How do I know it’s God speaking?

How do I know its God through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit speaking to me?

Heaven-in-the-moviesIts only two ways, but yet three

 1. By checking the word of God which is the bible

2 Timothy 3: 16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

 2. By the confirmation of the Holy Spirit who lives within you.

Romans 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.

These are the two ways we who are disciples of Jesus Christ get to know it is the Lord who is speaking to us. The third is optional and can be used if you are not sure and you want a person to confirm.

3. By a friend in the faith, the pastor or other believers.

Proverbs 27:17-As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
