While reading through 2 Ki 18, Rabshakeh is taunting the "Judahs" (Israelites had been carried away to Assyria by this point), and King Hezekiah. 

 

This verse got my attention: 

 

2 Kings 18:29 "Then Rabshakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and spake, saying, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria"

 

Rabshakeh cried the word of the king of Assyria. Was it the king's actual words? I don't think we are told. But Rabshakeh was Sennacherib's representative. He had the full authority of the King. He was his voice. I've seen this same sort of thing in Lord Of The Rings, The Return Of The King. The ugly guy couldn't see worth a ... umm, but he was certainly the voice of Sauron. 

 

Curious question: Who is the herald of God's voice today? And how do you test those voices? 

 

I have to go to the Word. We can listen to any man, but how do I know that is the voice of God? The Bible has got to be my standard.

Never trust anyones word 100 percent. Take what they say to scripture. If what they say lines up, still dont trust what that person says in the future 100 percent. Keep taking it to the bible. If its something really important, you will know because the spirit inside you will let you know. Most preachers I have listened to have a lot of truth in thier message, but every so often one says something thats not quite right. I treatwhat others say like fish, eat what you can, and throw the rest back. But ultimatly the bible is the authority on truth. So keep doing what you are doing, double check for yourself in the bible.

A herald would be any born again believer who will stand up and speak proclaiming the Word of the Lord out loud. A messenger for God like glad we herald the message of his coming is and example. You will know the voice of God in people you hear because they will speak what is found in the Bible. You should study and meditate on the word of God reading the word. So that when others speak the word of God you will hear it within their speech. It is important to know what is in the Bible for yourself and rely on God to keep your heart and not trust solely in the voice of others. I'm glad you chose the Bible as your standard.

You have wolves in sheeps clothing to worry about.  But there are ambassadors of God around which is anyone who has the indwelling of the holy spirit.  Also in the NT it seemed like the religious people were the ones who disbelieved the most.  Just my 2c.
