The Lord just revealed to me, the spirit of “SELECTIVE HEARING.”
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good, the best, the fat, the wealth of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured, consumed, eaten up, with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” (Isaiah 1:19-20)
This is a powerful prophetic Word from the Lord. However, people with the spirit of selective hearing, only hear it this way, “I will eat the good the best, the fat, and the wealth of the land. I am not rebellious I just choose to do what I want, you know, I follow my heart or my feelings”. We the believers, the righteous of God, can’t live by subjectivity. This is the spirit of “SELECTIVE HEARING.”
Be careful Beloved, because this spirit treats the Bible like it’s a menu, at a restaurant, it doesn’t revere God’s prophets, as God’s spokespersons, but caters to the desires of the flesh, not the Spirit of the Lord. This spirit says what the flesh wants. Then perpetrates that God is saying it, when it’s actually the person speaking to themselves and being led by their emotions and not by pure devotion, in obedience to God.
In the natural, SELECTIVE HEARING means lacking the ability to distinct, identify or filter one voice or sound from the other. It is also characterized as the action, where people focus their attention, on a specific source of a sound or spoken words. They only hear what they want to hear. They only hear it the way they interpret it, in lieu of allowing the Holy Spirit to give the revelation.
Similarly, the spiritual realm, it is when a person lacks a pure heart to distinct, identify, or filter the voice of the enemy, the voice of human reasoning, from the Voice of the Lord. In other words, a person with SELECTIVE HEARING has a heart deficiency, their heart deceives them (Jeremiah 17:9-10).
A prayer I love to pray is, “Holy Spirit show me the errors of my ways, and expose any deception or untruth in my heart, because I want to please you, not my flesh.
This is true worship, and pure hearing the Father…Selah
