In learning to hear the voice of God, there is one central question that everyone wants to know:
HOW DO I KNOW IT’S GOD?
Not everything we hear or see has divine origin.
Another way of asking the question could be, “Is what I have received from God, myself, or the enemy?” To avoid the pitfalls of deception and grow in discernment there are some key questions that need to be asked.
Does the revelation feed my ego or exalt Jesus? Does it seem destructive? Who is being lifted up – self or Jesus? Is it negative, pushy, fearful, or accusative? Is it a violation of God’s nature or the Word of God? Is it instructive, uplifting, and comforting? Does it encourage me to continue in my walk with God? And several more…
Learning to consistently hear from God requires that we apply some important filters. We must:
- Find the origin
- Examine the content
- See the fruit
Scripture outlines some very clear tests for determining whether revelation is from God. Applying these tests consistently and correctly requires practice, but we can learn to hear God and trust whether the revelation is from Him.
In over 40 years of walking in prophetic ministry, James Goll has learned some valuable lessons about the sources of revelation and how to test the spirits.
In this session, James Goll will share stories from some of the challenges he has faced including:
- Encounters in which he has had to scrutinize the source of the revelation
- An intense encounter when a dark messenger appeared in his bedroom
- How to respond when “knowings” or “discernings” come
- A revelation he received giving a glimpse into “divine intelligence”
James wants you to know how to stay grounded in the midst of high-octane encounters. As you apply the principles he shares and puts them into practice in your life, you will gain confidence in hearing God and knowing when the revelation is from Him.
In this session you will learn:
- The 3 sources of revelation
- What questions to ask to determine the source of revelation
- 9 scriptural tests for judging revelation
- Why prophecy today is not inscripturated or perfect in its delivery
- How to prove or judge modern revelation against scripture
- Why discerning of spirits is so important and how to grow in it
James W. Goll is the president of Encounters Network and has traveled around the world sharing the love of Jesus, imparting the power of intercession, prophetic ministry and life in the Spirit. He has recorded numerous classes with corresponding study guides and is the author of more than thirty books, including The Seer, The Lost Art of Intercession, The Coming Israel Awakening and The Lifestyle of a Prophet. James is the father of four wonderful children with a growing number of grandchildren, and makes his home in Franklin, TN.
Blessings to learn to discern and trust the voice of God!
