God speaks!

4 11 2011

When we believe on the Lord Jesus, we are saved – Acts 16:31. What saves us? The life of Another saves us – Rom 5:10. This life does not live separate or apart from Christ or the believer. This life is the life of Christ, and Christ lives in us – 1 Jn 5:11. Christ in us is life to and in us. Apart from Christ there is no life.

Gal 2:20 KJV I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:

Because Christ lives in every believer, He also speaks in every believer! Christ cannot speak apart from the believer He lives in. The believer is Christ’s body. We are His hands, His feet, His ears, His eyes and His mouth. People easily believe that we are Christ’s hands and feet, but struggle with the idea that we are His mouth! Let’s look at some verses to understand this awesome reality!!!

Mat 10:20 KJV For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

Not “speaks to you” but “speaks in you.” In other words, the Person Who speaks inside my voice is the Holy Ghost, so it isn’t my words at all.

Look at the next 2 verses and notice the highlighted language in particular.

Joh 1:23 KJV He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, …..

Isa 40:3 KJV The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, ……

John wasn’t the one who cried, he was the merely the voice of Someone who cried!! He was the voice of God. The One who cried was the Holy Ghost inside him. He was just the voice, and out through that voice came that mighty word. God was the One crying in Him!!!!!!! Do you see it? God in Him was crying, not John the Baptist. It was not John, it was God. God used John’s body, his vocal chords and his lips to cry out! How AMAZING is this? John didn’t speak in God’s voice, he spoke as John spoke, with the same tone and accent as John normally spoke.

God speaking through John is no different to how He speaks today. Christ in us is God in us. Christ speaks through us ‘as us’*. He doesn’t take hold of our bodies like we see demons do in thrillers, Christ in us speaks as us. People will not notice that it is Christ speaking, they will hear your voice, but Life will flow out of you as Words. Christ the Living Word…….

In closing:

Joh 3:34 KJV For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

Joh 14:10 KJV Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
