Is it your conscience speaking
or The Holy Spirit?
You can listen to a reading of this sermon by clocking the play button below.
“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”John 3:8
The first time I heard the Holy Spirit talk to me was in December 2002 I had a “come to Jesus moment” which led me to leave the music business. Throughout the prior year I was working on the David Allen Coe tour. So I was standing in line in a convenience store with my girlfriend, and I had this feeling in my conscience telling me to pray for the lady standing in front of us. My girlfriend asked me what I was doing because my eyes were closed.
I said, “I am praying for the women in front of us.”
She said, “Why?”
It was this profound feeling that my conscience was telling me that it was the right thing to do, to pray for this stranger whom I had not even spoken to. Often times we ignore these messages coming to us, but in this case I listened.
Well, I have never heard Yahweh in a loud voice from heaven speak to me in the 18 years that I have been a minister. In fact if I ever hear Yahweh call me in a loud voice from heaven I may look up and ask Him, “Morgan Freeman, is that you?” (.. like in the movie Bruce Almighty) LOL.
Yahweh also speaks to me in movies, TV shows, books and such. For example here are a few things Yahweh has communicated to me through various media:
- Doing nothing is as bad as doing the wrong thing
- War and religion are no place for children
- Afflictions are sent to bring us to our Bibles and our knees
- Only the dead fish swim with the stream
- The key to being a good leader is to be feared without being hated
- Anything with two heads is demonic
- Don’t take it personal it is not about you
- Political correctness is spiritual blindness
- If you work hard enough you can become lucky
- Not trusting anyone is a terrible way to live.
We all want to hear from Yahweh.
“Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”Psalms 37:7
”But the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.”Mark 4:19
With any relationship it takes time and effort, and the same is true for your relationship with Yahweh. The more you spend in prayer and reading Yahweh’s Word (the word of Christ, Jesus, Our Lord and Savior) the more you will draw closer to Him and be able to hear him and be able to recognize His Wisdom.
And don’t just read a little, then pray a little, only to then run off to do other things. You have to be still and wait on Him to speak to you. Once you have learned to recognize His Voice then you will see Him in everything and I mean everything! Still to this day I hear Him in my subconscious mind it really is that simple to me. Remember not everyone is a prophet but everyone has the ability to hear from Yahweh. Please message me if you need prayer to hear from Yahweh?
May God bless you, and keep you near to Him.
Amen & Shalom
