How Does Yahweh Speak To His Sons Today?

One of the primary things that sets Yahweh apart from all other gods is He communicates with those who worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

John 4:23-24 “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” ESV

  •  Spirit to spirit communication with our Father is an important part of our daily lives.
  • Hearing and obeying is a basic, fundamental part of the FAITH.

He communicates with His sons in various ways; but most of the time it is by the Word or Witness of the Spirit.

 Hebrews 1:1-5 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again, “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”? ESV

Note: Yahweh always spoke directly to the people with whom he entered into covenant.

“Yahweh spoke to Noah, saying” (Genesis 8:15).

  • “Yahweh spoke to Abram…” (Genesis 12:1).
  • “Yahweh said to Moses…” (Exodus 24:12).
  • “Then came the word of Yahweh to Isaiah…” (Isaiah 38:4)

Yahweh spoke by His LAW and PROPHETS…

Yahweh spoke by His SON…

Yahweh speaks by His Spirit…

Yahweh speaks by the revelation of the Scripture, both older and newer testaments of the Bible…

Yahweh speaks by the word and witness of Holy Spirit…

Yahweh speaks by prophetic utterance, words of knowledge and wisdom…

Yahweh speaks by angels & other messengers

Yahweh speaks by signs, wonders & miracles…

Yahweh speaks by dreams, visions & images…

Yahweh speaks by thoughts, impressions & ideas…

Yahweh speaks by creation, nature and unexplained events…

Yahweh speaks by inner knowing, circumstances & silence…

Note: What He is not saying can be as important as what He has already said.

 Note: Yahweh speaks all the time, but our ability to hear what He is saying is dependent upon how aware and attentive we are at the time. In other words, He is always broadcasting, but we may or may not be receiving the simal-cast.

 Matthew 10:18-20 – and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles.  When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour.  For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. ESV

 John 14:26-27 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. ESV

 John 16:7-8, 13 Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.  And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. ESV

 Ref. (Romans 8:26; 1 Corinthians 2:9-16; Acts 8:29; 13:2)

 Yahshua said, “My sheep know My voice and I know them, and the follow Me.”. (John 10:27)

 Based on my present understanding of the eternal now, Yahweh is saying the same thing, at the same time, to all of His sons around the world. The only difference is how what He is saying is being processed. What they are hearing may vary, but His message is the same.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. ESV

Hebrews 4:12-13 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account. ESV

Conclusion: His sons need a good working knowledge of the written word (that which was spoken) in order to be able to recognize when He is speaking to us today. Therefore, it is expedient for us to prayerfully read the scripture for understanding of the Father’s heart. How He chooses to reveal His heart to us will vary based on our ability to hear His voice and obey His Word. Our reward will be in knowing we have accurately represented His heart and way. Selah!
