BLESSINGS TO THOSE HEARING THE WORD OF GOD,
A few years back a Brother (originally from Israel) gave me a hand held Bible recording playing the entire Holy Bible. I think he did so because he had often told me you should know all of His Word.
I enjoyed hearing The Word on my forty minute plus ride to and from work each day. I was surprised when I heard of the killings by the Israelites coming into the Promised Land, and I must admit I found more joy in hearing the New Testament although I had just got into the Gospels when the battery went dead.
I am going to need to visit my Brother and see what he says about all of this “Faith comes by hearing”.
Romans 10:15-20 NIV
15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”[a]
16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”[b] 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. 18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did:
“Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.”[c]
19 Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says,
“I will make you envious by those who are not a nation;
I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding.”[d]
20 And Isaiah boldly says,
“I was found by those who did not seek me;
I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.”[e]
