Millions have been converted because one man waited to hear His voice. Saul "fell to the earth, and heard a voice" (Acts 9:4). And when he became Paul, he kept on hearing that voice. The Lord spoke man-to-man with him.

Peter allowed the Savior's voice to come to him. "Peter went up upon the housetop to pray . . . And there came a voice to him (Acts 10:9 and 13).

The door into the kingdom was opened because a man obeyed a voice. We are living in the same New Testament times as Paul and Peter. We, too, must allow His voice to come to us. What God could do with Christians who learn to hear from heaven!

Instead of waiting for His voice to come to us, we run to counselors and Christian psychologists. We run to one session or another, reading books, listening to tapes, longing to hear from God. We want a clear word of direction for our lives and look to pastors to tell us what is right and wrong.

We want a leader to follow, a diagram for the future. But few know how to go to the Lord and hear His voice. There are many who know how to get God's attention, to really touch God, but they know nothing about God reaching them.

"He that hath ears to hear, let them hear" (Matthew 11:15).

God wants to shake the earth once more. "See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven" (Hebrews 12:25-26).

To the last church, the Laodicean church, the Lord cries, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20).
