You have all the authority you need. The voice of God is within you - a free gift. It is yours. If today God instructs you that you have a new name, that is all the authority you need. You don't need anyone's permission, and when challenged, stand on it.55 1 Corinthians 16:13 Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Don't back off, don't shrink. It is yours! The gift of God. The same with the Kingdom. If He hands you over a Kingdom, it is yours.56 Luke 22:29 "And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me." Confess Him. Be baptized. Obey His commands. We have only one mediator and that is His son Jesus Christ. A free gift.
Jesus is not like the world, or the worldly governments. He is different.57 John 18:36 Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here." He has offered His Kingdom to anyone who will simply depart from iniquity. That is His seal, "Depart from iniquity," and the Kingdom is yours.58 2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those who are His," and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity." For darkness has no rule where there is light. Light rules.59 John 12:46 "I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness."
The voice of God is everywhere. It is in the Bible, it is in the pastors, it is in the laymen. The voice of God is in abundance, it is all over. But the voice of God that you are liable to is the one that is within you. There are many who will come in His name, but there is only one that you are subject to - the One that is within you.60 Matthew 24:5 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many." Don't go anywhere else, there it is. Yes, listen to the voice of God in other places. There are other people who have travailed, who are also searching for the Kingdom of Heaven. But ultimately, the voice is within you. As you are being refined as gold is refined, that voice of God will be made clearer, it will no longer be foggy.
You will know the voice of God. You also will know the voice of the devil.61 John 10:3-5 "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers." You will know when Satan wants you to worship him, and you will know when God wants you to worship Him. You will find out the tricks of the devil, his snares. "I will give you all the kingdoms of the earth, if you just bow down and worship me," is the voice of Satan.62 Matthew 4:8-9 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me." "You will be persecuted in my name," is the voice of God.63 Matthew 5:11-12 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." You will know the difference between the Spirit of God and the spirit of your flesh. You will learn the difference between the voice of God and the voice of self. You will learn the difference between the will of men and the will of God. The more you resist, the more troubled your times. As you yield to the will of God, you will enter into His peace. And you will suffer the things of this life, because you have entered His glorious peace. You can now stand up to persecutions. You can stand up to injustices, because you have a peace that is greater than all the peace that the world has known.64 John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
