The Dead Can Hear

John 5:28-29  “Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice…”

I know that the Lord is speaking about the end times here–more specifically, the resurrection.

But there is something else that I see that relates to our current hour.

There is another strong move of the Spirit happening around the globe, and it is exciting to see and be a part of.

There are many who are dead who are hearing the voice of the Lord.

There are those who are dead in their trespasses and sins who are hearing His voice calling them to life.

There are those who are dead because of the lack of life within their church community. They have not heard the voice of the Lord for a long time–have actually experienced the famine of Amos 8:11. But now His voice is calling to them to come out of their tomb.

Either condition equates with being “in the tombs.”

His voice is going out and many are hearing.

Thanks be to God who gives the hearing ear, I am one of those!!
