Unleash the Warrior Within. Hear From God’s Voice

Unleash the Warrior Within. Hear from God’s voice

Holy Spirit Intelligence (HSI), is our individual ability to hear God’s voice and then act on His command. Like a General in the Army, we are soldiers and warriors for the Kingdom of God. Most of us don’t hear an audible voice like a friend, wife, or husband standing in a room next to us telling us what to do. We get a crazy dream that we can’t interpret. Or maybe we hear or see something on TV or the Internet and think, “Is this a coincidence?” and think “Man, that’s really weird.” 


HSI is for everyday Christians. Christians like you and me who want to use our talents and gifts to glorify the Lord. So how do we hear His voice?  Understanding the process of His Holy command and acting as if it’s an order from the Chairman of the highest, most righteous Supreme court in all the universe. Jesus Christ himself is the first step in the process. He is talking to us, but are we actively listening? 


 Active listening for His voice takes time and discernment. Praying and asking God on a daily basis to hear His voice and act on His command takes discipline and rigor. Am I willingly able to give my life and agenda to Him every morning or everyday?  If you have never acted on His voice, it takes faith, confidence, and repetition. Are you willingly able to change your calendar and respond to His voice? How about blessing an organization financially or giving some of your personal resources to them? 


HSI is for normal everyday Christians who are able to discern His voice and act on His command. This is like the FBI and CIA, or top secret officials taking direct orders from the President of the United States, except our President is the Supreme Ruler of the universe with unlimited power over mind, body and spirit. One day, all knees will bow to the Supreme Ruler of the universe, and He doesn’t have a four-year term. He is the ruler, now and forever, the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. Start hearing His voice and apply rigor to your actions today and become a warrior for the Kingdom of God. Everyday He is always attempting to talk to us. It’s our ability to tap into His daily messages. An HSI warrior can hear His voice daily and act on His command. Understanding and embracing this power is where HSI begins. 


Remember, Jesus Christ places us in the marketplace with God to show His glory through our talents and abilities. Our heavenly father paid the ultimate price for our freedom and liberty. He boldly and courageously died on the Cross for our sins for every generation that will ever live on the planet, including you, your children, and grandchildren. Glorifying Him in your everyday walk by hearing His voice. Start your day by asking to hear His voice and reorganize your time. Transform your mind, body, and spirit to become an HSI Warrior.  



So how do we hear His voice?

 Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is the warm-up before embracing HSI. Because we are here to glorify God with our talents and abilities, He is attempting to talk to us everyday. Understanding the process of Holy Spirit Intelligence is critical to hearing His voice. Embracing His voice is like embracing an order from the highest, most righteous supreme authority in all of the universe.  He is talking to us, but are we actively listening? 


 Everyday He is always attempting to talk to us. It’s our ability to tap into His daily messages. An HSI warrior can hear His voice daily and act on His command. Understanding and embracing this power is where HSI begins.


Here is the HSI process:

  1. A passing thought happens. Then, that thought gets parked. 
  2. Someone or something in your waking, walking life reveals that same thought. It’s either verbal or visual.
  3. Keep the thought parked. Pray.
  4. That same thought gets revealed to you by someone or something in a different venue in your waking, walking life. It’s either visual or verbal.
  5. Discern that thought through a Christian mentor(s) and scripture to make sure the action items will glorify the Kingdom of God.
  6. That same thought gets revealed to you by someone or something in a different venue in your waking, walking life. It’s either visual or verbal.
  7. Gas pedal. Now it’s time to take action. Taking action on that thought will take a leap of faith. It will be uncomfortable. Taking action is the first step in an HSI warrior’s life. 




  • How long does it take from step 1 to step 7?

The timetable from step 1 to step 7 may take weeks, months, or sometimes years.

  • How do I start?

Embrace the philosophy that God is trying to communicate with you daily. Then follow steps 1 through 7.

  • Is starting hard?

It’s kind of like a muscle. If you have never used the muscle before, it will become atrophied. So, beginning is tough, but once you hear His voice and act on it, you will get more confident and trust His message to you as a direct message from Him.

  • Does God really talk to people?

Here are few examples out of hundreds of examples in the Bible on how God spoke to His people


  • Gen 3:8 “And they (Adam and Eve) heard the sound of the Lord…”
  • Ex 4:21 “The Lord said to Moses…”
  • Gen 12:1 “Now the Lord said to Abram…”
  • Joshua 1:1 “The Lord spoke to Joshua…”
  • Is 8:1 “Then the Lord said to me (Isaiah)…”
  • Jer 7:1 “The word came to Jeremiah from the Lord…”
  • Jn: 5:30 “I can do nothing on My own initiative, as I hear, I judge…”
  • Acts 11:12 “And the Spirit told me (Peter) to…”
  • Rev 1:10-11 “I (John) was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I hear behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying ‘Write a book what you see…”
  • Heb 12:22, 24-25  “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God…and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant…See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking”
  • Habakkuk 2:1-2 “I will stand on my guard post…And will keep watch and see what He will speak to me…Then the Lord said…Record the vision….”

  • Is there scripture supporting this theory?


John 10:27

“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”


John 10:16

“I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.”


Acts 2: 1-4

“God has always spoken through dreams and visions, and He specifically said that they would come to those upon whom the Holy Spirit is poured out.”


In order to see, we must look. Daniel saw a vision in his mind and said, “I was looking…I kept looking…I kept looking” (Dan. 7:2, 9, 13). As I pray, I look for Jesus, and I watch as He speaks to me, doing and saying the things that are on His heart. Many Christians will find that if they only look, they will see. Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us (Matt. 1:23). It is as simple as that. You can see Christ’s presence with you because Christ is present with you. In fact, the vision may come so easily that you will be tempted to reject it, thinking that it is just you. But if you persist in recording these visions, your doubt will soon be overcome by faith as you recognize that the Almighty God could only birth the contents of these visions.

  • Why do I need a Christian Mentor(s)?


1 Peter 5:8

“The Christian who puts Godly safeguards around him or her need never fear deception, but must be aware of the enemy who prowls like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”


Proverbs 15:22

“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”


  • How do I test before I act?


1 John 4:1

Thoughts from our own minds are progressive, with one thought leading to the next, however tangentially. Thoughts from the spirit world are spontaneous. The Hebrew word for true prophecy is naba, which literally means to bubble up, whereas false prophecy is ziyd, which means to boil up. True words from the Lord will bubble up from our innermost being; we don’t need to cook them up ourselves.

  • Test the Fruit


Matthew 7:15-20

What effect do the things you hear have on your soul and your spirit? Words from the Lord will quicken your faith and increase your love, peace and joy. They will stimulate a sense of humility within you as you become more aware of Who God is and who you are. On the other hand, any words you receive that cause you to fear or doubt, bring you into confusion or anxiety, or stroke your ego (especially if you hear something that is “just for you alone – no one else is worthy”), then you must immediately rebuke and reject these as lies of the enemy.

  • Share it with Christian Mentors


Proverbs 11:14

We are members of a Body! A cord of three strands is not easily broken, and God’s intention has always been for us to grow together. Nothing will increase your faith in your ability to hear from God like having it confirmed by two or three other people! Share it with your spouse, your parents, your friends, your elders, your group leader, or even your grown children. You can use them as your sounding board. They don’t need to be perfect or super-spiritual; they just need to love you, be committed to being available to you, have a solid biblical orientation, and most importantly, they must also willingly and easily receive counsel. Avoid the authoritarian who insists that because of their standing in the church or with God, they no longer need to listen to others. Find two or three people and let them confirm that you are hearing from God!

  • Should I pray

Yes. Find a quiet place and still your mind, body, spirit, thoughts, and emotions. You can’t out-pray God. 


Psalm 46:10

Mark 1:35

1 Chronicles 17:16

Hebrews 12:2

Galatians 3:27
