The Lord's Voice

The Lord’s Voice
“Enter into His gates with “thanksgiving” and into His courts with “praise;” be thankful unto Him and “bless His name;” [That is worship]. [Ps. 104:4]. Notice how we come into His presence! This is a type of getting to The Father, we go through the gates to go into the outer courts of the Temple of God. We enter the inner court with praise, then bless His name which is worship, coming into the Holy of Hollies. “For the Lord is good; and His mercy endures to all generations”

We are going to talk about “His voice” but just as we enter into His presence by Thanksgiving, praise and Worship, there is a protocol to hear His voice. “Give unto the Lord oh you mighty ones, Give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. [Ps.29:1-2]. Notice the Word says Give, Give, Give- three times. First Give oh you mighty ones, indicating His body; that’s those of us who are born again, because we are the only ones who can give what He ask. Second: Give Glory and strength. We Give Him the Glory for everything that He has given and worked through us, with all our strength! Three: Give unto the Lord the Glory due to His Name: Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. We return to Him all we have, body, soul and spirit that He has given us in His own awesome Holiness! He said “be ye holy as I am holy” We can do that only as we give ourselves to Him. He said, “Lift up holy hands” Our hands may not be Holy, but when we lift them to Him and Glorify Him, they become Holy!

“The Voice of the Lord is over many waters” [V.3}. Many times, in the Bible when it says waters and does not name the body of water, it is referring to people. His voice is over many people, true! “The God of glory thunders” His voice many times sounds like Thunder. “The voice of the Lord is Powerful.” He spoke the world into existence. “The voice of the Lord is majestic.” [V.4].

“The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars” [V.5]. Christians are a type of cedar trees. We have to be broken before Him so we can get out of our self and be totally yielded to Him. Cedar trees are very noble, stately, grows high. The Godly are renound people, tough, they grow high in spiritual experiences. Cedars root deep, roots spread in many directions: Christians root deep and spread their influence in many directions. They are rooted in the covenant. Now that said the Godly. “There are much that we are likened to cedars. The space here is too limited.

“The voice of Lord divides the flames of fire” [V.7]. There are two kinds of fire” John the Baptist said, ”I indeed baptize you with water for the remission of sin, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire ”His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire”[Matt.3:11-12]. In this we see two kinds of fire, the Holy Ghost fire to be baptized with, setting us on fire in Him, to purify us and for us to witness to others also to have power to minister to others [Acts1:8]. We see another fire in verse twelve that burns up chaff anything that is not Godly. We may be looking at a fire that purifies and one of Judgment.

Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice” Are you hearing His voice? Do you take Him with you everywhere you go? If Not, just ask Him to forgive you for all your sins, invite Him into your heart and teach you how to live the way He wants you to. You will Hear “The Lords Voice.”
