DESCRIPTION OF THIS TEACHING

There are several different reasons WHY you should want to listen to the Holy Spirit. However, the MAIN reason is that the LORD wants to give you a message for direction, protection or enablement. And, sometimes―if not many times―the message will be for someone else.

Some people may NOT be able to listen to―or discern―the voice of the Spirit. Or, they may NOT want to listen to the voice of the Spirit due to rebellion or living in sin. Therefore, the LORD may send you a message via His Spirit to relay to the other person.

In my experience the message is usually given for specific knowledge in an area where help or advice is needed: in my life or in the lives of others.

The principles of God are timeless and transfer … and if we are students of God’s Word and have the knowledge of Proverbs we are able to navigate the problems and challenges of life. But when situations arise that are not clearly and specifically defined―as in ministry strategy or spiritual warfare or dream interpretation―then we need a “specific” word from the LORD.

Many people read the Holy Bible, but they are NOT listening to the Holy Spirit. God wants us to apply His Word to our lives. This is where listening to the Spirit brings success, victory and accurate direction.

LISTENING TO THE SPIRIT
DIRECTION AND HELP
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

INTRODUCTION

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth:
for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak:
and he will show you things to come.”
Jesus: John 16:13

One of the Holy Spirit’s assignments is to glorify Christ. When you receive direction, help and enablement, Christ is glorified in your victorious life and testimony thereof: by your word and your lifestyle. The Holy Spirit guides you into ALL truth; spiritual, business, family, prophetic, physical, travel and relational truth.

Many people read the Holy Bible, but they are NOT listening to the Holy Spirit. God wants us to apply His Word to our lives. This is where listening to the Spirit brings success, victory and accurate direction.

As you become attuned―skilled―in listening to the Spirit, you will begin to notice that sometimes shortly after you receive a message you will experience a confirmation. For example, [I recently had this happen] if you receive a message about advice you would give a person, that person may contact you not long after and ask you for advice concerning the same (not knowing that you have already heard from God concerning them or their situation).

EXAMPLES

Sometimes listening to the Holy Spirit will be synonymous with the gift of prophecy. For example, one time after a large seminar I was conducting in Chicago a lady came up to me and said, “I have two wombs …”

I had already finished praying with people and I was really wanting to go to the place where I was to stay and go to bed. When the lady said, “I have two wombs …” my first thought was, “I must have preached past the anointing.” (I wanted to be anywhere but there.) What the lady said in full was this, “I have two wombs. If I conceive in the one womb the life will live, but if I conceive in the other (womb) the life will die. Do you have a word for me?”

Instantly―without thinking about it―I said to her, “You will have a son. He will live, and his name will be Samuel.”

When I was in Chicago about a year later I met little Samuel.

In similar manner, listening to the Spirit may sometimes by synonymous with the Word of Knowledge. For sure―if you operate in the gifts of the Spirit like Prophecy and the Word of Knowledge―you definitely need to be listening to the Holy Spirit. Study my book, How to Receive God’s Power with Gifts of the Spirit.

But there are times that God wants to give you a message for yourself and it may be just for reflection, or to meditate thereon. He may want you to think about what you would do in a certain situation that may be coming up in the future and you do NOT know about it yet―or, the complete details have not dovetailed together yet―and may not for quite some time.

PURPOSE OF LISTENING

You have to realize that God is for you. As in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the motive for listening to the Spirit should be to edify, improve, deliver, make whole or provide intelligence. Thank God, He did not leave us here without the tools and weapons we need to operate in power and victory … and especially as we progress into the End Times.

Realize this: we are at the entrance to the End Times. If the Early Church―or Messianic Synagogue―needed the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the five fold ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher as laid out in Ephesians 4:11, how much more do we need them today? And, how much more will the followers of Messiah Jesus need them as we progress further along into the End Times.

PREREQUISITES TO LISTENING

We need to start our day with the Word of God. We need to be students of the Word of God. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17) So the Word of God is the channel through which the activities of the Holy Spirit operate. When we have the Word of God in us―and operate based upon the Word of God―we hear (from God … from His Spirit). And when we hear from God, faith rises and MIRACLES happen.

But remember also, this is all predicated upon love. “Faith works by love.” (Galatians 5:6)

The Word of God is the channel though which faith flows, and love is the activator which triggers faith.

HOW WILL YOU KNOW

If you are living for God, then give God the benefit of the doubt. I have seen many MIRACLES since I learned to give God the benefit of the doubt. If you’re NOT sure the message is from God, then check to make sure it does NOT conflict with Scripture. If it does NOT conflict with Scripture, then ask God for a confirmation that is clear and concise. NOTE: If you are “seasoned” in listening to the Holy Spirit then you probably won’t require a confirmation.

We should NOT be surprised that the LORD works this way in addition to His many other modes of communication. We read of Him doing this throughout Bible in both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Brit Chadashah (New Testament). God has NOT changed. “For I am the LORD; I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6)

It’s people who have not changed that corrupt His program. People who have never seen healing will tell you that God does not heal. People who have never seen miracles will tell you that MIRACLES do not happen anymore. People who do NOT believe in Apostles or Prophets operating today will tell you that those offices ceased after the Early Messianic Synagogue. However, to say that would be to prove ignorance―or, folly―as that would mean that the Scripture in Ephesian 4:11 has been rescinded: And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers.” No more pastors, teachers and evangelists either!

GOD WANTS TO COMMUNICATE

Also, realize that the LORD wants to communicate with people more than we do. And, He does NOT want his messages of direction and help to be cryptic or hard to understand. It amazes me how many people have never read the Holy Bible completely. Here’s the greatest communication to mankind and they treat it like a magazine. My friend, get the Word inside you and YOU will begin to hear God. Start your day with it and end your day with it. I made a rule for my life years ago: “No Bible … no breakfast.”

The day is coming when the world government and the world religious system will destroy Bibles … including YOURS if you’re still here. Then YOU will need to listen to the Spirit … and it may be too late.

The Holy Spirit will guide you into ALL truth as you listen to Him.

Here are THREE resources to help you: “New Testament Bible Studies”“Prophecy, Transition & Miracles … and “How To Receive God’s Power with Gifts of the Spirit.”

DESCRIPTION OF THIS TEACHING

How many people who pray and invite Messiah Jesus into their lives really continue on with Him … or, continue in His Word? Rabbi Yeshua (Jesus) very plainly said that those who continue in His Word are truly His disciples (talmidim). The purpose of this podcast teaching is to provide a model for the works … AND … the workers of Messiah Jesus.

Personal examples and experiences will be providedas well as resources to help YOUthe reader and listenerbe ALL God wants you to be.

DISCIPLESHIP: THE MODEL
MIRACLES OR RELIGION
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

JESUS IS YOUR ROLE MODEL

Two-thirds of Jesus’ ministry was concerned withor directed athealing.

“And it came to pass also on another Sabbath, that He entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.

And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on Sabbath; that they might find an accusation against him.

But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, ‘Rise up, and stand forth in the midst.’ And he arose and stood forth.

Then said Jesus unto the religious leaders, ‘I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on Sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?’

And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, ‘Stretch forth your hand.’ And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

And the religious leaders were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.”  (Brit Chadashah: Luke 6:6-11)

Jesus could well have asked them, “Why are you so angry with me?” Why do you think the religious leaders were angry with Jesus? Here may be some reasons:

They were jealous of Him. (They had NO power … only control of people.)
He was drawing away their followers.
He was shining the light on their superficiality.

JESUS STILL WORKS TODAY

Several times in the past I have been invited to speak in public high schools in Southern California USA. Even though public prayer and Bible reading were banned years ago, the drug problem was so bad in these schools that they knew Jesus could help them. In every public high school where I spoke, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit operated through me. In EVERY high school the LORD would show me a student (that I did NOT know) and a situation in their body. Then, I would call them forward and share with them what the LORD had told me about them. I would pray for them … and EVERY time they would be instantly healed.

One time a denominational pastor called me on the phone after I had been on a campus where the LORD had healed and saved a girl that previously had been the biggest “bad-mouth” against Jesus on that campus. He said, “We have worked for years on that campus trying to gain a foothold … and you come in and cause “commotion.” I asked him politely, “If you mean by ‘commotion’ that students were praying to receive Christ after a girl was healed and saved, then I guess I am guilty.”

It wasn’t one week later when I received another invitation to come to a High School in Orange County to speak. Right before I left to drive to the school I called that denominational pastor and told him, “I received another invitation to speak at a public high school a few days ago. I am just leaving to go there, and I wanted to ask you if it is OK to heal on the Sabbath?!” Then I hung up. He never bothered me again.

JESUS HAS PRECEPTS

Today we see many large churches. Does this mean the sheep are being fed, or does it mean they are being fed but NOT nutritious food. Lots of restaurants cater to large crowds but does that mean the food is nutritious? Large churches (mega churches) are NOT necessarily a sign of productive ministry in the eyes of the LORD.

To be a productive church the shepherd leader must attempt to form and lead a POWER church: a real New Testament church. Programs and cell groups mean nothing if people are not being instructed in the ministry precepts of Jesus. WHAT are those precepts? Let’s look at what Jesus instructed His followers to do:

1. Preach and teach;
2. Heal the sick; and,
3. Cast out demons.

Also, let’s look at the Great Commission:” … teaching them to observe ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you …” (Matthew 28:20) Pastors that do NOT minister healing and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit are cheating their flock out of 67 percent of the ministry of Jesus. They are omitting 2 out of 3 parts of Jesus’ ministry. They preach and teach but they are NOT serving healing or deliverance―#2 and #3 shown aboveto their people. This is corruption. It is stealing … it is cheating God’s people AND the people who could be saved by witnessing the healing and miracle power of God.

Why do they do this? Usually because they do NOT believe in healing. Or, they will tell you, “I believe Jesus can heal,” or, “We have had people healed.” However, the TRUTH may be that they do NOT know HOW to minister healing so they dismiss it. That is, they either do NOT believe Jesus will heal, or they do NOT have the faith to pray or believe for healing. The same applies to MIRACLES … real miracles! The truth is: to minister healing and deliverance they need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Healing ministry should be a part of all church worship services, or at least one service a week designated for healing. But what about people who are sick, diseased, bound, or afflicted who come to ANY service in need of healing, deliverance, or prayer? The same applies to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and instruction concerning it.

CONTINUE IN HIS WORD

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him,
‘If you
continue in my word, then you are my disciples indeed.’”
‒ John 8:31

I recently told a man who is struggling in his walk with the LORD, “Do me a favor: Don’t get religious … just follow Jesus!” The only Bible instruction he is receiving is one time a week at the church he attends where he is told from the pulpit to write in three (3) words in an outline from the pastor’s sermon. I explained to him that he needs to study―and learn―the Holy Bible if he wants to grow strong … for himself and for the LORD.

Now … what are your ministry gifts (for others) from the LORD? Are you a writer? A pastor? A prophet? A film editor? And … you may have a combination of gifts with which the LORD has enabled you. However, whatever your gifting(s) you are to have as a primary goal the making of disciples.

By God’s grace, I have been involved developing disciples for over 50 years. It is a blessing to SEE what the LORD accomplishes through people who are yielded to and love Him. From ALL backgrounds of society and culture and education (or, lack of it) I have seen God do amazing things. This is what He promised: “Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believes on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12)

MAKE DISCIPLES FOR JESUS

However, I have never known a person to be a greatly used disciple that was NOT a student of the Holy Bible and that was NOT reading God’s Word daily. We never get too old―or too experienced―that we do NOT need to spend time in God’s Word every day.

When we first started the Free Bible Studies by Mail, we kept a record of progress of each student. You could visually see in a file box of 3 x 5 index cards the commitment of students (the diligence of disciples). More completed the Intro Lesson, and progressively less for each lesson completed. But … praise God for those who were diligent and completed the whole course. One Catholic Nun from New York completed the whole course and flew to visit me in California. She later wrote me that she was training a group of 1,500 people about Jesus, about the Holy Spirit and about how to operate in the gifts of the Spirit.

Another young man I had the privilege of “pouring into” personally prayed with over 170,000 people to receive Christ … PLUS trained many others to do personal evangelism. (See link at bottom for his Anointed Soul Winning Plan.) Remember, AFTER people know the LORD, they need to GROW in the LORD. This is WHAT Jesus commanded us to do: make disciples.

________________________________

CHALLENGE

My challenge to you is this:
Pray that the LORD leads you to people who WANT to be discipled …
those who WANT to learn God’s Word … and GROW and SERVE the LORD.

________________________________

Almost every day I am discipling people. These are in addition to those I have ordained into the ministry … and in addition to the various ministries the LORD has assigned me. We have so many tools available to us: texting, social media, blogs and podcasts. Remember, when this life is over it will be too late. Let’s impact the world while we’re here.
