Archive for the ‘Hearing God’s Voice & The Prophetic’ Category

It is possible for us to hear God easily and have friendship and conversations with God.

It was 1st November 2017, almost 3pm, I was waiting on the Lord to hear from Him, I heard Him easily other days and just start writing them down as I opened my hearing God’s voice journal book. But that moment I want to hear something more, as I remember someone’s preaching that he would go to the secret place and nearby trees and would wait even till midnight to hear from God, which I heard him from internet, and must be YouTube. Actually, I believe he is much better than me in hearing God, because I have seen him must be on YouTube that he heard words of knowledge easily in public and people would be healed, and more. He probably heard easily from God, though he was known as an Apostle and probably not a Prophet, he don’t seemed to be a Prophet as long as I have heard Him. Anyway, he must probably heard very well.

And however, it is also important to know that prophesying, and getting words of knowledge are also different from hearing God’s voice, and even though wisdom greatly carried favour as we find in proverb, and is also the result of relationship with God, it is still different from hearing God’s voice, friendship with God, and conversations with God. Even though all these could be part of hearing God’s voice, it is also possible to have a great and deep word of knowledge in public but have a not so good personal hearing God’s voice, friendship with God and conversations with God.

Whatsoever, as I have heard him preaching in one of his video, he would spend till the middle of the night to hear from God, and that’s true and I believe I have experienced those kind of things in my journey with God several times to hear from God.

And on this day 1st Nov 2017, as I wait on the Lord in the afternoon to hear from God, I remember my experiences as well as his preaching that he would even spend till midnight to hear from God, so unlike other days I tried to wait on God for a long time and hear something unusual as I have experienced and heard him preach, I must have shut up even what God spoke to me in that moment in order to hear from God more clearly and to just make more sure it’s God who spoke to me in all other days.

And it’s the Devil’s job to make us doubt that it’s not God who spoke to us when God speak to us, he is a liar, and that’s his job.

But then as I tried to wait on God for a longer moment and hear His voice more clearly I felt the Lord spoke to me clearly, “You do not need to wait that long to hear from me, you just can open up your book and start writing”, so as I heard I did it and easily start to wrote all the things God spoke to me at that moment.

And here’s the point, it is possible that we do not need to wait on God for a long time for God to speak to us, we can just start hearing or start writing them down as He speak to us in our heart and our thoughts, though it is important to recheck them with an open heart. But it is also important to know that it is possible that we can easily hear from God.

God must have probably desire to have a closer relationship with people of pure heart that are after Him, because Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they will see God”. The ability to hear God and have conversations with Him itself is a blessings (Matt 5:8).

The teaching’s here is a very easy way to start hearing from God, even if you have problem sometimes hearing God, this is very good way to start activating to hear Him speak.

It was around 2007 and 2008, I was appointed to preach in one church on Sunday afternoon in the Salvation Army, it was not our church Aizawl Bazar Corp, it was another church, same city in Aizawl, India, and it was a youth service, I taught on “Hearing God’s Voice”, and then let them do the practical after teaching, I let them go to different corners of the church and told them to listen to His still small voice, after sometimes they all came back, and I asked them if they hear from God, non of them heard anything, I know it was not easy at once and must have probably been the first for most of them, it take some practice.

However it was around the same year around 2007 and 2008, I’ve got a chance to preach in a crusade, they might be around 100 to 200 children, so I used this method of Hearing God’s voice, telling them to write down how they felt God speak to them, everyone were writing down, it was all quite, after sometimes I asked them “Do you enjoy?”, many of them were shouting “Yes”, you can feel the presence of God, and I believe many of them heard God’s voice at that time from the first practical.

Having been in several Discipleship Training Schools, and has trained a numbers of youths, I also came to find that it take time and it take practice to hear God’s still small voice. However, here’s the very simple and easy way you can do every time you got a problem Hearing Him, or you can start with, it helped me many times to be more sensitive to Him. Jesus taught us to receive the Kingdom of Heaven like a little child, therefore here’s a very simple and easy way even children enjoyed in their first practical time.

Here’s the simple way to start Hearing God:

1. Change the proclamation words into Hearing God’s voice and start Hearing from God:

Example: –
Proclamation words – “I am God’s son, He loves me so much, God knew me before I was even born….”
Hearing God’s Voice – “You are my son, I love you so much, I knew you before you were even born….”

This is one of the most simple way to start learning How to Hear God’s Voice for yourself. Do not despise them. Remember that sometimes God might just let you soak in His Love again and again as you hear His Voice.

2. You can start writing “A letter from God”, a letter from God to yourself:

As you continue to write, you will get more and more inspired, God will speak to you.

Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers has been known much in the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God, what has been on the process around the world for years are the Prophets and the Apostles, many places around the world have known the existence of Apostles and Prophets, and many who knows the existence of Apostles and Prophets are still on the process of knowing the purpose and importance of the Apostles and Prophets in the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God, and many other places around the world has not even know the existence of Apostles and Prophets, therefore they are still a process around the world.

Some years back we have explained about the 5 fold Ministries in the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God, once more we will give a little hind about them, the 5 fingers are how many people around the world usually explained the 5 fold ministries in general, so we also will use them as an example to explain them in general.

Apostles: Apostles have Governmental anointing, and Apostles Advance the Kingdom of God, they are like General Overseers of the task and project, there is no Apostolic without the Advancement of the Kingdom, they download the overall plans of God, they are like the thumb in the finger that can keep in touch with all the other 4 fingers, they can move into any needed areas in the 5 fold Ministries, and their main motivation is to expand and to Advance the Kingdom of God. Even in communist countries and countries that are not open, like China and many other countries the Kingdom of God are still Advancing under great persecutions, at the same time many people also martyred for Advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

Prophets: (Prophets guide) Prophets are like the forefingers, that point us toward God, relationship with God, Hearing God’s voice, the presence of God, and they show us the invisible Kingdom of God. Where there are no Prophets, people are Spiritually blind and deaf, Prophets carry more grace where people can see and hear from God and that they are able to see the invisible Kingdom of God.

Evangelist: (Evangelists gather lost souls) Evangelists are like the middle fingers, that goes out to the longest to the lost souls. Evangelist have more grace that lost souls may be saved.

Pastors: (Pastors guard our emotional health) Pastors are like the ring finger, wedding, marriage, children, family, emotional healing, caring, counselling, Shepherding.

Teachers: (Teachers ground) Teachers are like the little finger that can dig into details the truths of God’s words, and communicate in an understandable ways.

5 fingers5fold

We can never overemphasize the importance of reaching out to the lost souls and lost souls being save.

We can never overemphasize the importance of children and family, and the emotional health of children.

We can never overemphasize the importance of Relationship with God and Hearing God’s Voice.

Therefore it is important to Advance the Kingdom of God.

We can also see how all the 5 fold ministries are so important in the body of Christ and the Kingdom of God.

As a believers of Jesus Christ – Everyone are to have the heart for the lost and the harvest, everyone are to have concern for children, value our marriages as a couple, concern for the emotional health of others. We are to love the word of God, and we are to love and value the presence of God and Hearing God’s voice, and we are to have the heart of Advancing God’s Kingdom on this earth, that His Kingdom come on this earth.

By the grace of God, I have experienced several different types of angels in my life, here is one of them that I had shared before.

It was 2007, my family were working as a Missionary in the South India, we used to find the street beggars and the poors, some friends used to help us as well, we were few of us, and with several people who support us as well, we used to feed the hungry widows and children beggars, sometimes went out to preach the Gospel.

One evening as I was going out and trying to gather some beggars from the street, a group of non believers chased me with a stick trying to bit me up, and told me to stop what I was doing. As Jesus hid himself when they tried to stone Him in John 8:59, I too ran quickly and hid myself, I told no one except my wife, therefore we can’t continue our works there, they have stopped the Advancement of the Kingdom in that area. So we went back to Aizawl, NE India for a while.

At that moment I was too discouraged, I told to myself, “Even if I am asked to preach in the church I will never preach again”.

But one night two angels came to my dream and told me that the next coming week I was appointed to preach in the church, I already made up my mind not to preach, not to preach anywhere anymore. But those two angels of the Lord told me, “And you must preach”, and then I suddenly woke up, the two angels were right there before me which I saw them with my own physical eyes.

The next day when we went to church they announced that the coming next week I’ve got a preaching time in my church, exactly as the two angels told me the night before in a dream which I also saw them physically they announced the next day in the church.

So, I’ve got to preach in the church again, and that night when I preached there was also miraculous healing taking place while I was preaching, one physical healing, including one emotional healing.

That was amazing, we stop the Kingdom Advancement in that place, we left the place, we were discouraged, fully discouraged, it was a worst moment for us, but then we can call it “Angels after persecutions”, or “Angels after great discouragements”.

Heb 1:14 says, “Are they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?”

God communicate to His people in many different ways including Angels. Angels are one of the ways God speak to His people, we find countless of angelic manifestations in the Bible, we find in the Bible that many times God sent His angels to minister to people in a really important matters.

When Jezebel tried to kill Elijah and Elijah ran for his life, an angel of the Lord appeared to him (1 Kings 19:5-8).
The birth of Jesus Christ was foretold by an angel of the Lord to Mary (Luke 1:29-38).
An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream while he tried to leave Mary the mother of Jesus (Matthew 1:20-21).
When Herod tried to kill the baby King, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream (Matt 2:13)
An angel of the Lord told Joseph in a dream that those who tried to take the child’s life are dead (Matt 2:19-20)

So, angels are one of the ways God speak to His people, and many times they come in really important matters. It is also important to know that when there are angelic manifestations, or when God speak to us through angels, it is more clear than many other ways of hearing God’s voice, it is easy to remember for a long time, and seems more real in our thoughts and hearts.

We know that God can speak to us in many different ways, for example, when God speak to us through impressions, sometimes we do not recognize that God is speaking to us, because it comes in the form of our heart desires, that means God speaking to our heart, putting His heart in our heart, sometimes we don’t know that God is speaking to us even though every voice of the Lord is valuable. Again Still small voice is more clear than impressions where we can communicate with God, but when God sent His angels, it is very clear, it can be remembered for a long time, it can even break our made up stubborn minds in an instant where our friends, family, and others wouldn’t win over us, an angelic manifestations and God speaking to us through angels can win over us, it is a very high level of God speaking to us very clearly, therefore many times God will often use angels to communicate His words in many important matters.

On the other hand it is also important to know that even though God may use angels many times to communicate important matters to His people, God can also use any form of ways to communicate a very important matters, for example God can also use Impressions, songs, friends, and anything else to communicate one of the most important matters of your life, there is no limit where we can put them in a box in the way He communicate to us, when it’s God’s voice they all are important.

Angels

Another 2 ways where we can say that angels are greatly involved in our life is when we are in Worship, deeply worshipping God, and in the presence of the Father heart of God to minister to God’s people, to bring healing to people.

If God spoke to Mary the mother of Jesus that she is going to conceive a baby through impressions, still small voice, Prophets, or any other form of ways, it would be hard for the virgin Mary to believe that she is going to conceive a baby, it would be hard for anyone to believe that, we can conclude that the virgin lady Mary would thought it’s just her voice rather than the voice of the Lord, but she could say, “I am the Lord’s servant, may it happen to me according to your word”, it was because God sent an angel to communicate to her. Even though there are many different ways God can speak to Mary, God chose angels to minister to her, therefore God has a purpose for His angels to communicate to His people. And therefore many times God would use angels to communicate some really important matters to His people.
