“How To Recognize God’s Voice Speaking to You” ~ Graham Cooke
“Thought cannot comprehend what is beyond thought.” – Adyashanti
“I cannot imagine how religious persons can live satisfied without the practice of the presence of GOD. For my part I keep myself retired with Him in the depth of centre of my soul as much as I can; and while I am so with Him I fear nothing; but the least turning from Him is insupportable.”
― Brother Lawrence
, The Practice of the Presence of God
Extra-biblical teaching. (Not ‘anti’-biblical.)
There is not a yogi or Hermetic Scientist, a mystic or any sort of seer who does not experience voices and ageless wisdom refers to the still small voice. We know that initiates beyond a certain level of Zelator advancement are endowed with various levels of telepathic ability. Even the wise hear pedestrian chatter. It is for those who possess the necessary discrimination to separate what is worth listening to and what is not.
THE WAY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
This is the way of the Holy Spirit: to teach us “from within” first [and, ultimately, last also] and, then, have that “teaching” [instruction] or experience confirmed by others in the Body of Christ. He is the ultimate Teacher! Those in “delegated authority” [of the true variety] are simply vessels of the Holy Spirit [love and wisdom] who sow the “necessary” seeds in the proper time and “oversee” [water and nourish] that seed [in and by the Holy Spirit] until it comes forth into its full fruition: a “vessel” filled with the revelation knowledge and divine wisdom that is the “prerequisite” and beginning of all true Kingdom-service and ministry – whatever that may be in each individual case.
This is a time wherein we must continually be found walking in [acting upon] every last ray of “light” [revelation] that abides deep within our hearts. In other words, we need to abide in that place of intimate fellowship with the Father and His Word wherein we are continually doing all that we KNOW to do in a perfect obedience. “Perfect obedience” in the Father’s eyes constitutes one first receiving a “revelation” from the Throne Room in the “inner chamber” and, THEN moving by the “unction” [timing] of the Holy Spirit at ALL times. This is nothing for the faithful heart to get into fear over, for when the child of God is “continually” filling their heart with the Word and, thus, “praying without ceasing” [this simply means to be in constant communion with the Father and His Word by “acknowledging” them in ALL our ways] they shall surely come to abide in that place of a heart “wholly given”.
….”The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] …… If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home [abode, special dwelling place] with him”…. John 14:21-23 The Amplified Translation
Workers at the Western Wall removed the notes placed in the cracks by worshipers in advance of Passover.
The notes were removed Wednesday morning under the supervision of the rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinovich. They will be buried in the Mount of Olives cemetery in Jerusalem.

“I don’t think faith has anything to be afraid of with science. Science validates faith.”
“The Lord says, listen for My voice. I speak to you in various ways. I speak in dreams, I speak in visions, I speak in nature, I speak through your circumstances, I even speak to you in your trials. As you go to sleep at night with expectation, you will be more receptive to hear from Me in your dreams. As you quiet your mind and posture yourself in an attitude of prayer, you will learn how to hear and become more sensitive to My voice when you pray. As you prepare yourself by conforming to My ways, renewing your mind and attending to My words you will become more attuned to My voice. When you free your mind from the cares of this world you will begin to hear with more clarity. As you read My word and meditate upon it, you will begin to discern My plans for you. As you lift your voice to Me in praise and worship, you will begin to hear Me in the song, and you will begin to rise above your circumstances and rest in My presence.””As you go about your day, listen for My voice in your traveling. I will speak to you on your jobs, and even as you are shopping. Seek Me with expectation throughout your day knowing that I will speak to you. Learn how to recognize My voice through other people. Learn to recognize My voice for solutions to your problems. Learn to recognize My voice in all the affairs of your life. I will give you the answers to the questions and concerns that you have. My voice releases authority. My voice brings direction. My voice brings instruction. My voice brings transformation. My voice brings healing. My voice brings deliverance. Allow Me to remove anything that may be hindering you from hearing My voice. Stay sensitive to My voice of correction. As you continually submit and surrender totally to Me, you will be able to hear with more clarity. Know that it is My desire to speak to you as My bride in covenant with Me says the Lord.”John 14:17 The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.John 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.John 16:27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
We have to learn to tolerate the notion that two conflicting premises can be true. This is discipline, and it’s necessary for learning new truth. As we progress to truth within a given discipline, our databank of other paradigms must necessarily conflict, with the new knowledge in a related file. I think freedom will mean, in part, that we will accept new truth solely by spiritual revelation, and remain unaware of any distortion; no dissonance, neither cognitive nor emotional. We’ll just be peaceful and wait until more new ideas fill in the gaps of our old understanding. It will be great to live that way. It will be very innocent and childlike. We’ll see magic every day. (Magic being the occurrence of something, that one believes to be impossible.)
The Enemy does everything he can to try and convince us [through outward
circumstances and pressures] that what the Holy Spirit has revealed to our heart
was just a figment of our imagination. Many times I have received revelation in
the presence of the Lord but once I got out into the daily routine – or in the midst
of those who were carrying around unbelief, fear etc. – the Enemy immediately
tried to convince me that it was not really a revelation from God. This is one
reason why it is so important to write down or record in some way anything we
receive when we are “clearly” in the presence of the Lord.
“All thought is not the same. There is random static. There is repetitious and circular rumination. There is thought devoted to solving a problem or analyzing a situation. There is thought that occurs when one is creating something that never existed before. To blithely say that “externally inserted” mind control can replace all levels of thinking without a person being aware of what is going on is foolish.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
“Though we don’t realise it, we go through our lives detecting just the gist of what’s going on. Even if we wanted to pay attention to each answer, we would have a limited capacity” to do so. Another, related reason is that when people are listening to a speaker, they are taking in nonverbal signals such as body language, facial expressions, and likability. In short, even when doing something as simple as listening to a speaker, the audience is overwhelmed by information, enabling politicians to dodge answers without appearing to.”
” The key practice is – however you manage to do it – to cultivate a centre of attention in yourself. You can do this right now, by closing your eyes and sitting attentively for a few minutes. At first you let your attention go to your bodily sensations, however they present themselves: sensations of the feet on the floor, your back against the chair, and so on. Then you let your attention go to the flow of thoughts, images, and emotions that pass before the mind’s eye. You will soon realise that you can watch these thoughts come into awareness like images on a screen, and pass away again just as readily.”

We must note every possible detail of every moment. We must record them for times when outsiders attempt to change our memories or our reality. We should record things so we can check our memory. (If you’re not ever going to help me fight, at least protect yourself as long as you can.) Eventually, you MUST move into the Spirit to keep ahead of the monsters. You will have an opportunity to move into what seems science fiction, into the actual natural, supernatural. This is where we are supposed to live, and where the survivors will. “It’s a new army. We’re all adjusting.” (Sgt. Bilko, Dan Akroyd)
“Attention spans and strong wills are dwindling down, right along with the immune systems, fertility rates and creativity. The mojo, zest, and the spontaneity of existence has been beaten out in the name of conformism and political correctness. We have forgotten too much in order to start over right, so we are at the breaking point; it’s now or never. We are facing the next mass extinction event, and it would not be statistically unsound to consider it. In fact, the only reason most of us don’t is because they don’t talk about it honestly in the media if at all, and we don’t really like to think about it.”
” The only thing that will allow us to stand up and take action is to realise that are at an unprecedented point in history to do something about it. That, or whatever else makes you feel alive and gets your creative juices flowing.”
“If you’re not up to date on all that yet, now would be a good time. It’s no use to complain, though. It’s also no use to protest, or to shout, or to self-implode. It’s even less useful to distract yourself with Facebook, Twitter and how much protein you had today, or how much weight you lifted. It’s less useful still, to keep fighting amongst yourselves, in seeing who is prettier, stronger, has better moves or more creative prose. You have one other option- one last option- you can evolve.”
“You will need to monitor the input that comes in and out of your lightbody, and develop an impeccable warrior’s will and intent on how to use it to create and navigate through this reality. There is a crack right now, a window of opportunity where you can pry yourself into the void and learn a whole lot, very quickly. ” (I said that years ago. The newbies will far outrun us…but they will also need us.)
“Remember not to impose any change on others, for their place is a catalyst to yours and vice-versa. We need as many points of awareness as possible on all levels to keep this great self evolving and as we may derive as much benefit from simply understanding others as much as we would from any change in the outside world.”

One thing that helped me a lot when I was hearing artificial thoughts was to have a praise song always prepared. “To God be the Glory…
“Reality is a psychological operation.” (Jon Rappaport)
“If you take time to read the gospels, you will find that based on some of this proper etiquette, Jesus would probably not be on our guest list for dinner. Why? He was a dinner guest (and host) who didn’t mince words if something took place that he didn’t like. He addressed situations right away without concern for who might feel offended.”
Henry Gruver taught me how to prayer-walk. Listen to the first five minutes.
I know some very important truth. I’ve been trying to get attention to this issue for years and I can’t think of much else I could do. I’ve written letters and and articles and poems. I made phone calls to support groups. I put flyers under windshield wipers and nailed my controversy to the churchhouse door. I spray-painted words on the snow in front of my dad’s office. I dyed my hair red and started drinking beer! (People are talking about how I drink a lot and stood on my head. My mom was screaming, accusing me of being drunk so I stood on my head to prove I wasn’t. I get too dramatic…) My life is full of paradoxes and I can certainly understand that my behaviors might appear to contradict. I can’t hope to explain doctrinal distinctions to people who do not even believe God can talk to us. (There’s a REAL contradiction: the same God who raises dead bodies …can’t communicate with living ones!) “A paradox is truth standing on its head trying to attract attention.”
I was being immobilized every day, vomiting, unable to move. (My blog includes articles describing the effects of microwave weaponry, and my journals document identical experiences. Except itchy eyeballs.) Then I was hacked by a moral atheist and given some important truth and I no longer threw up! I was my usual hyper-active self! I wanted to fix everything, especially the family who had languished while I was incapacitated. So I went to my father for help. Instead of receiving assistance, I was followed, hunted, set-up, reviled, reported, encouraged to behave in a crazy manner, ridiculed, threatened and my concerns for my children were ignored.
My Christian parents did not respond to a single letter I wrote, did not return phone calls or emails for more than two years. They did not express sympathy for my family although they knew we were suffering. Lies isolated me from all family. My father still has not asked what I accuse him of doing. He has never asked. Nobody has asked to see my evidence of organized gangstalking and electronic torture. Yet, I’ve been cursed and maligned. Herein, another paradox.
My truth is very important for everybody, but it’s incomplete. Truth is Jesus and Jesus is a body with many members. Without everybody’s input, we don’t see him completely. I’ve sought answers for about five years, since the torture began. Every time I’m given another piece of the puzzle, I’m astonished and grateful at how well God prepared me and guided me. My mom recently gave me a bit of truth, about a friend. Several years ago God told me to discontinue communication with my dear friend, or we would hate each other. I do not choose to hate anybody and God has seen to it that I don’t. So far. (“Lord do not allow me to rise up and do not let me make even one mistake. Please help your people, we must get the world out of our heads, and get our faith out of the world. Amen.”)
“If you want friends in the invisible you have to go about your life as if they were there, regardless of evidence to that account. You also have to behave according to their standards.”
I just woke up. After my mom told me about Margaret I slept better than I have for five years. If she could have just talked to me…whatever. God had a plan.
Growmaster, you have been such a blessing to me! Even that summer when I was being tortured (you know what a prude I am and how often I over-reacted). All that stuff was necessary for me to demonstrate some things to the goons who watch us all! God bless you and your family. [Your wife] is such a beautiful woman and I recognize that you looked long and hard for a “beautiful” woman. (Your tattoos give me hope for humanity.) You were raised by a man who refused all connection with humanity. You chose to be different. I love you. A young guy was here last night, he said, “I decided I didn’t want to be an asshole anymore.” Now, he’s not. I’m hoping I won’t have to be an asshole for very much longer. Thnx. (When I’m rich because my dad confesses, call me up. We’ll do the town.) (Josh will watch Lyla.) (We’ll bring him a doggie-bag.)
Ry Cooder – Jesus On The Mainline
Finally, brethren, whatsoeverthingsare true, whatsoeverthingsare honest, whatsoever thingsare just, whatsoeverthingsare pure, whatsoeverthingsare lovely, whatsoever thingsare of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
“I need attachments. But I always preferred the vertical ones, not the horizontal. Attachments that go up have a staying power in me and the ones that go horizontal do not – they shift, faithlessly, illusive, and that hurts. Either in you or in what you have to cut off in order to make sense inside. It can be brutal.”

I’m finding it hard to function without a self-concept. I figured it would be easier (because I never knew how much programming would have to be destroyed or how painful that would be.) I also didn’t know how much of our self-concept we assume from others’ opinions of us. (I did know how ludicrous it is to assume we may actually know those opinions.) We depend on job-titles and marital status and habits. We bumper-sticker our lives, lest we forget. These are not usually accurate depictions of our inner selves, and if we’re required to maintain a self-concept, shouldn’t it be true?
I try not to think about myself; it’s counter-productive to my goal. (“Everybody happy.”) It’s hard not to think about oneself. Electronic rape taught me much. When a prude woman becomes conscious that others watch her, the body is a source of distraction. Much of our self-concept evolves from evaluating ourselves physically. To indulge this in front of strange men is not possible. Many other habitual thought patterns must be minimized, if we’re to co-habit with mind-control. We’ll be roommates for awhile. Those who do not embrace truth will not survive. “Whom the gods would kill they first drive mad.” (?)
Anyway, I settled on a self-concept so I don’t have to flail around when I wake up to find my spot on the planet. My prior claims to spot-hood are gone. My remaining speck of reality is that I am a servant of the most high God. Chayla is painting me a sign to hang over my bed so I can see it first thing when I wake up. It will say: “God is doing this.” When I see it I will remember how every single day for the past 8 years I’ve asked him to guide my life. I will not remember how strange my life has been, nor the people who dislike me. I’ll remember the many miracles and synchronicities; I’ll remember the torture and how He always saw me through it. I’ll remember the future. Stop action: I guess that’s my old sign, reviewing. Maybe I’ll ask her to make a different sign. I could rise a level if my sign said, “Non-stop supernatural, from here on out.” I believe God is very much like a computer game.
My self-concept has always been faulty. If one tallied my utterances, at the top of the list would be: “I’m sorry.” I’ve been sorry every sorry minute of my sorry existence. I am no longer sorry, by any definition. To be sorry would mean that I’ve been wrong, and my notes show that I’ve rarely been wrong. Chayla’s experience reinforces my purpose. If my fellow humans refuse to consider my allegations, they are stupid and doomed. Whether they do not like my spirituality or fear my family connections makes little difference. If they’re “too busy” to look into my claims that won’t matter either. They’ll know I told the truth, and they’ll know it pretty soon.
“The more we retreat from the culture at large the more room we will have to carve out lives of meaning, the more we will be able to wall off the flood of illusions disseminated by mass culture and the more we will retain sanity in an insane world. The goal will become the ability to endure.”
I’m assuming we’ll just run out of excuses to lie. That’s how this will play out for most of us. And we’ll stop getting away with it. (Liars who’ve been unremittingly badgered by truth-questers will be grateful for the attentions. They’ll suffer less. One way or another.) Victims of lies will grow more bold in their demands for respect. People unable to proffer love can’t pretend anymore. This is “apocalypse,” the “revealing.” Christians should have seen this coming. We expected maybe that His Majesty, the Truth would remain in his body like we do? The apocalypse is for one and all! “On earth as it is in Heaven” was his very own prayer. There are no liars in Heaven.
Until today I’d only considered what the shock of realizing that our thoughts are recorded would do to god-fearing people. (Lower case, any port in a storm.) I know how difficult life will become for naive Christians when they finally get this into their heads. I once thought like they think and I recognize some of the problems they’ll encounter. It never even crossed my mind how terrifying our world is to any person who comes awake without faith. I never thought about people who have studiously rejected the concept that other entities could make them think things or do things. How terribly worse when atheists take the red pill. Believing in magic makes life easier when life makes no sense.
“Behold, I show you a better way.” Come clean! Just do it! Your redemption from the NSA and the FBI and from death itself has been secured! Do not prolong your agony! Something has to give, people cannot survive under the pressure that will soon assert against everything we trusted. There is no hiding place in this world of liars and tyrants. We are exposed, individually and corporately. Admit the lies, take the lumps and trust that truth will set you free. Embracing truth will set others free too. My government does God’s work, just like Satan. Abolishing lies was a step toward Heaven on Earth. “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.”
Once we get accustomed to having other people in our heads, our manners must alter. I’d like some consensus on this, so I haven’t made any rules for myself yet. For instance, if you burp in the presence of the cloud of witnesses, you should probably ask their pardon. If the witness is INSIDE of you? There’s gotta be a more lenient social construct. Ever have an internal burp, that nobody (“body”. Hah. That’s the issue exactly.) could hear (wait, we know the cloud can hear through our ears anyway…) must we excuse ourselves to the EAVESDROPPING PRESENCE? What if it’s a “friendly”? What if the entity communicates with us through our body experience? What if the spirit MAKES us burp? What’s the message of this twinge or itch? (There’s always a message. Ask Edward Snowden.) We have much to learn about how to relate to others in this new paradigm. I hope somebody shows up with some answers.
We all want things to make sense. When something doesn’t, we suffer from a spirit of confusion. “God is not the author of confusion.” We think this means that everything will always make sense. This is fallacious logic. Everything makes sense to him. He is not responsible for our choice to maintain confusion. People and events put us under confusion’s influence, often intentionally. (Google: “gaslighting”) We submit to confusion when we try to figure out the unfigurable, and that’s pretty much everything. Rules arrive, rock solid, so we can wedge our unknowables into a framework. This cuts down on the confusion but gives head to other spirits like false doctrine and that sets a course through a whole series of nastier spirits. Eventually we expect we may control and judge others. Mystery of iniquity.
Things will make sense if we’re patient. We see through a glass darkly but the Spirit reveals all truth. We must wait for him to tell us what things mean; eventually we’ll be given the Mind of Christ on every matter. He is always Truth so this is worth waiting for. When we submit to him all of our impossible questions, then we can let them go. The ability to do this is an exercise of “taking every thought captive” and he walks us through the steps. Ask him what to think about and do it. Pray without ceasing and plead the blood over confusion. Don’t hitch your cart to preconceived notions even if they steady the track. It is impossible to be a disciple of Jesus and not pursue truth. Jesus is Truth, and it’s him we follow. “If we can’t run with the footmen, how will we compete with the horses”?
God always has a remnant. Sadly, it is only usually a remnant. People who really hear him. I figure the NSA has snagged a number of neural monitoring images that demonstrate that some people’s lobes light up when they pray, and others’ don’t. I suspect this has the scientists shaking in their Danskos. I suspect this may be why my government’s recent stupidity borders on the ludicrous. I suspect I’m the safest woman in America.
Eventually, if you “pray without ceasing” your every thought becomes prayer. Word formation has become unnecessary long before this point, so most thoughts are prayers already. (If he’s really in your heart and he really talks to you this makes sense. If you must remind yourself that he’s real, you will not understand this.) We’re intended to breathe him. His life must replace our own. His thoughts predominate, then supercede, then our own thoughts recede entirely. I believe this to be so; I’ve not yet experienced the fullness of Holy Ghost possession. I whine. I whine, then I apologize, then I whine again. This is not God’s voice, but my flesh rebelling to the submission he requires. “Take me lower and slower God. And keep giving me good articles about psychopaths.” True prayers are God’s voice.
Communing with the Spirit is my preferred activity. Nothing like it. I will experience it non-stop when Jesus fills us. He plans to come into a bunch of people and take back the earth. He will acquire what he already redeemed. He will spread, through people, love and truth and justice. He loves the Palestinians just as much as he loves the Jews. Americans try his patience, but he loves us too. This is now. I am so grateful to be alive now. (Physically alive, etc…) We don’t have to die, if we get this. We don’t have to age and suffer. We are not our bodies and realizing this is paramount. We must fight for truth no matter the threat to our physical bodies. We must establish a line in the sand that permits no human (supernaturally influenced…) to control us or others. We must require truth from every individual and organ of our species. We must never permit lies to go unseen, or unreported. We must do what God says. Then we don’t have to die.
When you begin to hear from God it doesn’t get easier to listen to him. It gets harder. He has an answer for everything, the fault is always yours and he’s always right. I do not enjoy being told I’m wrong all the time but it helps me get with the program. I choose his program. I also choose to whine about liars and control-freaks. He has them well in hand, and me as well. We’re going somewhere and thank GOD this whiney nasty bitch is not driving. I want things my way. I want very little, but the bit I want I want with vengeance worthy of a Rockefellar. I want to want what God wants. He’s working the selfishness out of me, one tear at a time. What he wants for me is far better than I can imagine, I know this full well. I just get so frustrated! HOW LONG GOD? How long will liars dance around in fancy cars and destroy people who love truth? “Imminent.” He says “imminent.” For years he said “soon” and it didn’t mean much to me who lives within time…but now he says, “imminent.”
The Peace of God
Americans do not understand “peace.” To us, peace is absence of war. (This state being a thing of legend.) God’s peace is different, and any postulate theologian knows it to be an inner thing, a condition of the heart. I had peace one time on Mother’s day. It was maybe ten years ago. I had cooked a fine meal for my men and we were sitting on the couch. I had peace. To be so comfortable in one’s life is the Nexus. Like that Star Trek movie with both Picard and Kirk. Whoopie Goldberg knew about the nexus. Once you’ve been within the bosom of your heart’s desire…there’s no going back. Nexus-knowers will go to incredible lengths to get back to peace. When you’ve experienced peace, all the rest of life becomes bleak and troublesome. All effort grows colorless. Every plan crumbles like old paper. “All is vanity.”
That Mother’s day when I felt peace was not a special day. I was a special me. Peace is confidence. Peace is not considering the consequences of one’s actions, if one is following peace. Peace is in the “midst of the storm”. Peace is not absence of storms. Peace is the best thing I ever felt. Isaac said once that people dislike me because I try to escape “bad vibes.” My offensive-defensive practice is paying off. I am sorry that my pursuit of peace has messed with others’ dabblings in the concept.
I will live in perfect peace, NSA be damned. My lover is the “Prince of Peace” and I’ll be with him. Chayla refers to Jesus as her “big brother.” She had a good brother on this plane. I had a great boyfriend. “When we see him, we will be like him for we will see him as he is.” Jesus is all things to all people. He’s the first and the last and trusting him is the source of peace.
Following peace is “escaping bad vibes” with shoes on. Do not permit energy vampires to steal your life! I won’t do that anymore. I was unwilling to protrude from my Baptist-woman subservience and I would listen to all manner of horseshit! “If you don’t have anything good to say about anyone…come sit next to me.” ( Mae West?) I don’t want to hear about how terrible people are. I don’t want to read politics. I don’t want to see videos of cops killing people. I don’t want to watch Duck Dodger or whatever bearded Christian who has a zillion dollars for being holy. I want to see JESUS. I want to see the glory of God manifested on my planet. More fire God, please. Real peace is cessation of desire, and dissolution of objection. It is the Nexus. I never slept with my great boyfriend, because when I was around him I never really wanted to. I was at peace.
A big indicator of earthly status is “who will take your calls?” This is fear of man writ large, but it is also the currency of provision and relationship. Think about that for a minute. Planetal provisions are distributed according to “status.” If OTHER PEOPLE AGREE that you are worthwhile, you get more stuff. Who among us can convince others of market value? Psychopaths. I sang “Happy Birthday” once to my elected representative. (I used to believe he might actually represent me.) (That makes me psychopathic, that I sang “Happy Birthday” into a hotshot’s cellphone because he might do something for me. I should have sung it because I actually wanted him to have a happy birthday.) (I did though.) (Also.)
We become outraged when somebody does not take our call. We feel cheated and abused. I dislike talking on the telephone and do not listen to my voicemail. This did not seem selfish until I heard my illiterate friend describing the steps he must take to text me. I’d like to be available to him without having to listen to ancient messages. He’d like to talk to me without messing up his zen. The only answer is telepathy. We want everybody happy and everybody does not communicate the same way. We’ve got to advance. When we do, technology will no longer spew security gaps and we will understand perfectly. Security and privacy will no longer stand at arms. Nobody’s getting shot here who doesn’t deserve it. We will see perfect justice and nobody will be misunderstood or overlooked. We’re about to see Heaven on Earth.
The study of hearing God will prepare us for the expected telepathic communication. Those who have trained their ear will be pleasantly surprised to distinguish various voices. Those who have never heard God’s voice will probably lose their minds. He is talking. Even if you do not care to obey God, it is probably a good idea to pay attention just so you survive what’s coming next. This is a great time to be alive but it is also a fork in the road. You can pick up that fork and dig in, or you will be uncomfortable for a while. You heard it here first.
How Remote Neural Monitoring Makes People Crazy Part 2
I don’t know if everybody has a secret, but I did. I had the mother of all life-defining secrets. I was ashamed of it and troubled by it and I prayed about it all the time. When they get into your head, there will be no more secrets. The brain-rapers are not nice. They will tell your secrets… first of all to you. Facing your innermost secret can make you crazy. This is not a fear-of-man issue; it goes much deeper. It shakes the foundations of your history and heritage. It shakes your self-concept, and your prospects. Being forced to examine your secret? Tough. Very tough. If we do not choose truth as a lifestyle, they can easily kill us at this point. Secrets are basically unspoken lies. The NSA abolished lying.
I do not hear from God perfectly. Frequently his responses to me are like, “Who do you think is running this show?” Sometimes that admonition is sufficient to set me aright. Other times he must continue, “Do you think for a single moment that I have not set this up, chosen you and the rest of the world, and have not known the beginning from the end?” He laughs at me. He’s very fine. I would have stopped laughing at a being so pitiful…long ago. (I’m gonna dance with him.) (!)

HAVE you ever thought about something you never shared with anyone, and have been horror-struck at the mere thought of someone coming to know about your little secret? If you have, then you probably have all the more reason to be paranoid now thanks to new and improved security systems being developed around the world to deal with terrorism that inadvertently end up impinging on one’s privacy.
Some of the countries involved in such programmes include USA, UK, Spain, Germany and France. Recently, the National Security Agency (NSA) of the US has developed a very efficient method of controlling the human brain. This technology is called Remote Neural Monitoring (RNM) and is expected to revolutionise crime detection and investigation.
What is it?
RNM works remotely to control the brain in order to read and detect any criminal thought taking place inside the mind of a possible perpetrator. Research studies have shown that the human brain thinks at a rate of about 5000 bits per second and does not have the capacity to compete with supercomputers performing via satellites, implants and biotelemetry. The human brain has a distinctive set of bioelectric resonance system. For the RNM system, supercomputers are being used and, thus, with its help, supercomputers can send messages through an implanted person’s nervous system in order to influence their performance in a desired way.
RNM has been developed after about 50 years of neuro-electromagnetic involuntary human experimentations. According to many scientists, within a few years it is expected that DNA microchips will be implanted in the human brain which would make it inherently controllable. With RNM, it will be possible to read and control a person’s emotional thought processes along with the subconscious and dreams. At present, around the world, supercomputers are monitoring millions of people simultaneously with the speed of 20 billion bits per second especially in countries like USA, Japan, Israel and many European countries.
RNM has a set of certain programs functioning at different levels, like the signals intelligence system which uses electromagnetic frequencies (EMF), to stimulate the brain for RNM and the electronic brain link (EBL). The EMF Brain Stimulation system has been designed as radiation intelligence which means receiving information from inadvertently originated electromagnetic waves in the environment. However, it is not related to radioactivity or nuclear detonation. The recording machines in the signals intelligence system have electronic equipment that investigate electrical activity in humans from a distance. This computer-generated brain mapping can constantly monitor all electrical activities in the brain. The recording aid system decodes individual brain maps for security purposes.
What does it do?
For purposes of electronic evaluation, electrical activity in the speech centre of the brain can be translated in to the subject’s verbal thoughts. RNM can send encoded signals to the auditory cortex of the brain directly bypassing the ear. This encoding helps in detecting audio communication. It can also perform electrical mapping of the brain’s activity from the visual centre of the brain, which it does by bypassing the eyes and optic nerves, thus projecting images from the subject’s brain onto a video monitor. With this visual and audio memory, both can be visualised and analysed. This system can, remotely and non-invasively, detect information by digitally decoding the evoked potentials in 30-50Hz, 5 millwatt electromagnetic emissions from the brain. The nerves produce a shifting electrical pattern with a shifting magnetic flux which then puts on a constant amount of electromagnetic waves. There are spikes and patterns which are called evoked potentials in the electromagnetic emission from the brain. The interesting part about this is that the entire exercise is carried out without any physical contact with the subject.
The EMF emissions from the brain can be decoded into current thoughts, images and sounds in the subject’s brain. It sends complicated codes and electromagnetic pulse signals to activate evoked potentials inside the brain, thus generating sounds and visual images in the neural circuits. With its speech, auditory and visual communication systems, RNM allows for a complete audio-visual brain to brain link or a brain-to-computer link.
Of course, the mechanism needs to decode the resonance frequency of each specific site to modulate the insertion of information in that specific location of the brain. RNM can also detect hearing via electromagnetic microwaves, and it also features the transmission of specific commands into the subconscious, producing visual disturbances, visual hallucinations and injection of words and numbers in to the brain through electromagnetic radiation waves. Also, it manipulates emotions and thoughts and reads thoughts remotely, causes pain to any nerve of the body, allows for remote manipulation of behaviour, controls sleep patterns through which control over communication is made easy. This can be used for crime investigation and security management.
With all the given benefits of RNM for tracking the illicit and treacherous activities, there are many concerns and risks being pointed out by human rights activists and other scientists. The agencies of human rights around the world have criticised RNM as a violation of basic human rights because it violates privacy and the dignity of thoughts and activities of life. Several countries have protested against it and refer to it as an attack on their human and civil rights. The scientists protesting against the use of RNM believe that people who have been implanted involuntarily become biological robots and guinea pigs for RNM activities in the guise of security. This is an important biological concern related to microchip implantation, which is a hidden technology using microwave radiations for the control of the mind.
Scientists believe that like leukemia and the cancerous risks posed by mobile phones which also emit microwaves, RNM can also pose similar threats to a subject’s overall health as the heating effect of tissues with the speed of light is a known effect of high powered microwave and electromagnetic pulse weapons.
Thus, RNM remains a controversial technology which is being used in many countries for security maintenance and surveillance.
I’m very grateful God caused me to keep a journal. It’s a tremendously faith-supportive habit. Not only does it reveal answers to prayer and synchonicity of events, but I can also review my spiritual growth and how far I’ve come. I rejoice as I recognize prior bigotries and become less inclined to put down stakes in my road. He’s led me from so much falseness that it’s certain I’m not right yet. Lead on, o’ Thou Great Jehovah.
Any day now you will sense somebody digging in your mind. Memories of people or events will pop up and you won’t know where they came from. You’ll hear questions about them, about your feelings and motivations. How are you going to know if it is God, demons, or the NSA? You must prepare for this. The only way I know is to learn the voice of God really well. (You should seek the baptism of the Holy Ghost to facilitate this.) They say you don’t have to recognize every kind of counterfeit 100-dollar-bill if you handle enough of the real ones. You can just tell.
From an old journal: “When people question my conversations with Jesus it is as though I’m sitting in a beautiful garden enjoying a great old book…only to be surrounded by blind people insisting that I can’t read. (And criticizing the landscaper.)”
OK, when I hear from God I am thinking in a single context. This is the brain’s limitation. (Thus far.) Within my singular paradigm, I am always amazed at the perfection of the message. Later, I reconsider. I see my words through a different set of eyes. Then I am amazed at the perfection of the message. Later, I reconsider. And once again I am amazed at the perfection of the message. I have no reason to believe the layers of pertinence will ever end. He is creation. He made us in his image, we are creation. We create reality with every breath. Be careful how you spread that around. I’ve said this before. You people who called me crazy invented a seriously kooky world for me to live in. I moved out, when God told me to. Your world exists until you reconsider and reinvent my life. Oops, already did that. You should consider reinventing your own. I no longer live within the constraints of your “prayer” (read: gossip) list. You are not meant to be there either.

“Whatever you believe about love you believe about God.” (Joshua Tongol)
“The meanest people in my life are the Christians. God is a lot nicer than you think.”
“People have been using fear to control you.”
“If God’s love is conditional, how can we love our enemies?”
November 24, 2013
One of the first things God ever spoke to me was surprisingly simple, but it’s taken me decades to assimilate.
He said, “The very worst evil in the world is that evil which most closely mimics TRUTH.” Is this not obvious? Churches do not only deceive themselves, but they “muddy the waters” (Ezekiel) so badly that starving people can’t find what they need! If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…isn’t it a duck? WRONG! NO, a fake duck fools those who eat it a l’orange, but it also stops every other hungry-guy from seeking the real-deal! (I recognize this and I don’t even watch TV.) Satan worshipers are far less evil than “Christians” who won’t go all the way with God.
Lakefield Baptist Church, you are more harmful to the cause of Jesus than your sister cults! You are teases. You are the strip joint with no back room. You are the most harmful anti-christ organization with which I am acquainted…”and I’m in POLITICS!” (Candice Bergen, “Sweet Home Alabama”) You have some good doctrine. You have some false doctrine. You have far too little of the presence of the Lord who is above all flesh and all doctrine.

How to hear from God.
There are many side effects to hearing God, that make life easier even in the temporal realm. I do not usually overeat anymore. Sitting here this morning, I hear a voice saying, “Go eat that Subway sandwich in the refrigerator.” I do not EVER get to eat anybody’s cooking but my own, so I am tempted. I keep chuckling though, every time I hear the voice because I know something about myself. I know that I am not hungry. Selah.
I hear from God in everything. Not that I believe anybody cares, but they will.
“We tend to think and unconsciously believe that the spirit realm is not as real as the natural realm. We think that consciously or unconsciously because we live most of our time in the natural realm, without spiritual awareness. …we think the world that we can see with our eyes and touch with our hands is the real world, when really, the opposite is true.”
“The Bible says God is invisible, and that’s true to the natural eyes. God is not invisible to the eyes of our spirit.”
“How do you become friends with an invisible spirit?”
When you have a “language-interpreter” who also is Spirit-filled.
How to hear from God
Maybe it seems I’m belaboring a point here, but I can’t stress too much how important it is to control your mind. You’ve got to do this so you can identify voices, (separating soul and spirit, Hebrews 4:12) and so that you can maintain your faith equilibrium. I also cannot stress too much, that in order to have faith AT ALL, you must hear from God yourself, about you. Any hoped-for Biblical truth is merely that: hope. You cannot get faith from the written word, unless God’s Spirit speaks it into your heart. “Faith cometh by hearing.” Romans 10:17 (in part).
You choose what things to ponder; do not allow the world to force its thought patterns and opinions on you!
You choose to “remember his benefits” and to stand on the promises!
You choose to determine what the Bible means at the foot of Jesus himself.
You choose to become a Son of God, you have the power.
“For as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of God.” John 1:12(a)
“And ye shall receive power… after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.” Acts 1:8(a)
We create our own future with our minds. We can choose to become everything he ever planned and to receive his blessings for eternity, or we can allow false ideas to prohibit our health, growth and our future forever. You have power to receive the Holy Ghost and you have the power to listen to him. He will tell you what to believe and what to do. He will tell you the future and show you miracles. He will cause your body and soul to do things they cannot do. He is the River of Life that should be flowing all the time through all of us.
People who have not learned to control their minds will not understand your experience of hearing God all the time and tend to be critical. They cannot imagine that your motivations are different than theirs. Their “love” at this point, is not love at all.
“…ye have purified your souls (minds, psyche) in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren.” 1 Peter 1:22(a).

Another reason I like to stay in the Spirit is because I don’t have to work at remembering the reasons why I believe a thing. I don’t need to nurture faith as I do with everybody else’s world. In the Spirit I just know what I know and Jesus is there and it’s very pleasant. Natural realm necessitates reminding myself of this vision or that dream or this or another miracle, just to keep believing. This is unnecessary labor and others would enjoy the experience of freedom very much. (Of course if you never hear from God, nurturing faith is impossible.)

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8. Three weeks in a row, we read this verse in Sunday School and the teacher told us that all believers in Jesus have this glorious power and guide. This verse is claimed by Bibb Mountain Zion Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia. They would have better referenced: “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:4. Their pastor killed himself.
Pastor who worried God wasn’t ‘hearing’ him commits suicide
Watch his sermon clip. There is much truth. He said, “I’ve come too far to turn around now.”
Bibb Mountain recognizes two sacraments (from their website): “Water Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age.” I reject this limitation based on Hebrews 6:2 “Of the doctrine of baptisms…” I also reject it based on much personal experience. There are many baptisms and the baptism of fire is upon each of us now.
One time God had me re-baptize myself. I was on my way to a political event and pulled over to take a swim in Lake Huron. I kept my hair out of the water because I had to give a speech. God asked, “Aren’t you willing to go all the way under for me?” I was and I did. It was only one of a thousand times he’s required commitment that church “by-laws” do not recognize. These are sacraments. They are personal. Think about it, if you can record God’s graces on a couple sheets of paper…is that a god you really want to serve?
The Sunday School teacher was in error. To believe we obtain the fullness of the Holy Ghost Baptism because the disciples did it for us…is as ridiculous as it would be to believe we were saved because those men made that choice. God deals with each of us personally. Isn’t that the point of a “Personal Savior”?
My wisest friend asked me once, when I was in turmoil, “Do you still pray in tongues? Then God hasn’t left you, has he?” Jesus said, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter , that he may abide with you for ever.” John 14:16. Even when I can’t hear Jesus’ voice, I can still pray in the Spirit. Prayers in the Spirit are perfect prayers, and they never go unanswered.
“…we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26. If we do not “utter” things we don’t understand…we cannot logically claim this verse.
If you’ve never experienced the feast of Pentecost…how do you expect to recognize the FEAST OF TABERNACLES, when Jesus appears in the flesh (and lots of Spirit) and comes to dwell in his people?

Sometimes God just plain doesn’t want to talk to us.
Like when we know we should make a situation right and refuse.
“Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Matthew 5:23-24
November 10, 2013
Looks like I left this out. I am very poor with numerical procession. So far. This is part five in other places:
To hear from God you must first find him. Psalm 100:4 ”Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise.” Where’s that? Psalm 22:3 ”But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” Worship is the tabernacle of David. HE’S IN THERE! That’s the “secret place.” You WORSHIP him and ”the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.” Deuteronomy 30:14 He’ll make you shiver with joy and he never criticizes. He corrects though. He breaks your heart all the time. When you get into being alone with God in worship, Song of Solomon is a good book to read.
He wants to talk to us. When you wake up at night because your joints hurt, or because you got a pea under your mattress, GET UP AND TALK TO HIM. Maybe he’s got something to say to you. When you’re bored at a stoplight…talk to him. ”Lean not on your own understanding…in all thy ways acknowledge him!” Isn’t that what He said to do? Also, it really cuts the road-rage…
“Tarry!” ”Tarry!” He said it, he pleaded in the garden, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.” Matthew 26:38 “Be still and know that I am God.” Let him be God, give him time to show up. He’s always testing us. Do you want to hear from him badly enough to turn off the TV? He needs to know that, because he’s the righteous judge.
Record what he says, bury it in your heart. You’ll need it someday. The reason the “devil is in the details” is because God is the details. He gets everything right, and even if you don’t believe what he said at the time, later on you’ll be amazed. It’s all about the miracles, the answers to prayer. That’s where you get faith. From hearing him and seeing him be right over and over.
It is so very much more difficult to hear God if you have not received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. That’s why Satan is all over that “doctrine”. The Baptism gives you the “rivers of living water” flowing through your every cell and vibration. Just tell God you’ll accept everything he has for you, trusting that a good dad gives good gifts. Just roll with it. Your body might move, your mouth might quote scripture you don’t remember, you may cry or laugh or sigh and puke. (He kicks out demons like that sometimes. Yeah. You DO have some.)
Call me up if you want to, you can’t shock me. I didn’t have anybody to talk to all the years I was learning this stuff, and I know it’s disconcerting. Do it now, things will become much more unusual. Expect non-stop supernatural intervention in the world we perceive in the natural realm. We must live in the spiritual reality of our changing paradigm. I ask every day that God will raise me above the matrix so I can see the world through his eyes. This practice has saved my life numerous times. It encourages love for those who treat us badly, and allows us to remember that “we battle not against flesh and blood.” We must know our enemy and not presume that “people” have done us wrong.

This won’t mean much to you now, but when you guys finally get it, you’re going to be ashamed by how crazy you look to me. God won’t put up with “ashamed.”

How to Hear from God Part XII
What kinds of things might God tell us?
November 3, 2013
How to Hear from God Part XI
I used to be jealous of Debbie Macauley and Shirley Harkness, even my sister. They got to be missionaries. I wasn’t called to the “foreign field” and could not pretend otherwise. Once you hear God’s voice, you can’t pretend anymore. (Maybe that’s why people don’t want to hear him?) In the Baptist tradition, foreign missionary work is the highest calling a woman can hope to fulfill. I’m grateful God thinks otherwise. Deborah judged Israel. (Israel is a picture of God’s people. It should not be confused with the nation-state bearing its name because political “Israel” is as much Babylon as my own government, the “churches,” and other freedom-killing entities.)
God has three different voices. Some people hear all three. I’ve only heard the father’s voice once. It was in February 2001. I was sick, fat, discouraged and demon-infested. I had been praying for years that he would change me. When I heard his voice, I was immediately changed. I’ve never looked back. That was the morning I woke speaking in tongues. ( And about thirty pounds thinner.)
Although I had studied the Bible for years, after I received the “baptism of the Holy Ghost” I began to understand scripture differently. That would make sense because: “This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 2:13-14. (NIV. Sue me.) I soon began to have great difficulty with Baptist theology.
Baptists believe we can figure out what the Bible means and what God wants. In doing so, Baptists do not worship Jesus, but the mind. The mind has been called our “god of the age.” It is also the FALSE god of the AGES. The tree of the “knowledge of good and evil” is nothing less. Blood-bought Christians are expected to be different. “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:12)
“God is a spirit” (John 4:24[a]) who rarely shows up in physical form. To hear from him, we must enter his realm. Fortunately, he has made provision for us to easily accomplish that. Denying the “baptism of the Holy Spirit” on doctrinal grounds is a fail. God said we were not to attempt evangelization without it. (Acts. Sue me.) Believing one already possesses this miracle of grace on the basis of “mental ascension” looks pretty foolish to those who have experienced it. Show me your miracles and I’ll show you mine.
How to Hear From God Part X
Once you hear from God, you go for broke. “Leap and the net will appear.” That’s the only way to be obedient. If you wait until your health insurance deductible has been met…opportunity will have disappeared. Blessing will still be available, but hesitation will damage your intimacy with the lover of your soul. If you’re OK with that, read no further.
“Lord, please enable me to verbalize how very intrinsic is my need to be with you, to be fully you. Allow me to express in words, the Word! Your presence has shielded me from harm I hope my brethren never face. Your presence has provoked ecstasy I long for, even through pain of death. You are not my reason for living, far more than that. You are my reason for abandonment. I abandon even life, for our moments together. I am grateful to be learning that you love me just as much.”
My dog got paint all over the baby-blue carpeting. I couldn’t understand why it annoyed me, I really dislike the carpeting. I’m broke, but maybe someday I’ll buy something I like. I LEFT THE DRAWER OPEN where she got the paint. I can’t blame it on anybody else. It is Satan, pure and simple. When there is no rational reason for what you’re feeling, you are feeling the enemy. It is prudent to take a moment to evaluate why you are aroused, for any reason. It is necessary. You must, if you choose to survive the apocalypse, “bring every thought captive.”
OK, sometimes arousal is not an annoyed mien. Sometimes arousal feels pretty good. Sometimes one becomes spontaneously-electronically aroused. This will become commonplace and my words will seem quaint. I am being polite. THE GOVERNMENT CAN GIVE YOU AN ORGASM FROM SPACE. SPIRITS CAN DO THAT TOO. BE ADVISED. The government, Satan and his minions, liars, false-accusers, child and WOMAN-abusers and RACIAL abusers, are the enemy.
Our Captain is Jesus, and he speaks through the Holy Spirit. If your “doctrine” does not permit the BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, that’s OK with me. If you don’t have enough Holy Ghost to heal those people on your prayer bulletin, I’d say you do not believe God’s Word. If you’re OK with that, then OK. I’m OK, You’re OK. (Thomas Harris) What do your sick people think?
I could write forever, but unless you begin to see how every single thing that happens to you is ordained by God and you’d better figure out what it means by asking him I will be as a “tinkling cymbal.” (1 Corinthians 13) Love has to have a recipient.
How to Hear From God Part IX
“Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. My beloved is mine, and I am his” Song of Solomon 2:15-16.
Every animal has biblical significance, and every plant. This verse paints a picture: “But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.” Isaiah 34:11. Cormorants are creepy, so are bitterns and owls. Grapes refer to wine. (For our discussion, remember that wine represents the presence of God which turns the “water of the Word” into the joy of wine.) Trees in the bible always refer to men, of various sorts. (I remembered that last winter, after a stalwart local passed away. I had prophesied his death, without knowing it. I told my dad a tree would fall on his house.)
God’s voice thunders sometimes. But, most often he speaks thus: “And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19:11-12.
Conscience is one of God’s small voices. We often ignore that one, by shunning his presence. When Adam and Eve rebelled against being the trees that God intended (we are what we eat), they could no longer bear to hear this voice. “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.” Genesis 3:7-9
Recognizing the “still small voice” of God is not always so easy. There are many still small voices, to a contemplative soul. (There are many extra for a political dissident in the post-human techno-age. Some of these make buzzing noises so I suppose they are not “still”.) Pride tells us things. Bigotry is so loud you can’t hear it in its own clamor. We nurture bigotry by segregating ourselves with those who think like us and create a disco of disorientation. If we ever call it a night, self-righteousness rings in our ears all the way home! These are some of the “tiny foxes” that mess with the grapes of his presence, so we don’t hear him properly.
To hear from God, we must discern from a host of voices. I had a wild dream this morning. I remember lots of it because I woke up a couple times, considered what I’d seen and determined that not much of it was from God. Lots of impulses and ideas, but I didn’t hear the still small voice that carried his presence. I only heard God’s voice in one small episode: I was at a school and they took me to see a marvel! A smooth white animal, a bit smaller than a VW. It was some kind of mutant-albino-baby-rhino. I was supposed to care for it. Then it shit its diaper so bad that I left and let some men clean it up.

How to Hear From God Part VIII
I woke up this morning very hungry. I wanted Poutine, fabulous Canadian french fries with cheese and gravy. I don’t usually eat too much fried food and lately I’ve been wanting a lot, so I began to consider what it meant. There is lots of grease in the Bible, butter, anointing oil, sacrifices of fat (peace offering) and the silver-greased palm of Judas. There are miracles involving grease,like Elijah’s widow with the oil that never ran out. There are parables, like the virgins waiting for the bridegroom and some having neglected to buy enough oil.
The Jews (and Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christians) recognize a miracle from the time of the Maccabees, when the lamps didn’t burn out for eight days straight. (This is not recorded in the King James Bible.) Present-day Jews eat traditional Hanukkah foods that are fried in oil, like jelly donuts and potato pancakes in remembrance of God’s miracle. Things we eat have spiritual significance. “He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock.” Deuteronomy 32:13. What’s that supposed to mean? (“Taste and see that God is good.”)
Foods are representative of the Word of God. (Kisses are too. Mouth-things.) For instance, “If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.” Numbers 14:8. What do milk and honey represent? 1 Peter 2:2 “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” Even the most childish Bible student would agree that Scripture and milk are connected. What do you do with too much milk? You separate the oil out and make butter. “And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the land.” Isaiah 7:22.
Honey represents God’s enlightenment (revelation) upon the “precepts” of the written word. “Then said Jonathan, My father hath troubled the land: see, I pray you, how mine eyes have been enlightened, because I tasted a little of this honey.” 1 Samuel 14:29. It is the most wonderful thing in the world to be fed at the hand of Jesus! “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” Psalm 119:103-104. Honey is why we pray. We stuff ourselves with milk and butter but it doesn’t satisfy like the sweetness of a Word from the Lord. (Besides, when it’s flowing you realize how stupid it is to argue about which Bible to use or whether we can get doctrine from the Book of Acts!)
God likes shiny faces and anoints us with the “oil of gladness.” He wants us to be happy and gives us things to make our faces shine: “He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine.” Psalm 104:14(a). He told us to “wash” our faces when we fast in the “secret place” with him, and when we’ve heard from him our faces really shine. “Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.” Ecclesiastes 8:1 If we want to be wise, we’ll listen to him. We NEED to hear from God, and not trust others to “buy the oil.” ” And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee….Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men.” Isaiah 29:12-13.
“Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.” Isaiah 7:15.
Aaron was the priest for a lot of people so he had to hear from God clearly. God made sure he was sopping in oil all the time:
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments.” Psalm 133:2.
(Getting along with people is also part of hearing from God, obviously.)
Aaronic blessing (with fingers held like Spock, actually…):
“The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” Numbers 6:23-26.

Ever hear somebody say something, and it glowed? Maybe you didn’t know why but you took note of a particular statement, something buried in copious words and gestures. Just a little something?
Do songs move you? Do you hear things the words do not say? Do you hear words in songs that have no words? Do you listen to songs? Do you listen to nature? Do you listen to your wife? Listening is necessary of course, to hear from God.
Ever notice a coincidence, or an outright paradox, of behavior or expression? “A paradox is truth standing on its head, trying to attract attention.” (I still don’t know who said that.) Truth glows. It’s not a visual glowing, nor even a tactile one. Jesus is light, and in him “there is no darkness at all.” For a split second, we see truth and it mesmerizes us even as it dissipates in Satan’s onslaught of wordiness. The Holy Spirit is not pushy. He just nudges us now and again. He wants us to SEEK him, for love’s sake.
Interpreting what we hear is not necessary. That is the Holy Spirit’s job, when he sees fit. One does not need to understand truth to recognize it. That’s the spirit. The mind wants to understand everything before signing on. We must know if we’re listening to our mind, or to our spirit. (God puts lots of truth into our spirits that he retrieves when the time is right.) We must hear him to draw on the reservoir of truth…that’s why Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Think about “joints” and “marrow” for a bit. Marrow creates blood and “life is in the blood.” Joints bend. When we know truth, through our spirits, bending is not an option. If we cannot tell which thoughts originate in mind and which originate in spirit, we’re doomed.
Until I learned to discern between soul and spirit, and I’m still not terribly skilled, I would read the news and pass out. I would internalize fear, from soulish truth. I still recognize truth, but choose to listen to my spirit. My spirit says: The world is depraved beyond comprehension, so don’t try to understand it. There is nothing to be done about it. God is in control.
“Can’t you feel a BRAND NEW DAY?” (Hint: Ask your spirit.)

How to Hear From God Part VI
How humans are functionally unable to read the Bible and the arrogance of assuming we can
I woke up with three words running through my mind. “Sex,” “House,” “Lights.” I had no idea what they meant, so I began to ponder them. They could mean many things:
“Sex-house lights” could be maybe in Amsterdam, although I don’t know if a “red light district” really advertises with red lights.
“Sex house-lights” might be purchased on ebay? For the “do-it-yourselfer.”
I’ve been celibate so long, my sub-conscious might be mocking: “SEX?! House-lights!”
What if the word order is wrong? A “sex lighthouse” could be a rescue mission yet mean something different to an antsy sailor in a port-city. What if it was “sex-lite”? To an engaged mind, engaging words can go on forever. God told us pretty clearly to disengage our minds. OK, maybe it wasn’t so clear, because it’s in the Bible which is intentionally confusing, even before its zillion “translations.”
Proverbs 78:2 “I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old”
Proverbs 15:5 “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: 6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.”
HE HIDES IN CLOUDS AND GREAT DARKNESS!
Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.”
I John 1:5 “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth”
Jesus is all truth. He said, “I am truth.” This necessarily means that all truth is him. Inverse, converse, whatever. If A = B, then B = A. To reject truth of any kind, is to reject the Savior who is your only possible means out of here alive. Rejecting spiritual truth is the natural consequence of “leaning on one’s own understanding” and failing to seek God’s applications and timing. Rejecting political truth is ignorance and fear. Rejecting a person’s real-live personal truth? That’s failure to love, so it’s rejecting Jesus two ways. Jesus is also love.
Proverbs 15:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
October 31, 2013 How to Hear from God Part V
OK, I’ve been trying for over two years (our book was published in 2011) to get any one of you brave “Christian soldiers” to listen to me. Psalm 69:20(b) in part: “I looked for some to take pity, but there was none.”
After years of discussion, Isaac and I have pretty much agreed that “love” is a form of rapt attention to another…this has been a topic of concerted study. Definitionally, nobody in the whole world loved me. I received no attention by my family, or by the church. It appears I was “looking for love in all the wrong places.” The Lord is love. Exodus 33:7: “And it came to pass, that every one which sought the Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp.” To hear from God, you must be willing to leave your comfort zone. I left town. The “church’s” stakes have grown roots and they couldn’t break camp if the “pillar of cloud” sent them a text in advance!
US Olympian athletes must promise, to compete in the upcoming Russian games, that they will support “sexual diversity.” OK, it is not enough that they are possibly the most personally-disciplined individuals in the world? Must they now promote propaganda for a political agenda? Is this not the definition of mental slavery? Does not every church require such commitment before permitting a love-slave-long-jumper to perform her duties? (I guess if you’ve already chosen not to listen to a person, love is out of the question.)
“Thank you for the NSA. FINALLY, somebody is listening to me! Amen.”
(PS-Not many people know I vandalized your whorehouse. I told Steve to pass it on.)
(PPS-“It only takes a spark, to get a fire going. And soon, all those around will warm up to its glowing. That’s HOW it is with GOD’S love, once you’ve experienced it. You spread his love, to everyone. You WANT TO PASS IT ON.”)
(Doesn’t Steve have a cop staying with him recently? Maybe he could tell the cop and then my government would love me more than you guys.)
How to Hear from God Part IV
“Surfing the apocalypse: Time to check your balance.”
A very important thing to keep in mind is this: God will not talk to you if you have no intention of doing what he says. (Trying to do everything the Book says is foregone ridiculous…you might hang yourself like Judas and didn’t Jael put a spike through Sisera’s head? ) God tests if you’re willing. He tests over and over and over and over. He asks silly things sometimes. He asks increasingly difficult things as you pass the baby-tests. It’s very hard to do things you know will piss people off. You have to let go of caring what people think.
Multiple choice tests are the hardest, surprisingly. He throws in great distracters like allowing you to be tempted. You must pray creatively to choose rightly. (My rule of thumb is 1. God is always right, and 2. My life is not about me.) I got so far into the game I was actually tested by being asked to do the EXACT SAME THING I WAS TEMPTED TO DO! Very difficult to maintain balance, under those circumstances. You must monitor your heart continuously. It’s not WHAT you do, it’s WHY YOU DO IT.
I John 3:19-21 “And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.” This is tricky stuff, but if you submit to obey him every day, the Spirit will keep you on the board. It is possible to read every word in the Book, and every word of true prophecy…without shame. “God, let it be so for all of my brethren.”
Then the tests got hard. Bigotry is near impossible to recognize in the natural but the Holy Ghost puts your nose in it. He asked me to know and to see and to be things I was very bigoted against. His tests are not without purpose, I shed much bigotry as a result. “Lord, please finish the work and send more of your fire to burn everything in me that is not Love and Truth.”
The secret to passing God’s tests of obedience is audacious prayer. Audacious obedience to the Spirit. I SANG TO SATAN ONCE. I passed that test. When I saw no way out of temptation, I prayed for God to create a new thing for me. Darned if he didn’t do it. I negotiated terms, I discussed with him their definitions. He will never demand an answer without providing the parameters. His tests are fair.
Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
- a priest or priestess acting as a medium through whom advice or prophecy was sought from the gods in classical antiquity.
a response or message given by an oracle, typically one that is ambiguous or obscure.
“I’ve sucked the milk out of a thousand cows.” (Dylan)
Best sermon in the world: Go to God. Ask what he wants. Do it.
- Oh by the way, God’s words are often “ambiguous and obscure”
Psalm 18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
How to hear from God Part III
God has many things to say to us, and it is his guidance that ensures survival in what is about to transpire in the natural realm. He is drawing each of us toward truth, and our response will create the reality we experience.
Concern for humans’ opinion of our behavior is fear and creates false thought patterns and physical affectations. This initiates incongruity within our selves. We know what we know, but we choose to imagine we know what others think and we imagine that we can control what they think about us, and we imagine that their opinion matters. This is the crack in the hull. If we are not honest within, we’ll never see the lies coming and they’ll take us down.
Despite our failure to recognize God’s devotion and longing for each of us in all of our personal weirdness (God loves diversity. Humans are yet identifying new lizard species and He gets off on all the various strains of marijuana He created.)… we STILL think that we are the center of the universe. When we’re alone with Him, He talks about us a lot. That’s partly why it’s so wonderful, we all want to talk about ourselves, and each and every incident in our life carries personal revelation. But, our lives are not about us. He has a plan that encompasses far more than we can imagine. Our part is necessary, for Him to accomplish all His desire. His desire is ours. His desire is “everybody happy.” People get offended when you say that. People do not think they can be happy unless they’re depriving somebody else of his own happiness. This is a lie.
Is it not becoming easier to recognize the truth expressed by “the love of money is the root of all evil”? I never understood that. I watched a lot of evil people do the deed and not get paid.
“Jesus, is it OK if I start calling you ‘Mister Apocalypse.’? It’s kind of fun.”
I dislike that I speak like Sarah Palin. God will give me a new voice (unadulterated by smokers’ cough. God told me to smoke. I told my mom.), a new vernacular and also extinguish from my rhetoric, “Geeze-o-pete”. He’s very kind.

How to hear from God part II
God does not like whining. I know this by a whole lot of experience. I was tortured and I whined, more than most I’m sure. He also does not like bitching. I did a lot of that too. He is much more kindly inclined to listen when you are speaking words of faith. He loves questions the best, and often answers a query with an enigma. When you ask him a question, he ALWAYS throws the ball right back to you. Conversation with the Lord is the finest ever. (I long for wonderful conversation, don’t you?) When you answer a question, the Lord’s likely response is “why?” He cares much more about why we do or think or feel a thing, than he does about the act or thought or sense. He causes you to recognize yourself as he sees you, and that’s good because that’s how we’re supposed to live.
He told us to “pray without ceasing.” This is very difficult for any human who lives in the world. The world intrudes on prayers conjured in mind-language, because our minds are otherwise occupied. There is only one way to pray non-stop. (Praying non-stop is necessary when encountering outside influences. Lots of these [ie. mind control, television, demons, electronic weapons, etc.] interject intrusion you will soon easily identify.) You must pray in the Spirit. (Praying in the Spirit is synonymous with “praying in tongues” and involves many manifestations, linguistically, musically, kinetically, emotionally, etc.) Then, when you’re alone again, you can revert to the ongoing conversation in English that you habitually enjoy. This is how to “pray without ceasing.” Didn’t you always wonder how it was possible to obey that commandment?
This continual contact with God saved my life as I was being tortured and subjected to intentional fear induction. I did not become afraid when my body moved on its own, because I was used to it. God prepared me perfectly to survive the onslaught of induced sensations I experienced. He has prepared us all perfectly for what we are about to encounter. If you choose not to believe that, or choose not to seek his face now, you will become afraid and enter the first level of hell.
Oh, by the way, I now have a witness willing to testify about what he watched me experience and how I reacted to it. He said, “I remember you praying all the time about why is he putting me through this?” The reasons are becoming more clear. He came “to set people free.”
PS- There is a misspelling on your sign again.
How to hear from God Part I
(You will need to know this.)
1. First rule to remember, and there’s freedom in it: If he wants you to hear a thing, you will. If you absolutely must know…you will know.
2. Those that belong to him will always know his voice. “My sheep know my voice…” Other voices might sound like his, and confuse you. But when you hear him again, you’ll laugh and you just know.
3. YOU MUST SIT STILL AND LISTEN. “They that wait upon the Lord…”
4. YOU MUST SIT STILL AND LISTEN.
5. Observe anomalies in the environment. Watch the plants and animals and weather and listen to every sound. They’ll begin to tell you things. The environment of human society will do the same.
6. It’s all about the miracles. We’re looking for the glory of God Almighty to manifest in the physical world, so we’re looking for miracles. Pay attention.
7. Listen to your body. Assume it knows what it’s talking about.
8. Do what you hear. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Through CHRIST, through the anointing. Through the SPIRIT…not your mind. If you follow the Spirit, everything you choose to do is perfect. He uses every single minute and every single remark to create reality. Be careful how you spread that around. He “calleth things that are not as though they are.” So do we. DO NOT change reality for others by judging them and committing murder. Calumny is murder. I was guilty too.
9. Sin consciousness is False Evidence Appearing Real. It is FEAR. Extinguish it. You are no longer a sinner so get over yourself. “I already confessed–no need to confess again.” (Dylan)
10. Record revelations. They will be important to the world and especially to you.
11. Pray. The more you pray the more miracles you get to see. How can he ever give you an amazing answer to prayer if you never ask for amazing stuff? He’s changing the world for me. I asked for everything!
12. Ask for the oil. Do not be a foolish virgin and wait too long. It’s costly.
13. Do not blaspheme the Holy Ghost! You are not God and your opinion matters little. Tread lightly when evaluating manifestations and miracles.
(I think typing with a haunted keyboard is like playing Pachinko)
14. If you do not ever hear your shepherd’s voice? You are not one of his sheep. Selah.
15. Expect the manifest presence of God. Settle for nothing less. He is the fire we shall see.
16. “You must prophesy…against many tongues and nations, tribes and kingdoms.” “These signs shall follow them who believe: they shall…speak with other tongues, drink poison, etc…
If you do not prophesy (ie: recount what you hear from God), you either 1) never heard the voice of God, or 2) are holding back. Both are reasons for concern. “This generation will see the full appropriation of his blood.” (Paul Keith Davis) Do not be satisfied with the gifts of the Spirit. Expect to do everything Jesus did. Your life will surpass your expectations, even so. “Do not quench the Spirit.”
