One of the most controversial subjects in the churches is the claim some make that they can hear God speaking to them. Some Christians rely on hearing God’s voice while many others do not believe it is possible to hear God’s voice.
Exodus 33:11 And the Lord spoke unto Moses face to face, as a man would speak unto his friend.
God spoke to Moses with an audible voice, He had to because Moses was spiritually dead. Spiritually dead people are separated spiritually from God’s Spirit, they couldn’t recognize His voice because they don’t know His will. God communicated with His prophets through visions and dreams. The kings, the leaders and the people relied on the prophets to hear from God for their lives.
Hebrews 1:1-2 In times past God spoke to the fathers by the prophets. Now in these last days He spoke to us by His Son.
Jesus spoke only what He heard His Father say. His words would lead men to eternal life but only after He returned to Heaven. The people were so spiritually dead they did not understand the Word of God and God will not alter it for anyone. God will not change for anyone, we must change in order to conform to Him and His ways. God ordained men to record everything He said whether they understood it or not. They couldn’t fully comprehend it at the time but a new generation of believers was coming and they would discern the Word of God.
John 16:13 When the Spirit of truth is come He will guide you into all truth, whatever He will hear, that will He speak to whosoever.
Whosoever will invite the Holy Spirit into their lives and listen to Him, they will have an intimate relationship with the Father God. Now you can clearly see why the devil does his best to keep the Holy Spirit out of the churches. The devil constantly discredits the Holy Spirit and His present day ministry. The men who wrote the New Testament did not understand their writings until the Holy Ghost came and revealed God’s will to them. The Apostle Paul was not a disciple of Christ like the twelve were, Jesus revealed to him what the disciples did not understand. How important is it for man to communicate with their Savior?
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed (cut off) for a lack of knowledge (a clear perception of what exists).
Isaiah 5:13 My people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge.
Men who do not hear God for themselves live in a world of ignorance, the devil can bend them into whatever shape he chooses. Step back and take an overview of the world, people are aligned with the vision of the devil. The ignorant fools are protecting the very thing that is killing them. They stand by the wayside ridiculing those who claim to hear the voice and will of their Savior. One day they will hear the voice of God but by then it will be too late. The Father will ask one question: What did you do with My Son? Not one of them will have a valid excuse, either you accept Him as your Savior or you reject Him.
