That voice

We are encouraged to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. But how do you listen to somebody that you do not really know? We should take heart when we read about Abraham a man who certainly did not know God. So how come the God spoke to Abraham, when Abraham did not know him?.

Well God knew he was a righteous man. When God speaks things happen, for instance, God spoke this world into existence. Have a look at Genesis and you will find “and God said”. that goes on until the forming of man. When he said ” let us make man according to our image”, we means plural. So there was somebody else with God.

That was Jesus, in the gospel of John chapter 1. verse 1. We read, In the beginning, was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. We start to see the beginning of the trinity. God spoke and the spirit of God did what was spoken.

So alright now how does that work out with us. We now have a New Testament that brings all three into play. We know that Jesus and God are the same and it is the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit that is working in our lives just like he did when the world was framed. That should thrill us to know that this is the same spirit that spoke to Abraham, Joseph and then led Jesus into the wilderness. Mathew chapter 4 Where the spirit led Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

The same spirit that confronted Saul ( Paul) on the road to Damascus and spoke to John on the isle of Patmos and told him to come up here. Then Revelation was revealed to him. Now in worldly terms that is some force to do all that.

Well, the same Holy Spirit called us and talks to us and instructs and teaches us. So we are in good company, something else? he loves us and will take us home someday. A teacher a lover and Jesus and God all rolled into one, Wow!. And if we allow him to teach us and let him increase and ourselves decrease. Then all those things that Jesus said we would do, will happen. Miracles signs and wonders? oh yes! they will. If Jesus said it, is as good as done.

There is a prophecy that is out. That God is speaking to the churches. Not in that dramatic voice that we would like to hear. But in that very quiet voice , just like it was to Elijah when he was in a cave. He had run away from Jezebel and God asked him what are you doing here.

Elijah was not in a right place with God. Fear does not belong to us. Are we waiting for the dramatic, instead of that gentle  voice?.

In 1 John chapter one verse seven. But if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light. We have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his son cleanses us from all sin. This a  dramatic statement from the throne of God, first of all, we have to walk in the light.

This is telling us that if we want to hear that voice, we are instructed to walk in the light. How do we do that? by coming away from darkness. Giving more time to the reading of the word. Getting closer to God and listening. Sounds simple, But this takes time and practice, but if that is what we really want. then as the saying goes. Just go for it and be patient, and it will happen. Need help? then ask the Holy Spirit, and this renowned teacher is there for us.

Jesus said in Mathew 11. verses 29-30

Take my yoke upon you and LEARN from me. For i am gentle and humble in heart. And you will find rest for your souls.. 30. For my yoke is easy and light.

So when we are struggling to hear his voice, we need to learn from him. I say again learn from him. Jesus is offering to teach us and learn about him. He said in verse 30. My yoke is easy and my burden is light.

So the yoke of learning from him is easy and light. Now Jesus said this and it is so true. We want to hear that voice, then we need to learn from him. We can remember the voices of our school teachers. because we spent time with them. Do it with Jesus and that voice will become so very real.
