Discerning The Voice of God

How do you discern who’s voice you are listening to? Any voice that speaks contrary to The Word of God is literarily not of God.

God spoke to Moses in the book of Exodus chapter 20 – (read for clarity), where He gave the Israelites commandments, laws, and principles to live by. In the New Testament, when Jesus was asked the greatest of these commandments by the Pharisees of His days, Jesus responded thus:

Matthew 22: 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments

When you then hear any voice that leads you to hate God or other humans, you should know that, that voice is not of God. Any voice that instruct you to illtreat others, oppress them, oppose, malign or dissociate from anyone under any guise is not of God. Matthew 22:39 says to love others as yourself.

How do you discern whose voice you are listening to? Whose voice are you following? God’s voice or Satan’s?

The voice that encourages acts that produces evidence of the fruits of the spirit as stated in Galatians 5:22 is the voice of God.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Any voice that encourages division, lies – for the devil is the father of lies – John 8:44; – oppression, abandonment, denial of justice, truth, dignity, equality of all men is definitely not of God. Any voice that speaks fear into your heart, unsettles your peace, and encourages wickedness is of Satan

A 16th-century priest named Dom Lorenzo Scupoli wrote, “The devil does his utmost to banish peace from one’s heart, because he knows that God abides in peace and it is in peace that He accomplishes great things.”

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

John 8: 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

And God says, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37 &38

The voices that tells you not to speak with another, encourages hate and division, causes disharmony amongst people, abandon cordiality and civility, feed your ego by taking you on ego trips, makes you think you are equal to God and places you as God in the lives of others is of the devil.

The voice of Satan will never take you to the path of humility, gentleness, kindness, empathy, self control and peace.

Father, we ask for the spirit of discernment so that we may know when you are speaking to us, and grant us grace so we may promptly obey your every word.

Lord, by your Holy spirit help us to know when Satan is speaking to us, grant us grace to resist him so he can flee from us – James 4:7: we ask in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom!

Vulnerable? Grace Will Speak!

You must learn to keep your weakness between you and your Savior.

No matter how weak your flesh is, may the Lord strengthen you with might by His Holy Spirit in your inner man – Ephesians 3:16.

Your Spirit man need to be alert at all times, atuned to heavens frequency, or else you will become a shish kebab in the hand of the enemies of your soul! May the Lord shield His anointed. Amen

Lean on your Savior. Receive strength today in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Your bosom friend may have been waiting for that very day of your vulnerability to strike you down dead!

You must never forget the story of Samson and Delilah – Judges 16

Father Lord, every slimy snake lurking around, waiting and watching for us to slip so as to strike, may they wait endlessly.

Father let us never break the edge and give room for the serpent to strike in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

Shalom!

Supremacy In Him!

Christ is the image of the invisible God. The first born of all creation. For in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or powers, or rulers, or authorities; all things were created through him and for him.

Christ Jesus is before all things and in him all things holds together. Christ Jesus is the head of the body, the Church; he is the beginning and the first born from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:15-18

Let this sink into your subconscious and no devil, demon, witch or wizard, no principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world will be able to oppress you or keep you in bondage to fear.

Jesus has supremacy over all and you are in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!

Shalom! Shalom!

Don’t Subvert! Or Compromise!

There is absolutely not a soul that lent itself to the devil that will come out unscathed.

Before you go all out on the offensive, to subvert, carry out the dictates of demons, do yourself a favour, read the story of Judas in The Gospel! Matthew 26 from  verse 14 on.

And if I may suggest, watch Fallen by Denzel Washington. When the demons take over, they use and discards! What then?

Do not compromise good judgment for injustice to gain the whole world and lose your soul!

If you have to steal, kill, and destroy another to take hold, achieve your desired goal, working of ” miracles”, maintain status quo, and control, and the likes, you are nothing but an instrument of Satan for he is the one that have come to steal, kill and destroy – John 10:10

We will not be afraid for Christ Jesus our Savior has overcome and made a public spectacle of Satan himself – Colossians 2:15

Christ Jesus’s blood still speaks and is speaking right now for The Saints!

If you are not under the covering of The Blood of Jesus, the safest place to be is right here, in Christ.

Call upon Him today!

Jesus Saves!

Wondering!Yet Delivered!

Why would Legion, the many demon that took over the man in Mark 5 request not to be sent out of the area? Why preferring to possess animals instead of leaving the area? The demons were afraid of judgement, they did not want to be sent into the abyss, they have gained a foothold in the area, they had to stay even if its in pigs.

Demons are spirit being, they need a body to operate on earth. Pray that your mind, body and soul will not be taken over by such in Jesus name

The Bible in Revelation 12:7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

In Revelation 12 verse 12 the scriptures stated “Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you!

Ever since the devil has been owing sway over the earth, pursuing and attacking the seed of The Woman of Revelation 12:13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child….. the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon (Satan) was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus

The request of Mark 5:10 was made to enable them continue their task of waging war on those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Who would have thought the demon possessed man was ordained before the foundation of the earth was laid to be an evangelist – Jeremiah 1:5?

The devil knew and came in legion, yet God’s plan and purpose still triumph. Jesus set him free! May the blood of Jesus set you and I free to fulfill our God given destiny also. Amen! Hallelujah

We can see the effect of these demonic agent everywhere in individual lives, on pews, pulpits, homes, councils, politics, judiciary, everywhere, with evil laws, evil deeds, counsel and what not spewing out left right and center to trap believers like this man was trapped until Jesus showed up.

Almighty God, you know all things. Today I ask that you will show up for me, my brothers and sisters.

Lord, we need you to show us the self destructive path we may have taken as a result of demonic influence.

Ancient of Days deliver us and set us free from every sin that easily binds.

Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Most High God we welcome you into our midst, have your way in our hearts, in the hearts of your people.

Thank you Lord for your mercy, without which no man can stand.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
