Forgot two crucial scriptures that had came to mind so it should have looked like the following when it comes to agenda.

Holy Spirit Agenda "Agree in one with the Father and execute His will"

1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
1Jn 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
&
Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Mat 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
&
Luk 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luk 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

How do you discern this to be the Holly spirit and not the devil, how do you here?

thanks
When that spirit says something contrary to scripture as kept in the KJV, that is not the Holy Spirit. Do keep in mind that the Holy Spirit is relaying words from Christ and so your focus is on listening to the Son of God at that throne of grace.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

If the spirit says "This is the Holy Spirit speaking..." then that is not the Holy Spirit.

Not disagreeing but I do want to add that

John 5;43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

and that the words of Christ and the Holy Spirit is of The Father who is one lord, one authority, one will, one God
-------------------------------------------------------


John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

Your post is sort of taking the topic in a different direction..which needs to be addressed.

For any testimony to be true, two or three witnesses must be in agreement. The same applies to God.

The Hebrew word for God "elohiym" in the Old Testament is plural and defines in Strong's Comcordance as "plural of ''elowahh' (433); gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:--angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. "

We see this mention in the request for the creation of man in "their image" and for judging the people at the tower of Babylon.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Genesis 11:6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

See the shift from plurality within that One God to when God acts as the One God?

Isaiah 55:6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

I acknowledge the verses of the One God, but there are scripture testifying to the plurality within that One God that I shall not deny the deity of the Son nor of the Holy Ghost as being with the Father as the Three witnesses of the One God

Just as false teachings are exposed and corrected by scripture as scripture cannot go against scripture, and so are false spirits are exposed when anything said by that spirit is going against scripture and thus proving it is not the Holy Ghost when no lie can be of the truth.

Well.. to keep on topic:

Just as false teachings are exposed and corrected by scripture as scripture cannot go against scripture, and so are false spirits are exposed when anything said by that spirit is going against scripture and thus proving it is not the Holy Ghost when no lie can be of the truth.

But if you wish to continue in private conversation which I had started with you, that is fine.

It can be easy to assume that the spirit speaking to you is the Holy Spirit when you want it to be that Holy voice. But whatever is spoken to you in Spirit must be compared to the precepts found in Holy scripture. The enemy wishes you to turn away from those precepts, not to them. So if you find the words to be true according to scripture, then its the Holy Spirit.

The spirit reminds you of truth, of scripture. In a given situation that you need to discern something the spirit will use the scriptures you need to help you.

As for hearing the voice of God I think that this would be a specific gift, something more a prophet is given.
