Powerful & Majestic Voice
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
For the bad we do, take responsibility; for the good we achieve, thank ALMIGHTY GOD.  When you act harshly, weep; but when you have success, ascribe it to the LORD GOD OF HEAVEN.  That is how we should live! 

 

POWERFUL & MAJESTIC VOICE      
"The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders; YEHOWAH is over many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic." [Psalms (Tehillym) 29. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

This Psalm repeats the phrase, "The voice of God" seven times and is especially centered on the awful judgment of the Great Flood in the days of Noah.   It occurs many other times in the OLD COVENANT as well, with a wide variety of applications and circumstances. 

 

The first time "voice" occurs in HOLY SCRIPTURE is in the Garden of Eden immediately after man brought sin into the world.  "And they heard the voice of YEHOWAH ELOHIYM walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of YEHOWAH ELOHIYM among the trees of the garden. Then YEHOWAH ELOHIYM called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?" So he said "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid." [Genesis (Berepooh) 3. 8 – 10 Tanakh, Torah] This specifically reveals that it is GOD’S Voice — not man’s — which we must hear and obey if we seek guidance for life. 

 

Mankind is lost and separated from the HOLY GOD, but HE continually calls to each of us, just as he did to Adam, and we desperately need to hear HIS VOICE if we are to live eternally and our lives be fulfilled and spiritually fruitful. 

 

In contrast to this scene of alienation (separation), the final occurrence of a "voice" is the wonderful scene of reconciliation (bringing together) when the ALMIGHTY again speaks to lost mankind, this time in glorious restoration (renewal) of that broken fellowship.  "Then I, John, saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from GOD, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud VOICE from heaven saying, "Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and HE will dwell with them, and they shall be HIS people. GOD HIMSELF will be with them and be their GOD. And GOD will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." [Revelation 21. 2 - 4] 

 

To hear the Voice of ALMIGHTY GOD then, however, we must first hear HIS voice now, through HIS WORD.  MESSIAH Y’SHUA said — "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears MY WORD and believes in Him who sent ME has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of GOD; and those who hear will live." [John 5. 24 - 25]   The HEAVENLY FATHER granted JESUS full authority to execute judgment because HE is the Son of Man. 

 

"Follow none but the Lord your God and revere none but Him, keep His commandments and obey His voice; worship none but Him and hold fast to HIM...When you are distressed and all these things come upon you in the latter days, return to the Lord your God and obey His voice. For the Lord your God is a merciful God, He will not forsake you nor will HE let you perish; HE will not forget the covenant which HE made on oath with your fathers." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 13. 4 – 5 & 4. 30 – 31 Tanakh, Torah] 

 

Quoting the MASTER, these are such encouraging words of promise:  "Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your GOD. I will strengthen you, Yes! I will help you, I will uphold you with MY righteous right hand." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 41. 10]  "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all." [Psalms/Tehillym 34. 19]  "The Lord your GOD in the midst, the MIGHTY ONE, will save; HE will rejoice over you with gladness, HE will quiet you with HIS love, HE will rejoice over you with singing." [Zephaniah/Tsefanyah 3. 17] 

 

It is such a gift and a privilege to serve the ONE who faithfully continues to call. Please listen to that voice and be quick to answer and obey. 

 

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
As we bid farewell to Sabbath, our prayer for each of you is to be strong and of good courage; be bold as you proclaim the GOOD NEWS of Salvation to all.  In this dark world, may your life serve as an everlasting reminder that we are to be holy and celebrate GOD’S miracles of victory, provision, dedication, and light.
Blessed are YOU, O GOD, our salvation and our help. Everything that lives shall give thanks to YOU forever and shall praise YOUR NAME in truth. YOUR NAME is ALL-GOOD, and unto WHOM it is becoming to give thanks. So we thank YOU, Great & MIGHTY GOD for YOUR WRITTEN WORD, it is our exceedingly great joy and our life-giving crown. Keep us ever grateful and grant us YOUR perfect peace. Amen
Go with GOD! The LORD bless and keep you throughout the coming days! 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
