Hearing God part 2

  1. 1. “Of course God is alive, we just talked” How to’s of hearing
  2. 2. 1. Cry of God’s heart Jeremiah 7:21-23 (NIV) 21 "'This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go ahead, add your burnt offerings to your other sacrifices and eat the meat yourselves! 22 For when I brought your forefathers out of Egypt and spoke to them, I did not just give them commands about burnt offerings and sacrifices, 23 but I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in all the ways I command you, that it may go well with you.
  3. 3. Jeremiah 7:21-23 (AMP) 21 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat the flesh [if you will. It will avail you nothing]. 22 For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices. 23 But this thing I did command them: Listen to and obey My voice, and I will be your God and you will be My people; and walk in the whole way that I command you, that it may be well with you.
  4. 4. Exodus 6:7 (NIV) 7 I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. …
  5. 5. 2. From Old Covenant to New Covenant– we get to hear God ourselves.

  6. 6. 3. Jesus kept it simple --- so keep it simple! John 5:19-20 (NIV) 19 Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does.
  7. 7. John 6:38 (NIV) 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. John 12:50 (NIV) 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say."
  8. 8. 4. You can hear God's voice John 8:47 (NIV) 47 He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God." John 10:4-5 (NIV) 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice.“
  9. 9. John 16:13-15 (NIV) 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
  10. 10. 5. How to hear God # 1: Listening to LOGOS 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV) 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. John 5:24 (NIV) 24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word (LOGOS – Written word) and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.

  13. 13. 7. Fascinating references on hearing God speak to you Proverbs 8:34 (NIV) 34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. Ecclesiastes 5:1 (NIV) 1 Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong.

He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. Isaiah 50:4 (MSG) 4 The Master, God, has given me a well-taught tongue, So I know how to encourage tired people. He wakes me up in the morning, Wakes me up, opens my ears to listen as one ready to take orders.
  18. 18. 8. Some not so fascinating passages on not listening Ezekiel 33:32 (NIV) 32 Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice.
  19. 19. Jeremiah 6:10 (NIV) 10 To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it.
  20. 20. James 1:23-24 (NIV) 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
  21. 21. Amos 8:12 (NIV) 12 Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the Lord, but they will not find it.
