Does God Speak To Everyone But Me?

I watch a variety of religious channels and programs. Most and I do mean most of the pastors and teachers I’ve watched claim to have heard from God.

I have my doubts. I think most of them are just trying to convince their viewers that they are a man or woman of God.

You’re allowed to think I’m crazy, but I’ve heard voices that weren’t me. Perhaps they were in response to a question I’d posed or just an odd thought out of the blue. Maybe they were indeed some aspect of me or perhaps they were angels or demons. Yet, I’m not going to say that I’ve heard from God unless I’m 100% positive it was God.

The only way to be sure:

If you want a word from God and you want to be 100% sure – read the KJV, the King James Version Holy Bible!

Also keep in mind, if you hear something that contradicts the Holy Bible, it is not of God.

Unbelief

From subtle to nonsensical, certain teachers take a knock at our faith.

One preacher stated, God looked away from Jesus on the cross, because he cannot look upon sin. I call nonsense. How will God judge if he cannot look upon sin, even the world’s placed upon his son? How is God all knowing if he cannot see sin? My interpretation of Jesus saying in Matthew 27:46, My God, My God, why have you forsaken me, is this: Jesus was in great pain and distress and he felt very much alone. My suspicion is God never looked away, not for a second, and when his time of wrath and judgment is come, he will recall every moment of Jesus’ suffering.

Another preacher said that Jesus prepared and orchestrated ahead of time his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. He went so far as to say Jesus set up the placement of the donkey and the availability of the upper room to be discovered by his uninformed disciples. If you cannot believe Jesus knew these thing because God knew them, I think you’re struggling to look for unbelief. Recognizing miracles requires belief that God has power to do them. You can try to limit God the Father or Jesus, but you’re only hurting yourself and gullible listeners. Doubt begets unbelief.

Words that should perk up your ears and actually inspire doubt:

God cannot …

God is not able to …

God must … .
