That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

The Voice of God

Ever wondered what the voice of God must sound like?

We speak to Him through our prayers and He speaks to us through His Word, the Holy Bible. But think about this; that must have been something for Adam and Eve to hear God's voice. And what about Moses, and the Israelites, when they heard the voice of God out of the midst of the fire. Amazing!!!

Woah, I can only wonder and try to imagine what it must sound like. To further this thought, here are a few verses that the Bible tells us about the voice of our Heavenly Father:

Deu 5:22 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more.

Job 37:2-5 Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth. He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard. God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.

Job 40:9 Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?

Psa 29:3-9 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire. The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

Isa 30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard.

Joe 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake.

Rev 10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

I will stop here, though there are many more verses. I'm in awe, I love this. Aren't you glad you have hearkened to such a voice!!!

    Powerful, like none other, yet still capable of speaking in a still, small voice. Someday we're going to hear it, and we're going to see His face. That's going to be a wonderful day!

    When I went to my parents' Charismatic church when I was younger, there was a tremendous pressure to hear God speaking all the time. If you did not hear God's voice in your mind every day, it was assumed that there was something seriously wrong with your spiritual life.

    As I result, I had to try to imagine God speaking to me as often as possible to convince myself I was alright.

    It was very silly.

    The pastor at the church I go to now doesn't think that God speaks audibly to people in our time. Is the balance somewhere between the two positions?

    I think your pastor may be right.

    The Bible nowhere indicates that most believers can expect to here God audibly, otherwise there would be no need for prophets.

    I do not think there are prophets anymore as we have the completed Scriptures.

    I'm so anxious to meeting our Saviour, yet, not so. It's going to be terrifying sight standing before a Holy and Powerful God.

    Matthew, that is most silly, but also false teaching that can hinder a person't walk with the Lord. I'm glad you came out of that.

    I agree with you. God does not speak audibly to His people anymore. Like you said, we have the completed scriptures and we just await their fulfilling.

    can you spot a rapture in the Job 37 passage you quoted?

    ...and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.

    AMEN!!!!!

    wow, so it will sound like a powerful roar and a powerful thunder....this is interesting.

    Rev, the rapture is a mystery connected with the Church. It was unknown in the Old Testament.

    God Bless

    WHOAH... that will be... wow, I can't even begin to imagine. It was enough to knock Paul senseless and blind on the road to Damascus and calm a storm. WOW.

    Let's not forget that it also spoke the world into being!

    Matthew,
    It was hidden allright in the verse quoted from Job, don't you agree.

    I think that it is pretty doubtful.

    The rapture of the CHURCH was a mystery (1 corinthians 15, 1 Thessalonians 4). Not of tribulation saints (Job 37, Isaiah 26, Matthew 24)

    2 raptures yet to come, brother.

    Carey, it will be amazing.

    Angie, good point, the voice of God is powerful enough that it created the world. Incredible.

    ok, rev., so this passage in Job refers to the tribulation saints. Got it!!

    Matthew, we don't have the same beliefs on the rapture of the Church, since you are a post-trib.

    I really appreciate everybody's comments!!!

    I cannot see 2 Raptures. That really does not make much Dispensational sense.

    The rapture is a truth of special concern for the Church because of our heavenly position. Those of Israel and the nations who are not converted before the rapture have their position of blessing on earth. Even if the rapture was Pre-Tribulational, it would make no sense for those particpating in God's earthly programme to be raptured.

    It will be interesting to see the prophecies unfold.

    actually there are three. One is past. That's when Jesus led captivity captive out of Abraham's bosom which is in the bottom of the earth.

    The Bible has "come up hither" three times. The first resurrection has three phases, just like a harvest. Those folks that were raptured with Jesus were the first-fruits. The church is the main harvest and the tribulation saints are the gleanings.

    Have been working on a complete post on this subject for 2 years. There's that much to include.
    But first am trying to post an audio-file by James Modlish that lays the ground.

    God bless you

    Thanks Rev., I fully agree and I am looking forward to reading your post on this matter.

    P.S. Modlish is coming to our church sometime in September!
