Listen To him! today!

today we continue on with Hebrews 3.
7Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

"Today, if you hear his voice, 8do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
9where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.
10Therefore I was provoked with that generation,and said, 'They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.'
11 As I swore in my wrath,
'They shall not enter my rest.'"

12Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called "today," that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. 15As it is said,

"Today, if you hear his voice,do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."

16For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses? 17And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.

we know that Jesus is better than the angels and better than Moses.

THEREFORE says the Holy Spirit, TODAY if you Hear his voice...LISTEN TO IT!

Do not harden your hearts as you have in the past.

Take care and listen, take care lest you fall away from God with hardened hearts. Exhort your fellow believers every single day to not have hardened hearts, but hearts that listen.

Remember what happens to those who harden their hearts. Don't be like them. Do not be like those who can't enter into God's rest.

Listen to him! Today!
