Hearing God's Voice Course:

The Hearing God's Voice course is designed to enable anyone to begin to truly listen to God speaking today. Through teaching and practical exercises you will discover that you can hear God speaking to you. You will learn to recognize the many different ways that God speaks today, and how to discern God's voice from among the other voices you are hearing.

There are many voices being heard, including your own thoughts, the voices of angels and demons, the voices of dissociate parts, the voices of other people, and the voice of God. You can learn to separate each from the others. When you can reliably recognize God's voice then you are also able to discern the other voices and handle them appropriately.

There are many ways in which people hear God today, through reading the Bible and other spiritual reading, through prayer and intercession, through direct experience of God in dreams and visions, through spiritual gifts such as prophecy, word of knowledge, gift of tongues and interpretation of tongues, through listening to other people and through God putting thoughts directly into their mind. Each of these is useful, and each must be tested for authenticity. This course will teach you how to do this testing.

The Hearing God's Voice course uses a combination of lessons, practical individual and group exercises, and extra resource material from various teachers to extend your knowledge.The course is run regularly at Beth tephillah Ministry Centre, and at various other venues as needed. These are announced on this Listening2God website, at the Beth Tephillah Ministry Centre website, and through the Healing Prayer Ministries Network. They are also announced through the blogs associated with these websites. See the Resources Page for more information about associated blogs and websites.
