Lesson 1

Hearing from the Lord is one of the most important things that a child of God must have in their life.

To know how God speaks to man, the laws that were given to Moses, also speaking through Jesus Christ while he ministered to the people, and now through the Holy Ghost is critical to our spiritual life and growth in the Lord.

These conduits through which God made known His will to men are evidenced in the accounts given in scripture. Example: Moses hears the voice of God in the burning bush (Ex 3). Moses is told to go up Mount Sinai and receives the Tablets of Stone (Ex 19,20).

(Note) The Lord does not always speak out of burning bushes!

He spoke to Joshua in the form of a soldier with his sword drawn Captain of the Host of the Lord. Joshua answered: What saith my Lord unto His servant? Joshua 5:13

V     Hebrews 1:1-2


The Lord is speaking to you today through his Word.

What is the Word of God?

It is everlasting

V     John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

V     Psalms 119:89-90 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. (the testimony of the eternal Word it the earth abiding)

V     Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

V     1 Peter 1:24-25 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

It is Christ, the Messiah

V     John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

V     1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

V     1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

V     Revelation 19:11-13 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.


Read Proverbs 8:22-30.

Do you believe this is speaking of the Word if so Why?
