Numbers 1-3 God spoke in Genesis to create, and it was so. God spoke in Exodus to reveal His power to gain release for the children of Israel from bondage. In Leviticus, God spoke the Ten Commandments and the Law. Finally, God spoke orderly instructions regarding the tribal locations and the placement of the Tabernacle. All of these illustrate how God is a God of order, not confusion. [1Cor 14:40] Lastly, in Revelation, God spoke to the churches and ended each with these words: “he who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says…” [Rev 2:7]
God continues to speak today through the inspired word so that we might be a righteous and holy people. “Men were moved by the Holy Spirit to speak the words of God.” [2Pet. 1:21]
Today, we are to be the living stones building up the temple of God. [1Peter 2:5]
God has spoken; are we listening? Are we a righteous people?
