BETTER Than PENTECOST
by David Wilkerson

John the Baptist never made it to Pentecost! He saw none of the
cloven tongues of fire and did not hear the mighty rushing wind. He
did not see Jerusalem shaken and multitudes converted. But John
said his joy was fulfilled! He had heard something better than the
rushing wind, better than good reports, better than the sounds of
a joyful bride. He had heard the Savior´s voice.

"He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the
bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly
because of the bridegroom´s voice: this my joy therefore is
fulfilled" (John 3:29).

John tasted of the greatest joy a follower of Jesus can know. He
said, "I stood still and I heard Him talk to me. His voice made my
heart leap as He talked to me personally. I listened to my Lord.
And that´s my joy-just hearing His voice."

John could say, "I loved Him and worshiped at His feet. I told Him
how unworthy I was. My joy, however, is not in what I said to Him
but in what He said to me. I heard Him speak and I rejoice just in
the sound of that voice."

Some people teach that the Lord no longer speaks to men except
through the revealed Word. They cannot believe men can be
directed and blessed by hearing that still small voice today.

Jesus said, "My sheep know My voice; they hear when I call and
another they will not hear." But nowadays we are afraid of all the
abuses, even though they are not God´s fault. Every fake vision,
bogus prophecy, false leading is a direct result of man´s own
pride and self-will. Man abuses every gift of God. Nevertheless,
He still speaks directly to the hearts of those willing to hear.

"God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time
past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days
spoken unto us by his Son" (Hebrews 1:1-2).

"Wherefore, as the Holy Ghost saith, Today if ye will hear his
voice, harden not your hearts" (Hebrews 3:7).
