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! 🙂
