As Jesus spoke to the early disciples – so now the Spirit (Holy Spirit or Ruach Elohim) speaks to us through the Scriptures. It is the covenant of God (Word of Truth), the God of Truth (Elohim Emet), and the testimony of Christ Jesus (HaMashiach Yeshua), the Son of God (Ben Elohim)

1 Corinthians 2:9-16 (NIV)

9 However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him” — 10 but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 14 The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment: 16 “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

If we keep choosing to walk and live in our own wisdom, knowledge and understanding (not loosing yourself from this world), then we will miss out on what God our Fathers Truth is, not what we think it is or have learned. This is the true way to learn what is of the Spirit, and what is not of man, and mans thinking (of this world), as this is deception and will only lead and guide us further away from God our Fathers love and truth, just as testimony of Christ Jesus. Your free will choices should be of choosing God our Father through Christ Jesus, not of man (this world, which is of fleshly things, ideals, views, and false doctrine).

This my brothers and sisters will set you free. It is your own free will choices through your soul that puts you into grace or oppression and bondage, which spiritual oppression and bondage following from soulful oppression and bondage. Thus why we need to firm our feet and defend and protect our souls, as it is vulnerable to our own destruction and then we miss out on one of the greatest things ever possible, our Fathers love.

My brothers and sisters, being believers, lost souls, or unbelievers..... I ask with sincere heart, please do not make this into a debate or thrash it with foolishness. It comes from our Fathers Covenant (the Word of Truth), testimony of Christ Jesus, from the Spirit, so the truth lies in this and cannot be debated, and if you do not believe it, then ask Him, not me. He has all the answers, as I am just a mere mortal man, a vessel of the Spirit.


I say amen and Hallelujah to God my Father, Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit


.....Shalom achi, akhoti. Sheh-Elohim yivarech otach!

(Peace and blessing be upon you my brothers, my sisters. God be with you!)

we have Jehovah God's Holy Spirit, when we try hard to live right, or a way pleasing to him. our good thoughts, and actions are because God gives us the intelligence to do right. when we do, in every way, it's because of him helping us to do so. when we don't we then allow satan to push Jehovah's goodness away, we ALL have those bad says. Jehovah's HS also helps lead us in the right direction. sometimes being imperfect we do tend to go the way we choose. which often lead us to some form of heartache.
many believe they hear Jesus speaking to them, they wrong. that doesn't happen anymore. well...at least, it's not Jesus who's doing the speaking. satan does this so that many will feel they're living right by ...Jesus, some believe god. even though those same ones, KNOW they're living in some way a life NOT pleasing to ...Jesus. so again Jehovah's...HS leads us the right way, by our righteous thoughts.peace

Jesus said in John 14: 23-27....... ``If a man love me, he will keep my words, and my Father will love him and we will come to him , and make our abode with Him....But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance what so ever I have said to you...Peace I leave with you , my peace I give you, not as the world gives , give I to you Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid ...``....... See Holy Spirit does teach believers gifts and calling of Jesus through Jesus Words , and does comfort believers to keep into the faith and fortitude of the Lord , ...Where the devil can agitate believers to worry, and fall from belief , Holy Spirit will counter this force ,with Words of hope in Christ , and with Prayer of Jesus blood believers make, Holy Spirit will rip the devil out of believers faces...

The HOly Spirit only speaks through the word of God.

Ro 10:17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

Mainly by desire.

Nathan replied to the king, "Whatever you have in mind, go ahead and do it, for the LORD is with you.". 2 Sam 7:3

Yes and amen to this truth!! Key word here is "THROUGH" the Word of God. Not of our own understanding or the understanding of this world. It is only "THROUGH" the Spirit will the Truth be revealed/manifested. Thus why we need to "Be Still"

It is said...

8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light, for it is light that makes everything visible. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”


15 Be very careful, then, how you live —not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"The only separation the Gospel (Gods Word of Truth) knows is between believers on one hand and the unbelievers on the other. Any other kind of separation, division, disunity, is of the devil. It is evil and from sin."

"When the body of Christ doesn't work to build unity, the world sees a sick and weakly church. But when we join together in unity, the world sees the power and glory of Christ Jesus shining through us."

....Shalom

God will speak to us through several ways but the basis of him speaking to us is when the word of God within us the word which we have hidden within us can be of use to us. No word within us. Jesus said the words that i speak unto you are spirit and they are life....

When we allow the word to marinate us, He will speak to us

Ruach is (breath,wind,Elohim) in hebrew it has a female connotation although to be accurate that is debated since all hebrew tends to be gender neutral. If one really studies intensely and exhaustingly you may conclude that one of God's three manifestation is "female" or " she" (Holy Spirit) completing the "family" Father Son and mother" The strongest evidence might be perhaps found in the Hebrew to Greek translation whereby "he" might have been inaccurately transcribed since Ruach is female? This lineage from God was missed by king James and others if true. Chew on this for now I'm still a "he" man.
