How does God speak now? How do we listen for him and recognize his voice over others? How have you heard the Lord speak to you?

Hi Cherie, there's a recent and very well-done documentary that you might enjoy called, The God Who Speaks. It can be rented or purchased in HD video at Amazon (and it may still be free to Amazon Prime members).

It also has an all-star cast of pastors, theologians, apologists, historians and linguists.

Don't be deceived cherieR ... Jesus was crucified on a tree not a pagan cross...
Cross means stake or pole
Holidays such as Christmas and Easter are pagan

Hi Third-temple, I realize that you were addressing Cherie, but you quoted my post to do so, so I am interested, which part of what I wrote and/or which part of the documentary's trailer did you issue your warning to her about?

Thanks!

The trailer mentioned the pagan holidays and a cross was shown with an idol image of Jesus... Red flags for me ... As neither have anything to do with Jesus

When He has used me for a owrk He would give me what to do by the Holy Spirit. No words, just uinderstanding what He wanted, with details.

He showed me a vision where all souls were on a precipice of a seemingly bottomless drop off into blackness but another mass of land was across the way. oN THAT LAND MASS WAS A WEE light THE BECKENED ALL WITH A KIND OF MESSAGE, "bELIEVE AND you may cross over." That was when I was about six or seven..

He spoke to mein a dream once about the Children of Israel, how if they HAD NOT BEEN DISOBEDIENT IN THE wILDERNESS, THE NATIONS WOULD NEVER HAVE GAINED SALVATION FOR THEY WOULD haVE BEEN CONSIDERED His perfect people and ll others would haveremained dpagans (nations).

And more, but by now most hae alredy stopped reading to scoff...All blessings in Jesus, Yeshua..j

God speaks to us through His word, He speaks to us in our Spirit in many ways like through a feeling or discernment, or a voice or in visions, in dreams too. There's countless ways we can experience Him communicating to us.
However He communicates, and whatever He communicates, will never contradict His word.

You realize that, in context, the speaker was pressing an important point about the Bible, that it is not a made-up story to make people feel better, like having it talk about "the spirit of Christmas" or "the inspiration of Easter" might do. IOW, the video was using those two things as ~negative~ examples, examples of how the Bible .. WASN'T .. written, about what it is not .. just FYI.

As for Jesus not being crucified on a pagan cross (but on a tree instead), if you don't mind me asking, why do you believe that, especially when you consider everything that the Bible tells us about His Crucifixion being on a cross? Was Simon, for instance, pressed into service by the Roman guard to bear/drag a "tree" (not a cross) through the streets to Golgotha for Jesus to be crucified on?

Thanks!

Read Hebrews, God has spoken many times through his prophets, but these last times he speaks through his son, Jesus.
How do we listen for Him and recognise his voice over others?
We have the words of Jesus recorded for us in the New Testament.
We can also pray and ask God to hear from Him.
Yes I have heard the lord speak to me.
