I am not intentionally using anything o be dishonest. It is difficult to explain something of this nature, and I am doing my best, bear with me please. Also, I do not claim to know scripture better than anyone else. I only know what is revealed to me as applicable in my everyday life as I look for answers, and these are the things I try to share. If they are received as dishonesty, perhaps they are intended for someone else. I'm just talking, that's all.
I think that, since or human ears cannot hear God literally ( hence you are probably crazy if you think you did. Even when He spoke in the bible, people thought it was thunder), e speaks through people. You can discern who is really there or Gods purposes and not their own because they will have certain traits that areprevelant in their personalities. These are love, joy, self-control, kindness, peace, patience, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness.
