We looked at HOW to hear from God and we shall continue by looking at WHAT we would hear from the Lord God. Before we begin with the WHAT to hear let us briefly look at what Job a Blameless and Righteous man said about Hearing from God, Job 42:5-6 CEV (5) I heard about you from others; now I have seen you with my own eyes. (6) That’s why I hate myself and sit here in dust and ashes to show my sorrow.
Knowing and doing the WILL of God was so important for Our Lord Jesus Christ, looking at what He taught in Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven, and so must it be important for us too to Know And Do the WILL of God.
(a) Jesus said the following about Himself as recounted by Apostle Paul in his letter to the Jewish Christians in, to the Hebrews 10:5-7 ESV (5) Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, "Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me; (6) in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure. (7) Then I said, 'Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.'"
Matthew 12:47-50 EMTV, “Then one said to Him, "Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You." (48) But He answered and said to him that told Him, "Who is My mother? And who are My brothers?" (49) And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, He said, "Behold; My mother, and My brothers! (50) For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother."
Here Our Lord Jesus is telling you that it is important for Him, that you to Know and Do the will of Jehovah.
(b) The Will of God is with God in Heaven, Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
The WILL of God is written down in Heaven. IT IS WRITTEN DOWN Hebrews 10:7, “Then I said, 'Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.'"
King David, the man after Gods; heart hear the WILL of God and did the WILL of God, Acts 13:36, “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:”
The WILL of God is the thoughts, plans, and the desires of God, that is written down in Heaven for us the Sons of God to KNOW and DO (obey). Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV (8) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. (9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
We have to Call on the Lord and Ask for the WILL of God as Jesus taught us in, “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
Jeremiah 33:3 BBE “Let your cry come to me, and I will give you an answer, and let you see great things and secret things of which you had no knowledge.”
Deuteronomy 29:29 KJV, “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”
I. Mark 1:35 CEV, “Very early the next morning, Jesus got up and went to a place where he could be alone and pray.”
II. Genesis 12:8 KJV, “And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.”
III. Genesis 13:4 KJV, “Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD.”
