|NASB||Deuteronomy 4:1 "Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I am teaching you to perform, so that you may live and go in and take possession of the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you.|
|Deuteronomy 4:1 "Now, O Israel, listen and pay attention to the statutes and the judgments (God's legal decisions) which I am teaching you to do, so that you may live and go in and take possession of the land which the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you.|
|Bible Question: In the old testament, God actually appeared spoke with Adam, Moses, Abraham, Jacob, etc,. How come there isn't a place in the New Testament where God actually appears and speaks with Jesus, His Son? Before Jesus is crucified we see Him praying to the Lord at Gethsemane. Did Adam, Moses and Abraham pray as well? Or could they simply speak with God? It just seems odd that the Son of God prays to communicate with His Father, where Adam, Moses and Abraham saw Him face to face.|
Bible Answer: Deuteronomy 4:12 2 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
Actually no man has seen the literal face of God EXCEPT for Jesus.
God showed only similitudes to Moses and others even as he stated here in Deut 4
And the reason he stated there also, so they would not create vain images and call it God.
God did speak in a Voice from Heaven and also manifestations with Christ His Only Begotten SOn..
Matthew 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
But only of Jesus is it said...
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him].
Here is one more thought along this topic.
Some people not thinking it through wonder why God does not choose to speak audibly to all saints and they wish He would. But Our God has provided something better than that.
God will live on the inside of the believer and speak to him even in his thoughts and spirit. So isn't better to carry on your conversations with God in private rather than Have God speaking to you for the whole world to hear? I mean isn't it better to have God on the inside so that you may constantly commune with not matter where you are than to have to call him up on the phone or meet him at Starbucks for a discussion? God is Great and Greatly to be Praised.
