Hearing from God Lesson 12

Now, I’m going to tell you the next step.
My mom passed away in February of 2008. When she died, she was far from being totally healed. However, God was still true to His Word. He said to me, “Unless a seed falls in the ground, and dies, it cannot produce a harvest. Your mom is your seed.”

Since then, this ministry has broken out in signs and wonders. We have had people with steel rods in their backs healed; people with chronic body pain for 10 years healed; a woman with spots on her uterus healed; a man with cancer riddling his body be able to eat and function almost normally in the days before he died; a man named Carrol received a new lung; pneumonia was instantly healed, and many more miraculous healings.

When God tells you something, you might begin picturing in your mind how it is going to work out. BUT DO NOT DO THAT. Proceed to do what God is telling you to do, and let Him take care of how He is going to fulfill it. He will give you the steps to take, so it will manifest here on earth.

It would have been great if mom would have gotten totally healed here on earth but, it is even better that thousands of others will be healed because of her, and what we have learned through her.

Many of the revelations and teachings we share came from my experience with mom. The teaching about the Light, and the glory, the teaching about the demonic kings; all came to me through mom’s example. God does not want us to be reasoning things out ourselves, because we will get kicked in the teeth. Instead of arguing, “God, I just do not know how this is going to work out. I cannot take it!” Try doing it another way!!

Here is what we need to do in order to hear from God:

1) Do not reason things out. How do you know if you are reasoning? Are you going back and forth, back and forth? For example, if you are giving a gift to a ministry, and you ask God how much you should write the check for, and after you get quiet, you hear Him say, “$50.00.” Instead of just writing the check for $50.00, you start thinking of all the reasons why you can’t afford to give that much. Then you convince yourself that you need to hear another amount. So, get quiet again, and ask God to give you another number; telling yourself that it must have just been your own thought and not God speaking. Next you hear “$20.00.” Now you start thinking, “If I give $20.00, God might be mad, but giving $50.00 is too much, maybe I’ll just give $20.00…50/20/50/20…what should I do?!” James 1:5 says that if any of us lacks wisdom, all we have to do is ask Him, and He will give it to us generously, without finding fault. This means that you ask God a question, and He gives you an answer. It goes on to say that we must believe, and not doubt, because he who doubts is like the waves in the sea. He is a man in the boat going back and forth, back and forth. When you hear yourself reasoning, you are no longer hearing from God.

2) You cannot totally trust your mind (part of your soul). That is why God gave us our spirit man. When our spirit man is reborn, it is made perfect. Our spirit man does not hear from God incorrectly. It always gets it right. Nothing can corrupt our spirit man, once we are reborn again in Christ Jesus. You have the Spirit of Christ. Your mind, however, is in the process of being made perfect. We are constantly called to bring our mind and our thoughts captive to Christ, to overthrow strongholds in our mind, for our mind to be regenerated, and made whole. Our minds were made to be like a super-computer; able to solve the most difficult problems, so we can fix things. To have a mind that is purified, and taken captive by Christ, we must yoke it with our spirit. These two things were made to work together; they’re partners. Colossians 3:15 (AMPC), “And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].” Let the peace that happens down in your Spirit act as an umpire for the questions that arise in your mind. This scripture proves that the mind and the spirit are to be yoked together and used in tandem to be able to hear God in a clearer manner. An umpire calls the plays, (“safe” or “out”) so if you get something in your mind that is not “safe” (something that is a bad decision) you won’t have peace in your spirit. That means that particular decision is “out.” Do not pursue it! A decision that is from God; a “safe” decision; will cause you to feel peace down in your spirit. What does that peace feel like? The Scripture says, “Let peace ‘SETTLE’ with all finality all questions that arise in your mind.” Peace is a settled feeling, allowing you to move on to the next issue at hand. If you feel settled, you’ve got it. If you do not, try again until you do feel settled or stop trying (or asking), because God’s going to do it some other way.

3) If you ask God a question and you get different answers, like “No” or “Maybe” then STOP! You need to clear the atmosphere first. Pray fiercely in your spiritual language for 10-20 minutes. Do not ask God anything. Just press in using only your spiritual language. This is like clearing your pipe; birthing things out of your spirit man, which is never wrong. Up, up, up it comes with your prayer, and into your mind; clearing out your mind and making it a clean, quiet pallet to receive and hear the voice of God. This also clears demonic chatter around you. Once you do this, then you can ask Him, “Okay, God, now what do I do?”

4) When you ask God a question and He answers you, then ask Him, “God, if that was You, give me a scripture.” God always confirms His Word with scriptures. You may think there is no scripture that will answer the question you asked, but you will be surprised. God has it all. Any questions you have will be confirmed. Remember that the word or sentence comes into your mind, and the knowing comes with the peace; the confirmation in your spirit. He’ll always give you a scripture, if it is His voice you are hearing, AND He will give it to you quickly. Do not try to force anything by taking yourself to scriptures that you know will fit the question. Let Him PLACE or POP one into your mind. This is the easiest way for you to know that you are hearing from Him.

The best way to accelerate your ability to hear from God, is to get to know the One who could hear from God with NO hindrances; the One who had a clear communication to Father God ALL the time; the One who never let the demonic chatter affect Him; never used His own reasoning, or His own imaginations; the One who never acted on His own desires, will, wants, or needs. Get to know Jesus on a deeper level.

The presence of Christ is being released in a greater measure to the body of Christ than ever before. You may be thinking, “Well, I know Jesus” but we can all go DEEPER IF WE CHOOSE TO. If we knew Him like we are supposed to know Him, then we would be healed of everything that is affecting us. We ALL need to know Him more!

This is a special season of the Spirit of Christ to come and invade us, and for us to pursue Him like we have never pursued Him before.
