DO YOU LISTEN TO GOD’S WORD?
What is God’s word?
God’s word is the undisputable truth which is written in the bible.
The bible is the Holy Spirit. When you read the word of God, you are reading the mind of God.
The word of God was written by saints who were filled with the Holy Spirit.
Everything that is in the bible is approved by God and it a basis by which the world will be judged by.
The bible is the word of God and that is why sinners hate it because it brings conviction to their hearts when they hear it. Sinners hate being convicted of their sins and that is why they reject the word of God.
That is why sinners are pierced to the heart when they hear the gospel of righteousness and they end up fighting or cursing because they know that they are hearing the truth although they love a lie.
Sinners would rather live a lie than hear the truth of the gospel.
How does God speak?
God speaks through various mediums. God is speaking to you through this article.
Anywhere the gospel of righteousness or the truth is being spoken out, God is speaking. Jesus is the truth, and anywhere the truth is spoken out Jesus is involved.
God speaks to us through the bible, the internet, gospel books, gospel tracts, gospel music, evangelists, prophets and all his children.
Do not wait for God to speak to you one on one. When you hear the truth through any medium approves by God, God has spoken to you.
That is why you need to take rebukes from men of God seriously because God uses these people to bring us to repentance.
Jesus told his disciples if they have seen Him, they have seen the father also. When you hear the word of God being preached by saints, you are hearing directly from God.
Joh 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
When you also see things of the devil such as pornography, worldly music, worldly advertisement, boutiques where attires of harlots are sold you are seeing the devil on duty and you need not to ask where Satan or God is because Jesus and Satan are right in our midst.
Do you listen to God’s word?
The big question is whether you listen to God’s word or not. Hearing is different from listening.
A lot of people are good at hearing God’s word but they fail to listen.
The word of God tells us that the preaching of the cross of Christ is foolishness to those who are perishing but to those who are being saved it is the power of God.
1Co 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
A lot of people are hearers but not doers of the word of God. Do not be a hearer but a doer of the word of God, for only doers of the word of God will be justified.
The modern day Christians love to hear God’s word but they do not listen to the very same message.
That is why people have been going to church for a long time and they are not changing into perfection but they waxing gross from being lukewarm Christian into blatant reprobates.
That is why you find women in the church singing for God and looking like whores, this is because they do not listen nor obey the word of God but they are contentious and have devised their own false doctrines which are leading them in the broad way that leads to destruction.
The sheep of God listen to God’s word.
Jesus said His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him and He gives them eternal life and they shall in no wise perish.
Joh 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Joh 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
Joh 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
Joh 10:30 I and my Father are one.
Anyone that is of God will hear the truth. Even if children of God have erred from the way of truth, if they come to the knowledge of truth they will repent and come back to Jesus.
The sheep of God do not contend or argue when they hear the truth, they quickly turn away from the error of their way because they love God and their love towards God is manifested by their obedience to God.
Children of the wicked will never listen to God’s word. The children of the devil cannot listen to God’s word. Remember the case of the Pharisees and Jesus.
Even though they were told by the guards that Jesus had resurrected from the dead, they hid their eyes and ears from the truth and bribed the guards and continued to persecute the apostles of Jesus.
The Pharisees continued to deny the truth till their death. The children of the wicked operate in the same way. Even though you present them with the truth as simple as A, B, C they will reject the truth and embrace lies.
There is nothing that you can do or say to bring them to repentance. They are children of the wicked one and they will always listen to their father the devil.
Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Joh 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Joh 8:46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
Joh 8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
If you are an evangelist or a Christian speak out the word of God and do not contend with the wicked because it will yield no good.
Children of the wicked will die in that state. There is nothing that you can do or say to bring them to repentance.
Where do you belong?
Judge yourself and examine your character whether you are a child of God or you are a child of the wicked one.
How do you behave when you hear the truth or when your brother or sister rebukes you of your sins? Do you run away from them or dissociate from them.
If you are a child of God you will listen to rebukes and be yet wiser. For the word of God tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge but fools despise wisdom and instructions.
Do you despise corrections? Examine your character and know which sheepfold you belong to. This is the criteria you can use to discern the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats.
Those that listen to God’s word belong to Jesus, on the contrary, those that contend with the truth are not of God and neither do they know Him.
