Listening to & Heeding God's Voice
This Mitzvah is a companion to (and continuation of) the one where we are commanded to Obey God's Commandments - and yet, the emphasis here is different, in that this Mitzvah covers the way we obey the Commandments in the Bible through listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
It is clear to me that "God's voice" is and always has been the voice of the Holy Spirit. Indeed, God speaks through His written commandments, but it is the Holy Spirit that gives the commandments voice for application in our individual lives and circumstances.
I discuss whether listening to God's voice is different today it what it was in the Bible and how it affects the way we obey His commands.
