In our last post we talked about the importance of hearing and obeying the call of "follow Me".

We now discuss the importance of knowing the voice of YHWH. One reason why it is so important is because your life, and mine, depend upon knowing Him.... "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." Yochanan 17:3 (Jn.)

Have you ever had a love one call you on the phone and, as soon as your say hello, and they begin to speak you know instantly who it is? This has resulted from spending lots of time with that loved one. You know their habits of speech, the nuances of voice. As it is in our earthly relationships, even more so in the Heavenly.
The storms which we have in our lives now are the smaller squalls which are 'workmen' to work within us to both will and to do of His pleasure. Now is the time to learn in the School of Messiah. If we make mistakes, (and we will), do not wallow  in your misery. Your defeat can be turned into a great stepping stone if you and I would simply learn the valuable lesson in it.

The Natzarim (disciples) of Yahshua had to hear more that just the physical sound of Yahshua calling them to follow him. Listen, who in their right mind is going to leave their fishing business, tax collecting business, and other occupations of life and follow a man whom they never met and who is so poor that even the foxes and birds have more than Him; in terms of a place to call home.

Think about it......suppose someone (a homeless person) comes to you and says; follow me. You and I would say....who is this person? Does he/she need to type of psychiatric help?

If we are honest with ourselves this is what attitude most of us would have. I'm here to share with you now that the natzarim heard far more than an audible "follow me" call.

This "follow me" call was from YHWH Himself. And how do we know this? "....God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself," 2Cor. 5:19 YHWH has a way of calling that is so penetrating that it speaks to the very core and essence of our being. He has a call that is distinct from every human call;   .....when He calls His voice is as the sound of many waters. [See Y'chizki'el 43:2 & Hagilu Natan Elohim 1:15] KJV (Eze. 43:2; Rev.1:15)  I'm persuaded to believe that the "many waters" is indicative of the many frequencies with which He speaks. Each pitch is characteristic of each person whom He has made. In other words, every person has unique frequency. And when YHWH calls you; you hear in your inner most being the "call" because it is in the key/frequency with which you where created.

This is how much you mean to YHWH. This is how much He loves you and me. We are individually special to Him.So when you calls you; you know  who He is.

I wish to end this teaching/ sharing with the lyrics to a wonderful song I've just now discovered. The song is called God Speaking:

Have you ever heard a love song, that set your spirit free?

Have you ever watched a sunrise and felt you could not breathe?
What if it’s Him. What if it’s God speaking?
Have you ever cried a tear that you could not explain?
Have you ever met a stranger who already knew your name?
What if it’s Him. What if it’s God speaking?
Who knows how He’ll get a hold of us?
Get our attention to prove He is enough.
He’ll do, and He’ll use whatever He wants to.
To tell us, I Love You..........

You can get the rest of the lyrics to this song from:

Shalom In Yahshua Messiah.


  1. I think in Biblical times, it may have been a bit easier to follow someone. They had strict rules of hospitality and you were almost certain to be treated with a bit of respect when going to a new place. That is unlike today where everyone has to have reservations and respect is given with the plastic card.

    I know what it is like to be in a strange place with nowhere to stay. I actually stayed in a Salvation Army mission overnight many years ago.

    I appreciate your blog and the fact that it is totally devoted to YHWH.

  2. Thank you. Timely words spoken under the anointing of the Ruach.

  3. Ken- Shabbat Shalom to you and thanks be to YHWH for your kind remarks and His Words of Truth.

    Pamela- Homelessness....I know what you mean.

  4. Dear Yuri,

    Thanks for the post. I think the calling of the disciples and their leaving everything to follow him is also rooted in the Jewish cultural links. In the time of Yeshua and the ages past it was the highest honor to study under a Rabbi. The idea was to not only to be a great scholar but to have a relationship with God by in-depth study of the scriptures and following in the shadows of the Rabbi, becoming more like him. Only the best of the best made the cut to live under the Rabbi like Paul did with Gamaliel. The fishermen and most of them Yeshua called were not among the best of the best, these were students who went on to other professions. So when the Rabbi called they left everything to follow him but in this case the call was coming from the greatest Rabbi of all, the source of life itself. And He considered them to become like Him and gave them the honor to be covered under the dust of the Rabbi. This traditional Jewish blessing to be covered under the dust of the Rabbi is crucial.

    Blessings thanks again for the post.

  5. Sam,

    Thanks for your comment on the matter. This expands the understanding that, Yahshua's ministry was first of all initiated by the supernatural manifestation of the opening of the heavens,the Ruach (in dove form) coming upon Him; and the Fathers voice from Heaven proclaiming His ones with His only begotten Son. This, I believe, was the first and primary, influence given to Yahshua's ministry. Then we have Yochanan (John the Baptist) influence given to Him also at the Jordan River....the secondary witness and influence given to Yahhsua's ministry. And with the third component (the cultural), and put them all together we have a fuller view of the forces at work; when Yahshua said "follow me". When we add the counter working forces (ha Satan 400yrs of false teachings of the Messiah), the 'learned' priest and rabbi's instilling these false views of Messiah into the populace, and the evident strong false beliefs of the general public, about the manner and work of the Messiah; the natzarim's obedience to the call is amazingly faith.....ful. Obedience full of faith....which we too are to live by.
