God’s Sheep Hear God’s Voice: Can You Recognize God’s Voice?

1. God’s utterances are the expressions of the Holy Spirit and they represent the identity of God, and there is a difference in essence between them and the words of man.

As we all know, the incarnate God is the Spirit of God clothed in flesh, He is God Himself, and the words expressed by Christ are the utterances of the Holy Spirit. These words are the truth, possessing both power and authority, and we can feel this when we hear them. When we hear the Lord Jesus making His promise to mankind, for example, when we hear the commandments He proclaimed to mankind, the words He spoke when He rebuked the Pharisees, His teachings, and so on, we immediately feel that the Lord’s words are the truth, that they have power and authority, they inspire reverence in our hearts, and we know deep down inside that these are the words of God. People, however, do not possess the essence of God, much less the identity of God. When we hear people speak, we are able to understand it, but we can in no way feel that people’s words have any power or authority, much less feel that they are the truth; they are just some words that benefit us, nothing more. This is the greatest difference between the words of God and the words of man, and we need only listen with our hearts to be able to tell them apart.

2. The words of God can begin the new age and end the old age, and they can show people the way to practice in the new age. People can only stand upon the foundation of God’s words and work to talk a little about their own experiences and understanding.

The words expressed by God incarnate can begin the new age and end the old age, and they can show people the way to practice in the new age. This is determined by God’s essence. The words of man, on the other hand, cannot begin the new age, nor can they show people the path to practice in the new age. All people can do is stand upon the foundation of God’s words and work to talk about their own insights and understanding, and they cannot go beyond the scope of God’s work and words. This is another difference between the words of God and the words of man. At the end of the Age of Law, for example, people were committing more and more sins, and many people were unable to keep the laws and were faced with being condemned and put to death by the laws. According to the needs of man, God Himself then became flesh and performed the work of redemption. The words and work of the Lord Jesus brought the Age of Law to a close and began the Age of Grace. He no longer taught people how to abide by the laws, but rather showed people a new path of practice: He asked that they confess their sins and repent, that they love their enemies, that they be humble, patient, forgiving, and that they love their neighbors as themselves, and so on. These words were newer, higher words spoken upon the foundation of the Age of Law. From that point on, people all spoke a little about their own understanding and knowledge upon the foundation of the Lord Jesus’ words and work, yet no one could go beyond the scope of God’s words and work.

3. The words of God can reveal mysteries; the words of man cannot.

God became flesh to save man and so He must express many truths and reveal many mysteries. That is why each time God becomes flesh, He always unveils many truths and mysteries, and this is something no human being can do. For example, when the Lord Jesus came, He revealed the mystery of how to enter the kingdom of heaven, and He also told us what work He would do when He came in the last days, and what omens would appear to signify His return, and so on.
