What Is A Mature Christian?
Because without Him we miss the mark! Because the ways of God are so different to that of human natural thoughts and logical thinking, etc. This is why the Prophetic Ministry is so important to be functioning in and through our lives, individually. The Prophetic Ministry is all based on hearing the voice of God with a love and commitment to do whatever He asks of us. That is how we come to be a mature believer in Jesus Christ: So much so that we want to obey Him every time He speaks to us. That is true love and commitment to Jesus Christ.

Remember a disciple of Jesus is one who follows both the Teacher and His teachings. Far too often we limit God by thinking He only speaks in the Bible, or only through Christian Leaders, etc. If you know your Bible you will know that there are more than 40 ways by which God spoke in the Scriptures alone.

Flowing in Prophetic Ministry has also helped me tremendously to know the voice of God, for we do not step out in the exercising of a Spiritual Gift 1 Corinthians 12 without first recognizing that God is desiring us to say or do something. At different times I have had Christians who have been established in churches some Pentecostal for 40 years tell me that they have never heard the voice of God personally. This is tragic, as it means they have not grasped what New Testament Christianity is all about. They are missing out on what the Holy Spirit was sent to us for, so that we could be first-hand witnesses of the Living Jesus Christ, Who speaks today!
Attending church services is no guarantee of our gaining Christian maturity. True Christian maturity is a total commitment to whatever Jesus says, accompanied by a willingness and obedience to doing His will. I n Acts 9 we have the record of a little-known disciple by the name of Ananias.

For when God asked him to go and do something that naturally he did not want to do, the Lord so knew that Ananias would obey that He could safely give Saul of Tarsus his name and tell him that Ananias was coming to pray for him to receive his sight and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
This is a wonderful illustration of someone who had come to trust the voice of the Lord more than his own thinking, natural knowledge, etc. If Ananias was one who only obeyed the voice of God sometimes, then God could not have given Saul his name beforehand. But he had proven to God that he would obey whatever God asked of him.

He was a mature believer. Can God so trust your obedience to do whatever He asks of you, that He can safely give other people your name and tell them you are coming with a message from God? I n Acts 8 we read of Philip going to Samaria and preaching Christ to the people.
