Isa 55:1-8 ; Rom. 12:1-2 : Cease from thinking of the self and the willing of the self, keep your intellect and will quiet, then you are ready to receive the impressions of the Eternal Word and Spirit. See your soul above all outward senses and let your imagination be locked up by Holy thoughts, opening the way for the Eternal Hearing, Seeing and Speaking to be revealed in you. Now you are the organ of His Spirit, and so God speaks in you, whispers to your spirit, and your spirit will hear His voice.
2 Cor. 5:17 ; Rom. 4:13 , 15 , 17 , 18 , 20 ; Rom. 5:1-2 :If you can stand still from self-thinking and self-willing, then you may arrive at length to see the great salvation of God, being made capable of all manner of Divine sensations and Heavenly Communication.
Gen. 2:7 ; Gen. 1:26-27 ; Rom. 6:17-18 ; 2 Cor. 4:16 : Man was descended and derived from the earth, given Eternal life by the breath of God. This life was given before man could think and will for himself. God initiated and activated man's thinking and willing. Man's life is in God, and this life came into the body. Thus if you remain quiet and silent as when God made man's nature, then you will hear God speak.
Col. 3:1-3 ; James 4:6-10 ; Matt. 10:37-38 :To hear God, three things are required:
John 1:1-4 , 10 , 16 ; 1 John 2:16 ; 1 John 5:1-5 :The world is but an image, a shadow of the Substance and the Reality which is Christ for all things came into being by Him. Of His fulness we have received which is a state of living above images, figures and shadows of this created world. We rule over creatures in Jesus from whom all things came into being. Therefore, we are to rule by Christ and in Him rule and control all things.
Matt. 18:3-4 ; John 15:4-5 ; Lu. 9:23-24 ; Phil. 2:12-13 ; l John 5:19-21 : We are to lean upon the Lord for all things. As we depend upon the Author and Fountain of all things and become like him in all dependence and by union of my will with his will, and as I give my desires and will to the Lord, and I receive no new thing unto my self, then I will be free of all things and will rule over them as a Prince of God.
Matt. 28:18-20 ; John 15:5 ; 1 Cor. 1:30 ; Phil. 4:13 ; Prov. 14:12 ; Prov. 21:1 :Christ is the strength of my salvation and the power of my life. I can do all things by the faith which He works in me. But I must give up my entire
life and resign my will wholly to him and desire nothing without
Him. I am not to be delighted by my own reasonings, and abilities,
but put them all under the Cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thus
my will will be walking in Heaven, I will behold all things outwardly
with my reason, and inwardly with my mind. Therefore, I will rule
in all things and over all things with Christ unto Whom all power
is given both in heaven and on earth.
