The Spirit comes to anyone asking for him and speaks to anyone who wants to hear the truth. Many have been taught they have the Christ in their hearts and many believe they have the Christ in their hearts, however, their words and actions tend to show that rather then having the Christ in their hearts, they are by their works disowning even the Owner that bought them and spreading their corruption into the earth. I hear because I 'asked' to hear. I wanted the truth and I asked for him to come and speak to me the truth. The door was opened, I walked through. The door has been opened to many and some walk through, some do not. There are people who truly have the Christ in their hearts, and there are many others who think they do, but truly do not. I am unable to say who does and who does not unless the Holy Spirit specifically tells me who does and who does not and I am given the direction to say such. In the meantime, the Christ knows those who belong to him and his sheep will hear his voice. It is not up to me at all. All I am is one who has been sent by that One to do the things I am directed to do and say.
Many people suffer because of what they have brought upon themselves, many people suffer because of what OTHERS have brought upon them. The Christ knows all of them and he knows the ones who are asking. Everyone who suffers and is asking for the help of the Christ receives it. Everyone who after receiving the help and obeys him, makes whatever change(s) necessary to receive the salvation from such persecution does get saved from it. The Christ himself delivers them. What ones must do is 'want' to be delivered, and be willing to be delivered. The Christ does not force deliverance upon anyone, it is a free gift to anyone who wants it. God IS able to help everyone all the time. The truth is, not everyone wants his help, and there are many who say they want his help, but when such help is offered, they reject him. There are also many others who ask for his help and when such help is offered, they take it and are delivered.
Peace to you all,
