The Father's Voice

 

► 1 Corinthians 4:15 NAS "If you were to have countless tutors in Christ, yet you would not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel."

 

► John 8:47 NAS "He who is of God hears the words of God"

 

If you don’t know the intent of the Father’s voice you do what Adam & Eve did.

  • Genesis 3:8 NAS "They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden."

 

My mom told me the other day that she didn’t know what a father was like because of the one she had.

  • I told her that she had to find the Father in the word.
  • Our well being on this earth and our eternity hinges on how we accept the Father’s voice.

 

WHAT IS THE FATHER’S VOICE?

  • A voice that is more interested in your complete well being than the relief of your uncomfortable present circumstances.

 

► Luke 1:17 NAS "It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."

 

If you come to me with a problem I will most likely try to find the problem as it applies to you.

  • Ex. "Nelly with Aaron’s chewing"

 

► Jeremiah 6:14 NAS "They have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, Saying, 'Peace, peace,' But there is no peace."

 

A parent is not looking to a child’s overall good when they base their decisions with that child off of:

  1. The child’s comfort
  2. The child’s wants
  3. The negative response of the child
  • They’re actually parenting based off of their own comfort.

 

► Hebrews 12:9-11 NAS "9 Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. 11 All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness."

 

The spirit of antichrist always speaks against the Father’s voice.

  • Revelation 13:5-6 AMP 5 And the beast was given the power of speech, uttering boastful and blasphemous words…6 And he opened his mouth to speak slanders against God, blaspheming His name and His abode
  • This voice is in our nation and world today.

 

► Hebrews 3:15 NAS Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts, as when they provoked Me.

 

God’s voice is used to shake & purify things, not to harm.

  • Hebrews 12:26-28 NAS 26 And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, "YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN." 27 This expression, "Yet once more," denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
