Is anyone listening?

It is said that we have been on this earth for millions of years. I know it feels like it to me sometimes when I experience aches and pains … but that’s another story.

So let’s stop interrupting and get back on course.

For all these years, as long as man could reason and comprehend … (some women believe this has never happened).

I really must stop interrupting myself.

As I was saying … for all these years, as long as humanity could reason and comprehend, God has spoken to us and shown us the Way back to Him.

No generation has been left without a sure sign of His existence and the Way back to Him.

At first, God spoke through people like Abraham, Moses, Elijah and other prophets. He spoke through the many poets and songsters who wrote the psalms. And through ordinary people so that their contemporaries could understand.

Had God appeared on earth as a majestic Divine Ruler, Creator and King of the whole universe, omnipotent, all knowing and all powerful; He would most probably have caused havoc, fear, awe, and eventually total submission.

Hardly the acts of a loving Father.

So God at first chose the gentler way of speaking and teaching the people. He spoke through enlightened open minded leaders like Moses. People who could translate His message to generations in a language they could understand.

He taught them of His love for them, and for His plans to come to them in person, as often prophesised in the Old Testament.

But many did not listen.

Later on, when they were ready, God sent His Son on earth as a human in the shape of Jesus.

He showed them many signs of His divinity through healing miracles and raising of the dead. He died for them and us, and was raised from the dead.

But many still did not listen or believe.

After Jesus was raised to Heaven He sent the Holy Spirit to guide us, help us, and be with us every step of the eventual Way to the Father.

The Holy Spirit is with us today. Right now. A reality not just a figure of speech.

Many have received Him with open hearts.

But as for countless others …

They’re still not listening ... perhaps they'll never will.


  1. I give a hearty Amen to that, Victor. This is the truth that needs to be spread to the ends of the season and out.
    Blessings +

    1. Thank you Caroline. It is a shame that as the world progresses people believe less and less.

      God bless you.

  2. Hi Victor! I was struck by your phrasing about those with 'open minds' and I thought that was such a good way to put it. The Spirit is there, but how many times do I ignore or run down the path I like instead. (always a stupid path)

    God loved Moses, so I think he can love me. And I can rely on what he tells me. Come on, Ceil. You can do it!!

    Loved your comments today on my blog. Well, I always do.
    PS Please digress at will. Always brings me a smile :)

    1. Hello Ceil,

      I am sure that God loves you just as He loves all of us. You're not alone in sometimes running down the path you prefer instead. We're all liklely to do that. I know I often do. The thing is, God knows we're human and likely to fail often. So he forgives again and again.

      Thank you Ceil for your visit.

      May God bless you always.

  3. Yes indeed Colleen. We must pray always that more do listen. And hopefully, some may come to the Lord through what we write in our Blogs.

    God bless you.

  4. Even though I have received Him, and receive Him (through Communion), I still don't always listen to Him. Not intentionally, but through my busyness, distractions, etc. Your post is not just the those "countless others", but for all of us. Thank you, Victor.

    1. Hand-Maid, we all get distracted and lose focus away from God from time to time. especially when life gets difficult at times. He understands and forgives time and again.

      May He bless you and your family always.

    1. I'm sorry Melanie. That was not my intention. You know full well that God loves you and is with you always.

      May He continue to bless you and yours.

  6. Beautiful post!

    God still speak to us through His Spirit. If only we would stop and listen...

  7. (((It is said that we have been on this earth for millions of years.)))

    Victor, so why do some say that the Bible said that this world is only 6,000 years?

    I hear YA! Hey Victor, many say that animal life year is something like 7 to 1 compared to human life and let's remember that 6,000 years is but a moment for GOD (Good Old Dad) so what ration should we GOD Children use to compare GOD age to our earth?

    Just asking! :)



God bless you.
