Back in 1978, God spoke to me through a billboard advertisement for Guinness!
I used it when I wrote to my parents about me recently becoming a Christian, at which they had been horrifed.

The result was that both parents came to the Lord! Afterwards, my mother always claimed that I could not have written such a letter!
When she died last year, I found it carefully wrapped up and preserved amongst her effects.

I don't think that Guinness's advertising agency intended to speak for the Lord when they came up with that advert.

Yes I get your post..thanks

But the donkey spoke through it's mouth - I don't get this post  .... sorry.

It was a little tongue in cheek Tes apologies.  I have removed the 1 solitary word butt from my original post, it should make sense now. 

Point was no one should assume God only speaks through man when He clearly can use anything as evidenced by the Ass not only speaking but being the only one to see the Angel of the Lord, until God opened Balaam's eyes.

A little exercise in getting people to stretch their legs outside their theological boxes.

I been looking at how God speaks to His people and various ways He does that. 

The assumption is that all prophets, seers etc...people who are conduits for God's revelation and voice are all basically people, that He requires humanic tongues to do this.

However, it seems that God can and does even use a Ass's to do this.

Therefore, i can only assume from that, that prophets, seers etc..are not just of the human variety as evidenced with the talking Ass scripture.  I capitalise Ass because God made it holy speaking through it.


God does not speak through human asses when He has animal asses and even stones that can cry out  imho - twinc

some would have us accept that since HE has spoken to us through human donkeys and asses, all claiming inspiration and guidance etc - twinc
