Acts 22:9 “My companions saw the light, but they did not understand the voice of him who was speaking to me.”
Acts 9:7 Luke wrote, “ The men travelling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone.”
- The men accompanying Saul/Paul saw the brightness of the light but couldn’t see the person of Christ.
- The men heard the voice of Christ but they did not understand it.
- The men saw the effect upon Saul/Paul but they themselves do not fall to the ground.
They were there in the thick of the action but they could not see, they did not understand and they were not affected.
The reason being is this is Saul’s experience. The call was not to “men, men” it was “Saul, Saul”. Everyone needs their own personal experience of God. You cannot ride on the back of someone else. Sadly there will always be spectators of the moves of God.
