LISTEN TO THE SON OF MAN, NOW SON OF GOD, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 4/13/21
“People often ask: How do you hear the Holy Spirit’s voice? Do you hear voices? Does He speak in dreams, visions, pictures and parables? Does He show you metaphors, puzzles, analogies, enigmas, rhymes and riddles? Could you sense His presence and is it possible to smell His fragrance? Did He really speak to Moses through a burning bush, and could He do the same today? The answer is yes to all of the above questions. Although it’s rare to hear the audible voice of the Lord, He certainly could choose to speak this way if He pleases. He wants to visit us, open our eyes and give us encounters. The Holy Spirit speaks in so many ways, but we must learn to discern His voice. We must learn to filter out our own thoughts and tune in to His.
Television and radio stations are transmitting sounds at all times, but we will only hear them when we turn them on. In the same way the Holy Spirit is constantly transmitting sounds and speaking to us, but we must tune in to the frequencies of heaven to hear Him speak. Our brains process sixty billion bytes of information per second. All our thoughts converge from what we hear externally and internally. Thoughts from our history and our presence mingle together and create thoughts and emotions which result in fear, anger, happiness, joy, etc. A particular scent could bring up memories from our past. So how could we learn to discern His voice?
The other day I was playing a CD from 2002 in my car from John Paul Jackson titled “I AM” 365 Names of God. The presence of God (The Shekinah Glory) filled my car like a cloud just as it did when I played this CD nineteen years ago. I was caught up and separated from the world around me. I was thinking to myself, what happened that seemed to take the body of Christ so far off course? We used to soak in the presence of God for hours back in the day. I believe that Christians have taken their eyes off Jesus. I’m not saying that is the reason why we are in tumultuous times, but if we got back to that personal intimate relationship with the Lord and spent time in His presence, we will be able to shift the atmosphere once again and the world around us would have to respond.
As I was listening to this CD, I heard the Lord say, “There is a new sound arising.” It’s a sound coming from heaven. It’s the sound of revival, it’s the sound of restoration. It may seem as if the body of Christ is on the titanic right now and we are going down, but the Lord says, “You shall NOT go down, but My body shall rise again. Just as Lazarus was dead with no sign of life, you will rise again. Just as Ezekiel spoke to the dead bones and they came to life, you will see the coming of the Glory of the Lord in the land of the living in these latter days says the Lord.”
He is calling us to get back into that secret place and fill ourselves with His Word, then He will rise within us and overflow our being. Storing up the Word of God in your heart is crucial in sensitizing yourself to hear His voice. Store up His word as a treasure within your spirit, then you could draw from it. Pray in the Spirit to strengthen yourself and de-clutter your mind. Train your senses to discern good and evil. He will begin to speak to you in a way that only you could personally understand. When you ask Him for bread, He will not give you a stone. Ask Him for wisdom and revelation so that the eyes of your heart will be enlightened, and you will know the hope of His glory.

JESUS, SON OF MAN & GOD: 4/13/21, From Ken Smith<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
Remember the sons of God in Job 1. Adam also is listed as a son of God in Luke 3:38. Jesus, only begotten Son ? Yes, Jesus was the only son of God of human birth. But seems there may be many Sons of God.. Really Jesus was born in Bethlehem as per Isa. 9:6 & 61 as an anointed man from GOD. The Word of God made all things and in the resurrection merged with Jesus due to the personal victory of Jesus over sin, flesh and lucifer. In The Father’s absolute foreknowledge Jesus always existed as so do you and I. But there was also a birth of Jesus to bring that foreknowledge into predestination and fact. Jesus is the very first to become God/man in the flesh and the 1st of many brethren as per The WORD of GOD’s design plan in Gen.1:27. Of course in the resurrection Jesus and the Word of God merged but Jesus is still there as man in body, soul and spirit, 1 John 5:5-9. Could Jesus have sinned like Adam, yes. Can God sin, NO !!! Jesus was all man while on earth and became GOD in HIS Resurrection through His choices and victories while on earth. And HE became sin for us who knew no sin that the righteousness of GOD might be extended to us. Jesus had over 300 messianic prophesies to consider in his youth. At the age of 12 Jesus was already aware of a Holy calling on his life.
Some of the Church Fathers after the apostles, made Jesus, God at birth, In one Council they excommunicated hundreds of Bishops over the matter who did not agree.. Jesus as SON OF GOD can make it difficult for us to identify with HIM. It is difficult for us to see that we have available to us the same resources that Jesus did for victory over sin and to be able to have the faith become like HIM if He is GOD, 1 John 4:17. Salvation then becomes like magic rather then following the example that Jesus as LORD set before us in holiness. If we have the same Holy Spirit that HE did then through God’s Grace we can learn to do what HE did in this world and become like HIM, if we want to. It is an open door, Sanctification is a process. Jesus came to us as the SON of man, and in HIS resurrection Jesus became the SON of GOD in power and in the image and likeness of GOD, Rev.1:13-18, & 2:26-29, as Jesus, son of man, merged with the Word of God for eternity. To believe that Jesus was God at birth would make his whole ministry, pure hypocrisy as it is easy for God to do anything. Jesus was conceived and sent as a pure 2nd Adam to show us that we could become a Holy people , if we wanted to. That we could be forgiven in Jesus and walk out a life of holiness in the grace and power of the Holy Spirit with Jesus as LORD if we would but have faith for God’s gift and grace to walk it out.

The U.S. government’s budget deficit surged to an all-time high of $1.7 trillion for the first six months of this budget year, nearly double the previous record, as another round of economic-support checks added billions of dollars to spending.
