The business men's bible class I attend and teach when our fearless leader is absent,is basically Baptist.

I try to share a tiny bit in the spirit realm,but it is tiny,tiny steps. Visions are not welcome as of late,but our leader has become "hungry".

Just lately he flat out said " I want the Holy Spirit baptism"

Whoa,whoa,whoa.

Now that is something.

Talk about hearing God. He will soon be telling us of his newfound conversations with the Father!!!!

Wooooo hooooo
I would offer no such thing as a sign gift. Requiring a sign before the person believes they have the Holy Spirit speaks of those who rebel.Natural man walks by sight . Prophecy the word of God for those who have received the Holy Spirit baptism (not seen)

1Co 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but "prophesying" serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

Believe ...faith

Not believe... no faith

How many of you who do not believe God would ever speak in an audible voice have been treated for mental illness?
Amen! Without listening and without faith in His power one can not hear God.
He may never speak to you audibly but only through the Spirit and maybe only through His word.
He knows the best way to talk to each of us.
My britches aren't big enough to challenge God's ability or authority...no way! I know He is capable of anything and He is Master of it all!

Doubters...tongues are FOR A SIGN for non believers (to see...they are unbelievers...they are not going to speak it...those that have received the gift, those that have charity in Christ, speak it)
It's right there in black and white in Corinthians...if you don't understand...pray about it.

Every poster could tell about whether they have been treated for mental illness. I never have.
Actually I was treated for severe depression. Is that the same a mental illness? I was on medication for about 18 months and talked with a Doctor for a period of time.

One way as it is written

If she preached the law of God(word of God) . His word is law and not after the philosophies of men. She was born again through that incorruptible seed. God is no longer bringing any new revelations as interpretations.

Romans 2:12 For "as many" as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and "as many" as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

Where there is no word of God people perish.
Hi garee...Helen said in her darkness, she always knew that she was not on her own, she always felt comfort...It just makes me realize how God can touch everyone, those who man thinks have no hope, am sure the Holy Spirit was with her, or maybe that`s just me wanting to believe that...Although she had no language in her mind, she said she knew God was always with her...Scripture comes to mind Isaiah 55:8-9 [FONT=&quot]“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot] neither are your ways my ways,”[/FONT]

I am in the hopes, Mr. sparkman, that the Spirit of GOD, that raised Jesus Christ of Nazareth from the dead, find it "pleasing TO HIM", to place upon you, either, 1 of HIS Angels, to relay HIS message to you, or, have you "experience" an "visitation" directly FROM HIM!! As GOD does do that which pleases HIM? Perhaps, HE knows, the revealing Himself TO you, in such a manner, would tip your scale over, and HE would lose you to the darkness of the empirical beast!

Unless, or until He does? May you keep providing your "data", as you call it, to open forums such as this!

God has spoken to me audibly a couple of times.
One time I was just wondering aloud and I heard in my right ear, "Yes my son?".
So I asked a couple of questions and the voice answered in an authoritative manner.
At the end of the dialog, I said, "Yes dear, I love you too.", then hung up and pulled the Bluetooth out of my ear. :rolleyes:

[FONT=&quot]So is blind person mentally ill because they can see things which men with eyes cannot? [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]So is a deaf person mentally ill because they hear things which men with ears cannot?

Then how are you able to perceive my words without there being any vibration of air molecules?

Audible merely implies able to heard, as visible merely implies able to be seen[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot], yet neither the ear can hear nor the eye see, they are merely sensory organs which provide the conscious mind with the ability to perceive and reason it physical existence.

Sound and sight are produced electromagnetically, which is why you can see and hear what I am saying since you are a body of invisible light, or what was called Phasma which is another way of saying a talking spirit.

So to answer your question regarding hearing the audible voice of the eternal God, I haven't and while I have my opinion whether anyone has other than the Son has, but if you asked about hearing the audible voice of the LORD, then I can honesty answer that I hope it was Him cause if it wasn't that would mean that I was mentally ill wouldn't it? Or could it possible mean that I merely had a defective hearing organ which spontaneously produces neurons without good vibrations.

Yes the word of God, prophecy, as it is written is comforting. The man without the same spirit of Faith (Christ's) according as it is written cannot believe God not seen . They receive no comfort. She was a great witness to it.

Thanks for the reply

Doubt is not the opposite of faith, unbelief, no faith is.

They are going to speak what, a language someone can understand so that they can believe God called prophecy?

Prophecy is the word of God. Prophets prophecy by declaring it as it is written .No new prophecy for over two thousand years.

Prophecy is the sign that spoke against the oral tradition of men called a law of the fathers. Their oral tradition made prophecy to no effect.

Roman 3 informs us what if they did not believe by exercising as of work faith that alone comes from hearing God . Will their unbelief (not doubt) make the faith of God as the work of of God (work of faith) without effect. There is no separation between faith, the planning, and the work the execution of the faith of God.. it’s all one thing.

1Co 14:21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the LORD.

Christ speaks prophecy, His living abiding word to other people other than the apostate Jew . Yet the prophecy will have no effect they will not believe God not seen, but believe men seen. The result of the fall walking by sight.

1Co 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

It is no different than any time he spoke from heaven giving his understanding in other languages.

It the way the gospel went out while God was still adding to his word .All new prophecy has ceased .What we had in part up until the last person he revealed his thoughts to (John ) today we have the whole or perfect with no law missing by which we could know Him more adequately.

It’s how two different languages could be understood according to the one interpreter called; God. He who made the ear and mouth knows all the languages of the world.

I wonder if when Philip was moved to help the Ethiopian if the gift of tongues was not used to help them understand each other? Or when the Holy Spirit moved the Italian to help Peter understand the spiritual meaning of the parable? I would think there would be a language barrier. Paul was moved to write in in Hebrew. It could have been heard in two languages as God communicated with both..

What dialect did Cornelius speak as his native tongue? Did he receive the prophecy in Hebrew?

Act 10:3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.

I would think in order to hear the gospel in order to believe God (not each other) they would both have to be on the same page or simply hear babble? I would trust if God can confuses a language in regard to all people and create new languages .

Then giving understanding of the different langue would be a walk in the park for him .

1Co 14:11 Therefore if I "know not the meaning of the voice", I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me. His gifts of interpretation tonguesare two fold .

well not really

tongues are also one of the gifts..and yes they are also a sign...interestingly for unbelievers...sometimes I wonder if that does not also include unbelieving believers (that is cessationists)

let's look at ALL the scriptures and not just the ones we think uphold what we were taught or choose to believe for whatever reason

So I need a new roof. Long story there. Anyways with the weather as its been it has been consistent with rain at least every other day.
So in one of my conversations with the Lord I brought this up. He knew I had the materials to start just setting there. Turning the corner on to my street I heard start the project Saturday. I replied but I have no help lined up ....heard nothing. So Friday comes and mentioned to my co workers how I planned to spend my weekend. Two of them volunteer to help Saturday. A third came Sunday. We got it ripped off and started shingling.
One of the guys came back during the day Monday and Tues to clean up while I was at work and carry shingles to the roof top. He's a self employed contractor in between jobs. So he thought he would just keep busy untill his gig started.
By the way it hasn't rained here since last Saturday and the forecast is still clear as I'm working on putting the rest of the shingles down. I'm all dried in that's no problem but wow what a change in the weather. Cool mornings and evenings do me just fine. I'm just getting to old for this lol.

Butterfly nets and straight jacket for me I guess.......kind of like it that way.

yup

I have not heard things audibly, but as clear as a bell in my mind, instructions such as you wrote here or directions

it's amazing. or turn to this or that scripture and it fits the situation perfectly or even things I did not know were in scripture and I 'hear' something about it and then go and try to find it in the Bible because we should, and there it will be

Oh yeah.

How inconsiderate of God to send the Holy Spirit to the upper room.

The audacity of Him not checking with you first
 
"Entertaining Angels Unawares"...there's Holy Angels...There's angels ministering, sometimes directly to you? There's ALL kinds of angels! Some bringing "messages" to you?....There's also angels that don't have your best interest in mind! How do ya tell, unless you test them? Are you afraid of having the "Crazy" label attached to ya there, Mr. sparkman? Perhaps then, young man, you are not ASKING the correct questions, eh? I can't suggest to you on which questions to ask. Because we all are ALL different, so, the questions I might ask, wouldn't do you much good! Or, are you simply apathetic enough, to rest on your laurels, in your supposed secure high tower/s, and question everyone ELSES sanity? I can give you an helpful start however! SOMETIMES? It's a much wiser thing to allow God? To BE God! Tis a very humbling "adventure", to be sure! You should try it! Just REpeat out loud, or internally think. "I AM weak!....YOU, are strong GOD!" Over and over and over! You might, in the end, take to God, like a duck takes to water. Then?...wait, for the feedback when people to whom you hold dearly, start questioning your sanity! Who knows? Perhaps God will start to heal your land!

I have never heard God speak to me audibly. I have heard him speak other ways. God has spoken to me through a couple of dreams and a prophetic word/word of knowledge and encouragement from another person. There was a particular picture in my mind of taking Jesus hand and traveling somewhere. I call that journeys with Jesus. One was where, in my mind I took the hand of Jesus and I saw a rock and we came to a body of water and a waterfall. I was told to go under the waterfall and I did, pretty sure Jesus went with me. The water fell on me as like a large shower but I was not pulled under, just standing there. And the thoughts entered my mind: "I have cleansed you from all your sins. You are pure in my eyes."
