The concept is simple: The Holy Spirit whispers to us but we have to learn how to hear those whispers and then act on those whispers. I want to take a moment today to share with you a few of the tactics Bill suggests for hearing the whispers of the Holy Spirit. According to Bill, they may sound like this:.
Bill suggests five filters through which you can test the message to see if it is coming from the Holy Spirit. When you hear that whisper ask these questions:. I think these are great questions to ask.
First go back to God and ask Him to confirm the message! The third and fourth questions are SO important. When there is sin in your life, your relationship with the Holy Spirit is affected. The Bible speaks of this as quenching the Spirit. We are commanded in. We quench the Holy Spirit when we sin. Get back to the basics of loving and obeying Jesus and you will hear the Spirit speaking once again.
Jesus, at the time He gave this teaching, was obviously physically present with the disciples. Yet, He was preparing them for the time in which He would be physically absent.
Does the Holy Spirit tell us everything we might want to know? No, God never promises to answer every question that pops into our heads. In fact, Jesus did not answer every question that people asked of Him. The Holy Spirit will teach us everything we need to know to follow Him.
Jesus taught His disciples a lot of things during the three years that they followed Him. How were they going to remember all the things that they learned? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
O Jehovah, in distress they missed Thee, They have poured out a whisper , Thy chastisement is on them. And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light.

This page was last edited on 21 April , at Khaz'goroth bestowed his mastery over the earth and forging to Keeper Archaedas. Golganneth granted Keepers Thorim and Hodir dominion over the storms and skies.
Eonar gave Keeper Freya command over Azeroth's flora and fauna. Norgannon lent a portion of his intellect and mastery of magic to Keepers Loken and Mimiron. Lastly, Aggramar imparted his strength and courage to Keeper Tyr , who would become the greatest warrior of the titan-forged. With this new army molded from the world's crust, the Pantheon went to war.
The time to shatter the Black Empire and free Azeroth from its malign influence had come As one, the keepers turned their righteous gaze on the heart of the Black Empire: the sprawling city built around the Old God Y'Shaarj.
By toppling the bastion on Azeroth, the keepers believed they could crush their enemies in one swift stroke. The keepers and their allies battled their way toward the mountainous form of Y'Shaarj, who was more powerful than the keepers expected. It poisoned the minds of the titan-forged, drawing out their fears and darkening their thoughts. The Pantheon grew concerned that the Old God would overwhelm their servants.
Despite the risk of harming the world, they decided to take direct action. Aman'Thul himself reached down through Azeroth's stormy skies and took hold of Y'Shaarj's writhing body. With a heave of his mighty arm, he tore the Old God from the crust of the world. In that moment, Y'Shaarj's bulk was ripped apart. The immensity of the Old God's death rattle shattered mountaintops and obliterated hundreds of titan-forged where they stood.
Y'Shaarj was dead, but its tendrils had bored more deeply through Azeroth than Aman'Thul had ever imagined. In excising the Old Gods from the world, he had ripped a wound in Azeroth's surface. Volatile arcane energies - the lifeblood of the nascent titan - erupted from the scar and roiled out across the world. Horrified by this turn of events, the Pantheon realized they could not risk killing the other Old Gods in such a manner. The malignant creatures had embedded themselves so deep into the world that tearing them out would destroy Azeroth itself.
The Pantheon knew that the only course of action was to imprison the Old Gods where they lay and contain their evil forever. It would be a difficult task, but it would be possible with the aid of the keepers.
At the Pantheon's behest, the titan-forged devised a plan to shatter the last vestiges of the Black Empire. They would battle each of the Old Gods directly. Once they had weakened the creatures, Archaedas would create subterranean chambers to contain them.
Mimiron would then fashion colossal machineries to lock the Old Gods in place. When this work was done, Loken would imbue each prison with a great enchantment that would neutralize the Old Gods' evil. Yogg-Saron had devised a plan to weaken its jailers and escape imprisonment. It would corrupt the Forge of Wills , tainting its creation matrix with a strange malady known as the curse of flesh. Yet, not even Neltharion's great wisdom and power proved capable of breaking the grip the old whisperings had on his mind, causing the Earth-Warder to eventually lose all his sanity.
Neltharion renamed himself Deathwing , seeking the genocide of all non-draconic life, the enslavement of the other dragonflights, and the release of his masters. The night elves Malfurion Stormrage and Varo'then momentarily heard the whisperings when they held the Demon Soul in their grasp. Malfurion has since stated that " Ysera's noble brood had fallen victim to the old whisperings", as well. This was a reference to the Emerald Nightmare. She accepted the Three's offer: Azshara and her Highborne would be saved, but they would become servants of the Old Gods.
They were subsequently transformed into the monstrous naga. The most striking historic account of the old whisperings, however, is found in the ancient scrolls of lore of the tauren tribes, kept at Elder Rise within their capital city of Thunder Bluff. The legend of creation of the tauren says that the first incidents of tauren having committed acts of deceit, murder or warfare were because some of their early brethren " hearkened to the dark whispers from deep beneath the world.
All the Old Gods encountered by adventurers to date have whispered to them throughout the fights, trying to convince the heroes of Azeroth to turn on their allies and give in to loneliness and despair.
For all the mystical and military might the Old Gods command, it is perhaps these whispers, and their penchant for manipulation, that are their greatest ability. An ancient prophecy speaks of the Hour of Twilight , the final days of the world and if the Old Gods that were chained long ago had their way set in motion, this chain of events would enact their final vision to remake the world in their image.
This, however, may be one variation of the prophecy, as the Pale Orcs of Draenor had also heard of an Hour of Twilight, one whispered to them by the Void lords themselves, stating that the Hour of Twilight is when the Void will consume all existence. The Old Gods have been called various different names by different individuals and organizations. The Old Gods' crazed worshipers seem to spring from all of the world's cultures and peoples.
The Old Gods are asleep and imprisoned deep beneath the earth, yet their power is so vast that their maddening, destructive taint seeps out from their prisons and appears to tear away at the sanity of some of Azeroth 's inhabitants.
To what extent sentient beings can fall under the influence of the Old Gods in this manner is not well understood, but those who hear the Old Whisperings most clearly have joined together in a coalition that is known as the Twilight's Hammer.
Most of these followers and cultists have lost every ounce of their sanity and have become completely unpredictable and malevolent, or were forever changed, for example into faceless ones or elemental ascendants. Through the leadership of the ogre-mage Cho'gall , a powerful champion of the Old God C'Thun , the Twilight's Hammer became the focal point for mortal worship of the Old Gods. Large groups of the Twilight's Hammer have been observed to settle at or near sites where they believe the Old Gods or their minions are sealed away; many await C'Thun's awakening in Silithus , while others appear to serve Ragnaros in the Blackrock Depths alongside the Dark Iron dwarves.
The largest concentrations of the Twilight's Hammer, however, were located at Grim Batol and the Bastion of Twilight , within a region of the Eastern Kingdoms that is now referred to as the Twilight Highlands. In addition to adding legendary card versions of the four Azerothian Old Gods, the expansion added a myriad of different cards related to the eldritch beings in some way — mainly in the form of faceless ones , mortal cultists and "what-if" corrupted versions of existing characters such as the Polluted Hoarder Loot Hoarder or Hogger, Doom of Elwynn Hogger.
C'Thun was the primary focus of the expansion, and was accompanied by a total of 16 different minion cards who either buffed C'Thun in various ways or activated unique effects if C'Thun had been buffed a sufficient amount of times.
The names and overall nature of the Old Gods are an homage to the various group of deities from the Cthulhu Mythos in the works of H. Lovecraft 's shared Cthulhu Mythos. Furthermore, the story which concerns the titans' imprisoning of the Old Gods is an inspiration from the story August Derleth proposed as the ancient outcome of the war between the Elder Gods represented in the titans and the Outer Gods represented in the Old Gods.
