VOICES

    Once you begin to follow Jesus, you can expect to hear many voices that seek to lead you astray from the sound doctrine and teaching of the Bible.
    We are surrounded with many voices; the voice that we obey can determine our eternal destiny.
    Judas heard Satanís voice and betrayed Jesus-ref Mt 26:14-16. He perished.
    Peter heard Satanís voice and did not believe the voice of Jesus-ref Mk 8:31-33. Peter got rebuked.
    The high priest heard Satanís voice and believed Jesus was speaking blasphemy, when Jesus said He was the Son of the Blessed-ref Mk 14:61; Mt 26:63-68. It may have cost him his soul.
    The leper was healed by Jesus. Jesus told him to say nothing to any man, but the leper heard Satanís voice and disobeyed-ref Mk 1:40-45. As a result, JESUS COULD NO MORE OPENLY ENTER INTO THE CITY-Mk 1:45.
    Which voice do you hear?
    Pontius Pilate had determined to let Jesus go, but the raging of the peopleís voices persuaded him to do otherwise-ref Mt 27:23.
    Which voice do you follow?
    Then there is Satanís voice that will put lying thoughts in your mind, which will contradict Godís Word. He will tell you that you are not a sinner-ref Mk 2:17; 1 Jn 1:8,10. It is written, ALL HAVE SINNED, AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD-Ro 3:23. Which voice do you hear, the voice of truth? or the voice of deceit?

    Then there is Satanís voice that lies to many, telling them that they are really saved, when, in fact, they will perish to hell-ref Mt 7:21-23; Jn 8:39-45.
    It is written, OBEY MY VOICE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD-Jere 7:23.
    Which voice do you obey?
    Is it the voice of the desires of your heart?
    Is it the voice of the thoughts of your heart?
    Is it the voice of God and His Word?
    Which voice is louder? Which voice do you obey?
    Jesus said, HE THAT ENTERETH NOT BY THE DOOR INTO THE SHEEPFOLD, BUT CLIMBETH UP SOME OTHER WAY, THE SAME IS A THIEF AND A ROBBER. BUT HE THAT ENTERETH IN BY THE DOOR IS THE SHEPHERD OF THE SHEEP. TO HIM THE PORTER OPENETH; AND THE SHEEP HEAR HIS VOICE: AND HE CALLETH HIS OWN SHEEP BY NAME, AND LEADETH THEM OUT. AND WHEN HE PUTTETH FORTH HIS OWN SHEEP, HE GOETH BEFORE THEM, AND THE SHEEP FOLLOW HIM: FOR THEY KNOW HIS VOICE. AND A STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW, BUT WILL FLEE FROM HIM: FOR THEY KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF STRANGERS-Jn 10:1-5.
    Two voices are portrayed here. One is the voice of the Shepherd, which is Jesus. The other is the voice of the stranger, which is Satan. When we talk about the voice of the Shepherd, Jesus, we may also consider that Godís Word and the Holy Spiritís voice are the same. To follow the voice of Jesus is to follow the voice of Godís Word and the Holy Spirit. The sheep (true, born-again Christians) follow the voice of Godís Word, which they know. They do not follow the voice of Satan, for they do not know his voice.

    Is the voice of your heart leading you to God or to rebellion against God?
    There are many voices that we hear. These voices are from newspapers, the radio, the television, our flesh, our feelings, our emotions, our circumstances, our desires, and from people around us. The worldís voices lead us away from God. The voice of the Bible leads us to God.
    Which voice will you obey?
    Adam and Eve HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD GOD-Gen 3:8.
    Eve heard the voice of the serpent-ref Gen 3:1; she chose to obey the serpentís voice rather than Godís voice.
    Adam hearkened to the voice of his wife rather than Godís voice-ref Gen 3:17.
    In Ex 4:8, we see these words, THE VOICE OF THE FIRST SIGN...and THE VOICE OF THE LATTER SIGN. Circumstances speak to you.
    Gen 4:10-THE VOICE OF THY BROTHERíS BLOOD CRIETH.
    Gen 21:17-There is THE VOICE OF THE LAD (or childrenís voices or crying baby voices).
    Deut 21:18-There is THE VOICE OF (your) MOTHER
    1 Sam 2:25-There is THE VOICE OF (your) FATHER.
    Which voice do you follow?
    1 Sam 15:20-24-Saul obeyed the voice of the people rather than the voice of God, BECAUSE he FEARED THE PEOPLE. The peopleís voices were louder than Godís voice.
    Job 4:10-There is THE VOICE OF THE...LION. If you heard the voice or roaring of a lion, you might run.
    Ps 6:8-There is THE VOICE OF...WEEPING. This voice may trigger a compassionate response.

    Anger can blot out Godís still, small voice.
    Ps 55:3-There is THE VOICE OF THE ENEMY.
    Ps 102:5-There is THE VOICE OF MY GROANING.
    Which voice do you obey?
    You may be working. Your body feels tired, and there is a voice that tells you to lay down and rest.
    Ps 93:3-THE FLOODS have a VOICE. If a raging flood or water was coming at you, would you not run?
    Dan 10:9-There is THE VOICE OF HIS WORDS (the voice of a personís words).
    Ecc 5:3-A FOOLíS VOICE IS KNOWN BY (a) MULTITUDE OF WORDS.
    Which voice do you follow?
    There are the voices that preachers hear, saying, "Tell lots of worldly stories and vain janglings. Make the people laugh. Tell some jokes. Entertain the people." These voices enter our thoughts; they come from hearing others preach. These voices come even from Bible schools. Then there is the voice of God, saying, PREACH THE WORD-2 Tim 4:2. Most teachers of the Bible hearken to the voice of deceit. They teach only small portions of Godís Word with lots of other things mixed in. They might think, "Doesnít everyone do it this way?" So they hearken to the strangerís voice. Many in todayís churches are this way.
Which voice do you follow?
    Isa 48:20-There is A VOICE OF SINGING.
    Isa 66:6-There is A VOICE OF NOISE FROM THE CITY.

    1 Cor 14:10-THERE ARE...SO MANY KINDS OF VOICES IN THE WORLD.
    Which voice do you follow?
    Pv 8:1-UNDERSTANDING (puts) FORTH HER VOICE.
    Beware. Fear can blot out or suppress Godís voice. Pressures, pleasures, lusts, riches, and cares of this world can blot out or suppress Godís voice. Many of these voices can override Godís voice.
    Which voice will you follow?
    Will you follow the voice of truth or error?
    Will you follow the voice of truth mixed with error?
    What voices will you fill your spirit with?
    If you can read, but do not diligently study Godís Word and obey it, then are you not obeying a wrong voice?
    Consider Paulís words, FOR I KNOW THIS, THAT AFTER MY DEPARTING SHALL GRIEVOUS WOLVES ENTER IN AMONG YOU, NOT SPARING THE FLOCK. ALSO OF YOUR OWN SELVES SHALL MEN ARISE, SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS, TO DRAW AWAY DISCIPLES AFTER THEM. THEREFORE WATCH, AND REMEMBER, THAT BY THE SPACE OF THREE YEARS I CEASED NOT TO WARN EVERY ONE NIGHT AND DAY WITH TEARS-Acts 20:29-31.
    Isa 66:6-The VOICE OF THE LORD THAT RENDERETH RECOMPENSE TO HIS ENEMIES. The Lordís voice, the Word of God, the voice of Jesus is the only voice to follow.
    Consider. Which voice do you follow?
