'My Sheep Hear My Voice' by Joseph Hedgecock
- My Sheep Hear My Voice
Servants of the Lord Ministries is an apostolic teaching and training ministry serving the body of Christ. It is our aim to help believers to develop a love relationship with God.
Last year we (our body of believers) were privileged to have a man of God visit us and spend three days teaching the body the simple facts about hearing from God.
He spoke continuously from his memory and never seemed to tire, and though he was elderly by the worlds standards, he spoke with the vibrant voice of one in love.
His book "My Sheep Hear My Voice", from which this is extracted, is available directly from his website.
I would advise any believer to read and try to understand this simple teaching, for without this understanding, moving forward with God is difficult.
Success or Failure?
You receive grace when you are humble, but God resists you if you are in pride. When you are in the flesh, you have only yourself to rely on as well as God's resistance to contend with. If you move into pride and try to accomplish things from your flesh, you lose grace. If you can't do what God is telling you to do, it is because you lack grace. This confirms that you are in the wrong nature.
If you walk in the Spirit, you can boldly say, "If God be for me, who can be against me?" (Romans 8:3 1) Nothing can stop you if God is on your side.
On the other hand, if you try to do the same thing in your own lordship, you will find you have lost the grace and anointing to get the job done.
No wonder we fail! We find ourselves resisting God and his control over our lives, then satan mocks us for our foolishness. People try to get rid of the resistance they feel by rebuking. They begin to think they don't have enough faith because the opposition doesn't leave. It doesn't leave because God is resisting them instead of satan! They are operating in pride and being lord, and God continually resists them because they are headed for spiritual death (separation from God).
God doesn't want us separated from him because he loves us.
We don't understand his love and that's why we struggle with his right to rule over us. It's as if we are walking in darkness near a cliff and God is standing at the edge.
When we try to go toward certain destruction (that we can't see),
God stands in front of us to stop us.
We get angry at God because we can't see his protecting power at work.
We get offended because he continues to resist us. We believe that the resistance is from the devil because we don't understand that God is trying to keep us from destroying ourselves.
When God resists us the strongest, we are closest to the edge of destruction! The devil talks us into resisting God more strongly instead of humbling ourselves and repenting of our stubborn rebellion. The harder we resist, the more we believe God is being hard on us.
God isn't being mean. He is simply standing still as we continue to push against him. If he does not stop us, we will fall over the edge of the cliff to certain destruction.
If you will open your heart before God right now, you will probably find that most of your problems in the past have come from fighting against God when you thought it was the devil. Ask the Lord to reveal to you particular instances when this has been the case. Then ask his forgiveness for judging his actions and his motives. Humble Your Heart
1 Peter 5 - 5:6 says, “…. all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:"
When God exalts you, you don't have to worry about holding yourself up. No one can bring you down when God raises you up in the Spirit.
The Lord highly honored the disciples because they followed him. They hold a tremendous position in God's kingdom because they humbled themselves before the Lord and submitted their hearts and wills to him.
If you are lord, God resists you. If he is Lord, God assists you.
God is never going to change. If you want to know God, you must change.
In your best day of resisting, you will never overcome God.
However, when he is your Lord, you will have all you need.
I have used the above under the 'Fair Use' rights.
I would recommend anyone to acquire the book, it will make the difference in your walk with God, and signal the defeat of your life without God, if you will follow it's simple advice.
Finally I have put a link below to the website of David Meyer, a former witch, who has for many years been publishing his monthly newsletter.
In August 2001 he published the following vision he had recieved:
Conspiracy On The East River!
Exactly one week ago, we returned from New York City, where we spent six days working for our Lord and Saviour in research and spiritual warfare.
It was our eleventh trip to this city of spiritual Babylon, and one of our reasons for going was to go to the United Nations, where meetings were to be held to plan a strategy on how to completely disarm the "citizens" of all member nations. On Friday, July 6th, something happened to me that I will never forget. It is something that has happened few times in my ministry, and as we were sailing across New York Harbor on the Staten Island Ferry for Manhattan, the Almighty stunned me with an amazing vision.
I was standing at the front of the ferry outside as we were approaching the Statue of Liberty. I looked at the statue and my eyes focused on the torch. This torch is a symbol of the Illuminati and is referred to by the conspirators as the "torch of Illuminism." After looking at the torch, I turned my eyes to the 13-mile island of Manhattan.
There, in the distance were the twin towers of the World Trade Center rising a quarter of a mile high. The other sky- scrapers in the financial district of Southern Manhattan filled the narrow island.
As I looked, I felt the Spirit of the Almighty come over me, and when He opened my eyes I saw massive flames of fire rising high into the sky as the entire island of Manhattan was engulfed in flames. The flames rose high above the buildings and pulsated with intensity. I could hear the horrifying screams of multitudes of people in the distance as the burning continued and intensified.
Then, the vision ended as quickly as it began, and I stood there with tears filling my eyes as I realized what is coming upon this nation.
I then heard a voice that seemed to come from inside of me saying, "Tell not the vision until you return."
I do not pretend to know what it all means, but I do know that time is short and the end is near.

I personally can vouch that I read this in his newsletter in the August edition, it stunned me when I came home on that day, September 11th 2001, and saw the Towers being attacked.
God truly DOES speak to His people, and especially to those who have ears to hear His voice.
