People ask, “How can I experience God” Don’t expect to hear a voice like Paul experienced, As he was on his way to arrest, as many Jews as possible. To be prosecuted for promoting a way to experience God other than through Judaism. Which was the experience of many people, as recorded through out the Bible, who were verbally, or through dreams had God’s will manifested to them.
There are many of the clergy who still promote verbal and dream experiences as a means of experiencing God. And even suggest, if you are not experiencing them. With pity they’ll declare you’ ll have such experiences if you give more money to a particular church cause. To wet appetites to give more, some will share experiences of having conversed directly with Jesus. One such culprit told his congregants that he was transported to heaven and conversed with his deceased daughter. Such religious scandals are prosperity entrepreneurs. More interested in empire building than adhering to grace age teachings.
They also specialize in scare tactics in order to fill their pews and enrich their bank accounts. At the expense of spiritual enrichment. Which results, in spiritual understanding.
Jesus said this about them, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but are inwardly ravenous wolves,” Matthew 7:15. Because, “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven,” Matthew 7:21. The verses between 15-21 are about the evils of prosperity entrepreneurs, as opposed to grace age teachings given to the Apostle Paul during his three years of seminarian training in Abriba by Jesus Himself. See Galatians 1:15-18.
Peter chimed in, and said this about those prosperity entrepreneurs scattered through out modern Christendom. “…, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the scriptures,” 2 Peter 3:16.
How to escape the unreal and experience the real. If not already, become a church drop out. Start a home Bible study, and consider inviting friends and neighbors to become a part of the group. Focus at first in a slow deliberate study of Paul’s writings.
Experiencing God at this particular time in history. It’s simple and nothing else is required. “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with heart one believes unto righteousness, and the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” See Romans 10:9-10.
Next, consider your passions of interest by instinct. Note the following, “For as, many, as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God,” Romans 8:14; and; “But if we hope for what we can not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance” Romans 8:25; concluding with, “And we know that all things work together for good, to those who are called according to His purpose,” Romans 8:28.
In the church age everything is by faith, note, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seem. By faith we understand that the worlds were formed by the word of God, so the things which are seen were not made by the things which are visible. But without faith it is impossible to please Him. for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” See Hebrews 11:1;3;6.
Got questions get in touch. You will not be asked to join anything or give money. Just help in understanding how to experience God and experience the passions of your instincts through your God experience.
