God out of the box
Theologians and Bible scholars want to put God in a box. They will often tell you that God will not go outside of what is written in the Bible. They will tell you that a God does not speak, that the Bible is the Word of God and that whatever God said is written in the Bible, and that God speaks through the Bible. They do not know God and that is why they speak such foolishness. They make predictions about what will happen based on their interpretation of the Scriptures and of the prophecies as recorded in the Bible, but when things do not work out as they predicted, they change their predictions, and foolish people keep on believing them and running after them. They are the blind leaders of the blind.
The psalmist said in Psalm 119 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." He was not speaking about the Bible, he was speaking about the Word of God, the Spirit of God, that speaks to those who have ears, and those who listen. Jesus said:"My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me." Those who are being led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God, they are the sons of God, and they know that you cannot put God in a box. You cannot predict God. You cannot predict what God will do next, because God is God. He is above all human thought, above all human imagination, and predictions.
God is God. Jesus Christ is Lord and He does as He pleases, but He reveals Himself to those who seek Him, and who listen to His voice. They will not be in darkness and they know that He is unlimited. You cannot put Jesus Christ in a box. He is the Lord God Almighty. Be still and know that He is God. Seek Him with all your heart and He will reveal Himself to you. He will give His Spirit in you and He will guide you into all truth.
May Jesus bless you.
