Deuteronomy-0412-Lord-spoke-out-of-the-fire

 

Today, reply is on the divine use of human agents, sacred events, and anointed spokespersons to communicate with, and maintain ongoing relationships among created beings and living creatures. GOD, who has put forth existence, life, and the universe as a sphere that contains divine presence, is a spirit, and manifests through elements that, in sum, are ineffable, invisible, and unspeakable using language and utterance of the flesh. Sacred knowledge must address more than merely earthly or spiritual authority, majesty, and splendor; eternal eminence, exaltation, and perfection also must be acknowledged and articulated. In the same way those who entered into covenant with GOD through the appearance of Moses and Aaron as prophet and priest, followers of Jesus Christ are to receive apostles, evangelists, and teachers sent from GOD. A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality, who uses the ID “The Dajjal” (Level 4 with 3,020 points, a member since May 16, 2013), posted the following:

 

Isnt it strange that god communicated through books and prophets instead of direct communication?

Almost as if he doesnt exist and people serve as his interpreters to control everyone else.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. (Matthew 21: 33-44, King James Version, KJV)

The Dajjal”, in the same way Donald Trump as President of the United States addresses public statements to all Americans, yet, will not appear personally in the home of every voter, GOD will have rule throughout the universe, and will not appear in a material form to every individual. Communicating with GOD is not the same as communicating with ones next door neighbor. Among Christian believers, it is not strange or unrighteous that divine fullness (we also say, the Creator; the GODhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) uses specific sacred operations (e.g., Incarnation, prophecy, rebirth, resurrection, revelation, visitation), formal structure (division of labor, hierarchy, ranks), sanctified tools (e.g., praise, prayer, worship), and anointed spokespersons for communicating with, and maintaining relationships that are meaningful to created beings and living creatures.

More than simply the feelings, thoughts, and personhood of divinity must be expressed. The living also must apprehend awe (i.e., the awesomeness of GOD; the fear of the Lord); certainty; completeness; grace; immortality; immutability; incorruptibility; integrity; “oneness” without “sameness”; divine prerogative; purity; eternal purpose; and sovereign will. Through operations by the Holy Spirit sinners are enabled to receive a fresh endowment of the life essence (we also say, breath, spirit, word) that was imparted to mankind at Creation from the makeup of GOD. Inseparable aspects of divinity must be internalized within the living. Included are faith, forbearance, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

When GOD proclaimed and spoke the Ten Commandments directly to those who left Egypt with Moses that were seeking the benefits and protection of a covenant relationship with the GOD who had overthrown Pharaoh, the people became awestruck and terrified. Overwhelmed by what they heard with their ears and felt throughout their own bodies—the voice of GOD echoing and vibrating within their own person—they begged that GOD would remain silent; and agreed to accept the covenant where GOD would speak directly only to Moses, or send other prophets. Thus, the process of conveying covenant law now correctly is one that uses human consciousness and self-will along with mankind’s finite tools for communication to display, embody, and transmit the expressed will of GOD. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) Deuteronomy 4: 10-12, King James Version (KJV): 10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children. 11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness. 12 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.

(2,.) Deuteronomy 5: 23-28, KJV: 23 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders; 24 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth. 25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more, then we shall die. 26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? 27 Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it. 28 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.

(3.) Deuteronomy 18: 15-20, KJV: 15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; 16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not. 17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. 20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) Ephesians 4: 10-15, KJV: 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
