Voices
 
Joan of Arc, French saint and national heroine (1412–1431), heard 
voices speaking to her during her teenage years. She was tried as 
a heretic and burned at the stake in Rouen, France, on May 30, 1431. 
When religious authorities asked why she did what she was doing, 
Joan of Arc told them voices spoke to her. When church leaders asked 
why they did not hear the voices, Joan told them that they were not 
listening.

We need to listen to God’s voice. He speaks through creation, the 
Bible, through the lives of people, and by the Holy Spirit. We should
be deaf to the voice of the world and the devil, but alert to God’s voice. 
Let’s go to the Scriptures for the topic of voices.


1. Exodus 5:1–2.

When Moses and Aaron visited Pharaoh, what did they ask of him? 
How did Pharaoh respond? 
Why do people question God’s voice?


2. 1 Kings 19:1–18.

Why did Elijah go to Mount Horeb? 
What did God ask Elijah? 
What commission did he receive?
Does God still have fresh orders for His people?


3. Job 4:12–19.
In the midst of Job’s suffering, describe what he saw. 
What two questions are asked? 
How do you think you would respond to the suffering Job endured?


4. Psalm 42:4.

What kind of voice did David have as he went into God’s house? 
What kind of attitude (voice) should we have both 
in the church and in the routines of everyday life?


5. Isaiah 6:1–4.

What vision did Isaiah have when Israel’s king died? 
What did that display signify? 
What did the angelic beings say? 
How is God’s message conveyed to us today?


6. Isaiah 40:2–3.

Whose voice would later be heard in the desert? (Matthew 3:3). 
What was the message in Isaiah and later in Matthew? 
What is our message today?


7. Jeremiah 3:11–15.

What did the voice of God say to Israel? 
If they heard and repented, what blessing would they receive? 
What happens if we hear the Word of the Lord but don’t heed it?


8. Ezekiel 33:30–32.

What is said about Ezekiel’s preaching and the people’s response to it? 
Does it do any good to hear the words and not practice them? 
Is this a common response to God’s message today? 
Why or why not?


9. Revelation 3:20.

Who knocks at the door of every heart? 
Who must open the door? 
What happens when we let Him come in?


10. Revelation 11:15.

What did the voices in heaven say when 
the seventh angel blew his trumpet? 
What will happen to the kingdoms of this 
world when Jesus returns to reign forever?

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
