    The Bible gives examples of the Spirit speaking to individuals. One is the apostle Peter who heard the Spirit speak to him about going with the messengers from Cornelius and the Spirit telling Philip to walk alongside the chariot.

    Paul says to earnestly desire spiritual gifts, especially that ye may prophesy. 'Prophecy' throughout scripture had to do with hearing messages from God and communicating them to others. As far as 'conversational prayer' goes, we might put some of the prophets conversations with God recorded in scripture in that category. If a Christian genuinely experiences that, that is great.

    Greg, I have a question about something that I've heard many times.
    Do we have spiritual eyes or ears?

    I believe that the word of God is the lamp to our feet and that the Holy Spirit is the one who sanctifies us but I have never seen anything about spiritual eyes or ears in the Bible.
    The only thing I've seen is 2 Cor 4 4 and Eph 1 18 but it is talking about the mind and how we get the gospel.

    So how do I respond to that question without being rude or offensive?

    By the way, thank you. This video was an affirmation that I was believing in the true Holy Spirit.

    Religious bullshit is also a drag on the economy. Notice how he is contributing nothing to the economy except for babbling nonsense?

    I believe what you are saying my brother I am NOT trying to split hairs in any way listen to this small testimony or let's say brief testimony 3 days ago my 2 year old nephew went to the hospital thinking the baby had pneumonia it wasn't pneumonia his heart was bad had a hole pumping fluid blood in his lungs it was just a few hours they called code blue the baby died everyone in our family scattered Kaos in this hospital this was a nightmare find myself running down a hall screaming and crying put my head against the wall and the Spirit of God spoke to me the Holy Spirit spoke to me my brother he said go lay hands on the baby and rebuke the Death Angel now would my conscience tell me to do that what the enemy tell me to do that No spoke to me he was the baby came back they put him on life support 3 days they just took him off the life support today he is on the mend miracle took place I believe in what you were telling me about the Holy Spirit but don't close your mind that he won't speak to you because he spoke to me God bless

    It seems the "still small voice" term is confusing. In I Kings 19, the "still small voice" is a literal voice; a voice that can be heard, not an inner feeling or tug. And the Acts 16 passage also gives no idea of how the Spirit didn't permit them, so we can't deduce anything from that. I think what Greg would say is that even though the Spirit might speak through "inner tugs" on rare occasions, that is not taught in scripture and should not be made into doctrine. Cheers!
