The Voice of God-Part 6

Posted By on Wednesday, March 09, 2016

In addition to that, there is revelation.  Now that brings us back to verse 7.  “Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the voice of the Lord yet revealed unto him.”  Revelation is a matter of disclosure, of making apparent that which is hidden or unknown, and gradually the Spirit of God will enlighten our spirits as we commune with Him and cause us to learn the recognition of His voice.

You have heard me mention a number of things, particularly how the Lord has awakened me many times during the night. (This may be my 4th visit to Auckland.)  I will take a little more time with this.
We have a secret in Isaiah 50:4.  I am going to insert this because it is relevant here.  The prophet Isaiah is here speaking prophetically as though Jesus were the speaker.  Bear this in mind.  Isaiah is speaking as though Jesus were speaking of Himself.
“The Lord God has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary; He wakens morning by morning, He wakens my ear to hear as the learned.”  Isaiah 50:4
I will give you the idea from the Revised Version: “The Lord God has given me the tongue of them that are taught, that I should know how to sustain with a word him that is weary.”  Here is a ministry for all of us. There are so many people in such a great need of a kind word spoken at the proper time, especially a word that has come from God.
I was sitting one year in my office in the school studying.  I felt impressed to go and visit the office of another teacher.  I was not in the habit of doing a lot of visiting in the school.  I am the kind of fellow that rather stays by himself.  I am the loner type.  I keep to myself, but I had this impression.

So I went over to this teacher’s room.  I had no special reason.  I said, “Brother, I just had it on my heart to pay you a little visit.”  And that man broke down in heavy sobbing.  That man just sobbed and sobbed, and I sat there waiting for him to get finished.  I said, “What is the trouble?” He mentioned his problem and the Lord gave me a few words, a very few words to say to him.  Later on, he told in chapel to the students how Brother Beuttler walked in just at the right time and brought him the right words in his deep distress.  Well those things come from the Lord.
