God chose men to speak His Word.
They spoke according to the visions they received.
They served as ministers of God’s Word through the Word of God coming to them.
They spoke in spite of themselves.
God set aside his feeling and his thought and gave them revelation.
The Word of God came to them irrespective of their condition.
They neither added their own opinion nor mingled their own feeling or thought in with God’s Word.
In other words, God merely employed the man’s mouth to utter His Word.
This is typical of the Old Testament ministers of the Word.
The Holy Spirit gave the Word to a particular individual and so controlled that person that there could be no error in God’s Word as propagated them.
