  • 00:00:03.070 --> 00:00:06.040
  • (Music Starts) Coming up on Christ for All Nations...
  • 00:00:08.010 --> 00:00:11.110
  • ART THOMAS- We were created to have a relationship with
  • 00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:14.100
  • God. And if that's true, then you are physiologically
  • 00:00:14.140 --> 00:00:17.200
  • designed to hear God's voice. And that means hearing God's
  • 00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:19.140
  • voice will be the most natural thing you ever experience. So,
  • 00:00:19.180 --> 00:00:24.070
  • instead of waiting for some wild, crazy, out of the
  • 00:00:24.110 --> 00:00:27.000
  • ordinary, unnatural thing to happen, just recognize
  • 00:00:27.040 --> 00:00:29.260
  • probably it's gonna be really natural.
  • 00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:32.080
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:42.140
  • REINHARD BONNKE- He has come to break every chain
  • 00:00:42.180 --> 00:00:44.140
  • and to unlock every prison door.
  • 00:00:44.180 --> 00:00:48.190
  • DANIEL KOLENDA- He turns darkness into light.
  • 00:00:50.240 --> 00:00:54.240
  • He turns sin into salvation. He turns bondage into freedom.
  • 00:00:54.280 --> 00:01:00.040
  • And He changes us from the inside out.
  • 00:01:00.080 --> 00:01:02.160
  • (Music)
  • 00:01:02.200 --> 00:01:12.250
  • (Background music) DANIEL KOLENDA- Hello everybody. Welcome to another
  • 00:01:12.290 --> 00:01:14.220
  • broadcast of Christ for All Nations. I'm your host, Daniel

  • touch with us today, I want to send this to you. It's a

  • little booklet called, How to Receive a Miracle from God.
  • 00:01:47.070 --> 00:01:50.000
  • It's written by our wonderful, favorite evangelist, Reinhard

  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:59.090
  • incredible, incredible principles from God's Word
  • 00:01:59.130 --> 00:02:01.280
  • that are going to prepare you for a miracle not only now,

  • but through the rest of your life, in Jesus' name. So, send
  • 00:02:05.110 --> 00:02:07.260
  • that to us. We'll be praying for you in a few minutes. But
  • 00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:10.160
  • in the meantime, I'm gonna introduce to you a very
  • 00:02:10.200 --> 00:02:13.050
  • special guest that we have with us today. His name is Art
  • 00:02:13.090 --> 00:02:15.270
  • Thomas. He is a missionary evangelist that travels the
  • 00:02:16.010 --> 00:02:18.250
  • world preaching the Gospel, and seeing amazing signs,
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:21.180
  • wonders, and miracles. He's also a filmmaker, and that's
  • 00:02:21.220 --> 00:02:24.170
  • how you may know him from this program because we've had him
  • 00:02:24.210 --> 00:02:27.050
  • on the program before talking about his film. Remind me of the name of it.
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:30.210
  • ART- Paid in Full.
  • 00:02:30.250 --> 00:02:32.020
  • DANIEL- Paid in Full, which is a documentary about
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:33.280
  • miracles and healings. I think one of your gifts as a
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:37.080
  • filmmaker is that you're able not just to take people on a
  • 00:02:37.120 --> 00:02:40.060
  • very interesting, entertaining journey, but you're actually
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.260
  • able to teach through that film in a way that brings people into the experience
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:47.250
  • ART- Thanks.
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:49.040
  • DANIEL- of the thing that's on the film. And I assume
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:50.100
  • that was kind of the point of your films. Right?
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:51.230
  • ART- Yeah. I don't really care to just show God doing
  • 00:02:51.270 --> 00:02:54.190
  • stuff, which is awesome. I want to on top of that,
  • 00:02:54.230 --> 00:02:57.210
  • train and equip the viewer to do the same things.
  • 00:02:57.250 --> 00:02:59.240
  • DANIEL- Yeah. And so, your last film was about healing
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:03.030
  • miracles. And you're, you're working on another film
  • 00:03:03.070 --> 00:03:06.110
  • now that we're gonna talk about today
  • 00:03:06.150 --> 00:03:07.260
  • ART- Yeah.
  • 00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:09.020
  • DANIEL- that's about hearing the voice of God.
  • 00:03:09.060 --> 00:03:10.060
  • ART- Yeah.
  • 00:03:10.100 --> 00:03:11.140
  • DANIEL- And very much the same thing where you're,
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:12.240
  • you're showing amazing experiences of people hearing
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:16.100
  • the voice of God, or you're showing people that are, you
  • 00:03:16.140 --> 00:03:20.010
  • know, great men of God, great preachers around the world,
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:22.000
  • kind of teaching on this. But you are equipping the viewer
  • 00:03:22.040 --> 00:03:26.000
  • to actually step out in this thing. Before we talk about
  • 00:03:26.040 --> 00:03:27.290
  • it, I want to show a little clip, just so you can get an
  • 00:03:28.030 --> 00:03:30.020
  • idea of what we're talking about. And then we'll be right back. Watch this.
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:33.210
  • (Music)
  • 00:03:33.250 --> 00:03:35.020
  • JONATHAN AMMON- God's voice sounds like God's nature and
  • 00:03:35.060 --> 00:03:38.030
  • God's character. We know that his voice always sounds like
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:40.240
  • love because He is love. It's kind. It's gracious. It's filled with power.
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:46.110
  • JEREMIAH JOHNSON- God says He's compassionate, He's
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:48.180
  • merciful, He's slow to anger, He's abounding in love,
  • 00:03:48.220 --> 00:03:52.290
  • He's full of truth and trustworthiness. And lastly, He's a just God.
  • 00:03:53.030 --> 00:03:58.160
  • JONATHAN- But He also speaks in a way that we can hear
  • 00:03:58.200 --> 00:04:01.030
  • and understand. We are His children and He speaks in a
  • 00:04:01.070 --> 00:04:04.120
  • way that makes sense and that can be clear to us.
  • 00:04:04.160 --> 00:04:07.260
  • RUSTY RUSTENBACH- You know, The Navigators that I'm part
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:10.050
  • of are really big on Bible study. So, we go through a
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:12.170
  • book, but I probably spend three, four, five hours in a
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:16.000
  • chapter. And, and I, I think, I'd have these great like
  • 00:04:16.040 --> 00:04:20.290
  • thoughts about the chapter. And I thought, Wow. And I, and
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:24.010
  • I, I thought it was due to my great intellect and insight.
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:27.220
  • And later I realized that God was communicating to me.
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:32.010
  • ANTHONY BUTTS- The Lord would never ever tempt us or
  • 00:04:32.050 --> 00:04:35.120
  • direct us to do something antithetical to the Word
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:38.250
  • of God, or against what the Bible says.
  • 00:04:38.290 --> 00:04:41.290
  • MAN 1- So, when we open the Bible, we open the Word of
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:44.270
  • God, there's always something that the Holy Spirit is
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:48.080
  • saying through that, because ultimately He's the author.
  • 00:04:48.120 --> 00:04:51.290
  • ART- The Scriptures are a window into the heart of God.
  • 00:04:52.030 --> 00:04:56.030
  • In fact, they're the heart of God on paper.
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:59.130
  • MAN #2- The Bible says that He has put His word above His
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:02.150
  • name. This means that the Lord really, really values the
  • 00:05:02.190 --> 00:05:06.260
  • power and the, the sincerity, and the weight of His Word.
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:11.150
  • DANIEL- I do not think that a person who is not studying the
  • 00:05:11.190 --> 00:05:15.000
  • Scriptures and who is not in the Word of God can honestly
  • 00:05:15.040 --> 00:05:18.120
  • say that they are interested in the voice of God. You can't
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:21.290
  • say, I'm seeking God's will, and I'm listening to hear
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:25.010
  • God's voice, if you're not reading the Scriptures,
  • 00:05:25.050 --> 00:05:27.030
  • because that is the basis and that is what God has already
  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:30.050
  • revealed to us. There is a principle, it's not my idea,
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:33.290
  • it's Jesus' idea that He who's faithful and little will be
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:36.060
  • made ruler over much. If you're not faithful to steward
  • 00:05:36.100 --> 00:05:40.120
  • the words that God has given us through the Scriptures,
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:43.040
  • then you are never gonna be the person that God begins to
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:45.190
  • reveal deep mysteries to on a one-on-one basis. It all begins with the Word of God.
  • 00:05:45.230 --> 00:05:50.130
  • JEREMIAH- You know, a lot of people that walk up to me and,
  • 00:05:50.170 --> 00:05:52.230
  • and ask me for a Word, I love to say, God says, Read your Bible.
  • 00:05:52.270 --> 00:05:57.190
  • MAN #3- When you read the Word of God, you've got to
  • 00:05:57.230 --> 00:05:59.140
  • expect God to speak to you through that Word; which means
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:03.050
  • you're not reading that like any book. You're not reading
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:06.080
  • it just to get information. You're reading it to see Jesus through the Word.
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:11.270
  • MAN #4- I mean, the rules are important, but I don't study
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:13.130
  • the Word for the rules. You know, that was, that was the
  • 00:06:13.170 --> 00:06:16.120
  • Pharisees way. I study the Word because I want to know
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:19.090
  • how God thinks. I want to know how God feels.
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:22.290
  • ART- When you read the Bible, you're learning what God's
  • 00:06:23.030 --> 00:06:25.220
  • voice feels like. You discover His likes and dislikes. And
  • 00:06:25.260 --> 00:06:31.050
  • especially when you study Jesus, you're seeing God in action.
  • 00:06:31.090 --> 00:06:36.250
  • (Music)
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:40.080
  • (Background music) DANIEL- So, let's talk about this, Art, 'cause this is a
  • 00:06:40.120 --> 00:06:42.260
  • subject that a lot of people are very, very interested in.
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:46.170
  • ART- Yes.
  • 00:06:46.210 --> 00:06:47.280
  • DANIEL- I guess that's why you made the film. What is the
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:49.090
  • big misconception that people have about the voice of God?
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:53.000
  • ART- Huh. I think most folks are out there waiting for the
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:55.120
  • sky to rip open and a big booming voice to say, This
  • 00:06:55.160 --> 00:06:58.030
  • is God. Follow Me. And the reality is, I like to tell
  • 00:06:58.070 --> 00:07:01.100
  • people, you know, we were created to have a relationship
  • 00:07:01.140 --> 00:07:04.220
  • with God. And if that's true, then you are physiologically
  • 00:07:04.260 --> 00:07:08.180
  • designed to hear God's voice, to have that interaction with
  • 00:07:08.220 --> 00:07:12.040
  • Him. And that means hearing God's voice will be the most
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:14.290
  • natural thing you ever experience. So, instead of
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:17.210
  • waiting for some wild, crazy, out of the ordinary, unnatural
  • 00:07:17.250 --> 00:07:21.180
  • thing to happen, just recognize probably it's gonna
  • 00:07:21.220 --> 00:07:24.260
  • be really natural. And it's, it's, might feel like your own
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:28.060
  • thoughts, could be a picture in your mind, could be a
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:31.010
  • dream, could be an impression or a feeling. And of course,
  • 00:07:31.050 --> 00:07:34.090
  • He does talk in those more fantastical ways, if you will.
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:37.040
  • But when I look through Scripture, it's like, like I
  • 00:07:37.080 --> 00:07:41.030
  • often teach people about this and I'll share stories about,
  • 00:07:41.070 --> 00:07:44.180
  • you know, angelic encounters, and meeting Jesus, and these
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:49.210
  • crazy experiences. And they're like, Man, I wish I had that
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:52.230
  • too. I'm like, it's great. You should want those things.
  • 00:07:52.270 --> 00:07:56.050
  • With that said, Jesus said to Thomas, Blessed are those who
  • 00:07:56.090 --> 00:07:58.290
  • have not seen and yet they believe. And there's a
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:01.190
  • blessing that comes with believing without seeing. So,
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:04.200
  • I like to tell people, you know, if, if I've had these
  • 00:08:04.240 --> 00:08:07.240
  • encounters, I look through the Scripture, I'm like, you know,
  • 00:08:07.280 --> 00:08:10.170
  • when Peter had a wild, crazy encounter, it's because
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:13.030
  • God needed to get through his thick head.
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:14.250
  • DANIEL- Yeah.
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:16.010
  • ART- You know, he wasn't gonna go preach to the
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:17.130
  • Gentiles any other way. And I think a lot of my case, these
  • 00:08:17.170 --> 00:08:20.040
  • wild, crazy encounters, was 'cause God couldn't get
  • 00:08:20.080 --> 00:08:21.270
  • through to me any other way. So, I'm like, you know,
  • 00:08:22.010 --> 00:08:24.200
  • there's a blessing that comes from believing without seeing.
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:27.110
  • And if I only ever needed to hear that still small voice to
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:31.080
  • follow Jesus faithfully for my whole life, I think there
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:34.100
  • would be a greater blessing than, than otherwise.
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:36.220
  • DANIEL- Yeah.
  • 00:08:36.260 --> 00:08:38.040
  • ART- Besides that, I've seen that He, He always speaks in a
  • 00:08:38.080 --> 00:08:40.110
  • way that requires faith, 'cause He never wants to rob
  • 00:08:40.150 --> 00:08:42.190
  • you of the blessing that comes
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:43.240
  • DANIEL- Right.
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:45.050
  • ART- from believing without seeing. So, even in the wild,
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:47.030
  • crazy encounters I've had, there's always been this
  • 00:08:47.070 --> 00:08:49.220
  • little component that's like, Gosh, was that, was that real?
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:53.250
  • Did that just happen? Did I hear God? And you have to step
  • 00:08:53.290 --> 00:08:57.210
  • out in faith and trust and even in the midst of the big stuff.
  • 00:08:57.250 --> 00:09:00.210
  • DANIEL- I, I've always thought, you know, there's a
  • 00:09:00.250 --> 00:09:03.130
  • Scripture, I think it's in the Psalms where He said, where
  • 00:09:03.170 --> 00:09:04.290
  • the Lord says, I will guide you with my eye. And I, I've
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:07.020
  • often said that that's actually the gold prize.
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:12.190
  • It goes to the one that's so sensitive to the voice of God
  • 00:09:12.230 --> 00:09:15.200
  • that they don't need the 2x4 between the eyes.
  • 00:09:15.240 --> 00:09:17.240
  • ART- Right.
  • 00:09:17.280 --> 00:09:19.040
  • DANIEL- That they're sensitive to even the, the
  • 00:09:19.080 --> 00:09:20.150
  • small inflections in His eyes. I remember when I was a kid,
  • 00:09:20.190 --> 00:09:23.160
  • my dad was a pastor, and when I'd be goofing around in
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:25.240
  • church, my dad from behind the pulpit could just give me
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:28.030
  • a look. And that look could communicate a volume of information.
  • 00:09:28.070 --> 00:09:32.140
  • ART- Yes.
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:33.250
  • DANIEL- And that's how it is when you know someone; that
  • 00:09:33.290 --> 00:09:35.050
  • even their looks, their mannerisms communicate to you.
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:37.070
  • I think that's where the Lord wants us. One of the things
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:38.220
  • that I, I'm hearing from what you're saying, and I, I really
  • 00:09:38.260 --> 00:09:42.110
  • like it, is that you're, you're trying to in a sense
  • 00:09:42.150 --> 00:09:46.150
  • demystify something that people have made so
  • 00:09:46.190 --> 00:09:48.210
  • complicated, and mysterious, and even weird, and bring it
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:53.120
  • down to the level where ordinary people can begin to hear the voice of God.
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:57.190
  • ART- Yeah. Well, we even talk about prophetic ministry, how
  • 00:09:57.230 --> 00:09:59.270
  • it's like, you know, we, it's kind of become this spooky
  • 00:10:00.010 --> 00:10:03.060
  • thing, and you know, Thus saith the Lord; you're talking
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:05.240
  • in King James English and all that. And realistically to,
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:09.250
  • every believer can hear God's voice. Jesus said, My sheep
  • 00:10:09.290 --> 00:10:12.220
  • hear My voice. And to prophesy is just to hear God's voice for somebody else.
  • 00:10:12.260 --> 00:10:17.090
  • DANIEL- Right.
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:18.200
  • ART- You know, the Bible says, God's thoughts toward
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:20.020
  • you outnumber the sand on the seashore. And it's not hard to
  • 00:10:20.060 --> 00:10:23.010
  • find a grain of sand on the beach. And if I have the mind
  • 00:10:23.050 --> 00:10:26.090
  • of Christ, which Scripture says, then the beach is in me.
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:29.100
  • So, at any moment, I can just ask the Lord, Lord, what do
  • 00:10:29.140 --> 00:10:31.140
  • you think about this person? And kind, loving, encouraging,
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:35.060
  • comforting thoughts might come to me. I would suggest that is
  • 00:10:35.100 --> 00:10:38.110
  • very likely the voice of the Lord giving you
  • 00:10:38.150 --> 00:10:40.260
  • something that's going to build somebody up.
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:43.150
  • DANIEL- So, do you feel like, I guess two things, Number 1,
  • 00:10:43.190 --> 00:10:46.000
  • do you feel like God is always speaking? In other words, you
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:48.220
  • could always hear Him at any time? And Number 2, do you
  • 00:10:48.260 --> 00:10:52.070
  • think that it's for everyone to be able to sense and hear that?
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:55.110
  • ART- Good questions. I think I'll start with the second
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:57.060
  • one. Yes, it's for everyone 'cause as Jesus said, My sheep
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:11:00.020
  • hear My voice. So, that's for all. The prophecy of Joel was
  • 00:11:00.060 --> 00:11:05.140
  • that a day would come when your sons and daughters will
  • 00:11:05.180 --> 00:11:07.260
  • prophesy, young men see visions, old men dream dreams.
  • 00:11:08.000 --> 00:11:10.100
  • Even on my servants, both men and women, I'll pour out
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:12.250
  • my Spirit in those days. Prophetic ministry is for
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:15.250
  • everybody. No question about that. Now is God always
  • 00:11:15.290 --> 00:11:19.040
  • speaking? Well, yes-ish. mean, if you think about it,
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:22.220
  • He's having running dialogue with hundreds of thousands
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:26.000
  • if not millions of people simultaneously around the
  • 00:11:26.040 --> 00:11:28.110
  • world. I think there are moments when He might not be
  • 00:11:28.150 --> 00:11:32.200
  • actively speaking to me. In which case I need to be
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:37.070
  • deliberate in saying, You know, I'm not gonna try and
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:39.270
  • make something up. I really want to hear Him speak. I do
  • 00:11:40.010 --> 00:11:44.210
  • believe that there are times when He is speaking that we're
  • 00:11:44.250 --> 00:11:46.270
  • not listening. And that's the stuff we want to really kind
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:49.210
  • of, kind of weed out so that we can have that ear tuned to His heart.
  • 00:11:49.250 --> 00:11:52.190
  • DANIEL- So, would you say that you feel like you're
  • 00:11:52.230 --> 00:11:55.100
  • wired by nature? Like you have a, a tendency to be sensitive
  • 00:11:55.140 --> 00:12:02.020
  • to the voice of God? Or is it something that you've had to develop in your life?
  • 00:12:02.060 --> 00:12:06.000
  • ART- Oh my goodness. I, think I was like, aah maybe...
  • 00:12:06.040 --> 00:12:08.060
  • Like I grew up in a home where hearing God's voice was just
  • 00:12:08.100 --> 00:12:11.000
  • something we talked about like it was normal; my parents, at
  • 00:12:11.040 --> 00:12:14.020
  • least. You know, my dad was a car salesman and he'd come
  • 00:12:14.060 --> 00:12:16.210
  • home from work, and we'd be sitting at the dinner table,
  • 00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:18.260
  • and he's talk about, you know, this audible voice that told
  • 00:12:19.000 --> 00:12:22.000
  • him to do something. And I'm like, Wow, that's amazing. Or
  • 00:12:22.040 --> 00:12:25.010
  • my mom would share some story about how, you know, like the
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:27.240
  • whole reason I was born was because my mom was 41, and
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:31.000
  • the Holy Spirit told her to have another baby.
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:33.040
  • DANIEL- Hmm.
  • 00:12:33.080 --> 00:12:34.190
  • ART- And, and here I am. So, if not for the voice of God,
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:36.110
  • I wouldn't be doing this. But it's kind of like I want, I
  • 00:12:36.150 --> 00:12:43.170
  • wanted so bad to have those experiences that my parents
  • 00:12:43.210 --> 00:12:45.210
  • were having, but I didn't really know how to navigate
  • 00:12:45.250 --> 00:12:48.090
  • into that. I was always just kind of waiting for that
  • 00:12:48.130 --> 00:12:50.130
  • audible voice in my ear. And when I was about 17 years old
  • 00:12:50.170 --> 00:12:53.250
  • is when I, I finally found out it doesn't have to be that
  • 00:12:53.290 --> 00:12:57.040
  • complicated. And I started listening like crazy. I
  • 00:12:57.080 --> 00:13:00.090
  • wanted... I mean, the Bible told me I'm supposed to
  • 00:13:00.130 --> 00:13:02.030
  • eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially that I may
  • 00:13:02.070 --> 00:13:04.080
  • prophesy. So, I would, I got a summer job. I'd blow every
  • 00:13:04.120 --> 00:13:08.180
  • paycheck at the Charismatic aisle of the book store,
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:11.180
  • (Chuckling) buying anything on spiritual gifts and especially
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:14.060
  • prophesy. And I devoured it. And the first thing I learned
  • 00:13:14.100 --> 00:13:17.090
  • was I couldn't learn my way into a spiritual gift. You
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:20.150
  • know, I couldn't, I couldn't get enough information that
  • 00:13:20.190 --> 00:13:22.270
  • would make me prophesy. But all that information did help
  • 00:13:23.010 --> 00:13:27.100
  • me recognize it when it was happening. So I was, I kind of
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:30.190
  • knew what I was looking for now. And so, I was probably 17
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:34.290
  • or 18 years old when it really started becoming a normal
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:37.260
  • experience in my life; seeing visions, and all that. And I
  • 00:13:38.000 --> 00:13:43.000
  • just kind of developed that over time. And I, I think
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:45.230
  • everybody kind of goes through season where they're hearing
  • 00:13:45.270 --> 00:13:48.270
  • more, hearing less, and you're just kind of figuring it out
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:52.100
  • as you go; 'cause it's a relationship really.
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:54.140
  • DANIEL- So, what, what would you say to the person that
  • 00:13:54.180 --> 00:13:58.220
  • just, they don't feel like they can hear from God. Maybe
  • 00:13:58.260 --> 00:14:01.240
  • they've never heard the voice of God, or maybe they haven't
  • 00:14:01.280 --> 00:14:04.270
  • heard it in a long time. Or when they have heard, it's not
  • 00:14:05.010 --> 00:14:06.160
  • been very clear or profound. What would you say to that
  • 00:14:06.200 --> 00:14:09.090
  • person? How do you help them come up to the next level?
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:11.270
  • ART-.Well, in John, 6:44, I believe it's 44-46, right in
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:15.260
  • that window, Jesus says: No one comes to Me unless the
  • 00:14:16.000 --> 00:14:18.290
  • Father who sent Me draws them. And I'll raise them up at the
  • 00:14:19.030 --> 00:14:21.080
  • last day. For it's written in the prophets they shall all be
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:23.170
  • taught by God. Everyone who's heard and learned from the
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:27.000
  • Father comes to Me. So, according to Jesus, if you
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:30.110
  • hadn't heard God's voice, you wouldn't have even come to
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:32.100
  • Him. Now before anybody gets scared and says, Well wait a
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:35.000
  • minute. I didn't hear His voice. Am I a Christian? Let's
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:37.140
  • think about what that means. I mean, when you gave your life
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:40.060
  • to Jesus, was it because the sky ripped open and a big
  • 00:14:40.100 --> 00:14:44.020
  • booming voice said, Follow Me. Or was it because maybe you
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:47.260
  • were in the midst of a crisis moment, or maybe you just
  • 00:14:48.000 --> 00:14:50.010
  • heard the Gospel for the first time, and something inside of
  • 00:14:50.050 --> 00:14:52.290
  • you was going, Yes, this is it. Go that way. That was the
  • 00:14:53.030 --> 00:14:56.230
  • voice of the Lord. And so, you may not have realized it was
  • 00:14:56.270 --> 00:15:00.090
  • Him, but there's basically to that person, there's one of
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:03.030
  • two options; either you're already following Jesus, in
  • 00:15:03.070 --> 00:15:05.160
  • which case you did hear God's voice. You just didn't realize
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:08.010
  • it. And you just listen to Him the same way. It's that, that
  • 00:15:08.050 --> 00:15:11.020
  • inner knowing that, that you had when you came to
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:13.280
  • salvation. Or you've never come to salvation. In which
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:17.070
  • case, it's time to listen to His voice now. That drawing
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:20.210
  • you're feeling right now, that's Him saying, Come to Me.
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:23.100
  • I want you to know Me.
  • 00:15:23.140 --> 00:15:24.280
  • DANIEL- Wow. So, I mean, really what you're helping
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:26.290
  • people do is just recognize that. They're probably hearing
  • 00:15:27.030 --> 00:15:30.020
  • from God a lot more than they realize already.
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:32.200
  • ART- Oh, absolutely.
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:34.020
  • DANIEL- And if they can learn to give attention to what
  • 00:15:34.060 --> 00:15:35.290
  • they're already receiving, it grows. One of the things I've
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:38.130
  • said about spiritual gifts is there's this principle that
  • 00:15:38.170 --> 00:15:41.100
  • stewardship is the avenue by which everything increases in
  • 00:15:41.140 --> 00:15:45.170
  • the kingdom. And that includes spiritual gifts. So, you know,
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:48.240
  • you pay attention to the small promptings of the Lord, and
  • 00:15:48.280 --> 00:15:52.280
  • they grow louder and more clear. And you begin to
  • 00:15:53.020 --> 00:15:56.190
  • experience more profound things as you give attention
  • 00:15:56.230 --> 00:15:59.170
  • to it. I want to play another clip from this because it's,
  • 00:15:59.210 --> 00:16:02.260
  • it's really powerful. Here, here's another clip from Art Thomas's film.
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:06.240
  • (Music)
  • 00:16:06.280 --> 00:16:08.080
  • ART- So now, Debbie had ministered healing on the
  • 00:16:08.120 --> 00:16:10.030
  • street to a complete stranger. But she still wanted to hear God's voice for someone.
  • 00:16:10.070 --> 00:16:16.120
  • MAN #5- So then we go to the mall. And I just wanted a
  • 00:16:16.160 --> 00:16:18.290
  • coffee 'cause, actually I didn't get a lot of sleep so I
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:21.080
  • wanted some caffeine. So, we go to get an iced coffee. And
  • 00:16:21.120 --> 00:16:24.250
  • as we go up to the counter, I asked Debbie, I said, Hey,
  • 00:16:24.290 --> 00:16:27.240
  • Debbie, is God giving you anything for the gal at the counter.
  • 00:16:27.280 --> 00:16:31.040
  • DEBBIE-
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:56.280
  • MAN #5- So, we went to pay for it.
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:59.130
  • DEBBIE-
  • 00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:21.280
  • GIRL- She just told me that I was special and that God
  • 00:17:22.020 --> 00:17:23.220
  • wanted me to know that He had a plan for me. And I wasn't
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:26.250
  • alone. It's nice. I've been feeling pretty alone lately,
  • 00:17:26.290 --> 00:17:29.250
  • so it's nice to hear that.
  • 00:17:29.290 --> 00:17:31.090
  • ART- So, have you ever done anything like that before?
  • 00:17:31.130 --> 00:17:33.130
  • DEBBIE- No. (Chuckling)
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:38.020
  • No.
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:48.280
  • ART- So, what do you think about that?
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:50.120
  • DEBBIE-
  • 00:17:50.160 --> 00:18:04.130
  • ART- That's awesome.
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:05.220
  • DEBBIE- So, yeah.
  • 00:18:05.260 --> 00:18:07.190
  • MAN #5- Debbie was so excited that she got to hear God's
  • 00:18:07.230 --> 00:18:09.000
  • voice so specifically. And the girl behind the counter was
  • 00:18:09.040 --> 00:18:10.190
  • just amazed that God knew her so well that He even told her
  • 00:18:10.230 --> 00:18:15.050
  • what instrument she used to play with. So, that was the fun day yesterday.
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:18.060
  • (Music)
  • 00:18:18.100 --> 00:18:22.220
  • (Background music) DANIEL- That's, that's really powerful. Just watching that
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:25.070
  • lady have that experience, I could feel the anointing on
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:29.160
  • that. It's really powerful. You know, one thing people
  • 00:18:29.200 --> 00:18:33.190
  • might wonder is, you know, why, why would God tell this
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:38.050
  • lady that that girl plays the violin. What's the point of
  • 00:18:38.090 --> 00:18:41.020
  • God telling you something that that person already knows about themselves?
  • 00:18:41.060 --> 00:18:44.140
  • ART- (Chuckling) Well, it's, it really gets people's
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:47.010
  • attention. I mean, why would God the Father through the
  • 00:18:47.050 --> 00:18:49.290
  • Holy Spirit tell Jesus that the woman at the well was on
  • 00:18:50.030 --> 00:18:52.190
  • her fifth guy, you know. It's, it's like those kind of things
  • 00:18:52.230 --> 00:18:57.080
  • awaken us. And that woman's response was, Sir, I perceive
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:19:00.180
  • you're a prophet. It kind of awakens a person that this
  • 00:19:00.220 --> 00:19:03.180
  • person has a message to share that is divine.
  • 00:19:03.220 --> 00:19:06.260
  • And so, you know, Debbie, the woman in the film, she could
  • 00:19:07.000 --> 00:19:10.280
  • have walked up to that girl and said, God has a plan for
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:13.110
  • your life, and all that. But I don't know if the girl would
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:15.220
  • have recognized that there was a divine message being given
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:19.080
  • to her, unless there had been that attention-grabbing,
  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:22.050
  • suddenly there's a stranger who knows me. How could that be possible.
  • 00:19:22.090 --> 00:19:25.270
  • DANIEL- Yeah. And, and Debbie had never experienced anything like that in her life.
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:29.270
  • ART- No.
  • 00:19:30.010 --> 00:19:31.100
  • DANIEL- With just a little bit of help, she was able to flow
  • 00:19:31.140 --> 00:19:34.000
  • in something that she probably thought was only for people that are on television.
  • 00:19:34.040 --> 00:19:37.150
  • ART- Right.
  • 00:19:37.190 --> 00:19:38.260
  • DANIEL- You know, people like you. And I think this is so
  • 00:19:39.000 --> 00:19:40.020
  • important that it's... You know, you mentioned it
  • 00:19:40.060 --> 00:19:42.030
  • already, Jesus said, My sheep hear My voice, and I know
  • 00:19:42.070 --> 00:19:44.180
  • them, and they follow Me. So, what that means is, if you're
  • 00:19:44.220 --> 00:19:47.140
  • a Christian, you hear His voice. You wouldn't be a
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:50.020
  • Christian if you didn't. And you've been hearing His voice
  • 00:19:50.060 --> 00:19:53.090
  • since the day you got saved, whether you recognize that as
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:56.160
  • His voice or not. And so, I think it's so important that
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:59.200
  • we help people by teaching them some of these principles,
  • 00:19:59.240 --> 00:20:02.280
  • which is what you're doing in this film.
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:05.110
  • (Music)
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:09.020

  • (Music)
  • 00:21:02.230 --> 00:21:13.040
  • (Background music) DANIEL- Art, you know, we're gonna pray for some prayer
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:16.000
  • requests here in just a moment. And I know there
  • 00:21:16.040 --> 00:21:18.210
  • are people here that need tremendous breakthroughs in
  • 00:21:18.250 --> 00:21:22.110
  • their lives. When I read through these prayer requests,
  • 00:21:22.150 --> 00:21:24.210
  • and when our offices have them, and they, they read
  • 00:21:24.250 --> 00:21:27.090
  • through these, one of the things you can tell is that
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:29.210
  • people desperately need direction in their lives.
  • 00:21:29.250 --> 00:21:33.000
  • Before we pray for the prayer requests, I wonder if you
  • 00:21:33.040 --> 00:21:35.090
  • would just talk to that person who really needs to hear God's
  • 00:21:35.130 --> 00:21:38.210
  • voice; they need direction. Just give them some counsel, some advice.
  • 00:21:38.250 --> 00:21:41.170
  • ART- Yeah, absolutely. You know, the Book of James says
  • 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:45.130
  • that God's wisdom is pure and peace loving. And there's,
  • 00:21:45.170 --> 00:21:49.260
  • there's this whole description of what kind of things you're
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:52.030
  • looking for. And really, sometimes we're sitting there
  • 00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:56.160
  • waiting for some dramatic sign. When as we've said
  • 00:21:56.200 --> 00:22:00.160
  • already, it's really, really natural to hear God. You know,
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:03.260
  • if Scriptures true that you, if you're a follower of Jesus,
  • 00:22:04.000 --> 00:22:06.100
  • you have the mind of Christ, then sometimes the thoughts
  • 00:22:06.140 --> 00:22:09.270
  • that come into your mind are Him. Sometimes you ask
  • 00:22:10.010 --> 00:22:13.210
  • the Lord for insight and direction, and you get ideas.
  • 00:22:13.250 --> 00:22:17.100
  • And you feel like He's silent, but really He's speaking.
  • 00:22:17.140 --> 00:22:20.270
  • Other times, you know, it seems like you're not getting
  • 00:22:21.010 --> 00:22:23.090
  • an answer. But maybe it's just because He trusts you to make
  • 00:22:23.130 --> 00:22:26.020
  • the right decision. And of course, if God trusts you
  • 00:22:26.060 --> 00:22:28.280
  • and He's all-knowing and all-powerful, and all-wise,
  • 00:22:29.020 --> 00:22:33.040
  • surely that trust is not misplaced. So, you know, in
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:37.040
  • some cases you need to just kind of take the action. Get
  • 00:22:37.080 --> 00:22:40.200
  • going. I do always recommend, you know, we don't hear God
  • 00:22:40.240 --> 00:22:43.290
  • in a bubble. We live in a community of hearers. We are a
  • 00:22:44.030 --> 00:22:47.270
  • prophetic people. And so, get other believers around you
  • 00:22:48.010 --> 00:22:51.110
  • that are hearing God's voice, and run your thoughts past
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:53.180
  • them. This is what I'm feeling. This is what I'm
  • 00:22:53.220 --> 00:22:55.120
  • thinking, what I'm wrestling through. What do you think?
  • 00:22:55.160 --> 00:22:58.110
  • And, and pray for me. Help me process this with the Lord and
  • 00:22:58.150 --> 00:23:01.110
  • with you. And He'll give you insight and direction. Absolutely.
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:04.240
  • DANIEL- That's, that's really good. And would you just pray
  • 00:23:04.280 --> 00:23:07.130
  • for that person, before we get to the prayer requests,
  • 00:23:07.170 --> 00:23:08.270
  • pray for that person that's watching just that God will
  • 00:23:09.010 --> 00:23:11.210
  • give them an opening to their supernatural ears,
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:14.200
  • ART- Absolutely.
  • 00:23:14.240 --> 00:23:16.020
  • DANIEL- that even from this day they'll begin to hear, and
  • 00:23:16.060 --> 00:23:17.110
  • see, and sense His voice on a totally different level.
  • 00:23:17.150 --> 00:23:19.180
  • ART- Well yeah, I pray for every single person watching
  • 00:23:19.220 --> 00:23:21.080
  • this right now. I pray that the eyes of your heart would
  • 00:23:21.120 --> 00:23:24.130
  • be enlightened; that you'd know the hope to which you're
  • 00:23:24.170 --> 00:23:26.120
  • called and the glorious inheritance that He has in
  • 00:23:26.160 --> 00:23:29.060
  • you. And I pray right now that your spiritual senses would
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:33.130
  • be, would be opened up and sensitized; that, that you
  • 00:23:33.170 --> 00:23:37.220
  • would... You know, Jesus said, He who has ears to hear, let
  • 00:23:37.260 --> 00:23:40.260
  • him hear. I believe that you will have ears to hear.
  • 00:23:41.000 --> 00:23:44.040
  • I pray for an opening of those spiritual ears and a
  • 00:23:44.080 --> 00:23:47.110
  • sensitivity to the heart and the mind of God.
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:50.050
  • DANIEL- In Jesus' name. Come on, let's lay our hands
  • 00:23:50.090 --> 00:23:52.160
  • on these. Art would you just lead us as we begin.
  • 00:23:52.200 --> 00:23:54.170
  • ART- Yeah. Father, thank You for every one of these people
  • 00:23:54.210 --> 00:23:56.290
  • who know that You have a miracle for them. They
  • 00:23:57.030 --> 00:23:59.050
  • wouldn't write these things if they didn't believe that You
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:01.080
  • had something to offer. And so, we speak into every one of
  • 00:24:01.120 --> 00:24:03.250
  • these situations, be whole in Jesus' name. Father, I pray
  • 00:24:03.290 --> 00:24:08.000
  • that You would be the solution that they're looking for.
  • 00:24:08.040 --> 00:24:10.270
  • Every sickness, every disease, we tell you to go, in Jesus'
  • 00:24:11.010 --> 00:24:14.240
  • name. Every spirit of infirmity, leave, never come
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:16.210
  • back. And we tell those bodies to be completely whole. I pray
  • 00:24:16.250 --> 00:24:20.080
  • for the, the emotional torment that some are going through;
  • 00:24:20.120 --> 00:24:23.120
  • that you would find freedom. Those of you who have been
  • 00:24:23.160 --> 00:24:25.280
  • having dreams in the night that have been troubling you,
  • 00:24:26.020 --> 00:24:28.090
  • I speak peace to you, in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:24:28.130 --> 00:24:30.270
  • DANIEL- Yeah. And I just pray for that one that's watching
  • 00:24:31.010 --> 00:24:33.070
  • right now. If there's pain in your body, we command that
  • 00:24:33.110 --> 00:24:35.190
  • pain to get out right now, in Jesus' name. That pain is
  • 00:24:35.230 --> 00:24:38.180
  • coming out of your back. Your back is being healed. I feel
  • 00:24:38.220 --> 00:24:41.150
  • like there's somebody just in the lower lumbar area of your
  • 00:24:41.190 --> 00:24:45.170
  • back, you've had tremendous pain. Even when you have been
  • 00:24:45.210 --> 00:24:48.250
  • sitting for a while and you go to stand up, it just is very
  • 00:24:48.290 --> 00:24:51.010
  • painful and it takes you a minute to adjust. Lord, I
  • 00:24:51.050 --> 00:24:54.060
  • thank You that right now the back is being healed, from
  • 00:24:54.100 --> 00:24:57.020
  • years, and years, and years of damage. I thank You, Lord;
  • 00:24:57.060 --> 00:24:59.150
  • complete healing. I pray for those that have cancer. Be
  • 00:24:59.190 --> 00:25:02.150
  • healed from that cancer right now. Every sickness,
  • 00:25:02.190 --> 00:25:05.220
  • every disease, be healed, in the name of Jesus.
  • 00:25:05.260 --> 00:25:08.090
  • ART- Amen. Also, kind of the spine up here, in the top part
  • 00:25:08.130 --> 00:25:12.120
  • of the neck, right between the shoulder blades, be whole in
  • 00:25:12.160 --> 00:25:14.210
  • Jesus's name. Really if you have any kind of spine issues;
  • 00:25:14.250 --> 00:25:17.140
  • just move around right now. See if anything's changed.
  • 00:25:17.180 --> 00:25:20.110
  • DANIEL- Yeah. And Lord, I pray for those that have lost
  • 00:25:20.150 --> 00:25:22.150
  • loved ones, prodigal sons, prodigal daughters, Lord, we
  • 00:25:22.190 --> 00:25:27.000
  • agree with them right now. You know what a, what a burden
  • 00:25:27.040 --> 00:25:30.040
  • this is on the heart of your people; that they've been
  • 00:25:30.080 --> 00:25:32.110
  • crying out, they've been interceding, they've been
  • 00:25:32.150 --> 00:25:34.150
  • praying. Lord, right now, Art and I, we join our faith with
  • 00:25:34.190 --> 00:25:38.040
  • theirs, and we call those lost loved ones home; that son,
  • 00:25:38.080 --> 00:25:42.070
  • that daughter, that mother, that father, aunts, uncles,
  • 00:25:42.110 --> 00:25:45.030
  • whoever they are, Lord. We, we pray that by the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:25:45.070 --> 00:25:47.140
  • You would go, that you would convict their hearts because
  • 00:25:47.180 --> 00:25:50.080
  • Your Word says that You're the One that convicts of sin of
  • 00:25:50.120 --> 00:25:52.140
  • righteousness and of judgment. Lord, that You draw them back
  • 00:25:52.180 --> 00:25:55.170
  • to yourself. Lord, we pray that even this week the phone
  • 00:25:55.210 --> 00:25:58.160
  • would ring, and it would be that, that loved one calling
  • 00:25:58.200 --> 00:26:01.180
  • to give the good news that they have, that they've found
  • 00:26:01.220 --> 00:26:04.030
  • Jesus, that they're coming home. Father, I pray for those
  • 00:26:04.070 --> 00:26:07.000
  • that have serious financial problems right now, 'cause I,
  • 00:26:07.040 --> 00:26:10.150
  • I know that that enemy wants to crippled us with debt and
  • 00:26:10.190 --> 00:26:14.020
  • with stress. Lord, I pray that you would give breakthrough to
  • 00:26:14.060 --> 00:26:17.290
  • my brother, my sister's life. Lord, may they have the
  • 00:26:18.030 --> 00:26:20.180
  • revelation right now that You are their source, that You are
  • 00:26:20.220 --> 00:26:23.040
  • their provider. Lord, I pray that You would rebuke the
  • 00:26:23.080 --> 00:26:25.120
  • devourer, the one that's coming to steal, kill, and
  • 00:26:25.160 --> 00:26:27.200
  • destroy. And, and I thank You that You open the windows of
  • 00:26:27.240 --> 00:26:30.140
  • heaven and pour out blessings upon their life. Lord, bring
