Before They Call, I Will Answer!!

Isaiah 65:24 NKJV

24 “It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.

Who Is God Speaking To In This Verse?  You?  Me?  Everyone of us!!!

There are people that will travel hours or even halfway across the world with hopes of getting the answer to a prayer or a revelation from God by one of His “anointed ministers.” There definitely are people who have spent time set apart unto God, His Word, in Prayer and live consecrated lives because they want nothing to inhibit or quench communication with The Holy Spirit of Almighty God.

We are told in the Bible that God is “No Respecter of Persons” but if you read in the gospels there are a few names that keep coming up, Peter, James and John. Did Jesus often take Peter, James and John with Him because they were His favorites or because they just stayed close to Jesus.  Like it is with our children or grandchildren.  How can you not feel closer to the ones who make it evident they love being with you any chance they get.

We can see God moving someone who is desiring to serve God thinking “it’s not going well” (but it is going exactly as God desires) and at the same time bring in a new believer by placing questions in his mind that God had every intention to answer, thus confirming, I Am God, I Am Watching, I Am Aware of this moment of your life, your unborn child’s life and it’s mother’s life.

God desires closeness and communication with all His children and even before we seek to get serious with Him, He is trying to get our attention for us to realize He is doing “things” for us to notice Him. The Bible says

John 6:43-44 NKJV  43 Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

If you read in my blog, “Moved By The Holy Ghost To Pray,” little ten-year-old girl, Ruth, prayed with the usual blunt consciousness of our African children. “Please, God,” she prayed, “send us a water bottle. It’ll be no good tomorrow, God, the baby’ll be dead; so, please send it this afternoon. …And while You are about it, would You please send a dolly for the little girl so she’ll know You really love her?”

God did answer that prayer exactly for what Ruth spoke even though the package was packed and shipped 5 months before Ruth prayed it proving the Holy Spirit put the words in Ruth’s mind and mouth. Ruth in her innocent childlike faith was as much a vessel used by God to reveal His Mighty Love and Provision as any consecrated minister.

If we are one of God’s children desiring to draw closer to Him, (a desire He puts in us) it should not surprise us that often times we realize something we said or have done, did not originate in our consciousness but was a thought planted in our mind by the Holy Spirit.

Apostle Paul said clearly,

Philippians 2:5  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

1 Corinthians 2:16   For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?”But we have the mind of Christ.

Romans 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

A prayer we should always pray is that we would hear the voice of God, know His will for our life and be led by His Holy Spirit.

It’s happening all around us every day for good and for bad. There are no “free agents” in life.

Luke 9:50  But Jesus said to him, “Do not forbid him, for he who is not against us is on our side.”

Spirits are at work trying to influence our thoughts way more often than we consider. We must plead the Blood of Jesus to protect us and everyone we pray daily for. Paul is not joking when he says this in Ephesians. A real battle is going on if we are aware of it or not, the battle is raging for our soul and those around us.

Ephesians 6:10- 13  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Some people think they can ride the fence, be neutral and just stay out of the fight. It’s not possible, silence is consent. Jesus said it this way, “If you’re not for me, you are against me.”

From Matthew 25:31–46: “But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

Desire and pray to be used by God, led by His Holy Spirit and truly be the “body of Christ” on the Earth as we should be, every one of us. When the confirmation comes and you realize God did something through you be Thankful, Humble and continue to desire and pray to be used again. God working through us individually, the church, should be the norm. God can speak through a donkey as He had to do with Balaam, don’t get puffed up in pride just because God used you. For me personally, when I realize that has happened, it is one of the most humbling things and I think of this scripture,

1 Corinthians 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Jesus commended the church of Ephesus in the Book of Revelations 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

But to the church of Pergamos said, 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate,

Nicolaitans means “destruction of people” and “conqueror of the people.” God as Peter well said desires the body of Christ to be “Kings and Priests” every one of us. We’re not supposed to look for our spiritual leader in a mortal man. That’s why God didn’t want Israel to have a king. When they begged He gave them Saul who’s name means “asked or desired.” They rebelled against God so He gave them a rebellious king. Once it was established, God desired David and men like David to be a shepherd to His people. Jesus is our King, Now and Forever!!!

The five fold ministry has a definite role for the equiping and perfecting of the saints of God. I thank Jesus for the preachers that He has led me to learn sound biblical principles and to righty divide His word. Chasing after “anointed super star ministers” is just wrong. Be a Berean, learn to seek God, pray and be the priest over your realm of influence.

Jesus rebuked the Pharassies for giving honor where honor is not due.

John 5:43-44   I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. 44 How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God?

Preaching or teaching that never or rarely exalts Jesus should be avoided. Flee from those who attempt to put Jesus on the same level or worth of every other world religious super star, idol, or God. If “COEXIST” is right then Jesus isn’t the ONLY WAY.

Jesus IS THE ONLY WAY to God our Heavenly Father.

John 14:6  Jesus said to him, “I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father EXCEPT through Me.

COEXIST says Jesus is just “another way to god.” That’s Right, little g
