Those who are born again of the Spirit of God, children of God, they can see the kingdom of God and they can hear the voice of God, but many believers cannot understand why they do not hear nor see God. We read in John 3:1 “Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him:”Rabbi, we know that you have come from God as a teacher for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered and said to him:”Truly truly I say to you unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to Him:”How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” Jesus answered:”Truly, truly, I say to you unless one is born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I say to you, you must be born again. The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Jesus speaks. His sheep hear His voice. They listen to Him and they follow Him. Christian believers cannot understand why they do not hear the voice of God. What is wrong with them? The kingdom of God is not of this world, it is of a different dimension. It is of the spiritual dimension, and a person who is not born again cannot perceive nor experience the kingdom of God, because the natural man, a normal person, trusts in his physical senses, his ears and his eyes and his feeling, his senses. But those who are of the Spirit of God, they have spiritual perception, and they see God, they hear God.
We read in John 14:16. Jesus said to His disciples:”I will ask the Father and He will give you another Helper, that He might be with you forever. That is the Spirit of Truth whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you after a little while. The world will no longer see me but you will see Me, because I live you will live also. In that day you will know that I am in My Father and you in Me and I in you. He who has my Commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me and he who loves me will be loved by my father and I will love him and I will disclose myself to him.” Most professing Christians do not know the voice of God, they do not hear the voice of God. They do not see the kingdom of God because they are expecting a physical manifestation of Jesus Christ. They want to hear Him with their physical ears but He speaks in our spirit, as we also see happened to the Apostle Paul when the risen Jesus appeared to him on the Damascus Road. He heard the voice from heaven that spoke to him, but those who were with him did not hear that voice. He experienced Jesus Christ but the others did not experience Jesus, and Paul also wrote in Romans 1:9 “For God whom I serve in my spirit, in preaching the gospel of His Son, is my witness.”
God speaks to us in our spirit and if we have not been spiritually made alive and if our expectation is not a spiritual revelation of Jesus Christ, then we will not experience Him. We will write it off as something that just came to our mind, something that we cannot physically prove to others. The world is looking for tangible proof of Jesus, they want to physically see Him or else they will not believe. At the same time they are watching a TV and videos and they believe all the trash that they see on the TV and in the videos, but when God speaks to them in their spirit, they do not understand, they do not observe it. They write it off as some psychological phenomenon. Therefor, if a person has experienced Jesus Christ then they put him into psychological ward. They say there’s something wrong with this person.
Those who walk with God, those who know Jesus and experience Him, experience Him in their spirit. They hear His voice and others don’t. They see His kingdom, they understand his revelation, but others don’t. They walk by faith because they have experienced Jesus Christ for real. They experience Him by faith in their spirit and therefore because they believe in His revelation they stay with Him, they follow and they obey Him. The reason why most believers do not realize or observe when Jesus speaks to them, when God reveals Himself to them, is that they have the wrong expectation. They are on a different level. They are operating on the physical level, whereas the kingdom of God is in a different dimension. It is in the spirit, because God is spirit and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
The kingdom of God is not physical, not the things that we see around us, not the churches that the religious people build. The kingdom of God is invisible to this world but visible to those who are born again of the Spirit of God. The natural man, the person who is not born, again does not hear the voice of God, but those who are born of the Spirit of God, they hear the voice of God and they see Jesus Christ in their spirit because He reveals Himself to them. Jesus Christ promised the Holy Spirit, as we read in John chapter 14, and he said to his disciples, I read from verse 19: “After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me because I live, you will live also.”
Those who have obeyed the gospel of Jesus Christ and who have repented and who have received the Holy Spirit, they have spiritual perception. They hear the voice of God and they see the kingdom of God. They are truly born again, they are part of the kingdom of God. Are you born of the Spirit of God? Are you a child of God” Because those who are led by the Spirit of God they are the children of God?
May Jesus bless you.
