God can also speak to us through divine revelation. This is when God shows us something directly in our spirit. I’ve see two types of divine revelation. One is when I am praying, seeking God’s face, and I hear (maybe “feel” is a better word-because its not audible for me) God say something in my heart. The second type is when someone else has heard something from God regarding my life. The latter should always be treated with extreme caution; unfortunately some people manipulate others by placing the words “God says that you need to . . .” in front of their own personal desires. But I believe both are totally valid.
I don’t get how some people don’t believe that God speaks through divine revelation today. Some people believe that God limits his communication with us only through the Bible (which is partly true, but that’s for later). That bugs the snot out of me. The entire book of Revelation was nothing more than a Divine Revelation to the apostle John. The conversion of Saul to Paul was certainly a divine revelation; in fact, the book of Acts is jam packed full of them!
I think that God speaks to us in this way a lot more than we realize. We are just too “loud” to realize it. We need to shut up in order to hear divine revelation more often. Not just audibly but quiet down in our spirits — staying focused on God and remaining moldable.
