Hebrews 5:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 And being made perfect, he [Jesus] became the author and source of eternal salvation to all those who heed and obey him;1 [Salvation is to be delivered (freed) from all sin, even the desires, through persistent obedience to the Spirit that mortifies the selfish human spirit on the inward cross of self-denial. You must persistently and patiently wait for Him in silence to hear his commands, as you listen and watch; then heed and obey Him.]

Luke 9:35

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is my beloved Son. Listen to [believe, and obey] him." [This applies to all of us. We must hear the Lord speak to us and then obey; to obey is to follow. From the Word of the Lord within: "Follow precisely; do not deviate."]

Jeremiah 7:23

 23 But this I commanded them, saying: 'Listen to and obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people; and walk completely in the ways that I command you, so that it may be well with you.'2 [To hear the voice of the Lord we must patiently and persistently listen in humble silence; then we must obey what he commands completely. To obey is to follow the Lord, which all must do in order to be a true disciple. From the Word of the Lord within: "Follow precisely; do not deviate."]

 33 But whoever listens to me and heeds what I say, shall dwell safely; and he shall be at peace from the fear of evil."3

Hebrews 3:7-15

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 Therefore as the Holy Spirit said, "Today if you will hear his voice,

 8 Do not harden your hearts as in the provocation [and rebellion], in the day of temptation in the wilderness,

 9 When your fathers tempted me, tried me, and saw my works for forty years.

 10 Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, 'They are always erring in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

 11 So I swore in my wrath, 'They will not enter into my rest.'"

 12 Take heed, brothers, lest there be an evil heart of unbelief in any of you in departing from the living God.

 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you are hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end, [We can enter union with Christ and God if we through the Spirit mortify the sinful nature, which occurs if we heed and obey Him as we persistently and patiently wait for Him. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey His voice.]

 15 While it is said, "Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts, as in the provocation [and rebellion]."1
