I had posted two lessons I wrote for children earlier and then just forgot to post the rest, so here is lesson three.
Lesson 3: Before the Bible was written, God spoke to His people in many different ways.
References: Genesis 3:8, Genesis 35:9-13, Genesis 46:2, Exodus 3:2-4, Genesis 6:2, Acts 3:18-21, Hebrews 1:1, I Kings 19:11-13
God speaks to us most clearly through His Word, the Bible. But there was a time before the Bible was written down and God chose to speak to His people differently than just through His written words. Because He loved His people, He wanted to protect them and provide for them, so He told the people how they should live and what they should do. It was still God communicating (talking) with those whom He loved. People actually got to hear God’s voice! I bet that was amazing and scary. To hear the voice of God!
God spoke to some people directly, in a voice they could here. In the
God was powerful enough to make the storm and to speak through it, but He chose to speak in a whisper to Elijah. He still speaks to us today, though most of us do not hear His voice like they did in the past, we have His Word- the Bible. God is still the same as He was back then; He just speaks to us differently. We are very fortunate (blessed) to have God’s word so we can always hear from God and know Him.
