If you see a thousand books in the body of Christ about the Believer and The Holy Spirit, 999 of those books will be titled "How to hear from God"
Believers ask that question always "How do I hear from God?"
"How do I know it is not just my thoughts but the Holy Spirit speaking
to me"
The emphasis on hearing from God is a little "off" for a new testament believer
The Holy Spirit is no longer outside of you so that he leads you by words only
He is inside of you and he is a person
This means all your senses are now His to use to his good pleasure
He can
show you a vision or a sight
He can make you perceive a smell, a fragrance or a stench if the sick or the demonic is around you
He can make you feel sensations in your body, a tingling, a burning, a chilling sensation, goose pimples, warmth etc
He can make you hear either audibly
or make an impression in your spirit
He can make you taste (sometimes the tip of your tongue is on fire and you feel the heat, sometimes the tip of your tongue feels a sudden sharpness, sometimes your tongues are heavy or feels light
Sometimes your tongue just twists in the
place of prayer and you find yourself speaking another kind of tongues or even speaking a language you have never spoken before in understanding
I remember meeting a lady once. She was pregnant and came to see me with her husband because the pregnancy had been very challenging
As soon as i held her hands to pray with her, I started speaking in tongues. Suddenly she turned to her husband, in the middle of prayer and said "Just like the pastor said just now, I am sorry. This baby is not yours. I just don't know how to tell you the truth. I am very sorry.
I was as shocked as her husband. What she heard while I was praying was different from what I was saying. What was hidden came into light and the burden behind her affliction was lifted.
At another instance, I was in a church after service and two ushers (male) and (female)
started exchanging heated words right from the vestry
It was not unusual of the two of them and the church had wondered for a while how to stop their incessant quarrels.
They both never agree on anything, even though they were both unmarried.
The brother came to me and said "Bro
can you see what sister so and so just did?
I wanted to open my mouth and say "What did she do?"
but what came out of my mouth was "You guys are sleeping with each other!"
He went on hos knees immediately, a spirit of repentance suddenly fell upon him
The lady came out of the
vestry too, saw the two of us and fell on her knees crying. I didn't even say a word to her.
We prayed together and the burden of shame and guilt was lifted
Within a year they were both married to different partners and their homes are still standing
Sometimes he moves you bodily
without any instruction, you just find yourself on your knees praying or on your feet walking somewhere or even driving to a place as led by the spirit.
The inspirational gifts also come to us as we are moved to write
poems, music, stories, instructions, messages, prophecies,
word of
knowledge, word of wisdom
Why limit yourself to hearing from the Holy Spirit only when you can be fully subject to him in every manner of communication?
Audrey Mack told the story of how she had to break her engagement by the instruction of the Holy Spirit. She said she
she didn't know why she was told to walk away from the relationship a few months to the wedding
She said after the breakup, she locked herself in a room to pray in the spirit
After three days of praying and stirring herself up in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit said pack your bag
and go to Florida
She said she packed her bag and went to the airport
She bought a ticket to Florida where she had some relatives
She felt the Holy Spirit was asking her to go spend some time with
her relatives away from her current location
She got to Florida
Her relatives were
in church
She got to their church
She saw a man teaching a group of people
After the teaching, the man walked up to her and the Holy Spirit
said "This is your husband"
The man was a widower, he had been praying that God would bring him his own wife
The church had been trying to
matchmake him with another lady
and he was already considering it
But the moment he saw her, the Holy Spirit told him, that is your wife
They are happily married now and doing great exploits for the gospel
She was moved bodily into destiny fulfillment!
I have found myself moved
several times to do great and mighty feats by the Holy Spirit
It had gotten to a point where I have come to realize that the inconveniences we experience on a journey like a flat tyre or branching at a petrol station to get some fuel are sometimes divinely orchestrated.
I was
once on my way to Iyana Ipaja in Lagos to see a friend, I set out very early in the morning. I got to a point and i had a flat tyre. I looked for a vulcanizer to fix the car. I found one but he was not there. His phone number was boldly written by his shop. I called the number
and somebody picked it. I was told he was sick. He went for a party the previous night and on his way home got bitten by a poisonous rat. He had developed rite bite fever and nobody knew what to do. Luckily, his house was not far from the shop and i went there to pray with him.
He got healed immediately and was strong
enough afterward to fix my tire. He was an unbeliever but he gave his life to Jesus that morning with some other members of his household.
I have been moved all the way from Lagos to Ilorin before to pray for a 70 year old woman for her
healing on her birthday
I have been moved by the Holy Spirit to pray for a lady that had been afflicted on some charms meant for ritual purposes at a location far away from my house in Lagos state. She came into Lagos from the east and I was moved to drive until i got to a point
where a security man approached me and asked if i was a pastor.
He took me to the lady and she was made whole.
The Bible recorded that Jesus was moved by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness and Steven was moved by the Holy Spirit to speak!
In was once in my office, a colleague
showed me a video on his phone, it was the video of a young girl being molested and i had a
splitting headache immediately. My eyes were streaming tears and my body was shaking. I started praying and rebuking the sudden onset of affliction. The Holy Spirit said to me "Why did
you show me an abomination?"
I apologized and the affliction stopped!
He sees the world through our eyes!
It is the extent to which you desire the Holy Spirit to walk with you that He will
It is best to yield the whole of yourself to him & experience His fullness like Christ
Experiencing His Fullness? - gswmi.com/read/experienc… Suddenly she turned to her husband,
in the middle of prayer and said
“Just like the pastor said just now, I
am sorry. This baby is not yours.
I just don’t know how to tell you the
truth. I am very sorry
I was as shocked as her

December 2019, a renowned evangelist departed this world
A lot of believers started sending goodwill messages
This evangelist to them was the greatest example of Jesus to the world in our time
He never took an offering during his crusades
He shared free Bibles and books
He was a
Many told the story of how he negotiated the release of prisoners with state governments and how he ensured that some communities without running water got water
This man of God had been to many nations in Africa preaching the good news and many through him had come to
know Christ
A few days after the evangelist slept in the Lord, a TV station's crew cornered another man of God in America
They met him at the airport and interviewed him
They deliberately asked him questions relating to his private jets and wealthy lifestyle
The TV station had an

And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage (Galatians 2:4).
The Bible tells us about these three groups: false teachers, false prophets, and false brethren
. It also clearly shows us the different things they’ll do in these last days. Could there really be false brethren in churches? Absolutely! False brethren are those who come in amongst God’s people, not for their love for Jesus Christ, but for a different purpose.
Our opening
verse says they come in unawares, to spy out our liberty in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage. They present a false image, in order to gain some advantage.
The Bible says, “And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false (cunning)

He was a false brother
Of course, he didn't introduce himself as such
He came talking about the supernatural he had seen or read about and the ones he had done by the help of the Holy Spirit
He dropped a lot of big names, men of God with whom he had worked and ministered
It was a
very light conversation
"I believe we can do a lot together," the brother said
He merely nodded
He enjoyed their talk and soon after then they went to have lunch together
The brother didn't have a job and things were tight
He was the one who footed the bill for the lunch
packed a full plate and even got take away packs for his wife
He deduced the brother must have been very hungry
He even paid for the Uber ride that took the brother home
A week later, the brother was back
This time he came with a lady
The brother said the lady had some spiritual

It was when i was watching the series Marco Polo that I saw something I could use to describe my condition right after graduation.
There was this monk in the series who single-handedly fought and defeated many warriors when Ghenghis Khan and his forces invaded his monastery
the monk was captured alive
The King had a thing for extraordinary talent and his general recognized this monk as such
When the monk was taken back to the king, the king told him he would want the monk to become the official martial arts teacher of the royal house
The monk was
All he wanted to do was escape and go back to the monastery which had since been destroyed
When the king realised that the monk wont do his bidding, the king instructed that the monk's eyes be blinded with a dangerous snake's venom
After the deed had been done, the King

It was my mother that called me from Ibadan
She said she got a phone call from the student's affairs department of the school
I have been summoned to face the school's disciplinary committee on allegations of fraud
The first thing that struck me was a chilling sensation in my
I had written my examinations in fear and trepidation
My heart was always racing
It is true that a sinner will run even without being pursued
I had tried as much as possible to persuade some of the students that bought the shares I sold for the fraudulent man to be patient
with me
I told them I would sort it out with the bank
It was a lot of empty words
I knew I had dug a hole too big for my wits to come out of
I was just hoping that somehow none of them would take it up with the school authorities
I was wrong; the case had been reported to the

I learned a bitter lesson about money when I was an undergraduate; when you are in a desperate situation that involves a financial need and you have no legal means of raising the money needed to meet the need, the best thing to do is wait for a miracle or allow the worst to
Any other alternative apart from the ones listed above will get you into big trouble
No matter how desperate you are and how appealing the alternative may seem, it will never be worth it in the long run.
I had trusted in God for my school fees from 100 level and he always
came through
Sometimes at the last minute and at other times at the right time but by the time i got to the second semester of my final, i had gotten tired of the process of fasting and praying and calling relatives and applying for scholarships and writing letters to churches
