How to Hear from God – Part 1

This series will help you discover how to hear the voice of God inside of you.  Often we think we are hearing from God, when what we are listening to is our soul realm, or our body; not our inner spirit man who is a spirit.  Once you understand the make-up of who you are; you will be able to distinguish the voice of your spirit versus the voices of this world.


1 Thessalonians 5: 22, 23:   22 Abstain from every form of evil. 23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your entire spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.   Berean

Sanctify – hagiazo – to purify and consecrate mentally; make holy and be holy

Ephesians 5: 25,26…25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her 26 to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to Himself as a glorious church, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.…  Berean
