Coronavirus, Another Means of God Speaking to Humans #2

Updated on June 1, 2020

Studying the bible is always good. For years, I have been studying the bible and I found it wonderful

Earlier

In the first article I have introduced this topic and have started with a means of God interacting with the first man, Adam. I will continue with God's interaction with Adam in this article.

Poll 1: Distinctive:

Do you know the voice of God when you hear him?

See results

(b) Whose Voice?

The voice of the person they heard was Lord God.

Voice in Hebrew is “קל קול”, Romanized form is qôl qôl (pronounced as kole, kole) which means call loud, a sound, yell, cry out. God cries out to them. This they heard.

The word used for Lord here in Hebrew is “יהוה”, Romanized form is yehôvâh (pronounced as yeh-ho-vaw') which means self-Existent, Eternal, Jehovah. While the Hebrew word for God is “אלהים”, Romanized from is 'ĕlôhı̂ym (pronounced as el-o-heem') this word is used in the plural sense meaning “gods” and also used for magistrates, Almighty, Supreme God.

They were not hallucination, they knew what they heard, it was distinctive, unique and different.

(c) Venue of the Incident

So that we shall not be confused, so that we shall not allege neither infer nor ask question while reading this place that, “where did they hear this voice?”, Prophet Moses clearly stated the venue where the incident took place, where they heard the voice of the Supreme One. The place was the garden of Eden.

(d) Time of the Incident

The time when it happened was stated and it was during the “cool of the day”.

Hebrew word for day here is “יום”, Romanized form is yôm (pronounced as yome) which means hot, warm hours, literally sunrise to sunset or from one sunset to the next, evening.

We shall recall then that it has not been raining on the earth, and that day and night were referred to in the bible (Gen. 1:3ff)

Humanly speaking or viewing according to the climatic changes of the moment it may mean the evening time when the sun has set.

(e) What He Was Doing When He Called

He was said to be walking in the garden. This of course should exclude from the heart of anyone the thought of “thundering” being the voice heard and because thunder is associated with rain fall, thus, it couldn’t be “thundering” that they heard, neither winds blowing dry leaves around in the garden.

And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. (Gen 3:8)

(f) He (God) Called

We shall note that God called the man, Adam.

Hebrew word for call here is “קרא”, Romanized form is qârâ' (phonetic spelling is kaw-raw'). The word is said to come from the root word of accosting a person, and he mentioned the person by name. God in order words met with Adam as he used to do, as he had brought the woman unto him after forming her from what he took out of him and he called his name as the head of the house.

Married men who are Christians should know that when God wants to talk to the family he would call them, to address them, however, when they are too busy to hear his call he would call unto the woman, his wife, as he has done for Manoa’s wife in Judges 13.

I perceived that Manoa has been approached by God severally, but he was too busy to listen, too busy like Martha (Luk. 10:40), to hear what God has for him and his family. Because of his busy schedules, and for the fact that God loves them and had heard their cries, God approached the woman, his wife to tell him what he has for them.

God would never break his means of interacting and communing with people, for he is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

We should not be too busy for the Lord; we should always open our hearts to him to hear what he has for us.

(g) He Replied:

When God called the man, he also replied him, in the same garden. And told him what has happened to him because to him he was thinking may be he has not known.

Some people sometimes think God is like a man who is not seeing them at their secret places, how gravely mistaken those people are. We shouldn’t be like the first man and woman thinking God does not see us, he sees all about us.

As he called unto Adam those days, he is also calling you through Jesus Christ today to come to him, that he sees you in your inner place, he wants you to give yourself unto him, he wants you to embrace salvation and leave your sins.

This is the form of interaction with them those days, he was speaking with them physically. In the next article I shall be talking on other means of God dealing with man.
