There are 2 kinds of christians. Those that hear the Spirit. Those who don't. The twain shall never meet. Neither can 'two walk together except they agree.' The majority are the ones that cannot hear. A remnant/few who does hear. The first century christians had the same problem. Drove Paul crazy. It got so bad that Paul concluded with 'all the 'churches'/ekklesia's in Asia have forsaken me.' This will be the outcome for those who truly hear Him. They'll sit alone. What say you? God bless.
I wished I would have read through this thread sooner. I've learned a great deal from it so thank you OP for the topic and thanks to all for the great discussion and insight.
There are 2 kinds of Christians. The new ones and the old ones. Now this buisness of those that hear and/or do not hear the spirit,, all I can say about that is that I know not of a small still voice that I was always taught about , but instead, a loud thunderous one that will collapse you to the ground and make you question your sanity. It moves you in a way that I know only few feel. I completly understand where the OP is comming from and gained a ton of insight from everyone here and that will better me in discussions with my fellow brothers...
Whoo hooooooo! It burns inside- dont you feel that??
I breath "life" every day and wish the same for all you.
Thanks again for the good read!
