    How do I get myself to be able to listen to God's voice? I want to hear I just can't.

      Prayer is important to hearing from God, and for us to talk to him. God wants us to pray about everything and everyone.

      It is very important to read God's word, the bible. Like anything else, we need to know what Jesus wants from us to follow Him in love and integrity.

      The Bible, our manual for living our lives here on planet earth is God's word. It is all in there. So much treasure and life in one book! This is the measure against all of what God is saying to us is tested and confirmed.

      Words of knowledge are spoken from other people, sometimes, when God wants us to know something, he will speak through someone. It could be through a dream, a song, a thought, or anything else. Sometimes the answer you seek is in the Bible...and God want's you to research and find it.

      ." My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me." John 10:27.


      There are so many ways for us to hear God . the questions is....Are we listening?

          No, not being cynical, dj.
          You still don't understand existence. Here, let me remind you again:

          God exists or not, whether one claims to be a believer or not....right?

          I mean, God doesn't just begin to exist when one has an epiphany and becomes a believer, right?
          And God doesn't magically cease to exist when one loses their faith, right?

          Clearly, existence has nothing to do with what you believe, or claim to know, or what authority you can reference on this issue.
          What is it that you don't understand about this?

          Think about it and we can discuss. This is basic stuff.

            Well you certainly make the point clearly enough.
            I thought you DON'T believe that He exists. Now, you affirm that our faith, or lack of changes nothing. A point I've been making in one form or another in all I post.
            I just don't believe alcohol, or drugs are needed for one to have that "epiphany". It falls outside of what God considers an acceptable means of approaching Him

              "Well you certainly make the point clearly enough."

              Well, by what you post below, I obviously didn't.


              "I thought you DON'T believe that He exists."

              Let's try again...
              Belief has nothing to do with existence. If one believes object A exists, it accomplishes nothing. It is irrational to "believe" that God exists, or to "not believe".

              Existence is only a hypothesis, never a theory. You cannot theorize (explain WHY) that God exists. Just like ancient and modern theologians do, you hypothesize (assume) that God exists. With your God hypothesis, you "theorize" that God created the Universe, by waving His hand, speaking it into existence, from a state of chaos, or whatever...

              dj, the BEST you can do is to rationally explain whether it is POSSIBLE that God created the Universe.
              So really, it is irrational to "believe" or "not believe" whether God exists. At best, one can "believe" or "not believe" your Theory of Creation (explanation)....but that is one's personal business and it doesn't concern reality.


              As you can see, there is no provision for belief, knowledge, truth, proof, opinion, or authority when it comes to the claim of the existence of God (the creator).


              "Now, you affirm that our faith, or lack of changes nothing."

              Yes indeed! It changes nothing. Your faith (or lack of) has nothing to do with reality, nor does it affect it in any way. The best you can do, is to explain why God "may" exist. And you can only do that by rationally explaining that God "could have" been the creator of space & matter.


              "BTW, I appreciate your tone."

              Despite the dead bodies in the trunk of my car....I don't bite!
              Scientologists keep asking me...."What are you afraid of?....what are your crimes?"

                Oh, I think I get it. hmm

                God DOES exist, just outside of our natural material world.

                You choose to believe that, because of a lack of proof,  that He does not.
                I choose to believe that He does, even though I cannot prove it. So, whether I believe and you don't believe, He still exists (out there...somewhere).
                Conversely, If nobody chooses to believe, He could still be "there".
                And again, if everyone ever living, or dead, was a believer, it could be that He's NOT out there.
                It's very clear to me!!
                God just IS.

                  "Oh, I think I get it."

                  Sadly, you haven't.


                  "You choose to believe that, because of a lack of proof"

                  This is your issue, dj.....you make use of strawman arguments to justify your position by misrepresenting what I say. You fool no one!
                  Existence has nothing to do with your opinions of belief or proof. If it did, then God would come IN and OUT of existence once a person believes/proves God, and then disbelieves/disproves God.

                  You have hypothesized/assumed God to exist. But with your assumption, you cannot explain if the creation of space & matter is even a remote possibility.....never mind proof. The word "proof" is not even part of your vocabulary here.

                  Try using the word "explain" in your vocabulary first. Once you've given an explanation for creation of space & matter as a "possibility", then we can talk about other issues. But until then, you can claim that you "believe", have "faith", or can "prove" God exists, or God just IS.....but all you've said is nothing.


                  "He still exists (out there...somewhere)"

                  That is your assumption and the assumption of all theologians.
                  It is no different than the assumption that Cinderella exists out there somewhere. Only a non-contradictory explanation can make that statement a possibility.

                    Here we go again.
                    Now we are talking semantics.
                    I made a statement that "GOD JUST IS"
                    Our belief or disbelief is meaningless and useless.
                    It simply puts us on opposite ends of the faith/doubt continuum.

                    The proof you, and all unbelieving rationalists seek is (for the moment) IMPOSSIBLE. You rightly point out that I have no proof, (of His existence), and I don't expect you to prove His NON-existence, because you can't.

                    The big point you seem to either NOT comprehend, or you duck, is that He can be known by revelation. IF God chooses to reveal Himself to someone, then that someone will KNOW that God exists. They will KNOW Him.
                    IF you have read a Bible, you will note that it is a FAITH book. In fact, it says that WITHOUT faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please Him. So, faith may be a dispensable thing to you, but it's not to God, nor those who follow Him.

                    Quantum research is trying to divide the smallest components of what we call matter, and they are coming to a dead end, because they can only divide down to a certain point, and no more. What does that mean, it means that we can only research SO FAR, and we come to an impassable barrier. That barrier can only be explored by thought, hypothesis and conjecture. Each requiring faith.
                    I say, what if God is beyond that barrier? And I believe that He is.
                    Example; Jesus appeared to the 11 disciples who were held up in a locked room. One moment He was not there, the next he was. Then they spoke to Him, ate with him, and (And the infamous doubting Thomas) touched Him. Physically. Then? He disappeared.
                    I can't prove the event ever happened. Neither can you, that it didn't. I believe it did, you don't believe it did. Faith vs doubt.

                    The Bible says that He is the One Who inhabits Eternity.
                    Also, "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him, must worship Him is spirit and in truth". Just how do you suppose science will experiment on the spirit world? How can they discover "proof"? Besides, if I see something, touch it, smell it, taste it etc, what need to I have for FAITH. I don't need to "believe" it exists. It's right there in my hand. That, my friend is your limitation.

                    Please address your own assumptions before you call mine a straw-man argument.

      butternugget, sometimes you need to turn off the tv or music and listen. We can't always hear God unless it is complete quietness. When you are done praying, wait in silence with patience. Listen for his voice. Pray that God will give you a sensitive ear to hear his voice when he speaks to you. The bible have the answers to every situation in your life.

      tastybrainposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      How would you know his voice when you heard it? How would you differentiate it from your own interior monologue? How would you know it is not the Deceiver? What form would the voice take? Will it be audible? Will it be in the form of a miraculous sensation in your brain? Perhaps it will be none of those. Maybe it will come only in your specifically directed attention to the details of life that happen around you. Ah, yes. That's the answer. When you believe hard enough, then, THEN you will hear that "still small voice".

      I"m sure that if you continue to search for god and believe in god then you will find a way to "hear" his "voice". All believers do. That's the nature of belief. Just learn to interpret everything around you as the will of God. Then you will hear from him daily.

        The Romans were masters of crucifixion
        and VERY experienced with DEATH. The centurion
        declared Jesus DEAD.
        All the disciples saw, talked with, ate with and touche Jesus AFTER His resurrection.

          They only saw the same Jesus before them who had got recovered from the injuries iflicted on him on the Cross. Nicodemus gave treatment to Jesus in the tomb he was layed in.

          Jesus did not die on the Cross in the first place; so there is no question of his resurrection or ascension.

          I don't mind if you are blunt; that won't change the reality in any case.

    I would say stop doubting that you can hear God, and just be willing to listen. Ask God to speak to you in His on special way. God knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows how to get through to Us. Use the bible as your compass to find the way in this world.

    Find something constructive to occupy your mind, and listen for God in your Heart. Someone once told me, to crawl out of my mind and into my heart because that's where Jesus is. I reduce the amount of time I had to figure things out and begun to trust and respond to God.

    Here something I would like you to try. Here is a link to a song called mighty warrior. I would like you to listen to the song with your eyes closed, and your heart open to see what you hear.

    "My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me." John 10:27.


      All of the bible does hold knowledge. BUT ...

      I think the teachings of Jesus is all that we need to know.
      We need to return to basics.
     
      Everyone should occasionally just open their bible and read the RED  INK.  If you do not have a bible that highlights those things that Jesus said you should borrow one.
      Start in Matthew and read all of these red letted words, through out the NT in one session.
     
      Any Christian that disagrees with this statement should    reevaluate themselves with great vigor.

      And keep an open mind, searching for misconceptions that you may have been taught.

      When Jesus says something that does not fit with your perception of that which someone else says, reevaluation needs to be done..

       As I have said many times here on these forums;
    Believe first those things that Jesus taught.  Read these things repeatedly until they are firmly established.
       
       
       If we hear "HIS" voice  (words)  and believe and follow him.

      Sometimes we need a refresher course; (Quite often);

       we need to return to basics!

    I suppose first you must be rid of the "concept" of God or you will be listening to your own mind, then you must look for things that God might be listening to and answering, then develop a practice of understanding that sort of communication. Then perhaps prayer and meditation can bring you closer to "it" whatever it turns out to be.

                    even jesus is urban legend for many and for 67% people in the world , jesus is mere a name...according to them you are ignorant..so judgment of who is ignorant and who is not doesnot have concensus..it is mere faith ...for some jesus is god , for some he is son of god , for some he is human , for some he is moral teacher , for some he was false prophet , for some he was true prophet but muhammad was seal of prophet and for some jesus is story...all believe that their version is only true version..who decides?

            YOu yourself say Son is equal to God. You do not say son is the father. They are two different entities. And, there is nothing like holy ghost. Trinity is a false propaganda incorporated later by the machinations of Satan.

            Even the belief that Jesus is God is a clever manipulation of Satan. Jesus, on numerous occasions, had pointed out that he was not God. Can you please give me one instance wherein he claimed that he is God?

            He once only said that who sees him sees God. This means he is as good as God but not God. Were he to be God, was the universe without a God when Jesus lay dead for two days before resurrection? It means the world can run itself without God, The basic tenet itself is shaken by this admission. So, the world does not really need God.

            On a personal note, I must say that there is always a thought in my mind for Jesus and how he saved me (I hope) and I keep thanking him. I try, yes only try - to follow him; not God.

            In fact, I suspect God does not really know nor care what happens to individual persons. It is Jesus and his angels who do this job.
            Thank you

              Isa.9:6 tells us Jesus is the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father
              In Matt. Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Ghost and became with child,
              That makes the Holy Ghost the Father

    Jesus did not die on the Cross in the first place; so there is no question of his resurrection or ascension to the skies or his being god or son of god.

            Indeed. People often are not aware of the actual real consequences of these beliefs. Is the average Christian person comfortable with the idea that so many good people are destined to perish? What does that say about their loving God? They need to more critically examine their beliefs.

    God

    The Creator-God Allah YHWH is manifest with following attributes:

    [2:256] Allah — there is no God but He, the Living, the Self-Subsisting and All-Sustaining. Slumber seizes Him not, nor sleep. To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that will intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them; and they encompass nothing of His knowledge except what He pleases. His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth; and the care of them burdens Him not; and He is the High, the Great.
    [2:257] There should be no compulsion in religion. Surely, right has become distinct from wrong; so whosoever refuses to be led by those who transgress, and believes in Allah, has surely grasped a strong handle which knows no breaking. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
    [2:258] Allah is the friend of those who believe: He brings them out of every kind of darkness into light. And those who disbelieve, their friends are the transgressors who bring them out of light into every kind of darkness. These are the inmates of the Fire; therein shall they abide.

    [59:24] He is Allah, and there is no God beside Him, the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace, the Bestower of Security, the Protector, the Mighty, the Subduer, the Exalted. Holy is Allah far above that which they associate with Him.
    [59:25] He is Allah, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

      paar you are just a Jesus hateing member of a BANNED ISLAMIC CULT who is so stupid you cannot even answer a simple questionr, LOOK AT THE POST Islam or Allah were never mentioned. Butternugget  apeare to already have his faith,ok

      PROVE Jesus ever went to India from the Quean or the Bible, if you cannot shut up
      paar Allah is not and never will be my God , I follow Jesus Christ who to me is the only true God.

      I am so sick of your lie's that Jesus never died on the Cross and went to India,

      Paar PROVE IT FROM THE QURAN????
      Paar PROVE IT FROM THE BIBLE???

      paar if you CANNOT PROVE WHAT YOU SAY THEN YOU LIE!!!!!

      sorry exorter, but paars LIES and INSULTS about Jesus get to me, paar will NEVER PROVE WHAT PAAR says about Jesus because it is paares lies. I can talk about religion to anybody who is rational and honest, that is how we learn from each other.

      BUT PAAR JUST LIES WITHOUT PROOF THEN RUNS AND HIDES I tried to talk nicely to paar he only insulted my beliefs, paar was not nice or peacefull, paar only attacked Jesus and my Christian beliefs





      in answer to the post by butternugget,
      I belive if you put time aside for Jesus, if you are in a quite place with nothing to distract you, it is possiable to talk with My Lord Jesus Christ, after all unlike many Gods Jesus is the only   true  living peacefull God. Jesus cares about you and all mankind. It is up to you by prayer and asking for Gods blessing that Jesus can and will come into your heart and soul. Jesus will become part of your life and will be with you now and always. Butternugget it is up to you to make that 'special connection' with Jesus Christ , then Jesus will bond with you forever, it is only then that you and Jesus will establish a lifetime BOND' This is not a easy Quest, but the outcome you are striveing for can happen'
      Butternugget as you read threads from libby  and  Dj woman of courage as well as schoolgirlforreal along with pasean, all bring up good points. Just take your Bible go to a peacefull place, foget your cell phone, and read and listen, the Christian faith is just that a Faith,  to my way of thinking and total faith in My Lord Jesus Christ, you will achieve your Quest in time, I belive that.

      ( what ever you do just IGNORE anything from paar, he really has no clue. so pay him or his comments no mind)

      As I was told many years ago 'seek and ye shall find' that is what I say now to you butternugget " seek and ye shal find' I'll pray you achive this Quest.


      God bless you  in your  Quest, Butternugget.

    Wow first time in the Hubpages forum and all I find is Atheists vs Christians debate. Why is it that atheists feel the need to come in here and beat on Christians?

    Ooo, wow, you don't believe in God, you’re so sheik and trendy. I wish I was like you! (well I am but that's not the point). The point is you should stop inciting pointless and idiotic arguments. You should also stop forcing your beliefs on others. Arguing atheists are like new age Jehovah’s Witnesses. Instead of knocking on your door and trying to shove their beliefs down your through they jump on Christian threads and do it.
    And you Christian Jesus freaks. Stop responding to these bullies. The thing about Atheists is that they're probably smarter than you.  So you will rarely win an argument. They come off looking like petty ass-holes and you come of look like nonsensical morons. Oh and don’t shoot the messenger. Countless studies show an inverse correlation between religion and intelligence.

    Do you people have nothing better to do with your lives?
    I saw a guy die today, he keeled over and had a heart attack. God called him up to heaven, or maybe the fat clogging his arteries did. Either way, imagine he was like you, sitting on hub forums having stupid arguments. In his final moments would he have been thinking 'boy I wish I could have spent some more time on HubPages fighting those evil/deluded atheists/christians'... I think not.

    Go do something productive with your lives.
