God can speak to us today in many ways? Are you listening?

 
Too many false persons try to define God solely based on their own limited personal experiences, knowledge, and if it did not happen to them it cannot happen to anyone else… Dream on!! This is particularly true when we talk about spiritual things, spiritual growth, things like Prayer, Healing, Spiritual gifts, the Bible, Hearing God Speak, Church Operations, the Holy Spirit.
 
“You are not to go to the left or to the right unless you hear a voice ( of the Holy Spirt) saying this is the way walk there in”.. Many of us have not learned as to how to hear this voice .
 
God leads us in many ways, through his word, through people, but God will confirm his will for us still too. I have had often had to learn spiritual truths the hard way, by trying to do my own thing and failing at it, and Jesus reminding me that I could do nothing without him. Now I pray before I do anything and I await his instructions, if God does not lead me, or tells me not to do something, I tend not to do it. I had bought a pair summer shorts recently and I wanted to get matching T-shirt to it too.. I had tried a few stores but was unable to get the matching color that I had wanted. So I prayed about it and God told me not to look for it. I have learned he will deal with it his way and in his time. So I went along with my normal agendas. I had to go the drug store to get my medicine renewed so I did so. I was surprised to find the matching T-shirt, in the color I had wanted on sale at half price too in the drug store. After I pray I have come to learn to expect God will answer the prayer, I do not have to do it in my own strength.

 http://christiantheology.wordpress.com/2008/06/28/god-said-to-me/  You cannot falsely limit God to speak solely by the word of God the Bible.. but always you can confirm all God says to you by the Bible.. any new or personal revealtions will not contradict the Bible for sure,

The people who also tell us to use only the Bible to hear God often still lie further to us.. they often also ask us also to use men’s commentaries, instead of the Holy Spirit to next interpret the Bible.

  
(Eph 4:18 KJV)  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
  
When you talk about what the scriptures say you honestly should mean how you interpret what the scripture says.. cause too many of us read different things out of the same scriptures as we all do know firstly.. Amazing I post my messages on my professing Christian sites and half of them delete them.. Why? they have a hidden agenda of their own, they are not interested in honestly sharing true Christianity now.
 
“ Any religious system or leader that tells people exactly what to think and does not share with them their own struggles, imperfections and spiritual journey is a system or leader that is not to be trusted. None of us have all the answers; none of us grasp all of the concepts required to know God fully. Fundamentalism wants to white-wash over these struggles and instead drive home conformity. Within conformity comes control, and control means power. A system of belief that cares so little for affairs of the heart, as well as questions of the mind, is a system of belief that is not worth having.
 
Evangelical Fundamentalism replaces the worship of God , the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ   with the sole worship of the Bible, bypassing the works of the Holy Spirit it seems, though most Fundamentalists will deny that. Liberalism, too, replaces the worship of God, and of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ   with the worship of something else. In the case of Liberalism, however, the worship of God was replaced by the worship of mere human reason , and both groups are not that far apart, for they are are in error.
  
Likewise, when Liberal scholars claim that Peter did not write Second Peter or that Paul did not write Ephesians, for instance, they are worshiping their own minds, instead of worshiping God. We know that “all scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). We know that God is not a liar (Titus 1:2). Not being a liar, God cannot be responsible for inspiring lies.
 
Fundamentalists worship every word and letter in the Bible. Actually, they worship their own private interpretation of scripture (compare 2 Peter 1:20). This is the same error that the Pharisees fell into. They ended up worshiping Torah more than God, and, even more than Torah, they worshiped their own interpretations (and the interpretations of the elders) of Torah. (They still do so today, only now they have codified those traditions into the Talmud.) Likewise, so do Fundamentalists worship their own interpretation of Scripture. In both cases, “they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.” (Romans 1:25).
 
Fundamentalists  and Liberals too need to learn the truth of 2 Corinthians 3:6, “Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” They need to seek God in SPIRIT and in Truth. Liberals need to learn the truth of John 4:23 (quoted above) and of John 6:63, “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit  and they are life.” They need to seek God in Spirit and in TRUTH.   http://jmm.aaa.net.au/articles/12941.htm
  
We too often have eyes on men and what they say theses days too not on God, and what he says. What God is doing today is calling people out of the world for His name. Whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the body of Christ because they’ve been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts they need something that they don’t have and they turn to the only light they have and I think they’re saved ( what he means is that they will be eventually saved???) and they’re going to be with us in heaven.” Even  Dr. Billy Graham made several statements that simply cannot be reconciled with the basic message of salvation through Jesus Christ that he has preached his entire life. Mr. Graham has faithfully and clearly preached the Gospel for over 50 years, and since the interview he has reaffirmed his belief in Christ as the only way of salvation: For all Jews now as well? 
  
Secondly man has a free will, you cannot cast demons out of a person now if you do not believe they have them, or refuse to believe they have them even as a professing Christian.. King Saul and Apostle Judas clearly were once both anointed once, but were next demon possessed. demon controlled, however you want to play on the words, they next certainly were not Holy Spirit led… the foolish virgins of the New Testament also originally had the anointing now too.. but ran out of it.. So did Judas
 
A simple prayer I use when a person is demon possessed and is willing to have us deliver him.. for you cannot still help tohise who do not want to be helped.. and the prayer is this-  Father In Jesus name I agree and confess with the sins of this my brother, or sister, and I do now ask you in Jesus name to bind the demons and to cast any, all of them out as well. In Jesus name Satan and all your cohorts I now do demand that you now leave this body and not return again.  

It works great too, for If you do not bind them they will start to talk back to you, argue with you, manifest themselves some more..

for in realty no matter who you are, you always have a free will,  an ability to choose whom you will serve, or who will control you now Christian or not even till the day you die.. we  are not puppets or involuntary slaves, but free, with a free will.
 
So you too do chose whether you want to be Holy Spirit led, filled or not daily as well… and you can freely next choose to go to Hell again too.
  
When people attempt to subjectively add to that word, by saying God said this or God told me that, they may be in danger of becoming false prophets? So are also many of the people who deny that God had spoken to the others.. all as simple as that too.. Just cause God chose not to speak to you  outside of the Bible today does not mean he God does not speak to others still too. Or maybe you are not humbly listening, doing your own thing still too..  if so you really will never know God fully.
 
 (1 Sam 3:9 KJV)  Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 10  And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.
  
(Exo 33:11 KJV)  And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. 
 
(Num 12:6 KJV)  And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. 7  My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. 8  With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
 
(Eph 4:11 KJV)  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
 
We walk by faith and not by sight quoted here is taken now out of full context..  faith here is distorted to mean  even trusting now what a mere human now tells us is the supposed truth over the Bible..  and it  excludes other Bible verses like my sheep hear my voice and follow me, you shall not go to the left or the right unless you hear a voice behind you saying walk there in, and greater miracles shall you also do next cause I go to my Father..
 
Faith comes by hearing the word of God, in the Bible or elswhere too and not hearing   mere men.
 
thus when I see shallow arguments  of anyone still limiting today as to what God can do, even through us,  it makes me rightfully also think how shallow their Christian faith now really is.. they are still babies in the Lord and need someone to teach them the whole truth, the whole , full gospel too, for my God can do anything, Jesus is the same , yesterday, today and forever.
 
According to your faith it shall be for you as well, and you might like the foolish virgins be left behind.. ’
 
In truth also , only one of the seven Churches in Rev 2-3, Philadelphia, is promised the open door of the rapture. so what about the other 6 type of churches
  
(Mat 24:34 KJV)  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39  And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41  Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42  Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.  43  But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45  Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46  Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47  Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48  But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49  And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;  50  The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51  And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 
What’s wrong with Predictions About the End of the World such as those by Hal Lindsey  and the Dispensationalist dilemma Matthew 24:34    “What generation?  Obviously, in context, the generation that would see the signs — chief among them the rebirth of Israel.  A generation in the Bible is something like forty years.  If this is a correct deduction, then within forty years or so of 1948, all these things could take place.  Many scholars who have studied Bible prophecy all their lives believe that this is so.” (The Late Great Planet Earth, p. 54) “Jesus said “this generation shall not pass, till all these things come to pass.” What generation ? The generation that would see all these signs. We are that generation! I believe you cannot miss it. We’re that generation, and I believe we’re rapidly moving toward the coming of Christ.” (Apocalypse Planet Earth videotape, 1990, HLM)  ” ‘if’ a generation was forty years and ‘if’ the generation of the ‘fig tree’ (Matthew 24:32-34) started with the foundation of the state of Israel, then Jesus ‘might come back by 1988.’ But I put a lot of ifs and maybes in because I knew that no one could be absolutely certain.” (”We are the generation that will see the end times… and the return of Jesus.” (The 1980’s: Countdown to Armageddon (New York, Bantam, 1980), back cover. ” (The Late Great Planet Earth [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1970], p. 145). “The decade of the 1980’s could very well be the last decade of history as we know it.” (The 1980’s: Countdown to Armageddon, p. 8 (emphasis is his); cf. pp. 12, 15.) 
  
But what is also astonishing is how many of these supposedly valid Bible teachers of the end time prophecies rarely still do even agree with each other,  even with Hal Lindsey author  of the late great planet earth… [;us  ” Like most men who have acquired great wealth, prestige and influence he has spent a good deal of time chasing women. His third wife and church recently gave him the boot , Hal Lindsey is currently married to his fourth wife, having divorced his previous three.  ”   or even those many others from   the Dallas Theological cemetery many of whom do not believe in miracles today but only the existence of the anti Christ it seems.
 
“[Amos 3:7] Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
I believe that we are not to be ignorant, (not in darkness),
[1Thess 5:4] “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”
I believe that ignorance, surprise, and not knowing the hour is a punishment of not watching, and does not apply to faithful believers who repent and watch:
[Revelation 3:3] “Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.”
[Luke 12:39] “And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.”

(Col 2:16 KJV)  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17   Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
 
(Gal 3:1 KJV)  O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?  2  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3  Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4  Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. 5  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 6  Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. 7  Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. 8  And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 9  So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 10  For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11  But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12  And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14  That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
  
The New Testament Covenant made by God through Jesus Christ has replaced the Old testament covenant, which itself was mandatory to keep in those days but this old testament Covenant could never still save anyone, they still all personally were saved by their personal faith in God to save them next too. So now we as Christians have been set free from merely keeping the requirements of the past inapplicable laws.. such as solely worshipping God on Sabbath, on the new moon.. and not being allowed to eat unclean meats, etc.. As a Christian we all  should have developed by now enough spiritual insight to be able to led God lead you directly every day, not by too often fallible, sinful men,
 
I have continually said that the devil works continually to take you away from God, to break your relationship with God.. and if the devil cannot do it himself he will use a person, a sect, a false denomination next to try to do this too… even such sects as as the false seventh day Adventists or messianic Jews too they do now have some Biblical truths but they are grossly in error still too for they are judiazers who try to put you into bondage and also to have you worship their false religion, distortion of true Christianity.
 

Many false People like to establish false rules, false control, false influence  over you, by promoting  rules they themselves do not keep, mad up rules  to get your attention, your false subservient, but you can never keep these false rules anyway, and these rules change so often too.. and they call them applicable commandments.. forgetting the commandment thou shall worship God in spirit and in truth.. thou shall love God and love thy neighbor as thyself firstly as well..  

 

I am also still getting really rightfully tired about  these so called Biblical, spiritual experts who open their mouth and talk big about something they personally now still have never experienced, know very little about, such as what the Bible actually says, or  Spiritual gifts, speaking in tongues, prophecy, the anointing, baptism of the spirit, miracles, healings etc..   
(2Ti 3:16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

(Psa 19:7) The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

(Psa 19:11) Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

(Pro 13:13) Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

 Is 45:5 I am the Lord, and there is no one else; there is no God besides Me. I will gird {and} arm you, though you have not known Me,

(Jer 32:27 KJV)  Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

 It also now seems that unresolved problems tend to make us seek God. How to draw closer to God. You have wanted God to speak to you for a long time. You have wanted to talk to God and get answers back. This  is an opportunity for you to have a dialogue with God. God too wants to communicate with you. You might have been in church, a crusade, in your room, or outside under the stars. You felt God’s call, but you didn’t know exactly what God wanted you to do. You knew you were going to do something special, but you didn’t know what it was. Now you can also find out God’s plan for you, and others too and the literature is all free too.   It teaches you how to hear God’s voice.  God will teach you many things you need to know.  Valid spiritual tools to help you make conscious contact with God: Praise, Prayer, Humbleness, Obedience, the Bible. Get yourself ready where God speaks to you  Do see http://pbulow.tripod.com/wait.html  and http://pbulow.tripod.com/voice.html
