Jesus said:”My sheep LISTEN to My voice and they follow Me. They will not listen to strangers because they do not know the voice of the strangers. They will run away from them.”(John 10) Many people believe that they are saved but they DO NOT KNOW THE VOICE OF JESUS. They have never met Jesus! They just believe they are saved based on what other people told them but they have no relationship with Jesus Christ. They don't know Him and that is why he will say to many who believed they were saved:”Go away I never knew you, you workers of wickedness.”
YOU CANNOT FOLLOW JESUS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HIS VOICE, then you are not His sheep! You cannot follow Him if you have not received His Spirit. You need to KNOW Jesus. You KNOW HIS VOICE!
Many people say to me: How do you distinguish between the Holy Spirit and evil spirits? They DON'T KNOW Jesus! If you have met Him YOU WILL KNOW HIS VOICE! After Jesus appeared to the apostle Paul on the Damascus road Paul followed Him, He KNEW Him, He KNEW HIS VOICE, HE NEVER DOUBTED AGAIN after that. He went on to die for Jesus. He KNEW His VOICE. The gospel that he preached he did not receive from other people, he got it from Jesus in revelation. He LISTENED TO JESUS! He was led by the Holy Spirit. If we do not know His voice we cannot follow Him and we are not HIS.
You can read your Bible as much as you like. You can listen to all the little tapes and videos and read all the books that other people write but IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE VOICE OF JESUS THEN YOU DO NOT KNOW HIM, and YOU ARE LOST!
Have you met Jesus Christ? Do you know His voice? If you don't, GO ON YOUR KNEES! PRAY! SEEK HIM until He reveals Himself to you and then YOU WILL KNOW HIS VOICE. You will not doubt any more. Once you know His voice, you can follow Him and then you know the One in whom you have believed.
Do YOU know HIS VOICE and do you FOLLOW and OBEY Him, every day? Are you REALLY one of His sheep?
May Jesus bless you.
