” So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. ” Romans 10: 17. Biologically,” hearing “ is the process by which humans using ears, detect and perceive sounds. Sounds are pressure waves transmitted through some medium, usually air or water. Sounds waves are characterized by frequency (measured in cycles per second, cps, or Hertz, Hz), an amplitude, the size of the waves. ( Biology encyclopedia ).
In the Spirit realm, hearing (ear) means ” in the ears “, is for obedience, for the ears and ” hearing ” signify obeying. As the ears not only hearing and notice, but also obedience, therefore the Word frequent mention is made of speaking ” in the ears “, and “ reading in the ears “, of people, and not speaking and reading ” before them “; as in the following passages in the Bible:
-” Speak in the ears of the people.” Exodus 11: 2;
-” Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgements which I speak in your ears this day. ” Deuteronomy 5: 1;
-“ Hear thou these words that I speak in thine ears, and in the ears of all people. ” Jeremiah 28: 7;
-” When Jesus had ended all the words in the ears of the people. ” Luke 7: 1.
As the ear, and hearing, signify the reception of truth, notice, and obedience, thus the first and the last of faith, therefore it was so often said by the Lord. ” He that have an ear to hear, let him hear ” Matthew 11: 15. And because by the deaf, that is, those who are not in the faith of truth, because they are not in the knowledge and consequent perception of it; therefore when the Lord healed one that was deaf ” He put His finger into his ears, and said, EPHPHATHA, that is, Be opened. And straightaway his ears were opened Mark 7: 32-35.
Faith is prompt by the hearing of God’s word ( God’s word is God : John 1:1) whom have the power to create things ( including human being: Genesis 2: 7 ). To accept the spontaneous nature of faith, we really need to understand the inherent power in the word of God. we need to investigate what the scripture say about itself. The Bible states ” All scriptures is given by inspiration of God “ 2 Timothy 3:16.The word inspiration in the text means ” to breathe “. God’s scripture is the product of His breathe, or God breathed-mess; God himself speaks (or breathes ) the scripture.
