When He had said this, He shouted with a loud voice, Lazarus, come out! And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] napkin bound around his face. Jesus said to them, Free him of the burial wrappings and let him go. John 11:43-44 (AMP)
And Jesus cried again with a loud voice and gave up His spirit. And at once the curtain of the sanctuary of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; the earth shook and the rocks were split. The tombs were opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep in death were raised [to life]; Matthew 27:50-52(AMP).
In our world today, there are many voices calling for your attention. Everyone is crying out with a new idea, a new philosophy. Government, the chuch, the mosque, terrorists, activists, fundamentalist etc all pushing their ideas forward. Each entity claiming to be right or at least to have a case. Each entity throwing in ‘something’; adding thier voice to the already ‘cluttered’ airspace.
All these voices unite into a constant buzz that keeps going on in your head and sends confusion into your heart. Its difficult to decipher which to listen to as none of them is distinct enough to stand out of the lot.
If you tune your ear however, there is a voice that rings clear, howbeit, on another frequency. It is the voice of Jesus. The voice of truth, of life and of direction. Whenever Jesus spoke when He lived on earth, his voice was clear. It was obvious to all who heard him exactly what He meant and what He stood for. His opponents where always silenced when they engaged him in debates.
At the tomb of Lazarus, Jesus cried out with a loud voice and Lazarus came walking out of the tomb alife. On the cross, Jesus once a gain cried out with aloud voice- the earth quaked and the dead rose.
Jesus is still crying out with a loud voice today. Where do you need to hear his voice?…Listen.
