“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. My Father, which gave them Me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10: 27-29).
“Hear My voice” means to intuitively perceive the Truth, and “follow Me” means to act accordingly, to produce works, to completely integrate one’s life with Truth. Only through fulfilling this strict condition does a man become completely new, and only when he becomes new (“born again”) does he automatically inherit eternal life.
If we place emphasis on the word “follow”, what was intended becomes clear. Follow infers motion, movement, effort, exertion, commitment, devotion, steadfastness, alertness, and unconditional fulfillment. Follow means to “pursue” to “chase after” a goal. The goal is not given to the pursuer, but the pursuer must himself reach it by unflagging effort! In the parable of the prodigal son, the Father’s Kingdom did not move one hairs breadth closer, but the son himself had to travel along the path (following Truth) to reach the goal.
Only when a human completely transforms itself and becomes new through tireless effort and devoted striving does the heat from this movement causes it to come aglow, and thus vibrate at a high spiritual frequency of purity. Now, since everything is energy, this high frequency causes it to make an automatic connection with the Energy in the vicinity of God the Father. Since the Godhead is Eternal, this pure connection automatically grants an eternal existence to the human spirit. This is the Law of Energy.
“No one shall snatch them from Me” refers to the unbreakable nature of the strongest connection that grants eternal life when it is pure and strong. “No man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand”, for the strongest power is the Love of God, and he who swings in it is enveloped by the Force that is stronger than anything else. But should the striving of the human spirit diminish through indolence, then the connection is weakened. This weakened connection through the misuse of its volition causes it to swing in a lower frequency that makes its energy and the Pure Power of God dissonant. In this situation, the human spirit will be snatched away through its own weak striving and be cast out, i.e. the gate of eternal life will be closed to it, since its own volition is closed to purity. This is the automatic working of the Law of Energy. Consequently, the human spirit cannot be snatched away when it reaches the Kingdom of God. But so long as it is still journeying in these Worlds of Matter for development, it can still be snatched away through the possibility of the deviation of its own volition.
It is by doing, by acting, by fully swinging with Truth and completely transforming ourselves inwardly that a human spirit inherits the possibility of eternity. Believing alone is like a person convinced of the directions given by the map. It serves him no good and does not bring him closer to the goal unless he follows the directions to the intended destination. Only by following, i.e. doing and acting, will he reach the goal…never before. In the same way, man must follow Truth in order to inherit eternal life. Believing alone will not grant it to him.
