SERIES: ARE YOU LISTENING

APOLOGIZING  ONCE AGAIN FOR SUCH A LATE POST.  LONG DAY, LONG DAY AND THESE POSTS ARE UNLIKE ALL THE  OTHERS.  THESE POSTS DO NOT COME FROM ME, BUT FROM MY PASTOR RICK FROM 
LIVING WATER COMMUNITY CHURCH
AND SOMETIMES, IT JUST TAKES A LOT OUT OF ME TO POST AFTER CHURCH 
BUT I'M TRYING

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO:

Hearing God
"What now?"

  • Week 1: You have to have faith and reverence to hear God.
HEBREWS 11:6
PROVERBS 9:10 fear doesn't mean 'tremble' fear.
PROVERBS 1:7 you can not talk to/reason with fools.
  • Week 2: Often times when God speaks, he speaks in a still small, inner voice and through His WORD
2 TIMOTHY 3:16 All scripture is inspired by God.  Used to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.
*We've also learned that TWO big hindrances to hearing God's voice and discerning his will is pride and ignorance.  The Lord God cares for the humble and stays away from the proud.

PSALM 138:6
MATTHEW 4:4 man needs more than bread for their lives but every word of God!
  • Week 3: We have to test the spirits
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!!!!

ACTS 2: 1-18
ACTS 2: 37-39 be baptized, be saved as everyone who calls on the Lord WILL be saved
REVELATION 19:10 Worship God.  For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus.

GOD IS STILL IN THE BUSINESS OF TALKING TO HIS PEOPLE AND PROPHECY!!!!
  • Week 4: Just because your experiencing problems or having difficulties, it doesn't mean you missed  God.
  • Week 5: Do what you know!
God does NOT expect you to do what you don't know!

JAMES 4:17 it is sin to KNOW what you ought to do and then, NOT do it.
ROMANS 2:13 just hearing the law, yet not doing it; is a BIG waste of time


FOUR THINGS WE KNOW HE'S SAYING:
  • To receive and give His love 
You can refer to John 3:16
2 JOHN 1:5-6 Live a life of love, walk in God's love.
  • To forgive
COLOSSI ANS 3:12-13 forgive others, as the Lord forgave us
MATTHEW 18:21-35
  • To pray
I TIMOTHY 2:1 pray for God's mercy and give thanks
I THESSALONIANS 5:15-18 be joyful ALWAYS and pray continually
JAMES 5:14-15 pray for the sick to be well
MATTHEW 10:8 heal the sick, raise the dead, etc.
  • To witness and make disciples
*****Be a witness to Christ AND START IN YOUR OWN HOME*****
MATTHEW 28:18-20 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All power in heaven and on Earth is given to me. So go and make followers of all people in the world.  Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you and I will be with you always, even until the end of this age".
ACTS 1:8  "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit come on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the Earth"

***AS PASTOR RICK SAID IT, TELL YOUR STORY, ITS PART OF WITNESSING AND THERE IS NO WAY TO MESS IT UP BECAUSE ITS YOUR STORY***
