Trusting, Faith, Calling and Ascribing to Jehovah #3 voice of God

Speaking and bringing unto being

The “I Am who I am” or the “I am that I am”, at the beginning of the universe let His voice come over everything, so that it came into being.

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. And the earth came to be {1} formless and empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim was moving on the face of the waters. {Footnote: 1Or the earth became}. And Elohim said, “Let light come to be,” and light came to be. (Genesis 1:1-3 The Scriptures 1998+)

The Creator of everything said each time that it had to come to be and it became. Over which His breath came He also gave a name. Elohim called the light ‘day’ and the darkness He called ‘night.’ He called the expanse ‘heavens.’ Elohim called the dry land ‘earth,’ and the collection of the waters He called ‘seas.’ He soon came to give with His voice blessing over the all earth.

11 And Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the plant that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth.” And it came to be so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the plant that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:11-12 The Scriptures 1998+)

20 And Elohim said, “Let the waters teem with shoals of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth on the face of the expanse of the heavens.” 21 And Elohim created great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters teemed, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. 22 And Elohim saw that it was good. And Elohim blessed them, saying, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the fifth day. (Genesis 1:20-23 The Scriptures 1998+)

A voice calling in the Garden

The things which came into existence by the Voice of God pleased Him. He always looked at what came into being and saw that it was good. So God decided to make human beings; which would be like Him and resemble Him, what does not mean they would become like Him. Adam, Eve, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Jesus, were all made in the image of that One and Only One God. They received power over the fish, the birds, and all animals, domestic and wild, large and small. Male and female were created and blessed. To those first human beings God said to have many children, so that their descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. It was the Creator God who put those human creatures in charge of the earth, the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals. From the beginning the Elohim God also provided all kinds of grain and all kinds of fruit for them to eat.

25 And Elohim made the beast of the earth according to its kind, livestock according to its kind, and all that creep on the earth according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good. 26 And Elohim said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the livestock, and over all the earth and over all the creeping creatures that creep on the earth.” 27 And Elohim created the man in His image, in the image of Elohim He created him – male and female He created them. 28 And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said to them, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over all creatures moving on the earth.” 29 And Elohim said, “See, I have given you every plant that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed, to you it is for food. (Genesis 1:25-29 The Scriptures 1998+)

Adam and Eve heard the Voice of Jehovah God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. In the beginning it looked like the Voice of God was soft and caring, creating all goodness. But after the wrong going by Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Jehovah God in the middle of the trees of the garden (Genesis 3:8), more than once God had to let His Voice be like thunder.

יהוה {Jehovah} thundered from the heavens, And the Most High sent forth His voice. (2 Samuel 22:14 The Scriptures 1998+)

2 Listen, listen to the trembling of His voice, and the sound that comes from His mouth. 3 He lets it loose under all the heavens, and His lightning to the ends of the earth. 4 After it a voice roars. He thunders with the voice of His excellency, and He does not hold them back when His voice is heard. 5 Ěl thunders wondrously with His voice; doing great deeds, which we do not understand. 6 For He says to the snow, ‘Be on the earth,’ also to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. 7 He seals up the hand of every man, for all men to know His work. (Job 37:2-7 The Scriptures 1998+)

Prophets hearing the Voice

Many prophets heard the voice of God, some, like Ezekiel as the sound of wings, like the sound of roaring water and wrote down what the voice of the Almighty dictated to them. God’s glory rose above the cherubs and filled God’s House (the temple) with the brilliance of the Creator’s glory. The sound of the wings of the cherubim, reminiscent of the voice of the Sovereign God when he speaks, could be heard as far as the outer court of the temple.

4 And the esteem of יהוה {Jehovah} went up from the keruḇ, over the threshold of the House. And the House was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the esteem of יהוה {Jehovah}. 5 And the sound of the wings of the keruḇim was heard in the outer court, like the voice of Ěl Shaddai when He speaks. (Ezekiel 10:4-5 The Scriptures 1998+)

And see, the esteem of the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl came from the way of the east. And His voice was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone from His esteem. And His voice was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone from His esteem. (Ezekiel 43:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

It was this Voice of God that could lift up the prophets and give them inspiration to write down that what God wanted them His people to know. By way of His Voice God gave His commandments and asked people to do certain things for Him.

And the Spirit took me up and brought me into the inner courtyard. And see, the esteem of יהוה filled the House. (Ezekiel 43:5 The Scriptures 1998+)

  1. The floodgates of heaven
    There is the fountain of the deep and the windows (floodgates) of heaven, both of which were outlets of the water that flooded the earth.

    just as the  water of the  Holy Spirit can be for judgment, a heightened, pointed  expression of the presence of God in wrath, it can also stand for a heightened experience of God in the supernatural blessing  and spiritual vitality.  While that of judgment brings death, the positive expression brings life.
  2. It’s Raining
    God is raining spiritual blessings upon his people. Although it’s raining naturally, I believe God has opened the windows of Heaven and is pouring out blessings in abundance on the saints of God today.

  • In What’s in a name? (quest4light.net) there is not made a difference in titles and in first and surnames, but according to us a beloved one we would prefer to talk to with his or her own name and not with a tittle. The I am that I am Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh אהיה אשר אהיה is too much an important figure we should all love and consider as our own Father that we would not speak to Him the Most High or Lord of the Lord of lords with a title like the distant  “Lord”. Other titles like Creator, or Most High would than be much better, but also not appropriate when we speak to Him. though when you speak about Him, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah, you could naturally use such titles as God or Allah. But remember always that God wanted His Name to be known all over the earth. (Read our articles about Gods Holy Name)
  • Also The Name of the True GOD (shanecloud.com) has an other look on the Most High Name which has always been and shall always be.
  • Genesis Expression seems to doubt that the Elohim is really a supernatural being as the God of gods in Adam, Eve, Where are you? (genesisexpressions.wordpress.com) because she uses the word “if”. The writer wonders why Elohim is asking Adam & Eve where they are?  forgetting that the All Knowing very well knew where the two human beings where. The Omniscient One did not lose them. He knew very well where they where, because nothing can be hidden for Him. God is everywhere, sees everything and knows every heart. So he could see Adam and eve, though they tried to hide for him, meaning that they did not believe any-more that God could see everything.
  • The Dominion Continues! (genesisexpressions.wordpress.com)
    Adam, being the first human created, does not have any one who has gone before him who could be an example or to teach him how to rule, or more precisely, to reign as a Vassal King.  Risky enterprise on Elohim’s part, I think!  Just handing over authority to a neophyte and walking away is tantamount to setting someone up for failure. But remembering Father God’s character as being based in love, somehow I am thinking that failure for Adam is not the plan.

  • God the Father made a bond-ship with His first son, giving him the trust and the believe that he could do it. Also when he and his wife proofed to have dishonoured Jehovah God, the Father showed His love by giving them a second chance a by giving humanity a solution to restoration, in Christ Jesus (Jeshua) in whom we can find the restorer of the peace. The relationship with the first man and woman (mannin) may have been broken and we also do have our faults and see many people and things go wrong, so we may cry, shout and sound the alarm like Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays! (burningfireshutinmybones.wordpress.com) writes. He   direct people to go direct toward Jesus, but forgets that we now can go direct to God. Jesus may and should be our help, because he is the only way to the restoration between the Most High Creator and man. But his ransom has bought us free and open the gates to go directly to Jehovah God.
  • The Secrets Of Psalm 91 (dianasymons.com)
    Psalm 91 is an extraordinary psalm. It is the promise that God will protect you from sickness and danger, no matter how many people standing right next to you fall. It is the promise that He will answer when you call. It is the promise of long life and salvation. But not for everyone.
