I have a secret to share with you.

Jesus says,

“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.”

John 14:17

The Spirit of Truth

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.”

John 4:24


“Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.”

1 Samuel 2:2

Jesus said,

“I and my Father are one.”

John 10:10


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:”

John 17:21,22

God in Christ

God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself.  Our Father worked through His son.  Jesus walked in the spirit by listening to His Father’s 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.

Talking with God is normal

Most people look at you a bit funny if you say, “God talks to me from inside my head and heart.”  However, from the scripture, we know that God dwells in us through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, where else are you going to hear His voice?

Jesus said,

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”

John 10:27

We, as sheep in the flock of our Lord, are supposed 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 every day to keep them fed and safe.

Talking with God is no secret

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 an 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 no secret, it is a gift that is 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 just drops into their mind in a way 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.

God communicates with anyone who listens

Frankly, there is really no mystery of how God communicates with us at all.  It is just that many have never really thought it through or 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 is 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 give you the tools to hear His voice.  God is the one you need to be speaking and listening to. Once you understand there is no secret of how to do that, our Father will take it from there.
