I’ve Got A Secret…
I have a secret to share with you.
It is written,
“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive,because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
The Spirit of truth is simply the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is simply God who is holy and is a spirit. It is written,
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
“Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.“
1 Samuel 2:2
“I and my Father are one.”
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:”
God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. Our Father worked through His son. Jesus walked in the spirit buy listening to His Fathers Holy Spirit which filled Him. He did not do what seemed right to His natural mind but lived by every word that His Father spoke to Him. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Jesus is the pattern that we are to follow and emulate.
This secret is this,
“The Holy Spirit dwells in you. Therefore, when God speaks to you He speaks from within you. You hear His voice in your mind.”
I mean, where else would you hear Him? If someone is living with you in a house and he speaks to you, His voice comes from inside the house not out side it.
Most people look at you a bit funny if you say, “God talks to me inside my head.” However, from the scripture we know that God indwells us through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, where else are you going to hear His voice?
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”
We, as sheep in the flock of God, are suppose to hear the voice of God as a normal everyday occurrence. Sheep are not just herded once every few months but they are in constant contact with their shepherd. His voice is the voice they know and trust everyday to keep them feed and safe.
Again, many people look at you and think or say, “who are you to claim that God speaks directly to you?” To that I say, “I am just a ordinary Christian who is filled with the Holy Spirit.” The fact of the matter is that speaking with God and hearing His voice is supposed to be “normal” for every Christian who is filled with His Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a gift that available to anyone and everyone who asks (read Luke chapter 11).
Many people say they “feel” God wants to do this or that which is normal too. They say they are “goaded” by His Spirit. Some say they have a “knowledge” of what God wants them to do which is just drops into their mind that they can’t explain. The truth is that the Holy Spirit is in you doing all those things to try to communicate with you His intentions and instructions so that He can reveal His will through you to the world. God is trying to live His life through you and reconcile the world to Himself just as He was doing through Jesus Christ.
There is really no mystery of how God communicates with us at all. It is just that many have never really thought it through and realized that if God dwells in us He speaks from the place where He is at. Hearing the voice of God is available for everyone who God’s sheep and should be the norm of the Christian experience.
He is a simple truth:
God talks to everyone who will listen.
In conclusion, I don’t want to teach you a new theology to just fill your minds with another set of rules to follow. I want to liberate you by connecting you to the Holy Spirit and giving you the tools to hear His voice. God is the one you need to speaking and listening too. Once you understand how to do that our Father will take it from there.
