He Who Belongs to God Hears What God Says

The Lord Is With Us

Authentic ministers of God’s word are not taught it by man; we receive it by revelation from God, learning it directly by His Spirit, which is one with ours by faith in Christ (see Gal. 1:11-12; John 16:12-15; 1 Cor. 2:10-16, 6:17; 1 John 2:20, 27). God brings revelation and teaches us most often as we meditate on His word. Jesus of Nazareth heard from God this way also (see Luke 4:16-21, perhaps in a new light). Recall that He told the Jews My teaching is not my own. It comes from him who sent me. (John 7:16). He described himself as … a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. He then told them, He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear from God is that you do not belong to God. (8:40, 47).

Mere “head knowledge” of…

    Thanks Scarlett and Deanna. Good word. Scarlett, I answered your second reply this morning and attempted to post both, but the WordPress platform refuses to post either. Please see my comments for message. Thanks.

  2. I am humbled that you reblogged this – thank you! (And humbling is always good, regardless of what our “old self” feels about it! I believe Jeremiah 1:10 reveals the humbling-to-exaltation ratio is 2:1…)

    The Bible says to turn away from those who have only a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof. If God be God, and He is, He is a supernatural being. Mankind, even those who name the name of Christ, continually attempt to deny His Power, attempting to make Him into a god of their own image, like unto themselves….without power. Please take the time to read all of this, It’s very important that we do not fit into this category,

    2 Timothy 3King James Version (KJV)

    3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

    2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

    3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

    4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

    7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

    9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.

    10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

    11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

    12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

    13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

    14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

    15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

    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, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
    King James Version (KJV)

    • Amen. Let us deny self, pick up our cross, and follow Jesus; let us press on to apprehend that for which Christ Jesus has apprehended us! [I am SLOWLY learning over a course of YEARS to discern what is my old (already crucified!) self and to put it off; to KNOW my new (true!) self in Christ and put it on…]
