RHEMA 2/21/10 OPENING SPIRITUAL
I have found this string of
discussion from our QW Class amazing timing. Just about
a week ago, someone I had been praying for was woken up
twice hearing his Mom calling him. When he got out of
bed, she was sound asleep. I believe the Lord is saying
He is waking our ears to hear His voice like never
When Samuel was hearing the Lord,
he thought it was Eli. The Lord was either using Eliís
voice or what Samuel perceived as Eliís voice to wake
him up enough to listen.
I believe these experiences all
happening at once are strong confirmations that He is
opening spiritual ears to hear His voice.
boy Samuel ministered to the LORD before Eli . And the
word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no
widespread revelation. 2 And it came to pass at that
time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when
his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see,
3 and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle
of the LORD where the ark of God was, and while Samuel
was lying down, 4 that the LORD called Samuel. And he
answered, "Here I am!" 5 So he ran to Eli and said,
"Here I am, for you called me." And he said, "I did not
call; lie down again." And he went and lay down. 6 Then
the LORD called yet again, "Samuel! So Samuel arose and
went to Eli , and said, "Here I am, for you called me."
He answered, "I did not call, my son; lie down again."
7(Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, nor was the word
of the LORD yet revealed to him.) 8 And the LORD called
Samuel again the third time. So he arose and went to Eli
, and said, "Here I am, for you did call me." Then Eli
perceived that the LORD had called the boy. 9 Therefore
Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down; and it shall be, if
He calls you, that you must say,'Speak, LORD, for Your
servant hears.'" So Samuel went and lay down in his
place. 10 Now the LORD came and stood and called as at
other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel answered,
"Speak, for Your servant hears."
This morning I was doing the
laundry, I suddenly heard my husband call my name. He
has just left the house to go play tennis a few minutes
before, so I thought he forgot something and came back.
When I checked he wasn't there. I took it as a sign that
I should pray for him. Has this happened to any of you
I was wondering if I maybe heard it
in my spirit, because it was very clear. I have had
instances where I thought one of my kids called me, I
heard 'Mom' but that wasn't as clear. One night I woke
up because I heard a knock, then I realized it must have
been in my spirit because the house was totally quiet
and no one was knocking.
I heard my son call out to me while
I was cleaning and I knew to pray because it was the
sound of his voice when he was really young 4 or 5 yrs
old. He was 19 at the time with a deeper voice.
Yes, just last night I heard my
sister call my name. She's in Florida. I woke up enough
to pray for her.
I had something unusual also. I was
making the bed when my husband came back in the house
after leaving for work. I heard him slam the back door,
it was loud. I waited for a few seconds looking for him
to show up at the bedroom door. When he did not I went
into the kitchen looking for him - he wasn't there. Both
the front door and back were locked. The door I heard
slam can only be opened from the inside if locked and I
could see the front door from the bed room I was in. (he
didn't pass me) When I called his cell he informed me he
had already reached his work and was walking into his
