Most of us are praying intensely right now for evil and corruption to be exposed.
However, as that prayer is being answered, I watch with concern the responses from people as things ARE being exposed that are hard to fathom. The reaction by some, unwilling to accept what is coming to light, is to attack, name-call, and declare it “conspiracy theories.” When we do that, aren’t we just sticking our heads in the sand?
As more and more information comes to light regarding Bill Gates and the ID2020 digital identity program, proposed mandatory vaccines and immunity cards, and how things just don’t add up, I have watched as people explode in rage.
We need to remember anger is an indicator.
The words I hear in my spirit almost daily is the reminder that we need to have “eyes to see and ears to hear.”
That’s not easy to do in this hour as conflicting reports pop up constantly around us. How can we know the truth? How can we know what is real and what to believe?
We have to go to the Source. The Holy Spirit is the revealer of Truth.
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come” (Jn 16:13).
In the past, we have often looked to our pastors for a word. Or perhaps to a close friend, or the news media to find out truth. But the Lord has always invited us to hear directly from Him. It is time we dig down with the Holy Spirit to receive what is Truth straight from the Source. He tells us He will give us wisdom and tell us what the Father is speaking. So it makes sense that we should be spending more time than ever sitting with Him to hear what He has to say rather than any news broadcast, doesn’t it?
Will we make mistakes? Yes perhaps. But this is an essential component in this hour for each of us to grow in our ability to hear His Voice and discern what He is saying and what is truth. Because He will tell us.
I believe that we are coming into a season in which we will see even more corruption exposed that has been ruling our nation. If we see people in panic and enraged now, what will be the response then?
Many will be unable to admit that we have been duped. As a result, some will double down to defend the lies as they are exposed.
May we not be those people. We MUST open our eyes and see what has been happening and continue to stand for righteousness.
How do we hear God’s voice?
- He speaks through His Word. So we need to be reading the Bible now more than ever to hear what He is saying.
- He speaks to our hearts. The Holy Spirit will speak to us what is going on and confirm His Word to us. But we need to remember that it will always line up with Scripture. A Word He speaks to our heart will not contradict Scripture.
- By recognizing His ways. This answer is rooted in knowing the Bible. We can look at what God has done in the past and know that He is always consistent with Himself. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He never changes.
Ps 103:7 says, “He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel.”
May we be a people that know His ways and know Him intimately rather than people who only recognize His acts. It is time to dig down in our relationship with Him.
We want to hear from you. How do you hear from the Lord? What are you hearing? Share by leaving a comment.
