How do you know God is talking to you? I am just wondering how we all hear from God,
God doesn't have a standard way of speaking to his people. he speaks to his people in different ways: through the pastor, Holly spirit, His word, Visions, Dreams, person and many other ways. for as long as you have close relationship with him you can be able to recognise his voice (John 10:3 ).
1After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
14And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks
2And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
how do you know that you are sick?
how do you know that you are hungry?
because you can feel it.
you that God is speaking when you find an answer the your questions or challenge at that point in time.
you trying to draw up a business plan and you dont have a business line in mind at the particular moment, then suddenly an idea springs up or you just suddenly lost interest in going into any business venture, but decided to either work under someone or go back to skoll. i can confidently tell you that God gave that idea because it the best for you at that time. then you can say, he told you what to do.
I know a friend that is seriously in love with a girl(He told me so) but he has personal esteem problems and couldnt approach her, he went to the pastor and told him that god told him that the girl will be his future wife, imagine this happened just two days ago. i no fit shout. Niaja kai. The country is completely dead because of god and religion. why are people just deluding them selves? how long can we continue moving down this dangerous path?
There is this freaky poo that goes on in most churches today.
During prayers or worship or preaching sessions, Some dude/dudette (mostly women), will jump out of their seats, start spinning around, talking gibberish (tongues), then come to rest on the floor and start talking;
"Thus saith the lord"
After spilling their guts out, everybody will start cowering in fear that God has just spoken through that person.
Now I ask u, What is the difference between that person and an insane man/woman on the road??
Answer; One is in church, the other is on the street.
I call it madness. A jobless man once told me, that god told him to start a church in Nigeria.
I asked him the same question: how do you know it is god speaking with you and he said "I just know."
I was thinking god should be able to find you a job for him to tell you all these things.
I call it madness. If he found a job like every other sensible person, he won't be speaking jagbajantis.
He also said god told him to start a conference for christians, worship center, publishing company and write books like oyedepo.
