God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son — Hebrews 1:1-2a

Many claim to speak for God and in the past many have but the Bible tells us something changed when God sent his son, Jesus.

No more Old Testament type prophets are needed to represent God to us low-lings; everyone and everything since is focused on Christ — who he is, what he has done, what he is now doing, what he shall do when he returns. In fact, the whole gift of Prophesy is now changed.

[H]e that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort – 1st Corinthians 14:3

Prophesy since Christ, as my old preacher friend said long ago, is to “Build up, Stir up, and Cheer up” — and everyone can do it (1st Cor. 14:31) because the Holy Spirit is given for all who receive Christ as their savior.

Stay clear of those that want to speak to you for God, all his sheep can hear his voice.

Unexpected Whispers

“Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit … but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind … an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake … a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out”. 1st Kings 19:11-13

God speaks in many ways. We want the dramatic and God can do that, the Psalmist says God’s voice breaks trees and move mountains (Psalm 29), but more often than not he speaks in quiet whispers — a child, a parent, a friend uniquely placed.

Listen for him there, too, and be teachable.
