The answer is YES. What’s the question?

Yes!A new General Manager assembled all of the employees of a company I worked at, which had just been purchased by a large multi-national group. He said, “This is our guiding principle: The answer is Yes. What’s the question?

This same principle applies to heeding the Father’s word.

When the Father spoke to me for the first time in a very long time (More than 15 years! That’s what disobedience will get you: His silence and the absence of His presence!), He said, Say yes to this, ‘cause it’s not coming around again.From that moment on, the only answer to The Father’s word is “Yes and AMEN!” Within two and a half months, He delivered me out of a hellish relationship; put me together with my mate, and we began a breakneck-speed ride with our Father!

When the Father speaks, you know it’s His voice, and you know instantly that He’s not waiting forever for you to decide to heed what you just heard. When you hear your Father’s voice, heed Him. Do what He says. Act immediately, not later, and watch Him show up and show off, like He did after He ascended:

Now these signs shall fully follow in those who believe: In My name they shall be casting out demons; they will be speaking in new languages; they will be picking up serpents; and if they should be drinking anything deadly, it should under no circumstances be harming them; they will be placing hands on those who are ailing, and ideally will they be having it.” The Lord, indeed, then, after speaking with them, was taken up into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God. Now they, coming away, herald everywhere, the Lord working together with them and confirming the word by the signs following them up. (Mark 16:17-20)

The Lord will work together with you too, confirming His word with signs and wonders. The principle and pattern is alive today.

Here’s a personal example of what happens when we delay acting on the Father’s message:

I learned of an upcoming relative’s marriage six months before the date. No sooner did we get the news than my wife said, “We’re not going.” Five months later, I was still waiting to hear from the Lord, during which time I fielded multiple calls from my mother and sisters, who wondered whether we were coming to the wedding and why I couldn’t give a simple “Yes.”

I heard the Lord’s voice on awakening one morning, only three weeks before the wedding: If the answer had been yes, I would have told you long before now.”

If the Lord isn’t speaking to you directly, don’t think He’s not speaking at all. Like it or not, you might have a blind spot or two, and will deliver His word through someone, like your spouse. If you can’t hear Him through someone He’s using, you may not be able to hear Him at all; worse yet, He may stop talking altogether and, trust me on this, that’s just plain miserable!

My wife boils this down to its essence: “Just hear God and Do what He says.” She’s right. The truth is, it really is that simple.

Blessings and joy in the journey.

Author of GO GOD - Jump On Or Hang On, 'Cause God's Gonna Win!, and a REVENOUS student of the scriptures since 1972, it became clear to me that the original language translations (from Greek and Hebrew) didn't square with the English versions in significant ways...so significant, in fact, that people were once considered heretics for investigating what the original manuscripts REALLY said. The "heretic" label persists in some Christian circles today, when one's perspective calls traditional doctrines into question. Someone once said, "The odds of someone being right is directly proportionate to the number of people trying to prove him or her wrong." Since 1972, the operating principles that ultimately birthed the ScriptureDoc project are these: 1. The word of God was written for regular people, not just theologians...it has to make sense. For that matter God Himself must make sense, otherwise how can we know Him, and what benefit would there be in knowing Him? 2. When the word of God (or God Himself) doesn't make sense, it is our understanding that is lacking, not His word. We need to investigate, educate, expand, and adjust our knowledge, perception, and understanding. 3. The goal is to, "Endeavor to present yourself to God qualified, an unashamed worker, correctly cutting the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15) 4. Last one: "All scripture is inspired by God, and is beneficial for teaching, for exposure, for correction, for discipline in righteousness, that the man [or woman] of God may be equipped, fitted out for every good act." (2 Timothy 3:15-16) 5) OK, one more: "Request and it shall be given you. Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who is requesting is obtaining, and who is seeking is finding, and to him who is knocking it shall be opened." (Matthew 7:7-8) So . . .here's a forum where we look into what the word of God REALLY says, and what it REALLY means. IF you;re happy with what you've learned about God to date, this probably isn't for you; however, if you're open to what may be an alarmingly fresh perspective, jump on in. Join the live study (or by recording), called "Light Up The Scriptures" every Tuesday night at 8:00pm Eastern Time. Email me back for call-in details. Check out the book, "GO GOD!
