|1 Corinthians 2:13|
13 Which things we speak, not in the words, which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit instructs;4 combining spiritual truths with spiritual words. [Regarding speaking words from the Holy Spirit: Jesus said: "whatever I speak is just as the Father has told me to speak. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him." John 12:50,7:18.]
|1 Corinthians 14:29-31|
29 Let two to three prophets [those inspired by the Spirit to teach or preach — at that moment] speak, and let the others judge what they hear.
30 If anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first stop talking [so that the second may declare his or her revelation]. [If the first speaker were only speaking words as heard from the Holy Spirit, he would cease hearing further words so that another could speak words supplied by the Spirit. This guideline is for those who get "carried away" and keep talking after they have ceased hearing from the Spirit what to say next. The Word of the Lord within specifically told me, "When you stop hearing what to say, Joan will have words to speak," (Joan is my wife).]
31 In this way you may all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn, and all may be encouraged.2
16 Let the word Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another [with words from Christ in your hearts] in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Let the word Christ richly dwell in you. If you give heed to my words, I will dwell in you and walk in you."]
|1 Peter 4:10-11 |
10 As every man has received a gift, use it to serve [minister] one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11 If any man speaks, [let it be] as God's oracles [words]; if any man ministers,[ let him do it] with the strength that God gives,3 so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ, to whom is the glory and power forever and ever. Amen. [Oracle — a message from the gods given by an oracle. From the Word of the Lord within: "A word spoken from the Spirit requires you to hear what the Spirit says to you. All and only words from Him are to be spoken." Jesus said: "whatever I speak is just as the Father has told me to speak. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him, that man is true, and there is no unrighteousness in him." John 12:50,7:18.]
