The ‘voice’ to hear….

“This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” Luke 9:34:35

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. John 5:25

Today, we are bombarded with voices. If a person is privileged to speak to a national audience even before the speech is finished, it is torn apart by enemies and even those who agree with the person will sometimes attempt to interpret it and we may miss the meaning. Tweeters ‘tweet’ about it, bloggers ‘blog’, and commentators ‘comment!’ So often the message is obscured or lost. 

God only allowed a privileged few to write about His Son.

Luke, the physician, was privileged to write and set in order the events that occurred in Jesus life that He would have us know. A day came when Jesus was on a high mountain and while he was there Luke tells us that something amazing happened. While on this mountain (that some scholars say was Mt. Tabor), Peter began to speak sincerely but foolishly. God reminded him and us that Jesus’ voice is the one we must hear:

While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were fearful as they entered the cloud. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” Luke 9:34:35

Perhaps this is why ‘quiet time’ in our daily lives is more important today than at any time in our history. We must find a way to get alone with the Lord and hear Him. May God help our nation and each of us personally if we fail to do so.
