Week 1, Day 2

The Precious Word of God, Message One
The Bible—God’s Speaking
Day 2

A. Our God is a speaking God—Matt. 22:31

Heb. 1:1–2   God, having spoken of old in many portions and in many ways to the fathers in the prophets, 2 Has at the last of these days spoken to us in the Son, whom He appointed Heir of all things, through whom also He made the universe.

B. The source of all the speaking in the Bible is God—Exo. 24:4a; 2 Sam. 23:1–3 cf. 1 Cor. 10:4; Jer. 1:7; Ezek. 1:3; John 14:24; 1 Cor. 2:13

2 Pet. 1:20–21   Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of one’s own interpretation; For no prophecy was ever borne by the will of man, but men spoke from God while being borne by the Holy Spirit.

C. Those who are of God hear God’s speaking—John 10:27

John 8:47   He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.

D. We need to hear God’s speaking every day—Zech. 7:7a

Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.

Later, listen to the following podcast sometime during the day. Use the first player if possible (you may need to click twice–click on it, then click Play). Use the second player if the first one does not work.
