"12 Tips to Get & Keep the Lord Talking" (3.) Take some classes on the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts, and basic prophetic s to learn the patterns and methods of divine communication. The good classes will include some study of dreams and visions, symbolism, and God's parabolic communications. In particular, study prophecy and not just the modern kind, but also the prophecies of scripture to learn how God thinks, acts, and communicates. This will help you discern Him from other spiritual voices. All classes should be based on His word and not just traditional or contemporary church theology, or popular books on the subject. You want to be sure to have a good Bible foundation before enrolling in these classes because once you enter that realm, all kinds of supernatural forces will attempt to woo you to seize your spiritual communications channel. Be thoughtful and take your time to learn the voice of your God; it really is quite distinct when you pay attention.
