If God is really your friend, then you want to listen to Him. We need to hear what God really says, and not what we think He says. I can’t overemphasize how important it is to speak with one unified voice from God, who is One. This is a very critical time, not only for our country but for the entire world that needs explicit direction from God. After watching this video on my secure website, produced specially to help God’s children to stand firm, please share it with others.

This is a very critical time, not only for our country but for the entire world that needs explicit direction from God. If you tell me that you have a lot of friends on this earth, then I will ask you, “Do you enjoy listening to your friends?” Do you really want to hear what they say, or are you more interested in just hearing your own voice? True friends listen to one another. My heart aches to hear the voice of my wife, who can no longer speak because she has advanced Alzheimer’s. My ears also ache to hear the still small voice of God. I have learned a lot about listening over the years and even taught classes on how to listen in the business world and also as a Christian counselor. The first thing I noticed about most people, is that they don’t want to listen unless it’s listening to themselves. They love to hear the sound of their own voice or even the sound of their thoughts. I would say that people like this don’t have very many true friends; most of their friends are in name only. Unfortunately, this also applies to calling God your friend, when you don’t take time to listen. Continue reading A Critical Time for Getting Direction from God→
Without knowledge of the Holy Spirit, it will be impossible to follow Him. So, our first task is to make sure that we know Him, not in just a casual way, but to know Him intimately. Then we can learn together how to listen to the voice of the indwelling Spirit, which will eventually open the door allowing us to follow the Holy Spirit.

Without knowledge of the Holy Spirit, it will be impossible to follow Him. So, our first task is to make sure that we know Him, not in just a casual way, but to know Him intimately. When we come to Christ asking Him to save us from our sins and make us into a new creation, then He marks us with the seal of the Holy Spirit through faith and then fulfills His promise by giving us the Comforter to dwell with us as long as we are in these bodies (See John 14:26). Although the Holy Spirit or Comforter is with us from the very moment of our conversion, He has limited access until we completely die to self. This is the first step in following the Spirit. So, how do we die to self, has been an often-misinterpreted topic from the beginning. Perhaps the easiest way to see our self is to take a hard look at our desires, our wants, our way, and our will. Another way to look at our self is to compare it with the rights, wants, desires, and the will of a slave. Now you’re starting to get the picture. To die to self, freely surrenders your will, your desires, your wants, and your rights to the living God through the indwelling Spirit. Anyone can make this confession of faith, but following through on it, will take a lot more work. Let’s proceed. Continue reading How to Follow the Holy Spirit→
