John 10:3-5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 To him the doorkeeper opens; and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. [He leads them out of their slavery to sin, John 8:31-32, out of the world into the kingdom, to walk in the light, John 8:12. From the Word of the Lord within: "You will hear His voice when He calls you." You will hear His voice for the first time after the baptism of fire and death to then be called forth and resurrected with Him as a new creature, raised to the kingdom.]

 4 And when he has brought out his own sheep, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him; for they know his voice. [To be brought out is to be led out of the world into the kingdom, then to be guided by the Lord's commands for your every word and every deed. ]

 5 They will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him; for they do not know the voice of strangers." [Once you are in the kingdom, you know His voice and you are able to reject the wicked one's attempts to impersonate his voice.]
