John 10:27

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me [they obey].4 [True followers deny their own will to obey his commands and teachings, which they hear him speak to them from the word in their heart. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life-giving. John 6:63]

John 5:37,8:47

 37 And the Father himself, who has sent me, has testified concerning me. You have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his form.4 [Jesus has just told us the criteria of a person who knows God: they have heard his voice and seen his form. God is only known by revelation: what you hear and see in your heart. Rom 1:19, Mat 11:27. The Lord told the Jews that they must heed and listen to the voice of the Lord to receive his blessings and be able to do the commandments, and then He severely warned them that if they did not heed and listen to the voice of the Lord their God, they would suffer horrible curses; they not only suffered those horrible curses many times, they persecuted Jesus and his Apostles because they had no true understanding of the scriptures, which understanding only comes by listening to and obeying the Voice of the Lord. Listen, hear, incline your ear, give ear, heed, attend, come to me, obeythe scriptures are full of these critical advisories, and now the Christians refuse them.]

 47 He who is of God, hears God's words. You cannot hear his words because you are not of God."7 [My sheep hear my voice. Everyone of the truth hears my voice. John 10:27,18:37]

John 6:63

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life-giving.6 [Jesus is the bread of life: the life of God. From the Word of the Lord within: " The words I speak to you impart life; the Spirit gives life with every word heard." To acquire more of Jesus, (the life), you must get quiet, wait on Him, listen, hear His words that he speaks to you, and then obey what He commands. His words that he speaks to us impart the life of God to us and are engrafted into our hearts; and since Jesus is the life of God, His spoken words form Jesus within us, until finally He is resurrected in us to be our true Lord, ruling our thoughts, words, and deeds.]

 7 Again, he limits a certain day, saying in David's Psalms, Today, which was long after [God swore his oath]; as it is said, "Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your heart,"[As occurred in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness.]

Isaiah 55:3

 3 Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear, and your soul shall live;2 and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies promised to David. [To come to Him, we go directly to Him, by sitting in humble silence as we wait on Him, listening for His voiced commands and teachings. From the Word of the Lord within: "We go to him, and he rains help on us; well does this exercise of God purify those who do. Come to me with the hope of speaking and acting righteously."]

 37 Therefore Pilate said to him, "Are you a king then?" And Jesus answered, "You say [rightly] that I am a king. To this end I was born, and for this reason I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice."2

 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at Jesus' feet and heard his word. [We hear his word from within our hearts. Rom 10:8,17.]

 28 But he said, "Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God [within your heart] and keep [practice, obey] it." [This is one of the critical verses to be understood. The Greek for word in this verse is logon <3056> which in English means: 1) of speech; 1a) a word, uttered by a living voice, embodies a conception or idea; 1b) what someone has said. Hearing someone read words from the Bible is not blessed; but when you hear the word of God within your heart speak to you, you are blessed with receiving a small measure of the life of God, (Jesus is the life); for the words Jesus speaks to you impart the life of God to you. John 6:63. From the Word of the Lord within: "Faith is to hear the Word of God and obey. Hear and live; the Spirit gives life with every word heard."]

 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."]
