Have you heard from the Lord lately?
I doubt you did.
There, I Said It
Living in the Tulsa area, the charismatic buckle of the Bible belt, it’s considered heresy to question people who always get “revelation” and “hear God’s voice,” ad infinitum.
Note: It rarely seems to be the Holy Spirit’s gentle nudge or a “still, small voice.”
Note: It never seems to be a correction or guidance for you, but instead, a revelation of something about to happen and you’re the vehicle to help bring it to pass.
For Those Who Do:
I suggest this: For those people who “hear God,” and I realize this is some of you, the odds are overwhelming that you have a deceiver in your receiver.
- Why is God’s Word insufficient revelation for you?
- What’s so wrong with you that you require additional revelation?
- Are you so special that God needs to use you as a vehicle to make up for some things He forgot to include in His Word?
- Why do you demand mystical religion over the concrete, absolute, infallible, and sufficient Word of God?
