This is called by many, the Trinity or Triune God.
This revelation, and the relationship and intimate voice that follows, is only accessible to a Christian. Many millions of people outside of true faith in Christ are praying to God from a distance. They still spell GOD, G-O-D.
And people outside true faith in Christ are kept from an intimate relationship with their Heavenly Father through their sinful nature. It still separates them from Him. Thus, without Jesus you cannot really know God as Father.
For example, millions of people claim New Age as their “religion” of choice.
New Age teachings promote a loss of God as the glorious, infinite, personal Trinity.
“Humans are simply congealed energy, the All in self-reflective mode. You create your own reality. Both death and morality are an illusion, and hence ‘we are God.’ These teachings not only misunderstand the fallen nature of man and our human condition, but the seriousness of our sin before God. There is no Savior to cleanse our guilty hearts, no personal, loving God to share our tears.”
Yet, the eternal God in all 3 Persons enters the world stage with something unique to Christianity.
For all who are in relationship to Jesus Christ, Enter: agape.
As soon as a person opens their heart in repentance to Christ, His love and His voice are poured out.
It’s a choice every person has to make to say, “Yes!”
Almighty God can become Intimate Abba to a follower of Christ. Love Speaks teaches that all 3 Persons of the Trinity are speaking in this present dispensation!
As Jonathan Edwards once noted after studying the topic of the Triune God extensively,
“I think [the doctrine of the Trinity] to be the highest and deepest of all Divine mysteries.”
As a diamond or special gemstone reflects the light shone upon it in many facets, so God’s glory upon you continually reflects many aspects of His voice to discern and His love to experience, and all 3 Persons of the Trinity are actively involved.
To put it very simply, as you study each way God speaks, think of His contact with you in these terms (while remembering that this is all a mystery):
The Father speaks primarily externally, through His Providence, circumstances, nature and creation, and other ways. These signs of His love are quite literally everywhere. And each sign then bears witness within your spirit, through the Holy Spirit’s confirmation.
“For God (the Father) so loved (agape) the world that He gave His one and only son” (John 3:16).
The Son, Jesus Christ speaks primarily through both His Word (the Bible) and through His Body (other believers). We are all part of the one Body of Christ no matter what our church background. His Word (the Bible) is the foundation of all revelation and the trusted source of confirmation for everything we hear from God.
“The Son of God (Jesus) who loved (agape) me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
The Holy Spirit speaks primarily internally, from within your human spirit, as He now inhabits your heart with the divine Kingdom of God. His voice flows out of your mind and can be discerned by your spirit. And He confirms all direction at least two or three times through both internal and external means.
“I urge you by the love (agape) of the (Holy) Spirit” (Romans 15:30).
Note: The Holy Spirit as a Person comes to abide inside every believer in Jesus Christ. His workings require the believer to actively participate in a sanctifying, holy lifestyle that involves a dying to self and old, selfish priorities.
So throughout this book, perhaps consider a fresh surrender to Jesus Christ, and a fresh commitment to participation with the Holy Spirit, as He leads you to die to yourself and your old ways, and learn new ways to communicate with Him.
Thus, with the Holy Spirit’s help, you can learn to truly listen to God’s multi-faceted voice and follow Christ who said, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24).
