10:27-29 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, &c. - Our Lord still alludes to the discourse he had before this festival. As if he had said, My sheep are they who, Hear my voice by faith; Are known (that is, approved) by me, as loving me; and Follow me, keep my commandments, with a believing, loving heart. And to those who, Truly believe (observe three promises annexed to three conditions) I give eternal life. He does not say, I will, but I give. For he that believeth hath everlasting life. Those whom, I know truly to love me, shall never perish, provided they abide in my love. Those who follow me, neither men nor devils can pluck out of my hand. My Father who hath, by an unchangeable decree, given me all that believe, love, and obey, is greater than all in heaven or earth, and none is able to pluck them out of his hand.

John 10:27......God identify his own through their obedience, you should not accept any other voice except your father's because God honors His word. When you hear the voice of the LORD, you can not loose direction and all will be well with you with your family and friends. Hearkening to obey fully the voice of God attract favor that brings victory. When you hear the voice of God and obey you are in fellowship with God and goodness and mercy is all around you.
