“Do you hear me?” The parent shares important information with their child or teenager; they expect a positive response. “Do you hear me” is not a parental hearing test; the parent is questioning their comprehension. In reality, the question is whether the child will hear and heed the detailed instructions.
“Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near (Revelation 1:3 NAS).” We have an urgent need to hear from the Lord, in preparation of his imminent return. In response, He has every right to except we will heed the divine message!
