Hearing the Voice in the Holy Scriptures

Responding to the Grand Instructor

In the Holy Scriptures God gave His Words and told people how to behave and how to follow His instructions and how to fulfil His Will. So they should know that God detest those who worship false gods. Jehovah certainly made the dignity of His voice to be heard and made the descending of His Arm to be seen, in the raging of anger and the flame of a devouring fire and cloudburst and rainstorm and hailstones. For because of the voice of Jehovah it was not only Assyria that was struck with terror. God will strike everything what He wants even with a staff. Those responding to the voice of the Grand Instructor will scatter their graven images, viewing them as something disgusting.

And you shall defile the covering of your graven images of silver, and the plating of your moulded images of gold. You shall throw them away as a menstrual cloth and say to them, “Be gone!” (Isaiah 30:22 The Scriptures 1998+)

30 And יהוה {Jehovah} shall cause His excellent voice to be heard, and show the coming down of His arm, with raging wrath and the flame of a consuming fire, with scattering, downpour and hailstones. 31 For through the voice of יהוה {Jehovah} Ashshur is broken down, with a rod He smites. 32 And every passage of the ordained staff which יהוה {Jehovah} lays on him, shall be with tambourines and lyres, when He shall fight with it, battling with a brandishing arm. (Isaiah 30:30-32 The Scriptures 1998+)

The man of God presented to the people the Words God dictated them. Those who heard the prophets could either ignore them or be willing to take in life’s water of truth; the Word of God could offer them the refuge, the security and the blessings. The Most High provided the means that people could find the way to gain the greatest benefit from the inspired Scriptures. The way to find salvation to everlasting life is to study those Scriptures and live by them every day of our lives. We must constantly meditate on God’s Word, with the same prayerful attitude of appreciation as expressed by the psalmist:

11 I remember the deeds of Yah, For I remember Your wonders of old. 12 And I shall meditate on all Your work, And talk of Your deeds. 13 Your way, O Elohim, is in Set-apartness {1}; Who is a great Ěl like Elohim? {Footnote: 1Isa. 35:8}. 14 You are the Ěl who does wonders; You have made known Your strength among the peoples. 15 By Your arm You have redeemed Your people, The sons of Ya’aqob and Yosĕph. Selah. (Psalms 77:11-15 The Scriptures 1998+)

Foundation for meditation and transformation

Meditating on Jehovah’s ‘marvellous doing and activity’ will stir us also to be active in fine works, with everlasting life in view.

The Scriptures should be the very foundation of our daily living because it is God’s Word that can reach us every day. Let us heed the words of Paul who also speaks about the Breath of God, His Words, and tells young Timothy to continue in the things that he had learned and were persuaded to believe, always looking at the intimate connection between God and His written revelation and holding fast to those good things of God.

14 But you, stay in what you have learned and trusted, having known from whom you have learned, 15 and that from a babe you have known the Set-apart Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for deliverance through belief in Messiah יהושע {Jeshua}. 16 All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of Elohim might be fitted, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:14-17 The Scriptures 1998+)

The Scriptures
The Scriptures (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“What more do we want than wisdom in relation to this matter? If the sacred Scriptures are able to make us wise, we need no other instrumentality. The Holy Spirit by the word, without infusing a single idea into it more than it actually and ordinarily contains, and without any collateral influence, teaches us all wisdom and knowledge that is necessary… Why, then, my friends, can we not be content with the means within the grasp of everyone who owns the volume of inspiration? If the ecclesiastical world were content to learn the truth from ‘the Bible alone’, and it honestly desired to obey the Messiah, there would soon be an end to Presbyterian and every other ism, by which ‘Christendom’ as it is called, or ‘anti-Christendom’, as it should be termed, has been for ages desolated” (JT, Apostasy Unveiled).

All of The Scriptures is divinely inspired, not given for our information, but for our transformation.

19 And we have the prophetic word made more certain, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture came to be of one’s own interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the desire of man, but men of Elohim spoke, being moved by the Set-apart Spirit. (2 Peter 1:19-21 The Scriptures 1998+)

… remember 2 the words previously spoken by the set-apart prophets, and of the command of the Master and Saviour, spoken by your emissaries, (2 Peter 3:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

  • Why did God organize the Israelites? (peaceandbeauty.wordpress.com)
    God organized descendants of the patriarch Abraham into a nation and gave them a body of laws. He called the nation Israel and made it the custodian of true worship and of his Word, the Holy Scriptures.

    There is incredible power in praying God’s Word. It’s the perfect offensive weapon when we face seemingly insurmountable challenges – and an increasingly dangerous and immoral culture.

    Soon in the time of the created universe people got to understand they had to call upon God. Men began to call upon the name of the Most High Elohim יהוה Jehovah. More than once things went wrong
  • Trusting, Faith, calling and Ascribing to Jehovah #1 Kings Faith (christadelphians.wordpress.com)
    The apostle Peter may have had doubts in what his master Jesus asked him. At the time when the district ruler Herod heard the reports of Jesus and had arrested John the Baptist, Peter was perhaps not yet sure about the intimate relation Jesus had with his Father, the Most High God.
    +
    God was totally in Jesus his heart and we see that when God’s Word had entered David and Jesus their life, that divine Word became also part of their very being and giving them the desire to know what God really wanted from them. Jesus was fully aware that it was his Father who taught him how to live to please God, because Jehovah was his and David‘s God, who led him by His blessed Spirit into cleared and level pastureland.
