Some may say God doesn’t or hasn’t….some say He isn’t even here and never has been. What do you say? What will you say?
On various occasions in the Old Testament, God chose to communicate audibly with individuals. God will always find a way to make contact with those who want to know him. Some of those occasions are listed here.
Adam and Eve
Confronted them about sin
Gave him instructions concerning the boat
Genesis 6:13-22; 7:1; 8:15-17
Told him to follow God’s leading and promised to bless him
Tested his obedience by commanding him to sacrifice his son
Permitted him to go to Egypt
Sent him to lead the people out of Egypt
Gave him the Ten Commandments
Moses, Aaron, Miriam
Pronounced judgment on their family conflict
Promised to be with him as he had been with Moses
Chose him to be his spokesman
1 Samuel 3:1-18
Sent him to the people with his message
Called him to be his prophet
Sent him to Israel to warn the nation of coming judgment
Let us not forget Job chapters 38, 39, 40 and 41.
Thank you Han and Jack Hibbs!

Israel announces new train station at Kotel to be named after Trump; Katz made decision “following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel”, Dec. 27, 2017.
Israel announced on Wednesday that a new train station at the Western Wall will be named after United States President Donald Trump.
Israel’s Transportation Minister Israel Katz made the announcement on Wednesday morning, noting President Trump’s “historic and brave decision”, stating “The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to name the train station that leads to it after President Trump following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.”
The new train line is just over 3 kilometers and will enter the Old City underground, where archeologists are guaranteed to make discoveries.
On December 6, 2017, President Trump announced the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state, announcing he would move the US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Trump stated on Israel’s right to Jerusalem as a soverign nation, stating during his announcement “Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace.”
This week, Guatemala announced it would return its embassy to Jerusalem, following the Czech Republic. Israel recently announced that is in talks with at least ten other countries, many with a “strong Christian base”, on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving their embassies.

Prime Minister Netanyahu rejects “theater of the absurd” resolution, thanking President Trump and Nikki Haley for their “stalwart defense of Israel”, Dec. 21, 2017.
Prime Minister Netanyahu rejected the United Nations General Assembly vote denouncing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Referring to the United Nations as the “theater of the absurd”, Prime Minister Netanyahu dismissed the “preposterous resolution”, thanking the countries that voted against, abstained or did not vote.
He stated in a televised address on Thursday night following the vote “Israel completely rejects this preposterous resolution. Jerusalem is our capital. Always was, always will be. But I do appreciate the fact that a growing number of countries refused to participate in this theater of the absurd. So I appreciate that, and especially I want to again express our thanks to President Trump and Ambassador Haley, for their stalwart defense of Israel and their stalwart defense of the truth.”
Of the 193-members of the General Assembly, a total of 128 countries voted in favor of the resolution. The United States, Israel, Guatemala, Honduras, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Micronesia, Palau and Togo voted against the resolution, with 35 countries abstaining.
