Bible Basics: Part 4 Session with Michael Pearl from the Big Texas Shindig

Michael Pearl:  More than 3,000 times the Bible references God speaking. I just looked these up about four days ago. "Thus sayeth the Lord," 854 times. "The word of the Lord came under the prophet," 277 times. "And God sayeth," 46 times, "The Lord said," 221 times. "The Lord sayeth," 12 times. "Lord spake," 13 times. "Voice from heaven say," 9. "Spirit sayeth," "The Lord has said," "Lord spake," "The Lord has spoken."

Now, there's additional ones. That's all I could get on the page. But it totals out to about 3,000 times. The Bible claims that God is speaking. Now, the word of God, which people will still admit is the word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, is composed of words. Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and the judgments, and all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the Lord has said will we do."

Now, think about it. God's name is the word of God. Jesus' name is the word of God. And when He gave us a book, he gave it to us in words. Not words which man's wisdom teacheth, but words which the Holy Ghost teacheth.

He said write the words down, write all the words down. Write them plain. All the words which the Lord has said will be do. Moses wrote all the words of the Lord. Behold the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with us concerning all these words.

Joshua said of the children of Israel, come hither and hear the words of the Lord your God. Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God and took a great stone and set it there on the oak. There was a sanctuary, the Lord and Joshua said, "Unto all the people behold these stones shall be a witness unto us. For it hath heard.

The stone heard all the words of the Lord which he spake onto us. It shall be there for witness unto you lest ye deny your God." You remember that passage in the New Testament when the people were praising Jesus and the scribes and Pharisees said tell them to be quiet?

Jesus said if they didn't praise me, the stones would cry out. That's based on that passage right there. They put a stone up, and they read the words of God, and let the stone hear the words of God.

When he got through, he said, "Now that's going to be a witness because that stone has heard all the words of God." Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people. He came to pass when Jeremiah made to speaking unto all the words of the Lord their God, for which the Lord their God had sent to them. Even all these words.

The scripture's wonderful. [laughs] I love it. It cuts, the Bible says, like a knife. Piercing to the dividing us under soul and spirit and joints and marrow. It is the discerner of the thoughts and intents the heart. In these two lessons, the Holy Spirit will discern your thoughts and intents, and see if you're a Bible believer or a man believer.

Now, I'm going to go beyond the Scripture. I'm going to go into history. I'm going to go into some of the different writers and what some people have said. I'm going to show you the facts of the case. The word is composed of words. They believe they're His words. They sang His praise. "Thou art my portion oh Lord, I've said that I would keep thy words. Turn it my repute, behold all, pour out my spirit upon you, and I'll make known my words unto you."

The reason why I'm reading all these verses is I could say this once or twice and it would go over your head. But I'm doing what they do in school. Repetition. I'm showing you that this is not some abstract concept I've pulled out of a few verses. This is the tenet of what God has given us. If you neglect this, you're neglecting the entire word of God.

"Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein, for the time is at hand." God's word and words are identical.

The Lord said unto Moses, "Is the Lord's hand waxed short? That it shall not see whether my word will come to pass"‑‑ notice the word "word," singular ‑‑ "shall come to pass unto thee." Moses went out and told people the words. So, God has identified his word, singular, with his words, plural. They're one and the same.
