2 Peter 1:3 – According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Do you have ears to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the church? You should, for Father has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness. That includes ears to hear. The next question that arises is this; do you know how to use them correctly to assure that what you are hearing is indeed the voice of the Spirit as He speaks to the church? In this hour, dear reader, the answer to that question is absolutely critical to your ability to walk and live this life in victory.
We are surrounded by more voices of spiritual influence at one time than ever before in history. They come at us from every point of the conference, from every plane of existence, from all around us, not just circumferentially, but spherically, too. They come at us from every media stream, every estate of our life, every place in which we draw breath, and that includes friends and family. They come as ideas, belief systems, individuals, groups, institutions, and even our churches. The air waves about us are absolutely embalmed with them. And what is so dangerous about most of those voices is that they are dangerous. There is only ONE true source of truth, and that is from the Word of God made flesh. Anything, and I truly mean ANYTHING that is counter to the Word of God is dangerous, and must be filtered through the capturing element of the Word of God rightly divided.
There are voices that intend to deliberately hurt you. There are voices with good intentions, but with the foundation of the truly divided Word of God, are very dangerous to you. But, thank God there are voices that are properly tied to the heart of God, speaking truth, shedding forth light, and opening doors through which the glory of God can cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. These are the voices we most need to hear, the voices for which our hearts cry. It is to that end that I write this today. We have ears. Let us believe the Lord that our ears are hearing ears, ears that hear and recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd. May we be able to cry out to Father, we have ears to hear what Holy Spirit is saying to the church. We will give our ears, not to the clamoring self-serving, not to the clanging strife-sowers, not to the fear-mongering victim-minded, and not to those out to obviously destroy the Lord, His true influence, the body of Christ, and His kingdom; BUT WE GIVE OUR EARS TO YOU, O LORD, THAT WE MIGHT CLEARLY HEAR THAT WHICH YOU DESIRE US TO DO. AND WE WILL OBEY.
