Tielman Slabbert Talking to Jesus


posted in: Food for Thought | 3


Is it true that I can talk “face to face” with both God and Jesus? Yes, it is true! And I would love to tell you about it, that you may experience it too! It is so simple that a small child can understand it! That is by the way one of the conditions…  You can read it in Matthews 11:25.

I believe Jesus’ words just as He said it Himself in Joh.14:23, “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” So, if I am living according to the words Jesus has spoken to me from the Bible, verses He has made clear and alive for me – then I know that I fulfil this condition. And then I can expect Him and the Father to make their home with me. Because I believe this, I know I can always talk to them! And I experience that they talk back!! I can ask them advice about everything! About my inner life, my thoughts, how to get rid of, for example, anxiety. I can honestly tell them how I feel about things, and then I get guidance from them! I don’t hear voices, but they let Bible verses pop up in my mind and become alive to me. And about practical things? Yes, I ask them too! And I experience how words or ideas come into my mind, and things become so simple and clear! Things come up that I had never thought about!!

John was not vague about this life, and says in I Joh.1:3-4, “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship (conversations) with us; and truly our fellowship (conversation) is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.” John didn’t write, “Sorry! These conversations with the Father and the Son are only for a few very special people!” No, it is for you and me, common people, and John wants you and me to share in this life and joy!

When I hear and see and experience things that are coming from God and Jesus, and get guidance from them for my life, then I am truly filled with joy and thankfulness!

    Truly when I trust God and His son Jesus in every aspect of my life, then He can talk to me. He will answer every bit of thing I ask Him. For forty years God led the Israelites by fire at night and a cloud by day. He talked to them through Moses everyday.
    That’s how He wants to talk to me. ”Come and let us reason together ” This is God calling me to talk to Him, to reason with Him on maters pertaining to my life.

    This is so wonderful to read such message of Jesus. It’s simple and clear to me that I can have a direct communication with Jesus and God.
    When I am in need of Jesus and His help I can make my requests known to Him Philp.4:6
    In areas that I am weak when I pray Jesus He always comes to my aid. Jesus is always there for me and you. Hebrews 2:16-18
