Manifestations speak by God’s will

Manifestations speak by God’s will.


217. Manifestations speak by Gods will. All the religions of God tell us that Gods manifestations don’t speak of their own will, but they speak what God tells them to say: God speaks to mankind through the mouths of the prophets. Moses indicated this in Exodus, Jewish symbols star-8pix Judaism: Exodus 4:11 “And The LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I The LORD?Exodus 4:12 “Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.” Exodus 4:15 “And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.” God was with the mouth of Moses while he was on this earth. Moses didn’t speak for himself but spoke that which God told him to speak. Numbers 16:28 “And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that The LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind.” Moses also prophesied that God would raise up a prophet like Moses and God would put the words into his mouth as well. Deuteronomy 18:18 “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.” We now know that prophet to be Jesus Christ who spoke by Gods command. the cross-5pix Christianity: John 8:26 “I have many things to say and to judge of you: but He that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of Him.” John 8:27 “They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.” John 8:28 “Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.” John 8:29 “And He that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please Him.” Jesus tells us he does the things that please the Father and he speaks what the Father commands: John 12:49 “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”

Jesus, like Moses before him, also prophesied that the next prophet to come after him, the spirit of truth, in this case, will not speak of himself but will speak the things God tells him to speak. the cross-5pix Christianity: John 16:13 “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but what-so-ever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

The Bab (the gate) and Bahá’u’lláh (The Glory of God) came as prophesied by Christ and he did not speak of himself, but he spoke by Gods command that which God wanted said.
