God is truly speaking!
But are we truly listening?
While I was searching online for some information on a particular topic, I found an interesting article on the subject written by a Christian author, so I wanted to read it. However, when I retrieved the article, it was 18 pages long! But nevertheless, there was information that Ii wanted to read, so I planned on rushing right through to read only certain parts of it. The article was such a great read and although it flowed with much wisdom and insight, I still wanted to continue to skim through to read only the parts that interested me. Although I have to admit, that reading the entire article would have allowed me to gain the fullness of what I was reading. I still did not want to read the entire article. Then the Lord begin to speak to me. The Lord says…
“I have given you my written word for your spiritual growth in me and as a guide and directions for righteous living. Likewise I am sending you true prophets who are speaking for me My “rhema” word this due season. You must always have knowledge and understanding of the written word to discern and test the “rhema” words spoken through the prophets. I will and I am speaking to you through both they are co-joined and connected, but some will not take the time to read and to gain the fullness of either of them. They will not take the time to fully study the written Word nor to listen to the “rhema” word that I am speaking through the true “prophets.” Many will not take time to read what I am speaking, because it doesn’t “tickle” their ears. But I have a remnant of faithful ones who seek me and study and receive my word.”
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness…” 2 Timothy 3:16.
“Many times I have sent My “rhema” prophetic words through My true Prophets to speak for the future, and the present times and seasons; but yet, there are some that will say to themselves or feel as though what the Prophets are writing is too long or to lengthy for them to take the time to read the messages and to listen to what I am saying! Just as I breathed My Word which I spoke through the Prophets of old, it is the same way that I breathe My word through the Prophets today. I speak to them through dreams and visions, and other ways that give revelations and insight as it relates to what is transpiring in the spiritual world as well as the natural world.”
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” Hebrews 4:12.
“When the Prophets release my word on exhortation and blessings, they hear Me! But when the Prophets release my words of instructions, warning, correction, rebuke, or any other message that I send which do nothing to excite the flesh, they ignore Me! Regardless of what some decree and declare, I send words of exhortations and blessings to My true and faithful children. And I send words of judgement to the wicked and disobedient children. My word is quick, sharp, and balanced! It is not one-sided! It cuts both sides and it will not return to Me void!”
“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” Amos 3: 7.
“The Prophets are My friends, and I do nothing unless I first reveal it through them. The reason why My written Holy Word is compiled of many writings from my Prophets and servants is because when I spoke to them, they were inspired by My Holy Spirit to write it down to fully express from My heart, exactly what I am speaking. The same is with today’s Prophets. They write down the visions and dreams to relate to you so that My will, purpose, and plans will be made known. And so that you can be prepared and have knowledge and understanding of any instructions that I may send. Many are running to and fro looking for Me to shout and scream to them, but I am already speaking through My still small voice. I will speak to you both through My written Holy Word as well as through My “rhema” word by the true Prophets for a word in due season. Even though it’s not what you want to hear or receive at all times.
Surely I am truly speaking. But are you truly listening?”
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” Isaiah 55:11.
“And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice” 1 Kings 19:12.
“Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching” 1 Timothy 4:13.
