9 years ago, I was on a contract, working at this horrible place. I left some tracts the canteen. Everybody hated me there. I felt constantly panicky. One day I was praying (and crying) woe is me 🤣 everybody hates me & The Lord said “they’re not rejecting you, they’re rejecting me”. (In my head) Then I read that in The Bible later that week. I didn’t even know that was in samuel!!
That's your imagination. It goes way off track sometimes. But are you sinning to claim it is God speaking? He only speaks through scripture since there are no more prophets.

I too have also had Holy Spirit speak scriptures I hadn't read before.

The Lord speaks many things to me to help me in my daily life that is not in scripture. I am so glad I don't have your mindset, you are missing out on much.
Faith to overcome daily troubles comes from scripture, not voices in a person's head. Scripture is the sword of the Spirit.

that is in uncalled for I will make a recommendation for you to be banned.
They banned Jesus continually. If you have the truth disprove what I say.

He speaks to me also and helps me in my daily life......we have a wonderful personal relationship with our Father...it’s the most precious gift anyone could have.....I wouldn’t trade it for all the money in the world.

Paul says we are to cast down imaginations.
Wrong! I know what I heard...it got me praying that The Lord would have mercy on their souls (if there were 10 believers there)...there was another instance though, around the same time. I asked The Lord what I could do to make Him accept me, I got “I already accept you”. NOW, That’s not in scripture, so there we have it 😐

Scripture thoroughly furnishes us, not voices in the head.

Aaha, I have another one...I had only just started believing in Jesus (reading John), when John mackay came to our church (the creation guy). I prayed, then told The Lord ‘I cant get my head around the creation thing, so I’ll just believe in Jesus because that’s what you want me to do’...I got “if you do not believe Moses and the prophets, you will not believe in Me”...then I read Genesis 1, and believed in a literal 6 day creation! THEN I came across like 16:31! Ok, so i know it was a slightly different in the verse, but it was in my head for days until I wrote it down 😬

I quote memory verses from years ago. That's God's word. Think of it this way. The Word is Spirit and life. It creates faith in a supernatural way. You are cheating yourself out of this chasing your imagination thinking it is God.

Again, not in your head, in your spirit.
Discern the difference.


Amen!....spot on....when God’s spirit speaks to our spirit....the same when he testified to my spirit that he was God..how else would I know who he was....all biblical.

Acts 10:19

While Peter was still thinking about the vision,the Spirit said to him,Simon three men are looking for you.
So get up and go downstairs.
Do not hesitate to go with them,for I have sent them.

I almost passed this over but it seems God said I should read it and then decide.

I very much concur with the fact that now is the time for spiritual warfare and also prayer for mercy. Evil would overwhelm the world. The devil always tries to get ahead of God.
