Can God Talk to You?
Free to Share
Author Neale Donald Walsch in his popular book called, “Conversations with God,” said he heard God talking to him.
Some folks believe this is just ‘new age’ quackery. What does it mean? I don’t have a negative feeling about those two words, just some puzzlement.
Many people believe it has something to do with the occult, I’m not so sure. Does it mean we should throw away all our basic beliefs and take up a new thought? I don’t think so. Could ‘new age’ bring an understanding?
Can we be enlightened by a supernatural event that has been simmering in the Bible for years and requires us to search it out? I have more questions than answers.
I became concerned when Donald Walsch said the voice spoke to him first from across the room.
He said,‘this voice’ mentioned the scriptures and the Bible were just another means of knowing!
Okay, but I believe it’s more than that.
In the first chapter the author writes, “. . . the pen began moving on its own,” and on page 2, he said, “. . . I was not writing so much as taking dictation.” I think that’s called automatic handwriting. So, what’s going on here?
I wrote an article regarding my search for answers. My story begins, 'Lightening from the sky striking the earth could not have had more of an impact on my life.'
To this day I have no recollection why I began reading, ‘The Challenging Counterfeit,’ by Raphael Gasson. Maybe I was just curious and maybe God’s plan was about to unfold. I did find the answer and it will be explained in my next article. This was the occult.
I came to the conclusion it did fit in with my research into the supernatural.
Raised in a Baptist Church and graduated from a Baptist College, I get a little skeptical at times. I’m not saying God did not speak to Donald Walsch. What I am saying is that I have an open mind toward new ideas.
There are extreme situations which happen to people on occasion that I would question. I know from my own personal experience, the voice of the Lord can be heard in many ways.
On March 1, 2001 at 7:25 p.m. I was in spiritual meditation.
I was ‘thinking’ something about, how would the world know about HIM.
Lord said to me, “He would let the whole world know that it is written.” [in the Bible].
Thought to myself, “Is this conversation time?”
I stopped talking/thinking because I never had this kind of communication for an extended time.
HE said, “You’re not talking.”
“What shall we talk about?”
HE said, “You pick the topic.”
God - “What do you want to know about rainbows?”
“How do you make them?”
God - “I just think them into existence!”
“I thought I was going to get some long complicated answer,” I replied.
God – “Not from me!”
Now for the debate. Did this information come from me or from God?
When evaluating a person and what they say and believe, I would have to look at how they live their life.
I know the best way to hear from God is to read the Bible. He speaks in-between the silence of the written words.
All the Answers and Power we need are contained in the scriptures.
How to find them is the question!
