He Who Has Ears

In Revelations chapter 2 & 3, the word of God says three times in each chapter, "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches" (NKJV) or a more clear version, "Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches"(NLT).

This is not just a word for the churches at the time, but a word for the churches of today. God's Spirit is constantly moving and speaking to the churches of each generation.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8) but that is speaking of his character, not necessarily the way he handles or deals with each situation. God will never lie, think adultery is okay, or condone sin no matter the circumstance, but just as with each new decade we hear new music coming out of the secular world, there is new music coming from heaven. We could never possibly know all there is to know about God, and just as the angels are constantly amazed by the new revelations they receive from God, so are we!

The question now is are your ears open? Can you hear what the Spirit is saying to the church? If you were unaware of it I'll let you know; the church is you if you are a believer in Christ. God is speaking to His church by His Spirit, but not everyone is hearing what He is saying. When the Spirit speaks, he will never contradict his word, he will never go against it, so keep your ears open and be a person with the ears to hear.
