Hearing God's Voice
After I resigned from my post in the banking industry, I began to sit under a number of Bible teachers. Over a period of two years I was filled with all kinds of different beliefs and doctrines. I found myself confused and in need of truth. I recall watching two television ministers teaching on the same Bible verse. One was saying one thing and the other was teaching just the opposite. Frustrated and confused, I turned the television off and began to pray asking which one of these men I could believe. Both had gained my respect and I had received many great sermons from them, but I did not want to be deceived. After I prayed, the Holy Spirit directed me to these verses of scripture.
But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. I John 2:27
It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father come to Me (Jesus). John 6:45
From that point on, I began to listen for the voice of God to learn from Him as He spoke into my spirit and from the Holy Scriptures. This was the beginning of my experience of being reprogrammed to receive prosperity along the way. I had taken in a lot of garbage and it was time to begin disposing of some of the teachings I had grafted into my beliefs. Since that time, I have found that many of the things that we enjoy being taught are not from God. The Bible can be interpreted many different ways, but there is only one Author and He has only one interpretation: the truth. (Ref. 11 Timothy 4:3,4) I have found this principle to work 100% of the time. If I practice what I have heard taught and it does NOT work in my life, then it is not truth. This same principle will also work for you when you are wanting to know the truth. If you are taught to speak, pray, walk, worship or petition God a certain way to receive His promises and it does NOT work for you, then it is not truth. The Bible does not encompass lies. Only those who improperly interpret its' meanings are in error. These two things I have found to be true. 1) Whatever the Holy Spirit reveals is truth. 2) Whatever He tells me to do will be the solution to my problem. Whatever He tells me to do or say and I obey is the only way I can please Him. For it is impossible to please Him without faith and faith comes by hearing, and hearing by His (rhema) word.
But without FAITH it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
What you believe will make the difference in what you possess. Doctrine is a very important ingredient for obtaining the maximum benefits from this life. You can live eternity with Jesus believing He was born of the virgin Mary, died on the cross at Calvary for our sins, and was raised from the dead on the third day. Through the saving and redeeming blood of the Lamb of God, we do have eternal life in His kingdom, but what about here? The various and assorted doctrines that exist today all have a measure of truth. With that portion of truth their followers will prosper. However, no one denomination has all of the truth incorporated in their teachings. Now we know that truth is the Holy Spirit and without Him there is no truth. The measure of truth you have abiding in you will determine the quantity of blessings manifested in your life.
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. John 16:13
You can have all of the money in the world, but still not be prosperous. Biblical prosperity is defined as- help along the journey. Vine defines prosper as- to help one's way. In what way do you need help? We cannot limit prosperity to monetary blessings only. You may have need of peace in your life, yet you have all of your financial needs met. Who can lead you into that perfect peace? The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. How will He lead you into this peace that surpasses all understanding? (Ref. Phillipians 4:7) He leads by the Holy Spirit who guides and directs those that are willing to follow. Obeying His word is to come into agreement with Him and do what is asked of you. Maybe He is commanding you to forgive a certain person who has hurt you. Your breakthrough can only come by obeying the Word of God.
Jesus was misunderstood when He preached the sermon "Eat of My flesh and drink of My blood." (Ref. John 6:53) Without the Holy Spirit giving us understanding of what Jesus was saying, we might begin practicing cannibalism. (Ref. Matthew 13:13) Here is understanding. If we feed upon God's Word and drink of His Spirit, we will become more like His Son. Jesus was perfect in the eyes of our heavenly Father. He did everything the Father asked of Him to do, even die for the sins of the world. (Ref. John 3:16) If we do all that the Spirit ask of us, then we too will walk in the light of His perfection.
You are what you eat. If you feed on the lies of the world, you will find yourself lying with the best of them. Allow the Holy Spirit to sift out the words of truth that also come from those who speak in the name of Jesus, and He will keep you from being deceived. (Ref. II Corinthians 11:4) No one wants to be hoodwinked into some doctrine that will cause him to stumble and fall into rebellion or worse. Those who are led by the Holy Spirit are the sons and daughters of God, the elect of God. (Ref. Romans 8:14)
