Here is a great quote from A. W. Tozer's "The Pursuit of God."
I think a new world will arise out of the religious mists when we approach our Bible with the idea that it is not only a book which was once spoken, but a book which is now speaking. The prophets habitually said, "Thus saith the Lord." They meant their hearers to understand that God's speaking is in the continuous present. [end of quote]
I like: "God's speaking is in the continuous present."
