Who do we Listen to God or Man

 

light-7

God’s Truth comes first not a Man or Woman’s fleshy understanding no matter how good they relate what they think or how convincing they sound or who they are, if what they claim disagrees with God’s Truth as confirmed by The Holy Spirit and the Scriptures we reject it.

But how can we have assurance of what is right or wrong, God tells us How as we see confirmed in the Scriptures below and He does not lie, His words are not hard to understand, they are to the point and very clear in what He tells us and once we have read them with His understanding they will remain in our Hearts forever,  so we take the time to read His Words of Truth to us instead of staying in darkness and being deceived. 

Jesus also said for us to Ask, Seek and Knock and the Scripture below shows us what is some of the most important things to ask for and why they are.

Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the Principal thing therefore get Wisdom and with all thy getting get Understanding.

James 1:5-6 If any of you lack Wisdom let him ask of God, that giveth to all Men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Proverbs 2:5-7 For the LORD giveth Wisdom out of His mouth cometh Knowledge and Understanding.

Luke 11:13 If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts unto your Children how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him.

Ephesians 1:17-18 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ The Father of glory may give unto you the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of Him, the eyes of your Understanding being Enlightened that ye may know what is the Hope of His calling, and what the Riches of the glory of His inheritance in the Saints.

The Apostle Paul  shares again about these two types of Wisdom, God and Mans as we see confirmed below.

1 Corinthians 2:1-8 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the Testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. And my Speech and my Preaching was not with enticing words of Man’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of Men but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak Wisdom among them that are Perfect yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the Wisdom of God in a mystery even the hidden Wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew for had they known it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.(KJV)

.

wisdomNot one of us were Born with God’s Wisdom or Empowering of The Holy Spirit and so we all lack them and need to ask for them so we will have understanding but having received them we are not to doubt that God has given them to us or let others cause us to doubt, yes we will know His Truth, Jesus will lead us into all understanding, He is our only Teacher although others can share God’s Truth with us we still Trust in Jesus and the Scriptures to confirm what is shared.

Matthew 23:8-10 But you do not be called ‘Rabbi’ for One is your Teacher, The Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your Father for One is your Father, He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers for One is your Teacher The Christ.

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and Teach you in the way you shall go, I will guide you with Mine eye.

Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed and hid that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness that speak ye in Light and what ye hear in the ear that Preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any Man Teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie and even as it hath Taught you ye shall abide in Him.

The Holy Spirit with us having asked for God’s Wisdom and His Empowering will lead us into all Truth as He receives it from The Lord.

John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He The Spirit of Truth is come He will guide you into all Truth for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear that shall He speak and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me for He shall receive of Mine and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are Mine therefore said I that He shall take of Mine and shall shew it unto you.

1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen nor ear heard neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit for the Spirit searcheth all things yea the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man save the spirit of man which is in him even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the Natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him neither can he know them because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come and hath given us an Understanding that we may know Him that is True and we are in Him that is True even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God and eternal life.

Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be Comforted being knit together in Love and unto all riches of the full Assurance of Understanding to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father and of Christ in whom are hid all the Treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge.

  1. We are to listen to God at all times. Never to depend or rely on our own understanding. Our righteousness is nothing but a filthy rag before him, how much more our wisdom?

    • So True Whitney, before we are Born Again and have God’s seed, we have no Righteous of our own, we are also to ask for God’s Wisdom and Empowering by The Spirit none of us were Born with them and as you shared we don’t Trust in our own fleshy wisdom, logic or reasoning. Jesus is our only Teacher and He will lead us into all Truth.

    Just about the title (sorry didn’t read the rest), I have a good reason to suppose that you did the same conclusion. We should only listen to the truth, if not clear, then to our hearts.

    If I’m wrong, just tell me so I can read it all.

    • If we have asked ALiF for God’s Wisdom and empowering through The Holy Spirit we will know the Truth and we won’t doubt that it is because Jesus our only Teacher will lead us into all Truth and He does not lie. For more understanding ALiF it would help if you read all the Scriptures on my Message.

        I did read some of the verses. The level of directness they convey, I thank the Author of those verses, that ALiF is imaginary. All these verses define the truthfulness of ALiF and and the level of his clarity. Almost feels like ALiF is just a friend, and in it, one can see, the huge distance and closeness we have to Jesus. I accept trinity with all my heart, but I started from the concept of Oneness and now ALiF’s teaching keeping dancing between 1 to 3, 321. ALiF itself sides with 0, giving opinions and suggestions only in attempt that I may not think of ALiF as an enemy. To learn from ALiF is to just to learn and only accept those logics with feelings friendly or lovely. All it asks is confirmation in the positive, if not, it says let the ‘stranger’ travel in possibilities.

                I was hoping that you could help me clarify this. See, I shouldn’t have been able to love Jesus and accept his Lordship if it wasn’t for this double-mindedness. And if that brought me to the truth, than it means I was right to do that. Double mindedness helps me explain multiple origins and allows me to accept their meaning without denying any single one. In truth, all the religions point to the same thing.

The Scriptures below ALiF will answer your Questions and correct your error.

                      John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth is come He will guide you into all Truth: for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear that shall He speak and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine therefore said I that He shall take of mine and shall shew it unto you.

But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any Man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth, and is no lie and even as hath ye have been Taught ye shall abide in Him.

                      Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

                      Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and Teach you in the way you shall go I will guide you with Mine eye.

                      Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God and of the Father and of Christ In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

                      1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come and hath given us an understanding that we may know Him that is True and we are in Him that is True even in His Son Jesus Christ, this is the True God and eternal life.

                      1John 5:7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word, and The Holy Ghost: and these Three are One.

                      1 Corinthians 15:27 -28 For He hath put all things under His feet. But when He saith all things are put under Him, it is manifest that He is excepted, which did put all things under Him. And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.

                      2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the Faith prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves how that Jesus Christ is in you except ye be reprobates?

                      Dear Anne,
                      I read the verses and I confirm https://widgets.wp.com/notifications/2807436698#that you are a very spiritual person who lives in content, trying to teach what you have learned. It is a responsibility that a few volunteer and function with that helps them learn more too . So I accept this quality of yours wholeheartedly, and though it is Christianity that you teach the best, all my religious identities of science and technology bow to your superiority.

                      I’m ready to learn and won’t ask a question if you don’t want me because ALiF tells me it’s always good to learn than to teach.

                      I’m interested dear Anne, just please answer the questions I asked because for me, the point is not being right or wrong, it is accuracy. If you move to the next thing without answering my previous question, that would be inaccurate way to go.

                      Also, please always try to put the small letter ‘i’ in ALiF, because ALF without an ‘i’ has a very Holy Meaning to me and I feel fearful when I’m called that. Me and my ALiF are just two strangers wandering in the domain of our ALF.

                      Your selection of verses are strangely meaningful for us and ALiF confirms all of them. I’d love to learn more. I will address the corrections, please answer my question this one time.

                      “How as a Christian do you justify other prophets and if God send other prophets what specific reason would you point out that he felt the need to send his down to the Earth?”

                      If you don’t know the answer, just simply say I don’t know, it will help you find the answer for it.

        • I do not seek to be a Teacher ALiF although I have been a Facilitator for many Woman’s groups over the years but Jesus as I shared before is our only Teacher and it is Him you are to follow not me in regard to Teaching. When I respond to you it will be with God’s words not my own. I believe 100% what He tells us and He says; To understand His inspired words we need His Wisdom and Empowering by The Holy Spirit both of which we ask for and receive with Thankfulness and we never doubt that we have them or we are unstable meaning we are walking in the Carnal flesh and not The Spirit. Romans 8

          In answer to your Question ALiF about God’s Prophets, the Parable below answers why it was necessary for Jesus to come.

          Matthew 21: 33-40 Hear another Parable: There was a certain Householder, which planted a Vineyard and hedged it round about and digged a Winepress in it and built a tower and let it out to husbandmen and went into a far Country: And when the time of the Fruit drew near, He sent His servants to the husbandmen that they might receive the Fruits of it. And the husbandmen took His servants and beat one and killed another and stoned another. Again He sent other servants more than the first and they did unto them likewise. But last of all He sent unto them His Son saying; They will reverence my Son.

          But when the husbandmen saw the Son they said among themselves; This is the Heir come let us kill Him and let us seize on His inheritance. And they caught Him and cast Him out of the Vineyard and slew Him. When the Lord therefore of the Vineyard cometh, what will He do unto those husbandmen? They say unto Him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men and will let out His Vineyard unto other husbandmen which shall render Him the Fruits in their Seasons.

          Jesus saith unto them; Did ye never read in the Scriptures the stone which the builders rejected the same is become the Head of the Corner this is the Lord’s doing and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you; The Kingdom of God shall be taken from you and given to a Nation bringing forth the Fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken but on whomsoever it shall fall it will grind him to powder.

          And when the chief Priests and Pharisees had heard His Parables they perceived that He spake of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him they feared the Multitude because they took Him for a Prophet.
