In the Time Before Jesus People Were Afraid of God's Voice

This week I’m talking about hearing the voice of God. Every believer must know and hear the voice of God to effectively walk out their calling in the body of Christ. In the times before Jesus, God the Father selected certain leaders to whom He would communicate His heart and will. For example, He called Moses from the desert to lead the Jewish people out of slavery. He spoke personally to Moses.

The Jewish people were afraid of God. In Ex. 20:18 the Word says, "When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance and said to Moses, ‘speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.’" The people wanted someone else to hear from God and pass the word on to them. They were intimidated by the Voice of God.

Tomorrow, I’ll reveal how this changed after Jesus arrived.
