Psalm 81:13-16 The Voice (VOICE) 13 If only My people would hear My voice and Israel would follow My direction! 14 Then I would not hesitate to humble their enemies and defeat their opposition Myself. 15 Those who hate the Eternal will cower in His presence, pretending to submit; they secretly loathe Him, yet their doom is forever. 16 But you—I will feed you the best wheat and satisfy you with honey out of the rock.”
Clearly the Lord is calling His people back to Himself in these last days.
He promises us Honey from the Rock which I believe is Jesus Himself.
His Presence and Power come when we fully listen to and obey His voice. Living in the Sweetness of the Savior’s Love comes at a price. We must first listen to what the Lord is saying to us…then we must obey His commands. He has made it clear that His sheep KNOW His voice…and the voice of another they will not follow. If you know Him, you will hear Him. You must steal away to a quiet place to listen to His Still Small Voice. There are many distractions in today’s world. Loud and busy sounds that come from sunup to sundown. Even constant listening to Christian tapes and Television can take you away from hearing Him. It is more important today than ever that every member of the Body of Christ train his ear to hear from heaven for themselves. Do NOT depend solely on another for guidance or advice. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will guide us in to all Truth. He will not lead you astray or give you a stone to eat.
He will satisfy you with “honey out of the Rock.”
YOU must listen.
YOU must obey.
For YOU alone will stand before Him and give account for what you have or haven’t done.
Are you truly living in the Sweet Honey Flow of His Love? When you kneel to pray, do you let Him speak back to you?
- Or do you just recite a litany of needs and requests in a one way monologue?
- Do you hear Him tell you to forgive the one who recently hurt you?
- Do you hear Him tell you that you need to turn off the television and begin to follow Him into a new dimension of His Presence?
- Perhaps He wants to tell you to take the courage to step out in a new venture, or that being diligent in your chosen profession is the way to victory.
- Have you heard Him say that every moment is precious in the Kingdom and should not be squandered by living in past hurts and failures?
What is He saying to you TODAY?
For TODAY He is speaking.
Clearly and concisely He is speaking.
If we have ears to hear…we must listen and obey.
Half of the Church is asleep.
They are busy with the affairs of this life and are lulled into complacency by a “business-as-usual” attitude
towards the Kingdom.
Let us listen to the words of Jesus speaking of these last days… Matthew 25 New King James Version (NKJV) The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins 25 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.
11 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ 12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”
I admonish you to seek the Lord while he may be found.
Make time EVERY day to learn from Him and receive Oil for your lamp.
One thing is FOR SURE. The Day of the Lord will come. There will come a time like the days of Noah when the doors of the Ark will be shut.
Let us not hesitate to receive all we can from Him now. It is time to store up for ourselves this treasure in Heaven. It is such a privilege.
