The voice of God

This is my comment to those people that hear a voice in their head they credit as God's.


The apostle Peter warns us to test the spirits whether they be of God or not and that no spirit that is not of God can admit that Jesus is The Messiah unless they are of God.

Exo 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because, the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

When God makes his presence known to men it becomes obvious, things begin to shake, quake, lite up or burn.

Exo 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst, of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

1Ki 19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:

Luk 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

Mat 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Joh 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. Joh 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Joh 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

Though God makes his presence known to men in other ways by his spirit that works in us and about us using circumstance and by prayer fulfilling our prescient prayers, and prescient words, We have not necessarily heard the direct voice of God because something that came to us in a secret voice came true.

I will not discount that everything that men consider voices external to themselves yet secret to others as not messengers but do not count that these voices are messengers of the most high God. The most high god would send messengers to have us do good unto men not evil. To deliver messages of repentance and warnings of destruction both small and great for not repenting, that is to change ones mind concerning doing evil.

Also remember that in the end all things will have begun and ended with God hence the reason that Jesus told John in the vision of revelations to let them that are righteous be righteous still and those that are evil let them be evil still. That also does not relinquish Jesus command to preach repentance, nor to the old testament writings concerning our responsibility to warn the wicked to repent of their ways and sin no more lest they die in thier sin and then thier blood would be required of us.
