Listen to the Spirit

The angel said the following words to John seven times.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches (Rev 2:7).
Jesus said something similar at least four times.
He who has ears, let him hear (Matt 13:9).
These words must be really important.

The first think to note is that the Spirit speaks. He speaks clearly in a language that we can know. He does not speak gobbledegook that we cannot understand.

Secondly, we must listen to his voice. The Holy Spirit loves to speak and longs for his people to listen. The most important ability needed for serving God is to be able to hear the Spirit speak. If we can hear him speak, everything falls into place.

If we cannot hear him, it is unlikely that he has stopped speaking. If all we are getting is confusion, the Spirit has not lost the plot; we are not listening correctly.

I think many people don't understand the voice behind them that says this is the way... Walk in it.
