Has God ever spoken to you directly?
    #3455226 - 12/06/04 05:06 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

hey there, i was wondering if anyone here has ever had an experience where God has spoken to you directly...

Do you believe this happens?

What would you say to someone who claimed direct contact with God?

I've never had a conversation with God, but I've had incredibly deep experiences on psychedelics that I metaphorically DESCRIBED as being like "having a conversation with god, only neither of us had to say a word."

It was essentially a reconnection with the energy source that flows to and through all of us. Not to say I was ever completely disconnected from it, but the flood gates had shut an awful lot, and this experience opened them wide.

You can call it god if you want to. I don't like to use that name because so many people have alternate associations with it.

Spoken in the sense of occurences and emotions. Never actual speech.

well, somebody I know is claiming to have seen and spoken to God, seen angels by the thousands, and claims to have gotten messages and information directly from God and the Angels.

I'm wondering if this person is to be believed or not...

I certainly don't believe it, but this person has a lot of people believing what he says.

I don't think God has a personality, nor abillity to "speak".

However, many celestial beings that are within Christ (consciousness) speak to humans in the form of "god"

I dont think God himself communicates to ANY beings, celestial or human, but rather speaks to them through Christ, his first creation.

Joel 2
28 "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. 29 Even upon the menservants and maidservants in those days, I will pour out my spirit. 30 "And I will give portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes.





It's possible. If his message out of his experiences is self-less then it might be possible that he isn't making it all up. I know very little about prophet discernment..

I don't know about actually seeing God.. he probably would have died if he really "saw" God.

I dont believe God can ever be seen.

I dont believe its physical, so how can the eye perceive it?

I dont believe its mental, so how can the mind perceive it?

""celestial beings that are within Christ (consciousness) speak to humans in the form of "god"""

could you elaborate on that?

In other words, beings who are non-physical, and are ATTUNED to God's consciousness (Christ) often communicate to humans.

Because of their extreme amounts of light, love, and service, and lack of personality, many people believe its God talking to them.


Angels , for instance.

I have felt God. I have experienced God. Alas, God has never "spoken" to me. I have communicated with various entities in hyperspace, but none ever mentioned God. I figure it is because it goes without saying. I don't believe human eyes have the capacity to perceive God directly, but yet can perceive God in everything.

It says this in the Bible:

And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory. And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy. And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a Clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen. (Exodus 33:18-23)

This is talked about in length here:
http://www.bibleufo.com/anomaliesgod02.htm

I like what William Blake had to say about this in The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell. In the part "A Memorable Fancy", he wrote:

The Prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel dined with me, and I asked them how they dared so roundly to assert that God spake to them; and whether they did not think at the time, that they would be misunderstood, & so be the cause of imposition.
Isaiah answer'd. 'I saw no God, nor heard any, in a finite organical perception; but my senses discover'd the infinite in every thing, and as I was then perswaded, & remain confirm'd, that the voice of honest indignation is the voice of God, I cared not for consequences but wrote.'

The full text (which is extraordinary), for those interested, can be found here:
http://www.levity.com/alchemy/blake_ma.html

I see God everywhere. I talk to God daily. The first thing I do upon wakin gin the morning is to go outside, take a look around and thank God for allowing me another day.

I once felt like I was contacted by G'd, or more appropriately, I seemed like could feel His presence. I didn't have a conversation or anything like that I just felt like I had His presence. The moment only lasted for a second and think it is pretty much undescribeable, but it made me feel really happy and good and somewhat enlightened. It is also important to note that this happend when I was praying. I hadn't really prayed before this point (outside of synagogue) and I just decided to try it. Whether it was actually G'd or not, I'll never know. It may have just been a rapid mood swing and a random feeling, but I never had felt that way or had a similar experience before or since that day.

I thought to give a better understanding of my experience, I should give some of my personal beliefs (NOTE: These are only my personal beliefs and I do not wish to enforce them on anyone else. These are only my beliefs and not facts so there is no evidence to support any of the following, and I am in no way implying that they are correct.):

I do not believe that G'd is some higher-being or something that can be seen. I believe G'd is everywhere and in everything. I believe that G'd is what everything is made of and that the emotions we express and even the sub-atomic particles that make everything is G'd. I do believe that G'd however can be highly concentrated in certain places, such as in places of prayer.

As far as biblical and aincient texts, I think English translations are highly inaccurate. Therefore, I think the only way to accurately read or understand a text is to read it in its original language.

I believe that the key to finding importance or meaning from religious texts is studying them through your own interpretation. I feel they are guidelines that you are free to interpret as you wish.
