Summary: Can you hear the voice of God. He is calling you.
“Can You Hear Him Now……….Good”
Revelation 3:6 “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches”
I know you have seen the commercial with the man that is in some secluded location, talking on a cell phone. He ask the question “Can you hear me now?’ Evidently the person on the other end says yes cause the man replies Good. He takes a couple of steps and ask the same question again “Can you hear me now?’ there is a slight pause and then he says Good. He takes a few more steps and asks the question again. That phrase as become a well know phrase that when ever you see someone talking on the cell phone you think about that commercial so I would like to take from that commercial and this scripture and use for the a subject “Can You Hear Him Now……….Good”
The Bible says, “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” I must establish this first; God is trying to get the attention of the church. Understand that Original Glorious is not the church, Zion Baptist is not the church, First Baptist is not the church, The Potter’s House, World Harvest, or the Vatican is not the church. Denominations such as Apostolic, Pentecostal, Baptist, Full Gospel, Church of God, C.O.G.I.C., Methodist, or Catholic are not the church. The church is comprised of those that believe in the Lord, who are called by His name and according to His purpose, that is the church. God is speaking to the church, He is not talking to the world, He is not talking to the sinner, He is not talking to a denomination, but He is talking to those that are called by His name according to His purpose, the Church. I know what someone may be thinking, “Are you trying to say God does not talk to the sinner? No that is not what I am saying. God has a purpose for the church and he is trying to get the attention of the church so they can carry out the purpose God has for them. It has nothing to do with the world or with the sinner man, but those that believe on the name of the Lord, who are called by His name and according to His purpose. That is the reason why the Catholic religion is experiencing what they are experiencing now, He is trying to get the attention of the church. The reason why terrorist have attacked America is He is trying to get the attention of the church. The reason why little children are being taken out of their beds in the middle of the night is because He is trying to get the attention of the church. The reason why one man can say he is offended by the pledge of allegiance and nearly change an entire nation overnight is because God is trying to get the attention of the church. He said “If my people (the church) who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, seek my face and turn from the wicked ways, then shall I hear from heaven, I will forgive their sin and heal their land”. Understand that at this time God is not talking to the world, He is not talking to the sinner man. The reason why is because the god of this world hath blinded the mind of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. Since their minds are blinded they are unable to understand what it means when we say as you see the signs of the time fail not to assemble yourselves together and they can’t believe that God is soon to come again. Therefore He is talking to the church, those that believe and are called by His name to do His will saying “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
Before I can go to the mountaintop let us have a little Bible class if that’s all right.
The Ear: is a very vital and important part of our lives. It’s the organ of hearing and balance, consisting of 3 parts the outer, middle, and inner ear, it is one of the ways that we are connected to the world around us. Our ears afford us the ability to be able to hear the birds’ sing, the children laugh, and the thunder roar. They alert us to potential danger that we are unable to see; for example when we are in our cars traveling in one direction and we are unable to see the ambulance or police coming from the side or from behind us, but our ears distinguish the sound of the sirens from all the other sounds around us and lets us know that danger is coming. The ear is able to distinguish efficiently, sound as low as a light whisper to a thunderous roar. Doctors and Scientist have said that the ear is a miraculous perfection of engineering that even with the most sophisticated computers and electronic digital equipment that it is impossible to duplicate the function of the ear in a machine the size of a refrigerator; however, the ear is capable of doing it in an area the size of a pea. WHAT A MIGHTY GOD WE SERVE. The ear is responsible for hearing (TRUE), but it also has another function in that it provides us with what is called “Equilibrium”.
