3 John 8:47 says, "He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."

4 1.GOD SPEAKS IN DIFFERENT WAYS Hebrews 1:1 says, "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways." Angels (Gen 16) Visions (Gen 15) Dreams (Gen 28:10-19) Symbolic actions (Jer 18:1-10 A Gentle whisper (1 Kings 19:12) Miraculous signs (Ex. 8:20-25)

5 4 important factors come into play here as we look at the Old Testament  First, when God spoke, it was usually unique to that individual.  Second, when God spoke, the person was sure God was speaking.  Third, when God spoke the person knew precisely what God said.  Fourth, when God spoke, that was the encounter with God.

6 2. GOD SPEAKS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT “An encounter with the Holy Spirit is an encounter with God.” John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

7 3. God Reveals “God reveals His purposes so you will know what He plans to do.” “Planning is a good thing to do if it is motivated and guided by God.” “God want’s us to follow Him daily, not just follow a plan.”

8 4. GOD SPEAKS THROUGH THE BIBLE

9 5. God Speaks Through Prayer
