I just watched a great film with Denzel Washington called “Man on Fire.”
The lynchpin kidnapper was devotedly called “The Voice”, and for good reason.
In the film, children were abducted in Mexico City for millions of dollars from wealthy families. The parents would then receive a phone call from a man whom they would never see. “The Voice” on the other line would disseminate strict instructions on how to make the ransom drop . Failure to do as “The Voice” instructed, resulted in the summary slaying of the child. Eventually “The Voice” was revealed as Daniel Sanchez who was executed by the Mexican police.
But “The Voice”, the only authentic one, is the voice of God.
“The Voice” is the Holy Spirit.
Matt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every (rhema) word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
The rhema word of God is the moment by moment utterances of “The Voice”, The Holy Spirit.
Living a life which is true and lasts forever, can only comes by obedience to the utterances of “The Voice.”
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the ( rhema ) word of God:
He who cannot hear “The Voice” will not have the sword of God at her disposal.
1Co 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit. For the Spirit searcheth ( sounds out ) all things, yea, the deep things of God.
As a submarine sounds out the fathomless depths of the ocean, it is “The Voice” who sounds out the deep things of God, Himself.
If we are to live in the depths of revelation knowledge versus the shallowness of this word’s deception, we must function by “The Voice.”
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the ( rhema ) Word of God.
Life changing faith, the faith of God Himself, is transported to you by The Voice.
Man’s most essential duty is to clearly hear The Voice for himself.
There is no greater privilege or essentialism in this life, than to guide one’s life from moment to moment by The Voice.”
Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may b!e able to stand against the wiles (methodologies) of the devil.
The only safety against this word ‘s trickery is to hear and obey “The Voice”.
The devil pumps this globe with lying methodologies from instance to instance. Our negotiation around his schemes is in obedience to “The Voice.”
Unbeknown to mankind is that whomsoever does not follow “The Voice”, is as Mel Gibson in the cornfield scene of movie, “Signs”, attempting to battle the secretive alien.
This is how man or woman without “The Voice” negotiates life. Cheers!
