Hearing the Fathers voice
The desire of every person is to hear the Father’s voice. This is the cry of the lost as well as of every Christian. John 10:4 “His sheep follow Him for they know his voice”. This is one of the greatest frustrations in life. If God is alive, why won’t He speak to me? We feel that through the prophetic and through training, all Christians can have a paradigm shift in their life and relationship with the Lord, knowing that understanding the Father’s heart and love is key to hearing his voice. Many have searched for the voice of the Lord only to be disappointed when they feel they have failed to hear Him. The Father wants to be found and heard. He wants relationship with mankind. Our desire is that all should hear the voice of the Lord and walk in a new living relationship with Him, correctly discerning his voice and fulfilling the things He speaks to them. †

How to hear God’s Voice
All are called to hear God’s voice. When we focus on how God speaks to us it is easy to hear his voice. It is important to hear and focus on his voice instead of listening to the confusion that comes when we try to hear Him. Hearing the voice of God comes out of relationship with Him. As we get to know Him, He shares his heart with us and then his voice becomes familiar. In order to prophesy we must know his heart, because the Father's heart is the source of all prophecy. Ivan and Isabel in a simple and practical way teach people how to get there. †
What is the prophetic and what is the difference between Old Testament and New Testament prophets? How do you know if you are a prophet or just have a prophetic gift? What is a false prophet? How about words of correction? What is the difference between training prophetic people and “grooming” a prophet? What about your character? How do we grow in the prophetic and overcome hurdles? What do you do after receiving a prophetic word? How do you develop prophetic strategy? How do you enter into your prophetic destiny? How can your prophecies release the Kingdom of Heaven in your life today? What should pastors and leaders do when people receive prophetic words? What is the pastoral heart of the prophetic? How do we raise and pastor the prophetic around us? These are some of the questions that are commonly asked. Ivan & Isabel address these and other issues for the local church body. †
