“Many of you are wondering, does God really speak so detailed and so plain in everyday language to human beings?
I hear you thinking, how does a person know if it’s them just thinking, or actually My Holy Spirit talking.
You are asking these questions because your status will not allow an intimate communication between you and Me to exist at this juncture in your spiritual walk.
I AM willing to talk to you about any subject you wish, if you have made Me your best friend.
However, it’s much easier to be one of My servants, than to be My friend. ‘You can only be My friend if you keep on doing everything I command you to do. 15 When you sell out to Me, I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, because in a servant position I do not talk over details of what I am doing or (working out).
But if I am truly first in your life, you move from My servant to My friends, and I make known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him and He wants to answer all your questions,” John 15:14-15.
I know you think it sounds very one sided to be My friend, and you are right, but you are talking about a friendship with the creator of a billion galaxies. You are talking about being one on one with eternal beings that move at the speed of thought and have no limits or age.
This is not an ordinary friendship, but it’s imperfection communicating with perfection. Make no mistake about this, it is a mortal befriending the immortal. Those who reach the status of friendship with Me, have paid a great price to arrive at that state, but I paid the ultimate price first because My Father wanted to have human friends He could communicate with, 1 John 4:19.
As a friend you can ask Me anything and My Father will answer, John 16:23. Many choose to write down our intimate conversations and answers for future reference, commonly known as journaling, and some choose to bless others with their answers and create blogs. These intimate conversations that are shared with others, should not be considered prophecy, but rather like reading someone else’s mail with permission.
My conversations with My friends are only in part because ‘I have so many things to say to each of My friends, but they may not be able to bear them yet,’ John 16:12. The Kingdom culture shock is too great for most believers to handle, especially in the west.
For example: materialistic believers are saying, (all doesn’t really mean all) “He don’t really mean give all” Luke 14:33. But My Friends know that’s exactly what I mean and they have no problem with it. That’s why without knowing it, they have reached the friend status. Abraham’s faith was so great, he sacrificed everything and everyone called him the Friend of God, James 2:23.
It is My desire that everyone would move from servant to friend status, but most will never pay the price. Thus they will always question how the God of all creation could speak as friend with friend with a mere mortal human being.
I and My Father are one and we love everyone and We have paid the price that allows for open conversation between the Creator and His creation. How much of that intimate conversation takes place, now depends on what His creation is willing to pay.
Those that have pay the obedience price and reach the friend status, are free to share our conversations with others, but it’s should not be considered complete or entire or necessarily prophecy by the reader.
It is shared with the hopes it will inspire other friends of Mine, to share their portions making the pit hire more complete and also create a hunger in My servants to pay the price and move to a friend status.
Believers who are always wanting someone to give them a word are servants. Simply put My servants go to My Friends to ask what I AM saying about them. If you are a servant make sure the one you are asking is really My Friend and not a false prophet.
To all My servants; may I suggest you lay down you life and become one of My friends. Martha had a servants heart, Mary wanted to be My friend.”
