God’s imagination is fascinating. He is an intriguing person. He cannot be put in a box.
As far as we know, God has not told us, “I am the LORD God, I speak like this or I reveal myself like this.” So, it is not possible for any person to make a conclusive statement on how God speaks. To attempt to do so would amount to limiting God.
From the scriptures, we can see God communicating in diverse ways as it pleased him. In person he visited and spoke to Adam and Eve. He spoke to Cain. He spoke to Noah. He spoke to Abraham and visited him in person. He sent angels with messages to people in the Old Testament. He showed Pharaoh a dream. He spoke to Moses himself and through a cloud. He sent an angel to Daniel. He used handwriting on the wall to deliver a message to a heathen king. He sent prophets to kings. Through a donkey to a corrupt priest, He spoke. He showed Ezekiel a vision. He spoke audibly from heaven endorsing his Son, Jesus Christ. He came in person and walked the earth as a man giving us the most powerful messages of salvation. He showed Peter a dream. He spoke audibly to Apostle Paul. He showed the book of Revelations to John.
To narrow down how God communicates to his creation to one method or a few media is to deny him who he is. He is a creative God, the intricate design of creation was done by him. God’s imagination is fascinating. He is an intriguing person. He cannot be put in a box. He designed the rose, the banana tree, and the cactus plant. He created the minerals of the earth. He created the ant, the elephant, the whale, and man. He created the orange, the cocoa plant, the almond, and cashew. He made the moon, the sun, the earth, and all the planets and their moons.
God can speak to anybody (believer or non-believer) in any way that He wishes to.
Jesus Christ said, “My sheep hear my voice.” God’s children hear His voice. When God speaks, it’s undeniable. His children hear Him and know it is He because He lives in you in the person of the Holy Spirit.
