Jeremiah 7:23

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 23 But this I commanded them, saying: 'Listen to and obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people; and walk completely in the ways that I command you, so that it may be well with you.'2 [To hear the voice of the Lord we must patiently and persistently listen in humble silence; then we must obey what he commands completely. To obey is to follow the Lord, which all must do in order to be a true disciple. From the Word of the Lord within: "Follow precisely; do not deviate."]

Hebrews 5:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 And being made perfect, he [Jesus] became the author and source of eternal salvation to all those who heed and obey him;1 [Salvation is to be delivered (freed) from all sin, even the desires, through persistent obedience to the Spirit that mortifies the selfish human spirit on the inward cross of self-denial. You must persistently and patiently wait for Him in silence to hear his commands, as you listen and watch; then heed and obey Him. From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God."]

Luke 8:21,11:28

 21 And he answered and said to them, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God, and do it [obey]." [This is one of the critical verses to be understood. The Greek for word in this verse is logon <3056>, which in English means: 1) of speech; 1a) a word, uttered by a living voice, embodies a conception or idea; 1b) what someone has said. Hearing someone read words from the Bible does not make you a brother or relative of Jesus, but if you persistently and patiently go to Him, by sitting and waiting for Him in humble silence, listening for His words, and watching for His revelations, you will eventually become pure and be made a son of God, (a brother too, and co-heir with, Jesus), to be led and guided by Him in all your thoughts, words, and deeds. One hears Jesus, the word of God, speak to them from within their hearts; they believe in what they hear him speak to them to be true (thus to believe in Jesus), and so they obey him. From the Word of the Lord within: "Faith is to hear the Word of God and obey. Hear and live; the Spirit gives life with every word heard." As James wrote, "be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves." James 1:22-24]

 28 But he said, "Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God [within your heart] and keep [practice, obey] it." [This is one of the critical verses to be understood. The Greek for word in this verse is logon <3056> which in English means: 1) of speech; 1a) a word, uttered by a living voice, embodies a conception or idea; 1b) what someone has said. Hearing someone read words from the Bible is not blessed; but when you hear the word of God within your heart speak to you, you are blessed with receiving a small measure of the life of God, (Jesus is the life); for the words Jesus speaks to you impart the life of God to you. John 6:63. From the Word of the Lord within: "Faith is to hear the Word of God and obey. Hear and live; the Spirit gives life with every word heard."]

Revelation 3:3

 3 Remember therefore what you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent.2 If you do not wake up and watch, I will come upon you like a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.
