Shut Up!

That is not the most inviting title for a post, I know, but hear me out. 🙂

Isaiah 43:1 “Listen to Me in silence, you islands and coastlands, And let the nations gain their strength;
Let them come near, then let them speak; Let us come together for judgment [and decide the issue between us concerning the enemy from the east]. source

Let the Nations gain their strength.  Would we the people of America or any nation desire to gain strength? Rhetorical question.

Then shut up and listen to The LORD GOD.

Let them come near, THEN let them speak.

Until we have come near The LORD GOD of Creation, until we have come together with Him to know His judgment on a matter, we would do well to shut up. And when we have gained His Counsel and we are schooled in His Judgment, speak! Speak, proclaim, and publish it on the rooftops!

Matthew 10:27  (AMP) 27 What I say to you in the dark (privately), tell in the light (publicly); and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops [to many people].  source

And there we have it!

Until next time . . . whenever that is! 🙂


It’s been too long; even so I don’t have a lot to say today but “learn to do well” was as a LED to me, so I’m here to share.

Isaiah 1: 16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it source 

Doing that which is against GOD comes naturally; we must LEARN to do well. We must be taught to do what is right. And what is right? We cannot know unless we obey verse 18. Come together with the LORD and learn from Him. What did JESUS say? (See Matthew 11:29 – click HERE)

Learn to do well. That’s what He said.  Learn. Learn to do well by learning from HIM.
