Study on the Bible, Part 16
Remember Hebrews 1:1. In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets
They (the prophets) were Gods mouthpieces; they were the instruments though which He did speak to Israel, and to us today. Again we must note that it is God speaking through them; not they speaking through God. It was not a two-way street; revelation went from God to the prophets, and through the prophets to us. 1
Here are some examples: Isaiah, prior to giving Gods words, would say, The Lord said to me The Lord spoke to me again (Isaiah 8:1, 5).
David speaks prophetically, when his last words are recorded. The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me; his word was on my tongue. The God of Israel spoke; the Rock of Israel said to me (2 Samuel 23:2-3).
My last example is Jeremiah. This is the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the nations (Jeremiah 46:1).
