Daily Bread 9/5/2023


Daily Bread – September 5, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Acts 4:31 – And they having prayed the place was shaken in which they were assembled, and they were all Holy Spirit filled and spoke the Word of God with boldness. The Encounter & Bold Proclamation Of God’s Word In Exodus 19:18, Sinai shook at the presence of the Lord, “All of Mount Sinai was smoking because YHWH had descended upon it in the fire; its smoke ascended like the smoke of the furnace and the entire mountain shook exceedingly.” Both the people of Israel and the mountain shook at the presence of the Lord (Exodus 19:16,18). Having prayed and the place having been shaken by the Holy Spirit, the disciples were dependent upon Him to speak the Word of God. The phrase “the Word of God” may be associated with the Old Testament phrase “the Word of the Lord” which is first spoken of in Genesis 15:1. It is used of the prophets and of the special anointing given to them to declare by the Spirit what was in the mind of God (Jeremiah 1:2). The dependency the Old Testament prophets had to the authority of the Word of the Lord is summed up by the statement of Balaam to Balak: And Balaam replied and he said unto the servants of Balak, “If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the Word of the Lord, my God, to do more or less.” (Numbers 22:18).
