There is a Kingdom that has always been, and will always be. It is found in the heart of Jehovah God who has no beginning or end. He lives in eternity, and rules over all that exist. Before time began, before you were born, God had an eternal purpose for your life. The only way to find and fulfill this eternal purpose is through a relationship with The Eternal King, Jesus Christ. This blog is about The Eternal King and His Kingdom. It is about how you can be part of His Kingdom by having a relationship with Him, and fulfilling His eternal purpose for you.

The Voice of Jesus

The world has so many voices speaking to us today. Through books, newspapers, radio, television, the internet, telephones, iPhones, facebook, tweets, etc. We are being constantly bombarded with information.  If we don’t hear the voice of Jesus through the din, then the enemy will distract us from God’s purposes and His Eternal Kingdom. Our lives can become cluttered with useless activity, and fear of the unknown can rob us of the faith and joy God wants us to have. 

We must learn to base our lives not on the words of men, but on the Word of God.  According to John 1 Jesus is the Word come to earth in the flesh.  His is the only voice we should be listening to.  The voice of Jesus is the only thing that can save, heal, deliver and guide us in the right direction. Proverbs 4:20-27 says: 
      20 My son, give attention to my words; 
      Incline your ear to my sayings. 
       21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; 
      Keep them in the midst of your heart; 
       22 For they are life to those who find them, 
      And health to all their flesh. 
       23 Keep your heart with all diligence, 
      For out of it spring the issues of life. 
       24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth, 
      And put perverse lips far from you. 
       25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, 
      And your eyelids look right before you. 
       26 Ponder the path of your feet, 
      And let all your ways be established. 
       27 Do not turn to the right or the left; 
      Remove your foot from evil.  NKJV

How can we hear the voice of Jesus?  To hear His voice we must first seek His Kingdom.  This means our greatest desires must be that His will be done in our lives and the lives of those around us.  We must love Him more than any other person. Our goals and ambitions must be based on the things He has spoken to our hearts during our times of studying The Word and prayer.  We must see everything we posses as a gift from Him that He gave to us to be used for His purposes.  

We must know His Word, The Bible.  This means we must read The Bible all the way through.  If you read three (3) chapters a day you can read it through in a year.  If you read it with a heart that is fully surrendered you will hear His voice and He will show you how it applies to your life.  Often times He will speak His word to us through other people.  If your heart is not surrendered, you may not hear what He’s trying to say to you.

One thing that can hinder us from hearing God’s voice is disobedience.  When we are not obedient to His Spirit, He may stop speaking until we have done what He told us to do.  The more obedient we are the more He will speak and tell us the things we need to know.

If we don’t learn to hear the voice of Jesus, we will be led astray into the traps of the enemy.  The result will be wasted lives and broken homes.  We will look to men, political leaders, famous individuals, and our own resources to meet our needs.  These will fail and we will wonder what happened.  Jesus is our only hope.  We must listen only to His voice if we are to be successful on our journey through life.
