The Voice

I just watched a great film with Denzel Washington called “Man on Fire.”

The lynchpin kidnapper was devotedly called “The Voice”, and for good reason.

In the film, children were abducted in Mexico City for millions of dollars from wealthy families. The parents would then receive a phone call from a man whom they would never see. “The Voice” on the other line would disseminate strict instructions on how to make the ransom drop . Failure to do as “The Voice” instructed, resulted  in the summary slaying of the child.  Eventually “The Voice” was revealed as Daniel Sanchez who was executed by the Mexican police.

But “The Voice”, the only authentic one, is the voice of God.

“The Voice” is the Holy Spirit.

Matt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every  (rhema) word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

The rhema word of God is the moment by moment utterances of “The Voice”, The Holy Spirit.

Living a life which is true and lasts forever, can only comes by obedience to the utterances of “The Voice.”

Eph 6:17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the ( rhema ) word of God:

He who cannot hear “The Voice” will not have the sword of God at her disposal.

1Co 2:10  But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searcheth ( sounds out ) all things, yea, the deep things of God.

As a submarine sounds out the fathomless depths of the ocean, it is “The Voice” who sounds out the deep things of God, Himself.

If we are to live in the depths of revelation knowledge versus the shallowness of this word’s deception, we must function by “The Voice.”

Rom 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the ( rhema ) Word of God.

Life changing faith, the faith of God Himself, is transported to you by The Voice.

Man’s most essential duty is to clearly hear The Voice for himself.

There is no greater privilege or essentialism in this life, than to guide one’s life from moment to moment by The Voice.”

Eph 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may b!e able to stand against the wiles  (methodologies)  of the devil.

The only safety against this word ‘s trickery is to hear and obey “The Voice”.

The devil pumps this globe with lying methodologies from instance to instance. Our negotiation around his schemes is in obedience to “The Voice.”

Unbeknown to mankind is that whomsoever does not follow “The Voice”,  is as Mel Gibson in the cornfield scene of movie, “Signs”,  attempting to battle the secretive alien.

This is how man or woman without “The Voice” negotiates life.  Cheers!

Jesus Is The Glancing One

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)

1Ch 29:29    Prt Nsm λοιποι λογοι τους βασιλεως δαυιδ Prt προτεροι P Prt υστεροι γεγραμμενοι εισιν οι λογοις σαμουηλ τους βλεποντος P οτι λογων ναθαν τους προφητου P οτι λογων γαδ τους βλεποντος
