the Lord is unique to you...
some things the Lord shows you are for you
and possibly yours and some are for the Bride
and whosoever... that the Body of Christ be edified.
One Day at a time sweet Jesus.
My goal is to encourage you in your spiritual growth...
You who are growing and pressing in and don’t know what this place is that you are in... I recommend you purchase Holly Baillie Cds on growing in the Holy Spirit... she has a way of putting into words the things you are going through that you better understand what it is and aids you to grow through in Jesus* name... I found her link ... I don’t get a kick back on pushing or suggesting her thoughts... this is all about you... God wants you to grow to be all you can be in Him... http://www.citywiderevival.com/products.html
Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus
you who once were far away have been
brought near through the blood of Christ.
AND THIS IS A POWER OF PRAYER AND VERY DEEP SPIRITUAL PLACE....
Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence,
and the violent take it by force.
That’s deep for a babe on milk.. but for
the spiritual man its truth.
Come boldly to the throne of grace.
Take the Kingdom of Heaven by force.
you are more than you know your conquerors in
Jesus name... and much is given unto you
... You are your own limit.
The word is alive...
Before the cross men spoke as the Holy Spirit
came upon them since the days of Pentecost
The Saved have the Holy Spirit within them at all times so we on this side of the cross can
expect to hear from God Daily to constantly depending on our walk in the Lord.
Each man will reap what He puts into his relationship in the Lord. Sow little reap little sow much reap much...
We are told to study to show ourselves approved .... and to know sound doctrine...
We are also to seek after the things of God.... the treasures of God are spiritual... not tangible
physical.... and those things are found via the Holy Spirit.. Blessed are we on this side of the
Cross... Blessed are we that are Saved through the Lamb of God... Through the shed blood of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.... we the saved are a Holy Temple housing the best friend any man
could have... surely in Jesus Christ we are never alone .... Hallelujah.
Scholars may lack in spirit what they have obtained in knowledge of the word... this can toss a short
in understanding the depths of God into the spiritual arena of individuals that are learning through
the understanding and the teachings of these scholars ... yet if the scholar is not tapped into the depths
of the Holy Spirit within him via soul salvation ... then he is drawing a spiritual blank ...
and not only that ...but he may become a stumbling block to others and serve to stand to ridicule those that have found more of what God is offering His children.
Let me speak for those growing in the Holy Spirit... be careful .... as you grow and are striving to discern your new growth spurts in the Holy Spirit .... don’t let anyone tell you its wrong or that’s wrong... you test the spirits and if your truly saved walking in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..,. just follow the Lord ... your walk is unique in Jesus Christ and always recall their was only one David .... a boy amongst men that stood for God. You just may be that boy standing out before a giant while mighty men cower behind a rock. Its your walk... live it in Christ that He be glorified.
In the Body of Jesus Christ is a mixed
level of believers from milk to meat and the spiritual ...
not all of the Bride seeks the greater gifts of the Holy Spirit....
Certainly God Himself distributes gifts upon soul salvation and some are handed much Blessed are they ... and some of us have to pray and fast and ask and keep at it showing we are sincere an hunger for the greater gifts of God...
What ever you position in the body of Jesus Christ...
God is always talking its up to us to press in for more of the Holy Spirit and up to us to sit at His feet and listen.
In time we learn to sit at His feet and listen
... no mater what our physical body is
so we can be working and hearing
from the Lord....that’s what its like
to grow in the Holy Spirit... Amen.
It’s a process of less of us and more of Him
... less of our will and more of His will
prayer is a the greatest tool we have its our telephone,
our weapon against the enemy,
its our strength our comfort our blessed assurance,
Another very fast way to
grow in the Lord is to pray for others more than for ourselves
.... when we pray for others
that’s the work of Jesus..
Consider when He walked the earth ...
He was about His Fathers business
healing people and teaching...
We can pray for others...
and share the word with one another
that we grow in Jesus ... Amen.
So we are to be selfless its all about
Jesus and the works that
He did... We are to be like Him.
He gave all for us...now we give all for Him...
I pray in Jesus* name for those of you
that are hungering and striving to hear
from God and believe you have not heard
from Him that you will come to hear Him...Amen...
and for those of you that are hearing from the Holy Spirit and don’t know it... check again and listen is someone speaking seemingly from within you .... You may mix it up with your conscience...
you will come to know the still small voice of the Lord speaking to you via the Holy Spirit...
and grow greater into your relationship with Him once you discover His voice.
At this point I do not want to expound upon audible or internal voice or hearing from God the Father, Jesus* the Son and the Holy Spirit... that’s too much to talk of and write of for now... For now what is important is what is written here for to help you today... enough said ...and you yourself will grow from there ...to discover the more of our awesome wonderful Holy, Holy, Holy three in one true living God.... Hallelujah.!!!
Don’t forget the importance of testing the spirits lest you be led astray....
I pray this has been a help to those of you
that hunger to hear from God...
In Jesus* name be blessed and again
I pray you hear what you have been missing ...
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Take everything to God in Prayer nothing is to small or to great for God..
them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Saved ...You have the authority in Jesus name not in your name but in Jesus name to do
incredible things in the spirit world
.... I pray you tune in.
ITS SPIRITUAL WARFARE... ARE YOU FIGHTING for RIGHTEOUSNESS IN JESUS* NAME SAKE?
The Battle is now.
Jesus* Blessings to you
