Hearing and Seeing God - Spiritual Manifestation

Those who are born again
of the Spirit of God, children of God, they can see the kingdom of
God and they can hear the voice of God, but many believers cannot
understand why they do not hear nor see God. We read in John 3:1 “Now
there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the
Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him:"Rabbi, we
know that you have come from God as a teacher for no one can do these
signs that you do unless God is with him." Jesus answered and
said to him:"Truly truly I say to you unless one is born again
he cannot see the kingdom of God." Nicodemus said to Him:"How
can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter the second time
into his mother's womb and be born, can he?" Jesus
answered:"Truly, truly, I say to you unless one is born of water
and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That
which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the
Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I say to you, you must be
born again. The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of
it but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So is
everyone who is born of the Spirit."
Jesus speaks. His sheep
hear His voice. They listen to Him and they follow Him. Christian
believers cannot understand why they do not hear the voice of God.
What is wrong with them? The kingdom of God is not of this world, it
is of a different dimension. It is of the spiritual dimension, and a
person who is not born again cannot perceive nor experience the
kingdom of God, because the natural man, a normal person, trusts in
his physical senses, his ears and his eyes and his feeling, his
senses. But those who are of the Spirit of God, they have spiritual
perception, and they see God, they hear God.
We read in John 14:16.
Jesus said to His disciples:"I will ask the Father and He will
give you another Helper, that He might be with you forever. That is
the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive because it does not
see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and
will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you
after a little while. The world will no longer see me but you will
see Me, because I live you will live also. In that day you will know
that I am in My Father and you in Me and I in you. He who has my
Commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me and he who loves
me will be loved by my father and I will love him and I will disclose
myself to him." Most professing Christians do not know the voice
of God, they do not hear the voice of God. They do not see the
kingdom of God because they are expecting a physical manifestation of
Jesus Christ. They want to hear Him with their physical ears but He
speaks in our spirit, as we also see happened to the Apostle Paul
when the risen Jesus appeared to him on the Damascus Road. He heard
the voice from heaven that spoke to him, but those who were with him
did not hear that voice. He experienced Jesus Christ but the others
did not experience Jesus, and Paul also wrote in Romans 1:9 "For
God whom I serve in my spirit, in preaching the gospel of His Son, is
my witness."
God speaks to us in our
spirit and if we have not been spiritually made alive and if our
expectation is not a spiritual revelation of Jesus Christ, then we
will not experience Him. We will write it off as something that just
came to our mind, something that we cannot physically prove to
others. The world is looking for tangible proof of Jesus, they want
to physically see Him or else they will not believe. At the same time
they are watching a TV and videos and they believe all the trash that
they see on the TV and in the videos, but when God speaks to them in
their spirit, they do not understand, they do not observe it. They
write it off as some psychological phenomenon. Therefor, if a person
has experienced Jesus Christ then they put him into psychological
ward. They say there's something wrong with this person.
Those who walk with God,
those who know Jesus and experience Him, experience Him in their
spirit. They hear His voice and others don't. They see His kingdom,
they understand his revelation, but others don't. They walk by faith
because they have experienced Jesus Christ for real. They experience
Him by faith in their spirit and therefore because they believe in
His revelation they stay with Him, they follow and they obey Him. The
reason why most believers do not realize or observe when Jesus speaks
to them, when God reveals Himself to them, is that they have the
wrong expectation. They are on a different level. They are operating
on the physical level, whereas the kingdom of God is in a different
dimension. It is in the spirit, because God is spirit and those who
worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
The kingdom of God is not
physical, not the things that we see around us, not the churches that
the religious people build. The kingdom of God is invisible to this
world but visible to those who are born again of the Spirit of God.
The natural man, the person who is not born, again does not hear the
voice of God, but those who are born of the Spirit of God, they hear
the voice of God and they see Jesus Christ in their spirit because He
reveals Himself to them. Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit, as we
read in John chapter 14, and he said to his disciples, I read from
verse 19: "After a little while the world will no longer see Me,
but you will see Me because I live, you will live also."
Those who have obeyed the
gospel of Jesus Christ and who have repented and who have received
the Holy Spirit, they have spiritual perception. They hear the voice
of God and they see the kingdom of God. They are truly born again,
they are part of the kingdom of God. Are you born of the Spirit of
God? Are you a child of God" Because those who are led by the
Spirit of God they are the children of God?
May Jesus bless you.
