Why Do So Many Christians Fear Intimacy with God? ( Video Teaching)

I recently discovered a youtube channel called Still Small Voice that I absolutely love. Claire and her husband Ekeziel who host the channel are like modern day Jesus Callings saints. Each day she uploads an inspired word from the Lord.  In addition, she also has a variety of teachings that are biblically sound and excellent and the one titled, “Do Not Fear or Reject Intimacy with God, He Desires Your Company,” is such.  I have included a few of my favorites below.  You may want to subscribe to the Still Small Voice Channel. There are almost 200 videos already on a wide variety of subjects. I have included the videos below and their descriptions. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. 

1. Do Not Fear or Reject Intimacy with God, He Desires Your Company

Video Description: The Lord of Glory aches for companionship with His Bride, but we are so often bound by fear. In this teaching I share how the Lord has led us into profound intimacy with Him. I address all the arguments against this natural need we have to fill the God shaped place in our souls, I list the Scriptural promises He has given us about intimacy with Him.

He longs to speak with us, one on one, more than we can ever long for Him. He seeks the companionship of His creatures just as it was in the Garden of Eden. God has not changed, He is forever the same and having redeemed us by the Blood of the Lamb, we in a very real sense are being returned to the innocence and purity of the Garden before the Fall.

All that is necessary is commitment and the willingness to protect our very special time with Him by giving Him our best hours, our best energy, and complete attention, just as any bride to be would seek out quality time with her fiance before the wedding.

There is so much to talk about, so many dreams to dream, so much to look forward to and even now, still many choppy waters to navigate.

He waits for us with arms full of graces unknown to most. He saves the choicest blessings for the ones that will respond. He longs to be comforted for the ones He has called, and called, and called, but do not respond.

In this video is a prophetic word from Him about the graces He is waiting to shower on the Christian that wants to enter the Holy of Holies and Dwell there with God.

Don’t quench the Spirit of God and withdraw from Him, rather pursue Him with your whole heart until you have captured Him…He longs for this.

2. Hear & See Jesus, How To

Video Description: This video is a ‘how to’ on cultivating a relationship with Jesus, so that you can see and hear Him, for real. It’s based on two simple techniques that have never failed me in thirty-five years of walking with Him.

In Heaven we will see Him, hear Him and talk with Him, that’s His promise. He told us to pray ‘on earth as it is in Heaven’ and He would never ask us to do something that is impossible to us with His grace.

“Blessed are the Pure of Heart for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8

Yes, there is purification involved, but the whole process from start to finish will yield immediate results because He rewards those who diligently seek Him. Doesn’t matter if you’ve been seeking Him for thirty years or thirty minutes. He will reward you, if only you will believe in His promises in the Bible.

Once you’ve found Him in this way, you will never let Him go. It is sheer Heaven on Earth. It isn’t hard, in fact it’s child’s play. He said, ”Unless you become as little children (I think…innocent and believing) you will never enter the kingdom of God.”

Conversing with God is promised to us in the Scriptures in many, many different places:

Proverbs 8:17– “I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.”

John 14:23– Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

This IS attainable and Scriptural, there is no reason to believe otherwise because the Lord taught us to pray for it. His Bride is not some remote person who only sees Him from afar. No she is the bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, and as such they have a deep loving relationship. In fact, she needs to be in love with Him, just as He is in love with her. We can love Jesus and not be in love…one preacher was told, that if she wasn’t in love with Him, she had stains on her wedding dress. I bore witness to that in my heart, this happens when we are so busy serving God but not spending intimate time with Him. Then He requests that we return to our first Love.

3. How the Lord delivered me from a religious spirit and bigotry.

Author’s Testimony (I loved it)

Video Description: How the Lord delivered me from a religious spirit and bigotry. What is a bigot?
1. a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions. 2. a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people’s ideas, 3. a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion 4. religious hypocrite, (and here I would say, a person who accuses other religions of the sins their own religion is guilty of.)

Tonight I received an invitation from the Lord to share the path Jesus has led Ezekiel and I to travel and how we came to this place in our teachings. It’s been roughly 30+ years of instruction from Holy Spirit to bring us to this place of Heart Dwelling and we have been led to experience many different cultures and their ways of Christian worship.

Our whole heart is that we live in reality the way life is lived in Heaven. In Heaven there is no squabbling or criticism of others and their ways we often do not understand. No bigotry or intolerance of other cultures, all worship as one in Spirit and in Truth.

 

4. What Is Dwelling Prayer, It Is The Prayer We Use To Get Close to Jesus

Video Description: Everyday I get inquiries from people who want to hear from the Lord the way we do. So I’ve done a short video on Dwelling prayer, which is what we call our way of praying.

As Christians, Jesus lives in our hearts, He is the gate to the sheepfold, no one comes to the Father unless they come through Jesus, so in the spirit we worship in/from the heart and encounter Jesus during worship, at one point He very often wants us to ‘rest’ in Him, or ‘dwell’ with Him, just to be there in the Shekinah glory in a suspended state of worship. Very often that’s when healings take place, and He speaks to us giving us courage and other gifts for our walk with and for Him.

We have also put together a playlist of many videos (I’m Calling You to Intimacy) to help you get started. Check out Experiencing God in Dwelling Prayer as well.
