Many people profess to be Christians, followers of Jesus Christ but they do not know His voice, they do not hear Him. Jesus said:”My sheep hear My voice, they listen and they follow Me.”
Most preachers do not know the voice of Jesus Christ. They say He speaks through the Bible but they do not hear Him speaking.
Not all believers are children of God. Not all those who profess to believe in Jesus are of Him. We read in John chapter 8 verse 31:
31So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” 33They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”
34Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35“The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. 36“So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. 37“I know that you are Abraham’s descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38“I speak the things which I have seen with My Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from your father.”
39They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you are Abraham’s children, do the deeds of Abraham. 40“But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do. 41“You are doing the deeds of your father.” They said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father: God.” 42Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. 43“Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. 44“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45“But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. 46“Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? 47“He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”
These Jews that Jesus was speaking to also believed in Him just like many people who say that they
believe in Jesus; many preachers but yet they do not hear His voice. Most professing Christians today are also professing sinners; they say they cannot stop sinning. Why is it that they do not accept the words of Jesus, who said that “he who sins is a slave to sin” and “if the Son of God has set to free you will be free.”
It is because they are not of God they are not of Jesus Christ; they say they believe but they do not accept His words. They do not listen, they do not hear Him speaking to them because they are in
denial. They say they read the Bible and God speaks through the Bible; they don’t want to hear Jesus Christ and when He does speak to them they reject it. They say:”How can I know it is God speaking to me?” It is because they are not of God; they are not of Jesus. They do not hear His voice because they are not of Him. They do not want the truth; they do not want Jesus Christ and that is why they do not hear Him.
If we seek Jesus we will find Him; if we seek Him with all our heart then we will hear Him speaking to us, we will trust Him. We will yearn for Him more than anything else, But people are not interested
they are more interested in fun, entertainment, their TV, the things of the world and that is why they are not hearing when Jesus speaks to them. God is speaking loud and clear but very few are listening. His sheep, they hear His voice, they listen and they follow Him; they are not in darkness but they belong to Him. If we do not hear the voice of God, if we do not hear Jesus speaking to us it is because we are not of Him we are of satan. If we do not understand the words of Jesus when He says: SIN NO MORE, we are not of Him, we are of satan.
These professing Christians who say they cannot stop sinning they are of their father the devil; they are not of God. If we are of God, if we are of Jesus Christ we do His works and we bear fruit. Without Jesus we can do nothing but if we are in Christ, if we are grafted into the True Vine, we will bear good fruit. Every branch that does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned and that is why so many are being cut off and burned. They believe they are saved but they will end up in hell because they are not
of God they do not hear His voice; they do not obey Him they do not follow Him because that are not of God. Do we hear His voice?
Do we seek Him follow Him and obey Him. Are we of God? Are we of Jesus Christ? Are we
truly children of God? If we seek Him we will find Him, we will hear Him and we
will follow Him.
May Jesus bless you.
