Listening to Jesus on Easter Sunday

The Resurrection means
That Jesus can be
More than heard about.
He can be heard!

Waking up Easter morning 2021, I sensed Jesus saying: “Listen, Steve. Hear My voice speaking within you with words, images, and impressions.” So I did. This is what came to me.

“If death couldn’t keep Me down, nothing else can either!”

“Much that you listen to will harm you, but listen to Me and you will heal from within.”

“Read the Scriptures with an open heart and I will make the words burn within you as you do.”

“I hear your monologue, but we won’t have dialogue until you begin to regularly listen to Me.”

“Since I’m alive, I can speak. If you’re alive, you can hear Me.”

“There’s no reason to blindly assume My empty tomb. Open you’re heart and I will show you that I’m alive.”

“On Easter you hear people say that I’m alive. Now hear it from Me, for yourself.”

“Since I’m not stuck in a Jerusalem tomb, we can hang out together. Let’s meetup.”

“My sheep hear My voice.” (I’ve read that somewhere, have you?)

“You’ve heard that I said: ‘Love your enemies. Bless those curse you.’ How blessed you will be if you do it.”

“Many Christians act like they can’t hear me for themselves, and rely on someone else to tell them what I said.”

“If you don’t believe I am speaking today, you’ll have a difficult time recognizing My voice.”

“Follow Me the way children play follow the leader.”

(An observation: When it comes to listening to the living Jesus, too many people have heard immunity!)

I heard about Jesus.
Then one day
I heard Him
And He herded me
Into His presence.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
