A Jesus revolution replaces heart earplugs with inner earbuds.

A sincere prayer: Holy Spirit, please touch everyone who reads this with an instant and powerful manifestation of Your presence.

The inner earplugs of pride and self-focus keep us from hearing God’s Spirit. The worst hearing loss is the unwillingness to hear God’s voice.

A Jesus revolution starts with people hearing His voice and surrendering in awe to His presence. You can’t have a relationship with the risen Jesus if you won’t listen to Him. You can learn far more about Jesus by experiencing Him than you can ever learn by hearing a preacher talk about Him!

If you’ll take out your inner earplugs and listen to the Spirit, you’ll hear the voice of Jesus calling you come to Him for healing and peace. A Jesus revolution overthrows religion and replaces it with ongoing heart intimacy with the living Jesus.

If you aren’t hearing God’s voice, it’s not because He’s not speaking to you. It’s because you’re not listening. Dare to remove your earplugs today! A Jesus revolution exchanges the earplugs that close down our heart for God’s inner earbuds that tune us in to His voice.

The Bible is like earbuds. When I read it with an open heart, I hear the voice of God’s Spirit speaking in my inner ears. A Jesus revolution removes the earplugs from human hearts so that people begin to hear and obey His voice.

To listen to your conscience is to begin to open up to the inner voice of God’s Spirit. If you’re unwilling to see and turn away from your sins, you will strive to ignore and drown out the voice of God’s Spirit inside you. Dare to remove the inner earplugs that keep your heart cold by keeping you from hearing what the Spirit is saying.

The truth is that we too often fear to hear God’s Spirit because we don’t want Him to draw near to us. It takes much less courage to passively listen to a man lecture about God than it does to actually hear and obey what God’s Spirit is saying in your heart.

Now hear Jesus. If you want to be free and whole, the sound of God’s inner voice is the sweetest sound there is.

Unless we humbly open our heart and remove the earplugs from our inner ears, we’ll be unaware of the sound of God’s Spirit. If you don’t go to church to hear God speak in your heart and obey His voice, you might as well stay home. When the voice of a man crowds out the voice of the living Jesus, the Holy Spirit is quenched.

A true Jesus revolution breaks people’s dependency on a pastor and connects them directly to the risen Jesus. Preaching should empower and release people to hear God’s voice, not make them lifetime prisoners to the voice of a pastor. Instead of quoting preachers and sharing secondhand thoughts, tell what God’s Spirit is saying to you.

When preaching distracts people’s attention away from the actual presence of the risen Jesus, it has gone way off track. Now is the time to beyond human teachers. Train your inner ears to listen to what God’s Spirit is telling you moment by moment. Let your heart freely flow with and bask in the current of Christ’s rivers of living water.

Open your heart to hear what Christ in you is saying and do what His Spirit tells you to. Let Him daily teach you, lead you, and remind you.

All humans worship: What directs your heart is what you worship. A heart directed by the mind worships intellect; a heart controlled by emotions worships feelings; a heart driven by desires worships pleasure; but a heart led by the Spirit worships God. To worship anything other than God is to be caught up in the devil’s deception called idolatry.

To focus on intellect
And mostly neglect
The personal and direct
Leading of God's Spirit
Has the effect
Of producing
Lukewarm Christians.
Now hear Jesus!

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
