    Have you ever heard the voice of God and if so what was spoken to you?

      We would first have to know what the voice of god sounds like to know he spoke. Does anyone really know that? smile

        Beelzedad, it is hard to explain, but I wrote a Hub called A life changing Whisper and I try to explain exactly what I heard. I would imagine that each person would hear differently.

          Then, they are not hearing the voice of a god, but instead the voice inside their head, just like everyone else. smile

            "My sheep shall know my voice." Listen to every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God and obey." Beelzedad, you either seek to be One who believes and shall hear God's voice or you can remain totally deaf and blind to the workings of the Spirit of God.

        The smart a** at it again! Though this time spills forth truth instead of so much discrimination.

        When I hear spirit speak sometimes I can't distinguish always whose telling me the information so I call them spirit. Unless I know first hand who it is. Like if it is my spirit guide. Or some other spirit.

        Hope that helps!

            After showing yo he doesn't like atheists misquoting him in their favor you still use his picture and air your views
            What is wrong with you?  Why do you have to keep abusing Einstein?

      I was praying for my husband to be saved and I would hear a voice say  "You won't have him long after he is saved."  I would hesitate because I didn't want to lose him, but then I would think how his eternity was more important than here, now.  Then I would continue praying.  There was quite a few times that happened, I would here that I wouldn't have him long after he is saved.  My husband was saved in March 1998 and past away in June 1998.

        Hi friend  stilljustwonderin

        One can have an experience or two like this if the Creator-God Allah YHWH wills; but the Converse like a friend talks with a friend happens only to the Messengers Prophets of the Creator-God Allah YHWH like He talked with Moses or with Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908- the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi. He mentions it in many a books written by him in this connection.

          News Flash, it happens to us every day people too  God will talk to any one, ya just have to listen.  I know for a fact that was said to me as I prayed, and just like he told me, I didn't have my husband long after he was saved.    Maybe you don't have a close relationship with your God, but some people do.  Jesus is our friend.  Friends some times talk.

    When I was a child (maybe 8) I was visiting some friends who had eight children. I was sent to find the young boys for lunch. I was running all over their large farm searching and I remember a voice telling me as clear as day "Go to the dam." I went there and the boys (aged under six) were attempting to take a tinny out into the dam. They couldn't swim. I shudder to think what could have happened.

    I am not a christian. So I don't claim it was god. But I do know something sent me to the dam that day...

          Listening is very important in gaining awareness of God's message. It is common practice among faithful people to praise God and pray for ourselves and others. However, just being with God in the stillness of prayer, and listening, often will result in an idea, or a moment of clarity which is a gift from God that validates awareness of his presence and love for us.

            Well said and this stillness and listening can be achieved if you believe in religion or not. 

            Many are convinced it's revelation while some chock it up to imagination.

            Faith is the dividing feature between imagination and revelation for all who believe in a Universal Being.

    How many people in history have lied and manipulated by claiming they were/are prophet of God? If anyone could truly hear voices from a supernatural being, why would the supernatural being expect anyone to believe them considering all the ones who lied in the past? If you hear voices, but see no figure or person, how do you know it's not evil spirits trying to make you think they are God? I think people making the claims without evidence to hear from God are simply manipulating to bring people to their beliefs and religion.

      luvpassionposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      One good sign would be if they told you to - "KILL EM ALL" but I see your point; however if the voice told you to "LOVE PUPPIES" probably not evil.
      I know I've oversimplified...you get the point. wink

        lol @ love puppies.
        I think it's interesting that we usually can't trust a person we can see, but many trust so easily in voices they hear or pretend to hear. What if the voices first started out good, then turned evil from love puppies to kill puppies? The puppies could be used for manipulation letting the puppy killer in. The only way I would trust some voices of someone I couldn't see is if the future was predicted and if magical acts were performed. Still then, besides me, who would believe me?

          luvpassionposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Here's where that little voice called  consciences would come into play. So we have to listen to that voice and trust it as well.

          If the voice has gone from saying love puppies to kill puppies. Mr. Conscience comes in and says wait a sec...kill puppies that's demons.

          There are many who'd believe you Truth...if they'd believe Charles Manson and Jim Jones...why not you?   wink

            Thanks. If someone were to completely submit to the voices when it challenged their consciences to believe, why wouldn't they listen to the voices that tell them to do bad? In the movie "Frailty", killing was taught, but it was demons. How does the person know that the bad voices aren't for a good cause? This is starting to make my head hurt. lol
            I think CM and JJ are excellent examples of why not to believe people that claim to hear voices. I think they also show by their followers that once a person submits their minds, their consciences sometimes become the leaders to manipulate.

              luvpassionposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              The fact that you know to distinguish between a bad voice and a good voice answers that question. There are many who say "the voices told me to do it" as a defense for lapse in Judgement.

              If someone says the voice told me to tell YOU...to kill puppies, suspect foul spirits. If we become afraid of our own inner voices be they God or conscience...we go through life looking for another voice to believe. Therein lies the power of the cult.

                TruthDebaterposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                Thanks. Because you or I know, does that mean everyone knows how to distinguish between the two? Conscience isn't the same for everyone, some must turn their conscience off to survive their environment. I wouldn't suspect any kinds of spirits, but I hope you wouldn't tell me to kill any puppies. I agree on the cult, it's power is having people believe others are favored prophets of God as religion teaches. If God spoke to everyone, why does religion do it through prophets? Prophets wouldn't be needed.

                  I think the conscience is never off...ignored perhaps.

                  I have to admit you have me there on the last point; however perhaps the question should be (In the modern world of special effects and technology,) does God use prophets anymore because of upgrades...Now here me out - would modern-day man listen to someone wearing sack-cloth and eating locusts.

                  Maybe God is upgrading to a better method we've yet to see, or perhaps it's right there in front of us and we just call it Science. wink

                    Thanks. I sorta agree on conscience, but if it can be reprogrammed, isn't it off of the previous program?
                    You make a good point with science. But science like you, me, and everyone else still falls short of proving for or against a specific God. It seems if a God wanted to be recognized as the same for everyone, they wouldn't make it a puzzle to find them. Since a God hasn't revealed themselves to everyone already, why would they in the future?

            Thanks. Even sheep look around first when they hear a voice to find it's source. This is instinct. Isn't it ironic that many religionists refer to themselves as sheep/animals, yet disagree with evolution? It doesn't sound very empowering to me for people to refer to themselves as sheep, much like you don't think it's empowing to think of humans as apes.

      I'm not trying to manipulate any one.  I answered a question.  I did hear a voice tell me that I wouldn't have my husband long after he is saved.
      Just like the voice told me, it happened.  I am no prophet, just a person who loves God..  If you don't want to believe, that's your choice.  I am no liar.

        Thanks. Sorry to hear about your husband passing.
        I didn't call you a liar, but I think people can create illusions when they want to believe something strongly enough. The bible says a prophet is a messenger of God. If someone claims God has spoken to them, then relays the message to others, wouldn't this make them the messenger?

          Well that was a message I didn't want to hear.  I didn't want to lose my husband, but I did want him to be saved.  The message was for me.  I didn't share it with any one for a long time.  People do have spiritual experiences.  I wrote a hub about one of mine.  I don't know you, don't know if you believe in God, but, with God as my witness everything I said is true.   If I took it personal, it is because my relationship with God is personal.
          Sorry I took your statement wrong.

            Thanks. Again, sorry for your loss. It doesn't matter what I believe in the big picture, only what you believe. I would like to point out that many people have been in times of need, then afterwards being able to say they asked for a Gods help, but didn't see or hear a thing. Was they maybe asking the wrong God? I'm not saying spirits don't exist, but I don't believe in a specific detailed God or God's that I can't honestly prove to myself or others.

              Thank you, my husband is in a better place.  After he was saved I started praying very hard for him to be healed.  Yes, again I heard a voice say "He'll be healed in Heaven."  I argued with this voice, but, I lost the arguement.  So, prayers aren't always answered the way, or the time, we want them to.  I think most of us pray to the same God, he has many names.  I really can't say, don't know, why I have had some of the dreams that I have had, or heard the voices I have heard.  I just know it is real, I have experienced it.  I understand some one not believing in things they haven't  experienced.   But I can't deny the things that I have.

          The Messenger is the person who has been explicitly selected to continuously receive the messages and deliver to the other people. Just one or some sentences don't qualify one to become a Messenger Prophet; it is done just to taste others that the Creator-God Allah YHWH has not ceased speaking. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908, the Promised Messiah in second Coming and Imam Mahdi has written on this subject in detail; one could Google for it, if one is interested.

                    Im not going to apologise for pointing out what you were trying to do, which is put words in someone elses mouth. Turning something someone else said into something totally different to make them look bad, thereby thinking your making youself look better. Even if they dont notice right away, other people do.

              No I get it...the question I have is why the voice, would warn her that her husband would die if he was saved. Instead of telling her..."better get your husband saved, just in case." 

              As I said, doesn't sound benevolent...because it seems to leave the possibility open that if he wasn't saved he would live.

          I prayed for his salvation a few years before he was saved   He had a brain anurism. He survived that for a year but it left him with short term memory loss.  Couldn't remember something for more than 15 minutes.  I thought we would grow old together.  Play with our grand children together.  I just thank God that he was saved before he past.  I still miss him some times, but I know he is in a better place.

    God has spoken to me several times in such a profound manner that it pierced me to the core, in other instances it has been such as the scripture would say; "a still, small, voice." The profound communications which we experience can be life changing, but it is the smaller every day promptings that shape our faith and enable us to discern the right from the wrong through much experience, trial, and error. It's all about growth, and the building of integrity. The hard part is to do what you are supposed to do when asked to do it.

      If one is truly born again, He will soon learn to hear God speaking (not in an audible whisper, but in a kind of registration on the heart) when he reads God's word, or when he sits in church and hears a man of God speaking.

    The Creator- God Allah YHWH speaks in the following modes:

    [42:52] And it is not for a man that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a veil or by sending a messenger to reveal by His command what He pleases. Surely, He is High, Wise.
    [42:53] And thus have We revealed to thee the Word by Our command. Thou didst not know what the Book was, nor what the faith. But We have made it (the revelation) a light, whereby We guide such of Our servants as We please. And truly, thou guidest mankind to the right path,
    [42:54] The path of Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Behold! to Allah do all things return.

    One thing I noticed is that I haven't seen anyone claim they heard God, then looked around the room. This is odd to me. When we hear a voice "not self made", our first instinct is to look around the room to see where the voice came from. The people claiming to hear God without looking around, already claiming to know where the voice came from sounds lame and unbelievable to me. This leads me to believe the voices are made by their head. Also, how do you know the voice is God unless they specifically say, "I am God"? Faith?

      You have raised a valid point; when the Cretor-God Allah YHWH spoke with Moses; God introduced to him:

      [20:9] Allah — there is no God but He. His are the most beautiful names.
      [20:10] And has the story of Moses come to thee?
      [20:11] When he saw a fire, he said to his family, ‘Tarry ye, I perceive a fire; perhaps I may bring you a brand therefrom or find guidance at the fire.’
      [20:12] And when he came to it, he was called by a voice, ‘O Moses,
      [20:13] ‘Verily, I am thy Lord. So take off thy shoes; for thou art in the sacred Valley of Tuwa.
      [20:14] ‘And I have chosen thee; so hearken to what is revealed.
      [20:15] ‘Verily, I am Allah; there is no God beside Me. So serve Me, and observe Prayer for My remembrance.
      [20:16] ‘Surely, the Hour is coming; I am going to manifest it, that every soul may be recompensed for its endeavour.
      [20:17] ‘So let not him who believes not therein and follows his own evil inclinations, turn thee away therefrom, lest thou perish.

Between the bush and hearing voices without looking to see where they came from, I don't know which is more unbelievable. At least they did use a source for the voice as others claim the source couldn't be seen, only heard. Still, I think the God bush has little to no credibility.

          I think what many people do is take it upon faith, because they have nothing else and a limited consciousness.

          If half the people did a little research on the subject of human consciousness, and when specifically it came about, then they would realize the truth of the matter.

        I agree you can feel emotional and high with a sense of God or a spiritual experience, but this doesn't give visual evidence that what you believe is correct. This only gives evidence that your belief can determine your emotions, it doesn't give you the original source of emotions.

          Emotions.  My Hub.  When I was laying on my bed crying uncontrollably and suddenly felt the most intense, joyful love, that didn't come from me.  I was in deep despair.
