It is no Light thing to Hear God’s Voice or as well receive direct Revelation of Scripture [which is the very Words of God written down for all to read]. The fact is, when you do HEAR HIM SPEAKING then that puts you in a very particular position of Responsibility. The Scriptures warn us that if the Words that were spoken by Angles was Steadfast, and every sin and disobedience revealed did receive a Recompense of Reward; we must WATCH OUT AND KNOW [We MUST NOT LET THIS WORD REVEALED SLIP BY CARELESSLY].
The Scriptures say as well that: To whom much is given MUCH IS REQUIRED.
Now let me reveal the Scripture at hand:
Hebrews 2 King James Version
“1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; 3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”
NOW LET ME PRINT ALSO THE “AMPLIFIED VERSION [FOR COMPARISON AND UNDERSTANDING]:
Hebrews 2 Amplified Bible (AMP)
“1 Since all this is true, we ought to pay much closer attention than ever to the truths that we have heard, lest in any way we drift past [them] and slip away.
2 For if the message given through angels [the Law spoken by them to Moses] was authentic and proved sure, and every violation and disobedience received an appropriate (just and adequate) penalty, 3 How shall we escape [appropriate retribution] if we neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation [as is now offered to us, letting it drift past us forever]? For it was declared at first by the Lord [Himself], and it was confirmed to us and proved to be real and genuine by those who personally heard [Him speak].
4 [ Besides this evidence] it was also established and plainly endorsed by God, Who showed His approval of it by signs and wonders and various miraculous manifestations of [His] power and by imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit [to the believers] according to His own will.”
In order to fully understand let me go to the Webster Dictionary to discover the meaning of the word ‘RECOMPENSE’.
RECOMPENSE: To give something (such as money) to (someone) as a reward or as a payment for loss or suffering
1a: to give something to by way of compensation (as for a service rendered or damage incurred), 1b: to pay for, 2: to return in kind : requite
Examples of RECOMPENSE
1) the cash-strapped museum can > recompense lecturers with only token honorariums
2) that company still needs to > recompense the work that the contractor finished last month
I believe you are now beginning to understand and hopefully comprehend, what it is I am exorting you to hear. I say, along with the writer of the Book of Hebrews:
“Since all this is true, we ought to pay much closer attention than ever to the truths that we have heard, lest in any way we drift past [them] and slip away.”
Today in the world, many are hearing from God, not just in the Written Word, but by actual Voice of the Holy Spirit from within as well as the Lord Himself. Then when the Lord does speak to any, IT IS OF GREAT CONSEQUENCE AND CONCERN that all OBEY that voice of instruction. Many are only hearing, but are not following through with what they have been told.
Why are so many DOING NOTHING with what they KNOW? It seems that many today have the attitude: OH GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL THAT! BESIDES, WHAT CAN I DO? NOTHING I DO OR SAY WOULD MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE. Well in answer to that BAD ATTITUDE, let me say: they personally will never know the Power of God, because THEY DID NOT BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAID OR EVEN THAT HE WOULD DO IT. It is then not only a Lack of Faith but also AN INSULT TO GOD HIMSELF, because they doubt his ability to perform his Words Revealed.
I hear today so many VOICES OF THE WORLD who are speaking totally wrong things [things that are of the World View or mans opinions]. They are standing and speaking but the CHRISTIAN OR BELIEVERS IN CHRIST are NOT speaking themselves. ***(((Is this going to be overlooked by God?)))*** I SAY NOT… FOR SURE HE WILL HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE for their SLIPPING AWAY AND HIDING OF THE TRUTH KNOWN BY THEM. I believe there is a RELEVANT QUESTION TO BE ASKED HERE: WHERE ARE ALL THE “GREAT CHURCH LEADERS AND MEN OF GOD” in America in this hour when HOMOSEXUALS ARE SEEMINGLY TAKING OVER THE NATION? Where is the RISE TO SPEAK TRUTH and to BELIEVE GOD to reveal HIS PERSON AND OPINION IN THIS MATTER? Are they AFRAID and SLIP AWAY INTO THEIR SECRET PLACES? Why will they not SPEAK THE WORDS REVEALED TO THEM BY GOD? Why do they not Stand in ANSWER?
If only all those who have heard Words of Instruction would use and speak what they hear, would not the circumstances be different in today’s World? I believe so, because THEN GOD WOULD FOLLOW THOSE SPOKEN WORDS…..
“by signs and wonders and various miraculous manifestations of [His] power and by imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit [to the believers] according to His own will,” Hebrews 2:4.
Will the Lord LET YOU SLIP BY [you who know and do not SPEAK]? I THINK NOT. He will hold you accountable that day at the Bema seat where he will try your works to see the results. Men of Great Faith in God’s Word will ARISE AND SPEAK… TAKING THE PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING while all those cowards loose Rewards before all watching.
1 Corinthians 3:12-15
“12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

I have delivered this Exhortation Word in Obedience to my Lord. I pray that the Men of God who KNOW will STAND AND SPEAK and not let this time SLIP BY TO LOOSE THEIR REWARD.
