Losing the Fear of Death

As a Christian we should not have a fear of death. Of course it is human nature to protect ones life and we absolutely should do so because we are the temple of God and His Spirit dwells within us. We are told not to destroy our temple as we are born again to do good works. There are so many things that we do that destroy our temple which you are well aware of as your flesh fights against your spirit waging war. Jesus said ” the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” We actually do the things we don’t want to do the Apostle Paul wrote because of one reason, “sin dwells within us.” And who can rescue us from this body of death, only Jesus Christ and Him alone.

Now concerning the fear of death it is written that “Perfect love cast out fear” Because fear involves punishment and the one who fears is not perfected in love. How is someone perfected in love? For starters we must love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul and minds. Then we must love our neighbors as ourselves. The Bible says how can we say we love God who we have not seen and hate our brothers who we have seen? So learning to love is paramount in our Christian life and it is a Decision, Not an Emotion! We can decide to love God, we decide to love our neighbors no matter what the circumstances and relationships are because we say to ourselves; God loves them and they were created in His image and He is not willing that anyone should perish, but wants them to have eternal life. There is none righteous, no not one, we were born into sin in this life because of the fall in the beginning.

If you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when you die your going straight up to heaven and have that assurance in your heart, then why would you fear death or what man can do to you? The answer is your either not perfected in love yet or you are unsure of your salvation. You can be sure you know by faith in what Jesus did in the cross. “For we are saved by His grace through faith, not of works lest anyone should boast.” Let’s take a quick look at eternal, everlasting life guarantees written to us in the Bible. Jesus speaking said:

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” (John 5:24) Really is there any need to go on? You pass from death to life when you believe that God sent Jesus to offer Himself up for us.

Maybe you need more so how about this verse: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may KNOW that you HAVE eternal life.(1 John 5:13) So that you may Know not hope but know! And here’s another: Whoever believes in the Son HAS eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.(John 3:36) HAS eternal life means you possess it right now and it’s granted now while your alive and when you die there is no doubt your going to heaven.

And another one:

“In him we HAVE redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” (Ephesians 1:7) and here is a list of other verses not that you need them.

“In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation– having also believed, you were SEALED in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge (guarantee) of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14)

And this one: “But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning FAITH that we proclaim: that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, YOU WILL BE SAVED; For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and ARE SAVED.(Romans 10:8-10)

“Who through faith are PROTECTED BY GODS POWER for the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.(1Peter 3:5)

” For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of IMPERISHABLE , through the living and enduring word of God.”(1 Peter 1:23)

” For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2Tim 2:7)

I could go on and on with tons of verses, but you have seen with your own eyes that you have a home in heaven and you have eternal, everlasting security by faith in Jesus and nothing will rob you of your place in heaven. Don’t fear death even if you have to lay your life down for your faith because those times are coming and for many already have come. Jesus will never let you go and loves you so.

No matter what happens on this earth; wars or floods or famine or earthquakes or tornado’s or hurricanes or plagues or death or lawlessness or any other thing can separate us from the Love of God and our gift of salvation through Jesus Christ

Let me end this blog with a quote from Jesus: ” And this

is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose NONE of all those He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day.

For it is My Father’s will that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in Him shall have ETERNAL LIFE, and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:39-49)

The Day Your Heart Stops

What will happen the day your heart stops? You know the old saying “your only one heartbeat away from eternity” it won’t matter if you’re a Democrat or Republican or an independent  when that day comes.  Funny, death never crosses the minds of the majority of humanity which now number over Seven Billion souls. Statistics show an estimated death rate of over 150,000 per day die around the world and that number is growing. That’s a lot of people leaving this life on planet earth. So how about you, have you given it any serious thought? You know once you leave there’s no coming back, there’s no second chance, (it’s appointed for man once to die and then judgment) and everything that you’ve done in this life will be rewarded either good or bad Jesus said. We will all reap what we have sowed except for one very important and situation, and that situation is forgiveness by Gods grace through faith. The slate can be wiped clean no matter how many Sins or horrible things a person has done in their lives by one simple act, that is obeying the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. 

Thousands of people will start their day without the smallest inclination that this is their last day on earth. Thousands will go to bed never realizing that they will never wake up again in this life. Still thousands of others have no idea a bomb or a bullet or a knife or trucks or cars or an accident will kill them today. Thousands of others will get the bad reports from their doctor of cancer or some other killing disease will soon take their life. 
Mankind’s hearts are desperately wicked and unless they’re born again by the Spirit of God they will never see heaven, but only the torment of a real place called hell and the lake of fire for eternity. Why? Because they didn’t love the truth, but loved their sins. Their hearts became darkened as they worshiped the Creation rather than the Creator. Their minds seared like a hot iron with sin and wickedness and perversions of every sort. Like wild animals feasting on their prey, pursuing the love of money and drugs and sexual immorality as their only goals. When you read how messed up people will be in the last days, you realize we are there now as the beginning of sorrows has already started. Read your bible, it only gets worse and worse until the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and then a thousand years of peace. Just a few more years and it will be all over. 
Any day or night our time could be up, it may come suddenly or it may be drawn out, but that day is coming and you know it. God does not want anyone to perish He is a God of restoration and that’s why he sent his son Jesus Christ to become flesh and live sinless on this earth and die on the cross shedding His blood as a substitution, as a covering for our sins and he rose again from the dead becoming the first fruits so that we two will rise again in the resurrection. Until then our spirit returns to God in Heaven awaiting that great gettin up morning call the resurrection. 
There is not a single good and perfect person who has lived or is currently living no matter how righteous they may act, and neither are you or me. Our hope is in Christ our redeemer! Don’t let another day another hour go by without repenting of your sins and asking Jesus in your heart to save you. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you and get baptized in the name of the father the son and the Holy Ghost in water as soon as you can. 

The Man in the White Robe 

The man in the white Robe you saw in your dreams 
This man in the white robe wants you to know that He loves you with a love you can barely understand or comprehend. 
This man knows everything about you. He knows your fears and He knows your pain and disappointments in this life. He knows everything about your life from beginning to end, and there is nothing He does does not know about you and your family. You may already suspect who He is, but know nothing about Him. The man in the white robe is Yeshua Jesus Christ the Son of God. He came out of love for He is love, the creator of all things and He obeyed His Father God to come to earth in the form of man for one purpose; to die on the cross and shed His blood for your sins and rise again from the dead. He requires faith that you simply believe that He is the Son of God and repent of your sins and be saved. 
This man you saw in the white robe is the everlasting, only begotten Son of the living God who was, and IS and is to come again. 
His name is Jesus and is the Prince of Peace, He is the Lilly of the Valley, the bright and morning Star. He is the Savior and King of Kings and Lord of Lords, He is eternal glory and will rule for ever and ever in the New Heaven and New Earth and New Jerusalem coming down from heaven above. He wants you and your loved ones to spend eternity with Him and Millions of other believers from every race, tribe and tongue who have received Him as Lord. This man in the white robe appeared to you because He knows your circumstances, how you have been taught lies from others and how dangerous it is to let others know you follow Him. He came to you because men cannot and are blocked by laws and rules and governments to share the gospel truth with you. He came to you because He is the bread of life and with the water He gives you, you will never thirst again. Inside you will find peace and happiness though the world outside is a cruel and evil place. He will never leave you, nor forsake you and His Spirit will live in you forever.

The man in the white robe named Yeshua Jesus Christ loves you so much that He willingly laid down His life for you to pay for your sins and then arose from the dead to live for evermore and so will you as you repent and confess Him as Lord and live for Him. He is the resurrection and the life! 

Three things that are conditional with God

The love of God is inseparable, but His blessings, His protection and prosperity are conditional. That depends on you and how you live. It’s so very true that Gods love for mankind, the human race that He created is without any conditions because God is love and His compassion is new every morning. Regardless of what you may have done yesterday, God in His great mercy and grace will forgive you if you truly repent from your heart and turn away from the sins in your lives that so easily entangle you. The proof of His love is sending His son Jesus to die for you and even the whole world. 
And as for our love for Him, the Bible states that nothing is able to separate us from the love of God. Nothing at all. Romans 8:35 states ” Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 Just as it is written, “FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED.”

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,

39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” So if your born again, you have no need to worry about the love issue.
However; the three things that are conditional I mentioned at the beginning of this blog which are blessings, protection and prosperity are very much connected to your obedience to His commandments and your own personal relationship with God and don’t think they are not. As a Christian think about the times in your life when things were going really well for you and consider how you were living at that time. On the other hand think about the times you have been in bad shape and things were going awful for you in your life and think about how your walk and relationship with the Almighty was at those times in your life. So really you already have the answers just by your own self examination. When Jesus was asked ” what must I do to inherit eternal life” what did Jesus say first? He said ” You know the commandments” So even the “Ten Commandments” apply today to you and me and we all have broken them. To break one is to break them all the Bible says. In other words we better be living the best we can everyday, the best we know how, but today we are not under the Law, but the Law of the Spirit in Jesus Christ. Consider what Romans 8 says: 
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

3 For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,

4 so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

6 For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,

7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,

8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

10 If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

12 So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—

13 for if you are living according to the flesh, you [fn]must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

15 For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”

16 The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,

17 and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Himso that we may also be glorified with Him.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
So walk in the Spirit and God will grant you blessings, protection and prosperity! If not, now you know why…..

The Expression on their Faces bears witness against them 

Today around the world and especially in America marches and rebellions of hate against government leaders and against law and order trying to stop freedom of speech for anyone disagreeing are openly sinning against God and humanity in vulgar wicked squealing and offensive cursing and hand gestures even in the presence of their own children and in public places. This will have grave consequences for those rebelling, not from other men, but from a righteous and holy Father in heaven who will, if not sooner or in their lifetime, surly judge them now or in the Great White Throne Judgment at the end of time. 

Listen to what Isaiah writes in chapter 3 “……Because their speech and their actions are against the Lord to rebel against His glorious presence, the expression of their faces bears witness against them. And they display their sin like Sodom, they do not even conceal it. Wow to them! For they have brought evil on themselves.

Say to the righteous that it will go well with them. For they eat the fruit of their actions. Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with them, for what he deserves will be done to him.” 
“Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”(1 Samuel 15:23) The far left tout phrases like “resist” or “rebel” having no fear for the sins they are committing. Rioting and destroying property, lighting fires and beating innocent people for no reason but the hate and anger spewing out from their wicked hearts. Killings and murders will occur in the future if this rebellion is not halted. The streets of America could turn into a giant civil war zone. 
And right in step with them all is the liberal main stream media covering up the wickedness happening around the world for the sake of the globalist new world agenda who want want total open borders and trade and could care less about the safety of the people. Intertwined is the entertainment industry whose stars are worshiped by deceived multitudes and follow their blaspheming ways and homosexual agenda. Who could believe a homosexual movie or a coming of age movie as they like to call it would win the Oscar for best picture? The arrogance of limo riding millionaires stated by one ” We actors are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.” Really? That statement is way over the top. Forget about the rest of the labor force and society and living a clean and respectful lives believing in the one and only creator living a quiet and peaceful and fulfilling live here on earth. Never mind celebrating the life of teachers or preachers or plumbers or doctors or managers or anyone else for that matter, such a lie full of pride and straight from a demons mouth. 
The sins of the world and false religion are out in the open and quite evident for all to see except those dark hearts who have been blinded by Satan who will kill and destroy them in the end. These people are the same ones fooled by Islam who will eventually control every nation not by war but by over breeding and take over from within. Their dull minds never consider most of Europe is already lost and America is barely hanging on thanks to the Mexican birth rate here. The average Muslim woman has 8.1 children against non-Muslim races of 1.6 worldwide. Do the math! In a very few short years Muslims will over populate the United States and take control if refugees continue to flow into the country. Is this what you want for your kids and grandkids? No, but the blinders of the left refuse to see what’s really taking place. Their own families are at risk. 
Corruption is everywhere in all governments and increasing rapidly. Even formerly true religions are openly committing apostasy. Recently the Pope of the Catholic Church worldwide refused to prosecute paedophile priest who have committed tremendous atrocities against children. And the pizza gate worldwide ring has been hushed up by the main stream media. Child trafficking around the world is at an all time high and little by little being exposed. Sexual slavery by the elite around the world in every country is also being exposed. Everything will be brought to light eventually. Witches are openly holding curse gathering against the President and post meetings online on social media. Evil is warring against good and lines are being drawn everywhere. 
If there’s ever been a time to pray for America and the world it’s now. The battle rages for the souls of people and nations, but we know the ending of this story, God wins and just when it looks like good is defeated, Jesus will return and slay the wicked and set up His reign for a thousand years. Until then Christians are in a war, a spiritual war, not against flesh and blood,but against evil in high places and principalities whose influence on evil men and women throughout society and media and entertainment and governments must be stopped by the Spirit of God working through believers who pray and exercise their faith in God. For those who repent and follow Jesus there is hope and salvation that only comes through faith in the one and only Son of God who loves them…

Jesus has always lived

Many people have heard that Jesus is the Son of God and was born of the virgin Mary. But how many stop and realize that He was with the Father before He took on the form of human flesh?Many references in the old testament speak of the coming Messiah. I’d like to show a couple that prove He was with the Father from The days of eternity. In the Old Testament (or the first covenant) in the book of Micah chapter 5 it reads; “But I asked for you Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go forth from Me to be the ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity.” Therefore He will give them up until the time when she who is in labor has born a child. Here we see that Messiah Jesus Christ came from the days of eternity and was with the father all the time. When the prophesied time came, God the father put Him in the belly of Mary as human flesh and He gave up his dwelling place in heaven with the father to become a man and become our propitiation (our sacrifice ) the one who takes our place to save us from our sins. Jesus obeyed the father and did this willingly out of pure agape love, love that man cannot comprehend or understand until he is born again. 
 “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us, and the government will rest upon His shoulders and His name will be called wonderful Counselor, mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of peace; there will be no end to the increase of his government or of peace, On the throne of David and over His kingdom to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forever more.” Here we see in the statement He is Eternal Father, Prince of peace. Jesus is eternal and one with the Father, has always been and always will be. The kingdom in this passage refers to the kingdom of God that Jesus set up when He came and lived among us died and was resurrected. The kingdom of God is forever and ever and ever.
 In Exodus 3:2 Messiah Jesus is called the angel of the Lord and it is He who appeared in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush that Moses saw, the bush that did not burn up or was consumed. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 
Turning to the new testament or new covenant in John chapter 8 verse 57,58 Jesus speaking to the Jews said “your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day and he saw it and was glad.” So the Jews said to him you are not yet 50 years old and you have you seen Abraham?” Jesus said to them “truly truly I say to you before Abraham was born I am.” So here Jesus himself says that he was around way before Abraham was even born in the heavens with the father and the angels. Notice he said before Abraham was Born “I Am.” The very same phrase that Moses heard from the burning bush when he asked God who shall I say that sent me and God says I am that I am, tell them I am sent you. 
Looking further in John chapter 1 we read “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God He was in the beginning with God, all things came into being through Him and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. Here we see the messiah Jesus Christ is the living word of God and that every thing that has ever been created or come into existence was created through him. Messiah Jesus Christ the Only begotten Son of the living God is the voice of the Father. It goes on to say that He is the light of the world and as many as received Him to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name who are born not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man but of God. “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. They saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. For the law was given through Moses grace and truth we realized through Jesus Christ. Now if Jesus is the only begotten Son of God then there can be no other, no other God at all, no other name under heaven in which we must be saved! No one has seen God at any time the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father He has explained Him. God is spirit, no man has ever seen God in his existence, his spirit being. Yet He assumed visible form which men saw in Old Testament times and in Jesus, man could see God. Christ gives life He gives grace and truth. John the Baptist stated “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” and in him messiah Jesus Christ we live and move and have our being (exist)for we are his offspring (children), born again by the Spirit of God.
This my friends is why Jesus says I am the way the truth and the life and no man can come to the father except by me. This my friends is also why Christianity is the right way because only Christianity has the Son of God Jesus Christ as the cornerstone for salvation. Without him Jesus you cannot know the Father, you cannot come to the Father, you cannot be saved and born of the spirit and you’ll be lost. If you put your trust in other gods like Allah or Buddha or Hinduism or any other false god, you cannot be born again and go to heaven and know the only true God, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Jesus said you must be born again. For the wind blows and you hear the sound of it but do not know where it comes from or where it is going, so is everyone born of the Spirit of God. This my friends is why there so much hatred against Christians and Christianity and in the name of Jesus and the cross; because it is the only way to heaven period. The demons of hell blind those souls so they won’t be saved. But to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ you shall be saved and the scales will fall off of your eyes. That’s God’s promise. Allah doesn’t love you, Buddha doesn’t love you nor any other false gods of hundreds of other religions. Those religions want domination by rules and works, but Jesus really does love you. God the Father really does love you. The One true God doesn’t want sacrifice of yourself or your life. He says don’t you know “I require mercy and not sacrifice?” Jesus said the Father and I are One and if you have seen me, you have seen the Father. Jesus is the perfect representation of the father. You must be born again to see the kingdom of heaven. Are you born again? You have the witness within yourself. If your not then repent of your sins, believe that Jesus is Gods Son and died in your place, give your life to Him and get baptized as He commanded. He will not leave you as orphans but will come to you when you call upon his name. Do it today do it now, come into His kingdom and we’ll meet in heaven…..

“The connection” How Jesus speaks to people personality today and why it’s impossible for Him to ever leave you or forsake you.

“The Connection” How Jesus speaks to people personality today and why it’s Impossible for Him to ever leave you or forsake you. 
The profound statements Jesus made to us are mind blowing to say the least for unbelievers and questionable to thousands of Christians whose faith is weak and although they believe, they have so much unbelief on this very critical subject; they refuse to believe that God talks to humans personally today?
The answer is so simple and easy to understand, but the problem comes in when people just throw away their faith and accept their unbelief because they were taught wrongly. Some preacher or some church told them the lies that God doesn’t speak to people today. Nothing could further from the truth. To say I did not struggle with this very same doubt would be a lie, but eventually “I got it” just like you or any other Christian believer can “get it” if they will open their heart, accept that truths of the Bible and actually believe “God is not a man that He could lie” ( Numbers 23:19) So what is written is truth and it’s time to throw away all those doubts and false teachings and believe what Jesus said, not what some deceived teacher or teaching taught you. 
Looking at just a couple of statements In the Bible, let’s start with this one: Jesus said ” My Sheep HEAR MY VOICE and I know them and they follow me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father who has given them to me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of my Fathers hand. I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE.”(John 10:27) Look out, the lying demons will whisper in you ear that’s not true. Look out, your deceitful heart will tell you no way, not possible. Look out, deception is everywhere coming from all directions. The Bible is true today and demons and deceived people lie. 

God did not stop speaking to people when the Apostles died, that’s the favorite lie Satan tells people and deceived Christians, yes deceived, believe those lies. Why? Because they have never heard God’s voice speaking to them. Why? Reason number one they are not born again at all, just religious.the second reason is doubt and unbelief. Reason number three is they don’t listen. They will believe God speaks through circumstances or events in their lives, but to hear Him actually speak to them personality, no way. I was once a bonehead, stubborn, full of pride and unbelief and doubt, but by now I have heard God speak to me personality many many times and so can you if you drop your stubbornness and unbelief. 
Here’s the simple truth: “God is Spirit” and when you obey the gospel which is Repent from your heart of all your sins, Forgive everyone who has hurt you, Believe in your heart Jesus is the Son of God and was raised from the dead, confess Him out loud and to others, following Him by getting baptized as He commanded, and seeking the Holy Spirits filling, loving God and people and doing your best to live for God. This pretty much sums up the gospel, but obviously not all of it. Now at the moment you believe from the heart and repent and confess Jesus the Holy Spirit enters you and stays forever. “Do you not know your body is the temple of God?” So Gods Spirit comes to live in you and seals your spirit until the day of redemption.(Ephesians 4:30) you receive Jesus by the Holy Spirit, not by baptism. 
John the Baptist said “I baptize you with water but He (Jesus) who is coming after me shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and Fire.” Have you asked Jesus to baptize you with the Holy Spirit? So the Spirit is with you always, even through death of the body and on into the afterlife in heaven. And Jesus said ” I will never leave you nor forsake you.” His spirit is always there inside of you, remember you are the temple of the Holy Spirit and it is Impossible for Jesus ever to leave you, ever! All born again believers have God the Holy Spirit living inside them forever. He lives in you by the Spirit! Remember God is Spirit and Jesus and the Father are one. Now again Jesus said “MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE.” We hear his voice FROM HIS SPIRIT TO OUR SPIRIT and He talks to us TODAY, in 2016 and beyond, and forever! It’s a still small voice and is never condemning. It’s never a head thought per se, but you hear Him from your belly/chest area and the voice moves up to your mind, softly and very quickly. Again never directly to your mind and never negative, but sometimes correcting. 
Christians who say God has never spoken to them are either not born again at all (because the Spirit takes up residence in every believer) or they are living in a backslidden condition either practicing sin or allowing unconfessed sin to reside in their lives, in which case communication is cut off and one in that state can not expect to hear God speaking to them. Another reason could be they just flat don’t listen or cannot discern the voice of God because they have no quite time or prayer life with God; however, Jesus said “THEY HEAR MY VOICE.” So now that’s a problem. Everyone should seek God and make sure they are born again of the Spirit in this case, notice I didn’t say memorize your doctrine, be religious and pious in which case you’ll never hear a thing from God. Humble yourself and seek Him with all your heart. 
In summary, God speaks today to every born again believer by His Spirit to The Holy Spirit that resides in your temple; your body. Jesus can never leave you or forsake you because He is always there inside of you by the Spirit. Which also means when you pray the Holy Spirit in you has direct communication with God who is Spirit and He hears your prayers….The world hates us because they hate Jesus and the Father and His Spirit lives in us always…..
