Brother Bakht Singh of India (3) : Hearing the voice of the Lord

In the biography Bakht Singh of India, the author T. E. Koshy pointed out some salient features of Brother Bakht Singh. One of them is that he learned to hear the voice of the Lord.

When Bakht Singh was a new convert, he read the book of Genesis and found that it said of "God said, God spoke" many times. Phrase of this kind appears in the five books of Moses 558 times. So he prayed to God and asked Him to speak to him. He began to learn to hear the voice of the Lord. The voice of the Lord he heard of oftentimes was in spirit, not physical voice listened by physical ears. There were several times he heard voice of God with physical ears. Of course, the vocie of God must be in line with the Bible. Otherwise, that voice is certainly not of God.

One day, Bakht Singh saw a person passing by. God said to him, "Go to stop him." So, he stopped that person. That person stopped and asked him why he stopped him and then he continued to walk. Bakht Singh stopped him again. That person said the same words and asked him why he wasted his time. Bakht Singh said, " It is because the Lord has sent me." That person said, "I don't believe. Don't waste my time anymore."

Bakht Singh went after him again and asked him to stop. Then that person told him that he was tired of his life and was going to commit suicide. Bakht Singh asked him to give him half an hour and went together to a park nearby. Bakht Sing brought with his Bible and prayed to God first. Then he shared the gospel with that person. That person told Bakht Singh that his desire to commit suicid was gone. After that, he visited Bakht Singh once or twice more and he became a Christian and was born again.
