Abide under the shadow of the great white dove

Jesus said, My sheep know my voice, and they follow Me, and I know them, and another they will not follow.

When you say you hear a voice, it makes everyone quite nervous. Voices, they say? You better be afraid, they say. You better be careful, they say. Could be the devil, they say. Not so, says Jesus. Jesus says, My sheep know my voice. Now how can you know a voice you do not hear? And how can you follow a voice if you do not hear a voice speak? Jesus said another thing, Those of the truth hear my voice. Every one of the truth hears my voice, Jesus said.

Jesus said, I know them that know my voice. How does Jesus know those that hear Him and follow Him and obey Him? Because they do all those things. Because they follow and obey, He knows those that both hear His voice and obey His voice. Now, a voice is a voice is a voice! And Jesus said, you shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of GOD. Now how can words come out of a mouth without sound? without voice? They cannot!

Now Jesus knows us by our obedience. For we cannot obey what we do not hear and if we obey we have also heard, have we not? Therefore, Jesus knows us, and we know Him, and we are of the truth because if we were not, we would not hear His voice! Those of the truth hear His voice, only those of the truth. They are given the spirit of truth, those who are of the truth, and they hear and obey that spirit of truth.

Jesus said, Those that worship the Father worship the Father in Spirit and in truth. Those that hear the spirit of truth, are of the truth, and walk in the truth, and hear the truth, and obey the truth, and the truth is a VOICE!

The Spirit of truth first, leads in the paths of righteousness. It does not lead into the paths of evil.

The Spirit of truth leads into all truth, as written of Him. When He comes, He shall lead us into all truth, and restore all truth, and shall reprove evil, shall issue judgment.

Jesus said, another they will not follow, those that hear His voice. ANOTHER THEY WILL NOT FOLLOW, THOSE THAT HEAR HIS VOICE! And His voice does not disagree with His words that were spoken in the gospels, and in Revelation.

So those that run here and there, do not hear His voice, and those that follow men, do not hear His voice, and those that do not hear His voice, do not hear His voice because they do not walk in the truth, do not tell the truth, do not speak the truth, are not of the truth. For the sheep know the shepherd's voice and the shepherd knows every single one of His sheep and calls them by name.

Now the scriptures say that satan can masquerade himself as an angel of light, as an angel of truth, as an angel of righteousness. How can we tell if a mouth is speaking lies, whether it is from the world of spirits or out of the mouths of men, or even coming from the lords of the churches and the kings and priests of the temples of GOD?

For John says in the letters, We must try the spirits and test them to see whether they are of GOD or not. What is this testing? What is this trying? 1st John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of GOD: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of GOD: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of GOD: and this is the spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Please pay particular attention to the word 'is'. Jesus 'is' come in the flesh, not 'has' but 'is'. Of course no one disputes Jesus 'has' come in the flesh, for even history teaches us of this undeniable fact. So now, hear that word again, 'IS', present tense.

Now whose flesh? Your flesh. Whose flesh? My flesh. My sheep hear my voice, Jesus said. Paul said, those that are Christ's are led by the Spirit, the Voice, and if they are not led by the Spirit, they are not of Christ.

Now, the scriptures command us to be of one accord, one spirit, one voice, and to walk agreed. How can we do that if we are following the minds and mouths of men who love contentions and strifes? How can we do that unless we are all of Jesus Christ? all of one spirit? all of one voice? We cannot! Therefore is Christ divided? full of discord? full of division? tearing down His own house? OF COURSE NOT! There are simply two kinds of believers, those that hear His voice and those that do not, those that say He has not come in the flesh and those that say He has, because they hear Him, within them, not without, but within, for He has taken up abode within them, and Jesus said, I and my Father are one. They were and are yet, ONE VOICE! They agree in ONE VOICE! Those that do not hear Him of course say He 'is' not come in the flesh. Those that hear Him give the testimony of Him within them, the Voice, that voice that speaks.

Those that hear His voice, live the way Jesus lived. Those that hear His voice, preach just what He preached. Those that hear His voice, do the works that Jesus did. Those that hear His voice, love His Father as He did. Those that hear His voice, obey the WORD just as He did. Those that hear His voice, are led into the paths of righteousness, power, truth, and they are filled with obediences and not disobediences, filled with love and not hatred, and filled with mercy and not wrath. Those that follow the voice, find first of all that it is pure. It is peaceful. It is gentle. It is kind. It is loving. It is without hypocrisy. It agrees with the WORD and it follows after peace with all men. It heals what it wounds, mends what it breaks, and is jealous over its vessels. When a believer becomes the temple of the voice, he becomes sealed in the hand of the Father, and woe unto any flesh and blood who touch the untouchables.

Rev. 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.


Jesus said: John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
