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.

How to know who you are?

Posted: November 25, 2017 in Other Teachings

1. Passion: What’s your passion? Your passion will usually tells you who you are, but sometimes it is also important to check our passion why? ” Why I like this”. The gifts we have are not always who we are or called to do, but our passion could be.

2. Hearing God’s voice: Sometimes we might not even know that we are passionate on something, or we have not known who we are in God, but God can tell us many of the things of who we are as we have relationships with Him.

3. Revelations: What type of revelations you naturally usually received without any striving for it? That could be part of the prove of who you are and what you are suppose to do.

4. The Anointing and the Angels that are with you will usually determine who you are.

It is important to know who we are, because we are to serve God out of who we are. The revelations you received most will usually determine who you are, how you are to serve God.

– Knowing our Identities in Christ will help us hear God’s voice better, and continually hearing God’s voice will build our Identities in Christ.

Knowing who we are in Christ will help us approach God more closely, with confident, and faith to hear His voice. “You are a precious and valuable child of God”.

– Having a clean heart will help you hear God’s voice better, and will protect us from hearing the voices of demons, it is important that we make sure our heart is clean before God when we listen to Him. 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).

As a believers of Christ, we all will face days of warfare and days of battle, and just because we believe in God and because we are children of God. Especially if you’re serving God in any form of ways, you will face all kinds of battles and warfare. It could be sicknesses, it could be the devil’s trying to take your life, it could be the devil’s attacking your teams, community, or attacking your church, it could be the devil’s attacking your words, finances, or your family, there can be many different types of warfare.

For example, when we are sick in physical, it also effects our emotions, minds, and soul, which can in turn effects our spirit and mindsets. Therefore it might also be bit blunt to hear God clearly, or the devil might be taking his deceiving schemes that the sicknesses comes from God, blaming God that God gives you sicknesses and making you feel self justified or spiritual. Therefore, we need to know the truths clearly that we are not deceived by the lies of the devil.

These times of warfare are the times we need to be careful about our words, our thinking, and about our hearing God, and recheck our hearing God, because in times of warfare whether its sicknesses, financial problems, church problems, community or teams, Satan work to blind our Spiritual eyes and deaf our Spiritual ears, and these could be the times our hearing God gets blunt, and many times our own desire and opinions may come big in our thoughts.

There can be many different types of warfare. Sometimes we may just need to relax from our works and take some rest, and other times we may need to defend the truths of the Kingdom, and God may want us to defend the truths of the Kingdom, however many times we may need to be quiet, recheck our words, and spend time with God.

In times of warfare and battles, most of the times we will just need to spend time with God, clear our thoughts and made up minds, rest in Him, check our hearts, and spend time with Him, listening to Him and having conversations with Him, to sharpen our hearing God’s voice and our wisdom.

However, even after that, it is still important to be careful with our words, remove distractions, made up minds, and recheck our hearing God, and many times it will be important to be quiet regarding the matters in the days of warfare, unless we are defending the important truths of the Kingdom.

Your Kingdom come, your will be done, as in heaven so on earth.

Is God really Good?

Posted: August 30, 2016 in Other Teachings

“God is good” is a famous short sentence, but then is God really good?

God is good than we thought, as human beings we often picture God according to our life experiences, but God is much more good than our life experiences.

God give His rain to the good and the bad, and His day light to the good and the bad, this shows that God is good. He give daily foods to the good and the bad, and also feed the sparrows daily, this shows that God is good.

Jesus addressing to the evil people:

If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! (Matt 7:11)

If you got children you will understand that even bad people wants to bless and give good gifts to their children, but then our Father in heaven is so much more good than mere human beings.

God is good

In this verse we also find that Jesus was addressing to the evil people and told them about the goodness of the Father God. Jesus addressed them as if they were bad children of the Father God, or as if they were evil Father who were evil.

But then Jesus said to them, “How much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”. Let’s say that “God is really Good”.

6 purposes of tithes

Posted: August 13, 2016 in Other Teachings

We may believe in eating pig, we may not believe in eating pig, we may believe in giving tithes, we may not believe in giving tithes, however, we need to believe in generosity.

Here are six purposes of tithes as we find in the book of Deuteronomy –

1. To revere and honor God (Deu 14:23)
2. To support the servants of God (Deu 14:29)
3. The least, the last and the lost (Deu 26:12)
4. To help the Fatherless and the motherless (Deu 26:12)
5. To help the widows in need (Deu 26:12)
6. To help those who are in need (Deu 26:12)

At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, so that the Levites, because he has no portion or inheritance among you, and the foreigners, the orphan and the widow who are in your town, shall come and eat and be satisfied. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all your work. (Deu 14:28-29)

When you have finished setting aside a tenth of all your produce in the third year, the year of tithing, then you shall give it to the Levite, to the stranger, to the orphan and to the widow, that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied. “You shall say before the LORD your God, ‘I have removed the sacred portion from my house, and also have given it to the Levite and the alien, the orphan and the widow, according to all You commanded. (Deu 26:12-13)
