The Elementary Things of God 2b
Knowing His Voice
God is bring un-nerving calamity that will drive people back into His Church. When people see the wrath of God and his heavy hand coming down upon the nations, people will turn and run back to the House of God. The one thing that we want is new people added to His Kingdom.
We are only in this life for a short period of time. This is not heaven nor will it ever be. This short time we have is just a blink in eternity. We need to make the best of it now. We cannot look for the comfort levels. We need to look at ourselves and judge whether we are in His Will or not.
It is only by association that the anointing comes. If you do not hang around it, you will not get it.
In my own ministry, there is a need to teach to the same group of people over and over. The hit and miss approach of preaching on hearing God is not going to work. It is very difficult to teach people how to hear the voice of God; unless you have the time to walk them through a number of life experiences the connection will not be made. A certain measure of God’s anointing helps to open the heavens in order to hear His voice. One way of receiving it is through the association with others who are anointed to hear Him. If you do not hang around it, you will not get it. If it passes through, you may get a touch of it. It may rub off on you but you will need to receive a larger measure of His anointing in order to make a lasting connection.
Paul said; “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). You may ask how do you do that? First of all, prayer is not a one-way source of communication. Prayer is a special way of communicating with our heavenly Father. So, to pray without ceasing would be more of an open line to His throne, isn’t that what you want? There are many voices that come into our hearing throughout each day. What Apostle Paul is saying is that you need to have your spiritual antenna up at all times and keep it locked in directly to His voice and only His voice.
Many times, we find God has moved in a new direction and are ability to find Him becomes challenging. It is then you need to start moving into His favorite game, “Hide-n-Seek”. This is when you find yourself in search mode going up and down the His spiritual hallway looking for the door you’re to go through. Keep knocking on each door until you hear Him, then reset your dial and adjust your antenna right their until He moves again.
- “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:8).
When you are in the ‘hallway’ you should not make major decisions. You must wait until you are in the room comfortable, secure and confident you are with Him. If you make changes in the midst of God’s wave of changes you will mess up. If we let God lead each and every one of us then He will help us find out who we are in Him; no matter how changing life maybe in the process. God has a plan and He getting you ready for what is about to take place.
- “God said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice (1 Kings 19:11-13).
A lot of people are proclaiming that everything is great and good but when it all falls apart those people who rested on those words are going to be devastated. There are people who will prepare for what’s coming. It is important for us to stay out of debt and try to be as liquid, as possible.
To be a poor man is a bad thing; however, it is fare worse to without cash and deep in debt. You will be worse off than person who didn’t have anything. It is easier to find bread for today than have to find bread for today, yesterday and the day before. Paying for your past pleasures is not what I call fun and exciting.
For years we have heard that we need to stay out of debt. Yet, people wonder why. They thought everything was getting better. We have got to know what God wants us to do in all financial arenas in order to have foresight on what we need and don’t need. We need 20/20 foresight. The only way to get that is to be on the same channel as our Lord and work under His personal guidance.
When we know what God wants us to do and we do that then we will know we will be okay.
The anointing is coming and it will tell certain people what to buy and/or what to sell, when to sell and where to buy. God will begin to prosper those who hear Him. He will take us through a time that is very challenging; however, it can become very exciting, in a good way if you are hearing His loving voice, as He guides you through this world’s chaotic maze.
It can be a little like the game of ‘Dodge-Ball’. When you know what God wants you to do, then you know you’ll be all right. You will be able to dodge every fiery dart the enemy throws at you. God’s word will always test you to see if you will trust Him. Once you have perfected the act of knowing in your ‘knower’ that you have truly heard Him then all you have left to do is Pray, Hear and Obey and it will all be okay.
