The Voice of The Spirit



“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son” (Hebrews 1:1, 2). This biblical declaration introduces us to the marvelous world of divine communication; a communication that is simple and complex; well known and mysterious; divine and human. The purpose of this book is to analyze that which we can understand with our human finite minds about how God speaks to humanity. VOTS 8.1

The starting point for our study is a firm belief in the existence of God, a personal God who speaks and communicates, and who is interested in intervening in human affairs— “Because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists” (Hebrews 11:6). This simple concept, developed within the context of a definition of faith, establishes the basic way in which the believer approaches the theme of divine communication: “God exists. He is a personal Being and wishes to have communication with me.” This starting point may seem too simple, even naive. The secular viewpoint that affects the world in general may also affect the Christian who struggles to maintain his beliefs in the midst of an incredulous world. VOTS 8.2
