To become proficient in hearing God’s voice, one must understand how God speaks.
God speaks through knowledge. Many believers err in thinking that they must understand before obeying God. Fear grips them and they stay glued to their seats awaiting understanding. God does not function like that.
God speaks by knowledge, in a still, small, but clear voice. His type of knowledge is intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know knowledge.
A toddler arrives at church wearing a blue dress. We know that she has a blue dress. If we hurried out of church and signed for a course to study her dress’s color it would be terribly funny. We just know that we know that the child has a blue dress.
God speaks like this. Proficiency in this type of knowledge comes by getting up and doing what it tells us, one million times.
I’d rather err on the waters of God’s voice than to stay in fear of being wrong. Practice makes perfect. Bank tellers become experts at trapping a counterfeit by handling thousands of real bills.
The intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know voice of Gods works in connection with the eyes.
We know the toddler’s dress is blue by a simple glance of the eyes. Scrupulously, we did not study her dress, did we? It took one glance to trigger gut feeling knowledge, or the you know that you know knowledge that her dress is blue.
John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth (by a spiritual glance of the eyes of the heart) the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise (in a Homos Fashion).
The word homos is defined as alike or the same, or a carbon copy.
John five and nineteen is the key to ministry. Using the heart’s eyes, Jesus glances at what the Father does internally in Him, and copies it externally through ministry.
He does not attempt to understand. He glances, gets the gut feeling knowledge and duplicates what He sees.
1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know ( intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know knowledge) the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Jo 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know (intuitive, gut feeling, or you know that you know knowledge) all things.
It’s interesting how the Septuagint defines a seer. The Septuagint is the Greek version of the Old Testament. A seer is a prophet who minsters many a time by visions and dreams. The Septuagint as you will see, many a time calls him “ the glancing one.”
1Sa 9:9 (Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer (the glancing one): for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer (Called one in relationship to glancing.)
1Sa 9:9 εμπροσθεν οι ουκ ταδε ελεγεν εκαστος οι των πορευεσθαι επερωταν του θεον δευρο πορευθωμεν T του βλεποντα R του προφητην εκαλει προς λαος εμπροσθεν προς βλεπων –
1Sa 9:11 And as they went up the hill to the city, they found young maidens going out to draw water, and said unto them, Is the seer here? (Is the one in relationship to glancing, here?)
1Sa 9:11 Nsf αναβαινοντων της ανεστη το πολεως P αυτοι ευρισκουσιν τη κορασια εξεληλυθοτα υδρευσασθαι υδωρ P λεγουσιν αυταις ει εστιν ενταυθα προς βλεπων –
1Sa 9:18 Then Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, where the seer’s house is. (Or the one glancing)
1Sa 9:18 πως σαουλ T σαμουηλ Nui μεσον το πολεως P Nsn απαγγειλον δη ποιος προς οικος τους βλεποντος –
2Sa 15:27 The king said also unto Zadok the priest, Art not thou a seer (the one who functions by gut or intuitive knowledge)? return into the city in peace, and your two sons with you, Ahimaaz thy son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar.
2Sa 15:27 Nsn προς βασιλευς των σαδωκ των ιερει ιδετε συ επιστρεφεις Nui της πολιν οι ειρηνη P αχιμαας προς υιος τα P ιωναθαν προς υιος αβιαθαρ Prt δυο υιοι υμων μεθ υμων –
1Ch 9:22 All these which were chosen to be porters in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer (Or one in relationship to glancing) did ordain in their set office.
1Ch 9:22 παντες Prt εκλεκτοι ταις πυλαις οι ταις πυλαις διακοσιοι P δεκα δυο ουτοι οι ταις αυλαις Nsf προς καταλοχισμος Nsf τουτους εστησεν δαυιδ P σαμουηλ προς βλεπων την πιστει Nsf-
1Ch 21:9 And the LORD spake unto Gad, David’s ( the one discerning) seer, saying,
1Ch 21:9 (LXXM) P ελαλησεν Papns T γαδ ορωντα δαυιδ λεγων –
1Ch 29:29 Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer, ( the one glancing)
