“There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.” 1 Corinthians 14:10.
“And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” Luke 17:13.
“And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.” Luke 23:23.
The voice of God is speaking to us through His Word, and there are many voices that we will hear; but Christ has said we should beware of them who will say, Here is Christ or there is Christ. Then how shall we know that they have not the truth, unless we bring everything to the Scriptures? Christ has warned us to beware of false prophets who will come to us in His name, saying that they are Christ. …”
The time is coming when Satan will work miracles right in your sight, claiming that he is Christ; and if your feet are not firmly established upon the truth of God, then you will be led away from your foundation. The only safety for you is to search for the truth as for hid treasures. Dig for the truth as you would for treasures in the earth, and present the Word of God, the Bible, before your heavenly Father, and say, Enlighten me; teach me what is truth. –Ye Shall Receive Power, p. 128.
