Learning to listen to the voice of the Lord

 00 t150  
(John 10:27 KJV) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
.
(Isa 30:21 KJV) 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.
.
Sadly too many MESSIANIC JEWS, Judaizers, Dispensationalists   too are so busy working and also so worrying about how to change the others, but   they themselves firstly ARE NOW NOT  even walking in the right path.
.
THOSE CLEARLY CARNAL, DEMONIC, PERVERTED MESSIANIC JEWS FALSELY INSIST THAT YOU RELY ON THEIR HEBREW UNDERSTANDING,  INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE ARE IN GROSS ERROR CAUSE FIRSTLY THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO WROTE THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT,NOW  WROTE THE NEW COVENANT IN GREEK EVEN AND NOT HEBREW.. AND HE IS THE ONE WHO HAS TO EX[LAIN THE BIBLE TO YOU AND NOT THE CARNAL  MINDED JEWS..
.
Now what laws did all of the people follow now before Moses, or what laws of God were applicable to all before Moses to all? Those God spoke to them personally, directly. They thus followed or disobeyed the laws of the Holy Spirit. Next the laws of Moses were still only applicable to all Jews, and were not given to any of  the gentiles.. 
.
The people who also tell us to use only the Bible they often still lie further to us.. they ask us also to use men’s commentaries, instead of the Holy spirit to next interpret the Bible.
.
(Eph 4:18 KJV) Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
.
Jesus is God’s perfect revelation. The Bible is the record of God’s revelation. To the experience, true Christian believer It is undeniably clearly that the Holy Sprit is the persons, individual that will lead and guide us into all truth, even explaining the Bible to us now as well.  Imagine now instead that you too even can actually hear God’s voices, THAT OF JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT AS WELL NOW and their  specific instructions to you instead of hearing your own voice, the Jewish lusts of the flesh,  or the Devil’s voice.
.
HOW EASY IS IT TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE.. THAT  MORE I DESIRE TO HEAR HIM THE EASIER  IT IS THAT SO DO.. AS GOD SAID IF YOU SEEK ME WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART YOU WILL FIND ME.
.
Now we all still do have to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, to hear his will, guidance, commandments for us..
 .
Personal Humbleness is one of the basic prerequisite to allow God to personally speak to us. I know that many persons now tend to limit, cripple how God can speak to them, as only being through the Mind, through the Bible, only through others, or through circumstances.. well I also know that the devil can speak to you and me that way now too.. or he devil can send you a supposedly wise person telling you what you should do , what to do. and often rather making it a lot worse.
.
There is a huge pitfall in Messianic Jews with their false  thinking the Hebrew  Bible is solely the Word of God, and neglecting  most of the New Testament,, There is a huge pitfall in  thinking the Bible is the Word of God alone, and thinking that all the commands in the Bible referencing the Word of God, refer solely  to the Bible; when these references really mean going to God directly and listening to the Word of God  personally still speaking to you.
.

Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Mat 4:4

.

There is no valid, real personal spiritual life without hearing His words coming to you directly from the mouth of God. I is still also surprising   how many professing Christian people do not still hear God personally speaking to them. It is really tragic that most so called Christians don’t hear the voice of God and are thus personally are not really led by him at all. All because they still definitely don’t wait upon the Lord including many Pentecostals. Some people seem amazed that God can, and will now speak to his children, given the proper conditions being met, but me I am often amazed how is it that so many people cannot hear God, as to what un-confessed, un-repented of sins are obstructing their relationship with him now.. The other denominations do wrongfully limit to God speaking to us only in his Words the Bible or through only the preacher.

.

If you personally still don’t also listen to the Voice of God, you will never really  grow; you will never know from what to repent; you will never receive his changing, purifying grace; you will not find God or his will and plan for you; and you will not have any final reward in the Kingdom of God or Christ. You will never make it to Heaven but still only to Hell.
.
Understand this, the  whole Bible even still is not the full  Word of God,also now many of the scriptures that refer to the Word of God are not referring to the Bible, but rather do refer you still to the voice of God or the Lord – his direct words from Him, from Him alone, the words directly from the living spirit Word – otherwise you now are are looking to the wrong source of growth – a book, instead of God’s Holy spirit, the God who desires to speak and teach you outside of the Bible. The Holy Spirit will teach you all things as per John 14:26. He desires to teach you individual, personal things about yourself, and how he wants you to live, how he wants you to improve, what he wants you to deny – as well as encourage you, tell you of his love for you, and open up the scriptures to you, including the mysteries.
.
 If you do still limit yourself to reading the Bible, you will only get crumbs beneath the table. Yes You can memorize the entire Bible, quoting chapter and verse, and it will gain you next still  nothing even with God. It is easy to read the Bible. It often feels good to read the Bible, as long as you discount all the personal  requirements such as holiness, perfection, and purity while ignoring the disqualifications of anger, lust, immorality, impurity, greed, etc. Still you can be changed and purified to enter the Kingdom of Heaven as a son of God forever – by listening to God’s voice and obeying it, doing it his way and not your own still too.
.
And this is why placing the Bible as the sole emphasis in worship is not only  inadequate (the crumbs under the table), but potentially heretical (the  Pharisees pride in biblical knowledge).
.
I also learned that I personally can Hear the Voice of God in more ways than one.. Jesus now in reality is not a thought or an ideology, He is a Person. People have relationships, and relationships presupposes mutual communication. The Holy Spirit can and will speak to us directly if we let him to speak to us or let others next to speak to us, to guide us but he does want us to mature, to seek Him, to seek His face for our guidance. We still cannot make our on views, experience now still as God’s rule for everyone else. But many people do. Some people wrongfully do claim that God today can only speak to each one of us personally, to all of us through his written Word the Bible, cause that is all they have experienced maybe? but in fact I am very sure that these very same people God often cannot still even personally reach them firstly even by his Word… you know that is why so many people read the Bible and have different interpretations, doctrines, denominations even cause it is really not God who is talking to them through it… mere man is or self or the devil.. And yet many Bible scholars, pastors who know the Bible are blind to God’s truths and yet they know the Word on the outside.. their real inadequacy is that they really still do not, did not know God on a deep personal level, they have not communicated with Him and thus they are still in the wilderness themselves still. It is one thing to know the Word, but it is another thing to know the Author himself. How well do you know the author, not just his writings?
 .
Some people sadly are using still their corrupted, unregenerated, human spirit to try to understand God and his truths and they will fail at it still too.
 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: That iniquity can still be operating in the the kingdom of self..(Psa 66:18 KJV)
.
 If any will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23
(Psa 37:23 KJV)  The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
.
Jer 11:3 Say to them, Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: Cursed is the man who does not heed the words of this covenant {or} solemn pledge 4 Which I commanded your fathers at the time that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Listen to My voice and do according to all that I command you. So will you be My people, and I will be your God, 5 That I may perform the oath which I swore to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then I answered, Amen (so be it), O Lord.
.
Jer 11:6 And the Lord said to me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: Hear the words of this covenant {or} solemn pledge and do them. 7 For I earnestly protested to {and} warned your fathers at the time that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even to this day, protesting to {and} warning them persistently, saying, Obey My voice. 8 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear [to Me], but everyone walked in the stubbornness of his own evil heart.
.
Jer 12:16 And if these [neighbor nations] will diligently learn the ways of My people, to swear by My name, saying, As the Lord lives–even as they taught My people to swear by Baal–then will they be built up in the midst of My people. 17 But if any nation will not hear and obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, says the Lord. 
 
.
“There was a day when I died;
died to self, my opinions, preferences, tastes and will;
died to the world, its approval or censure;
died to the approval or blame even of my brethren or friends;
and since then I have studied only
to show myself approved unto God.”
(George Mueller)
.
  
When you talk about what the scripture DO say you honestly should mean how you interpret what the scripture says.. cause too many of us read different things out of the same scriptures as we all do know firstly..
 
.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God not mere men. 
.
And thus when I see shallow arguments  of anyone still limiting today as to what God can do, even through us,  it makes me rightfully also think how shallow their Christian faith now really is.. they are still babies in the Lord and need someone to teach them the whole truth, the whole , full gospel too, for my God can do anything, Jesus is the same , yesterday, today and forever.  
  .
There are many different voices available to us today to listen to still, even the voice of the enemy, the devil and his followers.. or  own voices and finally God’s voice. Learning how to listen to and listen daily, continually to God’s voice is not optional too. Now God still speak to us through his word, the Bible, but God also still speak to us by His Holy Spirit as well. (John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
.
 You cannot falsely limit God to speak solely by the word of God the Bible.. but always you can confirm all God says to you by the Bible..
  .
“HOW TO ASCERTAIN THE WILL OF GOD
  • 1. I seek at the beginning to get my heart into such a state that it has no will of its own in regard to a given matter. Nine-tenths of the trouble with people generally is just here. Nine-tenths of the difficulties are overcome when our hearts are ready to do the LORD’s will, whatever it may be. When one is truly in this state, it is usually but a little way to the knowledge of what His will is.
  • 2. Having done this, I do not leave the result to feeling or simple impression. If so, I make myself liable to great delusions.
  • 3. I seek the Will of the Spirit of God through, or in connection with, the Word of God. The Spirit and the Word must be combined. If I look to the Spirit alone without the Word, I lay myself open to great delusions also. If the Holy Ghost guides us at all, He will do it according to the Scriptures and never contrary to them.”
George Mueller 1805-1898  –from the classic biography of George Mueller, “George Müller of Bristol,”New Window by A. T. PiersonNew Window, Appendix N: “The Wise Sayings of George MuellerNew Window

(Jer 6:16 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.  But they said, We will not walk therein.

  3. The resurrection of Jesus Christ was not only witnessed by the Apostles, it was also written done by one of them, apostle Luke too, the account we can all read today in the Bible but God on top of that now has given his holy spirit as a witness of this reality to all those who truly believe him too

    Acts 1:1 IN THE former account [which I prepared], O Theophilus, I made [a continuous report] dealing with all the things which Jesus began to do and to teach
    Acts 1:3 To them also He showed Himself alive after His passion (His suffering in the garden and on the cross) by [a series of] many convincing demonstrations [unquestionable evidences and infallible proofs], appearing to them during forty days and talking [to them] about the things of the kingdom of God.
    Acts 1:4 And while being in their company {and} eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised, Of which [He said] you have heard Me speak.
    Acts 1:5 For John baptized with water, but not many days from now you shall be baptized with (placed in, introduced into) the Holy Spirit.
    Acts 1:6 So when they were assembled, they asked Him, Lord, is this the time when You will reestablish the kingdom {and} restore it to Israel?
    Acts 1:7 He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with {and} know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice {and} authority {and} personal power.
    Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

    Acts 2:3 And there appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were separated {and} distributed and which settled on each one of them.

    Acts 2:16 But this is [the beginning of] what was spoken through the prophet Joel:
    Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [divinely suggested] dreams.
    Acts 2:18 Yes, and on My menservants also and on My maidservants in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God’s kingdom].

    Acts 2:21 And it shall be that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord–Christ] shall be saved.

    Acts 2:38 And Peter answered them, Repent (change your views and purpose to accept the will of God in your inner selves instead of rejecting it) and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of {and} release from your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    Acts 2:39 For the promise [of the Holy Spirit] is to {and} for you and your children, and to {and} for all that are far away, [even] to {and} for as many as the Lord our God invites {and} bids to come to Himself.
