How God Speaks to Humans

God speaks to humans. God is spirit. He communicates to our spirits. We hear God with our heart. The level of communication (how much he speaks and how much we hear) between us and God depends on the depth of our relationship with him.

There are different ways God speaks to man.

To the carnal fallen man, God speaks through the man’s conscience
To His own Children, God speaks through His Spirit in them
Indirectly, man can hear God’s words through written texts (Bible and other Christian literature) and through the voice of his children.

How to hear the voice of God
How to hear God’s voice

1) Through His Spirit

When God speaks in the heart, his voice is quiet and wordless, but the message is understood by the hearer. His children get to know him easily because they hear and see him. The ears and eyes of their hearts have been opened to receive. Revelational knowledge comes without rigorous bible study. With a single scripture, comes a string of understanding and knowledge that seems like an overflow. The mind is illuminated to understand and know. We receive intuitively. Intuition is quick and direct insight. This intuitive ability comes when the ears and eyes of our spirit are opened by Christ Jesus. Many hear and hear, but perceive not. Many look and look, but cannot comprehend. They can not understand or know because they are not united to the Spirit of Christ.

2) Through the conscience

Every man has a conscience because every man is in the first Adam. The first Adam ate of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Every man has the ability to know good and evil. This tree of knowledge is the spirit of God and it is God’s voice. However, in sinfulness, the conscience can lose its guide or be dulled. All mankind will be judged by their deeds, because all knew right from wrong.

3) God’s Written Word and voice of His children

From written words and the voice of his children, we can only hear God’s word indirectly (not his direct voice). God’s word is profitable because it will show us the way to him. God uses his written words to illuminate our minds when he speaks to our spirit.

 

Summary

Amidst many voices, the perfect way to discern the voice of God is through His Spirit, on the foundation of the written word. If we hear Him directly, we will clearly discern which voices of men are the mouthpiece of God or of the devil. To hear Him directly, we need to become followers of Christ, united to the Spirit of Christ. People who are not his disciples can be easily deceived by the enemy because they are not in the Spirit of Christ.

    1. Hi Gwyn, thanks for visiting. God speaks directly and indirectly. Directly, He speaks to our spirits. Indirectly, He speaks through the voice of His children and His written word.

  2. Heavy, heavy stuff, Liliane B. I liked what you said about ‘the mind is illuminated to understand and know’. Yes, because the child of God’s mind is fortified by the Holy Spirit, we receive a special unction of understanding. My favorite verse in the Bible is…’in all thy getting, get an understanding…Proverbs 4

  3. I love how when we are one spirit in Him that He speaks to us similarly. I see He has you on hearing from Him too. God is good. I love your explanation. It’s true. Each revelation based on a verse or some word of wisdom He gives is living and active and is so much more and opens up and flows – living water – sometimes, so quickly we can barely keep up with writing it down. Incredible that His Holy Spirit teaches us and leads us into truth, Himself. All glory to the Lord!
