How to know the "WILL of GOD?"
Is it enough to become a Christian for someone to be able to know the will of God for him?
The will of God is written in the Bible. Read it and follow it you will be on His path and His plan for you will be unfolded.(Ps 119 :105)Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
First you must know God.
We know God through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Door to the WILL of God.
Second, you must know His Word.
The Bible is a compilation of God's Word which explains His WILL to man.
Third, you must receive His Spirit.
The Holy Spirit will lead and guide you into into the mind and WILL of God.
There are (as far as I know!) two kinds of God's will. The first is general: God's will for us is to obey His commandments, to love one another and be unified and for all men to come to know Him.
The second is more specific to our lives
Like Jeremiah was called before he was born to be a prophet to the nations. Like Paul was called to be an apostle and evangelist.
Finding His will for your life can be complicated to find. Yet, it shouldn't be! Your first job is to follow the general will and obey Him. Then ask for His leading and He will guide you. Sometimes He will speak to you through strange circumstances and sometimes through the mouth of a friend. He will speak to you while you are reading the Bible.
But, God will almost always give you His will for you one piece at a time. He's not going to tell you your entire future in one sitting. Your life is far more complicated than that! But He will give you little impressions, thoughts and sometimes images. He will speak to you more about His immediate will than His will for the future.
Then again, He loves you so much and He created you with His plans in mind--you are born with certain gifts, and others you develop along the way.
Knowing the will of God is really all about knowing God. The more you know Him, the clearer His will for your life will become.
Great question...one that many many many people want to know!
it always prevails when you offer yourself as a living sacrifice...(Romans 12:1-2) obey first and His will, will be revealed to you.

The plan of salvation is not complicated at all. Why do so many make it this way when it is so simple. Accept Jesus into your heart, truly believe he died on the cross for your sins, and confess your sins with your mouth. Then strive to live a life that is pleasing to God. Notice I said...

This list of beliefs I wrote about 5 years ago, came from an approximate 20-year study of the Statements of Beliefs by many different Christian denominations. These were the beliefs I found that were of most common agreement between them. That doesn't mean they represent ALL denominations but...

There are people who believe in God and people who do not.I know that there are gnostics and agnostics but this is not about that. Do all the people who believe in God also believe that man has a soul that does not die? Do all the people who do not believe in God, do not believe that man has a soul...

What does the term, "Familiar Spirit", per the Bible, mean to you?It seems the Bible takes a negative attitude towards familiar spirits warning that they are dangerous, deceptive, etc. I tend to agree. What do you think? What are some examples of familiar...
