GOD WILL BE HEARD 


CAN MAN SILENCE GOD?

 

Can man silence God by omitting, altering or denying His Word?

 

I ask you, can the wind dry up the Word of God, or the sea wash it away?

 

Is God dead that He can never speak again?

 

Tell me, has God abandoned man so that we will never hear from Him?

 

 

 

Man cannot silence the voice of God.  Man cannot limit His power.  God will be heard, today, tomorrow and forever. This is the God I serve.

 

What can man do to God? How can man silence the Truth that formed the Universe and maintains its existence? Why quiver and quarrel over the impossible? If God's Word lives within you, it is written upon your heart. It speaks to you from the very mouth from which it was formed.

 

 

THE LIVING WORD

 

If every printer refuses to print the Book of God, God's Word still lives.

 

If governments ban the Book of God, God's Word still lives.

 

If the mouth of every preacher be shut up, the Word of God still lives.

 

If every church door be locked and chained, the Word of God lives.

 

If every Bible be burned, the Word of God lives.

 

If pages be ripped out and torn from the Bible, changed or polluted, the Word of

God still lives.

 

For the Word of God is alive and it was meant to live within man.

 

The Word of God is our Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ.

 

The Word of God can not be killed or silenced.

 

The world will pass away, stars will disappear, but God's Word will live forever more.

 

The Word will continue to be scattered and planted and it will grow. Uproot it and it will grow over here. Trample it and it will grow over there.

 

It will emerge from fertile ground and field around the world to feed those seeking Truth.

 

 

 

WE WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH,THE WHOLE TRUTH,AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

 

There are many who believe that God's Word given to man is incomplete or tampered with.  There are those who believe God has entrusted His true Word to one man.  There are those who believe that which was given to us is only the beginning of God's Word.  There are those who believe the Old Testament is the end of God's Word.  There are those who simply do not believe in God or His Word.  There are those who believe man is in control and man can deny the power of God.

 

As BELIEVERS, we believe that by FAITH the Word was GIVEN  that  "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God. "John 1:1-2 (NKJV)

 

God is the Word and the Word is Truth, then all Truth should be of God.  If we are of God, we should not be confused by man's ideology and false doctrine. Yet, how do we tell the difference?  Why is it so difficult for man to know what is truth and what is not?  Is it that we are seeking to justify our desires and pride first? 

 

All truth glorifies God, not man.  All truth honors God, not man.  All truth gives power to God alone, not man. All truth renders Light, not darkness.   All truth magnifies God's unlimited power.  All truth renders praise to God, not man.  God's Truth will prevail because it is everlasting.  It cannot and will not change.

 

In His parables, Jesus used different scenarios to teach the same lesson of Truth. Those who could not see or hear beyond His spoken words, could not understand His message. The Bible presents us with the same challenge. There are many historical events and persons used to deliver God's message of Truth, but we must see and hear beyond the words.

 

God wants us to know Truth, that is why He sent His Son, Jesus, endwelled with The Word; and that is why He sent His Holy Spirit to dwell within us and write His Word upon our hearts.

 

Truth will lead us to know God, our Father and Jesus, His Son. By this, we are remade and given a new mind to set us free from the bondage of the world, that we may inherit the Kingdom and eternal life.

 

Will a man be disqualified because they do not know all of the Bible? We cannot know His Word until our hearts have been changed, our sight has been restored and our ears have been opened. A hardened heart can not see; nor can it hear; nor can it receive God's love; nor is it filled with holiness and righteousness; nor does it walk in the Light. We cannot come to know His Word, until we surrender to the Will of God and abide in His Word--Jesus Christ.

 

 

DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?

 

Satan seeks to confound the mind of every believer and cause confusion and chaos, keeping us arguing, debating over ink on a page, as if God's Word can be blotted out. Satan seeks to harden hearts, for he knows that a hardened heart cannot enter the Kingdom.

 

--And, while those wrapped up in legalism, tradition, hermeneutics, theology, philosophy, accusation and recitation, dispute authenticity, addition, omission and interpretation, Satan kindles their pride and hardens their heart toward  their neighbor, searing hate and judgment into their hearts.

 

They defile God's Word and cannot comprehend its purpose for their minds have been steered away from Truth. They seek to use God's Word for their own power and glory. They claim rights without righteousness. They cannot hear God. The Holy Spirit cannot lead them because they are led by pride. They do not abide in Jesus (The Word) and Godly love is forsaken, for they “emphasize the letter of the law at the expense of the spirit.”

 

 

A NEW COVENANT

 

God has given us a New Covenant and the Word of God is our inheritance. It is said in HEBREWS 8: 7-13

 

For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. Because finding fault with them, He says: “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them, says the Lord.

 

 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”13 In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away

 

 

 

THE SUM OF ALL FEAR

 

We must have true faith and trust in God.  True faith in God yields to His  omnipotence, recognizing that God has all power and authority.  God cannot be silenced. Yes, men try to disclaim the Bible. The Bible is misinterpreted, misused and taken out of context. It is slandered, banned and hated.

 

Believers have had to die for the Bible and one day even more will perish. Nonetheless, if we succumb to fear and paranoia, we show that we lack true faith and the love of God is not in us.

 

True faith in God is faith which puts no limits or constraints upon His  Power; neither does it give power and glory to man or darkness. Faith must abide in God's love for His love cast out fear.  Fear is Satan's vehicle to use us by means of addition or subtraction to altar an equation, to his benefit. 

 

1 John 4:17-19 (NKJV)

17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.

 

Satan wants God's people to remain in fear and under the constraint of religion--to remain in bondage to hatred and legalism.  Religion robs us of the opportunity to come to know God in a true and loving relationship.  To remain under religion is to remain blind and in darkness, wandering in the desert, as the children of old, without faith and trust in God.

 

When one is blind, they cannot see they are dead in sin. They cannot apply the knowledge and wisdom of the Bible because God's Word is alive.  It is the Living Word. The Word must attach itself to that which is also alive—born again of the Spirit. To know the Word of God is to be alive in the Word and His Holy Spirit teaches you and writes His Word upon your heart.

 

 The Bible is one form of proof that the Word of God livesWe are the other form of proof that the Word of God lives. If His Holy Spirit lives in us, there will be no doubt the Word is alive. We will shine His light and love and God Will Be Heard.

 

 

ANCHORED

 

Many say their faith is anchored in the Bible, the Word of God, which has survived as His authority for ages.  However, never forget that the Word of God is The Rock of Ages. “Be very sure your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock. This Rock is Jesus. He is the One. This Rock is Jesus. The Only One.  Be very sure. Be very sure. Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.” Those who belong to Him, hear Him, and through us, God Will Be Heard.

 

Father, we love you.  We thank you for your Son, the Word, who opens the eyes of the blind, unstops the ears of the deaf and frees the tongue of the mute; who tells the lame to rise up and walk; and gives those, who were once dead, eternal life. 


 I thank you for giving Your Holy Spirit to live in us that we may be proof of your Living Word. Endow us with Your Wisdom to speak boldly in spirit and in truth, perfected in Your Love, void of fear, anchored in the Lord, having all confidence in Your Power, to the glory of Your Name, through Christ Jesus. Amen

 

By the Grace and Mercy of God

 

Your Servant
