THE LORD IS SPEAKING. ARE YOU LISTENING? THIS MESSAGE IS GOOD EVERYDAY.
HEARING FROM THE LORD IS THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON TO LEARN, AND IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON THAT WE NEED TO TEACH TO OTHERS ESPECIALLY TO OUR CHILDREN AND NEW CHRISTIANS. We need to learn how to pray and talk to God,and how to listen to him most of all. You wouldn’t just go in front of a King and start asking for things and then turn around and leave. “Be still,and know that I am God: I will be exalted,among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”(Psalm 46:10). “And he said,Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And,behold, the Lord passed by,and a great and strong wind rent the mountains,and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord,but the Lord was not in the wind:and after the wind and earthquake;but the Lord was not in the earthquake:And after the earthquake a fire: but the Lord was not in the fire:and after the fire a still small voice.” (I Kings 19:11,12). “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee,saying This is the way,walk ye in it,when ye turn to the right hand,and when ye turn to the left.” (Isaiah 30:21). If you have faith and you are in the spirit, when you ask the Lord for an answer you can take the first thing that comes to you. First impressions are usually from the Lord,if we are sincerely seeking him. There needs to be special times when we have desperate prayer to the Lord,when you cry out to him with your whole heart,and on your face alone with God,and not just on your knees,but with tears and sincere desperation,and even prostrate yourself before him. “Then shall ye call upon me,and ye shall go and pray unto me,and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me,and find me,when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:12,13). Jesus said,to enter into your closet and pray in secret. “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet,and when thou hast shut thy door,pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. “ (Matthew 6:6).The Lord will speak to you in a still small voice,and other ways also. Sometimes he will speak to you with a dream or a vision. “For God Speaketh once,yea twice,yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream,in a vision of the night,when deep sleep falleth upon men,in slumberings upon the bed;Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from him. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.”(Job 33:14-18). “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20).You have to check everything out by the Word. True Revelations from God will not contradict the Bible ! ! ! The Lord did not stop speaking after he gave the Book of Revelation to John. God’s broadcasting station is always on, we just need to learn how to tune into it. The Lord is always trying to speak to us and show us new things. He even speaks to us through his creation, but don’t worship the creation more than the Creator. “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:” (Romans 1:20). One time God even made a donkey to speak. “And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do. And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab. And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him. And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way. But the angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side. And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall: and he smote her again. And the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left. And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff. And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times? And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee. And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay. Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face. And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me: and the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive. And Balaam said unto the angel of the Lord, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again. And the angel of the Lord said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.”(Numbers 22:20-35). The Lord spoke to me one time through a Television show. It was about a guy with my same name who had two kids which I had two at this time. He was an Armored car operator, which I was at the time. Some bad guys had kidnapped his wife & kids to get him to deliver the money to them. I saw this show when I came home from work one day, and was so amazed that the Lord went to all this trouble to speak to me through this T.V. show, that I quit my job the next morning. Shortly after that the Armored car was involved in a robbery and shoot out and one of the drivers was killed. This happened on the same route that I took everyday, and it could have been me, I’m glad I listened to the Lord. So be on the look out, and be alert and tuned into God, He wants to speak to you today.Will you make time to listen? Remember in order to hear from the Lord , you have got to get away from all the hustle and bustle and noise and get alone and get quiet and pour out your heart to him and then get quiet and listen.He will speak to you.
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
