We talked in the last session of how the prophets were INSPIRED by God and given inspiration of the Holy One by the Spirit of the Almighty himself. Moses met God in the ‘fire’ and he declared that he was the I AM. We learned that Isaiah saw the Lord and then we saw that Amos declared that the Lord ‘stood beside a wall’ Then 1300  years later (after Isaiah that is) Paul declared that the Lord also appeared to him, he too called him Jesus. so we see the similarity of experience in both the lives of the prophet and the apostles generations apart. Think too of Jeremiahs experience (626 BC) he himself declared ‘his word was like ‘fire’ shut up in my bones’ (Jeremiah) Peter in AD 36 (410 years later) talked of the ‘tongues as of fire'(Acts 2;30) and then Paul who also had the same experience on the road to Damascus  also talked of tongues and its fire, as an experience with God.,and so the witness of prophets and prophets give unity of testimony to the one deity called Jesus, the Lord.Not only was revelation and truth imparted but also visions and dreams, the language of the the Old covenant (Old Testament) visions and reams came mainly to the prophets, now in the New Testament (Ad 30) we read that Gods spirit was to be poured out on ALL FLESH not just a select few holy men.16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: Acts 2;17-28  AD 30. Now ALL Men and Women could prophesy see visions and speak prophetically to their generation the Word of the Lord. Now ALL people could have this experience of knowing intimately the Divine. Now all could be holy men of God not just a select few.The importance of Knowing the one true God in an age of many god’sI say age of many gods yet this is not new, in Moses days there were gods of the heathen too not so much as god’s of men’s ideologies and trinities as we have today but gods of stone, wood and planets and nature. man still today even in Christianity worship false and fake deities and concepts of God that they think are biblical yet really are immoral and carnal. ‘ In Caanan he all but lost his personal identity he inherited cults quite alien from the spirit of his religion he was identified with local ells or Baals whose personality was a fluctuating quality till no one knew whether there was one Jehovah among a multitude of Baals or a multitude of Jehovah’s who were Baals.’ (CH DODD).WHY WE NEED THE BIBLEComing up next on Image Breakers  TBC
