Archive for the ‘Hearing God’s Voice’ Category

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.

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.

It is briefed that 15 times in the Old Testament Bible about Father, and 254 times in the New Testament Bible.

Positive speaking:

If you have practice hearing the voice of God in regularity personally, or if you have been in an environment where you shared together in regularity what God spoke to you, you will experience that most of the time He will speak very simple words to us and very positive, He will speak about how much He loves us, how precious we are to Him, how valuable we are to Him, how He sees us, how He is with us, how He treasure us, how we are the apple of His eyes, His encouragement, His comfort, His strengthening, His uplifting, His appreciations, His praise toward us, how He is proud of us as His son or daughter, all those things are the Heart of the Father God showing to us. through hearing the voice of God.

In the same way, it is important to speak positive things to our children to build healthy emotional health, healthy self image and healthy confident, you are handsome/ beautiful, you are so precious, God gave you to us, appreciations and praise.

Identities In Christ:

If you measure your value and your worth by anything rather than your “Identities in Christ”, either by the positions you hold, by the degrees you have, by the wealth you have, or by your looks, or any other kinds of outward things, you are probably having some kind of Insecurities inside yourself. You will need to know your “Identities in Christ” and meditate on them.

You are a beloved child of the most high God, highly valued and precious.

Knowing and experiencing

Respect, value:

The language that were often spoken to you in your childhood and as you grew up, either Spanish, French, Chinese, Hindi, or English will probably be the language you use in your Adulthood. In the same way, our childhood experiences can greatly affect our adulthood.

If you were treated with respect during your childhood and as you grew up, you are likely to respect children in your adulthood. If you were not respected, you are likely to disrespect children in your character. If you were often abused as a child you are likely to abuse other children in your adulthood. If you were valued as a child and as you grew up, you are likely to value other children.

Experiencing the love of the Father God:

Even if you were dishonored, unrespected, unvalued, feeling unworthy, feeling not precious as a child and as you grew up, knowing and experiencing the love of the Father God can change your character and make you respect and value other children, knowing and experiencing the love of the Father God will make you see children as precious and valuable.

You are a beloved child of the most high God, highly valued and precious.

One of the main purpose of this writing is that we must be careful not to explain our prophetic words, hearing God, prophetic pictures, prophetic night dreams and visions by our own self without interpretations and revelations from the Lord, whether they are for others or for ourselves.

Everyone can hear God:

One of the main responsibilities of the Prophets are to communicate what God is saying, as well as that the people of God may hear and see for themselves, besides that the Prophetic carry many different blessings. Even though we are not to depend on Prophets, it is still utmost important to know the importance of the prophetic. One of the indication is that, if the people of our church do not hear God for themselves, it could probably mean that we do not have Prophet in our church.

Even though we are not to depend on Prophets, Churches, regions, nation, and nations greatly need Prophets in different parts of the world, so that there would be prophetic utterances being released, and the people of God would hear and see the things of the Spirit, and that everyone would hear God for themselves.

Receive Interpretations and Revelations:

It is important for prophetic people and anyone to know that when we receive prophetic words, prophetic pictures, have prophetic dreams at night, hear God’s voice, that we don’t try to explain them unless we receive interpretations or revelations, but we can ask God to give us interpretations and revelations, so that we can receive the words what God want to say to us. This is because what God mean may not be what we understand. Sometimes Hearing God’s voice comes in a simple way that everyone will understand, but there are times we need to interpret.

For example: When God told me in 2006, “You are my Warrior”, it was inspiring, powerful, uplifting, strengthening, but did not receive further interpretation or revelation about Warrior.

We may all know about “Prayer Warrior”, someone who intercede on behalf of others, if I tried to explain what God spoke to me, I might explain it that way, but it was not what God meant to me, I am not suppose to explain on my own. What God meant to me by saying, “You are my Warrior” was that of “Apostolic Warrior”, someone who Advance the Kingdom of God.

Many times the Lord will give interpretations or revelations at once, other times we might need to ask God for interpretations or revelations when we hear His voice.

Another simple example – One day when my wife and I were hearing God’s voice, it was around 2009 or 2010, God gave us a picture – There were two woods, the taller wood was supported by the smaller wood, and then the Lord gave us interpretation about this prophetic picture, the taller wood was me (David), and the smaller wood was my wife Jenny, by which the Lord mean that my wife Jenny was a good supporter to me in our works (in our ministry, in our works for the Lord). Which was encouraging, uplifting, and a joy.

One more example – One day I was speaking in tongues in our room, and then Interpret, the interpretation was that Advancing the Kingdom of God was my purpose in life, even though I always have a desire and heart to Advance the Kingdom of God, I never knew that it was my purpose in life, and today it even became the purpose of our ministry, which is also the purpose of God for this earth, since Apostles carry the purposes of God for this earth.

Therefore, Interpretations of prophetic words, prophetic pictures, prophetic dreams, and the voice of the Lord are important, they help us see what God is saying to us. Sometimes the Lord may reveal the meaning of the prophetic word to the one you gave if you got a prophetic word for someone but not to you, they may share to you again later or even cry out. And many times when we receive prophetic dreams, visions, pictures, or hear God for our own self, the Lord may give us interpretations at once when we hear His voice, other times we might need to ask the Lord for interpretations or revelations, many times God will also speak to us so simple that everyone can understand at once, that even children can easily understand what God mean.

God wants to get involve in many areas of our lives, even in what we think are simple things. Sometimes it’s just that we don’t recognize it.

Two Experiences of Hearing God’s voice for example, from the month of April 2015 –

1. After we’ve got a new baby this month, our 2nd son Rock stayed with his Grand parents and his aunty for a while, after 2 days I don’t feel good, I felt like we need to get him back now, it’s time to get him back for he is only 3yrs old.

So we took him back, that was the Holy Spirit speaking to us that it’s time to get our son Rock back at home.
It was okay for 1 or 2 days, but for more than than we don’t feel good. That was simply God’s voice.

2. Several times our son Rock wants to play games with me, want to watch movie with me, wants me to get interested in what he is interested even while we were busy, So I felt like he need more of my attention as a child, that was simply God speaking to me.

Even though we are not to go by our feelings, many times God will speak to us through our feelings and thoughts.

After feeding back these Hearing God experiences, this verse came to my thought – Ephe 6:4 “Fathers (mothers, guardians), do not anger your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction that comes from the Lord.”

God speak in different ways:

When God speak, He speak in many different ways. Sometimes when God speak, it may be to encourage us, strengthen us, or edify us. Other times giving directions, showing love, bringing healing, or bring convictions. Other times giving us revelations, and revelations from the scripture. Other times God command us to do something specific.

Sometimes it is not sin, other times it is sin:

Many times when God speak to us it will not necessarily be sin even if we do not do them, but there will always be a blessing to us if we do, and many times we could lost that blessings installed for us. At the same time, many times it will be sin if we do not do them.

For example, while we were in Ywam, we asked the Lord where He want us to go for outreach. So, we listened to God’s voice, but we were unprepared at the timing because of the visas’s and other things, so we didn’t went to that country.

But if we got divine calling or divine leading from the Lord, there are possibilities that we sinned against God if we don’t do them. We find that Jonah sinned against God for not obeying, for being disobedient to the divine calling of God.

Rebellion to God’s voice and the witchcraft spirit:

When we hear God’s voice, and we got specific and divine command from the Lord, and we ignore that voice of the Lord, and we don’t want to do it, it is the same spirit of the witchcraft working.

Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Voice of the LORD? (1 Sam 15:22)

The Lord delight when we obey the voice of the Lord. And rebellion to the voice of the Lord is like the sin of divination, which is a witchcraft spirit. (1 Sam 15:22)

We later find that an evil spirit entered inside Saul, and Saul tried to kill David. We also find that Saul inquire a witch because the Lord did not answer him anymore, because the Lord no more speak to him either by dreams or Urim or Prophets, for he was disobedient to the (divine command) voice of the Lord. All these things start with being disobedient to the voice of the Lord.

Every time we obey the voice of the Lord, we are drawing closer to Him. And every time we disobeyed the voice of the Lord, we draw ourselves farther from God. When we are rebellion against the voice of the Lord, we are welcoming a witchcraft spirit.

Therefore it is important, the way we treat prophetic words, divine revelations, revelations, and hearing God’s voice.

Sin of divination is the work of witchcraft, it is the same spirit that work when we rebel against the voice of the Lord.
