CAN I ADVISE GOD AS ABRAHAM AND MOSES DID? (Part 2)

He only did a playback of God’s intention

          The Hebrew for ‘directed’ in Isaiah 40:13 is: tâkan (taw-kan’): ‘to regulate, measure, estimate, to balance, that is, measure out (by weight or dimension); figuratively to arrange, equalize, through the idea of levelling (mentally estimate, test ).’ For any being to achieve this feat he must be on a par with the Entity of Isaiah 40:12, “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?” This, like my Pastor, Rev. Chris Okotie will say, “It is impossicant” (a humorous derivative of two negating ‘impossible’ and ‘can’t’). Do you have an idea of the amount of water in the universe? One of the palms of God takes all of it! By stretching the middle finger away from His thumb (that) is too long to calculate the entire space of the universe. He knows the mind of every individual from eternity past to eternity to come!

‘Counsellor’ is ı̂ysh (eesh): ‘man, male, husband’. Who can stand side by side Him, to whom the dusts of creation is like a few spoonfuls, and who has placed the mountains and the hills where they are found? Who is wise enough to instruct Him? ‘Taught’ is yâda (yaw-dah’) ‘to know (properly to ascertain by seeing); used in a great variety of senses, figuratively, literally, euphemistically and inferentially (including observation, care, recognition; and causatively instruction, designation, punishment, etc.).’ Who can measure up this Jehovah who measures the entire universe so effortlessly?

Some will still want to hold tenaciously onto Isaiah 45:11 of “command ye me,” but before giving the order of your command consider Isaiah 45:9, “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?” It looks very much a rhetoric question, needing not an answer as to whether your Maker should or can be commanded.

Isaiah 40

Psalm 115:16 “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.” At the end of the six days of creationism God made Adam the sole governor of the vastness of the world. Sin caused Adam to forfeit his ownership of the earth. At the great Deluge it was Noah who stood in for mankind. To establish the dispensation of the promise, God chose Abraham. He chose Isaac, Jacob and the nation of Israel from which emanated the ultimate choice: Jesus! It was easy for Abraham to see that he had been chosen to save some out of the annihilation of Sodom and Gomorrah. Prayer simply means ‘talking to God’. Moses spoke the mind of the righteous God, reminding Him even as he stood in the capacity of man – to whom the earth has been donated through divine operation.

If you think you can actually counsel God then you have not understood scripture according to Job 36:23, which says “Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity? Let us study the key words involved. ‘Enjoined’ is paqad (paw-kad’), meaning: ‘1. to visit (with friendly or hostile intent) 2. (by analogy) to oversee, muster, charge, care for, miss, deposit.’ The word ‘way,’ derek (deh’-rek), is ‘1. a road (as trodden) 2. (figuratively) a course of life or mode of action, often adverb.’ While ‘wrought’ pa`al (paw-al’) is: ‘to do or make (systematically and habitually), especially to practise;’ ‘iniquity’ in the Hebrew is`evel (eh’-vel) (or lavel {aw’-vel} and (feminine) lavlah {av-law’}; or owlah {o-law’}; or .olah {o-law’};) and it means: ‘(moral) evil.’

Moses talks to God

                                    Who can counsel Jehovah God ? Moses?

God made His word readily available to His saints who merely did a playback into the Divine ears of the Most High. God checked it out and it was according to His purposeful stand, so, Jehovah released His intended beneficence. Man has to ask for that which must pass the legal requirement of the celestial assizes. It is for this reason that we must be adequately connected.

1Corinthians 2:1, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” Now the word ‘instruct’ is sumbibazō (soom-bib-ad’-zo): ‘to cause a person to unite with one in a conclusion or come to the same opinion, to prove, demonstrate; to teach, instruct, one.’ Ginōskō (ghin-oce’-ko) is the Greek for ‘known’ meaning: ‘to know absolutely.’ Without Christ, who shows us the Father, through the energy of the Holy Spirit, we cannot have the necessary faith by which the thrice holy Father is approached.   (Concluded)
