THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION: Which Voice Do You Listen To?? Since time immemorial, God has been in the habit of sending voices (messenge...

Since time immemorial, God has been in the habit of sending voices (messengers) to speak to his people on earth. Whenever there was a problem, a baby would be born and sent forth as a special messenger to stand in the gap. Never did God come down himself to solve people’s problems. That would be undermining his divinity and throne of grace. His methodology, in his infinite wisdom, is that of sending fellow human beings to solve humanity’s problems!

You ought to understand that, to a greater extent, your level of success is directly related to the voice that you listen to! Take for instance, the case of Noah and the Ark (Genesis 5 to 9). God had instructed Noah to build the Ark because he wanted to destroy the earth. The earth had become a serious breeding ground for evil deeds. “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” – Genesis 6:5. The instruction was simple: Noah build the Ark and take with you other animal species in there. And as God would destroy the earth with floods, the only people and animal species to survive were those in the ark! If anyone was found in the ark, they would live (and vice versa)! That was the voice; that was the instruction!

The survival of the people and animal species in the ark had nothing to do with their intelligence, wisdom, physical built, swimming capabilities or good-looking features. They survived because they listened to the voice of God through Noah. Literally speaking, there could have been other beautiful animals that were meant to be in the ark but they refused Noah’s voice of instruction. As a result, they died and became extinct. But the baboon, though it is said to be ‘ugly’ in today’s world (sic); it survived another day because it listened to the voice of the man of God.

In Numbers 21, we see the Israelites being bitten by snakes and dying en masse as a punishment for having sinned and spoken evil against God. Their prayer was now for God to take away the serpents from them. In verse 8, Moses receives a clear instruction from God on how to manage the dire situation: “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live’”.  In verse 9, Moses does exactly as God instructed him to do. Everyone who looked at the bronze fiery serpent on the pole survived the bites; but those who did not follow the voice of instruction died!

Even in the latter biblical times; we see Jesus Christ, as he began his ministry on earth, meeting with Simon Peter at the Lake of Gennesaret. After teaching multitudes seated and using the boat of Simon Peter as his pulpit; at the end of the teaching Jesus then gave Simon Peter an instruction to “launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch” – Luke 5:4. Simon Peter did not see much sense in the words of Jesus; but his greatest weapon was obedience to the voice of instruction. “But Simon answered and said to Him, ‘Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at your word I will let down the net’. And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking” – Luke 5:5-6. Simple! Listen to the voice of instruction over your life and things could change for the better!

Even nowadays, God continues to send different voices for different assignments on earth. There are many genuine servants of God who have spoken God’s instructions in this world; these include Oral Roberts, Smith Wigglesworth, John Calvin, John Wesley, Ezekiel Guti, Myles Munroe, Benson Idahosa, Asa Gurupira, TD Jakes, Tudor Bismark, Mike Okonkwo, Mensa Otabil, Dag Heward-Mills, Kenneth Haggin, Kathryn Kuhlman and Bartholomew Manjoro. You have to be cognisant of the voice that God has sent in your life. Mine is Bishop Apostle P. Sibiya (; the founder, president and presiding bishop of Glory Ministries ( He has spoken many instructions over my life and things have come to pass! I honour and respect the voice that God sent over my life. You ought to do the same.

In conclusion; even though there are many dissenting voices in this world, you have to be careful not to follow heresy-driven voices. The simple yardstick to measure the same is the Holy Bible. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world” – 1 John 4:1. The Bible gives you the priviledge to test every spirit! If you do not agree with a certain voice, just move away from it and find a genuine and convincing voice in accordance with God’s word. The Holy Spirit will help you do that.

Be blessed; and please have a voice that you listen to!!
