How to Hear the voice of the Holy Spirit 2


Word For Today: Tuesday, April 4 Let Him Hear What The Spirit Says ...
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
John 10:27 KJV
Loved one in Christ Jesus, it’s a great pleasure writing to you. This is episode two of my teachings on hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit. Connect with my teachings on youtube for a more profound revelation.

In episode one, I explained that to activate the voice of the Holy Spirit in your spirit, soul, and body, you must be born again. In this article, I will share with you the concept of the spirit, soul, and body. Get my book, “How to Walk and Live in the Spirit,” for a more profound revelation.

If you understand the concept of the human spirit, soul, and body, you will not find it difficult to connect with God’s voice. First, our spirit (human spirit) differs from the Holy Spirit (See Romans 8:16). When God breathed into the nostrils of the lifeless body and soul of Adam, his soul came to life (See Genesis 1:26; 2:7).

God is a Spirit. He speaks to our spirit because the Holy Spirit created our spirit. Jesus Christ created our body, and the Heavenly Father created our soul (Meditate on Genesis 2:7. Our spirit transfers the information to our soul. If you don’t renew your soul in God’s Word, he can reject and misinterpret the voice of the Holy Spirit. 

This is one reason you must renew your soul with God’s Word (Meditate on 1 Peter 2:2). When you renew your soul and rekindle your spirit with God’s Word, it is easy to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit. Get my books, “How to Train the Human spirit” and How to Grow in the Realms of the Spirit” for a more profound revelation.

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.
Proverbs 20:27 KJV

Our spirit is the candle of the Lord. God searches our soul (conscience, intellect, emotions, desires and will power) through our spirit. Without our spirit, the Holy Spirit cannot assess our soul. For example, without light, we cannot see with our eyes. Although we have other senses that can help us see and understand. The eye is the only organ of the body that can see clearly. The light opens the portal for us to see irrespective of the barriers. 

The sun allows us to see in the day. The moon and some electric lights allow us to see in the night. Without light, we cannot see with our eyes. The same principle applies to our spirit. Without our spirit, the Holy Spirit cannot analyze our soul (conscience, emotions, desires, will power and intellect).

God thought whatever He created was good, not knowing that human beings had wickedness in their heart. Note, God knows everything (omniscient), but He decided not to know what was in the heart of humankind. God knew Lucifer would oppose him, but He chose not to know.

This is one reason God regretted of creating human beings when they became wicked in the time of Noah (See Genesis 6:1-7). God decided to destroy the race of humankind, but He found grace in the heart of Noah. God did not know what was in our heart until He breathed His Spirit in us. The breath (Holy Spirit) of God created our spirit and resurrected our soul.

The breath of God gave life to our soul. The breath of God opens the portal for the Trinity to analyze our soul. When God was creating Adam and Eve, He never thought we could be that wicked because He did not know what was hidden our soul. When God breathed life into us, He became conscious of us. He understood our thoughts.

Get my book for a more profound revelation. I will share with you three levels the Holy Spirit reveals Himself unto us. The Holy Spirit can reveal Himself unto us through revelation. Revelation is a divine secret God opens unto our spirit as we fellowship with Him. God can reveal mysteries to us when drawing closer to Him. God can reveal secrets to us through His Word.

The Holy Spirit can reveal Himself to us through illumination. He brings to light the secrets of the Spiritual world. He explains into detail what the carnal mind cannot reveal. God can use His angels to reveal secrets unto us. The Holy Spirit can reveal Himself unto us through the inspirational atmosphere, teachings, and videos. He motivates and sharpens us to become stronger by building us with profound truths and wisdom.

I will share with you five keys that hinder us not hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Knowing the things that limit you not to hear God’s voice will help you repent and position yourself in God’s path.


1.  Sin

Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
Isaiah 59:1-3 KJV

Sin creates a limitation between God and us. One reason you cannot connect with the voice of God is because of sin. Consistently sinning establishes a barrier between you and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit cannot live in a sinful jurisdiction. He cannot abide in a sinful vessel. 

If you want to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit, depart from sin because sin will corrupt your conscience and make us irresponsive to the voice of God. Get my book “Spiritual Keys for Life” for a more profound revelation on sin.


 2. Carnality

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians 2:14 KJV
If you allow the desires of the flesh (See Galatians 5:19-21) to dominate you, you suppress the voice of the Holy Spirit. If you walk in the Spirit, you will not fulfil the desires of the flesh. Overeating and excessive ungodly activities can desensitize your spiritual senses. We know that every human being has five senses (smell, touch, feel, see and taste). These senses (nose, ears, mouth, hands and tongue) help us connect with the world.

Our spirit also has senses (discernment, faith, love, perception, vision, trance, revelation, power, and wisdom). These spiritual senses help us connect with the spiritual world. If you always feed your flesh, it will dominate the desires of the Spirit.

When your flesh dominates your spiritual senses, it is difficult to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. The same applies to our spirit. If you always feed your spirit with the Word, your spirit will dominate the desire of the flesh and the soul. Get my series of books for more profound revelation. 
These books will transform your soul, rekindle your spirit, and help you connect with the Holy Spirit.


3. No Prayer and fasting life.
Prayer and Fasting Guide
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Matthew 26:41 KJV

Prayer is one of the greatest weapons of every believer. Our spirit always desires to pray, but the desires of our flesh limit us. Our flesh can become our enemy if we don’t discipline it. The best way to discipline the flesh is to fast (Meditate on 1 Corinthians 9:27).

If you don’t build fasting and prayer life, your spirit will be inactive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Prayerless Christians are powerless people in the Spirit. If you don’t build a prayer life, you will become a legalistic, carnal, soulish and religious Christian. Read my article "Types of Christians" for a more profound revelation.

The enemy will trample on you if you don’t build a consistent prayer life. A prayerless Christian is a potential prey for the devil. If you don’t pray, the evil spirits will always attack your spiritual senses and make you irresponsive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Get my series of books on the enemies for a more profound revelation.

There are some evil spirits they will never submit until you fast. Failure to fast will make your spiritual antenna irresponsive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. When this happens, you will not discern the voice of the Holy Spirit.



4. Bitterness
The Slow Burn of Bitterness
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Ephesians 4:26 KJV

Bitterness is a great weapon of the enemy. Unforgiveness generates bitterness. Bitterness creates great darkness in your spirit and soul. It makes you cynical and invites evil spirits to your jurisdiction.
When you are bitter, you always reject the voice of the Holy Spirit. I know sometimes it is difficult to forgive people who intentionally hurt us. For the sake of your salvation and the command of Jesus Christ, forgive them and leave the rest to God (See Mark 11:25-26). Get my book "Spiritual Seeds for Growth." I have exposed some keys you use to break spirit of unforgiveness.

Vengeance belongs to God; He shall repay those who hurt you (See Romans 12:19). Don’t allow bitterness to corrupt your spiritual senses. Release your pain to God through prayers. God will fight for you. God is righteous in all His ways (Psalm 7:11). Whatever the enemy has sown in your life, they will reap it.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Galatians 6:7 KJV
Don’t be bitter because it will break you and make your spirit irresponsive to God’s voice.



5. Equal yoke with unbelievers

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV

The Bible says that we must not equally yoke with unbelievers because they disagree with the laws (Holy Bible) of the kingdom. The scriptures never said we shouldn’t befriend them. If we don't befriend them, how can we preach to them? Apostle Paul said we should not be on the same level as the unbelievers.

For example, when they are watching ungodly movies, and they tell you to join them, don’t join them. If they are going to night clubs and they invite you to accompany them, reject the invitation.
You cannot always agree with the terms and conditions of unbelievers because they oppose the leadership of the Holy Spirit. They can corrupt your respectful manners. They will make you immoral if you always agree with them. The unbelievers resist the Holy Spirit.

If you don’t apply wisdom when you are with them, they can make you resist the Holy Spirit. When this happens, you cannot discern the voice of the Holy Spirit. Come out among them if you want to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Meditate on these scriptures.

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Psalm 1:1-3 KJV
